Great job, Kathy, and thank you very much for helping us getting our house despite current market difficulties.

As a rule I don't like realtors...that being said Kathy is one of only two realtors I've used over the course of my life I can say I like very much. Kathy is personable and very good at what she does. I never had reason to believe she had anything but my best interest in mind during this very long problematic sale. None of the typical condescending red jacket sales b.s. Just straight up and forthright. She was a great agent that worked very hard for this sale. ~ Bob Leyshion, Jr, Nokesville Va.
We met Kathy and interacted with her in a class not related to real estate and were impressed with her on a personal level. We had been wanting to sell our home for some time but were unsure how to find a realtor with whom we could work.
During class we found Kathy to be friendly, open, a good communicator and a good listener. At break time when we learned she was a realtor, we realized we had met someone with whom we felt comfortable and subsequently asked her to look at our home to evaluate it for sale. Her approach and professionalism instilled confidence in us in selecting her as our sales agent.
Kathy was consistent in keeping the process moving forward, even when we were dragging our feet, having difficulties, emotional and otherwise, in letting go of thirty years of memories.
Kathy made the whole process, from start to finish, about as painless as selling a house can be.
We would have sold our home sooner since we had already purchased our current home, but we dreaded the whole process and had been avoiding what appeared to us to be an overwhelming undertaking. Kathy changed those dynamics and with her guidance and support we were able to work through that process and sell our home. ~ Joe and Carol Krofcheck
Kathy Holster was great! She helped us find a great house and helped us through all the challenges along the way. I would highly recommend her services. ~ Ashley, Arlington
KATHY WAS GREAT TO WORK WITH ESPICALLY BECAUSE WE WERE IN A TIME CRUNCH AND SHE UNDERSTOOD OUR NEEDS ~ CHUCK GENCK
Kathy Holster made my first time home buyer experience easy and low stress. She made her schedule flexible in order to help me work around my work schedule and help me find the perfect home. She took me step-by-step through the whole home buying process, and made me feel very comfortable with the decisions I needed to make along the way. I am so thankful I had her by my side! I would highly recommend her for you if you are a first time home buyer like me. Thank you Kathy for everything! ~ Juliet, NoVA
It was a pleasure to work with Kathy on the purchase of my home. She stayed in touch with me for over a year until I was ready to get serious with my home search...and when I did, she helped me find the perfect condo within one month and the offer accepted on the first try! No small feat in an extremely competitive housing market! Kathy is very friendly, approachable, and hard-working. She took the time to understand exactly the type of home I was looking for and was very patient. She always responded very quickly, was punctual, and flexible with her schedule. Kathy really cares about her clients, looks out for their best interests, and treats them like family. As a first-time homebuyer who was just learning the ropes, her patience, guidance, and attentiveness were critical. I would definitely work with Kathy again and would recommend her to friends and family. ~ Stephanie Showman, Alexandria, VA
Kathy Holster is an exceptional realtor! She knows the area and and provides lots of insight on how to get top dollar for any type of property you need to sell. We have used Kathy Holster with selling three of our properties and could not be more pleased. We will definitely seek Kathys help in any future real estate needs. ~ Lisa & Michael Cofield, Delaplane, VA
Kathy did an excellent job in assisting me throughout the entire home buying process! In addition to being an expert in the real estate process, she also is an expert in the Front Royal area. Kathy provided me with a lot of Comps for townhomes that recently sold in my area. This really helped me with regards to knowing what offer I needed to make on my townhouse. I cannot thank her enough for her knowledge, advice, and outstanding communication throughout the entire process! ~ Tom Fanucci, Front Royal Virginia
Kathy sold this house for my aging father and coordinated with me, as the Power of Attorney. Kathy was super responsive and effective in all aspects, making this transition as easy as possible for my dad (to minimize his involvement and stress!) including coordinating all services to prepare the home for listing. We really appreciate how easy everything was! ~ Amy Wakefield, Ashburn VA
Kathy Holster is a true professional. Responsive, smart, friendly, knowledgeable, competent - she made our (rushed) house buying experience enjoyable. The whole process for us was made easy because Kathy was quick and efficient and stayed focused on what really mattered. We felt like we were in great hands and we will absolutely work with Kathy again in the future. Shes really wonderful! ~ Anniki Laine & Tom McDougall (Warrenton, VA)
Kathy helped me purchase this same house in July. She did an excellent job and when a family emergency kept me from keeping the house, I chose her to sell it for me in September.
Kathy knows the area and the current market conditions well. She is great at dealing with difficult buyers and handled challenges very well.
Kathy is a truly wonderful person. She treats all parties involved with respect and dignity
She listened to my opinions and concerns and we worked together to get my house sold quickly!
Both buying and having to quickly sell this property was emotionally hard for me. Kathy made this situation go as smoothly and quickly as possible. She cares about her clients and gives more than 100% for them! ~ Robin Woods; Wickenburg, AZ
Kathy Holster was recommended by my daughter and she was a delight to work with. I had found a house I was interested in and she made buying that a house a dream come true. We had a very tight time frame to get everything done. She was very professional and personable at the same time. I would recommend Kathy to everyone and would and will use Kathy again for any real estate needs I have in the future. She is the best! ~ Robin Woods, Culpeper, VA
Kathy is quick to respond and friendly. She always has a answer and is quick to learn what we may need to know about the property. Our experience with Kathy has been top notch and we are truly blessed to have been introduced during my Chamber of Commerce days. ~ Karinn Fry. Front Royal
Kathy is an amazing real estate agent and a wonderful person. We had a unique horse farm property that had very few comps. She was reassuring that she could help us get it sold. Her marketing blanketed a large area and she even listed the property on specialized web sites that increased the likelihood of reaching the type of buyer looking for our type of property.
When the buyer found us, Kathys rare blend of deep empathy, firm commitment to us, and understanding of what we needed gave us complete confidence in her. Her negotiation skills and experience in the real estate field led us to getting everything we wanted out of the sale.
I highly recommend Kathy as a total professional and down to earth person who will give it her all on your behalf. ~ Bobbi McIntyre
Kathy went above and beyond to ensure we were taken care of and satisfied with our selection.
Kathy doesnt do less than excellent. Excellent service, excellent attitude and excellent person!
If we had to do it all over again wed choose her over and over.
10/10! ~ Brooke Flores, Warrenton
We were already in the process of leaving the area when we contracted with Kathy. She brought in a designer to pick new paint colors, found a painter and coordinated the painting, repairs, cleaning, even got rid of old furniture we didnt want to bring. And to top it off she sold the house in three days. It couldnt have been a better experience.. ~ Heather Newell, Bedford, NH
Kathy is passionate about making sure everything is nice and presentable both for the buyer and seller. ~ Paul Bartalotti, California
My husband and I decided -a bit unexpectedly - to jump on a property we viewed during an open house on a Sunday afternoon. We called Kathy, who immediately engaged and saw to it that we won the contract to the new property (against other bidders) and that we met our obligation of selling our home inside of a 30-day contingency window. In fact, she sold our home IN FOUR DAYS. She was the consummate professional from beginning to end, guiding us and handling every facet of the sale and purchase promptly, efficiently, and with excellent communication. She managed to also become a real friend and hero for us as we leaned heavily on her - she showed true grace and humanity to a couple of stressed out people as she led us through both transactions. We could not possibly have asked for more and will recommend Kathy at every opportunity (in fact, she is already working with our daughter and son in law!) ~ Jan Szklennik, Broad Run, VA
Kathy Holster is amazing. She worked hard to make sure our house was seen, and we had so many people come to see it as soon as it went on the market. She was patient, knowledgeable and professional throughout the process. I trusted that she was working in our best interest and would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. I can't thank Kathy enough for making the sale of our home quick and painless. ~ April Barker, Warrenton, Virginia
Kathy was very professional in our initial meeting and took the time to take care of our needs.
She made good suggestions to enhance the property and recommended a contractor who was affordable and effecient. ~ Patti catlett va
My son used Kathy Holster for his first time home purchase and felt she made it so easy to understand and went through it all together with him so we wanted to meet with her a give it a try even though we had used a ReMax agent in the past. Kathy has lived in FQ county forever and raised her family there so familiarity was key in getting it right from the get go! We made sure our home was decluttered and move-in ready and priced fairly in this hot market; it worked and sold in a few days with multiple offers! Kathy was knowledgeable and informed, the process was smooth and pleasant; now a new family is very happy to call it home and raise their children there a make lots of memories as we did! ~ Case
Kathy is a pleasure to work with. She is dedicated and works hard for her clients. She is trustworthy and helped us out tremendously through a difficult process. ~ Tim & Marsha LeBrecht, Front Royal VA
She was there for every inspection and repair. She was a great helper with the contract.
Every time we met her, she was early. She never rushed us, and made us feel very comfortable about our purchase.
We had a little bit of negotiating with the seller, and she helped us with that. In the end, we felt we had gotten a good deal. It was very smooth. ~ Margann Green, Warrenton VA
Kathy was excellent to work with! Went out of her way to track down inspectors and various other bits of information for this sale due to my long hours at work amd limited access to the internet. She helped make this process incredibly smooth. ~ Jeremy P
Professionalism, fairness, and commitment were the attributes that won my confidence.
Kathy has a keen understanding of what constitutes a reasonable turn-key plan to enable a prompt sale.
The rating of "excellent" does not come near the abilities and focus Kathy demonstrated in the sale of my home. She is uniquely qualified and truly is a client advocate.
The professional relationships that Kathy leveraged in support of the sale were key elements is enabling not only a successful transaction but confirmed the ratings earned by her. ~ Felix Rivera, Gainesville, VA
Kathy was super helpful throughout the entire process. It was my first time buying a home so she understood my concerns and answered any questions I had extremely thoroughly and not only answered them, but made sure I understood the answers and the decisions I was making.
Buying a house always involves some trade-offs - location, price etc and I had a hard time dealing with these trade-offs so Kathy boiled all my requirements down to my top 3 must-haves and we worked our way from there. We looked at several houses (pretty much all over NOVA) and even when I decided I didn't like any of them, she constantly remained very patient and offered more houses to look at.
There were a couple of houses she didn't recommend at all because she noticed several issues with them - I really appreciated that feedback.
In the end, I believe we ended up with the best house out of the lot with regards to location, price, age, quality etc and Kathy helped me get a very good deal on it.
I'm very happy we got the opportunity to work together :) ~ William M. Fairfax VA
We met Kathy at an open house while we were out browsing homes one weekend. We were very impressed with her knowledge of the area, and she seemed to really grasp what my husband and I were looking for in our home. Definitely had a personal touch. We had a great connection and knew we wanted Kathy to be our agent.
Kathy was truly amazing in every aspect, and always honest and genuine. We would highly recommend Kathy to our friends and family, and anyone looking for a home in Northern Virginia! ~ Danielle Rath, Centreville, VA
