" Kate was fantastic! She helped me find a house that was convenient and within my price range - which was a challenge. When I had questions or issues she was always quick to respond and help. I was very impressed with Kate’s professionalism and responsiveness. She answered many of my questions before I could even ask them and I knew she was there to look out for me 100%. She was a pleasure to work with and she had incredible knowledge about each area we explored. When the deal was complete she followed through to make sure everything was going well and I was happy."

" Kate represented us as both buyers and then sellers of our house in Northeast DC. There were a number of challenges that arose in both the buying and selling processes and Kate guided us steadily through with great expertise and poise. Not only did Kate demonstrate a great depth of knowledge in the market, her formidable negotiation skills achieved outcomes that were above and beyond our expectations. She even managed the process of having our property on HGTV’s House Hunters!"

– Eliza & Chris

" We will never consider another realtor as long as we are in the DMV area. Kate is knowledgeable about the different neighborhoods, and she pointed out things we would have never considered as first-time homebuyers. From the beginning with identifying properties, to going through the home inspection and financing processes, to now when she still checks in on us, she has exceeded our expectations."

– Ivy & Mark

" I would recommend Kate to any of my friends or loved ones in a heartbeat! She originally worked with my family through my (now) sister-in-law as a first-time home buyer and her experience with Kate was so solid that my family has worked with Kate 3 times since, on both sides of the buying cycle! Kate worked with me as a first-time home buyer and was masterful in the process, consulting me to make my own life decisions but guiding the entire exchange to ensure we got the best deal possible. Since then, I have also referred her outside the family to a co-worker and friend, who could not have been happier with how Kate handled their first-time real estate purchase. They had a very competitive bid cycle, and despite not being the highest bidder, by the end, Kate’s sound advice and competency when it came to competitive bidding enabled them to have their first offer accepted! We are all absolutely in love with our homes and are incredibly appreciative to Kate for all her hard work!"

" As first-time home-buyers, my husband and I searched for months for our first home before friends recommended Kate as a realtor. Thank goodness they did! Kate was an incredibly responsive, forward-leaning, and informative realtor throughout our home-buying process which proved to be particularly important in the northern Virginia / Washington DC market. Kate was our go to person for understanding the details of the home-buying process, leveraging our options to get the best house for the best price, and ensuring everything went smoothly once our offer was made. Kate was always respectful of our limits, attentive to our wishes, and honest in her advice. We will definitely look to Kate in the future and recommend her to our friends and family. She gives you the edge you need in this tough and fast-moving market."

– Alexandra

" Kate was extremely helpful, patient and attentive to my needs throughout the home building process. As a first time home buyer, Kate not only educated me, but offered advice for dealing with the tricky DC area market. I am very thankful to have worked with Kate and owe a large part of my success in finding my new home to her. "

– Mallory

" Kate was a lifeline in getting through the process of buying a home in DC. She was patient and responsive, scheduled meetings at my convenience, and is very knowledgeable about what to check for when buying a home. She was always respectful of what I said I wanted in terms of price, size and location. On a personal level, Kate is friendly and very thoughtful."

– Pallavi

" Kate is the best! She is thorough, punctual, and always willing to go the extra mile for you! She is ALWAYS working for you!"

– Josh

" Kate is very easy to work with. She is very efficient, knowledgeable and professional. She goes the extra mile needed to help you find your new home. She is very patient and kind. She knows her properties and the areas she serves and is always prepared. "

– Ralph and Renee

" We worked with Kate this past spring to purchase our first home in Alexandria, Virginia. As first time home owners, we were new to the process, but Kate walked us through each step of the way, which included answering our countless questions. There were times when it all felt a bit daunting, but Kate's professionalism and expertise in the areas that we were looking made us feel confident in the decisions that we were making. She was incredibly accommodating with the times that we were available to look at homes, and we never felt as though she was pushing us in a direction that we were not comfortable with. When our bid was accepted on a home in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, Kate continued to work with us up until our closing date to ensure that we had all of the information that we needed. We are currently in our new home and couldn't be happier with our house or our realtor!"

– Katie and Jody

" Kate was easy to deal with and responsive to our needs during the home buying process. As first time home buyers, Kate made us feel like she was always protecting our best interest. She was knowledgeable about the area we bought in and guided us to make a strong negotiating strategy. Further, Kate helped solve problems that arose during the closing process. We recommend prospective home buyers to use Kate Hennigan."

– Sean and Molly

" As first-time home buyers, we were very nervous about the overall process of searching for a home in D.C. Without a real idea of what we wanted or what we could afford, we relied heavily on our realtor to help us through the process. Kate held our hands through the whole process. She was patient, informative and always available for consultation. She found us a beautiful home and we couldn't be happier! "

– Noah and Dana

" We worked with Kate last year to purchase our first home, and the entire process was positive. She was extremely accommodating, and made herself readily available to us through email, over the phone, and in-person. Once we found the right place, she was really great with the negotiation process from start to finish. We truly felt that she had our best interest in mind and worked to get us the best deal possible. Kate’s a true professional, and is outstanding at what she does. I’d highly recommend her to prospective home buyers."
