Kathy received her law degree from the George Mason School of Law in 1993 and enjoyed many years practicing in residential real estate settlements, family law and civil litigation. As a former divorce lawyer, Kathy has an eye for detail, advocates tirelessly for her clients’ interests, and knows how to negotiate contracts and resolve issues.

Kathy’s philosophy in providing excellent service to her clients is quite simple: she has her client’s best interest in mind, first and foremost. With an optimal listing price, she aims to sell her listings in the shortest amount of time with the fewest problems. And for her buyers, Kathy listens to their “wish list” of desired features and finds a home that satisfies their wants and needs, in the right location, at the best possible price.

To say the least, Kathy has extensive knowledge about living in Northern Virginia and will provide solid guidance to her clients on finding the home that fits their needs, desires and budget. She grew up in Burke and has lived and worked in many different areas of Northern Virginia, including Centreville, Fairfax, and Arlington. She raised her own family in Alexandria and has called it home for the last 22 years. She speaks from experience regarding what Northern Virginia has to offer its residents.

Kathy is married and has three children. In her spare time she enjoys playing tennis, traveling with her family, and walking the family dog, “Benny.”

" As a first time home buyer, I was apprehensive about the buying process and all my perceived unknowns. A family friend referred me to Kathy Hassett to explore my options and whether home buying made sense for me now. I won’t diminish the difficulty of looking at homes in the high demand area of the DMV, but Kathy was hands on through the entire process from pre-screening properties to helping discuss elements for making an attractive offer. We looked at dozens of homes and submitted more than one offer, but at each turn Kathy was positive and encouraging that with patience we’d find the right property for me. As a generally cautious individual Kathy provided a sounding board for concerns and offered her perspective when requested. Kathy maintained excellent communication during the process and was easily accessible via phone, email and in-person meetings without being pushy. While I hope to not need a real estate agent any time in the near future, Kathy will be the first person I reach out to for any future need."

" This past fall, my wife and I faced the challenge of searching for an apartment while living out of town. We couldn't praise Kathy more for her professionalism, honesty, flexibility, and dedication to finding us a new home. She made the process simple, advocated aggressively on our behalf during negotiations, and responded promptly to our many requests and questions. She made what could be a stressful and complicated process, an easy and exciting experience. Thank you, Kathy!"

" Kathy took the time to get to know us and the kind of home we would require for our busy lifestyle. We gave her our list of must-haves and she really knocked it out of the park with the listings she picked. She was super patient and kind during our search and always advocated for our best interests. We cannot recommend her enough for your real estate needs."

" Ms. Hassett took her time and assisted me while I was searching for a home. I had many 'musts' and Kathy was considerate in her efforts to meet my requirements. She made herself available and was always willing to adapt to my schedule to view properties, always with a delightful attitude. Ultimately, with Kathy's help, we found my new place together! During a stressful time for me, Kathy was my saving grace. I will definitely contact her again when I'm in the market for a new place."
