" Kathleen was nothing short of phenomenal! She somehow had our townhouse featured in the Washington Post for open houses to see the same weekend (July 2017). Followed by selecting a superb home staging company, and even rolling up her sleeves to pitch in and help getting the house ready for sale. So it should come as no surprise that our townhouse sold at the open house! Only outshined by getting $35k above market!
Next, Kathleen was incredibly patience and kind during our home search which took longer than expected. The most important aspect of a realtor should be listening to the home buyers. And Kathleen accomplished this many times over, only showing us homes that fit our criteria. Though we got out bid three times, Kathleen would say we’ll find the right home for you. That she did, it took a while, but we did find the house that was perfect for us and in no time it became our home... Thanks Kathleen "
" We hired Kathleen after interviewing three other real estate agents. We decided to go with Kathleen because of her great attitude and enthusiasm in selling our home. Due to her hard work and dedication our home sold in record time. Even after the home sold Kathleen worked tirelessly to ensure the transaction went smoothly and effortlessly. She did a great job coordinating the efforts between the buyer’s agent and Title Company and the entire time keeping us updated on the progress. Bottom line, we would hire Kathleen again."

" Working with Kathleen was nothing short of amazing! I needed to relocate to Virginia to be closer to DC and did not want to go the apartment route. She took the time to explain the rental process to me of what to expect. She also relieved much stress since there were numerous communication issues with the other realtor representing the owners. All in all she made a complicated process easy and quick with all my needs being met. I would definitely recommend her to anyone and use her again when it's time to buy a home. She is what a realtor should be: helpful, encouraging, and understanding. Thanks Kathleen!"
" Kathleen was a pleasure to work with. I'm a first time homebuyer and I felt confident that she always tried to protect my interests as best as possible. She is very kind, genuine, and communicative. I got the second condo we put a contract on and it meets all of my search criteria!"
" Working with Kathleen, we had peace of mind throughout the entire home buying process."
– Bethany and John
" Kathleen was great to work with in finding our rental in the Alexandria area. We contacted her from overseas and could not have asked for a more responsive agent! She listened to what we said and she had excellent advice and suggestions concerning our move. We could not have asked for a better agent and will be using her again for all of our future real estate needs!"
– Kristen and Dennis
" Kathleen was able to get our property leased within in one week of the listing going live. She was extremely responsive and very eager to achieve success. Our property did not sit unrented - our previous tenants moved out mid August and the new tenanted are moving in on September 1st!"
– Jenny and Brandon
" Kathleen was a delight to work with from the start! We were brand new to the area and she had endless patience with us as well as plentiful knowledge on all of the local communities. She is always professional and polite and though I don't want to move again anytime soon, I look forward to working with her again in the future!"
– Amanda and Phil
" Kathleen took the time to get to know us, and what we really wanted in a home. She helped us find the perfect house and made sure we’d be able to call it home. Throughout the house search and closing process, Kathleen worked tirelessly as our agent. She went above and beyond, while we were out of the country, to make sure that all of our inspections and repairs were coordinated and completed. Working with Kathleen, we had peace of mind throughout the entire home buying process."
– Bethany and John
" Working with Kathleen was a Godsend. She was patient, but really cared about my ideal dream home. As a first time buyer, I had no clue what I was in for, but she made the process so much easier than expected and fun. I don't look at Kathleen as only my realtor, but look at her as a friend. She was awesome and I will always be thankful to her for helping me and walking me through the process. She was always available and working for the best deal for me at all hours. I can't say enough how great it was to work with her! I'd recommend her to anyone! THANK YOU KATHLEEN!!!"
" Kathleen's attitude was outstanding. She is very knowledgeable, patient, and understanding. She makes herself available and always has a smile on her face. Terrific agent - will most certainly recommend her and your agency. "
" Ms. Dobbyn was outstanding - going out of her way to advocate for us, make connections with resources, and lead us through a difficult enterprise. We are grateful. "

" Kathleen sold my condo and purchased my new home, she was super helpful and a pleasure to work with. Overall, it was a great experience and I will definitely use her services again in the future."

" Kathleen was referred to me by my son. She was everything he had told me and more. Prompt, knowledgeable, and professional are just a few of the words he had used to describe her. I gave Kathleen strict parameters for price and location and she embraced the challenge. I think we found the perfect place!"

" I hired Kathleen based on a very positive recommendation from a coworker to help me find my first home in Alexandria, Virginia. I decided to go with Kathleen because she was very knowledgeable about the real estate market and she took the time with me that I needed to get comfortable with a very stressful process. Kathleen was always there when I needed her and I never felt rushed to make a decision. Once I put an offer in on a home, she gave me sound advice to improve my offer when there were multiple bidders. She continued to help me navigate a lot of back and forth with the seller's agent and the Title Company during closing and she did an excellent job of getting the seller to make fixes to the home that were discovered during the home inspection. I would definitely hire Kathleen again and highly recommend her!"
" Kathleen has the utmost patience. We searched for over a year for the right home, and she was gracious and patient every step of the way. Often times viewing homes meant bringing the entire family along (even multiple visits to some homes), and she was always there to help. Buying a home is a leap of faith and it was nice to have a trustworthy and knowledgeable professional at our side."
– Bridget H
" A friend of mine referred me to Kathleen when I was looking for a new home. Kathleen was a tremendous help in negotiating the terms of the sale, working tirelessly to smooth the way when it looked as if the seller wouldn't budge on making some needed repairs.
I hired her again to sell my previous home. I interviewed several other agents who were specialist in the neighborhood where it was located. Kathleen was certain that she could sell my home for a good 5-8% more than those agents tried to convince me the home was worth … and she was right. She worked hard to make sure that my home looked it's best before putting it on the market, and came through with a buyer as soon as we put the house on the market. In addition, Kathleen was a joy to work with, always pleasant and responsive."
" We met Kathleen at an open house during a fairly stressful time in our lives. She took a lot of time to show us many, many houses and was very attentive to our preferences.
We were on a time constraint because we had to get out of our current place quickly. She did not push us in to something we didn’t care for either with the timing issue.
Being a first time buyer, she was also extremely helpful with the loan process and got us in contact with a few companies that ended up working well for us.
We are very happy in our new home and would definitely recommend the Dobbyn Team! "
