“Kathy Dipp is the realtor you want when you are making a big investment and are competing against other buyers in a hot market. She is not there to make a sale, she is there to make sure you get what you want for the best value.
Kathy was patient every step of the way. She made sure she knew exactly what I was looking for and understood that I wasn't in a rush and wanted to make sure I found the perfect fit for me. When there were times I could not make it to a place Kathy would facetime me and take pictures. She is also very critical and notices the details that will lead to the bigger issues with a property.
After taking a break from looking and feeling disappointed that I couldn't find anything, Kathy encouraged me to keep looking. Little did I know she was correct and my place was about to be listed!
On a Monday morning, I emailed Kathy about a property that had just come on the market that I was interested in. It was perfect, filled with light, and even had the patio I had been searching for! Kathy immediately followed up and informed me that there were two other offers already on the property, but she talked the relator into allowing us to see the place that day.
As soon as I stepped into the condo I knew it was the one for me! It felt perfect and had the majority of my wishlist items. Kathy had gotten information about what was important to the seller and informed me on what I would need to include for my offer to be accepted. Within 2 hrs of seeing the place, my offer was accepted!
Kathy's charm, networking, and the ability to understand her client's needs and wants makes her the perfect realtor. She made it possible for me to beat out multiple offers, stay within my budget, and find my perfect condo.
I can't recommend Kathy highly enough to anyone that is looking to buy in the VA or DC area. No matter what you are looking for, trust Kathy with your search!”

“Kathy is everything you want in a realtor! She never pressures you, is attentive to detail, and works tirelessly on your behalf. She made the whole home-buying process stress-free and enjoyable. She exceeded our expectations at every step of the process. ”

“Kathy Dipp is the only agent I will work with in the Reston/DC area. She made the entire home selling process an absolute pleasure. I have now worked with Kathy to buy houses and sell houses and both experiences have been smooth, fun and enjoyable. In the past when I have bought or sold properties it was a stressful process. Kathy does everything in her power to reduce this stress and explain how she expects the process to work going forward. This could be in the form of answering a late night phone call or sending me a text letting me know the status of particular renovations. Kathy is particularly adept at explaining the benefit and expected returns of any expenditures she recommends. For example, she recommended I update some kitchen appliances prior to selling. I didn't want to... it was too expensive and a pain. Kathy showed me comparative examples where previous sellers had updated vs. examples where sellers had not updated. She made it crystal clear the cost/benefit of updating, without coming across as pushy. Ultimately, her advice was right and the updated kitchen played a direct role in the ease of selling my townhouse and in the final price we were able to receive. This is just one example of Kathy holding my hand through the process. There are many, many more. Like the time I didn't want to pay a landscaper to make my yard pretty so Kathy showed up the next day with rakes and mulch and made me do it.
I can't imagine an agent doing a better job than Kathy. I really can't.
I have recommended and will continue to recommend Kathy to any and every one of my friends/coworkers who moves to the DC area. ”

“We were extremely happy with our broker. Ms. Kathy Dipp was one of the best broker's we've had. Our sales experience was excellent. Kathy is extremely knowledgeable and ground truth/common sense oriented about home market sales.
Kathy's attention to detail was of tremendous value during our home inspection and other meetings with the builder. Her background of the area and of the various nuances/dynamics associated with purchasing a new construction home was outstanding. We were also extremely impressed with her willingness to make be available for every vis-a-vis meeting we had with the developer.
If there was a separate category above excellent, that's where she would be rated. Kathy is the total package for a realtor/broker and is well rounded in many facets of home buying - to include macro-mico economic considerations, appreciation, resale, renting, and best value home configurations. We were truly blessed when USAA assigned Kathy to us. This is our 5th home purchase and by far, this has been the best experience due to Kathy's untiring efforts and professional dedication to addressing our many/unlimited needs.
