The level of service that I received from Katie Stowe was absolutely outstanding, and everyone I encountered at McEnearney Associates, Inc. was wonderful. I honestly have very little if anything negative to say about the transaction experience; it was seamless from beginning to end. Katie Stowe is the best!
Exceptional Service! Phenomenal Experience with Overseas Families Moving Home. All Transactions leading to final closing conducted 11 time zones away. We are an active duty military family and we recently PCS'd from service at the U.S. Embassy in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan to the Northern Capital Region. Because most of my service is overseas, I have not previously purchased a home. Like all of us in uniform, we have to plan for the day that our career comes to an end, so on this move, we decided to purchase a home. Because we initiated the process from overseas, on the other side of the world, I was very nervous about the process and asked other officers for advice and through the Foreign Area Officer community, Katie was highly recommended. We contacted Katie and other Real Estate Agents in the area and Katie by far made the best first impression. As we continued to work with her under contract, that first great impression was only intensified. She did an amazing job. We are now first-time homeowners and the experience of purchasing a home was excellent, despite my initial concerns. Here are the highlights:
• Professional, friendly and well thought-out advice.
• Fast response on all questions.
• Willingness to work with us in hours that were mutually acceptable with an 11 hour time difference.
• Great use of tech to run us through Webcam home viewings of all houses we were interested in.
• Sage advice as the process continued, to included a willingness to give us 'hard news we didn't want to hear' on one property that we narrowly avoided purchasing (fire damage).
• Despite the pressure to buy quickly, Katie gave us the advice we needed to make the best negotiations in our interest.
• Help with local contractors.
• When asked, she provided several options for highly rated local mortgage lenders, without pushing us toward any.
Katie Stowe of McEnearney Associates is an excellent realtor. We just sold our townhouse with her, and it was an amazing experience. We were posted overseas, and the townhouse needed some renovation work. She provided a responsible and efficient contractor, oversaw all the renovations, including input on design, and expertly shepherded us through a changing DC area market, including some tricky negotiations. I can’t say enough about how knowledgeable, responsive, and helpful she was. Plus, she’s just a genuinely lovely person who made the whole process go smoothly. We highly recommend Katie to both buyers and sellers; you will not be disappointed in her top-notch service.

Katie, while meeting her work schedule and family’s demands, still found time to come to my home to share coffee and explain the steps in getting a home ready for sale. Any question I had was quickly answered from her own knowledge or through her research.
Katie proved to be a valued asset in meeting the many steps necessary to get a house to market. One of her first steps was putting me in contact with a trusted contractor, who gave my house the needed look for a welcoming curb appeal. Next step was the downsizing, followed by the house inspection, repairs, the house staging, open house and taking contracts for purchase. These steps and more got me a fair price for my house. During this process I had to have a knee replacement and therapy. And while I had moved out of the house during the last six weeks before closing, Katie handled the scheduling and appointments for the workers, preparing the house for sale.

We were fortunate to meet Katie Stowe when work required a major move for our family into the Washington, D.C. area. Finding a new home was our first priority. And finding an honest, hard-working realtor was a task in itself. But honest and hard-working describes Katie perfectly. Katie made sure she understood exactly what we needed and wanted in a home. She stayed in close contact by e-mail and phone on a daily basis. She did her research and we were not disappointed. When she found us the home we knew would be perfect for us Katie made sure our offer was stronger than three other offers made on that home the same day. And after the offer was accepted, she made sure every detail stayed on track through closing.
We could not have asked for a more caring, professional realtor than Katie Stowe. If we find ourselves needing a realtor in the future, she will be the person we call.

Katie represented us when we bought a home in March of 2018 and facilitated a seamless home buying experience for us. She was very thorough in explaining the whole process as well as at each stage-specific documents we had to sign. During the house search, she demonstrated excellent knowledge of cpimtrCountry Creek and the broader Vienna area and accommodated special requests from us, including checking the willingness to sell of owners of certain houses we liked particularly well.
We also felt Katie placed our interest through out the processs. She meticulously vetted all documents before asking for our signatures. Her attention to detail saved us money when during the final walk-through she identified something that required fixing from the seller.
All in all very professional and responsive and I highly recommend Katie to anyone looking to buy/sell.rent.

Katie helped us find a house in Arlington VA in November 2017. After cycling through multiple agents who promised responsiveness and in-depth familiarity with local neighborhoods, I'm thrilled to say that Katie was the only one who actually delivered.
She is thorough, very responsive and really made us feel like she was working on our behalf. We would recommend Katie to anyone looking to buy, sell or rent in Northern Virginia, and we look forward to working with her in the future

I had quite a few stipulations for Katie when I first started looking for a place in Virginia. She found many places that fit all of my needs and still kept looking after I said that I wanted something different. We ended up finding a place that is perfect for me and at a great price none the less. To top it all off I was in a different country when I contacted her and my date to get back home must have changed at least 5 or 6 times. She never complained once and just kept looking until she found the perfect place for me. I could not be happier with where I am living now and I owe that to Katie. She is a great real estate agent and I would recommend her to anyone who is looking

Katie Stowe greatly exceeded my expectations in helping me find a condo to rent. She was able to find numerous rentals that met my criteria (even though I may have been vague about what I was looking for). Katie was friendly and professional and worked around my schedule. I will definitely recommend her to others. A+++
