In October 2012 I was offered a transfer to Northern Virginia with the company I work for, after accepting the position I contacted a college friend who lived in the DC area and asked him for any realtor contacts in the area that he was aware of or experience with. My friend didn't hesitate for a second, he immediately replied you need to call Katrina Schymik at McEnearney Associates. He went on to tell me that she had help him and his wife purchase their home in DC and that she was everything you could ask for in a realtor! So, I took his advice I figured why not give her a call... This turned out to be the best decision I could have made, from the initial phone call until final closing she stayed in close contact with me asking strong questions to ensure the house I bought was exactly what I was looking for. On a tight timeline with a job transfer Katrina made herself available for quick last minute visits to accommodate my hectic travel schedule. After house visits, Katrina would take all of my follow-up questions and would have replies waiting for me the next day. Along with this, when I sent questions about properties Katrina would reply quickly stating either the answer to my question or when she expected to be able to answer (if she needed to contact the sellers agent). This type of customer service is something that I valued very highly in Katrina. Lastly, and most importantly Katrina is an absolute pleasure to be around, she loves what she does and it makes the home buying process an enjoyable one. If you are moving to the area, don't look any further pick up the phone and call Katrina! -Dave McCullough March 14, 2013
The service and personal attention we received from Katrina Schymik was exceptional and somewhat unexpected in the volatile DC metro market. She truly is of the highest calibre, with exceptional knowledge and experience in the DC metro area to include key contacts in the community that helped us in our search for our new home and enabled the expeditious sale of our DC flat. After patiently going through all local market listings and explaining financial details with us, she made sure we got the best offer possible for our previous home and more importantly, the best value purchase for the new one. She brought both deals to a close while remaining intuitively cognizant of our families needs to include our beloved dog! Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, We highly recommend Katrina to help you in this life changing move. We could not have asked for a better Realtor to guide us through the process and we also have gained a true friend and confidant. -Geoff Shank & Kim Vigue December 7, 2012
Katrina has been a wonderful resource, friend, and advocate during our first experience as home buyers. At our initial meeting, Katrina provided us with all the information that we needed to purchase a home, and then, she patiently repeated that information as many times as we needed throughout the process. She also recommended various lenders (the one we chose turned out to be awesome) and was prepared with recommendations for contractors and title companies. Each time we met with Katrina, I was impressed with her punctuality, organization, and attention to detail. Katrina was also incredibly responsive. Both of us are professionals and at times we could only work on our home search after business hours. Katrina never batted an eye and almost always responded to our texts and emails within one or two hours, even late at night or on the weekend. Despite the incredible damage and power outages that the area suffered after intense storms, Katrina went out of her way to contact us and give us updates on her communication status and our house search. At first, we were unclear on what we needed in a home. Katrina helped us narrow our options during each outing until we knew that we had found the perfect house for us. She was a fantastic third eye when we viewed potential homes and was quick to point out any potential problems or important considerations. She often spotted issues that neither of us noticed and then drew upon her wealth of experience to provide us with a clear picture of what we could expect if we chose a particular house. From making our first offer through (and after) closing, Katrina reassured us and provided us with timely notes and reminders for each step we needed to complete. In short, Katrina made would could have been a very stressful experience painless and easy. We enjoyed her company and are incredibly happy with our new home. We would not hesitate to recommend Katrina to anyone, especially first time buyers. -Sarah Parker and Dan Williams September 14, 2012
My husband and I were in the market to purchase a condo in Washington, DC, when my husband accepted a job there. Being from New Jersey, I reached out to my local realtor who recommended Katrina Schymik. From our very first phone conversation, I knew Katrina was a great recommendation. She really listened to our needs, and was immediately able to send me listings via email to review. She was always very professional and efficient, as well as friendly. As we went through the process, our needs changed, and she was very patient with supplying me with new listings to meet my requirements. When the time came to take a trip to DC to see the properties, she had all the print outs organized and we saw 14 properties in two days! We found one that we decided to buy, and she helped us through the whole closing process, even supplying a accordion file for all of our documents. Her helpfulness did not end at closing. We did extensive remodeling, and Katrina was able to recommend wonderful contractors. She made the process of buying a home from out of state easy with her great communication and organizational skills and her extensive knowledge of the real estate industry. I would highly recommend her as a realtor! -Laurie & Chris Winans September 4, 2012
When my company moved me to Washington, I reached out to Katrina Schymik at the suggestion of a friend. I’ve moved many times, but she is absolutely the most competent, organized and service-oriented agent that I have had the pleasure to work with. Every aspect, from helping me find a home to navigating the negotiation and preparing for the settlement and move-in were expertly done. I was kept very informed and well-coached. She also served as a strong advocate for me, resolving some issues from the inspection and in preparation for the settlement that were difficult for me to do remotely. The tone was set from the very beginning when I first contacted her. She researched and understood my needs, and made sure I saw a wide variety of homes that met my criteria. I found my home on the first day, successfully negotiated in under week and settled and moved in soon thereafter. -Paul Pomerantz August 31, 2012
