This is the Kate I told you about. She took such good care of us, even when we were a major pain in her rump . . . She took excellent care of us and treated us like family. Hence, we would trust her with our closest friends, like you.


Kate was a true partner in the complicated process of buying a house, especially in this market. She knows the neighborhoods in amazing detail and was honest with us every step of the way. She was exceedingly patient and flexible…it became clear early on that she was not interested in getting us into the first house we saw. She wanted us to find the right house for US. And we did. And our daughter still asks to see her! -Tina van Itallie

Working with Kate Slawta was a total delight. She is very professional, but also so warm and friendly that it was fun looking at houses with her. She tolerated our occasional panic attacks with humor and never put any pressure on us, but she did make sure we had all the information we needed. In the end, she guided us through the whole buying process with grace. I love the house we found with her, but I miss our house hunting jaunts together! -Valerie Natal

Kate was dynamic but patient. She worked to understand our needs and wishes. She didn’t push us to buy hastily. We really appreciated her professionalism and attention. -Judy P. – 2014

Although I have lived in the Washington, DC area for more than 30 years, we were looking for a home in a neighborhood that was completely unfamiliar to us. Kate did a fantastic job researching the neighborhood and helping us find the perfect fit. -Charles D. – 2014

Kate very patiently helped us find a house. Being new to the USA we of course had many strange and varied questions on the process. Kate helped us to understand the market and actively listened to our requirements. She was always readily available and extremely proactive plus willing to go the extra mile. -Pamela Wexler, 2015

I wish I could buy more real estate, just so I could work with Kate. Incredibly professional, super knowledgeable, always open minded, a sincere advocate…she’s everything anyone would want in a realtor. -Heidi Hughes Bumpers
