The Real Estate Market is competitive BUT it doesn't have to be overwhelming! 

Let me guide you through the process & get you the best results possible. As a native to Virginia (Falls Church) I know this market better than anyone. I've seen it evolve over the past 40 years. The trick is to get the intel on what's coming soon before the world can see it on those general websites. When you work with me you have access to all the  Coming Soon + Pre-Market homes before anyone else. Named Arlington Magazines Top Producer in 2023!

“Kelly was the best. She got us on the market in record time and practically sold it on the first weekend!”

Not only did she work tirelessly to show us houses that were in our budget, but she totally got the "vibe" of what we were looking for. We sold our first home and bought our second with Kelly, and I'll recommend her to every person who ever asks for an agent.

“Holistic Real Estate Services.  from beginning to end. Let me help make the process enjoyable.”

- Kelly MIllspaugh Thompson. REALTOR + Founder of Stylish patina Real Estate

Kelly was so patient and kind with my husband and I during this entire process.  The market was VERY competitive but kelly was always relaxed and reassured us things would work out.  She guided us through the ins and outs and we found our dream home. We can't recommend Kelly more to our friends and first time home buyers.

Client testimonials

first time home buyers during pandemic

“Kelly was great to work with...  we could not be happier that we chose her to represent us.”

She was very responsive, which is a must with how quickly homes go in the area, and it felt like we were able to utilize her knowledge of the local market and neighborhoods to find a home that we will be happy in for a very long time. We would definitely recommend Kelly to anyone we know looking to buy a home.

home of 25 years

“I can't imagine having a better experience with a realtor than we did with Kelly”

Her marketing strategy and advice on preparing the house for sale were spot on, as evidenced by multiple offers way over asking price. She brought a great deal of energy and real estate know-how to the table, yet her approach was relaxed and pressure-free and we felt at ease with every step of the process.
