Your Local Real Estate Expert
Thank you for visiting my website. Since 2001 I have assisted hundreds of buyers and sellers in the Northern Virginia market with their personal real estate needs. My experience and dedication to servicing all clients at every level allows me to be a full service, full time realtor, with knowledge, understanding and compassion. Whether I am selling a one bedroom condo or a luxury estate, my customer service and attention to detail remain the same. Trustee sales, estate sales, residential sales, and new construction all fall under my various fields of expertise. As a buyer’s agent I will educate you on the market, teach you how to write a winning contract, and negotiate terms that are acceptable to you - and I am with you long after our closing is complete to offer you home maintenance advice or suggestions with future improvements. As a listing agent for my sellers I start with a thorough walk through of your home and will advise and counsel on what to do and not do to best maximize your value. We will review recent sales to best price your property and again I will educate you up front on what to expect throughout the entire selling process. In my business model there are NEVER any surprises.
With over 40 years of sales, marketing, and customer service experience, I bring credible skills to every transaction. My enthusiasm for the business, coupled with my energy level and commitment to a job well done, are a few of the hallmarks to my success. I am a mother to 3 adult children and my family has been residents of Alexandria since 1981, so I can also provide you with a thorough area wide working knowledge with the most up to date information and resources.
I am proud to be considered a Lifetime Top Producer here at Long and Foster, and a member of the Top 1% of Realtors Nationwide (Alliance 2002-Present), as well as the recipient of Washingtonian Magazine’s Top Metro Realtors for the past 5 years running. A passion for the business combined with honesty, integrity and strong communication skills, brings results for my buyers and my sellers. Trust me to take care of all of your real estate needs.
From a satisfied client:
Kim Muffler has changed our family’s life. As a family of four and a dog, we interact with a lot of important professionals from mechanics and home improvement contractors to pediatricians and veterinarians and through all of these important professionals none have impacted our life as a family as profoundly and positively as our all-star realtor Kim Muffler.
On three occasions now in different stages of our family’s growth, she has worked with us to understand our needs and deliver a perfect fit that was above our expectations each time. She is able to delicately court our deepest desires while at the same time compassionately and patiently helping us to understand the realities of the market. When my wife and I were just a young couple Kim found us a beautiful condominium as our first home together. When we were ready to start a family, Kim helped us get into a perfect duplex that we thought was out of our reach but with Kim’s guidance and tacit knowledge of how to work a deal, we were able to swing it.
And then there was our most recent home purchase. We had already sold our house (Which sold in a single weekend for way over asking price thanks to Kim) and had not found a perfect fit yet on the buying side. Kim of course arranged a rent-back for us so we could stay in our home while we searched. She also arranged temporary housing for us in case we didn’t find our new dream home in time. As time was nearly running out on our rent-back agreement we found a home that was truly inspiring. A beautiful, well kept home with an address we never thought we could live at in our wildest dreams. It is located walking distance from the elementary school my two children will attend. The house had a special energy to it that I couldn’t possibly explain. My wife and I felt it when we first toured the home together and we knew this was it. We also knew that competition would be brutal. An anxious energy crept in as I thought about losing this home. Kim was there with us and she felt the energy in the room and knew just what to do. As always, she comforted us with her positive attitude. Kim knows homes and when she says a home is a good buy, you can be 100% positive that it is. With her confidence and charm, Kim seemed to say "If this is the home you want…this is the home we’ll get." She started making phone calls immediately. I always felt like Kim was as invested in the process as we were. Its pretty impressive that she can treat each client with such care and individual attention considering how many years of experience she has.
The story of our most recent home purchase of course ends with an incredible deal and very satisfied buyers and sellers…which is how I imagine all of Kim’s transactions end. Kim is a accomplished professional. She knows the inside of real estate better than anyone. She understands real estate in her bones and talks about the market with an easy confidence that makes you feel comfortable and safe. She is confident, tactful, and appropriately aggressive when dealing with other people on your behalf. She is your champion. She makes you feel like you are on the A team and that you go into any transaction with a strong upper hand. Kim makes you feel like you are a VIP. She is the kind of specialized expert you’d think would only be available to the ultra-rich and that she’d have a TV show made about her. She brings that kind of fire power to a humble family of four. But she provided the tailored kind of experience that made us feel like stars. Buying and selling homes with Kim is actually fun.
Kim Muffler is a standout personality. She lights up a room with her energy and is unforgettable. It’s hard to find her brand of competence, professionalism and charisma. When she’s on your side you understand just how powerful an exceptional person like this can be. Real estate is lucky to have her…we are even luckier. Kristie & Clint Herring
We recently celebrated the first year anniversary of the purchase of our home, and it gave us an opportunity to reflect on the ease of the entire process of obtaining it. We were not looking for another house but found a place with the yard we had been dreaming of. Our mortgage lender suggested a real estate agent that she had worked with in the past and as we valued the opinion of this person who had helped us purchase our town home we chose to give this agent a try. Immediately Kim Muffler became invested in our family and helping us determine the best approach for not just the purchase of our dream home but also the sale of our town home. We believe in working a problem when things come up and Kim is exactly the same - in fact, she is a bit of a bulldog. She was there for our home inspection, up on a ladder, engaging with both my husband and the inspector for the entire day. She was also on top of the seller to satisfy any and all inspection items that required attention. Kim held us to the same high standard upon the sale of our town home, which we would have no other way. Her dedication and integrity stood out; she was always available and always thinking through each step of the process and what was fair and right. We worked in close communication with Kim, and continue to stay in touch - in fact, we consider her a friend. Because she lives in the area she has the expertise of the local real estate market, and her years of experience in the industry make her a powerhouse - as her sales numbers show. At no point did we feel like a commission or anything other than a partner in both the sale and purchase of our homes. Although that may sound like a complicated scenario on paper, Kim had a direct impact on the smoothness of which everything took place. Bonnie & Shawn McMahon
