Kierstan Woods is a residential Realtor® located in Alexandria, Virginia. She offers dedicated service, solid knowledge of the local real estate market, and personal attention when it comes to buying, selling or renting. Her goal is to make the entire process a smooth and enjoyable experience – from the initial consultation, right up until her clients are all settled into their new home!
Clients working with Kierstan to locate and purchase a home will find her to be first and foremost an excellent listener who loves asking questions to uncover the most important features and benefits they are seeking in a new home and surrounding community. Those partnering with her on the sale of their home appreciate her thorough recommendations for preparing and staging the property, ensuring a strong, positive impact on buyers the day the property hits the market. Utilizing targeted online and offline marketing strategies for maximum exposure to the right prospective buyers is another critical component employed by Kierstan in order to sell her clients’ homes quickly, and for the highest possible price.
Kierstan is a strong advocate for her clients throughout the entire transaction, and particularly during the negotiation process – a skill highly valued by both buyer and seller clients. By educating her clients along the way and discussing what to prepare for throughout the various stages of the transaction, she empowers them to make decisions that are the best for their particular situation. Additionally, her “hands on” approach means her clients can expect to work personally with her each step of the way, all the way through until settlement.
Prior to becoming a Realtor®, Kierstan spent 16 years working in sales, marketing, and marketing research for such Fortune 500 companies as Bristol-Myers Squibb, Procter & Gamble, and most recently ConAgra Foods. Clients included mass merchandisers Wal*Mart and Target, among others, which provided a wonderful opportunity to hone her ability to not just meet, but exceed, high client expectations.
Graduating with honors from Ohio Wesleyan University where she played basketball, Kierstan also holds an MBA in marketing from Thunderbird School of Global Management.
Kierstan lives in Alexandria with her husband Chris, two young children, and eleven year old Labrador/Beagle mix, Katie. She serves on the board of her local homeowner’s association, and actively supports a number of local charities within the community. In addition to real estate and her family, Kierstan loves a good (strong) cup of coffee, spicy thai food, and Ghirardelli dark chocolate.
