WHAT KEVIN'S RECENT CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY:
"Kevin is an expert in real estate sales. He is always affable, responds to phone calls within minutes, has workers for every challenge, and is very efficient and very effective. We give him the highest recommendation. Joe and Agatha Oertel (Dec 2017)
"We worked with Belt Team again for our second home. We are really happy with Kevin and the whole team. Selling and buying home is a very stressful process. Kevin and the whole team made the process much easier. They are very responsive and supportive and worked with us on every step in the whole process. I highly recommend the Belt Team. You can't go wrong with them." Jianlong Zhang (Dec 2017)
"Christy and Kevin are the BEST! This is our 2nd house that we have bought with the Belt Team, and it's the first time we sold. Kevin came over to our old house in early July to take a walk through and let us know what to update to make our house sell. He then went to work on finding us a great home in our price range and in the neighborhood we wanted. Kevin's speed, pace, and compassion got our house sold and put us in our forever home. We love Kevin, and would recommend him to friends and family any time. He always puts your interests and wishes FIRST and will not stop until you are in your dream home. He's the BEST!"? Ben & Lara Kaplan (Sept 2017)
"Kevin Kleifges and Patty Schuebel and the Belt Team were top notch! From start to finish, we couldn't be more pleased with both the sale of our home and purchase of our new home in Falls Church, VA!! Initially my husband and I had interviewed three other realtors and had intended to go with one of them. However, after meeting Kevin at an open house in Vienna, he was proactive and followed up immediately. He presented a sound game plan and was knowledgeable and pragmatic, not to mention patient! He was helpful with suggestions to sell our home and was logical in terms of helping us manage expectations for the home we eventually purchased. He was always available to answer questions or talk through details when needed. Kevin is an excellent advocate for his clients and looks out for their best interests. Patty ensured that all the critical details were handled seamlessly throughout the process and the two were a great team. We wholeheartedly recommend them both!" Trish & Jay Visconti (July 2017)
"We had a fabulous experience with Kevin Kleifges of the Belt Team. After spending a year or so visiting neighborhoods across the DC Metro area to figure out where we wanted to live, we finally found Vienna and knew it was where we wanted to raise our family. I interviewed a few agents with the goal of finding someone who knew Vienna inside and out and it was a clear choice to work with Kevin. He was knowledgeable, not pushy, respectful of our budget, and easy going. With Kevin's help we were under contract on the second house we saw - a house he thought we would like that hadn't stood out in the listings. Having an agent based in Vienna made all the difference and and we are so happy we partnered with the Belt Team. Patty Schuebel, the client care manager, is also wonderful to work with and guided us throughout the closing process. Thank you Kevin and the Belt Team!" Bill & Alissa Brenner (May 2017)
"We worked with Kevin Kleifges and had such an amazing home buying experience. We met Kevin at an open house and he was interested and engaged with us, but not pushy at all, and we felt really comfortable with him. Our budget meant we would be able to find something that met our needs but we'd need to prioritize our wants, and Kevin spent a whole day initially going out to see properties with us just to get a feel for what we would like. He always asked questions to review and prioritize what we saw, and helped us figure out exactly what we wanted. Then Kevin contacted us about a property he had found out about that hadn't gone on the market yet. At first when he took us to see it, my husband liked it but I wasn't sure. But I couldn't stop thinking about the property, and kept going to drive by it. There was something about it that felt so right. Kevin seemed to have such a good feel for what we'd like, even before we knew we liked it! He knows Vienna so well, and really understood the feel I wanted in a neighborhood. And he respected our budget and never tried to push us above it. In fact, the house he found us was well below our budget, allowing us to put work into it to really make it our own. I so appreciate that, since often times people who are paid a sales percentage might be more inclined to stretch our budget to make more. Overall, Kevin was so great to work with. He found us our perfect little home, and we feel so lucky that we never had to deal with the craziness of the Vienna bidding wars since he found it before it went on the market. We would highly recommend him to anyone beginning their home search!" Hilary & Brenton Flynn (April 2017)
"Kevin Kleifges is a realtor rock star - we love his down-to-earth style, and we are confident in his abilities. You won’t regret contacting him. We decided to casually browse open homes in Vienna, and Kevin was the very first realtor and listing we saw at 1PM on a Sunday. He was easy-going and approachable – with heavy “cool dad” vibes. Further, he had substantive comments for us as first-time home buyers, and he had also prepared a very thorough packet about the home he was listing – in addition to the usual photos and MRIS sheet, it had a maintenance/renovation history as well as other sheets. We thanked him for our time and visited over ten homes and realtors, and we concluded that Kevin made us feel the most comfortable. With that in mind, we opted to work with him, which was easy peasy no retainer needed. Kevin is thorough and methodical. Regardless of the home we looked at, he would first inspect the systems, ball park their age, and listen to our feedback. We had a very specific set of requirements, but he respected our opinions and did not bombard us with listing after listing. Even when we were ready to pounce, he reigned us in by first informing us of comps before we moved. Kevin helped us gain the upper edge in the hot real estate market through information gathering – he established early rapport with the listing agent of the home we ultimately purchased to gauge the competitive landscape, helping us time and price our offer accordingly. Now that the house is closed an done, Kevin and I still chat every now and then, in fact we’re (somewhat distant) neighbors! From what I gather, Kevin’s Belt Team mostly lives in Vienna, sometimes selling homes just blocks away from theirs – this intimate connection with the neighborhood gives them the edge if you are targeting the Oakton-Vienna-McLean corridor" (April 2017)
"Kevin and the rest of the Belt Team did a great job helping me through a recent downsizing. Kevin's recommendations on improvements and pricing were spot-on and the contractors were reasonably priced and did good, expedient work. Highly recommended! " Mike Wingo (Nov 2016)
"Kevin Kleifges of the Belt Team represented me and my wife in the sale of our Falls Church, VA home. Kevin embodied the qualities that I believe are extremely important for a realtor to have. He was professional, understanding, logical and displayed outstanding negotiating skills throughout the process. Our house needed updating and Kevin's expertise led to a prudent plan involving minimal staging and interior renovations. He followed up promptly after all realtor showings and communicated through emails, texts and phone calls quickly to update us, always making sure to understand the feedback from potential buyers. He didn't do this to go through the motions, though. Kevin used the feedback to make recommendations for changes to the home, or reducing the listing price. He clearly shined during the negotiating process, working with the ultimate buyer's agent to come to a very acceptable agreement on home repairs. I'm convinced that Kevin's ability to deal with other agents and positively sell the attributes of our home led ultimately to a very strong offer which we accepted. Most of all Kevin made us feel comfortable with his confidence and warmth and once we had a solid offer he worked tirelessly to nail down the terms and close the transaction quickly. I enthusiastically recommend Kevin for his work ethic, consummate selling skills and ability to strongly advocate for his clients. In the end, it was Kevin's unwavering confidence in his ability to get our home sold and comforting words that bolstered us as we went through the stresses and discomfort that goes along with selling a home." Rich & Jenn Bacherman (Sept 2016)
"We were very fortunate to have Kevin Kleifges and The Belt Team help us sell our home in Vienna, VA. From the very beginning we were given a timeline to prepare the house for the market and clear ideas of what to expect. Kevin and his team were always willing to talk with us about any questions and concerns we had about the process. We utilized a staging team recommended by Kevin and they were great. They brought in some pieces to help accent the home but I was amazed at just how much
