What Our Clients Have to Say

Kay Houghton & Associates streamlined the process and made it incredibly easy navigating the confusing wold of real estate during my home sale. Her high-level knowledge of the current/trending market, especially as it related to the Fairlington area, directly attributed to a great selling price and a short market duration. I honestly couldn’t be happier with her hard work…Choosing Kay was the best decision I could have made…Kay had done such a excellent job in marketing the house that it had an outstanding offer within one day before the open house. Needless to say, the entire experience and the final sale exceeded my expectations.

For Sellers: Push vs. Pull Marketing

A Modern Idea for Advertising Listings

Your home is your most precious asset.  You deserve better than having someone stick a sign in the yard and hope that buyers find you on their own.  This is known as “pull marketing” and while it’s a fair start, it’s not enough.  We supplement this with a “push marketing” strategy that actively works to connect you with homebuyers.  Push marketing does more by getting your listing in front of buyers that would otherwise miss your listing, or that might not even know they were looking for a home.  Click below to learn more about our marketing strategies and how they can work for you.

For Homebuyers: Leveraging the Latest in Technology

Don’t Miss Out on the Right Home for You

If you’re looking for a home, you’re probably using one of the big search syndicators like Zillow or Trulia.  But did you know that those sites can cause you to miss out on as much as 27% of listings?  Or that some of the homes they showcase aren’t even really for sale?  This inaccurate data can cause you to get your hopes up for a home that isn’t available, or even worse, miss out on the right home for you.  That’s why we’ve partnered with RealScout, which leverages the latest technology to bring you an incredibly accurate snapshot of homes on the market right now.  RealScout also gives you access to features like feature search and their room-by-room photo comparison of listings.  Our past clients love RealScout and we think you will too!
