We could not have asked for a better agent. We had an incredibly stressful house hunting process but Rina had a solution for every problem. My wife and I were able to close on a home despite numerous obstacles and hurdles, and that is only because of Rina. Buying a home is a very emotional process and Rina went above and beyond to keep us sane. She really has your best interest in mind. There were many times she gave us advice that went against her own interest (guidance that would result in a smaller commission for her). My wife and I made the right call going with Rina. If we ever sell and/or buy again we will be using her.

Rina is a real expert on home sales in DC and was a pleasure to work with. She was extremely responsive and helpful. I would recommend her highly. She walked us through the process of renovating the property through the Compass Concierge option and that was a huge help, relieving us of managing multiple contractors, etc.

Rina sold our house in America University Park. She was organized, efficient, careful with details and a pleasure to work with. Her team responded quickly to texts and emails, and her suggestions helped us prepare the house to sell quickly.

Rina is a long time resident of AU Park who knows the market very well and so can provide clear advice on home preparation, pricing, etc. She and Steve work together to provide all the support needed to sellers in the most accommodating way, making this an easy process. Rina is a great agent to work with and I recommend her highly.

Rina is who you want as your real estate agent. We had the pleasure of her representing us as a buyer for our home. She is very professional and knowledgeable about the local market. Our desired area and school district is highly desired and aggressive in Washington, DC. Rina provided a consultation and took the opportunity to understand our wants and needs. A home came on the market about 2 days later and we asked her to show. We were the first ones in and decided to make an offer after discussions with Rina about offer price... she did not let us overpay and provided a reasonable offer amount well under what we anticipated. OFFER WAS ACCEPTED! Rina was in touch with us following up every step of the way via phone, text, email and physically (physical was limited due to COVID19). She got the deal done with personal attention and her office staff was very easy to communicate and work with. We would recommend Rina and her staff to everyone in need of a real estate agent.

We thoroughly enjoyed working with Rina on our recent home purchase. As first time homebuyers who are not from the DMV area, we were looking for a realtor who could walk us through the home buying process and help us sort through our priorities. Rina was with us every step of the way as our search began for a two-bedroom condo in DC and ended with a single family home in Maryland. Rina is knowledgeable, communicative, and thoughtful. We'd recommend her to any home buyer in the DMV area!

Rina helped me through the process of purchasing my first home and it was a very positive experience. She is a great resource for learning about the local market and the home buying process. She is also responsive and a clear communicator. Having her on my side allowed me to be more confident and comfortable with my first home purchase and I would definitely recommend her services.
March, 2020 - American University Park, DC
We decided to prepare and list our longtime home in a short time-frame, and Rina was an outstanding partner in that project. She offered a creative strategy for getting the house and yard ready, identifying great contractors and helping coordinate the work. She gave us sound, evidence- and experience-based guidance on timing, pricing, staging, marketing, and assessing the numerous above-list offers. Rina was always responsive to us, and maintained scrupulous ethical standards. She and her team were also unfailingly warm and enthusiastic! The result was an efficient, effective, and problem-free house sale that went as well as we possibly could have hoped. We’re delighted to recommend Rina Kunk and her outstanding team to other prospective home-sellers.

I just wanted to thank you for working with Betsy and I during the sale of our family home. Your professionalism in explaining everything to us and then guiding us through the process of the sale was outstanding. I compliment you on your attention to detail and always keeping us informed of how the process of the sale was progressing.
Steve took some beautiful photos of our home to showcase it to prospective buyers. His knowledge of the architecture of our home and the homes in the area is impressive. I could hardly believe when he told me he had checked on what homes on our block had replaced their old lead pipe water lines. Now that's attention to detail!
If you would, pass along our thanks to Holly, who was great at helping us make a decision, and also Maggie who followed up with us to make sure the transaction was going as smooth as possible.
Again, thanks to you and your team at Compass Realty for making our experience outstanding.
Stay Safe and Healthy,

We want to thank you again for the many wonderful things you did on our behalf to get 37th Street ready, and then sold. We decided immediately upon meeting you that we were a good fit, and we committed then and there to follow your suggestions and advice. Like probably many of your clients, we were nervous and uncertain from time to time, but fortunately we stayed the course and the results were terrific. The house could not have looked better than it did when it was listed and the online photos, brochures etc. made it look even better. The selling price met our expectations and we are very pleased. We want you to know how much we have enjoyed working with you and how impressed we have been by the work you did for us.

Rina came highly recommended to us. She handled the sales of two of my family’s homes over a period of several months…one in AU Park and the other in Cleveland Park. Her experience and in-depth knowledge of these areas enabled us to get the most out of these two properties. Most importantly, she was great to work with. She was extremely helpful throughout all stages of the process and has many resources to assist with whatever is needed. She helped us to determine what improvements would be most beneficial for one of the houses to maximize our sale price while working within our budget. Rina and her husband Steve went above and beyond by working late to add some finishing touches that really added to the final presentation. We couldn’t be more pleased with having chosen Rina as our agent and would highly recommend her.
Rina was instrumental in helping us find our first home. The process is obviously daunting in a very competitive market like Northwest DC, but Rina’s advice on both conducting the search and making an offer helped us figure out what we really wanted and how to go about getting it. Furthermore, Rina was a great listener and was extremely patient as we worked our way through the process. Also, she was always open to our ideas for seeing houses and always worked to find times that worked with our schedules. We cannot recommend Rina highly enough! We love our new home!
Rina handled our home purchase with utmost professionalism. What I like best about her are her listening skills, attention to detail, and negotiation skills. Rina listens to what the client wants and doesn't impose her own ideas but will give counsel on the wisest course of action when asked. Rina never dropped the ball on a single little detail, marking it all down in the moment and following up when needed. Post-closing we had an issue where our seller left some construction materials behind and neglected to leave us keys to the property. She negotiated firmly on both issues and achieved solutions that were acceptable to us. She also has a great network of contractors, lenders and other service people. All her recommendations were fantastic. Best of all probably is her Zen-like calm when dealing with home buyers anxious about getting everything right. We always felt like we were in good hands.
Rina is a joy to work with. Her no pressure approach, keen listening skills and sensitivity to headaches and heartaches that can accompany moving made my experience painless and mostly effortless. She provided excellent quality storage boxes and wrapping papers for de-cluttering my home in addition to helping me shift them to a temporary storage facility which thank goodness, I was able to find. She is resourceful when suggesting solutions and has established relationships with the best local tradespeople that she is generous with sharing. She was available at all times without interfering or pushing me where I didn't want to go. The move went so well I barely remember it! Thanks Rina. Happy New Year to you and Steve. Warm regards, Jo Bradley, 46th Street NW. PS - I GOT MY ASKING PRICE IN 5 DAYS!
We cannot say enough good things about Rina, both professionally and personally. We just successfully completed a fairly complex set of real estate transactions which included the purchase of a condominium and the sale of our house. Rina gave us sound professional advise each step of the way and provided personal support which was greatly appreciated. She showed great sensitivity in helping us navigate some of the difficult issues related to these transactions. We would recommend her without reservation to anyone who is thinking of selling or buying a home.
Rina was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to end. I felt like I was in the best hands with her and received sound advice through and through. She is patient and a great listener - I always felt that she had our best interest at heart and she consistently checked in with us about what we were looking for. Importantly for my husband, she never pushed us, but was realistic with us about offers that were unlikely to be accepted (& she was always on the ball). She was great about reaching out to sellers' agents to understand what the seller was looking for so we could craft an offer accordingly. She had a strong understanding of the market in the areas we were looking (mostly Palisades, Glover Park, Chevy Chase) and was able to guide us accordingly. I've already recommended her and will continue to do so. She makes the home purchasing process as painless as it can be. We are first-time homebuyers and having Rina put us at ease.
Rina helped me and my wife sell my deceased mother-in-law's house. We had never sold a property before and Rina patiently explained everything about the process and made us feel comfortable. She was understanding and gracious with us as we broke relations for a few months while we worked directly with a developer who had independently approached us. When that fell through, Rina quickly re-energized tailoring a sales strategy with us and in short order was able to find us a buyer at a price that was agreeable. She was very communicative and helpful throughout the process all the way through the closing. It was a pleasure working with Rina.
Rina is just lovely! She helped us sell our condo and buy our first house back in 2012. It was such a reassurance and a pleasure to work with her during both of these experiences. She works all over the DC area and has deep local expertise - she grew up in NW DC and knows the whole region like the back of her hand. She was responsive, empathetic, kind, and knowledgeable, gave great advice, and was just wonderful to work with all around. I have recommended her to family members and friends and they've been thrilled as well. Can't recommend her highly enough!
You will not find a more professional real estate agent than Rina. She provided consistently competent advice in all the stages for the sale of our house in NW Washington DC. Great knowledge of the local market and very helpful from staging to marketing, ending in successful sale. A call to Rina will be returned immediately, which reassures you as a seller. When it came to the last stage--negotiation of final price--Rina's advice was invaluable. Her demeanor--calm, gentle, and always well-informed--is also very helpful in every instance.
We really enjoyed working with Rina, who served as our buyer's agent. She has a calm, professional, friendly demeanor, with a low-key approach that we greatly appreciated. Rina did not try to push us to buy properties that weren't right for us, and she didn't pressure us to make hasty decisions. We put bids on two homes, and in the active market where we were looking, time was of the essence and Rina worked late to get things done. This was our first home purchase, and Rina's approach was an excellent fit for us, and we would certainly recommend her.
Rina did a terrific job selling our home in a slow market cycle. Exceptional job of marketing and making recommendations on both pricing and presentation of property to prospective buyers. Her communication skills are outstanding; we were in active contact, both via phone and email, about potential buyer visits and realtor feedback, throughout a long sales period. Her honest and diplomatic approach along with her patience sets her apart from her peers. Most highly recommend using Rina as your Sales Agent.
Rina is a gem! We met her when she sold our neighbor's house and decided to work with her when selling our own house and purchasing a condo. She's extremely knowledgeable about the market and ran lots of analysis for us, which helped us get the best price possible. She's not pushy but doesn't hesitate to offer sound advice and make you think about your expectations and assumptions. She's a warm and friendly person and yet also very professional. We highly recommend Rina to anyone looking to buy or sell property. You won't regret it.
Rina did a wonderful job helping me to sell our family home. She gave me excellent advice on how to prepare it for selling, was always quick to respond to my requests for referrals, and diligently researched the data as we set the asking price. I relied on her to be rational when I was being emotional. Her support was invaluable, and I fully recommend her.
Rina assisted us in purchasing a home. We were really impressed with her knowledge of the area, her patience, and especially her assistance in guiding us the home that was right for our family. We have recommended Rina to friends and will continue to do so.
Rina has fantastic knowledge of the DMV area. She provided honest and professional information and feedback throughout the entire home buying process. She was also personally readily accessible by email or phone to ensure the process went smoothly and no surprises at closing.

I sold a house through Rina. Generally I am pleased with her services. Selling a house is always very stressful. Rina was very supportive and even helped out with minor repairs required to the house. She recommended contractors who made the repairs and charged reasonably. I would recommend Rina to anyone who is looking at buying or selling a house. Her response time is good.
Working with Rina was an absolute delight. At each stage of the process, she was informative and responsive. Rina was infinitely patient in responding to our requests and needs. She was well organized and focused in moving the process forward efficiently to a successful conclusion. We are only sorry that we only had one house to sell!
I can't say enough about how much we benefitted from working with Rina. She was a great help to us in finding the right home when we relocated from Baltimore to Montgomery County. she is by far the sharpest and nicest agent I have ever worked with.
Rina was a pleasure to work with from our first sit down all the way through selling process. Rina helped prepare our home for the market by identifying minor repairs, scheduling contractors, and staging the house. Thanks Rina!
Rina helped us sell our apartment and buy a house. She was wonderful throughout both processes. Calm, competent and gave great advice. We can't recommend her highly enough!
Rina Kunk was a great help selling our home in 2008. She was very involved and was essential to the quick sale. Assisted with prep, staging and showing. The sale was very quick and sold for over listing within hours.
With the use of digital marketing, predictive analytics, social media targeting, email campaigns, and listing placements on prominent national web sites as well as all local realtor web sites, Rina leverages the full power of the internet to her client’s advantage.
