​I had a challenging situation to say the least.  Kathy helped me with every aspect of my sale and purchase of a new home.  She is very easy to work with , answers all calls and questions.  Please know if you choose Kathy to be your agent you are making the right decision !!!

- Stacey Tucker

​WOW!!! I can't fully describe how lucky we were to find Kathy. Let me preface this story with the fact that we are first-time home buyers... She was recommended through a friend and was immediately responsive to our needs. She made it seem like we were her only client and with as much time as she dedicated to us, I thought we were! When we found the perfect home, she got right to work. It turned out to be a short sale... The funny thing about short sales is they are not a short process. As the weeks past she gave us constant updates. At times we thought the deal might fall through but Kathy provided steadfast expertise and her honest opinion which allowed us to most forward in a way that was the most comfortable for us. When our timeline started getting down to the wire Kathy negotiated all aspects of the deal so that we came out on top. Our closing was chaotic but thank God she was there. We would not have gotten our beautiful new home without Kathy! We not only have a new home, we have a new friend. Again, I can't sing her praises enough. Top notch real-estate firm. Top notch real-estate agent.

​Kathy has made my experience of purchasing and financing my new home stress free and effortless.  I was able to put my trust and faith in her knowledge of the real estate industry and found a home where I could feel safe, secure and financially sound.  I will definitely use Kathy’s services when purchasing another property as well as recommend her to others.

​Having been in the real estate and Home Construction business for 25 years, I would consider Kathy Keene-Smith a seasoned veteran and in the top 2% of professionals I have worked with.  I had the good fortune to sell one of my homes in Smithfield VA with Kathy while I was living/working in Florida. Kathy was consistently 2 steps ahead of what I, the seller, and the buyers needed to process the transaction.  I can firmly recommend Kathy Keene-Smith with NO reservation! 

- Chuck Bolen

Wyndy,  Thank you SO much for your efforts on our behalf!  Donna and I were delighted with the properties you showed us, and were simply amazed that we could find the PERFECT prospective home on the first day of viewings.  You really understood our needs.  It would be my pleasure to serve as a reference; I offer my very highest recommendation.

- Barry Gross

​Simply the best! We were purchasing our fist new construction home. We depended heavily on Kathy’s impressive expertise on the process. She knew the questions to ask. Kathy provided sound advice when we were making difficult decisions. She routinely went to bat for us when we had requests of the builder’s agent, and she always got results.  Should I find myself in the real estate market again – as either seller or buyer – Kathy is the first person I’ll call.  She is the consummate professional.

- Christopher Rhoden

​Kathy took time out for us in the middle of the Christmas Holidays. She found out we were only in town for a few days. She went out of her way to make her schedule fit with our timeframe. It was a joy to have her as our agent. She ended up showing us at least 15 homes. We were given the master touch with Kathy. She has a wonderful personality as well as being so very professional.  I would recommend her to anyone I found that needed a realtor in this area. We feel she went above and beyond for us. Kathy also took and found us our loan company and took care of our sale here while we were still in Massachusetts. We could not have done it without her.

- Jan Blair & Richard Harubin

​Kathy represented me well during all phases of the house hunt and purchase. She's a good person and fun to interact with. When the time comes for another purchase, I will use her again.

- Michael Webster

​We are so fortunate to have been able to work with Kathy Keene. We would highly recommend her to anyone selling, buying or building a house. Kathy not only helped us to sell our home but she also helped us through the process of building our dream home. Kathy is very personable and so fun to work with! She went above and beyond to keep us informed and educated on the process of selling our home and building our current home. Kathy made herself very available and was quick to respond to our phone calls and e-mails as questions came up. If you are looking for an agent that will do anything possible to satisfy your needs in finding the perfect home or selling your current home and make this a painless experience we highly recommend Kathy...

​David and I could not be more grateful and impressed with Wyndy Woods, our real estate agent. We had endured evicting two tenants, repairs and high maintenance tenants in order to keep our lovely 1st home in the Thoroughgood neighborhood. We tried selling a number of times but were generally unhappy with the lackluster results prompted by a failing market and agents who never seemed to have our financial interests at heart. When faced with tenants determined to break their rental lease 7 months early, we were looking for options. I knew Wyndy prior to her retiring from the sherrif's department and so I already knew her work ethic and integrity were beyond reproach. She met with us and helped us take the emotion out of our decision. We decided to list the house for sale. Wyndy performed a thorough market analysis and marketing plan. Our house was listed in mid-july and within 10 days Wyndy secured the offer that sold our house.  Wyndy steered us through the entire negotiation process, always keeping our financial goals at the forefront. Wyndy made it happen for us. She is the consummate professional, always hard-working and extremely knowledgeable. She put her skills to work for us and turned an uncertain and stressful situation into a win for the Somers family. We highly recommend Wyndy Woods!

​T​his is the third home that I have bought in the last 7 years and Kathy was by far the best realtor that I have had.  I gave her less than a weeks' notice that I was coming in from out of town to look for a house and she dropped everything that she was doing to open up her Saturday and Sunday to take me around.  She took me to see all the houses that I wanted to see, not the ones that she wanted me to see like some of the shady realtors in my past.  By the end of the first day she knew exactly what I was looking for.  Sunday she filled the whole day with homes that fit into my criteria.  Unfortunately, I didn't find the perfect home that weekend but I became familiar with the communities that I would like to live in.  I found a home on-line once I returned home and asked her to look into it for me.  She went out of her way to video the house that was still under construction as well as the same type house that was already built.  She was awesome and we have put a contract on that home.  The best experience I have had purchasing a home.  If you are looking to buy a home in the Hampton Roads area, Virginia, don't use any other realtor than Kathy Keene.

- Jeremy Harnack

​Kathy helped me with the purchase of my new home.  From the start she was right there helping me every step of the way!  Explaining all the technical terms when I didn't understand.  I contacted her through Zillow on a Friday and Sunday we were looking at houses, by Monday we were submitting an offer! 

If you want excellent service then choose Kathy!!

- Robin Pruitt

​She's a fantastic agent to have at your side. Kathy is very quick to see what you want in a property and what you don't. If you really like a property and someone makes an offer and you need to make an offer that day to be considered, she will come to you and prepare everything you need to send to the agent. She is a very dedicated worker and is a great person also. I was blessed to have her as an agent. Strongly recommend.

- Liliya Highfill

​I can't even begin to describe how fabulous Kathy Keene Martin was! She was so responsive and helpful as we looked for a rental home in the Suffolk area. This was especially wonderful as we weren't local and had a lot of questions. Kathy was willing to meet with us on a holiday weekend. She scheduled all of the appointments and was able to make recommendations for neighborhoods we liked but were not even aware of. She spent an enormous amount of time showing us around and helping us see a variety of rentals that were within our specific price range and requirements. Kathy was also excellent at communicating both before our rental hunting trip and after. She was willing to make calls for rentals we didn't have appointments for but saw as we were out and about. She was great at negotiating the rent price and lease terms. I would not hesitate to recommend Kathy. She is a fabulous agent and I would also consider her a friend after the time we spent with her. My only regret is that we were not in a position to buy a home with her!

- Deidre Cammack

​Kathy found us our dream house! She is so easy to deal with, very down to earth. She was willing to work late nights and long weekend days with us to find the right home. She was very informative and really understands the buying/selling process. Her preferred partners also were able to provide my loan/mortgage, in home security system and homeowners insurance. She has also introduced us to a great contractor that will help us update our new kitchen. Kathy took the time to understand what we wanted and needed - I would absolutely recommend her to anyone!

- Holly Clevenger

​Kathy was extremely approachable and helpful. She was extremely efficient yet very detailed and knowledgeable. Finding a home with her was very comfortable and that awkward feeling you get when searching for a home with a complete stranger never existed. We started our search and put an offer on the home we loved within 3 weeks! Definitely recommend her!

- Jeff Rimmer

​As a first time home buyer, I couldn't have found a better agent. Kathy walked me through the whole process and made sure that I felt comfortable every step of the way. She didn't rush me and was always available to help me with any questions or concerns.

- Briseida Castro

​Kathy is very professional as well as friendly. She was able to help us find a short term rental, which we found to be almost impossible on our own. She responded quickly and was able to secure us a place within a week of viewing several rentals. I would highly recommend her to others. 

- Heidi Kenny

​Kathy had been working with me for over 2 years to find a home. When we first started looking, I was uncertain whether I wanted a house or a condo. She showed me several of each until I found a house that I wanted to buy. It was a short sale that due to multiple issues on the sellers side failed to close. Throughout the process, her advice and experience guided me through a long and difficult time. After that, I decided to take a break from looking for a home. She understood and kept in contact. A few months passed and I said I was ready again. She immediately went to work. Having work with me for so long she knew what I was looking for and would send me listings she thought I might be interested in. We went and looked at several. Then came the day she sent me a lead she said was perfect for me. She was right! We scheduled a viewing and it was the one. We submitted an offer and it was accepted. I closed in October and love living in my home. I strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a home. She also helped a friend of mine and his family's experience with her was excellent.

- Stuart Gray

​Kathy did an amazing job representing us. She answered her phone every time we called and took the time to answer all of our questions and explain the process. The whole transaction went extremely smooth and she got us a better deal than we could have ever dreamed of! I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family, in fact I already have!

​Kathy helped us to find the best place. She has great communication skills and experience helping customers to negotiate and make the best choice. She always shows her excellence and efficiency taking the time to review information and making easy to understand. Thanks Kathy.

I recently listed my home with Keene Woods Realty and my experience has been absolutely amazing. The same day my home was listed, Keene Woods Realty was already showing my house to interested buyers. Both Kathy and Wyndy made me feel as if I was their only client. I truly felt they both had a vested interest in not only the sale of my home but, more importantly, the transition I was making in my life - making sure they were doing everything possible to put me in a position where I can start enjoying my day to day life more. Without hesitation, I would refer friends and family to Keene Woods Realty. Selling your home can be a very stressful situation ... Kathy and Wyndy made this a truly fun and exciting adventure for me. I can't say enough about my wonderful experience ... These women are truly rare gems in the competitive world of real estate ... I knew they were looking out for my best interest - and that's a very rare thing these days.
