This was my first home buying and selling experience, my husband's second. Kevin represented us for both transactions. He was organized and professional every step of the way, always presenting his best self to us as well as the buyers and sellers with whom we were negotiating. Kevin's priority is his client's best interest -- he will always make the time to clarify questions and make sure you are aware of your rights as a buyer, a seller, or both. The process was a long one for us but Kevin was patient and pleasant the entire time. He provides direction as needed and advises the best next steps for you. You're not just getting a realtor with Kevin, but someone who guides and protects you throughout. Not only does Kevin know the industry, and maintains outstanding connections (multiple companies who we worked with along the way -- including our lender and our inspector -- reached out to Kevin to work with him after our contract had ended, which says a lot about his work ethic, industry knowledge and acumen). But he also knows a lot about the infrastructure of a home, and will mention any concerns or positives about the home/s you tour, to help you better figure out what's most important, most comfortable and/or the safest decision for you and your family. We just closed on our home in December of 2015, and we couldn't be happier. We found the perfect home for us - and it was very much attributed to Kevin's diligence, persistence and direction that we made this decision. He represented us every step of the way and it absolutely made all the difference, down to the detail.

Kevin did a tremendous job guiding us through a difficult settlement process after accepting an offer to sell our house.
Despite hitting bizarre roadblocks, such as a seemingly incompetent appraiser, who deemed our large, modern, covered patio in excellent condition to have a value of NEGATIVE $9000 (she actually lowered the appraised value of the house due to the patio!); Kevin acted as a highly composed and rational mediator as well as negotiator.
Kevin displayed a great ability to understand the psychological component of the process. For example, when settlement was delayed due to issues associated with the buyers getting loan approval, he counselled us to avoid panicking and legally voiding the contract- ultimately his judgement proved correct when we reached settlement successfully.
Kevin has great knowledge of the legalities of real estate as well as a teacher like ability to simplify jargon and complex concepts, hence alleviating seller's concerns.
Finally, Kevin offers his services for an attractive commission, which allows sellers a superior financial outcome to all other realtors that I am aware of.
I Highly recommend Kevin Blackstone!
In 2012 Kevin helped me find and purchase my first home in Virginia and I could not have been happier. When it came time to sell my home, once again I called upon Kevin. He went above and beyond to make my selling experience as painful as possible which we all know at times can be extremely stressful. Kevin is easy to work with, friendly and extremely knowledgeable of the real estate market. He was always available and constantly followed up and kept me on track with the entire process. I never had to worry that something was going to slip through the cracks. Kevin always kept my best interest at the top of the priority list. I appreciated Kevin's honesty, professionalism, preparedness, enthusiasm and patience. I would definitely call upon Blackstone Realty and the expertise of Kevin for my future home sale/purchase as well as highly recommend him. As a side, awesome sign!! Thank you Kevin, you are truly the best!
Amazing! Kevin provided me with exactly the level of service I desired. He used a professional photographer, created a beautiful collage of pictures to advertise my property, and was always available when I had a question. He was able to secure an offer at list price within just two days of the property being on the market. I attribute that to his thorough knowledge of the market and assisting me in pricing it just right. He helped me identify local contractors to assist in any repairs that came from the home inspection too. I was able to close within 30 days. If you mention this review from Alysha, he will offer you a nice incentive to use his services. I highly recommend Blackstone Realty and will definitely use this company again in the future.
Kevin is a pleasure to work with and really has the family's best interest in mind. He steadily fed non-bias information as my family and I searched for our home. He was patient and listened, very professional and knowledgeable of the buying process and constantly ran numbers and followed-up on information. We had several questions and were indecisive for a long time. Kevin's was great. He made sure we had the information we needed to make an informed decision. Kevin read the fine print on each of the "deals" the seller offered (down payment amounts, options, etc.). Kevin helps you sort out your requirements, needs and finds the best solution for that. He isn't overbearing at all; he knows how to give the information and allow you to make your own decision. Definitely working with Kevin again if we move or sell our rental property.
Kevin Blackstone helped me make some tough decisions with my properties more than once and always provided me with ALL the honest information to make the best informed decision. I really appreciated his frank, sincere approach to real estate and his attention to my finances and personal situation. He is remarkably astute and leaves nothing unattended; covering details far and beyond my expectations. He is extremely knowledgeable in the industry and has the right connections to make a positive experience. His patience throughout my buying and selling scenarios guarantees that I'll be working with Kevin for any and all future realtor needs. He knows what he is talking about.
This is our second home we have bought using Kevin as our realtor. His knowledge and understanding of what our needs were surpassed anything we could of imagined. He was very attentive and guided us throughout the entire process.
If you need a realtor who is understanding of your needs, punctual, and trustworthy, then Kevin is your guy. He is extremely knowledgeable in his field of work and can answer any questions you have. I would highly recommend him to anyone!
Working with Kevin made our house search a stress free and smooth sailing experience. He walks you through every step of the process and makes sure every step is clear. During our search he was always available to answer any and all questions. I could not have asked for a better realtor!
Love working with Kevin. 2 transactions, selling and buying, all in one process....worked out very well.
Kevin Blackstone helped us to purchase our recent home. He is very personable and responsive. He was knowledgeable about the market and guided us through every step of the process. We HIGHLY recommend Kevin's services to anyone wishing to purchase or sell their home!
Kevin did an absolutely amazing job in helping my wife and I purchase our home. He's very knowledgeable, patient and responsive. Kevin's customer service was outstanding and made the home buying experience enjoyable. If you are looking to purchase your first or second home, I would highly recommend hiring Kevin Blackstone as your real estate agent. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
In 2012 I purchased my first home with the help of Kevin. From searching to closing Kevin made my interests, needs, and protection a priority. He was patient, knowledgeable and answered any and all my questions. He made sure to keep me in the loop about every detail regarding my transaction, kept on top of important deadlines, and was connected with all parties involved. He walked through all the paperwork with me and any anxieties I had about the home buying process were put at bay. If you want an honest, experienced, patient and connected realtor who will make you a priority, Kevin is the absolute best. In fact when my husband and I began looking for our new house, Kevin is the only realtor I ever considered working with.
Kevin is an outstanding realtor. I wouldn't use any other realtor in the future.
