About Me

I have been fortunate to make Northern Virginia my home for most of my life. This gives me a unique look into the area and market. I have worked in DC, Tysons, Alexandria, Fairfax and more - I understand the commute! After owning a business in DC, I finally pursued my dream of becoming a realtor in 2004. 

I believe there is nothing better than helping someone buy or sell a home which are life changing events. I respect that it can be stressful and I work very hard to simplify the process. It is also important because a home is part of a person's financial security and one of the most expensive things they will purchase in their lifetime. I find working with first time buyers exciting and I think it is great to see someone in their first home. I received my certification as a Military Relocation Professional because I had a strong desire to help our military. I also have other designations: Accredited Buyers Representative, Senior Real Estate Specialist, Accredited Staging Professional, Multi-year Million Dollar Sales Club, three time Five Star Professional and I am a member of the Top Agent Network.

I am a graduate of Annandale High School and the University of Tennessee. After leaving Tennessee, I moved back to the area because of my family, professional opportunities, and the great resources that being a Northern Virginia resident provides.

“Kathy is a fantastic agent- she truly understands the needs of her clients and gives her all, 100% of the time. Would recommend for anyone needing a knowledgeable local agent!”
David, Manassas (Seller)
“Kathy is the Wayne Gretzky of house buying and getting property rented. It’s like Alex Ovechkin on your team taking slap shots. A “must have” member of your team when buying and renting houses. ”
Laura, Tyler and Fred (Buyer)
“We've now worked with Kathy Showker twice - the purchase of our first home and the subsequent sale of that home. Kathy makes the process feel simple and she keeps you updated at each turn. She is patient, always makes time for questions, and is efficient in her communications.”
Sarah, Reston (Seller)
“Kathy Shower is great real estate agent. She is extremely professional, personable, and detailed oriented. She sold my condo in just a couple of days. I highly recommend Kathy for your next real estate transaction. You won't be disappointed!”
Robin White, Manassas (Seller)
“No one else was in the running - knew it had to be Kathy! Kathy listens and understands about any issues that come up - and nothing throws her for a loop. She's handled it all before. She's the best. Made everything so easy on us - she took on the stress so we didn't have to worry about a thing.”
Christine W, Alexandria (Seller)
“Kathy Showker is an excellent choice for a realtor, she get's to know her clients and their needs. She does an exceptional job on marketing materials and great with effectively communicating with her clients throughout the process. I commend and recommend Kathy Showker as a top personality and real estate agent in the DC Metropolitan area, especially in my home-base are of Northern VA.”
Renee Lawrence (Seller)
“Kathy provided excellent service!! She listened to me when I explained what was important to me and what was not important. She was able to show me properties that met my requirements and I was able to make a buying decision within a few weeks. She stayed on top of the transaction and provided useful information through out the buying process. I have purchased three homes, this was by far the easiest and best buying experience.”
Roy Seabolt, Clifton, VA (Buyer)
“Kathy's attention to detail and her understanding of the process was paramount to the success of the transaction. Even with a blip in the radar at the last minute (not her fault), she managed a work around and brought everything in to meet the desired time frames. She is an excellent realtor and we have already recommended her to a friend!”
Wayne Clifford (Buyer)
“Kathy was amazing! As a first time buyer, she held my hand every step of the way. She understood my needs and helped me find a great house! ”
Rheanna, Springfield (Buyer)
“Overall just a great experience with Kathy Showker handling my sale. She was professional, friendly, available and attentive. She was very knowledgeable about my condo complex's history and recent sales. She chose a great photographer, and we had a lot of traffic right away. I had a good offer in no time, and she guided me through the selling process.”
Terry Amthor, Arlington (Seller)
“Kathy Showker couldn't have made the home buying process any easier. The house I purchased already had a bid on it that the sellers were about to accept, but because of Kathy's quick work and negotiating skills, I was able to get my offer in and accepted within a few hours. She explained every aspect of the process fully and was there for me every step of the way! I started working with Kathy after my previous realtor had disappeared off the face of the earth, so it was very refreshing how responsive and reliable Kathy was. We were in constant communication during the process, and she was very patient when I kept changing my mind about which area I wanted to live in. I had been working with my previous realtor for almost six months with no luck, and the home buying process became so frustrating that I was on the verge of giving up and renting again. After my first meeting with Kathy, I immediately became excited again and she didn't waste my time with properties that didn't suit me. The viewing, offer, and closing processes were incredibly quick and easy and I felt like I didn't have to worry about anything.”
Alya, Leesburg VA (Buyer)
“Kathy Showker's real estate agent knowledge, local experience and skills are so advanced they can only be rivaled by the beard of Zeus.”
Laura & Fred (Buyer)
