Rolfe Kratz, a licensed real estate agent since 1997, was raised by a real estate family. His mother, Annette Kratz, was an agent for more than 32 years prior to her retirement from the business in 2011. Rolfe's father, Charley Kratz, was always involved in the purchase and sale of investment properties with Rolfe helping to repair and fix up the houses his father bought. It was only natural that with these influences Rolfe would become a licensed agent after graduation from Thomas Aquinas College. Under the tutelage of his mother, Rolfe quickly became an asset to the business as he combined the training from Annette with updated technologies in the real estate industry. Rolfe and Annette formed a team that would close hundreds of transactions and help many clients realize the dream of home ownership.
Born and raised in Fairfax County, Todd first obtained his real estate license in 1992, back when there was no such thing as buyer representation. Over the years, his real estate experience included working with a national builder as well as reputable title companies in Northern Virginia where he has conducted thousands of settlements.
Todd was responsible for training agents in properly representing their clients on both sides of the transaction. He brought his knowledge and experience back to full-time real estate agency and his many clients have benefitted from his knowledge, experience and a level of customer service that's hard to find today.
Todd is an Accredited Staging Professional and Interior Designer and is an annual recipient of the NVAR Multi-Million Award and the NVAR Top Producer Award.
Like many in this region, I originally came to Washington, in the 1980s, to work for the federal government, and I did so in one capacity or another for more than two decades. But from the time I started looking for our first home in 1993, I’ve had an absolute fascination with homes and the real estate business. It’s the biggest investment you will make in your life, but it is also your home and needs to be right for you in so many ways.
I most love the fact that my work involves helping people, so if you are not sure if you are ready to buy or sell, or whether you even want to, lets have coffee and talk things out.
And when you are ready, I am here to help you with every step of the process. After all, it’s your home we are buying or selling; I will make sure you have all the information you need to be confident that you understand the process, and comfortable making decisions. If you want to know more about how I go above and beyond in anticipating my client’s needs, please see my online reviews and recommendations.
When not at the office or on the road with clients, I can be found playing with my border collies or working with a rescue group to get other dogs into their own very special homes. I also particularly enjoy helping clients with dogs find homes that work well for them and their furry little ones.
