• My Story
     

    Entrepreneur and Real Estate Agent

    Katie Geffken works hard for her clients, guiding them to make the best possible real estate decisions and helping their process to be smooth, easy, and fun.

     

    Relying on her background in marketing strategy and small business ownership, Katie is practiced at dealing with (and making the most of!) the types of tough decisions that often come up during the real estate buying and selling process.

     

    Katie owns Biker Barre, a boutique fitness studio on Capitol Hill offering indoor cycling and barre classes. As a small business owner on Capitol Hill, Katie is particularly aware of many of the trends affecting real estate in that area of Washington.

     

    In addition to the Hill, Katie has become expert in working with first time home buyers - guiding them through the process, and helping them to find homes and neighborhoods that meet their needs. Katie began her real estate career searching for her own first home with her husband, Andrew. Katie and Andrew got creative about buying their first home; discovering neighborhoods where they could have it all and a fraction of the cost of renting.

     

    Prior to owning Biker Barre, Katie worked in marketing strategy and advertising. She brings the skills she learned working for international brands to bear for her listing clients, creating customized marketing plans that make sense for each unique property and client. Katie's listings have been featured in the Washington Post and Prince of Petworth blog.

     

    A graduate of the University of Michigan twice over (undergrad and business school), Katie serves as the Co-President of the Ross School of Business Alumni Club of Washington. Katie and her husband Andrew live in beautiful Hyattsville, MD.

    Great for First-Time Home Buyers

    “My fiancé and I had been looking for our dream home for a few months. Nothing was “it” - we even had two offers fall through. After the second failed offer, we decided to “break-up” with our original agent and found Katie. She was a complete 180 in our home search and buying experience! Incredibly professional, knowledgeable, and just cool to be around. Our dream home ended up being the first one we looked at with Katie and she sealed the deal. I would definitely recommend her for anyone looking for a home, but especially for first-time home buyers. She’s awesome!” - Ashleigh and Brian

    Knows the Maket

    "Katie stepped in and told me that a house I was about to put an offer in on was way overpriced. Thanks to her intervention I ended up in a
    beautiful, affordable apartment in a neighborhood I love. And the house I was previously thinking about had its price dropped by 30K the week
    after her very timely intervention!" - Martha G.

    Took the Stress Out of It

    "Working with Katie was great! She is extremely knowledgeable about the DC/MD market and had some great insight on a variety of neighborhoods in different areas. When we would walk through homes, she had a great eye and would point things out that we never would have noticed on our own. She was dedicated to helping us and was always available to answer any questions we had and always made us feel like a priority. Buying a house is a stressful process, but Katie really took the stress out of it for us. We had 100% confidence that everything was handled perfectly. If you are thinking of buying a home, do yourself a favor and hire Katie immediately!" - Jess and John B.

    Katie has found that the best way for most people to start a conversation about real estate is casually. Even if you're years away from buying or aren't sure that selling is right for you, Katie is happy to sit down and explain the process so that you can make the best decisions for you.
