As clients who had not sold a home in over 20 years, Katrina took the time to walk us through the process and was so patient on days when we were stressed and overwhelmed. She was always available to us and she was definitely the calm in the midst of a storm for us. We appreciated her diligence in thoroughly explaining each step in the process. Without a doubt we could not have chosen a better person to help sell our home and help us on our way to the new home of our dreams. Katrina was a Godsend and we will definitely recommend her to all our family, friends and business associates.

Katrina Griggs!! What can I say about this AMAZING WOMAN OF GOD! She started off as our Realtor but has become apart of our family. In my absence, she worked diligently with my husband to find our dream home that we love so very much. She was so patient knowing that my communication while out to sea was very limited. Even when there was a delay in the paperwork she never once got frustrated with us but continued to reassure us that this home belongs to us. When I called her on the video to tell her I was pregnant she cried and said she can’t wait to meet her grandbaby. God had a different plan and during our loss she not only reached out to give us her condolences but she just sent us this lovely book in the mail. Katrina, we love you so much and we thank God for placing you in our lives. If you’re in the Norfolk area and looking to purchase a home she will take great care of you!!!

First-time homeowner here. I was so nervous about actually buying a house on my own. One of my friends referred me to Katrina and the best decision that I made was calling her. She was so nice and very involved when it came to me but, I’m sure she is with all of her clients. Even though she had other clients, she always made me feel as if I was her only one. Karina is a very sweet lady who believes in home buying education. This was my very first time going through the home buying process and she sat with me and went through the process from start to finish as well as answered any questions that I had. If you are looking for a realtor in the Hampton Roads area, please consider Ms. Katrina Griggs. She is the best in the business, period!
Happy Client, Ronnie Greene
Buyer, Norfolk, VA
If you get the opportunity to work with Katrina, or even meet her, consider yourself extremely blessed! She is one of the most genuine and hard working professionals I have ever worked with. From our very first meeting together, she was always so intent on educating me about the entire home buying process and encouraging me to ask questions on things I was unsure of. She truly treated me as if I were her only client, even though she probably had a dozen other clients she was working with. Every encounter with her was personal, and I never felt rushed working with her. I would consider myself a very indecisive client, but Katrina was always so patient with me and put my needs and wants first. Just to give an example, I found a property I thought I really liked and wanted to put an offer on it. That same night Katrina had all of the documents ready for me to sign, and she was able to put in an offer for me that same night. The very next morning I ended up changing my mind on the house, but thankfully Katrina being so diligent and working so quickly, was able to retract my offer in time before it was ratified. To sum it all up, Katrina is a "Get It Done" type of person, so whatever your home buying/selling desires are she will get it done, Katrina is truly responsible for helping my dream of buying a home come true, and I cannot wait to buy another one with her one day!!
The real estate powers to be were looking down on us when I met Katrina Griggs! We not only have the best agent on the planet!!!!!!!! I was blessed to have been introduced to a very classy, knowledgeable, prodigious, and humble lady who we are now honored to know. Working with Katrina was both educational and rewarding in our experiences purchasing our new home. She set the bar high with superior professionalism in handling our home buying experience. Her open willingness to answer questions and help us understand what was going on helped me feel at ease that things were going smoothly and help us better prepare for things that were coming down the road. Although there were some difficulties that I thought we were going to face, Katrina came to our rescue and fought tooth and nail to ensure that I was satisfied and taken care of as her clients. I would most definitely recommend her if you are in the market to purchase or sell a home. Her expertise in the real estate market and home buying process, combined with unconditional love for the job she does, is unmatched. Stellar service Katrina!! You are our VIP

I really appreciate your hard work and dedication in selling my home. You have been exceptional in every aspect of real estate. I am grateful for your tireless efforts in helping me sell my home. I wish all real estates agents possess your skills and cared as much about there clients as you do. From day one to the end you worked and ensured that everything that needed to be accomplished was accomplished. I just want you to know that you really had my best interest at heart and I thank you for that. I know that you are on top of your game cause you sold my home in 5 days and that is very remarkable track record. You knew what had to be done and you communicated that to me and we made it happen. I can not express enough how much I appreciate your services and I hope all of your clients realize how valuable you are and that they appreciate you as much as I do. It was a pleasure working with you and I enjoyed every aspect of our real estate adventure. You made every thing seem so easy and I enjoyed the agent to client friendship that we established along the way.
"Katrina is a House Hunting Guru. She is very in touch with the needs and wants of her clients. Katrina works hard day and night to ensure that every client is extremely happy. When my husband and I first started our house hunting journey we were at a complete loss and then we heard about Katrina. It felt as if God had just given us our own House Hunting Angel. My family and I only had a short time to move. And that's when we sat down with Katrina who is truly a house whisper. She took all that we were looking for and made it a reality for us. We did not exactly give enough notification to having to buy a home but Katrina is about her business. You can't go wrong with her as your realtor. She worked fast to ensure that we made our deadline. We love Katrina she is above the best. She is caring, kind and understanding. You have to give her a try I guarantee that you will be absolutely glad you did. She is beyond amazing woman. Working with her has made our transition easy and the buying experience was truly great. Thank you, Katrina, for all that you do, and may God continue to bless you."

"Thanks, Katrina for this awesome experience. You are a champion and stand at the top of your craft. We are fortunate to have you as our agent and now friend. Our family absolutely love this house you've helped us acquire. Thank you for REALLY caring. We appreciate you and the job you've done and will always tell people how you held our hand through our first home buying experience. Thank God for putting you in our life."
The Bland Family
Thank you again for everything that you've helped me with for the last few months from grabbing breakfast to making phone calls to the lovely house-warming gift that I am actually making very good use of. You've been a pleasure to work with and I'm very grateful to have met you. I don't expect our relationship to end here. You've been more than a realtor to me and I am highly appreciative of that. If you need anything, feel free to shoot me a text or give me a call. Below is the testimonial. I apologize for not typing this up sooner but better late than never is the phrase I will use for this particular instance lol! May God bless you and keep you!
Katrina Griggs is a truly incredible realtor! I cannot compare it to buying any other home or working with any other realtors because this was my first home and realtor. What I can say is, there’s no possible way that the process could go any more smoothly than this one did. My expectations were exceeded! Not only was I given advice,
I really don't know where to start. Katrina, the house whisperer, Made my home buying experience totally awesome. My co-worker noticed that I was a total wreck trying to learn about the home buying process so she recommended that I use Katrina as my agent. From our first email to days after my closing Katrina has been extremely professional and available for all my crazy questions. I really love the ten home buying commandment and the monopoly board how the home buying process. Those to documents was instrumental in providing an understanding of this home buying experience. After meeting Katrina the first day to look at homes she was able to identify the styles of home I wanted before I could lol. Her knowledge about her profession is second to none. Katrina found the home I dreamed about all the way to the smallest detail. Following her guidance, I was able to close on my dream home.
Katrina was heaven sent to me and I feel she is the best realtor you can find in the area.
Mr. Zander Neal (Buyer)
Katrina, Mike and I wanted to take a moment to express our deep gratitude to you. Buying a new house is a frustrating and painful experience for most people, but not for us and we credit that completely to you. From the very first day that we met with you, you were the perfect mix of personable and professional. You listened carefully and remembered what was important to us. You anticipated our needs, you went to battle for us when necessary, you responded to questions immediately, you did incredible research, communicated clearly and often and you were always supportive and helpful. You made the process an absolute pleasure for us. We were so impressed with your integrity and commitment and we honestly felt as though we were your only clients, even though we know you have many. We cannot thank you enough for your outstanding support throughout the process and we not only count you as our realtor but now as our friend. We look forward to getting settled in so that we can invite you to the beautiful new home that you helped to make ours!
Sincerely, Mike and Susan
Blessings on top of blessings!! Shoutout to my sister Jamicia at McDermott Realty Group for going above and beyond and finding me the best agent.

"Katrina is an amazing realtor! Professional, honest and upfront. She took our vision and made it a reality. I guarantee she will exceed your expectations." The Dunbar Family
"I am writing to express how pleased I was with Katrina Griggs my Realtor at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Towne Realty who assisted me in purchasing my new home in Feb 2018. I began working with Ms. Griggs last year Feb2017 and was looking at Ryan Homes in Chesapeake Va. Katrina and I immediately had a connection, she was prior Military. As my meeting proceeded she gave me an orientation and information on Home buying. She made me feel at home, comfortable and a sense of understanding. Katrina took the time to explain in full detail all questions and concerns. She reassured me she would be there every step of the way and kept her word.
I was very impressed with Katrina’s knowledge
Not only did I buy a new home I gained a lifelong friend. Thank you for all you have done, Katrina is simply AMAZING!!!...
"Katrina Griggs is absolutely perfect providing sound real estate advice and care. She took the time to sit with me before looking at properties to ensure I understood what I wanted, what the process involved, and she understood the bounds from which we were working. She provided exceptional support in locating properties, and it was clear she was not out to gain the highest commission but find me the property that I wanted and could afford. After finding the property I wanted, she professionally walked me through the paperwork and was kind enough to remind me of the things that I had to pay for out of pocket so there were no delays. She clearly worked for me in negotiating the sale price and kept me aware at all times the status of the seller's intent. She attended all house inspections and ensured that any deficiencies with the home were corrected as required. I could not have asked for a better real estate agent, nor as caring a person to assist me in my real estate endeavors."
Working with Ms. Griggs to sell our home was an excellent experience. Her knowledge in real estate and associated transactions ensured that the process was as smooth as possible. We finalized the images for the listing on a Sunday, and on Monday we had an offer which ultimately sold our home! The whole transaction was completed within 20 business days. The speed of the sale could easily be attributed to the quality of the home, but I know it was her skill set that ultimately ensured the process was unimpeded. The great thing is that she has no problem providing her professional opinion to ensure expectations are reasonable which translates to a positive transaction and experience. Hiring Ms. Griggs was one of the best decisions I have made in real estate!
"I figured I would send you a letter just thanking you again for all of what you did for us. We are so grateful and appreciative of the hard work and the kindness you have shown us. We had no idea what we were doing and you really did guide us right along the whole way and without you, we would not have this beautiful home of ours. We truly love this place. The greener the grass gets, the more excited we get to really spend more time outside in our backyard! I've taken up painting and making pictures and picture frames! Also, we both are really getting into gardening! So hopefully this summer there will be lots of colorful flowers taking over the house! :) We will always consider ourselves lucky to have had the privilege of going through this process with you! You are wonderful and I know that you have and will go on to make so many others so happy and content with the homes they choose. You have a way about you that brings ease to people and that's something not too many are blessed with. So again, thank you so much for everything. We couldn't have done it without you!"
- Mr & Mrs. Clark
To whom it may concern, I wanted to thank Berkshire Hathaway for hiring an exceptional person like Katrina. I’ve always been a renter and never dreamed of owning my own home felt it was something that would be too complicated to do

" Ms. Griggs provided excellent service. Always professional and very positive and upbeat personality. Would refer to any family or friend because she takes great pride in her work."
- Ms. Davis
"When I first got into this home buying thing, I had no idea of what it was I was doing. But then came along, Katrina Griggs. She changed my world. From the first day I met Katrina, I knew she was the Realtor made just for me. Professionalism is an understatement for the working style of Katrina Griggs. I felt completely at ease all the time with her out in my home search. The lady is good! She kept me informed of everything and a matter of fact, the home I finally purchased, she spotted it first. All I'm trying to say is, if you are in the market for a home, do yourself a big favor and speak with Katrina (Kat) Griggs the Realtor with Berkshire Hathaway HomesServices."
- Mr. Dulin
"My name is Cristen Cottrell and I recently purchased my first home, thanks to Katrina.
There are so many things I could say about Katrina's efforts. She remained upbeat and optimistic the entire course of looking for a home, even when I started to have my own doubts. She kept my boyfriend included at all times, which I appreciated so much. Anytime he wasn't able to make it for a step of the process, she'd readily ask if he was coming or where he was. That made me extremely happy to know that she was willing to treat us as equals in the buying process. For any question I had, Katrina was able to answer it right away and effectively. She helped me to understand all steps in a home buying process to the point where I could comprehend it in my own way. She's friendly, complimentary, and wonderful to be around. I couldn't have asked for a better first-time home buying experience or a better realtor. I have nothing but good things to say about this experience and I'm so glad we crossed paths!"
- Cristen C.
First of all, the moving is going slower now that we have little things still left at the Norfolk house. I can’t wait until we get all of our stuff moved in. So the design of it all is going to have to wait. Next time we will hire someone to move, Imma needs a week of spa treatment!
What can we say but you made this a super pleasant and quick experience for us. There isn’t a thing we would change. We can say that confidently because I was praying to have someone exactly like you to help us through this process. All of the recommendations you made were right on time, which is why we hope to continue to work with you on future projects. We will be sure to keep in touch and be ready for that BBQ!!!!!"
-With much love, The Wolfinger Family!
"Katrina Griggs is a literal God-send!!! I mean literally! As soon as we met, it was obvious that this very professional lady was soon to become a member of our family. Katrina came into our lives right at the time God was preparing us to purchase a house. She was perceptive as she selected home options that would satisfy all the personalities within our little family. She fought for us when potential business partners behaved questionably and oversaw every aspect of the pre-purchase exercises as if she was purchasing the home for herself. Like I said – a true, blue, family member. Without a doubt, Katrina Griggs was integral to us living our new, beautiful home. We will always be grateful our paths crossed."
"Katrina was always there for us. We want to give a (10) for her service. P.S. Viva Las Vegas!"
