Testimonials

“Rob sold the home next to me in a near record time. I asked my neighbor about Rob because I was ready to put my home on the market. My neighbors had dealt with Rob before and told me he was the best. They were absolutely right. Rob had to deal with a first contract which was extremely frustrating for him. In all instances he represented us in a totally professional manner and clearly understood our concerns and addressed them. As stated earlier, Rob sold my neighbor's home and they felt he was the best agent they had ever had. Of the 4 previous homes I have sold Rob stands far above his peers in all aspects of sales performance. Century 21.Redwood Realty is very fortunate to have Rob on their staff.”

“Rob's our trusted advisor on real estate matters. We truly value his judgment, expertise, and attention to detail. His advice on how to prepare the house for sale lead to us selling the property before it even hit the market! A prospective buyer saw it the day we took pictures, and fell in love with it. We credit Rob for knowing how to prepare and market a property so that it sells quickly! ”

“Rob Carter was a huge asset in helping us make a competitive offer once we found a home we liked and in navigating the process after that point -- from negotiating with the seller to the closing process to the final walk-through. Those are not typically things you think about when starting your house hunt, but are just as important as finding the right home. Rob not only paid close attention to details throughout that entire process but offered us excellent counsel and advice every step of the way. ”
Melissa Mandato, Alexandria, VA (Buyer)

“Rob had a difficult buyer and situation to deal with, and managed the situation professionally and with dogged determination! He kept me and my Brother (Co-Owners) informed on almost a daily basis until and after the closing. Neither my Brother could attend the closing, so Rob made the electronic paperwork as painless as could be. I will be happy to endorse and refer Rob to anyone moving to the DC area. Please thank him and his Broker for a job well done. KLT”

“Rob was recommended to us by close friends who had bought a house with him recently. Rob is knowledgeable about structural issues beyond just how a house looks and feels and gave us advice on whether we might find issues with an inspection. Rob understood our needs and we appreciated that he was honest in his opinions on whether a house was right for us-- sometimes even advising us not to make an offer and explaining why the house did not fit with our needs. He understood the competitive market and gave us advice on how to make offers that were competitive and would be taken seriously. There were some items to address after the offer was accepted and before the house closed that Rob did a great job of resolving to everyone's (buyer's & seller's) satisfaction. We had some unique needs with how we wanted our purchase to be structured and Rob took those concerns seriously and did what he could do to make everyone happy with the sale.”

“Rob Carter has been exceedingly helpful in our home searching and home selling processes. On our first go round we had tried a different realtor, but upon switching to Rob we've immediately felt more comfortable, and couldn't imagine using another realtor. ”
Kyle S., Silver Spring (Buyer)

“Simply put, we would not have succeeded in purchasing this home without Rob Carter's knowledge of the kind of home we were looking for (in terms of price and condition), his initiative in following up on a cold call from the seller and getting into the property ASAP to confirm it suited our desires, and the speed with which he facilitated the transaction. All of these factors combined to enable a pre-market purchase. Had he not provided these services and had we not been afforded the opportunity to buy the property pre-market, I'm confident we would not have obtained the home as we would have been forced to compete with investor/builders with their more attractive all-cash offers. This is the second home we've bought with Rob and would recommend him without reservation. ”

“Rob was recommended to me by my daughter who works with him through her financing company (Atlantic Coast Mortgage). She said that Rob was one of the best realtors that she has ever worked with and is fully committed to provide the best service available to each of his clients. He is motivated and aggressive in getting the best possible price for your home whether you are selling or buying. Our experience with Rob could not have gone any smoother or better. From our first meeting with him where he explained his process and how he and his team were going to market and sell our home, all the way through settlement, his expertise and knowledge were invaluable. His recommendation on the listing price was spot on, which made our home very attractive to prospective buyers. The brochure for the house was perfect. The pictures were professionally done and the write-up enhanced the photos by pointing out all of the features and upgrades associated with our property. Within 4 days of listing the house, we had 4 contract offers all significantly over our asking price. We listed the house on a Thursday and it was sold by the following Tuesday. Rob works with you throughout the entire process and keeps you informed on a daily, if not hourly, basis. He responds to your e-mails or phone call immediately and never leaves you hanging. He involves you in all of the important decision points and is very good at keeping you relaxed and calm during the entire process. He is the kind of person who wants to be involved in all aspects of selling your home and wants you to use him to the fullest. If you want a professional realtor who represents you and your property in a manner that draws people in, we would highly recommend Rob Carter. You will be a very happy client!”

“Rob was fantastic. My wife and I were new to the area and as such, completely unfamiliar with the market. Rob is knowledgeable, intelligent, polite, responsive, and very savvy. He was referred to me by a friend and I will be referring Rob to my friends and colleagues. In my mind this is the best indicator of satisfaction.”

“Rob is an excellent agent. We used him for our first home purchase and he made the experience enjoyable. When it was time for a bigger house for our growing family we immediately turned to Rob to help us find the perfect property. He advised us through the process and was always available to answer questions. His knowledge and attention to detail are unmatched. ”

“Despite the ups and downs of looking at houses, we look back on our search as a positive experience, mostly because of Rob Carter. He stuck with us and made us comfortable and confident in our search. Having heard stories from friends about their experiences buying homes, we feel we got very lucky with Rob. His attention to detail (looking at houses closely for warning signs, staying on top of paperwork, making sure we were always informed about coming steps in the closing process) was one of the things we got most lucky with. We can't say enough about how much feeling confident in Rob made us confident in our purchase. His knowledge of which houses would be good investments vs. which weren't was invaluable and we really came to rely on that in our decision-making process. We felt very comfortable that the house we ended up buying was not only the right one space/location-wise, but money-wise. He was also great at explaining the tools we had at our disposal for winning a contract. He also made the stressful process easy. We knew we trusted him and, in a process in which you deal with a lot of different people--from mortgage officers to underwriters--from different places, it was a huge weight off our shoulders to know we could run anything by Rob before moving forward. We valued most the time he took to explain things (sometimes multiple times) so that we always felt comfortable with and informed about the decisions we were making. ”

“Rob Carter's knowledge, guidance, calm, professionalism, attention to detail, and clear commitment to excellent service made this particular experience of buying a home an absolute pleasure every step of the way. I can't recommend him highly enough, and will be referring all my friends and colleagues who are interested in buying homes in the Washington D.C. area to Rob.”

“I worked with Rob for nearly 2 years searching for the perfect property to buy in DC. My list of requirements for my future home was quite difficult to meet, but Rob worked closely with me to find just the right properties. At every turn, he warned me off properties that didn't fit my needs and desires, told me about issues he saw with the property and neighborhood, and truly at all times kept my best interests in mind. I never felt pressured in any way to move forward, and Rob was exceptionally knowledgeable about not only various parts of DC, but also the myriad concerns that go into purchasing a property. He was always responsive and held my hand through the whole process (and through multiple offers) and I am finally (and happily) in my first home thanks to Rob!”
Alex, Washington, DC (Buyer)

“Rob's knowledge of the market and neighborhood was second to none. He and the team were professional, friendly and patient with us in selling our home. We had a perfect experience and outcome, and will be recommending him to all of our friends. ”

“Rob Carter is exceptional. He helped me sell a family home in DC. This was my third one in three years. What a difference an outstanding realtor makes. I live 3,000 miles away and not once did I feel the need to return to oversee the sale. Rob responded quickly from my first contact and every time thereafter. He is knowledgeable and has built a network of contacts to assist in his success. He made the process easy and his attention to detail kept the sale on schedule. What I liked most about Rob was he was confident, honest, humble, and a man of integrity. I got a great price for the home. We closed on time. I can’t say enough good things about him or the team. Andrea is fantastic too. I highly recommend him. Rob Carter is the best!”

“Rob worked very hard to make the successful sale in a "low ownership" building which is very tough especially in DC where this is a very uncommon situation and where all the other apartments are brand new. he was on top of all the details and worked closely with buyers agents as well as the buyers lenders. I would highly recommend working with Rob.”

“I have the utmost trust and faith in Rob Carter. I have dealt with him in previous transactions and enjoy dealing with him. Rob is a true professional who knows his trade, the area and its trends. He has great attention to detail and is conscientious about returning calls and working through issues. I recommend Rob to everyone I can. He is excellent as an agent. He takes a stressful situation and brings calm because you can trust and rely on him to get you through it.”

“Rob is absolutely amazing. The sale of my house went smoothly and quickly all because of him. He provided expert advice in staging, pricing, marketing, and many other things. He was also willing to answer all of my many questions patiently and almost immediately. On top of that, Rob also helped us with the purchase of our next home and he lined up the sale of this house with the closing of our new house perfectly. Rob was our advocate and we knew we could trust him to guide us in the right direction. We could not have survived this process without him! Thank you!”
Rebecca, Virginia (Seller)

“Rob was incredibly helpful during this time and helped guide us through the process. Without a doubt, we wouldn't have gotten our house without his advice on the offer. Rob was persistent and very knowledgable. He was always readily available to help us and offer good insight. We initially we were working casually with another broker at the same time, but we stopped working with her when Rob's expertise and availability proved more valuable. ”
Chelsea, Washington, DC --> Arlington, VA (Buyer)

“Rob was very helpful during my recent condo search and purchase. A friend referred me to Rob and now I'll definitely refer other friends to him. He made sure I had the right search and reassured me that my expectations were reasonable and I'd find the right condo. He checked in regularly and always got me into the condos I wanted to see. He gave great guidance when I found my new home, including walking me through the process and offering support when I needed it. I'm now in my new home and couldn't be happier. I definitely recommend Rob to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!”
Emily Florio, Washington DC (Buyer)

“Rob Carter was absolutely superb from start to finish. As an overseas owner, we were more than usually dependent on his expertise and advice. He was willing to put himself out on numerous occasions to make the sale not only possible, but highly successful. I would recommend his services in the strongest possible terms, and without the slightest reservation.”
Paul Tennant, UK (Seller)

“Rob Carter received an excellent review from a good friend and coworker of mine - it was a no-brainer to choose him for my home buying experience as well. Rob does a great job of thoroughly inspecting things the buyer may be too excited to notice -- for example, he immediately noted the age of HVAC and water heater while I was busy checking out the Master Bedroom and closet space. He gives an honest, knowledgeable opinion of where to come in with offers and was very helpful during the negotiation process. I trusted him throughout the entire process, and he landed me in my current home for a great deal under the asking price! I would recommend Rob Carter to friends, family, coworkers - he did an amazing job and I couldn't be more satisfied with the outcome. ”
Clair, Alexandria VA (Buyer)

“Exemplary Service! Rob Carter will exceed all expectations. My Husband and I found Rob Carter through Yelp a little over a year prior to using him. We have bought and sold several properties and already had a real estate agent whom we loved dearly. Unfortunately, our Agent did not service DC and we had to find someone new to work with. We were nervous about using a new agent because we had very high standards. It is not easy to find someone you can trust with high dollar purchases. Rob Carter had the highest rating on Yelp, but we were naturally skeptical about this. However, in the first phone call he completely won us over. His technical knowledge about the DC market and even about troublesome tenant issues blew us away. He actually gave us advice to wait another year to sell due to the fact that the market was steadily rising. Boy was he right! Rob checked in with us every quarter to make sure we were doing okay, we had nightmare tenants and were going through an unending eviction process. Rob would periodically call and give us helpful advice on things we could do as we endured through this. When we were finally able to sell, Rob was able to show us how we could list our property as-is and still make a generous profit. He is a true technical expert at numbers and sales predictions. He wrote out various scenarios and recommended a lower list price to create a bidding war. His advice was spot on. We had 4 contracts in less than 5 days. Again, Rob gave sound advice on which contract to choose. We had a flawless closing in less than 30 days. We did not even have to pay an extra month’s mortgage because of how fast it was. We literally received our profits in our bank one day after closing. If you want someone who knows the DC market and want to make the highest return on your property, Rob Carter is your guy. Words cannot express how satisfied we are with his service. ”

“We could not be happier. Our house sold very quickly and well above asking price under very favorable terms. Rob Carter's strategy was ambitious, but realistic. The marketing campaign was flawless. The negotiations were handled extremely well. Rob was really great to work with. He understood our priorities. He was always easy to reach and he and worked hard to get us a good deal! ”
