Testimonials

“This was my 3rd home sale with Rob Carter, and I would never use anyone else (to buy or sell). He is the most professional professional I've ever worked with: responsive, knows the market in and out, gave me a detailed idea of what to expect (which was exactly what wound up happening!), was always ready with advice yet did not push me into anything I wasn't comfortable with. Excellent sale process from start to finish!”

“Rob Carter was fantastic throughout the process. He was knowledgeable, attentive and helpful. We had several unique things that came up, including the listing agent selling our house to another buyer while we were under contract! Rob handled everything perfectly and always made sure we understood the situation. Professional, knowledgeable and really great to work with. Would highly recommend .”

“Rob Carter is a great agent and a pleasure to work with. He has a great knowledge of the entire DC Metro area and was very accurate at assessing value in every neighborhood. Rob had our interests in mind with every showing and patiently and thoroughly walked us through our home buying adventure. Finally, Rob was a breeze to contact by text, email or phone any time we had a question or concern. We'd certainly use Rob again and happily recommend him to others.”

“Without fail, Rob contacted us with a status update before we even had the chance to call him. Rob was first to call and anticipated our questions before we even asked. It made things move along smoother than we could have expected. ”

“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!”

“One needs no other agent in Washington than Rob Carter. He knocks it out of the park (and into the next state!). He's everything you'd want from your agent: Smart, friendly, rich with knowledge, a skilled strategist, a resource for this and that, and a teacher-coach. Don't even look at anyone else. Get Rob Carter on your team. You'll be as delighted as I am.”

“Rob Carter has integrity. He was a trusted advisor throughout our home buying process and never was pushy. He was looking for the best fit for us, not a commission: there were multiple homes he told us not to buy because of the high price point and/or quality. Put simply, Rob is one of the few that you can trust and has your best interest in mind. My wife and I love our home that we bought!”

“As first-time home buyers, we could not have asked for a more patient, knowledgable, and professional agent. Rob Carter was referred to us by a work colleague who has enlisted his services on two home buying occasions and heartily recommended him. Our initial telephone consultation with Rob helped us define our priorities in our home search, and allowed him to understand our needs and preferences. Rob’s expertise was readily apparent when we viewed homes: he immediately examined the “bones” of the house, alerting us to possible problem areas and pointing out both strengths and weaknesses of a home, especially as related to potential resale down the road. When the time came for a bid and subsequent negotiations, Rob was a pro, helping us to reach a very favorable settlement. He was firmly in our corner. A military-friendly agent, Rob’s knowledge of the VA home loan process, as well as tax advantages, was a huge plus. We wholeheartedly recommend Rob, and he will be our first call when the time comes for us to either buy or sell again.”

“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 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.”

“I have used Rob Carter for several real estate transactions. I have always been impressed and will continue to use him in the future. I also wholeheartedly recommend him to others. He is very professional and his follow up is amazing. He kept on top of us to make sure that we were doing everything that we needed to in order to hit our deadlines. We had three offers, all well above asking within a week of listing. That to me is excellent work. There are many homes in our area that are sitting on the market, and I feel that Rob's suggestions for pricing and staging were critical to our success. Overall I am EXTREMELY satisfied. Rob exceeded my expectations for the sale of my home. It was faster and for more money than I expected. He was right on in his pricing and marketing strategy.”

“We totally loved working with Rob. It seemed like he was buying the home for himself, that's how meticulous he was throughout the process . For a new construction home he guided us and organized everything that we possibly could have needed and made sure we were getting the best house for us. He was the point person on everything and we totally were able to trust him to take us through the entire process. When we had concerns on home issues he would follow up proactively with the builders and other parties. He noticed things that we would never would have seen , which really made us feel confident during the walk-through. He was very easy to talk to and worked around our calendar and never rushed us in any way for any property that we saw. Overall I feel like Rob is a friend and he definitely has an open invite to our house any time! ”

“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. ”

“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.”
Brian, Washington DC (Buyer)

“Rob Carter was a pleasure to work with as first-time homebuyers. He was very knowledgeable and patient, and offered solid recommendations for all the associated home buying services. He was also very prudent from the start, making sure we were financially ready to the point of waiting almost a year from initial contact while we improved our financial position. Rob never pushed the limit of our budget, pieced together a very competitive offer, and helped us through a very smooth closing process. Can't say enough good about him!”
Mark B, Springfield (Buyer)

“Rob Carter and his team (Andrea) were very responsive to our questions and needs. Their knowledge of the DC metro area is very thorough and deep. Rob puts in a lot of time and effort to meet his customers' goals. He urged us to be patient and see a lot of places to get an idea of what exactly we wanted. When we decided to put in an offer in he made it as strong as possible and on our first attempt we succeeded. I know our home buying process was made much easier by going with Rob Carter and we couldn't be happier with the home we found! ”
Steve Becker, Silver Spring, MD (Buyer)
7/25/2016
“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! ”
Emily Citkowski, Washington, DC (Seller)

“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”

“I have now dealt with Rob Carter twice -- selling my home and buying another a year later. He is superb! I would not think of using another agent. He is rigorous, informed, and provides sound advice. He is not pushy but asks the right questions and does the research that makes every house reviewed or visited a worthwhile experience. Prompt responses and always there for you. We were delighted to work with him! We would recommend him very highly. Thanks. ”
