“Rob Carter is exactly what we wanted in an agent: listened and understood what we were looking for, helped us understand the price points and availability of homes that matched our criteria, showed us homes that matched our criteria, and ultimately helped us put together a winning bid that we were comfortable with. Multiple times he demonstrated that he prioritized our long-term satisfaction by recommending we not settle for homes we were less enthusiastic about and not over-pay even on homes we liked. That was very impressive and created a great deal of trust.”

“Rob Carter helped me purchase my home 10 years ago. It was a good experience and I was pleased to work with him again for the sale of the property. Rob and his team were great - they took care of all of the little details so I didn’t have to focus on them myself.
Rob is a pleasure to work with. He’s very friendly, knowledgeable, and accessible. He’s also very honest and direct in his views, which makes it easy to trust that he is giving you solid and practical advice.
Overall, we closed on the sale of the home 33 days after we listed the property. I couldn’t have asked for quicker or better service from a real estate broker. I’d highly recommend Rob and his team to anyone who is buying or selling a home. ”
Diane McDoniel, Springfield, VA (Seller)
“Great experience with Rob. We strongly recommend him. ”
Robert Dolan Jr (Seller)
“Rob was extremely professional and efficient ! We were from out of town and needed to feel very confident in the realtor because we had no understanding of the area. We were completely confident in the advice given to us by Rob.
When rob was not available Andrea was always there to fill in. She held the same high standards as rob did in conducting herself .
I would recommend and have recommended rob to other people who have shown interest in purchasing in DC.
Rob conducted himself through out the year long process with diligence and professionalism .”
Elisa King, Knoxville Tennessee (Buyer)
“Rob was referred to us through a co-worker from my wife's workplace. We were purchasing our first home and quite honestly had no idea how to approach it. We needed someone who was honest, professional, knowledgeable and was willing to hold our hands through the entire process. It's challenging to put in writing how much Rob exceeded our expectations in every possible way.
Right from the get go, he was responsive - he returns calls and emails very quickly. If he doesn't have the information you're looking for handy, he follows up and finds answers.
He's honest - he puts the client before himself. Example: In a tough period where we were really questioning our ability to afford a home, Rob challenged us and suggested maybe we needed to continue renting. At that point I knew he had no skin in the game - he put more value on our interests than he did in closing commission with us as his clients.
Another example: In a tough situation where we wanted a property and had the opportunity to grab it if we were willing to bring a higher offer to the table, Rob suggested we withdraw as he felt the property wasn't worth the value. Again - no skin in the game. We could have finished up right then and there but he had our best interests in mind.
He's a great negotiator and great to work with - in communications with other agents during our inquiries of properties, I noticed how they repeatedly said they would love the chance to work with him. He writes great contracts and is super detail-oriented - he always seems one step ahead of the game.
I've documented that Rob is an awesome realtor, but what really makes him special is that he's a great person. I honestly have to say our lives are better for having the chance to get to know Rob and working with him to purchase our home. We closed at the end of April, and I have to admit as much as I did not like searching for homes, I'll miss the chance of getting to go house hunting with him.

“Rob is an excellent realtor. I would recommend him (and have) to friends and family. ”
Jackie M. (Seller)
“Based on a previous purchase, we had the utmost confidence in Rob Carter and his abilities. There was no doubt that we would use him again.
Rob excels at being timely, helpful and creative with solutions. Something odd always comes up with the sale of any house, it's great to have Rob in your corner. He knows what to do and makes helpful and well reasoned suggestions. He keeps things calm when your anxiety levels are high and gives your confidence so that you make better decisions.
Rob's knowledge of the area, inventory (current and prior sales), market trends, and how buyers and sellers will view the transactions was invaluable to me.
I can't recommend Rob highly enough. ”
Devon Hill, Washington, DC (Seller)
“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)
“When we met with Rob to interview him, it was clear he had deep expertise in both the geographic areas in which we were searching, and also with the multiple types of properties we were considering. Besides being professional and friendly, he was able to make us feel confident that he knows how best to represent our interests. Unlike other agents, he did not push to have us sign anything. His counsel turned out to be invaluable in so many ways. As far as we are concerned, we would never use anyone else in DC!
In every aspect of our transaction, Rob was a consummate, knowledgeable professional (and nice to boot!). He is the best there is.
We had the ultimate customer-service experience. If there was a time convenient to us that did not work for Rob (which was rare), he made sure Andrea was there for us. As she was always willing to step in when Rob wasn't available, she helped make the entire experience seamless to us.”
Beth-ann & Rick Kirby (Buyer)
“It is always a pleasure to work with Rob Carter, and this was my 6th transaction with him - I would not use anyone else. He is always prepared and responsive, stays on top of all the moving parts of each sale, and is immediately knowledgeable about the market and ready with good recommendations based on my situation and needs. Everyone in his office is great to work with also. I have been able to accomplish every purchase or sale with a minimum of time and effort, and I have been completely happy with the outcome every time - which has always turned out to be exactly as he explained at the start of the process. I've now done sales and purchases in the suburbs and in DC proper, and I would recommend Rob to anyone with real estate needs in DC/MD/VA; he will give you good and realistic advice, and help you find exactly what you are looking for quickly and easily.”
Bianca Benincasa, Washington DC (Buyer)
“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.”
Devon Hill (Buyer)
“Choosing Rob Carter as my real estate agent was the best decision I could have made. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the local market and did everything he could to make the sale of my home as easy as possible. If you’re considering buying or selling a property in the Washington, DC area, I highly recommend you give Rob Carter a call. You won’t be disappointed!
Neil A. - Silver Spring, MD (Seller)
“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.”
EB Silver Spring, MD (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”
Larry Thompson Canton,GA (Seller)
“Rob Carter was great to work with through the process of finding and purchasing my first condo. He's incredibly knowledgeable of the DC real estate market. Additionally, Rob's professionalism is above and beyond. Rob was patient and objective as I waded through the process over several months. I found the perfect place, and am thrilled with my experience.”
Amanda, 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 was "on the money" with sales price, timeframe and advice.”
Steve and Lynne (Seller)
“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!
Aakash Trivedi , Ashburn VA (Buyer)
“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)
“Simply put, I would absolutely and without hesitation recommend Rob Carter to any family member, friend or colleague looking to buy or sell a home. ”
Jeffrey and Carol (Oakton) (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. ”
Heather Dieguez (Seller)
“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.”
Beth Litton, Washington D.C. (Buyer)
“It was great to work with Rob. He answered all my questions quickly and clearly. Rob was able to find me a great place quickly and create a great offer strategy for the property. Rob was very detail oriented in all aspects of the housing search and inspection and made sure that I was up to speed on each part of the purchase process.”
