Testimonials

“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. ”

“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! ”

“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.”
Alison L, Washington, DC (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. ”

“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. ”

“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. ”
Jeremy and Lauren Mandell, Bethesda, MD (Seller)

“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 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)

“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!”

“Rob Carter is a wonderful realtor. He is professional, knowledgeable and his response time is extremely quick. His pricing strategy was spot on, and he knows the market incredibly well.

“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!”

“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! ”

“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. ”

“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. Thanks Rob!”

“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. ”

“Rob is a terrific agent. If you are interviewing agents for potential representation, you must add him to your list. He's a tireless worker who responds to client inquiries in a very timely manner. The information he provides is detailed and informative. Further, Rob has his client's interests in mind when closing a deal. He's a strong negotiator and writes terrific contracts. Finally, when selling a home, Rob clearly understands the return on repairs and improvements. He provides a no-nonsense assessment of what needs to be done to sell a home. Again, if you are in the market for an agent, interview Rob.”

“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. ”
