“Rob Carter did a fantastic job for us. His recommendations on preparing the house for sale, the staging and sales materials were outstanding. As a result of his efforts, the house sold within a few days with multiple offers that exceeded the asking price. Things could not have gone smoother or faster. In addition, Rob was a pleasure to work with, was extremely responsive and involved, and showed great attention to detail. In short, we could not have been more pleased”
John Berg, Vienna (Seller)
“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)
“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 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)
“I can't imagine a real estate agent who is more reliable, competent, and responsive. Rob is the best!”
Justin Faircloth, Washington, DC (Seller)
“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. ”
Tim - Silver Spring, MD (Buyer)
“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.
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.
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.
Andrea Paro helped us on several occasions and she was a pleasure to work with.
Could not be happier. Everything went smooth and worked out better then we expected. Received 4 contract offers well over the asking price for the house. Sold in 4 days. What is there not to like.”

Brian Case Washington DC (Buyer)
“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)
“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)
“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)
“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)
“Rob Carter is excellent and highly efficient in guiding and helping me sell my property within a month. he is a highly sought-after realtor who has superb ability to negotiate and pinpoint the any underlying issue when it comes mitigating potential risks for not meeting a tight deadline. He understood my needs and was able to meet my needs through proactive communications with me throughout the sales cycle. I will definitely use his help for my next house buy/sell. ”
Susan Wright, Alexandria (Seller)
“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.”
Dana and Gordon Walker, Burke, Virginia (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)
“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.”
David Andrukonis, DC (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.”
Alex, Arlington (Buyer)
“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.”
Dan K. Silver Spring, MD (Buyer)
“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.”
James, NYC (Seller)
“Knew the market and exactly how to price for optimal result. Clearly well-experienced, kept us informed, and followed up on all our questions.”
Bruce E., Atlanta (Seller)
“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 Carter is the best! I cannot recommend him highly enough. He is always accessible and a tireless advocate for his clients' interests.”
Fran Faircloth, Washington, DC (Buyer)
“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. He helped me with all aspects of this sale, including making recommendations for staging services and handymen. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.”
Alison, Washington, DC (Seller)
“Rob Carter is extremely knowledgeable about the DC market and gave great analytic advice. Very professional and courteous, it was a pleasure to work with Rob.”
