Brian Case Washington DC (Buyer)
“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.”

“Great experience with Rob. We strongly recommend him. ”

“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. ”

“I was very happy with Rob's work and professionalism selling my condo. His knowledge of market and neighborhood allowed him to price effectively and select the best offer, leading to a very successful outcome. He was responsive and has a good team. Recommend.”
Brendan Selby, DC (Seller)
“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.”
Brian, Dupont Circle, Washington, DC (Seller)
“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 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)
“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)
“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)
“Rob went above and beyond in helping us purchase our home. He had our best interests at heart and was key in ensuring the builder did not take advantage of or "nickel and dime" us. He expertly negotiated multiple items for us that we would not have been aware of to bring up or been able to complete by ourselves. Our situation with the builder seemed more complicated than it should have been and I firmly believe that other realtors would not have been able to navigate us through the stressful process like Rob. On top of that, he did it with patience and grace. We are extremely thankful for the help Rob provided for us and we highly recommend him. You cannot beat the quality and service that Rob provides.”
Rebecca, Virginia (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 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)
“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)
“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. ”
Holly & Michael, Takoma Park, 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 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 is an excellent realtor. I would recommend him (and have) to friends and family. ”
Jackie M. (Seller)
“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!”
Bianca Benincasa, Silver Spring (Seller)
“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!”
Linda B, Santa Monica, CA (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.”
Ed&Rainy Sponable, Leesburg, VA (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)
“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.
Soren Messner-Zidell (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. ”
Zach Elder, Washington DC (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.”
