Testimonials

“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.”

“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”

“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.”

“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.”

“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 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. ”

“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!”

“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!”

“Rob Carter was fantastic from start to finish! He was professional, knowledgeable, thorough, organized, responsive, efficient, and patient, and he provided a "one-stop shopping" experience from our initial meeting to the closing itself. He has a wonderful team of experts ready to handle every need, from staging to marketing to open houses to negotiating to signing the contract. I recommend him highly and wouldn't hesitate to use Rob and his team again! ”

“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.”

“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)

“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 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)
12/22/2016
“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)

“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 huge asset in helping us make a competitive offer once we found a home we liked and in navigating the process after that point -- from negotiating with the seller to the closing process to the final walk-through. Those are not typically things you think about when starting your house hunt, but are just as important as finding the right home. Rob not only paid close attention to details throughout that entire process but offered us excellent counsel and advice every step of the way. ”
Melissa Mandato, Alexandria, VA (Buyer)

“I've worked with Rob Carter on two previous occasions, and always had a very positive experience. He is very responsive and enabled us to see all the properties we wanted to see, when we wanted to see them. I've always enjoyed working with Rob because he gives solid advice without making me feel like he's "selling" to me and I really value his experience in our local market. When it came to making an offer, he gave us advice to ensure our offer was well received and had the best chance of being accepted. I'm confident in saying we wouldn't have won the contract without him! ”
Dan Swain, Washington, DC (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. 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!”

“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!”
