Testimonials

“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!”

“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.”

“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! ”

“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. ”

“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 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. ”

“Rob Carter and his team (Andrea Paro and Jonathan Eng) were amazing to work with. Rob's attention to detail was impeccable and he did an amazing job of negotiating the price and terms of our purchase under some challenging circumstances. He provided invaluable insight and was easy to access whenever we had a question. Andrea Paro and Jonathan Eng were also both delightful to work with: they were responsive, knowledgable, and friendly. We feel so fortunate to have worked with Rob Carter to find our new home. ”

“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 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.”

“Simply put, we would not have succeeded in purchasing this home without Rob Carter's knowledge of the kind of home we were looking for (in terms of price and condition), his initiative in following up on a cold call from the seller and getting into the property ASAP to confirm it suited our desires, and the speed with which he facilitated the transaction. All of these factors combined to enable a pre-market purchase. Had he not provided these services and had we not been afforded the opportunity to buy the property pre-market, I'm confident we would not have obtained the home as we would have been forced to compete with investor/builders with their more attractive all-cash offers. This is the second home we've bought with Rob and would recommend him without reservation. ”

“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 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!”

“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.”

“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.”

“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. ”

“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)

“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)

“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.”

“I found Rob through online research and read good reviews of him so I decided to give him a call. After one conversation I knew that Rob understood my needs and would be able to help me find the home I was looking for. I am extremely glad that I had the chance to work with Rob because it was a great experience and led to finding the right home. Rob's knowledge of the market was critical to helping me submit a fair offer and get the property I wanted under contract. His negotiation skills throughout the contract period saved me thousands of dollars. As a first time home buyer his ability to effectively explain to me each step of the process to purchase the home gave me the peace of mind I wanted. Rob was an absolute joy to work with. He was immediately responsive to the countless questions I had for him throughout the purchase process. He explained every step to me clearly. I was able to rely on his advice confidently knowing that it would lead to the best possible outcome. I could not have asked for a better person to work with and would recommend Rob to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.”
Jack Reilly, Washington DC (Buyer)

“Rob is absolutely amazing. The sale of my house went smoothly and quickly all because of him. He provided expert advice in staging, pricing, marketing, and many other things. He was also willing to answer all of my many questions patiently and almost immediately. On top of that, Rob also helped us with the purchase of our next home and he lined up the sale of this house with the closing of our new house perfectly. Rob was our advocate and we knew we could trust him to guide us in the right direction. We could not have survived this process without him! Thank you!”

“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)

“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. ”
