Testimonials

“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 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)

“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.”

“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 extremely professional and efficient ! We were from out of town and needed to feel very confident in the realtor because we had no understanding of the area. We were completely confident in the advice given to us by Rob. When rob was not available Andrea was always there to fill in. She held the same high standards as rob did in conducting herself . I would recommend and have recommended rob to other people who have shown interest in purchasing in DC. Rob conducted himself through out the year long process with diligence and professionalism .”

“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! ”

“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 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!”
Mark B, Springfield (Buyer)

“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!”

“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.”

“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 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)

“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)

“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 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. ”

“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 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”

“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'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.”
