Testimonials

“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! ”

“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.”

“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 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 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 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 helped me purchase my home 10 years ago. It was a good experience and I was pleased to work with him again for the sale of the property. Rob and his team were great - they took care of all of the little details so I didn’t have to focus on them myself. Rob is a pleasure to work with. He’s very friendly, knowledgeable, and accessible. He’s also very honest and direct in his views, which makes it easy to trust that he is giving you solid and practical advice. Overall, we closed on the sale of the home 33 days after we listed the property. I couldn’t have asked for quicker or better service from a real estate broker. I’d highly recommend Rob and his team to anyone who is buying or selling a home. ”

“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 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 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 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 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. ”
Sara Gilmer, Washington, D.C. (Buyer)

“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 .”
Elisa King, Knoxville Tennessee (Buyer)

“Rob is a terrific agent. If you are interviewing agents for potential representation, you must add him to your list. He's a tireless worker who responds to client inquiries in a very timely manner. The information he provides is detailed and informative. Further, Rob has his client's interests in mind when closing a deal. He's a strong negotiator and writes terrific contracts. Finally, when selling a home, Rob clearly understands the return on repairs and improvements. He provides a no-nonsense assessment of what needs to be done to sell a home. Again, if you are in the market for an agent, interview Rob.”
BG, Arlington VA (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.”

“Rob Carter was fantastic throughout the process. He was knowledgeable, attentive and helpful. We had several unique things that came up, including the listing agent selling our house to another buyer while we were under contract! Rob handled everything perfectly and always made sure we understood the situation. Professional, knowledgeable and really great to work with. Would highly recommend .”

“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)

“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!”
Rebecca, Virginia (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 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. ”
