Testimonials

“Rob Carter is the best! I cannot recommend him highly enough. He is always accessible and a tireless advocate for his clients' interests.”
Fran Faircloth, Washington, DC (Buyer)
1/4/2018
“Without fail, Rob contacted us with a status update before we even had the chance to call him. Rob was first to call and anticipated our questions before we even asked. It made things move along smoother than we could have expected. ”
Jeremy and Lauren Mandell, Bethesda, MD (Seller)
3/28/2016
“Rob Carter has integrity. He was a trusted advisor throughout our home buying process and never was pushy. He was looking for the best fit for us, not a commission: there were multiple homes he told us not to buy because of the high price point and/or quality. Put simply, Rob is one of the few that you can trust and has your best interest in mind. My wife and I love our home that we bought!”
Mark P (Buyer)

“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. ”
Stephen Ndegwa, Springfield VA (Buyer)

“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)
12/17/2017
“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)
5/26/2015
“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)
4/13/2018
“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)

“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)

“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)

“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!”
Alex, Washington, DC (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)
2/22/2017
“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! ”
Adrianne Goldsmith Romero, Washington, D.C. (Seller)
10/13/2016
“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)

“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 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)

“TOP NOTCH!”
Brian Case Washington DC (Buyer)
10/5/2016
“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. ”
Luke, Washington DC (Buyer)
12/27/2017
“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)
5/12/2017
“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)
9/6/2017
“Rob was instrumental in the quick sale of our home. We are remote sellers living out of the area and Rob was great in handling all aspects from getting the home ready to sell to closing date. He took care of all the details, saving us time and money travelling back to VA. He has great attention to detail in getting your home ready for the market. Rob also answered all our questions, most of the time within minutes, and followed up with contractors, inspectors, agents and title companies for us. The end result was a quick sale with multiple offers. We highly recommend Rob.”
Cyndi, Illinois (sale in Springfield, VA) (Seller)
8/7/2017
“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.”
