Testimonials

“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. ”
Kyle S., Silver Spring (Buyer)

“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 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.”

“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)

“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.”
Alison L, Washington, DC (Seller)

“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)

“I was very happy with Rob's work and professionalism selling my condo. His knowledge of market and neighborhood allowed him to price effectively and select the best offer, leading to a very successful outcome. He was responsive and has a good team. Recommend.”

“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.”

“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 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. ”

“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)

“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. ”

“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)

“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 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 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. ”

“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)

“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)

“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! ”

“It is always a pleasure to work with Rob Carter, and this was my 6th transaction with him - I would not use anyone else. He is always prepared and responsive, stays on top of all the moving parts of each sale, and is immediately knowledgeable about the market and ready with good recommendations based on my situation and needs. Everyone in his office is great to work with also. I have been able to accomplish every purchase or sale with a minimum of time and effort, and I have been completely happy with the outcome every time - which has always turned out to be exactly as he explained at the start of the process. I've now done sales and purchases in the suburbs and in DC proper, and I would recommend Rob to anyone with real estate needs in DC/MD/VA; he will give you good and realistic advice, and help you find exactly what you are looking for quickly and easily.”
Bianca Benincasa, Washington DC (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. ”
Clair, Alexandria VA (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)

“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.”
