“Shawn's experience and professionalism was very important to me. He was so patient and understanding about our personal situation. We looked at many houses over a six month period but when the right one came along he and his recommended associates moved us through the buying process quickly and easily.
Shawn has become a good friend to us during this process. He was available to help every time we called, usually on short notice.
Extremely professional and cared about us.
Can't thank Shawn enough for hanging in there with us.”
Danette and Randy, Reston VA (Buyer)
“Shawn Battle really knows how to market and make a sale happen fast! We had a contract before our open house. He also helped us coordinate buying our new pace. I would strongly recommend him to anyone buying or selling on the orange line!”
Laura Benner, Arlington, VA (Buyer)
“I have worked with Shawn twice, once as a buyer and once as a seller. Both yielded amazing results and I can't recommend him enough. He went above and beyond. I had to sell from out of town and Shawn took care of everything. It was flawless.”
Paul M. (Seller)
“Shawn was great. I couldn't have asked for more. I'd certainly use him in the future,”
Stephen Verrecchia, Washington, DC (Seller)

Shannon Croom Arlington, VA (Seller)
“Shawn was very understanding of my request and allowed me to take the reigns on my home buying experience. I never felt pressure to look at, or purchase anything if I didn't feel comfortable with it. He was very patient with my needs, and my request and got back to my in a timely matter. I don't think I would have had as enjoyable of an experience if Shawn was not my realator”
Lauren Moore (Buyer)
“My husband and I had been considering 3 different agents, when we met Shawn at an Open House in our neighborhood. We invited him to view our home and introduce us to a marketing strategy.
Shawn was "professional" and expedient. He presented his strategy in a nicely planned computer presentation. We were impressed with his technological capabilities and plans to monitor for internet queries. ”
R. Fiedler, Falls Church VA (Seller)
“We talked with several Realtors before we met with Shawn Battle. He was the first person we spoke to that showed optimism about finding a place that matched our criteria. It wasn't long before we felt very comfortable with Shawn, and very confident that he was the right person to have working for us.
Shawn took us around to about a dozen locations, and walked us through the houses and was very open with us about what we could expect with these houses. Once we found the house we loved, Shawn moved extremely quick to get our offer to the sellers. He was able to negotiate a lower price, as well as getting a portion of our closing costs covered by the seller. During the process Shawn was always available by phone, email, or text message to update us on anything or to answer any questions.
I would absolutely recommend Shawn to anyone who is buying a home. He is very knowledgeable, professional, timely, and responsive. ”
John, Arlington (Buyer)
“Shawn Battle's knowledge of Arlington condos was critical in our selection of a new home when downsizing. We have never lived in a condo before and relied on him to point out considerations that we would not have thought of. Shawn was extremely accessible when we had questions or wanted to view units for sale. He was also patient with our quirks and confusions. Overall, it was as painless as a real estate transaction can be!”
V. Farris, Arlington VA (Buyer)
“Shawn was very professional and impressed us with his knowledge of the market. We always heard back from him almost immediately by phone, text or in person. The staff Shawn brought in to shoot our condo photos was also very friendly and professional. The color brochure they created was outstanding
Our overall experience with Shawn and Century 21 was first class! We strongly recommend Shawn and his team.”
Douglas and Christine Stewart: Grantham, NH (Seller)
“We interviewed two other brokers to get a good sense of who would be the right fit for us. After the first meeting it was clear that Shawn was the best choice. He had a far superior understanding of the local market and was able to identify what I think was the best listing price. It was clear from the first meeting that Shawn is extremely organized and very well prepared. His presentation, which was far superior to the material prepared by the other agents, made clear that he would/could do everything possible to sell our condo for the price we were seeking. It was also clear from the first meeting that he was going to be very easy to work with. He wasn't in the least bit pushy and let his presentation speak for itself. It was clear what we were going to get from the commission, and my wife and I agree that Shawn was worth every penny.
In every way Shawn was an amazing agent. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to friends/colleagues looking to buy or sell property. To begin with, Shawn demonstrated an understanding of the market trends as a whole and local nuances (he has detailed knowledge of presumably every condo building on the Orange Line) that was far beyond that of other real estate agents we interviewed. This knowledge, combined with his attention to detail, resulted in our being able to sell our condo within two weeks of it being on the market.
Shawn treated us like we were his only clients even though we knew this wasn't the case. He places a lot of importance on the open house, which is exactly what we wanted. Notably, we were looking for a new house while trying to sell ours, and I'm extremely impressed with the amount of time Shawn spent on both. He showed us dozens of properties and offered sound advice on and pros/cons of each. Before we found the house we ended up buying, Shawn worked with us to put a bid in on two properties. We, unfortunately, were outbid, but Shawn's advice and guidance through the process was extremely useful.
We couldn't be happier with the place we ultimately bought, and Shawn was able to negotiate a price below listing. When a couple of unforeseen last minute issues arose with the seller, I felt confident knowing we had Shawn as our representative. I expect we wouldn't have had such a good outcome with a different agent. Shawn's expertise, accessibility, and good nature make him well worth the commission.
Before working with Shawn, we hadn't had the experience of selling and buying a house at the same time. I expect anyone in this situation will have a lot of issues about which to worry, but I also expect my wife and I worried more than most. More to the point, I doubt we would be considered low maintenance clients. Despite our near constant concerns and ceaseless questions, Shawn was always accessible and extremely professional. I'm impressed with how much of his time he would devote to us.
Both Shawn and Matt are genuinely pleasant people. That goes a long way toward being a good agent since the agent and clients spend so much time together. However, they have the added quality of being very professional. It's a little thing, but I would be remiss if I didn't point out the fact that Shawn and Matt would wear a suit every single time we met them. No matter how short the meeting, no matter what day of the week, no matter the weather, they always wore suits. If not for a chance encounter with Matt in the grocery store I would question whether they owned clothes other than suits.
I feel confident saying that Shawn would treat any client as if they were his own. We always felt that Shawn had our best interests in mind and had the skills to achieve the best for us. ”

Dave Saunders (Buyer)
“Shawn is outstanding! I put him in the difficult position of first seeing the property a couple of weeks before I transferred overseas, then asked him to handle everything from prepping the property through to closing for me. I found him always accessible, and flexible in dealing with communications overseas. He's the perfect choice for military, Foreign Service or others who are transferring out of the area before/during a sale!!!”
Don Heflin, Cabo Verde (Seller)

“Shawn provided an excellent experience in the purchase of our new condo. He is knowledgeable, polite, patient and understanding. I would recommend Shawn to anyone who is interested in purchasing a house or a condo in the Virginia area”
Adriana Daulong. Arlington.Va (Buyer)
“I cannot overstate how happy my wife and I were with Shawn's service. We were out-of-town buyers, which presents a pile of complications and anxieties not present in most transactions. Not only was Shawn attentive to these complications, he went absolutely and literally out of his way to make sure we were satisfied. Yes, Shawn's technical and local knowledge are excellent, and he delivered his services in a friendly, professional, and fully competent manner. But there is more to agency than mere competence. Shawn understood who we are and what we needed, and delivered that.
Our recommendation is unconditional. ”
Wayne Fishman, Easton, Pa. (Buyer)
“Shawn was the consummate professional! He was there with us every step of the process. Amazingly communicative, professional, and polite, we sincerely valued his knowledge of the market and came to trust him implicitly. We would recommend Shawn to absolutely anyone.”
