Team reviews

We are happy we chose to work with the Belt Team to buy our first house. We worked with Tom Reilly, with Beth helping as well, and Patty behind the scenes. Given that we were first time home-buyers, and that we are also detail-oriented, we had many many questions. Tom was very patient and responsive in answering our questions. We felt very comfortable having Tom and Beth on our side, in their knowledge of process, neighborhoods, and market conditions. Tom also took good steps to understand what we were looking for in a home, as well as getting to know us so he could offer personalized service. In cases where Tom had a schedule conflict and couldn't show us a home, Beth stepped in seamlessly. Even though we spent time doing research on the process, it is still daunting your first time, and the team did a great job getting us through it. Once we were under contract, Patty made sure we stayed on schedule. When making decisions like those in the homebuying process, it's important to work with somebody who has your interests in mind. With Tom, we always felt that was the case.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $600K in Falls Church, VA.
Primary point of contact: Tom Reilly

Tom Reilly and his colleagues at the Belt Team are great! They helped my husband and I buy our first home in Falls Church. We found him through the Apple Federal Credit Union and the Home Advantage Program which they work extremely well with. After more than one hiccup beyond our control (outbid on two houses, buying a house in the winter, and having to get two home assessments) Tom kept our spirits up, educated us, worked creatively and smartly, and got us a perfect house for the perfect price. We have been here for 4 months and love it.

Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $725K in Vienna, VA.

This past weekend we moved into our townhouse and wanted to take this opportunity to thank your team of Beth Dadisman & Tom Reilly, for the exceptional service and experience we had working with them in finding our new home in Vienna, VA. When we decided to move to this area, my wife registered with a few of the local realtors. Beth was one of the few who called quickly. A few never called back which was disheartening at first. Some who did call wanted to know if we were hoping to purchase sooner than later. We even had some referrals but they soon stopped following up since we weren’t quite ready to make a purchase. Beth persisted but with no pressure. She took time to understand our needs and then once we were ready to start looking, we met Tom. Both of them spent a good amount of time understanding what we were looking for and also gave us a detailed description of the market and the various areas which met our criteria: proximity to the metro, townhouse versus a single family home, a good neighborhood for our kids. They were also kind enough to introduce us to local lenders for our mortgage needs. Over the fall, we saw a few houses and the process began. Beth was cognizant of our needs and we fine-tuned our search as we went along. They always helped answer our questions and provided timely information. Winter was slow but your team kept in touch and in early spring, we found a house that we liked and that’s when Tom took over and helped negotiate the terms and take care of all the paperwork and there was plenty of it. Finally, we closed and both Beth and Tom were there in support. We also wanted to send a shout out to Patty Schuebel for providing a lot of the information we needed for closing. Not once did we feel pressurized to decide on a house and were consistently supported by both, Beth & Tom. They provided us the help and information we needed to make the purchase and waited until we found something that we liked and wanted. Thank you Beth & Tom for your help in helping us find a home and we look forward to working with you and the Belt Team again in the future.

Sold a home in 2015 in Franklin, Vienna, VA 22180.

I listed my house with Terry Belt and the sale went extremely smoothly. Terry was very knowledgeable about the local market, very easy to deal with, communicated well, and my house sold in 12 days for very close to what he thought it would. I would not hesitate to use him again if I was selling or buying another house in this area.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2015 for approximately $350K in Alexandria, VA.

As first time buyers we really appreciated that Tom Reilly respected all of our questions, no matter how elementary. If he didn't have the answer, he got it for us, ASAP. We worked with another agent earlier in our home search, and Tom was much more attentive and helpful!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 in Vienna, VA.
Primary point of contact: Kevin Kleifges

Kevin Kleifges and his team did a great job selling our home. Kevin was always available on his mobile and would guide us through strategic, transactional, and unexpected situations with humility and calmness. The support team that works with you out of the office was excellent, and the photos and marketing materials were first class. This team rules Vienna.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $675K in Vienna, VA.

After interviewing several real estate agents in the area we elected to go with Tom and Beth of the Belt Team. While all of the agents we interviewed came highly recommended we felt that Tom had the best knowledge of the area and that the larger Belt Team would have more resources to provide us valuable insights in a competitive market. Tom and Beth took the time to understand our housing needs and then worked with us to identify neighborhoods in the area that fit those needs. They were proactive in identifying and previewing properties for us and were very responsive to our calls and emails throughout the entire process. They ultimately helped us to close on a house before it officially listed, thus avoiding a potential multiple offer situation. Tom artfully negotiated with the seller's agent and determined what offer would be mutually agreeable. Overall, they made a stressful process easy and straightforward. We love that we were able to find a house in our ideal neighborhood, and we highly recommend The Belt Team.

Sold a home in 2015 in Wolf Trap, Vienna, VA 22182.
Primary point of contact: Kevin Kleifges

The Belt team, with Kevin Kleifges guiding the sale of my home could not have been more satisfying. His knowledge and personal experience of the local community were valuable in marketing the property. He explained every detail in the process, arranged for staging, inspections, and conducting an open house presentation. There were no surprises. Most importantly, the house was sold in a very few days at the agreed sale price. Thanks Belt Team for a job well done.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $425K in Springfield, VA.
Primary point of contact: Martin Bristow

We just bought our first home, and needless to say the prospect was both exciting and terrifying. My husband was initially reluctant to hire a realtor, but we decided we had no choice but to take the plunge given our complete and total lack of knowledge. We asked friends for recommendations and were directed to the Belt Team. Following that advice was the best choice we could have made! Martin, our agent, was everything we could have asked for in an agent: knowledgeable, friendly, accessible, and always looking out for our interests.

One of our biggest fears was having a “pushy” agent that would pressure us into buying a home we didn’t really like. Martin never once pressured us into a purchase, and in several cases actually recommended against making a purchase based on concerns over the resale value. He also was fantastic at letting the purchase be our decision – he never told us what we “should” want, and focused instead on providing us with information to facilitate our ultimate decision.

Also, we would have been completely lost without the Belt Team guiding us through the contract and closing process. Martin went through the contract and explained everything before we sent in our offer, even though it was 10 PM on a Saturday. Afterward, both he and Patty were amazing at making sure none of the many, many steps fell through the cracks. From the mortgage to the termite inspection, they made sure everything was taken care of in a timely manner.

Overall, our experience could not have been more positive. We would recommend Martin in a heartbeat!
