I had a very positive experience working with Beth and Tom from the Belt Team. They were both very professional and very helpful while I was searching for a home in northern virginia. The entire staff at Keller Williams was also helpful and great to work with. I would highly recommend them.
Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $425K in Oakton, VA.
I would highly recommend Terry. He recently sold our house in 9 days. He's very accessible and knowledgeable, and we really enjoyed working with him. Patty is also wonderful--very nice and quick to answer all of our questions, big or small.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $750K in Oakton, VA.
Terry and the Belt team worked closely with our corporate relocation team and sold our home within days of listing. The listing strategy was well thought out and resulted in us actually selling above asking price and at the top end of the range we identified as target value based on relevant local comparators. Terry and the team managed a complex set of contract coordination issues between our relocation services company and the buyer, and were very attentive throughout the process. Would not hesitate to recommend Terry and the Belt team for real estate services in the Oakton area.
Kevin and Patty were wonderful throughout the whole process. We appreciated Kevin's expertise, his straightforward manner, his accessibility, and his willingness to listen to our perspective as sellers. Patty was amazing behind the scenes, always answering any and all inquiries in a knowledgeable and timely fashion and making sure we were well-informed what to expect next in the process.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.025M in Bellevue Forest, Arlington, VA.
Primary point of contact: Tom Reilly
We had a very positive experience working with the Belt Team and in particular Tom Reilly. Tom really knows the Northern Virginia area and understands the market very well. Additionally, he is a very pleasant person, very affable and responsive. The Belt Team runs a tight ship and made what is usually a daunting and intimidating process very painless, and that is no small feat! We had to initiate our process from overseas and Tom was able to facilitate many steps for us. We would happily use their services again and highly recommend them to any buyer or seller.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $650K in Wiehle Ave - Reston Pky, Reston, VA.
My husband and I had a very positive experience with the Belt Team - specifically with Kevin Kleifges, our agent.
We were new to the area and did not have an agent to work with. We met numerous agents at open houses over the course of a couple of months until we met Kevin and felt that he was a great fit for us - professional, knowledgeable on the neighborhoods we were looking at and a good listener (not trying to push us into homes above our budget or not a good fit for us). He was patient and reliable throughout the entire process of finding our new home. Kevin was a pleasure to work with and I would definitely recommend him and the Belt Team.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Hunter, Reston, VA.
The Belt Team, with Gail Belt and Ann Page in the lead, and Patty Schuebel and many other outstanding folks on the Belt Team in the background, performed an absolutely difficult and herculean accomplishment in closing for us the sale of a corporate office suite asset at 1801 Robert Fulton Drive in Reston Virginia this past May.
Normally a property of this nature, during the real estate market at the time, might have taken much more that a year to conclude, we were told, but these marvelous ladies and their support associates accomplished the task in just over six months. The sale was part of an estate liquidation operation which had many complications. They were undaunted in their assignment.
I initially contacted Gail at Keller Williams because she had served as our family real estate expert for over 20 years, and at least six successful residential and commercial transactions, much to our great mutual benefit. For this commercial requirement, however, Gail teamed with Ann Page which certainly proved to be an extremely winning combination. The difficulty in closing on this Reston property can only be appreciated by experts. They made it happen after many long, late, and overtime hours when others probably could not have done so.
I cannot provide a stronger or more positive recommendation for these ladies than to propose that in my estimation they should be identified as the Magic Real Estate Team of the Year!
Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $450K in Lyon Park, Arlington, VA.
the listing was handled very well and Patty and the team made a great brochure. We were able to get advice on the 2 offers we received the first day and make a good move.
They also helped us with the paperwork for our unlisted purchase of a home.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $825K in Vienna, VA.
From the moment we began working with Kevin to the day we closed, he was amazingly dedicated, impressively knowledgeable and truly a pleasure to work with. He was also patient and adept at coaching us through our various thought processes, supportive of our viewpoints and delicately contributing his superior industry knowledge to the decision. We had some substantial challenges in getting the house in listing condition under extreme time pressure. He recommended resources and helped us work with those resources, which really saved the day several times. During the final stretch dealing with the buyer's proposal, he was instrumental in coming up with solutions to satisfy both parties. We sold the house quickly and for a price that we were very happy with. The Belt Team approach also was wonderful: we were fully supported when Kevin had out of town commitments and Patty was a great help with logistics.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $900K in Vienna, VA.
Terry Belt and his team were exceptional. From the first meeting, I recognized the expertise in knowing the area, pricing, comps, advice on what to do to get the most for our house, and true professionalism. Terry is highly knowledgeable and knows what he is doing. There is so much to do and it can be very overwhelming to the seller. Terry's team, particularly Patty, was on top of everything, keeping us informed, and moving us along in the process. On top of the fact that Terry sold our house before it even went on the market, he is a wonderful person who was a pleasure to work with.
