Team reviews

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

We worked with Kevin Kleifges to sell our home. Kevin was very personable and responsive to every question we had. We always knew we would get an answer very quickly! He is extremely knowledgeable about real estate in the Northern Virginia area. Our home sold quickly and for the price we wanted.

Bought a home in 2015 in Chesterbrook Estates, Mc Lean, VA 22101.
Primary point of contact: Tom Reilly

Tom Reilly was awesome – I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking for a buyer’s agent! Everything was thoroughly explained as we went through the buying process. If an e-mail or cell phone call was sent, it was answered immediately. He truly provides a valuable service and most definitely makes the daunting process of home buying much easier.

Sold a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $400K in Alexandria Wrest, Alexandria, VA.
Primary point of contact: Kevin Kleifges

I bought my first home with Kevin and his team several years ago and now have sold my first home with them as well. I had a great experience working with them and highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Kevin and Patty produced quick results and made me comfortable through the whole process. They were very knowledgeable and helpful the entire time. All in all, it was a very positive experience for me.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $675K in Landmark-Van Dom, Alexandria, VA.

Working with the Belt Team was a pro experience from the very beginning. My wife and I were in the market for a new home, and our initial consultation meeting was tailored just for us. Tom was our primary realtor and instantly we felt in good hands. His friendly demeanor took the stress out of many situations and decisions. He was available to take us through homes at a moment's notice any day of the week, and he provided great insight into the Northern Virginia area and homes themselves. Tom went the extra mile throughout the entire process to make sure we were happy. Working with him was so efficient, we had an accepted offer in about a week! We didn't hesitate to choose the Belt Team to help sell our condominium a month later.

Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $675K in South Lakes Dr - Soapstone Dr, Reston, VA.

Terry and his team exceeded our expectations on every level. They made what is typically a very stressful process very smooth and painless. The Belt Team truly provides one stop shopping from listing to staging and photography; to buying and moving and even including excellent title company and lender referrals! We wouldn't change a thing and are grateful for their outstanding customer service and responsiveness.

Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $450K in South Lakes Dr - Soapstone Dr, Reston, VA.

Kevin Kleifges, Patty Schuebel, and the rest of the Belt team were outstanding when we sold our Reston house in October 2014. We were nervous about the market, but Kevin, our listing agent, was confident about the house. It sold in a few days at the price we wanted, and closing was much faster than we'd expected.

Kevin recommended Victoria Stratman to do the staging, and she did a great job. She really saw the beauty and strengths of the house and emphasized them.

The team put together a great brochure and were attentive and responsive throughout a very, very smooth process from listing to closing. They basically walked us through each step (we needed it) and gave us great advice on finishing touches, i.e., what was important. They made what can be an unnerving experience a comfortable and positive one. We recommend them very, very highly to anyone getting ready to sell a house.
