Ratings & Reviews

We worked with Rob to both sell our condo in the city and purchase a new build in the suburbs of Virginia. He is excellent. He is always on top of things, following up with the assorted cast of characters (other realtors, title company, our property manager, builders, etc.) and making sure our interests are always being represented. He is incredibly responsive - even during off-hours - and patient. He explains the process and the options clearly and directly. Rob's strategy and negotiating skills led to a sale above asking price and his relationships and expertise have smoothed the way on our new build purchase. We highly recommend him!

Bought a Townhouse home in 2015 for approximately $500K in Penrose, Arlington, VA.

We cannot say enough great things about Rob. He is exceptionally professional. He was able to accurately predict what was over- or under-priced and was able to quickly spot potential issues during walk-throughs. Rob took the time to truly understand our preferences and timeline, he answered our questions clearly, and he was available when we needed his help. When it came to actually bidding on a home, Rob was invaluable. We had two homes that we were torn between. Rob knew exactly how to handle the other agents and knew exactly how we should bid. Rob was able to help us get a great deal on our home and we absolutely love it! Further, Rob helped us walk through the month of paperwork and bargaining to finish the deal. Sufficed to say, Rob is a fantastic negotiator too! We will be recommending Rob to all of our friends.

Sold a Townhouse home in 2015 for approximately $825K in Bloomingdale, Washington, DC.

My husband and I worked with Rob to sell a house and really enjoyed working with him. Rob is extremely responsiveness, creative, and attentive to details. He has excellent knowledge of the area and provides great guidance and counsel. Rob is also persistent and a real advocate for his clients. We would highly recommend working with Rob and really don't think we could have sold our place without his expert leadership.

Showed home in 2014 in Columbia Heights, Washington, DC 20001.

I have worked with Rob to purchase my first home for a year and a half and he has always been respectful and responsive, as well as extremely knowledgeable about the various things I should take into consideration and the process as a whole. I would absolutely recommend Rob and I have to many friends.

Sold a Condo home in 2015 in Adams Morgan, Washington, DC.

Rob helped us find our first home in DC in 2009, 6 years later when we started to plan our move to a new city, we went right to him for the sale. He's a pleasure to work with, extremely knowledgeable and helpful. We had a tricky sale and were grateful Rob was with us. I can't recommend him enough!

Bought a Condo home in 2015 in Dupont Circle, Washington, DC.

What can I say more then I am the proud owner of a condo in DC, only thanks to Rob. Despite less then swift experience with the bank (my own fault, Rob did warn me.. and man was he right), Rob in his utmost professionalism dealt with all of the various and intricate stakeholders in a very communicative and structured manner. I was able to get the condo with a very short turnaround, to a great price with beneficial contingencies. Cannot say more then bravo - and that I will use him again when I upgrade and/or sell !

Sold a Townhouse home in 2015 for approximately $550K in Columbia Heights, Washington, DC.

I can't recommend Rob enough. Rob helped us find our first house. Eight years latter he helped us sell that house and buy a new one as well. Buying and selling in a tight market like D.C. is a very stressful process - but Rob made it as smooth as possible. He helped us sell our house in less than a week. And for substantially more than the original asking price. He also helped us get our new home. It was great home in a hot location so we faced a lot of competition. But he helped us craft the best offer in a timely manner. He's extremely familiar with the D.C. market, possesses high attention to detail and process and is a tough but fair negotiator. Whether buying or selling, if you are looking for an agent who puts your interests first and who won't be satisfied until you're happy, Rob is your best choice.

Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $325K in Landmark-Van Dom, Alexandria, VA.

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.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $675K in Sterling, VA.

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. 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. 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. If you want a professional realtor who represents you and your property in a manner that draws people in, we would highly recommend Rob Carter. You will be a very happy client!

Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $400K in Reston, VA.

Rob was referred to us through a co-worker from my wife's workplace. We were purchasing our first home and quite honestly had no idea how to approach it. We needed someone who was honest, professional, knowledgeable and was willing to hold our hands through the entire process. It's challenging to put in writing how much Rob exceeded our expectations in every possible way. Right from the get go, he was responsive - he returns calls and emails very quickly. If he doesn't have the information you're looking for handy, he follows up and finds answers. He's honest - he puts the client before himself. Example: In a tough period where we were really questioning our ability to afford a home, Rob challenged us and suggested maybe we needed to continue renting. At that point I knew he had no skin in the game - he put more value on our interests than he did in closing commission with us as his clients. Another example: In a tough situation where we wanted a property and had the opportunity to grab it if we were willing to bring a higher offer to the table, Rob suggested we withdraw as he felt the property wasn't worth the value. Again - no skin in the game. We could have finished up right then and there but he had our best interests in mind. He's a great negotiator and great to work with - in communications with other agents during our inquiries of properties, I noticed how they repeatedly said they would love the chance to work with him. He writes great contracts and is super detail-oriented - he always seems one step ahead of the game. I've documented that Rob is an awesome realtor, but what really makes him special is that he's a great person. I honestly have to say our lives are better for having the chance to get to know Rob and working with him to purchase our home. We closed at the end of April, and I have to admit as much as I did not like searching for homes, I'll miss the chance of getting to go house hunting with him. Thanks Rob!
