What my clients are saying (50)

11/23/2017 - Helen Linton

Kevin Carter is a superb and seasoned real estate agent. He was my seller agent for my home in Fall 2017. His knowledge and experience was exceptional. I was very glad he was on my side of the table. He looks out for his clients and has a network of professional contractors. Kevin is awesome. He is an excellent advisor. He had a wide range of understanding the NoVA market, knows processes, is responsive, and is a great negotiator. Don't look any further, go with Kevin Carter.


11/08/2017 - stricker01

I would give Kevin 6 stars (or more). Crucially, he LISTENS, and used his amazing knowledge of local properties to show me only properties that really included the things I wanted. Saved me considerable time and effort. He was also extremely flexible and responsive, accommodating my crazy schedules to make sure sure I quickly saw the condos I wanted to see. And finally, his process expertise and negotiation skills sealed the deal. If he had NOT intervened with the bank when my pre-qualified-for-loan suddenly had "technical issues" AND negotiated with the bank and owner to get things back on track, i would NOT now be living in my beautiful new home. Kevin is awesome!

Kevin Carter is a supreme Realtor, far surpassing others in his field. My primary Virginia townhome sold within days after listing with Kevin Carter. From my initial contact through the final sale, Kevin was extremely professional and responsive, providing his knowledge and expertise to prepare and list my property quickly. His skills and advice resulted in multiple offers, and a successful quick closing.

Subsequently, I listed my Virginia investment townhome with Kevin after moving to Colorado. Kevin's task was more complicated as he was required to coordinate preparation and showings of the townhome with my Tenants. Once again, Kevin's responsiveness and effective communication skills proved unsurpassed, as my property sold within days after multiple offers. Kevin handled the entire process in my absence, from initial contact through effectively handling multiple Tenant issues, negotiating multiple offers and ultimately, the successful and timely closing of my property. Again, I commend Kevin Carter's Real Estate expertise, and recommend him without hesitation.

Kevin's experience and understanding of the business and the relationships he has built on trust, results in meaningful outcomes for his clients. I have recommended him as an agent to friends and family looking for an agent.


09/12/2017 - kmachadoa

Kevin was great. Provided honest and detailed feedback and always ensured we were protected during negotiations. We will definitely use him again when we next move. He made the process so much less stressful.


09/10/2017 - gmrfish

Kevin top notch, the best realtor you will ever deal with. We bought our first home with him, sold the same home and bought a new home with Kevin. He always is on top of any issues that arise and explains everything uouvmeed to know! I would not use any other person.


08/04/2017 - zuser20150606040456542

Kevin is very knowledgeable about the home buying process. I'd recommend him to first time home buyers. He sat down with us for a few hours in our first meeting and walked us through the process similar to a home buyer's seminar. To add to this he provided us an instructional packet that layed out all the information he shared with us about the process. Kevin was responsive to our questions (even the very naive ones) and it was very clear from the listings he showed us that he really listen to our needs. He represented us well throughout the process and was an excellent negotiator.


07/27/2017 - chelx

Kevin was great to work with and VERY knowledgeable. As a first time home buyer he pointed out things I would have never thought to look for. He negotiated beautifully for us and helped us win when there were multiple offers. Highly reccomend!


05/14/2017 - BJ Grimm

Kevin helped us all along the way. We initially contacted him because we needed to sell the home within a month. He worked with us to get it listed within two weeks and the house sold within four days at full asking price. He knew the market well, and he recommended we set the listing higher so we could get more for our home. We didn't have time to hire a professional stager, but Kevin gave us excellent tips on how to stage the home ourselves to get top dollar.


04/18/2017 - user3899041

Kevin is an amazing realtor. We used him to sell our first home over 4 years ago and had him continue to search for homes that fit our criteria while we were PCS'd. He is very attentive and does what he can to ensure that you get everything that you want for the price you are willing to pay,


01/16/2017 - liyanzou

Kevin is a very experienced real estate agent. He gave me good suggestions/guidance. He also answered all my questions/concerns. I was very happy working with him. Definitely will recommend him to my friends.


01/15/2017 - prutyna329

Kevin helped with every aspect of the buying process, from sending us listings to attending the closing with us. He was very knowledgeable with the areas we were looking and listened to our requests.

We highly recommend Kevin Carter!


01/15/2017 - ruben nieves9

Very knowledgeable that provides great guidance to stage your house properly for sale. Was great negotiating home findings and identified things during closing that help me received quickly my sale profit.


08/17/2016 - mzman733

Had 14 showings and contract in 8 days. What more needs to be said? Kevin has a great system and makes it looks easier than it is. He knows the business and even saved me some time and money when negotiating final details/conditions of the sale. I would highly recommend Kevin.


06/12/2016 - user5590727

Bottom line: buying a home is one of the most stressful activities a family undertakes. Simply put, Kevin makes buying a home easy and stress free. Kevin knows the area, well plugged into the community, is honest and reliable.

A little overdue but worth reading.
We bought a townhouse in 2003, Kevin was our agent and did a great job working the owners, getting the house inspected and providing sound advice while we searched for a home.
2007 we decided to move from a townhouse to a single family home and again, Kevin helped us through the whole process as a friend and realtor. So he sold our townhouse and helped us find a single family home. Seeing our townhouse was touch and go for a bit but Kevin worked with their realtor to make it happen.
Any chance we get we recommend Kevin for advice or buying/selling a home.


04/02/2016 - collinhenson16

Kevin was very helpful in helping us buy our first home. He has been working as a realtor in the area for a long time and understands the market well. He provided us with a lot of tips and knowledge to help us make our first home purchase successful. Kevin was very responsive and answered questions any time throughout the day. He also pointed our both positive and negative details of homes we viewed to help us make an informed decision on whether or not we were interested in purchasing. I would highly recommend working with Kevin.


03/05/2016 - john rosario1

We've been using Kevin for years. He really knows the business of buying and selling homes. He knows the market and understands our personal situation; not only financial, but what we like in a neighborhood and what experience were we after. He has been our buying and selling agent. We have been planning this current move for two years and Kevin has been there with proper advice to make our plan a reality. Phase one of our two part plan was very successful thanks to Kevin's knowledge of the different neighborhoods and his negotiating skills. We closes on our new home in a little more than thirty days. Now, Kevin is busy selling or former home. I'm confident in Kevin's ability to make that a smooth transaction as well.


03/02/2016 - DevNull00

Amazing realtor. Very honest about all properties. Pointed out flaws, design options for renovations, and was extremely knowledgeable about key home items to check for potential problems. He was a blast to work with.


11/21/2015 - jalionberger

Working with Kevin was a fantastic experience. This was our first time buying a home and we were very fortunate to have found him. Kevin has the regional knowledge, procedural expertise and neighborly demeanor that make him an ideal realtor.

-Kevin had an encyclopedic knowledge of the region, including areas where he had not sold many homes. In our research, Kevin worked primarily outside of Arlington but still knew the area incredibly well and we felt comfortable using him even with the knowledge that we would only buy in Arlington. He was able to rattle off areas we had never heard of, despite our research, and went above and beyond in helping us locate the perfect neighborhood.

-Kevin was absolutely invaluable in guiding us through the process and making us feel well-informed. On one occasion, he spent 2.5 hours with us on a Sunday night explaining housing contracts and what we could expect. Additionally, Kevin is easy to reach and responds promptly to phone calls and text messages - a quality that is an absolute necessity in a realtor. He is responsible and makes the process easy on YOU, the buyer. On the day of our closing, Kevin caught an error in the paperwork that resulted in us saving more than $2,000.

-Lastly, but critically, Kevin is a really nice person with a friendly, calm demeanor. You'll be spending lots of hours with your realtor and you want a person who you like to be around and can trust. We felt comfortable immediately after meeting Kevin and stopped our realtor research after our first introduction with him. The most important indicator of our satisfaction with Kevin is the choice of whether we would use him in the future - and the answer is a resounding yes.


10/13/2015 - n michaels

As first-time home buyers, we had a lot of questions and Kevin gave us his full attention. Kevin did an excellent job of communicating with us which says a lot since we both have irregular work schedules. Thanks to Kevin, we never felt out of the loop in what was a very foreign process.


09/08/2015 - akoenig2

Kevin was an amazing resource to have in searching for a home. Beyond his general knowledge of the Northern VA area, he did an amazing job keeping in mind the "deal breakers" we had when looking for a home. Kevin's help didn't stop just at the home-closing either. We were struggling with our Home Warranty company and Kevin was an amazing aid. He also has awesome business contacts for those looking to have a little work done. If you want someone who will give you a truly HONEST opinion and keeps your best interest in mind regarding resale value, price negotiation and fit for your family, he is definitely the way to go!


08/17/2015 - user15378206

When my wife and I first met with Kevin, who had previously sold/purchased 3 of our properties, he suggested that we make a few upgrades to the house and despite having 5 other houses up for sale on the same street, we believe his suggestions and professionalism made all the difference. Before we signed the agent’s agreement, Kevin brought over comps of houses in our neighborhood and city. He also brought over samples of his marketing material and his strategy for selling the house. Considering that we had done previous business with Kevin and knowing how successful those transactions were we had no hesitation giving him our business once again. Kevin had a professional photographer, this is part of his standard services, come out to take pictures of the house. In my opinion the pictures really helped get folks motivated to come view the home during the open house, we had over ten sets of potential buyers stop by. We has another successful transaction and will continue to do business with Kevin in the future.


03/19/2015 - Skaloudi

Kevin was extremely helpful and courteous. We would most definitely recommend him to others. He was very attentive to our questions and concerns. He also orchestrated the sale of our current home.


03/19/2015 - clcollinsworth

Kevin Carter was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and assertive through the entire process. Kevin was quick to respond to any questions or concerns I had and provided honest feedback. I could not have been happier with my experience working with Kevin. His market expertise and guidance helped make the sale easy--especially during a very cold, snowy winter!


12/18/2014 - jfuller

Kevin was extremely helpful in helping me purchase my first home. He was always accessible when I needed to view homes and would work around my schedule. What I liked most about working with Kevin was that he was honest when it came to information about the houses, the negatives and the positives, and everything in between. For a first time home buyer it helped my knowledge and helped me in making the best decision for my home. Kevin also made the paperwork side of home buying very simple and easy to understand for someone who has never dealt with such things. Kevin is a fantastic realtor and definitely gives his clients 100% of his effort.


12/14/2014 - user940476

Kevin was wonderful. He helped us sell our home and purchase a new one, walking us through the entire process. Our home was under contract after being on the market for only 5 days. He was always available to answer our questions making both transactions smooth and painless. This is the second time we have called Kevin and we wouldn't use anyone else!


11/20/2014 - Darrell Millner

Kevin is a very professional, creative, full service realtor. His attention to detail, straight shooting, no nonsense approach made our selling experience amazing. With his team (Kelly) we were always in the loop, our unit sold in record time for the price we wanted. - Darrell


11/20/2014 - darrell942

If you are looking for a straight shooter that will represent you professionally, you can't beat Kevin. Solid and reliable. Would use Kevin and his team again in an instant. Our unit sold in record time, for the price we wanted.


10/06/2014 - Heather Walrath

As first-time buyers, my husband and I enjoyed working with Kevin. He walked us through the process every step of the way, offering honest advice and sharing his extensive expertise about everything from contracts and negotiating to the interior and exterior condition of the various homes we viewed. With Kevin’s help and guidance, we were able to find and purchase a great first home within a much shorter timeframe than we initially anticipated. We recommend Kevin to other buyers and would definitely work with him again in the future.


08/28/2014 - hndgnr454

Kevin's professionalism and experience were evident from his rapid response to my initial query (over the 4th of July weekend) all the way through to settlement. I found Kevin through a search online and was impressed with his credentials and excellent reviews. In 25 years and over a dozen real estate transactions, I have never used a real estate agent more than once, but Kevin is the exception and I recommend him highly. Kevin will be my first call the next time I need to buy or sell.


07/31/2014 - annmarie stapor

Kevin was a delight to work with! I was a first time home buyer and he explained everything to me in a way that I could clearly understand what was going on and helped me make the right decisions in the process. I was purchasing a home in Maryland which was a good distance from his main area of work. He had no problem scheduling times to meet with me to look at homes and it worked out so we could see 5-6 houses in 1 day. He was more than willing to meet me and go over documents that I didn't quite understand in person and made me feel very confident in what decisions I was making. Buying a house is a little bit of a scary process but Kevin knows it extremely well and walked me through it in a way that made me feel confident and comfortable. He is very honest with everything and will shed some light on the inner working of a house that I did not even realize. When something didn't quite go the right way Kevin really showed his quick thinking and negotiating skills to turn the tables. This is not just work for Kevin, he really wants to make his clients happy. I would recommend him to anyone I know who is in the market for selling or buying.


07/23/2014 - Kelly Gayer

Kevin was fantastic to work with! This was a first time selling for me and he helped every step of the way. He was honest, straight forward and patient. He answered every question I had (even if it was the same question several times!) and provided great recommendations on upgrades to get me a better sale. He made the home selling process a breeze and I will gladly work with him again should the need arise. I'd also highly recommend him to anyone!


07/23/2014 - kelly jones0319

I found Kevin through my bank, Northwest Federal Credit Union. He helped me tremendously with the sale of my condo. Having never sold a property before, I had tons of questions - some times the same one many times over - and he answered each one thoroughly. He had great suggestions on upgrades for the property and even recommended some contractors to work with. He was prompt, informative, and straightforward and an absolute pleasure to work with. Kevin made the entire process very easy. I would definitely recommend his services!


07/17/2014 - user8429764

Kevin helped me purchase a home in Ashburn. Kevin was professional, courteous, and very knowledgable. He always kept our best interests in mind (especially when our lender made several mistakes). I would, and will recommend Kevin to anyone I know purchasing or selling a home in the area.


07/14/2014 - babbleon44

Kevin has excellent marketing skills. In addition, Kevin provided a "stager" and professional photographer, at no cost to us. He has access to many professionals should they be needed. We met Kevin through two workshops he gave through Northwest Federal Credit Union which proved to be very useful. We believe that by following through on tips from Kevin, the staging tips, and the excellent photos available online and in the brochures, all contributed to selling our home in four days. We highly recommend Kevin!


07/14/2014 - 192burgess

Kevin was our second Realtor. He had an impressive marketing strategy and answered all my questions (a LOT) fully and very patiently. He offered advice at appropriate times and presented our options in all situations. Our previous realtor contacted us almost too much. In my opinion Kevin achieves a pleasant balance and was always available when we needed him. I would definitely recommend Kevin as a professional realtor who achieves results.


06/29/2014 - crispin2336

Kevin did a terrific job for us as our buyer's broker. We were first-time purchasers and had only a very short window in which to buy our house. We relied on Kevin's expertise and experience--both in terms of market understanding and in negotiations--and were completely satisfied. Kevin's calm and professional manner made an otherwise difficult and stressful process seem easy. His knowledge of the market was encyclopedic, while his well-established reputation with local lenders facilitated a quick and problem-free closing process. We will recommend him to anyone looking at selling or purchasing.


06/16/2014 - JuanJose

Kevin helped us to buy our first home in the US. We didn't have any clue regarding the buying process and Kevin guided us in the process. More importantly, he was willing to talk at any time regarding any (simple) question we had. He listens to the customer and, more importantly, he is not pushy. He also helped us with the negotiation and the addendum process after the home inspection. We had a great experience with Kevin and we would recommend him without a doubt.


05/09/2014 - ccclake

I received Kevin's name from our Credit Union. He responded to my first inquiry within 24 hours. He met with me to review the house and give suggestions before I even signed a contract with him. He was thorough, honest, and was able to recommend people to help me with carpeting, cleaning, painting, and moving. He was adaptable to my situation, seeking alternative solutions to all our difficulties. He was able to help with the sale and closure of the house, even though we had to leave the area in the middle of the sale process due to my husband's illness and hospitalization. I have recommended his services to long time friends who chose to work with him as well. I would recommend him without hesitation to others who wish to buy or sell property in the NoVA area.


05/07/2014 - QQ

My husband and I worked with Kevin on three real estate transactions in the past five years. We purchased our primariy home in VA with Kevin in 2009, sold my in-laws home in MD the next year, and purchased a condo for my mom last month. That just showed how much we trusted Kevin when it comes to dealing with real estate. He responds to calls and emails as promptly as it can be and also is very patient at each appointment. I would recommend him without any hesitation, and I did, to friends and relatives for their real estate needs.


05/04/2014 - srcitygirl1

Kevin has many years of experience and extensive knowledge of the northern VA real estate market. He does the detailed research and work and realistically assesses the market. He is easy to work with, great personality, answered a lot of questions, and made the process really easy. We will be working with him soon to purchase another property.


03/23/2014 - KRuddy810

We used Kevin to buy our first home. He was so patient with all our questions, honest with his answers, and direct with his advice. I knew that what he was saying could be trusted because he didn't sugarcoat his answers just to get us to buy any old house. He really cared about making sure we didn't make any novice mistakes. Once we found our cute little fixer upper, he helped us get a great settlement and we navigated through the closing process with ease. We're coming up on a year in the home and we couldn't be happier!


10/28/2013 - user3567209

I have worked with Kevin in many capacities; as a mortgage lender, a home purchaser and most recently as a seller. I met Kevin while working for a Credit Union as a mortgage originator; he was skilled and knowledgeable and I witness several closings where his skill as a realtor resolving issues was tested. I admire Kevin's integrity and ability to represent his client. When it was time for me to purchase a home, there was no question my choice for a realtor; and now five years later I turn to Kevin to sell my home.


09/30/2013 - Roy Lewis

I recommend this agent because he is knowledgeable, He has good local knowledge, Willing to listen to the customer, he is not pushy, He is professional, He is responsive and has excellent negotiation skills, We need more agents like this in the business. I had a wonderful business experience with this agent and I would not hesitate to recommend his services to anyone.


09/27/2013 - karritz

Kevin did a fantastic job with both the sale of our home and helping us find a new one. He is very knowledgable, customer service oriented and was always there when we needed him. He also helped us find the home we were looking for. We highly recommend him.


09/27/2013 - Andrew4343

Excellent agent. Represented us very well during e buying process and at closing. Helped negotiate 11k in credits from seller in spite of multiple offers on property. Clearly has good network among other agents. Very nice personality.
When he is with you, spends a lot of time with you and listens well. We were impressed that he spent nine hours looking at houses with us our first day. ON The other hand, the unfortunate flip side is that Kevin's skill means that he has several clients at once which makes it hard, at times to reach him at times.
Highly recommended.


09/16/2013 - user9474311

We recently purchased a home as Kevin was our real estate agent. Kevin is knowledgable about every area we looked in and gave us honest and sound advice and opinions as we searched for our new home. We made multiple offers on selected homes until we found the perfect one for us. Kevin put our needs first and spent extensive time on our home search. Kevin was recommended to my father as well, who's home he sold in 3 weeks! Kevin is a great agent that can assist anyone in any price point. We would highly recommend Kevin for anyone looking for a home in the DC Maryland Northern VA reigon.


09/15/2013 - user2657482

Kevin Carter is a great realtor! He started off with his marketing presentation to show us all the exposure our house would have in different listings. He gave us helpful hints on what would help us sell our house faster. He was available 24/7! He would work well into the night if needed to help us sell our house. It did sell quickly - 10 days! Kevin is a friendly, knowledge and dedicated realtor. It was a pleasure to work with him. I would highly recommend him! A+++


08/29/2013 - user2205744

When we first met Kevin, he gave us a thorough marketing strategy for the sale of our home. We were very impressed with his knowledge of the area and his assessment of our home and its potential. Once hired, Kevin immediately moved forward with a beautiful virtual tour of our home and stunning pictures. He quickly advertised our home, scheduled a Broker's Open House, as well as, an open house for the same week-end. Kevin "always" answered or returned our calls promptly and kept us abreast of how things were going. He was always upbeat and positive. Kevin truly made this as painless as possible. If I had another home in the Virginia area that I wanted to sell, I would not hesitate to hire Kevin. Kevin is one of a kind and he is masterful at his job.


11/23/2012 - user9114012

Kevin was outstanding - he knew the area well, was flexible with appointments, and went out of his way whenever possible. In fact, he made our offer while on vacation at midnight, knowing we didn't want to miss an opportunity in a very competitive market.
We would absolutely recommend Kevin!
