Testimonials

Printable Testimonials
Dedicated, full of energy with a detailed knowledge of Washington DC and surroundings, Connie found the perfect house for us! She is passionate about her job and aims at finding the perfect location for her customers. She is really well-connected in DC and knows about the houses before they reach the market which is a big plus. I was impressed by her every day and cannot thank her enough.

Save and Stefan Emblad

A long-time realtor with years of experience, Connie's results speak for themselves. She sold our home in less than two weeks at a price point that, frankly, exceeded our own aspirations. Connie was also integral in the strategy process. This became particularly important in a highly competitive purchase environment. Our uniquely structured offer for our "dream home" helped us not only close the deal but also prevented a bidding war and reduced the chances that we might overpay. Connie was professional, responsive, transparent, and made the entire experience fun and rewarding. We will recommend Connie to all of our family and friends looking for a realtor!

Ashely Dunn and Matthew Goodspeed

I worked with Connie Carter as a diplomat at the Embassy of Kazakhstan in DC on a deal to purchase a new residence for our Ambassador. Connie was extremely successful in finding a beautiful property that fully matched all our requirements. She was effective negotiating a complicated deal in a way that was both acceptable to the seller and cost-efficient for the Embassy. I strongly recommend Connie Carter for real estate transactions in the Washington metropolitan area and beyond.

Zhanbolat Ussenov
Deputy Secretary to Ambassador from Kazakhstan to the U.S.

Connie went above and beyond for us throughout the whole entire process. Our home-buying process was not the easiest one, but Connie remained a strong pillar of support throughout all of it. Not only did she cater to the whole entire family, but she truly had our best intentions at heart. As international buyers, Connie made our purchase definitely more enjoyable, and we have told all of our friends about her for their next purchase. For our next home sale, we will go with no one else but Mrs. Carter!

Alois Ndorere and Renilde Bazahica

We hired Connie to sell our client’s home after an extensive search for a high-quality agent focusing on high-end properties in Georgetown and Observatory Circle. We looked closely at thirteen prominent agents covering those areas, interviewed three, and selected Connie after an extensive analysis.

To say that our client and my firm were pleased with Connie is a major understatement. The work that Connie did far exceeded everything we could have possibly expected and under challenging conditions. Our client was not living in the home, and Connie arranged for all staging and fixing up of the residence. Moreover, she kept fixing-up costs very low yet was able to obtain a sales price that exceeded, by a large margin, the price estimated by virtually all of the other agents we considered. Finally, Connie was able to handle everything, and I do mean everything, from the time she was retained until sale, within about two months, all for a home that required a substantial amount of work before sale.

We found Connie to be smart, hard working, proactive, efficient, and fun to work with. We highly recommend her as a real estate agent and we will certainly use her again.

Connie Carter is impressively knowledgeable about the DC area and helpful in connecting clients with homes that match their needs. We found her to be efficient, persistent, accommodating, and intelligent. With her years of experience she has reliable connections from appraisers to contractors.

Brian Baker
1st Mariner Mortgage

Connie Carter is an outstanding realtor. We worked together to assist a mutual client purchase his first home. He had very specific requirements and took quite some time to make a decision. Connie was very patient with him and worked diligently until the right property was identified and our client was satisfied. She is quick to respond to any request, is excellent with negotiating pricing and terms and has a very strong understanding of the market. I would highly recommend her to another client as well as hire her personally if I were buying or selling my own home.

Deb Gand

Connie was always clear and proactive, helping to set a realistic selling price based on market conditions, managing the staging of the house to suit today's buyers, arranging open houses and showings, engaging creatively in negotiations to get the best price and following through to the closing to make sure everything went smoothly. She is terrific.

G. T. Dale

My partner and I used Connie to sell our 2BR 2BA condo last year. Connie is one of the most sincere, smart, responsive, resourceful and results-oriented realtor we have ever used. Even if you use her to sell your home in a neighborhood that she doesn't know that well, she finds ways to connect with other agents who do and she gets the job done. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Connie.

I have hired Connie on two occasions to assist me with selling my home and purchasing a new one. The experience was a very positive and easy one. Connie is very upbeat and personable and was constantly communicating on a daily basis. The best thing was taking care of the problems and/or issues behind the scenes to help the transaction go smoothly. I would definitely work with Connie again.

Connie helped me sell our Kalorama house in the spring of 2008, as the market was cracking and financial markets were going haywire. She kept her head throughout the unnerving market environment. She was entirely professional in the process of showing the house to potential purchasers, held numerous open houses, gave good pricing guidance and showed great enthusiasm for marketing our house in an effective way. We were very satisfied with the final outcome.
