HERE'S WHAT TERRY'S RECENT CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY:
"Terry, Patty and the rest of the folks at the Belt Team were highly professional and responsive to my needs. I had a unique home for this market and after thoroughly researching comparable sales and market trends, they helped me properly price and prepare it to attract just the right buyer. I was out of town a lot so they greatly assisted me with lining up contractors and making any needed repairs to finalize the sale. They made a difficult process fairly painless and we ended up with a great result." Carol Yaley (Aug 2017)
"The Belt Team performed way above and beyond. This was an incredibly complex transaction. From the beginning to the end the entire Belt Team was highly engaged and on top of everything. It was very reassuring to know we were in such capable hands. Terry is an agent that knows exactly how to price a home, market it and follow up. His calm demeanor and superior knowledge are a true asset and he is a very skilled master negotiator. When it came time to buy he showed the same level of expertise and closed the transaction very quietly. Special Kudos to the Patty -- she is the unsung hero of the office. She makes sure all the T's and I's are dotted and is delightful. All in all, this was a highly stressful time and the entire Belt Team just performed fantastically. I would without hesitation recommend them to anyone -- they delivered on everything they promised and more in a highly professional and personalized manner." Joseph Addison (July 2017)
"Terry Belt helped my fiancé and I (first time homebuyers) find a great house in a very competitive market. He was extremely knowledgeable about the northern virginia area and was able to help us hone in on where we wanted to live. For someone who is new to the area, this was incredibly valuable! Once we found a home we were interested in purchasing and our financing was approved, Terry and Patty took care of the rest! I highly recommend Terry Belt & The Belt Team! :-)"? Cara Peters (July 2017)
"We worked with Kevin Kleifges and Patty Schuebel on the purchase of our new home. They were both wonderful to work with and made the home buying experience extremely easy, even in the very competitive Northern Virginia market. Kevin quickly showed us several properties and was able to help us negotiate a price below asking. He was responsive and made himself available to attend the necessary home inspections. He has also kept in touch after the sale, and provided recommendations on vendors/contractors we needed. We would highly recommend Terry Belt & The Belt Team without any reservations." Sally Na (July 2017)
"Five star service beginning to end. Terry Belt was especially tenacious in dealing with a very difficult seller..........and successful in meeting our goals. Highly recommend this highly professional and knowledgeable team." Sue Lutz (April 2017)
"***SUPERIOR REALTOR. SIMPLY NONE BETTER*** Terry Belt and his team provided us the absolute BEST service! They exceeded our every expectation and helped us find our dream home. Terry helped us purchase our new home at a great price, and sell our existing home ABOVE ASKING price all in less than 60 days. Terry always remained one step ahead, anticipating our requests and providing detailed answers to any questions we brought to him. Terry is also 100% honest. Terry identified what he perceived to be an oversight on his part during our closing, brought it to our attention quickly and resolved it well in excess of our expectation. I could not give Terry a higher recommendation. If there were a six-star rating he deserves it. Terry Belt is a superior realtor, genuinely good person and someone I will definitely recommend to anyone in need of real estate service."? Sean & Christy Toole (April 2017)
"The Belt Team is FANTASTIC!! This is the third time we have used The Belt Team for our real estate transactions (buying and selling). We have been living out of state and decided we wanted to move back to Northern Virginia when we retired. We also knew we wanted to build. We weren’t sure how to go about finding the right piece of property and a builder we could count on to deliver the house of our dreams. We met with Terry Belt and Tom Hanton just about a year ago and discussed what we were looking for…they quickly helped us identify what was important and guided us through the process. Building a home can be stressful…especially if you aren’t there to see the day-to-day progress. Tom did a great job keeping us informed and being our local representative with the builder. We closed on our “dream home” last week and couldn’t be happier!" Dan & Cathy Brady (March 2017)
"Terry and his team are simply amazing. Terry made a stressful process easy. He always had sound advice and answered our numerous questions. We felt complete trust in Terry and his team. If you are buying or selling a house, this is the team you want on your side!" James Wilson (Dec 2016)
"Have done multiple houses both buying and selling with Terry and his team. They are truly the best at what they do and the kind of people you feel comfortable with their advice! " Ken Schwarz (May 2016)
"Terry was the perfect match for selling our home, as he knew that area/neighborhood so well. Using Terry's stager, we decluttered, and then with his help, we accurately priced our home. We received a full-price contract the first weekend! Thanks Terry and the entire staff for making this whole process run so smooth :) " Vicki & Tom Healy (April 2016)
"Terry, Patty, and the entire Belt Team are the dream team. As a first-time home buyer, Terry was patient with my MANY questions. He and his team made the process seamless and painless. Terry was great about negotiating what I wanted in the contract, down to the smallest detail. Terry was able to contact the sellers' less-than-responsive realtor effectively and efficiently. Terry and Patty are professional and approachable. I have already recommended them to friends and will continue to sing their praises. Thanks to Terry’s dedication and long hours of work, I am a contented first-time homeowner!" Ana Rose Tuszka (April 2016)
"I know that buying and selling a house can be enormously stressful. We have used Terry Belt in two separate buying/selling transactions. We first met The Belt Team in 2006 when we sold our home and purchased a new home both in the Vienna area. Terry worked as our seller agent and a different Belt Team member acted as our buyer agent. Both agents did a great job and the transaction went extremely smoothly. Our house sold in less than a month.
In the summer of 2014 I called Terry out of the blue to look at a house with us. We told him that we believed that the home was overpriced and that we were thinking about putting in an offer significantly below asking price. Terry could have told us that we were crazy and that he wasn't interested in playing games, but he patiently went to the house with us a couple of times and waited for us to decide that it wasn't right for us. Our buying interest calmed for a bit and Terry played it cool. He called a couple of times but appreciated that we were being patient. Early in 2015 we called Terry again to look at some houses and he jumped into action. We looked at many houses and because he knew exactly what we were looking for, he called whenever he heard about something coming on the market that might be of interest. So, we were often among the first to see a home. On the flip side, when I showed interest in a property and asked to see it, we were generally in the home within an hour or two.
When landed on the home that we knew was 'the one' Terry patiently waited for us to make the decision and then immediately moved into business mode. We had a strong offer into the builder within hours and a ratified contract by midnight. We immediately set our minds on the selling side. We moved into high gear and prepared our old home to go on the market two weeks later. The Belt Team took beautiful pictures of our home, put together a seamless packet for potential buyers and used their broad system of connections to market our home. Our house went on the market Friday, February 20 and we were under contract (in the middle of a snowstorm) on Saturday, February 21. The contract was contingent on appraisal of our home which, was a bit of a gamble. Terry worked behind the scenes with the realtors and the people he had connections with in the business to give us peace of mind as we moved through the process. Every issue that came up as we moved towards closing was immediately rectified. We really were in good hands. Closing was quick and seamless.
While you cannot take the stress out of buying and selling a house, when you work with a full service team like, The Belt Team, you cannot go wrong. I sound a little bit like a commercial, but I really must say that the whole experience really went as well as it possibly could. I wish you
