Martin Bristow of The Belt Team has truly been a pleasure to work with. He's a good man, straight forward. From the start Martin has been dedicated to helping us find a home, that we would meet our needs and give our family and infant daughter room to grow. With an almost 1 year old, viewing homes was a challenge and Martin was more than accommodating. There was no rush, and Martin helped us weight the pros and cons of the properties that we visited. There's a lot to say about working with an experienced Realtor who's willing to give your their insight on the local communities, areas that are a bit more suited to raise kids, and to prioritize your search on the local schools. Working with The Belt Team has been a night and day difference from by previous home buying experience. My previous experience wasn't bad, but the Belt Team's approach could not be matched. From the thorough review of properties, to discussions of my existing home rental options, knowledge of contracts, and a well planned & coordinated process for closing on our new home I will encourage my close friends to work with The Belt Team on home purchases in the DC Metro area.

We worked with Gail to sell my parents home. What a positive experience! She was so wonderful to work with. Since this was my parents home, I wasn't as involved as they were and tried not to be too involved. However, when I did have questions, Gail was quick to respond with extremely thorough emails. She was incredibly knowledgeable of the market, and what it would take to sell my parents home. Their home had been listed several times before, but had not sold. Gail did her due diligence in understanding what needed to be done to sell the home. She made suggestions, helped us to contact vendors/contractors, and really made the sale of their home a pleasant experience. We are all extremely grateful to Gail and her team and would highly recommend to anyone looking to sell their home. Less ... More

When we decided to put our house up for sale, we looked at the "sold" signs in nearby neighborhoods as well as our own. It was obvious that The Belt Team was very successful at selling homes. We were delighted when we spoke to Kevin, a seasoned realtor at Terry Belt & The Belt Team. He quickly answered every question we had, revealing his professionalism and expertise in knowing the nuances of the housing market. Kevin displayed his experience throughout each step of the process, and his office manager Patty provided timely help during the sales process. We are very happy we chose the Belt Team and Kevin.

Tom and Beth were phenomenal in helping me purchase my first home. I was working on a very short timeline (less than 2 days) to see properties, and they went above and beyond to help me see as many properties as possible. I am very satisfied with my experience with the Belt Team, and will surely use them again in the future.

We are happy we chose to work with the Belt Team to buy our first house. We worked with Tom Reilly, with Beth helping as well, and Patty behind the scenes. Given that we were first time home-buyers, and that we are also detail-oriented, we had many many questions. Tom was very patient and responsive in answering our questions. We felt very comfortable having Tom and Beth on our side, in their knowledge of process, neighborhoods, and market conditions. Tom also took good steps to understand what we were looking for in a home, as well as getting to know us so he could offer personalized service. In cases where Tom had a schedule conflict and couldn't show us a home, Beth stepped in seamlessly. Even though we spent time doing research on the process, it is still daunting your first time, and the team did a great job getting us through it. Once we were under contract, Patty made sure we stayed on schedule. When making decisions like those in the homebuying process, it's important to work with somebody who has your interests in mind. With Tom, we always felt that was the case. Less ... More

Tom Reilly and his colleagues at the Belt Team are great! They helped my husband and I buy our first home in Falls Church. We found him through the Apple Federal Credit Union and the Home Advantage Program which they work extremely well with. After more than one hiccup beyond our control (outbid on two houses, buying a house in the winter, and having to get two home assessments) Tom kept our spirits up, educated us, worked creatively and smartly, and got us a perfect house for the perfect price. We have been here for 4 months and love it. Less ... More

This past weekend we moved into our townhouse and wanted to take this opportunity to thank your team of Beth Dadisman & Tom Reilly, for the exceptional service and experience we had working with them in finding our new home in Vienna, VA. When we decided to move to this area, my wife registered with a few of the local realtors. Beth was one of the few who called quickly. A few never called back which was disheartening at first. Some who did call wanted to know if we were hoping to purchase sooner than later. We even had some referrals but they soon stopped following up since we weren?t quite ready to make a purchase. Beth persisted but with no pressure. She took time to understand our needs and then once we were ready to start looking, we met Tom. Both of them spent a good amount of time understanding what we were looking for and also gave us a detailed description of the market and the various areas which met our criteria: proximity to the metro, townhouse versus a single family home, a good neighborhood for our kids. They were also kind enough to introduce us to local lenders for our mortgage needs. Over the fall, we saw a few houses and the process began. Beth was cognizant of our needs and we fine-tuned our search as we went along. They always helped answer our questions and provided timely information. Winter was slow but your team kept in touch and in early spring, we found a house that we liked and that?s when Tom took over and helped negotiate the terms and take care of all the paperwork and there was plenty of it. Finally, we closed and both Beth and Tom were there in support. We also wanted to send a shout out to Patty Schuebel for providing a lot of the information we needed for closing. Not once did we feel pressurized to decide on a house and were consistently supported by both, Beth & Tom. They provided us the help and information we needed to make the purchase and waited until we found something that we liked and wanted. Thank you Beth & Tom for your help in helping us find a home and we look forward to working with you and the Belt Team again in the future. Less ... More

I listed my house with Terry Belt and the sale went extremely smoothly. Terry was very knowledgeable about the local market, very easy to deal with, communicated well, and my house sold in 12 days for very close to what he thought it would. I would not hesitate to use him again if I was selling or buying another house in this area.

Kevin Kleifges and his team did a great job selling our home.

After interviewing several real estate agents in the area we elected to go with Tom and Beth of the Belt Team. While all of the agents we interviewed came highly recommended we felt that Tom had the best knowledge of the area and that the larger Belt Team would have more resources to provide us valuable insights in a competitive market. Tom and Beth took the time to understand our housing needs and then worked with us to identify neighborhoods in the area that fit those needs. They were proactive in identifying and previewing properties for us and were very responsive to our calls and emails throughout the entire process. They ultimately helped us to close on a house before it officially listed, thus avoiding a potential multiple offer situation. Tom artfully negotiated with the seller's agent and determined what offer would be mutually agreeable. Overall, they made a stressful process easy and straightforward. We love that we were able to find a house in our ideal neighborhood, and we highly recommend The Belt Team. Less ... More

The Belt team, with Kevin Kleifges guiding the sale of my home could not have been more satisfying. His knowledge and personal experience of the local community were valuable in marketing the property. He explained every detail in the process, arranged for staging, inspections, and conducting an open house presentation. There were no surprises. Most importantly, the house was sold in a very few days at the agreed sale price. Thanks Belt Team for a job well done.

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. 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. 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. Overall, our experience could not have been more positive. We would recommend Martin in a heartbeat! Less ... More

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. Less ... More

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. Less ... More

The Belt Team, with Gail Belt and Ann Page in the lead, and Patty Schuebel and many other outstanding folks on the Belt Team in the background, performed an absolutely difficult and herculean accomplishment in closing for us the sale of a corporate office suite asset at 1801 Robert Fulton Drive in Reston Virginia this past May. Normally a property of this nature, during the real estate market at the time, might have taken much more that a year to conclude, we were told, but these marvelous ladies and their support associates accomplished the task in just over six months. The sale was part of an estate liquidation operation which had many complications. They were undaunted in their assignment. I initially contacted Gail at Keller Williams because she had served as our family real estate expert for over 20 years, and at least six successful residential and commercial transactions, much to our great mutual benefit. For this commercial requirement, however, Gail teamed with Ann Page which certainly proved to be an extremely winning combination. The difficulty in closing on this Reston property can only be appreciated by experts. They made it happen after many long, late, and overtime hours when others probably could not have done so. I cannot provide a stronger or more positive recommendation for these ladies than to propose that in my estimation they should be identified as the Magic Real Estate Team of the Year! Less ... More

From the moment we began working with Kevin to the day we closed, he was amazingly dedicated, impressively knowledgeable and truly a pleasure to work with. He was also patient and adept at coaching us through our various thought processes, supportive of our viewpoints and delicately contributing his superior industry knowledge to the decision. We had some substantial challenges in getting the house in listing condition under extreme time pressure. He recommended resources and helped us work with those resources, which really saved the day several times. During the final stretch dealing with the buyer's proposal, he was instrumental in coming up with solutions to satisfy both parties. We sold the house quickly and for a price that we were very happy with.

Gail and The Belt Team did a fantastic job selling my parents home of 40 years. I work in the sales office of a home builder in the same town as my parents home. I understand the process of selling a home and as their daughter I also relate to the emotion that is involved with leaving a home of 40 years. Although I have not had the opportunity to work with Gail in a professional realm, this was a delightful experience. I did not hesitate to have The Belt Team list the home based on their stellar reputation. Unnecessary as it was professionally, I remained hands on throughout the process (as a daughter) to ensure every detail was attended. I've seen a lot of agents "wing it" on home purchases/sales. This is NOT how the Belt Team approaches real estate. The entire team is involved so calls are answered, attitudes are professional, details are clear, leaving no gaps in the process what -so -ever.

Aime and I had lived in our home for 40 years but it was time to move on. From the time we called Gail Belt, I could not have been happier. Gail is very detailed oriented and she was very sensitive to our situation but professional and right on with her decisions. I told her from the beginning, you are the "expert" and we will go with your suggestions. Whatever she suggested, we took her advice and she listened to our needs. I wanted to have Easter without realtors going through the house. Thursday after Easter, the house went on the market. It had a lot of traffic because you can walk to Dunn Loring Metro. It not only sold in 4 days at the price Gail set but it was sold with no contingencies at $25,000 above asking price and they gave us free rent back for 30 days again at Gail's suggestion. Gail does not work alone in this process she has a great team called the "Belt Team", if Gail is not available you will hear from Patty Schuebel a very dedicated Team member and the rest of the " team" works behind the scenes. In all our sadness of leaving our home of 40 years, we are delighted that a young family with 3 small children will now occupy this lovely home. Thank you Gail and the Belt Team.

My husband and I worked with Kevin Kleifges of Keller Williams Realty?s BELT Team for almost four months as our buyer agent from the start of our search through move in to our new home. Kevin possesses great real estate agent qualities. Kevin knows the area (for us ? Vienna / Tysons / Falls Church), is very professional, and has a lot of experience in the industry. In a market with limited inventory, he has a lot of connections with other agents in the area and was able to get us in early to look at new listings or even houses that had not yet been posted. Kevin always accommodated our schedule, including showing us listings in the worst inclement weather. He helped us successfully get a contract signed in a competitive market by crafting an offer that optimized the needs of all parties. He did a great job helping us to resolve the few problems we encountered with the house and the seller?s agent. (The seller?s agent did not demonstrate the same class or integrity). Everything ran smoothly from start to finish. We appreciated the ease of working with Keller Williams. They use electronic signature so we could just sign the contracts and addendums which is so convenient. We also received a friendly reminder emails from his office suggesting the actionable items we need to do at closing and before we moved in. I am really glad that we worked with him and all of the people in his office. In addition to the work of Keller Williams Realty, Kevin presented strong connections, including quality loan officer, home inspector and repair contractors (although I ended up using my own loan officer for the purchase). His inspector came with many years of experience and identified several issues that others would have missed, which saved us time, money and headache down the road. In summary, I would highly recommend working with Kevin and his team if you are looking for expertise, loyalty, and trust in your realtor. Less ... More

Tom recently helped me buy my first home and I was very pleased with the experience. I was nervous at first because north-Arlington wasn't his usual area of operations, but once we started looking I could not tell! He has the whole Belt Team at his disposal for any questions he couldn't answer immediately, and he made himself available around my hectic, unpredictable schedule. Because I travel a lot for work, he even helped out by acting as a proxy for the home inspection and worked with me late into the night on several occasions. Tom was insightful without being pushy. It was clear he had my best interest at heart and wasn't just trying to get me to close on a place that wasn't perfect for me! Less ... More

When we started the home buying process, our lender gave us the option to receive a rebate if we selected a realtor from its preferred network. We called quite a few realtors covering VA and only Tom (Belt Team) was the only one responsible enough to call us back immediately. We liked Tom's responsiveness and desire to accommodate our needs and requests. He arranged a couple of house showings right on the next day. When we first met him, he gave us the printed copies of the houses we would visit and he would also sort them out in the order we would go to them. We knew from that moment that he is right realtor for us. My husband and I like organized, accurate and responsible people, because usually these people are the ones who finish the job they started. So, if you need a really good realtor who knows his job, is accommodating and very organized, please contact Tom Reilly from the Belt Team. We are also thankful to Tom's back support, Patty, who was very dedicated in helping us out with closing our home buying transaction. She was very detailed in walking us over the steps we need to take in order to finalize all the cumbersome paper works before we arrived to the closing day. Thank you Belt Team. We appreciate your support! Less ... More

I would like to highly recommend the real estate marketing skills of Kevin Kleifges of The Belt Team. Right from our first meeting to the day of closing, I was most impressed with his knowledge of the process, market timing and ability to get things done. Kevin guided me every step of the way and was always accessible to answer questions. He was helpful in getting my house ready for market, recommending a good general contractor for painting and fix up. And, of course, no real estate agent knows Vienna better than does The Belt Team. Thanks to Kevin, it was a good experience. Less ... More

My wife and I worked with Kevin Kleifges and The Belt Team to buy our new home in July 2013. We are extremely happy with the help and service that Kevin provided us. We were overwhelmed at the process of looking for and buying a home, but Kevin helped keep us calm and guide us through the process, from looking at homes, choosing a lender, negotiating a fair price, and he was there for us even on the day of closing. Since we were interested in older homes, he was able to advise us on costs of updating and renovation projects so that we could consider those things in our budget. Kevin was honest and upfront on all aspects of our home buying process. We are very happy with our new home and we would not have found it without Kevin. We would recommend him and the Belt Team to anyone who is looking for a home in the DC metro area. Less ... More

I have worked with Gail Belt of the Belt Team on 4 transactions (2 purchases and 2 sales). Most recently she sold our home in 2 days for over the asking price. Gail is the consummate professional in residential real estate sales. She is skilled in merchandising the property and marketing the location. She is an effective negotiator and an expert in contract preparation and execution. Over the years I have bought and sold 11houses. Gail is the best.

Our realtor was Tom Reiley who had had great patience with first time home buyers. He was very knowledgable with different neighorhoods in Northern Virginia. Tom directed us toward areas and homes that would be suitable with my life style and needs. The Belt Team was extremely friendly and helpful through the tough period of time during the house closing.

We used Tom Reilly of the Belt Team to purchase a home in McLean, Va. We couldn't be more pleased with our experience. We were relocatees, like many in this market, and quickly learned that we needed an agent who was an expert in valuation, had a jump on what was coming to market, was responsive, and would make themselves available to get us into listings. Tom is that agent. He worked with us diligently to understand our needs and then find a home in the neighborhood and price range we wanted. Tom came highly recommended to us. Unfortunately for us, it was only after we had wasted some valuable time with another agent (in this frothy market, time is of the essence). I recommend Tom highly to all buyers. Hopefully, you're able to read this before you engage someone else. Less ... More

Terry impressed us from the very beginning. As we interviewed realtors to represent us, he stood out as very knowlegable about the market and what was and was not in the realm of the possible. It was easy to choose him from the others. Then, everything he predicted happened. This is a real pro telling you what would happen. We sold the house in two days to very well qualified buyers for 97% of our asking price and that was knowing the "comparables" were often a bit newer on bigger lots. The hardest part was dealing with a difficult buyer's realtor. Terry was a pro and the other person was not. He got us past that. We went from being on the market to closing in 28 days. Incredible.

It was three years ago since Gail Belt helped us buy a home. My wife's mom was a realtor in California, and her office interviewed 3 different realtors in the area, and based on that interview over the phone, recommended Gail hands-down. It was the best possible recommendation we could imagine. We were living in China at the time, and moving back to the DC area. A few months before our move back, my wife came back to Vienna to look at homes with Gail. They found one, but it was not an ordinary situation, since the buyers had not listed the home. So, Gail very professionally handled the entire sale, and most of it while we were driving en route back from the west coast. With dozens of phone calls, faxes, writing up contingencies and handling all negotiations with the Seller, Gail made a relatively complicated deal go through. We have bought and sold 5 different homes. Our experience with Gail, and the entire Belt Team was just superb - professional, knowledgeable, long-time residents and respected in this community, and willing to truly go 'the extra mile'.

We worked exclusively with Mary Jane Perry and received insanely quick responses on just about every need we had. We were first time homebuyers who had done a lot of homework, but Mary Jane was there every step of the way to explain anything we had questions about. She even took time out of her vacation to help us close the deal on our new house, and without her efforts, who knows what house we would be in now? She was very gracious with her time and expertise, and never once left us in the dark. We are very demanding with e-mails and phone calls, asking and calling quite a bit, but Mary Jane never told us it was too much, even encouraging us to continue communicating with her so we were ensured we got exactly what we wanted. -Stephen and Patti We now have our first house with our first agent, and sure enough, it was everything we wanted.

We knew that choosing a Realtor to work with would be one of THE most important steps in the process of selling our home. Especially in today's challenging market, it was important to find somebody who really knows the ups and downs of the local market, and who is professional and completely available to us and our many questions and concerns. Pauline Knipe from The Belt Team has been all of this and much more! As a Realtor, Pauline could not have been more professional and knowledgeable. She promptly responded to our many queries and concerns, and she was full of wonderful advice about how best to prepare our home for marketing. Additionally, Pauline is backed up by a wonderful team. Tara, who works in the office, was expert at staying on top of the administrative paperwork, which is voluminous! The photographer who came to our home was very talented, and cast our home in the best possible light. The brochures, etc., were high-quality and beautifully written. Finally, I know that the people who make up The Belt Team have a very high level of integrity. They do not need to sink to the level of being "sharks" to achieve the best possible outcome. We had two competing offers on our home in a matter two days, and we closed the sale within about 40 days. All this in a 'down' market! I would heartily recommend The Belt Team, and specifically Pauline Knipe, to anybody looking to buy or sell a home.

I was impressed with the Belt Team's general professionalism from start to finish, and with the professionalism of our agent, Pauline Knipe, in particular. Our property was probably one of the least expensive listings on the Belt Team's roster, but we still received first-class service. This meant that anytime we had a question, Pauline responded within minutes. She put our listing onto multiple sites to make sure people would see us, and had a professional photographer take pictures - our house never looked so good! We did have some cosmetic work to do, but Pauline only made suggestions that were in line with our budget. Pauline's pricing and marketing strategy were spot-on, and we accepted an offer within just 5 weeks (no open houses required). We had attempted to sell our place a few years earlier with agents who did none of these things, and the house never sold or really even had viewings. Therefore, I feel pretty confident in attributing our home's sale in a tough market to the professional approach and care of the Belt Team and Pauline Knipe. Less ... More
