TIRELESS, TENACIOUS, DEDICATED, PROFESSIONAL, EXCEEDS EXPECTATIONS -- just a few of the superlatives that come to mind when I reflect on Kelley Johnson's efforts to get my family into our first home. We were trying to buy a house in some of the most competitive neighborhoods in Northern Virginia  at a time when houses were being sold above asking price after being on the market for less than a week. Further complicating matters, we were living in Florida at the time, so we had only limited opportunities to look at the properties in person. I do not exaggerate -- Kelley must have shown us over 100 houses over the course of six months. Any other realtor would have given up on us, but Kelley was nothing but patient, persistent, and diligent. She picked me up at the airport and drove us all around northern Virginia, often taking us to see 15 houses in a day. If we weren't in the area to see a house that we liked, Kelley would visit the house by herself and send us a narrated video! It was truly a level of service above and beyond anything I could have expected. When we finally found a great house for our family (in a neighborhood we wouldn't have found without Kelley's prompting, by the way), Kelley got our offer accepted well under asking price -- a remarkable feat in such a competitive market. As if this were not enough, we discovered some outstanding permitting issues during the inspection process, which caused us a little stress. Kelley calmly told us she would take care of it -- and she delivered. Kelley worked with the seller's agent, contractors, and the county government to get all issues resolved prior to closing. I was so impressed at and grateful for this level of service -- one would be hard-pressed to find another realtor capable of delivering these results. Kelley is a one of a kind realtor -- a true professional who will go to incredible lengths to get your family into a home you love. Hire her as your realtor -- you'll be glad you did." (September 2018)
"We would highly recommend using Tom Hanton and The Belt Team again! Tom was very knowledgeable and professional at every aspect of the process and The Belt Team helped make everything smooth." (Rachael Bullman September 2018)
"Beth Dadisman and the entire Belt Team were a true pleasure to work with when we sold our home and bought a new home this Spring. Beth was responsive, thorough, professional, and thoughtful. She always had great advice and always was looking out for us through every step of the process. I would highly recommend Beth to anyone." Laura & Steve Perrotta April 2018)‚Äč
"We would highly recommend Kevin Kleifges and the Belt Team. We interviewed a few different realty companies and felt very comfortable with Kevin as he not only had great expertise in real estate but also great familiarity with the Vienna area. His professionalism and responsiveness made the home   selling transaction very smooth especially since we were moving out of town and needed a lot of things to be done remotely. He responded very quickly to every email, text and phone call, gave us great advice, and got us a solid offer even before the house came on market. Thanks for helping us sell our house! (Divya Singh April 2018)
"The expertise of Kevin Kleifges exceeded my expectations. January isn't exactly the best time of year to be selling a house. He knows the Vienna area thoroughly and stays current with similar properties. His advice for making the home attractive to prospective buyers was very valuable. I was especially pleased with his respect for my ideas and his ability to present options in a courteous manner without pressure. He did everything possible to make the sale and final closing go quickly and smoothly." Sarah Davis (April 2018)
"I chose Kevin Kleifges to sell my house because of his close connection to the Vienna area his knowledge of real estate trends and his experience. He came prepared for the interview with six comps, far outshining another realtor I'd interviewed. He was thoughtful going through my house and didn't even discuss a selling price until he'd seriously considered what my property had to offer to a potential buyer and returned for a second visit. He was very thorough, catching a major irregularity in the actual square footage of the house (to my advantage) and saw the potential and possibilities of the property, resulting in a much better marketing plan. These were things the other realtor didn't pick up on at all. He was extremely helpful during the time of preparation for sale, had excellent resources to do the work at very reasonable prices and high-quality workmanship. He kept track of the progress, prepared me for the next steps, was on top of everything. As well, he was respectful of my opinions, even when they were at odds with his, and I valued this very highly. His suggestions were on point and he also proved to be a good listener. Very responsive, as well, to calls and messages...I felt he was deeply invested in me as a client. As a result of all the good work we put into getting the house ready for the market, it sold while still in the "coming soon" phase, with two offers and a ratified contract within 48 hours, for more than the asking price. He proved to be a good negotiator, and aside from all of the other things I like about working him, I want to say that he is also a gentleman with strong ethics. The Team that worked behind the scenes was exceptional as well. I just can't say enough good things about all of them....friendly, knowledgeable, supportive and effective. I have recommended Kevin and the Belt Team to several friends who are thinking of selling and will continue to do so. They are the best!" (Margaret Van Lierde April 2018)
"Terry Belt and his team listed our house and negotiated a price and closure date that were acceptable. We could not ask for more! Terry recommended improvements to our hose to enhance its appeal to potential buyers. These improvements were essential to the sale of the house."  Bill and Nancy McCurdy (March 2018)
"Kevin is an expert in real estate sales. He is always affable, responds to phone calls within minutes, has workers for every challenge, and is very efficient and very effective. We give him the highest recommendation. Joe and Agatha Oertel (Dec 2017)
"I enjoyed working with Tom as he has demonstrated his strong negotiation and interpersonal skills in making connections with potential sellers. He possessed good insight and deep knowledge about the local real estate market and trending and shared with me about pros and cons of the properties of my interest. He was very respectful and understanding when I expressed my differing views when it came to decision points and worked his best to make things happen. I am thankful of his help!" Ying Liu (Dec 2017)
"We worked with Belt Team again for our second home. We are really happy with Kevin and the whole team. Selling and buying home is a very stressful process. Kevin and the whole team made the process much easier. They are very responsive and supportive and worked with us on every step in the whole process. I highly recommend the Belt Team. You can't go wrong with them." Jianlong Zhang (Dec 2017)

"Beth was my realtor and she helped me buy my first home! Beth is knowledgeable, professional, funny, supportive, and patient! She held my hand through out the buying process. She was flexible with my schedule. I am appreciated Patty's quick responses to my questions. She guided me on what I needed to do before the closing on my home and what to expect at the closing day. I highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a home in the DC area to work with Beth and Patty, The Belt Team! Thank you all!" Mariama Souare (Oct 2017)

"Christy and Kevin are the BEST! This is our 2nd house that we have bought with the Belt Team, and it's the first time we sold. Kevin came over to our old house in early July to take a walk through and let us know what to update to make our house sell. He then went to work on finding us a great home in our price range and in the neighborhood we wanted. Kevin's speed, pace, and compassion got our house sold and put us in our forever home. We love Kevin, and would recommend him to friends and family any time. He always puts your interests and wishes FIRST and will not stop until you are in your dream home. He's the BEST!" Ben & Lara Kaplan (Sept 2017)
"Tom was very responsive and with swift replies to any inquiries we had. He was knowledgeable and calm. Reassuring. When the time comes for us to purchase a home, we will definitely come back and use Terry Belt and the team and particularly Tom." Amilyn Escude (Sept 2017)
"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)
"Beth Dadisman, Patty Schuebel and the Belt Team were attentive, knowledgeable and very easy to work with. Beth was very professional, responsive and respectful throughout the whole process. She handled all of my questions by emails, or phone calls in a timely manner. Patty Schuebel provided excellent service. She kept us informed and guided us on every step of the selling process. We would highly recommend Beth and the Belt Team for any future home sales." Yiu & Christina Leung (Aug 2017)
"Can't thank Tom and Patty enough for helping us find our home in Reston. Tom was always responsive, punctual, and motivated to find us the perfect rental property. Moving from overseas was stressful enough, but within just a few weeks, Tom was able to find us an amazing place and the paperwork was easy. Thanks again Tom and Patty for making our move less stressfull!!" Amilyn Escude (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)
"Kevin Kleifges and Patty Schuebel and the Belt Team were top notch! From start to finish, we couldn't be more pleased with both the sale of our home and purchase of our new home in Falls Church, VA!! Initially my husband and I had interviewed three other realtors and had intended to go with one of them. However, after meeting Kevin at an open house in Vienna, he was proactive and followed up immediately. He presented a sound game plan and was knowledgeable and pragmatic, not to mention patient! He was helpful with suggestions to sell our home and was logical in terms of helping us manage expectations for the home we eventually purchased. He was always available to answer questions or talk through details when needed. Kevin is an excellent advocate for his clients and looks out for their best interests. Patty ensured that all the critical details were handled seamlessly throughout the process and the two were a great team. We wholeheartedly recommend them both!" Trish & Jay Visconti (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)
"Beth Dadisman helped me with my home purchase. She was incredibly responsive and very helpful to me in the purchase of my new home. She put together an offer for me on very short notice on a home I did not end up buying and then did it again on another home that I did buy. She and other members of the Belt Team helped me navigate the process up to and including closing so things went very smoothly. I would highly recommend Beth to anyone who is looking for a buyer's agent." Karla de Steuben (June 2017)
"I had a very positive experience working with Beth and Patty while selling my home in Sterling, VA. Beth was wonderful to work with and walked me through every step of the process. The entire staff at Keller Williams was also helpful and great to work with. I would highly recommend Beth and the Belt Team to anyone looking to buy or sell a home." Marie Bernoi (June 2017)
"We had a fabulous experience with Kevin Kleifges of the Belt Team. After spending a year or so visiting neighborhoods across the DC Metro area to figure out where we wanted to live, we finally found Vienna and knew it was where we wanted to raise our family. I interviewed a few agents with the goal of finding someone who knew Vienna inside and out and it was a clear choice to work with Kevin. He was knowledgeable, not pushy, respectful of our budget, and easy going. With Kevin's help we were under contract on the second house we saw - a house he thought we would like that hadn't stood out in the listings. Having an agent based in Vienna made all the difference and and we are so happy we partnered with the Belt Team. Patty Schuebel, the client care manager, is also wonderful to work with and guided us throughout the closing process. Thank you Kevin and the Belt Team!" Bill & Alissa Brenner (May 2017)

"I worked with Beth Dadisman on purchasing my first home. She did a great job walking me through the process and helping me stay optimistic over the few months it took to find what I wanted. She is very experienced and I felt confident that she would help me find a place I loved and she did! I think she was almost as excited as I was when we found it. She was always quick to respond to questions and quick to look at houses I was interested in with me. I definitely recommend working with her - the process was as smooth and easy as buying a house can be." Jenica Hardy (May 2017)

"We worked with Kevin Kleifges and had such an amazing home buying experience. We met Kevin at an open house and he was interested and engaged with us, but not pushy at all, and we felt really comfortable with him. Our budget meant we would be able to find something that met our needs but we'd need to prioritize our wants, and Kevin spent a whole day initially going out to see properties with us just to get a feel for what we would like. He always asked questions to review and prioritize what we saw, and helped us figure out exactly what we wanted. Then Kevin contacted us about a property he had found out about that hadn't gone on the market yet. At first when he took us to see it, my husband liked it but I wasn't sure. But I couldn't stop thinking about the property, and kept going to drive by it. There was something about it that felt so right. Kevin seemed to have such a good feel for what we'd like, even before we knew we liked it! He knows Vienna so well, and really understood the feel I wanted in a neighborhood. And he respected our budget and never tried to push us above it. In fact, the house he found us was well below our budget, allowing us to put work into it to really make it our own. I so appreciate that, since often times people who are paid a sales percentage might be more inclined to stretch our budget to make more. Overall, Kevin was so great to work with. He found us our perfect little home, and we feel so lucky that we never had to deal with the craziness of the Vienna bidding wars since he found it before it went on the market. We would highly recommend him to anyone beginning their home search!" Hilary & Brenton Flynn (April 2017)
"My husband and I were referred to the Belt Team (and a few other realtors) in the area by our mortgage lender. After interviewing three realtors, we chose Beth Dadisman of the Belt Team because she listened to us. I had sent her a VERY long email about what we were looking for and she actually showed us houses that matched our preferences. We felt that she would help us find a home that fit into OUR budget - and not try to push us into something more expensive. She did not disappoint. Even in a tough sellers' market, Beth helped us navigate the ups and downs of buying our first home. She never wavered in her dedication to find us the perfect home - she wanted to see happiness on our faces. As we searched for our home, Beth guided us with questions to get to the root of what things we really wanted in a home/area and what wasn't that important to us. After losing a house (due to 7 other offers) in a neighborhood we adored, Beth remained positive about finding something we loved even more. Again, she did not disappoint. We ended up finding a home in that same neighborhood that we LOVE! She was highly responsive, professional and respectful throughout the whole process. She was a strong negotiator and advocate for us - and made this process enjoyable. The Belt Team was on top of their deadlines, gave clear instructions and the closing went super smoothly. We would highly recommend Beth and the Belt Team for any future home sales/purchases. THANK YOU!" Amy Abbott (April 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)
"Kevin Kleifges is a realtor rock star - we love his down-to-earth style, and we are confident in his abilities. You won’t regret contacting him. We decided to casually browse open homes in Vienna, and Kevin was the very first realtor and listing we saw at 1PM on a Sunday. He was easy-going and approachable – with heavy “cool dad” vibes. Further, he had substantive comments for us as first-time home buyers, and he had also prepared a very thorough packet about the home he was listing – in addition to the usual photos and MRIS sheet, it had a maintenance/renovation history as well as other sheets. We thanked him for our time and visited over ten homes and realtors, and we concluded that Kevin made us feel the most comfortable. With that in mind, we opted to work with him, which was easy peasy no retainer needed. Kevin is thorough and methodical. Regardless of the home we looked at, he would first inspect the systems, ball park their age, and listen to our feedback. We had a very specific set of requirements, but he respected our opinions and did not bombard us with listing after listing. Even when we were ready to pounce, he reigned us in by first informing us of comps before we moved. Kevin helped us gain the upper edge in the hot real estate market through information gathering – he established early rapport with the listing agent of the home we ultimately purchased to gauge the competitive landscape, helping us time and price our offer accordingly. Now that the house is closed an done, Kevin and I still chat every now and then, in fact we’re (somewhat distant) neighbors! From what I gather, Kevin’s Belt Team mostly lives in Vienna, sometimes selling homes just blocks away from theirs – this intimate connection with the neighborhood gives them the edge if you are targeting the Oakton-Vienna-McLean corridor" (April 2017
"My wife and I worked with Beth Dadisman of the Belt Team and we simply could not recommend anyone higher. From the onset it was first-class professionalism and expertise with Beth. We were first-time home buyers and Beth was masterful in her ability to hold our hands through the process. She was responsive, answered all our questions (again and again...and again) and best of all, gave us insightful opinions and answers to questions and scenarios we didn't even know to ask (and believe me, we did a LOT of research). Beth's expertise really came into play in both identifying the right home in the right neighborhood (we have two children, one elementary and one high school) and helped us factor in really minute details like commute times (and access to less congested side streets); shopping; and so much more. Also worth noting that the Belt Team and their years of experience in this market have allowed them to make meaningful relationships with all the additional service providers of the home buying experience (home inspectors; banks; title companies; etc). We felt very comfortable with Beth and would most certainly recommend her and the Belt Team!" James & Cindy Peet (March 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)
"I can't recommend The Belt Team highly enough. Tom Hanton, our salesperson, was thorough and honest, and really knew the market. He was also kind and patient, as was everyone that I worked with on the team. They did a great job of making our dreams come true." Mike Horner (Dec 2016)
"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)
"Kevin and the rest of the Belt Team did a great job helping me through a recent downsizing. Kevin's recommendations on improvements and pricing were spot-on and the contractors were reasonably priced and did good, expedient work. Highly recommended!" Mike Wingo (Nov 2016)
"We were very impressed with our realtor's responsiveness and expertise. We ended up buying a home we are very satisfied with and it took much less time than we expected!" Carly & Nick Sfregola (Nov 2016)
"Tom Hanton did an excellent job. We live in another state, and thought it would be very difficult to sell our condo being so far away. But Tom made listing and closing simple. He was there when we couldn't be, and got our property sold in 17 days! Thank you Tom! Definitely recommend him." Walt & Abby Dozier (Oct 2016)
"Tom and Beth were a terrific team to work with. They were extraordinarily patient and accommodating in showing us houses, allowing us to take our time in finding a place without any pressure and making themselves available on short notice when we wanted to move quickly to see a house. Beth showed us 7-10 houses at a time on several occasions as we tried to narrow down neighborhoods and styles. They also both previewed houses ahead of us to save us time so we could only see the ones that would potentially meet our requirements. Beth and Tom were also really helpful in assisting us in narrowing down which areas would best suite our needs, talking through commute times, school choices, and neighborhood amenities. They were extremely knowledgeable on the areas we were looking at and excellent at giving us a sense of value over time. Tom was adept at negotiating the contract price so we got a fabulous deal. He also helped us navigate two challenging home inspection negotiations. The first house fell through because we couldn’t reach agreement on home repairs needed before purchase, despite Tom’s very effective engagement on our behalf. Tom was excellent at keeping us updated and talking us through options and concerns. He and Beth were quick to help us get back out and find a house quickly after the first one fell through on home inspection. Tom was able to negotiate a contract on a different house that was probably an even better deal and then ensuring that needed repairs were made by the sellers post home inspection. It required quite a bit of effort and follow up on his part, and he was diligent in looking out for our interests. Patty was highly responsive when she stepped in after the contract was written to ensure we knew key dates and next steps and had everything lined up for closing. Overall, we couldn’t have asked for more and would highly recommend the team to others." Jen & Dan (Oct 2016) 
"Tom helped us find our first home in Fairfax!!! Tom was exceptionally patient with us, very accommodating and always available on a very short notice to show us the homes, some of which we visited multiple times. He was always responsive at any time of the day.. The entire process of choosing a house, negotiating and closing the deal couldn't have been smoother... Many thanks to Tom and The Belt Team!!!"  Rachna Shetty & Nimit Sha (Oct 2016)
"We were so impressed by the knowledge, expertise, and the responsiveness of The Belt Team. Tom Reilly was fantastic to work with and after a long, diligent process he found the perfect home for us. Tom was always on time when meeting with us, was super responsive at any hour of the day and week, and was extremely well prepared in negotiating with the seller when it came time to close. If Tom was busy or out of town, Beth kindly stepped in his place to show us properties in the area. Patty was very organized and helped walk us through every step of the process from offer to close. The Belt Team made us feel a part of their family and are now VERY HAPPY homeowners!!" Ryan & Kayla Williams (Oct 2016)
"Two times in the past we have counted on Tom Reilly and Patty with the Terry Belt & The Belt Team, Keller Williams Realty, McLean, VA to help us with our real estate needs and each time they have done an incredible job in helping us bring to a successful close all our real estate transactions. And so when it was time to sell our home this year, we went right back to Tom and Patty. And this time too, they did an incredible job throughout the entire process. It began with the planning phase when Tom did a walk-thru of the house and advised us on what we needed to do to fix the house in order to attract buyers. Thereafter he organized multiple Open House events to show the house and guided us during the negotiating and Inspection stages. Tom and Patty even located the right tradesmen to help us with fixing all the required inspection-identified repairs to the satisfaction of the buyers. And Tom was present at the Settlement. In essence he was there for us from start to finish. Tom and Patty constantly communicated with us during this entire process and were very supportive. For all of this and more they truly deserve a 5 star rating and we are now counting on them to help us sell another home. They are a credit not only to themselves but also to Terry Belt & The Belt Team of Keller Williams Realty." Sebastian & Cathleen Phillip (Oct 2016)
"We found our dream home! We had a previous contract fall through in another neighborhood, so we decided to reach out to The Belt Team -- our buyers agents Tom and Beth did not disappoint! We were able to see our house the first day it hit the market and had a contract within 48 hours. Being first time home buyers in Virginia, Tom and Patty could not have made the settlement process easier for us. Now that we have settled in, we can truly appreciate the local insight - our Vienna neighborhood is FANTASTIC! I would never hesitate to recommend The Belt Team to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Fairfax" Seth & Jenna Roy (Sept 2016)
"Kevin Kleifges of the Belt Team represented me and my wife in the sale of our Falls Church, VA home.  Kevin embodied the qualities that I believe are extremely important for a realtor to have.  He was professional, understanding, logical and displayed outstanding negotiating skills throughout the process.  Our house needed updating and Kevin's expertise led to a prudent plan involving minimal staging and interior renovations.  He followed up promptly after all realtor showings and communicated through emails, texts and phone calls quickly to update us, always making sure to understand the feedback from potential buyers.  He didn't do this to go through the motions, though.  Kevin used the feedback to make recommendations for changes to the home, or reducing the listing price.  He clearly shined during the negotiating process, working with the ultimate buyer's agent to come to a very acceptable agreement on home repairs.  I'm convinced that Kevin's ability to deal with other agents and positively sell the attributes of our home led ultimately to a very strong offer which we accepted.  Most of all Kevin made us feel comfortable with his confidence and warmth and once we had a solid offer he worked tirelessly to nail down the terms and close the transaction quickly.  I enthusiastically recommend Kevin for his work ethic, consummate selling skills and ability to strongly advocate for his clients.  In the end, it was Kevin's unwavering confidence in his ability to get our home sold and comforting words that bolstered us as we went through the stresses and discomfort that goes along with selling a home." Rich & Jenn Bacherman (Sept 2016)
"We were very fortunate to have Kevin Kleifges and The Belt Team help us sell our home in Vienna, VA. From the very beginning we were given a timeline to prepare the house for the market and clear ideas of what to expect. Kevin and his team were always willing to talk with us about any questions and concerns we had about the process. We utilized a staging team recommended by Kevin and they were great. They brought in some pieces to help accent the home but I was amazed at just how much of my own stuff they used to highlight the home. This team was professional and very creative. While the house was on the market Kevin would have open houses as often as he thought was appropriate, follow up with all clients and give us written feedback from each perspective buyer. We always felt like we were in the loop on what was happening. Kevin grew up in Vienna. This was one of the reasons we went with him as our realtor. He knows this community and is well known in this community which allows a perspective that was beneficial. We cannot thank Kevin, Patty and the rest of The Belt Team enough for their help in selling our home." Chris & Ann Ostapovicz (Sept 2016)
"We used the Belt Team when relocating from Dayton, Ohio to Herndon, VA. Gail put us in touch with Beth and Tom to begin our house search. Eventually, we also used Patty, also easy to work with, for the final stages of our purchase. We spent most of our searching time touring homes with Beth and were impressed with her ability to include homes offering what we were looking for. Her wonderful easy-going, no pressure personality put us at ease.The entire team was always courteous, friendly and professional throughout our complete experience. Tom was present and helpful during inspections and the team was diligent in their follow-up with all details. They worked well with us as buyers but also with the sellers too. We highly recommend them to others with the greatest of confidence! Thanks for everything and for finding us the perfect home!", Lisa & Ted Singer (Sept 2016)
"We could not imagine a better Real Estate agent! Tom was truly amazing. He was always available – every day of the weak, at the same time very flexible and always willing to help. Tom called, emailed, and texted regularly, even when he was on vacation. He fought for us at every step of the process - from the initial showing to the closing. Tom is a smart and prudent negotiator, with huge hands-on experience and market knowledge. Thanks to his advice, we made an excellent deal – the price was remarkably below bank’s appraisal. He made the whole process very smooth for us and coordinated all the elements of home inspection very efficiently. His exemplary cooperation with our loan officer saved us a lot of stress and effort. Moreover Tom has a great personality – warm and cheerful, sincere and unbelievably reliable. We still keep in our fridge a bottle of champagne that we got from Tom at the closing – we will open it together with him when we move in." Remi Urbanowski (Sept 2016)
"Great attention to detail! Tom Hanton helped with every aspect of the process, he even helped me load up storage to clear the house for an open house! He made it easy. The entire team was friendly and responsive." Maureen H (September 2016)
"Kristina was very professional and attentive. She made me feel like I was her most important client. She located numerous properties which met my requirements and went the extra mile helping me through the necessary paperwork to secure the property. Thanks Kristina, you made finding a new home in DC a great experience. I love coming home to my condo!" Mark Miller (August 2016)
"We posted our house on the market April this year, the hottest season for the housing market with other agents first. It did not go well, after two months, the house was still sitting there without any contract. I was very worried. After a friend’s recommendation, I turned to Kevin and asked him for help. Kevin and his team (Patty) provided excellent service and professionalism. He gave us many valuable suggestions, and guided us through step by step; my house was sold in less than three weeks with Kevin. Kevin was sincere and helpful from beginning to the end; he worked hard to get the job done and was extremely responsive and easy to work with. I would always definitely recommend Kevin to all of my family members and friends." Ying Jiang (August 2016)
"Kevin Kleifges represented us in selling a condo in Vienna, VA. Kevin arranged for excellent staging, pursued all leads, and gave strong advice when a first buyer failed to close. Two days later he had a new, excellent contract. Kevin and staff were wonderfully responsive, always getting back to us by text, email, or a telephone call." Arnie Podgorsky (Aug 2016)
"Tom and his team worked very hard with my boyfriend and I to help us find our perfect first home! We decided to work with the Belt Team after attending their first time home buying seminar, when we knew they were the obvious best choice! We originally were set on living in Arlington, but because of Tom's great expertise of the area we decided to live a little further out and found exactly what we were looking for! Tom helped us every step of the way and made the process a smooth one. I highly recommend the Belt Team and will certainly be using them again in the future!" Jace Howanitz (July 2016)
"Tom and Patty did an excellent job helping me get my home on the market and then bringing the right buyer to the table to purchase my home. Tom took the time to walk through the home and suggest a few changes to make my home more presentable to a potential buyer." Greg Sullivan (July 2016)
“I recently used the Belt Team to buy my first home. The process was great and we were able to close in a timely manner. Tom was very attentive to showing us the houses we were interested in & with presenting our offer, which was accepted. The entire Belt Team sent emails and phone calls to keep everyone in the loop with the inspection, closing requirements, etc. Overall great experience!!" Richard Jones & Elizabeth Matteson (July 2016)
"Tom and his team worked very hard with my wife and I to find exactly what we needed in our price range. They had immense knowledge of the area and the process, and were very responsive and eager to answer the many questions we had (as first time home buyers). I highly recommend The Belt Team without reservation." Joe Piscaretta (May 2016)
"Kevin Kleifges, from The Belt Team, did a great job helping us to sell our home. He was always available/responsive and did a great job of handling a VERY ignorant buyer. For example, the buyer wanted us to hire a certified professional to check our tightening of a loose faucet and a disconnected drain plug. Kevin and his team ensured we did not need to go through this very needless exercise." Steven Shiraishi (May 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 :) " Tom & Vicki 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)
"Beth Dadisman and Tom Reilly were fantastic to work with.  Their "no pressure" sales and patience were second to none.  They were available at our convenience and answered any questions that we had.  They made our home buying experience FUN!! Once we had a contract, Patty Schuebel and The  Belt   Team's behind-the-scenes personnel took over to make the process of getting from contract to closing simple.  They provided us with a wealth of "what to expect" information and kept us up informed every step of the way. We were also 100% satisfied with all the colleagues The Belt Team works with, i.e., lender, home inspector, and title company." Amy Roman (April 2016)
"Terry and The Belt Team are great.  Tom Reilly was always patient, courteous, helpful and knowledgeable.  Tom used his experience to help navigate the Northern Virginia Real Estate market successfully! Truly enjoying my new home! Thank you!" Glenn D (March 2016)
"The Belt Team was great. Tom Hanton and Patty did a wonderful job. We could not say enough good things about them! We were first time home sellers, and they walked us through the process with ease. Our realtor Tom was extremely knowledgeable, organized, and a pleasure to work with. Tom Hanton and the Belt Team were extremely personable and patient, and I strongly recommend them to anyone! Working with Tom Hanton and Patty Schuebel was nothing less than stellar. All the hard work they put in paid off and my house went under in 24 hours. Thanks guys!" David Jackson, (March 2016)
"Kevin and The Belt Team are as good as it gets. After researching, we chose Kevin and the whole process of selling our home was done with complete professionalism. Any question we threw at him was answered matter of factly.. He knows the Northern Virginia area very well and helped us get the house ready for sale with great patience. Great Realtor, entrepreneur and super person to work with!" Tiina Doyan (Feb 2016)
"Tom Reilly and Beth Dadisman were wonderful to work with in the search for my dream home. Their seamless teamwork meant that someone was always available to answer my questions, gather information for me, and show me homes. Once I found the perfect home and had a contract, Patty Schuebel and The Belt Team's behind-the-scenes folks jumped into action. The process of getting from contract to closing couldn't have been easier for me; this team is extremely experienced and has a finely honed process that made me feel comfortable and confident every step of the way. I was also extremely impressed with all of the partners The Belt Team works with. Lender, home inspector, title company and even home improvement contractors -- all recommendations were excellent. It was obvious that these were professional relationships honed over years of working together. And everyone had the same goal: getting me into my new home. Thank you Belt Team!" Donna Hurwitt (Feb 2016)
"Tom and Beth were a great team in supporting our family in our search for a new home. They understood our needs and helped make sure we were seeing homes that met our key criteria. They were patient, as we took about 2 years to settle on a home that we loved, and were never pushy to put an offer in. The best complement I can give is that over the course of our time with them, they really helped us (through conversations and advice) figure out exactly what house we wanted.. down to the features of the house, neighborhood, etc... And, while we were frustrated waiting for it to come, when it did show up, we had a contract on it in less than 24 hrs - and that's thanks to both of their efforts to make sure we didn't lose it. We hope to be in this house for years and years --- but if we were to ever move, we know exactly where to go to get great help. This wasn't our first house, but their knowledge of the area, the schools, etc.. was fantastic. I would recommend the Belt Team to new buyers and experienced buyers alike. Not pushy, but not distant. Always making themselves available to help. Thanks again for putting us in our dream house! We still feel so happy to have found it --- 6 months later! " Cyrus & Candita Sabavala (Feb 2016)

"My wife and I recently worked The Belt Team, and in particular with Tom Reilly and Beth Dadisman. As this was our first home purchase, we had no idea what to expect going in, but we really couldn't have had a better experience. Tom and Beth helped us every step of the way, from narrowing down our search to finding the right home to guiding us through the closing process. Tom is a Northern Virginia native and is extremely knowledgeable about the neighborhoods in the area, which helped us greatly to focus our search. We always felt like Tom and Beth were on our side--they never pushed us toward a specific house or neighborhood, but always provided honest answers to any of our questions and added value by pointing out things that we, as first time home buyers, wouldn't think about when looking at homes. We looked at a decent number of houses, and Tom and Beth were readily available whenever we asked to tour a home--we would always get a response within a few hours and they were always willing to work around our schedules to show us a house. After we found our home, Tom and the team helped us navigate the closing process--daunting for any home buyer--and prepared a checklist of all the things that needed to happen between signing the contract and closing, which was fantastic. Even after signing the contract, Tom worked with the sellers on a few issues that popped up before closing, resolving all of them in our favor and within a day. Finally, Tom attended our closing and even brought us a bottle of champagne to celebrate, which was truly a nice touch. If you're thinking of purchasing a home in the Northern Virginia area, there's really no other choice than The Belt Team." Ian & Lauren Forbes (Nov 2015)

"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 luck as you progress through the selling process.  I know that if you choose Terry and The Belt Team you will be happy. Good luck and please let me know if you have any other questions." Tina Wickham (Nov 2015)

"Going into the home purchasing process my husband and I both felt very overwhelmed trying to find a good reliable buyer’s agent to guide us through the process as first time home buyers. Given the number of realtors in the area the process of finding a good reliable agent was daunting. We lucked out in the end and were referred to the Belt Team by CU Realty. Words cannot express how lucky we both feel to have been referred to the Belt Team, most especially to Tom Reilly. We got not only a realtor but an adviser with incredible knowledge about not only the buying process but the local area. Tom also took a keen interest in our specific needs and from the get go it was very apparent that we were more than just another set of faces. He was always honest with us, and never tried to push or rush us. When we didn't get the first house we put an offer on Tom was extremely fast to get us back to looking at homes, and this is where the Belt Team really shined. Even though he was busy Tom was able to have Beth Dadisman meet with us to view a few more houses. Beth was just as knowledgeable and attentive as Tom. Once we made a decision on the second house, the process went smoothly. Tom provided great information on putting the offer in and in guiding us through the home buying process. Tom, Beth, and Patty Schuebel did an amazing job of answering all of our questions, advocating for us, and ensuring the entire process went off without a hitch. The Belt Team absolutely made the process, even as a first time buyer, seamless and smooth. I can't imagine how much harder this would have been without them. They have earned our business for life." Mary Wheeler (Oct 2015)

"I want to give my highest recommendation to Kevin Kleifges for his work in selling my house. It ws not an easy sale, as it had a pool and was listed in late summer. Every issue that rose up, Kevin was able to deal with and keep the sale alive. Patty Schuebel also helped the settlement go smoothly. Thanks to you both." Kyle Whitney (Oct 2015)

"Worked with Tom Reilly and Beth Dadisman and couldn't have been more pleased. Both were very responsive and professional and helped me become a first time home owner. From first meeting to signing all the paperwork at closing, I would highly recommend this Team." Rich Sibly (Sept 2015)

"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. " Frank & Pat Van Roten (July 2015)

"If you want to sell your house quickly, at the right price, and armed with an expert negotiator and advocate, you need the services of Kevin Kleifges and the Belt Team. I trust that most realtors can lead you through the pro forma processes and procedures for selling a house, but I believe that very few have the knowledge of real estate laws and practices and the wherewithal to fight for your rights and equities like Mr. Kleifges has. If you know that your real estate transaction can be handled by virtually anyone licensed to do so, any realtor will probably do. However, if you want to be prepared for any eventuality, difficulty, or challenge that may unexpectedly arise while trying to sell your house, you need the professional services of Mr. Kleifges and the Belt Team. We unhesitatingly signed with Mr. Kleifges to sell our house in northern Virginia based on the outstanding reputation and track record of the Belt Team. He proved to be the consummate real estate professional – fully knowledgeable about the marketplace, pricing, and selling techniques. The staff of the Belt Team regularly supported Mr. Kleifges and provided us with additional information and help throughout the selling process. Mr. Kleifges was always available to my wife and me and promptly answered our queries and offered guidance as appropriate. Unfortunately our buyer was ostensibly ignorant of our real estate laws, culture, and mores and tried to extort thousands of dollars from us at the closing table. On our behalf, Mr. Kleifges expertly handled this challenge – tirelessly throughout a very long day – and negotiated an acceptable settlement to both parties, which enabled my wife and me to purchase our new home in a different location on time. During the selling process, we encountered numerous unprofessional, incompetent real estate agents so we are very grateful that we enjoyed the ultimate in service from Mr. Kleifges and the Belt Team at all times." Vienna Home Seller, July 2015

“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.” Adriana Sgarlata, July 2015

"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.” Kerry Tucker (July 2015)

"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." Swati Patwardhan and Ash Athawale (June 2015)

"As first time buyers we really appreciated that Tom Reilly respected all of our questions, no matter how elementary. If he didn't have the answer, he got it for us, ASAP. We worked with another agent earlier in our home search, and Tom was much more attentive and helpful!" Heather & Doug Roemer (June 2015)

"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." Cara & Ben Libby (June 2015)

"Kevin Kleifges and his team did a great job selling our home. Kevin was always available on his mobile and would guide us through strategic, transactional, and unexpected situations with humility and calmness. The support team that works with you out of the office was excellent, and the photos and marketing materials were first class. This team rules Vienna!” Jarod & Kadie Blaney (June 2015)

“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.” Jeff Hyman & Elly Bookstein, June 2015

"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 conducted 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.” Wes Kriebel (April 2015)

"Tom Reilly was awesome! I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking for a buyer's agent! Everything was thoroughly explained as we went through the buying process. If an e-mail or cell phone call was sent, it was answered immediately. He truly provides a valuable service and most definitely makes the daunting process of home buying much easier." Mitch Curling (February 2015)

"Kevin and Patty rock! They've done an excellent job marketing and selling our house. We were impressed with their knowledge of market and professional skills. Many thanks to them and to the whole Belt Team for excellent service!" Inna Dubinsky (Feb 2015)

“I bought my first home with Kevin and his team several years ago and now have sold my first home with them as well. I had a great experience working with them and highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Kevin and Patty produced quick results and made me comfortable through the whole process. They were very knowledgeable and helpful the entire time. All in all, it was a very positive experience for me. ” Paul Meszaros (January 2015)

"Kevin Kleifges, Patty Schuebel, and the rest of The Belt Team were outstanding when we sold our Reston house. 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." Drake & Jackie Byrum (December 2014)

"Terry and his team exceeded our expectations on every level. They made what is typically a very stressful process very smooth and painless. The Belt Team truly provides one stop shopping from listing to staging and photography; to buying and moving and even including excellent title company and lender referrals! We wouldn't change a thing and are grateful for their outstanding customer service and responsiveness." April Carroll, December 2014

“Kevin Kleifges was absolutely outstanding to work with. This was our first time looking for a home to own and he really guided and took all of our requests and preferences to heart. he made sure all of our worries were alleviated from day one and we couldn't have asked for a better agent to work with!” Ben & Lara Kaplan ( November 2014)

“Terry is extremely knowledgeable about the market and trends. He's savvy, and a great negotiator. Terry is definitely on top of his game. He's not one of the best...he IS THE BEST Realtor I've worked with and and his team is awesome and on point.” Gloria Dutch, October 2014

“I would highly recommend Terry. He recently sold our house in 9 days. He's very accessible and knowledgeable, and we really enjoyed working with him. Patty is also wonderful--very nice and quick to answer all of our questions, big or small !” Kristin Dillon, Sept 2014

"Terry and The Belt Team worked closely with our corporate relocation team and sold our home within days of listing. The listing strategy was well thought out and resulted in us actually selling above asking price and at the top end of the range we identified as target value based on relevant local comparators. Terry and the team managed a complex set of contract coordination issues between our relocation services company and the buyer, and were very attentive throughout the process. Would not hesitate to recommend Terry and the Belt team for real estate services in the Oakton area." Pat & Wendy Brown, August 2014

"Kevin and Patty were wonderful throughout the whole process. We appreciated Kevin's expertise, his straightforward manner, his accessibility, and his willingness to listen to our perspective as sellers. Patty was amazing behind the scenes, always answering any and all inquiries in a knowledgeable and timely fashion and making sure we were well-informed what to expect next in the process." Erica Wanis (August 2014)

"My husband and I had a very positive experience with the Belt Team - specifically with Kevin Kleifges, our agent. We were new to the area and did not have an agent to work with. We met numerous agents at open houses over the course of a couple of months until we met Kevin and felt that he was a great fit for us - professional, knowledgeable on the neighborhoods we were looking at and a good listener (not trying to push us into homes above our budget or not a good fit for us). He was patient and reliable throughout the entire process of finding our new home. Kevin was a pleasure to work with and I would definitely recommend him and the Belt Team." Jennifer Gelosa (July 2014)

"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. The Belt Team approach also was wonderful: we were fully supported when Kevin had out of town commitments and Patty was a great help with logistics." Mary Pat Denney (July 2014)

"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!" Bob Gadd, July 2014

"The listing was handled very well and Patty and the team made a great brochure. We were able to get advice on the 2 offers we received the first day and make a good move. They also helped us with the paperwork for our unlisted purchase of a home. Thanks!" Sally LaBonte, June 2014

"Terry Belt and his team were exceptional. From the first meeting, I recognized the expertise in knowing the area, pricing, comps, advice on what to do to get the most for our house, and true professionalism. Terry is highly knowledgeable and knows what he is doing. There is so much to do and it can be very overwhelming to the seller. Terry's team, particularly Patty, was on top of everything, keeping us informed, and moving us along in the process. On top of the fact that Terry sold our house before it even went on the market, he is a wonderful person who was a pleasure to work with." Denise & Bob Ford, June 2014

"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." Patty Hanley, June 2014

"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. You are the best "Team" ever!" Claire & Aimee Fountaine, June 2014

"My home buying experience with the Belt Team could not have been more favorable. Kevin and the rest of the staff did a great job keeping me informed throughout the process and I would definitely recommend their services to family and friends looking for a professional, dedicated and trustworthy team of real estate service providers." Pat Naher (May 2014)

"My wife and I were looking for a family house in Vienna and although we had a very precise idea of what we wanted, I am not sure we were very good at describing it. Kevin Kleifges at the Belt Team was an absolute pleasure to work him. Kevin was always in a good mood, friendly and punctual. My wife and I couldn't be happier with the service we received. Kevin found us the dream home in no time and negotiations over the couple of issues found with the new house went so smoothly thanks to Kevin's skills. We also dealt with Patty Schuebel as the Belt Team at the end of the process and she was also excellent." Fred Ulmer & Clare Plaisted (May 2014)

"Working with Gail meant working with a consummate professional. She was tireless, detailed, expert. I was an out-of-town seller, and among her standout qualities were: - Constant and thorough communication. - Knowledge of the market and our direct competition. - Instinct about buyers, their agents, their perceptions, their positions. - Superior negotiating ability. I'd also like to recognize the contributions of Patty who exhibited the attention to detail, focus, and excellent communications which are hallmarks of The Belt Team." Tom Cline May 2014

My husband and I would like to personally thank Terry Belt and the Belt Team! We couldn't have been happier with our choice to use Terry in selling and purchasing a new home. Terry’s excellent service, frequent communication, professionalism and dependability, made the sale process so much easier for us. He went above and beyond for us and we can’t thank him enough. We would highly recommend Terry and The Belt Team to anyone buying or selling their home in Northern VA. ”  Kyle & Susannah Porteous (Posted on Feb 11, 2014)

Smile "Your aggressive, highly professional and proactive marketing approach served us very well in the sale of our former home and the purchase of our newly constructed home.

Your thoroughness, follow-through and attention to detail were absolutely mind-boggling. You are without a doubt in a class by yourself. It is not hard to understand why you are so well thought of by your peers."

Smile "In record time you sold our rental house, led us to settlement of our new dream home, and listed our old house for sale! The professional way that all transactions were handled really impressed me. I was impressed even more, however, by your honesty, kindness, and strong sense of values. The Belt Team is wonderful. I loved getting to work with your husband and children, Christy and Terry. It is the small touches that make your team so special. I know you have been honored with many well-deserved real estate awards. Your greatest accomplishment is the wonderful family that you and your husband have raised, and the values you are living and passing on in your work and family life."

Smile  "Your service to me was superb! Your professionalism enabled me to trust in your integrity and competence; and you continued to assist me beyond the making of the sale with details that were not directly related to that sale. I feel very well served and I wish there were more people in this world who applied professionalism with the same understanding and commitment as yours."
