Terry Rocks Too!

 Real Estate Agent Terry Belt

A few weeks ago, we were able to brag about Pauline…actually, her clients bragged about her. This week, we received another wonderful letter we’d like to share with you. It’s from a client we recently represented in selling their home in Oakton. Here’s what he had to say:

Dear Terry,

I sincerely appreciate the professional services you provided which resulted in the very timely sale of my residence in Oakton, Virginia. As you know, I interviewed several other listing agents before selecting The Belt Team, and believe your focus in reaching targeted and qualified buyers is a major reason for your success. In a challenging home sales environment, you were able to secure a near full price contract on my house in less than two weeks. As impressive as that was, the follow through guidance we received from The Belt Team to direct inspections and pre-closing events was invaluable.

Thanks very much for making this transaction so easy. The sale of my residence was driven by my need to relocate to Florida for a new job. I can tell you that having the sale of my house taken care of so quickly and professionally made my relocation a lot less stressful.

I wish you continued success and appreciate your efforts on the sale of my property.

We are so proud to get letters like this one from Mark Langer. It’s why we like to say that “The Belt Team Specializes in Success Stories”. Our favorite “success story” is a happy client!  

Pauline Rocks!

We feel very blessed to have one of the best Buyer Agents in the business as a part of The Belt Team. Today, we happened to get both an email and a survey from two different clients Pauline represented. And they say it better than we can. Here’s what they said:


Hello Terry and Alicia,

I wanted to let you know what a great Realtor Pauline has been for us.  I feel fortunate to have worked with her.  She not only helped me find a great house but has helped me with the whole process of transferring.  She spent extra time showing me different areas and schools and continues to help me through the moving in process. I have always gotten immediate responses from her even though I am out of state and she has gone out of her way to do things for me that I could not handle myself from a distance.  I will continue to recommend Pauline and your company whenever I have the chance.

Regards, Amy McShane

(Amy & her husband Bill recently bought a home in Vienna with Pauline & The Belt Team)  


And the Survey Says….

(Responses provided by Ed & Jen Doe who recently bought a home in Oakton with Pauline & The Belt Team): 

Q. What could The Belt Team have done better to aid you in the process?

A. Nothing! Great experience! Thank you Pauline! 

Q. Is there any member of The Belt Team who deserves particular accolades?

A. Yes, Pauline Knipe! What a great resource! She worked hard and was always available to us!

Why Did The Belt Team Move to Keller Williams Realty?


Many of you have asked over the years when we were going to open our own company. Well, the time has come! We are proud, happy & excited to announce that effective April 2008, The Belt Team has joined Keller Williams Realty as partners and owners.
We (and you!) will have the best of both worlds…being a part of the 4th largest real estate brokerage in the world (and the fastest growing) and ownership in the premier, local, flagship office in McLean with a Belt Team Annex office in Vienna/Oakton coming soon.

So, why did The Belt Team choose to move to Keller Williams & how will this benefit you?

1. We have found a company who shares & lives the same values that are held by The Belt Team. The company motto is “God, then Family, then Business.” This is what guides us in serving our clients & is why we put their interests first and we are thrilled to be able to affiliate with a company who  shares our core values.

2. We will be part of a company with the best business model in the industry and a company that is led by industry visionaries who genuinely value the people we serve, not by Boards of Directors, Wall Street shareholders, etc. Unlike traditional brokerages, KW agents are partners in their local office as well as connected nationally. The business model fosters an environment with a cooperative, professional atmosphere that benefits our clients like no other model can!

Because we are Partners (and not just competing agents), our fellow Realtors WANT to sell our listings and WANT to see us succeed. This means they WANT to sell YOUR home and WANT to help us find homes for OUR Buyers.

3. An unsurpassed corporate culture with a great emphasis on training & talent. Many companies talk about magnificent culture & training, but Keller Williams walks the talk. In a market such as ours, it is more vital than ever to be 100% on top of market trends, education, technology, legislative changes & more. Our move to Keller Williams means that we will be able to represent & advise you in a way we never could before.

We pride ourselves on being professional & the top experts in our marketplace. The enhanced support & training we have & will continue to receive will allow us to maintain our leading edge on your behalf. As a result, we are confident our listings will continue to sell faster and at a higher sold-to-list-price ratio than most other Realtors and that we will continue to create Success Stories for all of our Buyer & Seller clients.

If you are looking for a Real Estate Expert in the local marketplace, it would be our pleasure to assist you. Contact The Belt Team at Sales@TheBeltTeam.com

The Belt Bug!

Many of you have asked us what we’re going to do with “The Belt Bug” since we have changed companies. Well, of course we’re keeping it – it’s so much fun to drive around. But see if you can spot the differences. (Maybe your children can help you!) And be sure to wave to Christy or Bill when you seem them driving around town!
