About

 

Personal

Imagine living in one of the most beautiful areas in the state, now let me help.

I am a native of Guilford Connecticut and know the neighboring towns on Branford, North Branford, Madison and Clinton like the back of my hand.

My expertise is in Energy-efficiency with a love of Eco-friendly homes.

So that I could better serve my clients in 2015 I received from The National Association of Realtors the coveted Green Designation. I continued my studies later with The U.S. Green Building Council and in 2016 was awarded the GPRO Certificate in Fundamentals of Building Green and Operations & Maintenance Essentials

I am able to get the most for your Eco- Friendly homes because I know how to market them. In short when a homes is Eco-Friendly, it can be described in more words than just "Green", but also "Low Maintenance, Energy-Efficient, better ventilation, More Comfortable, Smart design, and yes, Environmentally Responsible living.

I graduated from the Guilford High School in 1985, received my BA in International Marketing from George Washington University in Washington, DC and my MBA from Catholic University in Leuven, Belgium. My career has included extensive work in the internet marketing industry in New York City, Warsaw, Prague and Manchester, England.

In 2011, I returned to Connecticut to be closer to my family and life-long friends. My interest in real estate combined with his experience in marketing and the internet makes me a consummate Realtor. "I love being home again, and being able to help my customers and clients buy and sell property is very rewarding to me. I especially appreciate handling antique homes and I feel privileged to live in an area where so many abound."

Whether looking for your first home or looking to downsize, whether thinking of a condo or a waterfront getaway, I am ready to share my knowledge of real estate with you and to make sure your experience is seamless and beyond your expectations.

Professional Association

I am very active in several environmental associations such as U.S. Green Building Council and the the Green Resource Council; both dealing with the importance of sustainable buildings and homes.

I was trained in understanding what makes a property green, helping clients evaluate the cost/benefits of green building features and practices, distinguishing between industry rating and classification systems, listing and marketing green homes and buildings, discussing the financial grants and incentives available to homeowners, and helping consumers see a property's green potential.

NAR's Green Designation was developed in response to growing consumer awareness of the benefits of resource-efficient homes and buildings. The designation helps consumers who care about energy efficiency and sustainable building practices identify REALTORS® who can help them realize their green real estate and lifestyle goals.

Education

I am a life long lover of learning. I am most proud of being one of 4,000 agents national with the GREEN designation. GREEN was very important for me because it is more than just saving money on your power bill or helping the environment but also making sure your home is as comfortable as possible.

"Comfort" in the GREEN designation sense is about having a tight home with no drafts, manageable temperatures both hot and cold, clean air, void of dust and mold ensuring a healthier family.

What Clients Are Saying

"My son is on the autistic specrum. Rob Carter sold his home and helped find him a new one. Rob was extremely sensative to Ken's disability."
Raymond Epstein (Guilford, CT)

"Was looking for homes past few years and then saw perfect house for me so I contacted Rob and he met me there along with sellers agent. Put a bid in that day and closed May 1st. Rob made everything go smoothly. Much appreciated. Rob's the best thanks again."
Gary Pellegrino (EAST HAVEN, CT)

Rob Carter has been very helpful in our decision to rent our condo since the housing market is so poor in our area and we could not find a buyer. Rob walked us through the process and made it as simple as possible.
We were not sure we wanted to be "landlords" as we always owned our own homes but Rob assured us it would all work out for the best, which it did.
Rob negotiated a rental price that we could live with and cover all our costs related to our home.
In the future if we have friends or family moving we would highly recommend Rob Carter's services as he kept his appointments, collected the deposits and made the financial end of the move out of state much easier.
Rob went out of his way to help us out and we are sincerely appreciative of all his hard work.
Cathy and Bill
Bill Barone (Guilford)

"Rob was a huge help in us getting a rent 2 years ago. Now we are excited about him helping us find a home to buy."
Nate Huntington (Deep River)

"Robert paid extremely close attention to the details of the MLS listing so that when something was not in the house at closing, he made sure everything was made right."
Ralph Kaufman (Old Saybrook)

"I needed to down-size but wanted to stay in Guilford and Robert sold our house and got us into a beautiful 2 bedroom on a lake, what beautiful sunsets! Not easy to buy and sell in one day, but I never worried, I always knew he had it under control."
Deb Youngblood (Guilford)

"I wish to tell you how pleased we were with Rob Carter. He helped us all the way in selling our home on Maple Street in Branford and buying our new home across town. He was there when we needed him, even when we had to move everything on the day of our buy / sell. We can not say enough good things about him.
Sincerely,
William and Patrica

"Rob, was friendly, patient, attentive, we never felt pressured by him. He worked with us for a long while before we sold in North Carolina."
John Fike (EAST HAVEN, CT)

"When we needed to sell my aunt's home Robert came in and showed us just what renovations to do. The house looked great and sold fast and for more than I thought we would ever get."
Robin Zingone Riveira (Guilford)

"Rob Carter was my agent when I bought my current home. He was great keeping everything moving forward, even when the septic failed, and the bank was just looking for a reason not to work with us."
Harry Paul (Branford CT)

"Rob Carter has been a singularly helpful realtor. He has accommodated my ideas and wishes at every turn; working with him has been a real pleasure. I have looked at the same antique house multiple times, and brought along an inspector and a contractor to give me an idea of the scope of the project. Rob has been great about arranging all these appointments.

He is an excellent communicator across multiple platforms: email, text, and phone. We have used a combination of techniques. He?s always been prompt in his responses. We have handled all documents electronically, although once when Rob needed a signature from me that day, he drove to where I was located to accommodate a packed-schedule day I was having. (Thanks, Rob!) I think this shows his willingness to go the extra mile. He has been ready with information about comps, zoning, pricing and other data in a very timely fashion.

Rob has taken the unavoidable lumps and bumps in the buying process in stride and has always been helpful in suggesting the supporting cast I might need as a buyer: lawyers, inspectors, etc. I am very grateful to him for making the process so pleasant and am happy to report that we have become friends!

Phoebe Schmidt (North Branford)

He really appreciated the help you gave him in navigating the process and I really appreciated knowing that he was in good hands. From the beginning, he felt comfortable with you and trusted you to help make the decision. Great job! Thank you."
Monica Florio (North Branford)
