About Me

Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, I graduated with a business degree in Accounting from Clarion University and worked as an accountant in New York for over 4 years.  Knowing that I wanted to make a career in selling real estate, I moved to Northern Virginia in 2003 was licensed in Virginia, Washington DC and Maryland with a brokers license in both Virginia and Maryland and started working with Redwood Realty.   In 2006, I founded Battle Real Estate in Virginia where I was the principle broker for over 2 years, during which time I also sold new homes in Maryland and Washington, DC for McWilliams Ballard.  In 2009, I rejoined Century 21 Redwood realty and started my current company, Orange Line Condo.  I have been recognized as a Top Producer through the National Association of Realtors and have been awarded Century 21's Emerald Award in 2009, the Centurion Award in 2010, 2011 & 2012 & the Presidents award for Centurion Level and Quality Service in 2012.  I have an extensive knowledge of the Arlington market, which is my focus, but I have sold homes and have experience in all of Northern Virginia, Washington DC and Maryland.  I pride myself on quality service, extensive high end marketing and knowing my product.  I take each listing personally and treat it as if it were my own home.   When buying through me, I let the home do the talking, I dont believe in pressure tactics.  My job isn't to sell you on a home, it is to find the homes that best fit your criteria, make you feel comfortable throughout the transaction, and negotiate your terms on the home of your choice...... and I have extensive knowledge and over 14 years of experience in resales, new homes, foreclosures and short sales to do just that.

“We knew of Shawn Battle because he has sold other units in our building. We always saw him on our block, in our building, in the neighborhood, forever walking briskly in his blue suit. We selected him because he seemed like a hard-working guy who was knowledgeable about the units in our building and how buying/selling there went. The man is a boss. He handled every aspect of the sale including the annoying maintenance tasks we didn't want to deal with. From our initial meeting to our last phone call, we trusted his knowledge, expertise, and advice. We trusted him entirely and couldn't have asked for a better realtor. Plus, his video of our unit was STELLAR. Shawn Battle is someone I would choose as a realtor again without hesitation, and he's someone I'd want to keep in touch with just because he's a great guy. Very satisfied. Thanks again!”

“Shawn Battle's tremendous communication ability set the stage for the successful sale of our house. The prologue was polishing the renovation that we just had completed by enhancing lighting, upgrading door knobs, painting of a basement & front door as well as staging the house. Act one was the amazing photographs, 3-D video, flyers and blast emails to wide area to generate a buzz. The second act was a tasteful short film and open houses that brought our house alive to buyers. In a dramatic work, the epilogue is often a speech but here it was Shawn reviewing the multiple offers and ensuring we understood each offer and weighing the strengths and weaknesses of each. 'Tis ten to one Shawn Battle can always please. All that need to sell their home.”

“We choose Shawn after interviewing a handful of agents in Arlington. Shawn's expertise, and close proximity to, the orange line condo market in Arlington was critical in our decision to pick Shawn. It was clear from the first conversation that Shawn knows the market as well as anyone possibly could and knew exactly what it would take to bring the unit to market and sell during a typically slow market period. We were long-distance sellers and Shawn made the process extremely easy and stress-free. He was always very (very) quick to respond either via phone/e-mail/text and was very clear and detailed in providing the exact information needed to make an informed decision on any particular issue before moving on. He was also approachable with any questions or issues. Shawn was also a great partner in helping to identify vendors to assist with any repairs/staging/work required on the unit and did an excellent job managing those relationships without requiring too much from us as sellers beyond making informed decisions. From the interview on day 1 to the close of the sale, Shawn never wavered in his support, attentiveness, and quick response time. His support staff was also excellent and overall we had a seamless experience. We would strongly recommend Shawn and his team to anyone looking to buy or sell a unit in the Northern Virginia area. ”

“Shawn was very professional and I felt very comfortable with his sales pitch! Shawn did a great job and I loved his video! I wasn’t too keen on staging and painting but I’m very happy I followed his advice. He was great and I would highly recommend him! I would definitely use him again ! It was so easy dealing with Shawn. I had already moved to Chicago and long distance worked very well with Shawn.”

“I went to an open house that Shawn held in my building several years ago and thought that he was nice and professional. I got his emails with his listing videos and thought they were great marketing. Even though I used another realtor to buy my new house before selling my condo and enjoyed working with her, I knew that I wanted Shawn to sell my condo because of his amazing marketing. I could not have enjoyed working with Shawn more. He had great recommendations for repairs and staging, he was always available via text, email, and phone, and most importantly he sold the property at the right price really quickly. He’s also just a super nice guy.”

“Shawn Battle came highly recommended and we used him both for the sale of our condo and purchase of our new home. Shawn and his team were amazing throughout the whole process from our initial meeting all the way to settlement. He is honest, thorough and a gave us great advice. He was always there to answer any questions we had. We enjoyed working with Shawn and his team and highly recommend him to all home buyers or sellers in the DMV!”

“Shawn helped me sell my condo in the Ballston area. He has good knowledge of the local neighborhood and he has this awesome website, Orange Line Condo. He provided great insights and planning in terms of the selling strategy (pricing, staging, etc.). He recommended me use staging which, in my opinion, made my unit stand out among other places available for sell. Shawn also did an Youtube video ad for my unit (which I think is fun). We received our first offer on the day my unit was put on the market. Overall, a great experience working with Shawn. Highly recommended him if you are selling in the Arlington area.”

“Worked with Shawn on both selling (2020) and buying (2021) transactions. Commented on the selling transaction in another review. For the buying transaction, Shawn was knowledgeable and patient to answer any questions along the process. He was very responsive and always understood our family's concerns and provided his best opinions. He always showed up on time for meetings with the seller, home inspections and walkthrough, even the time and location may not be convenient for him. Lastly, have been working with other agents before, I can tell that Shawn is an energetic and motivated realtor who cares about his clients.”

“I've worked with Shawn Battle on multiple occasions and couldn't have been happier. Shawn and his team offer so much great expertise beyond his great marketing involving all aspects of real estate. Shawn generally wants his customers to be happy and is always available to help long after the sale.”

“Shawn came highly recommended from our friend/neighbor who he had sold a condo for at a record price in Parkfairfax. We held onto a mailed postcard regarding this transaction also-so when we were ready to sell/buy-he was very much top of mind! Shawn was excellent at taking us through the process, assisting with finding contractors for our pre-sale renovations, answering questions, and giving advice. Most importantly, he helped us price our condo appropriately for the market with a quick sale over asking price. We would definitely recommend him. Overall, very pleased with our experience. The advice, marketing , and unique video really made our property stand out-and the expertly managed total package resulted in a quick sale-over asking price.”

“Shawn is awesome. During the home search he was very organized and thorough. When we finally found the right home, he gave crucial advice that helped us land the contract on my dream home quickly. He gave me reassurances when I had my doubts and I was always able to communicate with him throughout the process. He acted quickly when time was of the essence and was all-around very reliable and knowledgeable. Even after everything was said and done he continued to check up and has been a wealth of information and referrals. As a first time homebuyer, I'm extremely glad Shawn was my agent and I would highly recommend him to my friends and family.”

“As I moved out of state, I really had to trust and lean on Shawn to sell my condo. Admittedly, I was nervous, but that feeling quickly changed; his clear communication and transparency left me comfortable and stress-free. What separates Shawn from the rest of the real estate agents is two fold: his extensive knowledge of the surrounding market and his sincerity in helping each client walk through the entire selling process. I highly recommend him to any nervous or overwhelmed seller - he won't disappoint.”

“Shawn Battle did such a fantastic job at selling our townhouse. We met with him a few weeks in advance to discuss the timeline and stages of the selling process. He laid out clear steps to getting our house ready for market and would check in with us to see how things were proceeding. He knew a team of great painters and cleaners to really help our house show well. The market research he did into comparable properties helped us decide on a proper selling price. Shawn brought a great team of professionals together and we genuinely felt that we were in great hands throughout the process. He was always available by phone, text, or email when we had questions or concerns (both big and small). The marketing that Shawn’s team produced exceeded our expectations - the value of the marketing was clear when the open house came around and dozens of tours were scheduled within the first 24 hours. I would recommend Shawn Battle and his team to anyone looking to buy or sell and I would work with him again any time in the future. ”

“Our selling experience with Shawn Battle was awesome in every aspect. Shawn helped us sell our condo previously and offered great advice in helping it sell after it was on the market for awhile. The meetings were professional and Shawn was extremely responsive when we had questions. We were selling the property from half way across the country and Shawn set up everything for us to optimize the sale of the property. This included painting, cleaning, and staging. He also personally did yard work for the property to make it look nice. We could not be happier with the results. We received multiple offers immediately and settled on an offer that was more than 20% ($175K) of asking price which closed in less than 15 days. It was a great offer and Shawn and his firm were instrumental in making it happen. I will go out of my way to recommend Shawn and his firm in any real estate situation. ”

“Shawn has been very patient with us. We looked for a new home for almost 2 years and he weathered the weird covid markets with us like a champ when we were selling our condo. I like that he's forthright and honest, which made me trust him more. I will recommend him to anyone and everyone. ”

“We sold our home in the middle of a pandemic. There was a lot of uncertainty during this time but Shawn expertly walked us through the process. The experience could have been extremely stressful but it wasn’t, thanks to a Shawn. Overall, Shawn was a great agent. He was professional, focused, personable and fun to work with. He delivered high quality marketing materials and the marketing video of our home he created will be an amazing keepsake for us. The sell of our home was quick and painless. We had a wonderful experience. I highly recommend Shawn!”
