“Shawn's use of video to show the results of staging is effective but may not be unique. His use of video presentations like the "minute commute" he thought of for my property is unique in my experience of buying and selling houses (six others over the past 40 years). He also featured my property in the Washington Post weekend magazine, an effort that was new to me also and that proved to be effective.
The property was listed just after the beginning of the health emergency but was sold quickly even compared to the time it would have taken two months earlier and at a very good price under the circumstances.”
Steve, Arlington VA (Seller)
“Shawn was knowledgeable about the different condo buildings in Arlington. He listened to what I was looking for and was quick to get me in to see the units. Shawn was friendly and easy to communicate with. I would recommend working with Shawn if you're looking for a new home in Arlington, Virginia. ”
Katie, Arlington, VA (Buyer)
“Shawn Battle was great!
He was very responsive and a great listener. I am sure he had numerous other clients, but he always made time for us and every time we were with him, he made it seem like we were his only clients. Even in this busy market, he always took the time to answer any questions we had, and met with us at various times throughout the day (weekdays, weekends, and holidays) that were accommodating to us. I have already provided some friends with his contact information and will continue to do so in the future.”
Eric C. Arlington (Buyer)

If you're looking for a new home in the NoVA area, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Shawn. ”
J. Richkus, NoVA (Buyer)
“I am a first time home buyer and Shawn Battle put me at ease every step of the way! He was incredibly knowledgeable of the DMV region, responsive to client needs, and really takes your criteria to heart when showing you listings.

Casey, Arlington (Buyer)
“I had worked with Shawn previously in 2018, and felt he was quick to understand my interests, requirements and considerations for the unit. I was glad to call him to work with him again.

Dave and Angie Colamaria (Seller)
“Shawn was very down to earth, and offering us rides to/from open houses.
Shawn was available what felt like any time of day, his recommendations / strategy saved us time and money.
Shawn’s website and YouTube channel made us comfortable that the agent had significant experience in the Arlington, VA / District of Columbia area, and sense of honesty by providing opinions in blog videos. Discussing mistakes that buyers make and process to purchasing a home.”
Stephan (DC) (Buyer)

Dan Iglhaut, Alexandria (Seller)
“We met Shawn at an open house and appreciated his candid assessment of the market and obvious expertise. We could not have chosen a better realtor for our goal of finding a condominium in Arlington within walking distance to the Orange Line. He helped us find and successfully bid on the perfect place. Throughout the process we were impressed by his knowledge, responsiveness, and friendliness. I strongly recommend you work with Shawn if you're looking for a place in Arlington or nearby areas. ”

“Shawn Battle is the best realtor I've ever worked with. Very professional, timely, thoughtful, and hardworking. I now recommend to all friends and family.
Stephen Stover (Seller)
“I was impressed with how responsive Shawn Battle was. He answered my first phone call and met with me that day. After my first meeting with him, I knew he was the right broker to help me.
Shawn Battle was so responsive and accessible. I never had to wait very long for him to respond to a text message or email message.
Shawn Battle was invested in this from day one and when we decided what I should improve in my property, he connected me with people who could do the work within our short time frame. I really trusted his expertise in what should be improved and the pricing. And everything turned out great.
Christine, Arlington (Seller)
“Shawn was very attentive to our requirements and very responsive to any questions we had. He also was very knowledgeable about the market and how best to sell/market the property. He worked hard to get material and photos done in a very timely manner and provided great advice on how we should negotiate with the buyer. Bottom line, Shawn is hard working, very efficient and trusting. ”
Priya Patel, Arlington VA (Seller)
“Working with Shawn Battle was a top notch experience. He is everything you could want in a real estate agent. Approachable, well-informed, experienced, and the "go-to guy" for the Rosslyn--Ballston Corridor.
Shawn's marketing efforts were great... We had 30 tours within 3 days of listing property. Unfortunately the original buyer cancelled his contract after 2 days of funding his deposit, however Shawn was able to overcome adversity and had a back-up offer under contract within 24 hours.. a true miracle! This saved us time and money. I would certainly recommend Shawn to friends and family.”
Tim White, Alrington (Seller)
“I have and will continue to utilize the services of Shawn Battle for all of my real estate transactions. We have brokered 4 to 5 deals in the Northern Virginia area together. His knowledge, accessibility, and integrity are the core principles that will continue to drive my business in his direction.
The purchase process was seamless and the integration of a more mobile platform in the process is key to creating the effeciency needed to accommodate my extensive travel for work. His relationship with Atlantic Coast Mortgage made the cumbersome process extremely easy and purchaser friendly.
My continued loyalty to Shawn reinforces the highly rated performance evaluation that he attains.”
Michael and Jordan, Arlington, VA (Buyer)
“I chose Shawn Battle as the realtor to sell my condo due to his specialization in condo sales and in the Arlington area. I found him based on recommendations on the internet and picked him over other realtors I interviewed who friends had worked with in the past. He exceeded my expectations and the property was sold above asking price with a quick close. ”
Lauren, Falls Church (Seller)
“Shawn is amazing - great knowledge and we knew that he cared about us as clients. Through the entire process of buying a home, Shawn's become more than an agent - he's become a great friend.
Overall amazing experience. We really benefited from the expertise and guidance that Shawn and Century 21 Redwood Realty team provided when it came to weathering the ups and downs of a crazy real estate market.”
Katie, Arlington (Buyer)
“As someone who has always been skeptical of realtors, I typically would not consider spending time making recommendations. But, I would recommend Shawn Battle in a heartbeat. He is pragmatic, personable, witty and intelligent. I always appreciated his responsiveness and willingness to address questions and listen to concerns. He saw the transaction through from start to finish. Moreover, the brilliant marketing blitz Shawn engineered for my property was simply stellar. He knows his market and he quickly learns the needs of his clients. All these impressive qualities led me to recommend Shawn to good friends of mine who are currently looking for a larger condo unit in Arlington. ”
Julie, Arlington, VA (Seller)
“Shawn Battle was highly recommended to us by a friend who had nothing but pleasant things to say and we plan to do the same by referring him to ALL of our friends and family. We were extremely impressed from the first time we met with Shawn, from his sales plan to the previous portfolio of listings. He did not have to "sell" his work, because his pure knowledge and experience spoke for itself. It was also satisfying to know we were on the same page regarding price and plans to get the house on the market.
We originally planned to sell the house in the Spring, but decided to wait until the Fall and Shawn was respectful of our decision and very patient with us until we were ready. Shawn did an exceptional job handling all aspects of the sale. He made the entire process so effortless, we always felt comfortable asking for his professional advice and trusted his judgement. He went above and beyond our expectations in order to get the house on the market, guided us through the entire process and gave us the proper advice when we needed it. We were also impressed with the resources he used to keep up with the current technology (showings app, video with drone footage, etc.), the utilization of social media and direct marketing. He was easy to work with, easy to get in touch with and always on top of everything! He continuously provided updates and not once did we worry about anything. His hard work and dedication is reflected on the quick sale of our home with multiple offers.
We can't say enough kind things about Shawn and how much we appreciated his efforts in getting our house sold. We have already referred him to several of our friends and can't wait to go back to him when we are ready to buy again!”
HeeSun Lee, Arlington (Seller)
“Shawn Battle far exceeded my expectations throughout the sale process. Shawn is hard working and dedicated to achieving the best result for his clients and is always well-prepared for any meeting or discussion.
I researched a few brokers in the area and Shawn's background and experience selling Orange line condos and units in my building made Shawn an easy pick. His experience prepping units for sale and deciding renovations was also key. I lived outside of the area and had been renting the unit for several years and the unit needed some updates before listing for sale. Shawn recommended excellent people to perform the work, helped select the best colors, etc. and coordinated the renovations for me before listing the unit.
Throughout the sale process, Shawn proactively communicated and provided regular updates on showings, feedback, general market activity, etc. all of which was very valuable for me as an out of town owner. I knew Shawn was doing everything possible to sell my condo at the best price and shortest time possible. As the slow summer sale season hit, Shawn continued trying new marketing ideas to drive showings and interest and we consistently had more showings than other similar units in the area.
Once I received an offer, Shawn did an outstanding job negotiating the final contract and other details, keeping me fully informed throughout the process. Shawn made the closing process go very smoothly as well.
I highly recommend Shawn Battle and would definitely work with him again if I'm buying or selling property in the area. ”
Dave Levinson (Seller)
My selection of Shawn came as a result of a search made by a good friend, commercial broker, and very smart business woman. She looked him and up and I decided to go with Shawn. I was glad I chose him because I felt comfortable with him from the first moment we met. He was friendly and professional and seemed to have the experience I needed to get the job done.
Excellent experience. Shawn Battle has the experience and patience to do an excellent job. Overall, he is honest and easy to work with. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
It was a great pleasure working with Shawn. His easy going and calm personality kept my stress levels low and I appreciated that. He was quick to reply to my questions or concerns and made sure I did everything I needed to do to get my house sold. ”
MEM - Washington, DC (Seller)
“A true real estate professional, Shawn is knowledgeable and excellent in negotiating the best deal possible in a highly competitive market. We were pleased with Shawn as our broker and will use him exclusively on future transactions.”
Isabel Kalmanides (Buyer)
“Shawn knows the market in my area. He was very straight forward and explained what to expect. He was very thorough and his presentation of my property was very professional. He went beyond what was expected at every turn. Not very many folks do that any more. I really appreciated his handling of my expectations and responsiveness to my calls and emails.
The presentation of my property on the various online advertising sites was very professional. My condo sold in less than 1 day. It took a couple of days to receive the contract and finalize but it was done very quickly!!!”
Cindy Newsom, Falls Church, VA (Seller)
