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.

Testimonials

“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!”

“Shawn is a personal friend of mine and had also helped a friend of mine find a great house. He is truly an expert in his field and I trusted him to get the job done. He wrote a great contract for us and we ended up winning the deal because of him. Shawn is awesome! Shawn is the best! We are so happy with our purchase! He really helped us through the process and made sure we felt comfortable with everything. That's rare these days. Highly recommend Shawn to anyone! Shawn wrote a great contract. He also recommended us to use Rich Conlon from Atlantic Coast mortgage. This helped secure financing quickly so that we could complete an extremely tight closing deadline. I would recommend Shawn to anyone buying/selling a house or a condo.”

“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.”

“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. ”

“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.”

“Shawn embodies the qualities that are most important to me during the house buying process: knowledge of the market and area, fun and friendly to spend time around, and thoughtful about next steps wrt financing, paperwork, and inspections. If you're looking for a new home in the NoVA area, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Shawn. ”

He was incredibly knowledgeable of the DMV region, responsive to client needs, and really takes your criteria to heart when showing you listings. He took the time to answer my many questions, and always did so with a smile. He's the perfect combination of a great realtor and a great person! ”

“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. Enjoyed working with Shawn and looking forward to when it is time to list with him, as I found him to be fair and a hard worker. Very personable and accommodating.”

“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.”

“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. ”

“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. ”

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. ”
