I loved working with Griselle. I met her at the open house and she was very informative and answered all of our questions. Though she was working for the developer she was very helpful to us and let us know all of our options. She walked us through the entire process from the open house to us signing our lease. She helped us to understand every clause within the lease and was always very responsive to any questions we had. She also made herself available to assist us in coming back to take measurements of our new place. My husband and I would certainly recommend her to anyone.
Firstly it was one of Grisslle's employees named May Lane. The fact that she found me a house on the very first visit, whereas I had been hunting for a few months was a real positive. The realtor made some good insight and suggested some good and cheap remodeling techniques.
The bad part about her was that she did not make me aware of the consequences and did not help me really negotiate a better rate. If you are well versed in the process then I would recommend her for the knowledge of the area, but not for handling the process itself. She did not do due diligence with regard to the paper work and had informed me that the initial contract was only cursory and that it will be torn and a new one written. That was absolutely not true of course. Also she had not given me the paperwork earlier so that I could go through it. So I ended up having to jump through multiple hoops.
Anther issue I had was that she did not turn up for the closing and I was left to handle it myself(and many of the agreed to items were not done by the seller so there was a lot I had to swallow)
We hired Grisselle as our listing agent based on her stellar reviews. I must say that Grisselle has lived up to every expectation possible. Grisselle Martinez is a pro - hands down. There are a few things about Grisselle that really set her apart from other realtors. First of all, when she meets with clients she is very thorough and attentive. In the initial stages of the process, we sat down several times with her, and she took the time to answer to explain the process completely and answered all of our questions. And on top of knowing the industry inside and out, she also has that personable touch that makes working with her and going through the whole sale process a breeze. She is extremely organized, thorough, genuinely kind, compassionate, and honest person who I felt was also concerned for my family's future, well-being, and happiness. Thanks Grisselle!!
Sold a Multi Family home in 2013 in Union City, NJ.
I first met Grisselle a few years back when my wife and I attempted to buy a property though her, but did not, because we shifted our attention to Florida. So when the time came for my parents to sell and relocate to Florida as well, we contacted her.
She did not disappoint. From day one, she put my parents who are seniors at ease, providing a realistic ballpark figure and timeframe. She had offers coming in right away and when things did not go as expected always had a plan B.
What we valued the most from her is that she always listened to and acted on my parents concerns and was always quick to respond to our calls, even while she was on vacation. She certainly gained our respect and admiration and she certainly delivered as promised.
My parents still own a second property in the area and would not consider anyone else but her when the time comes to sell it as well.
Grisselle helped me purchase a condo. She was responsive and knowledgeable of the market. She also put me in contact with some finance folks to get my loan after getting some bad advice from my own bank. I would definitely recommend her and intend to use her for my future needs.
My husband and I closed on our second property with Grisselle. She was very professional and spent a lot of time with us looking at houses. We've made offers on a few houses and was outbid, but Grisselle stood by our side until we found the house that fit our needs, budget, and location. My husband and I are looking to have her list our first property for rent. She has great local knowledge and I would highly recommend her to my family and friends!! =)
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $600K in Weehawken, NJ.
As first-time home buyers, my wife and I were very fortunate to work with Grisselle - she was able to walk us through every step of what can be at times a terrifying process. Her greatest strengths were her familiarity with the area in which we purchased our new home, the advice she was to offer during the actual negotiation for the purchase of the home (which happened with multiple offers being placed on the property), and above all, her absolute responsiveness to each and every question and request we had throughout the entire process up through closing. We would happily recommend that any of our friends or family utilize her when purchasing a home.

Grisselle is the best thing that happened to us in Real Estate. She has gone above and beyond the call of duty to make us go from "For Sale" to "Sold". She is very professional, very understanding, very helpful. I did Real Estate for about 12 years, I thought I knew everything until we met Grisselle.
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Union City, NJ.
Grisselle is the best and reliable agent that I have done business with. She made sure to have open house for brokers to be able to expedite the sale of my unit. She advertised my property not only in the Web sites but also by having brochure's of my unit with beautiful pictures.
