Short Sale Master--closed over 300!, Real Estate Licence (10 years experience)
Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2014 in Salt Lake City, UT.
APaola helped me to actually save my home. She was very knowledgeable and gave me so much information to help my situation. She ended up helping me to save my home instead of having to sale my home. She went out of her way to help negotiate with my mortgage company while I was working on the road with limited phone service. And did this all knowing they were not getting a commission. I would go to them anytime if I needed their services. They have even contacted me after to follow up. Her team is great!!
In 2013 I was trying to do a short sale and Paola Martinsen really helped me a lot with this she kept everything organized and alert of everything that was going on when I got her as my new realtor I rarely had to do anything and she also kept me updated of all the papers and documents during the process I recommend her as your new realtor for her professional background and 9 years of experience.
Everyone in life has a busy schedule, but somehow Paola and her team made my situation their priority. Any questions or problems I had during my process were answered efficiently and taking care of with my best interests in mind.
Paola has broad knowledge of the local market, and knows how to negotiate the battlefield of distressed properties. As an investor, I could not be happier with Paola's knowledge, service, and responsiveness. The only reason I did not give I higher score on the negotiation skills is because all the background work she did made the negotiation process proceed without any bumps in it. It was not necessary to negotiate because of all the due diligence she did leading up to my purchase of the investment property. Great work Paola. I will be working with you again in the future!

I had a property that was going through a short sale and I was getting no where with the bank. It kept going around and around. Paola stepped in and was able to quickly get movement with the bank and helped me get to a much faster closing. I truly enjoyed working with Paola and look forward to doing business with her again.

Paola is one if the few agents that actually knows how to negotiate short sales. With her experience of real estate transactions, she helps first time home buyers to seasoned investors find properties.
I have worked with Paola on several transactions. She is by far, one of the most professional realtors I have ever had the pleasure to do business with. Both her team and herself work very quickly and shoot it to you straight. Each time I have worked with them it has been a great experience and I look forward to doing more business in the future. If you ever have a real estate need, Paola should be your first call.

Thank you Riley! I look forward to helping you achieve your business and real estate goals.
Paola Martinsen was able to sell our home fast and we didn't have to worry about a thing. She took a load of our shoulders! Her knowledge of Real Estate and the short sale industry has exceeded our expectations by far. I will use her again in the future and would recommend her to anyone. If you are looking to do a short sale, do yourself a favor and hire Paola and her team, you will not regret it. Just give her a call and you will see what I'm talking about.

Paola is amazing! She kept us informed throughout every step of the process and worked with the bank to put us in the best position possible. She is a true professional that fully understands the business and I would highly recommend her to anyone.
