Ratings & Reviews

I had a great experience working with Helen Martin when my family relocated across the country. She is very knowledgeable about the area and was very patient. When issues arose from the home inspection, she stayed on top of the situation and went above and beyond the call of duty to get things resolved. Helen went the extra mile every step of the way, got quick answers, and has helped keep us on track to close on our house.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $400K in Blaine, WA.

Helen is an amazing agent! In 2013, my family moved across country to the Seattle area. I only had a few days to find a rental and Helen went above and beyond to help me accomplish this. As I am not from this area, Helen was extremely valuable in not only lending insight into the current prices and availabilities in the different neighborhoods, but also other aspects such as nightlife, schools, shopping and transportation that really make a huge difference in where you live. After a year of renting, there was no doubt in our minds that we would be contacting Helen to help us find our home to purchase. Helen helped us find a house that we truly love and really went above and beyond to make sure that the transaction went through (as we faced some issues that were well beyond her control). Not only did Helen really make it happen for us, she was also able to provide contacts and recommendations for all of the services that are needed when purchasing a home. I would certainly recommend Helen to family and friends. Not only did I find that she was there for us professionally, but also on a personal level; I couldn't have imagined a better experience. I hope that we do not have to move for a long time, but when we do, we will 100% be going with Helen again!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $325K in Kent, WA.

We met Helen thru the DAP class and I knew at that moment that she was going to be the one to help us find the perfect house that will accommodate a household of 8 - it only took us a process of 3-4 months from the time we attended the DAP class to the time we signed the escrow papers and picking up the keys to our new home. During the process Helen kept in contact with us consistently and we would meet weekly if possible. There were always so many choices and the knowledge that she has of the marketing is out of this world, we knew that she was never directing us in the wrong direction and she always had our interest in mind. A month after we moved into our new home, the original furnace had a slight leak and we mentioned it to Helen and she reminded us that we had the home warranty (via signing up with Helen) and we saved $1700 on the furnace repair, we just had to pay $60.00 for the service fee. I highly recommend Helen for anyone who is becoming a 1st time homeowner/buyer and she will guide you in the right direction. Helen is also teaching a 1st time homebuyer/owner class, I suggest you look into it and it will be the best choice you'll make in finding your home. Thank you, Helen.

Sold a home in 2011 in East Renton Highlands, Newcastle, WA 98059.

I thought foreclosure was the best solution until I talked to Helen. She explained everything so that I could see the ramifications of foreclosure vs. short sale, and then she explained every step along the way. She held my hand when I got nervous, calmly walked me through the process, and the short sale closed in a few months with hardly a glitch. I thought it might impact my credit - but so far, nada. I'd keep crossing my fingers but it makes it hard to type.

Sold a Condo home in 2011 for approximately $150K in Wilburton, Bellevue, WA.

Helen Martin was very courteous and professional. She stepped right up and helped us along the path of selling our condo. We felt that she cared and wanted to help us the best she could. She faced some challanges due some problems with the Condominium complex and with the management team, but she bore the task and saw it thru. We were surprised at the fee that she would be getting, but by the time it was over we realized that she earned every penny of it. She kept us informed of each offer that was made and followed thru with contacting us on a regular basis. We never lack trust in her devotion to the task. We would recommend her to anyone and everyone.

Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $300K in Renton, WA.

Helen is an awesome, detail oriented agent whom I can highly recommend. Our home sale was complicated in that it was a Short Sale that closed when a family emergency had taken us out-of-state during the critical end of escrow time period. Helen rose to the challenge by keeping things on track at the home front, meeting with other professionals on our behalf (like the Septic Inspector) and faxing the needed escrow docs to us in a timely fashion to insure our escrow closed on time. She made it all look easy, but I know it wasn't. If you have need of a talented, young professional real estate agent who is willing to go the extra mile for you, there is none better than Helen Martin.

Thank you so much for your kind words. I'm motivated by making my clients happy and there is no greater pleasure than knowing I've succeeded. You were both a joy to serve!

Bought a home in 2010 in East Hill, Kent, WA 98031.

A very patient agent especially with our requirements for looking into a home. She takes time to explain topics that are not common to buyers like short sales or foreclosures. She was very accommodating to our needs like when we gave her a short notice about visiting a particular property, she made time for us.

She provides opinions on the houses we visit. Does not pressure us into buying something that we are not 100% sure. An agent that works with our needs.

Definitely will use her again or recommend her. Great Job!!!
