Ratings & Reviews

David is very knowledgeable about the market and real estate in general. He is extremely helpful and always responsive and on time. After losing my father and then six months later my mother, it was devastating. When I realized I would not be able to keep my child hood home, it was almost too much to bare. A friend had been to one of David's open houses in my parents neighborhood. From our first meeting he understood the sensitively of the situation. He listened to my needs/concerns, never pressured me, made the whole process as painless as could be. The fact I lived out of town was never an issue and David went out of his way to ensure the process of selling my parents home went smoothly. My parents house was sold above market value and very quickly. More importantly to me, he found the perfect family to move in. A young, growing family which eased my pain as I know my parents would have loved this family creating new loving memories in their home. I would highly recommend David to anyone.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $775K in Redwood City, CA.

David put a lot of hard work and long hours into finding, securing, and purchasing my wife and my first home together. It goes without saying how tough a market this is and how we were truly blessed to have an advocate and person like David helping us wade through the properties in the Peninsula together. David was available at all times and helped answer any questions my wife and I had at a moment’s notice. We were fortunate that he kept his eyes and ears open and found our home for us. David is a class act and a consummate professional who, through the process, became very much a friend and confidant to us. His knowledge of the San Mateo and Redwood City areas benefited us greatly as we searched around for a home. Although we know David typically has more sellers as clients, we were duly impressed and have found that he was as good, if not better, on the other side when representing the buyers and the fiduciary responsibility to them. The way in which David worked with our loan officer and helped coach him up to call each of the sellers agents that we put offers on was a nice bonus and something that goes above and beyond what most real estate agents do. We invited David to our house warming party and he came and had a nice time! I highly recommend David to anyone that is looking into buying a home in the Peninsula!!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $975K in Fiesta Gardens, San Mateo, CA.

First of all, David made us more money than we thought we would get. My wife and I knew David as a neighbor for many years. When we went to sell our house we knew he would be a great realtor. He was extremely helpful with getting our house ready to sell for the maximum price. David was extremely knowledgeable about the market in our area in terms of pricing and the best time to sell. He is very knowledgeable about disclosures and the legal process involved with home sales today. I would work with David to sell a house in San Mateo without hesitation and have recommended him personally to many of our friends. David has a unique style that blends professionalism with humor to keep the stress of re-locating and selling the family home at a happy level. You will enjoy working with David Martin, a professional Realtor.

Sold a home in 2011 in Centerville, Fremont, CA 94536.

We were in the unenviable position of having to sell our previous home at the bottom of the market a few years ago. David Martin could not have been a better choice as our realtor. From advice on staging and landscaping to his general knowledge of the market for both buyers and sellers, David truly handled *everything* necessary to get our home sold for a decent price.

We then retained David's services to hep us find our next home, and again he was instrumental in our purchasing what is truly a dream home in our ideal neighborhood. My husband and I would not hesitate t o recommend David's services to anyone.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Fiesta Gardens, San Mateo, CA.

David Martin sold my widowed mother's house for her.

He was very knowledgeable in giving us suggestions to get the house ready, extremely helpful in getting the work done, sensitive in dealing with mom, and absolutely great in communication and follow up.

He listened to our needs/concerns, never pressured us, made the whole process virtually painless, and got her far more money than expected.

I have dealt with over 20 real estate agents over the last 40 years, and David was one of the best. I would highly recommend him.

Bought a home in 2011 in San Mateo Village, San Mateo, CA 94403.

I was referred to David by my financial adviser, who had previously worked with him, and he told me that David was honest and of the highest integrity; both descriptions proved most accurate! First, David helped me on every aspect of house buying: I was a newly widowed mom of a special needs daughter and living on a fixed income that had returned to CA after almost a decade living in FL and we were new to San Mateo and my concerns of house price, safety, and always resale value played heavily in our discussions and David tediously investigated every lead and answered every question that I had regarding each step on the way. David is also a very kind and brave man, as well: One time, I remember that David took me back to a home of which I was really interested in making an offer, but the selling agent failed to appear, so David called the buyer to see what he could do to let us in the home, again. Well, I could hear how rude and hostile the homeowner was in addressing my agent (and he wasn't on speaker phone) and after their conversation concluded, David never let on to the way he was treated and gently asked, "OK, are ready to go in and check out this house?" and I responded, "No thanks, if the owner was a jerk to you, imagine what he would be like in negotiation?" and we both laughed, nodded in agreement, and quickly drove away. In the end, David found for my daughter and me a very desirable home that is perfect for us in an area where other real estate agents knock on my door weekly asking if I would like to sell. Also, I think it is important to mention that I continue contacting David for referrals for everything from a gardener to a plumber and his referrals are great! In closing, I have given and will continue to give David's name to everyone I meet who is looking to buy a home in this area. Dorothy P. and daughter

Sold a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $725K in Fiesta Gardens, San Mateo, CA.

Dear David; Even at the very early stages of our encounters in preparing our house for sale, we knew we had made the absolute right choice with having you represent our home. We also knew of our intent to express our appreciation in writing to you upon the completion of our venture. However, as we got to know you more and saw the level of professionalism, dedication, integrity and genuine passion you bring to the table; it quickly became more and more difficult to adequately express our gratitude properly. As you know, the decision to sell our home vs. renting was a difficult one. From our initial meeting, you presented us with all options, a very realistic flow of events along with final expectations. Throughout the process we were amazed that every one of your suggestions and predictions were completely on the mark. The final outcome was the sale of our home in less than a week with multiple offers, in this very challenging real estate climate. We appreciated your congratulations upon closure of escrow, but the sentiments are much more appropriate for the outstanding job done by you in representing us as your clients and your company Coldwell Banker. From listing to close of escrow in five weeks. Outstanding results in our book. We are very fortunate to have met you and consider you more than our real estate expert, but a friend. Our only regret is not having met you earlier. You are and will always be our only recommendation to anyone who needs assistance in buying or selling a home. We are sure Coldwell Banker and your local branch is proud to have you as part of their winning team.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 in San Mateo Village, San Mateo, CA.

We had been looking for a rental property for sometime when we decided to go with David Martin, who we had met at open houses and lived in our neighborhood. It was the best decision we ever made. He was so helpful and so knowledgeable!!! He found us the perfect house and made the process of purchasing it so stress free. I cannot say enough good things about David.
