Ratings & Reviews

As first time home buyers and new to the area we knew we would have to rely heavily on our real-estate agent. Marta performed beyond our expectations. She was very knowledgeable on multiple areas of Tucson and was able to guide us into a neighborhood that fit what we were looking for. Her knowledge of homes and their values was accurate. She regularly pointed out items that could be problematic or advantageous and explained they reduced (or added) maintenance etc. She also acted to serve our best interests while compromising her own, which signaled her goal was to make us happy, and not just hurry to close on a house. One of my favorite things about Marta was that when she didn't know the answer to a question, she would say so, then work to find the correct answer. This type of mentality demonstrates that when she does answer your question, you can trust the answer.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $775K in Oro Valley, AZ.

As buyers from out of town, we picked Marta based on glowing reviews like these – and they were spot on. We entirely agree with the consensus – Marta is experienced, knowledgeable, patient, creative, an excellent negotiator, and builds a high level of trust with her clients. She is a tireless worker who is timely in her responses and relentless in tracking down details; I’m not sure she sleeps! And her best trait is this - Marta consistently places her clients’ interests first, something we’ve never found in any other real estate agent. Very refreshing. If you knew what we know, you wouldn’t consider hiring anyone else.

Bought a home in 2014.

We chose to work with Marta, as she came highly recommended from 3 different families -- each of whom have different budgets, different tastes, yet all of whom had terrific experiences with her. We felt the same.

Her expertise is unquestionable -- not only does she know the ins and outs of Tucson (different areas, neighborhoods, etc.) but she also has an impressive knowledge of home construction. Immediately upon entering a home, Marta inspects the house closely, pointing out any areas that might be cause for concern, or anything that makes the house particularly appealing.

She also has an extremely low-pressure approach - she does not want you to rush into anything without thinking it through carefully. Once we found a house we loved, Marta was there to take us through the arduous home-buying process as efficiently, quickly, and smoothly as possible. She made the entire experience as painless as possible, by seeing to it that every detail was covered. She is a true professional, the best in the business.

We adore our new house and can't ever imagine selling it -- but if we do one day relocate, Marta will undoubtedly be the realtor we turn to.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $775K in Tucson, AZ.

Without hesitation, we would highly recommend Marta Harvey. Throughout our home buying experience, she diligently searched for the answers to our many questions and addressed every concern with great fervor. Every timely answer came with a splash of her wisdom, honesty, and expertise. At all times, we felt she was truly "on our side" and a selfless advocate for our needs. We were also quite impressed with her professionalism during interactions with us AND with the seller's realtor. Her demeanor spoke volumes about her strong and caring character....and how deeply she wants the best for her clients. It was a blessing to have her as our realtor....and it was an absolute pleasure to have her on our team!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $75K in Julia Keen, Tucson, AZ.

Marta is a fabulous agent - smart, savvy, ethical, and puts her clients needs first. She took on a small job, but didn't treat us any differently than she would have for a large sale. Marta anticipated several roadblocks in our protracted transaction, and was always ready with excellent suggestions on how to overcome them. She was always prepared, patient and knowledgeable, and I would absolutely recommend her for any future real estate transaction.

Sold a home in 2013 in Prince Tucson, Catalina Foothills, AZ 85718.

After living in Seattle for several years and eventually buying a house there, my wife and I finally decided to sell our long-time former home in Tucson. Marta was recommended to us by our realtor in the Seattle area and we were thoroughly satisfied with the results. She thoughtfully worked with us to manage locally the preparations for the house that we were unable to do ourselves remotely. She demonstrated keen insight into the market and ultimately listed and sold our house at a price higher that what other agents we also interviewed told us we would be able to obtain. She was a strong negotiator who always achieved the most favorable outcome for us whenever obstacles came up around the inspection or appraisal. She always made selling our house her highest priority and even took a call with us while she was on vacation to iron out an issue that had popped up just prior to closing - at 4 am in the morning from Spain! I hold Marta's professional abilities and dedication to her clients in the highest regard and would recommend her without hesitation to anyone who needs a realtor (buyer or seller) in the Tucson area.

Sold a home in 2012 in Menlo Park, Tucson, AZ 85745.

While trying to sell our home, Marta was very knowledgeable, kind, patient, and professional. We were underwater with our home and needed to sell it as we were moving out of state. Although Marta hadn't had first-hand experience with a short sale, she handled the listing, showings and sale with great ease and expertise. I would highly recommend Marta to anyone looking to sell or buy a home in the Tucson area. She truly made selling our home seem effortless -- a true professional!

Bought a home in 2012 in Casas Adobes, Oro Valley, AZ 85704.

I’d like to say what a pleasant experience it was dealing with Marta Harvey during the search for and purchase of our home in Tucson. The qualities I most admire in Marta are her professionalism, her knowledge of the market, her personable nature, her punctuality and her patience as it took some time to find the right house. Marta was fast to understand what we wanted and what we didn’t want which meant we weren’t inundated with properties that did not fit our criteria. Nothing was ever a bother and she always responded promptly to any contact I made with her. I would highly recommend Marta as a realtor.

Bought a home in 2012 in Flowing Wells, Tucson, AZ 85705.

Being a business traveler just moving into town, I did not have the most flexible schedule. Marta's expertise and knowledge of Tucson was exactly what I needed. She was extremely accommodating and responsive. She had listings scheduled for me the day I flew into town and followed up with details while I was out. At the time, the inventory was low and I needed to buy quickly. Together we found a place fast was in escrow within a few weekends. Marta was creative with solutions, from financing ideas to inspections to closing. Her ability to fly around paperwork is amazing, you have to see it in person. I will certain work with Marta again in the future.

Sold a home in 2013 in Sunnyside, Tucson, AZ 85706.

Marta is friendly and efficient. She delivered on all of her commitments and sold our home quickly and for the price we were asking. She worked with us when unexpected events arose.
