    Bought a home in 2014.
    My fiance and I are both first time home buyers, so to be honest we didn't know much, if anything on buying a new house. We knew that we both needed to be pre-approved by a bank for a mortgage but that was basically it. We were very fortunate to find Martin to be our real estate agent.

    Martin, sat down with us to talk about what we were both looking for in a new home and what our budget was like. He quickly set me up on an auto-notification that allows me to know when houses that fit my interest became available on the market. He took the initiative and set us up to get pre-approved by a bank in case we saw something we liked already on the market. Overall, everything was quite easy up to this point.

    Martin was always easy to reach and responsive to any calls or emails. He was willing to show us all houses we were interested in despite that they might be in opposite direction of the county. We went on a few open houses until we found what we thought to be THE house.

    Martin was very knowledgable and sat down with us to write up our first offer. He went through the paperwork step by step and had previously sent us all the HOA, disclosure and paperwork about the property. He even went out of his way to get in contact with the agent that was selling the house to get all the necessary information before suggesting to us what our offer price should be. We didn't get THE house but we quickly found another one.

    The second time we place an offer we did get what we are now calling OUR HOME. Martin again helped us through escrow and getting out all the required documents requested by the bank to get the mortgage loan. He came along when it was time to sign for the house at the Escrow office. He basically held our hand through the entire process and told us what each step was going to be like. He even recommended an insurance company for us to contact when we were looking to buy our HO6 insurance.

    Now that I have the house, Martin continues to be helpful. He really goes beyond what a realtor should be doing. He even suggested a painter and a contractor to help us, so we could get things done and move into our house sooner.

    Even after helping us buy the house, he remains responsive to all my questions in regards to my HOA payments, mortgage payments, taxes, HO6 insurance, etc.

    Overall, Martin definitely made my fiance and me more knowledgeable about the process in buying a house. He made it easy and definitely stress free. I highly recommend Martin to anyone that wants a quick, hassle free time buying or even selling their home. I will be keeping in contact with him, in case I decided to sell or by a new home in the future.

    Sold a home in 2014.
    I found Martin by surfing the internet. I was helping my daughter ( a new college graduate) to buy a condo in bay area. Martin is the best realtor I have ever met (actually I have not met him in person yet). He absolutely deserves my 5 star rating on every category this web site lists. There is actually more, when processing the loan, the lender found that my daughter's identity was stolen. It is Martin who urged us to be calm and direct us to the right channel to deal with the issue. And with his help, we took care of the problem. I can't thank him enough! I highly recommend him to anyone who is interested in buying a house/condo in the bay area.  MoreLess
