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.

Bought a home in 2013.
As a first time home buyer, we used to have lots of questions. Martin always answered our questions very patiently and guided us through the process of finding a house, putting in an offer and closing. He was able to develop a good rapport with seller agents and get useful information for putting in competitive bids. He never pushed us for a decision and at the same time he always provided needed information in a timely manner. Martin also has a good network of contractors if you need any regular repairs or paint related work in your new house. We found a fixer upper and wanted to check with a contractor on possible renovation cost before buying the house. Martin was able to bring a contractor on-site on very short notice and that helped us get our desired house at a good price.

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $575K in North Valley, San Jose, CA.
We actually found Martin on Zillow. It was a great experience working with him. He is very informative and open about the process. As first home buyers, we are amazed that we got our home at the very first offer we made with his help. We gave him our highest recommendation.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $725K in West San Jose, San Jose, CA.
We were first-time home buyers and our experience purchasing our house with Martin was very good.

We were fortunate to meet Martin randomly while inquiring information about a house.

Martin took the time to explain the entire house-buying process and understand our needs and budget early on.

We visited many houses together. Even though Martin was working with other clients, we always felt that he gave us undivided attention, promptly replying emails, and patiently visiting houses with us while we were learning our own house needs. As first-time buyers, it was very helpful to get guidance and help on house searching, making offers, escrow, and inspections.

Besides being knowledgeable about the South bay and housing market, Martin is also well connected with contractors. We had good recommendation from Martin for changing carpets, rekeying doors, and painting.

Bought a home in 2013.
As a first time home buyer, I had little knowledge around the process. Martin was extremely familiar with the process including details around all the Disclosure packets, putting in an offer, and understanding the market trends. Moreover, he was patient throughout the 7 month long process and supportive of every decision. I'd highly recommend Martin as a realtor.

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $525K in Santa Clara, CA.
Looking back at the past 6 months, it was like an emotion roller coaster to me. There was a lot of excitement and anticipation when I saw a home I liked. And there was nervousness and anxiety when I made an offer. Then remorse and regretless followed until I finally settled down with my new home. I probably did all things that a first home buyer would do, like rushing to make an offer, unable to decide what I want, backing out an offer when I found something that I didn’t like during inspection, etc. Fortunately I was referred to Martin by a friend. He was there all the way with me and helped me figure out what I really want. He's extremely responsible, responsive, and patient. Other than he is so knowledgeable about real state and almost everything else, he is a really really nice, unassuming person. I'll recommend him to all my friends without a doubt.
