Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $700K in West San Jose, San Jose, CA.
Martin Ku helped us buy our home in 2004. There was a seller market during that time and it was hard to buy a house in the Cupertino/Lynbrook area. There were always multiple offers. Martin did an excellent job negotiating with the seller and presenting our offer to them. He really impressed us with his professionalism. After that we knew that if we ever need to buy a house again, we will go to Martin for his assistance. In 2009 we bought another house with Martin's help. Once again, it was a great experience. Martin is very responsive; he always answers our emails immediately. Both my husband and I work late hours, so we usually have time only in late evenings. It was never a problem for Martin. He is always ready to work when it is convenient for the customer. We will strongly recommend him to anybody who wants to buy or sell a house.
Martin Ku was our real estate agent, when we were on real estate market to purchase a property. There were numerous problems with this property we selected to purchase, but with Martin on our side all problems were overcome. We are very grateful to Martin for all his effort on our behalf and recommend Martin Ku to any prospective buyer, because of his dedication, knowledge and negotiation skills. He was very patient with us, timely responded on all our calls.
1. Very responsive to e-mails and phone calls.
2. Always on time for appointments.
3. Creates a good route plan based on how many homes we have to visit on a given day.
4. Very professional. One time, we and another client of his both wanted to bid for the same home. Since the other client asked first, he politely declined to bid on our behalf due to conflict of interest and temporarily assigned another agent from his office to work with us.
Martin helped me buy a home in the bay area. He is an experienced real estate agent; he especially knows the local market around the Silicon Valley & Northern California area very well. He is able to tell you in 10 mts about the quality of the house - work needed, location, neighborhood et...He responds to your requests/questions fast and is always available to show you around a property! He gives very open feedback on homes I had visited with him. He arrives 10 mts early and inspects the house even before scheduled time. He provided open feedback on listed properties – condition of the house, location, neighborhood etc… he helped me quickly close the deal with his expert negotiation skills.
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 in San Jose, CA.
Martin helped me and my 2 brothers with the purchase of our first home. My brothers and I had very specific criteria for location, size, and price so while we were in the market to purchase we were also very particular. Martin was very patient with us and spent multiple weekends with us until we finally came across a house that was a match. We never felt any pressure to put in an offer unless were were absolutely sold on the property. Martin was very knowledgeable and informative and always pointed out the pros and cons of each home. Throughout the whole process I was very confident that Martin had our best interest in mind.
Sold a Condo home in 2010 in Mariners Island, San Mateo, CA.
Martin is the most pleasant and knowledgable realtors I've worked with in my past years. I've purchased and sold few homes in the past and he is by far the one I would recommend highly. I wanted someone who was not only skilled in finding homes in short sale and REO but someone who understand the negotiation process with the short sale lender/seller. Martin helped me with the market research and was able to find the short sale property I wanted. Martin advised our offer at just the right price, just slightly higher than rest of the buyers for us to secure acceptance from seller. Few weeks later we closed and we now see similar short sale homes priced higher than ours. I knew at the time we got a good deal and we did. Throughout the whole buying process, Martin was very efficient which impressed me alot. I never had to deviate much on our timeline as to inspections to closing. Martin is a very meticulous person but he is also very down to earth making him someone you can "trust". Make an appointment to meet with him and you will sense the sincerity.
With his sharp mind, quick action and the thorough knowledge of the housing market, Martin helped us buying not only one house but two, one in 2009, another in 2011. We are very much appreciating his help.
