Ratings & Reviews

We recently purchased a house and Martin was our realtor. We are also going to use his help in selling our existing home.<br/><br/>It took 8 months of intensive looking and 7 offers to buy our house. Martin stuck with us and helped us every single time until we got the house we were looking for. On every offer we gave, he provided detailed analysis on the property as well very good estimate on how much of an offer can raise our chances to buy a given property. He respected our decision of not getting into a frenzy bidding and helped us buy the house without overpaying by much.<br/><br/>Would give highest points to Martin for all his help.

Bought a home in 2012 in Almaden Valley, CA 95120.

We are very happy that we had Martin on our side in our home buying process. We spent a lot of time exploring various areas with him as were not certain what area we want to buy. Martin never tried to push us into any particular area and always provided his honest views (both pros and cons) so that we can evaluate what suits our needs. He discussed the various factors to be considered (schools, neighborhood, promximity to work etc.) so he can target the areas accordingly. Throughout the process, he was there to answer any questions we had and he showed great knowledge about the local market.

The additional advantage of working with Martin is that not only he takes active interest in the properties he visits with you, he looks at the various aspects of the home (floor plan, layout, cabinetary, appliances, room for expansion etc.) and provides his insights from a long term perspective. He has excellent interpersonal and negotiation skills which were instrumental in getting us the house we wanted. We also got value added services like recommendations on contractors for painting, cleaning services, handyman etc. to help us meet our needs before moving in.

We had met several other realtors before finalizing with Martin. What distinguished Martin from the others we met was his honesty, patiently addressing concerns/questions, his level of professionalism, timeliness in responding to various requests and ensuring he worked in our best interest throughout the process. We felt that Martin treated us like his family by taking active interest and being honest and forthright in the process.

If you are looking for someone that you can trust for your real estate needs, look no further - Martin is your trusted advisor.

We would like to thank Martin for all his efforts and wish he helps other buyers and sellers meet their needs with same satisfaction that we experienced!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $850K in Ortega, Sunnyvale, CA.

Our family had a very positive experience buying a home first time in this difficult market.

Martin was patiently answering all our questions. His availability was incredible - I can't count how many hours he spent with us showing homes. His expert opinions were extremely helpful, and we appreciated the extreme tact with which he offered those.

We ended up winning a multiple offer situation, and seller's agent made it clear that it was in part thanks to Martin's reputation among local realtors.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 in Saratoga, CA.

Martin's knowledge, expertise and patience is impressive. He worked with us for almost a year providing us sound and honest advice on the location of homes and their quality and value. He was available not only by day but also at night to accommodate our two little one's schedule. Thank you, Martin!!

Bought a home in 2009 in Mission College, Santa Clara, CA 95054.

Bought a single family home in 2009 for approximately $550K (8,000 sq ft lot!) in Santa Clara, CA.

Martin is the best agent we have ever collaborated with. In the 10 years before we met Martin, we worked with six different agents on three homes. After we met Martin, we have stayed with one. As with any consummate professional, he considerately provided the pros and cons for each property he recommended as well as properties we sought out on our own. He takes the time to understand your needs in your search for a home as well as recommending alternatives that favor buyers. He is more interested in your satisfaction than making the sale. Martin's standout qualities are his negotiating skills and his insight in understanding buyers and sellers(private and banks) motivation during the negotiating process. His experience led us to a great alternate buy that we would not have considered in our current home. The difference between a great agent like Martin and any ordinary agent is that if it comes down to a few thousand dollars in the transaction, you want Martin on your side to help you make the decision. We have referred Martin to several friends and they all rave about his professionalism and thoroughness.

Bought a Condo home in 2010 for approximately $675K in Lakewood, Sunnyvale, CA.

I was a first time homebuyer and was completely new to the process. Martin was very informative and helpful every step of the way. He quickly understood the types of homes I was looking for and showed me some great options right from the start. He is friendly, honest, and always made himself available. He was very responsive to my frequent questions, and gave great advice throughout the process. I would highly recommend Martin to any prospective homebuyer.

Bought a home in 2011 in South Shore Port, CA 94089.

I was referred to Martin by my cousin who had a great experience with Martin. Martin has a very logical and analytic thought process and provided all the information to me so as to make an informed decision. He did not apply too much pressure on me to buy the house. I would definitely recommend him to anyone else.

Bought a home in 2010 in Serra, Sunnyvale, CA 94087.

Martin helped my husband and I with the purchase of our home. Martin's background as an engineer proved especially helpful in the market price analysis and subsequent negotiations. Throughout the entire purchase process, Martin's expertise and knowledge of the area and extreme responsiveness were indispensable. I have already recommended Martin to numerous friends and family and would not hesitate to work with Martin again because of his unique skill sets and warm disposition. Martin is truly the best agent I've ever had the privilege of working with.

Bought a home in 2010 in Berryessa, Milpitas, CA 95035.

My wife knew Martin for many years. When we wanted to buy a rental property, we thought of Martin. We wanted to buy a foreclosure home at a good price. He is knowledgeable in terms of how to get a good deal. He took care of all the paper work and negotiation with the seller representative. He replies email or phone call promptly. He followed up on concerns relating to the transaction and took care of any problem for us. We plan to work with him in buying another property in the near future.
