I was extremely happy with the service and result in dealing with Michael. My property was sold at a fair price and in a very short amount of time. He connected me with other professionals that I needed, and this made his "team" approach to real estate sales very helpful. I would highly recommend Michael for your real estate needs.

I'm a physician with a real estate business with my husband in RI. Mike helped me sell my mom's home in Westville, New Haven. He went out of his way to meet and accommodate workers that needed to come to the home while I was out of town, has an impressive level of market expertise, particularly in Westville, was extremely responsive throughout negotiations and pleasant to work with--never pushy or out for the buck. I appreciate and am quite grateful for his assistance throughout this process. We sold my mom's home in a little over a month. Mike gets the highest recommendation in my book--well done!

My fiance and I had been struggling to find a house for months. Working with Michael was a wonderful experience. Michael is personable, friendly, and truly wants the best for his clients. He was knowledgeable about the homes we were interested in viewing and took the time to give us detailed notes about the homes before we even decided to go to them. When it came time to put in an offer, he kept our financial needs in mind and was able to negotiate the perfect price for our beautiful new home.
We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in New Haven, CT
Mr. Martinez showed me a property he was suppose to meet me the next day to make to fill out the paper work to make a offer, I Never Heard From Him again, I called him several times , but I still did not receive a return phone call.

While I am not sure who wrote this review it certainly emphasizes that Realtors are human. I feel absolutely terrible that this may have happened but I think they may have the wrong person here. I cannot recollect ever forgetting to write a contract.
On another note I am happy to announce the addition of another Realtor, Susan Keane, to work with me. She is amazing and not only knows the Greater New Haven area but has been in real estate in different capacities for almost as long as me. I expect that we can give all present and future clients the level of professionalism and client services that I expect to be able to provide.

Omg!!! Mr Mike Martinez is amazing!!!!
I had honestly pretty much given up on realtors and was searching for our new home (my 2nd) on my own, firmly believing that the realty profession was at a loss.
I stumbled into Mr Martinez on a house viewing and from the moment go; He literally blew me away. I wasn't impressed; I was transformed. I truly had no idea what an incredible asset a top notch brilliant realtor could be.
Not only did Mr Martinez walk me through a confusing and limited house market, but he showed me properties that I never dreamed would match my family but absolutely did. He knew the answers to all the questions I needed answered and provided me with additional questions and answers before I could even think to ask.
I have met many "professionals" in my life and few match the caliber of Mr Mattinez. If you are serious in your intention to work with a realtor Mr Martinez is a 5 STAR Powerhouse!
Michael is terrific, and was super helpful through all phases of buying a home. He did a great job only showing us properties he knew we would be interested in. He was invaluable during the offer process as there were multiple offers on the table. Most importantly to us, he was a great liaison between us and the banks, attorneys, and other agents involved. Knowledgeable, dependable, and proactive. Highly recommended.

Mike is the ideal real estate consultant. He is incredibly knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate purchase. Upon meeting Mike, we were especially impressed by his thoughtful and considerate approach. He met us for a consultation to understand our wants/needs in a home and then he made a multitude of recommendations. Upon receiving our feedback, Mike honed and adjusted his listings to our tastes. When traveling back to the area, we had a short list of homes that we were confident we would love. Mike walked us through the offer process, connected us with trustworthy lenders and a fantastic attorney. Throughout the escrow process, Mike was always a text message or phone call away for any question that we had. Finally, Mike's most admirable quality is his candid transparency in all aspects of a home purchase. He will confidently steer you in the right direction regardless of what you are looking for.

Mike is a very knowledgeable and patient agent when showing us around the house and answering all questions we had. He fought for the best deals for us in all circumstances and provided us a lot of peripheral information. Mike has my highest recommendation.

Buying first investment property for an out of state investor can be a very challenging task, but having a great agent like Mike Martinez put all our doubts to rest. I must say I have not seen this level of customer service, weather it was an email, text message or a phone call, each and every one of them were answered within minutes. Mike made sure we find a property that meets our needs and our investment goals. Not only he himself is on top of the game when it comes to New Haven market, but also his reference network like home inspection company's, Mortgage Brokers, Contractors, Management Company's, Lawers etc were also reliable and came through for our first deal. From start to finish, he was extremely professional and competent, We closed on our first investment property and are already looking for our second deal with Mike. If you are looking to buy property in New Haven area, Mike Martinez is the only name you need to know.
