‟Martin is amazing! Seriously, if you are looking to buy a home, he's the guy to call. Martin has exceptional knowledge about (and passion for) the housing market in Philadelphia and did his best to show us houses we would like in our preferred neighborhoods and price range. He responds to texts and emails within minutes, and has some truly amazin … g negotiating skills. He really blew us away with his professionalism, his drive to get things done, and willingness to go the extra mile. Buying a house is a stressful enough experience, so having an agent who knows his stuff and makes the experience fun is a huge advantage. It's also so important to work with great inspectors in this process and we really loved the home inspector Martin worked with. Everything was just a great experience - THANKS MARTIN!!” Read More ▾

‟A total pro - thorough, responsive - knows the city very well and took the time to understand what we were looking for. And he was patient with us as we figured things out! I’ve had many realtors over the years - Martin is at the top - I’d recommend him to any friend of mine. ”
‟In addition to being hyper responsive and pleasant, Martin is trustworthy and that trust gave us great comfort throughout the process. He was happy to show us any house and there was never a hint of pressure to buy or not to buy. He quickly picked up on the kind of house that we wanted and kept us posted on good properties to check out. When w … e picked a house, he talked us down from a high bid. A lower bid means he gets less commission and the deal is less likely to go through, but he pushed it and saved us a decent chunk of money. We put down the lowest amount that could beat the other two bidders.” Read More ▾
