Martin was connected to me when I was looking for a condo in San Jose. When later I changed my plan to look for a house in the Peninsula area and needed to find an agent in an urgent multiple bid situation, Martin did not hesitate to drive up to Peninsula to represent us in short notice. What impressed us the most, is Martin's knowledge, professionalism, and integrity - while at the time the house "looked" to be a good value, Martin advised us on the potential pitfalls of the location, understandably against his own personal interest - with a very steep slope right behind the house and a leaking retaining wall, among others. So we decided not to bid on the house at the end, partly due to Martin's advice. We're very happy that we did not fall into emotional buying at the time and we ended up buying another much better house that we found during open homes. I would highly recommend Martin as trustworthiness and professionalism are among the most important traits that you would want from your realtor.
