So glad that I had your help!

You were nothing short of splendid.  But, most importantly, you were kind, tolerant, thorough, helpful, generous and so very skillful.

Dear David,

It was a pleasure to work with David Martin in purchasing our first home. My wife and I entered the process very green and felt very intimidated by everything that was involved with home buying process. David was a great help in explaining the in's and out's of the process and in guiding us towards a home that we ultimately purchased. We found David to be very knowledgeable, responsive, down to earth, and most importantly - honest. We never felt pressured into doing anything that we were not comfortable with, rather he was there to help allay many fears and concerns that we had along the way. Whenever we had questions or had an issue to be dealt with, he was there in person into the late hours of the day (even skipping his meals), on the phone, by text message, and by email. He was instrumental in helping us win the bid on a house that we loved at a price that was within our budget.

David was recommended to me by a coworker whom I know to have very high expectations, so I knew right off the bat that I would be in good hands. After having worked with David for the last few months, I too am happy to recommend David Martin to anyone in the area looking to buy or sell a home. He will not let you down.
Thanks for everything David, it was a pleasure working with you and we will keep you posted on the progress of the house!

Dear Mr. Martin,

The expressed purpose of this letter is to thank you for the outstanding management of our Pacifica, CA home listing with Coldwell Banker and its subsequent sale in April,
2013.

We wish to highlight your skilled strategic recommendations, specifically with respect to the list price of the home and, importantly, to the rationale we applied for considering the multiple offers received. We remain over the hill of amazement at both the swift sale and the swift close - and we attribute that to your calm and confident guidance throughout the process. Your astute integration of the electronic signature technology into the documentation process clearly expedited that phase of the project, particularly when Iwas traveling abroad on business. We are confident that you were the only Agent for us.

It was a distinct pleasure to work with a seasoned professional like you, David. We highly recommend your skillful management ability to any potential home seller on the San Francisco Pe insula, and we wish you continued success.
 
With all the best,
-D. Humbert
 
Dear David,
I would like to give you the biggest THANK YOU for all your expertise in the sale of my father’s home. We have sold numerous homes during our marriage and this was without a doubt the easiest process ever. Two weeks to sell a house above the asking price in this market was incredible.
As the Trustee of the Estate this could have been a disastrous ordeal as some family members not very happy. You were able to talk with them and give the assurance needed. You also dealt effectively with my attorney which resulted in savings to the estate as the attorney’s involvement was minimized due to your expertise
At first I was very skeptical of some of your suggestions to minimize and paint. But, you were right on all of the staging you suggested. I was most impressed with the amount of hands-on work you did, (as were several of the neighbors) not just with the pre-sale but all of the after sale help you gave. When Don told me you cleaned out the refrigerator in order for us to vacate the house on time, I was sorry I hadn’t called for your help sooner.
As you know, we were looking at two other Real Estate Agents when we found you. I am so thankful; we had the good sense to choose you and your company. I consider you a friend as well as the best Real Estate Agent in the California.
I will miss you coming over helping, talking and just your assurance that all was okay.
Again, Thank You,
S Grizzle
 
David Martin just sold my recently widowed mother's house for her.

He was very knowledgeable in giving us suggestions to get the house ready, extremely helpful in getting the work done, sensitive in dealing with mom, and absolutely great in communication and follow up. 

He listened to our needs/concerns, never pressured us, made the whole process virtually painless, and got her far more money than expected. 
I have dealt with over 20 real estate agents over the last 40 years, and David was one of the best. I would highly recommend him.

Dear David;
Even at the very early stages of our encounters in preparing our house for sale, we knew we had made the absolute right choice with having you represent our home. We also knew of our intent to express our appreciation in writing to you upon the completion of our venture. However, as we got to know you more and saw the level of professionalism, dedication, integrity and genuine passion you bring to the table; it quickly became more and more difficult to adequately express our gratitude properly.

As you know, the decision to sell our home vs. renting was a difficult one. From our initial meeting, you presented us with all options, a very realistic flow of events along with final expectations. Throughout the process we were amazed that every one of your suggestions and predictions were completely on the mark.

The final outcome was the sale of our home in less than a week with multiple offers, in this very challenging real estate climate. We appreciated your congratulations upon closure of escrow, but the sentiments are much more appropriate for the outstanding job done by you in representing us as your clients and your company Coldwell Banker.

From listing to close of escrow in five weeks. Outstanding results in our book.

We are very fortunate to have met you and consider you more than our real estate expert, but a friend. Our only regret is not having met you earlier. You are and will always be our only recommendation to anyone who needs assistance in buying or selling a home. We are sure Coldwell Banker and your local branch is proud to have you as part of their winning team.

We just want to let you know how much we appreciate all you did for us in finding a perfect new home(project). It was such a pleasure working with you. You took so much stress out of it for us.

Thank you very much for all the hard work and long hours that went into finding, securing, and purchasing Yuning’s and my first home together. It goes without saying how tough a market this is and how we were truly blessed to have an advocate and person like you helping us wade through the properties in the Peninsula together. 

You were available at all times and helped answer any questions Yuning and I had at a moment’s notice. We were fortunate that you kept your eyes and ears open and found our home for us. 

You are a class act and a consummate professional who, through the process, became very much a friend and confidant to us. 

Your knowledge of the San Mateo and Redwood City areas benefitted us greatly as we searched around for a home. Although we know you typically have more sellers as clients, we were duly impressed and have found that you are as good, if not better, on the other side when representing your buyers and the fiduciary responsibility to them. 

You were great in helping us negotiate with the seller’s agents after the inspection and other reports we obtained. The way in which you worked with our loan officer and helped coach him up to call each of the sellers agents that we put offers on was a nice bonus and something that goes above and beyond what most real estate agents do. 

We are in the process of making the home our own and can’t wait to invite you to come for a house warming party when it is all done.

Sincerely,
J Pathman 


We wanted to send you a thank you note for all your help and support in our search for a new home. We were impressed by your knowledge of the Peninsula housing market and the attention to detail you demonstrated every step along the way. We felt comfortable throughout the process that the transaction was in “good hands”, which gave us the freedom to focus on what was important to us – the homes themselves. Your personal touch made all the difference!
With warm regards,
- Edith & Stew
