“We cannot say enough good things about Marty Walker. He is an outstanding agent. He tailored his approach to fit our needs, which were complex and changing. He was patient with us. He gave us the significant benefit of his vast experience and knowledge. His valuable insights guided and supported us at each stage of the home buying process. His great people skills and tactful disposition soothed us and others at each difficult junction. We are delighted with the home we purchased, with his help, and will recommend Marty Walker to all.” – Caridad and Hartmuth
“Martin is a very honest, prompt and knowledgeable agent. As first time home buyers he handled us from our first open house visit to the closing of our new home. We felt like we were in good hands every step of the way. He is an asset to your company.” – Buyer
“Marty is the very best real estate agent I’ve ever worked with. Our transaction was rather complex since we live overseas, but Marty was consistently on top of it and tracked all the details and kept us consistently informed. We felt that we were in very good hands and were confident in the process moving forward despite the thousands of miles and the many time zones that separated us! What impressed me was Marty’s thoroughness, follow through and understanding of the real estate market, laws and regulations of Southern California. In addition to his consummate professionalism, he is extremely personable and fun.” – Buyer,Santa Monica
“I interacted mostly with Marty Walker. I found him advising and giving suggestions in my best interest. I found him to be sincere and prompt to return my calls.” – Fredrick Macwan
“I found Marty to be thoroughly professional and helpful in all respects. He made frequent trips to the purchased property and to my home to handle the details of the transaction and to supervise the various inspections. He had frequent interactions with my lender, the escrow agent and the seller’s realtor to ensure that everything was on tract for an expeditious closing. He was a pleasure to work with.” – Bill Jones
“Marty is a joy to work with. No task is too big or too small. He went above and beyond at every step of the process and did an outstanding job in managing our expectations and handling the varied personalities of all of our family members. He didn’t pester us either; he let us find our dream place in our own time, which we loved. He was so great, in fact, that we have recommended him to 3 of our co-workers and friends who are currently looking to buy their first homes with him.” – Buyer
“Marty was phenomenal! He was knowledgeable, attentive, gracious, and made us feel as if we were his only clients (and we were most definitely not – he was balancing at least three of us at once). This was our first buy in California (we were novices about location, real estate laws, escrow companies, connecting with loan institutions) and we were not looking for one of those multimillion dollar homes (yet); however, Marty treated us as if we were. He gave us a tour of the area and found us a number of properties to look at. Our goal was to find something and buy it in one week. We did just that thanks to Marty. We will most definitely call on him again – for the next purchase and/or sale. We have also told our friends about Marty and will continue to sing his praises. …Marty is a wonderful salesperson and we are grateful that we [found] him. Thank you!” – Joanne and Bill
“My boyfriend and I were very fortunate and very thankful for having Marty assist us with the purchase of our condo. We have our utmost respect for his expertise. This transaction went so smoothly and he was with us every step of the way. Marty was very kind, thoughtful of our needs and, above all, very professional – certainly an asset to anyone who is buying or selling real estate, no doubt about it!” – Allan
“I would have never gotten through my first experience buying a condo without Marty Walker. He was knowledgeable, professional and always helpful throughout the entire hunting period, and proved to be invaluable throughout the escrow period – which, thanks to the other party, was full of issues and extenuating circumstances. Without Marty’s persistence, attention to detail and creative thinking, the sale would have never been completed. I have and will continue to recommend Marty without hesitation.” – Stacey
“Marty and I started our business relationship with a very clear understanding of what my personal requirements were in a living space. I believe that his artistic and aesthetic personality sets him aside from other Realtors I have dealt with – while very professionally handling the transactional and contract side of the deal. Not having purchased property in California before, I was really grateful to have an experienced and personable colleague. I highly recommend Marty; although, I can’t personally vouch for his clarinet playing!” – Chris
“I had the pleasure of working with Marty on two transactions. He was the listing agent for the sale of my house, as well as the agent who represented me in the purchase of my new condo. The transactions were at times challenging because they involved concurrent closings. This can be very tricky as so many details must be coordinated at the same time. Whenever there were bumps along the road, Marty handled each and every problem with the utmost professionalism and dedication. I did not have to worry. He was also very supportive psychologically, as buying and/or selling a home can be stressful, both financially and emotionally.
Marty is very warm, easy-going and patient, yet he truly fought for my interests. Nothing seems to rattle him, and he’s able to get along with a variety of personality-types. This is essential, because during a real estate transaction, there are several people involved other than just the buyers and sellers (escrow officer, loan broker, inspectors, title officer, other agents, etc.). Marty is able to coordinate the entire team, so that the transaction runs as harmoniously and smoothly as possible.
I have referred Marty to many of my friends and they all agree on several points: He gives the same devotion and attention to detail whether you are interested in buying or selling a $200,000 home or a $2,000,000 home. His patience and devotion to his clients also never falters, no matter how long the process takes. I have bought and sold many homes, and Marty, by far, is the best agent I have ever worked with.” – Sheila
“Marty went well out of his way to make sure this deal closed. I couldn’t have had a better realtor.” – John Ford, Las Vegas
“Marty was thoughtful, cooperative and resourceful.” – Buyer
“Thank you for all your work in purchasing my new home and selling my condo. Your professional yet easy-going attitude has been a source of comfort and a delight.
Your sensitivity to what my niece and I sought in a home expedited the location of our new place. We didn’t have to fret about unfamiliar neighborhoods because you literally drove us around, navigating the Thomas Guide for two non-map readers. Your patience and alacrity in returning calls and initiating calls when you heard about developments smoothed the process.
The concept of selling my condo had daunted me more than the purchase of our house, so your attributes have been even more important in the last few months. I am grateful for your help in readying my condo for sale. Your attentiveness and availability proved doubly significant. I knew I could rely on you to be there psychologically and, if necessary, physically as the process of preparing the condo unfolded.
I am particularly admiring that you trouble-shoot so well. When my usually fine handyman made mistakes, you were assertive but not aggressive, which allowed Brad and I to come to an admirable resolution.
When the preparation had ended and my condo was put on the market, you came up with a buyer in gratifying speed who paid a higher price than I ever expected. I would recommend you highly in each context. You worked beautifully in helping us buy a place, and then in selling my property. I would recommend you to anyone who asks.” – Susan
“Marty was amazing! Being a first-time home buyer can be a little unnerving but Marty held my hand every step of the way. His patience was incredible and he did not slack, not once, in being available to me. Marty’s ultimate goal from the first day I met him was to find me a home and his energy and determination to accomplish that did not waiver!” – Fernita
“Marty Walker’s assistance in helping me buy a house was invaluable. He was able to find a little jewel in the most desirable spot in Santa Monica, and the price that he was able to negotiate made it possible for me to make the purchase. His assistance in coordinating with financial institutions, escrow companies, assessment agents, etc. made palatable an endeavor that would have otherwise been intimidating and overwhelming.
I have recommended Marty to various potential buyers and they all compliment him on his professionalism, care and knowledge.” – Bernardo
“We want to thank you for all of the help that you gave us both in buying our current home and selling our former home. Studies have shown that changing one’s home can be one of the most stressful events in life, but with you as our broker, what could have been a very traumatic process became a happy experience. Your great patience (you worked with us in seeing dozens of homes in 18 months) allowed us to find the perfect home for us, and your marketing savvy, enabled us to sell our former home at an unexpectedly high price in an extremely short period of time. Almost as important, your fundamental decency, loyalty, sense of humor, and calm manner enabled us to navigate both buying and selling without ever feeling undue pressure. Additionally, your “black book” of various experts helped us with many aspects of the move. While you started as our broker, you ended up as our friend, and that is perhaps the highest accolade we can give you. We recommend you to anyone interested in buying or selling a house in the Los Angeles area.” – Ruth and Mike
