Martin was easy to work with and always responsive to any questions asked. I would definitely recommend him. He helped us through the whole process from beginning to end.
Martin Withrow was always considerate, personable and paid great attention to detail. He handled both the sale and purchase of my personal single family home and it all closed without a hitch.
We live in LA and bought in Palm Springs. Marty is a professional who really knows the area and helped us in so many ways from finding our home to recommending local trades people. What a lovely person and a great experience.
From our initial contact, through the various home tour to the negotiations, Martin was absolutely professional and confident with just the right amount of personal input. A very hard working, easy to get on with guy, a true pleasure to work with.
Marty is genuinely kind, and he was quick to make arrangements to show me properties in which I was interested. He is professional, friendly, and always willing to help. I found my dream house, and Marty helped ensure that I acquired it. He'll "go to bat" for you.
Marty was amazing. He was so quick to respond to any and all questions. He was knowledgeable about the area and the process. He had great ideas and worked tirelessly to help sell our property, ensuring it stood out among all the other properties out there. I'd recommend him to anyone.
Marty was super great to work with. He understands that selling can be stressful and was able to help us through the process. He was always available to answer any questions and gave us excellent feedback that made our home standout for buyers. We know it sold quick thanks to his hard work.
Martin was great. He was flexible and quick to find us answers. He didn't push us into something we weren't comfortable buying. He gave us the time we needed to think about our decisions. He was all about his customers concerns and making sure we were satisfied. We also really enjoyed Martin because he was very friendly and welcoming.
We were thrilled to work with Marty. He timed the sale of our condo perfectly and had an open house to local brokers immediately after it went on the market. As a result we had a committed buyer within 10 days. Marty kept us positive if we got a little discouraged. We would highly recommend him. Thank you Marty for all your help. We really appreciate you
Martin is a true gentleman. He is a good listener, thoughtful and intelligent. He will plan how to sell your house in a manner that suits both your needs and the market condition. He will find you the home of your dreams utilizing your desires, needs and lifestyle. As a talented stylist he can envision potential that might not be obvious. I have been fortunate to find Martin as a realtor. He will be my realtor for as long as I need one. If you want the best then you want Martin.
We found Marty at one of his open houses and although we did not end up purchasing that home, he was very helpful in telling us about the real estate market in the Palm Springs area, about which we were not yet familiar. He pointed us to a development that perfectly suited our tastes and budget, and then assisted us in working with the developer to purchase a home. Marty was always very responsive to our needs and it was a pleasure to work with him.
I cannot thank Martin enough for his help for me to purchase my first home. His patience, expertise, and transparency really helped me to find the home that I love and now own! He never once pushed me to do things that I was uncomfortable with, and he provided so many guidance, options, and explanations for me to make the best decision. If you are looking for an honest hard-working champion on your side, look no further and give Martin a call.
Martin was recommended as the Palm Springs expert by a colleague in his office. From the first point of contact, I knew Martin was highly professional, experienced and made a point to put the client first. He knew exactly what needed to be done to get the properties ready to be sold and went over and above to take on some of those tasks himself to get the process moving, especially since we were not located in the market. It is such a pleasure to work with someone who answers all your questions, provides solutions and gets the end result as expected for the client. We are very happy it all worked out the way we wanted, congratulations to Marty and the team for a speedy and successful sale.
My property was not an easy one to sell. I had full confidence in Marty when I asked him to represent me. He is very, very good at communicating. The advice Marty offered was sound and I listened to all of it. When that 1 offer came in, we had no idea how tough the next few weeks were going to be. Many, many phone calls. Back and forth with the buyers and their agent. I am so grateful for Marty and his skills. He walked me through everything. He handled the other parties with courtesy and respect. End game close of escrow in a timely manner. I can tell you right now, that when I am ready to sell my other property, I will be calling you, Marty. Thank you so very much in getting me through this.
Marty is fantastic. I was recommended to him by a friend after my husband and I had a bad experience with another realtor, an experience that left us feeling a bit discouraged about finding a house in the competitive LA market. Knowing this, Marty worked very hard to find us the perfect house and he delivered. He found us a great house in a great neighborhood perfect for raising a family. And it was during the negotiation process that Marty's expertise really came through. We put in an offer on a house that was listed for sale in "as-is" condition. However, once we had the inspection and we discovered a number of issues that needed to be fixed, Marty was able to get the sellers to come down $25,000 despite the "as-is" sale. My husband and I both appreciated Marty's work and we would not hesitate to recommend him to others.
I recently decided that I wanted to invest in an income property in the Palm Springs area and had to keep within a certain price range. Martin was able to help me identify the perfect property that was within my budget in record time. Martin also worked with me on what needed to be done to maximize income revenue. With some inexpensive decorator touches, the condo was transformed into a beautiful boutique property that had a mass appeal. Not only did Martin help me find the perfect investment property, but he also photographed, advertised and found the perfect tenant. I can't thank him enough for helping me create a revenue stream that will give me income and security for years to come. I highly recommend Martin and will be using him for all my future investments, home sales and purchases. His enthusiasm and designer eye was a major asset in helping to expand my real estate portfolio.
A rare find is the best way to describe Marty. I have bought and sold homes all over the United States and work in a real estate related profession. After working with Marty for my home search, I would rank him as an outstanding performer in all areas that make an exceptional real estate agent. I am a very particular home buyer and demand a lot from an agent, not only for information about the area, but also recent home sales, etc. Not only is Marty knowledgeable, but he was willing to listen to my likes and dislikes and patiently arranged for me to see any home that interested me. Being that this was a family purchase; he was very accommodating to different family member's schedules. Of course, because of his deep familiarity of the inventory of available homes in the market place, he was able to save me time by providing me with detailed information on homes and communities. He always immediately communicated new listings, which was very helpful.
I’ve known Martin Withrow for a number of years. We’ve worked together on many creative projects; primarily consumer magazine design. Marty never fails to impress me with his extraordinary design judgment and abilities at creative problem solving. His exacting and precise direction always extends to the entire project. The outcome always reflects his care, concern and attention to detail. A few years ago, I found myself in need of Martin’s help. A death and personal illness left me unable to handle the necessary staging and photography for the marketing of my home in Pasadena. Marty was instrumental in making this a reality; not only did it happen, but he stepped up the process to a whole other level. Under his direction the house was stripped to the bare walls, reassembled, edited and staged impeccably. Not only an eye for great design, but repeated attention to utility are the hallmark of his work and this particular project. He then worked closely with the photographer to assure his intent was reflected accurately to market the house. Martin’s attention to detail, function and design resulted in the house selling in under a week, with multiple offers, driving the price considerably higher than what was asked. I can highly recommend Martin and his Design, Marketing and Advertising skills. He will go above and beyond to help you with your Real Estate needs.
Moving can be one of the most stressful times in life. This is doubly true if you’re looking to buy your new place to live, and even worse if you’re looking to do it in a hurry, as we were. You need someone in your corner who not only knows the ropes, but is easy to get ahold of and work with, and then goes into battle to close the deal for you when the time comes. Marty Withrow is all that and more. Before we were introduced to Marty, we tried to use a realtor friend of mine. He was terrible. He wouldn’t respond to emails requesting to see places, so we could only see places that had open houses. We watched in frustration as one by one the best units in town sold without us even seeing them. If he did take us to see a place, he’d invariably show up with the keys to the wrong unit, completely wasting our time. When we tried to put in an offer on a place, he sent it three days later because he couldn’t be bothered to help on the weekend. Needless to say, our offer was not accepted. After struggling with him for a month, we finally fired him. We got Marty’s name from a friend, and from the moment we met him, the experience with him versus our other realtor was like night and day. We were looking at multiple places together the day after our first evening phone call with him! Not only did he bring the right keys, he arranged to see other units in the same building at the same time. And on this first day of seeing condos with him, when my car battery died unexpectedly after seeing the first two places, we thought that would be the end of the day. Nope. Marty spent three hours driving us all around town in his own car so that we could keep all our appointments. We were honestly impressed. And he continued to be wonderful from then on out! He was so responsive every time we called, texted or emailed, even if we had what were probably stupid questions. He educated us about the process. He jumped on listings we wanted to see to the extent that sometimes we were in the very first rush of people seeing a place. In fact, we looked at the place we eventually bought the first day it was being shown, and were able to put in an offer within days of it being listed. Getting a jump on a listing is a huge advantage in Los Angeles, where competition for affordable places is fierce.But that’s not all. Once our offer was in, Marty didn’t just disappear and consider his job done. The sellers and the sellers’ realtor were so difficult to deal with and had so many hoops to jump through, that it was almost like they were trying to not sell the place. But Marty was there battling for us literally every step of the way. He was in touch with our mortgage broker, working out the paperwork for the loan. He was in touch with the seller’s realtor, working out our conditions. He was in touch with the loan initiator. He helped us through our inspections. When the seller wouldn’t turn over certain of their inspection reports in a timely manner, he even took it upon himself to directly call the company that had done the inspection and procure us a copy of the report. The whole process with him was amazing. He seemed to be everywhere at once. I started to wonder when he slept! We were constantly calling with huge issues that had come up, and he was always ready to deal with whatever it was. And despite the huge stress level we were under and how anxious we were about everything, and honestly very demanding about timelines and answers, he never failed to be cheerful, helpful, informative, and kind. Even months after we had closed, when the escrow company called to say they’d lost some paperwork and our lender was requesting we fill it out Asap, he was right on top of it, arranging for them to send the notary back out immediately at no cost to us for their mistake. If you are looking for an extraordinary realtor, you need to work with Marty Withrow. He will go above and beyond every step of the way for you. He will even help you find contractors once you own the place! Honestly, there is nothing that this man will not do to put you in the home of your dreams. If you’re looking for a realtor, don’t hesitate to call Marty today.
Allow Martin to use his mid-western work ethic, customer service, negotiating skills and creative background in Advertising and Marketing to help buy or sell your most valuable asset. Hands on in every aspect of the transaction, Martin will be with you through every step of the way!
