I had a good first time home buyer experience working with Michael. He was able to guide me through the process and was able to answer all the questions that I had. He also provided me with good advice since I was a first-time home buyer. I felt like I made the right decision and if I have to buy a home again I would choose Michael to be my realtor. When things didn't go right, Michael worked really hard to get everything back on track and to make this process as smooth as possible for me.

They made it easy for me to sell my house for a top dollar amount in just a few days. This includes preparing the house before putting it in the market without me having to fly out to the property myself, helped analyze which was the best offer among the 14 offers I received, they helped me to decide which offer to take. They sold the property in just a week whilst keeping everything smooth and I got more than what I expected.

Michael and Maricruz sold our house quickly and at the high end of the comps. We received an offer the first full day that the house was listed on Zillow. Their marketing strategy allowed our house to garner immediate attention. Their knowledge and research of pricing was exceptional. They recognized and communicated well to us the necessity for our house to be clean and staged well to show in pictures and in person. Throughout the contracting period, they were highly responsive due to their two-person team. They listened to our requests and were able to easily communicate them to the buyer due to their solid reputations in the realty community, in addition to their professional and friendly demeanors. I recommend using them to sell your house, and I plan to use them to buy my next house.

The teamwork and overall professionalism of Michael and Maricruz was exceptional and made for an outstanding partnership in the purchase of my second home (now my primary residence)! Their dedication, willingness and adaptability to meet my needs on property viewings was superb. Overall knowledge of the process, assistance with inspections, guidance during closing and personal touch in making home become a reality - I cannot thank them enough! Even after closing their follow up and personal relationship remains! It was through their efforts I was able to purchase my dream property in the dead center of downtown Phoenix! Highly recommend them to anyone looking in and around the greater Phoenix region!

From start to finish, Michael and Maricruz exceeded expectations, including preparing the house for sale, providing thorough and timely market data, writing the listing description, and negotiating and closing the sale of the home. They were responsive and professional. We feel fortunate we were able to partner with them to sell our home. They went above and beyond and we highly recommend them with no hesitation.

I strongly recommend Michael and Maricruz. We are still looking, and they have been patient and exceedingly helpful. They have not negotiated for us yet, because we have not found the right house. Nevertheless, I am confident that they would do that with characteristic excellence.

Michael & Maricruz Martinez are exceptional real estate agents. They will go to the ends of the earth to meet their client’s needs. We used the M&M team to find a renter and purchase a home. They were very pleasant to work with, respectful, honest, and knowledgeable of the area. Every time we contacted them, they responded in a timely manner. After ten properties shown we found "the one" and they always took the time to discuss/gather additional information. We have and will continue to recommend Michael & Maricruz Martinez for anyone looking for a new home. No regrets.

During the weekend of September 19th my sigificant other and I viewed a house on-line. We expressed our interest via an e-mail the same day. We received a call from Michael Martinez within an hour. Michael made arrangements with the owner to view the hourse on Sunday the 20th. After viewing the house we discussed it overnight. Before we could react the house was in contract with a back-up offer. We were crushed! the level of professionalism we received from Michael was outstanding. On Thursday, as we were about to board a plane for Wisconsin the house came back on the market! Through a series of text messages and e-mails we made an offer which was accepted. We closed a week after returning from our vacation. Throughout the entire transaction Michael was there for us during every step of the way. He responded to every question or concern immediately. Even though we both knew better he made us feel like he was totally dedicated to our purchase. If we are ever in the market again or if anyone we know is in the market, Michael and Maricruz Martinez will be the first phone call. They are absolutely the best!

My wife and I just moved into our new house recently. Just three months ago, we couldn't even begin to think that this would be possible, considering our situation. We had limited resources, with big demands, yet we were wary and had no clue about buying a home for the first time. With an extremely busy work schedule, we had no time to study this complicated homebuying operation, which we felt was an important step in our family. So, in our minds, some magic should happen for us to be homeowners. Thank God we have a very good friend who also was a recent first time homebuyer and he recommended the amazing team of professionals, Michael and Maricruz Martinez. From our first meeting, we were impressed by their willingness to walk us through the entire process, so we can clearly understand. From the start, they recommended and introduced us only to outstanding professionals for each step, such as, mortgage officer, home and termite inspector, etc. Michael and Maricruz were able to build our full trust. In addition, they were able understand our wants and needs as they evolved along the way. The Martinez team did a very good job and had no problem negotiating the entire transaction from start to finish. Whenever we encountered any bumps along the road, they maneuvered around each situation easily. Thanks to Michael & Maricruz for their extraordinary patience and true friendship. They made us feel very special in helping us achieve this very important event for our family. We would recommend the Martinez Team to anyone and will certainly utilize their help again in the future.

Buying a house can be a tiresome process but with the support of a knowledgeable and committed real estate agent the process can turn into a fun and rewarding experience. Maricruz and Michael make a great team and they are always available and willing to walk you through different options and spend time with you when looking for a home. As a first time home buyer I could immediately notice the vast experience and sense of familiarity that Maricruz and Michael have. I started looking for a house on the west side of Phoenix and ended up buying one in a central location, they were both supporting me and showing me listings around throughout the buying process, their follow up with the sellers was fast and even the closing of the property was a simple process with the help of Maricruz and Michael's expertise. I will definitely recommend this team to any of my friends and will not think it twice when planning on getting my next property.

We listed three properties with Michael & Maricruz. They had the properties sold almost as fast as they were listed, and all at our asking price. Please note, we had independent surveys done, so the asking price was determined based on the surveys. There were six owners, all located in various states. Michael & Maricruz made sure all our questions were answered, and accommodated all parties faster and better than I have ever experienced in the real estate market. I wouldn't use anyone else.
