Erin, just a note to thank you for all your help in the home searching process. Mona and I have purchased our share of homes over the years, and have interfaced with more than a few real estate professionals.
We both feel that you exemplify the essence of a great agent. You made us feel that the end result for us was at least as important as the sale for you. You were prompt, diligent, forthright, and worked your you-know-what off. Most of all, you gave us sound advice, pushed us when we needed some prodding, and were supportive of our little sister's dream of home ownership.

Erin helped our family both buy and sell a house in Lafayette. Erin was absolutely wonderful every step of the way.
After remodeling and living in our home in Reliez Valley for almost 12 years, we decided we wanted a home that would be the next “project” for us. Erin was extremely patient with us while we changed our mind a few times about location, size of yard, timing, etc. Luckily, she also talked to us quite a bit about how extensive a project we really wanted and ended up talking us out of a few houses. After deciding that we wanted a home closer to town in a great neighborhood, Erin helped us buy a house in the trails neighborhood on Victoria Ct.
After helping us secure a “new” home purchase with her insight and expertise, Erin then helped us get our house ready to put on the market. She was diligent with her research and selected the right listing price for our home. She lined up painting, staging, inspections and repairs so that our house was ready to go in a short timeline. Erin was a tireless advocate for us from beginning to end. She emailed or called us with daily updates. She reassured us when we were getting anxious about getting everything done. Within a week of putting it on the market, we accepted offers and closed 18 days later!
Erin helped us get through a stressful situation with so much calm and ease. She is an extremely good listener and cares about her clients. We couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful advocate for our family as we made this huge decision to move.

"We were extremely happy with our experience buying a home in Orinda with Erin Martin as our agent. Erin is so incredibly knowledgeable about everything from the loan process to inspections, and, of course, winning the bid. She's both easy to talk to and accessible any time we needed her - which was a lot during the process! She was very good at helping us focus on the right homes and knew a good one (and a bad one!) when she saw it. Erin is an absolute gem, and the ideal agent for buying a home in Lamorinda."
You placed our interests above your own and your honesty and integrity made what could have been a stressful process run very smooth. You were thorough, patient, persistent and always professional. We would like to thank you again for all of your hard work in finding us the house of our dreams.

We recently purchased our home with Erin Martin as our Realtor. The whole experience from start to finish was a WOW! We could not have asked for a better Realtor to support us in purchasing a new home. Her local market knowledge is invaluable and her relationships in the community extensive; she is diligent, responsive, and enthusiastic. Throughout the entire process Erin maintained the perfect balance of professionalism, good humor, perseverance, understanding and diplomacy. She was a true delight to work with on a personal level as well, reassuring us and comforting us through the stress of a competitive market environment. She clearly takes pride in doing a great job and finding each of her clients their perfect home. We have bought and sold several homes before this purchase and Erin has been, by far, the best real estate agent that we have worked with. Erin is a true professional; honest, humble and in a class by herself. We cannot recommend her enough – if you are thinking of buying or selling a home, you need to talk to Erin!

My wife and I recently purchased a home in Lafayette, it is the home we have been looking for a long time and we are very thankful that Erin Martin guided us through our search. Over the course of 8 months Erin took us to numerous house showings and gave us her honest assessment of neighborhoods, houses and options available to us. I could not imagine a better guide and confidant in the process, Erin was patient, knowledgeable and completely trustworthy. She knows Lafayette so well and truly worked hard to help us get the home we wanted. We recommend her to anyone who is looking for a home in Lafayette.

We highly recommend Erin Martin as a realtor. She was our agent for both selling our home and purchasing a new one. Her presentation of our home was excellent, bringing us a top price, far above asking. Erin was extremely helpful and insightful during our new home buying decision. She made the transition go smoothly. We felt she was a good negotiator and was always willing to answer questions. Erin’s willingness to help was above and beyond anything we expected. If you want personalized service, she is the right one for you!

We recently purchased our first single family home in Lafayette and feel so lucky to have found Erin Martin with Village Associates. She is smart, showed incredible attention to detail, had excellent follow-through and worked countless hours to find us the right home that fit our family’s needs.
Our chances of finding a home were slim, especially at our price point ($1M), but Erin uncovered every opportunity to increase our chances. She recommended we package our offer with competitive terms, limited contingencies and a personalized letter to the owner. In a multiple offer situation, we were up against higher offers, but it was our offer strategy that secured our dream home.
We have the highest praise and recommendation for Erin. She is easy to work with and her patience was beyond that of a realtor, but more resembling of a friend. Truly a class act and we look forward to seeking her service in any of our future real estate transactions.
