    "Wow! So lucky we chose the Martin team to find our new home. This journey was longer than any of us expected, a combination of a hyper-competitive market and our very specific requirements. Erin and her team never gave up on us and were such professionals throughout the process. They found us the perfect home (that wasn't on the MLS) and helped us successfully navigate the entire offer-to-close process. We truly would have never found our home had it not been for the Martin Team. They also made it so easy and seamless for us to sell our home. Their team came in to take care of everything inspections, painting, and repairs and very quickly we were accepted a great offer. Would highly recommend the Martin team!"

    "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 was and ended up taking 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."

    "This past December 2017, My husband and I were forced with the reality of an emergency move to the state of Washington due to family illness. Erin and Darrick came to our rescue immediately. They sat down with us and helped us to prioritize how this move should go and that was quite a feat considering it was also Christmas time! The Martins laid all the cards out on the table and helped us to determine the costs of doing some upgrades to our home prior to putting it on the market vs. selling it for a slightly decreased amount without the hassle of remodeling. We chose not to remodel and Erin and Darrick sold our home for a tidy sum in 5 days pre-market! But their job was not over yet. They all continued to work with our real estate agent in Washington and helped to make sure that all of the “t’s” were crossed and the “I’s” were dotted and then brought us boxes and packing materials to help with this huge endeavor. Six short weeks later we moved into our new home in Washington on January 27th, 2018 all signed, sealed, and delivered. I could not possibly give a higher recommendation of service and knowledge in the daunting world of real estate than to Erin and Darrick. They were all 3 of our Christmas angels!"

    "Erin was amazing to work with and I highly recommend her! She patiently helped us find a home and very quickly helped us sell our current home. Throughout our search process, Erin was insightful and intuitive about finding a home that would make us happy. Erin offered a wealth of knowledge about the various neighborhoods and also has extensive experience in home upgrades so she was able to help us assess each property quickly and thoroughly. On the selling side, Erin's assessment of the marketplace and her estimated cost to prep our house for sale were spots on. She did a fabulous job prepping and marketing our house and we were very happy with the results. Erin is proactive and communicative and made it very clear to us throughout the buying and selling processes what we should expect. Erin is a strong negotiator and knows how to balance objectivity, assertiveness, and the emotional elements of buying and selling homes. Erin has high integrity and we trusted her completely in representing us. To top it off, Erin is fun to work with and knows when to add a little humor and playfulness during a very stressful time. If you are looking for a real estate agent, I highly recommend Erin."

    "Erin, I think you already know how much we enjoyed working with you and how appreciative Andrew and I are for all of the work you did to make our move and the sale of our house possible. I know this transaction was not easy and it was clear from the beginning you understood the emotional nature of this move for us. We trusted your ability to represent us honestly and with integrity from day one, and were so impressed by how tirelessly you lobbied on our behalf to make sure everything moved forward to close. What we didn't expect and what came to bring such immense value for us. She came into our house and understood that any disruption to the kids' schedules can create larger problems. Her design sense and ability to work around our family (and dog) were incredible. I don't know how much she shared with you, but she moved baby bottles and styled our home so impeccably while having to work around all the gear that comes with babies and small kids. I would be more than happy to post positive reviews on Yelp, or anywhere else you think might help. We can't thank you enough for all of your hard work over the past 2 months. "
