    You want Martin as your realtor. He has extensive knowledge of the San Diego Real Estate Market, knows the business, and will hustle to get things done quick. He makes you feel like you are his only client. Martin communicates well with the other realtors and escrow, and guides you through each stage of the process. He was very patient with this first-time buyer's many questions and provided honest information. He understands the timelines and plainly explains what to expect and what has to happen in order to move to the next stage. He was essential to closing the deal on my Serra Mesa single family home in a highly competitive market. Martin exceeded my expectations in every way. I definitely recommend Martin to any buyer or seller in San Diego. Thanks Martin, you're the best!

    How could I possibly put into words how amazing Martin is? He's your advisor, advocate, and all-around guide through the overwhelming process of buying or selling a home. For us, selling our home of over 25 years, from start to finish, through a complex and arduous process, he was the consummate professional. No matter what the question or challenge, he will find you an answer and solution. He handled everything for us! Organizing the staging, finding us a great, reasonable house painter...right down to bringing us smoke detectors! You see, the real difference with Martin is that he cares...and that care shines through everything he does! He loves what he does...amazingly so...and is so patient and kind. When it came to pricing and negotiation, he was brilliant. He always does his homework and understands what goes into offering your home for sale, so much more than just running the comps and throwing a dart, like so many realtors do. He understands the market as a whole and has his finger on the pulse of San Diego in it's entirety, which is why, if you follow him on Facebook, you'll see him listing homes from Chula Vista to San Marcos and all points in between. He was referred to us by my husband's co-worker that had a difficult situation come up in selling their home...Martin to the rescue...seriously. We are so grateful that our friend referred Martin to us. We truly will be friends for life! Thank you, Martin...we are so grateful for you!

    Can not think of enough good things to say about Martin, even when it may seem like his job is done he goes above and beyond to be helpful. I was not optimistic about buying and selling in this market but Martin got the job done and in a short time frame. Coldwell banker is lucky to have him as he is a huge asset, I will recommend Martin to anyone that needs an agent.

    My family and I were completely satisfied to find Martin Barros (Coldwell Banker West) to sell our house. Being in the military, I have bought and sold 7 houses but Martin would "hands down" win the award for providing the BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE amongst all the realtors that I have worked with. He was RESPECTFUL and truly RESPONSIVE to all our questions/concerns and addressed each one with equal importance. He had the house cleaned, staged furniture, painted 2 rooms, provided lawn care maintenance, performed minor interior maintenance, and marketed a professionally crafted video. He held an OPEN HOUSE the first weekend after posting to the MLS and the house was sold in 3 days! Martin is the ULTIMATE PROFESSIONAL and has a battle-tested approach on how to sale your house FAST AND FOR THE MAXIMUM VALUE! If you are looking for a realtor, don't waste your time with other realtors that provide lip service, CALL MARTIN BARROS! YOU'LL BE GLAD YOU DID!

    Martin is nothing short of a miracle worker. I went to Texas to help my brother after he had surgery. While I was there, it became clear that it was going to be a permanent need. So, I called Martin and told him my house needed to be sold and I didn't have much time. I drove back to CV and arrived on a Sunday night. Monday, Martin arrived with all the paperwork in hand, by Friday the entire house had been cleared out, packed up and I left again. Boxes piled high and many things left behind. Martin took care of everything. He rolled up his sleeves and packed, cleaned staged and sold my house in about the time it took me to get back to Texas. He helped me rent a storage facility and did a lot of the heavy lifting to move my things so that they would be secured until the movers arrive in late August. Start to finish was about 3 weeks. Martin was not only calm but he was in complete control and managed every detail leaving absolutely no stress for me! I would recommend Martin as a FULL-service realtor. He really does take care of every little detail, AND he sells your house for far more than you were expecting:) I would absolutely use Martin again and am happy to recommend him to anyone that might even be thinking about selling or buying a house.

    As an employee of a company that has had me relocate nearly every 2 years for the last 6 years, I have interacted with realtors on both the selling and purchasing sides. I mention this fact to highlight that Martin B. by far exceeded all my prior realtor relationships. Not only was Martin professional at the beginning when we first interacted, but he also continued to display a high level of professionalism throughout, even after funds of my house were in my bank after being sold in 3 days. I define professionalism as treating everyone with the same respect, regardless of age, wealth, or knowledge in the housing market. Martin was quick to respond whenever a question arose and always strived to take care of any items that he could, limiting the amount of work that I needed to do. Essentially, Martin made my life just that much more stress-free, given all the stresses that surround a relocation. Finally, Martin is deeply knowledgeable in the housing market as he will give you plenty of real-life scenarios in which he has sold houses in the past, purchased houses in the past, worked with various financing options and etc. To anyone fortunate enough to work with Martin, count your blessings as at least the selling part of your move will be taken care of!

    Martin is professional, dedicated, punctual and an expert in the real state business. He always replied to each of my questions with lots of patience and kindness. Moving permanently from Europe to US wasn't an easy step and the decision to buy a new home is another difficult move but Martin made it easy for me by explaining everything I needed to understand and by walking me through every single document during the home purchase. I never got the feeling that he was pushing me to buy a place contrariwise he gave me the feeling that I was protected and helped to not make a wrong decision.

    My husband and I had the unfortunate task of selling his mothers condo due to her declining health. Selling the property was important and finding the right realtor that can work with remote sellers was essential. Martin was referred to us by a close friend. I met Martin, then trusted him with all the details since we live on the east coast. We had multiple offers over our asking price with the first showing. Martin communicated with us every step of the way, he is professional, knowledgeable, and experienced. He always kept our best interest in mind. His dedication went past what normal realtor's typically support. He was able to weed through all the offers to find the best choice exceeding our asking price and a buyer that would understand and work with us. Martin was instrumental in the final parts of the sale, ensuring that our condo was well prepared for the new owners, even going as far to personally clean the condo. By far, the best experience in selling our property, even from the east coast. Without a doubt Martin is an excellent realtor and we would recommend him 100%. 5 stars, Bravo-Zulu!

    I would rate Martin Barros A+ as a realtor. He has excellent work ethics with excellent attitude.He keeps us updated with the local housing market that leads us to sell our property at the perfect time. He is very dedicated and puts in 100% in what he does. He responds to our calls and needs for information immediately. All these qualities made him our perfect choice to handle the sale of our condo and he also got us more money than the listing price.

    Martin was great in helping us find the perfect home. He worked quickly and skillfully during the offer/negotiation process. During closing we had some delays due to our lender. Martin helped us in staying on top of communications with the lender and kept the ball rolling. Overall, Martin made sure this was a great experience for us. Thank you again so much Martin! Would use Martin again 10/10!

    My husband & I were new to all of this (first time home buyers) So we had many questions along the way and we are so grateful for the expertise and patience Martin & Georgina provided us with. They were ALWAYS on top of it, so quick to reply and just overall awesome with communication. They were so professional & attentive. The first house we went to go see Martin handed us a bag full of sanitizer, masks, gloves, shoe covers. Every house we went to go see he always had that ready for us. They even remembered things we mentioned about our kids and gifted them the sweetest gifts on closing day, talk about attention to detail!! We truly felt Martin & Georgina had our best interests in mind at all times. Hands down the best team we could have asked for. We will be sure to recommend to everyone we know!

    Martin was an absolutely amazing realtor to work with! He had a broad network of trustworthy professional connections that were absolutley crucial to helping us get cleanup and inspection work done on the house at reasonable rates and in a timely manner. He also connected us with a lawyer who was able to answer some questions for us about complications in the sale and he introduced us to a trustworthy escrow officer who was a pleasure to work with. This network was crucial to us, because we were selling remotely. It can be difficult to find someone you trust to help manage your financial business at a distance, but after meeting with Martin in person, we felt extremely confident leaving the house in his hands. He really had our best interests at heart. He always advised us wisely and never pushed us to do anything we didn't want to do simply to close the deal. He does amazing marketing work, and he was very proactive about getting things done and keeping us updated and aware of the process. The final closing went smoothly even though we were half way across the country. I would recommend Martin in a heart beat to anyone looking to buy or sell property in the San Diego area. He's a real asset to his profession and his community!

    I met Martin about 11 years ago after placing my house on the market (he was actually the buyers agent). I was so impressed with his professionalism , attentive nature and knowledge of the process that I kept his contact information and used him for the sell of another property years later. I've never known anyone more dedicated and eager to see a client 100% satisfied from start to finish. Martin was always quick to get back to me with answers to my questions. He was timely with appointments and documents and just never stopped working until ever 'i' was dotted and 't' crossed. I knew back then that I had found the last realtor I'd ever need. If asked to describe Martin ... I'd say he's knowledgeable , friendly, dedicated and honest and simply the 'real deal'!!! I have and will continue to recommend Martin to my family and friends for their real estate questions and needs.

    Martin Barros and his team are top notch. When you hire Martin you not only get a professional and knowledgeable real estate agent but you also get his stellar team that includes a professional photographer, house cleaners, furniture stagers, landscapers and a videographer. All of them contribute to get your house sold at a higher price. Martin was able to generate multiple offers and found my wife and I a buyer in one day. He guided us flawlessly through our transaction including the process changes caused by COVID-19. During our escrow, he spared no effort to keep us informed and the process on track. As such, we were able to close earlier than anticipated. I have worked with other real estate agents in the past for my buying and selling needs, however, Martin stood head and shoulders above the rest. In a world of many choices, Martin and his team are truly the best in every way. I would highly recommend Martin and would choose him again in a heartbeat.

    If I were able to leave higher than a 5 Star raining for Martin I would have because this is what he deserves. I met Martin by chance when he was selling a house next door to mine. After walking through his open house and seeing first hand his level of professionalism and how beautifully staged the home he was showing was, I knew if I were to hire a realtor it would be him. I went home and told my husband about him and the home he had for sale and had him go take a look. We were not really considering listing our home at the time but decided to see if Martin would come and take a look at our home and see what he thought we could list it for and go from there. He came that night and took a quick tour and gave us some very exciting numbers he though he could sell our home for. He said he would return the next day with some info for us. As promised he came by the next morning with a bound book all on our property and the recent sales in our neighborhood. My husband and I decided to list our house with him that day. Within a week he helped us to get cleaners, stagers, professional photographer and a Video made of our home and got it on the market. All of this with unbelievably little work and stress to us. I could not believe it, he made it so easy. In just over a week we had multiple offers and was in a bidding war. In well less than 8 weeks we closed escrow and had our money to pay off bills and for a down payment on our new home. Oh and did I mention this was in what others call the off season selling time for homes? Well it was right at the holidays when we had always heard it was very hard to sell. We got well over our asking price, Martin made it incredibly easy and stress free for us and I will be forever grateful to him. Moving forward I plan to use Martin to help me start my investment property journey. If you are looking for a realtor you can look no further, you won't find one out there as good as Martin.

    Martin was referred to me by my stepdad, he has been using him for years. Martin came and met with me months before I was ready and explained the process to me in detail. When the time finally came for me to purchase my first home, Martin came back over and got my preferences, the info he needed from me and quickly got to work. After viewing a few of my favorite properties, we found my home and quickly closed the deal. Everything went incredibly smooth, and Martin continued to show his generosity and intelligence the whole way through. I will be recommending Martin to all of my friends and family when it comes to buying or selling their homes. I couldn't possibly be happier.

    Hands down, the services Martin provided was top notch. We were relocating and depended on Martin's knowledge of the area. We had a lot of questions and his prompt responses were valuable to us. After our first visit with Martin, he knew what type of home we were looking for. As stressfull as the home buying process is, Martin was on top of his game and made the process painless.

    This was my wife and I's first home buying experience, and we were matched with Martin through Navy Federal's Realty Plus Program. Our situation was a common one for Military families, we were on a tight timeline and stationed across the country at the time of purchase. Fortunately, my orders brought me to San Diego for two months during the winter and Martin was excellent at maximizing what little time I had to physically look at houses, to ensure we saw anything and everything we wanted to walk through -- and there were a lot! He was also very accommodating of my wife's desire to participate in home tours from Rhode Island, so she could be a part of the process, as well. We put in multiple offers on multiple homes, and Martin was great at guiding us throughout the process. Since we were in a time crunch there were times we thought about putting in offers on homes that were "okay enough" for the sake of getting something locked in before I went back East. But Martin actually advised us against properties he didn't feel were truly a good fit for our family, which speaks volumes to Martin's dedication to his clients. In the end, Martin helped us a secure a wonderful starter home and we are grateful to him for being our partner in the home buying process. Thank you, Martin!
