March 2017

As a first time home buyer with 20% down payment, great credit history, and well earning income we were eager, naive and optimistic that everything would go smoothly in our home buying process. We found our dream home quick, too soon actually. It had almost everything that we were looking for. The negotiations were taken care of by our wonderful realtor Martha Olmos. The real trouble came from the local lenders. The request for repeated documentation pushed our closing date further. We were on the verge of losing the house twice as a result of the lender. If it wasn’t for Martha, we would not be sitting in our new house. During the stressful time with our lender, she made sure to check up on us every day, we were on close communication often speaking to her 3-4 times a day. When the sellers were ready to pull back the house, it was Martha who came to our rescue speaking to the seller’s agent. She was definitely working overtime for our sake. The personal attention and the help she gave us during those stressful times are truly heartwarming and greatly appreciated. We want to thank Martha from the bottom of our hearts for all the help and effort she had put in to ensure we would have a home. We would gladly recommend her to anyone who needs help to buy a home. Great service like hers is not easily found anywhere. 

Vinodh and Deepa R.

Martha Olmos is extraordinary! We were on a serious time crunch to find something we needed and hopefully liked. She not only helped us find the right house but she also connected us to a lender that was able to close our house in no time at all!! I cannot express how much gratitude we have for Martha. She really, really listens and made herself completely available to any questions we had. She even helped to save us money with our homeowners insurance and informed us about the tax breaks and what we needed to do to be sure we got everything correct. We never doubted her honesty and so very much appreciated her candor. Not one single experience with her was an unpleasant surprise. If we have to do this all over again, Martha will be the one we turn to once again and again and again!!!

Tom and Michelle W.

Martha was awesome and was available to answer any of my questions along the way. She gave great advice when requested and represented our interests well throughout every step of the process. I will definitely request her in the future the next time we need an agent.

George W.

Martha was incredibly helpful throughout the entire process of purchasing this house. As a first time home buyer, she gave me lots of advice and helped me through all the steps. 

Martha was on top of everything throughout the whole process. I had originally started working with a lender who was having trouble closing. She worked with the lender and the seller to keep the process moving forward, eventually helping me choose a new lender who was able to close very quickly. Throughout this long and difficult closing, I wasn't worried because I knew Martha was doing everything possible to help me close. 

I will definitely want to work with Martha again on my next purchase.

Martha was extremely helpful, available when needed, knowledgeable about homes, the local market from both buyers' and sellers' perspectives. Her advice on negotiating, home quality and our search was excellent. We would definitely recommend Martha to friends or colleagues looking for a home.

Eric and Naomi J.

Martha was very knowledgeable and professional throughout our home buying process. My spouse and I were first time home buyers and she was always available and patient with us. She came with us not only to see homes but she was also there for us through home inspection and closing. Even after closing, we heard from her several times to make sure we had what we needed!

Alex and Dana A.

Martha helped us a lot through our home buying process. She went above what I was expecting by coming to walk-throughs, the closing, even bringing her own blue tape. I felt that we had a really good representative throughout the process.

Bill and Rosa F.

Martha was such a pleasure to work with in buying our new home. She was quick to respond to our questions and always willing to track down the answers for us. We had just the best buying experience and feel it was due to our agent. I would highly recommend Martha to anyone buying or selling their house.

John and Teresa D.

We LOVE Martha! And we are so thankful to have her as our realtor. From our house hunting journey to closing on our dream home, Martha exceeded our expectations, impressing not only my wife and me, but also the lender we were working with. Not only was Martha sweet and personable, she was also very knowledgeable about the industry and provided us with suggestions that won us our dream home. We cannot thank Martha enough for all of her help. You'll be glad to have her as your agent!

Bo and Maria L.

Erik and Jennifer S.

She is absolutely awesome. She was recommended to us by a friend and saved us! She is so incredibly professional and shows a true dedication to ethics and transparency. She made the home buying experience very enjoyable and was able to establish trust very quickly. She is by far the best real estate agent we have ever worked with in our 11 years as homeowners. Thank you, Martha!

Mike and Melissa B.

Martha was AMAZING! She helped us not only during the buying process but went above and beyond even after our closing. Even now that we are moved in, I know I can still call her and she would be there to help us. I couldn't recommend her enough!!

Kevin and Leeanne A.

Martha was great to work with. She was always available and helped us move quickly on our purchase, including opening up the house several times for inspections and contractors.

Martha is awesome! Absolutely would recommend her. She was friendly, punctual, returned calls and e-mail as soon as she was able. We especially appreciated her help throughout the whole process which made it less stressful for us. This was not an easy quick sell/buy property but Martha always encouraged us to be patient and wait and everything would fall into place. And it Did! Thank you for being the best agent anyone could ever have.

Blaine and Delva Z.

Martha is very knowledgeable about the process. Her mannerism is very personable while maintaining professionalism. We appreciated how proactive she was in advancing our home search and purchase.

Jerald and Veronica C.

Martha was patient, flexible and extremely knowledgeable. Martha made the process as painless as possible for a high maintenance couple's relocation from KY. I can't thank Martha enough and would recommend her to anyone entering the home buying process.

Mark and Cara R.

My wife and I worked with Martha and her team from December 2015 through March 2016 when we decided to relocate from San Diego to Austin. As anyone could imagine, moving a family with two young children halfway across the country is no easy endeavor. From day one when we met Martha for our first home tour, we knew we were in good hands in Austin. 

We made several trips out to Austin between December and March to look at homes. Martha and her team always did all the legwork up front to ensure that our short time in Austin during these trips would be well spent. We typically spent two days on each trip touring areas and homes on a well-orchestrated schedule – morning and afternoon sessions each day. These tours, along with Martha’s insights, were invaluable. This in one area, of many, in which Martha shines. Martha is not the type of agent that is going to stand behind you, nod her head, and agree with everything you say just to make the sale. Martha has a keen eye and knows what to look for as she tours a home. On more than one occasion we found Martha pointing out areas of concern, and/or deficiencies in homes, that we would have otherwise missed. 

It was during one of these trips that we ended up finding our “dream home”. The home was priced out of our range, and to be frank, we thought we did not have a realistic chance of getting an offer accepted – especially with the contingency we needed on the sale of our home in San Diego. This is, again, another area where Martha shined. She worked with the seller and negotiated the price down to a point that we could afford. After the offer was accepted, Martha kept in constant contact with us the seller, and all parties involved to ensure that everything moved along according to schedule – an aggressive schedule that involved us closing the sale of our home in San Diego on one day, and closing our purchase in Austin the very next day. We firmly believe that without Martha, this would not have been possible.

We cannot state emphatically enough how incredibly enjoyable it was to work with Martha throughout this entire process. We would not hesitate to recommend Martha to any friends or family looking to buy or sell real estate in the Austin area. In fact, we ALREADY HAVE recommended Martha to friends of ours, who are currently working with her to find their new home in Austin.

Mike and Melissa S.

We knew when we first started looking for houses that Martha was the right fit for our family, what we didn't know is how she would work day in and day out to make sure that we found the perfect home. We had a strict deadline, we needed a home before our second daughter arrived and she was able to make it happen even in this crazy Austin market. Martha always sent us the most up to date listings and even came up with some creative ways to find homes that weren't listed on the market yet. Even after our offer was made and accepted Martha would follow up on things we as first time home buyers had not yet thought of. We highly suggest Martha to anyone looking to purchase in or around the Austin area, you really have to have a realtor as dedicated as she is to stand a chance of finding and purchasing a home. The way she fought for our family to finally be homeowners was outstanding and really set our experience apart from our cousins who are currently house hunting in another city and have a realtor not looking out for their best interest. Her knowledge and advice were the factors that got us into a house and we will be forever grateful.

Ben and Charlene T.

I have been thinking about writing this review for a while because I don't think anything I can write will express how much gratitude and respect we have for Martha! She went above and beyond being there for us in answering questions at any time and giving her expertise through every step of this process. I am positive we would not have our house without her and I cannot tell her thank you enough. We will recommend Martha to every single one of our friends/family. If you are lucky enough to work with Martha you will understand what an incredible friend and realtor you will find!

Sam and Amanda K.

Martha was available at all times of the day to answer questions and deal with my inexperience. She was kind, knowledgeable and patient. She gave me honest feedback and was respectful of my decisions even when they were different from her recommendations. In terms of a great relationship and outstanding service, I would recommend her to anyone.

Daniel and Tania T.

Martha was great. We were in sync both before and after going under contract about the urgency required given the current market conditions here in Austin. She was very responsive and knowledgeable throughout the whole process and was very helpful to get a first-time buyer through all this.

Victor P.

We received excellent services from Martha. I would recommend her to my friends anytime!

Y. Kim

Martha was very helpful with our house purchase. She was very calm and did not try to up-sell any of the houses that we saw. In fact, on one of the houses that we liked very much, she pointed out some errors that may not be visible to the naked eye but were absolute deal breakers for us. She was very thorough with the whole process and would constantly follow up with us in case we had any questions. Would gladly recommend her to my friends and acquaintances.

Srikrishna R.

Martha goes above and beyond the call of work related duties. She has a work ethic that surpasses any expectations you may have. Working with Martha was like working with a personal friend. She is there 24/7 resolving any issues that come up. We could not have gotten through this without her. She has many years of experience and knowledge that greatly help when you're faced with difficult issues. Martha was a true blessing for us.

Nora M.

I recommend Martha to all my friends and colleagues in the Austin area. Martha is efficient, thorough, timely and highly skilled in communications as well as very ethical in all aspect of business. During the five months we worked together looking at properties in the Austin area we always knew about new properties that were newly listed and we reviewed the property before going to look at them so there were limited surprises and we maximized our available time to priority properties. You will be making a big mistake if you choose not to use Martha.

Mark and Marsha L.

Martha did an excellent job with our home sale and new home purchase. She came over to our house and spent three hours helping us stage it. When it came time to buy a new home, Martha spent countless hours helping to guide us to a home we would love. I highly recommend her!
