Getting the job done
I had been thinking of selling my condo, but had no idea how to find a realtor. I received a letter in the mail from Jesse saying he had just sold in my building and would I be interested in selling my condo. I liked his initiative. I did interview two other realtors, but after meeting Jesse (Marty came along for the initial meeting as well) I was very impressed. I knew that this father/son team would get the job done. I worked mostly with Jesse to sell my condo and find me a new one. It happened to be a seller's market so finding me a new condo that I loved was no small task. Jesse was quick to respond whenever I wanted to see a place - and when I found one that I loved, his negotiation skills helped seal the deal. I have no hesitation recommending Jesse and Martin. They are professional and personable and they get the job done. Thank you!
"Our trust in them as rewarded"
"We chose Marty and Jesse based on their very thorough, timely and precise market evaluation, including their expectations for the sale of our house. They provided us with more information than we would have expected in advance of us accepting them as our relator. They satisfactorily answered all of our questions and provided great advice. In the end, they nailed it! Marty and Jesse lived up to their commitment to keep us continually informed and they diligently represented our interests. Our trust in them was rewarded and we are very pleased with the outcome.”

"Patience, Attentiveness and Quick Responses"
"A big thank you for walking with me down the road of searching for a home and all that was involved - up to the purchase. Your input, patience, attentiveness and quick responses down to negotiating the win were all appreciated. This was a learning curve for me in a stressful season of life so I'm grateful I was able to have Agents of Character that I could trust and be myself with, knowing I was in good hands. The humor was appreciated too as it brought a spin of fun in it all. It's been a great experience working with you both."
"One Honest Guy!!!"
"My wife and I felt very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with Marty Kleine on the purchase of our home. Just moving to Lower mainland, we relied on the recommendation of our mortgage broker. Marty was the only one she referred, who was also her own personal Realtor!
From the beginning Marty as an absolute pleasure to deal with, highly professional and easily gained our trust. Very responsive in communication, respectful of our budget and we never felt any pressure in any aspect of the process.With a fairly specific set of requirements, Marty began sending us listings, and not before long we began viewing homes in our price range that met our criteria. Marty's 25 years of experience was evident as he guided us through the market. We were consistently sent updates along the way and any questions we had regarding specific properties were responded to quickly. We were impressed how well received he was by the other realtors and that was important to us when it came time to make an offer.
Once we found the one, we were about to make what we thought was a good, strong offer. However, Marty actually suggested we offer significantly less! With some pretty impressive negotiation skills, we got the house and Marty saved us $55,000!!! .... We were speechless!
You can tell Marty had our best interests at heart. He is more interested in gaining a lifelong client than a quick easy sale. I can honestly say that Marty will be my go to Realtor for any future purchases or sales and will be the only one we recommend. Thank You Marty!"

"Knowledgeable and Skilled in Negotiations"
"We are so glad that we chose to call you again for our real estate needs. Just like the first time, you definitely surpassed all expectations. You are able to explain realistically what we can expect, especially in an unprecedented market, and provide a sound strategy that resulted in a great return for us. Your honesty and integrity is refreshing and very appreciated. It is very obvious that you are knowledgeable and skilled in negotiations and that you love your job! You're continuous efforts to ensure every aspect of the sale, including researching for the final occupancy permits and putting in the extra effort to verify the square footage of our new home, just proves how dedicated you are to your client's best interests. Your dedication to us was reinforced repeatedly with your consistent updates. Once all the craziness subsided, we really did miss talking to you every day! It's not surprising to us that you are in the top 6% of realtors. We will continue to recommend you to our friends and family, neighbours and co-workers without reservation."
Brad & Michelle Mitchell
"...a True Professional at Work"
“From beginning to end, we clearly felt that Marty was working for us! His optimism, work ethic and integrity are quickly evidenced in all communication and negotiations. Marty is up front, honest and extremely knowledgeable. This gave us confidence and peace of mind. We also knew our reputations were protected which is important to us. What impressed us most about Marty was his genuine interest in how we felt with every piece of the selling process: pricing, staging, photos, advertising and showings. Simply put, Marty took care of everything. He explained anything we were unsure of and even took personal interest in discussing which pictures were taken (by his photographer) and how they would highlight the best features in our home. He represented us extremely well through the home inspection report and final negotiations.
We also noticed Marty had the respect of other realtors and in closing the deal, this seemed as important as understanding the buyer and the market. If experience, professionalism, good value and integrity are important to you, Marty is your realtor and you will be impressed. It was our privilege to watch a true professional at work.”

Not only did he sell our home, but his commitment to be at every showing, provide quick and honest feedback as well as weekly updates, and ensuring we were always taken care of made Marty stand above the rest as a realtor who follows through with all that he says he will! These intangibles are what everyone looks for in a realtor, but rarely receives. Marty delivers.”

"He Went Beyond the Call of Duty"
"My Mom loved working with Marty. She felt safe and knew he had her best interest at heart.
"Top of His Game"
We never thought we would be so overwhelmed by a realtor! We mean a really, “terrific” “honest” “keeping our very best interests top of mind” realtor! Who is this guy? A strategist, a tactician, someone who not only knows his business, yet accepts the challenges that come with it. Mr. Kleine knows how to deal with other realtors and parties on a very professional and polite platform and always kept our best interests, and then some, in mind. A true gentleman in the top of his game…we couldn’t have asked nor anticipated any more. He took us on what we had considered to be something that may turn into a nightmare and made it a true positive adventure, one we will never forget. Marty, thank you and your wife so very much for not only our successful sale, but more importantly for treating us with the utmost of care, respect and professionalism. Like they say; “You are the one!” What a team."

‘Professionals on the move…again’
"Marty Keine is by far the best realtor that I have worked with and I have purchased and sold several homes. What impressed me with Marty is that he listened intently with a sincere interest in understanding my needs and views. Obviously he is a master negotiator because he was assertive when appropriate but also realistic. A professional in his field, he kept me abreast of updates and respectfully discussed options with me.
Not that this occurs regularly but during a soft market, he sold my house to the first prospective buyer on the first day of showing."
Catherine, Regional Director Canadian Diabeties

"Extensive Experience as Well as a Great Reputation"
"As a first time home buyer I was very new to the whole idea of purchasing a home. I wanted someone with extensive experience as well as a great reputation. I am very happy that I chose Marty Kleine. His vast knowledge of the real-estate market and genuine character were aspects that made my experience with him extremely positive. From the moment we met, I could tell that he had my best interest in mind and was willing to work hard for that. He is honest & transparent and his winning negotiating skills allowed me to get the perfect home that I was looking for.
I highly recommend Marty and I am looking forward to working with him throughout the future."
"Truly a Professional in His Field
"Marty was a pleasure to partner with on the sale of our home. He took the time to understand our needs, communicated effectively, ensured issues were resolved quickly, and positioned our sale for success.
He worked hard to market, sell and most importantly close the deal smoothly both for the buyer and seller. There are real estate agents and real estate professionals. Marty is truly a professional in his field."

"Years of Experience Made the Difference"
"Marty delivers accurate and helpful housing market advice. His years of experience made a difference when it came to negotiating our final deal. Marty is very professional and works hard to meet his clients’ requests. We appreciated Marty’s friendly assistance through the entire process of helping us find a house."
"Couldn't Be Happier"
"My wife and I used Marty's services to sell our townhouse and couldn't be happier with the process or result. The first offer we received was a "low ball" but Marty had done enough homework to know that the buyers were very serious and would likely move their offer up substantially. He also assured us that our listing price was not over the market rate and that we should be patient. After a few counter offers, my wife and I were ready to agree to the buyers' "final offer". Marty convinced us to hold firm at a higher price and let the buyers come back to us in the morning. Sure enough, the buyers agreed to our price and we got more than we were prepared to accept because of Marty's advice and negotiating skills."
"He Will Be Your Greatest Asset"
"My situation was not easy: with a deadline looming and limited resources, I needed to quickly find a suitable home in a specific area of the city, an almost impossible task to accomplish. Marty took on my case in spite of my obviously modest means and difficult circumstances. He gave me the most respectful treatment I ever received in the business, was available to help at all times, and made the whole complicated transaction easy to follow. He managed to expedite the purchase of my new home without putting any pressure on me. Marty is an expert in his field; he is knowledgeable, polite, sincere, and fair in his dealings. He will be your greatest asset in buying or selling your home."
Rose, Office Manager
"Thrives On Getting You What You Want"
“We started working with Marty when we were looking to buy our first place and, as first time homebuyers, we did not know what we were doing! Marty put our fears and stresses at ease and was honest with us when he thought that a property wasn’t right for us. He didn’t want us to just buy something; he wanted us to buy the right thing. He was patient and consistently kept us updated on new properties, and he earned our trust because he was there for us and we let his experience guide our search. That was 5 years ago and, since then, we have bought and sold with Marty 3 times. He always says that he sees this as a lifelong commitment and he truly means that; he is there for his clients; he puts their interests first and is always willing to go to bat for whatever his clients want. Even when it seems impossible, Marty makes it possible and gets you the home or the price that you want! He is an excellent negotiator and, more importantly, is loyal to his clients and thrives on getting you what you want; not just on making a deal."

"On behalf of Rose and myself let me say how very pleased we are in the way you attended to the sale of our Condo. We were very impressed with your professional attitude & the straight forward way you estimated the possible price we might receive.
We have dealt with other Real Estate Sales Agents, the FIRST thing we both realized was a feeling of TRUST and the sense that our property was in good hands. Then to learn of your knowledge of the market, and your negotiating skills.....we knew that our son Derek had directed us to the right man. Thank you for getting the price you did get. God Bless you and yours."

"I Would Never Use Another Realtor"

"He Is The Best At What He Does"
"Exceeds expectations..... That is the only way to describe our experiences with Marty Klein. From our very first meeting around our kitchen table to look at some comparables to the listing of our house and preparing the marketing material to the negotiations of an offer, Marty exceeded what my wife and I ever though would be possible. Marty brings many years of real estate experience to the table along with an incredible ability to hear and feel where his clients are at during the entire process. I can not recommend Marty Klein any more highly to everyone I know. It would be a mistake not to use his services and choose someone else. He is the best at what he does."

Just a short note to express our sincere thanks for your many hours and days you have spent working on the sale of our home.

In a very slow/tough market (for our specific home), you kept our spirits up and never lost sight of the goal to realize our best possible price. To say you are ‘tenacious’ is an understatement indeed! Other agents should take a page from your play book. Thank you for everything you have done for us. We will stay in touch, and look forward to working with you again.
