Greg Martin - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

Being a first time home buyer was a daunting process.

Fortunately, Greg Martin made the home buying process seamless in such a turbulent market. Greg was very responsive and would always get an answer if one wasn’t present. There was never a bad time to go visit a home or a time he was unavailable. Greg has a high level of professionalism and once in the escrow process made it EXTREMELY simple. Overall I couldn’t be more happy with the service I received from Greg

Greg helped me purchase a property recently.

I met him at an open house. He is very straight forward to work with. He is reliable, professional, and honest. He gave me sound advise through the escrow process. I was confident in his ability to negotiate on my behalf in all aspects of the purchase. I highly recommend him as your realtor.

Greg was our realtor for our first home purchase.

We were complete novice when it came to buying a home. Greg’s experience and expertise aided in securing a condo in San Diego’s competitive market. Thank you Greg for all your help!

Greg Martin represented me twice in 2021.

I highly recommend him! He was very professional, knowledgeable and easy to work with. I had two condos in San Diego I wanted to sell and wanted to do 1031 tax deferred exchanges on both. I had originally listed one of my condos with another Realtor who was highly recommended, but it didn't sell. After 6 months of nothing, I switched over to Greg. He got my place sold and helped in completing the exchange. With one sale completed successfully, I gave Greg the second condo to sell as well. Again, Greg came through for me. This type of sale is much more complicated than the average sale. I'm so glad he had a higher level of expertise than the average Realtor. I also appreciated how easily accessible Greg was when I needed to get a hold of him. There's nothing more frustrating than having to call/text multiple times and wait days for a response. I never had that problem with Greg. I would definitely hire Greg again.

By far, Greg was the best realtor I've ever worked with!

Always answered his phone or texts, constantly provided updates, and his knowledge and negotiation skills were top notch. I've worked with several realtors in San Diego and Greg is head and shoulders above the rest! Consider yourself lucky if you get the opportunity to work with him. A true professional.

In 2019 I purchased my first home.

I reached out to Greg Martin, who I was referred to by an old coworker. When searching for a realtor I remember receiving the advice to find someone who listens to you and is genuine. From the first time I met Greg Martin, that word stuck with me. Genuine. Greg is dedicated, honest, hardworking, and above all he is genuine. When I lost hope on the only home I wanted after seeing several different places, Greg told me it was possible the other offer that beat mine might fall through, but he was also very honest that I may not get this particular home. I asked him to keep checking back to see if the original party's offer didn't pull through. For what felt to me like months, but in reality was close to a week or so, Greg relentlessly reassured me. And as luck and Greg's persistence would prove, the other party backed out and my offer was accepted! Greg kept an incredibly calm demeanor during what I felt was such a very intense time, and he never made me feel as if I was overreacting to any particular situation (even if I was). Greg's positivity and patience when dealing with my, at times, very particular family members was also noteworthy. I am in love with my home. And I am so grateful to have such a wonderful place to plant my life in. My experience with Greg was everything I could have wanted for buying my first home. I highly recommend him to anyone searching for a realtor in San Diego that genuinely cares about doing what is right for his clients. This was one of the best decisions in my life!

Katherine L

My husband and I worked happily with Greg Martin (619.

952.4145) for a number of months before finding the right house here in San Diego! He was recommended by two friends who had worked with Greg and recently purchased their first home. He was very patient with us as our preferences evolved over time, and was incredibly flexible and readily available when it came to viewing properties all over San Diego and East County - many with less than 24 hours notice. We'll be happy to work with Greg in the future when needed and recommend him to anyone buying or selling!

Elizabeth J

As a first-time home sellers, Greg Martin was extremely helpful in walking us through the process.

He was very thorough and enthusiastic. Greg communicated with us frequently and candidly throughout the sale of our home in the Rancho Bernardo, San Diego area. He offered advice, but respected our decisions in terms of strategy and pricing. He arranged for beautiful photos to be taken for the listing, and he recording a video walk-through to post on social media. There was a miscommunication regarding conveyance of our washer and dryer, and Greg offered to cover the cost difference out of his realtor fee. Would highly recommend working with Greg to buy or sell your home.

Joe M

We worked with Greg Martin to purchase our first home in Normal Heights in August, 2019.

Greg was awesome to work with! He was super responsive, patient, and went above and beyond throughout the whole process. His team at Big Block reality was also fantastic at supporting our needs as well. To top it all off, Greg helped us move in and also came and did some painting during the remodel weeks later. Keep up the good work Greg!

Jered C

My husband and I just moved into our wonderful new home, thanks to Greg's patience, hard work, and resourceful approach to finding opportunities in an incredibly tight market.

He truly listened to what we wanted, and after much searching, it's exactly what we got! In addition, he has a fantastic network of people to help get through the process (loans, inspections, etc). I'd recommend Greg to anyone with real estate needs in the San Diego area.

Katie S

Greg was great!

I hardly had to worry about anything, and he maintained constant communication with me at all times. At no point was there any unexpected issues or obstacles that he didnt handle. I'd recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.

Daniel B

Greg did a terrific job in helping us in finding our new home!

He was great in finding us many options, we looked at several different types of houses in different neighborhoods all over San Diego. He was helpful in giving details about each neighborhood and home pluses and minuses. He did a great job explaining the mountains of paperwork you have to Docusign throughout the home buying process, it can be a chore, but he explained things well for everything. He's great too with communication, very responsive to calls and texts. And lastly great during COVID-19 times, I don't think I've seen his face except in pictures, always has the mask!

Chris M

Greg hustles.

That's all there is to it. He works hard, is super responsive, and clearly knows what he's doing. Greg has great connections for staging and photography which helped with the sale of my property quickly even during a pandemic! Greg also leverages his network to great effect and even some of my neighbors became Greg fans during the sale. He's just an all around good guy! If you're a seller, he's going to work his butt off to get your property sold for top dollar... If you're a buyer, he'll do whatever it takes to find you what you're looking for. I know this because that's how we connected. Greg was searching for a property for a client and reached out to me with a cold call to see if I was interested in selling. Now that's dedication!

Nick P

Greg Martin is the best!

We first met at an open house where my wife and I quickly realized that we found our guy! His attitude and character will help ease the stress of home buying and you'll know that you're being taken care of. When we bought our first home we were actually living overseas and had to plan viewings around a short trip back to the US. Greg did all the leg work, lined up homes to see, dealt with all the headaches, and even connected me with the lender that helped me navigate buying a home with an international income. Great guy and I'd highly recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor in the greater San Diego area!

Travis J

Buying our first home seemed like an impossible journey.

Greg Martin explained everything to us, was patient, informative, and fun to work with! He made our experience enjoyable rather than stressful. It was wonderful sharing this adventure with Greg Martin 💓 We are forever thankful to him and love love love our new home!!!

Marco W

Greg Martin made it so easy to purchase my condo.

He was always incredibly responsive and let me know whenever there was something that needed to be done or signed. We looked at several places before finally finding the perfect fit. Greg Martin was always positive and even recommended the lender that I used - who was also awesome! Even after purchasing the condo, Greg had recommendations for all of the work that I wanted to do! I'll definitely use Greg Martin when it is time to sell (if ever) and when purchasing my next place.

Andy O

Greg is one of the best Realtors you could possibly work a transaction with.

I just closed a sale that went so smooth start to finish with him. He works so hard for his clients and he truly cares about the people he s working with. He shows integrity and communicates quickly and effectively. He is a great negotiator and always watches out for the client he is work with. He has hosted open houses in the past for me and has been extremely successful and is very knowledgeable. I wish every Realtor out there could practice the business the way Greg does!

Lisa Miller-Carnation

My husband and I just purchased our first home with the help of our realtor Greg Martin!

We'd met Greg years ago when we were just toying with the idea of buying and had no idea of how to start the process. Greg kept in touch with us throughout the years and provided us a wealth of information along the way so that when we were ready to buy, we were truly prepared. We bought a new construction in a planned community and Greg help us to feel and know that we were getting everything done correctly and that everyone involved was on top of things. It made the whole experience of first time home buying far less overwhelming! Because we were awaiting a new build during a pandemic, the entire process took way longer than we'd expected, but true to fashion, Greg kept up with us along the way and assured us until the very end! It was a true pleasure to work with Greg Martin and would recommend anyone ready to purchase a home, reach out to him!

John F

Going to keep this short and sweet.

As a first-time home buyer, working with Greg was extremely easy. He’s very responsive and was able to guide me through the process the entire time, no matter how many times I probably asked the same question with three switched out words. It was a pleasure to work with Greg and I hope to work with him in the future.

Matthew S

Greg greatly helped my wife and I navigate through our stressful first time home buying process.

As first time home buyers, we had numerous questions, but Greg was always available to answer them. Further, throughout each stage of the buying process Greg provided us with our options and executed paperwork in a timely manner to help us become first time home owners. Thanks Greg!

Justin B

Greg is the absolute best!

Super knowledgeable, honest, and responsive! I cannot recommend enough- a genuinely great person and a pleasure to work with!

Sam W

Working with Greg was a phenomenal experience.

I was continually impressed by his responsiveness, attention to detail and care for getting me what I wanted and needed. Greg is an excellent listener and kindly offers his experienced opinion when the going gets tough. His positive attitude and willingness to jump through all the real estate hoops was refreshing during what can be a very stressful time. I can’t recommend Greg’s services highly enough.

Seth R

Greg Martin is a true professional!

! My experience with him, as far exceeded any real estate experiences in the past. He works hard and truly hustled in our behalf! He has a great command and insight into the market and was thoughtful and inspired by the direction he provided, that allowed us to not only find a buyer in a matter of days, but brought forth multiple offers at above our asking price. He provided great communication during the entire process and ultimately the journey was stress free! Yes you heard that right LOL! I HIGHLY recommend Greg if you are in the market to buy or sell! You would be hard pressed to find someone to grind harder!! Thank you Greg, we truly appreciate all that you did!! Wishing you much prosperity!

Nancy C

We met Greg Martin at an open house and shared contacts.

A few months later we met over beers to go over details of home buying. As first time homebuyers we had lots of questions and lots of cluelessness. Greg always made himself available to help with any of our concerns or explain things further. After a few months house hunting we hit a stall so Greg went out contacting owners of homes that fit our wish list, but weren’t yet listing to sell. Through this effort of going above and beyond he found us our adorable home. We’re very grateful and have already recommended him to our friends.

Chris S

Greg Martin was so great to work with and made the home buying as easy as possible!

What made our experience with him so great was his quick communication, negotiation skills, relationship with other realtors, and our lender who was equally as awesome. Once we narrowed down our search radius, he was able to send our flyers to the entire neighborhood looking for our new home. (Finding an agent who is willing to put in the extra marketing for you is quite rare in this market) Even in the height of this crazy market he was able to use his negotiation skills to beat out an offer than was much higher than ours! We will refer all of our friends and family to Greg because he made what is normally a stressful process into a breeze. We will also be back working with him once its time for investments in San Diego County!

Nick A

Greg Martin was an amazing Realtor and we highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home in the San Diego area!

We first met Greg at an open house and really liked his multitude of workshops he offered such as first-time home buyers’ workshop. We reached out to Greg to work with him and he instantly hopped on a call with us and helped us outline our next steps. He recommended an amazing mortgage broker who helped give us a better idea of our financial situation. The very same day we contacted Greg about wanting to work with him he was able to set up a showing on an interested property. Greg was always reachable for any our questions. He was able to set up showings on any property quickly and efficiently. His knowledge of the different neighborhoods of the San Diego area really helped us narrow in on where we wanted to live. He offered a lot of moral support anytime we were unable to win a bid on a property. He was never too pushy with any of his advice but was always very willing to answer any of our questions and give us advice when we asked him. His knowledge of real estate, the San Diego market and how the home buying process works really helped us buy our dream home. We highly recommend Greg to anyone especially first time home buyers looking in the San Diego area! We definitely don’t plan on seeking out any other realtor when were ready to sell our first home and upgrade to another home!

Jackie C

Greg is an AWESOME agent!

Not only does he have the best negotiating tactics, he is also very knowledgeable and seems to always close the deal. He has built a great reputation in this community and serves his clients with the best service possible. I highly recommend Greg for all your real estate needs!

Megan H

We just closed on our first home with Greg and the experience could not have been better.

He was communicative, knowledgeable, honest and available every step of the way. My wife and I move fast and Greg was able to keep pace with us and made himself available at a moment's notice during critical times in the process. If you're looking to buy a home in San Diego I'd highly recommend Greg.

Jason S

I had the privilege and honor to be Greg Martin's client when I decided to sell my property and move out of San Diego and across the country.

Greg worked hard and I felt confident that I was making the right decision. Greg was knowledgeable, communicative, and had such an enthusiasm to see me fulfill my goal. When I went out of town, he was always on top of my sale; making sure it all happened in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Greg Martin as a realtor in San Diego. He's low pressure, easy to work with and the hardest working realtor I know!

Maria L

Greg is so level headed and patient.

We had a lot of emotions wrapped up in our purchase and he never waivers. Smart relaxed and thorough.

The Drysdale Team has had the opportunity to work with Greg Martin on many transactions over the past few years and it is truly a pleasure working with him.

He educates his clients on the San Diego real estate market and how to best make their offers stand out. As a mortgage advisor, it is personally very important to me to work with people who are advocating for their clients and see the bigger picture of what purchasing a home can do for the financial future of a person. Thank you for the opportunity to assist your clients, Greg!

Danny D

As first time homebuyers, Greg was extremely helpful walking us through the process and helping us find our new home.

We first met Greg several months prior when we were in the very early stages of home buying. After speaking with several other realtors, we decided to work with Greg based off of his high level of professionalism, personable and friendly demeanor, as well as his strong work ethic. Through the process we appreciated his patience in answering the million questions we had, plus the extensive network of recommendations (lenders, plumbers, etc.) Even when things got dicey (legal issues on the seller’s side), Greg worked us through it like a champ. We highly recommend working with Greg Martin for your real estate needs for those in the San Diego Area.

Andrea M

I threw Greg a few curveballs as a seller: Out-of-state seller, townhouse in need of some repairs prior to listing, empty unit with minimal staging, neighbors who were less than cooperative.

Greg had the skills and the contacts to control the variables and keep the process moving: contractors, stagers, inspectors, junk-haulers -- Greg provided a concierge experience that allowed me to focus on my family and career responsibilities and settling into a new community. He responded to calls or texts immediately at any time of the day (619.952.4145), which was especially appreciated as a seller in the eastern time zone. If you prioritize integrity, responsiveness, and timeliness in your realtor, you won't go wrong with Greg Martin.

James N

Greg helped me navigate a tricky real estate situation involving the sale of my old condo in Point Loma and the purchase of a new, larger one in La Jolla.

I was really skeptical at first at even attempting this, but Greg assured me he had plenty of experience with contingent sale/purchase situations and sure enough, he came through! Highly recommend Greg!

James B

Called Greg about a listing Ocean Beach and reached his voicemail.

A short while later, a return call was made. Despite no longer being on the market and being out of the area Greg extended some useful information about comps, rental rates, and the neighborhoods in San Diego County. With an offer to look at some properties, generous with his time and openness to educate, I gather that Greg isn't strictly about the deal. Thank you.

Christopher C.

I bumped into Greg during an open house.

From there onwards he was super prompt in following up and sending us listings and getting me in touch with a loan officer. He took the time out to explain the entire process and was patient to answer all my questions. Would definitely work with him in the future. Overall a pretty good and chill experience. If you're looking to buy or sell , Greg Martin is your guy !

Shray K

Took me a about a year to find a property in this crazy market, but Greg was supportive through it all.

Always positive and never pushy, has good info on the area and always hustling. Would recommend for anyone looking for a home in SD.

Eric E

Greg was a pleasure to work with.

He was knowledgeable, professional, stayed on top of the transaction and delivered which makes a smooth transaction for both the buyer and seller, which is our goal as real estate professionals. Thank you Greg.

Jan R

Greg is the best realtor of all time!

We were first time home buyers and he spent so much time with us making sure we understood each step of the home buying process. He set up showings quickly and responded to all our questions, no matter what. He has a reference for every pre and post home buying experience. We couldn’t have asked for a better realtor and will definitely work with him again if we even need another home in San Diego!

Malaina T

Greg was incredibly responsive, easy to work with, and great at spotting properties in San Diego that fit our needs.

My partner and I both appreciated how he went the extra mile to understand what we were after and get us into a house that we love. He's also super knowledgeable about the area which was really helpful to us as San Francisco/Palm Springs transplants. Plus he has a great sense of humor and a tolerance for nosey small dogs who insist on visiting properties for sale. We highly recommend him for purchasing a home in San Diego County and would happily work with him again.
