Martin Uribe's Reviews & Ratings

Tell us about your experience with Martin Uribe

    • I was referred to Martin and Laura to help me sell a home inherited from a relative in a gated over-55 community. I was not local and did not know much about the home. What a team! They staged the home, suggested inexpensive changes to make it stand out, brought in a top flight photographer and marketed in all the right places. I never learned how much they invested up front. They listed the home at a seller's price then obtained a full-price offer. They nurtured the escrow while the buyers sold a different home and obtained financing. Martin even fixed the air conditioning without charge, when it failed. Martin and Laura streamlined paperwork and used technology to get needed signatures. They were knowledgeable and accessible and inspired so much confidence so that the sale was essentially stress-free.I would give them 6 stars if I could.

    • We first met Martin and Laura at an open house. They were very professional and honest, and we were very impressed with them. When we were ready to sell our property we contacted them. They proved to be very comfortable to work with and took the time to patiently explain things. They kept us updated with the open houses and offers.Our house was empty, so they staged it with furniture and flowers to help it enhance the buyers market.Upon completion of the sale they brought us a file folder with all the papers both parties had signed.We were both very happy with their services. We really want to thank them for helping us throught this process. We highly recommend Martin and Laura.

    • Martin and Laura are a remarkable team and provide the perfect balance of professionalism with a personal touch. We first met Martin and Laura back in 2012 when we were looking to sell our townhome. We actually interviewed several realtors and Martin and Laura came out on top by far. We had a lot of concerns and requirements and they were able to address each and every one of them to our complete satisfaction. Their motto of Customer First, ensured that we were comfortable throughout the entire process. It did take a bit to sell our home (but that was due to the stringent requirements of the property), but it was sold in 6 months at our original asking price. Fast forward a year, we were ready to purchase a new home and without hesitation we called Martin and Laura. Again, we had some very demanding requirements (not near railroad or freeway, built after 1979, remodeled, no pool, and most importantly, $/sqft. Explaining to them upfront that we were not in any hurry to purchase a home and could wait until the perfect home at the perfect deal came along, they trusted us and did not require us to sign any disclosures stating that we would only use them as our agents (as most all other agents will). The looking took over 2 years, and through it all, they were nothing but patient and professional. They sent us listings as soon as (and sometimes even before) it was on the market, worked with our schedule to see the homes, addressed our concerns on lead paint, asbestos, power lines, neighborhood, schools, etcand if they did not know the answer, they gladly researched it. Martin and Laura were also extremely understanding when we pulled out of an offer simply because we just did not feel right about the house. They worked with the selling agent and escrow company so that we did not have to pay any penalties/fees. They reiterated again, that its our home, and it has to feel right, and we can just keep looking. We have recently closed on the perfect home. Martin and Laura have been nothing but amazing. The whole home buying process was daunting and very overwhelming. It was a true blessing to have Martin and Laura on our side during this process. Laura went through each and every page of the contract/agreement/requirements/disclosures with a fine-tooth comb to ensure the seller would pay for the bulk of the fees and changing language which would have been highly disadvantageous should there have been delays or other issues. She clearly explained and made sure we understood what we were signing before signing our lives away. Martin literally babysat all the vendors who came (termite, pest control, appraiser, etc.) to ensure they all did their jobs property and did not cut any corners to ensure our home was in good condition and would receive the proper repairs. He not only personally supervised one, but TWO home inspections (over 3 hours each!) to ensure every nook and cranny was inspected thoroughly. They even participated in the releasing of ladybugs and making a wish with our young daughter in the backyard to celebrate our new home and to help make the transition into a new home more exciting. Even after the close of escrow and the sale final, Martin and Laura continued to assist us in providing contractor/vendor referrals, follow up on pending jobs, answer questions, etc. The service Martin and Laura have provided more than exceeded our expectations of a realtor. We feel that the amount of time, dedication, attention, and care Martin and Laura provided us would have been the same as if they were purchasing their own home. In a day and age when customer service and basic work ethic are becoming a lost art, Martin and Laura are truly a rare find and a diamond in the rough. If you are even considering to purchase a home, wed highly, highly, highly, recommend Martin and Laura to start you off on the process. They can help you figure out whats truly important for you and your family, to narrow down the location/style/size/etc., and before you know it, youll be in your new home

    • It was a pleasure working with Laura and Martin! They have great synergy. They complement each other very well and are an amazing team. Between the two of them, there is nothing that is overlooked. They are detailed and goal oriented, and so knowledgeable of the real estate market. I had such a wonderful experience with Laura and Martin a few years ago that I chose them as my agents again. It was the right decision as they were able to get offers right away with their skillful marketing strategies. I was blown away at how quickly they sold my home. Buying or selling can be a stressful experience but they know how to work through the process so well that you can stay calm and comfortable. I have been on both sides with them and they did an exceptional job!

    • April 2019 Update:I really appreciate that Martin and Laura are agents with integrity. Through both my buying and selling experience with them I felt informed, updated, educated, and in good hands. I didn't feel the need to double or triple check things because I know they did before the documents even came to me. They always had my best interests in mind through both my purchase and sale of my home and were there to keep the things moving and handle the stresses of the process so I wouldn't have to. Unless they retire, I don't anticipate moving to another agent due to their high regard for their clients and their desire to provide amazing service. Previous review:I recently closed on my first home thanks to the help of Martin and Laura! Navigating this process can be scary and unknown and I was a bit fearful that I'd do something wrong or overlook an important piece. I had confidence that Martin and Laura were watching out for me and my best interest through the entire process. They were quick to respond when I found properties that I was interested in and helped me navigate around bad areas and deals that seemed "too good to be true". I also appreciated that as I worked through things after the sale they were still available to answer questions and provide suggestions or solutions for me. It wasn't a relationship that ended the second the sale was complete and I can't tell you how thankful I was for that

    • We have known Martin and Laura for several years now and they have handled multiple real estate transactions for us. We recently were looking to purchase a new home and once we located a property, our first call was to Martin and Laura. We trust not only their expertise in the local and regional market, but we also trust their opinion. We could have easily worked with the listing agent, but our gut told us we needed an advocate who would look out for our best interest. Without a doubt, we have found 2 of the most dedicated, knowledgeable, and ethical people in the business. They not only understand the real estate portion of the transaction, but helped guide us through the 3rd party vendors (appraisal, inspection, escrow, and mortgage). There are hundreds, if not thousands of agents who can help you with a real estate transaction, but only 2 who I would stake my name and reputation on. I am happy they are my agents and even more proud to call them "friends"!

    • This is the fifth transaction that Martin and Laura have managed for me. Since I live out of town, they not only have helped me buy, sell and unfortunately short sale a property, but also performed as quasi property Managers handling a myriad of details that were overwhelming for me. We just closed on the sale of my Tustin home yesterday. It was a difficult transaction - not because of the Uribe's, but there were at least three major obstacles that could have killed the deal. 1). My tenant tried to sabotage the sale because he did not want to move, even though his lease was being honored. 2). The bank worked at a snail's pace and 3) There was turnover in Escrow team midway through the transaction which was a pain. An added complexity was that buyers were foreign nationals, subject to more stringent underwriting guidelines for loan approval. For these reasons I would use only the Uribe's. I am willing to talk to anyone considering the Uribes' services.

    • We worked with Martin and Laura on the sale of our home in Irvine. We interviewed a few other well known agents in the area but found Martin & Laura to be very knowledgeable and easy to work with. They explained us their entire sales and marketing strategy in detail and patiently answered all our questions. Martin took care of all the minute details of making our house ready for sale. This included, but not limited to, coordinating cleaning, painting and any repairs that were needed prior to putting our house on the market. Laura was in charge of staging our home to make it more attractive to buyers. Their professional photographer did a great job showcasing the salient features of our house. As a result, within the first 4 days on the market, we received multiple offers. Martin negotiated the offers to obtain the best price and sale terms. The property sold ABOVE asking price and closed escrow in 14 days. Throughout the sale process, Martin kept us apprised of the progress and made sure timelines for contingencies are met. We're extremely satisfied with the results achieved. If you are thinking of selling your home and need an honest, hardworking and responsive agent, look no further and hire Martin and Laura. They are the best, they know the area well and will sell your home quickly.

    • Selling ones home can be a challenging process but with the help of the right realtor this process goes smoothly. We wanted a realtor who can sell our home at the best price, in a timely manner and give us the personal attention we need. Martin and Laura Uribe were the right realtors for us. We were impressed with the way they presented themselves - very knowledgeable and professional and yet very personable. Those were the qualities we were looking for in a realtor and we were not disappointed. Martin explained the current housing situation, presented their marketing plan and worked with us in establishing our selling price. Laura on the other hand took care of the soft side of selling. She did the walk through of our home, suggested ways to de-clutter and staged our home in the most appealing way. With the help of their professional photographer, they were able to highlight the beauty of our home. The brochure produced to market our home was impeccable. With their marketing plan, our home reached numerous realtors and buyers. Open houses were held until they found the right buyer for our home. We appreciated Martin and Lauras patience, availability, trust worthiness and most especially their expertise in negotiation. They made the sale of our home happen at the right time. If you are looking for the right realtor to sell your home, we highly recommend Martin and Laura Uribe. Give them a call. You will not be disappointed.

    • When my husband and I decided to sell our first home, we interviewed 3 realtors, which were all experienced and supposedly great. We decided to go with Martin and Laura, which we now feel that we had made the best decision. Besides from being experts in their field, Martin and Laura are very personable! They were always available, attentive to our needs and they made the whole process smooth. They even got us several offers! They will work hard to sell your home for the best price and either Martin or Laura will be at your open house, not like most realtors who send their assistant to do the open house. We are very happy with our results and recommend Martin and Laura to anyone looking to sell their home!

      - N. Lee, Tustin
    • Martin and Laura were the agents we used for our home purchase. Words can not express how glad we were to have picked them. Being first time home buyers can be a scary and exiting feeling. So, having an agent that you can trust and rely on is very important. Throughout the process of finding our home Martin and Laura were very patient, showing us house after house and answering all our questions. I would defiantly recommend them for your next home purchase or sale. They are very knowledgeable and will go out of their way for their clients.
