Here's What My Clients Have To Say
I consider it a wonderful testament to my clients’ satisfaction that most of my business comes from referrals to their families and friends.
"In 2015 I hired Martha Brown to handle the sale of our property. This was our family home, purchased brand new in 1952 by my parents, and then lived in by my brother and his family. Right from the start she was wonderful to work with. Martha did a review of the property, and we made a list of items that needed to be addressed. She had all the resources necessary to take care of them: the electrician, painter, cleaner, and landscaper. She engaged a clean-out service to assist in sorting through many items from my parents and my brother's family. She also provided a stager who made the property look terrific. Martha did an appraisal and a market analysis to set a realistic price. An open house was held for one weekend in early May. We had 5 offers and sold above asking. Martha also calmly guided us through the preparations for closing, working easily with our attorney. I highly recommend Martha as a realtor. I will most certainly hire her again for any real estate purchase or sale."

"Martha, we were so lucky to have you as our agent for both the purchase of our new home and the sale of our old house! We really appreciated your openness and easygoing personality and had the utmost trust in you. We were thrilled that you sold our house in just one week, from our initial consultation with you to the offer acceptance! We appreciate your honesty and integrity. Thank you so much!"

"Martha helped us find a home in Lexington and then sold our home in Waltham, in a very tight and somewhat unpredictable market. She was both extremely friendly and professional as well as an excellent communicator throughout the process. Martha's local expertise seems strongest in Belmont, but she knew plenty about the surrounding towns as well and researched diligently if she wasn't 100% sure about questions we had. From carefully walking us through all of our options in terms of timing/pricing/offers, to backing off and giving us space to make our own decisions, to keeping our 3 year old son entertained as we looked at prospective homes, she was wonderful. If it hadn't been for her constant reassurance that we would be able to sell our old home quickly, we likely would not have been confident enough to buy our current home (which we love!). And thanks to her, we did sell it quickly - in three days - in December no less."

We decided to purchase our first house during one of the most competitive times in recent memory. We are so thankful that we did so with Martha Brown. Martha was a perfect guide for us; she was infinitely patient with all our first time buyer questions, taught us how to evaluate what type of house and location would work for us, and helped us understand ways to make our offer competitive. In addition to all this, Martha was a fantastic cheerleader throughout the whole process! There are many things about working with Martha that stuck out to us but one of the ones that made us think "yes, we made the right choice with our agent!" was that at every open house we went to (and there were many!) Martha was always fully engaged -- pointing out what we might have missed, following up with the seller's agent, or suggesting ways that the house would fit our lifestyle. The people with whom we worked: seller's agents, inspectors, contractors, and others always had a good word about her. It's clear she is not only incredibly knowledgeable but also well respected within her industry -- that's someone you want working for you! We landed our dream home -- a 2 family in the hyper competitive Arlington market -- earlier this year. The process from the excitement of the acceptance through the paperwork of the closing was made so efficient and less stressful by working with Martha. She was happy to explain all the steps that would be required to close and was a wealth of information and assistance with an amazing attention to detail. While we're thrilled at having a home of our own, there is definitely a part of us that misses exploring the weekend's listings with Martha!
Martha was amazing to work with. She was incredibly knowledgeable and professional. She priced the property perfectly, managed any bumps along the way and sold the house in 2 weeks at full price.
Our experience working with Martha Brown was truly exceptional. From day one when she returned my phone call from the top of a ski slope while she was on a weekend family vacation, we felt like we were Martha’s top priority. She went to great lengths to help us with the sale of our home on a busy street. It often felt like she coordinated the entire community in support of our efforts. From getting talking points from the principal of the local elementary school to providing a catered lunch for a broker’s open house to bringing in a retired firefighter to conduct a courtesy inspection of our smoke alarms, Martha leveraged the knowledge and expertise of key folks in our community to assist in the sale of our home. She worked tirelessly and creatively to get folks in to see our house as soon as it hit the market. She applied thoughtful strategies for helping us set the right listing price and in conducting negotiations while setting up the purchase and sale agreement. Before our experience working with Martha, we were somewhat skeptical of the real estate industry. After working with Martha, we know first-hand the value added by a high-quality broker. We give Martha Brown our highest recommendation. She is an outstanding marketing professional of the highest caliber.
Martha worked with us in a very tight market. She took on a house that was ready for sale but on a busy street. Despite these challenges, she did everything possible to sell the house and came up with many creative ideas to move the sale along. I also found her personable and ready at a moment's notice. One of the things that I appreciate most about Martha is her showing up at all open houses and every time the house was shown. She was clearly committed to selling the house.
