I loved working with Griselle. I met her at the open house and she was very informative and answered all of our questions. Though she was working for the developer she was very helpful to us and let us know all of our options. She walked us through the entire process from the open house to us signing our lease. She helped us to understand every clause within the lease and was always very responsive to any questions we had. She also made herself available to assist us in coming back to take measurements of our new place. My husband and I would certainly recommend her to anyone. Less ... More

Firstly it was one of Grisslle's employees named May Lane. The fact that she found me a house on the very first visit, whereas I had been hunting for a few months was a real positive. The realtor made some good insight and suggested some good and cheap remodeling techniques. The bad part about her was that she did not make me aware of the consequences and did not help me really negotiate a better rate. If you are well versed in the process then I would recommend her for the knowledge of the area, but not for handling the process itself. She did not do due diligence with regard to the paper work and had informed me that the initial contract was only cursory and that it will be torn and a new one written. That was absolutely not true of course. Also she had not given me the paperwork earlier so that I could go through it. So I ended up having to jump through multiple hoops. Anther issue I had was that she did not turn up for the closing and I was left to handle it myself(and many of the agreed to items were not done by the seller so there was a lot I had to swallow) Less ...

We hired Grisselle as our listing agent based on her stellar reviews. I must say that Grisselle has lived up to every expectation possible. Grisselle Martinez is a pro - hands down. There are a few things about Grisselle that really set her apart from other realtors. First of all, when she meets with clients she is very thorough and attentive. In the initial stages of the process, we sat down several times with her, and she took the time to answer to explain the process completely and answered all of our questions. And on top of knowing the industry inside and out, she also has that personable touch that makes working with her and going through the whole sale process a breeze. She is extremely organized, thorough, genuinely kind, compassionate, and honest person who I felt was also concerned for my family's future, well-being, and happiness. Thanks Grisselle!! Less ...

I first met Grisselle a few years back when my wife and I attempted to buy a property though her, but did not, because we shifted our attention to Florida. So when the time came for my parents to sell and relocate to Florida as well, we contacted her. She did not disappoint. From day one, she put my parents who are seniors at ease, providing a realistic ballpark figure and timeframe. She had offers coming in right away and when things did not go as expected always had a plan B. What we valued the most from her is that she always listened to and acted on my parents concerns and was always quick to respond to our calls, even while she was on vacation. She certainly gained our respect and admiration and she certainly delivered as promised. My parents still own a second property in the area and would not consider anyone else but her when the time comes to sell it as well. Less ... More

Grisselle helped me purchase a condo. She was responsive and knowledgeable of the market. She also put me in contact with some finance folks to get my loan after getting some bad advice from my own bank. I would definitely recommend her and intend to use her for my future needs.

My husband and I closed on our second property with Grisselle. She was very professional and spent a lot of time with us looking at houses. We've made offers on a few houses and was outbid, but Grisselle stood by our side until we found the house that fit our needs, budget, and location. My husband and I are looking to have her list our first property for rent. She has great local knowledge and I would highly recommend her to my family and friends!! =)

As first-time home buyers, my wife and I were very fortunate to work with Grisselle - she was able to walk us through every step of what can be at times a terrifying process. Her greatest strengths were her familiarity with the area in which we purchased our new home, the advice she was to offer during the actual negotiation for the purchase of the home (which happened with multiple offers being placed on the property), and above all, her absolute responsiveness to each and every question and request we had throughout the entire process up through closing. We would happily recommend that any of our friends or family utilize her when purchasing a home. Less ... More

Grisselle is the best thing that happened to us in Real Estate. She has gone above and beyond the call of duty to make us go from "For Sale" to "Sold". She is very professional, very understanding, very helpful. I did Real Estate for about 12 years, I thought I knew everything until we met Grisselle.

Grisselle is the best and reliable agent that I have done business with. She made sure to have open house for brokers to be able to expedite the sale of my unit. She advertised my property not only in the Web sites but also by having brochure's of my unit with beautiful pictures.

Grisselle had the difficult task of selling our unique 4 bedroom loft home. With few local comps, and no recent sales in our building, she focused on getting qualified buyers in the door to see our home. Ultimately, Grisselle's extensive marketing reach found us our perfect buyer. And although we did encounter some obstacles through the home sale process, Grisselle met every challenge with professionalism and and a confidence well earned from vast experience in the industry. Through a process that can be emotional and confusing at times, Grisselle put us at ease and offered valuable advise. I am so glad we chose Grisselle to help us sell our home and I highly recommend her and her team. Less ... More

Grisselle from the very beginning was attentive. She listened to what my wife and I were looking for. She immediately showed us homes that fit our criteria. She was knowledgable around the local area we were looking to buy a condo. Also, she responded promptly to our requests to see the listings we found online. We were able to buy our first home with her help and we really love our new home. It was a long process but she was there for us. I will highly recommend Grisselle as your realtor.

Grisselle was fantastic as my realtor. She listened to the needs of my family and worked until we found the home that was perfect for us. Once we decided upon the property that we wanted, she worked around the clock, expertly negotiating until we reached a deal that was great for us. In the past I have worked with other agents, but no one has made my deal this smooth and seamless. I loved working with Grisselle and will definitely be returning to her for all of my real estate needs.

I've been in the restaurant industry in NYC for the last decade. The best way to measure the quality of experience of a customer is simple: do they comeback? Have you created a repeat customer? . . . My husband and i are now in the market for a second home and we went RUNNING back to Grisselle Martinez. She did such an amazing job for us the first time around that we did not even consider business with another agent. Grisselle is a full-time realator, not one of the part-timers/weekend agents, so your questions are answered promptly and business moves forward efficiently. She is a top-producer and when you sit down with her, you know why: she is passionate about real estate and about pleasing her client. Grisselle is very well established in Hudson County, so she was able to connect us with a great lawyer, tell us about the school system and mayor, even let us in on neighborhood gems (thanks to her we know about the best bakery!). I feel really confident recommending Grisselle; she has been a pleasure to work with. No one know North Jersey quite like Ms. Martinez. We LOVE her. Less ... More

When the market picks up we'll definitely be listing with Grisselle again. She was always prompt in responding to any questions, very knowledgeable about the neighborhood and market and continually professional. She's a tremendously hard worker who genuinely cares about her clients. I would recommend her to anybody who's interested in listing their property in a heartbeat. Thank you Grisselle for all the time and care you took with us!

When we first met Grisselle we knew right off the bat that she was very knowledgeable. We were interested in moving to Hoboken and she was so helpful in our search. The first night we met Grisselle showed us 6 condos in about 2 hours. She was always professional and personable. She made us feel comfortable at all times and gave us some really great insight! She was sending us listings on a daily basis and always responded to our e-mails within a few hours. Without her guidance I don't think we would have been able to find our dream home. I would HIGHLY reccomend Grisselle to anyone looking to rent or buy a home. Less ... More

8/19/2011 - Grisselle was everything you want in a real estate agent: courteous, knowledgeable, responsive, and aggressive in helping you get your deal done. And she doesn't force you into making any rash decisions but rather gives you as much information as possible to help you make an informed decision. She was immediately responsive to emails within 1 business day and was even leaving us voicemails on her vacations. We spent a long 10 months with her as she guided us through buying a short sale to which we finally closed on 9 months after we signed a contract. Closing was 2 days before my wife and I got married but we did it and couldn't have done it without the help of Grisselle who made sure all the certificates and necessary inspections were completed so closing would go through smoothly. She can recommend anyone you need, a mortgage lender, a painter, locksmith, you name it. And once closing is done she followed up to make sure everything was ok with our condo and recommended a painter which was fabulous so our place would be completed after coming back from our honeymoon. We cannot thank Grisselle enough who kept us going when we were tempted to pull out of this short sale. UPDATE: 8/15/2013 - We closed with Grisselle on our 2nd property. She was very patient and helped us look for a house instead of a condo this time...this time she helped show us places for over 6 months! We love Grisselle and consider her a friend now as well after everything we went through with her over the course of these past couple years. I will continue to recommend her to prospective buyers for her patience, friendliness, and knowledge. Less ... More

Grisselle was an absolute pleasure to work with! She was always well-prepared and thoroughly knowledgeable of all units we looked at and of the entire home-buying process. After one trip out looking at condos, Grisselle had an instant sense of what my husband and I were looking for in a home. Once we found our future home, Grisselle did everything in her power to make sure the entire home-buying process was a breeze and moved along as quickly as possible. She was an immense help with negotiations - particularly for a couple of first time buyers like us! Grisselle was in constant contact, giving updates and checking in on my husband and I to make sure we up to speed on everything. We are now happily settle in to our new condo and couldn't be happier. Without a doubt, you want Grisselle on your side for any Hudson County real estate needs. Customer service, real estate knowledge and a mastery of the business - she is the full package! Less ...

I highly recommend Ms. Grisselle Martinez as your next real estate agent for both selling and buying. She is very professional and responsible. Moreover she has an excellent sense of beauty in order to make your property very attractive for buyer. This aspect is extremely critical for selling your house under the current down market conditions.

Grisselle sold our home for us in record time. It was during a difficult housing market, and through her networking with all the other realtors in Union City and Hoboken, was able to bring in multiple offers that resulted in a bidding war! Grisselle went above end beyond by hiring a professional photographer (it's amazing how a pro's ability with a wide angle lense can make a small, dark room appear large and bright), displaying the house on her website, hosting open houses, and directly marketing to agents working for potential buyers. We were so pleased with Grisselle that we are currently enganging her in purchasing another property in Union City. She knows every inch of town, seems to know all the other realtors in Hudson county, aggressively gets you in to see properties (her aggressiveness and Spanish are key), and is available day and night, weekday and weekend by email or cell phone.

As a first time home buyer, having worked with Grisselle was a great experience. From day one, she took the time to understand exactly what I was looking for. She was very patient and willing to show me as many places as needed until I found the right one. She was always available by phone/email and very responsive with any questions or concerns I had. She is extremely knowledgeable with Hudson and Bergen Counties and opened me up to areas I never would have considered. Thanks to her excellent negotiating skills, she was able to get me a great deal on the unit I purchased. She knows what she is doing and works very hard for you. Not only would I use her again, but I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Less ... More
