Helped me buy home
Max is a great realtor! He never pushed us to buy a house and even helped talk us out of a few houses. He spent a lot of time with us and made sure we found the right house. We also really appreciate his help dealing with such a terribly obnoxious seller. Thanks again Max!

Helped me buy and sell homes
The sale of my home and purchase of another was the smoothest I have achieved after buying/selling 7 previous homes.... by far! My home sold before we even got a sign up! Buying was complicated by changes in my personal plans, schedules, and preferences, but Max and his team handled it all with grace and good humor. He made what is usually a stressful time into a painless series of transactions giving good advice along the way as needed. If there is a Gold Crown for realtors, it should go to Max. Less ... More

Overall, Max was a pleasure to do business with and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is seeking assistance with selling their home. He goes out of his way to care for his clients questions, needs, and concerns during the entire process start to finish. I am grateful to him for everything.

Max stuck with me for over a year, during a very tumultuous process of selling my home. When asked, he always came through on showings, help with repairs, suggestions for staging, and all other aspects of getting the house sold.

Max was great to work with and very helpful throughout the process. There were a few other offers ahead of mine in the process and Max was able to work with the seller and their agent to get mine selected and now I'm the happy owner of a new condo.

If you want an easygoing and trustworthy realestate agent, Max is your man. He is great in giving his honest advices, never trying to sell you home that is not right for you. He is very accomodating to your last minute request of seeing houses.He is a great pleasure to be your home buying partner.

Before choosing Max as my listing agent, I interviewed several agents. Max was prompt to the initial interview, honest, not pushy, and seemed relaxed and willing to provide his knowledge about the current real esate market. After choosing Max as my listing agent, he was quick to have a person over at my place to help stage my home, had a professional photographer take great pictures, and had my home on the MLS expeditiously. During the offer process, Max offered his advice but always let me make the final decision without making me feel awkward. He is tech savvy and I was able to complete most of the transaction electronically. He has a full-time assistant who is prompt and willing to help when need be. The escrow process was very smooth and Max kept in close communication throughout the entire process. At the end, Max was able to take my property from initial listing to complete sale within two months! Thanks Max for helping make the sale of my home a smooth process! Less ... More

Max is an amazing agent! He helped us find and purchase the exact home we were looking for while meeting or exceeding every demand we put on him. He knows the local market and was great about only showing us properties that fit within our search criteria. Max is an excellent negotiator and he got the seller to significantly lower the purchase price of our home. We absolutely love the property Max found for us. Thanks Max!

Max Folkers and his team handled our short sale perfectly. They promptly dealt with the mortgage holders and negotiated the sale. We had already moved and they handled everything without us having to be in the area.

Max and his staff went the extra mile on the management and eventual sale of my small commercial building. Max was a lifesaver 10 times over, as I live in another state and was unfamiliar with the San Diego market. He hired able contractors to refurbish the interior prior to sale, followed up with potential buyers and lessees expressing interest in the property, and gave me valuable advice at each stage of negotiating the sale. I would work with Max again in a heartbeat and would definitely recommend him to my friends. Less ... More

Max went the extra mile to ensure that our home got visibility to all the agents in the area. He followed up with all the agents that showed our home, and kept us informed on the progress. When got a buyer, Max gently managed us through the highly stressful escrow phase. While we had a few hiccups ( like many transactions) Max worked with the buyers agent to work our solutions we could both accept.

I have bought houses in three different states and if you are buying a house in San Diego, you want Max Folkers as your realtor. He knows the ropes and he is a genuinely nice guy. He drove me from house to house to house and helped me get the best deal. He stayed level headed when I got emotional during negotiations of selling our house. You will not find a better realtor in San Diego County.

Max and Mindy were so helpful and responsive! After a bad experience with our first agent, we were referred to Max by a friend. What a relief it was to have someone on our side and ready to help us buy a house! Even when we had trouble getting our loan funded, Max was right there helping to find a solution! We will definitely be recommending him to all our friends looking to buy a home in San Diego!!!!!

I listed and sold a Home with Max that closed in August. I was an out of town seller and needed someone who could handle the sale without my being there. I got Max's name from a friend of mine who knew him. I interviewed other real estate agents in addition to Max before selecting him for the job. Max did everything he said he would do from that initial interview. Max was a pleasure to work with and very accommodating of another unusual circumstance regarding the sale. He was responsive to all of my requests, open to honest discussion about the sale and marketing of the house, and made the escrow a non event. He and his assistant Mindi were very professional and easy to work with. Max has a very relaxed demeanor and displayed none of the high pressure sales elements so common in many real estate agents. I would definitely recommend him. Less ... More

Max Folkers is a great agent -- professional, patient and smart. We looked at homes for several years, trying to find exactly what we were looking for. He was knowledgeable about the market, responsive to each request, and a solid negotiator. We finally purchased a home after a long search, and I am so glad Max made the deal.

We really enjoyed working with Max. He was very helpful and prompt with all of our questions. He didn't make us feel pressured or rush us during any of the time we worked with him. He was also always available to meet with us to view homes and would let us know when he wasn't going to be available ahead of time. Finally, he helped us find our new home and made a short sale situation more pleasant than we had heard about!

Max is a patient Buyer's Agent. He showed me more than 50 houses before I bought this one. I'm not exaggerating. We looked at five or six houses at a time over the period of a year. Back then prices were beginning to drop and we were seeing a lot of the dregs at prices that still made no sense. When we found my house, we agreed that it was priced a little high. But not much. And it was the house I wanted. The Seller had to get out; he was a little underwater and I got him out. Max knew and told me that I was paying a little bit of a premium. Max wanted me to get a better deal on this house and so advised me. At the time we had three short sale offers out, too, and the banks were ignoring us and the others with offers. This turned out to be the right deal AND it is now home. Max has been suffering with me since this sale in 2009 as we look for rental opportunities. Poor Max. Max and his staff will do a great job for you too. Less ... More

I was blown away by the knowledge and professionalism of Max Folkers and his team. They were helpful and patient as I worked through the process to find my perfect investment property. I trusted that with Max's experience and guidance, I would not be disappointed in the end result. I used to think that buying a house seemed intimidating, but with the right people by your side it is just the opposite. The experience has been wonderful and exciting and I look forward to doing it again. I will definitely use Max Folkers as my real estate agent in future and so should you! Less ... More

Agent was extremely responsive and offered valuable patience in showing me hundreds of homes in a short period of time and on my schedule. She went the extra mile to help me find exactly what I wanted and was exceptionally wonderful company during the process. I chose to stay with this agent over a Century 21 USAA referred agent under the movers advantage program which pays $1,300 at closing for using thier preferred agent under no other obligations because the Remax agent was able to offer the extra pateince and perserverence during the stressful process of buying a home which proved to be more valuable.
