Marty knows Houston. He is always responsive, knowledgeably response, timely, and pursues interests of his clients. Mine was a difficult situation, because my original real estate agent died tragically. Marty was on board and effective as soon as he took over without skipping a beat. I highly recommend Marty!

We had a great experience working with Marty and would recommend him without reservation. Marty is professional, patient, smart and has very strong experience and technical expertise. He is one of the best realtor's I've ever used. Marty helped my wife and I buy a home in Houston late 2014. We had recently moved to town and our relocation program (for a large energy company) matched us with Marty. Marty knows the Houston market well and he was very helpful in exploring/evaluating the different neighborhoods. We also appreciated the insights he was able to offer because of his prior background as a developer. For example, he was able to provide information on the quality of construction on the homes we saw and helped us identify defects we may have overlooked. In addition to his strong experience and technical expertise, Marty was very professional and a pleasure to work with. He was always on time, kept his commitments, and respected our time. And, Marty was incredibly patient with us during the house hunting process. For example: at one point we had a home under contract but we decided to cancel the contract after inspecting it. Some realtors may have pressured the buyer to go through with the purchase. But Marty didn't do that -- he was very patient and didn't pressure us at all. Instead, he helped us cancel the contract and then helped us find another home which we liked much more. He was also a great asset when we bought our home in a multiple bid situation. The home we liked had tremendous buyer interest and ultimately received 10+ offers. Marty has substantial experience in these situations and helped us come up with a successful bidding strategy that got us the home without overpaying. In short, we had a great experience working with Marty. Less ... More

Marty has extensive knowledge of the Houston area and is a qualified real estate agent that will not dissapoint you. Marty is very knowledgeable in the home buying and selling process - links these together to help make the process easy for anyone. I am a first time home buyer. Marty explained the home purchase process in detail and shared a number of documents with me to help make the experience easier. He was very quick to respond to my questions and always ensured my concerns were addressed. He also understands the critical items to be concerned about during the inspection to ensure time is not wasted with less important items. Thanks Marty! Alex Lopez Less ... More

In addition to providing us guidance throughout the process of purchasing our new home, Marty did so with the utmost in professionalism that I had not seen before. It took us some time to find the right house, and Marty continued to find the best matches for us based on our feedback to him. When we found it, he was with us through the buying process -- which is not as easy as one may think. With the housing market in H-Town being rather tough on buyers at the moment, it was a blessing that we worked with Marty to find our home. Less ... More

We've worked with several real estate agents over the past few decades, and Marty Melchor rises to the top. His knowledge of the real estate business and construction techniques never failed to impress. He was accessible and was quick to respond to questions with factual, well-thought-out responses. Marty's advice on houses, neighborhoods, school systems, and negotiations was rock solid, and his knowledge and professionalism shined throughout. Marty coordinated communications between the sellers, the mortgage guy, the title company, and us flawlessly. We were kept updated throughout the entire process, and we closed on time. We could not have been in better hands. When it comes time to sell our home, we will seek out Marty! Less ... More

I can't thank Mr. Melchor enough for his help with the purchase of our new home. He was on close watch of our contract as well as the details of our new home. There is alot of pressure with the purchase of a new home and Marty was awesome! He kept us from lossing our minds and did not treat us like his job but instead a good friend. Thanks Marty!

As first time home buyers we were very picky as to who would handle such an important process for us. Martin was 100% attentive and knowledgeable throughout our time working with him and we felt secure about trusting him to get our home closing complete and done. Even when we were indecisive about which home we wanted or what price budget we wanted to stay in he was always considerate and patient with us , which is an aspect realtors need to have in the nature of this business. We are extremely happy with his professionalism and definitely urge you to seek him for any Real Estate need! Less ... More

Marty was the best buyers representative I could have asked for, and helped me through every step of the searching process through to closing. When I picked a place to buy, he was very organized and knowledgeable about the entire process so I had very little to worry about as long as I followed his instruction. Perhaps the most impressive part though was my indecisiveness as a buyer never seemed to deter him - I looked for an exceptionally long time at homes often changing my price or style - and he never pushed me, always gave both sides to an evaluation of a property, and was always available.

Marty went beyond all expectations. I've bought and sold a dozen homes and have never met anyone with his quality and willingness to serve. Marty just was willing to go far beyond what I've ever experienced. He's second to none from start to end.

This is the third house we've sold and we have never seen an agent as professional, knowledgeable, efficient, courteous, and as skilled as Mr. Melchor. He explained all aspects of the process and tended to every detail required for our sale. He attended our closing and was a tremedous asset for us. Once listed through him we exceeded our expectations and had good offers within two days and closed the sale in less than 45 days. He comes highly recommend by us and continues to provide help with our lease back agreement while we wait for our new house to be finished. Less ... More

I needed a real estate agent to represent me selling my home while being overseas 8,000 miles away. So, amongst the sea of agents online I picked him and prayed for the best. The whole experience was as smooth as it could possibly get; the distance played no pivotal role in the whole process of selling, as a matter of fact as Martin reassured me, and he was right, with today's online tech distance becomes obsolete. During the whole process we had to deal with a Not-so-competent title company and that was endangering losing the buyer and not closing. Hence, Martin stepped in decisively and took charge, actually doing the Title company's job and the deal was sealed. SOLD! I would Highly recommend Martin Melchor to any potential buyer or seller. He'll be in your corner! Less ... More

Marty went well above the call of duty to get my house sold. His market analysis was spot on. Since we had already moved out of town, Marty took on additional responsibilities needed to sell the house. His extra effort and responsiveness were greatly appreciated.

Marty was great to work with. He is very thorough, explained every step in the selling process in detail, and was always very prompt to respond to phone calls or e-mails. Marty spent time researching our home and provided us with expectations on how long it would take to sell our home. His analysis was very accurate. Marty is very professional and I would do business again with him in the future.

I met Martin when our daughter and son-in-law were looking for a home. We could tell he was a very knowledgeable and experienced agent. We knew who we would call when it was time to buy our new home. Marty provided us with the most positive home buying experience possible. We looked at several homes and he always had answers for all our questions. Every step went smooth all the way to closing and now we have a great home. I would highly recommend Marty when you need a real estate agent.

Marty works with the relocation arm of my company and was assigned to us as our Realtor when we were in the middle of relocating back to Houston. His passion for serving his client and ensuring their comfort as they burrow through the troubles of find a new home was immediately apparent for us. He helped in making sure we understood every aspect of the process and was very professional through and through. I am glad we worked with him.

Martin was great! His marketing plan and sales price forecast was near perfect. He knew how to negotiate the contract to get me the best terms possible. He let me know exactly what to expect once we went under contract, through inspections, and all the way to the closing table. He was very responsive and always available to answer any of my questions. I also felt like I could trust his advise. Buying or selling, I highly recommend Martin!

My husband and I were completely new to the ?buying a house? experience and we didn?t know anybody who could help us in this process. A friend of us recommended Marty, and I could not be any more grateful and happy with the decision we made! From the very first moment when we met Marty, we noticed that he was very knowledgeable and very good listener. We were kind of picky with the house we wanted, and it took us about seven months to find the right place. During that period of time, we always felt that we had a lot of support from Marty and he never stopped searching the market for a place that would meet our needs. But, if there is a characteristic that defines Marty, it is the fact that he never put any kind of pressure on us to make a decision. We visited more than a dozen of places, and Marty was always ready to open the door for us, with a smile on his face. He made wonders to accommodate our schedules and he made us feel really comfortable at all times. If I had to buy a house again, I would definitely call Marty. Honestly, I cannot say but good things about him. All the process went very smoothly and we are finally living in our dream home! Thanks, Marty! Less ... More

In the simplest terms, you cannot find a better real estate agent than Marty. He is not only very knowledgeable about the greater Houston housing market, but his past experience as a builder adds an incredible value to the service that he offers. My home hunting experience was certainly adventurous. I initially dealt with a builder that had issues customizing the home the way I wanted, and then I entered into a contract on a different home with building certification issues. In both cases, Marty diligently and professionally mediated between the parties to work these issues out and to try making the deal possible. His building expertise was instrumental to identify all the risks associated with the process and to make informed decisions on how to proceed. Eventually none of these deals went through, and Marty got me out of all purchase commitments without paying a single dime of penalty. This is the kind of person you want to have by your side! As a happy ending, we found our dream house and we were quickly able to make the deal thanks to Marty?s negotiation skills. I could not be happier with my experience with Marty, and I definitely recommend him as your agent! Less ... More

Marty is the most diligent and hardworking broker I've worked with. He is incredibly responsive to questions and requests and thoroughly follows up on all aspects of the job. The acquisition process for this lot required negotiations with not just the seller, but several neighbors, regarding the use of a common area in the rear. Marty went beyond the usual required duties of a broker and helped to facilitate communications between myself, the seller, and three separate neighbors. Without the necessary and tactful handling of all stakeholders, the deal could have easily fallen apart. Whether you're buying or selling, I highly recommend Marty to advise you with your real estate transactions. Less ... More
