“I can hardly say enough in praise of Eileen Martin who recently sold my house in Newton Centre. I was living alone for two years in an historic Queen Anne Victorian since my wife of 57 years passed away. It was time to move to an assisted living facility. Preparing the house for sale required a drastic down-sizing from 7,500 sq ft to 900 sq ft. Fifty years of accumulated possessions had to be disposed of. To make this happen Eileen introduced me to her favorite ‘moving facilitator,’ who had an enormous amount of experience in the art of downsizing. The two of them together accomplished the ‘impossible’ task of donating, selling, and tossing nearly everything in the house. Eileen took me to visit my ‘to be’ new apartment home and she helped in the arrangements for moving and for purchasing new furnishings.
“The house went on the market in September. The turnout and interest was robust. Eileen said we must let the market speak to us, which it did. The market said our beloved turn of the century house needed extensive major repairs at just about every level. We found a developer buyer who will restore it back to its original grandeur for some happy family to enjoy.
“Eileen was remarkably knowledgeable, capable, and went beyond the call of duty at all levels. She was lots of fun to be with and a great pleasure to work with.”

“When my wife and I decided to move to Seattle, we asked Eileen to sell our Newton house. She not only guided us smoothly through the process, from the staging, to showing, to the closing, but her knowledge of the market and her recommendations led to our receiving multiple offers above asking following the first weekend Open House! Eileen’s caring and support helped us avoid the stress of selling our home while planning a move across the country. She did an outstanding job and we loved working with her.”

“The selling of my mother's home was very emotional for my entire family, but with Eileen's guidance, expertise, and compassion, she made a very difficult situation so much easier. She definitely went above and beyond our expectations. She is a true professional.”

“My husband and I had the honor of working with Eileen Martin throughout our home search and buying process. As first-time home buyers, the process can be daunting, overwhelming, exhausting and frustrating, especially in one of the most competitive real estate markets in the country. However, with Eileen's expert guidance, we were able to successfully navigate the process and close on our perfect home!
“Eileen is an absolute pleasure to work with, easy to communicate with, fun to laugh with, and we are so very grateful for all of her help and support along our home-buying journey. She goes over and above for her clients, and genuinely cares that they find a property that is a fit for them in all respects. I would recommend Eileen wholeheartedly to anyone looking for a buyer's agent in the Boston area!”

“As a first-time home buyer, I could not be happier with my experience with Eileen. I actually met with Eileen before I started looking at houses and she was able to help me think about what I wanted and needed, the pros and cons of buying versus renting, as well as what steps I would have to take to find my home. I went to an open house and found myself loving a place. I knew it wouldn't stay on the market long and called Eileen immediately. She was able to jump into action and made the whole transaction a seamless process. She was organized, professional and I felt like I had an ally working with me to make the experience easy.
“Eileen's advice and insight were spot on and she took out much of the worry. I trust her implicitly and she went above and beyond to help accommodate my schedule, as well as my concerns as someone who has never been through this experience. I would strongly recommend talking to Eileen if you are interested in purchasing a house. She is truly a pleasure to work with, a wonderful real estate agent and an overall wonderful person.”

“We appreciate all your help and expertise and your very professional demeanor that never waivered in spite of so many disappointments.
“We thank you for your advice and counseling, your keen insight and your professional instincts, and your kind consideration and thoughtful gestures to us and our son.”

“Endorsing Eileen Martin as a person and a professional is an easy and enjoyable venture. I have known her for many years and find her integrity beyond reproach, communication skills above the average, a guide to trust, smart as can be, supportive of the client, appreciative of the process. She makes a potentially stressful and challenging process as stress-free and enjoyable as possible. When it was time for my daughter to enter the real estate market, I told her one name only: Eileen.”
-- Dr. Mark., January 2013
“Eileen Martin is about the most experienced and fair-minded Realtor out there; she knows the market and knows how to read the complicated personalities and issues that can come up in the process of readying a house for sale and making the sale…and completing the sale. For all her experience, she brings fresh energy and endless patience to every encounter, leaving her clients feeling better no matter the circumstances. And she has excellent taste! Eileen is an ace professional who also seems like your best friend when you need her to be.”
