Thanks again to all my past and present clients who have sent letters, and have referred me to their friends, family and business associates.  That is the highest compliment you could possibly give me. 

I believe there are 3 primary requirements for someone to be an exemplary realtor:

1.  Great quantities of energy and time

2.  The ability to listen and to learn everything you can about potential buyers

3.  Showing buyers properties that will fit their requirements, (to the maximun extent possible), while staying within their budgets.

You are an exemplary realtor.  As a first-time buyer, I was very apprehensive about the entire process of acquiring a residence.  Your efforts and those of your contacts at Platinum Capital and Brighton Escrow made the experience as smooth as silk.

“Martha provided a comprehensive market analysis so that I could make an informed decision about the best price to list my house at. She then created a beautiful flyer and produced a terrific “virtual tour” viewable on the Internet. Most importantly, I received a full price offer within one week of listing the property.”

Ellis Posner, Hermosa Beach

There are several points I can reference where I appreciated our relationship towards the sale of the property in El Segundo.
1.  The initial market evaluation was professionally done.  Other agents relied on their reputations and pulled bogus low numbers out of thin air.  You did a comprehensive research of the local market, provided graphs and specific numbers backed by hard data to come up with a valuation which was about $130, 000 higher on the average then 3 other local agents I had consulted.  Your valuation was proven right when the property sold at the price you recommended. 
2.  You provided reasonable recommendations to increase the marketability of the property without going overboard with pricey remodeling.
3.  Your provided contractors and service persons when requested, rather than aggressively pushing them on me.
4.  You stood behind the work of the persons you recommended and ensured that the work was completed to my satisfaction.
5.  You presented the incoming offers in an objective manner without applyingany pressure for acceptance.
6.  At the beginning of the business relationship you correctly assessed my own competencies as a client and in the final negotiations you leveraged those with your own to achieve the best possible deal with the seller.

Best Wishes for your continued success in the real estate business.

The first day I met Martha, over a year ago, her strong interpersonal skills were evident.  She is friendly and immediately makes you feel at ease.  Her enthusiasm for her chosen career was obvious.  I met her at an open house for the town house I ended up buying.  She knew I was interested and was extremely helpful, without being overbearing or invasive.  She allowed me to determine for myself, with no pressure,whether this piece of property suited my needs.

During the escrow period, she proved to be a conscientious, dependable professional.  She guided me through the buying process, from beginning to end, including referring me to a fabulous mortgage broker, who assisted me again with my re-finance.  The entire experience was relatively stress free, of which I was surprised.  Martha's positive presence made it a comfortable situation.  Since that time we have remained in touch.  We both reside in the South Bay and have our work-related area of experise.   It is a good feeling to have people in the community that you can rely on.

I recommend Martha Alonso highly.  I will definitely contact her again when the time comes for me to sell/buy property.  She truly gives quality, personal service.

Sincerely,

Marianne Turner, M.A., Redondo Beach

Your services were thorough, done in a timely matter and you were extremely friendly with a great personality.  We really enjoyed doing business with you and looked forward to your help everyday while we were trying to buy the house.  If and when we sell our townhome- you know you'll be the first one we call to help us!

Thanks again,

First Home in Redondo Beach

This was our first home purchase and Martha helped make the whole process easier and less stressful by getting back to us right away and answering any questions we had. I always felt like we were in good hands with her as our realtor and she always looked out for our best interests as her clients. She has tremendous expertise in the South Bay and has continued to be a helpful resource for us. With Martha as your realtor you can be confident she will deliver. It's been so great working with her and we will definitely work with her again in the future!

Real Estate Knowledge, Expertise & Commitment

Martha Alonso has been our realtor for the last three years. She helped my boyfriend and I find our dream home in Redondo Beach in 2014, and just recently helped us sell our house this summer. (We are relocating to Orange County.) In 2014, we met Martha at an open house in the South Bay. We were young professionals looking to purchase our first home, and no one would take us seriously. However, the moment we met Martha we knew she would be the best realtor for us! She made us feel welcome and was there for us every step of the way. Martha has become apart of our family. She genuinely cares about her clients and their needs. We truly appreciate her real estate expertise and commitment to helping us find a home. We highly recommend Martha Alonso for all buyers and sellers. You won't be disappointed! Thank you Martha!

Knows the South Bay Inside & Out...

We used Martha for our first home buying experience and she was wonderful. We really appreciated her responsiveness and ability to handhold through every step of the process. She knows the South Bay inside and out and can provide very helpful referrals for virtually anything home related. We are sure to use her again when we decide to move to our next house.

I have been doing business with Martha Alonso for the last 8 years, and she never fails to exceed my expectations! I just sold my property in South Redondo Beach with Martha, and she held my hand through the whole process, and got my place sold! I would recommend Martha to anyone looking for an agent, you will be thrilled with her.

Redondo Beach Living...

We worked with Martha for over 6 months to find our home. She's vey knowlegable, competent, and accessible. Since we were new to the area, we were unfamiliar with the local housing market and we were very unsure where and what type of home we wanted. Martha was very patient and showed us many homes, condos, and townhouses. She helped us to narrow our search so that we could finally focus on finding a single family home in our beach community.

Best Real Estate Deals for her Clients

I have used the services of Martha Alonso to buy two homes and sell two homes and I have been delighted each time. Martha is the "energizer bunny" of the real estate industry since she is constantly on the go to get the best real estate deals for her clients. In my most recent real estate experience with Martha, we had to sell our home in Redondo Beach during the worst housing slump in history and purchase our current home in Palmdale (100+ miles northeast in the SOCAL high desert). Despite having to travel long distances and working under tight deadlines and a bad housing economy, we were able to sell our house and purchase our current home in less than a month.
