“Paige Martin is the best Houston realtor I have worked with. In recent years I worked with other realtors, as I looked for a new home either under-construction, a resale or new build. Others don't compare to Paige. She is knowledgeable about the market, listened and responded to my needs, and provided solid advice. She represented us when we chose to build and helped us get great value. And, she advised us in preparing our old hold for sale. It sold quickly, closed efficiently, at a great price.
There is little more to say other than Paige was/is Fantastic! We looked for houses for almost a year and Paige was nothing but patient...showing us house after house after house. Paige was able to get an accurate feel for our like/desires and dislikes...and this allowed us to use our time very efficiently as she did a great job screening the houses we picked from HAR.com and then finding some that we missed. Overall we could not have dreamed of a better experience.”
