Great at Negotiating
"We worked with Marty this summer to purchase a property and sell a property. He was very knowledgeable about the market and was instrumental in getting a difficult sale closed and made the process much easier. He was also great at negotiating for us when we purchased a property and followed through on every detail. I would highly recommend Marty to anyone who wants to buy or sell a home in the Kansas City northland. Thanks Marty, you're the best!"
-Mr. and Mrs. Chastain
Exceeded Our Expectations
"Marty did an excellent job of marketing the value our home offered to buyers. We got 97% of asking price within 22 days of first listing. He exceeded our expectations in all regards. We highly recommend Marty - and follow his advice. It will lead to happy endings."
Thorough in all His Interaction
"Marty was great to work with! He helped us with the entire process. He is very knowledgeable about the area and the market and thorough in all his interaction with both sides. He is trustworthy."
Most Impressive of Any REALTOR®
"I have purchased 3 homes in past 5 years, Marty was the most impressive of any realtor i have experienced. Marty has tremendous knowledge in the area, he listened to what we were looking for in a house, and his guidance was superior in choosing our house. I would recommend Marty to anyone in the Kansas City area who is looking to purchase a home."
Went Right to Work
"We used Marty to locate a piece of rental property. After we first met to explain what we were looking for, Marty went right to work setting up search criteria and locating property that met our criteria. We spent a couple days looking at approximately 10-12 properties before settling on the one we purchased. He worked with the mortgage provider getting them the required information for a speedy closing and things went smoothly. He was very knowledgeable about the property and market. I believe we were able to get a good deal and it was a great experience from beginning to end."
"Marty is AMAZING! He know how to price, market, and sell a home better than any realtor I have ever worked with. He made the process so painless and he is so easy to work with. He is definitely the measure by which I will compare any other realty experience. Thank you again Marty!"
Could Not Have Served Us Better
"Marty helped us purchase our home when we were buying and we chose Marty to help us sell our home when the time came. In both situations Marty could not have served us better. During the purchase, he worked with us showing us homes that met our criteria, negotiated well on our behalf, and helped us find the perfect house for our family. We sold the home years later in the month of December. Although this is not the best time of year to try and list a home, ours sold quickly and at the price-point we were seeking to achieve. Even through complications introduced from the buyer's lender, Marty represented us well, pursued completion of the sale, and ensured that the sale ultimately went through with as few obstacles as possible. I cannot speak highly enough of Marty and our overall satisfaction working with him. There's a reason we've used him multiple times already. Thank you Marty!"
-Jeff and Casie Spears
"After trying to sell our house through two other realtors we approached Marty. Once we decided on Marty, we felt we were finally in capable hands. Marty was knowledgeable, professional, friendly, honest, and extremely thorough in attention to all details related to our home sale. He helped us navigate a long distance sale with patience, regular feedback, timely advice, and alleviated a great deal of stress on our side. We would strongly and positively recommend Marty to any prospective buyers or seller."
-Mr. and Mrs. Suppal
"I have known Marty for over a decade. During the times I have had an opportunity to work with him, he has displayed the highest competence and professionalism. I am an attorney and have a background in real estate law. Marty attended law school and his intimate knowledge of the law is evident in his real estate sales practice. I have referred clients to Marty to list and purchase properties. I won't hesitate to employ Marty myself if I am ever in need of a real estate agent. It is no wonder he is one of the top real estate agents in the region."
Will Not Disappoint
"I've known Marty for quite a while as he was a customer of mine at the credit union where I work and when he came in we would converse about his real estate career quite often. Recently, I decided to sell my home and relocate from the KC area and I thought of Marty right away as I knew he was the right man for the job! He is honest, knowledgeable, dedicated and on top of things! My house sold in an amazing amount of time of 24 hours. The whole process ran smoothly from start to finish! If you are looking to buy or sell in the KC area, he will not disappoint! He is the man for the job!"
"Marty is an amazing agent. He helped us find our forever home and sell our starter. He walked us through the entire process of buying and selling from discovering a price to sell, staging, repairs, marketing , inspections, everything! We were at ease during the whole process and it sold quickly. Selling our house was easy due to Marty. We hope to stay in our new home a long time. You made quite an impression with us Marty is the only agent for us. We highly recommend you to other home buyers and sellers, Thanks for everything Marty, well done!"
Vast Real Estate Knowledge
"Marty helped us sell our home and purchase another. He really cared that we got and received the deals we were looking for on both homes. He made himself available whenever we called, even evenings and weekends, even though we knew that he was very busy. I know that Marty sells many high-end homes and our homes in comparison earned him much less commission, however; we did not feel treated any less importantly. Our business was just as important to him as his other clients. I would recommend Marty to anyone for his vast real estate knowledge, professionalism, and eagerness to help. He is an overall great guy."
-Barb and Randy
Prompt, Professional, Knowledgeable, and Flexible
"Marty and his team were prompt, professional, knowledgeable and flexible. They guided me throughout the process and made purchasing a home a relaxing and hassle-free endeavor. I would recommend Marty as a realtor, neighbor and/or friend!"
"Marty was great to work with! From day one he was very accommodating. We really wanted to see the property on the day we called to inquire about it and he arranged his schedule to come out that same day to meet us. He responded to our questions immediately and was very helpful throughout the entire sale process. He is very kind and made us feel very comfortable. I would highly recommend Marty for your real estate needs!"
-Brittney & Tim Moore
"Marty assisted us in selling our home in Parkville. He is very knowledgeable about the KC northland and especially the Parkville area. Stays current on and employs cutting edge technologies to reach potential buyers. Is very personable in his dealings with clients and maintains a cadre of support personnel in the attempt to ensure both the buyers and the sellers have a smooth and hassle free transaction. In summary, Marty provided our family with the best real estate experience we've ever had!!"
First Time Homebuyer
"I could not have asked for a better experience with purchasing my first home. Marty was always available and able to quickly respond to my questions. He possesses knowledge regarding not only selling/buying real estate but also structural issues in homes that (as a first time homebuyer) I would not know to look for."
"It has been a trustworthy experience working with Marty. I appreciated many things about Marty's work ethic but the one that helped me most through this experience, was his availability to answer questions and communication from his knowledge base. I had been 33 years in one home. Downsizing was a learned term that one can only grasp with experience. Marty certainly helped make this possible leading me through every decision and step into my new "downsized" home. I am grateful that I had Marty's name recommended to me. Now, I'm very glad to pass on that recommendation to those searching for a realtor."
Negotiated Very Effectively
"Marty helped sell our house in a difficult market. There were several critical issues in the closing process that he negotiated through very effectively."
Knows the Area
"Great, no-pressure realtor who knows the area. Marty gets the job done and works for his client. Marty made sure we saw the houses we wanted in a timely manner and closed the deal on our schedule."
-David and Mary Ingram
Hardest Working Agent in Missouri
"Hardest working agent in Missouri. We had a tight timeline, specific request list and needed to close in less than 30 days. No problem. Marty was very responsive and pressure free. Marty came highly recommended to me, and I highly recommend Marty to you."
Uses Cutting Edge Techniques
"Marty was very helpful with selling our house and buying a new house. He was very patient and informative. We really enjoyed working with Marty and highly recommend him!"
-Kristy and Todd Wertheimer
Uses Cutting Edge Techniques
"Marty was an exceptional realtor to work with for many reasons. He is knowledgeable about the area and the real estate market there since he lives there. He uses cutting edge techniques to analyze the market as well as to advertise my home and the Riss Lake community. He was always very responsive when I had questions or concerns, and he is very easy to work with. The proceeds from the sale of my home were within 1% of his estimate. Great job, Marty!"
Would Recommend Him to Anyone
"Marty has been wonderful to us during our house search. He is honest, patient, and very knowledgeable. We felt very comfortable with him. He made himself available even on very short notice. Marty is not only a great Relator but he also knows and is willing to recommend many resources to help with a move, house improvements, or anything else you might need moving to a new area. We absolutely love him and would recommend him to anyone."
-Monika and Michael Titus
"Marty was very knowledgeable on the sales process, paperwork, and very accessible for any questions I had. We moved to another city before the sale was final and Marty was very instrumental in getting the house repairs resulting from the inspection completed without our presence. I do feel he went above and beyond and helping us getting the sale closed."
Always Available for Questions
"It is difficult to add any more positive comments then all the ones already here. We used Marty to both sell our old home and to help with the build of our new home. In short, Marty held my hand which for someone not knowledgeable of the real estate process was very comforting. He was always available for questions or concerns even when he shouldn't have been. He helped negotiate upgrades to our new build and find potential issues that could have led to a failed inspection down the road. I definitely will recommend him to any friend that will be in the buy/sell market in the near future."
-Dan and Stephanie
Purchased My First Investment Property
"I contacted Marty to assist me this spring in the purchase of my first real estate investment property. I was looking for a rental property north of the river and knew that Marty knows the area very well. My property search with Marty was extremely educational for me! The original business plan that I had, changed over the course of our search as Marty helped me better define the area and type of property that I wanted for my rental. I don't think I would be in as good as a position as I am today with my investment property if it wasn't for him. I purchased a rental property in July within budget, minimal repairs/upgrades were needed and it was rented within 6 days of closing to a fantastic couple with a two year lease. It is currently cash flowing and projected to have a 21% annual return on investment. Marty is extremely responsive and provided education, neighborhood insight and business acumen that I don't feel I could have received from another Northland relator. I'm planning on more investment purchases in the future and will be contacting Marty for his services on each one. If you are looking for a real estate agent that specializes in the Northland real estate market I highly recommend Marty Perrea."
Marty is Your Man
"I can't recommend Marty enough. I came into this whole process by myself not really knowing much about how to buy a house, but right from the first call Marty was able to help. Again, I was a lone, first time home buyer with no real knowledge. Marty was very kind, but yet honest when needed to be. Marty really made the entire process extremely painless and was available whenever you needed to ask a question or bounce ideas around. I know I will recommend him to anyone I know personally, so if you need help with a home, Marty is your man."
"I don't normally write reviews, but had to give Marty and his team highest compliments for his knowledge and service. Home buying/selling is a process filled with potential pitfalls at every turn. Marty was always helpful in reviewing options and guiding from experience....he got the deal done! When I need a Real Estate Professional, I Talk to Marty."
Inventory of Skilled People
"I would highly recommend Marty. He is patient, never gets ruffled and his knowledge of the housing industry made the job of finding a house much easier. He is also very supportive after buying the house as he has an inventory of skilled people that if you need help with something, he can recommend the right person to do the job. Thumbs up to Marty!"
Extremely Hard Working
"Marty is absolutely great! Very knowledgeable in the Northland; especially, in the Riss Lake and Parkville areas. I'm the type of person who likes to challenge and push limits; yet, Marty still put up with me. He gets kudos for that alone! I found him to be fun, pleasant, extremely hard working and willing to please. I must've talked to him almost every day from the time of listing until the day of closing. He coached me in every area and gave or got answers to every question. My advice, if you're looking for the best realtor to help sell your home or buy one, do your homework first before picking Marty! A pleasure to work with."
-Bruce and Debbie Ayers
Very Responsive to Our Needs
"When I first started searching for a home, I thought I could potentially manage the buying process myself. Getting an agent was one of the best choices I made, especially since it was Marty. Marty recently helped my wife and I buy a home in the Parkville area. He was knowledgeable, patient, and very responsive to our needs. He knew the process, coached us when necessary, and helped provide expert guidance the entire way through. I still feel like I can reach out to him for help and/or advice. Not only is he a great agent, he's a good honest person and enjoyable to work with. Marty is the best agent in the KC area and I'd gladly work with him again in the future. If you are considering getting an agent, speak to a few and talk to Marty. You'll be glad you did."
-Chris & Jessica Maeger
Loves What He Does
"We came from out of state to find a home in Kansas City and Marty was absolutely amazing in helping us find our dream home. He loves what he does and is an expert in the field. He made us feel so welcome and showed us all around the Northland. We couldn't wait to call this home! We highly recommend Marty to all that are looking to buy or sell. He is hardworking, honest and kind."
Integrity, Compassion, and Understanding
"Having had experience with other home sales I can say without a doubt that Marty Perrea is the best!! From the first meeting when major decisions were made until the closing of the sale he was honest, easily available during the entire process and a professional with integrity, compassion, and understanding! I followed his recommendations and trusted him completely. I had 2 offers the first week, then a 3rd and better one the second week. Then closed the 6th week! Marty Perrea is the best!!"
Always Responsive, Reliable
"Marty was always responsive, reliable, communicated effectively and accommodating. We were out of town buyers and he made the entire process very easy. I would not hesitate to recommend Marty."
Truly in My Corner
"Although I have been a home owner most of my adult life, I have never purchased a home as a single lady. Marty listened and ultimately found my perfect house. And fast. In our search he would find hidden problems I did not see. He was truly in my corner. He also surrounds himself with the best. Although he gave me a huge list for inspectors I asked who he uses. This inspector spent two hours teaching me how to take care of my house. Bottom line...I could not have found a better advocate/realtor."
"Marty's knowledge of the market was very helpful for us from the sale of our house to the purchase of our new house. He was always there to help answer any questions we had. He was great to work with."
-Greg and Haley Kendall
"Marty is a true professional. He helped us sell a home in 2013. When we returned from an international assignment, we again required his expertise. He helped us locate and buy a home, manage relocation paperwork and resolve any home inspection issues. We would highly recommend Marty. He is extremely knowledgeable, diligent and honest......a true gem in the real estate profession."
-Linda and Dave
Sold in One Day!
"We decided to sell our house in Dec '15. Called Marty on the recommendation of a friend. Marty came by, and patiently explained the selling process very completely. Then he gave me a list of things to do to the house to get ready for the sale. I reluctantly did everything on his list, cussing and cursing him the whole time. We were now ready for weeks (if not months) of leaving the house for showings. He put our house on the market on Friday, March 4th, and on following evening, (Saturday, March 5th) Marty presented us with four (4) offers, three (3) of which were above asking price. What else can I say? Sold in one (1) day!!! If you want to sell your house, you should "Talk to Marty""
- Mike and Erika
"Marty was everything you could ask for when selling my home as well as helping me to find my new home. He was very knowledgeable about the market and would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home!"
Fabulous Unique Virtual Tour Tool
"Marty helped us sell our contemporary lake-side home in less than 3 months start to finish, much less time than we were expecting. He has a fabulous unique virtual tour tool that helped produce many showings. He is honest, very responsive and a pleasure to work with."
–Marty and Billi Lee
"We were relocating to the area and knew no one to give recommendations for realtors, so we were flying blind. We chose Marty based on Zillow information and have not been disappointed. Marty was extremely responsive and set aside the whole weekend we were in town to look at homes. He helped us understand things that are specific to this market (and very different from where we used to live), and was responsive to our needs in a house. He was very easy to work with, even from a distance, and is ready to make recommendations to us for any local need we have. A great realtor and resource!"
"Marty helped us buy our new home and then sell our old home very quickly. We had an excellent experience and would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. He was honest, professional, humble, and efficient, and his knowledge of the market is incredible. We told him what we needed to accomplish, he told us what we should do to get it done, and with his help we got it done just as we wanted. He went above and beyond to make the process as smooth and efficient as possible."
–Elizabeth & Smitty Manion
"Marty is an extremely professional realtor with great expertise in the Riss Lake real estate market. His recommendations got our house sold in a week! We were living part time in Texas and Marty checked on our house periodically while we were away. His efforts enabled us to relax through the whole process from listing to closing. We would definitely recommend Marty to anyone wishing to buy or sell a home!"
"Marty is extremely knowledgeable about the individual housing communities in Kansas City. This is what you want when you are trying to find the best place to raise your family and invest in a home. His connections in the real estate market are vast and he can help make a home purchase an enjoyable experience. Marty is well organized and stays on top of all of the details using state of the art electronic communication tools so there were no last minute surprises or hassles trying to meet and sign paperwork. Overall an excellent experience!"
-Scott and Brenda Perrea
Bought a Home in Riss Lake
"We contacted Marty last fall with the intention of just looking around in anticipation of moving to the KC area in late 2013. We were intending to buy yet. He showed us the area so we could get an idea of the area and what kind of house we wanted. He said he would keep his eyes open in case something came along that he thought would meet our needs. In January he had a house to show us at Riss Lake. Everything came together and we now own a home at Riss Lake. Without Marty, this would not have happened. We couldn't be more pleased with his attention to our needs and the service he provided. He almost made us think we were his only client. We recommend Marty, there aren't any better."
- Tom Cook
Pleasure to Recommend
"It is with great pleasure to recommend Marty Perrea if you are looking to buy a home. I was moving from miles away, but Marty's expertise helped to meet my needs and also assisted to make the transition to flow flawless. I know Marty is a very busy agent and has many clients, but he strives to make those he serves to feel confident that his/her needs are being met. Coming from miles away, it was helpful that Marty directed me in what resources such as utilities are available."
- Cleta Lorenz
Seamless Home Buying Process
"We have worked with Marty Perrea on two separate occasions and both have been an outstanding experience. In selling our home, with Marty's knowledge and recommendations, our home was pending contract within 2 months. We recently closed on the purchase of our new home, and it has also been a seamless process. The thing that impresses us the most about Marty Perrea is that he makes you feel as if you are his only client, regardless of how busy he may be. We have never felt forgotten or ignored, and always feel like a top priority. Phone calls are ALWAYS returned within the day, if not immediately. He is very attentive and focused with his clients. If you need to sell or purchase a home, having an agent on your side is the ultimate goal. For us, Marty Perrea met and exceeded that goal!"
- Melissa Dugan
"Marty was so helpful and patient with all our needs during our recent move. He went above and beyond what is expected of a real estate agent. We've dealt with a lot of agents over the years and he is the best."
- Keith and Bonnie Gomes, Riss Lake, Parkville, MO
Without Marty's tenacity and experience we would not have sold our home.
"We had a very unique lake property that would only be attractive to a limited number of buyers. We did our homework and hired Marty because of his exceptional reputation, his pro-activity, and his enthusiasm about the property. Marty was innovative in his marketing approach and was extremely resourceful in locating and working with the buyer who appreciated the home's design and planned to return the property to it's original distinctiveness. Without Marty's tenacity and experience we would not have sold the property and negotiated a price that was agreeable to both the buyer and the seller. We valued Marty's honesty, integrity, and talent in showcasing our home's assets and potential. My brother and I would highly recommend Marty without reservation, he is truly not only a superior real estate agent, but has become trusted friend."
- Shari S. Weatherby Lake, MO
"We worked with Marty on selling our house plus buying our new house. Marty is very experienced realtor. He was patient with us on both selling and buying our home. It took only 2 months to sell our old house. We had a list of criteria of what we wanted with the new home and it took a while to find that home. We did! Greg and I own our own customer service business. Marty's actions as a realtor lines up with the values of the customer service we expect."
- Janae Nezerka
"Marty had stagers set up the house before we started showing and gave us great tips. He was very attentive, and also kept us realistic to what the market would offer. I also bought a house thru him, and he always made himself available to show. He never pushed a house like other agents I had seen houses with, he let me decide what I liked and offered his input when asked. I really liked his approach."
- Stacey Moran, Kansas City
"We were extremely pleased with the whole process of working with you, from the first discussion right on through the after-closing follow-up. I think the two things we most appreciated about you was your honest communication and your detailed knowledge of the Riss Lake market. We purposely sought out a Riss Lake resident/agent, and your blog was a real sign to us that you had the neighborhood knowledge that would help us sell our home quickly. You gave us an honest assessment of what it would take to sell in the current market. We felt that we always knew what was happening and you did a great job of staying in touch with the buyers' broker. Your personal style is very down-to-earth and you are very approachable, so we never hesitated to call you or send an email to ask a question."
- Rick and Mary Stare, Parkville MO
"Marty is the most aggressive, thorough and hands on realtor that I have ever worked with. Even after the closing he was there and always willing to help us. Thanks for everything Marty!"
- Todd and Dawn Widner, Lee's Summit MO
Motivated to Sell your Home Fast.
"My name is Millie, my husband Steve and I were introduced to Marty through a referral. From our first introduction it was full speed ahead with Marty. This guy does not miss a beat, he did not miss an opportunity in showing our house; early morning or late evening he was there. There is absolutely no doubt that this guy is there for you! We consider ourselves very fortunate in having Marty as our realtor. We listed with him in March, the property sold the first week of May. Should we decide to purchase or sell property again, Marty will get the call."
- Steve and Millie Pernice, Independence Missouri

- Julie Kays, Parkville MO

"Marty is the Northland's premier agent. His professionalism, networking/marketing skills and keen knowledge of the real estate climate helped sell our home.

You have approached everything with great professionalism; the negotiation yesterday and inspection today went very smoothly. Thus far, everyone you've recommended has been top-notch!
Based on your work thus far with us, we are more than happy to recommend you to our friends (and, frankly, any one else searching in Parkville). Our families are very impressed with your work, too."
- Megan Benton and Paul Flucke, Parkville MO
Riss Lake Specialist
"If you are selling a house in Riss Lake, look no further than Marty. He knows the market well and does those little things that make a big difference in selling your home. We could not have been happier. After Marty picked up our listing from a realtor I would not recommend, the focus quickly changed from showing to selling. He followed up with all leads and facilitated the sell in a very short period of time. Marty focused on highlighting the things in our house that made our listing truly stand out in the market. He was willing to take the time to know our property and developed a marketing plan to position its unique features to the targeted market. In today's competitive real-estate market, you need an advocate like Marty that you can trust to be professional, timely, and results driven. He used all of the current electronic tools to ensure our home's first impression was a lasting one."
- Curt and Betsy Blades, Urbandale IA
Seller Representative Specialist
"Why I picked Marty to sell our home. I chose Marty Perrea because I wanted someone who was ethical, honest, knew all the latest websites and was aggressive but not to aggressive.
One thing that I really appreciated about Marty was that he was honest with me about his thoughts. If there was a decoration that dated the style of our home, Marty told me about it in a way not to hurt my sense of style. Even if I at first disagreed with his suggestions, I tried to approach his recommendations with an open mind. After sleeping on it overnight, I decided he was right.
Marty managed to get our home out to the widest group of prospective buyers possible using the internet. This was a key issue for me. The home we currently live in, I found on the internet, and I believed we would probably sell our home on the internet.
Marty showed me numerous homes while we were waiting on ours to sell. He also encouraged me to check out the competition, which I did.
After checking out the competition, I felt it was important to reduce our price to be the best buy in our price category. Obviously this was the right approach as we received a full asking price offer, non-contingent, the very next day!
My recommendation is to listen to Marty. When he gives advice, if at first you don't agree, sleep on it for a night. You may see things his way the next day.
Additionally, Marty's virtual tour was the best I've ever seen and probably a key factor in the fast sale of our home!"
- Pam & Terry Bayless, Parkville Missouri
Sells Fast and For the Highest Price Possible!
"My wife and I had raised the children in our six bedroom home and found ourselves to be really unable to properly maintain it for several years. The real estate market took a huge plunge and we had missed years of good market opportunities to sell but the home had many happy memories attached to it. We asked Marty to look at the property and he gave us his honest appraisal of it's worth and what he believed to be a good strategy to sell it in the down market of 2008. We hired him to represent us in the sale on May 1 expecting that we would have several month's time, or more, trying to find a buyer willing to buy on an "as is" basis. In the first two weeks, we had an astounding number of people looking at the house and received three offers well below the asking price. But, our expectations of several months on the market was not to be the case. We had to give possession of the property on May 27 and the sale was made at within $1,500.00 of the asking price. We can't express enough gratitude for Marty's astute advice and skillful guidance through what was an emotionally difficult time for both my wife and myself. Thank you, Marty! Thank you very much!"
- Bill and Darlene Eisler, Kansas City, Missouri
Solid Advice for First-time Buyers
"We would like to thank you for walking us through buying our first home. Your knowledge of the process and time spent educating us helped make the process less stressful. You were unbelievably patient, low pressure, no BS and went above and beyond the call of duty on innumerable occasions. Furthermore, you are a lot of fun to work with. We would not have gotten our house without Marty's help. Thank you! We love our house and our experience with you was SUPER! When it is time to sell Marty you will get the call.
I am so grateful to have had the extra care, attention, humor and expertise you've offered all the way through. You're simply the best. When I tell friends about any part of this journey- they can't believe that I'm talking about a "Realtor". In fact, it felt more like we had a good friend who just happens to do real estate. You've been fantastic. Thank you!"

A Different Kind of REALTOR®
"My name is Amy Hart and I first met Marty back in April of 2007. I just happened to call on a house that he was showing. We met at that house and from the very get go, Marty took care of me. At each house we looked at, Marty made sure to check EVERYTHING. If I had a question, he would make sure I had an answer that evening or at the very latest, the next morning. He made sure that he was available to speak with me, and on the rare instances I had to leave a voice mail, he made sure to return my call. In fact, I think he had to leave more voice mails with me. Marty was not only a great agent to work with but he also genuinely cared about me and making sure I found the right house. Thanks, Marty!"

A Great Communicator.
"Marty kept us updated each step along the way with regular phone calls and emails. In our opinion, part of the reason for the sale was the combination of updates, excellent staging and the internet photos and virtual tour all of which we arranged through Marty. His ability to negotiate the best possible offer during what is perceived as a "buyer's market" also is a reason that we would highly reccomend him.
In this down market and with us 700 miles away from the house during the time we were trying to sell it, we relied on Marty to make sure our house was in its best presentation condition, and he EXCELLED!"
- Paul and Doreen Ruede, Brooklyn MI

Short Sale Specialist
"Due to unforseen financial obligations, late last year I found myself in a position where I could no longer keep up with my mortgage payments.
At the time I was really thinking that bankruptcy or foreclosure were my only options, and I was in a world of hurt.
Marty was referred by a friend, and it turned out to be a life saving referral. In just a few short months, Marty was able to counsel me through the short sale process and I was able to get out of the property with much less harm to my financial well-being than I would have ever thought possible.
I highly recommend Marty Perrea for any of your real estate concerns. He is hardworking, professional, and most of all he genuinely cares for the best interest of his clients."
- Scott Criswell, Olathe KS
"I would use Marty for house buying over and over again. When my husband and I decided to purchase a home, Marty was SO incredibly easy and fun to work with. He was up front about details, the process, what to expect, the financial pieces. Marty has a knowledge about how houses are put together and how they should be maintained that he is able to look at a house and give so many tips/facts on what to look for, and how to maintain/fix things. He spent so much time looking with us and was always upbeat and patient. The entire thing was so painless and so fun that we had no stress about this process. We love our home and Marty went above and beyond for us. If you are buying and selling, you should be using Marty. He'll stick with you throughout and beyond. Thanks so much Marty. You are incredible at what you do!"

Client Loyalty Matters!

Marty Gets it Done!
"Marty and I experienced many challenges in my search for my first home. Marty was encouraging, supportive persistant and straightforward truthful. Marty got the job done! I closed on my first home on October 29th, 2009 and I am extremely happy. I would not change one thing about my first home buying experience. I have no regrets and I've learned a lot."

Dedicated to a Higher Standard of Service
"Only a few times in my life have I met someone who truly infuses personal/ family values into their work. You are in an elite class of those people.
Today, Emily relayed how you adopted the chimney and notarizing issues with no expectation of her taking any level of responsibility, fiscal or otherwise, for the tasks. She relayed your statement that she "had been through so much already" working to make this transition to California happen.
Today at this conference on excellence in healthcare...titled, "What is RIGHT in healthcare," I listened to several stories of healthcare success...where those people providing care and compassion to those they serve were celebrated for their selfless acts of kindness in support of those they serve. You, my friend, are clearly mingling among those celebrants. I am both humbled and honored to know you.
I know I speak for Emily when I say, I have never met a more passionate, thoughtful and dedicated real estate agent and team as we have found on you.
You have my grateful thanks for all that you have done to help us sell our homes and make a new life in Glendora CA."
- Patrick Kegin, Glendora CA

A Trusted Real Estate Advisor
"Marty, I wanted to say thank you for helping me through my home-buying experience. It was obvious through the whole process that you had my best interests in mind. I felt comfortable with you right away and trusted your advice. You have such a variety of life experience, and I appreciate that you shared that knowledge with me. Buying a home is probably the biggest purchase I will ever make, and the thought doing it alone was VERY SCARY. You made the process less intimidating. Your confidence in me and the support I got from you and Penny made this (ordeal) process manageable when many things in my life were beyond my control. A simple "THANK YOU" seems so inadequate, but it is sincere and I wanted you to know how much I appreciate what you did."
- Cheryl Kantor, Kansas City MO
