Testimonials of Martina Burns RE/MAX
Thank you for your help in locating THE house for me
Thank you for your help in locating a house for me. As a busy professional woman and a graduate student, I had despaired of finding an affordable home in the metropolitan D.C. area due to my time constraints. I had several realtors in the past who gave up on me because I was asking too much time for too little house. When I came across your website, I decided to try one more time because the words \"proactive and energetic\" leapt out at me. In retrospect, those two descriptive words were just the tip of the iceberg! Your work ethic, your tenaciousness, and your passion kept me going over several months of house hunting. More importantly, when you located a condo for me, you took care of EVERYTHING. At the closing, you seemed to know more than the closing attorney when it came to my settlement obligations and even negotiated for a reduction in my settlement fee because you bring in so much business! What can I say? Superb job and the ultimate professional! Please show this to all your new clients, they need to know they are working with the best!

Highly recommended by a fellow military officer
Martina Burns was highly recommended to me by a fellow co-worker who had recently purchased a home in the northern Virginia area. After our initial meeting, she certainly earned our trust, and my wife and I felt we had made a good friend instead of having secured an agent. In the end, she found a beautiful home in a perfect neighborhood. Moreover, she tenaciously negotiated and secured for us a fantastic deal. We couldn\'t have asked for anything more. If we ever decide to sell, Martina will be our agent because I know I can count on her expertise and friendship.

Martina Burns is a true professional. She worked ceaselessly for weeks to help us find our new home. From start to finish, the entire home-buying process was handled efficiently due to her efforts. Martina loves what she does, and does it very well. I would definitely recommend Martina Burns to all of my friends, and she will be our realtor of choice when the time comes to sell our home.

Great agent to work with
Martina was a great agent to work with. We appreciated her customer service when it came to helping us buy our home. In a competitive market, it was important to us to have an agent that was prompt and available for anything, question or concern we may have had.(Even buying a house around Christmas) Her professionalism and knowledge of the area was also an added bonus. Being military, we felt we were in good hands working with Martina as she is also a military wife and understood our personal situation. She is an agent with great commitment to each client she works with and we experienced it firsthand!

We discovered Martina online
We discovered Martina online and worked with her over the course of approximately one year. Our search for our first home spanned Virginia and Maryland, townhouses and single family homes, and we struggled to decide what we really wanted. Throughout all of this, Martina was patient, prompt in her responses to all of our questions and needs, and supportive of us taking our time to get the right house. Once we chose a house, she was tough in her negotiations for us and worked hard to be sure we got a great deal on a great house. Her professionalism, work ethic, and friendly demeanor all made her very easy to work with and we would, without hesitation, recommend Martina to friends and family alike! Thanks Martina for all your hard work and support, you got us the home of our dreams!

Toughest tasks completed with the utmost German efficiency
Martina Burns gets the toughest tasks completed with the utmost German efficiency. Issues with Trusts, difficult listing agents, problematic banks are no match for Martina. With connections, speed and great optimism Martina, as my exclusive agent, fought for me from start to finish. It was a real pleasure to work with and watch Martina in-action, as she took me to settlement on what was in an incredibly difficult short-sale. I would highly recommend Martina to anyone of any purchasing situation who wants to get the most out of their agent...

I wanted to take this opportunity to let you and everyone know how thankful and appreciative, we, The Lopez family are for helping us find a gem of a property
We were referred to Martina by our realtor in Texas, as we were relocating from San Antonio to Washington DC area. My realtor in Texas, who we trusted whole heartedly, did some research and found Martina to be the best realtor for us to work with in the Northern Virginia area. We were excited, but also very nervous as we had never been to the east coast. But Martina put all of our worries and anxiety to rest. She took control of the situation, and understood our plight.
One conversation and an email later, Martina had a plan with the information given to her, and narrowed the area where we would attempt to find our new home. Martina had the significant challenge of working with a family she had never met and finding a home in less than seven days. Martina was patient and made every effort to listen to our needs and wants. She also connected with each of us on a personal level (my wife and I) and made the search for our home easier. My wife and I were shocked at the types of homes that were available in our price range (we were use to Texas prices) but working with Martina we were able to find a beautiful town home within our price range in an area that reminded us of home. During the week we were in Virginia, Martina drove us around all over Northern Virginia to find the perfect home for us.She showed us different types of homes, not just what she liked. She is very professional, knowledgeable and has the ability to communicate on behalf of her client to close the deal.
Martina also has numerous contacts associated with the buying and selling of a home that it was like one stop shopping. She referred us to a great lending and settlement group that we were very happy with during this very stressful situation. The home we found had significant interest with several contracts in less than eight days. Martina was able to negotiate with the sellers realtor to convince the buyer to select our contract over several that were available.
We were very pleased with Martina's service, she is a gem in a large pool of realtors, just like our new home was a gem in a large inventory of homes.
Jorge and Lisa Lopez, Fairfax
We are very grateful for Martinaā€™s expertise and energy!
She is very hard-working, honest, open and considerate - she is the one you want on your side in real estate. Her many years of experience in Northern Virginia and with military families is a tremendous advantage ā€“ we were very pleased with her recommendations and referrals for mortgage lender, home inspector, etc. We highly recommend Martina- she will put you first and find the perfect home for you and your family.

Martina is very knowledgable of the housing market in the area
She has invaluable information about real estate. She has many established connections with other businesses in the area that helped closing go so smoothly. We are happy with the mortgage broker and home inspector (and from what we have heard talking with others and well as inspections we've had on two of our other home, our inspector was thorough and fantastic!) she recommended. Martina knew we were on a tight schedule for house hunting and set up a detailed and organized plan for our days. She consistently follows through to make sure all parties are on task and on time. We have never had a home buying process go so easily.

Martina has given us a whole new perspective on buying homes! The open line of communication that you receive from her is unlike any other, she listens to every single detail of what you are looking for in a home and ensures that she finds the perfect fit! She always responds via email, text, or by phone in such a quick period of time. This was our first home purchase and I cannot imagine it going any smoother! Martina pays a very close attention to detail, is a phenomenal negotiator, and closer. Thank you so much for all that you have done, your hard work does not go unnoticed.ā€¯-
