TestimonialsThere are many things I can say about the high quality of service I provide to my home seller and home buyer clients, but probably none would be as credible as testimonials from some of my recent clients themselves.
So please take a moment to read the following testimonials. I hope they indicate my experience and integrity, as well as make it clear how much I enjoy helping people with their real estate needs.

Hi Martin I would like to thank you for all the hard work you put into the preparing and selling of 36 Newstead Rd. Your knowledge, attention to detail, thorough communication led to the successful selling of mom's house. Your prompt and pleasant replies to all my phone calls was greatly appreciated. Martin, a big thank you to you and your team for the staging, cleaning and photography of the house. It showed the property at its best. I especially appreciate the final clean up. Martin, I wish you and your team much success in the future. May you all stay safe & healthy. Thank you.
We asked Martin Eckert to represent us in our house sale after interviewing him and two other agents. We chose Martin because he provided knowledgeable answers to our questions and practical solutions to our concerns. He is familiar with the area, as Martin and his family have lived here and he has helped to sell many homes in our community. During our interview we asked Martin for specific assistance with decluttering and staging our home to make it more attractive for viewing. Martin promised that he and his team would assist us in doing this. As a result of their hard work, our home showed well in photographs as well as when prospective buyers visited the property. We were impressed when Martin knew where we could access other professional and trade services. We used his recommendations and were pleased when we followed his advice. It became apparent that Martin knew the market when he assessed our home as it sold quickly. We are pleased that we chose Martin as our real estate agent and highly recommend him to others.

Dear Martin, When you rang my doorbell several years ago asking if I would be interested in selling my house, I was not yet ready to move. You were very professional and suggested that when that time comes you would appreciate my business and that you would work diligently for me. After I had a fall, it became apparent that I could no longer live in my house alone and had to be closer to my family. As a result, I now live in an out-of-town retirement home. I gradually became aware that I would have to sell my precious house, where I had spent 62 years, and raised my family. It represented years of joy and happiness. Thinking of my situation, I procrastinated making my decision as I thought about what I saw as endless complications involved in preparation, as I was now living over 100 Km from my house, and was unable to drive. What would I do with my furniture etc., etc.? Then I remembered you and your professional attitude. What started to appear very complex, you and your phenomenal team made smooth and seamless as you prepared the house and made it show ready. My entire family were delighted with the job that you did and with the understanding that you demonstrated. I was so proud when I saw the beautiful promotional video that you completed in preparation for selling. When it came time to show the house, it was on the market for only one week. You had many showings and accepted offers only at the end of that week. Several offers were presented to me. Ultimately, we got a wonderful price that was truly representative of what that house meant to me and to my family. I felt that you were so invested in our happiness with the outcome of this sale. Martin, I would wholeheartedly recommend your service to anyone looking for a Real Estate agent. In the extremely competitive market of real estate agents vying for business, you truly shine. Thank you for being the “captain” of our team during the entire process. Please feel free to share my comments with future potential clients. Sincerely, Marilyn J. Wood

When we decided to sell our house, the first real estate agent we contacted was ME Martin Eckert. We found him to be very knowledgeable, courteous, clear and transparent in his process of selling the house. We were sold on him. He was easy to contact and respectful of requests and queries during the process. Team Martin was very diligent in helping us prepare the house, doing most of the heavy work plus the staging. The house sold in seven days at over the asking price to our delight. Without reservation our experience with Martin was first class and we would highly recommend him. Clayton & Jessie, Etobicoke

I fully agree with everything all the previous testimonials have said. Martin is professional, thorough, trustworthy, hardworking and pleasant. What I would add is that he was wonderful at keeping me calm throughout the entire process from filling out the initial paperwork to winning the bidding war on my condo. I dreaded the entire process and he made it almost stress free and pleasant. I think the reason he is so good at his job is because he really listens to what you say and takes it into account in every way and he is very good at explaining the process so that you really understand what is happening every step of the way. I have already passed his name on to many people and will continue to do so in the future. If you want an honest, ethical realtor focussed on your needs, Martin is the one for you!

Dear Martin, Just wanted to send a Big Thank You. You were very helpful in my journey of selling my home of almost 20 years.

I could not have done it without your professional advice , your teams help and most of all your honesty and knowledge. You made selling my home an amazing adventure. Although there were hurdles between the multiple offers and the short closing and the purchase of my new home, you reassured me it would all be worth it. "You Were Right”, and you made selling my home an effortless journey. Although what seemed an impossible task, your personal attention helped me make the best decision a home owner can make. It takes amazing trust and through your dedication, you made me believe. Today I am loving my New Home, Best choice ever. Thank You, Thank You to your family and Team

“If you are looking for a real estate agent, look no further, Martin is your guy: Competent, professional, hard working, respectful, energetic and always available in person. Our house sold in 3 days for over-the-asking price because of a Martin's circumspect strategy. There was no undue pressure, no inconvenient open house weekends, just an honest and sound advice. Whether you are selling a condo or a castle talk to Martin first.”

“From the moment I met Martin I felt assured he understood my priorities and what I was looking for. His warmth and professionalism made what I thought would be a boring and tiresome process, something interesting and actually fun. Being a first time home buyer, I had many questions and he never failed to answer any of those. I honestly felt he had my best interests at heart at all times especially during the negotiation process and I must say, Martin is an expert at that. Thanks Martin! You made it look like a pleasant walk in the park.”

“We worked with Martin Eckert from ReMax Professionals to sell my parents home. I found Martin to be knowledgeable, courteous and most of all patient. He put together a through presentation of what we should expect from the process and helped us to understand what a realistic price would be. Martin was very responsive to our many questions and took the time to explain all of our options and what we were getting with ReMax. From the moment the contracts were signed, the ReMax team swung into action. From marketing and staging the property to showing the house and recommending a lawyer, they took care of everything. The property sold within a week of listing at close to asking price. I have no hesitation in recommending Martin and his outstanding team at ReMax.”

We had a very positive experience selling our house under Martin’s tutelage. We found him to be exceptionally knowledgeable concerning market conditions, service-orientated, and a skilled negotiator who got us top dollar for our property. It was a pleasure being part of ‘Team Martin’ and we highly recommend Martin for your realty needs.

"Martin, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you again for all your help in finding our new home. After meeting you at one of your open houses, my husband and I knew you would be a great real estate agent to work with when we started our search. After telling you the exact area in Etobicoke that we wanted to live, you immediately set out with a plan to help us. One wintery morning, we were very pleasantly surprised to see you out knocking on doors of homes in our chosen area. From this door to door search you were able to show us a few homes that had yet to be listed for sale. When we did find the home we eventually purchased, you informed us of the listing before it even hit the MLS. Martin, we believe that you were also instrumental in the subsequent sale of our home at 31 Renault Crescent in Etobicoke. We appreciate you always being in constant contact with us during the sale and guiding us through what ended up as a multiple offer situation. Thank you for your thoughtfulness and going the extra mile for us. Even once all the real estate transactions were complete, you always stayed in touch and visited us on the day of closing and at Christmas. We were completely satisfied with your services and would definitely use you again in the future. I have already recommended you to friends and neighbours, and will continue to recommend you again in the future.

"Energetic would be an appropriate description of Martin Eckert's approach to his profession. It was his appearances in the neighbourhood to draw attention to listings, whether his own, or others, that encouraged us to enlist his assistance in selling our house and acquiring a condominium. That he fulfilled these tasks with zeal integrity and with a satisfying conclusion, in a short period of time, is an acknowledgement of his skills and dedication."

“The service and attention we received from Martin Eckert was exceptional! He is highly motivated to get you what you need in a super easy way. His knowledge of the local market and very accurate aim helped us find our dream home. After patiently going through listings and explaining all the details surrounding sale of existing property and purchase on new one, he made sure we got the best offer for our previous home and more importantly, the best value purchase for the new one! Martin made enormous effort in guiding us towards per-sale home preparation which ended up having our previous home sell for the record complex price within 24hrs. Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, I would highly recommend Martin Eckert to help you in this life changing move. We could not have asked for a better Realtor to guide us through the process.

"Home ownership is one of the biggest investments for most Canadians. Selling my house was therefore a big deal for me. I wanted an agent who is knowledgeable, professional, competitive and ethical. Martin Eckert came highly recommended. He sold my house in 1 week! His excellent negotiation skills and friendly manner gave me the confidence that I was in safe hands. You will not be disappointed either!

"Thank you so much for all your work and expertise in marketing and selling our home. It was a real pleasure to deal with someone in whom we had so much confidence."

We are extremely grateful to Martin Eckert for all his help selling our house late last fall. We’re quite sure "the Martin advantage" is what made it possible to get our house ready for sale and sold in such a short space of time, that time of year. We'd met other agents before Martin and none were able to tell us whether our humble, older two-bedroom bungalow was more likely a tear-down or a property that would be lived in. We didn’t want to make pointless repairs that might be a waste of money. Martin was the only one with any confidence it would not be a tear-down. Martin reviewed all the repairs we thought we needed to make, and eliminated many of them as unnecessary for sale. For most that remained, he arranged tradesmen to do the work, at his expense. He met with us frequently during this process to discuss progress and offer advice - and to keep us moving and motivated, when necessary! He checked in often and was easily accessible. He also wasn’t afraid to get his hands dirty, literally, helping get planters together in the back yard. In the end he and his staff made our house look stunning. His recommendation on pricing was spot-on and even generated a small bidding war which saw us sell the house above asking in six days. At the time of sale we had a toddler and another due in a few months. Moving to a bigger house as soon as possible was crucial, and thanks to Martin we were able to sell our old house quickly and move on and up. He gave us and our modest property his full attention and energy and treated us with generosity, respect and honesty. He redefined what we might previously have considered an expectation of "value added" in a realtor. We haven't nearly listed all the extras Martin provides as this note is already too long. Martin is truly the gold standard and we couldn't recommend him more highly.

Dear Martin Thank you for working with us on the sale of our home on Downpatrick Cres.. Selling our house was a huge decision, and part of that decision was to use a realtor,. but who to use was the question we asked ourselves over and over after interviewing 4 other realtors. Why did we finally settle on you? - you had a huge presence in our area and were representing many home sellers. You were very personable and yet not pushy. After deciding upon yourself there were other elements that confirmed we had made the right decision. First, was the process you go through in order for a home to look it's best, your suggestions and the staging were a big bonus. The final result was amazing and it showed in the photography of our home. Second, was your knowledge of the real estate market, from the marketing of the house sale itself to your pricing strategy. You were always very confident in your approach, while still open to our suggestions. The final outcome was the selling of our home well over asking, something everyone was surprised by. You said you were a take charge kind of person and that you were. Thank you again for all your help and availability as we made the transition to our new home.
