PEOPLE WILL TALK…
"Don did a great job for us and helped us save over $12,000 on the sale. He made it simple and easy to close the sale with his suggestions and support. Thanks again."
"I highly recommend Martin Properties to anyone wanting to sell their house. Don helped us with the entire process, answered tons of questions and most importantly, saved us a ton of money. He makes the process so easy and is awesome to work with. Our Buyer even came without a Realtor and Don helped answer all our questions and provided us with the appropriate documents to get the deal done. Thank you Don!"
"I highly recommend working with Martin Properties to sell your house if you are considering for sale by owner (FSBO). I wanted to do FSBO to save money, but I was unsure of the process. I found out about Martin Properties when I was searching for our new house and saw a property on his website. Don made the process so easy, telling us what steps we needed to do -- and what not to do -- and I could call him whenever I had a question, so we were never alone during the process. Within 7 days of Don listing our house on MLS, we had 3 offers! Don gave me advice on how to handle multiple offers, and within a couple of days we accepted the best offer, which matched our goal of what we wanted to get out of the sale. All I had to do was show the house and coordinate details with the buyer's realtor (we chose to pay a buyer's agent commission) and Don as needed. It was so worth the modest fee we payed to Martin Properties! We're even buying our new house from one of his clients!"
- Pam Hull, Nashville, August 2013
"Don presented with a very warm and professional manner. He spoke with good knowledge of the subject and answered my questions with patience. He never seemed to be in a hurry but allowed me time to understand the paperwork, which I always need in a situation. I would highly recommend him to work with clients and be helpful.
It was good and a very positive experience."
- Frances C. (Worked with Don Martin in 2012 in Nashville, TN)
"Our home buying experience was an exciting one!
Don was great!! He was always there when my husband and I needed his time or input regarding us buying a home. He never rushed us but had a great deal of patience and information to share. He was with us every step of the way, and we are very thankful and grateful that he was apart of this experience!!!!"
- Eustalyn (Bought a home with Don Martin in 2012 in Nashville, TN)
"You are number ONE! Very understanding and professional. Thanks for everything!"
Mrs. Elizabeth Harper
THANK YOU to Don Martin and Martin Properties for providing this innovative and invaluable service. Don's years of experience and expertise in real estate and simple straight-forward approach is the perfect formula for anyone considering selling by owner. Exactly what we were looking for.
Thanks Don for helping us sell our home so quickly. Listing on the MLS certainly made a difference in the number of calls we received to see the house and we received 3 offers after you listed it. We accepted the 3rd full priced contract within a month of the listing. Thanks so much for all of your help and assistance. You can be sure that we'll use you again next time.
Bobby and Gayle Williams
"Having owned a marketing and communications firm for over 13 years, I have a high appreciation for excellent customer service and measurable results. I'm pleased to share that my experience with Don Martin has hit top scores on both marks.
Don's high level of professionalism and straight shooting answers provided us with strategic insight and the foundation we needed to handle the sale of our home by ourselves. Don was more than willing to answer all of our questions and help in any way he could. I highly recommend Don Martin for your MLS listing needs should you choose to sell your home 'by owner'."

I could not have had a better experience and better results with Don Martin and Martin Properties. Don made it easy to get started with his no-nonsense listing agreement and the sample forms he gave me to assist in the process. I took all the calls and did all the showings and all the negotiations. My closing attorney took it the rest of the way with the details of the payoff and HUD-1 Buyers/Sellers settlement sheet. And to top it all off I PAID NO SELLER, OR BUYER AGENT COMMISSIONS AT ALL!!! ZIP, ZILCH, NADA, NOT A DIME!!!! That was a total SAVINGS OF MORE THAN $11,000.00!! Even in a slumping housing market (2007-2008) and less than stellar economy my FSBO listing through Don Martin did the trick. Additionally, doing my own market research, I priced my house for $10,000 more than the agents I visited with had told me they would price it at--and I got it!!! Statistically, 83 percent of buyers find their house on the internet. Now that I've done this myself, I really do wonder what a conventional agent does for the outrageous commissions they are asking. The Martin Properties way works!
"As a former Realtor I heartily recommend Don's service. Don made it possible for our home to be posted in the MLS for a minimal amount of money. As a result our home sold in less than a month and we saved $$$!!! He was great to work with, always ready to help in any way possible. We would not hesitate a minute to call him again."
Ray & Jan Rains
"From the moment that I met Don I knew that this program would work for me. We had spent a couple of weeks preparing our house to sell. Touching up paint, removing all of the clutter, just making it a showplace for potential buyers. Taking the time to prepare you home for selling and not for living will make your home more desirable for potential buyers, so make sure you take the time to do those things.
I tried the old fashioned FSBO and had a couple of Open Houses, but had no offers or even any serious prospects. After a couple of weeks of this I decided to call Don and get my house listed on the MLS, Realtracs, and realtor.com, and within 2 weeks I had a solid contract from a qualified buyer, making it possible for us to buy the house that we had been hoping to buy.
If you are thinking at all about selling your home please give Don a call. It is a phone call that will save you thousands!!!!!
Thanks for everything Don!!!"
Yes, it sold in a week w/2 contracts!! Should have listed it for more $$$ ;-)
Lynne, Franklin (December 2007)
"Thanks for your service. It was a very fast process. Two weeks on the MLS and I had a contract with a full price offer. Two weeks after signing the contract I closed saving thousands in realtor commission fees. I will definitely use your service the next time I sell."
"He makes us feel like we're his only customers. I mean, I know we're not, but we feel that way... Thanks!"
We contacted Don after business hours on a Monday night. He met with us Tuesday morning to complete the paperwork for listing our house. It was on line Tuesday night and by that Thursday we had a full price offer. Don was available for questions regarding the sales contract for our home and provided thoughtful and insightful advice. We came to an agreement with the sellers by Friday and had a binding contract before our first open house. SOLD IN 48 HOURS AT FULL ASKING PRICE!!! We couldn’t be more pleased.

"I remember your kindness and help to us in our transition. Thank you."

New in the business of real estate investing, we turned to Don to help us list our first rehab house. Don not only listed our property, he showed the house for us while we were out of town, and gave us very valuable guidance when we got an offer. Don was instrumental in us being able to sell our house for full asking price. Thanks Don.

"Our neighbors just recently listed their house through you as a FSBO and it sold for the asking price in 5 days after being on the market without you for 3 months. My wife and I are getting ready to put our townhouse on the market around the beginning of September.
Thank you in advance for your assistance."
"We had two homes to sell and wanted to save the extra % of the sale price and needed to get the MLS exposure. Don was recommended and within a few days he met with us and outlined the process. We were impressed and immediately made the decision to go with him. As soon as we got the sign in the yard and the posting on MLS we had calls to show the house. The first house sold in five days and the second home sold in two. Don used the MLS and his web site to give us the exposure we needed, which included pictures of the house. He also went above and beyond to help answer contract questions. It was important for us to have a local contact and someone we could rely on. Martin Properties was exactly what we were looking for and the experience exceeded our expectations."

"I used to sell real estate in California, and I saw your ad in the Christian Classifieds. I just want to ask you one question. Is this legal?"
-Anonymous lady telephone caller, Mar 3, 2007
Thank you very much for your assistance. Your price for your service was well worth it. I paid only one percent to the realtor plus my cost for your service which allowed me to save about $6,000 in commissions over having gone the typical route of listing with a realtor. That is a GRANDIOUS savings in my book. It also made it so much easier with the MLS lock on the door. It saved me even more time not having to run to the condo all the time for a showing.
Thanks again and you are already being referred by me to others.
"Martin Properties allowed me to obtain an MLS listing at a small fee in order to reach more potential buyers for my "For Sale by Owner" home in the West End area. Don was always available by phone or email to answer any questions and help as much or as little as desired during the process.
I would recommend Martin Properties to list your FSBO home on the MLS to anyone who wants to save thousands of dollars on realtor commissions - it is well worth the small amount of extra effort required on the part of the owner. This service is long-overdue! Thanks, again Don!"
We sure appreciate the job you did. You were a pleasure to work with. We will definitely be recommending you to others!"
We are very pleased with the results of listing our home for sale using your reduced fee program. We averaged about 6 showings per week" ... "The interesting part is that the buyers had been on a mission trip for several months in Bolivia and had been tracking our home by internet until they returned home. Very satisfied with the service--thank you again."
Bob & Candace
"I have used Martin Properties personally to help me and my wife sell our home as well as purchase a new one. I also refer my clients that do not have a Realtor because I know they will give my clients the same attention they gave me when I needed the help. I would recommend anyone that is looking to purchase or sell a home to consider the personal attention you will get when using Martin Properties."
Lehman Hailey, Jr
President Evergreen Mortgage
"I recommend Martin Properties. As a former customer, I found their service and performance to be exemplary.
We sold our house for the amount we wanted, in less than twenty-four hours, then found our current home at an incredible price. Everything about the deal was smooth and simple, with every twist and turn navigated with ease.
We have been living in our current home for about six years and could not be more satisfied, but should we ever want or need to relocate, the first call goes to Martin Properties."
Kirby W. Allen
"Cindy and I would like to thank you for your help in selling our home and for the purchasing of our new home. You showed incredible poise keeping all parties calm when the buyers for our home became difficult. In the end we sold high and bought low. Who could ask for more?"
Richard and Cindy Furman
"My compliments on the professionalism, knowledge and patience that you provided while representing me in both the sale of my former home and the purchase of my new home. I would unequivocally recommend you to anyone needing professional real estate representation."

Mt. Juliet, TN
"Thanks again for representing us! I am so glad that you called me and that we decided to use you as our agent. You literally saved us thousands of dollars! I wish you the best of luck and truly hope that you succeed in this venture. I don't know how you can't! I will recommend you to anyone looking to sell their home.
"We had attempted to sell our home on our own by using directional signs and listing it in the Tennessean. After several weeks, we had no offers and no one really interested. Don Martin approached us about listing our home on the MLS while still being able to sell it by owner. Within a couple of weeks we had several interested lookers and by the third week we not only had one offer but two with a third one waiting to see if the sale would go through. I would highly recommend the service Don provides. We had our house listed in the MLS for a reasonable fee and saved thousands on real estate fees. We will definitely use this service again if selling a property and would encourage anybody else to do so as well."
Jim and Elizabeth Wash,
"Thank you for all your help on the sell of our condo. We listed it on a Wednesday, and we had a signed contract by Monday. I do appreciate your help. We could not have done it without you.
Nashville Mortgage Company, LLC

We have to write and thank you for helping us quickly sell our home this year. We tried Marketing the house ourselves but it soon became obvious that most of the "lookers' were exactly that- "lookers". We had one serious homebuyer but he kept dragging his feet about the actual offer to buy. That is when we decided to call you. After meeting you and totally understanding your unique service, we made the decision to let you help us. That evening the information regarding our home was on the Internet! We found it hard to believe when the next morning brought a qualified buyer to our home, which resulted in an offer to buy our home at our asking price that afternoon! We feel so fortunate in finding you and want to thank you as well as compliment you on your professional and very efficient service. Best of luck in the future.
Bob and Claudette Walsh
Just a brief note of thanks for your help in selling my home. Your service is very valuable for anyone who is in the position to market and show their home on their own. Getting access to the MLS and Realtor.com is invaluable. I appreciate your willingness to meet with inspectors, etc. when I was out of town to ensure the process continued forward in a timely manner.
Hi Don, I have about 3 people who will be calling you within the next few months to use your services. thanks.
"We sold our house with Martin Properties. It was really pretty effortless. Don Martin explained the program, took some photos, got us on the MLS and the next thing we knew agents started calling to set appointments. We had an accepted offer in 48 hours. There's just no need to pay an agent 1-3% of the value of your home to list your property when it's just as easy to go with Martin Properties at a fraction of the cost."
The sale went fast, cheap and smoothly.
Robin Hill Rd.
We thank you for giving us the courage...
"I want to thank you for all your help and consideration in the sale of our Robin Hill Road property in West Meade. Once we finished the remodel on this house, listed it with your company and appeared in Multiple Listing, I was inundated with phone calls. On the first weekend we had so many appointments for Realtors to show the house that it appeared to be an open house. The lock box made that task very easy for us. By Sunday we had 2 contracts both as over bids. The following week I was asked if we could accept another. With the substantial savings on commissions our deal was most gratifying.
We will definitely use your service again."

"Martin Properties is the perfect solution for the do-it yourself with the MLS exposure. Mr. Martin was always approachable and willing to answer questions. I was able to sell a difficult property fairly quickly. I was very pleased with the service and plan to use this formula again in the future. Thank you...."
Thank you Don for the help..
"Thank you for all your help. Without your service I don't know that we would have ever sold. FYI we sold on our 46th showing. This is a remarkable number because we took a week off and didn't show the house when we went out of town and had five agents call to setup a showing on the day we sold. So our number of showing would have been around 55 in just over six weeks. Wow!."
