Bought a Single Family home
My wife and I again found ourselves in search for another home. We met Marty at the first open house that we attended and we connected like family. Marty arranged for us to view another property after hours that same day. Two weeks into the home search, after being out bid on two properties in this seller's market, we told Marty that we did not want to pursue this emotional roller coaster of. Marty didn't give up. The next day, he sent us a list of a few properties he thought we'd like. That night we viewed one of the properties and Marty opened the door and said "welcome home". Marty knew exactly what we wanted, needed and we fell in love with it. Fast forward two weeks, we were in escrow. Marty spent an entire day at the property to allow the appraiser and home inspector access to ensure continuity of the process. Extremely knowledgeable in his field, Marty keeps you abreast of every step of the process and does what we consider going above and beyond to provide you with a level of personal attentiveness that is second to none! We are so grateful to Marty for his dedication and professionalism.

Marty worked with me in a difficult situation. He was very knowledgable, and responsive.

He was great to work with- We had a difficult situation and Marty did everything he could to work with me and get me the best price he could for my listing. He had to go over and above in every situation to get this completed.

Senior Loan Originator
Marty Griffith is a top negotiator. That is the first thing that comes to mind... I've seen him go up to bat for his clients on principal and to better their deal when I know a dozen other agents who'd never make a call like that to save their clients a few thousand dollars. The Bay Area market is unforgiving and even though the market has changed, having an agent who looks after their buyers is still paramount. Whether you are listing a house, or buying a home, Marty will give it to you straight. He doesn't tell people what they want to hear, Marty keeps current on market trends and deals in truth and facts. Marty Griffith has earned my respect and my referral of business to him speaks to my confidence in his abilities to look after his clients and successfully manage their transactions.

It sometimes gets overlooked how important great communication and follow thru impact our ability to serve our clients in a stellar fashion. Working with Marty is a fresh reminder of how impactful those qualities are in an agent; so glad to be working with a consummate professional who brings joy to the process.

Marty is a great agent, very knowledgable and very responsive to emails, text or phone. I highly recommend him.
I am looking forward to working with him again!
Marty was very helpful and patient. I had some unforeseen issues trying to rent without professional help. I would highly recommend him for all your real estate needs.
Marty was professionally aggressive in negotiating on behalf of his clients. I was the listing agent , he was the selling agent in this transaction . Marty’s clients were up against 7 offers . We choose Marty’s in part because I reassured my seller he was professional and had what it takes to close. We had s bump in the middle about credits for repairs as our bids were way off. Together we calmly worked it out so that both sides were happy . I’d love to work with Marty again in the near future. After 17 years of business , you typically can see deon United ohone call, who is a team player and who will be problematic.

Bought a Single Family home
When we started the home buying process, we were set up with Marty as our agent through a home buying app. Little did we know how amazing he would be throughout this entire process! From start to finish, Marty was responsive, supportive, and he fought hard for everything in our interest. Because this was our first home buying experience, we had a lot of questions, and he not only answered the ones we asked, but he also preemptively predicted many of our questions and answered them in advance. Working with Marty was an all-around enjoyable and easy experience. We would recommend his services to anyone.

I met Marty because he was the contact that received my email with interest in my (now) house. He was an affable guy, friendly and deeply respectful from moment one...
I say this because as an older woman on her own, you never know what kind of responsive you are going to get. "Hey, how's the grandchildren" or "enjoying retirement" or some harmless but annoying way that "professionals" like to "connect" . Marty didn't say anything to me, he chose to listen first. And listen he does.... I found him to be smart about the details, experienced in that way that he knows what's a issue and what's not. His professionalism is in his character so it's not a marketing game.... Marty listened to me first... and since he did he could assess that I had experience and needed him to be the liaison. In another case, a client might be a new homebuyer and he would and could assess where that person was at and how his skills would be best used to smooth their way. His approach is one of an ally. A knowledgeable professional who gets where his client is and meets them there. No fanfare, no drama, this father of 5 has "seen it all" and his calm deep sense of himself, his community and his work reflect in his service. I fell in love with the guy and can't wait to find my next house (number 11...) under his guidance.

My husband and I met Marty at an open house when we were just starting to look at homes in Oakland, to see what was out there. Marty knows Oakland well. He was very helpful and pointed out the very house we ended up buying a month after meeting him. He walked us through the process at each step and responded to our emails promptly. We are thankful for his support.
