Jimmy Martinez Realtor

First and foremost, my goal is to empower and enhance other people’s lives. I do that through providing the simplest of things: great service. Service in my mind means caring; it means putting all my energy, efforts and dedication into protecting and fulfilling the best interests of my clients. Building lasting relationships comes from developing trust and loyalty and by treating people like members of your own family. My career in real estate is a full time, life-long endeavor that I hope will allow me to help as many people as possible.

Jimmy handled my deal with class, quality, and care. He treats you, not like a client, but like family. And once you're in his "family" he's always there for you, no matter what.

Bought a Single Family home in 2008 for approximately $550K in Mid City West, Los Angeles, CA.

Working with Jimmy was a wonderful experience. What sets Jimmy apart is his desire to help families find and build a home, not just buy a house. He was extremely patient and never allowed us to rush into a purchase. His thoughtful questions got us to consider what we really wanted in the short term and the long term. It's been over four years since Jimmy helped us find our home, but he is still proactively in touch with us and is always available to answer questions that arise. These qualities are a testament to his long term commitment to his clients.

Bought a Condo home in 2002 for approximately $250K in West Hollywood North, West Hollywood, CA.

My experience with Jimmy Martinez started in January of 2002 and has continued into a friendship since. Due to my heavy workload, constantly being outbid and having to cancel appointments with Jimmy at times, I did not feel it was fair to him and was ready to call it quits. Jimmy assured me that however long it took the right home at the right price would come along and he would be there.

To add to the matter I was not sure of where I wanted to live. Jimmy had me give him a list of all the areas I was interested in and he took it from there. Silverlake, Los Feliz, Hancock Park, Hollywood, West Hollywood (yes I was one of those clients that could not make up my mind). We looked everywhere and Jimmy showed me what my money would get me at each location, along with the pros and cons of each area.

Ultimately West Hollywood won out. It was a little higher than the original price range I was looking at, but Jimmy did the numbers and showed me that in the big picture the monthly payment would only be slightly higher and the pros more than made up for that. I have been living happily in my condo ever since with no regrets.

I would highly recommend Jimmy Martinez for your real estate needs. He was a pleasure to work with every step of the way.

Sincerely, James Romolo

Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $400K in Hollywood Hills, Los Angeles, CA.

Jimmy is a great realtor and person. As a first time home buyer, he educated me on all aspects of the process, paperwork, and legal stuff. He was supportive and honest when I wanted to give up and encouraged me to keep going. As a result I found a great Condo in the Hollywoood Hills which is a perfect entry into the market for me.

If you work with Jimmy you'll get far more than just a realtor I assure you. Trustworthy, smart, consistent and giving.

Bought a Single Family home in 2004 for approximately $675K in Silver Lake, Los Angeles, CA.

We met Jimmy a few years ago at an open house when we were just beginning to look for our first home. He was so friendly, easy-going, and knowledgeable. He made such an impression that when, a year later, we began to seriously consider being homeowners-- we immediately thought of Jimmy! We loved working with Jimmy and were very impressed with his professionalism and loyalty. He was very patient and took the time to show us all kinds of homes and address all of our questions and concerns. Jimmy was always available and would respond quickly to all of our calls and e-mails, whether it was late night or he was out of town. One of the greatest things about Jimmy is his honesty. He’ll tell you the good and bad about a house. He doesn’t just want to make a sale, he wants you to be 100% happy with your decision and find a home that you love. Jimmy doesn't see clients as one-time experiences but as lifelong relationships. We completely trusted him and his opinions, because we knew that he was really looking out for us. He took all the stress out of our home-buying experience and made it enjoyable. We’ve now been in the same house now for almost 9 years, and it’s been the perfect place for us and our growing family. We’ve referred Jimmy to many of our friends and family, who’ve all been very happy with his services as well. We know that when we're ready to buy a new home, it will be a pleasure knowing we have Jimmy Martinez on our side!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2001 for approximately $450K in Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA.

I got lucky when I chose Jimmy Martinez to help me buy a home in 2001. Not only is he a nice guy, friendly and personable, he is also a hard worker and he will do anything to make sure you are satisfied with the experience. I'm really picky, and I wasn't going to settle for a house until it was the perfect one. This meant a lot of phone calls, emails and house visits over a period of months. Jimmy put up with this like a champ, eventually helping me find my home. He has always been there to recommend workers, keep me posted on home values in the area, and has become a friend. I recommend him wholeheartedly.

Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2008 in Mid City, Los Angeles, CA.

I would highly recommend Jimmy Martinez. I am a commercial architect and have worked extensively in the real estate industry for the past 20 years with a wide range of professionals. I have found Jimmy to be at the top of his game and profession. He is very competent, attentive, focused, diligent and protective of his client's best interest. He goes out of his way to take care of all the little details that are key to the sale. And most importantly, he is a very optimistic person that doesn't get frazzled by the negative tactics or derailed by the shenanigans that are sometimes part of the home buying/selling process. I have recommended Jimmy to a number of my friends and plan to use him in the future.

Sold a Single Family home in 2000 for approximately $625K in Hollywood Hills, Los Angeles, CA.

Jimmy was our agent when we bought our home 12 years ago in Hollywood. He was very new at the job but had such a great attitude and diligence that he was just the right person for us. He negotiated with great skill and we got a great house at a very fair price--one that kept far more than it's original price even during the housing collapse and is now double its value. He was extremely accessible and never made us feel that our concerns were a burden to him. He has a very upbeat personality and is a pleasure to work with. Imagine now that he has all that experience--an unbeatable combination. We strongly recommend him.

Bought and sold a home in 2008.

Jimmy listed and sold my West Hollywood condo in 2008. He also helped me buy my new home where I still reside today in Sycamore Square. He is knowledgeable about the real estate industry, clearly understood my needs, a skilled negotiator, and an all around great guy! Jimmy was there to hold my hand through a very stressful process of selling and buying at the same time (in a market that was quickly turning).

I would recommend Jimmy to anyone looking to buy or sell his/her home.

Sold a Condo home in 2007 in Center City, West Hollywood, CA.

We met Jimmy Martinez in early July and by the beginning of August our condo was in escrow and closed 3 weeks later. Jimmy shared comps of the area with us and set a sales price that was amenable to all parties. Jimmy was the consummate professional through every step of the process. He was a delight to be around and so respectful of our time and schedule. Jimmy always updated us after every showing or open house and gave us such a sense of confidence that we knew from day one that we had listed our condo with the right realtor. Since then Jimmy has stayed in touch with us and became a good friend. We highly recommend Jimmy to anyone who is thinking of buying or selling a home.

Sold a Multi Family home in 2010 for approximately $950K in Mid City West, Los Angeles, CA.

Jimmy makes me feel like I'm his only client because of his high level of service.

He knows exactly the kinds of properties I like, and he constantly checks in to see if he can be of service by letting me know about new properties I might like.

I bought my first Condo through him, and ten years later, I sold it through him. He got me almost exactly my asking price!

To have a relationship with someone for that long shows how loyal and trustworthy he is.

I highly recommend working with Jimmy Martinez if you are buying or selling any kind of real estate.
