"As this was our first time selling a home, we were completely lost. Our minds were quickly put at ease when Marty Becker, who was highly recommended, agreed to help us. He comes ready with experience and strategies to deal with any real estate situation. In the case of our co-op sale, he knew how to navigate the complicated process of working with all the players involved; from prototypical buyer, thru special lender, thru co-op review board, to special escrow. He ran several, reliable, analyses throughout to make sure we were priced to maximize the market. We were extremely appreciative for his professional habit of keeping us up to speed, by text or call, at each juncture throughout the entire process; we were never in the dark.
We were also, super impressed with his skilled aerial drone and videography service. The results were stunning and certainly improved our listing by showing key viewpoints of the property that cant be seen from the typical human perspective.
His optimism and confidence, eased our apprehension and helped us receive nearly 10% over asking in a bleak, market situation.
We will not hesitate to contact Marty again for any of our real estate ventures.
Thank you, thank you, Marty Becker

"As first time home buyers we were thankful to find and work with someone so caring and professional. Not knowing all the ins and outs of the process heightened our nerves; which were quickly settled when we met Marty Becker of Rainmakers Real Estate Services. During the first few months of working with him it was clear he had a wealth of knowledge and passion for this industry. His desire to get to know us and our needs, along with his patience for first time home buyers, made this experience very enjoyable. We quickly grew to trust him and were wowed by his want to work for us. His professional negotiating skills made it clear he wanted us to get the best and fairest deal. Because of all these reasons he found us our first dream home and in the future we won't consider working with anyone else."

"It was a down market, the recession was in full swing and we were experiencing some challenging issues with our condo association. We approached Marty ready to sell thinking it was probably a ridiculous thought and I'd be better off selling at a different time. But Marty said it would not be a problem and helped us navigate an incredibly difficult short sale. In addition to providing help with our appraisal, he also guided us through the entire back and forth between the bank, which consisted of some serious hand holding on his part. Marty has a sound partnership with a legal team and they were able to provide us guidance whenever needed throughout the process. We couldn't have been happier with our results and would recommend Marty to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."

"Once we made the decision to short sale our home, we were advised that we should find a specialist to guide us through the process otherwise it could be a complete nightmare. A ‘friend of a friend’ referred Marty to us and we had heard that he short sold this person’s home in just 6 months which we thought was impossible (end to end short sale). When we met with Marty he not only confirmed this story to be true, he told us that he would be able to short sale our home in 6 months as well. We were skeptical. The economy was bad, the mortgage companies and banks developing new rules on a regular basis, and we didn’t actually know this ‘friend of a friend’ to corroborate this story. He was confident and we were curious so we agreed for him to take on the listing. Our home was short sold and all the paperwork was completed in less than 6 months, we were amazed! He truly did work wonders in such a difficult time. Marty is a professional, friendly, helpful and responsive agent who clearly enjoys his work and we will always recommend him to our friends and family when they are seeking to purchase or sell a home. “

"Marty is the full package - a combination of knowledgeable realtor and appraiser who is able to quickly read situations and people in the market. We were first time home buyers that were new to the Seattle housing market and Marty quickly got us the house of our dreams on Beacon Hill. With the current extremely competitive housing market, it took us a few offers and dozens of walkthroughs, but Marty nailed it. When the house that ultimately became “our house” came on the market, Marty was out of town on vacation, but he found a way for us to privately see the house within hours of it being listed. He promptly learned the market of the specific neighborhood we were interested in and put together a comparative analysis that guided us through making a very competitive offer. He quickly put together the contract (while on vacation!) and our offer was submitted within 24 hours of the house being on the market. Our offer was accepted and Marty’s valuation held up to the appraisal - even after our escalation clause kicked in.
Marty was flexible and adapted his approach to fit our needs, which of course meant different things for me and my husband! He is a hard worker without being pushy, and will go to bat for you. He also understands the market and the homebuying process, from open houses to foreclosures to home inspections, and with everything that goes into buying a home, this expertise is really valuable. We cannot recommend him enough!
