My wife and I spent nearly 2 years identifying the exact location we wanted to set down roots and raise our 3 boys, but now one of the biggest decisions of our lives was on the table. Who do we use as a Realtor? Choosing a home from several states away, and trusting someone to identify which home is right for us was a daunting task. We looked online for Real Estate Agents (which we had interviewed plenty), but we were introduced to Martha StClair through a network that our San Diego Realtor belonged to. We had a few phone conversations with Martha, and she was able to tell us all of the information we needed to know! Schools, Sports, Activities, Neighborhoods… the list went on. She was like a human encyclopedia of all of the things that mattered to us. With that, she was hired!
We came out to Georgetown for a look at a few homes that she had selected for us, and all of them were very close to what we were looking for. She was able to give us insight as to the areas, and helped us cross a few off of the list because of the distance to schools or shopping. We went back to CA without a contract on a new home, but we were certain that we’d made the right choice on our Realtor. Martha was extremely patient with us, and after 2 months of her emailing us listings and not finding “the one”, she contacted us with some exciting news. She let us know about a home that she though “was perfect” for us. We scoured the pictures online, but due to work travel, I couldn’t make it out to look at the home. My wife came out solo, and with Martha’s help and guidance we found the absolute perfect place!
Martha had built so much trust and credibility in my mind, that I bought the house sight unseen. I literally did not step foot in the house until the day before we got the keys! People think that I’m crazy for doing that, but my response is “if you had my Realtor, you would have done it too”. It’s as simple as that. She was an absolute Godsend in a very turbulent time, and helped us find the perfect home. We’ve been here for just over a month now (Aug, 2014), and have met several other families in the neighborhood, we’ve got our kids signed up for sports, and are even settling in the local church. This is the best move we’ve ever made, and it was largely because of Martha StClair. If you are considering purchasing a home, do yourself a favor and talk with Martha. I promise you’ll be glad you did.

"OMG! We have found the best realtor in the business. Martha StClair has been so awesome. She is very knowledgeable, always made herself available to us and had great patience. She started helping us before we were even ready to buy. Most people would have lost their patience with us but she is a great person, along with being a great realtor. She showed us exactly what we wanted, listened to our needs and was friendly and helpful the entire way. If you want a great realtor, Martha is the one! Even after we closed she brought us dinner and dessert and still keeps in touch. We have found our realtor for life and will be recommending her to everyone. We are very grateful for Martha. Thanks for all you did." – Thomas and Katrina Van Lith
"Martha assisted us in the search for our dream home in Sun City, Georgetown, Texas last December. It is our pleasure for all to know what a wonderful experience we had with Martha. She was always professional and at all times we felt she had our best interests at heart! She was flexible with her time that would meet our schedules. Martha always put our needs first and ready on a minute notice that a listing had appeared for us to view. Again, we say that if any needs come in the future to list or buy a home , you can be well assured that Martha will be the person we call. We now consider her as a friend and trustworthy professional." – Jay and Carol Henderson
"I would like to take a moment to let you know what a wonderful experience we had using Martha StClair as our Realtor. We were in the process of closing on our current house that we had just sold and decided to lease a house instead of buying right away. Since we had never leased before we felt it would be better to use a Realtor. This is how we found Martha. She spent most of a Saturday driving us around and showing us what was available. Once we made a decision, she handled getting the lease to the leasing company. That should have been the end of it, but we ran into a two week delay on our closing and frantic over timeframes involving moving, etc. Martha stepped in and handled the delay with our lease house and even helped get us information on our house we were closing on. Way above what she needed to do. All I can say is if she spends this much time and effort helping people when they are just leasing a house, I can only imagine how smooth the transaction will be when we purchase our next house. We will definitely use Martha when that time comes. For one of the most important decisions you can make it is great to know that you have a Realtor that listens to your needs." – Liz and Guy Gregg
