She is so professional and insightful. Her knowledge of the Historic Eastside real estate market and ability to clearly articulate its intricacies educated us quickly. She is an astute observer and a consummate sales woman. I whole-heartedly recommend her as your listing or purchasing agent; she will get the job done!”

“Buying or selling a home can be a challenging experience. Endless forms, a foreign language, “legalese”; not to mention the energy and emotion. Having the right realtor to advise and guide you through the process is truly a gift.”

Working with K.C. has been such a gift! I am constantly impressed by her knowledge and her experience. I called her initially for an interview and the next day signed with her…..she impressed me that much! That decision has proven to be a wise one over and over again.

Within 24 hours she had pictures and a brochure in the works. She wastes no time and she markets relentlessly. She is a “ball of fire”! I have also learned to listen when she speaks because she does know what she is talking about.

If you want someone to represent you to the fullest of her capabilities, (which are enormous) K.C. is your gal. She works tirelessly for your benefit, remains calm in a business where emotion can overcome good judgment, and in the process, wins your admiration!

– Ronald L. Willingham, Author and Founder and CEO of LifeScript Learning

“We chose K.C. Martin to represent us because she quickly understood the type of property we were looking for. But even more important, she seemed to have been inside every listing. K.C. didn’t hesitate to give us her opinions of a property–and she was always right! This let us benefit from her expertise. Not many realtors are willing to go out on a limb like that. K.C. was always looking out for us. She took us to a listing that wasn’t even on our radar. She said it was perfect for us– it was, and it is now ours. Thanks so much KC!”

“It has been an absolute pleasure working with K.C. Martin on the purchase of our Santa Fe home. She intuitively understood what our needs were for a second home; the neighborhood that would best suit us and the type of property that would meet our wants and desires. The entire process from start to finish was handled with grace and expertise. She answered all of our questions from an informed point of view and knew how to guide us through the legal and tangible process of home purchase. We felt that K.C. had not only our best interest in mind, but was mindful of the entire home purchase process. She navigated all parties involved through each step to ensure a successful transaction for everyone. We will work with K.C. again on future real estate transactions and would definitely recommend her to anyone seriously pursuing the purchase of a high end property in the Santa Fe area.”

– Derek Penfield and Rob Driscoll

“K.C. is a passionate realtor who knows the Santa Fe real estate market, and she stays current.

She stays on top of the details and follows through. We highly recommend K.C. Martin.”

Liz and John Crews

“K.C. Martin did a fabulous job; she negotiated the best price and terms for me on the purchase of my house. K.C. was very responsive, available and professional. I whole-heartedly encourage others to use K.C. Martin to sell or buy real estate.”

– Sunny Shender

“After working with K.C. in our search for our Santa Fe home we came trust her and rely on her advice. Since we live out of state, we relied on her for a lot more than would normally be expected of a real estate broker. She gladly offered her help. We are not sure how we would have accomplished our Santa Fe purchase without her. We have also found a friend in her that we cherish!”

– Joanne Fischer and Paul Smith

“K.C. Martin brings to her work a keen mind, eye and ear. These natural faculties guide her ability to assess the needs of clients, and then work with the ‘whole person’ towards their sale or purchase. Taken together with K.C.’s professional ethics, experience and sincerity, the inference readily concludes that she is, indeed, a broker’s broker, and one with whom I have been pleased to have been associated.”
