We have both bought and sold a house with Mike. Mike and Janet are a pleasure to work with. They are willing to put the work in knowing the details so you are a happy customer. 5/15/2018 S. Cipriano
Mike and Janet were wonderful to work with during the process of selling my house. As a first time seller, I had several questions and concerns and they were very patient and thorough with me. I feel like they helped me to get the best possible deal I could and advised me perfectly along the way. I'd absolutely recommend them to anyone! 5/15/2018 Hayley Barlow
Mike Martinez was excellent to work with in selling our house. He kept us informed about what was going on every step of the way. When he told us something we could depend upon it. After each showing of the house he would give us a call to let us know how it went and what we might expect from the looker. We were very pleased with his negotiations for a final price. I would recommend him very highly to anyone seeking a good realtor. 3/21/2018 Mike & Vickie Dancy
So far Mike has helped us with 4 transactions, the latest being a very successful sell of our home. We received offers the first day on market and closed a month later without any hiccups. The listing, negotiating and details of the transaction were all handled with excellence. Maybe the best part of having Mike as your realtor is the 2 for 1 you get as his wife, Janet, is also fully involved making everything run extremely smoothly. Mike and Janet, thanks again for another job well done! 2/19/2018 Joseph & Heather Fisher
My family and I were very blessed to have Mike Martinez on our side. We felt that his expertise got our property sold in record time. He went to bat for us and kept checking on things, lining up appointments, and overall gave us the attention to detail we needed. We feel you will be as blessed using Mike and Janet. In this volatile world, you need someone who's got your back. Mike is that man.
C. Beatty 1/24/2017
Mike is a pro who handles all the details, big and small, and he kept us informed of every development throughout the process. I'd highly recommend Mike Martinez if you're looking for mountain property.

I listed my home on Buck Mtn with Mike Martinez. Mike is the one who sells the majority of houses on Buck. I would not have listed it with anyone else. But not only Buck Mtn, Mike is very knowledgeable on the surrounding mountain area as well. Mikes advertising and pictures of my house were absolutely fantastic. When I got 2 offers the same day, Mike advised me on the better deal and after the inspection, what repairs to do. Mike was 100% on my team. When I come back to the mountains to live once again, Mike will be the one I'll get to assist me in buying. Hands down, Mike is the one to call whether buying or selling.
T. Trexler 10/22/2016
Our house was listed with another realtor for almost a year. Mike came over within a couple of days after we listed with him. He took lots of pictures and advised us of minor changes that would help sell the house. Within 2 weeks of listing he had a signed offer. He was very professional and kept us informed of what was happening every step of the way. We would recommend him to anyone wanting to sell their property.
C. Jones 10/14/16
Very helpful and knowledgeable. Mr. and Mrs. Martinez or able to offer their wisdom and expertise in selling our house. They assured us that if we waited for the right person the right person would come. They were right. We very much enjoyed working with them. We found them professional well-spoken and intelligent. They always responded to any questions we may have had and they always provided us with more than adequate answers.
P. Reascos 10/14/2016
Mike made the out-of-state sale of our land expeditious and effortless for us. His level of professionalism, expertise, and knowledge in his field, are unmatched in our opinion. Therefore, it is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that we highly recommend him for all your real estate needs.
Sincerely, Joey and Angie Hughes 9/28/2016
Janet and Mike are consummate professionals. Janet oversaw myriad details efficiently and accurately, and her lively, descriptive listing of our home attracted the attention it needed for a blazing fast sale! Mike is a very service-oriented, "can-do" problem-solver. When storms made it impossible to clear out our boat from the property in time for closing, Mike found it a temporary home and moved it himself! But Mike's greatest strength as a realtor lies in his superior skill at mediation. I believe that no other realtor in our market--and few in any market--could have brought the buyers and me together to close the sale! AWESOME job!!!
We appreciate all Mike did to help us find and purchase a home. He was professional, informative, and went out of his way to make the process smooth. We would highly recommend Mike to others looking to buy or sell a home.
Mike was AWESOME! He understood the market and guided us throughout the entire process. His numerous contacts with honest contractors were very helpful as some items needed attention prior to listing the home. I received immediate attention from his contractors at very reasonable prices. Mike was always on top of everything associated with our property while it was on the market. He constantly kept us informed of all activities and was always available at a moment’s notice. I knew he had my back during the entire process. Extremely trustworthy!
Mike and Janet made our vacation home purchase happen quickly and easily. Both were prompt to respond to our initial e-mail, which was on a holiday, were always professional, knowledgeable, truthful and thorough in helping us complete our transactions as out of town buyers. Both my wife and I would confidently recommend Mike and Janet Martinez to anyone who needed a realtor in the Wilkesboro, Wilkes county area.
Mike is one of the finest realtors I have ever worked with and is a credit to his profession. He knows his market very well, is an excellent negotiator and handled all tasks with outstanding professionalism and attention to detail. He went out of his way to accommodate our search efforts on a holiday weekend. Mike and his wife were a pleasure to work with through every step of the process. I would absolutely recommend him.
In the last 35 years, thanks to company transfers, I have had the opportunity to purchase 10 houses. Without a doubt this sale was the most professionally handled sale that I have experienced. Mike was always there to take any question that I needed answered. Mike would contact me on every item that needed to be addressed. He made sure that no dates, information, or requirement was neglected. I selected a very poor company to handle my mortgage and Mike helped me move it over to a much better company part way through the process. We never missed a beat. Mike is the best realtor I have ever worked with on a sale. I couldn't believe the willingness to drive to wherever I might be to deliver a paper or get a signature. Anyone in my area is making a big mistake in not using Mike and his company.
My experience couldn't have been any better! Mr. Martinez is amazing at what he does and truly cares about your wants and needs. Very professional, very easy to contact, and does everything he can to get the deal done! Highly recommended. So grateful I gave him a call!!! Happy in our new home, very blessed!!!

After serving in Iraq we returned to Md.to be with family, and after several years of working and assisting family we decided to return back to the beautiful state of NC but in a more rural setting, in doing so I started to research the mountains of NC and up comes Mr. Mike Martinez so after researching the area we decided to give Mike a call and the rest is history, this miracle worker got us into one of the most beautiful homes in the area, he also set us up with an awesome lender as well, several times I had to ask when do take off, and it's his wonderful wife as well Mrs. Janet Martinez both of these people are the best and we highly recommend them, they do not quit until you are in your new home, we are proud to welcome the Martinez family into our Marine family so if you are moving to Wilkes County NC and you want the best take it from us give Mike and Janet Martinez of NC Mountain Investments a call!
We just had the pleasure of working with Mike and Janet Martinez on a real estate deal. We were very impressed with their professionalism and ability to make this one of the best experiences we have had. We have bought houses all over the US and so we are quite experienced in the things that could potentially go wrong. They are a great team and go the extra mile making sure every detail is perfect. We would definitely recommend them to anyone.
Mike and Janet make real estate transactions as simple as possible. From scouting properties to final paperwork, they are prompt, thorough and professional offering guidance at every step. Highly recommend them for any serious buyer or seller.
My husband and I chose to contact Mike regarding a property we saw here online because of his stellar client reviews. Well, after helping us find and obtain the perfect home for my entire family I couldn't be happier that we did so. Mike and Janet were super-responsive to our inquiries and needs. They assisted us so well through the process that their side of the purchase was pleasant and easy. I couldn't recommend them more highly. When the rest of my family cross state lines to join me, I know who they'll be calling when it's their time to find a home. Thank you, Mike!
Our experience with Mike and Janet was no less than superb. I think the thing that we were most impressed with was their total honesty throughout the process. We would highly recommend them to anyone.
Earl & Jean Stevens 1/9/2016
Mike and Janet were great to work with. They took the time to make sure we were comfortable with the selling price of our home. Mike was very honest about the market and where he thought the price should be in order to sell our home and we really appreciated that. Mike and Janet kept us informed and really made us feel they were working to get us the best deal on our home. Thanks so much to both of you!
Working with Mike & Janet was a pleasure. Mike and his wife Janet are an excellent team. Janet runs the office, handles all the difficult tasks and Mike gets to drive around all day working with customers. The entire process of buying our home was smooth and always communicated in a professional manner. I would highly recommend using mike and Janet for any real-estate transaction.
11/12/2015 Dan 236
My house would not have been sold at top dollar were it not for Mike and all the effort he made to get it sold. He is THE best realtor to have in your corner. After having listed my home for two years with a different realtor, with absolutely no results, I called Mike. He was at my house within a day! He told me what should be done to the house in order to get top dollar. He knew the people to call to get the house in tip-top shape. He took oodles of photos, and had them on Zillow within days. After he found the buyers, repairs were needed to the house before the closing date. Because I live in Chicago, with my permission he coordinated all of the people to get the repairs done. He was in constant contact with me. By the time I got into town to sign the closing documents, everything was done. All I had to do was sign at all the dotted lines! Mike is THE BEST realtor I've dealt with. Keep up the good work, Mike! You are the best!
C Soler Rodriguez 11/07/2015
Mike was our dual agent for our recent home purchase. Both Mike and Janet were extremely professional and knowledgeable. Their negotiation skills helped us reach a very equitable deal with the seller. I would definitely recommend Mike Martinez for his honesty and extra efforts to make our home purchase go smoothly.
I interviewed for a position in Wilkes County in December of 2014. After my interview I contacted Mike Martinez for information about possible housing if I in fact was offered a job in Wilkes County. I decided to rent a house when I moved here in February of 2015 and was ready to buy a home in June. Mike and Janet were able to listen to my requests and dreams and did the research needed to educate me as to the options available. I found my home very soon, made an offer which was accepted and worked toward completing the steps to purchase the home. All along the way I knew Mike and Janet were only a phone call or an e-mail away. I am very grateful for everything they did to make my dream come true and I highly recommend them to anyone who is searching.
B. Dula 8/13/2015
Mike was a great pleasure to work with. He treated me as if I was his only client. He kept me informed of all happenings dealing with the sale of my house. Everything was taken care of through the whole process. He said that he was working for me and he proved it. The process was effortless on my part.

Mike is very professional and easy to work with. He was able to take care of our families needs so we could make the most of a weekend of looking at homes. And he was able to help with closing the deal so we could have our dream home.

Now that the 'dust' from our move from NC to TN is starting to settle, even though there are still boxes to unpack, I wanted to make a comment about our experience with Mike and Janet Martinez. The sale went quite quickly...like listing the house on Thursday, had two viewings on Saturday, and had an offer on Monday! This was followed up with 2 additional offers within a day later. Our experience with Mike was MORE than exceptional! He readily offered suggestions, but always followed up with the comment "But, it's your decision". That really put us in charge of the whole process. Beside being totally businesslike and very responsive to any and all questions, Mike and Janet are very personable and friendly people. I'm just sorry we did not know them on a personal basis outside of this transaction. I would have considered them dear friends. If by some chance I ever move back to the Wilkesboro area I would definitely contact them for handle any home purchase for us. I encourage anyone looking for an Agent that will go out of their way to assist a buyer/seller to contact Mike and Janet Martinez. You will not be sorry.

As a first time homebuyer, I was very nervous and intimidated by the whole process. But Mike and Janet were very knowledgeable, patient and answer every question I had, no matter how minute. They were always available and always professional. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

We are very happy with Mike's service as a buyer’s agent. We (from Raleigh area) purchased a mountain house. Mike represented us well during due diligence, negotiation, and closing. We strongly recommend Mike Martinez and would want him representing us again.

This is the second time I have had the pleasure of working with Mike Martinez. The first time I went to him looking to purchase a cabin in the mountains and his knowledge of the area and available properties was very impressive. It took a while as I was looking for a very specific type of property but his patience and determination finally paid off and now I have the perfect cabin. This time was the sale of an investment property I owned in Wilkes and he guided me through the whole process in a very professional manner. Mike and the crew not only sold the place very quickly but kept informed of all showings and since I am not a local he would check up on the property while I was away. Much appreciated and Mike will be the first person I reach out to on my next real estate adventure.

Estamos muy complacidos en compartir la buena experiencia que tuvimos con Mike y su esposa Janet Martínez y su compañía North Carolina Mountain Investments, en la compra de nuestra casa.

If you are looking for a real estate professional who answers their own phone, returns calls promptly, shows listings on your schedule (including Sundays), doesn't pester you with follow-ups (stalking), is frank and knows their market - and who doesn't want all that - then you will be delighted to work with Mike Martinez and Janet Martinez. I saw the listing online, called Mike and saw the property after a two day drive from Miami - on a Sunday. He never rushed me through the showing and allowed me to wander, measure and explore for as long as I needed. He passed on all information he knew about the property, gave guidance and relayed questions to the seller in a timely manner. The offering and acceptance were handled electronically, without a hitch and Mike and Janet provided a list of local vendors for items like surveys and inspections during the due diligence period. Mike and I walked the property prior to closing and he came to closing with me as well. Mike made sure the water was on so I could stay the night! Janet handled all the electronic paperwork and email traffic seamlessly and quickly responded to my emails. I recommend this team without reservation - personable, professional and always available. Thanks Mike and Janet!
Would highly recommend Mike over other realtors in area. He is very knowledgeable and willing to help any way possible. Hard worker that always answers his phone and returns your calls. Very satisfied with using Mike as our realtor.

From the beginning Mike was very professional and knowledgeable of what needed to be done. They made it very easy for me, especially since I did not live there. I will recommend to anyone there services.
03/15/2015 - avairwing
Mike does an outstanding job. I highly recommend Mike for any real estate needs you may have. He is a very genuine person, and will use his services again. Mike gave me names of local banking, and Attorneys so i was able to get my financing lined up from out of state. He even personally dropped off my paperwork at two offices to speed up the process, and meet my deadlines. It was a smooth transaction for the situation. I was in Ohio, the property in North Carolina, and the seller in Florida.
03/14/2015 - daniel light301
We have used Mike Martinez twice in helping us sell our home. One time in 2010 and now in 2015. Mike along with his wife Janet have been wonderful to work with and have led us through the process every step of the way in getting all the information we needed to the new owners. I do not hesitate at all in recommending Mike as your realtor in selling your home or finding the right place for you to live.
Bob Lawhorn 03/05/2015
Both Mike and Janet made our experience purchasing our first vacation home a true pleasure. They were familiar with the area and those within the area that had the expertise that we needed to close. Each person that we were introduced to were kind, friendly and professional. Our experience was beyond what we expected. I would strongly recommend Mike and Janet for anyone looking for a real estate professional....he is not a real estate agent but a real estate professional.
02/19/2015 - trevels
My husband and I had such a great experience buying a beautiful cabin in N Carolina. We saw Mike's real estate signs posted throughout the mountain and decided to call him. Within an hour, he showed up with a portfolio of cabins for us to see. Mike was very professional and very knowledgeable. He took his time showing us different homes. Never once did we feel pressured into buying. We fell in love with a cabin, put a deposit down on it, and everything went very smoothly from there on. we live in Miami, Florida and the process we have been a lot more difficult for us if it weren't for both Mike and his wife Janet. Thanks, Mike and Janet".
12/12/2014 - marod18
Our experience with Mike was second to none. We told him our desires in a property, and our price range, and he selected a range of properties that covered both the minimum we would like to the top notch. He was open, honest, and straightforward. The home we ended up purchasing was not yet officially on the market yet, but he went the extra mile to make sure we were able to see the home, and kept communications flowing for a very pain free negotiation. Would recommend Mike to anyone, any time - great person, super Realtor.
12/12/2014 - amitchell41
Mike and Janet are true masters of real estate. They effectively led us through the many intricacies of selling our home in a difficult market. We highly recommend them and would not hesitate to engage their services again.
11/14/2014 - rmack746
Mike and Janet are true professionals. They gave us great advice and were always there when we had a question. Since we live out of town we had to handle some things via email and fax. They talked us through all of that. I would highly recommend them !!
Mike represented both seller and buyer. He was very professional and fair with us. When we toured the house, he told us some things about the house and neighborhood that less professional Realtors may not have. His knowledge of the area was outstanding. The house was reasonably priced and we decided to pay the asking price. When the inspection pointed out a couple of issues, he worked out a resolution to our satisfaction. Since we are hours away from this property, Mike contacted a couple of contractors he trusted and had the repairs addressed.We would recommend Mike and Janet to anyone buying property in Wilkes county.
11/01/2014 - cellemmer
Mike and Janet were amazing. They were able to answer all our questions and worked hard to make sure we were informed on all the pertinent information dealing with our purchase. They were in constant communication with us throughout the process. We can't have asked for anything more in a real estate transaction. Perfect from start to finish.
10/30/2014 - D2LA
Great company to work with. Both Mike and his wife we great. Their knowledge was excellent and the help they gave to my wife and me was wonderful. I would recommend and already have recommended mike to my friends.

I have used many real estate agencies through the years but none have been as professional and responsive as Mike and Janet. I feel like they worked to get me the best deal without jeopardizing the contract. We couldn't have been more pleased and would highly recommend them for your real estate needs.
Every step of the way was accurate as he described and very professionally done. He sold my lot in a very creative way that he hoped/expected to do. I was very pleased with his service as well as the service of his office staff. All very courteous and competent.
It is rare that you met someone that can met your expectations while doing his job in a professional way. Mike Martinez work out many hard details in order to sell our home. I believe that had it not been for Mike effort we would not have sold out home. I now have a great deal of respect for Mike and Janet. If in the future I need the services of a Realtor; I will be calling Mike and Janet. Thank you Mike and Janet for a job well done.

Mike and Janet went above and beyond all expectations. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking to purchase or sell any property. We would never use anyone else.
Keith, Heather and I really enjoyed having Mike and Janet as our Realtor they help our selling and buying smooth and enjoyed working with them. Thanks again for all you have done for our family and we love our new home.
Mike and Janet consistently get high marks on reviews and are consistently among the regions top producers in sales volumes. Competent and effective without being overbearing. I have been in the business for 35+ years and have used scores of Realtors and closed hundreds of real estate transactions in my career. They have represented me as both buyer and seller in at least a half dozen transactions in the past three years. In my experience, there is no intelligent choice other than to use Mike and Janet if you are buying or selling in this region.
Scott Nafe 9/26/2014
Just in case you care, Mike and Janet are also just plain good people. Honest, hardworking folks who are loving parents and contributing members of the community. I am grateful to claim them as friends and to have them in my life.
Mike and his wife, Janet, are wonderful people who worked very hard to make a happy experience for us when we decided to sell our little cabin in Buck Mountain. They came highly recommended by others who employed them in real estate matters in the mountain. They exceeded our expectations in every way possible They are second to none in expertise, efficiency, courtesy, and professionalism, yet they provided much kindness, understanding and compassion regarding any concerns or situations we cared to discuss. They are very hospitable people who care about their clients and show it in many ways as they go beyond the call of duty. We appreciate that the whole experience left us with new friends and we cannot praise them enough. We are extremely pleased and satisfied with our whole selling experience because they were exactly the right people for the job and they found a buyer in less than 6 months for us. We think that is awesome. We are grateful we found them and for all they did for us.
Patricia Shankle 9/9/2014
Mike was very professional. He told us all of the information we needed to sell our home. Janet was thorough with the description of our home. Mike was always on time with bank, lawyer, and seller transactions.
Was a pleasure to work with. Mike made purchasing our home very easy and problem free. Very knowledgable about the community and area. Would definitely recommend his team!
Mike and Janet are the best team I have ever worked with in the real estate business. With this purchase being my 6th property purchase, and with 2 years working in the mortgage industry, I have had my fair share of experiences in the industry, and this team is forging new ground. After a quick hour of paperwork in their office, they were off taking care of 90% of the leg work in the process. Inspectors, attorneys, insurance agents, seller negotiations … I had nothing to worry about with the Martinez family on my side. What a breeze! I am a big fan of cultural values for businesses, and have to give them top grades on Integrity, Quality, Collaboration, Innovation/Creativity, and the biggest, “doing the right thing”. Mike knows this business inside and out, and knows how to close deals and has a strong local team of partners who really know how to deliver for their customers. “But wait, there’s more”: As new members of the community, we were lost as far as directions, groceries, furniture, farmer markets, short cuts to avoid traffic, and even local festivals. Mike and Janet build great relationships, and I felt comfortable asking for any insight, and trusted I was receiving a guanine and honest answer. I WILL use this team for ALL of my future real estate dealing in their area!!!
Both Mike and Janet were two of the most pleasant and professional people that we have ever worked with! The love of their work and the pride they they take in doing their best for there clients (both buyer and seller) was obvious. Mike was always available anytime we had questions and always kept up up to date on how things were going. I would recommend them with no reservations whatsoever!
Tom Mullis 7/21/2014
Mike listed our home on a Monday, had a showing on Saturday and got us an offer! Mike was great to work with, got the house sold quickly and easily! We would definitely use him again and had a truly great experience! I highly recommend Mike and Janet for any real estate needs!
"Mike and Janet were both very helpful, insightful about the market, and helped guide us to make informed decisions without pressuring. They made the home buying process much less stressful."
"We were absolutely thrilled to see Mike go to work so diligently to get our property sold at the best price. This home was the 8th one we have owned in our years of marriage and no agent has expended the energy and fortitude to get the job done like he did. There was never a time when he did not answer his phone or get back to us immediately if he couldn't answer at that moment and that was anytime of any day. You can't go wrong or lose with this gentleman working for you. How grateful we are to you, Mike. Keep up the excellent quality of work you do."
"Mike and Janet are extraordinary Realtors! We immensely enjoyed working with both of them. After describing the home we hoped to find, Janet complied a booklet of info about the houses Mike was showing us. This was a very helpful tool. We made an offer on the first home we saw and closed in only 2 weeks! Mike and Janet made it happen, taking care of all the details. Janet and Mike work as a great team. Both are professional, knowledgeable and friendly. We highly recommend them!"
Sherry and Rick 5/22/2014
"We have really enjoyed working with Mike and Janet Martinez. They have worked so hard to help us sell and buy another house. Mike has stayed on top of everything and kept us informed all the way. I would never consider working with anyone other than Mike Martinez. What a wonderful and fun experience."
"My wife and I spent many weekends looking for our dream property without success. Once we made arrangements with Mike it was easy. The first property we looked at was perfect! Mike has a gift that allows him to see what you describe. Mike and Janet are true Professionals and treated us as friends. Thanks again for all your help."
Dale & Rhonda Hathcock 5/8/14
"Mike and Janet Martinez exhibited excellence in every step of our selling process. Mike went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that we were fairly represented in the purchase contract for our home. We witnessed first hand how clients of other agencies were treated on more than one occasion and without a shadow of doubt, Mike will be our go to guy for any future real estate transactions. His knowledge and work ethic far exceeded our expectations. Ours was not a high profit home, but at no point where we ever treated as anything less than multi-million dollar home owners!"
"Mike Martinez was excellent in helping us sell our home. He went above and beyond in all matters concerning our home and the sell. Janet Martinez also went above and beyond. We are so grateful to both of them. We would highly recommend Mike to anyone selling their home/property. Thanks for everything, Mike and Janet!"
"From the time we put our house on the market we have experience nothing but professionalism with Mike and his wife Janet. Once we receive an offer on our home Mike handled everything quickly and efficiently. If you want to sell your home listed with Mike. Sent from my droid please excuse the errors."
"Mike and Janet were fantastic to work with. We had a very short time frame in which we needed to buy and started our search during the holidays. Mike had been highly recommended by some of my work associates. He gave an honest opinion of what he thought we should do when making an offer, and went to bat for us. It was a wonderful experience. If we ever decide to list our home, Mike will be our listing agent and buying agent. Thanks again!"
"Mike Martinez has been a pleasure to deal with. He does every aspect of his job perfectly. Mike and His wife Janet made my husband and I feel comfortable with the buying process and went above and beyond for us. We would highly recommend this team to anyone in the buying or selling process of their home. We can not be anymore happy with our new dream home, Thanks Mike and Janet !!!
"My husband and I are in the process of relocating from another State. We had found a property of interest that was listed on North Carolina Mountain Investments by Mike Martinez. We contacted Mike to make the necessary arrangements. When we met Mike in person, even for the very first time, we found him to be very warm and friendly, and a very honest, sincere, and professional man who was also very patient and easygoing. He always made us feel welcomed and at home. Mike really has an uncanny perception and talent in being able to find just the right home and property. He is a very hardworking man who is dedicated to serving people... and one who goes the extra mile in making things happen! Mike and Janet are a great team. They never left us hanging or wondering about anything. They were always there for us, and whenever the rare occasion arose that we had to leave a message, they were always very prompt in returning our phone calls and answering our emails. They worked very hard for us in pulling everything together... especially our long-distance settlement! We could not have hoped or asked for a better experience or a better team than Mike & Janet. We can truly say that anyone looking for Real Estate Brokers who are dedicated to serving others, Mike & Janet are the ones to contact. We very highly recommend North Carolina Mountain Investments and Mike & Janet Martinez. We promise you, you will never be disappointed -- whether you are buying or selling. Mike, we are forever very grateful for everything you and Janet did for us in making our dream come true! With a sincere Thank You and heartfelt gratitude, we wish you both many blessings."

"Our total experience with Mike Martinez in purchasing our property could not have been better. Working with Mike and Janet was truly a pleasure. From the first contact about the property we were interested in to the closing of the deal, Mike was very responsive to our needs and questions, and he always got back to us quickly. After we made the offer on the property to Mike we thought we would have to wait a couple of days for a response, but within thirty minutes of making the offer Mike had contacted the owner and got back with us and the deal was sealed. We could not have been more pleased with our entire association with Mike and Janet."
"Mike was more than some guy who helped us find a home, he followed up, gave information on the latest listings, some that had literally just been put up. To me, Mike is like family, honest, trustworthy, tactful in negotiations, truly the whole package. If you are interested in buying a home, even if you require specific tastes or hard to meet requirements, this is THE man to use."
"We would like to thank Mike and Janet for the great job they did selling our house. Before meeting Mike we consulted two other brokers. Both gave us sad discouraging stories about the weak housing market in Wilkes County. Mike looked at our property, a mountain home and barn on 13.9 acres, and said, "I can sell this house." And he did! We listed with Mike on August 28th. October 4th we signed a purchase agreement with an out-of-town buyer. And closed November 18th. Just 76 days start to finish! With both the seller and buyer out of town all the details to make the sale happen fell on Mikes' shoulders. He stayed on top of everything and got it. Kathy and I have moved a lot and bought and sold houses. In our experience Mike stands head and shoulders above any realtor we have ever met. He is honest, gives it to you straight and works hard. There is no doubt that we hired the right man to sell our house. We will tell everyone, if you want to get your house sold call Mike Martinez!"
Kathy & Wayne Dawson 11/20/2013
"On a recent visit to North Carolina, my husband and I fell in love with the land so much that the day before we were due to fly home to Oregon, we contacted Mike out of the blue about putting in an offer on some land. He and Janet were great. They got us right in and the documents ready to go, and Mike negotiated the deal that same day. Once we returned to Oregon, Mike and Janet were both always reachable via phone or email and it was a very easy process. We would definitely contact them again if we wanted to buy or sell property, as well as highly recommend them."
W. Hirte 11/15/2013
"I was having a very hard time selling my home. It was on the market for 2 years with two different realtors. The last 3 months it was on the market, it was showed 1 time. I listed it with Mike and immediately began showing it again and within 3 weeks, had an offer. Three weeks later, it was sold and closed. Thank you Mike for all your help!"
"Mike really knows his stuff. Experience counts, and Mike is the #1 Realtor in Wilkes County for a reason. We met with Mike, told him what we were looking for (which was very specific), and he found it for us. Once we zeroed in on the property, he was superb in the negotiation process, and we signed on the house fast. If you're looking to buy or sell a house or property, I highly recommend Mike Martinez!"
C. Taylor 10/15/2013
"We began working with Mike thru a referral from our son. Mike was great to work with, always available to show us properties at our convenience. He went above and beyond to help us locate the perfect lot. The lot was not even for sale, however Mike was able to contact the lot owner and with her approval Mike showed us the property on Saturday, we closed on the property on Wednesday afternoon. Mike made every effort to find the best lot available for us. We would highly recommend Mike as your realtor whether you are buying or selling."
J. Miller 10/8/2013
"Thank you Mike for helping us find our new home, thank you for your patience and understanding and thank you for making the price happen! I look forward to being your neighbor, stop by some time if you're up my way and we'll have a drink and enjoy the view you helped us get."
S Crawford 10/05/2013
"Mike wasn't afraid to jump in and assist in relocating my tenant when I sold my property recently. He made a difficult situation easier. Living out of town made it difficult for me to handle the situation appropriately, but Mike took care of everything. I would use Mike again for my real estate needs."
S. Baker 8/30/2013
"Pleasant experience. Mike Martinez was very helpful, and very professional. I highly recommend him! Thank you Mike and Janet for all your help! I'm looking forward to the day that I build a cabin on my piece of land."
"This property had been for sale since 2006 with three other real estate agents and Mike Martinez was able to move it for us. He was very professional and helped us every step of the way."
"Mike and Janet are professionals. We were looking for a mountain cabin and Mike showed us only those which met our specifications, knowing our time was limited to search. His knowledge of the area was very helpful and he was willing to spend extra time helping us to narrow down our choices. Negotiating and closing were made simple because of his skill. We found our perfect cabin and had an enjoyable experience, too!"
"Mike was very responsive and knowledgeable about the property we bought and walked the entire property with us. He knew detailed information about the property and the folks that own property surrounding it. He is a professional and I would work with him again."
C M 5/1/2013
"Mike showed us an existing house about a year before we decided to buy land. Though we weren't interested in that particular house, Mike was very helpful and willing to discuss our options for the future at length. Once we decided to look for land, I emailed Mike and was on the phone with him in less than 15 minutes! The next day Mike took us to a couple houses and the land we fell in love with. I believe he knew from the moment we spoke, this would be our property and would be perfect for us. One month later, we are land owners and couldn't be happier. Mike and Janet have been very supportive during this process and I know they will be right by our side as we choose a builder and design our dream home. We are blessed to call Mike and Janet friends. "
Ryder and Becky Chambers 3/28/13
"We have dealt with many Real Estate Agents & Brokers over the years but Mike Martinez stands out as a true professional in his field. To say he is hard-working would be an understatement. His wife Janet, a professional in her own right, enhances the overall operation of the buying and selling experience. They complement each other which leads to a more efficient business. From the moment we met Mike, he couldn't do enough for us. Everything from helping us find a temporary rental home, so that we could do a more systematic search to renegotiating a near dead deal. He even helped us move. If you are contemplating the western NC area, do yourself an immense favor and contact Mike and Janet Martinez first, you will not regret it."
R/S Mark & Michaele 3/19/2013
"Above and beyond. Mike and Janet successfully guided us through what turned out to be a very drawn-out and difficult negotiation. They kept us calm and focused as we ended up with a great house that meets all of our needs at a very reasonable cost. Mike gave us spot-on insights during our wrangling period, arranged for the attorney, found folks to handle inspections, and even pointed us toward the appropriate place to get a good deal on insurance (much better than was quoted by our own agent of 25 years.) But wait, there's more! After the closing, when other Realtors say thanks and adios, Mike coordinated contractors to handle septic installation, electrical inspection, some minor plumbing and heating repairs and introduced us to local merchants for appliances and furniture. If you're looking for a real estate agent who will go the extra country mile, call Mike. Above and beyond."
"I've bought/sold several properties over the years. I've not come across a Realtor that is as professional, timely and dedicated to their vocation as North Carolina Mountain Investments (specifically Mike and Janet). They handled everything from initial negotiation of our purchase through attorney selection, inspections and closing and were always several steps ahead of me which I view as no easy task. To provide context on their attention to detail: We stopped briefly at a drive-thru to feed our kids on the way to the closing. The store forgot to include some items and we had to return there briefly. When we arrived, the store had already received a call from Mike informing them of our return and our items were literally waiting for us without discussion. Enough said."
"If you are looking to buy a North Carolina mountain home you have found the best Realtor out there. My husband and I live almost three hours away from the home we purchased. Mike and his team took care of every detail for us. Mike and Janet are honest, hardworking people who do the right thing for their clients."
"Mike and Janet Martinez are the best real estate people with whom we have ever dealt. Having bought and sold real estate numerous times in the past, I can truthfully say that this experience is the most pleasant we have ever encountered. Mike is extremely knowledgeable and very detail oriented. He goes the extra mile in everything that he does and insured that our property was market ready and presented in the best manner possible. They know how to market property and their follow through is impeccable. I highly recommend Mike and Janet."
"Mike and Janet did an excellent job helping me to find exactly what I was looking for in a home. Janet walked me through several homes online and decide which ones I wanted to look at. Mike then took me around to the various homes. In just one day we found what I was looking for and made an offer that day. They helped me decide the many factors involved in making an offer. One month later I was moved into my home. I highly recommend them and thank them for everything they did for me."
I was fortunate to have retained Mike and his wife Janet as my Real Estate Professionals in purchasing the beautiful property that reflects just what I was looking for. Mike was there for me through every step of the process, and I felt that he was genuinely concerned with my total satisfaction. I would recommend this winning team to anyone interested in being treated with the care and concern that is the hallmark of a realtor destined to be number one in their field.
Sincerely, Glenn W. Van Cleve 12/6/12
After listing with another agent for over 5 months, resulting in no showings and only one inquiry, I cancelled my contract and hired Mike Martinez. Less than 3 weeks later there were 3 showing appointments resulting in a sale to the first person who saw the house. Mike was totally professional and responded to any calls I made to him within the day.
The buyer's realtor acted like a novice and was sometimes very unpleasant. Mike, more than once, had to rescue the sale by working very patiently with the agent and the buyer.
Mike's knowledge of the market is exceptional. I would highly recommend him to anyone either looking to buy or to sell.
Mike and Janet Martinez handled the sale of our house with excellence. Mike was there every time that we needed him and went above and beyond the call of duty in every instance. I have never seen anyone in any business perform their duties in a more professional manner than Mike did. I highly recommend him to anyone.
We have purchased and sold many homes throughout the years and still currently own several. Needless to say, we have interacted with a multitude of Realtors over the course of time. Mike and Janet Martinez are without a doubt the BEST Realtors that we have ever encountered. They are genuinely good honest people that care about their clients. They responded promptly and reassuringly each time we called. Because we were moving to NC from another state, we had to rely heavily on Mike to meet with contractors, inspectors, and others involved in the purchase of our home. Mike met with each of these people promptly and courteously. He reported to us and shared his expertise and extensive knowledge of the area. He was unfailingly forth right and sincere. We trusted him explicitly. There was never a phone call that went unanswered or was not returned. He did not lose his patience as any issues arose. He not only became our trusted Realtor but also became an example to us of long lost honesty and decency in a business world. We would highly recommend working with Mike and Janet Martinez. They were a calm and reasonable presence throughout our move to NC and we will always be grateful that we were lucky enough to find and work with them.
Mike and Janet were wonderful to work with. Very helpful and professional in the purchase of our property. Been a long time since we did a new purchase and they made the process very easy and painless. They always kept us in the loop about what was going on. Phone calls were always answered or returned promptly. They truely cared about finding the right property for us. We would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a great agent.
Mike went above and beyond all expectations of a Real Estate Professional. When our first offer fell through - he continued to work with us (for many months) to attain the home of our dreams!! It was a pleasure to work with him and I would highly recommend him for anyone looking to buy or sell real estate. He gives his work 110% - We would give him an A+ ~ THANKS MIKE!!
We had never purchased land before and certainly hadn't built a house in the mountains. Mike and Janet Martinez took us under their wings, guided us to the perfect mountain site, found us the greatest contractor (Smokie Green), and continued to help us until the cabin was finished….completely and perfectly according to our plan. They know every place in the northwestern North Carolina Mountains and they know everybody there. They used all of their sources and all of their energy to support us. For example, very early in the morning when we arrived at the building site on the day the well was dug, Mike and Janet were already there with doughnuts and fingers crossed for a gusher. Sure enough, we eventually got a gusher which is maybe the highest flow on the mountain. We were novices. We were scared. We were hopeful. Basically, we turned almost everything over to them and Mr. Green. We trusted them so much that we seldom visited the site while the cabin was being built. Trusting them was the best move we could have made. The entire process was without a single hitch, and the site they found for us and the cabin they help us build are so perfect that we appreciate the place increasingly every day. We could never trust anyone more.
Mike went above and beyond the call of duty. I only regret that we didn't contact him sooner. He made a very difficult situation a little easier to handle. Should I ever have the need for an agent in this region of North Carolina he will be the first one that I contact. I would highly recommend Mike Martinez.
My wife and I used Mike & Janet Martinez as a buyer's agent in Wilkesboro, NC. They were awesome. We never had any trouble getting in touch with them; they seemed to be working 24/7. They took care of everything with great professionalism but also were very personal. Whenever we have enough money to buy another house or sell ours, we will certainly use them as our agent again. I recommend them to anyone. I've already recommended them to my mom who has since used them as well. I liked them so much I plan on going out of my way to post this review everywhere I can think of.
Mike was very helpful, he always answered my phone calls and returned calls with any new information, I was quite impressed with the overall experince and with my new home.
Mike and Janet were very helpful and professional in the purchase of property. They worked for us, and were very honest and dependable in keeping us informed on all matters. They went the extra mile to overcome obstacles that were in the way of the purchase. They became our real estate friends, and we recommend them to anyone who has a need for a real estate agent.
John and Pheobie Castor 5/18/2012
Loved working with Mike and Janet Martinez! Very professional and knowledgeable couple. We have been searching for the perfect mountain getaway for years. Mike guided us to Buck Mountain in Wlikes County. What a hidden gem!!! He listened to what we wanted and delivered! Highly recommended 5/15/2012
Mike went above and beyond to help us in the sale of our property. I had relocated and was no longer able to maintain the property while it was on the market, but Mike looked after us and kept the property looking great. During difficult economic times, Mike was still able to find potential buyers for our commercial property and kept us posted on any and all contacts, providing helpful suggestions that got results. We are thankful to Mike and his wife for their hard work and diligence. I have recommended Mike to my father who is looking to sell a large commercial property as well.
We had a Wonderful experience with Mike as our realtor and would highly recommend him and his services to anyone that is in need. He was always available day or night for any help or questions that we had and so we always had an answer instantaneously. I always tell people that Mike doesn't let the grass grow under his feet and if they are wanting to move on something he is the person to get. Mike and Janet are wonderful people and not only did we find our dream house through their company, we also have made some new friends as well, them!!
We were very happy to have Mike Martinez work with us to sell our home. Mike scheduled all meetings and interactions at our convenience after work and on weekends. He provided us with outstanding advice about how to prepare our home for sale. He provided a profile on the house for people touring. He promptly returned all phone calls and had advertising in place as soon as walked out the door. He worked hard, illustrated a great understanding of contract details, negotiation etiquette and documentation. Our home was under contract in 7 days after listing. I am confident that the reason we were able to keep negotiations on track because of his tireless work ethic. We really appreciated Mike's calm reassurance and expert advice throughout the entire process. Mike was the outstanding professional we were looking for and having him work with us made a nerve-wracking negotiation a wonderful success.
Did I mention he sold our home in seven days?
I would recommend Mike Martinez to anyone who wants to sell their house. He tells you what you need to do to help you do that. Listen to what he says. He brings with him much experience and a desire to do his job well. He persevered when we thought things were hopeless. He also went above and beyond on more than one occasion. We had to move before our house actually sold. We also had to have a radon system put in before we could sell it. Mike was there to organize the installation of the system and made sure that he or one of his employees was there the entire time to oversee it. He checked on our house regularly for us and even left the porch light on for us when we were going to be coming in from out of state late one night. He made himself available at all times. If I did get his voice mail, he was very prompt about returning my call. If I had to sell another house, I 'd list it with Mike Martinez.
Over the years I have been involved in many real estate transactions, both as buyer and seller. I must say Mike is the most professional and organized of any agent I have dealt with. At every step of the way, he has gone above and beyond our expectations. Mike has a way of giving you those little "extras" that let you know he is really serious about serving his clients. We would definitely recommend Mike to others.
Dr. Philip Taylor & Millie Taylor
Mike was able to make our purchase happen in record time. We were able to close on our property in about a week, which is outstanding, considering we were in Ohio, the seller in Florida, and the property in North Carolina! I have bought 8 properties, and this was the fastest and smoothest transaction for property that I have ever been involved with. I highly recommend Mike, and would most certainly, use him again.
Mike and Janet were very helpful and attentive during the process of buying our 25 acre farm. They were also extremely timely with all communication and answer to any questions we had. Janet even reminded me about and issue that had been overlooked at closing and took care of it for us...10 weeks after the closing was complete! We were very pleased with all aspects of our experience and would have no hesitation in recommending North Carolina Mountain Investments. Hopefully, we won't need the services of a Realtor any time soon but if we do, we know who to call.
My sisters and I found ourselves with a home/land to sell after our mother passed away. Before she passed, Mike Martinez was the agent my mother told us to sign with..and because mother's know best we did. And did she ever..Mike and Janet were a God send and truly a blessing to us. Exceeding expectations along with unmatched professionalism, knowledge of the area and the market. Mike and Janet were a pleasure to work with and we would hands down only recommend North Carolina Mountain Investments to anyone and everyone. Thank you Mike and Janet!
Mike was very helpful to my wife and I when we were searching for a mountain home. He was always available when we had questions and did everything possible to make this process as easy as possible.
Mike Martinez and his wife Janet were a great pleasure to work with. They made the whole hunting and purchasing experience for a home very delightful and as stress free as possible. Every time we called them they would answer or respond immediately. No matter how many times we called them, how many questions we had, what time we called, they were always courteous and help full to the best of their knowledge. They never discouraged anything we wanted to look at even though they knew we wouldn't like it, they showed it to us anyway and of course suggested the best places. We were looking for a good neighborhood and good schools for our daughter and they helped us find it. They knew which home would be ours before we knew it, they knew exactly what we were looking for. They treated us like family. They told us the best places to stay at.During the buying process they took care of everything for us to have no worries. They were great with our daughter, Mike and her hit it off immediately because he treated her like an adult and like she was part of the decision making. They have great knowledge of the areas, schools, and more. They are very professional, and polite; we couldn't have asked for a better agent and better friends. Needless to say that we are now neighbors, and couldn't have asked for better neighbors. Mike is the only Realtor we will ever use, we recommend him to anyone and everyone. There is no doubt that he will exceed all of your expectations and you will never want to work with anyone else. We came up to NC from FL looking for a good agent and a home and found both, a home and lifelong friends, and our daughter has also found her two new best friends with their children. Best Realtor by ever
Working with Mike and Janet was such a blessing. They helped my Fiancé and I buy our first house and walked us through every part of it If we had any questions what so ever they were both there to assist in any way they could. I could not imagine the transaction going any smoother..I would most defiantly recommend Mike and Janet to anyone wanting the best experience possible with purchasing or selling a home.
Working with Mike and Janet was not only a pleasure it was a blessing. I had never heard of their real estate business, but from just looking at his website I knew he was someone I wanted my husband and myself to meet. I am so happy to say my intuition was so right on about him when he came to our property it was as if we had known him for years. By the time the December edition of real estate came out our property was sold. It was only a month he had found the perfect people looking for exactly what we had to offer. Which meant this left us without a house. So we sat with Mike and Janet told them what we wanted they showed us the house the thought we would be happy living in and they were right. Mike called the broker made an offer for us they accepted and so we had signed papers to sell our house and buy another house within 3 days.Mike goes above and beyond to sell your property and also to find you the perfect place you are looking for. After dealing with them I have told everyone I know what great people they are and I would never consider using anyone but them to sell my property. Thank you Mike and Janet and may God Bless you Both,
Mike and Janet Price
My wife and I were very fortunate to have come across Mike and Janet. If I had to write the meaning of a professional realtor, Mike and Janet wourld be the answer. I have been in business for over 20 years and know what it takes to be a professional. Mike's and Janet's dedication to their business is what made our experience of buying a cabin in the North Carolina Mountains a memorable one. We think they make an "ALL STAR TEAM." Thank you for all the things you did for us.
I am not usually a gusher, but I cannot say enough good things about Mike Martinez and his wife. They are absolutely awesome! Mike helped my husband and I find a "dream come true" mountain home and they made it fun, easy and hassle-free. I am not kidding! Mike did a great job and even helped us find a property that he wasn't listing himself. He and Janet took care of numerous details in a fast, efficient and very professional manner. It is readily apparent that Mike is very passionate about his work and possesses the knowledge and networking ability to make things happen for his clients. We live four hours away from where we bought the house. Mike and Janet not only helped us find the house and get a GREAT price, but also took care of all the things needing to be done before you move into a new home. They are an incredible, extremely impressive team and I would recommend them to anyone and everyone! We had a remarkably great experience working with the Martinez' and will always appreciate what they did for us!!
Mike and Janet always returned our phone calls quickly. They listened to our needs and knew the type of property we were looking for and did the research before we came to town. They were professional and helpful in all areas. We have already recommended them to people and would do so again. They also made contact with other professionals that we needed to meet with after the purchase of the property. Mike made sure we were comfortable during our stay in Wilkesboro by recommending a great hotel and places to eat or shop. Mike made us feel like we were his best customer, even though our purchase was somewhat small.
Mike Martinez was great to work with. He helped us find exactly what we wanted. He consistently went the extra mile to assist us throughout the buying process. Mike is always available to answer questions and his expert knowledge of real estate and the area were extremely helpful, especially as we were purchasing land from out of town. I would highly recommend Mike Martinez.
I've worked with Mike for the last 4 years and he is always willing to go the extra mile to get things done. I would recommend him to anyone wanting to buy or sell real estate. He sold two houses for us.
We have worked with Mike for many years and are always satisfied. He is highly professional and will continue to work with him in years to come.
Mike and his staff worked very hard to sale our home. This is a tuff market to sell a home in. Our house sold because Mike was working when many other agents were sitting around waiting for the homes to sell themselves. He is honest and professional. Also, Mike's wife Janet worked hard to comfort us during stressful times, and to make sure that all transactions were handled smoothly and efficiently. We are very grateful for North Carolina Mountain Investments! We highly recommend that you hire them to sell your home.

Mike is a true gentleman that was very detailed throughout the process. I have dealt with a lot of different realtors in the past and none of them took care of me the way that Mike did.

Hello Mike and Janet
Just want to tell you how grateful and thankful I am, for all you did to help my parents and being patient since we all had to wait for so long to close. My parents told us how nice the house looks and they are busy decorating. Also you sending the cleaning lady and helping with the furniture. Hope to meet you when I do come home again.
Posted by Keith
Mike was professional in every sense of the word. He was able to secure a quick buyer for our property at almost asking price and no concessions. We couldn't ask for a better realtor and have made sure our friends and neighbors know he's our recommendation should they ever need help selling property. Thanks, Mike!

For more than two years my wife and I have been trying to buy land, a house even an old farm in the Blue Ridge area of North Carolina. We looked at a 100 year old farmhouse, acreage to build on, lots and both foreclosed and sold by owner type sales. Nothing seemed to work and a deal was never made. We tried to take advantage of the lower price in foreclosures but either the bank or the realtor would not work with us.
That is until we found some acreage that had been foreclosed on and being offered by North Carolina Mountain Investments, LLC, Mike Martinez. I sent an e-mail to Mike on a Sunday right after dinner and received one back right away with a message, ?call me, I?ll be up until 10PM?. I called Mike and he worked with both the bank and ourselves to make us now the proud owners of five acres in Alleghany County, NC. It was one week and a day from the time we saw his listing until the closing, Mike and Janet you are outstanding, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Mike Martinez is a super agent. Never have I seen someone who will go the extra mile to help you find what you are looking for followed up with help to make it happen. This man never lets anyone else he may be working with interfere with his attention to you the client. In a short time with us Mike seem to know what we really wanted to look. He was willing to let us view a few chosen properties so once we saw suggestions based on our discussions we would know why they were prime property and location. Again we thank Mike for making a dream come true. Did we mention he found time to revisit the property a number of times while we made up our mind...

Patient, thorough, and always willing to go the extra mile. Mike took on a challenging piece of real estate that was truly a diamond in the rough and worked to find the right buyer without asking us to compromise and when he found that buyer, he made sure that it went to close quickly and successfully.…
Dedicated real estate professionals focused on serving your needs. Innovative approach. Very proactive. Good communication. Very respectful and professional.
Mona & I want you to know we think you are awesome! We had an idea of what we wanted to look for but you seemed to zero in on our interest & found us our dream place. Best of all, you humored us and showed us properties we had found online you felt didn't fit our needs but allowed us to see them and get those out of our system. You have quite the busy schedule and yet you never let that interfere with making Mona & I feel we were the most important client you served. You are a person that not only knows his business but have a feel for who you are working for and treat them as a friend. You went the extra mile and we will never forget that. We don't feel there is any better agent in the area to work with.
Again Thanks, Mona & Rick
We weren't even looking when we stumbled upon one of Mike's listings. We had a unique closing that took place rapidly, less than 30 days. A last second glitch that was uncovered by title search almost de-railed our closing but Mike went way out of his way to get the issue handled and our closing proceeded as scheduled. He was very knowledgeable about the area and even helped with phone numbers of reputable contractors to improve our amazing mountain getaway. If we ever sell it, Mike is the guy! He was sharp and spot-on with everything, but never pushy in the least. A laid-back professional all the way with top-notch staff (thanks Janet!).…

Dear Mike & Janet, Thank you so much for your help in finding our home, helping us get settled here in Wilkesboro and for the free house cleaning. We have appreciated your thoughtfulness so much!

Mike was wonderful! Living in Raleigh and looking for that perfect mountain cabin tough but Mike found our dream place and we could not be more happy! Thanks Mike and Janet!

Mike is as good as they come. I've worked with numerous realtors over the years. None of them have ever given me a fraction of the time or commitment to service as Mike Martinez has. Whenever you call him if he doesn't answer right then you can count on a call back usually within 30 minutes or less. That's what I call EXCELLENT SERVICE. His knowledge of the market and the right price to market and SELL your property is another strong asset. You may not always like what he has to say but he's trying to be totally honest and remove all the fluff so many other realtors like to leave in. I could always count on feedback from Mike after showing my home, usually within a few hours or less afterwards. If he doesn't get what he needs from the other realtors involved he's always on top of it and will get you the information you expect and deserve. From the time a purchase contract was signed Mike took charge and made all necessary calls and setup all the appointments to make sure things stayed on schedule. Thanks again for a wonderful experience and I will definitely use Mike again in the future.
4/27/2017 Kenny L. Woodie
Can't say enough wonderful thing about Mike and Janet Martinez. They were professional, courteous, honest, and knowledgeable. They worked hard to get the best deal for us. If we ever need a realtor again, we will definitely use their services.

I have bought several homes in my time, but this was my first out of state experience. Talk about smooth and easy, I literally did nothing, Mr and Mrs Martinez did everything in a way that made made buying my new property easier than ordering lunch for my kids.

Mike and Janet Martinez were great to work with; very good follow up re questions/process. Would definitely contact them in the event we would need to sell property in Wilkes County.
If you are in the market to buy a house (or mountain cabin in our case) in the greater Wilkesboro area I would highly recommend Mike Martinez as an agent. He quickly assessed what we were looking for and in quick order found the perfect home for us. He provided many resources for us (contractors, pest control, etc) that helped make the transition easy. Communications were excellent and he was very responsive. We could not ask for a better experience.

We have bought two properties and sold one with Mike as our realtor. You cannot find a harder working individual. He is always available and working for you.

We had a very positive experience with Mike and Janet. They guided us in market conditions and the pricing of our mountain get-away. It sold immediately and closed in a month, without issue. Mike and Janet are very knowledgeable and experienced. We would recommend them to any buyer or seller in the area! D. Rock 12/18/17
This is the 2nd house Mike has sold for us in record time. It was on the market for around a week and he had a signed contract for us. The person that comes and takes the property photos really does an exceptional job. Mike offers suggestions on things that should be done so the property will sell more quickly. He stayed in contact with us the whole time and was readily available to answer any questions we had. We have even recommended him to our daughter, who is in the process of trying to find a house for her family. C. Jones 11/16/2017
Mike and Janet are an absolutely terrific team. We had had our home for sale with another group for almost two years. We decided to switch to Mike and had a showing within the first week and it was sold in less than six months. Service is impeccable! Attention to detail is phenomenal. The quality of pictures, video, and wording were substantially superior. In every way imaginable I would recommend them to list a home. On the flip side, we then purchased a home with their assistance as well. The same attributes applied here as well. Negotiated wonderfully and got us a great deal with several perks as well. Listening to him really helped us out. Would not use anyone else to sell or to buy a home in Wilkes. Hands down the best!! T. Van Noy 11/14/2017
Mike was easy to work with. He and Janet were quick to assist with all our needs. They helped with contractors, bank, and attorney issues. Handling all with speed and professionalism. I highly recommend them for all you realty needs. D. Barker 9/26/2017
These are wonderful people who do a wonderful and honest job! I would gladly work with them again and would recommend them to others looking to sell or buy a home. L. Watkins 9/19/2017
Mike and Janet were instrumental in our getting our new house. Between appointments with surveyors and contractors to their patience with long distance buyers, they worked together to help us to make our ideas a reality. The personal touches in communication helped the transactions become a "win win" for everyone. Thank you! M. Hydock 8/16/2017
We highly recommend the team of Mike and Janet Martinez. Our real estate purchase experience could not have been more smooth and successful, and we credit that to their experience, professionalism and competence. They were with us through every step of the transaction, and Mikeâ€™s negotiation skills are top-notch; he achieved a deal for us that was much better than weâ€™d hoped for. The experience was enhanced by their deep knowledge of, and connections with, local places and people. Mike and Janet also went â€œabove and beyondâ€ to ensure that all the myriad details at and after closing were taken care of, to an extent weâ€™d never seen before in prior home purchases. Working with them brought us not only a wonderful new house but personal enjoyment, as well. --PJ and Amy Childress-Obenauf
Working with Mike was a pleasure and we feel fortunate to have found him mainly through reading reviews such as this. As the buyer, Mike represented us as well as the seller and we feel that the deal he brokered was fair for all parties involved. We bought our new dream home in NC from across the country and the process was flawless not just because Mike is on top of things but also because of his dedicated wife Janet who doesn't let anything slip through the cracks, these two are an awesome representation of teamwork. Whether buyer or seller, Mike has set a new baseline for us of what an agent should be. We have had agents in the past whom we thought were good but realize now that things can run smoothly and without anxiety if coordinated correctly, I now cannot imagine any of these agents working on a deal from across the country. We will not hesitate to use Mike (and Janet!) again or to recommend him to any of our friends as these two are the best. We also hope to stay in touch with them because they are not just good with real estate but also good people and someone that we would be proud to call friends. D. Boling 7/1/2017
Mike and Janet Martinez were excellent in helping us find a home and the follow up was exceptional. We were in a pinch after selling our home and having trouble getting help. They provided many alternatives, were willing to listen and understand our needs, and understood the timeliness of working quickly to get us in a home that fit our family. N. Greer 6/8/2017
