Sold a Single Family home in 2008 for approximately $425K in Blossom Valley, San Jose
Rene is an amazing Realtor. We were lucky to find him 5 years ago when we were looking for our home.  In the last 3 months he has also helped up sell and purchase a new home. He is very easy going, knowledgeable, and reliable.  Rene attended every meeting, signing, and walk through. He communicated with us about all of the processes and kept us informed through both the sell and purchase. He provided excellent guidance and support throughout. He was so involved that our 3 year old would pretend she was on the phone to Rene and still asks about him. Our buyer’s realtor even thanked us for “using such a professional Realtor”.  We will continue to work with Rene with all of our home sells and purchases.

Bought a Condo home in Los Gatos, CA.

I've known Rene since 2005 when he worked with me to find the condo that I bought. He was very patient and reliable. He has worked in real estate for a number of years and knows the area well. When I had a last-minute glitch with my bank which I thought had approved me for a loan, he immediately got a first-rate mortgage broker to work with me so that everything went smoothly. He is a real professional.

Bought a home in San Jose, CA.
Rene Marinez is very professional. He understands the real estate business very well. He listens very carefully to the clients wishes, needs and desires. He makes his client feel very comfortable, important and at ease. He is very open, forthright and honest about the particular piece of propertythat he is showing. He has done his "homework" about the property, and is able to answer any and all questions with full knowledge about the house he is presenting to the client. When I purchased my current condominium with Mr. Martinez' assistance, I felt like I was in good, professional hands, and that all would go well throughout the entire negotiation and purchase, as indeed it did. I was extremely satisfied with the whole process, and have, and would, without reservation, recommend Mr. Martinez to potential clients. Joseph R. Coleman

Sold a Single Family home in 2006 for approximately $800K in Cambrian Park, San Jose, CA.
In 2006, we looked at many homes and Rene's patience was excellent. We found a home in a great neighborhood and we were very happy with the outcome. In the spring of 2013, we sold our home and Rene was there again to handle the transaction. He made recommendations on improvements which turned out to be successful in the selling process. Once again, we were very happy with the outcome. I would highly recommend Rene to anyone who is either buying or selling a home.
..I thought you should know what a terrific job Rene did for me. I had to do a 1031 exchange and Rene did an excellent job in getting it done in the time frame needed. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a good realtor.
