"Jay Martinez and the JM Team just ranked #1 for first quarter 2018 at Pacific Union's Sunset Strip office. Our team, one of the youngest in the industry, has rapidly risen to the top through its commitment to understanding its clients and their LONG TERM goals. Our team has the rare ability to put together the right plan for success, whether it be preparing your home strategically for a successful sale at the highest possible price or helping you find and negotiate your next dream home maximizing your chances winning in LA's competitive market. Our past clients have repeatedly praised us for providing results where other agents had failed (we partly specialize in re-listing properties and getting them sold.) Our success at delivering results is deeply rooted in our commitment to "jumping" when our clients expect us before during and after the sale or purchase of your home. This commitment is really a declaration of how much we care for our clients' lives and their success in real estate - your home is our passion (JM Team's motto), and we want to be the resource you think of for all your real estate needs for life ( Selling, buying, remodeling, Refinancing, Buying/Selling out of state, you name it we have an extensive network in all these to help you.)

Jay's multi-faceted international background, business acumen and creative mindset make him a true forerunner in the industry. Before making the move to Los Angeles ten years ago, Jay lived and traveled over four continents, and speaks French and Spanish fluently. Prior to being invited to join Pacific Union international in 2014 (formerly John Aaroe Group,) he took on - early on in his real estate career - team leader roles at two top producing firms, upholding the utmost standards of communication and service for clients. Armed with a Bachelor’s of Business Administration in Marketing and Finance with a minor in Civil Engineering, Jay conducts a logical and calculated approach when analyzing properties and clients' needs, and understands the importance of providing a thorough and true market analysis to sellers and buyers in order to maximize their investment. His added technology background enables him to launch aggressive, multi-media and multi-platform marketing campaigns, to move properties fast in an even faster-moving real estate market. Jay’s emphasis on clear communication and always putting his client’s interest first are the staples which have grown his repeat business over the years." read less «

Jay Martinez & his team, came to us with a detailed proposal and roadmap to selling our townhome quickly and for an excellent price point. Once executed, their plan was executed and within days we had multiple offers all over asking price. With quick negotiation between buyer and seller, we had a price locked in and a sale imminent. Escrow was quick and closing a breeze mostly thanks to the electronic "docusign" site that accelerated the process and streamlined the transaction. Two thumbs up!

I fully recommend Jay and Gil for their real estate services. I am convinced that without them I would not have found my dream house and in such a timely fashion. I couldn't be more happy with their services, from our initial meeting to our many conversations and appointments in between they have been informed and strategic. They worked closely with me as a first-time buyer finding a property that fit my checklist and was within my price range. Their hard work and dedication allowed me to view properties I otherwise would have been unable to see as well as bring to my attention some properties I might have overlooked upon first glance. Lastly, their strategy upon closing worked effectively and got my offer accepted immediately. I am beyond thankful for their effort and support and look forward to having them over my new house for a housewarming party this summer.

Mark, Cristina and I would like to thank Jay Martinez for the exceptional job he did in helping us with the purchase of our new property at Wetherly Terrace in West Hollywood. We especially appreciate the dedication and hard work Jay did for us: negotiating the contract, finding us a good lender, securing an inspection and taking the time to go over all the details of getting us settled. Jay knows his market extremely well; he clearly takes pride in doing a good job. Once again, thanks for a job well done.

The JM Team was just wonderful from beginning to end! If you ever need any true real estate expertise and a real powerhouse in your corner - Jay and Gilbert are your guys! They have been there for us from beginning to end, responsive to a degree that went way beyond any call of duty (we were buying when we living overseas and we received responses to our questions at 2 am in the morning their time!). They are professional, courteous and just amazing to work with! A true pleasure with all the knowledge, local insights, support and assistance one can wish for. I couldn't think of anything they could have done better! I highly recommend their services and am confident that it would be hard to find anyone better! Thank you, guys!
