Tell Us Your Story

We have now used Bobby on 3 real estate transactions.

The first one he helped us on was a great Carlsbad that had great appreciation. He helped us sell that one in 2016. He did a great job of keeping us in formed, marketing the property and getting it sold. We've been bought our next house in Encinitas and were very happy with the patience he and his team had while we looked for several months for that perfect property. He doesn't care how long it takes, he just wants it to be the right property for you. We are busy doctors so we were very happy with the communication by texting that he and his team would do. He would even respond after hours which was great. He was always there to answer questions and look out for our best interest. We would highly recommend him and his team. "

Bobby Martins did an impeccable job representing me in the sale of my Rancho Santa Fe home, a home I was very fond of.

He helped my ex-wife and I to successfully navigate some difficult decisions, and did a fantastic job showcasing the property via modern methods that highlighted the opportunity to the most likely buyers, while at the same time creating a sense of caché. Bobby priced the property properly, and negotiated skillfully. At the same time, he knew when not to push back. We felt satisfied with the outcome, and we were able to sell in a timely fashion. Thank you Bobby! PS: Thanks for all the open-house leftover cookies. Yum.

Bobby & his Team were incredible to work with.

We had been reluctant over the years to purchase our first home because we were fearful of the process and honestly, didn't think we could afford much buying in San Diego. After having conversations with Bobby, he put us immediately at ease and gave us the confidence during the buying process. His Team never once complained or had any sort of negative response to ALL the homes I wanted to view - they were willing to show anything and everything that interested me. At the end of the day the home we bought was not even one we chose to view, but was one that Bobby's Team recommended we view! Not only did we buy a home in San Diego, we bought a BRAND NEW home. Talk about dreams coming true!!! I highly recommend Bobby & The Martins Group for any real estate needs. I look forward to one day using them again! Thank you Martin's Team!!

The Noble Family

I have known Bobby for over 10 years now and he has helped many many friends buy and sell homes.

He is considered one of the best agents in San Diego. That's why I had no problem referring him to my brother-in-law to buy a new home this year. Bobby is very personable and tech savvy so he makes the whole process easy and fun. I would highly recommend his services to anyone looking for an honest agent who will take great care of your needs.

"Jeff Smith was our realtor when we bought our house in the San Diego area in 1996. Having bought and sold several houses through the years (we were a military family) I have had experience with a number of real estate agents. Jeff, by far was the best. He showed integrity,. honesty, an extensive knowledge of the area and the current market. Friends, as well as my son, used Jeff as their agent (several times - as buyers and sellers) and couldn't have been more pleased. When we sold our house in 2017, Jeff, of course, was our listing agent, and remains a friend today. What I always appreciated most about Jeff was his honesty, enthusiasm and perseverance. He will actively be involved with the transaction from start to finish. You can't find a better real estate agent in the San Diego area!"

"I recently had the pleasure of working with Move Up San Diego and their outstanding real estate broker, Bobby Martins, on my property purchase in Encinitas, California. I was first referred to Bobby to sell a home I owned in Chula Vista which he helped me sell for top dollar. After selling, I decided to rent for a little bit to see if the market would cool. I was not happy about paying rent, especially at these inflated prices. Bobby suggested we keep an eye out for a home and just like that, the right home came available. We were able to get a fair price considering the market we are in.I highly recommend Move Up San Diego to anyone looking to buy or sell. Their expertise, dedication, and personalized approach set them apart from the rest. Whether you're a first-time buyer or a seasoned investor, Bobby, Tricia and the entire team at Move Up San Diego will undoubtedly exceed your expectations. Thank you, Bobby, and Move Up San Diego, for making this a VERY positive experience. You have my highest recommendation, and I look forward to working with you again in the future!"

"A year back we had attended a home buying seminar that Move Up was a part of, mingled with a few people, but we weren't ready just yet at the time. Fast forward to this year in March, it was as if Rachel knew we were looking and called us at the most opportune moment. We had little knowledge of the home buying process, but Rachel made everything so crystal clear and helped us along this big change in our lives.We had a slightly fast-paced timeline as we were trying to take advantage of the CalHFA opportunity, and Rachel was very accommodating to meet at various open houses, setting up appointments, and discussing daily concerns at different times of the day. Even though we weren't able to find a home before the funds were gone, she was very determined to help us reach that goal and was very flexible with her schedule which we appreciated so much.Once we did lock-in on a potential home, she took every initiative to contact the seller's agent, find out additional important details, and kept us in the loop about everything to help us make the most informed decision. We very much appreciated our relationship with Rachel as our realtor, as it was the perfect balance of structured guidance but not overstepping any boundaries. Her demeanor was always very kind and caring, but she always had our best interests in mind, so when a situation called for us to hold our ground or make a difficult decision, she was there to support us in every way possible.We will absolutely recommend Rachel and Move Up to our friends when they are looking to buy homes. It was a scary process turned steady, and Rachel was amazing to work with for our first time home buying experience. Hopefully when we look to move into a bigger home, we can find this team again!"

"After interviewing 6 Realtors I hired Bobby to help me with selling my property due to the fact he was quite knowledgeable AND also because he was the ONLY one to anticipate my particular needs that required thinking "outside the box." He quickly offered solutions/options explaining how smooth it could be done and gave me peace of mind. Because of his experience and knowledge he completely took the stress out of selling my home! His honesty, integrity, thoroughness in covering all bases and confidence put all parties involved with the sale at ease. Also, he actually encouraged me to list the property for more money than I was suggesting. Bobby saved me quite a bit of money in unneeded repairs and improvements while other realtors were telling me to spend tens of thousands of dollars on the property in order to list for sale. Bobby positioned the sale to sell quickly and sold it in "as is" condition and for 65,000 more than we listed. That amount was far above the dollar amount other Realtors advised me to list. More importantly along with the experience of a successful easy sale is the fact that Bobby ALWAYS returned my calls promptly and was ready, willing and able to answer any and all of my questions! To say it was a pleasure to work with him seems like an understatement! I highly recommend his services to anyone looking for the VERY BEST in a Realtor service as he truly cares about his clients!"

"I hired Bobby to sell a seven unit complex that I owned. He did an excellent job from start to finish making sure I was able to get top dollar for my property. He even connected me with a fantastic realtor in a different state who helped complete a 1031 exchange. Bobby was responsive, professional, and very knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend his services to anyone looking for a quality realtor, and I wouldn't hesitate to reach out to him again for future needs."

"Bobby and his team are 5 stars all the way. I have worked with him on a number of sales and Bobby is a true asset to have when selling a home. He has the best balance of experience and professionalism. There were many buyers interested in our home and we have always put the highest level of care and details to our homes. Bobby was there at every turn and kept our anxieties low and our minds clear of worry. I recommend Bobby and his team to all our friends and family. You would be lucky to have him on your side when selling your home."
