    Bought and sold a single family home in 2021 for approximately $250K in Farmington Hills, MI 48336.
    My husband and I entered into an unprecedented & brutal housing market while also having a very tight deadline to buy a new house and sell our current house. With only 3-4 houses on the market in a given week, our options were very limited. In general, we are risk adverse people, had we not put our trust and faith into Marty, we wouldn't have found a new home in the current market. Marty was extremely responsive and supportive throughout our house hunt journey. She was patient with us, when we became discouraged. She even got involved to smooth issues over with our mortgage loan officer, which in my opinion was going above and beyond as a realtor. She truly takes care of her clients and wants to ensure everything runs smooth from start to finish. During the inspection process, she waited the entire 3 hours and made notes of items that needed to be repaired. She somehow worked her magic and the sellers agreed to fix multiple items in the home (that we didn't even ask for), which in a seller's market, that's pretty incredible.

    After walking through several homes in a city that we preferred, she located a GEM of a house for us! Even though we were not looking outside of our preferred city, she opened up our eyes to other possibilities. During the offer process, she walked us through our options and ultimately explained to us what we needed to do, in order to get our offer accepted. Her solid advice paid off, because while there were 4 other offers on the house we wanted, ours was accepted!

    With a little faith, trust, and a bit of risk, while following her expert advice, we successfully found our forever home! I would highly recommend Marty to anyone who is looking for a new home or looking to sell their current home. She makes the impossible, possible. I cannot thank her enough!

    Thank you Kelly and Tyler for trusting me as your agent to get the job done. You are both wonderful clients to work with and I appreciate your business very much. Thanks again!

    Bought a home in 2020.
    Marty found in a condo exactly what I was looking for. She heard my wishes and my concerns, and stuck with me until the right place showed up. I appreciate Marty's passion for helping me to find the place to become my new home.

    Sold a single family home in 2019 for approximately $300K in Farmington Hills, MI 48335.
    Marty is not only a wonderfully competent agent, she became our friend. She helped us stage our home, point out repairs that would increase marketability. And it worked! We looked at nearly 50 homes (yes, we’re picky/crazy?!) and she was there to warn us of every pitfall from considering new locations to understanding disclosures, and through the dance of negotiation. Marty sold our house but she found us a home. Go with a pro, go with Marty Merrill!

    Bought and sold a single family home in 2019 for approximately $375K in Northville, MI 48167.
    Marty helped me and my husband both buy and sell our home, and she was fantastic every step of the way. She is both warm and professional, and she is highly responsive via text, email, and phone calls. I also found her to be very knowledgeable of the housing market, and I felt confident in accepting her guidance as we navigated the process of buying and selling.

    Bought and sold a home in 2018 in Detroit, MI 48226.
    Marty was very helpful, patient, and encouraging in helping me purchase my first home. She was easy to reach and always responded quickly. She was honestly and seemed to be really interested in making sure I was able to find what I was looking for.

    Sold a single family home in 2018 in Southfield, MI 48033.
    Some issues of detail were overlooked (ie adjacent lot) Overall Marty was hard-working honest and fun to work with. Have already recommended her to a neighbor.
    Response from Marty on 5/30/2019
    Unfortunately, the lender overlooked the fact that the adjacent lot could not be funded through the MSHDA program because it COULD be split off from the entire purchase. The adjacent (double) lot was mentioned in the first line of the listing as a feature of the home. Sorry if there was confusion.

    Bought a single family home in 2017 for approximately $100K in Westland, MI 48186.
    My husband & I were buying our 1st home. We were fearful and uncertain of the process. Marty was very caring, patient, and understanding. From start to finish, she was there to take all of my hysterical calls & texts. We had some major issues with our mortgage lender, and Marty was there to kick some butt on our behalf. She seriously knows her business. I would highly recommend her to any 1st time buyers, or anyone looking for a great negotiator!

    Sold a single family home in 2014 in West Bloomfield, MI 48324.
    Marty helped us buy a new home in 2014. Her negotiation skills were great, she got us significantly less than the asking price, plus a pontoon boat and some furniture that we asked for. She also sold our old house. She helped us decide what to fix up and what not to. She also helped stage the house and hired a professional photographer to take great looking pictures. The house sold quickly for a price we were happy with.

    Bought a single family home in 2016 for approximately $350K in Commerce, MI 48382.
    Marty was an excellent Agent. I had no idea where I wanted to live or how much I wanted to sped. Marty was very professional and very helpful in my search. I have worked with other Agents in the past, however, Marty exceeded my expectations! I would work with her again!
