"Basically, they were AWESOME. Ricky and Brian would fill in for each other when busy and they both exceeded all of our expectations. They were fast to solve any of our obstacles and soothed our nerves. And, they know what to do to get home sold, FAST." - Marilee W.

"Our house was not selling and we did not understand why. Brian and his team gave us information we needed to make a few changes to the property and it sold in only a few weeks into the listing period. We have moved on, but should we ever need to list again, we will call Brian. He and his team know the market and what it takes to get a home sold!" - Kaelb & Chelsea A.

"Brian and his team did an excellent job selling our home during a very difficult time. We thought we were going to have to declare bankruptcy, but Brian and his team of experienced professionals stepped in and gave us outstanding results! We surely place him at the top of our 'Most Referred' list!" - Ashley and Greg H.

"We met Brian, when Ricky had a previous engagement. Brian was beyond kind and patient as we looked at one home after the other (on a very hot day) actually Brian met with us on a couple occasions and made the entire day a fun experience (all this while he was texting, calling and helping other clients) he made all this “work” look easy. Let’s face it; there is nothing simple about “extreme customer service”, especially when you are juggling 6 clients at time, answering questions, inspections, on each end! Brian didn’t miss a beat; he was completely dialed in to what we were after and the numerous people expecting his undivided attention?  Brian was as attentive to their expectations as well-always polite, good natured and savvy in his approach. This man is a true wonder! The best part, he is fun to be around, serious when it is called for but super happy and willing to go the extra mile. After reading his bio on line, I wish I could be more like Brian.  Along with his own family and responsibilities he does an enormous amount of work in the community - and has forever! We were fortunate in that we met the ladies in the office, they make the magic happen and work extremely hard (nights and weekends). You can feel the warm camaraderie which drives the Keller Williams team and it is rare to find this in any work environment. Thank you for the best in service we have ever encountered!" - Rebecca S.

" I really enjoyed The team aspect of the group. If one person could not answer a question on the spot another person on the team could. It truly felt like a team effort from the group. This approach is much more effective than a single agent by themselves. They had each others back which made me the seller feel very secure and confident in the transaction. Brian, Ricky, and Michelle are amazing at what they do. This was the 3rd home I have bought and sold with Brian and Ricky. I will never use anyone else." - Matt J.

"The Martell and O'Neal team are amazing! I know Brian and Ricky personally and their knowledge base of the industry and community is top notch. They are also extremely involved in the community and donate hours of their time to the City of Folsom and the Sweet Dreams Foundation. I would highly recommend their real estate team to buy or sell your home!" - Rick C.

"I have worked with Brian many times over the years. Having personally handled financing for many of his clients, I can say that he is very responsive and a great communicator throughout the entire process. He is a great real estate agent focused on doing everything he can to help his clients get into the home of their dreams. I have no reservations recommending him to anyone looking for a new home in the Folsom area!" - Randy M.

"Brian helped me and my wife close on our new house. This was my fourth real estate transaction and my first one in Folsom. For anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Folsom, I give Brian the strongest recommendation possible.  He was patient and knowledgeable with me because I ask a lot of questions.  He was encouraging because I was a little worried that our home offer may not be accepted. He was thorough because there are a lot of dollars at stake when you buy a house. We feel that Brian always had our best interest in mind as we went through the process. His local market knowledge and network of contacts is truly exceptional. If you want a strong partner as you enter the home buying process, I can't imagine a better agent than Brian Martell and his team. Plus he's just a overall good guy." -G.M.

"Brian did amazing at selling our house for us! We could not ask for a better agent! He knows Folsom very well and is very involved in the community. He's very professional, knowledgeable, and all around great guy who will make you feel comfortable and at peace in the midst of what can be a very stressful time of selling your home. We highly recommend him and his team." - Michelle D.

"Brian is very knowledgeable in the area he's definitely a guy to get advice from before you sell or buy" - Dmitriy V.

We had the best experience with our agent, Brian Martell! We couldn't ask for a better agent to represent us in selling our house. It was done very professionally and in the least amount of time we could ask for. Brian knows the Folsom area very well and is very involved in the community, making him a valuable asset to selling homes there. When getting our home prepared to sell and moving to another state in the process would normally be very stressful, Brian made it more calm and helped us through every step of the process. We highly recommend him and his team! - Michelle Darilek
