What can I say, we think the world of Tony and his team and wouldn't use anyone else for real estate! Tony helped us buy our first place which we kept for almost a decade. Then when we decided to relocate to a town home, Tony was our first phone call. I cannot begin to tell you how much I trust this guy when it comes to making the biggest purchase of our lives! He is a great listener, extremely diplomatic, a wonderful negotiator, and most importantly, he is very, very ethical. I deeply appreciate this quality in a real estate agent as many of them are total scum bags and just out to make a buck. I never once questioned that Tony wasn't doing something for our benefit that was also the "right" thing to do. I also felt like I could ask him anything at all regarding the purchase of our new place, and he would respond with honesty and kindness. He somehow manages to extricate himself from the stress of buying and selling a home, and gives off an attitude of calmness and confidence. I know that when I am struggling with something regarding a transaction, Tony will take over and do what he does best. In the end, we sold our house for significantly more than list price, and purchased a beautiful town house that we are thrilled about. Thank you so much Tony and the Stellar Properties team!!

Tony, Thanks for taking the time and effort to write such a lovely commentary…you are doing a terrific job as a buyer agent for your buyers. If anything will sway the sellers, this is it…Spot on, I could not have done it better. I hope we can do this deal…and others...in the future.

Tony works wonders. When my then-fiancé and I met with Tony, neither of us had ever gone house hunting. Like most first-time home buyers, we had an idea of what we wanted in a neighborhood and town. We had our budget and our “must haves.” We conveyed all of this to Tony. My first impression of Tony was how well he listened. He didn’t interrupt us when we said we wanted this or that in our first home. He didn’t tell us any specific communities or features in a home were impossible for us. He took the time to listen to what our “ideal” home and neighborhood meant to us. After a few of these conversations,Tony hit the pavement and quickly came back with four homes for us to look at. If memory serves me correctly, we asked Tony on a Tuesday, and we were touring homes that same Saturday. We fell in love with the second home we saw. When we told Tony “this is it,” he went to bat for us. We felt the seller was asking too much, even considering the great location and potential for the home. We asked Tony if it was reasonable to counter the list price, and he agreed it would be wise for us to do so. At one point, the sellers said they also had “another very serious offer.” Skeptical, I asked Tony if this happens a lot, and if it does, is it typical that the seller or listing agent will bluff to sell quicker. Tony said it has happened before, but in an area like Boulder County, word would get out and no one would work with a listing agent like that moving forward. His candidness and honesty stood out throughout the entire process. After a bit more back and forth, we were able to close on our house at a price within our budget, and we couldn’t be happier! Now, I’d be doing Tony a giant disservice if I left out one important fact: Tony was helping us hunt for a home only a few months before our wedding. Needless to say, we had a lot on our plate, but owning a home together as we began married life was very important to us. Tony understood this. He worked with us during our odd hours, oftentimes after we were already burnt out with wedding planning. We still have yet to host a housewarming party, but when we do, we will happily invite our friend and realtor, Tony, to share in the celebration. We couldn’t have done it without Tony.

We recently had the pleasure of working with Tony and Stellar Properties when buying our first home. Not only did Tony have incredible insights into the Boulder County market, he also seemed to know what we were looking for more than we did ourselves! Tony consistently went above and beyond, even taking a commission cut to ensure the deal went through when road blocks popped up 24 hrs before closing. I highly recommend Tony to anyone looking to buy or sell their home and am more than happy to discuss my experience in more detail.

Tony's attention to detail and negotiating skills really set him apart as one of the top Realtors around. It is so refreshing to have such professionalism, communication and knowledge on your side of a real estate transaction. He and his team are on top of their game and are among the best in the local real estate community.

Our parents recently relocated from Houston, Texas and had very special needs in finding a home in Colorado. Tony listened, took their needs to a rather tight market, and found the perfect home for them. What amazed me was not only his attention to their needs, but his expertise at negotiating a great deal for them. Tony is a great realtor for anyone, including investors. He has my highest regard.

Tony sold my home in Boulder, CO in 2012. His advice on how to market the home (timing, pricing, presentation, etc.) was invaluable and his negotiation skills resulted in a contract to purchase within days of listing and within a single percent of asking price. The sale closed on time, with any issues that popped up being well managed by Tony along the way. I would highly recommend Tony as a listing agent. He knows how to deliver results.
Tony is one of the most high integrity people that I know, and it was a real pleasure to have him help sell our home. We had a tenant living at the property while it was on the market and Tony was very respectful of the fact that this was her home and made sure to arrange showings around her schedule. We had a great experience with Tony and would highly recommend him.

Tony helped us sell our home of 25 years; he was caring, sensitive, and competent - I highly recommend him! We were apprehensive about the process, but he made it happen quickly, efficiently, and to our benefit financially.

Tony succeeded in getting our rental property sold under some rather tough circumstances. He was very diligent yet sensitive to our needs. We were very happy with his service.
Area Professional Liaison/ Assistant Area Professional Liaison
Tony is wonderful to work with! He was really helpful with trying to really understand what we were looking for, not ever trying to offer us more house than we wanted. He was very patient with us in the process and very laid-back, never pushy. When we went under contract he was very reliable with handling all the details. I hope we are in our house for a long, long time but would happily use Tony again if we are ever looking for another house.
Blogger/Social Media Manager at Boulder Families
I highly recommend Tony! We came to Tony with a vague idea of what we wanted in a new home. He was patient and supportive, but not pushy, as we moved through the process of finding the right fit. I like to say I took Tony to some of the most "interesting" homes in Boulder, but at no point did I feel he was not available or willing take us to houses all across the spectrum. During our home purchasing process we ran into difficult situations and Tony was always always there with solid, creative solutions. Thanks, Tony for helping us get into our new home!

Tony helped me in the process of moving to the Boulder area from out of state and was extremely helpful in the process. Moving from out of state is always a tough venture but Tony did everything he could to make the move as fast and smooth as possible. This included helping us search for a rental unit while we looked for a new house, recommended local movers to help in the process, gave us detailed information regarding the area and what markets to steer towards, and helping us find the house of our dreams. My wife and I could not have been happier with Tony during the process and will recommend and use him for years to come.
Servant to the real estate community. Helping home owners sell for 3% more. Luxury to mid to investor. Selling made easy. Tony really goes the extra mile for his real estate clients.

I highly recommend Tony as a personable, punctual and reliable real estate agent. Tony was my buying agent for the 2 homes I bought in 2008 and 2012. He was dedicated to finding me a home. He put in extra time and worked late when there were complications during the contract period. I recommend him as a great real estate agent in the Boulder area.

Tony Worked tirelessly to find the right first house for my daughter in a very tough market. I feel Tony has the highest of integrity and I have a great deal of respect for the way he handled a very inexperienced first-time-home-buyer.

Owner/Manager at A-Pro Home Inspection Services and Owner
Over the past few years, Tony and I have had many opportunities to work together on real estate transactions. Tony has either been a Buyer's Realtor or a Seller's Realtor and I a home inspector working on behalf of a client. On every occasion I've had the pleasure of working with Tony, I find him to be a person of great intergrity, professionalism, superbly knowledgable of the local real estate, of having a great rapport with his Client, and overall, a great person to know. He is patient, realistic, listen to the needs of his Client, and understands how to advise someone with the "next steps". I enjoy every time I get a chance to work with Tony. Due to the nature of my business (home inspection), I come across and know a lot of Realtors or Real Estate Agents. I've seen many styles of business and personalities and have worked with many over the years. I consider Tony Martinez a top-notch Realtor in Boulder County and thoroughly enjoy working with him. If anyone ever has the opportunity to work with Tony when buying or selling a home, it would be a true priviledge to do so and to get to know him.

How much can I say about Tony? We hired Tony based on a referral in 2004 and needed some 'magic' to happen quickly to sell two condominiums. Not only did Tony sell both of our units within 6 weeks of hiring him, but they were the only two units to sell(out of 12) that year! His integrity, customer service and creativity were top notch and to work with Tony is to become a friend of Tony's. I would recommend him anytime to anyone that wants positive results. He's your realtor.

Tony has been one of the best mentors of my career. He is an incredible manager with an ability to trust in and delegate to his employees and to guide and lead when needed. I've learned so much from Tony and it's been a joy to contribute to his business over the years. I am proud to call him not only a mentor, but a friend. As a real estate broker, Tony is highly skilled. He is an amazing negotiator with a unique ability to strike a balance between working fervently for his clients and demonstrating respect and integrity with all sides. He helped me buy my first home and during difficult negotiations, he made the deal come together; I couldn't have done it without him. He is truly a man of integrity, creativity, skill and empathy. I highly recommend Tony to anyone working in the industry and also to potential clients.

I had been very happy with Steller Properties services when I sold my home a few years ago and when it came time for my elderly mother to sell her home I recommended Tony. This home sale was an emotional major life event for my mother which Tony handled with professionalism and compassion. My mother now truly considers Tony a friend. I would highly recommend Tony for working with an aging parent.
Owner, Beth Photography
Tony hired me to photograph the homes he was selling. Every single time I went into a home, and the owners were there, they raved about how wonderful Tony was to work with. They couldn't say enough great things about how he really cared about them, really listened to them and in the end, really helped them. I must also say that he must have a particular magic in recruiting top notch clients. Everyone of them I had the privilege to meet, I ended up loving. He just has that certain something that people really trust. I would recommend Tony to anyone I know who is selling/buying a house.
Agent, Ryan W. Slaughter Agency, Inc
Tony helped my beautiful wife an I find our very first, and perhaps, our last property. The property is that nice. He helped us navigate the areas we wanted to consider, with the criteria he dillegently acquired from us, icluding price points. His availability to answer questions, breadth of real estate experience, friendly outreach and approach was unmatchable. His negotiation ability, when we were presented with a few conflicts is remarkeable, and I could have not been more pleased. He is very impressive. If you are looking to by, sell, invest, or know someone who needs help, send them to Tony. He is the best there is.

Thanks Tony, AJ and everyone at Stellar Properties.

We bought our first house using Tony as our real-estate agent. Believe me, I interviewed tons of agents and initially trusted no one. Tony really proved me wrong very quickly. He immediately showed me the honesty and integrity I never thought I'd find in a real estate agent. He was always realistic, always up front, and always had a great sense of humor. I never received a phony answer to any of my questions. Not only that, but he took time out of his weekends to show us as many houses as we wanted, at the pace we wanted to go. He really made the home buying process about "us" and actually made it quite enjoyable, too! In the end, he negotiated a great deal that we couldn't pass up. We love our house, and Tony is one of the reasons we are so proud to call it "home." We plan on using Tony in the future and highly recommend his work.

Simply put, Tony Martinez and Stellar Properties blew our socks off! In the most challenging and difficult of situations, Tony sold our two Boulder properties within 6 weeks of taking over our contract after they sat on the market with little activity for ten months under another Realtor. Tony utilized high-level communication and negotiation, expert sales and marketing, and impressive attention to detail and creativity to close the deals. He left no stone unturned to meet our needs and did so with a drive not only to provide the utmost customer service but to demonstrate the integrity and value of Stellar Properties' offerings. I highly, highly recommend Stellar Properties to anyone buying or selling a home!

Tony is an elite real estate agent and innovative businessman. As an out of state buyer, I was referred to him through a mutual acquaintance who was working as a contractor at my place of employment. In my interview process of him and his recommended associates I came away impressed with the network he had assembled to support his clients through the entire real estate buying process. Without the help of Tony and his associates, the purchase of my investment property would not have been the success that it is. To this day I keep in periodic contact with him on real estate related matters and he always promptly replies to my inquiries with helpful information. Since the time of my purchase I have seen him grow his business, constantly improving it to serve his clients better. When I purchase or sell my next property I will assuredly use Tony and his agency.
