Buyers Robert and Theresa Cobb

Marty was identified by our agent in NY, and we were so fortunate to have found her! My wife and I had sold our home there within a week and needed to find a home in Venice, FL quickly. She accommodated us immediately and was an incredible agent. She was very professional, dependable, honest, and  an exceptional communicator. She exceeded our expectations and was stellar in providing us with support and recommendations all along the way. Her knowledge of the area and other resources cannot be beat. Highly recommended!!

Buyers Roberta and Mark Davis

We enjoyed working with Marty and found and bought the ideal home in a new development.  Exactly what we were seeking.  Marty helped us quickly see new, and older, homes in our price range.  And she offered useful information on local services.  Thank you, Marty, for all your help.


Seller Nancy Zarowin

Thank you, Marty, for not only being a consummate professional as a realtor but also a kind person. You were so well-organized and clear in answering my questions and so prompt in returning my calls, and you helped transform my struggle to sell my house into an opportunity.  I'm very grateful to you.  Should a friend ask me for a realtor recommendation, you'll be first on my list!


Buyers Sue and Wayne Miller

We are so grateful to have met and worked with Marty Haines; she is a real professional. She met us and really listened to what we wanted and needed. She kept in close touch with us and presented only qualified house options. We did not spend a lot of time looking at houses that did not match our wants and needs. Marty found our ideal home in record time and helped us submit a fair and competitive offer. It was accepted, and we are no longer “homeless.” Thank you, Marty for your professional and personal care.


Buyer Anne Jeanmonod

Marty was recommended by some friends. We were very lucky to have her help us with the purchase of our new home in Venice, FL. She was very knowledgeable about the Real Estate market. She provided us with in-depth information about the process and what we needed to do to complete it. Marty answered our many questions patiently and thoroughly. She is a true professional. Her friendly and pleasing personality took many of the stresses away from making this major purchase. We recommend Marty without any reservations. 


Buyer Cynthia Carver

   If you want to buy a home or sell,
   If you want someone you can trust and have it done right, 
   If you want someone to put you first and have your back, 
   I have only two words for you,
   Get her on your side,
   I know, because she was on mine.


Buyer Jerome M. Hubis

Thank you for all you did to did to arrange things while working with me from Pennsylvania.  You helped make it so easy to move through the process with me so far away.  I have several friends who will be looking for homes in that area in the coming years. They all want to come and visit. Some said they may move up there searching time after they come down and see that the area is as great as I have told them.  I've highly recommended them to have you as their realtor.  Certainly use my name and recommendation for future home buyers or sellers for your very professional help and knowledge of the realtor business.


Buyers Jim and Nancy Pappas

We have just had the pleasure of working with Marty Haines in the purchasing of our new home at Pelican Pointe in Venice.  Marty was our agent to help us find the house.  She sent us listings the moment they hit the market and was available to show us a home right away.  The place we bought was listed on a Monday afternoon.  We saw it that day at 4:00 and were putting in an offer the next morning.  Marty helped us with the entire process of the purchase and did all she could to facilitate it.  We did a mail-away closing which was new to us, and Marty handled it all for.  It went smoothly due to her diligence and attention to detail.  We wholeheartedly recommend Marty Haines to you as your Real Estate Agent.  She will be by your side throughout the adventure.


Seller Greg Malta

Marty Haines is an excellent realtor. She is a very knowledgeable, detail-oriented professional who makes certain you have all the information you require to make informed decisions. Being from out of country (Canada) there were many details (i.e. legal, accounting, etc.) to deal with. She professionally explained all the necessary terms in dealing with selling our family home in a very clear and concise manner. She always represented our interests, valued our opinion, and offered suggestions/ solutions to our needs. She dealt with our donation of our furnishing to needy charities in the community. We were fortunate to have Marty representing us; she lived in our community and is very knowledgeable and well-connected in the area …she sold the house within two days.!!!! I fully recommend Marty Haines, for all your real estate needs. Everyone at RE/MAX Alliance Group Venice, FL, office was there to assist every step of the deal.


Seller Jan Stinson

After we moved from North Port to Osprey, we were not certain what we were going to do with our North Port house. Although we got advice from numerous sources, Marty Haines provided us with the best perspective of the market and what our options really were. We came to the conclusion that we should sell the house and, once again, Marty Haines provided us with the best insight on current market conditions. We signed the listing agreement on Wednesday, she posted it to the MLS on Friday, and there were two offers by the following Monday. What more can you hope for in an agent?? We were extremely pleased with Marty's performance and her attention to details throughout the process and would highly recommend her.


Seller Trish Krukar

A family member of mine passed and we needed to sell a home in Florida while living in Colorado. Marty and her team were beyond helpful in not only the sale of the home but guiding us through the entire process of prepping the home to be sold. With her knowledge of the industry and endless list of  trustworthy contacts, we were able to do all of this quickly and seamlessly. We're grateful for Marty in that she took a lot of the stresses off of our shoulders and we would, without hesitation, recommend her to anyone we know in Southwest Florida looking for an excellent realtor.


Seller Lewis Family

Marty, I appreciate all you've done to make the sale of my dad's house simple and quick.  I know it's not a simple process to sell a house, especially from a distance and when dealing with multiple parties, but you pulled it off.  Clearly you know what you're doing, and I would recommend you and use your services again in a heartbeat!  Please pass along our thanks to your assistant, too!


Seller Natalie Van Kirk

My son and I were both very pleased with your time and service. You had things with the sale moving right along, and we appreciated that. You can be sure I would recommend you to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.


Buyer Sue Nee

When my husband John and I decided to relocate after retirement, Marty assisted us with house searches in Venice and Sarasota. She provided valuable insight into the area; this was helpful because we were not very familiar with either city. With her help we were able to zero in on a development and home that fully met our needs. We are now enjoying our retirement in Venice.


Buyers and Sellers Doyle and Michelle Piwniuk

We've consistently used Marty both to buy and sell property in the Venice area and appreciate her energy, professionalism, insight, and ability to not leave a stone unturned.  We know she works with our best interest in mind!


Seller Matt Burke

Marty Haines is relentless in her service to her clients! She knows her market very well and makes accurate listing recommendations accordingly. We didn't always want to hear what she had to say, but her marketing perspectives were typically accurate. She worked very closely with our family to bring all of her expertise to bear in closing our sale. She typically goes above and beyond the call of her responsibilities to work with her clients in achieving their listing/sale goals. I highly recommend Marty if you have a Florida property to sell, particularly in the greater Venice area.


Buyer Nancy Drew Sincock

I was connected to Marty Haines by a realtor from another state.  Marty led us to a great home in Florida, corresponding with two people who were over 2000 miles away from each other as well as our distance from our destination.  She got all the wants/wishes checked off our list and eased us through what can be a stressful process.  I highly recommend Marty for all your real estate needs.


Buyers Bob and Carolyn Scott

We are truly grateful for your guidance through the process as we purchased our beautiful winter retreat in the Venetian Golf and River Club. You came recommended by good friends, and we knew they would steer us right. You may certainly use our names in your marketing materials. We also appreciated the bits of other information you provided along the way to help us become acclimated to the area and to help in the move.


Buyers Harry and Rosemary Hubis

Marty, we would like to thank you for all the work that you have done to help us locate and move into our new home. We came from quite a distance and appreciated your help with all of the helpful tips for moving to Florida that we would not have thought of. Moving is a very stressful situation, and you helped keep us calm and focused on the process of looking for a home. Now that we have moved into our new home, we find that you still are quite an asset, as you continue to provide very helpful information on trusted local vendors. It is so helpful to maintain contact long after closing on the house. We will continue to recommend you to anyone and everyone that we meet. Thank you very much for all that you have done for us.


Seller Dana Scott

We moved to Venice six years ago, and while Marty was on vacation, she had a colleague show us around and help us find a lovely pool home. We did a lot of renovations, and 1.5 years ago sold it and moved into our current villa. Circumstances are such that we have to leave Paradise in Florida and move back to New England. Again, Marty helped us with the sale of our current home. It's not only Marty's business acumen and experience that makes her great -- she genuinely cares about finding the right home for the right client. i'm going to miss Marty not just professionally, but personally as well. Give her a call; she's fabulous.


Seller Buck Buckmaster

Thank you for selling the house!  I really appreciated your going above and beyond to close this complex deal.


Prospective Buyer Karen

We cannot thank you enough for all you did for us. We were looking for someone to enlighten us not only on all the financial implications of moving/buying property in Venice, but also the nuances of dog ownership, local amenities, etc. You are so knowledgeable and really have a knack for learning what your clients want very quickly. We are in good hands!


Prospective Buyer Charlene

Thank you for educating us about Venice and all that it has to offer. I enjoyed everyone I met and everything I did while I was in Florida. Thanks for your kindness and willingness to show us “northerners” just how wonderful Florida life could be.


 Buyers Terry and Debbie Gero

It was truly a pleasure working with Marty. Because of her due diligence she was able to find us a home quickly and exactly as what we wanted. She negotiated a price that was in our best interest. She is a true professional.


Laura Dorsey, Mortgage Loan Originator, Synovus Bank, Sarasota

I have worked with Marty Haines for years. The level of service that she provides to her clients is simply amazing. In a troubled industry -- when we run into any challenges along the way -- she meets them head on, with a willingness to do what it takes to get to the finish line! "Over and above the call of duty" does not even begin to describe Marty Haines! It is my pleasure to work with her and her clients.


Matthew Booker, President, Palm Island Electric, Venice

Marty has an upbeat "can do" attitude. I've found her advice to be most accurate and unbiased, without regard to her own personal outcome. I'd give Marty” two thumbs up” for the position of real estate agent.


Roxe Larain-Shaw, Broker Associate at CENTURY 21 C & L Real Estate

Marty is a great, well-rounded real estate agent. She is always on top of things with her education. She has great contacts in the Venice area, and she will always represent the customer very well.
