What Our
Clients Are Saying

"Mark Martinho of Vabrato Real Estate is FANTASTIC! Despite many challenges, Mark took charge of the situation and followed through with great skill and professionalism. The house was part of my family estate and Mark understood what needed to be done to get it sold. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending the services of Mark Martinho at Vabrato Real Estate...."

"5 stars isn't high enough! Mark Martinho was the perfect real estate agent. My brother and I were selling a family home in San Carlos that was held in a trust and had been the family for over 50 years. We both live out of town. Mark orchestrated the entire re-model and staging. It was a huge job. He coordinated all of the workers, painters, floor people, haulers, and stagers. Mark has connections with people that do all of these things. We never had to lift a finger! Mark also has the knack for knowing exactly what needs to be..."

"I cannot say enough good things about Mark. He came recommended from an estate attorney that was helping my wife settle her Mom's estate. First, of the folks we considered, Mark provided BY FAR the most thorough and well researched proposal. His attention to detail and excellence continued through the entire process. We had a challenging situation where we needed to find a place for my wife's brother who was living in the house, not only did Mark help facilitate that process, he completely understood the family dynamic of selling a childhood home and the impact it has on the..."

- Jeff S.

"It would not be hyperbole to say that Mark made my life bearable. Because of all the events going on in my life, selling the family home of 50 plus years seemed daunting. Without Mark to guide me through the process, I would still be working on the sale of the house. Mark communicated very well with all the parties involved in our Trust. His efforts were transparent. Nothing came as a surprise. He listened to my concerns and we had real communication about my options. In the end he cleaned up the home, made it very presentable and sold..."

"Sold my own home with Mark and experienced the same thoughtful service as before. Mark really is a superstar!..."

- Colleen G.

"I'll say one thing, if you are lucky enough to have Mark as your real estate agent, you are half the way home!..."

- Tom B.

"I was very happy with Mark and his professionalism. He is customer oriented and pleasant to work with. I would highly recommend him...."

- Paula M.

"We had to sell two houses within the Family Trust and Mark did everything possible to make it easy. We had what I thought were barriers; however, Mark took them down and sold both houses for far more than asking price. He does all of the heavy lifting and does the little things as well. Mark also took the time to find a rental unit for a family member. He looked up and down the peninsula and found what was needed. MARK is the BEST at what he does! I now consider him a friend, as he has done so..."

- John L.

"I just wanted to share a story regarding my experience with Varbrato Real Estate Services, actually Mark Martino. If you have ever sold a home, you know that it can be a very burdesum process. After experiencing other relators, and their wants and needs, both my wife and I were pleased to find one that focused on the task at hand, selling our home, and not their wants and needs. His ability to understand the objective and assist us with the process is far beyond what we had experienced wth other relators. For that Mr. Martino, thank you for meeting..."

- James D.

"We have worked with Mark for many, many years and will work with him in the future for all of our real estate needs. He is personable and professional on all counts. Mark is reliable, prompt and always available. He has helped us with two very important real estate transactions, both very successful, and has provided us with extremely good sound advice throughout the years. We would refer any of our family or friends to him at any opportunity. In the near future our sons will be needing advice on real estate investments and with complete confidence and conviction we..."
