My selection of this firm from a competitive field led me to believe they would provide the best services possible, and I was never disappointed. His work on my behalf relating to all aspects of property management was perfect. Always there when needed, attentive to the renter as well as myself, he was the best!

Monte is a pro. I've worked with him on the three sale/purchases of homes on the westside. He knows the market, provide sage guidance, is genuine and honest and never ever leaves you feeling as though you're asking too much from him irrespective of the issue. A few years ago I was a nervous and distrusting first time buyer and they've earned my trust and respect - which regretfully can be difficult - but he has demonstrated to me that he and his team are interested in long term relationships and to that end I've always felt as though their interests are aligned with mine. Monte and team are never pushy and are super responsive.

Trust! I can't say enough about Hartman Real Estate. They handled every aspect of the process of selling my home. I never felt pressured or stressed by the process because they were their every step of the way. My situation got even more complicated with my HOA and another owner and they assisted and advised me on how to deal with that as well! Not something they had to do, just an example of the extra steps that they take. You are in good hands with Hartman Real Estate.
