We were so pleased to meet Martine and so encouraged to find someone who totally understood our needs. She made a great selection, we didn’t lose time and we just found the loft of our dream within 4 days! And when we had to fight to have it with the coop, we really find in Martine a partner and a friend.

Throughout the entire process of representing the sale of 18 East 69th Street Martine was extremely professional, diligent and responsive. Her advice on pricing was right on! Her unparalleled preparation, dedication, and hard work resulted in delivering a prompt sale within 3 months only. Truly a pleasure to work with.
I have worked with Martine as my broker for the last 10 years. She found twice, in 2004 and 2011 amazing and unusual properties that fitted my expectations and budget: a townhouse and a duplex apartment close from my childrens' school. I really appreciated her good taste, discretion, and effectiveness. I highly recommend Martine for her professionalism.
We had been looking for a Pied a Terre with a lot character in New York City for over 2 years when we met Martine. We had very specific criteria of style and location. Remarkably, within a month, she found us an amazing loft with a terrace in a small coop prewar building in the heart of Soho! We had been previously told that for a foreigner buying in a coop was nearly impossible… Martine’s experience made it happen! She demonstrated a tremendous support all throughout the process of the application and managed to get us our dream apartment! Martine did a remarkable job as a broker and as a friend!

Chère Martine, Merci pour votre travail, votre gentillesse et votre disponibilité pendant notre recherche. Ce fut un plaisir de visiter toutes ces belles maisons avec vous! Nous sommes très contents de notre choix et je dois avouer que, si vous n'aviez pas insiste, je n'aurais jamais été voir cette maison. Mille mercis encore et a très vite j'en suis certaine! xxx
I have known Martine for over 8 years. Martine helped me and my family to settle in New York when we first moved here. At this time we were looking for a rent in the Upper East Side. A bright and original space…but more challenging, we were dealing from France and asking Martine to close a deal before we’d all arrived. She made it happened! Then two years ago, Martine helped me again. This time I was looking for an apartment to buy. Despite my very specific taste and requirements, Martine was able to identify and then to lock up the purchase of the apartment I now own (and love) in less than 3 months. She has been of an amazing support and proved again, if needed be, that she is one of the finest experts of the New York’s real estate market. Not only Martine excels regarding all very specific rules and regulations of New York’s real estate, but she also guides and advices her clients with much understanding of their unique needs. She carefully listens and asks for the good questions. Whatever tenacity, time and energy your request will take, she will demonstrate a fantastic enthusiasm and will never give up… Thank you Martine!

Martine has that "specialness" so difficult to find in the real estate business, a wholesome dedicated professional. She has rented my 2 properties in a condominium building with success. She has great taste and a very discerning eye in guiding you to make the property as appealing as possible. She extends herself beyond the call of duty always making sure the whole process moves smoothly. I have never met the tenants because I trusted her entirely in choosing the right people. I feel lucky to have met Martine a few years ago not only as my broker but as a friend.
We highly recommend Martine Capdevielle as a real estate broker. Of all the brokers we have worked with over the years, Martine was the most hardworking, helpful and knowledgeable. She found us the perfect tenant and believed it was equally important for her as for us that the tenant was most reliable and honest. In addition, Martine went out of her way to give us excellent recommendations for decorating including paint, curtains, re-glazing and window repair. As landlords, we cannot recommend any other broker more than Martine.

As a lawyer I have often worked with many excellent real estate brokers on different matters, but you Martine exceeded all my expectations. Your professionalism made our purchase much easier, and I must also say that your dedication and help, even after the purchase was closed, made it a truly pleasure to have you as our representative.
I was very lucky to have Martine at my side when looking for an investment property in New York. She demonstrated the same utmost professionalism, expertise and reactivity in both the purchase (winning a bid war against 4 others buyers!) and rental stages of the transaction. No doubt I will definitely work with her in the future.
Martine has found excellent tenants for my luxury condominium unit, twice to date. Being that I was often absent, I felt entirely confident in Martine’s ability to attend to all aspects of the rental process. Martine is not only extremely professional and knowledgeable about real estate but she has the gift of connecting in an even tempered, firm yet sensitive manner with all parties involved. In addition to her expertise, honesty and absolute reliability, she brings a rich personality, wonderful visual talents and decorating tips to the mix. Martine has always gone beyond the call of duty for me and I would not hesitate to highly recommend her.
Martine has a very good knowledge of the Manhattan market but first and foremost she listens and understands her clients' wishes and needs. She did a fantastic job finding me a great investment property and she has always found excellent tenants over the last 8 years. Martine has a great sense of service and she cares.

Tuve la suerte de encontrar en Martine a la persona indicada para realizar mi sueño de comprar una propiedad en Manhattan. Yo vivo en la Argentina, y desde lejos, es muy difícil concretar una compra. Martine me oriento en la búsqueda con muy buen criterio, gran profesionalismo, y mucha percepción en cuanto a la calidad y ubicación de lo que estaba buscando. Como yo vivía lejos me ayudo generosamente con los arreglos que necesitaba el departamento. No solo encontré en ella una excelente y muy confiable "broker" sino también una gran amiga. La recomiendo como "a la mejor" a toda la gente que conozco de Latinoamérica
