What clients are saying..

Martin was great! He was quick at helping me find exactly what I needed. When it came down to scheduling viewings he was efficient and considerate of my time, showing me only what I asked for. He understands your needs and is capable of tailoring options to fit your budget. He is friendly, transparent, and professional. I appreciate him, and I am very pleased with my new home!
My husband and I were moving from a one bedroom apartment and we were looking for a townhouse in the downtown Houston area. At first we were contacting every single listing agent for all the properties that we visited and then we contacted Martin Ruiz at one of the ULR properties. Martin is very organized, he followed up with me by emails prior to the appointment, he arrived at the appointment 30 minutes before we did to make sure all the lights were on, etc. After that appointment, Martin continued to reach out to ask if we had found anything that we liked, when I told him no he sent me a list of properties that could interest us. After that he asked me to send him anything that we wanted to look at. Martin assisted us in visiting a dozen properties. He was always available to answer the phone, will drive at anytime to come meet us. When we finally found a house that we liked, Martin arranged everything with the leasing agent to make our move seamless. He drove all the way to the woodlands to drop off our first month check and security deposit. I have to say working with Martin was a delight! We had an absolutely amazing experience workinf with Martin and would recommend him to anyone who is currently looking to move. My husband and I are considering buying a house soon and we will definitely consider ULR properties.
I recently moved to Houston from NYC and even though I spent about a month trying to get know the various neighborhoods in this sprawling city - I was still struggling to figure out where exactly to call home. I spent a weekend driving around on my own touring a few properties, however was feeling a little disenchanted with the process and unfamiliar city. I'd seen some pretty great listings on the ULR website and when I got in touch with ULR I began dealing with Martin. I was immediately impressed with Martin's attitude and his suggested approach for finding me a place. Prior to even meeting me, Martin made a surprisingly in depth effort to understand exactly what I was looking for - which makes sense - but it genuinely felt as though he wanted to understand the most subtle of my requirements so he could have my interests at heart when looking for properties. Martin then suggested he put together a list of properties he thought may meet my needs (which he sent through that night - Saturday!). Martin's effort to understand my requirements was evident in this list - they were all amazing and within my price-range - I had a hard time narrowing it down! We created a short-list and Martin drove out to my workplace one afternoon and spent hours taking me around to look at the various properties I was interested in. Martin's local knowledge and attention to detail came in to it's own at this stage and he was asking property managers all sorts of questions that only someone in the business would know to ask - which as a bonus actually resulted in a lower price than I would have gotten if I were on my own. Overall can't speak highly enough of Martin, seriously a top guy - I'm thrilled with my new home and would recommend Martin to anyone looking for a new place!! Bravo Sir!
Marty is the most caring person we know in Houston. My husband has been back and forth to MD Anderson for over a year. We have had a bumpy journey, and Marty has always been there to find us a great place to stay to escape from the day to day stress of dealing with cancer. He is patient, courteous, on top of everything and is present whenever one needs him - in person, text, phone, probably even carrier pigeon if necessary. We have been treated as family and made so much more comfortable in our apartment and in Houston. He always go the extra mile and has never met a person that he can not help in any way. We have been involved in many real estate deals over the course of our lives and have never encountered someone line Marty who truly cares that his clients are in the best place possible for the time. We have been truly blessed by him and are so grateful for his part in out lives at this time. Anyone who is looking should call him right away.
I first met Marty in late 2014. I was coming from Atlanta for 6 weeks of radiation treatment at MD Anderson in January & February of 2015. My wife and I were looking for a nice apartment to lease to make a bad situation as pleasant as possible. Marty got us set up in a wonderful 2 bedroom apartment. But more than just getting us booked in, he called, sent texts, emails, etc., to make sure everything was going well and to see if we needed anything during our stay. He was amazing. He told me anytime I had to come back out to Houston, to just send him a text on his cell phone and he would take care of everything...and he did. Then in August of 2015 I had to return to Houston for cancer surgery. Marty took care of us again ! We were there for 5 weeks. After surgery, I had to go back every couple of months for a check up...Marty took care of us. It's hard to explain in words how much Marty did for my wife and myself. He took care of us like we were family. I wish him the best in his new endeavor...but I know he will be successful, because he knows how to take care of his clients in the most amazing way.
So I recently moved to houston and made the mistake of moving to the outer loop. After being up to my neck in boredom, my brother and I decided to look towards inner loop properties. Problem was... that there are a million properties and we had no idea where to start. With my schedule, I had no time find out where would be the ideal location. A friend recommended ULR so i decided to try it out. Martin Ruiz contacted me and was excellent at asking the right questions to determine what we wanted. Best part is that he is my age and we had many similarities so he knew exactly what we were looking for. He even went to all of the locations that we spoke about prior to our tours to screen out all the bs and focus our tour. Ultimately, we went with the The Sovereign top floor apartment for a ground floor price. I could not be happier with the service, attention to detail, broker expertise and social approach to the service we received. I actually consider Martin a friend and look forward to our search to buy a home when the time comes.
While i was planning to move to Houston me and my wife were doing our own research on getting a place. Co incidentally a friend of our also move to Houston a week before and he recommended us to Martin. Searching for a place in new town can be very stressful and hard especially when you are working and new to the town. Martin made it very simple and easy for us. He is very helpful , professional and friendly. his advice and work approach was based on our needs , lifestyle and budget. He shortlisted all the properties for us and made the visits possible and that was very helpful in shortlisting the properties and finally deciding on the place. Expats !! people who are relocating or new to the town. I would highly recommend a call , or email/text to Martin. He is very responsive and knows how to take care of clients like friends.
I feel truely fortunate having had Marty as my agent. Going through the stress of selling a house, and moving at the same time Marty was able to make the buying process fun, and as stress free as possible. His motivation and attention to detail allowed my wife and I to focus on our life outside of the purchase. We had a unique set of requirements for our home, but Marty was every bit as committed to helping us on day 30 of house hunting as he was on day 1. You would be missing out using anyone else!
I needed to quickly find a new home, after my living arrangements abruptly changed. This had left me extremely stressed. Marty assured me that he would help me and my new roommate find one in time. He asked us specific questions to help him locate potential apartments that best fit our budgets and personal preferences. Marty has lived in Houston almost all of his life and really knows the city. In initially asking those detailed questions, he knew which rentals and what specific areas we would be happiest living in. He sent us an email of several rentals very quickly. Marty was very considerate of our financial concerns, and the rentals he had found fit our criteria. Marty made the entire process very easy for me, and always made sure that everything was done correctly in a timely manner! He was always quick to respond to all of my texts, phone calls, and emails, and inform us about any communication he had with the properties we were interested in. Marty is truly amazing at what he does! His promptness, his outstanding communication skills, his keen knowledge of his job and the market, his pleasant personality, and his ability to listen really sets him apart from others. He showed he really cares about putting the concerns and wants of the client first. Thank you so much for helping me find my happy home! You were a blessing!!
