We originally met Martin Eiden and Shawn Wilson (of the Martin Eiden Team) three years ago when we were in the market to buy and they were the listing agents for 26 S. Oxford Street #1A. We were impressed on their professionalism in selling our property...staging and styling, knowing all the answers to our questions willingness to show at times convenient to us. As you may suspect, there was competitive bidding and we, unfortunately, did not get the property. Two years later, the new owner put the property back on the market with Martin and Shawn since he had to transfer out of state. When we reached out, they warmly greeted us and continued, if not improved upon, professionalism that we remembered. Their thoroughness and attention to detail gave us the confidence to go into contract in a changing market. Based on our experience as buyers, we hired the Martin Eiden Team to sell our penthouse at 531 Vanderbilt Ave. Although the market was considered "soft" and there were plans for a 40+ story building to be built next to our building, Martin and Shawn were able to generate a competitive bidding outcome and we sold the property over the asking price. Candidly…if it wasn't for their attention to detail, complementary styling and staging, and tireless energy to show the property countless times, we would have not achieved the record-setting price that we did. Sincerely and wholeheartedly, we recommend the Martin Eiden Team to buyers and sellers alike. We now consider Shawn and Martin friends in addition to our brokers.
