If I could have given Leigh a total of 6 stars for "responsiveness," I would have. He's on top of his game and doesn't let a call or text message slip by without quickly returning it. That's actually one of the reasons I chose him to help me find my first home and guide me through a process I was slowly learning about. He was very patient with me and even worked around my crazy schedule so I could bring my parents up for a weekend to have them tag along since I was doing this all on my own. He doesn't waste a minute of your time and was always prompt, courteous, and professional. He's a very ambitious, self-motivated guy and is always prepared. For example, want to check out the attic of a house, but it's growing dark and you don't have a flashlight? No worries, Leigh will bring three. Want to view a growing list of houses for sale, but they're all over town and you're worried about time…

Want to view a growing list of houses for sale, but they're all over town and you're worried about time? Don't sweat it, Leigh has already mapped them out in order of closest to furthest, with their respective HAR print-outs positioned in a handy pocket folder he gives you, so you can read the details on the way. Don't know who to choose for a broker, lender, or home inspector? Leigh's already got a list prepared with his recommendations to help you narrow it down. And once the deal's done, Leigh doesn't just disappear. He calls to check in on you, or see if you have any questions. As for the cherry on top, Leigh always follows up and gets you what you deserve.

Seller

Thinking I had a minimum of 90 days to sell my home, it sold in seven. Tim walked me thru the process, assisting with services outside the realm of selling the house. When I panicked due to time constraints, Tim's cool head and reasoning put me back on track to the end goal. Tim is calm, collected and above all a professional, constantly in touch to see if he could be of further service. Highly recommend Tim in all aspects of A to Z of the home sale. Thank you.

Buyer

Leigh was recommended to my partner and me by a mutual friend. We had a pretty specific idea regarding location and a specific-ish idea of what exactly we were looking for house-wise (first-time buyers). From the start, Leigh paid very close attention to our comments, but without being overbearing about it; he very quickly ‘got’ us. Once we found something we were seriously interested in and started the process, Leigh was fully available to answer questions or offer advice—including during times he was out of town with family. Diplomatically speaking, we hit some snags with the seller and the seller’s agent and Leigh was always appropriately aggressive in helping advance the process and provide us with his honest assessment of the situation (should I stay or should I go-type questions). Above all, he was concerned with making sure we got the house we wanted at a fair price. As an aside, …

Above all, he was concerned with making sure we got the house we wanted at a fair price. As an aside, the house we ended up buying (which we love) is, I believe, on the low end of his typical price point—but he always treated us as though we were his most important client. He’s also personable and friendly, so despite the fact that spending a day in the Houston heat looking at houses may not be my favorite way to spend a Saturday, Leigh made the whole process pretty enjoyable.

Buyer

Going forward, I will look no further for any realtor than Tim Shanahan. Tim demonstrated to be world-class, savvy, and highly ethical as a realtor and advisor. In particular, we love that Tim stays on top of things and follows up and that Tim made great efforts to understand what type of home we wanted. Our experience with Tim Shanahan could not have been better. A+ rating!

There are real estate agents, and then there is Leigh Martin. Leigh helped me find my Houston townhouse when I thought I would never find a quality place in my price range. In turn, he then helped every friend I recommended to him, spending time with them as though they were family. For Leigh, finding you your home is as important to him as it is to you. In my case, I felt like sometimes it was more important to him than me. He isn't just an agent; he is a mind reader. Unlike a lot of agents who 'assume' what you want, Leigh listens to your concerns, your previous gripes, and your requests, and unlike a lot of agents, tries his best to match those exactly (sometimes against his best interest). If you are looking for an agent with integrity, a desire to please that is so refreshing, and a man who takes pride in everything he will do for you, look no further.

Seller

Timothy Shanahan was amazing and very knowledgeable. He was very responsive and helpful in every step. I know he would have made more money selling my unit but explained my options fully and supported my decision regardless of his benefit. I appreciated that extra care and time. He is my realtor for any future endeavors as well.

Buyer

Leigh helped me on the buy-side and I was very impressed. I have nothing but positive things to say about Leigh. I can't imagine anyone being more responsive during a process. To me, this is really the most important characteristic as he has the resources of a large broker behind him to get any question answered. He is helpful with his ideas and listens to your concerns. He truly allows you to feel like you are driving the process at your own pace and takes the role of a trusted advisor. Leigh is organized, honest, prompt, take the job seriously and genuinely cares about his client's needs. At the same time, his technical work on the comps helped us save money during negotiations. His positive energy remained high during the transaction regardless of the situation. I'm already working with Leigh on my next real estate deal.

Seller

Tim has been a great asset to the sale of my townhome and purchase of my new home, which was only listed for 3 days before a full-price offer. The sale went quickly and smoothly and if I had to re-do the process I wouldn't change anything. Now looking forward to closing on my new home. Great find for your realtor needs!

Buyer

The service and personal attention I received from Leigh Martin were exceptional and unexpected. Leigh’s knowledge of the housing market in Houston was extremely helpful combined with his understanding of the home I was looking for. Leigh guided me through the entire process, from loan prequalification to searching for the house to making the offer and closing the deal. I credit Leigh with a smooth, stress-free home-buying experience. This is my first time buying a house and I never would have found my dream home without his market awareness. I am nothing but pleased with Leigh and his expertise and would recommend him to everyone.

Buyer

Timothy was fantastic. He was so on top of the entire process, each step of the way, just made it smooth and easy. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience, integrity. He was just wonderful to work with. Would highly recommend it, and look forward to working with him again in the future.
