The MARTIN Story

Not your typical agent

Managing Director Jeremy Martin knew he wanted to be in real estate from the time he was 12 years old.  By 14 he was working on a casual basis with an experienced property developer, learning first-hand that many agents have a short term focus on transactions and commissions.  In contrast, clients view property as an investment, not a purchase, and they value relationships, information and opportunities that contribute to their success and well-being over time.

Armed with a bachelor of Land Economics, and practical knowledge gained at small and large agencies, Jeremy Martin launched his own agency in 2001, based in Zetland. As his business success has grown, new team members have been selected on the basis of their attitude and affinity with MARTIN’s approach to customer care.

Jeremy Martin enjoys getting to know people and every one of MARTIN’s customers – be they a landlord, vendor, prospective buyer or a person who chooses to rent – is given the same time and respect. In particular, MARTIN refers to tenants as  ‘clients’, and this approach to service  is translating into longer tenancy, an increased sense of pride in rented homes, a consistent cash flow to landlords and referrals to MARTIN’s business.

With Jeremy Martin’s grounding in Land Economics, property owners also appreciate MARTIN’s analytical approach and up to date data and news on national and local issues that affect their investment, in a format that is relevant to them.
