Martin is a master of recruitment and mentoring. He has some of the industry’s top agents working for him and that has not happened by luck. Martin knows that the best people want to work with the best brand and he ensures that he, and his management team, are there to support the sales staff across the board.

Martin will personally meet with all potential staff, discuss how he and the team can help on an on-going basis and make sure that the Operations, Marketing, HR and Community Relationship divisions are geared up to help.
