About Gerry Martin
Drawing house plans as a second grader in Tucson, Arizona and making cardboard and brick playhouses, having a home, was always, and is my passion, my love.
Having been married to a residential and commercial builder for over 35 years, not only gives me a deep appreciation for design and construction but the many aspects of the business. I read plans and was involved in the planning, construction and supervision of the building of our 3,600 sq.ft. custom home in Lake Arrowhead, California and our 4,700 sq. ft. custom ranch style home in La Verne, California.
Formally a grocery buyer in a highly competitive market for a large Supermarket Chain in Southern California for fifteen years I know how important dollars are to any business. Negotiating with the largest food companies in the world, I certainly do not fear the negotiation process. Branching out as a National Food Broker, selling to food chains across the United States taught me the importance of understanding what motivates a buyer. I never knew the skills I developed in food sales could be so helpful in selling Real Estate. Dealing with different demographic areas and marketing to different cultures has taught me to respect the individual life styles not only in the meals that are prepared but in the homes that are selected.
Previously selling new homes in the Reno-Sparks area and winning the Sales Person of the Year in 2005 from the Builder’s Association of Northern Nevada was an honor I take seriously. It reflects my commitment to the buyer, seller and the home.
Always striving for excellence, looking for better ways to serve my customers, asking questions to find the perfect home or evaluating comparables to insure they are buying or selling competitively, I treat each customer with the care and respect they deserve.
