Marty works with Coldwell Banker's top-producing agents as a Mentor to provide them with the resources and connections they need to succeed in the luxury market.
Marty started his career in the sales industry as a sales manager in the automotive industry with Chevron, Michelin and Goodyear after working with the Marin County Fire Department as a firefighter. Transitioning to the real estate industry seemed like a perfect fit, bringing together his people skills, sales background and passion for homes. He quickly found success achieving the "Rookie of the Year" his first year in the business. His relentless determination to succeed has led Marty to numerous industry accomplishment awards including the prestigious Chairman's Circle of Excellence "Top Producer" and Coldwell Banker's International Diamond Society and International Sterling Society.
Helping agents grow became a true passion for Marty. He started Dream Team Marin, an intern training program where young people can learn to build professional skills in the real estate industry. The Dream Team Marin was recognized by several CRS instructors so a workbook was published giving the step by step directions for other real estate professionals to develop their own Dream Team intern training programs. Marty is a Mentor of the Buffini Peak Producers training program, a 12 week course designed to help agents become top producing Professionals and conducts business development seminars where real estate agents can sharpen their skills in conducting open houses, negotiations, presentations and time management.
