Agent Details

Meet Martin

Licensed Salesperson

Martin was born in Staten Island, but spent most of his adult life in Manhattan.  After graduating from William Patterson University with degrees in Radio and TV Production, he then attended the Fashion Institute of Technology.  Throughout college he worked full time in retail at Bloomingdale's, so once he graduated, it was an easy transition to enter the company's executive buying program.  He spent 5 years working at the premier department store, leaving for additional opportunities in the NY fashion industry. 

Over the next 27 years, Martin worked his way up to SVP of Sales and Marketing at several major clothing/accessory brands.  His work allowed him to travel throughout the US, Canada, Europe, and Asia. 

After looking for a weekend home, his search ended in Columbia County.  He purchased a "fixer-upper" on Mt. Merino, just outside Hudson, and over several years turned his house into a midcentury modern open concept classic!

With the downturn of the economy hitting the NY garment industry, he decided it was time to pursue his true passion REAL ESTATE!  He spent two years with Citi-Habitats/Corcoran and Douglas Elliman, but on Sunday evenings he dreaded leaving his peaceful upstate home for the crazy city.  He decided it was time to become a full-time upstate resident.

Being a weekender for so long, he really understands the stress/concerns in having just those 2 short days to work on a home upstate.  He guides his clients to the perfect house on the perfect size lot for their needs and within their budget.  He has a practical view of homeownership, and can be a great resource.  Need a plumber, lawyer, woodstove, pool, someone to plow/mow, ask Martin.  He will save you time, money, and frustration.  When not working, Martin enjoys traveling, cooking, and consults with the locval community colleges on fashion/marketing.  And he loves animals.  

Let Martin find you the perfect home.  He's there for you before, during, and ever after the sale!
