Since 2000 Carlos Martin has been building a successful real estate business in the competitive South Florida market. Known for his sharp insight and savvy negotiating skills, Carlos is the kind of real estate professional who values ethics and integrity over simply making the next deal. “I’m a big believer in making sure I build lasting relationships with my customers,” says Carlos. “I’ve never understood why so many agents put pressure on prospective clients. That’s not how I operate. I treat my customers like family.”
It’s an approach that has proved successful. Carlos’s number one source of business originates from previous customers and their referrals. In other words, people want to work with Carlos on their next real estate venture. One thing is certain for a broker with deep knowledge of Miami and South Broward, Carlos’ level of commitment to his clients is unmatched. Whether it’s establishing open communication throughout the entire purchase process or taking an extra 20 minutes to help a customer understand a complicated real estate term, Carlos believes in the value of service.
Carlos is always evolving. During his career, Carlos has been both student and teacher. He’s attended numerous seminars to educate himself on the latest technology, spotting trends and changing market conditions. Yet Carlos has also served as an expert by training more than 30 real estate agents on how to succeed in such a challenging field. And is there one piece of advice he always imparts on young agents? “Always do what’s in the best interest of your customer,” Carlos says. “The money will follow.”
