Martha joined KMS Partners, LLC and Coldwell Banker as a sales associate in 2008. KMS has been the #1 ranked Coldwell Banker Team in Fairfield County since 2009, based on volume sold. Martha’s real estate success essentially rolls-up the experiences across her professional life. Her New York ad career in consumer products for the Fortune 100, propels her to constantly zero-in on what drives the buyer to purchase, or the seller to sell. Years of effectively managing complex projects with teams of people, underpins her ability to clearly communicate to all of the channels in the real estate process, keeping everyone upbeat, informed and forward-focused. Her sensitivity to the tangible and emotional impact of moving, comes from managing her own cross-country and local moves to 10 different communities. Her drive to get the best possible return on each real estate transaction, is rooted in her personal success at buying, gutting and selling six properties for significant personal profit. “The complexity of today’s real estate deals, in today’s recession, doesn’t daunt me as it does others. I find the thrill of the hunt in understanding more about the property that I’m selling, than even some of my sellers admit to knowing. I will do what it takes, to understand how to sell or buy a property that is my client’s target, while maintaining honesty and building trust.”
