Bob Martins – Educator Extrordinaire
Realtor, broker, mentor, teacher, all around Good Guy. That’s the best way for me to describe who Bob is to all of us at Maple Leaf Realty.
Bob began his real estate career over 28 year ago, owning and operating RT Martins Associates until joining us in 2011. He brought with him not only a good number of listings but more importantly, he brought his experience and wealth of knowledge, all of which we take full advantage of whenever we can.
Throughout his career, Bob has stayed active in the politics of real estate and was at one time a State Director, President of our local Board, State Chairperson for the Professional Standards Committee, a member of the Grievance and Arbitration panel and was voted Realtor of the year – twice!
With the background that Bob has in his field we were able to convince him to become Maple Leaf Realty’s official Agent Educator. Without batting an eye, Bob jumped right in, and in addition to his real estate business, working with buyers and sellers, he has developed an extensive training program for our agents, both new and experienced.
Classes have covered the workings of septic systems, heating systems, water sources, contracts and much more. Bob is also a facilitator of the Brian Buffini Peak Performers course – a course that we require all of our agents to attend that puts them on the right course for a successful career in real estate.
Why am I telling you all of this? Although Bob has stepped back from working with Buyers and Sellers, and has not renewed his Broker’s license as of 2022, you need to know that Bob Martins is one of the best in this field and if you are working with any of Maple Leaf Realty’s agents, you are working with someone who is learning the ins and outs of this business from the best of the best.
Oh, and just so you know, his son Tom Martins joined Maple Leaf Realty in 2021 so please check out his Bio too.
