Martinez Joins Keller Williams Greater Downtown Realty

Tuesday, September 12, 2017

Manuel Martinez has joined Keller Williams Greater Downtown Realty.

Mr. Martinez obtained his real estate license in both Tennessee and Georgia in 2007. As a new agent, he joined Prudential Realty Center the same year and received his sales training from Steve Champion. In 2009, he joined the Bell family's new construction brokerage formally known as Bell Development, now Bell Homebuilders. 

"Mr. Martinez developed vast experience over the course of eight years while managing the company’s marketing and advertising of new homes, overseeing a large pool of rental/investment properties, and developing web based applications to better serve customers. He also helped many families, single moms, students, senior citizens, and individuals in various life transitions to find affordable housing options," officials said.

"Real Estate is about people, and I love people. My passion is to serve families and individuals; my goal is to provide them with exceptional customer service by being sincerely vested every step of the way in one of the most crucial decisions in life, buying or selling a home. There are also many folks renting and looking for a starter home. I want to provide them with the support, diligence, and expertise they need to make their next move a success story; every transition is just as important as the destination" said Mr. Martinez. He has also helped many business executives, entrepreneurs, business owners, nurses, doctors, as well as families and individuals looking for new and luxury homes. 

He stated that he has learned the value of not only being a diligent real estate professional, but also of being attentive to the needs and wishes of families and individuals. "Most people can buy or sell a home using the internet.  I strongly believes that it takes more than the web to buy and sell a home for the best price and in just the right time; this level of customer service also requires the best kind of support, responsiveness, and diligence all the way through, including after the closing," Mr. Martinez said.

Mr. Martinez has joined the Keller Williams office in downtown Chattanooga; where his former mentor Mr. Champion serves as broker and director of Career Development. He said is honored and very excited to have joined the Keller Williams family. 

Over his ten-year career in Real Estate, Mr. Martinez expressed that the highlight has been helping many people find the right home for their specific season in life, not only locally in the greater Chattanooga area, but also from across the nation and from virtually all corners of the world. Mr. Martinez is fluent in Spanish and English. He also holds a bachelors degree in business management from Dalton State College, and a masters degree in business administration from Belhaven University, based out of Mississippi. 

Mr. Martinez specializes in:

- New Construction and Re-sales;
- Relocations ;
- Leasing and Rentals;
- Investment Properties; and
- Property Management Consulting

Tired Of Property Tax Increases

Why is it every time the city of Chattanooga and Hamilton County want to raise money they have to punish the homeowners?  I'm sick of the few paying for the many.   If you want to be fair, I would not complain on a 1/2 cent local sales tax raise since everyone would have to contribute their fair share.  Or how about a wheel tax which would get everyone who owns ...
