Top California Realtor Earns Nationwide Recognition for Sales of Luxury Properties in the Napa and Sonoma Wine Country
Napa, CA (PRWEB) September 10, 2013
While her ranking in the top 1% of Sotheby’s International Realty® sales associates for the past 15 years has earned her a stellar reputation with her clients and colleagues, Ginger Martin’s leading role in the sale of the single highest-priced piece of residential real estate in Sonoma County history (at $35M), and sales of the highest-priced Napa Valley properties two years in a row have catapulted her into the most elite rank of real estate professionals.
The Wall Street Journal and REAL Trends have named Martin’s team one of the “Top Teams” in the country the last three consecutive years. That honor and her most recent sales figures are reminders that Ginger Martin is a vital asset for her discerning clients in the Napa and Sonoma Valleys, and to international clientele purchasing and selling California Wine Country real estate.
“What a privilege it is to represent some of the most spectacular real estate in one of the most beautiful locations in the world,” Martin exclaims. “And on top of that I have the added privilege of representing clientele who truly appreciate not only the region and its culture, but also the work I do for my clients.” That now well-known representation began the day in 1997 when Martin was recruited as a founding associate of the Sotheby’s San Francisco brokerage, and subsequently as a founder of the esteemed firm’s Wine Country office. “My husband owns a winery here, Favero Vineyards, and we had a second home here,” Martin says, adding, “So it was a natural transition when many of my clients from San Francisco, the Silicon Valley and international locations began calling on me to represent them in the purchase or sale of Napa Valley or Sonoma Valley vacation homes, vineyards and wineries.”
Martin attributes much of her immense success and sales expertise to what she calls “the priceless knowledge” she gained from her impressive 20 year career as founder and CEO of her own sales and marketing firm. Another major advantage benefiting her clients is her extensive experience with a personal real estate portfolio that includes land and residential purchase, development, construction, management and sale.
“My commitment to my clients, and the success that brings allows me to enjoy a commitment to community, humanitarian projects and the arts,” Martin is quick to emphasize. “I feel very blessed that I’m able to donate a percentage of my income to local and international non-profit organizations.”
Martin is on her way to another record year in the Napa and Sonoma Valleys; with her year-to-date sales topping $80M and her recent $14M Napa Valley transaction likely to be followed by an even more impressive sale currently in its final stages. Her current inventory, including Wine Country property ranging in price from $1.75M to $22M, is even more testament to her continuing success.
