From England to Australia, through wide travels and rewarding career paths, Michael Martin brings a rare breadth of experience to the Bayside property market. As an intelligent, intuitive and high-integrity individual, Michael's earliest career choice as a communication specialist for children with learning disabilities still informs his work today, as he provides a service that is based in communication, care and commitment to service.
These ethics have seen him through his travels from his childhood home on the Isle of Wight, to the Australian real estate industry in the early 2010s, to his current career as a highly regarded and recommended agent and auctioneer. Dedicated to providing beyond-expectation results, Michael has built a successful career on excellent service, exceptional honesty and expert negotiating skills, and on a value-adding auctioneering style that is fast-paced, forthright and delivers results!
His style is enhanced by a 'hands-on' approach that sees Michael commit to understanding the needs of all stake-holders, their motivations and budgets to ensure the best possible result. Having personal ownership of every aspect of the campaign, Michael is there at each step; from initial marketing, through all open-for-inspections, to the fall of the hammer. Throughout it all, his relationship skills ensure vendors are heard and understood, potential buyers are engaged, and bidders are motivated to reach for the reserve and well beyond!
Committed to fitness, with a passion for running that has taken him from City to Surf and through a few half-marathons along the way, Michael's energetic approach and commitment to Melbourne life has even seen him forsake his formerly beloved rugby for Australian Rules. It's all part of a love for local life that has developed over many years…from the time that Michael and his New Zealand-born wife first met in a Melbourne Backpackers hostel, through their years of travelling, to their final well-considered choice to make Bayside their forever home!
