Get to know Lisa Martin
As a licensed Realtor since 2002 and a licensed broker since 2004, Lisa has helped hundreds of families and individuals buy and sell homes.
A native Minnesotan, Lisa considers herself a "home grown" Realtor. She graduated from Wayzata High School a "long time ago" and received a Bachelor of Science degree in Sociology, Business Administration and Gerontology from Minnesota State University, Mankato. Recent educational pursuits include Masters level studies in Psychology and Counseling (which is great in working with clients!)
Prior to real estate, Lisa worked as a Benefits Analyst and a Financial Advisor. Her decision to launch a real estate career came from a combination of a deep desire to help people and her love for remodeling homes. It was a simple decision…”I just want to sell pretty houses!” After many years in the business, Lisa now knows it’s much more than selling pretty houses and continues every day to feed her passion for helping people.
For Lisa, working in real estate is all about earning trust every day. Very often client relationships evolve into lasting friendships. Lisa loves truly getting to know her clients, their children, their pets, their parents and so forth. She learns about their hobbies, their interests, and their jobs. Armed with this knowledge, she then can place them in the perfect neighborhood and home. Lisa says, "My primary goal is to create a relationship based on great communication and trust. The more effectively we communicate, the better able I am to serve your needs. The process can be confusing and sometimes stressful. I promise to keep you informed and to put myself in your shoes. You will know that I've got your back!"
Lisa’s signature tag line is "Relationships over Revenue. Period." Lisa is proud to have served as a member of the MN Association of Realtor's Professional Ethics and Standards Committee. This work has helped her practice real estate at the highest level of integrity.
Lisa is married to husband Dave, and they have a “fur child” dog named Penny Lou, who is a Cavachon. Lisa has two sons, Dan and Tim, four step-children, six step-grandchildren, and an amazing granddaughter named Faith. Lisa enjoys golf, travel, yoga, photography, remodeling and weekends at the cabin in Webb Lake Wisconsin.
