Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker
William “Bill” Martin is a veteran when it comes to assisting high net-worth individuals with some of the biggest, most important financial decisions of their lives…their homes. That’s why the buyers, sellers and investors he works with call him indispensable.
A born and bred New Yorker, Bill brings a key advantage to his position with Douglas Elliman—decades of experience working for some of the most prominent investment firms worldwide, from Oppenheimer and Chase to Citicorp and UBS. During his tenure with these companies, he advised affluent clients on wealth management strategies and optimum investment techniques. The registered investment advisor and financial consultant counseled well-heeled clientele, including celebrities, Park Avenue public figures and Fortune 500 families, on retirement and education planning, fixed income portfolios and privately managed accounts. He also brought his broad range of business expertise to the luxury retail and corporate marketplace.
While these prestigious assignments put his Marketing and Finance degree from Syracuse University’s Whitman School of Business Management—and experience studying International Trade and Economics in London, England—to good use, he longed to assist high net-worth clients with one of the most critical investments in their portfolios: real estate.
After all, Bill delivers…and has the numbers to back it. He has been previously a top agent on one of the firms most recognized teams which has collectively sold over a billion dollars in New York City real estate, is consistently ranked within the top ten producers at Douglas Elliman and, for the third consecutive year, was among the top ten in residential sales throughout the whole Douglas Elliman Real Estate Network. The Wall Street Journal also ranked them among the top 50 teams in the U.S. in 2010.
Bill also operates out of Greenwich, Connecticut, assisting buyers, sellers and investors with their Fairfield County real estate needs.
His expertise in the financial market complements Bill's overall strengths. He’s able to take complex financial transactions and communicate them into an understandable manner. This further allows our clients to make the best, most fully informed decisions. Clients also take notice of Bill’s personal traits—patient, reliable, dedicated and responsive to their needs.
However, Bill is just as committed to helping others in his personal life as his professional one. As such, he is captain of the volunteer team for the Bailey House (www.baileyhouse.org), which provides housing to the homeless population with HIV/AIDS that he has been working closely with for the past 10 years. He also commits his free time to professional organizations as a member of the Investment Management Consultant Association (IMCA – www.imca.org), a charter member of the Association of Collegiate Entrepreneurs (ACE), and the Real Estate Board of New York (REBNY – www.rebny.com), and is building alliances with residential real estate brokers to assist potential clients from Fairfield County, Connecticut, where he also has a home.
In a business where trust is everything, Bill’s sterling credentials, intuitive intelligence and native New Yorker knowledge set him apart from the pack. Working with a broker as dedicated as Bill is the best investment you can possibly make.
