North Pulaski Realtor Thrives Putting His Clients Needs First

NORTH LITTLE Rock, AR., – While most people can draw a clear distinction between their work life and home life, for Realtor Bruce Martin it all seems to overlap and blend together. Over the years it’s become just the way he lives his life.


“One of the reasons real estate is such a great profession is the fact that the customer’s welfare comes before a Realtor and living with this frame of mine has turned out to be very rewarding,” said Martin.  “So while most people go through life spending 80% of their time at a job – I basically live my life taking care of my clients and that’s just the way I live.”


In July, Bruce Martin’s way of living and giving was recognized by his peers who named him the North Pulaski Board of Realtors 2011 ?Realtor of the Year.’


“I am very thankful for the opportunities and blessings being a Realtor affords,” said Martin. “I promise to continue to grow as a person and Realtor. I am proud to be involved in a profession that constantly holds us to a high standard in our quest to assist others in the American dream of home ownership.”


Martin launched his career in real estate – or rather his new way of living – back in 2003. He quickly embraced the philosophy of doing for others and saw his success and community involvement skyrocket. Martin’s sales with Crye-Leike, REALTORS landed him as a Multi-Million Life Member for five years of over two million in sales production and his community involvement lead him to volunteer work with Special Olympics and serving as a board member of New Beginnings Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation for Men.


As the 2010 President of the North Pulaski Board of Realtors, Martin has made service to the “Spokes for Little Folks” organization a primary focus. In just seven months he has met his goal of providing 100 recycled bicycles for children in need.


“We will continue to collect and give away as many bicycles as possible until the end of the year,” said Martin.  “It’s just doing the right thing. Caring about others, integrity, character and my word are how I want to be remembered by all – especially the clients who I have worked with over the years.”


Bruce Martin is a man of great faith? which became stronger in February 2005 after an accident damaged his knees to the point that doctors were not certain whether he would be able to walk again.


“I have been given a second chance,” said Martin. “I learned about the greatness of God and the kindness of others during that time. I thank God for placing me in this profession when I can benefit others, support my family and work with friends.”


Whether it’s serving a first-time homebuyer, helping an existing customer with repairs, locating the right contractor or reconnecting with a client he helped years ago? Martin loves his life of service to others.


“Being a Realtor has caused me to grow as a person and think beyond myself,” said Martin. “Few professions encourage such growth of character and integrity by the very nature of the profession.”
