Born in Cape Town, South Africa, having studied Economics, Martin Maskin is a Principal of Raine & Horne, Double Bay l Bondi Beach. Martin brings to the business a fortune of experience, having worked as a Real Estate Practitioner, and in particular, in the Eastern Suburbs based in Double Bay, for over 20 years. Martin admits he is a perfectionist, and his attention to detail is unparalleled.
Humble in his success, Martin says life is a learning curve and while he has many years of experience behind him, he still learns from experience on a daily basis. To become complacent, arrogant and opinionated, he feels, is dangerous. His approach to every job is to first listen to the vendor or buyer for his needs and wants, and not to assume on their behalf what he believes is correct for them. He says that buying a home is an emotional decision, not a financial one, and that understanding real personal service will entrust a client to an agent.
Martin says “Successful people are successful from the day they are born. It’s not about money or wealth – it’s a mindset. You have to be humble, work hard and maintain a professional approach at all times. Leave no stone unturned, and treat a client’s home as if it were your own, with care and respect. A lot of agents will not go beyond what they’ve been commissioned to do. I aim to keep my clients totally happy, from the moment I meet them to the end result, even if it requires attention to the most minute detail.”
