About Geoff Martin


Buyer Specialist

A born-and-raised Angeleno, Geoff began investing in and managing industrial warehouses in 2000. Though he comes from commercial real estate, the opportunity to help a friend find a home in 2013 drew Geoff to Northeast LA, where he’s been a top-producing residential buyer’s agent ever since. He deeply believes the greatest service he can provide is the perspective every buyer needs to make the decisions that are right for them, no matter how long it takes. “Every relationship counts. Helping people find their way home adds value to their lives…and mine.”

Geoff is an avid heli-skier, dog lover, sartorialist and bonsai artist.

We just bought our first home with Geoff Martin and highly recommend him and The Local Real Estate Group. The entire process was unbelievably smooth, especially for us being first-time home buyers. Geoff was so willing to take the time to explain everything to us in detail and made us feel confident throughout the entire escrow process. The first offer we put in was accepted and we think it was because of Geoff’s excellent expertise and judgment. He never put pressure on us and gave us real and honest answers when asked. He also gave us great recommendations for a lender, inspectors and other vendors. Will gladly refer him to friends and family! Chelsea I
Recently, we had to re-locate from San Francisco to Los Angeles without having any knowledge of the area. We were fortunate to have been referred to Geoff, and without a doubt he made this transition something to look forward to. His expertise and professionalism in all aspects of his work helped us navigate through the ins and outs of finding a place to live. His familiarity to the area proved invaluable in helping us to quickly narrow down where and how we could see ourselves living. Knowing how busy he was, we appreciated his quick responses and ability to make us feel well taken care of and our concerns listened to – before, during and after our move. We were so pleased to have made the connection, and feel lucky to have found exactly what we were looking for with Geoff’s help. We would (& have) recommend Geoff to anyone looking for a place!

For me, selling my home meant saying goodbye to a book of memories and it wasn’t easy to let go. But Geoff’s presence and professionalism made the process far easier to take the next step. He understood my emotional attachments and honored those feelings. For most real estate agents, it’s about for sale signs, the bottom line and numbers. But Geoff treated the process with compassion, follow-through and dedication to the task that went beyond the mere qualifications. Thanks for everything! Sophie-Charlotte B
I would love to write about his excellent service. We got our new house last December and it took more than six months. We checked so many open houses and made few offers before actually getting the one. We had a hard time because of the high competition on the market but Geoff helped us with a smile all the time. He is very professional and good at negotiation. We were very happy to work with him.
Geoff helped us find and move into an amazing townhouse in Angelino Heights. This process was very new to us so we required a lot of communication and handholding, but Geoff was there every step of the way no matter how small the question or request. He was great at putting us in touch with the people we needed to complete the process and was there to hand us the keys with a bottle of champagne when the deed was done (pun intended.) We can't recommend him highly enough!
Working with Geoff was fantastic. He was knowledgable and enthusiastic about the various places we looked (from Highland Park to Atwater Village and Eagle Rock) and he picked up right away on the kind of details we were looking for and most excited by. Navigating the actual purchase, including the voluminous paperwork involved, was also substantially easier with Geoff's guidance and responsiveness. Would heartily recommend to others. Geoff M
Within maybe two weeks of looking Geoff Martin found us our DREAM HOME. Knowing that we knew very little about the process of buying a home, Geoff got right to work and was in constant communication through every step of the way. He knows what he's doing, is an expert on the market, very professional, and is a pleasure to work with. Two thumbs up for Geoff ! Liz S
Geoff was quite literally the dream agent we had been hoping to find before venturing down the path to finding our first home. We had spoken with multiple agents before deciding on Geoff and the decision couldn't have been more clear. Geoff's knowledge of the housing market is second to none and his advice and guidance were spot on. We started the process with zero knowledge of what's involved and Geoff made us feel supported, informed and importantly, in control, at every step of the journey. If you're looking for a new home and you have the opportunity to work with Geoff, consider yourself lucky. Geoff thank you for everything and for turning our dreams into a reality! Steve
Geoff Martin guided me successfully through my first home buying experience in Los Angeles, which can be a frustrating market. He quickly answered my calls, e-mails, and texts even during inconvenient hours. His friendly and upbeat demeanor came in handy during the more stressful times of escrow. I would highly recommend him and his team. Karen
Geoff was the perfect realtor: he helped us find and purchase a home that was everything we were looking for, all the while being responsive, reassuring, and fun to spend time with. We bought in a competitive market and Geoff did an excellent job at negotiating the purchase and various discounts. During the house hunt process he worked diligently to get us listings and meet us at houses we were interested in, to review the pros and cons. Purchasing a house in California takes more paperwork than pretty much anywhere else, and Geoff guided us expertly through that too. I would recommend him to anyone without reservations. Nicola T
Geoff has strong diplomatic and negotiation skills. He can quickly filter out properties that are problematic. That happened when we explored North Hollywood. He has knowledge of many areas of L.A. , not just Atwater Village. He has a good sense of humor. Paul H
