Tenacity and determination combine to create a tireless work ethic that produces results- that’s the platform of Fredericka Martin and that’s what makes her a top producing Realtor year after year.
Martin’s impressive list of distinctions and accolades from various professional groups and peers may precede her but these achievements have also been gained by her vibrant personality and the need to serve others; her compassion runs deep and found its stride in the intricacies of selling bank owned properties. Helping local families realize their dream of home ownership at an affordable price, and negotiating this reality with banking institutions across the country has launched Martin as one of the premier REO specialists in Shasta & Tehama County averaging more than 100 sales each year in this category alone.
With a previous background in title and escrow, Martin took a 25 year skill set and applied it to real estate in 1998 when she and her husband Wayne opened their own brokerage, Real Estate 1, in Sacramento, CA. Within two years, Martin emerged as a leading sales agent for the Metroplex area and later championed this talent with the opening of a Windermere franchise in Redding, CA in 2011.
With community involvement as the cornerstone of the Seattle based real estate firm, the Windermere franchise is a perfect complement to Martin’s philanthropic efforts and her commitment to the residents of the North State.
Because of his ability to keenly focus on and understand his client’s wants and desires, Wayne has been a source of real estate solutions for over four decades. Growing up in Redding in a real estate lending, sales, construction and development family, gave Wayne an in-depth understanding of the ever-shifting complexities of real estate markets and property transactions.
Seeing enormous opportunity and possessing an expansive spirit, Wayne relocated to Pebble Beach, California in 1981. He became a sought after real estate project consultant, design and build commercial contractor and developer in the Monterey Peninsula. Wayne successfully completed over twenty real estate projects within ten years. His projects included luxury homes, residential subdivisions, apartment complexes, medical offices, retail buildings, and a hospitality project on the dunes of coastal California.
In 1997 Wayne moved to the Sacramento area to be close to family and established, with his wife Fredericka, Real Estate 1. Within three years Wayne and Fredericka (Freddie) were averaging over 100 transactions per year; placing them as top producing Realtors in the Sacramento and surrounding area.
Wayne and Freddie missed Shasta County’s natural beauty; so in 2003 they moved back to their origins.
