Episode 17: Martin Newman, Condos & Cars, Town Real Estate, The Foundation, The Beginning, The Formative Years

Real Takk Podcast

If you don’t ask, you’ll never know. not to sound cliche, but nothing is ever handed out. In most of any business,  some things aren’t even in the open for you to grab in the first place.   You have to seek it out and put yourself out there. In an industry where every listing, buyer, client, and business opportunity is extremely coveted, a high level of hustle is always required at any stage in your career. Who knows where Marty would have been right now if he didn’t make an effort to gather courage to get in front of a camera and create “Condos & Cars with Martin Newman”. The moral of the story is, whatever you don’t do, won’t come to life. You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take. What other metaphors do you need?  It’s so universal because it’s so true. So be bold, spark that conversation, and show that enthusiasm that you have. Martin & I met about 9 years ago in 2011 at Town residential.  We were in our mid 20’s, both hustling our exclusive rental listings, running up walk ups, and figuring out ways on growing our business.  Williamsburg wasn’t much of a neighborhood then, and the Hudson Yards was still a vacant parking lot for the MTA trains.  Martin hails from CT, and moved to NYC after graduating Southern CT state university.  His love for real estate began in his late teens after operating his own property management business. He joined Compass in 2018, and recently founded his own social media channel condos and cars.  He lives in the west village with his girlfriend, but has also lived in North Williamsburg, South Williamsburg, & Union Square.
