San Diego’s Favorite Son is exactly what one thinks when one meets Martin Correia. Having been born and raised in “America’s Finest City,” he lives and breathes all that it has to offer by doing what he does best making San Diego a reality for those that are looking to live within this wonderful city!
As Principal of MMC Real Estate, Martin leads “the” group of real estate consultants better known as San Diego’s Favorite Team. He prides himself on his personal service where a majority of his business comes from referrals and repeat clients. Spoiling his clients is something Martin loves doing while providing sound real estate advice and guiding them through every step of the process. Not looking to meet expectations but exceeding them time after time. Having run a global sales division for a 100 million-dollar software company, allows him to excel with superior negotiation skills in getting the most out of every transaction. As a testament to his deep understanding of the real estate markets, Martin lectures at the USC School of Marshall on data analytics. He also lectured on data analytics at UCSD.
San Diego’s Favorite Team focuses on the city as a whole knowing that buyers need to be directed to communities that best fit their needs, not the area of a specific real estate agent’s backyard. For sellers, Martin is on the cutting edge of marketing by sharing with his clients that San Diego is to no longer be marketed “locally but globally”. As result, San Diego’s Favorite Team specializes in corporate relocation providing corporations with the support they need for their employees. This includes developing a strategy that allows them to be exposed to several options based on their needs assessment. Both business units have shared benefits making this value proposition a match made in real estate heaven.
The accolades support his hard work having been selected Rookie of the Year in each brokerage he’s worked under and continues to soar today. Recently, he was selected as one of the Top 10 International real estate agents. As a luxury specialist, Martin seeks to provide a luxury approach to all of his clients without being less aware of the value of the home but more importantly the value of the client!
Lastly, Martin’s involvement in the community continues to be his ultimate satisfaction in giving back to a city that is so dear to him. Martin’s parents were very influential in setting an example of the importance of helping those that truly need support. That’s why he has either led or taken part in over 12 Board of Directorships over this tenure, most recently as a founding board member for Creating First Impressions, focused on children that need direction as they start life after high school.
He is also currently serving as ex-President of Cathedral Catholic High School or University of San Diego High School Alumni and current President of Trojan Club of San Diego which focuses on supporting students attending the University of Southern California while participating in athletics. Often quoted by Martin: “it’s not the gift that we give but what we share; for the gift without the giver is bare!”
Martin’s family fills out his remaining time with his wife, Dominica, as they enjoy spending time with their son, Martin Jr. Would that make him San Diego’s Favorite Son’s Son?
