Kyle Martin is a performance-driven commercial real estate broker specializing in tenant representation and is in the process of starting his own brokerage firm in the Washington D.C. Metro Area. Offering more than a decade of comprehensive negotiation experience, he provides extensive financial and analytical skills as well as the ability to direct complex projects from conception to post-implementation.
As part of his many daily tasks, Kyle runs point on transactions and oversees business development activities, but his most integral responsibilities are account management and client relations. After completing all planning phases, Kyle surveys local properties while leveraging his many real estate contacts to investigate off-market opportunities. He then commences negotiations with multiple landlords in order to generate leverage while surfacing the best options for his clients. Kyle is involved in every stage of the transaction including comprehensively reviewing and negotiating the lease document prior to execution.
Kyle began his career at The Ezra Company, a boutique firm on K Street that recently was acquired by Avison Young. Although he serves a variety of clients, Kyle developed his book of business exclusively representing tenants leasing or purchasing buildings rather than representing landlords. He is proud to represent such clients as Washington Gas, The National Press Club, McLean Bible Church, and Amen Clinics along with many other notable firms.
Like every successful broker, he has an in-depth level of knowledge as well as an impressive skillset, but it is his commitment to ethics and hard work that sets him apart from the competition. Kyle puts his clients above all else and believes in establishing long term relationships. “While The Ezra Company was in the process of being sold it was a very uncertain time for my business. However, my team retained all of our clients through the transition and for me that was the highest compliment,” he says.
Kyle recognized his passion for real estate early in life. The boutique style brokerage firm was well-known for its ability to compete for large accounts and notable clientele, and Kyle was determined to become a part of that legacy. Immediately after graduating from George Mason University with a bachelor’s degree in finance, Kyle obtained his real estate license and began canvassing for new business at Ezra. He procured his first client within a few weeks, Chicago Title Insurance Company, which was owned by Fidelity National Financial, a publicly traded company. It was a major client, a phenomenal start to his career and Kyle has done multiple transactions with FNF since. Kyle continued to bring in new business, and by his third year, established himself as a known commodity in the commercial real estate market. In his time at Ezra he also received recognition of his success in the form of Rising Star, Work Ethic, and Outstanding Performance awards.
Kyle’s team was acquired, but Kyle, while offered a position, decided not to move forward with them. He is committed to his own independent boutique style of tenant representation, “Even in a very uncertain time everything has fallen into place for me. 2020 has been my best year yet,” Kyle states.
