    After growing up in St. Louis, Missouri and attending the University of Missouri for two years, I packed up my bags and car and headed west to California. I came to San Luis Obispo in 1974 knowing absolutely no one, transferring to Cal Poly to finish college. I graduated from the School of Agriculture with a Batchelor of Science Degree in Environmental Horticultural Sciences in 1976. I fell in love with San Luis Obispo while at Cal Poly and have never left. A couple years prior to moving to SLO I fell in love with my wife, Julie, whom I met on a blind date while attending the University of Missouri. We have been in SLO for over forty years and have raised our family here. We also have had two foreign exchange students live with us for a school year, one in 1997/98 and the other in 2003/04 These were wonderful experiences and both have become part of our family and lives. It is really special to have a "son" in Argentina and a "daughter" in Turkey. We have traveled to both countries to meet and travel with both of their families. My personal interests include golf, gardening, camping, hiking, and traveling. I also have enjoyed volunteering for local community organizations over the years, including our local YMCA, Special Olympics and SLO High School 24 Hour Relay Challenge Fundraiser, as well as supporting city cleanup efforts and the Land Conservancy of San Luis Obispo County. I have been investing in real estate in SLO County for years and have a well rounded knowledge of our market. This experience helps me find clients what they need, whether they're looking for a primary residence, a second home or an investment property. I believe in building friendly, honest relationships and providing excellent service to my clients for years to come.and I will probably throw in a little fun along the way. Bachelor of Science Degree, 1976. Environmental Horticultural Sciences, School of Agriculture, California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly) San Luis Obispo, CA

    My Client Testimonials

    Steve Martin was very patient with us as it took months for us to find a house we liked in a very tight market. After the closing, he went above and beyond to help with our additional questions about the house. Steve is a very pleasant person, easy to talk to, and knows the area well. We recommend him to others. ~ Tim and Alice San Luis Obispo
    No messing around or wasting time with Steve. Very professional with a a fun personality. Sold the property for top dollar and continued to provide a very smooth escrow period. ~ Jay Sundher . Malibu California
    Steve Martin knew my wife and I were interested in possibly moving if the perfect house appeared, but we were also resigned to beginning a major rehab in our current house. Steve found the listing we eventually closed on two weeks before our demo started. The house was on the market for one day when Steve emailed us about it. We saw it a few hours later and the listing was exactly what my wife and I had been holding out for. The house turned out to be a very popular property, but because of Steve's hustle and knowledge of the market -- letting us know this property was a very good value considering the square footage, neighborhood and comps -- we were able to submit the first offer and I firmly believe that played a huge role in our offer being accepted, in addition to Steve emphasizing to the seller's agent that we were a local family with young children. Steve came through for us in the biggest way and we are using him as our agent when we put our current house on the market early next year. My wife and I would highly recommend Steve Martin and are very grateful to him that we now have our dream house. ~ McCormick O'Meara San Luis Obispo
    Ill use you again for any real estate needs ~ Justin Schenk Morro bay
    Steve was excellent to work with on this sale. His responsiveness helped to expedite the process, while avoiding potential pitfalls. I would certainly work with him again. ~ Erik, San Luis Obispo
    Steve Martin was very easy to work with. He answered all of our questions and kept us updated on the progress of the sale of our home. He was especially skillful in the negotiations between us and the buyers. He helped us through the process and consistently followed up on all our requests. We feel that Steve met all of our needs in the selling of our home. ~ Ken Mendonca, Brentwood California
    Steve Martin made it a professional, personable, friendly and timely real estate transaction. Particularly appreciated Steve's attention to detail and follow-up on all documents/ procedures critical to the sale. We had confidence in his skills, given a personal referral and his knowledge of/ experience in and around SLO. Thank you, Steve! ~ Judy & John, Cupertino
    Steve was aggressive in finding us a property... that's good. He was the first to notify us of new listings of interest so we were able to see them fast in our tight market. We dropped two other agents who had contacted us from our open house visits, in favor of Steve because he was so quick to identify new properties. ~ John Ursoleo/Los Osos
    I walked into the office and he was working the floor. He sent me a couple listings that night, and we looked at one the following day, for the house we ultimately wound up buying. Steve was always available. I never waited more than an hour or two for a call or email to be returned, and no question was too ridiculous or out-there for him to answer. Steve was phenomenal -- he's the reason why you use a real estate agent. He caught every tiny detail, so we knew all along we were in good hands. I really can't imagine how our home purchase could have gone any more smoothly, and it's in large part due to Steve. ~ Michael Milch, Los Osos
