Marty is a licensed sales representative who has grown up in the real estate industry. “Marty Gordon is simply an outstanding Realtor. As a young family looking for our first home, we were so grateful that Marty took the time to help us find the right one. He is deeply knowledgeable, both about the Kingston market in general and each of the particular homes that we visited with him. Marty was always prompt in responding to our questions and helpful in navigating the home-buying process with us. Living outside of Kingston made buying a home more challenging, but Marty’s hard work and attention to detail made everything run smoothly. We feel so fortunate to have had Marty as our realtor, and we would recommend him very highly to others.” - Jacob and Debra.
