Coccia lauds Martens for work in Secaucus

Since joining Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate | Coccia Realty nearly a year ago, she’s consistently been one of the company’s Secaucus office’s top producers. And now Doreen Martens is once again being recognized as BHGRE| Coccia Realty’s Agent of the Month, this time for July.

Martens says living and working in the same town has made her ability to connect with clients and to close sales much easier.

“I have lived in Secaucus since 1968 and raised my children here,” she said. “I understand Secaucus real estate and the people. I specialize in residential real estate and have also been involved in commercial transactions in all of Hudson, Bergen and parts of Essex and Passaic counties.

“I pride myself on knowing the local market, neighborhoods, schools, zoning and economy. I guide my clients through the complexities of a sales transaction.”

Martens’ success is also attributable to her expertise as a valuator — and she’s quite knowledgeable about Harmon Cove Towers and townhomes, having participated in numerous closings there.

Martens, a 13-year veteran real estate agent, from 2004 to 2010 and again in 2013 won the prestigious New Jersey Association of Realtors Circle of Excellent Sales Award.

But what really sets her apart from other real estate professionals is that for Martens, this is a full-time calling.

“I don’t just dabble in real estate, but I’m someone who practices and am immersed in my career full time,” she said.

Martens is a member of the National Association of Realtors, the Eastern Bergen Board of Realtors, the New Jersey Multiple Listing Service, the Hudson County MLS and the Garden State MLS.
