Evelyn Martinez REALTOR® BRE#01898624
I have lived in Bakersfield for 15 years with a 3 year leave to Orange County. Living through the tough economical climate in Kern County has definitely added to my experience in the Real Estate market. Having gone through the different real estate cycles during the past decade has added knowledge, not only on how to weather through these tough cycles but also on how to strategize in order to leverage the current cycle towards our clients’ benefit. I moved to Orange County in 2010 in order to get my real estate license. I realized that I would get the best edge on real estate in a county that not only is affluent but very aggressive in their marketing and negotiating techniques. Learning to work with a highly diversified culture and highly-educated society has also served immensely in bridging gaps between people. My first year in real estate in Irvine, Ca., I sold 9 million dollars in real estate and was a candidate for the Hall of Fame – Rookie of the year award, alongside her sister and partner, Marjorie Martinez. After having 2 successful years in O.C., I decided to move back to Bakersfield in order to establish myself as an experienced real estate agent.
I love people and love to meet the needs of people. I currently serve actively in the community at a local church. My children attend Ronald Reagan Elementary, Warren Junior High, and my eldest is currently enrolled as a Junior at California State University of Bakersfield. My Husband, Ray Martinez, is also an active member of the Community. He is currently a manager for the Cincinnati Reds minor league team, the Arizona Reds, and is stationed in Arizona right now. He currently teaches baseball lessons during the off season at Riverlakes Batting Cages.
