    Corey Martin
    Owner | Broker

    My name is Corey Martin. I have been an entrepreneur since the age of 13. I have been owner and operator of a variety of ventures including buying/breaking/selling horses, lawn care, flooring sales and service and nationwide moving. My wife, Courtney, and I began buying "ugly" houses to remodel and keep for rental property in 2005. After pulling many "all nighters", (and actually enjoying it!) I decided to pursue a lifelong goal and get my real estate license in 2008. I worked for a local broker for a few years, but the entrepreneur in me was itching to do more! Seeing a need in my college town for rental management, I went on to get my license to professionally manage property, and finally, I obtained my broker's license and began my own company. I now use my plethora of life skills for running Martin Presence, a Real Estate and Property Management outfit in Ruston, Monroe, and Bossier City, Louisiana. My company manages and maintains properties all across North Louisiana, I belong to the Northeast LA Board of Realtors, Northwest LA Board of Realtors, Institute of Real Estate Management, and I'm just getting started!

    My name is Tomeki Holland. I am single mother with two children, Devin and Bryce. I have a younger sister and a half brother.I have worked with Martin Presence for 5 years. I was a tenant when I met Corey Martin, and as time went by I started to do janitorial work for him and his company as a part time job. After about two years, Corey offered me a job in the office just to help out as needed. I started out answering phones and general questions. After about 3 months, I started working with accounts payable. Now I have become the Branch Director for the Ruston location, and I am so excited to be a part of Martin Presence. I am blessed to have this opportunity and I will do my best to make sure that I do a good job.

    My name is Sarah Allen, I am married with one child. I live in Ruston, LA. I became a Realtor in 2010. I had always wanted to be in Real Estate, my love of houses came at an early age. While working for a different brokerage, I met Corey and began helping with some of the property management on the side. He had only a handful of houses that he managed at that time. In 2012, when Corey opened the Ruston office, I started working full time with the property management side. Whether someone is buying or renting, I love helping clients find a house that they love.

I have known Corey for several years from going to Emmanuel Baptist Church together.
