Meet Martha

Martha Gentry

Selling real estate in the beautiful Sandhills of North Carolina is a joy and a challenge to me. Years of selling real estate has given me a strong base of experience and success. However, I realize that in today’s ever more complex real estate environment past experience, no matter how successful, will not be enough to remain competitive. I challenge myself every day to stay on the leading edge of new, state of the art technologies and to give my clients and customers the very best combination of experience and knowledge that will help them reach their real estate goals.”

In order to give my clients superlative service, whether buying or selling, I’ve put together the best real estate team in the Pinehurst/Southern Pines area! Our unique team system insures that each of our clients receives the full attention they need to make their home buying or home selling experience the best they’ve ever had!
