Matt Martin

After graduating from university, I entered the banking sector with HSBC, but soon realised that banking was just not for me!

My first role in property was working as a Property Manager for General Accident Property Services. It was the late nineties and the rental market in the UK was just about to take off. I dealt with dripping taps to faulty boilers and washing machines for a few years, before being asked by General Accident to Manage a Lettings Call Centre, which I did for a further 18 months

After 3 years working within the support aspect of the property industry, I decided it was time to try my hand at front end sales. I therefore took over the management of an Agency Branch in Surbiton where I established a successful business from 2002-2007.

In 2007 I was appointed as Area Manager for a national corporate brand and was responsible for a network of 12 offices initially that grew to 30 offices and by 2011 I was Divisional Director in charge of a £4 Million income stream and 80 staff.

I set up Ivy Gate in 2012 with my business partners Jason and Stuart and have worked tirelessly building a brand and a new business since then. In 2017 Jason moved on and i took over the role of Managing Director for Ivy Gate.

I moved from New Malden to Old Malden in 2018 with my wife and two children and i am very community minded. I have sponsored numerous local schools, sports events/clubs, local football teams, river cleans. Engaging with the local community is really important to me.

Hidden Talents

I have passion for DIY and have spent the last two years since i moved, renovating the house.

If I Won The Lottery

I would take my family away for a very long holiday initially. I would then look at moving to a larger family home and use some of the money to renovate it and possibly buying a holiday home in Salcombe (where we go as a family every year). I would also invest some in the many needed areas within the community.

When I'm Not Working

I spend as much time as possible with wife and two young daughters and we love to spend time in Salcombe in Devon, a beautiful environment to spend time together as a family.. I am a golf enthusiast and like to get out to play every week if i can. My other passion is Football and have season tickets for Arsenal, so clearly the last few years have been generally disappointing on that front.
