Who is Martello

The Martello Group of Companies, founded by Wayne Smithies in 1988, has become one of Western Canada's most integrated real estate service firms. We are proud to be a family business and bring our clients two generations of stability, dependability and personal service.

We fundamentally believe that service excellence begins by treating each of our client's properties as if they were our own. Our team of over 50 managers, accountants, administrators and building operators are emotionally invested in their work, allowing us to create an unmatched level of service excellence.

Giving back is a core part of our values. We support a number of local charities and encourage our clients to support them as well. We are proud that over 75% of our clients contribute to charitable giving alongside us every year.
