Martyn’s family settled in Pasadena in 1887, later moving to Los Angeles in the 1890’s. In 1943, Martyn’s family returned to Pasadena where she attended Polytechnic School and Westridge School. She graduated from the Ethel Walker School in Connecticut and Stanford University.

During a business transfer to the East Coast, Martyn entered the real estate industry in 1981 and worked for Smith, Hekker, and Collins in Greenwich, Connecticut. Moving back to Pasadena in 1984, she joined the William Wilson Company. In 1987, she joined Coldwell Banker where she was a consistent member of the President’s Club and President’s Elite. She also became Executive Sales Director at Coldwell Banker Pasadena and the Architectural Director for the San Gabriel Valley. In 2011, Martyn joined deasy/penner as Senior Partner.

Having been transferred across the Country, Martyn is very sympathetic to, and aware of,  the needs of transferees. The first step in working with buyers unfamiliar with our area is “Martyn’s Area Tour.” It is a 2-3 hour drive through the various communities that includes 1-2 houses in their price range, historical data, in-depth school and community information and general neighborhood knowledge. “Oh, you are interested in a Spanish or Mediterranean house? Then we should be looking in the Cal-Tech neighborhood. That is where there is the greatest concentration of that architectural style.”  Her familiarity with neighborhoods, schools and historical knowledge of the area is without parallel.

Community Involvement

Martyn has been an active community volunteer since the mid-1960’s.  She held several Executive Board positions in the Junior League and trained as a “Special Docent” in the Huntington Library, Art Gallery, and Botanical Gardens.

Martyn is a Past-President of the Pasadena La Casita del Arroyo Foundation and currently, serves as Secretary on the Foundation Board.  She also served as President of the Pasadena Garden Club where she received a Garden Club of America Civic Improvement Award (2011) and the Garden Club of America Medal of Merit (2014) for her “dedicated leadership to her Club and Community.”

She is also a past Board member of the Pasadena Beautiful Foundation and serves as an Advisor to the Board.  For the past 10 years, Martyn has been the Pasadena Co-Chair for the Garden Conservancy’s Open Days Program.

Martyn has three grown children, eight grandchildren and is an ardent tennis player.  She serves on several committees at the Valley Hunt Club.

Testimonials

“I would like to commend your firm for an excellent job in selling our home on San Pasqual Street in Pasadena. The marketing plan was well put together and executed consistent with our conversation during the Summer. Everyone in your firm that worked on the project did their job professionally. You put together a good team! In particular, I would like to note the good work of our agent, Martyn Belmont. She exhibited a high standard of ethics, attention to detail, and worked diligently to get the best possible buyer for the house. She also tactfully navigated an unfortunately contentious relationship between me and my ex-wife. I was happy and proud to have her represent us.” ~ Chris Orndorff
“My apologies for my tardy response to your request for a ‘testimonial’. Only now, am I working my way through my pile of papers that have gathered beside my computer. I am pleased to offer the following comments - with some input from Bill, too. Martyn Belmont, a longtime resident of Pasadena, is highly knowledgeable on the residential market in Pasadena and nearby communities. With her extensive contacts, she has up-to date information on properties on the market and frequently knows of properties about to be listed for sale. Martyn is hard-working and a good negotiator with a strong business sense. Based on her experience over the years, she knows legal requirements and building code provisions. She can be extremely helpful to her clients in locating construction companies, roofers, and other home service providers. Martyn is known for her high ethical standards, her diligence, and her loyalty to clients. In truth, Bill and I worked on this together and we are both willing to sign it – if you wish - or one or neither of us. In other words, please use it as you wish!” ~ Claire and Bill Bogaard
