A Team Approach

First Martin Corporation is synonymous with Ann Arbor. Our ties to the community run long and deep. The company was founded in 1968 by William C. (Bill) Martin, and our goal is the same now as it was then: build relationships that stand the test of time.

Our staff operates as a team, leasing, managing and building our own portfolio of properties. We don’t have a lot of layers of management. We’ve worked together long enough that we can discuss a situation and quickly make a decision.

We’re proud of our portfolio of properties which includes some of Ann Arbor’s finest commercial buildings. It also includes build-to-suit sites ready to be developed. We know the Ann Arbor building process intimately and can take your plans and transform them into a building that is exactly right for your needs.

Our portfolio represents our business acumen in property acquisition and development over the past 40 years. We would be honored to show you our properties, and help you find the one that suits your company or client best.

Team Members

Ann Arbor is our home, and Ann Arbor commercial real estate is our market. We want to help you find just the right space in our portfolio of property. We are not a third-party brokerage but we’ll help you in any way we can.

Our goal is to build relationships. Call a team member and get ready for outstanding service. It will be our pleasure to help you.

“The buildings we lease and manage are buildings owned in one way or another by First Martin, so they are managed with a long-term outlook. It makes it easier to provide a high level of service. That day-to-day level of service keeps people coming back to our buildings.”

Mike Martin

“There is not a single property in our portfolio outside of Ann Arbor. We stay within our expertise; that allows us to provide an extraordinary level of service to our Guests.”

“We’re long term players. We have been investing in Ann Arbor for almost 40 years. In the course of that time, we have only sold one building. “Flipping” is not in our vocabulary.”
