“I’ve come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that’s as unique as a fingerprint – and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you.”
Martin works exclusively with clients through his home styling company, The WOW Factor!, Inc., where he specializes in one-day makeovers and working with a minimal budget to achieve the decorator look for less! He draws on his keen eye for design, experience as a visual merchandiser, and savvy shopping skills to help homeowners realize that a beautifully-decorated space can be within their reach.
