About the Team
When you meet Martha Brown, you feel like you’ve known her your entire life. Martha is not your typical REALTOR. She’s like your best friend helping you achieve a personal goal. She stands by you, guides you, advocates on your behalf, and provides the tools you need to make sound decisions. Among her many strengths is her ability to ask the right questions and listen intently. In doing so she anticipates the needs of her clients and ensures their goals are met in a timely and seamless manner.
Martha and her family are long time Belmont residents and are very involved in the community. Martha has served on numerous committees and boards over the years including as a Brownie Troop leader, Town Meeting Member, soccer coach and one of the original founders of Belmont KidSpace, which to this day remains one of her favorite endeavors. She currently serves on the Executive Board of The Foundation for Belmont Education (FBE) as VP of Fundraising.
In her free time, she enjoys taking long trail walks with Lucy (her extra special canine companion) and getting involved in her kids’ latest hobbies whether it’s sailing, playing rugby, mountain biking or concocting new culinary creations. If she can’t be on the beach, Martha is happiest with a big crowd gathered in her kitchen enjoying good food and laughter.
Prior to selling real estate, Martha developed large business conferences primarily focused on leadership development, organizational performance and sustainability. She holds undergraduate and graduate degrees in Psychology from Michigan State and Boston Universities.
Elena Hanley joined Martha Brown Real Estate in August of 2021 as the Operations Manager and she has been a whirlwind of productivity and good cheer since day one. Her main goal is to ensure every client’s experience is seamless. She brings her years of project and client management experience in the engineering and finance industries to bring a high level of detail, organization, and calm confidence to every sale. Elena manages with a methodical precision and frequent communication with our clients and the larger team including, attorneys, agents, mortgage brokers, fire prevention officers and more!
Outside of the real estate world, you may know Elena as the talented owner of The Curtain Solution. Her beautiful curtains, cushions and pillows are in many of our homes in the Belmont area.
Martha and Elena have known each other since their kids were toddlers and they have spent many years cheering together at a hockey or rugby game or volunteering with the Foundation for Belmont Education.
