Martín Rodriguez

My story is not much different than most in my community. As a child, I had the blessing of being raised in multiple cultures. Early on I learned the value of collaboration and the meaning of humanity. As an immigrant from Argentina and a very proud New Yorker my loyalty is deeply rooted into the community I live in. I am a direct reflection of my multicultural surroundings. English is my primary language however I am fluent in Spanish and basic Italian.

I have a servant’s heart and a passion for customer service and also love to win. I graduated from The State University College at Oneonta where I played soccer. My love for people attracted me to my degree which is in Food Science with a concentration in Hotel and Restaurant management.

After graduating I went on to work for Corporate America for 5 years where I perfected and enhanced my already extensive background in customer service and sales. I had the opportunity to oversee the Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Alamo Rental and National Car Rental brands at the Westchester County Airport. There I continued to win and excelled at dealing with clients from all over the world. 

Since joining the team at United Real Estate I have had the pleasure of working with buyers and renters in my local community and all over Westchester. I pride myself in my ability to help anyone but more importantly those who face the most opposition. I want to be known as the #1 Rental Agent in my local community

I am a member of the Freemasons of the State of New York. I am Master Mason and Royal Arch Mason of Oneonta Lodge 466. I behave with an upright moral compass and believe that honesty and integrity are the foundation to success. I have a strict code of ethics and believe that every person has the responsibility to behave honorably in everything he does. Freemasonry is devoted to the promotion of the welfare and happiness of all mankind and so am I.

As a realtor I combine my passion for people, community and customer service into everything I do. If you would like to work together, please reach out! I look forward to hearing from you.

I remember purchasing my “fixer upper” home in the lake Peekskill area in 1993. The house and property required a great deal of work but in time, became fully updated and home to my 5 children. It was an exciting time but also a big undertaking. The process was a huge learning experience that I am grateful for because it gave me first hand look into what to consider when purchasing along for a knack for design and improvement. This experience fostered my interest in helping others also find and create their “home base” whether the property is move in ready or needs a bit of work.

Along with NY, I hold a Connecticut Real Estate license. I don’t mind taking a road trip if you would like to explore new territories. Most important to me is making you happy. I am patient and listen to my clients wants and needs and strive to ensure that the home buying or selling process is as fun, easy and stress free as possible for you. My clients can count on me anytime of the day. I promise you commitment and integrity along with my United Real Estate team who are equipped to handle all of your needs and bring you vast knowledge and resources to help you. No matter what time of real estate transaction you are looking into, I would love to be there to help guide you through you journey.

"As a novice In the real estate process, I was extremely happy with Mr. Schunk and his team of associates. Not only are they knowledge but also helpful with all the details involved in selling a house. If you are looking for a real estate company that answers the phone, or returns calls in a timely fashion this is who you need to hire. The human touch and attention to details is what I was so impressed with. They sold my house in two days, and made the rest of the process flawless."

  -Amy Honey, Client

"Mr. Nick Schunk was both our buying and selling agent during the 2019 cycle. His expertise in the industry was very broad with a super detailed knowledge of the regional market. That saved time and got us where we were going with both search and pricing. In specific instances during our work, Nick demonstrated much needed tenacity with prospective partners and was an honest purveyor of info, both good and bad. All in all, this was a very positive experience."

  -Steven Friedman, Client

"Had a great experience with James. We worked with him for both the sale of our co-op and the purchase of our home. We were walked through the process and informed every step of the way. He was always available to answer questions. Very knowledgeable and helpful. Would definitely recommend! "

  -Steven Salvatore, Client

"Bill was amazing to work with. Super knowledgeable, professional, and punctual. We ended up putting in an offer in on the third house he showed us, which was accepted two days later. Throughout the whole process he gave sage advice, shared all of of his great contacts, and answered my many questions. A class act, from start to finish (& I'm not easily impressed!). If you're looking to buy or sell your house, you would be lucky to work with Bill."
