Wellsco Realty

John P. Wells, Broker Owner

I’ve worked in real estate for over 12 years. I’ve planned communities, designed and built homes, and represented countless buyers in their quest for the best home for their needs.

The keys to my success include working with top notch professionals to help you plan your financing, inspect your prospective purchase and protect your legal interests.

Also on the listing side, the best marketing, stagers, writers and photographers are essential.  My reviews on Zillow are from true clients. I look forward to speaking with you!

Marisa Stevens, Partner/Realtor, Marketing, Public Relations

Marisa-150x150I have been a greater Boston resident for many years and love living close by to such a vibrant and diverse city. This area which is so close to world class universities, hospitals and Silicon Valley East is unmatched in many ways.  In addition the proximity to skiing, beaches and boating makes the picture complete for work/life balance.

My background in large advertising and PR agencies allows me to quickly see the potential in properties and how they may best be developed and showcased.  I specialize in equestrian properties, rehab projects and first home buyers.

Stephen Martin, Partner/Realtor

Steve MartinSteve is a success-driven marketing entrepreneur with a diverse background ranging from real estate sales and mortgage financing to consulting and development projects to marketing and branding and even launching a socially responsible clothing line and fundraising company. Steve has a keen marketing and business sense and is always looking for ways to add value for his clients. He has a genuine passion for helping others succeed and making a positive difference. As a real estate agent, he is committed to providing exceptional value and customer service and goes above and beyond for his clients.

Steve is a graduate of Norwich University, the nation’s oldest private military college. He earned his B.S. in Business & Finance. Upon graduating, he began his career in the Southern California real estate market where he immediately made a name for himself as the “go to” broker for locating undervalued investment properties. A year later, he founded Sell My Own Real Estate.Com, an online real estate platform where home owners could list and sell their own property, which he later sold to Blue Diamond Mortgage, LLC.

Upon moving back to Boston, Steve went on to be a top producer at New England’s largest mortgage lender and eventually left to start up, SJ Martin Consulting and Development Co. where his “out of the box” real estate investment strategies featured him on CBS Channel 4 news. In 2008, Steve was given a once in a lifetime opportunity to assist in the makeover of Fenway Park, a $285+ million renovation project that included additional seating in both Left & Right Field.

In 2010, inspired by a strong desire to do something bigger than himself, he created and founded the b Positive Project brand. A socially responsible t-shirt and apparel company that hosted and sponsored well over 500+ fundraising events. The company’s mission, positive attitude and loyal followers helped raise over $100k for hundreds of non-profits throughout New England. Steve later sold the company in 2015.

Steve services Boston & the North Shore and primarily works with people looking to buy and sell investment property.

When he’s not listing property or showing property, he can be seen in Amesbury where he lives with his fiancé and 3 children. He runs, coaches youth football, surfs, hikes, and likes to relax with his family.
