About

Professional Summary

As a Vice President, I specialize in retail and land brokerage, representing tenants of various sizes in the retail sector. My strong communication skills and personal interaction enable me to acclimate to each client’s individual style and business requirements, while successfully guiding the transaction. I have worked with multiple tenants to roll out new concepts and grow existing ones in Minnesota; providing the market knowledge and research needed to garner long term success. I have completed over 2.1 million square feet in transactions, with a total consideration of over $156 million. 

Since joining Welsh 14 years ago, I have worked with landlords, tenants, developers, brokers and investors to provide consultation services including client representation, site selection and evaluation, build-to-suit, project management, asset valuation and portfolio services.  I use my experience and a relationship-based approach to accomplish each of my client’s specific needs while striving to exceed all of their expectations. 

The vast majority of my business comes through referrals from trusted friends and colleagues in the industry, as well as present and past clients. My colleagues know that I will go the extra mile for all of myclients.

Testimonials:

“Sara has been such a pleasure to work with as we expand Chick-fil-A in MSP.  Her knowledge, capacity, influence and tenacity have impressed many within our company.  We have comfort knowing that Sara is part of our team and have the utmost confidence that she will continue to find great locations to build the Chick-fil-A brand and serve the customers of these great cities.”

Lynmarie Eade & Pete Abernathy | Chick-fil-A

“Sara Martin and her retail team have the best qualities an institutional owner could want in a retail leasing broker. They know the market thoroughly and are very responsive, organized, and creative. They have stellar communication skills; and are persuasive but tough in an appropriate manner.  Most importantly, they think like an owner. I highly recommend Sara Martin and her leasing team.”

Lexi E.M. Moriarty | AEW Capital Management, L.P.

“Sara Martin as been great to work with, along with her team. I have been more than satisfied with knowledge, energy level and their professional approach.  We have worked with some of the market’s larger agents over the past thirty years. I would recommend Sara and her associates to anyone who has space for lease in this market. Our centers are nearly 100% leased thanks to their efforts!”
