Youngest-ever NAEA president aims to raise organisation's profile

Martyn Baum has been appointed as youngest-ever president of the National Association of Estate Agents, with a pledge that he will aim to make the organisation and its standards better known by the general public.

Baum started his career in property 16 years ago as a trainee at an independent estate agency firm in Loughborough; he became an equity partner nine years later. 

He then joined Hartley’s Estate Agents to launch a new start office, before becoming a managing partner. He is currently sales partner at independent Loughborough firm, AJR, where he takes what he calls “a hands-on role” talking to vendors and buyers. 


Baum’s role formally includes promoting the NAEA and its standards, representing member agents, with responsibilities including speaking at NAEA regional meetings and local conferences.

“I am proud of what the NAEA stands for and the fact that members have chosen to sign up to the code of conduct. We need to continue to spread the word of the association far and wide. I will continue to increase the number of regional conferences and will aim to increase public awareness of the organisation” he says.

    Another year, another president. Good luck to Martyn, anything to boost the profile of the NAEA will always be a good thing.

    Good to see a young president given the opportunity. Here at Kings we're proud of our NAEA membership and I'm pleased to see Martyn's comments about 'spreading the word' of the association. For me, this is the key role of the NAEA, working to increase visibility of hard-working agents to the general public. Anything Martyn can bring to this side of the job will be greatly beneficial.

    Great news and congratulations to the new President. Hopefully he’ll be able to reverse the rapid decline in the public’s awareness of NAEA and resist increases in subs.
