DEVAN & JUSTIN MARTIN
Devan and Justin Martin are the owners of Only Options and R.L. Martin & Co. They have two children, Harris and Mary Dean, and two goldendoodles, Lucy and George! Together, they are passionate about the community of Valdosta and take a "support local" approach to their lifestyle. They are associated with many philanthropic and social organizations.
Devan runs the stores on a daily basis. Her favorite part about her job is interacting with customers because she loves people and she loves pretty things. She also enjoys buying for the stores and planning seasonal events. In her free time, she enjoys playing tennis, traveling, entertaining, and volunteering. Even with her busy schedule, Devan says her biggest priority in life will always be spending time with family and friends.
Justin works full time as a financial advisor at South East Capital Investment Group. He is a buyer for the men's store, and he enjoys helping the customers on Saturdays and holidays. His favorite part about the store is fitting for custom suits. When he is not working, Justin enjoys reading, playing golf, and spending time with his kids.
The R.L. Martin & Co. family expanded in 2014 with the opening of our men's store, R.L. Martin. A full service men's store sitting nicely next to Only Options. R.L. Martin is a nod to Justin's father, who had a long standing career with Belk Hudson before he passed away returning from a buying trip. We hope to continue his legacy of the gentlemen he was.
We attribute our success to the relationships we build with our customers and with the companies we work with, as well as a keen eye for quality fashion pieces. It's an honor to serve the community of Valdosta.
