Curtis Martin - Broker Owner
In January 2005, I embarked on a journey in the realm of real estate, equipped with a marketing degree and two decades of sales experience. A significant milestone arrived in 2008 when I secured my broker license. This accomplishment set the stage for an even greater stride in January 2012, as I assumed ownership of RE/MAX Independence Realty, cementing my role as both broker and owner.
My engagement in the industry is underscored by my affiliations and contributions:
- A proud member of the Northeast Iowa Regional Board of Realtors, offering valuable insights and perspectives.
- A former Director of the Northeast Iowa Regional Board of Realtors, where I contributed to shaping the course of our profession.
- An active participant in the Iowa Association of Realtors, fostering connections and keeping abreast of industry trends.
- A dedicated member of the National Association of Realtors, standing alongside fellow professionals on a national scale.
- An engaged presence within the Independence Area Chamber of Commerce, collaborating to enhance our local business landscape.
Beyond my professional pursuits, I am deeply rooted in Independence, a community I've called home throughout my life. My personal interests include golf, snowmobiling, and dirt track racing—a passion that has not only brought me joy but has also yielded two national championships. For over three decades, I've masterfully led a championship team in this exhilarating field.
My family and I strongly believe in giving back, actively supporting the Independence Community School District. Overall, my career in real estate, combined with my passion for community engagement and personal interests, has shaped me into a well-rounded individual dedicated to the growth and prosperity of Independence and Buchanan County residents.
