Susan Martin has moved around…a lot, from Texas, Tennessee, Mississippi and California to Florida and Grand Cayman Island. But in 1992, when she and her family moved to Branson, she found the place she wanted to settle in and call home. She understands what draws people to this area, and knows how to show it to its best advantage.
Upon retiring from a successful entertaining career, Susan went behind the camera. In addition to writing and producing award-winning commercials and documentaries, she also worked as a location scout finding the perfect settings for numerous movies and television productions. After moving to Branson with her husband and young family, she became involved with community, civic and non-profit organizations including board membership for the area’s Habitat for Humanity. When the organization’s director position became vacant, the board asked Susan to take the job. 24 years and 32 homes built and/or refurbished later she’s still an integral part of the organization (which is now called Mountain Country Homes of Hope) and its spin-off organization, ReBuilding Hope for Seniors. Her Master’s degree in Marketing and Fundraising undoubtedly helped her efforts in providing over 50 families with the opportunity of owning a home of their own.
Susan loves, loves, LOVES to landscape and garden (and holds advanced certifications in both disciplines). She devours British murder mysteries, WW II history, and spy novels. Susan has written and published two cookbooks, and danced with both the Houston Jazz Company and the Houston Ballet Company. She has her own power tools and knows how to use them!
