Martha Marzolf, ERA Shields/FAC Board

In Colorado Springs, it’s often hard to tell where business life ends and personal life begins. Such is certainly the case with Martha Marzolf.

A highly recognized and successful Realtor, Marzolf moves seamlessly from home tours and listing presentations to community involvement and enjoying life in Colorado Springs. Balance appears to be a way of life for her.

A Springs resident since 1986, she graduated from St. Mary’s College in South Bend, Ind. She vividly remembers the day she found her occupational calling.

“Back in 1997, I walked into (President) Bill Hurt’s office at ERA Shields Real Estate and asked to be part of his team,” she said. “Thankfully, he gave a young gal a try and I have found the most perfect career fit.”

She’s been recognized locally and nationally for her outstanding performance in the industry, winning both the “Top Team’ of Broker Associates” for ERA Shields Real Estate and the “Top Gun Award.”

Said one co-worker of her: “Martha is a polished professional without being slick. She’s a good public citizen, giving much of her time to a variety of causes and improves our overall quality of life.”

Outside the work arena, she shares her passion for the arts as chair of the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center board of trustees. She also spent many years involved with the Junior League where she helped other women become effective volunteers in our community.
