Martha Knapp Named CCIAOR REALTOR® of the Year

Knapp is a broker with Kinlin Grover and is a dedicated leader and volunteer within the Cape and Massachusetts Associations – from Leadership Development Task Force Chair and MAR Board of Director to serving on the Finance and Ombudsman & Citation Policy Committees. As one of our members stated, “Martha is tireless in volunteering her time to uphold the standards of CCIAOR. Her integrity is unrivaled. She is always available to mentor new REALTORS® and to provide assistance to anyone in need. Once Martha took over the MLS Tour in Harwich, we had a renewed organization, a better route structure and an occasional guest speaker for us. I cannot think of a more deserving person for REALTOR® of the Year.”
