Another interesting piece in the press of a next generation who left but came back to the business and in her own words was always destined to do so.
For more than 65 years a family-owned business has been selling real estate in Pearl River County. Broker Martha Ford said her grandfather established the business in 1949, eventually it passed to her father, and her through the years. “I always knew I was going to sell real estate,” Ford said. Ford said she has been a licensed Realtor since 1984, after which time she traveled to Jackson and worked as an appraiser and then to Houston, Texas to manage homeowner associations and apartment complexes.
