Our Team

Charlie Martens – Qualifying Broker

Growing up in Monroe and Wilcox Counties, land and timber has always been an important part of my life. My family has worked and depended on the lands of this region for many generations. After graduating from the University of Alabama in 2003, I accepted a sales position with a national lumber company in Daphne, AL. This was an excellent opportunity for me to develop many lasting relationships and see other parts of this great country.

In 2009, the creation of Southern Investment Properties gave me the opportunity to come home. Today I am doing what I dearly love. I specialize in setting up and finding both recreational and timberland tracts for my clients. I take pride in helping you find a piece of property that you and your family can enjoy for many years to come.

Currently, I live in Monroeville with my wife, Bradley, and our two boys, Charlie and Harrison.

In today’s real estate market, it is essential to follow recent land sales and timber values. These numbers give us a gauge on what property is worth – TODAY.

Sammy Rinehart – Associate Broker

I was born and raised in Perry County Alabama and enjoy a positive relationship with the people I call my neighbors. I am a lifelong outdoorsman enjoying deer and turkey hunting in what I consider some of the prime hunting land in Alabama. But first of all, I enjoy my daughters and grandchildren and attending the Marion Methodist Church.

Being in the real estate land business since 1999 and owning my own real estate company for the past nine years, I believe that I can continue to serve the needs of my buyers and sellers and enjoy making lifetime friendships with them. Please feel free to contact me. If it’s in Perry County, I can find what you are looking for.
