A long-time Iowa City resident, Phoebe Martin is a proud third-generation graduate of Iowa City High School. After high school, Phoebe traveled extensively. She eventually found her way to Chicago, where she went to school and worked for many years as the Program Coordinator at the Cabrini Green Tutoring Program and then as Education Director of the Daniel Murphy Scholarship Foundation.
After many adventures, including walking across the north of Spain and hot air ballooning over Tanzania, she returned to Iowa City where she met and married Andy Martin. They have two children, Dexter & Isaak. Before starting her Real Estate career, Phoebe and her husband started Martin Construction, focusing on remodels, repairs, and additions. Phoebe and Andy are active members of the Home Builders Association (HBA), raising money for scholarships for area high school students looking to continue their education related to the housing industry.
Now, as a Licensed Realtor and owner with Blank and McCune, The Real Estate Company, she brings more than ten years of experience in the housing industry and her boundless energy and passion for serving buyers and sellers with her.
Phoebe continues to love working with youth, and it is important to her that she gives back to the community which so generously supports both her businesses. She formerly sat on the Board of Trustees for Willowwind School, and she was a former committee member on the Board of Directors for United Action for Youth, including the Festival of Flowers Committee and the Community Youth Leadership Program. Phoebe started a networking group for local women business owners. She serves on the United Way's Power of the Purse fundraising committee. She is also a commissioner on the Planning and Zoning Commission of Iowa City and the Board of Review for the Iowa City Assessors. She serves on the steering committee of the Strengthen Grow Evolve campaign, where she fosters the greatest small city for the arts and raises capital funding for the Englert Theatre and FilmScene.
"Phoebe has been amazing to work with! She helped us find the perfect home and sell our old home. She and her team were excellent at marketing our home, with regular open houses and creative strategies to make sure it was seen by as many agents and prospective buyers as possible. She is trustworthy, attentive and fun to work with! I highly recommend her."

"Phoebe was our realtor when we bought our first home. She is passionate and dedicated with deep expertise. As a first time buyer what I most appreciated was her expertise in renovation to guide the buying process. She helped us see each home as it is, but also see what it might be. As we viewed properties, she could help us view things of concern. She could guide us when we had ideas for tweaking the house to have a sense of what might be affordable renovations and which ones were cost prohibitive dreams for the far future. That allowed us to make the best choice for a house that we could be pleased with in the short term so that we could save and target reasonable tweaks to fix known problems and get it closer to our ideal."

"A year ago, my husband and I wanted to begin looking for our first home. We were experts in renting places, but knew absolutely nothing about buying a home. That is, until I met Phoebe. I couldn't have asked for a more professional, charismatic, or respectful real estate agent. Not only did she help us find the perfect home on our budget, but she ensured we were educated on those important questions I would've never thought to ask. Phoebe truly takes the stress out of buying a home."
