Former Packers coaches, players benefit from hot housing market

LEDGEVIEW – Former Packers coach Ruvell Martin sold his house in Ledgeview for $15,100 more than the asking price, a sign that the Wisconsin housing market continues to be hot.

Martin listed the house at 3957 Garrett St. for $679,900 in March. It sold for $695,000, according to Brown County land records. He bought the house in May 2020 for $545,000, according to county records.

Martin is now CEO of Costello Real Estate & Investments in Charlotte, NC

The Packers hired Martin, a former player, as a coach through an NFL diversity fellowship program, a vocational tool to increase the number of full-time minority coaches. He chose to leave the Packers staff at the end of the 2021 season.

Martin was a teammate of Packers head coach Matt LaFleur at Saginaw Valley State University in Michigan. A wide receiver, he played for the Packers from 2005-2008. He played 41 games for the Packers, catching 52 passes for 749 yards and six touchdowns.

He later played for the San Diego Chargers, St. Louis Rams, Seattle Seahawks and Buffalo Bills in the NFL. He also played for the Amsterdam Admirals in 2005 and was named All-NFL Europe.
