Marvin Huffaker / Personal Life
I’ve made Arizona my home since 2001, and I currently live most of the time in Gilbert. Over the years I have become enamored with the beauty of the Arizona back country. I spend quite a bit of time in Flagstaff, Sedona, Prescott, Payson, and other parts of Northern Arizona. I enjoy hiking, off-roading, exploring, and finding new things to see and experience.
I live a fairly minimalist lifestyle, and my office and “work space” is completely mobile. I have been working towards a business/life model where I can just work wherever I happen to be. I find myself taking a lot of work vacations. Since I can provide almost any service and support remotely, I can work from literally anywhere I decide to go.
I have two grown children. My son Austin is working in real estate and learning how to buy, remodel, and sell houses with another family business we own together. The business just sold it’s first fully remodeled home in the Phoenix central corridor.
My daughter Jasmine attends college at NAU in Flagstaff and studies criminology. I work my schedule so that we can spend time together frequently. In fact, I make it a point to be “somewhere” in Northern Arizona at least a couple weeks out of every month, and more if needed to service customers.
I was married for 21 years when my wife Amy Huffaker passed away from Ovarian Cancer in 2015. I’m on the Board of Directors of the Ovarian Cancer Alliance of Arizona, and I sponsor Relay for Life events (American Cancer Society) throughout Arizona and Idaho. I’m an avid BRCA awareness advocate and educate people on the importance of understanding genetic risks and family history of cancers.
