Thinking of Buying Real Estate?

Helping Buyers make their real estate dreams a reality on Martha's Vineyard

Martha’s Vineyard is one of the most desirable real estate markets, and I know that navigating the buying process can seem challenging. However, with my expertise, breadth of local knowledge on each of our six towns (Edgartown, Oak Bluffs, vineyard Haven, West Tisbury, Chilmark and Aquinnah), and national network that Compass offers, you are in dedicated and trustworthy hands.
I will guide and advise you during every step of the buying process. Let me show you why I’m the right agent for you.


The Aquinnah Cliffs are a stunning display of Mother Nature’s beauty! Located on the Western most portion of the Vineyard, Aquinnah’s topography and rich native American Culture is still thriving today.

Have Questions About Buying?

Check out our FAQs for buying real estate on Martha's Vineyard

A conventional loan down payment is usually 20% of the sales price, but other types of financing require as little as 3.5% to 15%. A mortgage lender can tell you what types of loans you qualify for.

Call your buyer’s agent: the agent you are working with to find your home. It’s best that you work with one real estate agent throughout your search because that person learns what you like and dislike and will invest a lot of time vetting properties for you. That person also represents your best interests only. When you call the agent advertising the home, you are dealing with the seller’s agent, so, while they can assist you, they are also trying to get the best price for the seller.

No, you don’t pay any fees to your Realtor® as a Buyer! The Seller will agree upon a commission percentage with their Realtor® at the time of signing the contract.

Under contract means that all parties have agreed on terms, have signed the contract, and the signed contract has been delivered to both buyer and seller. Payment of the escrow deposit is expected but is not a requirement to make a binding contract.

The escrow money, escrow deposit, or good faith deposit is money that is offered with an offer, or as soon as an offer is accepted, to show the seller that you are serious about moving forward with the purchase of the home. Because you forfeit this deposit if you back out of the purchase for any reason not allowed for in the contract, the larger the escrow deposit, the more seriously your offer is taken.
