What brought me to the Vineyard and why did you stay?
I was born and raised on the Vineyard so this beautiful island is home to me. I moved off for college and lived in both Fort Lauderdale, FL and Greenwich, CT for awhile after. Up until last March I was living in CT in transition with jobs and was approached with an job opportunity, on the Vineyard. As much as I loved where I was living and being in the “real world” I had greatly missed home and being close to my family, whom all reside on the vineyard year round. So my decision wasn’t too difficult to make. Theres no place like I home, I guess…
What does your perfect Vineyard day look like?
Starting the day off with a walk on the beach with my pomeranian pup, Winnie, Breakfast at State Road with friends. Spending couple hours in the sunshine at one of the many fabulous beaches we’re surrounded by, late afternoon run through the State Forest, and ending the day with a BBQ/Clam Boil on Menemsha Beach with family and friends, watching the sunset.
How long have you worked for Landvest and what attracted you to real estate on MV?
I have worked at Landvest as an assistant for 6 months, so fairly new to the company. I recently completed the real estate course at Dukes Academy and in the process of getting my salesperson license. In the short time I have been here, I have learned a tremendous amount. There are many dynamics involved in real estate (advertising, sales, photography, accounting) and I love that each day comes with a new and exciting challenge. I look forward to increasing my knowledge and experiencing what lies ahead.
If you could spend the rest of your life in just one place where would it be?
I would definitely say the Vineyard, probably Oak Bluffs or Edgartown because they both offer a little bit of everything.
What is the most magical part of the Vineyard in your opinion?
The surroundings. The amount of pristine beauty to experience on this island is endless. Whether exploring the serenity of up island or strolling through the quaint “downtown”, there never seems to be a dull moment. The island is a treasure and I’m very appreciated that this place is my home.
