About ROSE.

Rose has been with Sandpiper since 2011 and is a licensed Massachusetts sales agent. Rose’s career at Sandpiper Realty, Inc. started with vacation rentals, where she helped homeowners maximize their income investment. She moved quickly into the sales market by working on a two member team with a senior agent for three years. With an average of closing over 20 transactions a year ranging from complex land parcels to luxury estates, Rose gained a wealth of experience in a relatively short amount of time for the real estate world. The most valuable education in real estate comes from directly participating in a wide range of transactions, and solving the challenges that arise along the way. This uniquely advanced education in real estate combined with her independent experience is the foundation of everything she brings to her clients.

Rose’s talents are rooted in the strong listing background for which Sandpiper Realty is known. The listing program at Sandpiper Realty sets the standard for selling real estate on Martha’s Vineyard. Through her training and support within this institution, Rose has honed her skills in turning mundane property research into viable marketing material. She is a certified Pricing Strategy Advisor, designated by the National Association of Realtors.

Rose’s relationship with the island started in childhood. Coming from a family of builders, she would visit her father’s job sites on Martha’s Vineyard, and follow the development of a house from the studs to the stair treads. Rose continues to expand her understanding of current building practices and has earned a GREEN designation from the National Association of Realtors. She grew up on Cape Cod, graduated from Cape Cod Academy and earned her bachelor’s degree at Tulane University. Rose’s life on-island includes practicing yoga and raising her son Thompson.


We had a very positive experience working with Rose on the purchase of a home on Martha’s Vineyard.

From our first contact with her, she worked quickly and efficiently to address and respond to our many questions. She went above and beyond our expectations when it came to researching any issues and resolving any problems that came up. She handled all of the transaction details on a timely basis. It was always easy to communicate with her via text, email or phone, all of which she responded to promptly. She has continued to assist us even after the closing with details that came up regarding the house.

Rose is both highly professional and very pleasant to deal with. We highly recommend Rose for your next real estate purchase or sale on the Vineyard.

When I met Rose I was immediately impressed. She was reliable, knowledgeable and very organized. Three factors that were important to me when finding someone to work with. She did not let us down. The entire process went so smoothly. I highly recommend Rose!

We worked with Rose to list and sell our home on Martha’s Vineyard. This was the first house we sold, and Rose was extremely helpful in explaining the process, showing us comps, and making sure we were comfortable and ready for every showing. The whole process from pre-listing through closing was smooth and we really credit Rose’s knowledge of the area and of real estate on the Island in making our experience so great. If we are ever again in the market to purchase and/or sell a home on MV, we won’t hesitate to contact Rose as our real estate agent.

My experience with Rose was incredibly good. She was on top of every detail, and anticipated items before I even thought to bring them up. I have already recommended it her to friends who are looking for a home on Martha’s Vineyard, and they are so pleased with their experience as well. Rose is so well organized and pays such careful attention to the needs of her clients and the process in general. Her responsiveness to phone calls, emails, in person meetings, etc. was truly remarkable. I definitely got the sense that Rose wants her clients to succeed and to find their dream home, and is really willing to go and walk that extra mile with you to do so. She is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about Martha’s Vineyard, and a super competent realty professional. She is also poised, thoughtful and gracious, and just plain fun to work with!

Rose has worked with me on two homes on Marthas Vineyard. Her professionalism, people skills and real estate knowledge is second to none. I have been involved in real estate purchases and sales in multiple countries and US states and I found Rose to be the best agent I have come across in 20 years. I would highly recommend her. Thank you Rose, sincerely.
