Shirley Avenue, Oak Bluffs
Marianna is not an islander, though she did make a home for herself on Martha’s Vineyard. As a young woman, she found herself compelled to purchase her first house on her own, a vintage Oak Bluffs cottage, and took it from there. The cottage was a great tipping off point, followed by a husband, two babies and a major renovation. After the remodel was completed she realized her kids were not babies anymore, and though the island was the perfect location to start her family, she longed to be closer to her roots down south. Skipping Hunstville, Alabama, she set her focus on Gulf Breeze, Florida.
The plan would be to sell the cottage, and ship the family south, swapping the now very sophisticated cottage for a grand and sizable southern estate. Thats where I stepped in.
We agreed that installing air conditioning would the final touch to give the property increased saleability, decided on a spring listing date, and set a price backed by marketplace data. We listed on a Monday, held the agent open house on Tuesday, and successfully negotiated an accepted offer by Friday. Marianna and her husband Bob are diligent, meticulous, patient and level headed property owners, and just absolute dream clients.
