About ROSE.

Rose spent her childhood on Cape Cod, with frequent visits to the island, where her father’s general contracting business was centered. Coming from a family of builders, she’s always appreciated the construction process and if she hadn’t found real estate, she would have been in the building business too.

After graduating from Tulane University, Rose wanted to be closer to her family in New England. It was a natural choice to move full time to Martha’s Vineyard. She joined Sandpiper Realty in 2011 and says it’s been her anchor ever since. She was lucky to work directly for one of Sandpiper’s top producers for 3 years before successfully becoming an independent agent, providing a rare and invaluable real estate education. Rose determined from the start that real estate would be her career. Rose has devoted herself to furthering her education by earning a GREEN Designation from the National Association of Realtors. She is a member of the Conservation Commission for the Town of Oak Bluffs, and enjoys serving her community and protecting the island’s wetlands.

Rose’s clients greatly value her constant, clear communication. They have acknowledged her for being “amazingly steadfast,” “responsive and always informed,” “having fabulous judgement,” and “going far above and beyond the call of duty to get the job done.” Her enthusiastic approach to work and life is evident. Rose is thrilled to be raising her son on Martha’s Vineyard, carrying on her family’s love for the island.



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.

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.
