Testimonials

Jean was very responsive to my needs. After we had looked at all prospective buys on the market that fit my specification, she promptly reviewed with me every new listing and every price change as they entered the market.All this effort resulted in my purchase of exactly the house I wanted. I recommend Jean Kelleher to all those looking to buy on the island of Martha’s Vineyard, MA.

W. Elbow

We met Jean Kelleher through a sign she had placed on a property she had listed. Having met with several other Martha’s Vineyard realtors over the course of our visit, Jean stood out head and shoulders above the others. She was personable, yet professional with  years of local knowledge, which gave us confidence. In one day, she had scheduled 9 houses for us to consider, and at the end of that one day, we felt comfortable enough to put in a bid on one of the houses. I  would definitely not hesitate to recommend Jean to anyone who is interested in buying on Martha’s Vineyard.

D. Dixon

Jean Kelleher of Kelleher Real Estate has been an invaluable asset in my search for properties on Martha’s Vineyard. With her knowledgeable and friendly assistance, I found a great second home and a wonderful investment property. I could not have done it without her help and guidance.

J. Steinmetz

During our first tour of homes with Jean she provided us with candid information on the area, local beaches, life during  the on and off seasons, etc. Working with her, we never felt pushed in one direction or the other. Once we identified the house we wanted, Jean effectively negotiated a fair price that left us extremely satisfied. During our search, Jean worked effectively with the other realtors, and was extremely helpful during the contract period with respect to legal / home inspections, etc. We would use Jean again on the next home we purchase / sell on the island, and would highly recommend her!

Mike Zedalas

Jean was truly a joy to work with! She listened when we initially called her with many, many questions and patiently and thoroughly answered all of these (and many, many more)! She guided us to an area of the island that best suited our plans and continues to offer us advice and guidance. Jean made buying home on the island from long distance easy! Will definitely work with Jean again when the time comes!

F. Hoffman

My wife and I had been searching for a new home on Martha’s Vineyard for over a year and Jean helped us every step of the way. Her responsiveness, as well as her local knowledge, including contacts with trustworthy banking and inspection professions, made the whole process seem easy. Jean has been very pleasant to work with personally, and we have found her integrity to be without question. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell property on MV!

R. Sternberg

Jean helped us with our search for an investment property on Martha’s Vineyard. When we finally found a property that met our requirements that included a limited budget and desired location, she spent an entire weekend working with us to help us learn the fine art of real estate negotiations. Throughout the process she was extremely professional and treated us as if we were family. She was accessible day or night to answer our questions or give advice. We would highly recommend Jean to anyone looking to purchase a home on the Vineyard.

J. Peterson

I have known Jean for twenty years from the time that I was a renter on the island (and actually rented her property!) to now owning a property for about ten years. She has always had a great pulse on the market, been quickly responsive to any sort of question/issue/problem and has helped me become a competent home owner and landlord on the island. She has found me great tenants, provided valuation assistance and connected me with all kinds of contractors/repairmen when needed. She is also a very warm, kindhearted person who will strive to protect you and your interests. A good friend; a great realtor!!

C. Jamison

Jean was so fantastic to work with, we were a little nervous to take the leap of faith but Jean made the whole process so easy, from picking us up at the ferry to emailing additional pictures of property we were looking at. She was extremely patient and listened to our needs in finding what we wanted.

I would and have recommended Jean to friends and family and know she will treat them with the same respect and professionalism she showed us.
