Credentials

ABR – Jean got her certification as an Accredited Buyer’s Rep from NAR. A designation few members of the island sales force have acquired although they all offer buyer representation as prescribed by the state.

GREEN – Jean is the first real estate professional on the Island that has attained the GREEN designation also issued by the NAR. The GREEN course teaches participants about issues of energy efficiency and sustainability in the various facets of real estate. As consumer demand for knowledge of these issues increase, so will our client’s awareness of green issues.

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!!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

Jean helped us find a great place – right on the water. And she meticulously guided us through the negotiation process with the seller, and was ALWAYS our advocate. She wasn’t just trying to make us buy a home. She wanted to make sure we got exactly what we were looking for. She is the ultimate professional, and was just such a warm human being as well! We were super lucky to have found her!

Jean is a very knowledgeable and experienced real estate professional. She worked with us for many weeks prior to our visit to Martha's Vineyard to understand our needs, narrow down the interested locations and set up numerous showings. We appreciated her expertise on Martha's Vineyard and particularly her extensive marketplace knowledge. Although, we have not purchased yet, we will continue to work with Jean to find just the right property.

Five years ago our dream came true. Owning a summer home on Martha's Vineyard had always been a dream of ours. Jean made that possible. We are not your typical Vineyard buyers. We had a very limited budget. Jean was patient and respectful and guided us through the process in a professional and caring manner. She has become a trusted friend and we value her insights and years of experience. We are now in the process of obtaining our next "dream come true" and Jean is right by our side helping to make that happen. Judy and Bob Peterson

Our experience with Jean was excellent! The time from first meeting Jean to the closing was less than three months. Her extensive knowledge of the local market made all the difference. She was sensitive to our family’s mixed feelings about selling our summer home, and when decisions had to be made, we welcomed her advice. I highly recommend Jean to anyone hoping to sell or buy a home on the Vineyard.
