Nantucket is unique, a truly great place to work and to play, to live and to visit. At Great Point Properties we prize this island and strive every day to be the best real estate firm on Nantucket and to help families find homes and build traditions here.
Our growth in sales and vacation rentals is the result of our dedication to delivering useful, well-founded information to buyers, sellers, and renters, and to operate every day with honesty, integrity, and a strong work ethic.
Amidst growth and change in 2016, we are prouder than ever of the team we’ve built. We measure success, not just in sales dollars and numbers of properties sold, but in building durable customer relationships based on service. By any measure, our conscientious and committed agents, working under Great Point Properties’ guiding principles, are among Nantucket’s very best in a unique and competitive market.
We’re proud of our performance in 2016. Great Point Properties participated in 26% of all listed transactions, representing more than 30% of all annual sales last year.
We will continue to work diligently to serve you—our valued sellers, buyers, homeowners, and tenants—to ensure that we meet your needs again this year with energy, integrity, and innovation. Read More
