Fisher’s Nantucket Real Estate Year in Review 2019 is Here!

“While Fisher Real Estate’s figures put the 2019 Nantucket real estate market at just under the $1 billion mark with a total of 423 transactions, excluding foreclosures and non-market rate transactions, it was nonetheless an impressive year. This is particularly true if you consider that the first quarter of 2019 trailed the first quarter of 2018 by a respective 39 percent and 47 percent on a transaction and dollar volume basis. Throughout the year, each quarter built more momentum than the last and, all told, 2019 ended up trailing 2018 by just six percent in transactions and ten percent in dollar volume — the latter largely due to a reduced number of high-end transactions”.

Jen first stepped foot on the shores of Nantucket while working a summer job at the White Elephant while studying at the University of Virginia. It wasn’t until 2008, after having spent six years in the financial sector at Citigroup and then Wachovia, that she was drawn back to the island more permanently. Since that time, Jen has worked on an impressive array of real estate transactions exceeding $240 million. This includes, among others, two of the island’s largest and most complex vacant land transfers, several commercial transactions, and many single-family home sales, from high-end residential estates to lender-owned asset dispositions. Capitalizing on her extensive background in finance and market knowledge, Jen is well known for her unparalleled “Nantucket Real Estate Report,” an in-depth monthly market commentary and analysis that has been quoted by CNBC and The Boston Globe.

When not showing properties or researching the Nantucket real estate market, Jen can be found volunteering with Swim Across America Nantucket, a local fundraising event for cancer treatment and patient care at Nantucket Cottage Hospital or sitting on committees for other Nantucket nonprofits. She loves traveling, spending time outdoors with husband Mike and lab Sammy, and is an avid runner, cyclist and triathlete.
