#MakingTheJump with Fisher Real Estate Nantucket


In early 2016, Brian Sullivan, Jen Shalley and Cam Gammill “made the jump”, banding forces to create Fisher Real Estate, Nantucket’s newest full-service real estate brokerage. As any entrepreneur will appreciate, embarking on a new venture is a unique and rich experience. From navigating a distinctive path in a competitive industry to learning the ins and outs of running a business with partners, Fisher’s principals shared their experiences in a filmed session with Yellow Productions. #MakingTheJump is an original web series that documents and encourages entrepreneurship, featuring some of the island’s most successful businesses.

Brian Sullivan

Originally hailing from Weston, Massachusetts, Brian came to Nantucket in 1996 intending to stay for just the summer. As often happens, he found himself being drawn in by the Island’s allure and immediately set about building a dynamic career spanning over 20 years in Nantucket real estate. Brian loves the puzzle and challenge of matching people to property, and believes that there is something for everyone here on Nantucket if you look hard enough. As one of the top brokers on the Island, to date he has participated in hundreds of millions in transactions and has been quoted by CNNMoney and Barron’s.

Brian truly embodies the Nantucket lifestyle, taking advantage of all the unique outdoor opportunities the Island offers and throwing himself into the local community. Seemingly squeezing 48 hours worth of work and activities into 24, Brian sits on numerous Boards and Committees, including the Maria Mitchell Association, and was appointed by the Nantucket Board of Selectmen to the Affordable Housing Trust. He lives on the Island year round with his wife, Tess, owner of The Hub Nantucket, and their son, Fisher.
