Contact Lara

With firm roots and a long line of historic Nantucket families in her genes, Lara’s knowledge and understanding of the island are vast. As an 8th generation Nantucketer, she grew up with a love for nature and for the unique and tenaciously caring community that exists here.

Along with her years of real estate experience and knowledge of the island, Lara brings forth a unique set of skills from her previous career in aviation. Beginning with the airlines and ultimately working in airport management and operations and as an aircraft rescue firefighter, Lara thrives when working as part of a dynamic team and prides herself in finding solutions to even the most challenging problems.

Always looking to maintain a high standard of knowledge, Lara has earned her Accrediated Buyer Representative and Resort and Second Home Property Specialist designations from the National Association of Realtors. Lara sits on two committees with the Nantucket Association of Real Estate Brokers (NAREB): the Education Committee and the Listing Service Oversight Committee. In further pursuit of growth, Lara has also been a member of the Cape and Islands Association of Realtors’ Nantucket Realtor Advisory Group.

Client Feedback

“It was great working with Lara.  She was very responsive, proactive, and always available to answer the many questions we asked throughout the home buying process.  We always knew we were in good hands working with Lara based on her knowledge of the island and the real estate market. Because of the positive experience we had with Lara finding a house and also after we had acquired the house, we knew we had to partner with her to rent the house. We feel really good about Lara helping us to navigate the rental experience. We are very lucky to have a house on Nantucket, and working with Lara has been an excellent experience for us.”

Lara is very knowledgeable and her communication was great during the process of selling my house - and we were able to get the price that I wanted!
