Testimonials

“Our house hunting journey started on a cold Sunday afternoon when we walked into the Sandpiper office without an appointment and Stephanie greeted us warmly at the door. She immediately made us feel she understood our needs for an MV house and from our very first meeting we knew we were in great hands. Buying a house when you’re off island can be tricky but Stephanie kept us posted on the latest listings and when we finally found our perfect house, Stephanie proved invaluable in the ownership process. Her expertise, support and friendship helped us every step of the way. She guided us through inspection, multiple questions regarding construction, closing and even the best restaurants and beaches. She continues to be a great resource and we love our new home.”

“If you’re looking for a home on Martha’s Vineyard, you won’t find anyone better than Stephanie and Elaine to help you with your search! They are extremely knowledgeable about the island and consummate professionals. After spending more than a year listening to our wishes and looking at dozens of properties, they helped us to find our dream home. We would highly recommend Stephanie and Elaine to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home on the Vineyard.”

-Buyer / MARC AND SHELLEY

“We were very nervous about selling our home. As soon as we met Stephanie and Elaine, all,our fears evaporated. Their technical experience, knowledge of the market and familiarity with the area are first rate. We were away during the entire process and they kept us updated regularly. They managed the process with proficiency. The final highlight of their efforts was when the property sold above the asking price.”

-Seller / JOHN AND PAT

“I listed a piece of property in Edgartown with Stephanie Roache/Sandpiper Realty in April 2014 and it sold in February 2017. It took a little longer to sell than I had hoped and we dropped the price a few times but we finally found the right buyer for the property. I live in Massachusetts but not on the Vineyard so I really relied on Stephanie’s knowledge and expertise regarding the real estate market and the way things are handled on the island. She was very professional during the time we worked together and always answered my questions and returned my phone calls in a timely manner. Although I don’t think I will have a future need for a realtor on the Vineyard but I would not hesitate to recommend Stephanie Roache and Sand Piper Realty to anyone in need of those services.”

“We met Elaine Miller this summer and connected with her immediately since she made us feel not only excited to look for a home but completely comfortable in her hands. When she put us in contact with Stephanie Roache we quickly found how easy it was to work with her. She was so motivated to help us find the right home for our family. We started looking at properties with Stephanie in July, found the perfect home for us and closed before the end of October! She listened to all our needs and concerns and kept in constant contact with us. We met other realtors on the island and she is by far the most professional, motivated and knowledgeable person we met. She was wonderful with our kids also and really made us feel important throughout the entire process. She is not only a great realtor, but we quickly built a wonderful friendship with her that we plan to continue as we spend time on the island in our beautiful new home! We would recommend Stephanie and Elaine to anyone who is looking to buy a home on Martha’s Vineyard. We feel so lucky to have met them and they absolutely made our Martha’s Vineyard home purchase a dream come true. Thank you!”

-Buyer / PATRICK AND LISA

“What a gift it was to find Stephanie and Elaine! From the very beginning it was clear we were in very competent and caring hands. Our situation became quite challenging and Stephanie and Elaine were always available to counsel, support and advocate for us through the difficulties right up to the closing. We cannot recommend them highly enough!”

-Seller / KATE AND POLLY

WIFE: We struck gold when we met Stephanie. Looking for a new home in a competitive market is never fun but Stephanie made it as painless as possible. She was always communicative, helpful, accommodating and always made us feel that she always had our back.

HUSBAND: Having purchased and sold many properties with many agents, we were lucky to find Stephanie. She not only was willing to schlep us everywhere to see everything, but once we narrowed down to our desired property, she was so accessible, knowledgeable and acted as our advocate that everything went as smoothly as we had hoped. I just can’t say enough good things about her. Martha’s Vineyard can be tricky. Stephanie is your magician.

-Buyer / MICHAEL AND MARCI

“A distinguished professional with an eye for detail and a flair for timely and appropriate follow through on all of the aspects of property purchase. From the initial showing to closing Stephanie was the consummate professional with heart!”

-Buyer

“My husband and I found Stephanie and Elaine very knowledgeable and professional from the very beginning. They would listen and try to offer the best suggestions according to the market at the time. Living out of state was a bit harder also as most of our communications were through emails, which were always promptly answered. Stephanie and Elaine are also very kind, caring individuals who truly believe in what they do and understand the stress and tension that comes when selling or buying a house. We would definitely refer them to anyone!”

-Seller / RALPH AND MARY ELLEN

“Stephanie was terrific. We started working with her a year before we were ready to buy something in Martha’s Vineyard. She took us around and began showing us houses even though she knew we were not ready to buy. She understood that we needed to understand the area and the market. She never pressured us. When we were ready to buy Stephanie was extremely responsive. She really gave us an in depth understanding of the island and the different neighborhoods. When we felt that we could not afford the area we wanted Stephanie remained positive, gave us alternatives but told us to hold out for what we wanted. She was right – she found the perfect house for us. We had a very difficult seller and she managed the process seamlessly. I would 100% recommend Stephanie. She is a great realtor and a wonderful person!!”

-Buyer / RICHARD AND HOLLY

“Without a doubt, I would HIGHLY recommend Stephanie Roache and Elaine Miller for your next home purchase. My husband and I have bought and sold homes over the past 20 years–all across this country–from New York to Seattle to Washington DC and the experience with Stephanie and Elaine was the most professional and comprehensive. Their attention to detail and putting our best interest first was extraordinary. The not only guided us through the purchase–but their follow-up with local services and contractors will make our move to MV stress-free. I cannot imagine a better team of real estate professionals!!!!”
