About Us


Here’s what our clients say about us!

For nearly twenty years we have relied on Tea Lane’s trusted advice and unrivaled knowledge of the island. Our family has rented, purchased and sold homes through Tea Lane. As first-time renters looking to experience up-island for the first time or pre-children, as we evaluated our first purchase. Recently, Tea Lane helped us identify a new home while simultaneously selling our existing home. Tea Lane will guide you through the process with transparency and skill. Their client-focused culture is clear at every step.
Brendan and Claudine Hanley, Rye NY
We have worked with Tea Lane for over 10 years. First as the rental agent for our house in Katama, then to purchase property in Aquinnah and most recently, to sell our house in Katama. Tea Lane Associates is comfortable in any market, in any town. Their knowledge of market dynamics, town governments and real estate law are completely on point. They repeatedly went above and beyond the call of duty to provide individualized and meticulous service.
Jeffie Butler, Aspen, CO and Aquinnah, MA
We have bought and sold a number of houses over the years and our experience with Tea Lane has been far superior to any other experience we have had with other realtors anywhere. We simply cannot recommend them highly enough. They are professional, thoughtful, and responsive. They have always been able to understand our personal needs in any of a number of different situations. They are the best. Look no further.
Ellen Williams and Larry Miller, Cambridge, MA
Working with Tea Lane to sell our family compound, we were in expert hands. Tea Lane’s long experience in navigating the swings of the market gave us an excellent sale price, just what we were hoping for. They were strategically smart, and at the same time sensitive to our individual family needs. We wouldn’t think of going anywhere else.
Rob and JoAn Alden, Santa Monica, CA
My family has used Tea Lane Associates for over twenty years. During that time, they provided us with wonderful rentals for summer vacations and also found us a home, which we fell in love with and ultimately purchased. We not only still reach out to Tea Lane for referrals and advice (because they know everything there is to know about the Vineyard), but we also have formed close friendships with many of their agents.
Jennifer Dunner Weaver, Riverwoods, Illinois
When it came to working with Tea Lane, their professional courtesy, attention to detail, and stress-free efficient approach to selling our house, made the moving back to Ireland after living on the Vineyard for over 20 years, a breeze. They say selling your home is one of the hardest times of your life, and especially from 3000 miles away, but we are so thankful Tea Lane found the right buyer and closed the deal for us quickly.
Lara O’Brien & Charles Robinson, Dublin, Ireland
In March of 2020 my client listed seven properties with Tea Lane Associates. Those lots had been marketed by other companies for years and languished on the market. Tea Lane did a very in depth market analysis to help us determine realistic selling prices. They marketed our property well and showed it often and we were able to get an offer on our first property in 1 month. Their team was very responsive to any questions or concerns that we had and were always wonderful to work with. It took just over 1 year to sell all seven lots and at no point in that time did their dedication to selling the properties waiver. They were just as aggressive and excited about selling the seventh lot as they were with the first. Tea Lane’s knowledge, professionalism and terrific instincts have consistently guided us through to excellent outcomes. It was truly a pleasure to work with their team – I’ve found that they keep their client’s best interests in sharp focus and you can always trust that they are on top of every detail, big and small, which brings great peace of mind in any real estate transaction.
Perry Ambulos, Chilmark, MA
Tea lane is about connecting. Connecting with the right deals and connecting with our community. There is also a trust. A trust that I’ll get an answer and that the details are covered.
Andy Italiano, San Diego, CA and Chilmark, MA
Working with Tea Lane has been an absolute pleasure. Our agent was on top of every house that came on the market as soon as they were available. She knew what we wanted and was able to match our needs with what was available so there was not a lot of wasted time coming to the island to look at houses that would not work for us. There is no way we would have found our home without Tea Lane.
Steve and Jennifer Warner , Chilmark/NYC
Tea Lane Associates didn't just sell my home on Martha's Vineyard, Abby and her team created a client for life. The process of letting go of my beloved home after my husband's death was eased greatly by Tea Lane's sensitivity, caring and professionalism in handling every step and detail from Day One through closing. I am so deeply grateful for such an outstanding experience during such a challenging time. Now I'm having a fun and amazing experience with Tea Lane securing vacation rentals on the Vineyard!
Debbie Phillips, Naples, Florida
Working with Tea Lane Associates was truly the best experience I’ve ever had selling or buying! No pressure, great advice, and always available!
Tim Duys Vineyard Haven, MA
Tea Lane has helped my family for well over a decade with the rental of a meticulously cared-for home. Through their honest and close communication with both prospective tenants and our family, the Tea Lane agents have matched us with precisely the right groups to enjoy our property. The result has been fantastic; wonderful tenants who return year after year.
Isaiah O., Chilmark, MA
We have been working with Tea Lane for over twenty-five years. So many great memories!
Dr. Bert and Dr. Elaine Pitt, Ann Arbor, MI
In our 30 years of looking for real estate, Tea Lane has always been there for us. They have been very knowledgeable, flexible, and especially patient with us! And we have successfully bought two properties and look forward to working with them again!
Richard and Jude Rowe, West Tisbury, MA
We heard from our attorney that Tea Lane Associates is a top notch company with deep experience with complex sales. Tea Lane Associates did an absolutely perfect job on our sale and our broker was with us every step of the way. Without her detailed knowledge, we could not have been successful. I could not have been happier with Tea Lane’s professional approach, including our broker’s accessibility when the going got tough. Most importantly, we feel we got the right price. Thank you for a job well done.
Charlie Parker, Concord, MA
We have been renting through Tea Lane since 2008. They have always been a pleasure to deal with and continue to provide service beyond our expectations.
David Casey and Natasha Bilimoria, Washington D.C.
Tea Lane Associates has been there for our family for 20 years. Tea Lane provides Blue Ribbon service and I always know I can count on them. They are courteous, kind and prompt with any questions or concerns. I recommend them to everyone I care about.
