I moved to Chilmark, Martha's Vineyard in the summer of 2004 after retiring from a twenty two year career in finance in New York which began at EF Hutton and ended at Lazard. My "second" career began at Flanders Up-Island Real Estate working with the Flanders family. Licensed as an agent in 2005 and as a broker in 2006, I was responsible for managing the family office, marketing, advertising and matching tenants and landlords at vacation properties. In the summer of 2005, I sold my first home, a historic house and barn on Chimark's Middle Road.
I started Russell Maloney Real Estate, LLC in 2008 just as the real estate market on the Vineyard began to slow. It seemed to be the perfect time to draw on my skills and talents from my old and new career and form a firm of my own. My first listing was yet another historic house and barn, this time in West Tisbury. A unique marketing plan, personalized and dedicated client service, along with a beautiful web site, all contributed to an offer being accepted for this property within two weeks of listing with Russell Maloney Real Estate, LLC.
Selling real estate on Martha's Vineyard serves to remind me how beautiful the island is and how fortunate and grateful I am to live here. It wasn't long after I relocated here that I was asked to join the Chilmark Conservation Commission which I did eagerly and serve today as Vice Chairman. In 2010 I was encouraged to join Chilmark's Zoning Board of Appeals and serve today as Chairman. I am also a board director for the Island Autism Group.
I strive to differentiate myself by providing individual, customized service to both sellers and buyers on the island. My skills at client servicing, marketing, negotiation, knowledge of and love for this island combined with my honesty and integrity make me the ideal real estate broker ...uniquely qualified to suit your needs.
