Great Point Properties acquired ‘Sconset Real Estate March of 2014, adding a group of talented brokers and agents to its staff while establishing a physical presence in the historic village in Nantucket’s east end.

“We are thrilled to have ‘Sconset Real Estate join Great Point Properties,” said GPP principal Edward Sanford. “They have a great niche in Sconset and really know the market, so we know this will be a good fit for both offices.”

Under Great Point Properties, the ‘Sconset Real Estate office, located in the ‘Sconset Post Office building just off Main Street, will remain open year-round and will retain its current staff and name.

‘Sconset Real Estate has been a part of Coffin ‘Sconset Real Estate for decades under the ownership of Bernie and Carol Coffin. The Coffins will join the Great Point Properties staff, with Bernie remaining in Sconset and Carol transitioning to Great Point Properties’ North Beach Street office.

“We are all very excited about joining a large enthusiastic group of brokers who continue to be innovative and keep up with current technology and marketing skills successfully,” Carol Coffin said.

The Coffins and ‘Sconset Real Estate’s other knowledgeable sales and rental agents, including Paula McAuley, Debbie Willett and Sarah Maneikis, will be key assets on the Great Point Properties team, and were among the primary reasons for pursuing the deal, according to Great Point Properties principal Bill Liddle.

“The staff there is very engrained in Sconset,” Liddle said. “They know Sconset.”

‘Sconset Real Estate is the oldest continuously operated real estate firm in Siasconset. Operated by the Coffin family since the late 1960s, the office merged with Coffin Real Estate in 1979 to become Coffin ‘Sconset Real Estate.

For Great Point Properties, it is not the first time the firm has joined forces with another real estate office to offer its clients more comprehensive service. Back in 2008, Liddle and McKechnie’s Great Point Properties merged with Edward Sanford’s Sanford Real Estate and moved into the North Beach Street office where it remains today.

Great Point Properties, an exclusive affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate, is a leading Nantucket real estate firm specializing in Nantucket home sales and island vacation rentals.

Market Report


Posted: September 7, 2016 by Edward Sanford

Little has changed with August real estate sales activity. The lower number of July house closings look to be a bit of an aberration as closings for this August were 32% higher than August 2015. There were 33 sales versus 25 for last August. Year to date house sales are up 32%. This increase is almost all below $4,000,000. For 2016, over $4,000,000, there has been just one more transaction than as of August 31. 2015. This may change as, of the 78 houses reported under contract, seventeen are listed in excess of $4,000,000. That compares to only seven last year out of 96 reported contracts as of last August 31.
