Helping A Local Martha’s Vineyard Resident Navigate Island Real Estate To Get Started On His First Vineyard Home

Steve Handy Junior Buying His First Land On Martha's Vineyard

It was all smiles and handshakes, as Point B buyer client — and islander — Steve Handy Junior (right) closed on his first piece of real estate here on Martha’s Vineyard.

With help from family and friends, Steve plans to start clearing his one acre lot on Clay Pit Road in Edgartown right away, and if the winter weather cooperates, he’s hoping to finish his first home within six months.

Point B Realty Broker Associate Trish Lyman helped Steve navigate the first-time home buyer real estate landscape on Martha’s Vineyard for the better part of this year. Finding housing that is affordable is an ongoing challenge for many local residents.

After consulting with Trish on a variety of options, Steve decided buying land and building his own home was his best option.


With a little co-signing support from Steve Handy Senior, legal help from attorney Dick Dubin of Dubin & Reardon, and construction loan guidance from Patti Young at Martha’s Vineyard Savings Bank, all the pieces are now in place.

Congratulations and good luck Steve!
