Meet the Point B Realty Team On Martha’s Vineyard – Tina Miller | Associate REALTOR®
Meet Associate Realtor Tina Miller. Many people know Tina on the Vineyard. A native Islander, she has owned restaurants, written cookbooks, managed a local TV station, raised two amazing boys, and is now a dedicated, client-focused Realtor. While real estate is now a big part of her life now, she continues to share her passion for food as editor of Edible Vineyard. She brings so much to the company (pictured below with Harlow).
Tina’s Favorite Martha’s Vineyard Activity: Tina loves going to the beach all year long with her rescue dog Harlow. If you follow Tina on Instagram, you know that Harlow goes to the most amazing beaches on the Island. She’s one lucky dog!
Tina’s Thoughts On What Makes Point B The Best: “Point B sees the whole diverse community on the Island, not just one town. I like being the part of a company that has that awareness.”

For her, it’s like matchmaking — she finds people their dream home in her happy place.

There are so many things that Jen enjoys about the Vineyard. One of her favorite activities is going to Norton Point, driving on the sand in her jeep with her family and dog Luc.

Jennifer’s Thoughts On What Makes Point B The Best:
“Point B is a leading real estate brokerage on island. We are cllent-focusedl and always striving to reach the next level. Our Point B team is close and offers coaching, mentoring, training, support and encouragement so that we can master our craft as real estate professionals while supporting each other – truly a lovely working environment. Finally, Point B also gives back to the island community – many residents struggle and tourists are unaware of their challenges of housing and food insecurity. Point B supports two non-profit organizations where I serve on the Board – the Martha’s Vineyard Boys and Girls Club and The Cottagers of MV. I feel fortunate to work with an agency that aligns with my core values and also my philanthropic interests“.
