When we finally decided to buy, we wanted a smart, experienced realtor who knew the island from lighthouse to lighthouse. Helena Kirschenbaum proved to be exactly that, and more. We found our dream house on our first outing thanks to Helena who listened carefully to what we wanted and structured our day to see relevant properties. She helped us through the offer process with thoughtful and honest support. Her incredible network of on-island contractors, architects, bankers, lawyers and engineers led us to a fabulous home inspector and structural engineer who fit us into their busy schedules. Our deal closed on time and without a hitch largely due to Helena's contacts and diligence. I can honestly say that in addition to landing our dream house, we found a friend. We recommend Helena highly to anyone interested in buying or selling real estate on the island.

Our experience with Helena Kirschenbaum was simply wonderful! Starting with our initial contact, back when we were beginning to explore the possibility of home ownership on the island, she demonstrated and maintained a level of professionalism unparalleled with other realtors that we've dealt with over the years. Throughout the shopping process, Helena was patient, thorough, and behaved more like an assistant buyer – rather than a salesperson. She showed us numerous properties and pointed out the negatives as well as the positives with each. During this period, we became friends and not just clients. Once we settled on a property, Helena again proved how a professional works. We were guided through the offer process and once accepted, she assisted with every detail right up until the final closing. Phone calls and e-mails were always answered promptly and no problem was ever left unresolved. Since the closing, Helena has stayed in contact and continues to offer assistance as we deal with ownership issues. Helena is a dedicated professional and a true advocate for home ownership on Martha's Vineyard. We consider ourselves fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with her and won't hesitate to recommend her to friends and associates considering a home on the island.

Sincerely, Jim & Elise Vieira
