About Atlantic East

The Atlantic East Nantucket Real Estate OfficeIn 2004 we saw an opportunity to form a distinctive office of committed, experienced and creative agents. We opened Atlantic East Real Estate in January 2005 at 8 Williams Lane with five professional and expert agents and extremely capable support staff. With the market at an all‐time high in 2007, we made a strategic move to re‐locate to town and in 2014 purchased and settled at 82 Easton Street.

Always looking ahead, in 2011 we purchased the coveted URL: NantucketRealEstate.com and the company, Nantucket Real Estate and changed our name to Atlantic East Nantucket Real Estate.

Since then we have had the great fortune to attract the best agents on island to grow our company while sticking to core values of integrity, professionalism and treating others as we would wish to be treated. Which seems to be working!


“We recently purchased a house on Nantucket. Melinda Vallett was wonderful to work with and helped make our purchase possible. Melinda has extensive knowledge of all aspects of year round life on Nantucket and accurate expertise in Nantucket’s unique real estate market including location, zoning and pricing. She listened to our “wish list” of price, location, size, and layout, showed us a variety of properties fitting those parameters, and patiently helped us find a house that met our requirements. Melinda was helpful in negotiating the terms of the purchase, finding us a local attorney, and even offering great advice for furnishing our new home. Melinda has continued to be a resource for possible rentals of our property, as well as for general advice on island life. -Bill and Lori, Maryland”

“You are the best Broker & an excellent shrink. You helped keep our sanity and kept the encouragement coming when the chips were down.   We cannot thank you enough for your patience, expertise, diplomacy and professional guidance while we sold our family home and purchased a new property.”

“Mary was extremely professional.  She handled all the showings of our previous home.  She always gave us an appropriate amount of lead time to pull ourselves together since we were still living in that house.”
