Tjark Aldeborgh

Associate Broker / Realtor®

A life-long Vineyard summer resident, I had the opportunity to move to the Island from Vermont in 2008. I started Homes on Martha’s Vineyard (HMV), a full-service real estate sales and vacation rental agency. As Managing Broker for HMV and now with The Vineyard Life brokered by exp Realty, I have developed a thorough understanding of the unique nature of the MV real estate market. Prior to entering the real estate industry, I worked in management-level positions in a variety of advertising, hospitality, non-profit and technology-based industries in New York City, Boston, and Vermont. My professional experience includes Director of Communications for the Vermont State Chamber of Commerce/Vermont Hospitality Association; managing a full-service advertising agency, publishing a recreational magazine, and being paid to ride snowmobiles in Alaska and Vermont as Communications Manager for a 45,000-member non-profit organization. While my professional background has been diverse, my focus has remained consistent – be passionate about what you do in a location that you love with people you respect. Living on Martha’s Vineyard has allowed me to continue this lifestyle. I chose to work at The Vineyard Life because its agency philosophy aligns with my personal beliefs and my goal is to help my clients realize their dreams of the Vineyard Life.
