Tjark Aldeborgh

Associate Broker / Realtor®

Tjark is a life-long Vineyard summer resident, I had the opportunity to move to the Island full-time from Vermont in 2009. 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 eXp Realty, LLC., 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 organizations in New York City, Boston and Vermont. While my professional background has been diverse, my focus has remained the 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 with eXp Realty, LLC. because its corporate philosophy aligns with my personal beliefs. My goal is to help my clients realize their dreams of finding their Vineyard Home and live the Island lifestyle. When not helping people with their real estate needs, I enjoy working on the never-ending renovation of our family’s 1840 farmhouse in Katama. I am an avid skier, tennis player and somewhat of a computer nerd. I often get into trouble by watching too much HGTV. My family lives on Herring Creek Farm in Katama with my wife, 2 cats, 1 dog, 2 horses and 6 barn cats.
