About Elise

Elise is delighted to be on Martha's Vineyard in another capacity, having visited and spent many seasons on-island since age 4. She revels in the multi-generational island stories told by her great aunt, mother, cousins and now her children, friends and colleagues. Summer friends become all-season friendships.

She looks forward to helping people search for, and find, just the right home from which they can connect for vacation, family gatherings and the renowned Vineyard lifestyle.

Elise's prior experience marketing golf and waterfront communities for the Golf and WaterViewHome Networks has prepared her well for introducing the island and its widely varied real estate to buyers.

Having lived in Washington, DC, Berlin, Germany, Princeton and Baltimore she loves to travel and is still "learning to sail" after all these years ! She is most proud of her son and daughter: Will Ryan and Liz Ryan Martinez.

Elise's love of languages also makes her the ideal agent for international buyers with her fluency in French and German, which she taught for 20 years at the Bryn Mawr School in Baltimore. MD. It is fascinating for her to see the multitude of island nationalities and experiences which makes Martha's Vineyard as rich in people as it is in beautiful natural resources, the arts and sporting pursuits.

To whom it may concern,

I would like to take this opportunity to express my thanks to Ms. Elise Ryan for all the good work

in selling my home located at 186 Oak Lane.

Her kindness and professional demeanor was evident throughout the entire year leading up to the

Sale. She kept in constant touch with me and answered all my questions. Her experience and knowledge

of the real estate market, coupled with her empathy that she expressed during our family's period

of sadness, was greatly appreciated. Because of her, I would highly recommend Landmarks Real Estate

to anyone wanting to buy or rent on Martha's Vineyard.

Hello Elise,

   I just wanted to send a note to say Thank You for all of your hard work and efforts on our transaction. I always appreciate working with an agent who works hard and has their clients best interest at heart.
I really enjoyed working with you and I look forward to working with you again soon!!!! M. is very excited to build his home sweet home.
When you have a moment please update the listing as sold in LINK...
Have a wonderful weekend!

Elise Thank

you for everything! We had a magical week on MV and loved the house. Pablo was able to stay with us the entire time and had the time of his life,

especially running on Lucy Vincent beach. We even dressed the boys up for Halloween and snapped some great pics there. So a belated happy

Halloween from flotsam and jetsam... We hope to be back next year!

"Hello Elise,
Hopefully all things are well this morning. Just wanted to take a moment to thank you for all of your assistance over the past few months which led up to such a wonderful family vacation on MV. With your help and useful tips we were able to really enjoy ourselves. 
The stay at  Stonewall was in one word -- incredible. The... residence is a jewel with some of the most breathtaking scenery I've ever seen, well maintained landscaping, and such a perfect location. The accommodations were well thought out, and the layout of the home was perfect for our group. Although there was an issue, we quickly (with your help) made the best of the situation and had such an incredible time."
So I just wanted to take a moment to thank you and the Homeowners. Hopefully, this will be the first of many trips to MV.  
T."   (October 18, 2015)

Elise has a great work ethic and is a good negotiator. She knows the Baltimore area and she is intimately aware of the many and varied nuances of the Vineyard and Vineyard living having been a visitor there for decades before moving there. Her family has been going to the Island and staying there for their vacations for generations. She’s been marketing resort real estate for 11 years and as such has a real feel for the value of an island home. I can thoroughly recommend her and her company. Additionally, she will always call or email you right back with an answer or tell you how she's trying to get it. She will honestly give you the benefit of all of her expertise without hesitation. You can put your trust in her with confidence. – S.Boro   7/23/14


We've been working with Elise over a year now on Martha's Vineyard, and she has been tireless in her devotion to finding the perfect home for us. Always upbeat, respectful, and thoroughly knowledgeable, Elise has been the best part of our journey in becoming homeowners. Though it has yet to come to a conclusion, we are very much enjoying the process- thanks to Elise, no doubt about it. We look forward to continuing our "hunt," and celebrating with our terrific realtor when we see the "Sold" sign on our new front lawn!

I met Elise this past summer on Martha's Vineyard. I'm a long time visitor always flirting with the notion of owning on the island but never ventured to do research or put a plan into action. Elise has been extremely helpful -- framing needs, assess location, upping my education on the island, investment strategy in general. 
Importantly, I appreciate her work style -- responsive, proactive but not over baring. Elise respects that I'm on the front end of contemplating a 2nd home and she is still open to forming a relationship. In time I hope it bares fruit for both of us :)Elise is definitely an agent to meet  12/26/2013 - cristel turner

I worked with Elise prior to listing my home. She always responded promptly, enthusiastically and knowledgeably to all of my questions. We had our home on the market FSBO and found a buyer prior to listing the property with Landmark Real Estate. Had we needed to list, I would have chosen Landmark and been very happy working with Elise. I would highly recommend both Elise and Landmark Real Estate. I did not rate Elise in the area of process expertise and negotiation skills as I did not have experience with this since we did not list the property.  – Lynn Niederlitz / Oak Bluffs / S. Circuit Ave # 67


We were looking for a property on Martha's Vineyard for over 5 years and worked with numerous agents and were ready to give up until we met Elise. I can not begin to say what a breath of fresh air and ray of sunshine she is. She actually listened to our desires and really worked hard on negotiating for us. She is a deal maker! She is my real estate agent for life. I highly recommend her without reservation.
