Amy Sanford

Amy grew up in South Dakota, and spent many summers on Nantucket throughout her teenage years. Upon graduating from the University of South Dakota in 2010, Amy set roots on the island that had continued to be a constant source of happiness and adventure for her.

Amy understands the attention to detail and personalized approach that goes into creating the best Nantucket experience. When working with Buyers, Sellers, Renters or Rental Homeowners, Amy listens to the particular needs of each individual, and implements thoughtful plans to help clients achieve their goals.

In addition to owning a real estate brokerage with her husband, Amy is also the founder of Amy Sanford Wellness, a leading local resource for personal fitness and holistic nutrition. She enjoys living an active lifestyle, and spending as much time as possible at the beach. Training for her next marathon, trail running with her dog (Keiki) or strolling the Cisco bike path with her kids, Amy loves getting out to enjoy the natural beauty of Nantucket.

Henry Sanford

A Nantucket Native and NHS graduate, Henry had a classic Nantucket upbringing. After going on what is locally termed a whaling journey to College of Charleston, and some years working on Capitol Hill, Henry returned to the island in 2011. Establishing a career in real estate and purchasing his first home, he set his own local roots. Henry firmly believes in designing a purchase around the ideal lifestyle on Nantucket. With deep knowledge of the island, Henry makes a perfect coach when taking the voyage to becoming a Nantucket homeowner. When Henry isn't working or spending time with family, he can be found at his local beach bodysurfing or digging around in his veggie garden with his dog Keiki.

Amy and Henry were married on Nantucket in 2015. They have been blessed with two children, Jackson and Cecilia. They bought their first home in Cisco in 2011, and have been grateful every day thereafter for their life on island.
