From there worked his way up to a chef running Zachary’s restaurant in the Kelly House hotel. When the kitchen got hot he left and worked as a laborer with several local contracting companies. From there he study and received his contractor’s license and then worked as a Contractor building luxury homes across the island. It was a natural to start working with real estate so he study and received his salesman license and later his Brokers license from the state. This practical experience on how the island works and the relationship between building and land makes him a great asset to anyone looking to buy, sell or rent here. Carroll & Vincent believes in giving back to the island and Jim has worked and supported many local charities Boy’s & Girls Club, M.V. Youth Hockey, Sail MV., MV Preservation trust to name a few. As well as being on various town committees Jim currently serves on the Martha’s Vineyard Commission.

We are a member of the LINK network and can show you any property that is for sale on the island.
