Brittany Golding
Associate REALTOR®
Massachusetts licensed real estate salesperson

For Brittany, the Martha’s Vineyard magic began 11 years ago. First as a summer job waiting tables, then as a newly wed with a husband she had met on the Vineyard, and now, home with a family, and a real estate career.

Two life experiences that have prepared her unusually well for her new focus — the self discipline and team work of being a competitive dancer for most of her life, and the professionalism, service, and client confidentiality from being a licensed massage therapist with a high profile, VIP list of clients.

But perhaps it is her laugh and enthusiasm that are so contagious. She says, “When I build client relationships, I devout myself to making that relationship a priority, with a sense of understanding, compassion, and trust.”

Some of her early Martha’s Vineyard magical experiences are still some of her favorites. She loves all the lighthouses and how unique they are. Ditto for the beaches. And she’s still very active, and likes to get out and run or hike some of her Vineyard favorites, including Menemsha Hills.

She lives in Edgartown with her husband and young daughter, and their golden retriever.
