Robert R. Kendall, Principal Broker
Rob Kendall has been a full time Island broker for 40 years and provides services in real estate sales, rentals and consulting. He has extensive experience in land planning and open space conservation. One of his projects was the Farm Neck Golf Club. Charles Harff wrote on page 59 of his book, A Dream Fulfilled - Farm Neck Golf Club, "There was never any motive for profit, neither was there any experience in land design or development. For that, the partners relied upon Robert Kendall for the plotting of the property."

He helped to create Pilot Hill Farm on the north shore of Tisbury and loved the land so much he still lives there today with his wife and business partner Patty Kendall.
Over the years he has done consulting work for many private individuals, the Land Bank, the Island Towns and conservation organizations and has served on the board of directors of many Island organizations. His volunteer community work includes helping to found the Energy Resource Group and create the Solar Shellfish Hatchery in Tisbury and the Community Solar Greenhouse in Oak Bluffs.
