Cape Cod has always been a part of my life. Growing up in a suburb of Boston, I often traveled here as a young child to visit relatives and enjoyed camping each summer with my family in various areas across the Cape. Our days were spent at the beach or exploring, and nights were filled with campfires and stories.
We would collect sharks teeth at Head of the Meadow Beach in Truro, buy great fudge and climb the sand dunes in P-Town, and visit all the quaint artisan shops along Route 6A.
In 1986 I was fortunate to move to the Cape and enjoyed the beauty of the area year-round when I opened a business in West Dennis. In 1994 my husband and I moved to Harwich with our two sons and we’ve called it home ever since.
I believe the Cape offers more than a location - it's a way of life. Each of the many villages offer a unique character all its own. Whether you're looking to relocate your primary residence, or purchase a second home, the house you choose should reflect your individual personality and lifestyle. When the beauty of the area touches your soul, you know you have found your home.
Although I love all the seasons on Cape Cod, my favorite is Fall. The traffic has thinned, the air is crisp, and the ocean is beautiful. The bright red of a cranberry harvest, against a beautiful blue sky and billowy white clouds is picture perfect.
If you're selling your house, I'll suggest creative marketing ideas, offer staging suggestions, provide market statistics to help determine where to position your property, and be with you every step of the way through closing.
When pursuing your own Cape Cod dreams of owning a home on this beautiful island, I’ll listen to your needs, work with you to find the perfect property, help negotiate an accepted offer, and offer resources such as home inspectors, attorneys and mortgage lenders.
Whether you are considering buying or selling real estate, put my passion for Cape Cod and extensive knowledge of the local market to work for you. I welcome the opportunity to answer your questions and be a part of your team.

My husband and I were extremely pleased with our experience with Martha Knapp. She was friendly and professional, honest and informative, and ready to help us throughout our process. We felt that she worked for us, gathering information between meetings and really listening to our feedback when we were together. Once we found the right property, she was responsive and supportive throughout the negotiation process. Between the signing of the P&S and the closing, Martha continued to remain in contact, giving us information about everything from inspectors to local area points of interest that would appeal to all members of our family. She was attentive right through the closing, and remained in touch afterwards to ensure that we were satisfied with the process. We are thrilled with our purchase, and have already recommended Martha to friends. She was wonderful to work with, and a true expert in the world of Harwich real estate.

Martha worked with my wife and I on purchasing a vacation home on the Cape. From the beginning - selecting homes for us to see, to the end - closing on the house we had our heart set on, Martha was the utmost professional. She listened to what we wanted, guided us when we needed it, and got the transaction done even when issues arose at the last minute. If you are looking for a Realtor, we would highly recommend Martha, a great combination of warmth and professionalism.

Martha Knapp was thorough, knowledgeable and professional throughout this lengthy process. We were conducting a long distance search for a second home. She showed us more than 50 homes in very compact time frames, as we traveled a long distance for the viewings. Martha accommodated our schedule and worked very long days for us. She was very focused on learning our preferences, priorities, and quirks, and was very diligent in following up on issues to help us get to the closing. She has continued to follow up post-closing. We appreciate all of Martha’s hard work, her commitment, and, especially, her sense of humor.
