Lara Hanson

Agent / Sales & Rentals

A multi-generation native, Lara traces her roots back to the Starbucks - some of the first English settlers to the island and one of the island's most prominent whaling families. Growing up on Nantucket and spending summer vacations camping in Maine led to Lara's great love of the outdoors and the natural world. As a teenager, Lara went to work one summer at the airport and stayed for 14 years, working most recently as an Aircraft Rescue Firefighter and Superintendent of Airport Operations. Having always taken an interest in the Nantucket real estate market, Lara switched gears in 2015 and joined Beacon Real Estate. She brings with her years of customer service experience and a unique set of problem-solving skills to all her clients, who she cares for both professionally and personally.
Outside the office, Lara enjoys coaching high school softball, spending time at the beach, and exploring the island off the beaten path. When not on Nantucket, Lara enjoys exploring Europe and checking new Caribbean islands off her list.
