Hawaii Life Big Island – How Much Have We Sold? (A Lot)

On April 9, 2009, Hawaii Life Big Island closed its first transaction. It was under $100K. We were one Broker and two agents (all of whom still work with HL) and we had no idea how this was going to roll out – we just put our heads down and went to work. 3.5 years later, I stopped for a few moments to take stock of where we are today – and how far we’ve come.

#4. Gulp.

I mean, it’s one thing to know that we’ve been competing for the top rungs these past few years – or to know that we sold our first $40M without an office on the island. But to see that since our first closing we are in the #4 spot overall? That’s breathtaking.

A Different Sort of Real Estate Company

Not to belabor the point, but we did accomplish this in one of the worst worldwide economic eras in recent history. Call it a fluke if you must, but I believe it’s our approach and our attitude that makes a difference. When others say “because that’s the way we’ve always done it,” Hawaii Life says, “why? let’s do things more effectively, more efficiently.” Instead of bemoaning the state of the market, Hawaii Life said, “You, our client, is our focus. How can we be of service to you today?”

Like moving to Hawaii, working with Hawaii Life Big Island is not for everyone. We operate as a team, and inherently that includes trust of and vulnerability with – each other. It takes a special kind of REALTOR® to join us. One who operates their sales as a business, with a written business plan and an understanding of their various ROIs. One who walks their talk – who puts their clients needs in front of their own – who is open minded and willing to learn new techniques and technologies.

Clearly, it works. “The Proof is in the Pudding.” Just ask any of our talented team.

A team, of whom it must be made clear, I am very, very, very proud.

Mahalo nui loa for all that you do. Big Island Rocks.

    Big Island DOES rock. We do this all while remaining incredibly supportive of one another and even our competition–I mean, our colleagues from cooperating brokerages.
