2012 Big Island Top Producer: Pam Deery, R(B)

Pam Deery, R(B) is not going to get a gold statuette. She’s not going to receive a plaque or a newspaper advertisement and it probably won’t even get mentioned at the next quarterly meeting that Pam Deery, R(B), is Hawaii Life Big Island’s Top Producing Broker in 2012.

Top Producer Big Island Hawaii

Pam Deery, R(B)

According to our MLS statistics, Pam has sold over $63M worth of Big Island real estate since 2005 (Plus multi-millions from 2003-2005 that’s not reported on the MLS). What’s incredible is that Pam sold 25% of that total in the past 12 months. To say that she deserves the distinction of being Hawaii Life Big Island’s Top Producer for 2012 is an understatement. Yet Pam will never tell you – not in a zillion years – that she’s Top Producer, it’s just not her style.

How Do I Know Pam?

Pam and I met fortuitously at the “flagpole” in Kona, spring 2009. I was representing an Oahu buyer from our website who wanted a short sale about to be at foreclosure auction – Pam was representing the seller.

A few months later, Pam joined Hawaii Life and we closed our first transaction together – the “flagpole” short sale. From the start it was obvious that not only is Pam a consummate professional with a breadth of experience in this business matched by few, but she has a heart of gold. (Lucky clients.)

What’s Pam’s Trick?

Other agents ask me, “What’s Pam’s trick? How does she do it?” The answer is simple, but the application is difficult work.

  • Have a business plan. Take it seriously. Review quarterly and modify as necessary.
  • Set big goals. Set new ones when you achieve them.
  • Say no to business that doesn’t fit your business plan or your goals. Live in abundance.
  • Utilize teamwork and support staff like Smarketing and Transaction Coordination.
  • Always take the high road and remember it’s about the clients, not about our commission.
  • Get off island. Spend time with ‘ohana, loved ones and broaden your life perspective.

Congratulations, Pam!!

We’ve traveled an amazing road together these past 3.5 years. I am eternally grateful for all that you’ve contributed to our Big Island team, and for the support, knowledge, and advice you’ve given to me personally. You’ve worked incredibly hard to earn this distinction and you’ve done it with grace, laughter, and inspired us all. Mahalo nui loa.

    The first time I met Pam was when she walked into the office where I was working in spring of 2009 to tell us about joining Hawaii Life. Little did I know at that time the road we would end up traveling together! I am blessed to have found in Pam the ideal business partner, who is everything Katie describes above…consummate professional with a heart of gold. Plus, if you’ve worked with her or read her blog posts, you’ll know she has a wicked sense of humor! I could not achieve what I do without her and am soooo proud of what she’s accomplished this year! Here’s to even higher levels of achievement in 2013!

    Congrats Pam! It is so refreshing to be in your presence with your consistent ability to make everyone laugh. I have always felt and as many do that the humble person that does not write or speak “2012 top producer” everywhere she goes in the years to come, is really a stunning and gracious person! Now that really sparkles!
    Your success is obvious in your professional qualities. You deserve it! Happy New Year!

    Mahalo to you all; I would have replied sooner, but was on mainland with my “littles” enjoying the Holidays!

    Katie; it’s been a wild ride and I’ve enjoyed nearly every minute of it. So glad to have met you and have the privilege of working with you! You are an esteem bath.

    Beth; you are the perfect B to my PB Jam; I could not have achieved much of what I have done without your business sense and continued “education” in many arenas (pun fully intended).

    Erik; What can I say… you are my comic relief; and that’s saying lots. Good luck with your Oahu market and strategic move.

    Leiola; we have good things to come and I am happy to have you on our team!

    Mahalo David and Katherine!!

    Heidi; Stunning and Gracious.. wow; I am humbled!

      Kathy; If there isn’t some humor in it..why do it. This is a life style choice as you know..not just a J-O-B or I could sell cars..LOL Now that would be a wild ride..gone in 60 seconds:)
