I believe that the only way you can have a successful career in real estate is to be extraordinarily honest, and committed to the best interests of your clients. That means telling the truth, even when it's not easy. Or going the extra mile when it requires last minute TLC (on weekends, on a holiday, or at 8:00 p.m.). My clients expect nothing less than the best - and I've built my career on delivering it. For me, real estate is an all-consuming passion. I love the thrill of finding a diamond in the rough, or coming out on the winning side of a tough negotiation. I know the Big Island like the back of my hand, and I relish showing it off to my clients. When I started 15 years ago, I thought real estate was one of the best investments you can make. And 16 years later, I know it is - as a REALTOR, as an investor, and as a homeowner.
