As Hawaii Life's Statewide Director of Sales, Katie's role involves business development into new markets in Hawaii, as well as the management of the company's affiliation with Leading Real Estate Companies of the World and Luxury Portfolio. Katie is also the Broker-In-Charge on the Big Island of Hawaii, a role in which she's directly responsible for hundreds of transactions a year, as well as over 40 brokers, sales people, and support staff. After co-founding Lava Rock Realty in Waimea, Katie joined Hawaii Life Real Estate Brokers in 2009. Even before Hawaii Life opened its first office on the Big Island (now in Puako Beach), Katie and her team were responsible for over $40 million in sales. By the end of 2011, they were ranked the number 5 office in total sales volume out of 262 offices on the Big Island of Hawaii. Katie served as the President of the West Hawaii Association of Realtors, in both 2011 and 2012. For the Hawaii Association of Realtors, she is a graduate of the 2010 Leadership Academy and in 2011 was the Vice President, Liaison to Committees. In 2011, the West Hawaii Association of Realtors awarded her as Broker of the Year, and in 2012 she was voted "Best Real Estate Agent in North Hawaii." Despite her workload, and her adamant stand for professionalism in the industry, Katie is living proof that real estate in Hawaii does not have to be stuffy, unnecessarily formal, or pretentious. She's committed to "living her best Hawaii life" and encourages us all to relax, go to the beach, get in the water, and enjoy the incredible lifestyle that Hawaii has to offer. She practices yoga on a regular basis and is a self-described "recovering Type A personality". Katie and her husband Dave live in Puako Beach on the Big Island's Kohala Coast. When they aren't traveling elsewhere.
