Raised on the beautiful Monterey Peninsula in California, and later moving to Hawaii with my wife, I have been fortunate to be surrounded by stunning architecture, tropical natural surroundings, and environments with a sense of culture.
Beginning my career in real estate while still in high school has provided me with over a decade of experience in learning and actively practicing every facet of the real estate industry.
Quickly working up to marketing director of a luxury boutique brokerage, I was able to experience and implement strategies to successfully market unique one-of-a-kind properties. I had the opportunity to spend several years working on large multi-location commercial leases and overseeing property development for a national franchise brand. During this time, I found a connection between several of my life-long passions: beautiful residential architecture and design, along with property development, planning and construction. I have spent the last several years working on personal real estate development projects as well as representing clients of properties including vacant land, condos, NNN commercial, and beautiful ocean-front community homes.
Often, I remind myself of how blessed I am to be pursuing and enjoying my own passions while providing service to clients across the country. Being personally invested in multiple properties drives me to keep a constant pulse on the market and provides the ability to share firsthand experience of current trends and trajectories both financially and aesthetically. A unique blend and understanding of real estate transactions, finance, property development, design, and construction have resulted in multiple record-setting sales (in both Hawaii and California) for several projects I have either personally owned or represented. I believe there is a strong and necessary balance between number-crunching analytics and the beauty of certain pieces of land and dwellings.
It is one of my greatest joys to be able to walk a property on the beautiful Big Island with a client, and share my vision for the property and my passion for the industry; whether you are looking for land to build your dream home, or trying to sell an existing residence, it would be my pleasure to share those insights with you.
