Born in Missouri, my big family moved around the country frequently and through the years, I've called multiple states 'home'. About a decade ago, I visited Oahu for the first time, returned back to my Midwestern college town and sold everything I couldn't fit in an oversized duffel bag.
Over the next few years, I earned a Bachelor's degree in Communication from Hawaii Pacific University, volunteered with the Hawaii Red Cross and spent 5 years as a professional concierge and award-winning travel agent with a Fortune 500 company. It was in this position that I realized my passion; coupling my extensive knowledge and love of the Hawaiian islands with my skill-set of consulting and assisting people.
In my real estate business, the clients whom I have the privilege of working for appreciate my clear communication and dependability. We strategize together, we work together and we build a relationship that lasts beyond the scope of a real estate 'transaction'. As a full-service Realtor®, I often find myself doing things like helping move furniture, finding a buyer for artwork or meeting painters and plumbers at the property for estimates.
Not every agent is the perfect fit for every client and it's key that you can trust and communicate with one another. My passion is to help by listening, searching and negotiating, with and for my clients. For home buyer-clients, I find and secure the best homes possible fitting their dreams and budget, in one of the most expensive and competitive real estate markets in the country. For home sellers, my dedication is to quickly and efficiently help save both time and money, yielding the most desired results possible for them and the property.
An agent should be more helpful than an application on your phone. Realtors should be problem solvers. Conflict resolution specialists. Trusted advisors. Clients in today's market deserve one who is ahead of the curve and willing to go the extra mile.
Behind the scenes at Hawaii Life, our tech, marketing and design team give us the exposure that continues to produce the best results possible. We own and operate the #1 real estate website in the state and are 100% locally owned and operated. Not your average brokerage, we are deeply rooted in the communities we live and work in.
If you're interested and want to know more about what I do for clients, let's talk. We'll go over your situation, your goals, and the current real estate market. Whether we decide to work together or not, I'm here to help as your Oahu real estate resource.
