Ben Puccetti


For the past decade, I have dedicated my professional life to providing exceptional customer service to clients all over Hawaii. Prior to real estate, I spent 5 years as a professional concierge and award-winning travel agent with a Fortune 500 company; coupling my vast knowledge of the Hawaiian islands with my passion for consultatively assisting clients in creating memories that last a lifetime.

On a personal note, I grew up in a family of 6 children (3/3) who moved around a bit before eventually settling down in St. Louis, Missouri. After visiting my older brother, stationed on Oahu, I fell in love with the culture, history and diversity that Hawaii offers. I realized then that I would do whatever it would take to spend my life in Hawaii and be fortunate enough to call this island home.

While working on my degree from Hawaii Pacific University, some of my most fulfilling memories involved working with the Hawaii Red Cross, Tripler Army Medical Center’s Human-Animal Bond program and other local non-profit organizations.

These days, any spare time not spent bodysurfing at Sandy Beach is usually spent hiking with my girlfriend Christiana, researching our next travel destination or listening to history and real estate podcasts. Currently dog-less, although our bird 'Pono', aka ‘Rainbow Chicken’ is surprisingly affectionate and gets plenty of attention/banana slices.

If you see me out cruising the surf lineups in town or around different neighborhoods looking at houses, give me a wave!

My passion is to help people by listening, searching and negotiating on their behalf. For my 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 my sellers, my dedication is to quickly and efficiently help you save both time and money, yielding the most desired results possible for them and the property. Your agent should be more helpful than your Zillow app. You deserve one who is ahead of the curve.

As an agent at Hawaii Life Real Estate brokers, we have the technology, experience and capabilities to market, search and produce the best results for our clients.

If you or someone you care about has had thoughts of buying, selling or learning more about real estate in Hawaii, I'm a call/email away and happy to help!
