John B Guard IV


I have the good fortune of being a lifelong resident of the beautiful Island of Maui. I grew up Upcountry Maui and have chosen to raise my family on the North Shore and Upcountry Maui. I have supported the family business The Pet Shop in the Maui Mall since 1973. Having been an athlete my whole life, my curiosity of and passion for health optimization led me to Pepperdine University where I earned a Bachelor of Science Sports Medicine in 1994. I returned to Maui and worked as a Personal Trainer at the Grand Wailea Resort and Maui Family YMCA helping others to optimize their health.

My focus of optimization began to shift leading me to become a Real Estate Agent in 1998. For over 20 years, I have been helping friends, family and treasured clients work in the Maui real estate markets of Upcountry, North Shore and Wailea. I genuinely enjoy helping people fulfill their real estate needs whether they be finding a first-time home, selling their home or investment property, building an investment property and/ or working on investment portfolio objectives.

I believe in giving back to this island that I call home through coaching, volunteering, being a role model for the next generation, community service and civic duty. I have been serving as the Vice President of the Hawaiian Canoe Club since 2007. I am a member of the Native Hawaiian Chamber of Commerce. I am a Kamehameha Schools Alumni member and member of the Seabury Hall Alumni association. I coached the varsity outrigger canoe paddling team at Seabury Hall, was a Maui County Planning Commissioner where I served as Vice Chair for one year and also sat on Realtors Association of Maui Board of Directors. I have been a firefighter on Maui since 2009 and just recently made the decision to close that chapter so that I can focus more of my energy into serving your real estate needs.

My experience is broad ranging allowing me the opportunity to better understand and meet your needs. My vision is that of an optimized Maui where the land and water are honored. I love water sports, mainly international competition in canoe paddling, one man canoe, surfing, paddle boarding, Jiu jitsu training, soccer, rugby, family time, friends, socializing, food, pets, work and staying active. I gravitate toward clients that have similar belief systems and hopes for Maui.

When you are ready to begin working on your Hawaii Real Estate needs, call me at 808-870-2227 or email at

Aloha, John B
