My love affair with The Big Island began in 2011 when I started looking for land to buy. On my first visit to the Big Island in February that year, I became a student of properties south of Hilo, including the second largest private subdivision in the United States - Hawaiian Paradise Park. It took about a year and a half to set everything in motion, and make the move to Hawaii. In September of 2012, with my wife of 30 years, I made the move from Boise, Idaho, following our son and two grandchildren to paradise. Since landing on the Big Island, I have invested in clients who have become friends. I have cared for and managed properties in Hawi, Kapaau, Waikoloa Beach Resort, Kukio, Hualalai, and Honokaa. Recently, I have been extending my knowledge base to Na’alehu and Hawaiian Ocean View Estates (HOVE), the largest private subdivision in the United states with over 10,000 1 acre lots. The Big Island is a VERY big place with lots of wide open spaces still available at affordable prices.

During my 17 year career with Micron Technology in Boise, Idaho, I worked my way up from production line operator to Senior Engineer and International Technology Transfer Manager. As an innovator and inventor (US Patent #7939877), I love learning new technology, and will use the latest tools available to serve my clients to the best of my ability.

As a full time Real Estate professional, you can expect excellent customer service. No detail is too small. Hawaii Life provides the resources to answer all your questions.
