I was raised in Hawaii and bring local knowledge, solid representation and warm hearted professionalism to my real estate collaborations. When I signed on to Hawaii Life as a Salesperson in 2010, I was always looking for a way to contribute and to grow professionally. I went from a solitary salesperson, to working on a top producing team, then to being a Broker Concierge, to Statewide Training Director, and to a Broker-in-Charge. Always embracing change, and with this valuable experience under my belt, I am now leading a sales team of my own. My team and I are dedicated to both sellers and buyers who value experience, excellence in service and results.
I have experienced the changes and growth of the Big Island, first hand. I was age 3 when my father was hired at Mauna Kea Beach Hotel and moved our family to the Big Island from Puerto Rico. Most of my time growing up was spent on white sand beaches along the Kohala coast, and enjoying the green hills of Waimea. I graduated from Hawaii Preparatory Academy, went on to live in Colorado for my first year of college, and finished up at the University of Hawaii, Manoa, with a Bachelor of Science degree.
Living the Hawaii lifestyle has given me a deep appreciation for the local culture and the natural beauty of Hawaii. My background and in-depth knowledge allows me to specialize my real estate practice, focusing on the Kohala and Hamakua areas of the Big Island. I reside in Waimea with my son, and enjoy having a deep rooted connection to my community.
"Selling our home in Hawaii was one of the biggest decisions we made. It was at a time when homes on the market were not really moving. Julie actively made sure that our home was being viewed by qualified buyers. When we did get an acceptable offer there were some questions about easements which Julie was successful in resolving to everyones satisfaction. In our experience with other Realtors, we felt that Julie went above and beyond other Realtors that we have dealt with. She excellent at what she does and besides that; she is just a really nice person." -Wayne & Joclyn, Happy Sellers
"Julie has been an amazing agent, and we have felt that she has always been looking out for us and our best interests throughout the entire process - both in buying and selling. We would never think of using anyone else on the Big Island. She is supportive without fail, but honest where it is needed, and we have benefited immensely from the relationship we have had with her." -Grace & Cecile, Happy Sellers
"My experience dealing with Julie at Hawaii Life Real Estate Brokers was more then satisfactory. It was excellent. She had to deal with a Trust situation involving negotiations between all parties involved." -Georgia S. Rush, Happy Buyer
