Me at wailea

Kathy E Awai


I moved to the Big Island in 1981 and have never regretted it. Prior to that, I made my home in the coastal area of Laguna Beach, California.

Having spent over 25 years in the sales industry and for the past 23 years, selling real estate has given me the opportunity to develop many relationships and friendships. I have always placed a strong emphasis on client/customer satisfaction, always striving to make any transaction a positive experience for everyone involved. I focus on selling the Waimea, Waikoloa Village and Kohala Coastal Resort areas.

I am a member and volunteer of the Waikoloa Outdoor Circle. In between selling real estate, I enjoy walking, & swimming at the Mauna Lani Fitness Center as well as reading, gardening and of course, doing a little beach time. I feel it's important to take the time to reflect on how beautiful my surroundings are and how lucky I am to live in such a special place. I never take living on the Big Island for granted and I love sharing my knowledge and experience with my clients. I have made some very close and wonderful friendships through selling real estate and I treasure those relationships.

I always endeavor to live My Best Hawaii Life! If you need help in buying or selling a property, I would be happy to help you achieve your end goal. Please feel free to contact me directly on my cell. I'm here to help you achieve your dreams.

What my clients are saying...

Kathy represented us in the purchase of our Big Island condo during the winter of 2015. She did a great job for us in every way. Kathy is a long-time resident and has extensive, "insider" knowledge of Hawaii real estate. She's a good listener and quickly identified properties that fit the criteria we were looking for. She was informative and honest when we visited the properties, but not pushy, and she was patient with us as we went through the process of deciding whether and where to buy. Kathy was easy to reach and responsive to our messages. If she didn't know the answer to one of our questions, she found out promptly. She also negotiated effectively on our behalf and helped us reach a purchase price that was acceptable to us. We would recommend her highly to any prospective buyer or seller. She's straightforward, knowledgeable, honest, and understanding, and she takes a lot of pride in her professionalism

Kathy, thank you so much for the candy. Ruth and I really enjoyed working with you and appreciated the professional and friendly manner in which you guided us through the process in Hawaii. There is no doubt that we would recommend you to any of our friends who want to either buy or sell property in Hawaii.
