Katie Minkus


As Director of Business Development for Hawaii Life, my role involves interfacing with project developers, cooperating brokerages and property management companies, as well as our corporate relocation services. I facilitate mergers and acquisitions on behalf of the company. I am also responsible for growing Hawaii Life's rental business across all channels.

I started with Hawaii Life over 8 years ago. As the Statewide Director of Sales I led the company to our all time high - over $1.1 B in residential real estate sales. I participated and helped to facilitate the company’s mergers and acquisitions, while also managing the team of Brokers-In-Charge on each island.

Helping to facilitate the growth of the company has provided powerful access to the network of brokers and agents within the firm, and with our global partners. As members of Christie's International Real Estate and Luxury Portfolio International, we’re able to provide an extended reach on behalf of project developers, vacation rental owners and partners, and corporate clients.

We’ve built an incredible company culture that values people and stewardship. Over 22 Million people watch us live on HGTV. We are Hawaii’s third largest brokerage in both sales volume and transaction sides, and we’re still in growth mode. It’s exciting to contribute to a company whose core values match my own, where professionals are given tools to grow and encouraged to enjoy their lives.

Leadership matters. Culture is King. Excellence results. Welcome to Hawaii Life.
