Raised in Texas and drawn to make the move to Kauai in 2009, I am immensely grateful to be in such a beautiful place and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.
My B.A. from the University of San Francisco in Mass Communication with a Journalism emphasis launched me into real estate marketing. Since segueing to full-time real estate sales in 2015, my business has rapidly and consistently grown with over $40M* in sales and many happy, repeat clientele. I attribute my success to an efficient, solution-oriented approach in which I prioritize my client’s real estate goals in every transaction. To see the results of my business practices, please view my testimonials and history of sales.
I’m a firm believer in taking the time to obtain a thorough understanding of your property in order to best represent you and maximize the return on your investment. This approach includes exploring your property’s features/challenges and analyzing the local market to best position your property for optimal results. I implement a tailored strategy of staging, target marketing, professional photography, video, copywriting, blogging, social media exposure, and direct email marketing to prospects and clients.
If you’re curious about where your property stands in today’s market, please contact me for a complimentary (and non-sales-y) analysis.
Whether representing a seasoned buyer navigating Kauai’s luxury market or guiding a first-time homebuyer through the step-by-step purchase process, I am passionate about helping people realize their “Kauai life” dream and am respectful of their process.
Curious about how I work with Buyers? You can watch my 3 HGTV’s “Hawaii Life” episodes on YouTube.
Outside of work, you can find me with my family, friends and two rescue dogs enjoying everything that Kauai has to offer. To name a few: ocean swimming, farmer’s markets, running on the beach and reading in the shade.

I never dreamed I could buy a home in Kauai, from Los Angeles, having never seen it in person! Somehow Lauren made it a breeze!! She took fantastic videos and helped us vet all our options. We now have a dream home with views of the entire Hanalei Mountain Ridge. Thanks, Lauren!!
Lauren Pingree listed and sold our vacation rental house in Koloa this year. She did a wonderful job for us!!! Lauren is a great agent! This sale of our house was actually enjoyable with Lauren as our agent! For starters, she didn't try to "buy our listing" as is oftentimes common when an agent gives you an unreasonable price to list and thereby wanting the seller to pick them. Her honesty and integrity were apparent throughout the process. Lauren proved to be quite knowledgeable in regards to the current market value in Koloa/Poipu. Her strategy in pricing our property and getting it ready or sale was right on. She had some great ideas as to the staging on the place. She also had the most beautiful pictures taken and the MLS listing was really well done. We received an offer within the first 2 weeks of listing and the house sold it in record time. Lauren is quite organized and did a great job keeping me current on approaching deadlines regarding the sale. As it's oftentimes complicated selling a vacation rental as us owners want to give value to our guests and not inconvenience their stay, Lauren proved to be quite compassionate and respectful with her approach and even left thank you gifts for our guests when showing the property. She's a great negotiator and has a certain "hustle" that seems so effortless and fun! We'll use Lauren again when we sell our next property.
