Born and raised on Kauai, I had the good fortune of growing up in a prominent developer and general contracting family with deep roots on the Garden Island. My grandfather founded Blackwell Builders in Lihue in 1969 and Sleeping Giant Realty (now Oceanfront Sotheby's International Realty) in 1974. Developments started by my grandfather were Hanalei Palms, Anini Vista (completed by another developer), Kauai Gardens, Sleeping Giant Half Acres, Wailua Half Acres, Poipu Crater, Poipu Makai, and Poipu Palms. In the 70’s Blackwell Builders was thought to have built 80% of Princeville homes at that time. My grandfather is also credited with creating the concept of the CPR (Condominium Property Regime…ask me about this) prior to the County finally embracing it many years later. After Hurricane Iwa in 1982, my father established Curtis Law Construction, allowing Blackwell Builders to retire, and Curtis Law Construction to begin. I had the pleasure of working for my dad as a project manager and estimator from 2008 to 2012.
I earned my real estate salesperson license in 2001 and have now worked full time in real estate for nearly two decades. I also earned my real estate broker license in 2011 and have had the distinction of being identified as a Certified Residential Specialist, a Short Sales and Foreclose Resource, and an ePro (an online marketing and social media certification). I formerly served as Chair for the Professional Standards Committee at Kauai Board of Realtors and am currently serving as 2020 President Elect.
I specialize in residential sales and property management with just over 40 long-term rentals, 4 short-term rentals, and a rental clientele that grows weekly.
I maintain a strong commitment to honest, ethical professional practices and devote my full attention to excellent customer service by focusing on each client’s individual needs. As a result, my clients often become friends and come back time and again for advice or representation. It’s my privilege to serve the Kauai community with hard work, integrity, and a unique understanding and love for historical, cultural and rural preservation of my island home.
When I’m not hard at work, I’m enjoying my role as the proud mom of a college student studying archaeology. I also enjoy traveling, photography, camping, running, spending time at the beach, and playing with my newest “child”, Penelope, our rascally French Bulldog. My frecklefacefotography.smugmug.com website is an outlet for sharing my love of photography with the world. Please feel free to visit me there or at:
