In 1994, Anne-Marie was the first in our family to become a Realtor in Hawaii. She was loved by all, her fellow realtors and her clients, and was voted "Rookie of the Year" by her fellow realtors.
I followed her lead, and was licensed in early 1995. We both had been in the medical field, Anne-Marie being a Registered Nurse (R.N.), and also my office manager when I had a radiology practice in Southern California.
We first worked for two other Maui real estate brokerages, winning many Top Producer awards, and then decided to open our own brokerage, Simon Properties, LLC in early 2000. We had fun advertising as Simon & Simon.
We invited our son Jeff, a licensed CPA and attorney in California, to join us as our eventual Principal Broker, and we were delighted when he did so in 2001. (When I announced to our fellow Maui realtors that Jeff had Anne-Marie's wonderful personality, rather than mine, there was loud applause and celebration!) :)
In 2012, we joined Hawaii Life, with Jeff being the Maui Broker-In-Charge. Jeff has been extremely successful in this roll, appreciated by his fellow realtors and his clients, as was Anne-Marie, who passed in 2013. I love working as a broker salesperson under Jeff! We enjoy helping Buyers and Sellers of Maui properties!
