Sarah Bakewell


E Komo Mai and Welcome!

I am a native of Kau‘ai Island, and now long-term Hawai‘i resident, who understands and loves the unique culture and lifestyle that makes the Hawaiian Islands a special place to live and work.

Having spent my middle years living and working in the Mid-West, California, Colorado, and Upstate New York, I have a well-rounded view of life in other parts of the mainland U.S. As such, I can grasp the challenges and stresses associated with relocating to Hawai‘i - a dream for many who want to live in "Paradise", but know nothing about the process.

To meet this need, when joining Hawai‘i Life Real Estate Brokers 5 years ago, I decided to spe­cialize in assisting local companies and their employees with relocation services to Hawai‘i. These niche services and resources I have developed over time have proven to be extremely beneficial in ensuring that expectations and needs of both the Employer and Employee are met, ensuring a high retention and satisfaction level for both parties.

Hawai‘i Life is locally owned and operated with 370+ agents and 17 offices State-wide. After an in-depth needs assessment, I assign the relocating employee to the best agent matched with their needs, over-seeing that process to ensure continuity and communication. Any issues that may come up along the way are dealt with quickly and directly. My goal is to make sure that the process goes smoothly and as stress-free as possible to ensure everyone's goals are met.
Please review my full services at I look forward to working with you!

Happy holidays to you and your family!

I just wanted to drop you a quick note and thank you and Ashley for the wonderful experience. After some great options to choose from I decided on the 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit at 1778 Ala Moana as my temporary home. While the finishes are dated, the views and proximity to the beach are perfect! Mom is going to love her visits in the new year!

Finally, I just wanted to say Ashley was wonderful!! She made the stressful process such a breeze and was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Please pass along to her what a pleasure it was and the fantastic job she did. Again, much thanks to you and your team.
