Shoshanna Marks


My commitment to my clients and ability to exceed expectations make me a top choice for any buyer or seller seeking the best representation. I grew up in ʻĀhualoa on the Big Island. The island and community have a big place in my heart, and I am filled with gratitude to be home and helping my clients with all of their real estate needs.

I also spent some of my formative years in the Bay Area and graduated from the University of California, Santa Cruz. I co-founded and directed Cuba Wellness Adventures, developing all aspects of the business that led cultural tours in Cuba. The skills I gained while navigating complexities in Cuba, and US/Cuba relations, are a huge asset to my clients. My drive to serve my clients’ best interests alongside my focus on clear communication has earned my clients' trust and given me a reputation of excellence, hard work, integrity, positivity and creativity.

I bring the energy and focus of over 20 years of yoga practice to my work. Outside of work, I love adventuring with my children, dancing, and swimming in the ocean.

What my clients are saying...

Shoshanna at Hawai’i Life is a first rate real estate agent. She walked us through what could have been an arduous process in finding a property and made the experience a joy. Her communication was more than timely. Shoshanna made herself available at all times to answer our questions and even get ahead of questions that may have arisen. She absolutely made us feel like we were her top priority. As a skilled negotiator, there is nobody better to work for you in getting the best possible value in a home purchase. We can not overstate her ability to work in our interests when working with the many sellers we encountered and to effectively communicate the deals she expertly negotiated to us. Working with an agent like Shoshanna who grew up on Hawaii allowed us to understand the nuances of the island. This experience eventually enabled us to purchase a property below listed price, in a difficult seller’s market. We would absolutely recommend her services to anyone looking to buy or sell a home on Hawaii.
