Tanya Sunshine


As a full time Realtor-Broker I am committed to providing great service and representation to Sellers and Buyers!

Being blessed to live in the agricultural belt of the Big Island in South Kona for nearly 20 years has inspired me to expand my knowledge to steward the land and Malama Aina as a UH Manoa Master Gardener and an ISA Certified Arborist. I love that we can grow our own food year round and enjoy sharing what I've learned. With a focus on sustainable, eco-conscious and off-grid living, I've earned the GREEN Designation. Also, having earned the e-Pro; Electronic Professional Designation, high-tech tools and paperless internet technology are incorporated in my business practice.

When I'm not working with clients, I'm in the garden, playing with my animal companions, at the beach and frequenting Farmer's Markets. I believe in eating local, supporting local businesses and actively participate in my local community.
My clients know me to be extremely dedicated; listening to their needs and responding quickly to requests. I take pride in what I do and how I do it with honesty, integrity and professional competence.

I am an enthusiastic Realtor! It's my passion to help people make their dreams come true; whether it's finding their home in Hawaii or transitioning off the island.

What my clients are saying...

Working with Tanya to purchase our property was one of the rare highlights of 2020! She is incredibly knowledgeable about the local area, real estate market, and most importantly the community. Her responsiveness and attention to detail is exactly what you want from a realtor. From our very first phone call, Tanya has been so friendly and helpful. Even now as we settle in, she continues to help us with recommendations and tips. Thank you, Tanya!

Tanya came highly recommended by a local friend. This was my first time buying property in Hawaii. I purchased the property while I was still living in LA so wanted the assurance of a knowledgeable real estate agent. When I first reached out, Tanya responded within minutes. She was so enthusiastic, pleasant and knowledgable. We immediately connected. While I had already seen and selected the home/property that I wanted to purchase, she acted quickly to submit the offer the same day. She cleared explained the entire process and assisted to set the escrow in motion so seamlessly. Tanya constantly checked in with me, giving me updates. I am so grateful for her efficiency. And loved her consistently pleasant demeanor. Tanya is a delight! She is a skilled real estate agent and have already recommended her to new friends I have made now that I live in Hawaii.
