I offer local style, global reach and local market expertise to my clients
With deep roots in the ocean lifestyle, Maui is more than just my home. My father, John Severson, an artist, devoted surfer, and founder of Surfer Magazine, took our family on epic surf trips and Swiss Family Robinson-style journeys through the South Pacific on the quest for the perfect wave before settling down on Maui in the early '70s, to paint and surf… I enjoyed a bohemian childhood, attending Haleakala school and Seabury Hall.
After graduating in Communications from UCSD, I moved to Paris (opposite of Maui!), where I lived and worked for 9 years, eventually becoming the Art Buyer for Yves Saint Laurent, although I would return home to Maui every year. On a trip to the South of France, I met my husband and in 2003, Eric and I married and moved, at last, back to Maui. And now I realize my dad had the vision: Maui is the amazing spot we have all been searching for.
Today, Eric and I live in Puamana, Lahaina, on the West side of Maui, speak French with our bilingual daughter Zoë, surf, paint, swim and enjoy life in our island home. We support the Surfrider Foundation and Maui Preparatory Academy. Sevo ended his planetary journey on Maui in May of 2017 and my mother, Louise, an accomplished designer of beautiful textiles, splits her time between Napili and Spreckelsville.
I am honored to be a part of the Hawaii Life 'Ohana, Hawaii's most innovative real estate team.The Christie's International Real Estate affiliation empowers me on a global scale.
