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. In 2003 I moved back as I finally realized my dad had the vision: Maui is the amazing spot we have all been searching for.

Today my family lives in Puamana, Lahaina, on the West side of Maui where we 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. My membership in Forbes Global Properties connects luxury home sellers with the extraordinary 133 million monthly visitors to Forbes’ digital platform. Imua!

What my clients are saying...

Anna sold my home quickly in the midst of a pandemic! She communicated frequently, keeping me apprised of interest in my property and general market conditions. She always responded to my calls or texts within minutes. She has a real talent for working with people and the interactions between the agents and the buyer and me couldn't have been more congenial. Anna presents the facts and leaves the drama out of it. I wouldn't hesitate to work with Anna again and can highly recommend her

— Puamana Homeowner

Anna made our desire to “someday own a home in Maui” a reality. Anna’s firsthand knowledge of the area, the microclimates and the different properties was invaluable in finding our dream property. With the COVID- 19 lockdown, Anna had to be our eyes and ears. She made multiple visits to the property, taking photos, videos and meeting with contractors since we could not. Once we were in contract she made sure we stayed on track, pushing when needed and being patient and positive the rest of the time. I would highly recommend Anna
