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. I run the family textile biz where we design aloha shirts for Sun Surf in Japan and Kahala in Honolulu. 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...

It is hard to speak highly enough of how great it was to work with Anna. I was immediately impressed by her deep knowledge of the Maui real estate market (and Puamana in particular). Additionally, Anna had the answer to every question I could think of and was consistently available to give that answer. I was never left waiting, never had to call her twice, and never felt like she was not 100% focused on our deal. Anna represented me, as the buyer, as well as the seller. All parties were very happy with the deal that we arrived at. Throughout the negotiation and escrow Anna was extremely well organized and timely, with step-by-step instructions and timelines that were invaluable to me as I navigated the purchasing process while working full time. Anna is thorough yet concise; I went from being feeling overwhelmed to feeling totally informed and in control, all because of how organized, experienced, and professional Anna was. What is more, when we were on the phone, FaceTime, or conversing via text or email, Anna was an absolute pleasure to converse with. You can tell she is equally as thoughtful in her personal life as she is in her professional. To sum it all up, Anna was truly perfect to work with.

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
