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.

We highly recommend Anna whether you're looking to buy or sell property on Maui. She is well connected in the local community and brings a mainland work ethic to get the job done. From start to finish, Anna was well organized, professional and worked tirelessly to get our property sold. It's such an emotional process but with Anna's kind and patient demeanor, it seemed effortless. My husband is a real estate broker on the mainland and therefore a pretty tough critic. To hire a real estate agent to sell your property when you're thousands of miles away can be a leap of faith but rest assured, Anna will work hard for you. We couldn't be more pleased with the transaction.
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
