Anna Severson


Kama’aina, mother, real estate broker and banana bread maker.

I offer local style, global reach and local market expertise to my clients - with over $95M in sales.

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.

I just finished buying three more real estate properties with Anna Severson in the last two months. These properties were on Molokai, the first property she represented me was a total grand slam in West Maui and again I am so pleased with her hard work and professionalism. Not only does she have the ability to go through all the listings whether they’re on the MLS or not she seems to be able to dig deeper than everyone and find these real estate properties and then is an amazing negotiator since I have done unbelievable at getting the lowest possible price with her at the helm.

The West Maui beach front project already appreciated 86% since I bought it 18 months ago.

Her amazing strategies and suggestions have allowed me to buy four properties that I thought I’d never be able to purchase ats such low prices. My West Maui property is 14 feet from the water. My Molokai properties are 50 to a couple hundred feet from the water. Anna is like having a family member and the best real estate agent on the planet available whenever you need her to nail down the deal and then take care of all the complications that can come into play in a real estate transaction. She typically anticipates them and solves them before they even become an issue and then lets me know about it later. I now have the best realtor in the Hawaiian islands for the rest of my life. Her name is Anna Severson!
