R(B) DIRECTOR, CONSERVATION AND LEGACY LANDS, BROKER-IN-CHARGE

I was one of the first agents to join Hawaii Life on the Big Island in 2009. After just one conversation with the founders, I knew Iʻd just seen the future of real estate, a future that was customer-oriented rather than agent-oriented. I represent both buyers and sellers of first-class Big Island properties, from the Kohala Coast resorts to upcountry ranches and horse properties. Additionally, I was named Broker-in-Charge in 2015.

In 2018 I was asked to become Hawaii Lifeʻs Director of Conservation and Legacy Lands. In this position I lead the firmʻs efforts as a resource for owners and sellers of properties with conservation values state-wide. The goal is to generate awareness for the role that conservation plays in Hawai’i's future and leverage the Hawaii Life platform on behalf of conservation-minded sellers and buyers of real estate.

I bring a unique skill set to the leadership roles. After receiving a B.A. degree in mathematics from the University of Colorado at Boulder and a Ph.D. in Economics from Colorado School of Mines, I spent more than a decade working around the world as a Wall Street banker. I then ran consulting and leadership development businesses prior to my real estate career.

All these roles present a wonderful challenge for someone with an analytical mind and a love of the outdoors. One day I might be found watching whales frolic from an oceanfront resort listing and the next Iʻm driving off-road across a large ranch acreage with views of snow-capped Mauna Kea.

Clients often find me through my Hawaii Life blog posts. I believe in the power of place and I believe in the power of the written word and the stories we tell. Those are good reasons I found my ‘place’ on the Island of Hawaii, and they are also reasons why I blog.

"Why Hawaii? Which lifestyle and location? Which is the best way to buy or sell a home on the Island? How do I bring over my horse? The property I am looking at has archeological studies. What do I need to do to preserve the cultural resources?" Iʻd encourage you to get to know me through my writing. Then give me a call!

Aloha,
Beth
