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. While I still actively represent sellers and buyers, I was also named Broker-in-Charge in 2015.
I bring a unique skill set to the leadership position. 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.
Being a real estate specialist in the districts of North and South Kohala on the Big Island is 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 prospective buyers off-road across a large ranch acreage with views of snow-capped Mauna Kea. I represent both buyers and sellers of first-class Big Island properties, from the Kohala Coast resorts to upcountry ranches and horse properties.
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? Why the Big Island? 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?" Iʻd encourage you to get to know me through my writing. Then give me a call!
