Katie Minkus, BIC is President-Elect of the Kona Board of Realtors!

Hawaii Life Real Estate Services is honored, humbled, and thrilled to announce that Katie Minkus, RB, our Broker-In-Charge of Sales on the Big Island of Hawaii, has been formally installed as the President-Elect of The Kona Board of Realtors. Katie has served as the Kona Board’s Vice President since 2008. Her nomination and installment as President-Elect shows that the Kona Board of Realtors and Hawaii Life Real Estate Services share in our complete and total trust of Katie’s leadership skills, commitment, and generosity (volunteering is no easy task).

We can’t begin to acknowledge Katie enough for her dedication to the Kona Board, and to Hawaii Life. At the Kona Board, her stand for education, technological advancement, and good old-fashioned hard work have earned her the respect of her peers. Realtor Boards are volunteer organizations and, as such, they require the leadership of educated and dedicated individuals who are willing to be accountable for the direction of the membership, their relationships to the Board, and to the community itself. The Kona Board of Realtors will be lucky to have Katie Minkus in the role of President for the term starting in 2010. (We can only assume that they know what they’re in for…)

At Hawaii Life on the Big Island, Katie has fostered a sense of equality and leadership that is directly in line with our company’s core values, and she’s done so with amazing results: In the 6 short months since we closed our first transaction on the Big Island, Katie has gone on to build a team of 4 Brokers and 5 Salespeople who have closed 23 transactions and taken 50 listings. These numbers are impressive by any measure, but the behind-the-scenes story of how and why these 50 sellers have entrusted Katie and her team with over $33m in listings, and how Katie’s team has managed to attract hundreds of new clients despite the depressed real estate market in Hawaii… that’s the real story. Katie has taken our core values of Hawaii Life, Smart Marketing, and Solid Representation… to a level that now provides an example and a standard for everyone in our company… and she’s turned these core values into success, from scratch. You’d be hard pressed to find anyone who loves living in Hawaii more than Katie, and if you know her, you’ll get that in about 30 seconds.

For all of these successes (and more) we recently acknowledged Katie at Hawaii Life’s First Annual Statewide Summit at the Outrigger Canoe Club in Waikiki this past Monday. Our entire management team was there, with all four major Hawaiian Islands represented. As we dive head first into the real estate markets on Oahu and Maui, we’re aware that our leadership now has an incredible model to follow, thanks to Katie Minkus, Broker-In-Charge of Hawaii Life’s Puako Office, “Director of Lifestyle” (a self-appointed title), and now President-Elect of the Kona Board of Realtors.

Congratulations Katie! We’re proud, grateful, and glad you’re at the helm!
