You’re Invited to the Opening & Blessing of Hawaii Life Hanalei on August 9th!

We’re returning to our roots as we welcome the experienced Kauai real estate agents and brokers at Hanalei’s Country Brokers to our team! 

Founded in Hanalei in 2008 by Matt Beall and Winston Welborn, our company later moved to more spacious headquarters in Princeville as our business grew. Though we’ve since expanded across the state, we consider Hanalei our home. It holds a special place in our hearts. 

“We started playing with the concept of Hawai‘i Life in 2004, working from a small office space at Ching Young Center in Hanalei. Much has changed since then, yet Hanalei has always been our hometown. It feels good to come home to Hanalei and the partnership with the team at Country Brokers is a natural fit,” said Winston Welborn, Hawai‘i Life founder and chief design officer.

Our new Hanalei office is located in the space that has been occupied by Country Brokers for nearly 30 years. Our clients, friends, colleagues and ‘ohana are invited to an office opening and blessing celebration on August 9, 2019.

Country Brokers has been a force in Kauai real estate since 1990 when the boutique firm was founded by R. Scott Lindman. Scott brings 30 years of real estate experience and a specialized team of local experts to the mix.  

“I’ve worked with Scott Lindman in both a volunteer capacity at the Kauai Board of Realtors and as a colleague here on the North Shore for decades. He’s been a mentor and an uncle to me and others, in business and in life,” said Matt Beall, CEO and Principal Broker at Hawaii Life. Scott served as President of the Kaua‘i Board of Realtors in 2007. 

“I want to thank the Kaua‘i community for embracing Country Brokers, and giving us the blessing to live on Kaua‘i and raise our kids and grandkids here,” said Scott. “From the depths of my heart, thank you. Moving forward with Matt, Winston and their Hawai‘i Life ‘ohana will couple Country Brokers’ community roots with positive new energy. Imua.”

Scott Lindman’s son Nicolas “Cola” Lindman was born and raised on Kaua‘i. Working in the family business, he has represented first-time homebuyers and high-profile clients throughout his career. “The fact that Hawai‘i Life is a local company with global reach is a very important reason we decided to join forces,” said Nicolas Lindman. “Hawai‘i Life is on the cutting edge of marketing and technology. We have a great Hanalei location, and I think we complement each other really well.”

Hanalei Bay is a favorite destination for both locals and visitors, for its white sands and vibrant community.

Located at the gateway to Hanalei, Hawai‘i Life’s newest North Shore office on Kaua‘i welcomes residents and visitors to one of the world’s greatest surf towns, with eclectic shops, excellent dining, and a vibrant community. Nestled in the Hanalei River valley between the crescent-shaped beach of Hanalei Bay and a dramatic backdrop of majestic mountains, Hanalei is a sought-after destination.

Country Brokers brings several quality vacation rental properties in the Hanalei to the already excellent portfolio of short- and long-term vacation rentals Hawai‘i Life Vacations. All of their homeowner clients will continue to be expertly cared for and marketed by their designated pros, who are excited to join the Hawai‘i Life team. Our advanced use of technology will enhance their ability to meet their clients’ needs.

Our Hanalei office will provide a third retail location for our clients on Kaua‘i, complementing our offices at the Kukui’ula Shopping Center and at the Shido Building in the heart of Kapaa town, in addition to offices on Maui, Oahu and Hawai‘i Island. 

Please join us at our upcoming celebration! We hope to see you there!
