For twenty years, Carrie has been a top-producing real estate professional dedicated to the luxury real estate market on the Big Island of Hawai‘i. She serves her clients and her community as a Broker-in-Charge at Hawai‘i Life, Director of Sales & Marketing at Hokulia and a Director of Hawai‘i Life One - Big Island, the company’s concierge suite of services, as well as a curated collection of Hawai‘i's most exceptional properties and locations.

Carrie began her real estate career at Clark Realty and quickly became a top producer, and through hard work and focused determination, she has led her field in the Top Broker rankings since then. As Principal Broker of Kukio Properties, she led the development’s sales team, representing discerning buyers and sellers who value excellence, knowledge, and personalized results. She has been recognized multiple times as one of the Top real estate agent in Hawai‘i by Hawai‘i Business magazine.
