Conservation and Legacy Lands

Conservation and Legacy Lands

Conservation and Legacy Lands refers to a specialized area of real estate practice, as well as a category of property with environmental and/or cultural conservation values. These are properties that, in many cases, should remain undeveloped. In other cases the need is for conservation values to be preserved through sensitive development. Our Conservation and Legacy Lands initiative is a natural progression of Hawaii Life’s long-standing commitment to conservation.

The first goal of Hawaii Life’s Conservation and Legacy Lands initiative is to generate awareness of the role that conservation plays in Hawaii’s future and to further conservation efforts across Hawaii by leveraging the Hawaii Life platform. In addition to listing CLL properties, we are here to generate and expand a pool of committed buyers and donors for conservation properties in Hawaii and represent them in their conservation efforts.

Hawaii Lifeʻs Conservation and Legacy Lands initiative serves our clients by identifying and gathering information about suitable properties across the state, educating our brokers and agents, and refining best practices for brokering and marketing properties suitable for conservation through the specialized knowledge and experience of our Director of Conservation and Legacy Lands, Beth Thoma Robinson.
