Life is fueled by dreams and here on Maui, those dreams of being surrounded by a tropical paradise do become reality!
Born in Denver, CO, I spent some of my childhood in Clearwater Beach, FL, but was mostly raised and cultured in Charleston, SC. I studied Engineering & Architecture at the College of Charleston before moving to Los Angeles, CA in 1997. There, I worked in both the movie and music production industries with 'A' List movie producers, award-winning directors, elite Hollywood actors, and iconic music producers and music artists. By the spring of 2007, I had relocated to Maui with my wife, Adriana. My career in professional sales began within the Shops at Wailea on S.Maui as a key supervisor with Quiksilver Hawai’i and then in sales with an authorized Rolex dealer, selling fine watches along with exquisite Italian jewelry.
Licensed in Hawai’i real estate since 2010, I then received my Hawai’i Broker License in 2019 and my Charleston, SC real estate license in 2020. I am also certified as a Real Estate Negotiation Expert, an ePRO Digital Marketing Technology Expert, and a NAR’s GREEN Real Estate Specialist in home energy efficiency and sustainability. Today, I specialize in the areas of South, Central, and North Shore Maui, assisting with residential home sales, vacation, and resort properties, as well as North shore estates on Maui. My goal is to continue expanding my network, stewarding and serving the community as best as possible.
Embracing Hawaii’s culture is very important to the Hawai’i Life community, as is understanding Maui’s island culture and becoming a steward to the island while helping protect the fragile microcosm. Hawaii Life's company mission and core values align with my vision and belief that each of us have a responsibility to serve our community at the highest capacity.
As a professional real estate broker on Maui for more than a decade and an Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR), I offer concierge real estate services across Maui. Whether you discovered Maui while on vacation, want to relocate to Maui from out-of-state, are seeking a retreat home on the island, or hoping to buy vacant land to build that new dream home on, I can help you find it if you can dream it!
As a Seller’s Representative Specialist (SRS), I also assist homeowners throughout Maui. The world is full of adventure! And if you’re following the flow of the next chapter in life and it leads to another island, state, or country, I will go the extra mile to ensure the best experience possible through each transaction of selling your Maui property. I provide dedicated, engaged service to my clients. And I am ALWAYS focused on your goals and best interests, with the highest regard and fidelity, and with a commitment to making real estate 'real-easy' for everyone along the way.
When I’m not working, I’m living a 100% Happy Life here on Maui with my wife Adriana, who I’ve been married to for almost 20 years. I’m also a local S.Maui surf instructor, and also enjoy golfing, going to the beach, listening to music, reading books, learning to play the guitar, studying foreign languages (my wife is from Brazil), creating art, and watching movies.
Contact me today for a complimentary 30-minute consultation on the current Maui real estate market or even to discuss finding the best price to sell your Maui home or property at. Or just reach out anytime you want to discuss beginning your journey and discovering your Maui dream home. If you can dream it, I can find it!
I look forward to our first meeting.
Above all else, Justin is a terrific person with a great personality, good sense of humor, and calm, kind demeanor. Professionally, his knowledge of the local market astounded me, since there are SO MANY similar sounding developments to select from. I don't mean he knew where they were, but he also knew all the listings in our target range, recent transactions, and the day's latest listings. He instantaneously answered every question we had, and on the one occasion he didn't know the answer, he simply said he wasn't sure but would find out. He followed up and got the information to us quickly. He clearly takes pride in his work. He worked with us as buyers while simultaneously procuring listings, yet he either answered or responded to calls and texts quickly, ever time. Once we went into contract, he established a three-ring binder with multiple headings, filed every document for us, and made the process exceptionally easy to navigate. I would and will use his services again, and I whole-heartedly endorse him for his professionalism.
Justin was an absolutely incredible realtor from day 1 and I would strongly recommend him. He was very professional, responsive, kind, generous and a very positive person. He always responded to any questions I had or any communication I sent him within the hour, and always kept his word. Responsiveness is so important with a realtor and a telltale sign of efficiency. He came highly recommended and it was evident why during our first interaction. The home buying experience can be very daunting at times, so having an uplifting realtor in your corner really pays off at the end of the day. His communication skills were A+ and he always put in the extra effort it took to figure things out. I couldn’t be happier with him and my home. Thank you Justin!
