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.
I want to thank you Justin, For everything that you have done to making the purchase of our house a great experience. It has been an ongoing process for several years with most of the time spent just finding the right place for us. Among your many great qualities, patience stands out to me. You understood our past experience with a home we bought on the Island of Hawaii and how big an issue it was for us to commit to buying another home. We looked at countless homes and at each one you shared your expertise with us which was very valuable. You never pushed us and you were always willing to give up time – often on weekends- to look at yet another house. We also appreciate that even on short notice you were always prepared with the appropriate comps or background on the prospective house. I think you went over and above for us and initially when we decided to buy the home, Theo -our son – was sad because he thought he would not see you again. We have truly enjoyed the home buying experience with you and consider you our friend.
Justin is awesome, very trustworthy, honest and will do the work needed by a true professional.
