Karina Vedder


In addition to being a Hawaii Life Real Estate Agent on Kauai, I have over five years of experience in Real Estate marketing and transaction management. I enjoy dotting all the i’s and crossing all the t’s. You can entrust me to produce high-quality work and top results for you and your real estate needs.

Since I grew up within 2-blocks of the beach in Southern California, I developed a deep love and affinity for the ocean. I spent afternoons playing at Mother's Beach and summers training as a Junior Lifeguard. Then in 2008, I moved to Florida with my husband Irwin (Sam) to be closer to his family. Irwin and I enjoyed vacationing in the Florida Keys, Costa Rica, and the Dominican Republic. We love the warm island lifestyle so much that we moved to Kauai in 2014.

I started working in Real Estate in 2017, and had my eye on the market daily. Two years later, I found the perfect home for Irwin and me - a 1935 plantation home here on Kauai. Although this was our third home purchase, it was also the most complicated, with a 105-day escrow!

Before getting my Real Estate License in 2022, I held positions as a Graphic Designer, Social Media Marketer, & Web Developer - with over 26 years of experience. I earned a Certificate in Graphic Design/Web Development at Platt College, School of Graphic Design, and a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics at the University of Central Florida. I also taught Middle School mathematics for several years and still enjoy tutoring my prior students.

I am so happy with our decision to move to Kauai. When not working, I spend extra time improving our new home and gardening. I enjoy the delicious food & fun outdoor activities that Kauai offers, especially mangoes, avocados, surfing, snorkeling, and beach walks.
