Kathy E Awai

REALTOR SALESPERSON, ABR

I moved to the Big Island in 1981 and have never regretted it. Prior to that, I made my home in the coastal area of Laguna Beach, California.

Having spent over 25 years in the sales industry and for the past 18 years, selling real estate has given me the opportunity to develop many relationships and friendships. I have always placed a strong emphasis on client/customer satisfaction, always striving to make any transaction a positive experience for everyone involved. I focus on selling the Waimea, Waikoloa Village and Kohala Coastal Resort areas.

Because of my familial background, I speak Russian as a second language. I am a member and volunteer of the Waikoloa Outdoor Circle. In between selling real estate, I enjoy working out and swimming at the Mauna Lani Fitness Center as well as reading, gardening and of course, doing a little beach time. I feels it's important to take the time to reflect on how beautiful my surroundings are and how lucky I am to live in such a special place. I never take living on the Big Island for granted and I love sharing my knowledge and experience with my clients. I have made some very close and wonderful friendships through selling real estate and I treasure those relationships.

I always endeavor to live My Best Hawaii Life!

Aloha,
Kathy E

What my clients are saying...

Moving from Switzerland was a very big deal for us and Kathy helped make that transition seamless. She was vital in guiding us to find our very special spot in Hawaii. Thank you Kathy for making it all possible.

— Thank you, Elsa and Bob

Kathy represented us in the purchase of our Big Island condo during the winter of 2015. She did a great job for us in every way. Kathy is a long-time resident and has extensive, "insider" knowledge of Hawaii real estate. She's a good listener and quickly identified properties that fit the criteria we were looking for. She was informative and honest when we visited the properties, but not pushy, and she was patient with us as we went through the process of deciding whether and where to buy. Kathy was easy to reach and responsive to our messages. If she didn't know the answer to one of our questions, she found out promptly. She also negotiated effectively on our behalf and helped us reach a purchase price that was acceptable to us. We would recommend her highly to any prospective buyer or seller. She's straightforward, knowledgeable, honest, and understanding, and she takes a lot of pride in her professionalism
