Kristine Dugan


I am a real estate professional with nearly 20 years of first-class experience. When clients hire me, they not only get to experience my knowledge, but they gain the benefit of an agent who always works relentlessly on my clients’ behalf to exceed expectations while sharing aloha on the exquisite island of Kauai.

After graduating from Indiana University with a successful softball career and a degree in Management and Business, I began my real estate career in 2004 in Las Vegas, Nevada, where I worked with one of the top teams. I chose a path of teaching my clients, empowering them to make educated choices, which led to a number of designations and awards including the Certified Residential Specialist® (CRS) Designation and being voted one of the Top 40 REALTORS® in Las Vegas Under 40 Years Old in 2013 and 2014. I then relocated to Carmel, California where I led one of the top real estate teams in Monterey County. In 2017, my love for Hawai’i and its laid-back lifestyle, as well as the unique real estate market drew me to move to Kauai.

Throughout my career, I have been exposed to hundreds of unique real estate transactions, which has enhanced my credibility as an agent who consistently provides strategic advice to my Kauai clients. Through education and counseling, I cater to each client, providing superior service with the utmost integrity so they can reach their real estate goals. Committed to providing only the best and most timely information to my clients, my aim is to be the leader in real estate research, innovation, and consumer education so I’m your go-to source for real estate industry insight and advice on Kauai.

Outside of work, I'm an outdoor enthusiast who loves to spend my free time hiking, golfing, and surfing. I'm an avid snorkeler and love to explore the underwater world so I can swim with sea turtles. Whenever I'm not out in the water I'm finding ways to stay busy and exploring new adventures on Kauai.

As a trusted resource in the Kauai real estate market, I am committed to helping buyers and sellers navigate the complexities of the process and make decisions that meet their needs. By taking the time to listen to my clients' concerns and providing them with the best possible options, I strive to ensure they are well-informed and have the greatest chance of achieving their goals.
