I moved to the island of Lana'i in 2004 and fell in love with the island and its people. Experienced in successfully investing in Hawaii real estate for over 20 years, I became a Real Estate Agent to assist others in fulfilling their dream of owning in Hawaii. Following my move to Maui in 2001, I found Lanai to offer "what Maui felt like to me in the 1970s". As Hawaii Life's agent living on Lana'i, I am eager to share what Lana’i has to offer. All land purchased on Lana'i is fee simple. "I love to work with clients seeking the quiet, Hawaiian lifestyle or a luxury condo at the Beach or in the cool Koele climate." As a successful small business owner for 30 yrs, I am able to assist in all facets of the sale for both Buyers and Sellers. I enjoy golf on Lana'i, paddle boarding, & meeting with friends for full moon beach BBQs . I enjoy assisting clients with staging their homes for sale and helping them to determine "which island and which area is right for them?"
Client satisfaction is my goal. I have built a network of proven resources to ensure smooth transitions for both sides. Also very familiar with West Maui and enjoy working with Maui Sellers and Buyers as well.
Known as the Pineapple Isle, it is the only planned plantation community in all of Hawaii, and has a historical designation. Hulopoe Beach still offers uncrowded camping in a well-maintained setting with paddle boarding and snorkeling. Hiking, mountain biking, ATV exploration, Horseback riding, skeet shooting, fishing, and hunting deer & mouflon sheep are unique to this island as well.
The purchase of 98% of the island in 2012 by Larry Ellison has brought renewed energy, job stability, and the goal of a sustainable island. Currently in the works are desalination, expanding solar, and upgrading the Koele Lodge Four Seasons Resort to a world class destination spa.. An interesting mix of plantation homes, vacant land and luxury condos and homes are still available on this little-developed island with NO stoplights and a 35 mile per hour speed limit!
Lana'i is also home to a world class golf course at Manele, built along the oceans cliffs, golfers find themselves looking out over the ocean watching for whales and dolphins, enjoying blue, sun-kissed skies, while playing this Jack Nicklaus course. The Exclusive Island Club Membership, available for purchase to homeowners of the Koele and Manele District on Lana'i, is a fabulous perk - Use of the Four Seasons Resort, Club pool and lounge, dining & retail discounts, golf plus other amenities are part of a full membership package. Ask me for details!
WHAT SHERRI'S CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY
"Our deal was extremely sensitive and somewhat frustrating for all of us. Sherri represented both the buyer and seller with professional expertise, navigating the sometimes unrealistic demands with a steady hand and clear focus. This deal could have easily tanked but Sherri's experience kept all of us on target. The fact that she personally gave so much of her time and energy, way beyond what was expected, truly carried the deal for us (the buyers). Sherri is a fantastic, knowledgeable and highly competent real estate agent. She is number one in our book." The Loaries
From my first conversation with Sherri, I knew I was in expert hands for purchasing a home far, far away on a remote Hawaiian island! Her years of knowledge about the island of Lana’i meant that she knew both the market here as well as the history of every property, and patiently guided me through the process and unique quirks of purchasing a home in Hawaii. She is quickly responsive, but has a warm, no-pressure approach. Since purchasing my home with her, I have peppered her with dozens of questions and ‘how-tos’ about living here. She STILL answers all my emails and texts and is an amazing resource in every way. Of course, I would highly recommend her. She’s a gem.
