Tanya Sunshine


As a full time Realtor-Broker I am committed to providing great service and representation to Sellers and Buyers!

Being blessed to live in the agricultural belt of the Big Island in South Kona for nearly 20 years has inspired me to expand my knowledge to steward the land and Malama Aina as a UH Manoa Master Gardener and an ISA Certified Arborist. I love that we can grow our own food year round and enjoy sharing what I've learned. With a focus on sustainable, eco-conscious and off-grid living, I've earned the GREEN Designation. Also, having earned the e-Pro; Electronic Professional Designation, high-tech tools and paperless internet technology are incorporated in my business practice.

When I'm not working with clients, I'm in the garden, playing with my animal companions, at the beach and frequenting Farmer's Markets. I believe in eating local, supporting local businesses and actively participate in my local community.
My clients know me to be extremely dedicated; listening to their needs and responding quickly to requests. I take pride in what I do and how I do it with honesty, integrity and professional competence.

I am an enthusiastic Realtor! It's my passion to help people make their dreams come true; whether it's finding their home in Hawaii or transitioning off the island.

What my clients are saying...

Tanya was an absolute pleasure to work with in securing our first Hawaiian home. She was patient with us over many months of house-hunting, especially since we were off-island and managing our search remotely. She ultimately found us a diamond-in-the-rough in a great neighborhood in Captain Cook that was both remote and convenient. She went the extra mile to find us dependable local service people, and to coordinate with the water district which could only set up a new account in-person. We wouldn't have been able to relocate without her expert guidance.

My wife and I learned of Tanya Sunshine by way of an excellent recommendation from another buyer. One of her recent clients we met by chance. A family just like ours looking for the same type of property and way of life. They gave a glowing review and shared that Tanya's extra efforts helped overcome a few challenges with their buying experience. After a phone interview and learning more, we decided that Tanya was a great fit for us given her many 'other' skills and interests outside of real estate, in addition to her depth of knowledge and experience in the market we are searching. What has impressed me most is the back ground of info she brings knowing the history of many properties and the people that owned them prior to the current sellers. This went above and beyond what we had hoped for in a buyers agent. To top it all off, Tanya is very personable and fun. This makes an exhaustive day of property searching much more enjoyable. Give Tanya a chance to help you find your spot in Hawaii or sell the one you already love.
