Anna BarrettContact Agent
Raised in Oregon, Washington State and San Diego, Anna is a true product of the West Coast. Her family has been local to Hawai’i for over two centuries. Combining her family history with her time spent as a child enjoying summers in Hanalei Bay and on the Gold Coast of Oahu, it was always her goal to live here full-time.
With a master’s degree in communication from the University of Hawai’i at Manoa, she achieved her graduate degree with her thesis titled: “Intercultural Communication and Real Estate in Hawai’i: Cross-Cultural relationships amongst Real Estate Agents and with their Client(s).” Her research involving intercultural communication in the Real Estate Industry in Hawai’i is the first of its kind. While in undergraduate school at the University of San Diego, she was a Division I rower and traveled all over the country competing to eventually achieve 15th in the Nation at the NCAA Championships. Additionally, she studied abroad in Hong Kong where she focused on intercultural communication.
When provided the opportunity to move to Oahu, her mother, LeAnn Auerbach, and she created the Real Estate partnership of which they have always dreamed. Together, they partner to establish a unique combination of experience and innovative marketing and design techniques that proves crucial to the success of buying and selling homes in the Hawaiian Market. They bring a passion for real estate to their practice and find no greater joy than facilitating their neighbors’ transitions. They pride themselves in their open, honest and quick communication and believe that integrity is the most important aspect of their service.
Now that Anna and her husband, a pilot with Hawaiian Airlines, have returned home, they have begun following in LeAnn’s footsteps of renovating homes and they know what it takes to invest in key properties that have potential upside after thoughtful renovation. Anna enjoys many of her favorite hobbies including paddling her OC1 with her husband and dad outside of the Outrigger Canoe Club, running around Diamond Head, practicing yoga and traveling to Kauai to fish, hike and spend time with family. Her love for Hawai’i is the basis of her desire to continue to uphold the Islands’ unique culture with its roots in their values focused on their love for family and serving others.
