LIVE, LAUGH, LOVE…MAUI
…is the embodiment of how I enjoy living my life on the most beautiful island in the world. It is that same passion I bring to my business, helping others fulfill their dreams. The fulfillment of those dreams has created lifelong friendships that transcend the business element.
Arriving on Maui in 1974, on my way around the world I got stuck! A great place to run out of money! Six months turned into forty four years… forty of those years as a Realtor. My experience has encompassed ownership in the top producing Century 21 franchise on Maui for 16 years with 2 offices and 45 agents. Changing gears and getting back to one-on-one sales in 2000 I was invited to join Coldwell Banker in Wailea and became a consistent top producer in one of the highest sales volume offices on Maui. I have been recognized as a top 100 Agent in production in the state of Hawaii from 2006 to present.
Accolades are great but what I deem to be the true measure of my success is a constant stream of referral business. Clients who refer clients is the optimum compliment and is achieved through a lot of hard work. The joy of making what could be a somewhat tenuous experience run smoothly and effortlessly is a tribute to the years I have dedicated to my profession. My referral generated business encompasses working with the National Park service on a 1480-acre acquisition in East Maui that connected the Haleakala National Park to the ocean at Kipahulu; representing Pacific Century Trust (the trust arm for the Bank of Hawaii) in three different client trust sales totaling in excess of $8 million dollars, as well as representing a developer in the acquisition of the Elleair Golf Course and surrounding residential lands. These are truly rewarding opportunities that I take to heart.
My lovely wife of 18 years is a local island girl who worked as an educator. I have a beautiful 29 year-old daughter who is currently still enjoying the rigors of LA. I spent two terms (12 years) as a Board member/past president for the Montessori school in South Maui, which is the only South Maui School that provides alternative education. I have served on the Board of Directors for the Realtors of Maui Assoc. and I am a tenured member of that Associations’ Professional Standards committee and Grievance committee.
I feel blessed to live on the most beautiful island in the world doing what I love.
