Hawaii is my home. I consider myself the luckiest person in the world to know this and to be living it. I’ve been in Hawaii for close to fifty years and in doing so, I’ve learned that these Islands are alive and wise in teaching life’s lessons.
I became a licensed realtor in 2003. I’ve represented both Buyers and Sellers on the Islands of Maui, Hawaii, and Oahu, helping them find their ideal homes, condos, land, and investment properties. Part of my success in real estate is based on my ability to locate the ideal property for my Buyer Clients, or the ideal Buyer for my Seller Clients; I’ve always had a knack for finding things. My knowledge of these Islands, is intimate, as I know their neighborhoods and environments, even the often unknown, hidden places. The tools in my toolbox that I depend on are honesty, integrity, and persistence………It just has to be that way.
My work background is as varied as my sales: at times, a special education teacher, landscape engineer, YMCA director, photographer, and a paperboy. I pioneered espresso bars on Oahu and was Chairman of the Retail Merchants Association at Ala Moana, the largest open-air mall in the world. I’ve exported local businesses to Japan and in doing so getting a taste for sushi that was so fresh, it was still moving.
I’ve been active in sports all my life, both as a player and coach. In college, I aspired to be a professional baseball player, (I coulda been a contender), before tearing my rotator cuff and having trouble with the curve. I love to travel, having caught the bug at 16, when I, along with two buddies, took a VW van up the California Coast, living on coke bottle deposit returns and Twinkies. I subsequently went on to circumnavigate the globe, experiencing the customs and cultures of Europe, Asia, Central America, New Zealand, and Africa. I’ve trekked the Himalayas and journeyed from Cairo to Cape Town; traveling by foot, bike, donkey, bus, boat, truck, and train. I surf, swim, and hike to stay healthy and sane. My approach to life is to trust my instincts, challenge myself, and seek new experiences. I believe there are no coincidences. Meeting new clients is serendipitous and meant to teach us and validate what and who we can be. I look forward to those relationships and working together. to expand our horizons.
