2021 UPDATE: 2020 was a challenging year due to the Covid-19 crisis and shutdown of our island economy, particularly tourism. Although we are very tourist-centric here on the islands, the shutdown kept us protected and secure. Last year inspired many city dwellers to contemplate a lifestyle of greater simplicity – one that is clean, safe, and free from the stresses of big city life. The Big Island is the perfect option for those looking for a complete lifestyle change. We are definitely seeing an influx of people from the mainland and elsewhere, and it is no surprise considering the beautiful island lifestyle, climate, and warm aloha spirit that you will find on the Big Island of Hawaii.


Our prices are the lowest in the state for land, housing, and acreage. Hilo is an extraordinary place to raise a family, for students to attend college, and for older adults or any age to retire. Please contact me if you are considering a possible move, or buying investment property on the Big Island, or on any of the Hawaiian Islands. I am here to assist you with my 45 years of expertise. I have access to everything on the market in all of the Hawaiian Islands and can work with you to find precisely what would fit your dreams. Allow me the opportunity and honor of assisting and representing you and your interests.


I am happy to call the Big Island of Hawaii home as it is one of the most fascinating, beautiful, and serene spots on earth. We have every climate, eco-system, and terrain: jungle, pasture, desert, forest, ocean view, oceanfront, and beachfront. We have it all. Let me introduce you to what we have to offer and be your liaison and Real Estate professional.


In addition to conventional Real Estate, I also actively manage several legal STVR vacation rentals in Hilo and Puna. Please look at the “Vacation Rental” link (above) to view the properties I manage. If you have an existing licensed STVR and are considering hiring a new Property Manager, please know that my years of experience are what you need to handle and oversee all of the aspects and duties required to supervise, administer and successfully market your property on the various different booking platforms.
