As a full-time resident of Kauai, I enjoy the aloha lifestyle. Real Estate is a wonderful way for me to share my broad range of business expertise and technical abilities with buyers and sellers from around the world who have discovered Kauai, one of the most beautiful places on earth. As the housing market slowed down in 2006/2007 I changed with the market to understand the complexities of short sales, REOs, and assisting homeowners that are facing challenges during this tough economic time. The Hawaii Senate recently billed me as "one of the isle''s top foreclosure expert". I''m proud to be a resource for our homeowners.
Using the same promotional, negotiating and people skills I developed as a business owner, I apply those tools to create value in building long term relationships with buyers and sellers.

As a veteran entrepreneur, I understand the key components of negotiating and creating workability between parties. Whether representing a buyer or seller, or dealing with a lender or mortgage insurance company, my goal is to create a win-win for all parties involved.
As a sales and marketing director in the technology sector for many years, I have a breadth of expertise in promotion, video, and marketing and I leverage the industries'' latest tools and trends to keep my strategies on the cutting edge. I syndicate my listings to over 25 real estate portals, and actively promote my listings on craigslist and other community sites where a wide range of people see them.
As a buyer''s agent, i serve as an Accredited Buyer''s Representative, a title I am proud to hold. I leave no stone unturned when working for a buyer. From searching tirelessly for the perfect property, negotiating the sale, and insuring that every concern is professionally addressed.I track the distressed property market on Kauai and know where the deals are!
I love living on Kauai and am very involved in our local community. As the Co-Chair of Community Servicer for the Rotary Club of Kapa`a, our club supports many community organizations on the East side of Kauai like the Boys and Girls Club of Kapaa, Hale Ho''o Malu, Friends of Kamalani Playground, to name but a few and is currently involved in water projects in India, Africa and the Phillipines.
I work with our local creative arts organization, the Kauai Concert Association, assisting in the production of our annual Red Clay Jazz Festival. From classical to contemporary to dance, KCA brings a diverse group of talent to our small island with a mission to educate and inspire children. Each artist does an educational service event and sometimes a master class.
My sports passions are primarily golf and tennis and with two titanium knees, I am very grateful to be engaged in both. Yes, I walk my dog Samson and take him to the dog park, and swim in the ocean down at Lydgate Park, but, you''ll often find me playing the links at the Wailua Golf Course or playing doubles on Saturday afternoons at the Wailua Houselots with a great group of local players who enjoy the social scene as well as the competition.
For fun, I work as a drummer in local jazz and funk venues, like Trees Lounge in Kapaa and Stevenson''s LIbrary
