I've been blessed to call the Big Island of Hawaii home for 15 years. Since moving here from Texas, I've been practicing real estate. I love what I do, and I can't imagine doing anything different! Ever since I arrived on the Big Island, I have focused on the Kona and Kohala markets. Having been through the experience of the real estate cycle we saw over the last decade, I am able to prepare my clients for anything the market has to offer.
I believe that a successful agent must work to provide their client with all of the information needed to make a sound decision. With that in mind, I strive to navigate my clients through all of the nuances of the Hawaii real estate market, with a focus on my clients long term goals.
I have found nothing as rewarding as working with someone to find their perfect property, or perfect buyer. For some people it's a first time home purchase. For others, buying in Hawaii is a realization of a life long goal. And for some, selling real estate in Hawaii will help earn a profit on a sale. Each client is unique and that makes each transaction unique. I'd like to put my passion to work for you.
For my personal business, my philosophy is simple; focus on providing the highest level of service possible while maintaining an ethical approach, and everything else will fall into place. I don't have to focus on short term goals, or commissions. With this I have built and I continue to expand a strong referral base and clients for life who have worked with me multiple times.
I believe in giving back to my local community and my real estate community.

In my free time
Living on the Big Island has been more exciting and rewarding than I ever expected. My wife and I love to enjoy all that the island has to offer. We're both athletic, and we love hiking, biking, swimming (me), running (her), and socializing! This path of athletics even led me to do something I never thought possible by being a finisher at the 2013 Ironman World Championships here in Kona. I've also caught the shutterbug, and love taking photos. I've been known to send larger prints to my buyers as a welcome to Hawaii gift!
