Aloha and welcome! I'm a retired engineer who has been a full-time Hawaii real estate agent since 2004.
I'm pleased to promote my CRS designation which is only available to agents who have met the stringent Certified Residential Specialist educational and sales requirements.
When I retired from my 35-year engineering career, I wanted to continue working in a new field and decided to become a real estate agent. Educational requirements were (and still are) minimal without even a need for a high school diploma. Agents take a short class, pass a state exam, and are then deemed qualified to sell multi-million dollar properties. In practice, we actually learn on-the-job with the assistance of our brokers which makes years of experience critical for helping our clients. I've been selling Hawaii real estate since 2004 and plan to continue indefinitely. My life plan is to never quit working, never quit learning, never quit helping others buy and sell homes, never quit doing the same for myself, and never quit having fun.
I've been in the business long enough to have seen a lot of issues that I know how to overcome. Things like a buyer trying to hold a seller hostage without making the deposits, Things like how to handle transfer of vacation rental reservations when the managing company refuses to transfer. Things like what to do after discovering that the gorgeous property just purchased won't qualify for a building permit. These are some of the real-world issues I've experienced and resolved. I offer my experience, problem-solving skills, attention to detail, and love for helping others to those looking to buy or sell properties in Hawaii.
