Thirty years ago I came to Hawaii to be part of Chris Hemmeter’s opening management team at what was then known as the Westin Kauai @ Kauai Lagoons. Two years later I was recruited by Four Seasons Hotels to be part of the opening team at The Four Seasons Wailea on Maui. I spent the next 20 years at The Four Seasons Wailea, The Four Seasons Hualalai and as the opening Director of Sales for the Four Seasons Lanai – living and working on each of the major islands in Hawaii.

With a passion for the Islands and skills for servicing clients, I was very successful working with multiple territories and industries that included Fortune 200’s top meeting planners. I was fortunate to achieve great success in Resort sales, achieving Four Seasons awards for Top Sales Worldwide and multiple Presidents Club Awards.

The one ingredient missing in resort sales was the ability to provide clients and friends with a lasting experience. Real Estate was the natural progression for me to utilize the level of service excellence I acquired from years with the best in the business, Four Seasons Hotels.

I look forward to putting my skill as a negotiator and passion as a Realtor to work for you in achieving your dream of owning a home in beautiful Hawaii.
