Services for Buyers

We offer up-to-the-minute market knowledge and solid representation to help our buyer clients make smart, informed decisions. By setting up customized computer searches, we can notify you of new properties that match your criteria as soon as they become available. Working together, we are able to keep a close eye on the market, and move quickly when the right opportunities present themselves. The Kauai real estate marketplace is strongly influenced by local conditions, including neighborhood characteristics, zoning regulations, and a myriad of environmental factors. Our local knowledge, gained over decades of living and working on Kauai is focused upon making sure that our clients know everything they need to know about a property before they close on a purchase.

Buyer's Agency

We believe that Buyer’s Agency is one of the most powerful services in the real estate industry. As your Agent, we represent you, not the Seller. It is exclusivity that distinguishes a Buyer’s Agent from the Seller’s Agent (a.k.a. the Listing Agent) who is the legal representative of the seller. Contracting us to work for you will help to avoid many conflicts of interest.

Once contracted, we go immediately to work on your behalf. We get started by evaluating your goals and resources. Then we work with you until you have a solid understanding of your choices within the market.

Services for Sellers

Massive web traffic, targeted marketing, and representation without compromise.

Internet Driven Smart Marketing

The Hawaii Life marketing strategy is internet-driven. It is absolutely critical that properties get exposure online and that prospective buyers can search and find exactly what they are looking for –- a home, at a price, in a place, with attributes X, Y & Z. We promote your property to a global audience of potential buyers and to the local community of active real estate professionals. Marketing campaigns utilize userfriendly technology, professional imagery, selective print media, and targeted email communications to cast a wide net of influence. Our listings also receive exposure on Luxury Portfolio, a website which features exquisite properties, targeting global buyers for luxury homes and estates.

Our Hawaii Life website delivers results better than any other. We are the #1 ranked website on Google and other search engines for search terms like ”Kauai Real Estate” and ”Hawaii Real Estate.” It is both powerful and effective.

Solid Representation

Our professional commitment is to provide unsurpassed service and representation throughout a transaction. With integrity, honesty, full disclosure, loyalty and care, we help our clients to navigate the selling process and avoid the many costly and time-consuming pitfalls that can show up. We always consider that a home purchase (or sale) is typically the most important financial decision that people make in their lives, and we treat each transaction as though our own interests are at stake.

Buyer Lead Management

We receive about 270,000 unique visitors to our website each month nearly 8x’s that of our closest competitors. This high volume of web traffic results in a large number of inquiries from prospective buyers. To manage all of our leads, we have developed proprietary software that helps us to track our clients from their initial inquiry all the way to their eventual purchase. This allows us understand what prospective purchasers are looking for online, and to customize our marketing to target buyers who have indicated their specific interests to us.
