As a transplant from the Canadian Rockies, I have found the warm ocean waters, majestic mountains, volcanoes and rain forests of the Big Island of Hawaii an incredible environment in which to work, play, thrive and enjoy life. I have owned property in Kona since 1989 and began my real estate career in 1990. Real estate is my full time profession and Clark Realty has been my office of choice since May 1993. The majority of my business is residential, condominium, land and project sales.
In 1993, I was recipient of the Realtor Associate of the Year award and I earned my Real Estate Broker's License in 1994 followed by the Advanced Buyers Representative (ABR) designation in 2005 and Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) in 2006. Currently I am working on the designation for Certified Commercial Investment Management and have completed the Ninja Sales Training Program and retreat. During 2009, I also served as Broker-in-Charge of the Kona office of Clark Realty.
It is a pleasure to be a member of this West Hawaii community and enjoy its many activities, entertainment opportunities, cultural environment and, of course, the weather (there are 13 climate zones world-wide and we are blessed to have 11 of them on the Island of Hawaii). As a parent, Kona was a wonderful place to raise my daughter, who is currently in college.
I invite you to come explore this wonderful paradise and, if you are preparing to buy or sell property on the Big Island, please call us to discuss your real estate needs.
Unlike some Hawaii residents, when the surf is up and the waves are rumbling across the beaches you won’t find me on a surfboard ducking the waves. Instead, when the sun is out and the skies are blue, my children and I are most often found upcountry at a ranch getting dirty with our horses. In addition to our stunning beaches, surf spots and great fishing, the Big Island also offers a spectacular mountain lifestyle with a rich cowboy culture. This is one of the many reasons I love the Big Island, and having grown up in Kona, I feel extremely fortunate to say that I have been able to experience all of the beautiful environments and culture this island has to offer.
Before joining Clark Realty, I owned my own Juice Bar/Cleanse business where I had the opportunity to educate and support clients through their personalized health goals with programs catering to their specific needs. The transition to real estate was natural, as working with clients searching for a home or ready to sell is also a way to support people in reaching goals that help them live the lives they imagine.
As a new agent, I have the great fortune to have joined forces with Derinda Thatcher, consistently one of Kona’s top producing real estate agents, who is my mentor and teammate. Together, we offer our clients the benefit of Derinda’s extensive wealth of market knowledge combined with the digital marketing expertise I developed in my former career. As members of Team Sold Hawaii, we are able to offer to our buyers and sellers an advantage in today’s market by merging the best of two generations of real estate practice.
