Celebrating Roberta Haas, Founder of Hanalei North Shore Properties
Limahuli Valley on Kauai's North Shore
Roberta Haas is the original name in real estate on Kauai’s north shore. “Specializing in Rare Tropical Hideaways on the North Shore of Kauai” wasn’t just a slogan at her company (Hanalei North Shore Properties). For Roberta, specializing in rare tropical hideaways is a way of life…a way of life that she’s shared with hundreds of families, local businesses, and celebrities for over three decades on Kauai.
Roberta and her husband Gordon adopted Kauai into their lives in 1969, when they acquired land in the remote jungle of Limahuli Valley on the far end Kauai’s North Shore. In 1972, after selling their successful career-counseling business in San Francisco, they began construction of their dream home. Today, at that same home in Haena, they enjoy the pristine natural environment that originally called them to Kauai.

In 1977, Roberta became the second Realtor on Kauai’s north shore. Her one-room office in Hanalei’s modest downtown later gave way to Hanalei North Shore Properties, which Roberta founded with her partner Mimsy Bouret. As the Principal Broker of Hanalei North Shore Properties, Roberta pioneered real estate on Kauai’s north shore for the next 33 years, growing her company to become one of the top-selling real estate brokerages in Kauai’s history.
In 2001, Roberta’s daughter Courtney Haas Welborn joined family business and soon became Broker-In-Charge. With their intimate knowledge of the north shore, Courtney and Roberta are now a mother-daughter team selling the finest properties on Kauai.
In August of 2009, Roberta’s knack for unique business models led her to blend tradition with technology, and she merged her company with Hawaii Life Real Estate Services in 2009. As a result, Hawaii Life is now 3rd on Kauai in listing volume out of 86 offices…and is a leader in real estate sales island-wide. Roberta and Courtney are Hawaii Life’s top listing agents.
Hawaii Life is honored to have Roberta Haas, R, on our team. Pacific Business News recognized her as one of Hawaii’s Top Female Business Owners. Unique Homes magazine calls her “One of Hawaii’s Megabrokers.” To her friends, colleagues, and clients…she’s just Roberta, and she specializes in rare, tropical hideaways on Kauai’s north shore.
