Hawaii Life Makes Top 10 Residential Real Estate Firms

Hawaii Life Real Estate Brokers was honored this week in Pacific Business News as the #9 Residential Real Estate Firm in the State of Hawaii, for 2010. What an incredible accomplishment, for only our second calendar-year of business (perhaps needless to say, we’re the youngest company on the list).

The list is based in the total dollar volume of sales, which is a decent measure… but it’s not necessarily the most important, or honorable. One of the great things about Hawaii Life is that we’re in so many markets all around the State. Sure, our largest transaction was for close to $5 million, but our smallest was for under $10,000. At the end of the year, we’ve helped over 400 people with their real estate transactions in Hawaii. We’re a local, Statewide company. We’re not affiliated with a major franchise. We’re the only company in the top 10 who can make those claims.

I’m a proud Principal Broker and Owner today. I’m proud of the 93 brokers and agents who were our “Solid Representation” in 2010. I’m especially proud of our leadership and our employees, the behind-the-scenes crew who keep all of our systems up and running and our value propositions alive and well.

At the end of 2010, we had 93 brokers and agents. Today, we’re at just over 103. We’re not going to grow forever. We fully expect to be the smallest Statewide company on any list, but we have work left to do. We have incredible, powerful tools to offer buyers and sellers. They work. And, as more people see our results, we earn their trust, and their business.

I am so proud to be part of this firm and am grateful for all of the support and teamwork that goes on everyday. I talk to several agents at other firms who feel like they are “not progressing” or that their firm is “behind the times” and I can say with confidence that “Hawai’i Life is different than any other firm in every aspect”. Won’t be long until we are Top 5 and then #1!

Congratulations and huge mahalos to everyone in the Hawaii Life ‘ohana!! We have so much to be proud of and even more to be grateful for… We live amazing, incredible lives in one of the most pristine and beautiful spots in the world, and we are allowed the honor and privilege of supporting our clients through what’s often one of the most complicated, emotional, and financially critical transactions of their lives. To top it off, we are aligned with a forward-looking, thinking and seeking brokerage that offers us the latest in tech tools and traditional sales training, and encourages us to do things like “time block” our paddleboarding sessions! How does it get better than that? Our results are outstanding because our leaders walk their talk, they encourage us to be who we are – and who “we are” collectively is an incredibly successful company. Booya.

Being excited after 32 years in Hawaii Real Estate is keeping me at the top of my game. My son Jeremy dragged me on board over a year ago, kicking and shaking from the complacency and comfort of a large , well run company. The vision of youth has given me life as all of the new tools and technology are embraced daily at Hawaii Life. It is refreshing to see the synergy at work with our broker-leadership team statewide, we all strive to support each other and all of our agents.
Best of all behind the scene is the absolute best SEO and marketing team in the state driving success to the door. Matt, Justin, Winston, you guys may never have the largest company, but you will always be #1 in my book.

Our top 10 ranking and the Pacific Business News article are things we can all be proud of – but what I love most about this post are the comments from all of you. You can feel the strong alignment among our Statewide team, and there’s this knowing that we are doing a lot of things right. Thanks to my amazing partners, and all of the solid Realtors working towards a common goal. Aloha.
