Over time, we realized her skill set is ideally suited to our needs, especially in West Hawai‘i.”
“I wasn’t looking to make a move in my career, but having been exposed to a variety of different business models, the more I learned about Hawai‘i Life, the more curious I became — until finally, I decided I want to be involved,” said Lovette of her decision to join our team. “There’s a lot of opportunity in real estate in West Hawai‘i, especially now, so I’m really looking forward to it all.”
