Home Quest Realtors' Profile

I love houses and everything about them and as soon as I walk into one for the first time I know exactly what it needs and what kind of person will turn that house into a true home.

CRS, RB-13844, 1983

I moved to Hawaii in 1966 and never looked back. I’d choose to live nowhere else and am honored to be Kama’aina. My three grown children are all Hawaii-born, and I also have three grandchildren and two cats. It’s great to both live and work here in Kailua. I’ve been told I never met a house I didn’t like, and that’s true. I love houses and everything about them. As soon as I walk into one for the first time I know exactly what it needs and what kind of person will turn that house into a true home. That’s why I love what I do, but the reason I’ve been successful is that I also know how to create a win-win for buyers and sellers alike. Besides being a Realtor, I’m a writer and the author of the only book in print about Hawaii real estate, “How to Buy and Sell Your Home in Hawaii” (see more below). For fun, I write murder mysteries. I also enjoy painting, needlework, many different kinds of arts and crafts and participating in my eldest granddaughter’s school and sports activities. We’ve lived in the same house since 1986, renovating and enlarging it as needed for our family. It no longer resembles its original self and I’ve learned a whole lot about fixing up houses in the process.
