Founder, CEO, Member of ARDA Hawaii Executive Committee, Registered Resort Professional, Licensed Real Estate Agent since 1986. While working for timeshare developers in Hawaii in 1990, I quickly realized that there would necessarily be a need for a resale market wherever timeshares are sold and where resorts are located. This success led to the opening of my first retail location in the Coconut Marketplace in Kapaa Kauai. We’re now based on Oahu and Kauai serving all of Hawaii’s timeshare resale market needs.
