Hawai‘i Life Acquires Home Shoppe Hawai‘i
Hawai‘i Life has acquired the Kailua-based Home Shoppe Hawai‘i LLC, a boutique brokerage firm owned and operated by Yvonne Ahearn. Home Shoppe Hawai‘i has been in operation since 2010, predominantly servicing clients on the Windward side of Oahu.
This latest addition is the third significant acquisition by Hawai‘i Life this year. The company’s growth has included the acquisition of luxury brokerage firms CHOI International in Honolulu and Mauna Kea Realty on Hawai‘i Island.
“As we celebrate ten years of success statewide, we are excited to strengthen our presence in Windward Oahu with the addition of Home Shoppe Hawaii. Their team is aligned with our commitment to both personalized client care and leading-edge marketing strategies. As we grow, we strive to maintain our focus on the relationships and personalized service that drive our business,” said Hawai‘i Life CEO Matt Beall.
Yvonne Ahearn will continue to lead and expand her team of realtors, strengthening Hawai‘i Life’s presence in Windward Oahu. Ahearn is a three-time Aloha ‘Āina REALTOR® “People’s Choice” Award winner and has been a consistent nominee since 2010. An attorney for more than 28 years, Ahearn became a Hawai‘i resident in 2004 and has been a licensed agent and broker on Oahu since 2007.
Ahearn’s small team has also dedicated their full-service agency to client care and distinguished marketing. Ahearn noted, “I’ve always admired Hawai‘i Life, their brand, and their effective marketing. We decided to join forces with them to leverage these advantages, but also due to their company culture. Despite their size, they mirror my small firm’s dedication to customer service. I appreciate how they’ve executed their brand strategy so successfully while maintaining their company’s personal and caring culture.”
Home Shoppe Hawai‘i’s listings, clients, and properties under management will be represented by Hawai‘i Life beginning June 1, 2018. Home Shoppe Hawai‘i agents will become part of the Hawai‘i Life team of nearly 300 agents and 16 offices statewide.
