Maui’s Top 3% Realtors 2019
On a humid, balmy August evening, Fidelity National & Escrow, Homes and Land Magazine and invited Nā hoa (partner) sponsors, honored Maui’s Top 3% REALTORS 2019 at the Humble Market Kitchin.
On Maui, there are over 1,750+ licensed real estate agents who sell the dream of owning on Maui. From local residents to second home owners, Maui is a place where vacationers flock to, retirees settle, and the local residents remain, raising their own children on this island.
Attendees gathered together for an evening of a delicious buffet from the kitchen of Roy Yamaguchi, listened to the local music of Tom Conway, and were inspired by special guest, Kainoa Horcajo, Hawaiʻi’s emerging leader in the field of cultural tourism. Kainoa reminded us that no matter where we come from, nor what experiences we have had, we get to approach one another with aloha. That is to say, connecting with people through listening and talking and doing with no preconceptions. As guests, as locals, as humans, we offer aloha first before expecting it back.
