Drawn to the Big Island for its world-class deep sea fishing, Kit moved to Hawaii in 2008 from the west side of Colorado. Before settling in Kona, he first lived in East Hawaii (both Hilo and Puna) and then Waikoloa in North Hawaii. His time in these different geographic areas has given him a deep appreciation for the island’s vastly different climate zones and a deeper understanding of the culture and history of these Big Island communities.
Kit has a fantastic entrepreneurial spirit that serves him well in business. He has been in the service industry locally (including having owned and operated one of Kona’s most popular bars), which has been a great source of networking. In his free time he loves exploring the island, especially the ocean surrounding it.
Anyone who has worked alongside Kit can attest to his hard work and solid ethics. He always makes sure the job he’s set out to do is accomplished and that his clients are well satisfied. Whether you’re ready to make Hawaii your home for the first time, are relocating to a new neighborhood, or have property to sell, you can start your new venture knowing Kit is ready to help you get where you would like to be.

"Our experience with Kit was exceptional. His market knowledge and attention to detail is impressive. He maintains a high level of communication throughout the listing and sales process. I would work with Kit again and recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home."

"Kit had been working with my husband and I for a couple years, answering our myriad of real estate questions as first time home buyers. When we finally were ready to make an offer he was actually on vacation, but still managed to take good care of us remotely until he returned, guiding through the buying process and giving us sound advise that helped us successfully purchase our new home! From our first phone conversation to his thoughtful house warming gift the day we closed, it was a pleasure working with him and I would recommend his service to anyone looking for a well qualified realtor."

"Kit was amazing to work with. We had a very difficult situation with a house that needed repairs and a renter that did not want to move. Kit provided us with the guidance we needed and was very responsive and proactive in our communications. He has a lot of local knowledge that helped considerably with the sale and how to work with the potential buyers. There were four or five offers within the first day or two and, with Kit's help, we were able to find the best possible solution."

"Kit helped us purchase our home in Waikoloa. He was always available for answering questions and trouble shooting. Because we lived off island Kit was a gem of a resource for us. We have already recommended him to family and friends in the market."

"Kit was amazing to work with. His knowledge and kindness was helpful in our move to Hawaii from the mainland. We have adopted him into our family and I would recommend him without hesitation!!"

"Kit was incredibly professional and helpful! As you probably know it's hard to find a good realtor in Kona. Kit will not disappoint. He was knowledgeable and great at explaining things to me. This was my first house and I didn't have the biggest budget but Kit was able to find several properties. We lost a few, but Kits positive attitude kept me positive and in the end he was able to find me a house that fit all my needs and at a great price. Kit made me feel comfortable and confident in all the decisions I had to make."

"Kit went above and beyond to sell our house in South Kona. This is not the hottest market and Kit helped us to sell within a couple of months. We had some difficulty with tenant move out and Kit even helped us with that. He made sure the place was clean and ready for the final inspection enabling us to secure the sale. I highly recommend working with Kit for either selling or buying property."

"Kit is an excellent realtor. I listed with him and in three days, my property was in contract and sold 30 days later. Kit's insight and pulse on the Kona market provided me with a quick sale at the price I wanted. Truly phenomenal knowledge, diligent in effort and has an excellent pulse of the market. Don't believe this recommendation, then go ahead and check the public records (see the listing date, on contract date and closing date).
‐ Allen Ho (September 26, 2017)
"Kit was the most refreshing part about buying a house. As stressful as it can get, Kit broke things down for us to where we could understand the processes and paperwork. Kit was honest with us, he provided great recommendations and overall genuinely cares about what was right for us. I would highly recommend Kit to anyone who wants to buy a house! I will go back to him in the future!"

"My wife and I recently closed escrow on a condominium in Waikoloa Beach Villas. With the professional approach, honesty, and perseverance of Kit, this transaction was conducted efficiently and concluded on schedule without issue.
It was through our close and honest communication with Kit, that we decided to purchase property in Hawaii. Our original intension was to lease, but after meeting with Kit at an Open House, we were confident Kit was an Agent we would succeed with in acquiring this property.
During the offer negotiations process, Kit was objective and a realist about what terms and conditions might be accepted, and they were. Through escrow, Kit was in contact daily providing status and what was coming due, and completed. Throughout the escrow process, nothing was left to surprise and I felt confident the entire process was being managed and communicated effectively.
In addition, Kit’s knowledge of the local environment, culture, and activities have been invaluable in our adjusting to living on the island. I have always felt comfortable talking with Kit, I trust him and would recommend him to everyone I know about living in Hawaii and the real estate industry of the Big Island.
Finding the right location is just as important as finding the right home, and no one knows the local area better than a local agent. Allow me to help you find the perfect community for you, your family, and your lifestyle.
The Big Island is one of the most spectacular places on earth and our active volcano is a must see when conditions are safe. For now; however, most sections of the Park are closed and only local... Read More
