Ron Silva RB-18675

Realtor® (B), Broker-In-Charge, Vice President, ABR®, CRB, GREEN, RSPS

Ron Silva aims to leverage his extensive knowledge and quiet strength to establish connections and attain success in the real estate industry.

A fourth generation Portuguese descendant raised on Maui, Ron is deeply aware of the intricacies of the island’s real estate market and works tirelessly on clients’ behalf to negotiate successful transactions. Ron’s rare and intimate knowledge of the island — paired with decades of experience — means clients can rely on his extensive network of contacts, ranging from developers to property surveyors to land-use attorneys. His 23 years as a Realtor and 18 years as Broker-in-Charge are a testament to his passion: redefining the real estate experience for his clients and inspiring the industry as a whole to push boundaries, innovate and differentiate.

“The three aspects of the real estate business I really love are the people, the technology, and the island of Maui,” says Ron. “A significant part of my business comes from word-of-mouth recommendation and client referral, and I attribute that to genuinely caring about what I do and nurturing the long-term relationships I have developed.”

Ron relishes challenges and takes pride in resolving any obstacles that may arise during transactions. Even after a sale is finalized, he continues to advocate for his clients’ interests. Colleagues and clients describe Ron as a problem solver and industry leader, known for his effective communication skills, devotion to clients and focus on attention to detail. “I offer a unique breadth and depth of knowledge, background and experience,” says Ron, “but if there’s something new or unique that I can’t provide an answer to, I won’t pretend or guess. I’ll assure I can find the right resource that can supply the information or offer a practical and acceptable solution.”

One of Ron’s passions is traveling with his wife, Jean. Portugal holds a special place in their hearts – they consider it their second home. Ron’s descendants migrated to Hawaii from Madeira and the Azores, like many of their contemporaries, to work on Hawaii’s sugar plantations. His great-grandfather arrived with all of $4 in his pocket as he started a new life here in Hawaii. With Ron’s own children and grandchildren, there are now six generations of his family with Hawaii roots. Another of his passions is food and cooking – he is a professionally trained chef, and his travels allow him the opportunity to explore new markets, ingredients, and techniques that he can bring back home to his family kitchen.

In true Hawaiian fashion, Ron is acutely aware of his duty to ensure that his choices and work ethic give credit not just to his immediate family (ohana), but also his community, and Maui at large.


We have purchased and sold six houses in 32 years. By far, Ron is the best realtor we have worked with. When we sold our home on Maui, Ron gave us wonderful advice. Ron does what it takes to get the job done, does what he says he is going to do and gets it done on time. He is honest and has a work ethic second to none. Do yourself a favor and hire Ron Silva. He made sure everything was right and even helped us hire people to professionally clean when we realized we were running out of time to do so ourselves.

Ron was extremely knowledgeable throughout the entire process - providing invaluable insights and keeping us on track. Ron and realtor Renona are the best of the best! Ron is a pleasure to work with and we recommend Realtor Broker Ron Silva to our friends and family without hesitation.
Thank you Ron!! We are forever grateful.

We decided to use Ron Silva to sell our home because we noticed how quickly he sold another home in our neighborhood the Greens of Maui Lani. From the get go, we could see that he was experienced and because of that we felt confident that our home was in good hands. Our home sold in a week and we owe that to the knowledge, experience and utmost professionalism of Ron Silva. Mahalo Ron!

Ron and his partner Renona are the best! He was my realtor helping with a first house purchase on Maui. Ron is very knowledgeable about all areas of the island, value of potential properties and regulations to be aware of.
If you need a realtor who will be on your side the entire time, connect you with the best loan officers, inspectors and create an overall realty-dream-team for you, requite Ron! ... and you'll be the next person writing such review :)
Mahalo Ron!!

It was such a wonderful experience working with Ron & Renona. They were so patient, accommodating, and easy to work with. We really loved working with true local Kama’aina realtors who not only care about Maui but about our community as well. They definitely will “go to bat” for you, and have your best interests in mind - would highly recommend both of them for your real estate needs.

Ron Silva and Renona Barrozo are AMAZING! They helped us purchase our new home and helped us in selling our old home. Renona stuck with us the whole way through and always provided us updates along the way. We have always been satisfied with the service she provides. She worked with us when we purchased our first home and has helped us purchase our new home. We always recommend our family and friends to her ❤ Thank you Renona and Ron for helping us the whole way!

Ron Silva and his team are the Best on Maui, in my opinion and personal experience. He is professional and yet as a hard working man who is born and raised on Maui, he knows how to connect with locals. Ron can connect and collaborate with anyone AND everyone. He is articulate and always professional. Ron is punctual, always accountable and reliable and we trust him with every inch of our Soul. He is ʻohana. We will ALWAYS work with Ron and his team. My husband and I bought our brand new nearly 3,000 square feet home on my Native homeland and slopes of Wailuku, Maui. We bought this huge house so we can care for my mother. She has the whole downstairs to herself. We want guests to come and visit us. We are homeowners three times, but this time we found our dream home. As locals and Native Hawaiians born and raised in Hawaiʻi, I believe itʻs our duty and kuleana (responsibility) to purchase land and homes as locals FIRST. Realtors, brokers and developers should always choose the names of people with ancestral ties to Maui and Hawaiʻi first to create their dream homes for themselves and families. We need to focus on our Maui ʻohana first and foremost. I am forever grateful and indebted to work with a man of benevolence, intelligence and true authentic aloha. We love you Ron Silva, the BEST Broker and Realtor on Maui and throughout Hawaiʻi. Ron is modest, attentive, and such a great listener. You want to buy a home, condo, etc? work with Mauiʻs own born and raised King of REALTORS Ron Silva. Sotheby’s NŌ KA ʻOI (Is the Best).
