Originally from Canada, Katie knows a thing or two about snow-packed mountains, blistering winters, and trees that grow higher than average buildings. But that didn’t stop her from chasing the island lifestyle. After spending 12 years at a firm where she became fluent in real estate and client relations, Katie took her skills across the ocean to Maui, Hawai'i. 

"My passion for the industry is unparalleled. I pride myself on ensuring every transaction is seamless for my clients."

Anyone who knows Katie knows she's your go-to for all things real estate (and tips and tricks for visiting Canada).

What led you to where you are today?

I was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, where I graduated from the University of Calgary with a bachelor's degree in Communication. Real estate has always been a passion of mine. I knew from a very young age that I was meant to have a career in real estate. I started my career as an administrator for a top-producing team, allowing me to learn the ins and outs of the industry. Once licensed, I spent most of my 12-year career with a small but mighty top-producing team in both Calgary & Western Canada.

When allowed to move to Maui, my husband and I jumped at the opportunity. I realized almost immediately that real estate remained a passion and decided to proceed with getting licensed in the state of Hawaii. I look forward to growing my career in a new market on the beautiful island of Maui.

What's your favorite part about living in Maui and why?

I absolutely love the weather. I am happy to leave the snow and freezing' Calgary temperatures are behind me! 

What's your favorite part about being a realtor?

The connections and friendships I can make with clients are, without a doubt, what I love most about being a realtor.  

Why did you choose Island Sotheby's International Realty? 

I was initially drawn to Island Sotheby's International Realty as I admire its international recognition and attention to brand exposure. Upon meeting the brokers, I immediately knew it was the right fit for me. The boutique brokerage feel and the Island Sotheby's International Realty ohana feel right!

Where is one place on the island we can find you on the weekend or in your spare time?

At a quaint little cove in South Kihei, with my husband and two dogs. We can't get enough of living right by the ocean, and the South Maui sunsets just can't be beaten.

What local spot is a "must-visit," and why?

Maui Wine in upper Kula is one of our favorite hidden gems. Go for the stunning views & drive, and stay for their famous pineapple wine. 

What is your favorite thing about your office's city?

I love how vibrant and active Kihei is. It is action-packed from sunrise to sunset. I enjoy seeing people walking, running, and surfing. Living and working right along the beach is a dream.

What should clients should know about you?

My passion for the industry is unparalleled. I pride myself on ensuring every transaction is seamless for my clients. In addition, my first-hand experience immigrating from Canada will undoubtedly be an asset to any future Canadian clients I have the pleasure of working with.
