Periodically we’ll feature one of our real estate professionals here to let our readers know about some great Realtors, Mortgage Brokers, and Other Real Estate Professionals.
Martie was born and raised on Kauai, and her grandfather founded Sleeping Giant Realty back in 1974. He never imagined that someday his little company would become part of Sotheby’s International Realty!
After receiving her degree from WSU, Martie chose to stay on Kauai to raise her daughter within the nurturing island-style environment. Real estate seemed like a logical choice for her because of the flexible hours (as a single mom) and the fact that someday she might be able to tie it in with her dad’s construction company, buying, building, and selling investment properties.
When she started interviewing real estate companies to see where she wanted to work, Sleeping Giant was only looking for ‘experienced’ agents. Although her grandfather sold the company years before, they took a chance on her, and were pleased when she sold over $4,000,000 in property in her first 6 months!
