Steven J. Ellison, R(S) has been the recipient of the Keauhou office Top Producer award several times during his twenty-year real estate career. Great qualities he offers his buyers and sellers are consistency, keeping his agreements and going above and beyond what is expected.
His interest in each person he works with is sincere and this is recognized by the continuing referrals he receives from past clients. He understands that the close of a sale, whether with a buyer or seller, is not the end of the relationship.
Steve makes it a priority to stay on top of local market conditions, understanding how essential timely information is to his clients. This makes him a valuable resource when considering whether to sell or purchase a property.
Family is very important to Steve and his wife, Lauralynn. Their two sons, Evan (8) and Sam (2), keep life busy and interesting. Steve has learned the art of balancing a very busy professional life with family and fun. Whether he is teaching Evan to surf, camping with friends or entertaining at home, Steve always puts those around him first.
Just four years ago, Chiaki Yamada, R(S) began her Big Island real estate career. As with everything she does, Chiaki immersed herself in learning what the business is all about. Her background in corporate sales, her dedication to customer service and her availability to her clients soon brought her to a very busy market.
Creating her website peacefulhawaii.com, she began blogging in Japanese and found that a large contingency of Japanese speakers are very interested in purchasing property in Hawaii.
Chiaki strongly believes in the spirit and power of hospitality when serving clients. These are not just words but the action that she puts into place with every person she come in contact with. “True happiness comes from making others happy,” she says.
Her trilingual communication skills (English, Japanese and Spanish) allow her to serve a variety of buyers and sellers.
When she does find time to relax, her passion is travel, and, recently, surfing.
