As a transplant from the Canadian Rockies, I have found the warm ocean waters, majestic mountains, volcanoes and rain forests of the Big Island of Hawaii an incredible environment in which to work, play, thrive and enjoy life. I have owned property in Kona since 1989 and began my real estate career in 1990. Real estate is my full time profession and Clark Realty has been my office of choice since May 1993. The majority of my business is residential, condominium, land and project sales.

In 1993, I was recipient of the Realtor Associate of the Year award and I earned my Real Estate Broker's License in 1994 followed by the Advanced Buyers Representative (ABR) designation in 2005 and Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) in 2006. Currently I am working on the designation for Certified Commercial Investment Management and have completed the Ninja Sales Training Program and retreat. During 2009, I also served as Broker-in-Charge of the Kona office of Clark Realty.

It is a pleasure to be a member of this West Hawaii community and enjoy its many activities, entertainment opportunities, cultural environment and, of course, the weather (there are 13 climate zones world-wide and we are blessed to have 11 of them on the Island of Hawaii). As a parent, Kona was a wonderful place to raise my daughter, who is currently in college.

I invite you to come explore this wonderful paradise and, if you are preparing to buy or sell property on the Big Island, please call me to discuss your real estate needs.



Derinda is everything you could possibly want in a real estate agent for the Big Island. Honest, hard working and always had our best interest in mind. If she did not have an expertise we needed, she found someone who did. We wanted a specific location and made a full price offer on the property. We were totally surprised when the seller decided NOT to sell. Derinda knew our desires and spoke to other property owners in the area who were thinking of selling but had not listed the property. Voila! She found a property that was better suited to our needs! Derinda is well connected and got our banker (who incidentally got us such a fantastic rate that we ended up refinancing our mainland home too saving us money and made our Hawaii purchase so much more affordable. Escrow went smoothly and our Hawaii dream home was a reality. If you're looking for a Big Island real estate agent that you can trust, Derinda Thatcher is your agent. Honest, hard working, and tenacious to make your deal happen. Yes we are very happy customers and we promise that you will not be disappointed in choosing Derinda to represent you!

Derinda has helped us purchase 2 homes and sell 1 here on the Big Island. She is very experienced and professional. I would not hesitate to turn to her in the future. She will research every facet to advise you in your purchase or sale, and will work with you all the way through the process, always just a phone call, text or email away. She will hold your hand and make sure every question is answered, she will market your place like it is the only listing she has, and she will be tireless in getting the job done. We couldn't be happier with an agent. Frankie & Michael Carey

Our realtor, Derinda Thatcher is bright, knowledgeable and very responsive. She helped sell our house in Holualoa and later locate and purchase our current home in Kona. Derinda is very experienced on the west side of the Big Island and particularly in the Kona area. I don't think we have ever caught her without an answer to any of our questions, or without a smile on her face. We would recommend, in fact encourage anyone looking for a responsible and honest real estate agent to call Derinda. Mark and Nannette Wormley

Derinda was very helpful in ultimately helping me buying two condos on the Big Island. I say ultimately because I actually backed out of buying an initial property (long story). She was very understanding, supportive and professional. Once I was on the mainland and circumstances changed, I contacted Derinda regarding another property I was interested in purchasing directly from the seller. She gave me good advice regarding dealing with the seller, however; it was Derinda that found a similar condo at a better price, thus saving me considerable money. I purchased a second condo in the same complex a few months later and she once again did a great job of handling the transaction. I highly recommend Derinda Thatcher. She is an outstanding Real Estate Professional! Frances Vasquez

Derinda is an excellent communicator and planner and executor. She is very knowledgeable about not only the local market but markets elsewhere. We enjoyed working with Derinda as the listing agent for our home. She was always on time for scheduled appointments and staged our home beautifully. Derinda always went the "extra mile" to facilitate the sale of our home in Kona. We highly recommend Derinda to be your Real Estate Agent. Our communication via email and texting was very timely and certainly mitigated any anxious moments in the sale of our home. Thank you for a job well done Derinda. By Calvin & Penny Lum

We have purchased a condo and bought and sold 2 lots in Kona with Derinda's help. She was patient, insightful, and organized. We have continued to use her unparelled expertise because she is a joy to work with. No question, one of the best. Kim & Dan Hoth

It was truly a pleasure working with Derinda in the purchase of our first property on the Big Island. She has a ton of experience that she brings with her into every phase of the home buying process, including local area knowledge, evaluating homes, reviewing comps, negotiating and escrow. We Highly Recommend Derinda Thatcher as your next Big Island Realtor, you won't be disappointed! Nick & Janice Huntz
