Once upon a time, I read a book, “The Moon and Sixpence” by W. Somerset Maugham that changed everything in my life. The book is about an artist who moved from Europe to a tropical island in the Pacific. The beauty of the island is described so vividly that you can almost see the bright colors of tropical flowers and feel the attraction of a stress-free lifestyle.
In 2012, I married Victor and immigrated from St.Petersburg to the USA. My husband is an inventor, businessman, and former US Navy officer. He had been dreaming about Hawaii for a long time. Victor told me about the relaxing lifestyle and wonderful places to visit. So the picture from the book was complete.
In 2014, we came to the Big Island from Southern California. We are both cautious investors looking for exceptional long term value. We found a fixer-upper with gorgeous ocean views. We created our own affordable paradise—easy to accomplish on the Big Island—and you can do the same thing. Why wait?
We do a lot of things together like renovating and decorating the house, gardening, cooking and baking. We have planted fruit trees, different vegetables and greens. We love hiking to a secluded beach to swim and snorkel or just take things easy in our hammocks strung between palm trees. We play tennis and pickleball weekly.
My “love language” is helping people. My previous professions include teaching, negotiation and I am a certified translator (English, German, Russian). I had my own business in St.Petersburg where I helped children with learning disabilities. I also have a Ph.D. and worked as a senior research scientist. I’ve had a Hawaii real estate license since 2016 and understand that research is vitally important when looking for value and making real estate decisions. I understand contracts very well and can help decipher contracts and agreements or, when necessary, assist in translating them.
To help share my love for the Island of Hawaii and to market my clients’ listings, I created my own website and a channel on YouTube where I upload detailed videos featuring my listings and information about districts and subdivisions on the Big Island. I specialize in finding appropriate properties for those who are looking for a second home. Whether it’s a rental condo to use for a week each year or for your future retirement home, it all fits into my expertise. If you want to move and need to sell your property, I will create a video featuring your listing and promote it worldwide.
I look forward to putting my professional experience to work to help you meet your real estate goals. My clients are my first priority.
