Zita’s Unique Background Can Benefit You

Born in Switzerland, Zita was raised in a family that owned a Gruyere cheese–making business that was over a century old. She went on to earn degrees in grocery store management, nutrition education, gourmet cooking, meal presentation, and food service. During her subsequent long career with Lufthansa German Airlines, she was the first female hired to be the airline's Catering Manager. During her last 3 years with Lufthansa, Zita’s “office” was named the “Best Catering Kitchen of the Year in all of the USA.” Still a gourmet chef, Zita also spends time on the water paddling outrigger canoes and sailing. She has truly “been there, done that” and her broad multicultural experience is an asset to her buyer and seller clients.

Zita left the food industry to earn her real estate license in Orange County, California in 1995 and her Hawaiian Real Estate license in 2002. Living in Hawaii for over a decade has perfected her abilities to put herself in your shoes. As your agent, she is efficient, persistent, and patient and enjoys guiding you through every step of the purchasing and selling processes. The trust she has earned during the transactions that she has facilitated proves her collaborative abilities, negotiation skills, and her commitment to creating a win-win solution for all.

“I can’t imagine going through this process without anyone else but Zita. We are so glad she was our agent. My husband and I purchased a home in Kona and used Zita as our real estate agent. We are relocating from Wyoming, so not an easy feat. She was amazing in the whole process for us! Having only built one home for ourselves and living in it for 20 years, we had never purchased a home. There are many steps to go through and the process (especially this year) was daunting. Zita was fantastic with her communication with us through every step. Her due diligence really showed throughout. Even after we closed she has taken the time to reach out, and offer help in any way that she can to ensure we get relocated.” Carl and Angel Olson

I would absolutely recommend Zita to anyone looking for a professional realtor who understands the market and goes above and beyond what is required. I had a previous realtor recommend me to Zita, as a first time home buyer I was new to the home buying process and wanted to get the best information/representation I could possibly have. Zita is a professional in all aspects, prompt, knowledgeable and most of all helped me find a property that suited my personal needs. She explained everything in detail and answered all my questions in a timely manner and never pressured me to make an offer on a place. She made my first home buying experience extremely easy and drama free and held other agents and entities accountable. I would absolutely recommend Zita to anyone looking for a professional realtor who understands the market and goes above and beyond what is required. NICHOLAS ANASTASIA (First Time Home Buyer)

You can expect Zita to be on time, stick to a task, and get it done! Zita has been an asset to me. Her “can-do- attitude” is refreshing. She has a talent for listening, quickly assessing needs, and coming up with reasonable action plans with patience and persistence. Zita’s work ethic is refreshing. She models quality and concerns. Her ability to think ahead, recall information, and creatively troubleshoot issues get’s good things accomplished. She always made me feel like we were her top priority. I have enjoyed working with Zita, and I enthusiastically recommend Zita. Jocqueline Kowrach, Personal Assistant to Seller

It was a job well done! Your expertise was evident at each step, from advising us on staging our property to structuring and scheduling professional services for photography and inspection. We appreciate your respectful approach of making decision in a collaborative manor and your keen ability to really listen to your clients needs and to follow thru on all the many details involved in a timely manner. Thanking you for providing such a positive experience in this transaction. Anonymous Sellers

You can put 100% of your trust in her, she gets the job done…and always with a great attitude and smile on her face! My wife and I were “so lucky” to have discovered our “dream home” in Kaulana At Keauhou…and equally lucky to have had the pleasure of working with Zita! I enjoyed many years in mortgage banking, and worked closely with the real estate community for 20 years. Zita is “by far” one of the most effective, professional, and knowledgeable, Real Estate agent I have had the pleasure working with. Jerry and Linda Butzbach (Buyers)

Easiest and most rewarding home purchase we’ve made in our forty years of buying property. We worked with Zita for almost 2 years in our house quest. She took the time to determine what we are looking for in a home, and was able to show us many good homes in the Keauhou/Kona area. Once we found the right home Zita was great to have working on our behalf, and she was always on top of everything which reduced our stress. Zita’s professionalism, enthusiasm, calm demeanor and exceptional attention to details makes her someone I would certainly highly recommend to other friends. Suzanne & Rich Jarvinen (Buyers)
