They are often able to remember who they are, who their family and friends are, what they did for a living, and so much more. While listening to the music of their lives, they are often able to participate in day-to-day activities, comfortably attend appointments, and be a part of the lives of their loved ones,” Jen explains. started in 2016 and is now part of the family of organizations under the umbrella of the North Kohala Community Resource Center, a 501(c)3.

Jen has successfully merged over 46 years of varied work and life experience into a real estate career that focuses on the goals and dreams of her clients. Her expertise in the areas of networking, negotiating, marketing, decorating, staging, and relocation are vital tools that help her assist clients in streamlining their process, whether purchasing or selling property.

In 2011, Jen and her husband, Pat, moved to Hawaii from the pristine resort community of Big Bear, California. Their unique experience of living in a 450 not-so-square-foot vintage yurt on the Hamakua Coast led her to write My Year In A Yurt, a unique faith-based book on off-grid, tiny house living. They later purchased a one-of-a-kind, off-grid home a quarter mile—as the wild turkey flies— from the yurt, and continue to enjoy life in the Ohia forest...complete with an ocean view!

Whether you are looking to acquire or sell a home in Waimea, a cottage in Honokaa, a ranch in Laupahoehoe, or another option from the multitude of others available on the Big Island, Jen will assist you by working in tandem with you and the entire brokerage, focusing on your specific needs from your property search to closing of escrow!
