Real Estate Career:

In late 2005, we had the opportunity to leave our high-tech careers in Silicon Valley and move to Maui. With my passion for working with people, my background in design and architecture, and my belief that real estate is a great investment, I selected real estate as my next career. I've been a homeowner for more than twenty years and have purchased and occupied three homes. I received my real estate license form the State of Hawaii in January of 2007. I've taken additional courses so that I can provided my clients with the service and care they deserve.

  • Camp 443 - A Keller Williams 5-week intensive course providing hand-on use of systems and real life scenarios for finding clients, servicing buyers and sellers, working with escrow and mortgage lenders, and handling a variety of problems.
  • 1031 Exchanges - A course with experts in 1031 exchanges for investors including reverse exchanges.
  • Certified Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource (2010)
  • Certified Home Stager (2011)

Professional Background:

25 years experience in technology including 15 years in management. My most recent positions were Senior manager at Adobe Systems, Director of Engineering at Successfactors, Director of Engineering at at Dialog, and Senior Manager and Chief Software Engineer at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Space. Why did I leave my career? I got tired of pushing people (and myself) to do what was good for the company instead of what was good for them. After 25 years it was time to do something new.

Married for 20 years to Peter Liu who is a professional social media consultant and photographer. We share our home with 2 feline children. Maui Real Estate Professional, Certified Home Stager, techie, scuba diver, organic gardener, sustainability and green living advocate, entrepreneur.
