KW Island Living is the number one real estate franchise providing services for Maui’s most discerning clients.
KW Island Living is a Keller Williams Realty Franchise. We trace our history back to Keller Williams Realty, Inc., which started out in Austin, Texas. Since its inception in 1983, the company has expanded to over 740 offices and 150,000 associates across the globe, including our local Maui offices. Keller Williams cultivates strong values, a world-class education, technology-driven data and a culture that focuses on results through people. This unique business model has allowed us to excel.
In 2016, KW Island Living joined forces with Whalers Realty Inc. in a merger that combined Maui’s most respected real estate brokers. Whalers Realty has a rich history with over 40 years of experience on Maui. Since 1976, the company has been one of Maui’s leading brokerage firms. In 1982, Robert “Bob” Cartwright joined Whalers Realty, Inc., quickly becoming the Broker in Charge. In 1993, he purchased the company with his wife Tess.
On Maui’s luxurious West Side, offices operate under the KW Living brand at Whalers Village and at the Kaanapali Fairway Shops. The offices are led by Lisa Teichner, Team Leader, Steve Baker, Principal Broker and Dean Otto, West Side Broker in Charge and Director of the Luxury Homes International and Portfolio Divisions.
The KW Island Living locations are beneficial in promoting the sale of home sites, luxury homes, condominiums and new developments. The locations in Whalers Village and the Fairway Shops are in peak traffic areas and attract high-caliber clientele. Our sales success on Maui can be attributed to our knowledge of the local market combined with a commitment to business principles founded on the aloha spirit.
For each of our projects, we work together with developers to meet, not only their expectations, but also the buyers’ need for a quality purchase experience. Our team of professional REALTORS® is available to serve your Maui real estate needs, and to make the purchase and sale of Maui property a wonderful experience to remember.
