"Island Living Homes strives to be unique and provide a level of service that others do not. It's rare to find the breath of experience we have."

Founding Broker

Helping buyers find the homes they love and sellers say hello to their next opportunity is what Shannon W. King does best. Since becoming licensed in 2000, she has assisted more than a 1000 families with their real estate needs in multiple states. Island Living Homes is the third boutique real estate firm she's started.


As a socialpreneur, King co-founded Schoolhouse Realty, a community based company in CA that gives 10% of its proceeds to schools. They have given over $160,000 to schools! King continues the tradition of donating to schools in Hawaii. Prior to that, she owned Tribella Realty in Texas. King still holds her Texas Brokers license.


King is known as the “Real Estate Road Warrior”, because her Naval Officer husband’s job requires they relocate often. Their frequent relocation and purchasing of properties when they move, helps her uniquely understand the transaction from a buyers and sellers perspective. They have lived in TX, CA, DC, Italy and HI and own investment properties in most of these places.


When she’s not busy negotiating a great deal for her clients, you can find her speaking internationally for companies and associations about her first-hand experience of moving into new markets, creating a unique brand, building a client base from scratch and utilizing mobile technology to create a streamlined process.
