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



"This is our third time buying a home, and Shannon is by far the BEST realtor we've ever worked with!! She really knows the market, common issues with homes in Hawaii, and how to drive a bargain. She has a great team and network, and her level of professionalism, communication and follow-through made us feel comfortable enough to buy our home and close on it before we even arrived on island.  We recommend her to everyone looking to buy on the windward side, and our friends that have worked with her are just as satisfied with their home and experience as we are." Rob



"Our experience working with Shannon was  incredible and I don’t think we would have bought a house if it weren’t for her, honestly!  Part of the reason we wanted to take advantage of using her is because she knows so much about real estate and there was so much we wanted to learn from her.  She was a big part of why we decided to buy." Kathleen


"These women have so much experience to draw from and I was so grateful for their wisdom and confidence through this process.”
