Joyce Wright Funk recently joined our Kauai office and is pleased to be part of Elite Pacific Properties. She was originally licensed in California in 1989 and worked with Coldwell Banker Bali Hai before joining our team. She brings with her many years of experience selling residential homes and land, working with both buyers and sellers.

Joyce was born in Cleveland, Ohio and moved with her family to Washington D.C., Grosse Pointe, Michigan and then Beverly Hills, CA. She began her working career as a beauty consultant and then sales representative for Prince Matchabelli where she was able to finely hone her skills in both service and negotiation.

Her career in real estate in large part began from an appreciation of wonderful properties and beautiful homes, and an ingrained aptitude for personal interactions with people. She learned early on these type of transactions require a commitment to the due diligence required in understanding each property's unique merits - as well as the inherent variables found in different communities and areas around the island along with Kauai County’s building codes and planning requirements. She thrives in the process and is great at what she does.

Joyce has lived on Kauai for nearly a decade, but her husband and assistant Scott has made it his home for thirty years. His keen knowledge of the island and contacts made over the years working in all phases of construction and property development from carpentry to landscaping, as an owner/builder, residential construction project manager, and now representative/property manager for a high net worth family serve her clients well. On a rural island like Kauai where homes and properties are sometimes located outside of residential neighborhoods - issues such as clearing, access, power and water service, as well as depth of knowledge of local contractor, subcontractors and service providers can become paramount.

Joyce and Scott have recently completed a second home on their 8 acre farm in Kalihiwai Ridge which gives them great enjoyment, whether working the land or enjoying time with friends and family. She is also a mother of two, Joshua and Luke. Joshua was born severely handicapped, passing gracefully at the age of eighteen after bringing much joy and love into their lives. To her great joy, Luke and his wife Michelle gifted Joyce a beautiful granddaughter Mia on Dec 24, 2014.

Early in the morning you can find Joyce practicing yoga, hiking a beautiful Kauai trail, or in the ocean paddling out to the waves! She love the wilderness, nature, art and family life with her husband and love ones.
