A native of Northern California, luxury real estate sales executive Tom Loratta has lived on the Kona-Kohala side of Hawaii Island for 42 years. He not only witnessed the start of what was to become the island’s internationally acclaimed “Gold Coast”, but participated in creating the success of many of its most prestigious residential resort communities over the years.
Most recently, Tom was a lead sales executive with Hualalai Realty (at the internationally acclaimed Hualalai Resort) for 17 years. “We sold more than just spectacular brick and mortar award-winning custom homes and villas. We sold a lifestyle to individuals looking for exclusivity, a five diamond experience and a true sense of community."
During that time, Tom built strong business and personal relationships with clients that will last a lifetime – one of the things he treasures most about his tenure there. He also cites the opportunity to be part of the vision, growth and success of Hualalai Resort as one of his most rewarding career accomplishments.
His expertise and keen knowledge of the Kona-Kohala Coast luxury real estate market, combined with a passion for sharing it with others, led to his appreciative and loyal clients and earned him accolades as one of the top 20 performing agents in the Hawaiian Islands for many years.
Prior to joining Hualalai Realty in 1999, Tom was involved with high end real estate developments including, Mauna Kea Beach Resort, The Islands at Mauna Lani Resort and Kohala Ranch. His strong interest in architecture and design provide added dimension to the professional, comprehensive service he offers clients.
Tom lives upcountry in Holualoa Town on three acres with his wife Amy. In their free time, they farm lush island fruits and vegetables. Tom’s two daughters, Lux and Alyssa, love the islands as much as he does, while enjoying mainland pursuits of art and design.
