Tony was born into the business, beginning his successful career with his family’s in Minneapolis, MN, in 1986. His path to Hawaii Island took him to Newport Beach, CA, where he spent several years specializing in luxury residential real estate sales in beach cities spanning the Orange County coastline. In 2005, he made the leap across the Pacific, joining Centex Destination Properties from 2005 to 2007 where he clinched the status of “Top Sales Person”.
Already a veteran in the luxury market, Tony accepted a position with Hualalai Realty, at Hualalai Resort, an internationally acclaimed luxury residential resort on Hawaii Island’s “Gold Coast” in 2007. With nearly 10 years with the group, Tony secured spots as a Top 100 agent in the State of Hawaii several times.
About his passion for the business, he says, “I love making the deal, delivering something really special to my clients. Owning property in Hawaii is like owning a piece of paradise for you and your family to enjoy. Very few have this unique opportunity.”
Tony holds a BA in finance from the College of St. Thomas in Minnesota, lending a solid foundation in high stakes transactions. Clearly not one-dimensional, this inspirational entrepreneur also spent some time on the marketing side of the deal representing touring musicians, entertainers, sporting events and professional sports teams nationwide. Tony loves island life with his wife Ericka and daughters Skylar and Mya.
