Real Estate here in Hawaii has been a hot button subject and it’s be a long time since we brought in an expert….So we brought in Lorna Gagnon of RE/MAX.
Lorna’s story is an interesting one on how she even got here in the first place…She ended up here literally by accident! She had a motorhome and hit a deer in Texas, so Lorna and her X decided to have it fixed in California and spend a month in Hawaii. She was already on a year long journey to find a “new home” as she was tired of living in NH and spent 40 years running away from the cold when ever possible. She first was licensed at 18 yrs. old in real estate. It is the only career she’s ever known.
She’s done development, new constructions, resale, commercial and residential. She owed a RE/MAX brokerage in NH prior to relocating to Hawaii. Upon moving to Hawaii, Lorna worked for a large brokerage in a management position coaching, mentoring and training agents until 2 1/2 years ago. Since that time Lorna and Kevin Tengan (her fiance) opened RE/MAX Prestige in Koko Marina.
Honestly, the relocation experience has contributed greatly to her level of competence. She understand what it is like to move to Hawaii, what challenges people encountered and the feeling of being overwhelmed. This allows her to help folks from experience when they move here. She has familiarity in all communities, She shows, studies the comps and lifestyles in each community which helps someone relocating because she can talk about all those aspects from traffic to lifestyle.
Being part of the RE/MAX Network we have 100,000 agents worldwide which means we can help them through the sale of their home and purchase here. RE/MAX is in 100 countries worldwide.
