When this site was originally created over a dozen years ago, it featured active search capabilities. At the time, our content garnered us the coveted “authority” status at Google. However, over time the internet has changed and today multi-agent companies have been able to buy their rankings by outspending boutique firms like our own. 

Based on this new reality we have eliminated the search feature as you can readily search numerous different sites all of which derive their information from the same source, the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) provided by Hawaii Information Services Inc. Their easy-to-navigate site www.alohaliving.com will provide you with an overview of the market.

Instead of providing a search function that is limited to properties listed on the MLS, I will prepare for you in-depth market analysis based on my years of experience and your specific needs, which may extend to properties that are not openly listed for sale. 

My strong suit is research and analysis and I focus on resort properties, large estates, commercial opportunities, and oceanfront properties predominately in North and South Kohala.
I am a 45+ year resident of the Big Island and since 1987 I have worked with high net worth individuals and institutions constantly looking for opportunities to give my clients a competitive advantage. I have constantly ranked in the top 10 brokers on the Big Island and was the #1 Residential Broker on the Big Island in 2007 representing the seller on the most expensive home ever sold in the history of the state. Since 1996, when I started my own firm, I have sold in excess of $300,000,000 of luxury Hawaii real estate.

I specialize in luxury Hawaii real estate with an emphasis on Kohala Coast real estate. Within this site you will find studies on all of the Kohala Coast Resorts including KukioHualalai ResortMauna KeaMauna Lani, and Waikoloa Beach Resorts as well as Oceanfront homes and sites in Puako and on the Kohala Coast.  

If you go to Meet Ric Rocker, you will see numerous testimonials from my clients, several of whom are CEOs of Fortune 500 or Wall Street companies. Hopefully this will encourage you to contact me directly to see what I can do for YOU at either my cell 808-895-3469 or by email richard@richardrocker.com .

As with many things in life, identifying the “perfect” property is more a process than an event. By that I mean the search begins in broad categories and is eventually focused by you explaining to me your desires, goals, dreams, financial parameters, likes and dislikes, etc. 
The more information you can provide me, the better equipped I will be to serve your real estate needs.

To me the obvious first place to start is “where” you would like to be?
Have you been to the Big Island?  
What areas do you prefer?

Next would be “what”
Are you looking for land to build or hold?
A single family residence or condo?
Resort property, within a certain community or rural?
Investment property for income?

Also very important is the “why” -  
What are you trying to achieve?
What are your goals and dreams?  
Are you planning on retiring? 
Moving here permanently? 
Will this be for investment or pleasure?

Then we proceed to “how” or I should say how much?  
What are your financial parameters?  
Will you be purchasing with cash or financing the proposed acquisition?
How much do you have to contribute to the investment as a down payment?
What monthly expense are you comfortable with?

Perhaps most importantly is “when” -  
When do you plan on coming to the Big Island? 
When were you last here? 
As this market is so dynamic, things that I show you today may be gone tomorrow. 

Obviously we can cover a lot of ground via email, but at the end of the day, you will more than likely want to come and see with your own eyes and get your own personal “feel” for the properties in question.

Once you provide me with answers to these basic questions, I can focus my research to your specific needs and provide you with a series of properties to consider that match your criteria.

Please call me directly on my cell 808-895-3469. However, if you prefer doing this via email, then please send me an email answering the above questions to the best of your ability at the moment.  

Don’t worry if you are not totally clear at this stage, as I propose properties and concepts to you, your feedback will focus me further and in the end we will be able to create a small group of properties for your consideration once I start to understand your personal circumstances.

I look forward to hearing from you and beginning this process with you.

Aloha and a hui hou,

Ric Rocker
