Kyra and her husband visited the Big Island in the summer of 2012 so Kyra could run the Kona Marathon in her quest to run a marathon in all fifty states. (50th state completed in February 2018.) They immediately fell in love with the island and decided to move here before finishing the drive from the airport to their hotel. Kyra had been investing in rental properties on the mainland since 2008, and the move to Hawaii was the inspiration for her to combine her passion for real estate with her successful business sales experience and her MBA education to become a licensed Realtor®. They moved to Kona in December of 2012, and Kyra was licensed in January of 2013.
During her years on Big Island, in addition to helping her clients buy and sell their homes, Kyra continued to personally invest in real estate. She grew her portfolio by being the winning bidder at several tax and bank foreclosure auctions. The legal issues surrounding these properties inspired Kyra to briefly return to the mainland where she recently obtained a Masters in Legal Studies.
Upon her return to Kona, Kyra joined the LUVA team where she will use her knowledge and experience to create many successful transactions resulting in happy clients.
