Bernadette loves all of Hawai’i, but she is most captivated by the Big Island. She's proud to say that she CHOSE the Big Island as her second home! The energy of the Aloha Spirit, beautiful weather year-round, spectacular geography, amazing opportunities, and friendly people drew her and her husband (Rob) to Kona. Bernadette and Rob love the outdoors and traveling, but they especially love entertaining and swimming at their home in Kona.
A variety of past experiences shaped Bernadette’s unique skill set that she brings to her now 16-year real estate career. She has had previous careers in business administration, criminal justice, and was a licensed all lines insurance agent before her real estate career. She has an associate's degree, a bachelor’s degree, and multiple real estate accreditations.
Being an altruistic “people person” and discovering the positive, upbeat, energetic dynamics in the industry, becoming a Realtor was a no-brainer for her. Bernadette says, “This venue to help others and live well while having fun has, for me, redefined the meaning of work." Bernadette is a Designated Broker and owns her own firm in Spokane, WA and is especially proud to be part of the family here at LUVA.
