Dodie MacArthur has been in the forefront of Big Island Real estate for over 35 years. She has seen many trends in the marketplace, and at their Annual Awards event Tuesday, February 21st, she honored top real estate agents from her company, MacArthur Sotheby’s International Realty. There is much to celebrate, as the past year has seen significant increases in overall sales for the brand, leading to more than $1.1 Billion in sales across the state in 2016.

CEO, Dodie MacArthur – who founded the original MacArthur and Company in 1989 before partnering with Sotheby’s in 1991 – says that “2016 was the best year yet for MacArthur Sotheby’s International Realty in Hawaii.” With over a billion in sales across the state, $205 million on the Big Island, the results are a reflection of the vibrant Hawaiian luxury real estate market and the staying power of the MacArthur Sotheby’s International Realty brand.

The MacArthur Sotheby’s International Realty Annual Awards event at the Mauna Kea Beach Resort celebrated the company’s top producing agents as well as the rich heritage and love of the island reflected in the synergy of the company and its agents.

Her company-wide top producer for 2016, Rebecca Keliihoomalu, R(B), sold over $33 million worth of real estate.

Rebecca attributes much of her real estate success to her prior experience as an entrepreneur. Ultimately, it’s her focus on building client relationships, listening attentively and doing her absolute best on every transaction leading to her high rate of client satisfaction.

Rebecca’s most significant sale in 2016 consisted of more than 700 acres of former Parker Ranch land valued at over $13 million. This beautiful acreage rests above the Waipio Valley, the ‘Valley of Kings’, one of the most sacred sites in Hawaiian heritage. It is also home to a Hawaiian cowboy tradition that stretches back to the early1830s.

Dodie MacArthur says, “Rebecca’s passion is the Big Island and its unique culture, sharing this with others near and far has contributed to their lives and definitely contributed to her success.”

Other top producers for MacArthur Sotheby’s International Realty recognized in 2016 are Kathy J. Christiansen, R(B), Adam F. Atwood, R(S), Cindy Griffey, R(S) and Molly Harris, R(S).
