Posted by Rachel Esserman — June 14, 2013

1371244335HAWAII ISLAND, HAWAII - For the second time in four years, Hualalai Realty’s Principal Broker and Director of Residential Sales, Rob Kildow, has been named the No. 1 realtor in the state by Hawaii Business magazine. Hualalai Realty sells real estate exclusively for Hualalai Resort on the North Kona Kohala coast. The announcement was made on May 30.

1371244379Each year, Hawaii Business magazine compiles a list of the “Top 100 Realtors” across the state, based on total sales volume in the home resale market for single-family homes and condominiums.

“I’m honored and humbled to have received this recognition again this year. The results are a testament to the commitment of ownership to maintain Hualalai as the No. 1 resort in the world, the incomparable lifestyle and services offered by the entire Hualalai Ohana and the extraordinary quality and unique design of the residences here at Hualalai Resort.” Kildow said.

He also cited an improving economy and luxury home market throughout the state for not only increased home sales, but escalating real estate prices as well.

“With our economy looking brighter and a rapidly declining inventory of homes and lots here at Hualalai Resort, we are seeing those individuals who have been watching and waiting over the past few years acting now to secure their piece of paradise at Hualalai,” Kildow said.

In the first quarter of 2013, Kildow and his team already achieved more than 90 percent of 2012’s strong sales, in both volume and revenue. With demand high, Kildow says, Hualalai Realty is on track toward another record-breaking year.

The “Top 100 Realtors” is an independent recognition program by Hawaii Business magazine. For more information on the list and the criteria used to compile it, please read the notes on this article on last year’s list. For the full ranked list, as well as separate lists for Top Real Estate Companies, Top Agents for Vacant Land Sales, and Exclusive Contracts, pick up the June 2013 issue of Hawaii Business.
