After having been involved in the Kohanaiki project from its inception nearly 10 years ago, Joni has recently opened her own real estate practice as Principal Broker for Metzler Realty. For more than 30 years Joni has specialized in resort project sales along the Kona-Kohala Coast, representing the most successful development projects while creating a strong and loyal client following along the way.
Prior to joining Kohanaiki, Joni was a top producer at MacArthur and Company Sotheby’s International Realty and the top agent at Hualalai Resort from its inception in 1995. Joni is a longstanding member of the National Association of Realtors, the Hawaii Association of Realtors and the West Hawaii Association of Realtors.
Devoting her time and energy to a variety of personal, civic and philanthropic causes and supporting the local community through various means rounds out Joni’s very active life. She loves the outdoors and is an avid cyclist, both road and mountain biking, including several top medals in triathlon and Xterra events statewide. A key part of their modest family cattle ranch on the slopes of the Kohala Mountains, she enjoys horseback riding and handling the herd of black angus livestock, including breeding, birthing, roundups, branding and all that comes with the ever-changing challenge of raising beef cattle for market. Rounding out Joni’s outdoor pursuits are fresh and salt water fishing, snow and water skiing, golf and the always evolving adventures with her husband John and their close-knit family.
