A noteworthy example of Tomo’s presence in the Kohala Coast marketplace is her representation for the entire property portfolio of MaunaKeaLiving.com.
The first offering from MaunaKeaLiving.com is a collection of homesites at the beloved Mauna Kea Resort. In the first phase are 11 homesites of up to one acre. Each of the sites offers exceptional 360° views from the snow-capped Mauna Kea to the Pacific Ocean. These estates are among the highest-elevation homesites at the Mauna Kea Resort and offer panoramic views that run the length of the Kohala Coast. Two larger parcels on the Hapuna Golf Course are 17- and 10-acre sites for single-family residences and condominiums — at $9.5M to $16.5M, respectively.
Coming soon to the market is a new collection of oceanfront condominiums at the resort. These are among the most special in all Hawaii, directly on Hapuna Beach, recognized as one of the two best in all of the islands. These are offered in 1, 2, 3 and four bedrooms. First level residences include spacious lanais and plunge pools.
