My name is Stéphane Michel. I’m a realtor with Savio Realty Ltd in Hawaii. I chose to work with Savio as my broker because it is a true independent Hawaiian company and has been in the industry for close to 40 years. Savio provides a wide range of services from general brokerage, to property management, condo conversion, lease to fee conversion, special projects and even has an investment department. Savio believes in building old school human relationships, maintaining high ethical standards and in leveraging new technologies to provide the best service possible.
Personally I grew up on the French Riviera and Provence (Rough places!) and learned from my mom whose main activities were buying, selling and renting real estate. I spent close to 20 years in California working as a Case Manager for Homeless Services helping individuals become self-sufficient and find housing; working with technology companies specializing in eCommerce and ERP software, and as of late with the Chamber of Commerce of San Luis Obispo in membership and supporting and advocating for work housing projects.
Ultimately, due to the unbelievably expensive real estate market on the West Coast and the rest of the State of Hawaii, my family and I decided to move to the Big Island to take care of our in-laws. Our heart is to educate families on the incredible opportunities still available on the island – Literally one of the last affordable market. Indeed it is often possible to buy a great property for the price of a down payment in Honolulu or L.A.! We believe that financial independence starts with home ownership with the least amount of debt possible, and that mortgages should be a reasonable percentage of a family’s budget so as not to cause any stress on marriages or relationships!
Whether you would like to buy constructible land or a home to live in or rent out, we would love to help you! The Big Island is unique and very diverse in terms of its people, landscapes, challenges and attractions. Most people love it but it is not for everyone. We would be glad to schedule a phone conversation or meeting to understand your needs and explain our services. We can help you find buildable lots starting around $15k! Unpermitted homes for around $100k, permitted homes for less than $250k, brand new homes in the $300’s and ocean view homes starting in the high $400!
Feel free to call me (808-631-8434) or Email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or even follow me on Instagram to get a taste of the Hawaiian life!
