We treat our clients as friends, and every property and transaction as if our own.
Every success story is a tale of people who dream big and are inspired to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary.
This is exactly what happened when the Elite Pacific Properties story began in 2005, when Paul Mayer, a successful entrepreneur who had recently sold his company, and Stephen Cipres, a financial analyst, were looking for their next venture. Their real estate experiences inspired them to establish a brokerage on Oahu that would forever change the face of real estate in Hawaii for both agents and clients.
As an independent, local company that offers world-class service, Elite Pacific Properties started with a simple philosophy: treating every client as a friend, and every transaction as if it was our own. Honoring this philosophy, we established a culture of service and efficiency fueled by high-tech, smart investments in agents, and the tools they need to be successful at helping clients achieve their real estate goals.
We understood from the start that luxury is not a price point, but an experience. And to deliver that experience, we put together an engaged team of dedicated, full-time career agents who can focus on what they do best: market knowledge and sales, while supported by a professional staff and a comprehensive suite of innovative, industry-leading technology and tools.
Over the past 15+ years, focused on quality control and operational effectiveness, choosing only the most successful, experienced agents and dedicating every resource to support their success, Elite Pacific Properties has grown into the premier, independent luxury brokerage, vacation rental and property management firm serving the beautiful Hawaiian islands.
Today, with over 250 talented agents and property managers, 12 offices, an extensive, specialized staff, and powered by a suite of innovative support tools, our company's agent-centric approach and focus on creating a luxury experience for all its clients has resulted in outstanding accolades and rapid growth throughout the state.
Elite Pacific is a member of Who's Who in Luxury Real Estate, an exclusive invitation-only organization for top luxury brokerage in the world, and had the most Top 100 agents in Hawaii last year. Our company was also named to the prestigious National Inc. 5000 for the last 7 years, and recognized among the 50 fastest growing businesses in the state for the last 4 years by Pacific Business News. In 2019, Elite Pacific's brokerage sales rose to over $1.41 billion. 2018 saw the start of another exciting chapter in our success story when Anton Steenman, formerly a VP at Intel, joined Elite Pacific to serve as President and CEO.
Anton's unique experience and vision have led to significant growth in all divisions, an enhanced portfolio of concierge services, leading-edge tools, agent development and coaching, and new marketing opportunities. Under his leadership, our company continues to thrive thanks to his professional leadership team, our dedicated, specialized staff and consistently expanding roster of distinctive real estate professionals.
At Elite Pacific Properties, we know that every property is a story. Our stories are about exceptional properties and exceptional people. As we did when all this began over 15 years ago, we remain dedicated to continuously raising the bar in real estate and helping create genuine and unforgettable life moments - for our employees, guests and clients.
