Marie Fellenstein Hale
Elite Pacific Agent
R(S), Working with Karen Ferrara,
Real Estate Agent
For the past 20 years, I’ve raised my children in the Waimea area. I enjoy being connected with my community, introducing people who need to meet each other, while finding ways for individuals and businesses to support each other. I’ve been a writer and photographer for local publications, as well as working and volunteering for non-profits in the community.
I lived abroad for several years, so I understand what it’s like to be a stranger in a new place. This makes me valuable in helping people who are relocating to Hawaii. When a newcomer arrives in town, friends want them to meet me because I can connect them with resources and what’s happening on the island. If I don’t know how to get something done, I’ll find the person who does.
For the last two years, I’ve assisted Karen Ferrara, a Big Island Realtor with over 100 million in sales. I gained essential experience in real estate photography, staging, event planning and on-the-ground work. From putting up a sign in lava rock to pouring champagne at an open house, I’ll do what’s needed. I enjoy helping clients, whether finding someone their dream home or showcasing a home in the best light for a quick sale. Now that I have my real estate license, I’m excited to be part of a top-producing team: Ferrara & Co.
I graduated from the University of Colorado with a BA in German and also speak Italian, and have picked up a few words in other languages during my international travels. In my free time, I love to dance, any style, but especially partner dancing.
