It was a great week for Elite Pacific Properties’ agents Romy Jacobson and Wailana Herbst. Romy Jacobson was named Salesperson of the Year by West Hawaii Board of Realtors on Friday, December 1, 2017. Wailana Herbst was named Realtor of the Year by East Hawaii Board of Realtors on Saturday, December 2, 2017. These awards reflect Elite Pacific Properties’ strong commitment to the Big Island real estate market
Romy Jacobson was born and raised in California, graduating from UCLA. Relocating to Hawaii in 1993, she began her real estate career as a landlord and investor. Romy and her husband Erik serve clients from Kamuela to Kona, specializing in in the Kohala Coast resorts. As a licensed realestate salesperson, she is an active member of the West Hawaii Association of REALTORS® and is a graduate of the Hawaii Association of Realtors Leadership Academy. The Salesperson of the Year award by West Hawaii Board of Realtors is a reflection of Jacobson’s outstanding track record and dedication to the West Hawaii community
Wailana Herbst is third generation Big Island born Realtor. Growing up in the family real estate business, Wailana has gained valuable experience in a multitude of transactions. Attending University of Hawaii at Hilo, she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and then immediately activated her license and became a full-time agent. Throughout her career, Wailana has been actively involved in her local and state REALTOR® associations and graduated from the Hawaii Association of Realtors Leadership Academy in 2010. In 2014, she moved to North Kohala, expanding her service area to include the entire east coast of the Big Island and shortly thereafter became a resident of the North Kohala community when she married her longtime friend and partner who grew up in Kapa’au. Wailana is more than deserving of The Realtor of the Year award by East Hawaii Board of Realtors.
Congrats Romy and Wailana!
