Ken Smith R (S) – The Natural Choice
Maui is a whole world unto itself. Here, one can find a veritable treasure of pristine beaches, breathtaking sunsets, and mile after mile of trails perfect for running and bicycling. Though he has lived on the island for 35 years, Ken continues to be amazed by the natural beauty of Maui. An avid outdoorsman, Ken can think of no better place to pursue his hobbies of running and swimming.
“It’s almost as if this island was put here specifically for outdoor enthusiasts,” Ken says. “The climate is perfect, and the scenery is absolutely magnificent.” For Ken, who loves to run and swim, and has run in 20 marathons (including the Honolulu Marathon and the “Run to the Sun” Ultra-Marathon), it’s this incomparable beauty that keeps him company while he’s out and about. And to him, there is no better companion.
Some things, it seems, just come naturally. That’s also a truth that can be applied to Ken’s career as a real estate professional serving the Island of Maui. After successful careers in the business world, including his work as the proprietor of Ken’s Natural Foods, working in the real estate industry seemed like a natural transition for Ken.
And the results of his work helping people buy and sell property on the island have been as special and memorable as a Maui sunset. “I really enjoy helping people achieve the goal of finding their own little piece of Maui,” Ken says. “I treasure the opportunity to assist them in such an important move.”
A family man who raised his three children on Maui, Ken naturally understands the concerns you have for family when you need to make a move. That’s why he does all within his power to make your property purchase or sale as smooth as possible. When the time comes to buy or sell property on Maui – or even if you just have questions about the complex ever-changing local market – call on Ken Smith R (S), The Natural Choice in Maui Real Estate.
After a lengthy career as a stock broker and as proprietor of the popular Ken’s Natural Foods, Ken simply did what came naturally. As a man who loves to work with people and is proud to go the extra mile to help them succeed, Ken saw his transition to the world of real estate as a natural move.
Many years after making that move, Ken looks back on it with pride and happiness. “I wake up every morning with an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of those I work with,” Ken says. “That’s something I take very seriously.”
After 25 years in the business, Ken feels blessed to be working with his daughter-in-law, Melissa, and the newest member to The Smith Team, Lindsey Taylor. Everyone on The Smith Team shares the same work ethics of honesty, integrity, and a sense of fair play as well as a dedication to always serve their clients best interests.
