MAUI, Hawaii, Feb. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Hawaii Life, Hawaii's leading luxury brokerage and the third largest brokerage in Hawaii, has announced the acquisition of Maui Estates International, a Maui-based real estate firm known for representing high-net-worth clients and properties. Mary Anne Fitch, former Owner and Principal Broker of Maui Estates International will be joining Hawaii Life along with her team. Fitch is well-known on Maui for her affiliation with Christie's International Real Estate. As part of the transaction, she was instrumental in negotiations to have Hawaii Life become the Exclusive Affiliate of Christie's International Real Estate in the luxury markets of Kaua'i, Maui, Lanai, Molokai, and the Big Island of Hawai'i. In addition, Fitch will serve as Hawaii Life's liaison to Christie's International Real Estate.
Maui Estates International has rebranded as Hawaii Life and Mary Anne Fitch and her team bring over 50 of the most desirable listings on the island to the firm. Fitch brings a solid track record of success in Maui real estate, having sold over $500 million in real estate and representing hundreds of clients in transactions around the island. She founded Maui Estates International in 2009 and began working with Christie's in 2011. Since then, she has taken an active role in the network.
"I first met Matt Beall and his team when they invited me to speak at their annual conference, Worthshop, in 2012," Fitch recalled. "It was immediately apparent to me that this was a firm that prized collaboration over competition. It was the first time in my career I've encountered a group of people whose core values were so completely aligned with my own."
Since starting in 2008, Hawaii Life Real Estate Brokers has enjoyed incredible growth and success and has grown to over 240 brokers, agents, and employees across 14 offices in Hawaii. Hawaii Life is now the third largest brokerage in Hawaii and has been acknowledged with awards both in Hawaii and nationally. The brokerage also shares their love of Hawaii with the world through the popular television show, "Hawaii Life" on HGTV. "Mary Anne is such a respected name in Maui real estate," said Matt Beall of Hawaii Life. "We've admired her and her team for years. We are thrilled to become part of Christie's International Real Estate and look forward to attending the upcoming international conference and meeting other brokers in the network."
With these two forces in Hawaii real estate now combined, Hawaii Life is poised to deliver their shared client base, increased customer service and the power of the Christie's network providing worldwide visibility for properties and referral services for optimum client care.
