We are a team of experienced, local real estate agents ready to help you find your new Hawaiian home. Big Island Properties is owned by RE/MAX Honolulu, and we are experienced business executives that are part of that team on the Big Island.  Clearly, with the hundreds of millions of dollars of real estate sold on the sunny Kohala Coast there was a real need for a truly international Real Estate firm that had its own agents around the world. These relationships are with actual RE/MAX agents and not with agents of another affiliated company. We can pick up the phone a call our own agents in, for example, Japan or Germany. We can speak to agents who have been trained with the RE/MAX education and ethics. Our referral business is part of the backbone of our brokerage.

In the early days of the real estate explosion on the Kohala coast so many of the brokerages covering the Kohala coast of the big Island had been locally run agencies with no international affiliations. There were no worldwide agencies here that had the ability to market a property in 120 countries around the world.

Peggy Kent, Realtor (RB24065), and Greg White, Realtor(RS84411), along with Richard Meschke, transaction manager, work together at Lava Luxury Big Island Properties, which services clients from as far south as Captain Cook all the way up the Kohala Coast to Hawi and inland to the Waimea town area.

Peggy Kent has been a Big Island property owner for 30 years and has lived in several locations on the west side of the island and in Waimea. She has been living full-time here on the Big Island for over 13 years. She is an accomplished businessperson, having owned, run and managed several multi-million-dollar corporations. Peggy comes to the team with significant banking and insolvency experience. She has acted as a general contractor and has constructed multi-million-dollar single family homes and well as industrial projects. Tired of all the international travel and after 40 years in a heavy industrial business she elected to settle here on the Big Island and has changed careers. The reason she chose real estate is that she wanted to help folks experience the American dream of home ownership and to help successful people find their happy place in paradise. She enjoys outdoor sports of all kinds and is a gourmet cook.

Greg White has been coming to the Hawaiian Islands for over 30 years and is constantly mesmerized with the beauty of the islands and the warmth of the people. For this reason he returned to the Big Island to live and work. Always enjoying renovating and managing his own investment properties, several years ago decided to obtain his real estate license here in Hawaii. Greg focuses on property management, delivering services to property owners and renters with the aloha spirit. As a trusted partner of anyone needing rental management expertise, Greg delivers a full understanding of property challenges unique to this tropical environment. With a past background building strong customer relationships, Greg deals easily with vacation renters from all over the world. Greg is an avid tennis player and volunteers with the Kahilu Theater, sharing his passion for the arts with others. 

Richard Meschke has over 40 years of experience in the financial and legal fields. He has served as a CFO and in various finance and development roles for several major companies, completing a number of corporate acquisition transactions. He holds degrees in both finance and law. As a transaction coordinator he handles all aspects of a transaction, starting with the purchase contract and continuing through closing.
