Realtor Yvonne Summerfield


Thank you for your interest in getting to know me a little better. I’m the Principal Broker/Owner of RE/MAX KAUAI LIVING with offices in Kalaheo and Poipu Beach.

I love helping people with real estate and feel privileged to serve a wide range of clients in every price category and neighborhood throughout Kauai – one of the most beautiful islands in the world. The majority of new clients are referrals from other clients who appreciate exceptional representation and outstanding customer service. As a committed full-time real estate professional, I’m passionate about and thoroughly enjoy helping people succeed with their real estate needs & objectives here on Kauai. My client commitment includes a long-term dedicated effort to help them meet their real estate goals for a lifetime. Among my peers, I have a reputation of honesty, integrity and an ongoing desire to work together in a professional manner to achieve the best results possible for our clients. I specialize in fine homes & luxury estates, resort & second-home properties, condominiums, beachfront properties, land parcels, home lots, commercial, vacation rental, income and investment properties.

As previous residents of the Big Island, my family and I try not to take for granted the relaxed island lifestyle, wide variety of outdoor activities, numerous water sports and the Aloha spirit that our wonderful state of Hawaii provides. My husband, son and I feel blessed to live and work on this tiny, beautiful Garden Island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Our home is in Lawai, shared with our two German Shepherds. With over 20 years on Kauai, we continue to proudly share with others our enthusiasm for what truly is the most special of all places.

Stellar Sales Record
For 2019, I sold the most sales volume on Kauai and for each of the 5 years 2015-2019, I sold the most real estate transactions on Kauai. Hawaii Business Magazine named me a Hall of Fame 12-Time Top 100 Realtor In Hawaii. Out of over 20,000 real estate agents in the State of Hawaii, 9 Realtors received this award. Only 1 is on Kauai.

Unique Business Background & Experience:
A Southern California native, I grew up in Torrance and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree (concentration in Marketing) from California State University, Long Beach. Success came to me early in my career when, as an entrepreneur at the age of 17, I founded and grew a sportswear manufacturing and retail operation into an INC. 500 Company, one of the fastest growing private companies in the United States. I was also honored to received the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Young Entrepreneur of The Year Award, along with being ranked the 51st Largest Women-Owned Business in Los Angeles and LA County by the Los Angeles Business Journal. Hawaii Black Book has featured me for several years – they look at the personal and professional journeys of Hawaii’s top business executives, featuring honnorees from every major recognition program of Hawaii Business Magazine. (2019 Black Book: 339 Executives to Know).

Since 2004, when I began my career in real estate with RE/MAX here on Kauai, my business experience, marketing expertise and strong negotiating skills have all been brought to bear assisting my U.S. and international clients to achieve their varied real estate needs. Actually, what my clients say about me is more important than anything more I can tell you; read what they say by clicking on testimonials. I have an extensive list of clients who have graciously agreed to be contacted as references, which are available upon request. And there are more comments from clients found on Zillow.
