“I have known Abbe for many years in her role as an appraiser here on the Big Island. I am very excited about her transition into selling real estate, and to add her expertise, strong work ethic and spirit of Aloha to Hawaii Luxury Listings.” –Johnny Mac McElree, Founder and Principal Broker
Abbe Boon was a graphic designer, art director and photo stylist for many years. She also developed and taught classes for the graphics program at The University of California, Santa Cruz. She eventually segued into becoming a certified residential appraiser with 22 years of experience, 19 of which have been on the Big Island. Becoming a realtor felt like a natural next step in her real estate career. Her extensive knowledge of West Hawaii, her attention to detail along with her sense of aesthetics and professionalism has enabled Abbe to offer clients a unique and personalized experience.
“With the competitive housing market in the Aloha state, you want to be sure to choose a good-hearted real estate agent who knows the true value of property in Hawaii. This is precisely why my husband and I chose Abbe Boon when it came time to sell our beloved home on the Big Island. Besides being a competent realtor, Abbe has been an appraiser in Hawaii for almost 20 years. When I first met her, it was obvious that she had done her homework: she knew exactly how much the list price of our home should be and how we should stage it. But not only that– Abbe helped us jump through the hoops of finding a bilingual international tax attorney in Honolulu, and explained with great patience the workings of ESCROW which were way beyond my realm of understanding. Abbe always had our best interests at heart. I am so grateful and feel that I was lucky to find her! We couldn’t have done it without her.” -Mona Toyama, client
