Moving to Hawaii isn't just about buying a home and expecting to hit it off from there. It is a process that involves moving your entire family and life to a new area in the middle of the Pacific. This often entails leaving behind extended family and established support networks where you live now.

Over 17 years ago, Scott Startsman helped to create the Corporate and Individual Relocation department and program for a local boutique luxury real estate firm to assist people who were moving to Hawaii. His years of experience in relocation have helped him build connections with vendors, connections in the community, and connections both across the country and locally for all industries that make up the process of moving to or from Hawaii. Scott’s work has allowed clients to have a smoother and more stress free transition.

Our program allows clients to make the move with the greatest success and the least amount of stress, giving you the opportunity to transition into your new community here in Hawaii with ease and with success.

"From the first moment we spoke with Scott we knew he was the right person to help us
transition from Florida to Hawaii. His breath of knowledge about how to make such a massive
move was instrumental in our confidence to decide to actually make the leap! Our needs were
met in every aspect including when I visited and Scott’s assistance with that visit can not be
overstated. It was the exact right move that allowed us as a family to know that this was the
right the decision. We can’t thank Scott enough for everything he did for us. We consider him a
friend as well as an excellent real estate agent." ~Erin H.
