As a Realtor since 2005, I have worked with real estate investments in east Hawai`i with a primary focus on the buying, selling, and managing of vacation rentals. I have built a team of professionals to assist my clients in all matters of real estate management and sales, and I look forward to future connections as I proudly launch Salt Water Real Estate, LLC and Salt Water Vacations.
Born and raised on the East Coast into a real estate family, I have a father who is a retired property manager and two parents who are real estate investors. I have renovated old homes from Atlanta to Denver to Hilo, and I owned and operated a faux-finish painting business for 10 years. My knowledge of and passion for home renovation helps clients understand home maintenance issues large and small.
My husband Micah and I have lived on the Big Island since the early 2000s. For the whole Gauthier family, life in Hawai`i means connecting with ‘ohana (family), neighbors, and community, and thriving together in harmony with nature. I give back to the Big Island community by serving as the President of the Board of Directors of the non-profit HawaiiCon, which supports and promotes STEAM education (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math). Micah, a Navy veteran, founded and operates Mental Restorations, a non-profit whose mission is to restore the mental health of veterans and first responders. Our two children are both artists and extraordinary humans, following in their parents’ footsteps in making the world a more beautiful and kind place.
