Jessica Gauthier

Meet Jessica

As a Realtor Broker on Hawai’i Island since 2005, I have connected with hundreds of clients and colleagues. I have built a trusted team of professionals to assist my clients in all matters of real estate management and sales, and I look forward to future connections through my firm, Salt Water Real EstateLLC and Salt Water Vacations founded in 2020.

Raised in Atlanta, GA, I grew to love real property early in life.  My father worked as a property manager in intown Atlanta neighborhoods steeped in history and architecture.  My mother was a professor at Clark Atlanta University and the three of us renovated our old home in Inman Park over several decades.  In the 1990s I moved to Denver, CO where 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 Hawai’i 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 volunteering for several non-profits including Hawaii Island Realtors (President 2022) and Zonta International. Micah, a Navy veteran, founded and operates Mental Restorations, a not-for-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.
