Mary Blyth

Meet Mary

My love affair with Hawaii started when I was luck enough to spend a summer at Diamond Head with family friends as a ten year old. I became enamored with the endless summer lifestyle, the warm ocean, swaying palms and the fragrant plumeria trees that were everywhere! But it was the spirit of Aloha, in the people I met, that touched me deeply and inspired me to “live Aloha”.

Once I graduated from high school in the Bay Area where I grew up, I came back to the islands for an extended visit in 1973 and ended up falling in love on Maui and ultimately moving to the north shore of Kauai to raise my growing family. There I founded and built a private K-6 school which allowed me to develop deep roots in community and business relations.

After a period of extended studies in childbirth education, life coaching and hospice training, I relocated to the Big Island in 2005 to become the Perinatal Educator at North Hawaii Community Hospital until 2020. During that time, I also helped my sons open the Papa’aloa Country Store and Cafe where they serve our Hamakua Coast community with Aloha 7 days a week.

Like many others, the catalyst for my next career choice was covid. I decided to get my real estate license as a natural extension of my commitment to supporting others through life’s big transitions. Every real estate transaction involves and “opening” and a “closing” (aka escrow:) and needs a trusted, reliable and experienced agent who is “on call” to facilitate, educate and be supportive throughout the often challenging process —just as the journey to birth and parenthood requires.

For me, being a Realtor is all about safeguarding the trust my clients place in me and always acting with integrity. I love people and take great pride in building relationships that last well beyond the sale. To quote Theodore Roosevelt: “Nobody cares how much you know, until they know how much you care.” My goal is to have clients who feel cared for and informed on every level. My hope is that they also develop deep respect for this very special place and its wonderful people, just as I have.
