Samar was born in Rhinebeck, New York and moved to Kailua Kona on the Big Island at the age of three. As the daughter of an architect, she was exposed to the building industry in Hawaii from a very young age. Samar was fortunate enough to witness the creation of some of the most beautiful homes from the initial design phase through development to ultimately becoming wonderful neighborhoods in her hometown. Her personal interest in Real Estate came from this exposure as well as her passion for her community. Samar graduated from Kealakehe High School in Kailua Kona and went on to earn her Bachelor’s Degree in Business with a minor in Marketing at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. As a resident of the Big Island, Samar has seen the island evolve over the past three decades, culturally and architecturally. As a local, she is deeply aware of the hidden treasures that may become someone’s special home. Samar has deep roots and connections in the community. Her knowledge and appreciation of Hawaii’s neighborhoods, families, and properties is very personal to her. In her spare time, Samar enjoys the ocean, yoga, cooking, and spending time with her husband and two children.
