Blake Howell

When visiting Maui in the mid-1980’s, Blake fell in love with the Hawaiian Islands and vacationed here many times before he and Lynn, his partner since 1996, decided to make the Big Island their home. Blake has lived on both sides of Hawaii Island, which gives him a unique perspective when working with buyers and sellers. He currently lives, works and plays in Kailua-Kona and loves it!

Blake’s prior career was in high-tech marketing and advertising. After moving to the Island of Hawaii and taking some time off from his role as Director in one of the world’s leading ad agencies, he decided to pursue his passion for real estate. His desire to work with the best Big Island brokerage led him to join Clark Realty Corporation’s Kailua-Kona office.

In his free time, Blake is an avid paddle boarder and spends hours on the ocean off of the beautiful Kona Coast. He is often, he says, still stopped in his tracks by Kona’s awe-inspiring sunsets. You can find photos of some of his island explorations and his observations about the Kailua-Kona real estate market on his Kona Real Estate Now blog.

Whether you are a long time resident considering relocating, you are new to Hawaii’s Big Island or you are looking for a part-time Big Island residence, Blake looks forward to helping you find and purchase your own piece of paradise. If you are ready to sell your property, Blake is ready to share with you the most current market information to help you successfully list, market and close the sale of a house or parcel of land.

Please contact Blake with your questions about Hawaii real estate. He is ready to share what he loves about the Big Island with you!
