Renée was born & raised in Perth, Western Australia. After her Hawaii-raised husband suggested they move back to Hawaii in 2009, Renée was immediately on board. Following a successful career in sales, and product management in the fashion/surf industry down under, she followed her heart and took on the real estate world in Hawaii in 2011.
Since then, Renée has been very fortunate to have represented some amazing people and has built a reputation for offering exceptional service to her clients helping them navigate the market and stay on top of current trends. She is deeply involved with her community and offers local insight alongside a valuable understanding of the property market. From the tropical paradise found in the coastal resort areas to the uplands of beautiful scenic Waimea, Renée continues to connect her clients with their ideal property and makes the process appear seamless.
When she is not out assisting clients, Renée is living with Aloha enjoying time at the beach, the occasional peloton session, and spending quality time with her family and their two dogs.
If you were to ask Renee Higgins why she is a real estate agent, she would say she loves making dreams come true. And helping people find their dream home in Hawaii is one of the best ways she can think of to make that happen. Primarily serving the Kohala Coast, Renee’s mission is to match her clients to their dream homes in one of the most beautiful places in the world.
Born and raised in Perth, Australia, Renee made the life-changing move to Hawaii in 2009, after she fell in love with the Aloha State. With a previous background in sales and marketing, she decided to pursue a real estate career in 2011. Once she obtained her real estate license, she transitioned into a full-time career as a realtor on the Big Island. As a real estate professional, Renee’s mission is to help navigate her clients through every step of a real estate transaction, from the first meeting to closing day. Because Hawaii is such a popular vacation destination, it can be tricky to navigate the ever-changing real estate market–which is why Renee prides herself on her work.
As a longtime resident and an established professional with a rich sales background, Renee’s varied skillset serves her clients well through every stage of the transaction. Nothing is more rewarding than connecting with her clients.
Whether she’s working with buyers or sellers, she prides herself in going the extra mile and providing five-star service for her clients. Her primary focus is in luxury real estate, working with buyers and sellers who are either full-time residents or prospective homeowners searching for the perfect vacation home.
As a longtime resident of the Big Island, one of Renee’s favorite aspects of living in Hawaii is the incredible work-life balance. While she works incredibly hard to ensure her clients are well-taken care of, Renee and her family have the opportunity to enjoy everything the Aloha State has to offer, from the beautiful, sandy beaches to the near-perfect weather year-round. And she is not alone in feeling this way. For so many, living in Hawaii is the ultimate dream, and Renee feels so blessed she gets to help her clients find their own piece of paradise.
When she isn’t connecting clients to their dream homes, you can find Renee spending quality time with her family and friends, playing with her two dogs, practicing yoga, using her Peloton, cooking, and hanging out at the beach.
