Company Background

Hawaii Vacation Rentals and Pattie Freeman

Hawaii Vacation Rentals and Pattie Freeman

We are in the business of managing properties for the purpose of offering it to visitors and residents of the Big Island. It is therefore our mission to owners of properties to provide superior management services that will maximize the income potential of their properties. It is through satisfied guests that everyone’s interests are best served. Our goal is to operate under a win-win philosophy. What is good for guests must also be good for owners of the property and must be good for the interests of HVR. All must receive sufficient value for their efforts, investment and dollars spent, to remain a satisfied participant. As a homeowner represented by HVR we have a partnership in business. “Winning at the expense of someone losing isn’t partnership and isn’t sustainable. Think win-win and long-term growth.”

HVR has been providing management services to the Kohala Coast since 1985. The business started with a local real estate agent who was asked by a few of her clients to maintain and rent their properties when they were not in residence. In 1994 Patricia Freeman purchased the business, which at that time managed 12 properties. Patricia’s (most call her Pattie) background was selling luxury properties on the island of Oahu. First class service is what her Owner’s and Guests have come to expect.

Some of the comments from Pattie’s guests are “we credit Pattie Freeman, owner of Hawaii Vacation Rentals for making our repeat stays intimate, relaxing experiences. Her homes are filled with amenities from corkscrews to beach towels and beach chairs. We appreciate Freeman’s attention to detail. She also makes sure her guests have what they need. If you want daily maid service, she’ll arrange it. If you completely want to be left alone, she makes sure you have peace and quiet.”

Pattie Freeman, Real Estate Broker has a unique, friendly way of helping you find your perfect vacation rental property or a home of your very own. Her attention to detail and genuine interest in what you are seeking as your dream come true are just a few of the reasons her guests, owners, buyers and sellers like to work with her. She is available for real estate consultation as well as assisting with a sell or purchase.

The Vacation Rental Industry is growing each year as travelers discover the thrill and comfort of staying in a home or condo rather than resorts and hotels. In order to be the very best that we can be and offer the most professional service, we maintain memberships with the National Association of Realtors, Hawaii Island Board of Realtors, Hawaii Visitor’s Bureau, National Association of Residential Property Manager’s, and the Vacation Rental Manager’s Association. Pattie believes in giving back to the community as well and is often times found on committees in the community to help with local projects.

Our philosophy is simple – We want to personally know the preference of accommodations for each guest. Then we can provide the best home, services and setting for an ideal vacation. We allow the dolphins, whales, turtles, sunsets and Hawaii to take care of the rest. We want to personally know the preferences of each owner and strive to do the very best to accommodate their wishes while keeping our services and care of the properties up to very high standards. This sometimes requires standardizing of some of our procedures; however we will do our best to facilitate any special requirements you may have as much as we can.

The Kohala Center has won a NOAA grant to assist Puako Makai Watch with our Reef-Greeter info booth. It will provide advertising design work to attract volunteers, conduct volunteer training sessions, provide data collection formats, volunteer t-shirts and booth materials. Our goal to be successful with this educational outreach effort is to enlist enough volunteers to operate a booth at both Paniau and Waialea Bay two or more days per month. I am proud to have initiated an association with The Kohala Center for our reef protection efforts. Their Reef Teach education program at Kahalu’u Bay is a fine example, highlighting their ability and experience thru Cindi and Matt and their successful grant writing team.. We are lucky to have them working with us to expand our capabilities. Contact Randy or myself for more about the Reef-Greeter info booth. NEXT: The Kohala Center is also willing to help with a grant proposal for a Biological Monitoring Program for the Puako reef. Please email the PuakoCommunityAssociation Board members, listed above, asking them to act in support of this important part of our reef protection efforts. A Hui Hou, Phil
