Michael Blaz ABR, CRS
Owner and Principal Broker
With over 30-years’ experience in the business, I can honestly say that I have come full circle. My early years were spent with a Coldwell Banker brokerage in Santa Cruz, CA, where I earned top 5% in-the-nation status by my third year. The walls in my office were adorned with plaques marking my accomplishments; they are packed away safely in a box now somewhere, I’m sure.
Then, in 2003, it was time for me to return to Maui and create a business for myself here. I was fortunate enough to align myself with Wailea Realty back in the day when they were a small boutique office aptly referred to as “The People Who Know Wailea Best“. The iconic Helen McArthur (may she R.I.P.) was owner and Principal Broker. With Helen’s support and direction I was able to take my game to an even higher level and became one of the top agents in an office of Top Producers.
Again with her encouragement, I took the Broker’s exam and got my license. I also completed my Council of Residential Specialists (CRS) classes and am proud to say I hold a credential that only 5% of agents nationwide can lay claim to. My Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR) designation soon followed.
While the circle continues, it was essentially completed in 2012 when I opened my own brokerage. Actually, I was following my loosely held long-term game plan by applying the fairly extensive data base I had compiled and focusing primarily on former clients, friends, referrals, and the very special new clients I meet along the way for my business.
No, sorry; when we work together I won’t be handing you off to my assistant to work with. I won’t be sending you photos of my grandkids on Instagram, or boring you with details of my last trip to Wine Country on Facebook. I do use today’s technology to enhance your time with me in every way possible to create a win/win experience for you.
I look forward to getting to know you and helping you achieve your goals of owning, or in some cases selling, Maui Real Estate.
