Thank you for visiting my page and wanting to know more about me. I moved to Kauai 22 years ago from San Francisco, where I enjoyed a career in advertising. My mother (and broker) Val Pilaria had already moved here from the Santa Barbara, CA area (where my mom specialized in horse ranches for 20 years), with my dad Rowland in 1992 and were established in Real Estate on Kauai’s South shore. Having worked in a supporting role for the realtors in my family I finally decided to get my license 8 years ago and join the family business. I recently decided to add Vacation Rental Management to my job description and started my own brokerage, Aloha Life Properties, LLC.
I have my ILHM (Institute for Luxury Home Marketing) certificate and with my graphic design and advertising background embraced the challenge of real estate on Kauai with great enthusiasm. My family and I love our lifestyle on Kauai with the water and hiking adventures it presents, but at the same time I am a committed professional when it comes to my work.
I have two happy young adult kids, a dog and a horse I enjoy when not showing houses. We are active in our church, Kauai Christian Fellowship, the highschool swim team, and travel adventures when we can. You may find some homes you see on Kauai have some of my art work, another hat I wear when I have spare time and inspiration.
With Kauai’s challenging real estate, you need help from a professional you can trust. A helper who goes the extra mile with Aloha.
My name is Shari Pilaria, I am that realtor.
