Bringing a successful record of nearly a decade of real estate sales on Maui, Josh Jerman has distinguished himself as both a rising star and industry leader in Hawaii real estate. This should come as no surprise, as he has proven time and time again that the market may change, but ambition never does.
The Josh Jerman team includes two salespeople, Souksamlane Jerman, R(S) and Ilsa Mitchell Jencks, R(S). His team runs like a well-oiled machine. The sales volume and level of service they're able to provide is astounding. The Josh Jerman team has adapted to the changes in both the real estate market as well as the industry, by incorporating systems and team members to handle not only short sales and bank-owned inventory (REOs), but also luxury real estate in Wailea and Makena in South Maui.
Raised in Upcountry Maui, Josh attended Baldwin High School before heading to Seattle to attend the University of Washington. There, he graduated cum laude with two bachelor's degrees, one in International Relations of the Asia-Pacific Region and the other in Comparative Religion. He has traveled the world (23 countries and counting), and has lived in Indonesia, Nepal and Scotland. He has hiked to Machu Picchu and to Mount Everest's Base Camp, canoed the Amazon River and swam in the Ganges, trekked in the North Pole and touched the Great Wall of China. Throughout his adventures, Josh developed an appreciation, awareness and respect for all people, an experience that inspired him to give back to his community.
Josh returned to Maui to start his career, and over the years, he has earned a solid reputation for professionalism and personal integrity. His hard work and success has not gone unnoticed. Josh has been recognized by Pacific Business News as one of the "Top 40 Under Forty" professionals in the State of Hawai'i. He was also named one of the Maui Weekly's Unsung Heroes of 2010 for his philanthropic endeavors, as well as Person of the Year in 2011. Josh was also honored as the recipient of Maui County's Young Business Person of Year Award for 2012, and was recently listed as one of the Top 100 Realtors in the State of Hawai'i.
Josh's expertise as a broker extends far beyond the four walls of his office in the Wailea Town Center. He serves on the Realtors Association of Maui (RAM) Board of Directors, the Hawai'i Association of Realtors Young Professionals Network and the RAM Education Committee. And when it comes to education, it's safe to say Josh has the market cornered. As a real estate columnist for the Maui Weekly, he encouraged readers to Ask Josh about a range of issues. In addition, as the founder of the Josh Jerman Foundation and the Josh Jerman Maui Nui Scholarship, he has awarded more than $26,000 to college-bound high school students across Maui County.
If there's one thing to be said about Josh, it's that he is dedicated to delivering the highest level of customer service, in order to achieve the best results for his clientele.
Sunny began her real estate career in 1977, with American National Group, Beverly Hills, California. American National encompassed a full range of real estate related Companies, specializing in large residential subdivisions and apartment construction and management in Southern and Northern California, as well as Arizona.
In 1985, she went on her own, and worked as an independent contractor with two developers of large apartment complexes in Southern California. Working in this environment entailed all facets of development, from land acquisition and land entitlements through construction completion and management of finished projects.
In 1991 Sunny moved to Lahaina, Maui and joined the real estate community in Hawaii, specializing in Resort and Residential real estate island wide. Before forming Maui Paradise Properties, LLC she was a member of Kapalua Realty Company for 8 years, and prior to that owned Maui Paradise Properties as a sole proprietorship and Principal Broker.
Along with being the Principal Broker in a full time real estate career, she and her husband Richard volunteer time, helping to promote various fundraising efforts benefiting the community and improving Maui’s quality of life. Off time pleasure pursuits include golf, tennis, scuba diving and photography – living in a summer environment 12 months a year is conducive to an outdoors lifestyle!
Being raised in Lahaina in the 70's was fun, to say the least. Everything was happening, the building boom, the tourist industry, the waves, Maui was becoming a world class destination. With my family being heavily involved in the building industry of the late 60's and into the 70's and 80's I could see that things where changing fast. Life is full of compromises, but where do you draw the line? Leaving Hawaii was mine. After surfing through high school at Lahainaluna and moving to the Big Island for two years at UH Hilo I finally made
it to Oahu and the University of Hawaii. Three years later and lots of surf, I was back on Maui ready to make a name for myself. Having come to the realization that surfing for a living was out of the question (the pros at that time made less than waiters) my mom convinced me that to have a real-estate license couldn't hurt. 1982 seems like a life time ago now but you know what they say "always listen to your mother".
Real-estate has been good to me. What other industry can you work in that mandates fun.
I used to joke that I made my best contacts while in the water. Guess what, its true. I have been blessed with meeting some of the most incredible people through my work and having the pleasure of helping them purchase their dream properties. Don't get me wrong, I have a strict business ethic, WORK HARD PLAY HARD. After setting up my own office in 1991 I soon learned the down side of being the boss of a real-estate firm, if you spend all your time keeping your sales people busy you don't have time to make any sales. You may remember the early nineties were not that friendly to realtors, or any one for that matter. Back to basics, I downsized my office and started doing what I love, meeting fantastic people and helping them purchase their dream.
It sure is easy to fall into that rut called reality. Home, office, cars, mortgages, kids (love the Kids) and all the responsibilities that come with "success". Is there still time to surf? Oh Ya, you make time. Having made a yearly migration chasing the big ones through the South Pacific and the Indian Oceans I can tell you from experience that nothing motivates me to work harder than a good surf trip.
Where am I now? I still spend most of my time helping friends, new and old, buy into the dream here on Maui, but I have been spending more and more time on Molokai "The Most Hawaiian Island". Just remember the next time you are in the waters of Maui or Molokai and see a guy with a big smile on his face you might be looking at the SURFER THAT SELLS REAL-ESTATE!

During this time I have been involved in or supervised over 1000 transactions with over $250 million in volume.
Jeremy Stice, R(S), : I began my career in late 2006, the peak of the market here in Maui, and have never seen an easy transaction. I have closed many transactions during this time period and I am committed to our mutual success. I enjoy working with motivated and genuine buyers and sellers of Maui real estate. I feel blessed and very fortunate to love my job and where I have chosen to be.
