First on the Island. First for You.

Kauai Realty, Inc. was established in 1960 by Clinton Shiraishi who foresaw the growth in Kauai’s housing market and created an agency to serve the Island’s growing number of home and landowners. Kauai Realty became the very first real estate company on Kauai. Dedicated to integrity, sincerity and diligence, Shiraishi, who remains President of Kauai Realty today, fostered a spirit of hard-working aloha and a vision to provide exceptional real estate services on the island of Kauai.  These values and ethics still serve Kauai Realty today.

Kauai’s Real Estate Experts

Most of Kauai Realty’s agents were born and raised on Kauai and hold more professional certifications than any other real estate firm on the island. Many of the subdivisions residents now call home were initially developed through or brokered by Kauai Realty, including Kawaihau Estates, Wailua Riverview Estates, Ulu Ko, Laaukea Estates, Puako and Pikake Phase 1 & 2. Kauai Realty has also been entrusted with the original condominium brokerage of Poipu Sands, Lae Nani and Village Manor, to name a few.


As one of Kauai’s longest standing local businesses, our commitment also extends to the island of Kauai and the people who make up our community. Kauai Realty plays a leadership role in the real estate community and in raising public awareness about local real estate issues.
