Posted by Julie Ford — August 31, 2015

1441036777HONOLULU, HI - Elite Pacific Properties, a top volume luxury brokerage and vacation rental firm with offices on Oahu, Maui, Kauai, and the Big Island, has announced the addition of Lanakai’s top Realtor® to its ranks. Joel Cavasso, R(B) has the distinction of being the agent with the highest volume of sales in Lanikai of all time. He is also #3 in all-time sales volume in the surrounding Kailua area.

A Realtor® since 1978, Joel has consistently ranked in the top 50 of Hawaii Business Magazine’s 1441036820Top 100 Realtors. Joel closed over $30 million in transactions during 2014 alone, and is on track to outperform that amount this year. In the first six months of 2015, Joel was the 8th highest volume Realtor on Oahu with nearly $20 million in closed sales. In addition to Oahu’s windward side markets, Joel has also represented development projects on Kauai and Maui.

Previously with Kailua Beach Realty, Joel made the switch to Elite after watching its successful growth in luxury markets. “I am thrilled to be joining the ranks of Elite Pacific Properties,” he said. “Elite’s brand is top of mind in Hawaii’s luxury market. After spending nearly 40 years building special expertise in oceanfront estates in Lanikai, Kailua, Kaneohe, Kahala, and Hawaii Kai, I was drawn to Elite’s similar commitment to these special neighborhoods. This, as well as Elite’s unmatched support for their agents, made Elite a compelling draw.”

“Joel’s extensive experience and attention to clients make him a great match for us,” said Paul Mayer, Managing Partner, for Elite. “He has built an extensive network and has an impeccable reputation. He is known for finding properties that are not yet listed on the open market. His clients rave about his ability to negotiate contracts and close escrow in a seamless manner. He is a consummate professional, and he is a perfect fit for our team.”
