Malia's expertise and knowledge of the real estate industry have led to her receiving the honors of International President's Circle and Diamond Society during her career. Malia loves to spend time enjoying the island and being close to the ocean.
"In addition to, and perhaps more important than, all of the typical traits one wants in a realtor (knowledge of the local market, attention to detail, listening to the needs of her clients, etc.), Malia embodies the most important aspect of all: Trust. She represented us as the buyers of a property for which she was also the listing agent. From the start of our interaction, it was clear that she had our best interests at heart, while also taking care of her other client in the transaction, the seller. Not an easy line to walk, and yet she did so with such ease and integrity that it felt like doing business with family. Every aspect of the negotiation process was as filled with a sense of great care for all parties involved."

“We have had the great luck to have worked with Malia Powers as our Kauai real estate agent for more than ten years, during which time she has represented us in multiple real estate transactions in Kauai. Malia has tremendous first-hand knowledge of the island, having grown up on Kauai’s north shore, and had a deep familiarity with the immediate neighborhood of every property we considered purchasing, regardless of what part of Kauai’s north shore it was located in. Her knowledge stretches far beyond that of just knowing “real estate” - it’s knowledge of the land itself , knowledge that comes from spending one’s entire life around it, and knowledge that is conveyed with feeling, intelligence, insight, and most of all, with the integrity that comes from knowing the land like an ancient Kauai native knew the land. We don't think of Malia as our real estate agent - we think of her as a special friend who has been our guide to the deeper experience of Kauai. In addition, Malia is simply outstanding at every step of the property-buying experience - negotiation, managing interpersonal relationships in a way that leaves everyone involved always feeling like a winner.”
- Mike & Deborah Z – Mill Valley, California
"Hard to say enough about Malia. Right on top of everything from beginning to end. We talked about and set the price just right to encourage early activity. And the pictures taken of the house inside and out were very important in setting the stage and picturing the house just as it should be. Good relationship. And knowledge of the market and neighborhood crucial. You want to sell but not oversell and be honest. Just right."
