My name is Monica Starleaf and I work as Realtor® Broker with Coldwell Banker Island Properties. I am an efficient, logical and “bottom line” kind of person. People say that I have a heart of gold, and I certainly insist that my clients have an enjoyable, professional experience as they make a purchase that will change their life.
Maui is my home for more than 30 years. I provide my clients with decades of personal experience, living, working and raising a family here on the island. When I first moved to Maui from Southern California in 1978, I was only planning on staying for six months. But I immediately felt at home on the island, and I’m still here. I attended Maui Community College, and then finished my degree in accounting at the University of Hawaii at Manoa on Oahu.
For nearly two decades, I have helped people make Maui their home. I worked as a Mortgage Loan Officer at Wells Fargo Home Mortgage for 13 years. During that time, I won numerous customer service and national “Top 10% Producer” awards - all while raising my two daughters.
Not only do I have an extensive financial background, I also have a stellar reputation for being honest, trustworthy and walking my clients through every step of the real estate process. From negotiating with sellers and buyers to showing you a condo or home in South Maui, I will ensure you understand every part of the sale or purchase.
I bring years of experience with Maui real estate to every transaction: I’ve personally navigated the challenges and rewards of homeownership with several Maui properties, and have mastered the intricacies of all matters related to property acquisition here on the island. I have also owned and managed a vacation condo as well as long-term rental property.
Both of my grown daughters currently reside in Oregon. I like to travel - especially to Oregon - and spend my free time exercising, riding my horse, reading, snorkeling and hiking. On Maui, Hana is my favorite getaway: I try to escape several times a year for few days of rest and relaxation.
It is very important to me to give back to the community that I love! Through the years, I have volunteered my time to various causes: PTA president at Haiku School, President of the Hawaii State Dressage Society and I have organized, prepped and served many hundreds of dinners at the local homeless shelter, Ka Hale A Ke Ola. I have also helped fundraise for organizations including Habitat for Humanity, the Maui Food Bank, and the Maui Academy of Performing Arts.
Living on Maui has given me the life of my dreams. I want to make that possible for you, especially if you are looking for properties in South Maui, Kihei, Wailea or Makena.
