During the decade that Colleen Sullivan lived and worked in the publishing industry in Philadelphia she came to clearly understand the vast difference between the long winters of the Northeast and the gentleness of Hawaii’s tropical climate. After visiting the Hawaiian Islands, she soon relocated with a one-way ticket and one suitcase.
Soon after arriving in Kona, she met her future husband Timo, a Big-Island raised geospatial research specialist at The University of Hawai’i, Hilo. Several months later, she also began working in the Marketing Department at Clark Realty.
When Timo and Colleen purchased their home together in Hilo, she was able to closely observe the sales side of real estate with a new perspective. Now, she is able to combine both her expertise in real estate marketing with her background in contract negotiation and insights into the mortgage, inspection, appraisal and escrow processes.
Colleen’s vivacious personality, tenacious work ethic and years of experience in marketing combine perfectly with her passion for all things real estate. She is committed to serving every client with the highest level of professionalism and integrity while making the purchase or sale process as enjoyable as possible.
Colleen holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from La Salle University and is also a Registered Yoga Instructor and teaches regularly at Yoga Centered Studio in downtown Hilo.
"My experience with Colleen Sullivan as my Realtor was top-notch. I was looking to buy a smaller home in a very limited geographical area. Colleen worked with me on a very personal basis and helped me to understand and FIND what I really wanted. Colleen always made herself available and would show up on short notice to take me to see potential homes. I have already recommended her to friends and family. Thank you Colleen for helping me purchase the perfect home for my growing family."

"I was feeling nervous to fly from Utah with one week to find and buy a house near Hilo. Colleen was exceptionally generous with her time, and made it her priority to support me in finding the right house. She showed me many different neighborhoods and styles of houses until we found the one that I felt would work for my family. The closing process felt as though it could be daunting as we were thousands of miles away, but Colleen made the process smooth and effortless for us. Colleen was a wonderful facilitator for my home buying process, and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home."

"Colleen was our Realtor for buying a house in Hilo, she was tremendously helpful and we highly recommend her. Great knowledge of the local market, listened to our needs and concerns, and skillfully navigated us through the buying process. She was dedicated, responded quickly to our questions no matter how small, explained details clearly, and we would love to work with her again!"

"My husband and I purchased our first home and we were fortunate to have Colleen as our realtor. Colleen was extremely knowledgeable about the local market and helped us tremendously when it came to the closing agreement. We couldn’t be happier!"
