Whether you’ve lived here all your life or are moving here for the first time, I understand the excitement and anticipation that goes along with the process of finding the right home. If you are preparing to move away from the Big Island, I can assist you in that process too, making it as efficient and stress-free as possible.
Licensed in 2006 and with Clark Realty since 2012, I take great pride in my affiliation with Clark Realty, a company founded on the importance of in-depth market knowledge; commitment to integrity, aloha and excellence beyond expectation. From the initial consultation, to contract negotiation, to the close of escrow you can rest assured that I will be with you every step of the way. I know first-hand the value of patience, perseverance, understanding and hard work. Those are values you can count on from me as we work together to make the right real estate choices for you and your family.
The Hawaiian culture and lifestyle of the Islands drew my wife and me to the Big Island from Newport Beach, California in 2000. Together we raised our three boys on a coffee and macadamia farm in South Kona until moving to Holualoa in 2012. Hawaii is where I always wanted to live, and each year I find my gratitude growing. It’s this appreciation that has given me an enthusiasm and desire to help make that dream come true for others. I look forward to assisting you make your Hawaii property ownership goals come true!
"My wife Meghan and I began looking for our first home way back in 2016 and we were fortunate enough to be referred to Sean by a friend. When we first met Sean it was at an open house and he was so relaxed, friendly, and thoughtful in addressing our questions, we knew we had to work with him.
Over the course of three years, Sean stuck by us and helped us to persevere and overcome our doubts about if we could find a place for us. He met with us to look at houses from Kona Paradise all the way to far side of Waimea. He was always patient, always available to respond to our questions and requests whenever they popped up, and he imparted a knowledge and confidence on us that helped get us to the right house. Even when we didn't follow his advice, and it turned out he was right (which was every time!), he still exuded patience and understanding and helped get us back on track.
Sean has an unwavering positive outlook and demeanor, and that was so reassuring to my wife and I in what can be a stressful and frustrating process, both in finding a home and actually buying it. He got us through it, and we will always be immensely grateful to him. We would not hesitate to team up with Sean again in the future and would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a real estate agent who truly puts his clients first.""

"Sean, we have been together so many years looking for the perfect real estate for me that it is hard to imagine our tour coming to an end--from Laupohoehoe to Ocean View. You get along with everybody--constantly encouraging and upbeat. We had some fun! Two houses bought and one sold--all to a profit! Your patience with me was unbelievable. The help you always provided is greatly appreciated. I will never forget you and sell this last home when I am gone!"

"When my husband and I decided to relocate from Oahu to the Big Island, we had the pleasure and good fortune of working with Sean Allen. He was the epitome of patience, as we took three years to find the property that was right for us. Sean was consistently optimistic, receptive to our needs, and responsive. He went the extra mile to research and preview properties for us so that we would not have to spend time and money coming to the island. While it sometimes seemed as though we would never find what we were looking for, Sean remained positive and attentive. When we finally found our dream property, we ran into various frustrations that often accompany Real Estate Transactions - competing bidders, funding challenges, and easement issues. Sean did everything within his power to shoulder the brunt of the frustration and he made the process as stress-free as possible for us. An excellent Realtor and an all-around good guy, we now consider Sean a friend. If the need arises in the future, we will not hesitate to use his services, and we unequivocally recommend him to anyone seeking a Realtor.

"Sean has assisted us and our family members with several Real Estate Transactions, and he's been great to work with. When we were looking for a home in Volcano, Sean made the hours long drive many, many a time, and wrote many an offer before a deal was finally struck. We would recommend Sean to anyone looking for a quality Realtor."

"I have been working with Sean for almost 3 months. In that time, he has patiently explained to me the vagaries of the real estate market in Big Island, the terminology and even strategy when making an offer.
He has driven across the island to look at a house for me, and gone out of his way to ensure that I get the information that I need quickly. He has always made himself available for a chat via Skype, or via email and never gives any indication that his patience is wearing thin. Since he is dealing with me, that probably deserves a medal.
My experience so far has been highly positive, and I would like to recommend him to anyone looking for a buyer`s agent. He`s a good guy and will work hard for your interests."

"If you are considering a move on the Big Island or coming to the Big Island, Sean is the guy to work with. We were vacationing here last year when we decided to look at property. Thru an amazing stroke of good fortune we met Sean. We told him of our vacation & desire to look at property in the Kona area. It amazed us that he would take so much time to show us every property we wanted to see when we were here for just a few days on vacation. Like so many people from the mainland, we always dreamed of living in paradise, and Sean made that happen. He is the kind of Realtor that is a joy to work with. No pressure, no hurrying us from home to home & a huge amount of patience when we negotiated the contract. It's difficult to put into words how helpful and positive Sean was during the process of buying a home on the Big Island, when you are living on the mainland. His attention to detail & communication during the home buying process gave us the comfort level we needed for a long distance home purchase.
Sean did a fantastic job representing us during the home buying process. Since we have arrived on the Big Island Sean & his family have become great friends. They represent the Aloha spirit in every way! We are very fortunate to have Sean & his family apart of our circle of friends & family.

"Last year, for months and months I was looking for a property--Sean showed me Everything!
I AM NOT EASY TO Please--HIS PATIENCE AND UNDERSTANDING made my decision easier and I bought the best investment I could have--still works for me and I am making money!"

"I would not trust my real estate transactions with anyone else but Sean. He is amazing! Sean helped us navigate a confusing short sale for purchase of our house, & was in our corner every step of the way. He knew which loads of paperwork we needed, & hit deadline after deadline with important filings. He gave us so much advice, was friendly & smart, & calmed us down & guided us confidently through one of the more stressful things I've ever done in my life.
Thank you, Sean!" ~~Stephanie Vanhoff
