I first visited Hawaii over 40 years ago with my parents. I returned many times, always with the desire to make it my home. I lived in many areas of the mainland and overseas when I was growing up - leaving me with the feeling that change of scenery, new people, new places were to be met with a sense of adventure.

Following an international career, Ann and I embraced the opportunity to settle on Kauai. I soon discovered that golf, bridge, reading, watching sports on TV, doing nothing all were fun, but I still needed more challenges in my life. I joined Century 21 - All Islands and discovered a new, rewarding career. In October 2017, the company was bought by Oceanfront Sotheby's International Realty, and I became part of a leading full service real estate company with all the advantages of being aligned with Sotheby's international prestige.

I have always been a "people person" and it is my goal to provide my clients with superior service at all times. I am knowledgeable, supportive, and committed to helping you find the property right for you. I am easily reachable by cell phone or by email. I communicate with my clients regularly from the beginning of a transaction to the successful conclusion.

I specialize in Princeville, Hanalei, the North Shore and all of Kauai. (I have fellow agents to use as referrals on other islands.) Kauai has the distinction of having something for everyone. It is a hiker's challenge, a sun bather's delight, a golfer's dream, and a surfer's paradise. My local expertise and professional experience will benefit you whether you are serious about buying or selling a home at the time, or you are returning to check out continued real estate opportunities on the Garden Isle.

I think that the community of new friends we have made here is filled with interesting, risk-taking people since it is not easy to pack up and re-locate in the middle of the ocean leaving old friends and family behind. Believe me, your friends and family will come to see you if you move here.

The waterfalls, the waves, the sunrises through the clouds, and the sunsets over Bali Hai never grow old. I do love Kauai and its beauty. I promised myself that I would never take it for granted.

Mahalo, Joe Williams RA

Joe Williams was always there when needed. He treated this transaction with care as if it was his own. I would recommend  Joe to my friends. My overall rank of the quality of service is excellent.

Thanks! Wow, as usual you were terrific. From the first rate listing of our place, to the marvelous ride to the airport (accompanied by a delicious dinner at Coconuts), and everything in between, we were so spoiled. Thousands of thanks.
You are the best! Craig and Linda

The service was terrific. What was the best? Our agent, Joe Williams.

We met Joe in 2005 at an open house on our 2nd visit to Kauai. At that time Princeville prices were out of our reach, but Joe stuck with us - keeping us updated on the changing market and always on the prowl for "super-deals" that might suit us. In the past 6 years we have exchanged hundreds of emails, and very nearly made it to the closing table on multiple occasions, only to have the deals fall through due to various buyer apprehensions and property issues. But Joe continued to stick with us.
By any reasonable measure, Joe would have been well advised (and I'm sure he got this advice) to fire us as clients. But the two words that described Joe best throughout all these years were: "patience" and "perseverance" (along with complete honesty, professionalism and, at times, blunt feedback that we desperately needed). We are very happy to say that we purchased a foreclosed condo (which again nearly fell apart very near closing - but held together with Joe's calm counseling and steering). The place needed a full update, which Joe and Ann helped us with by providing their ideas, contacts and even checking up on the place as it came together.
We were truly happy to have Joe and Ann as our first dinner guests in our new place when it was finished, and we look forward to many more years of friendship.
The staff  was also very helpful throughout the various aspects of our transaction which for us took place entirely remotely. But again, Joe was the guiding force, making sure all the pieces fit together and most importantly, stayed together, through closing.

I was very pleased and impressed with the service I received from my agent Joe Williams.1 recently closed on my first property on Kauai. Throughout the entire process, Joe was an outstanding agent.
I met Joe by chance at an open house during a visit to Kauai in May 2004.1 really appreciated his friendly and professional style. I decided to go with Joe. Although I made no purchase during my visit in May, Joe was professional and understanding, without being too pushy, which is exactly what I was looking for in a Real Estate Agent. His enthusiasm, organization, and knowledge assisted me later in my final decision. What was most impressive was his patience and availability. He carefully explained all the procedures and details I needed to be aware of, and he was always very prompt in returning my calls. Joe and the staff  were great about sending me whatever material I needed to assist in the close. And Joe has continued to be an excellent resource even after the closing. He really has gone above and beyond what I would have expected from an agent, and I am very grateful for all his guidance and help!
My purchase in Princeville is the first of what I hope to be other acquisitions on my idyllic view of paradise. I have long desired to live on Kauai. I am very comforted by the fact that I have found a trusted and reliable agency to help with my real estate needs on Kauai.
Thank you!  

Joe Williams did an excellent job in selling our condominium. He gave full attention to optimizing the appearance of our unit (since we were on the mainland), holding open houses and marketing our place with other Kauai agents. Joe kept us well informed regarding progress of the sale from start to finish!
Jane and Kent

Two years later, we still consider it our good fortune to have met Joe Williams at an open house. Without his real estate experience and his working expertly and quickly on our behalf, we absolutely would not have secured the property we'd fallen in love with. He represented us in the truest sense of the word. We found Joe trustworthy and competent, and he made the process fun! We call him "our" Realtor®. What more can one say!
Jerri and Dan
