Johnny is The Major at Waikoloa for a reason - he is exceptional at mastering the sale of dreams. What inspires me most about living in Hawaii is what I do everyday; working with professionals like Johnny and making dreams come true with smart real estate purchases. From 'Ohana to sunsets, Hawaii is just that special.

I met Johnny paddling in a 6-man outrigger canoe, man that was fast water! I love working on his team - Johnny's busy closing deals, meeting new people & winning awards. We have a great time thinking outside the box when it comes to selling real estate. It's not just about marketing properties, it's a lifestyle - Hawaii has it all #beautifulsunsets.

Waking Up
On a vacation to Hawaii’s Kohala Coast, Johnny found the place he’d been dreaming of. There was an instant connection to the people, culture and abundance of palm trees! He was in paradise.

Today, Johnny is still amazed that he lives in this idyllic setting. ““I wake up every morning, hop in my outrigger canoe and paddle along the coast.  I never imagined this could be possible, but I also never gave up the dream.  Live YOUR dreams in Hawaii today- I am and so can you.”

Achieve the Dream
Johnny didn’t start out having everything he wanted under the sun. Even as a child, he knew it would take hard work and dedication to make his dream a reality. After earning a bachelor’s degree, Johnny set out to exceed his own expectations and followed it up with a master’s. This laid the groundwork for his entrepreneurial spirit and drive.

While founding and operating one of the largest family-owned asphalt milling companies in California was an accomplishment to be sure, Johnny’s dream still drove him. So, relying on his savvy business skills, he sold the company and achieved the dream of a lifetime – living under palm trees. And Johnny’s never looked back since.

Reach for It
This ability to turn dreams into reality became the foundation of Johnny’s career in real estate. He saw a chance to use his business expertise and passion for paradise to help other professionals and families achieve their own dreams of success. Whether they’re buying or selling, Johnny is focused on his clients’ goals and determined to deliver the results they deserve.

If you’re looking to move to the Kohala Coast or sell your current home for maximum profit, contact Johnny today. He’s a professional who sold his business and moved his family to an entirely new area in order to give them a better life. When it comes to your needs, he covers every detail and creates a strategy that will make the process smooth and seamless.

Happy Clients!

For at least a year we had observed Johnny McElree consistently holding 6-day/week open houses in our resort condominium complex. The people he showed around our complex all seemed to enjoy Johnny’s company, and we sometimes overheard him sharing his wealth of knowledge of resort properties, and of Hawaii and all that it has to offer. When we decided to sell our condominium, we did not hesitate to list with Johnny. Our decision was a good one.

Happy Clients!Bonnie and Jim Wallman
Great Job Johnny!

I decided to sell our property in a down market and we interviewed several brokers. I chose Johnny because he was recommended by a fellow professional and because he appeared at our interview well prepared with market conditions and facts. What we did not know, then, was that we were becoming acquainted with a man who was about to become a dynamic team member on our side. A man who has, not only the facts, but honesty and perseverance.

Great Job Johnny!Happy Customer at Kolea
