Get to know Richard T. Dolbeare

Hawaii consists of 4 major islands, Kauai, Oahu, Maui, and the Big Island.  Of these, Richard Dolbeare lives and works on two of them, Kauai and Maui.  He owns homes on both and is active in real estate sales on both.

Richard is a Hawaii real estate broker with Keller Williams Realty, the largest real estate franchise in the nation.  This is a benefit to his Hawaii clients because of the stream of buyers referred to him by mainland Keller Williams agents with clients interested in Hawaii real estate.  He has been a full-time Hawaii real estate agent since 2004 and an engineering manager for a Fortune 500 company before that.

Richard is the author of a Hawaii real estate blog, Hawaii Real Estate Information Resource, which ranks within the top 5 in the entire state.  He also authors popular web pages for a huge number of communities and condominiums.  His Kauai community reviews and Maui community reviews include videos, descriptions, and sales data throughout the two islands.  This allows buyers to review communities from the comfort of their current home, something especially important for those living on the mainland.  Extensive information on moving to Hawaii, buying & selling Hawaii real estate, building requirements, local travel, economic trends, Hawaii taxes, and more is available at his websites, KauaiRocks.com and MauiSandCastles.com.

Richard's huge internet presence has garnered the attention of Google which ranks him high in Hawaii real estate search results, typically on the first page and often in the coveted #1 spot.  This is especially important for gaining broad exposure for his listings.

Richard lives, works, and plays on the islands of Kauai and Maui.  He is available by phone, text, email, or personal appointment.

Richard T. Dolbeare Testimonials

  • Bruce & Rose in Japan

    Thanks for all your help. We'll be in touch for all of our future real estate needs. Aloha & Mahalo

  • J.D.

    Aloha Richard. It gives me great pleasure to personally thank you for your great dedication and service you provided in helping me in the sale of my home and lots during a very severe downturn in the real estate market. I will be pleased to recommend you to my family and friends.

  • John & Ruth from Pennsylvania

    Richard was extremely patient and assisted us over a period of two years. I couldn't ask for a better representative.

  • Ben & Jennifer on Kauai

    I have purchased homes in multiple states and worked with multiple realtors. All I can say is Richard Dolbeare is one of the best. Professional, timely, and an expert in all things related to real estate. Every question my family and I asked was answered quickly and thoroughly. Every concern that came up was explained and assessed in a manner that made us confident we were making good choices every step of the way. In a show of his devotion to his clients, not his commission, Richard saved us from making a costly purchasing mistake on a more expensive home than the one we ended up with. Richard is the embodiment of real estate professionalism. I would highly recommend him to anyone thinking of making any real estate transaction. Above that, we plan on using Richard for our next deal. Mahalo Richard!

  • Chris, Rami, Kylie (A.K.A. "Squirt")
