About Mike Drutar

2019 REALTOR of the Year
With 830 members to choose from, it truly was an honor to have been chosen by my peers as the 2019 REALTOR of the Year for the West Hawaii Association of REALTORS. 
My Philosophy
I believe that a successful agent must work to provide their client with all of the information needed to make a sound decision. With that in mind, I strive to navigate my clients through all of the nuances of the Hawaii real estate market, with a focus on my clients long term goals. I have found nothing as rewarding as working with someone to find their perfect property, or perfect buyer. For some people it's a first time home purchase. For others, buying in Hawaii is a realization of a life long goal. And for some, selling real estate in Hawaii will help earn a profit on a sale. Each client is unique and that makes each transaction unique. I'd like to put my passion to work for you.

For my personal business, my philosophy is simple; focus on providing the highest level of service possible while maintaining an ethical approach, and everything else will fall into place.  I don't have to focus on short term goals, or commissions.  With this I have built and I continue to expand a strong referral base and clients for life who have worked with me multiple times.
Giving Back
I believe in giving back to my local community and my real estate community.

I also serve in the community: Finish Line Director for the Ironman World Championships 2018-present (the best finish line in sports!),  Board of Directors for People for Active Transportation Hawaii (PATH) 2015-present, volunteer with numerous other athletic endeavors on the island, and my wonderful wife and I lead a community Cycling/Social group with over 300 members.  

In my free time Living on the Big Island has been more exciting and rewarding than I ever expected.  My wife and I love to enjoy all that the island has to offer.  We're both athletic, and we love hiking, biking, swimming (me), running (her), and socializing!  This path of athletics even led me to do something I never thought possible by being a finisher at the 2013 Ironman World Championships here in Kona.  I've also caught the shutterbug, and love taking photos.  I've been known to send larger prints to my buyers as a welcome to Hawaii gift!
