Richard Kirwin Johnson brings a fresh, enthusiastic and passionate approach to both selling property and tirelessly searching for the perfect slice of paradise for those seeking to make their home here on the beautiful island of Hawaii.

Richard understands the importance of listening to the needs of diverse clientele and is driven to go the extra mile to ensure the ultimate satisfaction of his clients.

Richard spent his childhood summers working on his family’s 120-acre vineyard in the Central Valley of California. Family celebrations, harvesting grapes and working “the ranch” are memories he holds close with a deep appreciation for generosity of the land and life’s simple pleasures. Richard’s passion for wine, travel abroad, diversity of culture and people were fulfilled by a successful thirty-year sales career in the competitive wholesale wine and spirits business. Obtaining his California real estate license in 2015, he transitioned into property management for an exclusive clientele in Sausalito where he and his wife resided. It was during this period that he also fine-tuned his design skills while working with a home improvement landscape/hardscape firm.

Richard spends his spare time crafting works of art with his hands—whether at his workbench, while building a new home, by taking on a major remodeling project, or designing artisan stone and brick pathways, outdoor living spaces or lush gardens. If he envisions it, he can create it.

Fulfilling a promise he made to his wife to return to Hawaii (Leslie grew up on the island of Oahu), they have made their permanent home in Hawi in the North Kohala district of the Big Island, where—when not showing property—he can, of course, be found in the garden or building a greenhouse!

Richard’s professional and personal experiences have created a strong foundation for his success as a real estate agent in Hawaii.

His strengths: focused, knowledge-based sales and negotiation skills; excellent communication skills; a keen ability to understand another person’s vision; and a talent for recognizing value in a property by evaluating its long-term potential.

We met Richard “Rick” about 3 or 4 years ago at his office when my husband & I stopped to just browse through the Real Estate listings while shopping in that area. Very casually we talked and provided him our information. We weren’t serious buyers at that time but had the dream of someday owning here. Rick kept in contact with us a few times of year to keep us informed of a variety of places and locations to keep our dream alive. This also helped us to keep track of the overall Real Estate market to keep us educated of what the current market was doing and if it was up or down. I am a Real Estate Appraiser back on the mainland and this interested me in keeping track of a trending analysis. Even though Rick knew we weren’t quite ready yet (with kids in college) and needed to wait things out, he still kept us informed and never gave up on us. Rick continually goes the extra mile and has a very good eye to attention to detail. When buying we relied on him to view and provide us with all the details he could. He was very efficient and timely in providing us any and all information. My husband & I highly recommend anyone looking for agent to utilize him as your agent!

Best Regards,

Ed & Malinda

Rick Johnson is a highly competent and dedicated realtor who helped us to buy our dream home sight-unseen! He did an amazing job of representing us during the COVID pandemic in a very competitive market. Because we could not travel from the mainland to look at houses, we kept in touch with Rick almost daily. He went to preview houses we were interested in and gave us virtual tours until we found the perfect house. Although there were three full price offers within 24 hours of the listing being posted, Rick worked with us to make our offer competitive. We had a short closing which Rick facilitated by keeping the paper work moving forward by accommodating our schedules, working with a five-hour time difference. When travel restrictions allowed us to travel to Hawaii, we finally got to see our new home. We could not be more pleased. We could not have done it without Rick’s outstand professional services and the trust we had in him.

Richard K Johnson is in our estimation one of the finest Real Estate agents that my husband and I have had the pleasure to work with. Richard is a very intelligent person, a kind person, as well as a genuinely honest person. It's highly unlikely you will find anyone better than him to represent and protect your interest, in any given situation that may arise in your Real Estate Transaction.
