Stephen Koehne, Realtor®
My name is Stephen “Steph” Koehne. Born and raised on the North Shore of Kaua’i as the oldest son of three boys, the island lifestyle was an everyday agenda whether it was surfing, fishing, diving, or just playing in the sand with my brothers. My mother, a junior Olympic swimmer originally from Maryland, and my father, an islander from Honolulu, made sure that it became standard for us to function adaptively on the shores of Kauaʻi. Eventually, I developed a strong passion and the will to succeed in the ocean that lead to an illustrious professional surfing career and a lifelong obsession with the sea.
Naturally, that created my other love for deep-sea fishing. Starting out on my jet ski, I eventually got my captain’s license and bought my first boat shortly after with money I made surfing, further evolving my life around what the ocean has to offer. Mainly in the summer months when pelagic species like Ahi, Ono, and Mahi-mahi gather around the islandʻs waters, I put my surfboards away and bust out my rods and reels. There is nothing I love more than to surf the giant swells that collide with our shores in our winters and captain my own personal vessel along our epic coastlines in our summers. These are passions of mine that I have spent a lifetime aspiring to be great at!
As a father of a little son and daughter, I always tell new friends and visitors that I am not only from Kaua’i, I am Kaua’i! Essentially, people like myself make up the DNA and the fabric of this Island and I am happy to share what I know with guests and to help provide them with some local guidance and just about anything they need whether just visiting or moving to Kaua’i. My knowledge of Kaua’i is unparalleled. I have connections and great relationships when it comes to local vendors, contractors, landscapers, restaurants, adventure guides, private chefs, massage therapists, and much more.
Please allow me the opportunity to share my understanding, my love for Kaua’i, and my personalized service with you in your next real estate transaction. With anything I do, I believe in doing it to the best of my ability or not doing it at all, and quality service always leaves a lasting impression while poor service no one ever forgets. I believe this is integral in any business, but especially in real estate. I pride myself on having great relationships and trust within the community and with clients.
