Leo Sells Hawaii
Elite Pacific Properties
Leo Dodier brings one of the most comprehensive real estate backgrounds as a Certified Luxury Agent to his work with Elite Pacific Properties. Leo’s commitment to his clients is exemplified through the numerous skills and certifications he has earned over his 25+ year career. His skill set includes luxury property sales, appraising, property renovation, mortgage lending, property management, and acquisition/development of residential and commercial investment properties.
Few brokers or agents can match Leo’s commitment and ability to assist his clients through an array of avenues. Whether you are in search of a broker, appraiser, or expert negotiator, Leo leverages his numerous certifications to assist his clients. His exemplary commitment to comprehensive service is not only shown through his work but also through his personal life. In 15 years, Leo has been on 6 mission trips to Haiti, Honduras, Nicaragua, Colombia, and San Francisco’s Tenderloin Area. In particular, he assisted in rebuilding communities after Haiti’s earthquake, providing spiritual and emotional support with the BGEA (Billy Graham Evangelistic Association).
Leo’s start in real estate took place in the Palm Beach Florida market as an appraiser and broker. Consider that fewer than 1% of all appraisers nationwide have earned such a designation and even fewer brokers pair brokerage services with the esteemed SRA (Senior Residential Appraiser) certification. As an appraiser, Leo is able to clearly understand how to price a home and earn the highest price point for his clients in the most expeditious manner possible.
To take that a step further, Leo is also able to work on his client’s behalf with the lender’s appraiser. This combination of broker and appraiser allows Leo to work with and understand the lender’s appraiser in a way that is not possible for non-appraiser agents.
Among Leo’s standout record as an appraiser and broker is his oversight and management of the development of the 140-acre Boston Hill Project where he was responsible for zoning, platting, and infrastructure projects leading to the sale of large parcels of single-family homes and retail shopping/commercial sites.
To put it simply, Leo cares very much about the people he works with, his career, and the experience and skills he can use to assist his clients. His commitment to a life of service permeates every client interaction. He is a father of two grown children and an 11-year old chocolate lab. Today, the Big Island is the home base for his interests as an avid cyclist, hiking, scuba diving, private pilot and as a car enthusiast having been an active member of the Porsche Club of America since 1998.
Bottom line, whether you are a first-time homebuyer, a luxury property buyer/seller, or a seasoned investor, you can be assured that with Leo you have access to an unparalleled level of expertise, service, and knowledge.
