The Team

Joseph David Richardson, Broker in Charge

Joseph David Richardson (“Dave”) has been in real estate since 1974. He has been a and Realtor on Hawaii Island for over 25 years. His experience ranges from ownership of his own real estate brokerage in both California and Hawaii, to his active participation in the procuring, development and sales of various real estate projects. His love is the back country ranch land and the very special coastline of his island home.

He raised his three children on island and in his early years, Dave and his kids made a point of traveling down every road that his 4 X 4 truck could traverse. Dave’s knowledge of the island’s hidden locales have earned him a reputation of finding the perfect property for his clients. The more unusual the request, the harder the challenge and the harder he works. Ask any of his clients ­ they will tell you, that looking at property with Dave is always an adventure of discovery.

Dave’s knowledge of the island is comprehensive, and if you have the chance to take a tour of the island with him, do it! You will come away with an understanding of all the various aspects that make up island life, from the 20 + micro climate zones, community plans, schools, shopping, things to do and a whole lot of background on the island’s history and people. If you have a special need or desire a unique property, Dave will do his best to find it for you, whether listed or not.
