In business on beautiful Kauai for more than 30 years, Bali Hai Realty, Inc. provides a strong sense of care and connection when it comes to Kauai real estate and Kauai vacation rentals. Employing a seasoned staff of local residents, Bali Hai Realty has a long track record of bringing excellent teamwork and a sense of ohana (family) to their clientele. President and founder, John Ferry says, “I wake up in the morning thinking about my ‘family’ of employees and the sense of family they bring to our customers. I have 25 good people on staff who’ve been here a long time. We extend that sense of family to our customers … they feel connected to us.” John Ferry opened Bali Hai Realty in 1978. In 2000, Bali Hai joined the internationally respected Coldwell Banker family as an independently owned franchise to provide even better services to their clientele.
