About Hawaii Luxury Listings, LLC

Aloha vibes and excellent client relationships are the keys to success for Hawaii Luxury Listings, LLC. Located on the extraordinary Kohala Coast on the Big Island of Hawaii, Hawaii Luxury Listings was established in 2012 by Principal Broker Johnny Mac McElree, whose honesty and forthright style have earned him the respect of both his elite clientele and fellow agents and brokers on the island. He is joined by two agents who also embody Hawaii Luxury Listings’ core spirit of aloha and integrity, Chad Weigle (R(S)) and Peter Berezeny (R(S)). Utilizing a smart mix of the new (social media marketing tools) and the old (traditional open houses), Hawaii Luxury Listings is uniquely positioned to attract the most discerning Buyers, and features listings that are unparalleled along the coast.

The Kohala Coast consists of 5 main luxury resort areas- Waikoloa Beach, Mauna Lani, Puako, Mauna Kea, and Hualalai/Kukio. This stretch of coastline offers pristine beaches that are great for both relaxation and all types of ocean sports, along with world-class dining and entertainment, luxury shopping, and numerous championship golf courses. Spectacular sunsets and spouting whales are the norm here, along with the aloha lifestyle that makes Hawai’i so unique. Hawaii Luxury Listings has both the properties and the connections along this expanse of paradise to help you find the luxury property that you have been dreaming of.

Unarguably, one of the crown jewels of the Kohala Coast is Kolea, an upscale development located within the Waikoloa Beach Resort. Hawaii Luxury Listings is the prominent brokerage specializing in this development, and offers a range of luxury properties here. Kolea consists of both luxury condominiums and homes, built to exacting standards with exquisite finishes. Located on the shores of Anaeho’omalu Bay, Kolea is the only development on the Kohala Coast to offer direct beach access, with a gated path connecting the Kolea Beach Club to the beach. An infinity pool, exercise room, lava rock spa, sandy bottomed kids pool, entertaining areas, and guest hales are all located at the Beach Club. Hawaii Luxury Listings is the expert on not only Kolea, but the entire Kohala Coast, and we are happy to assist you with obtaining the luxury lifestyle that you are searching for here on the Big Island.

Founder and Principal Broker, Johnny Mac McElree, (R)B

“I wake up every morning, hop in my outrigger canoe and paddle along the coast.  I never imagined this could be possible, but I also never gave up the dream.”  Awarded as one of Hawaii Business Magazine’s TOP 100 Realtors.  Director on the West Hawaii Board of Realtors.  And awarded for our Best Advertising program.  “Live your dreams in Hawaii. I am and so can you.”

Waking Up On a vacation to Hawaii’s Kohala Coast, Johnny found the place he’d been dreaming of. There was an instant connection to the people, culture and abundance of palm trees! He was in paradise. Today, Johnny is still amazed that he lives in this idyllic setting. ““I wake up every morning, hop in my outrigger canoe and paddle along the coast.  I never imagined this could be possible, but I also never gave up the dream.  Live YOUR dreams in Hawaii today- I am and so can you.”

Achieve the Dream Johnny didn’t start out having everything he wanted under the sun. Even as a child, he knew it would take hard work and dedication to make his dream a reality. After earning a bachelor’s degree, Johnny set out to exceed his own expectations and followed it up with a master’s. This laid the groundwork for his entrepreneurial spirit and drive. While founding and operating one of the largest family-owned asphalt milling companies in California was an accomplishment to be sure, Johnny’s dream still drove him. So, relying on his savvy business skills, he sold the company and achieved the dream of a lifetime – living under palm trees. And Johnny’s never looked back since.

Reach for It This ability to turn dreams into reality became the foundation of Johnny’s career in real estate. He saw a chance to use his business expertise and passion for paradise to help other professionals and families achieve their own dreams of success. Whether they’re buying or selling, Johnny is focused on his clients’ goals and determined to deliver the results they deserve. If you’re looking to move to the Kohala Coast or sell your current home for maximum profit, contact Johnny today. He’s a professional who sold his business and moved his family to an entirely new area in order to give them a better life. When it comes to your needs, he covers every detail and creates a strategy that will make the process smooth and seamless.

Chad Weigle, Realtor

Johnny is the Mayor at Waikoloa for a reason – he is exceptional at mastering the sale of dreams. What inspires me most about living in Hawaii is what I do everyday; working with professionals like Johnny and making dreams come true with smart real estate purchases. From ‘Ohana to sunsets, Hawaii is just that special.

Chad came to Hawaii on vacation 20 years ago, and never left. “Once I arrived, I thought, “Why would I live anywhere else than this spot?” I have been here ever since.”

A father of three, Chad appreciates the sense of “ohana” that is found here on the Big Island.  “I love the family atmosphere and how everyone takes care of each other. What a great place to raise a family!”  Another factor that Chad considers a major plus to island life can be summed up in one word- “The WEATHER! It’s always great!”  Chad, his wife Holly, and their extended family take advantage of this whenever they can. “My favorite memories on the Big Island include our many holiday hikes- we love to find new spots to check out.”

Real estate was not always in Chad’s plans, but after taking a class and talking with Hawai’i Luxury Listings founder and principal broker, Johnny McElree, Chad realized that he too was motivated to help others find their dream homes on the Kohala Coast.  “Johnny has helped many people make their dreams to live in Hawai’i come true, and it is my goal to do the same”.

Chad and Johnny met when Johnny came to the Big Island on vacation, and decided to live his own dreams here- much as Chad did 20 years ago.

“I am very pleased to welcome Chad into the Hawaii Luxury Listings ohana,” says Johnny.  “He exhibits every day what we stand for here at Hawaii Luxury Listings; integrity, a strong work ethic, and the ability to listen to what our clients are saying and help them realize their goals. Very importantly, Chad has a great deal of aloha, which shines through when he interacts with clients and colleagues. I am certain that he is a valuable addition to our organization, and will contribute greatly to our success in the future”.
