Clark Realty-Locations sells to Coldwell Banker Island Properties

The real estate world on the Big Island continues to consolidate and my firm Clark Realty is in the middle of the shuffle as well as us agents associated with the firm.

Locations, who bought the firm from the founding family of Putty Clark a year or so ago was re-sold to Coldwell Banker Island Properties we were informed today. The same firm purchased Coldwell Banker Maryl Realty several years ago, so I am assuming we will consolidate with their agents. Our firm is the largest by sales volume on the island with 4 offices. I would assume little will change other than our president Frank Goodale announced he was retiring-we will all miss him! Frank is a straight up guy with business ethics at the forefront of all decisions I’ve observed. I’m a “rules” guy myself amongst a sea of shifting ethics at times that can be challenging. All the best Frank-thank you for the guidance and support over the years!!

This is part of Frank’s email today to us agents and staff:

It is also my privilege and pleasure to announce that Locations and Coldwell Banker Island Properties have reached an agreement to transfer the operations of Clark Realty to Coldwell Banker Island Properties under the very capable ownership and leadership of Steve Houle.
