Clark Realty Corporation and Prudential Orchid Isle Properties are pleased to announce that Prudential Orchid Isle Properties will be merging with Clark Realty. The transition will begin immediately and be completed by mid-November.
Bob and Syleste Williams, who founded Prudential Orchid Isle Properties in 1988, will remain fully involved in the operations of the Hualalai Street office location in Hilo. Bob will remain the Broker in Charge and will join the Clark Realty management team as a Vice President. Syleste Williams will also take a leadership role with Clark Realty’s Core Services Team. Along with Bob and Syleste, the agents and staff of Prudential Orchid Isle will also transition to Clark Realty, bringing the total number of sales agents and staff to just over 150 island wide.
We are pleased to welcome this highly respected family of real estate professionals into our ohana. Our recent discussions have revealed a shared business philosophy that emphasizes providing exceptional client service, fostering in-depth market knowledge for our agents and handling all transactions with integrity. We anticipate developing a mutually beneficial relationship as we move ahead, not just for us but also for the clients and community we serve.
“Since Syleste and I founded our company 25 years ago, we have developed a strong presence in the East Hawaii market, from Honoka’a to Volcano and in the Puna and Hilo districts,” says Bob Williams, President and Principal Broker of Prudential Orchid Isle Properties. “We are confident that the new relationship we are forging with Clark Realty and their network partners at Leading Real Estate Companies of the World and Luxury Portfolio International will allow us to continue to serve our clients with the same exceptional service that they have come to expect from our team.”
“Collectively, the sales agents and managers of our combined team will offer several centuries of real estate experience,” notes Syleste Williams. “That is unmatched in the Big Island real estate market and will greatly benefit our clients.”
Clark Realty Corporation (CRC) has been the Big Island of Hawaii’s market share leader for general brokerage sales for over two decades. So far in 2013, CRC has seen a total sales volume of well over $200M, a significant increase from 2012. Prudential Orchid Isle Properties has been the proven leader in real estate sales volume in the East Hawaii market and has been the top individual office on the Big Island in units sold for the last five years.
We are excited that the Hilo Orchid Isle team has chosen to merge with us and we look forward to great things ahead.
