Neal Genge is a Real Estate salesperson licensed in Hawaii. He is excited to be working for the very first United Country Real estate office in the Hawaiian Islands. Working under his wife, Teena as the Principle Broker for Hawaii Lifestyle Properties, this Husband/Wife team is always striving to meet the clients needs.
Originally from Wisconsin, he has made his dream of living and experiencing the Hawaii lifestyle come true. Neal and Teena have now settled on a 11 acre orchard and ranch in the small town of Naalehu, HI located at the beautiful Southpoint area in the Kau District. As an electrical engineer for over 30 years in southern Oregon, Neal has also been intrigued by land development and construction. Over the years, he has designed and built 2 homes starting with undeveloped land. He did all design and construction, including heavy equipment operation, plumbing, electrical, structural, etc. Owning a large tract of forestland in southern Oregon, he also operated a small sawmill operation where he custom cut Douglas Fir, Ponderosa Pine, Incense Cedar and other species. Being able to dry and machine lumber products, he marketed tongue and groove products along with specialty items customers could not find in big box stores.
By 2015, his desire to get to Hawaii led him to learning and researching everything about Hawaii - particularly Hawaii Island. Starting off small, he decided to develop rough land in Hawaii. He "got his feet wet" by developing several properties while still in Oregon before finally making the move to the Island.
Neal's knowledge of Hawaii Island gives him a unique perspective to help clients find the right property - in the right location. Neal is a licensed drone operator and he will promote your listing with beautiful aerial images along with 360° virtual tours. Neals problem solving ability and negotiating skills ensures buyers and sellers both win. His technical and hands on knowledge gives him an upper hand in understanding what is really considered "good bones" in the real estate world. He can see a house and see potential... or see the issues that make it a money pit versus a good investment. He's all about hard work and you'll see it in every step of the home buying or selling process.
Teena is a Principle Broker licensed in Hawaii and Oregon. She is very excited to be managing the only United Country real estate office in the Hawaiian Islands. She works together with her husband, Neal Genge. He is a salesperson and a great support to their real estate business. Their diversity and different personalities work well complimenting each other and that extends down to meeting the needs of their clients. Neal does all the drone videos and 360 video tours to market properties. It could be said they have both beauty and brains!
Originally from Oregon, Teena loved the summers but disliked the cold cold winters. She loved the ocean so the thrill of living in the warmth and seeing the ocean every day brings her much contentment and happiness. Teena and Neal are farming a 11 acre ranch outside of the small town of Naalehu, HI located down in the Southpoint area in the Kau District. In southern Oregon, Teena worked managing properties and gained the skills of good investments and what is really considered "good bones" in the real estate world. She can see a house and see potential or see so many of the issues that make it a money pit verses a good investment. In the past Teena has been involved in the hard work of fixing up properties. Teena while single, purchased a home in 2016 and went thru the process of remodeling it. Much of the work she did herself because of all she learned while working with her ex husband in the construction industry. In just a short period of time she was able to sell and use the proceeds to help buy their home in Hawaii. She's all about hard work and you'll see it in every step of the home buying or selling process.
Teena is all about people. Her happiness comes from caring about other people. She devotes much of her time to assist ones who are deaf and challenged. She gives of herself without pay to manage and represent these beautiful souls who can't stand up for themselves. In 2019 Teena fought for guardianship of a young 25 year old deaf man who needed someone to advocate for him and teach him about life. She had been helping him since he was 10 but circumstances changed and he needed someone to speak up for him and she willingly did this and is blessed to have him in her life sharing the experience of Hawaii. You will often seen him waving at all the locals at farmers market.
With all the years of supporting experience in construction and customer care, Teena brings her enthusiasm and attention to detail in to every transaction. Fluent in Dactylology (sign language), Teena is all about communication and her clients love it! Buying or Selling a home is a huge commitment, and Teena is steady and sure in making sure everyone has a comfortable, knowledgeable, and successful experience. If you're the type of person who wants the facts, Teena's careful calculations will leave you certain you've "found the one."
