Donna Duryea is a true embodiment of the Aloha spirit, having been born and raised in the vibrant city of Honolulu and residing in the picturesque town of Hilo for the past 20 years. Her deep-rooted connection to the islands and her passion for real estate have made her one of the most successful and respected real estate professionals on the islands.
As a 6-time top 100 seller on the islands, Donna's experience speaks for itself. She has represented buyers and sellers from a widely diverse spectrum, and she relishes each personal connection that she makes. Her keen ability to understand the unique needs and goals of her clients has resulted in a remarkable portfolio of transactions, which exceeds 266 million in sales and 793 closed deals as of 2022.
Growing up in Honolulu, first in the Niu Valley and then in the Nu'uanu Valley, Donna spent her childhood surrounded by the natural beauty of the islands. She attended high school at the University Lab School on the campus of University of Hawaii, where she developed a love for hiking, surfing and spending time on some of her favorite beaches such as Sandy's and Makapu'u.
After her Sophomore year in college, Donna headed for Colorado and spent 31 years living on the mainland, with stints in Aspen, NYC, and Bozeman. But the pull of home was always strong, and in January 2001, the family moved back to Hawaii and settled in Hilo, where her love for real estate bloomed.
For Donna, the most rewarding aspect of her career is the opportunity to help people fulfill their real estate aspirations. Whether it's locals looking for a new home, or mainlanders looking for their own slice of paradise in Hawaii, she prizes learning the unique stories of each client and working tirelessly to make their dreams come true.
