The Kauai County Council unanimously approved Mayor Bernard Carvalho’s appointment of Donna Apisa to the Planning Commission on December 14, 2016.
Donna’s personal motto is “Attitude is Everything” and approaches her life and her business with a positive attitude and makes it her goal to find win-win solutions for all concerned.
Now the Principal Broker and CEO of Oceanfront Sotheby’s International Realty, Apisa began her Hawaii real estate career in 1979 and went on to obtain her Broker’s license in 1981. She formed Oceanfront Realty International, Inc in May of 1985 and launched Oceanfront Sotheby’s International Realty in June, 2016 after merging with both Sleeping Giant Sotheby’s International Realty and O’Connor Realty LLC. In both 2015 and 2016, her businesses have been named by the Pacific Business News in the “Fastest 50” growing small businesses in the State of Hawaii.
Donna is a firm believer in the importance of giving back and has been heavily involved in many organizations in Hawaii, such as the Kauai YWCA, Malama Pono and numerous Community Associations.
