Get to know John Petrella
Aloha, My name is John Petrella. I am an Accredited Buyer's Representative (ABR®), Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource (SFR), a Graduate of the Realtor Institute (GRI) and a full time licensed BROKER REALTOR® in the State of Hawaii. My Hawaii License number is RB-18892. Prior to my career in Real Estate, I managed and taught on the East Coast of the United States for over 20 years in a engineering research and teaching facility for a major university in down town Washington DC. For summer fun I worked at NASA/GSFC on remote sensing projects, and participated in field studies in Oklahoma, Alabama and Maryland. Before my engineering career at the university, I served several years in the USAF as a technician. While in the USAF, I was stationed in Alaska (6 miles above the Arctic Circle!), Alabama, Arkansas, Montana, Mississippi, Texas, Germany and Korea. I know first hand what it is like to move to the Big Island, buy land and then build a home. I am so very happy to call the Big Island home!
Contact my Brokerage with your Real Estate needs and let me put the Professional REALTORS® at Local Hawaii Real Estate to work for you!
We represent our Clients with Honesty, Integrity and Commitment.

Our Local Hawaii Real Estate Logo is two geckos. Hawaii legend has it that when a person needed advice on important matters that they took a walk in the forest and visited a giant lizzard like creature for its advice. This guardian or protector is called aumakua in Hawaiian. By Hawaii Law, it is our job to protect the public from fraud in a Real Estate Transaction.
We use two geckos in our Local Hawaii Real Estate logo because two is the minimum amount of people that is needed in any Real Estate transaction. A buyer and a seller.
