keller williiams logoAloha Realty Group and KW Island Living—a Keller Williams Realty Franchise—will merge.

Lee and Barbara Potts, owners of Aloha Realty Group; Colette Ching, operating principal at of KW Island Living; and Lisa Teichner, principal broker and Team Leader of KW Island Living, have reached terms for a merger of the two companies.

“ARG—Aloha Realty Group—has always been a learning-based company,” said Potts. Competence and confidence are part of our core values. The breadth and depth of training, technology, business systems and models that KW Island Living brings to current and future agents can’t be matched anywhere by anyone.

“Aloha Realty Group’s focus has always been on our community, our clients and our agents,” said Potts. “We always envisioned that our agents would achieve their goals and dreams by providing the best and most knowledgeable service to their clients. We also believed that our group of ARG agents would be the most productive group on Maui. The merger with KWIL ensures that we have the tools and models to make that vision a reality in a much shorter time frame.”

ARG was founded in Lahaina in 2009 during one of the worst real estate cycles in history. From 2009 through 2015, the company grew in size and numbers. In 2015 ARG grew over 50% over 2014 in both number of transactions and sales volume with agents in Lahaina, Kīhei, Ha‘ikū, Wailuku and Kahului.


“We are beyond thrilled to partner with such a wonderful group of people,” Teichner stated. “The culture and core values that Lee and Barbara Potts have created with Aloha Realty Group are in perfect alignment with our own philosophy at KW Island Living. We look forward to continued growth and success for our agents, clients and company.”


The Potts can be contacted at KW Island Living’s NEW Lahaina Branch office (ARG’s former location) at 180 Dickenson St., Ste. 212, in Lahaina, or by calling(808) 344-5008.

The main office is located at 285 W. Ka‘ahumanu Ave., Ste 201, in Kahului.
