Interview with Dodie MacArthur



We’re on the Big Island of Hawaiʻi, 2,200 miles from the closest landmass. What used to be truly isolated is now connected virtually to everything and anything.


The Big Island is so special because we can live and enjoy life by the ocean or the mountains; either by ourselves tucked away, or in wonderful communities with great history and culture.



MacArthur Sotheby’s International Realty began in 1989. We started wanting to make sure our clients weren’t just satisfied, but truly felt their choices had and have enriched their lives. Hawaiʻi is a very special place and the opportunity to live here whether full-time or part-time only happens once in a lifetime. We think our clients deserve this opportunity and helping them make the right choice is what we do.


Our big “WHY?” is really about serving our clients when they are buying and selling, and we offer the very best technology, marketing, negotiating skills and expertise to get our clients’ properties sold around the world.



Are we on top of the market? We drive the market… So, if someone walks into our office tomorrow and have no idea where? why? how? We interview them. We want to know about them, and we want to make their dream a reality. This page is about the journey, about us, but it should be called… “About YOU”!


Sotheby’s International Realty (SIR) really works for our clients – they become a part of our larger family. Wherever our clients are, we make sure they have the same experience across the world. When marketing their property, our entire SIR family world-wide is, too.
