Greg Poppy’s passion for helping people, his vast knowledge of properties available on Maui and his love for Hawaiian history make him a standout realtor. After serving four years in the U.S. Air Force, Greg met his wife, Jennifer and they were married in 2003. He began his college career shortly after and graduated with a 3.9 G.P.A. with a Bachelor of History. Their family grew overnight as they adopted their oldest son, then had their second son in 2008. In 2012, Greg and Jennifer felt like it was time to take a leap of faith and they moved their family of four to the island of Maui. Through his journey of making Maui “home”, he and his family have lived on different parts of the island, giving him first-hand knowledge about the benefits of each area.
Greg has served the Maui community in various roles over the years, some of which include as co-founder of Pray Hawaii (a ministry in which needs of the islands are shared via social media), as PTA President of a local school and currently, he is investing his time in the Hawaii education system as a Hawaiian History teacher at a local public school. In his free time, Greg enjoys playing boardgames and body boarding with his children, watching sunsets with his wife and cheering for his favorite football team.
Clients who work with Greg will find his attention to detail, his prompt responses, his care for their wants and his knowledge of the Maui real estate market to be comforting during the home buying and selling process. He obtained his Hawaii State realtor license in 2013 and has a perfect 5-star Zillow rating from his clients, with over $6.5 million in sales. In 2017 he joined the prestigious Wailea Realty Corp. brokerage, and looks forward to continuing his journey on Maui with them.

“Greg helped me selling and buying my house. He works for his clients not for himself not for commission. He is someone you can trust. He helped selling my house from July 2014 to July 2015. He never get frustrated nor pushed me to cut the price significantly for his commission. Instead he waited with me until right buyer showed up. When I bought this house that I recently moved in, he helped me in the same professional manner. He is someone you can trust.”
“Greg was the realtor that contacted me when I requested information on a condo in Kihei. From that first call, Greg was friendly, informative and very easy to communicate with. My husband and I live in Connecticut, and buying a second home in Maui was a complicated and, at times, overwhelming experience. Greg was with us every step of the way with guidance and expertise. I had so many questions about the properties, the process and the things I needed to have in place to become the owner of a Hawaiian property. Greg was so responsive when questions or concerns arose. He always responded quickly to calls, texts or emails and was very accommodating about communicating with us when it was convenient to Eastern Standard Time (which runs 6 hours ahead of HST). I knew from my first conversation with Greg that he was a realtor who would provide first class service and also gave me an immediate feeling that he was a realtor that I could whole-heartedly trust. I am now an owner of my own piece of paradise on the beautiful island of Maui. I would not hesitate to recommend Greg to anyone who is in the market for a new home. He is friendly, trustworthy, intelligent and very knowledgeable. Mahalo, Greg Poppy.”
“Greg is a true professional in his industry. He is very conscientious and puts his clients' interests always at the forefront. We were able to give him our preferences and desires on properties and he diligently found a nice shortlist to and consider. He was extremely helpful during the negotiation process and always available during the closing process. I highly recommend Greg's services.”
“Being a busy professional and parent, finding and buying a new home is no easy task. Enter Greg Poppy, a true Real Estate Professional with a fun, fresh persona. Greg guided this first time home buyer through each step of the process and when things got overwhelming, he provided the reassurance needed in order to complete the process. Greg found us our dream home and in the end, made it fun!”
“When you are a first time home buyer the whole process is like moving to a country where you don't speak their language. Luckily Greg was there to translate, ensuring we understood each step. He interpreted our needs and helped us buy our first home.”
“Greg went above and beyond our expectations representing us as our buyers agent! When we had difficulties with the title company and clearing the items on the title report he worked hard and was able to get those items removed. If there was something Greg didn't have an answer to a question he would get it as quickly as possible. Greg definitely knows the market in Maui. As your agent Greg will look out for your best interest if he represents you as a buyer or seller!”
“As a retired Realtor of 22 years, I feel extremely qualified to give absolutely top ratings to Greg Poppy. It is always more difficult for a buyer to be nowhere near the property they are buying. We made our offer while on Maui and it was accepted after a bit of negotiation. Other than the structural inspection we were not again on Maui until a couple of days prior to our final walk-thru. Greg has been in close contact with us from the first day we met him at an open house. He has a great affinity for attention to detail. He never felt his job was over even after the property closed and another problem arose that needed negotiation with finesse. There is not a doubt that we would definitely recommend Greg Poppy to anyone wanting to purchase property on Maui. With Greg you will definitely know you have a new friend.”
