“Aloha Maui property owners and buyers –
My wife and I chose to use Dave Futch to represent us in the sale of our Maui property because we know he has been an active Maui based Real Estate agent for approx. 30 years.
Because of his decades of Maui Real Estate experience, positive work ethic and ability to handle complex situations, he was voted the 2016 “Realtor of the Year” by his peers.
We also very much appreciate that he gives back to the community in various ways, including continuing to take a big part in the Waldorf School fundraising events and planning even though now in the 2017-18 school year – his daughter is now in her second year of University.
Dave managed the sale of our property with extreme patience and diligence, despite difficulties involved with our property being occupied by tenants during the time it was listed and being shown, and a rushed escrow, both of which added many challenges. But Dave handled the whole process with finesse, patience and an unflagging positive attitude – and guided all parties to a successful closing on time.”
A local Maui resident since 1988, Dave has developed an extensive knowledge of this beautiful island, it’s diverse climates and topographies, and also of the special types of communities around the island. Pick your lifestyle, and Dave can take you there. Passion for the ocean, Maui and Andrea!
It was the ocean that brought Dave here. Growing up in Florida, he acquired a lifelong passion for surfing. Dave’s travels took him from Miami to Maui, and also introduced him to his future wife, Andrea. “I fell in love with Andrea, then Maui and the rest is history!”
Dave understands Maui home ownership, literally from the ground up.
Dave found his piece of paradise and built his family’s home from the ground up. Dave has always enjoyed carpentry and landscaping. While in college, he explored architecture and technical drawing. He employs these interests when renovating properties and when helping other folks to discover great opportunities. “I delight in helping them to realize their dream of finding a home they can make their own.”
A doting father to beautiful Sabrina, Dave still makes time for active involvement in our Maui community.
Dave and Andrea are the proud parents of Sabrina, who graduated from Haleakala Waldorf School, Seabury Hall and is now graduating from Rhode Island School of Design. Andrea is the lead for Montessori of Maui's Primary age After School Care.
Dave served as a Director on the Haleakala Waldorf School’s Board for 12 years, served on their Building and Grounds Committee, chaired the annual Holiday Faire food committee and chaired the Waldorf High School Committee which is in its fourth year.
He currently serves as a director on the Hawaii Association of Realtors Board, served as Board member of the Realtor Association of Maui, as the Regional Director for the UpCountry area. He is a Board member of the Maui Executives Association, serving as chair of the Membership Committee and Ethics Committees and is Board President of the Hea’aula Owners Association. Additionally, he is a member of the Maui Chamber of Commerce, Maui Arts & Cultural Center and is a supporter of both Hawaii Public Radio and Manao Radio.
A winning, positive approach to everything.
Dave’s still a passionate surfer, and loves kitesurfing, playing golf and sharing his discoveries. Most of all, he enjoys being Andrea’s husband and Sabrina’s dad.
“I have known Dave Futch for many years. I find him to be one of the most highly motivated, creative and enthusiastic individuals I’ve ever had the pleasure to associate with. Whatever task he takes on, he pursues it with all his energy. Dave has a refreshingly personal touch that is hard to find in today’s marketplace. His people skills and sales skills leave everyone involved feeling like a winner.”

“I’ve always been a people person,” Dave acknowledges. “I pride myself on my integrity, hard work and enthusiasm – values my parents gave me. But what I really get a kick out of is making people happy.”
Dave’s Personal Philosophy.
“I honor those individuals who have left a legacy, whether it’s inventing a light bulb or the Theory of Relativity, quantum physics or Velcro. Helping other folks attain the home they’ve always wanted - that’s a pretty good legacy, too.”
