United Country Real Estate announced its expansion to the Hawaiian Islands with a new mobile franchise in Kailua Kona, Hawaii. The new franchise, United Country Real Estate | Hawaii Lifestyle Properties, will provide full real

The franchise is owned by Laura Lunn, an experienced real estate professional based in Henderson, Nev., and will be run by award-winning broker Astrid Armani, which includes the Rising Star award, given to a broker who significantly increases their sales in their first year. Armani has specifically used social media marketing to continue to close sales and drive success.

Armani previously resided for many years on the island and lived the island life to the fullest from living aboard a scuba diving yacht to running a coffee farm in Holualoa. She is also a photographer and journalist who has authored numerous books and articles describing Hawaii's underwater world, flora and fauna and island history. Armani is a licensed drone operator and puts her photography skills to use by capturing the beauty of Hawaiian properties.

“After running a successful real estate business on the mainland, my goal was to always come back to Hawaii,” said Armani. “I have a lot of experience in Hawaii. I lived here for 10 years and back on and off after. I have a knowledge of Hawaii that goes beyond what most people have through owning a business, writing books, doing the research and as a property owner myself. And with all of the lifestyle property types Hawaii offers, United Country is the perfect fit.”
