Land Restoration

Joshua Chavez has been in the real estate and construction industry on Maui for 19 years.  Growing up on the island, he started in the business after graduating from King Kekaulike High School in 1999.  Joshua has helped many people to realize their dream of owning a piece of Maui, and has years of experience in developing his own and other properties.

Current projects are Wai Moku and Hoku Nui Maui.

The Wai Moku Project is an effort to clear invasive trees and to restore native Hawaiian agriculture.  It is located on a 25 acre property owned by Joshua that is a site for agriculture, education, land restoration, stream life, and Hawaiian culture.

Hoku Nui Maui is a 258 acre property in Upcountry Maui being developed into a regenerative farming community.  Joshua handled the acquisition of the property and is assisting in managing development of the project.
