Todd Granato R(S)
Sales Consultant, Pili Mai at Poipu

Todd’s celebrated career in luxury resort property sales began during the ski season of 1995 in Breckenridge, CO. It was here, he discovered a way of living that he, his beautiful wife Alison, and their two young boys have enjoyed for 20 years. Todd’s success has been built on a philosophy where “selling” is not the business of persuading others, rather it is an art where one is able to effectively “transfer feelings” in a way that allows others to envision how their lives could be better. Having the good fortune of living in dream locations such as the Hawaiian Islands, and being of service for some of the most well respected names in the industry like Marriott International, Hyatt, and East/West Partners, “transference of feelings” comes easy for Todd. A resident of Kauai for more than 10 years, Todd deeply appreciates the lifestyle it provides his family and loves sharing his passion and enthusiasm with customers.
