A Young Couple Explores Options on Kauai

Richard and Tessa McSwain love the outdoors but hate the long, dark winters in Boulder, Colorado. After visiting Richard's mother in Kauai several years ago, the couple fell in love with the island and waited for the right opportunity to make their move. Recently, Richard was offered work as a general contractor, and Tessa convinced her bosses to let her work remotely from the island. With jobs secured, the McSwains are ready to trade skiing for surfing, and have enlisted the help of Hawaii Life Broker Glenn Forman to find the perfect house or condo for their new life. Tessa is looking for extra space for her home office, as well as an updated kitchen, while Richard wants the perfect outdoor entertaining space to enjoy the gorgeous Kauai weather. And their new home must be close to all the new activities the couple is eager to pick up in paradise.
