Who We Are

Tony L. Pinkert
Tony L. Pinkert
Tony began his successful real estate career in Minneapolis, MN. His path to Hawaii Island took him through Newport Beach, CA where he specialized in luxury residential real estate sales in beach cities spanning the Orange County coastline.
In 2005, he made the leap across the Pacific, joining Centex Destination Properties where he clinched the status of “Top Salesperson”.
Already a veteran in the Hawaii luxury market, Tony accepted a position with Hualalai Realty, an internationally acclaimed luxury residential resort on Hawaii Island’s “Gold Coast”. It was during his 10 years with the group that he expanded his already impressive client list. Tony has secured a spot in the Top 100 agents in the State of Hawaii several times.
About his passion for real estate, he says, “I love making the deal, delivering something really special to my clients. Owning property in Hawaii is like owning a piece of paradise for you and your family to enjoy. Very few have this unique opportunity.”
Tony joined Elite Pacific Properties in 2016 with his partner Tom in order to expand their business to other resorts on the Kona-Kohala Coast. He holds a BA in finance from the College of St. Thomas in Minnesota, lending a solid foundation in high stakes transactions.
Tony enjoys surfing and spending time with his wife Ericka and two daughters Skylar and Mya.

Tom Loratta
A longtime resident of Hawai‘i Island, Tom Loratta has logged more than 35 years contributing to the success of prestigious luxury residential resorts set along the Kona/Kohala Coast, including legendary Mauna Kea Resort, Mauna Lani Resort, Kukio and Kohanaiki among others.
Consistently ranked among Hawai‘i’s top 20 performers, Tom counts 17 years spent as lead sales executive with Hualalai Realty – being part of the vision, growth and success of Hualalai Resort – as one of his most rewarding career accomplishments. That success led him to form a business partnership with his colleague, Hualalai sales executive Tony L. Pinkert, and develop Pinkert & Loratta in 2016. Since then, they have become founding members of the #1 brokerage in the United States, Compass realty.
Through this evolution, they have expanded their reach within the island’s luxury realty market further demonstrating their dedication to representing clients and prospective clients looking to buy or sell property along the Kona/Kohala Coast.
To date, with a career built on establishing strong, long-term relationships, Tom has earned a stellar reputation for his expertise, integrity and commitment to surpassing expectations in every transaction. Data compiled beginning in 2017 reports Pinkert & Loratta total sales to date as $640 million.
The team is committed to giving back to the community. As such they are long-time supporters of the Hualalai Ohana Foundation which provides annual grants to Hualalai employees and contractors to help cover family medical expenses not covered by insurance, and provide educational scholarships. The Foundation celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2023.
Tom has two daughters, Lux and Alyssa, and lives on three acres upcountry in Holualoa Town with his wife Amy. In their free time, they farm lush island fruits and vegetables.
