Dave Barca was born in San Francisco and moved to West Maui in 1969. He began purchasing Maui property in 1974 and has never looked back. He raised three children: Gina, a very successful real estate broker on Maui; Dustin now 25 and a professional surfer on the world tour and Nicolai, now 23, a University of Hawaii graduate with a degree in forestry technology. Nicolai was recruited right after graduation by the Nature Conservatory. Nicolai is an avid bow hunter and fisherman now living and working on Kauai.
When not in the office, Dave can be found aboard his boat, supplying fish for the many Maui restaurants. Dave holds a black belt with the prestigious Japan Karate Association and has enjoyed teaching the local kids as a community service.
He and his lovely wife, Elizabeth, still live in their original Napili home. Dave specializes in West Maui land, homes and the Kaanapali Shores Resort.
