Sydney Liptak began her real estate career in California in the late 1980’s where she has represented Buyers and Sellers by providing outstanding and personalized service. Sydney is a Broker Associate at Equity One Real Estate, Inc.  She also maintains her Broker’s license in California and is associated with offices both in California & Hawaii which gives her clients the very best opportunity for cutting edge, current industry information. 

Early in her career, Sydney represented the Federal National Mortgage Association (FANNIE MAE) in liquidating their foreclosed assets. “FANNIE MAE”, is the largest secondary market lender in the world.  Sydney was their lead Broker for the county and was recognized for her production and excellence in asset management, REO liquidation and marketing and construction management skills. Sydney’s attention to detail was rewarded with special awards given to her in Dallas, Texas by Fannie Mae at their regional meeting. Sydney represents such large entities as Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Chase Bank, Bank of New York, Aurora Bank, Wachovia (formerly) as well as many other corporate clients in the liquidation of their REO assets.  She is comfortable representing both individual clients as well as corporate clients and this experience has given her a thorough knowledge of construction, repair, bidding and probably most importantly negotiation.

Sydney was raised on a horse ranch in Southern California and was actively involved in the Arabian horse breeding and showing business. Sydney competed for several consecutive years in the Arabian Horse Show Association Nationals. She placed in the Top 5 in the nation twice and again in the Top 10 in Saddle Seat Equitation, a discipline which judges the rider and not the horse!

Sydney works as a team with her husband, Jim Liptak in the real estate business. They have two daughters who live on the mainland and five grandchildren which keeps her Hawaiian Airlines miles account active! Her hobbies include walking, hiking, working out, SUP, canoeing, gardening and her Malti-poo pup, “Aloha.”

Sydney is an accomplished REALTOR® Broker who brings both creativity and insight from her past experience to her clients in their pursuit of settling into the island life.  Comfortable marketing either residential, ranch properties or luxury homes, Sydney’s acumen for follow up and client service provide exceptional results for her clientele, whether they are local, individual clients or the larger corporate clients. Sydney is prepared to deliver.
