Welcome to the new web site of Steve Marcotte, real estate consultant and musician.
This site is under construction and replaces apoparadise.com, the site of his former vacation rental company, A Piece of Paradise.
Steve has been involved in real estate since his early twenties when he bought his first house. His family lived on the ground floor and the second floor had a rental apartment that provided income. Many real estate purchases later he bought a beach cottage in Hawaii in 1992 and, being a Silicon Valley software engineer at the time, became a pioneer by renting the cottage on the internet. Steve moved to The Big Island in 1996 and started a vacation rental company named A Piece of Paradise located in the magical area of Kapoho Beach. Besides his own vacation rental properties, he also managed the finest properties in the area. He recently sold A Piece of Paradise, started Hawaii Second Homes, and is expanding from The Big Island to Waikiki, Honolulu and the island of Oahu.
Steve's musical career started even earlier than his real estate endeavors. He had the good fortune to grow up in the San Francisco area during the golden era of music. Steve is a composer, guitarist, bassist and performs in Hawaii and Japan.
