Theresa Sommer


I was born and raised along the Arizona/Nevada border between Bullhead City, Arizona and Laughlin, Nevada.  I graduated from Arizona State in 1995, and started a 20+ year career in the hospitality industry.  In April of 2002, little did I know it but my life would be forever changed.  I took my first trip to Hawaii to visit a friend who lived on Oahu. From the moment I stepped off the plane, I knew I was home!  In September of the same year I moved from the San Francisco Bay Area to Honolulu, Hawaii where I planned everything from intimate weddings to city wide corporate events. Realizing I was spending more time working and less time enjoying the beautiful islands I lived on I made a life changing decision. I eventually transitioned from being in the hospitality industry and began utilizing my customer service skills for a new career in real estate.  I worked in real estate coordinating escrows and learning the business while continuing to plan events and conventions in the hospitality industry.  In 2005 I worked as a licensed Realtor on Oahu and The Big Island of Hawaii while working as an innkeeper at a friend’s Bed and Breakfast right here in Volcano. After a short time, I moved back to the mainland to Las Vegas, Nevada to be closer to family where I continued my career in real estate.   Returning frequently to Hawaii to visit friends, hike and explore, I always felt like I was coming home.  During each visit I would fill my heart with the aloha of the islands that I love so much which would carry me along until the next time I could come. Unable to push my fate away any longer, I am returned to Hawaii to be your innkeeper and host at Volcano Acres Ranch In April of 2015.  I am now proud to add Volcano Acres Tree House to the Volcano Acres family.  I am looking forward to talking story with you and helping you have a vacation to remember!
