I've been selling real estate since 1999, and I want to help you with your real estate goals. I've earned Hawaii's Top 100 Realtors award 7 times (out of over 5000 agents). I put my faith in God and my family before my work, and I work hard to feed my growing family!
As a local Real Estate Broker and General Contractor, I help people navigate the challenges that arise in our unique market. Real estate transactions can be very stressful. I understand the risks of real estate investing, having personally invested in both condos and Single-Family Homes, employing both short-term (fix & flip) and long-term (buy/hold, rehab/rent/refinance) strategies. Through my 13 years in the industry, I’ve come to understand the importance of being surrounded by reliable and experienced professionals. I can help you build a winning team that will treat our clients as we would our friends, and every property and transaction as we would our own.
I've been in the real estate industry since 2002, and I'm proud to be a part of Tony's team and to committed to continue providing great quality service to our clients. As a team we work hard to honor the Lord, our clients and each other.
