Abby Kumar


As a real estate professional who has lived all over the world, Abby transacts with an international flair. She exercises exceptional communication skills, has a keen eye for quality, and has a determination that enables her to help clients succeed. Her journey to real estate started in India, where she first fell in love with thoughtfully-constructed homes and designed the home where her parents live now.

Through all of her endeavors, Abby has fine tuned her ability to engage, then step back and observe. In 2018, when she decided to apply that to real estate and obtained her license, she went straight to Hawai’i Life because she believes in doing her absolute best by working for the best company. Abby also appreciates the exuberance of Hawai’i Life and working as a team to offer clients the 5-star experience they deserve.

When Abby met her first clients, they had already experienced property searching with 11 other agents and had no success. She was able to help them locate and purchase a property that exceeded their expectations. To go above and beyond is Abby’s style. Along the way, she attacks problems head on with a playful attitude, fully expecting to overcome the most difficult of challenges.

Before moving to Hawai’i, Abby was the first woman bartender in India. She was compelled to navigate through unchartered territory, winning over many by displaying her genuine love of people. The experience equipped Abby with the ability to pay close attention to what clients are saying and what they weren’t saying. It also helped her to develop an incomparable confidence. With her newly found confidence, Abby learned to accomplish all that she set her mind to, including acquiring her Masters degree in both English Literature and Hotel Management, all while finding the time to dance hula with Hula Halau 'O Kamuela, the 2019 Merrie Monarch winner. When Abby began, she was the only dancer who had not grown up studying hula. But by applying incredible determination, she put in the hard work and learned the dance and language of hula.

Fluent in English and Hindi, Abby also learned French and picked up German during her stay in Frankfurt. Today, Abby lives in Kahala with her husband and two daughters. She specializes in representing international clients, focusing on East Oahu real estate, from Kaka’ako to Hawai’i Kai.

Abby is transparent and does things the right way from the very start. She knows what international clients are looking for and works hard to ensure a safe investment that they might rent out, sell later, or enjoy for years to come. If you’re ready to buy or sell but you can’t be present on the island, you can trust Abby to be there for you every step of the way.

What my clients are saying...

I have worked on several transactions with Abby on the other side… I can’t recall ever enjoying transacting as much as when I worked with Abby. Major problems seemed like minor hiccups. She should definitely be given rockstar status.
