Akemi Rubenstein



Born and raised in Tokyo, Japan, I lived in California’s Bay Area and on Maui before putting down my roots on the Big Island. For the past 22 years, I’ve lived and worked here, helping Japanese clients through my online business and working with local activity vendors.

Life on Hawai’i Island is simple, but we have everything we need. From Kealakekua Bay with its protected, calm waters to the Kohala Ditch, which Japanese immigrants built by hand, I feel a deep connection to the island’s history and culture. Since I was born in Japan and lived there for almost three decades, I also understand Japanese culture and traditions, and speak fluent Japanese.

As a Hawai’i Life agent, I’m proud to be part of a team of talented professionals that are sincerely kind and caring. As a local company that has grown organically to compete with national brands using smart technology, relationships, and genuine aloha for Hawai‘i, its people, the land, and our community, I am able to be part of a brokerage that’s culture aligns with my work ethic, values, and lifestyle. Hawai’i Life’s supportive atmosphere enables me to help my clients find their Hawai’i life.

I live in Waikoloa Village and have extensive knowledge of the Kohala Coast as well. For nearly four years, I have helped clients from Kailua-Kona to Kohala Coast, as well as Honokaa and Pahoa, achieve their real estate goals. My biggest accomplishment over the past few years is earning the trust of both my clients and peers in the industry.

My attention to detail, ability to anticipate clients’ needs, and loyalty are what help me sell whatever property sellers bring to me. And I am committed to helping buyers to purchase the right property for them.

I'm passionate about helping others by listening to their concerns, wants, and needs, as well as protecting them by being transparent in all real estate transactions. And I’m excited to provide the best service to my clients. When I’m not offering my clients the highest level of service, I love to watch Japanese TV dramas, go to the gym, and play with my two golden retrievers.
