Candace Y Yap


I first obtained my real estate license in 2001 and subsequently pursued my broker’s license in 2006. I made newcomer of the year in 2002 doing real estate and became one of the leads on the military sales team. In addition, I was on the Moana Pacific Project Sales Team. I also volunteer as a teacher for first time home buyers at the Hawaii Home Ownership Center. I love helping my clients reach their financial goals towards retirement by building equity while living in their home and purchasing investment properties.

Blessed to be a native born and raised in beautiful Honolulu, Hawaii, I was a legal secretary before launching my real estate career. In that role, I learned to deal with timelines and deadlines, in addition to time management skills and the value of being prepared and working ahead.

Because I love working with people I also worked in retail sales and customer service roles that brought me in contact with a wide variety of people, honing my sales abilities and ease in making connections while creating solutions to people’s needs.

I am returning from a brief hiatus during which I tended to my sister, who passed away in 2016. I am currently rebuilding my real estate practice and looking for new clients. I appreciate my home here in beautiful Honolulu, Hawai‘i and am grateful to have a fresh new start. Buying or selling a home is definitely a fresh new start, and I hope to assist you with yours!

I specialize in O‘ahu real estate, and have serviced Hawai‘i Kai, Kahala, Pu‘upanini, Waikiki, Kaka‘ako, Ewa, and Kaneohe areas.

Please contact me at (808) 383-3189 or via email at for all your help with your O‘ahu real estate needs.

What my clients are saying...

Great doing business with you and will let you know when we are ready to upgrade!

— Vincent Fong

With all of the work and trouble I gave you I really appreciate your patience, kindness and thoughtfulness in the sale and purchase of my properties. I hope your PB compensates you well for dong two properties in less than 45 day. Everyone I talk to cannot believe we/you did this. Again, thank you so much!
Much Mahalo and Aloha!
