Carole Manuwa


I’ve lived on O‘ahu since 1989 and have been in real estate for 25 years on Oahu. I started my real estate career in land sales, shifted my focus to residential sales in 1997, and obtained my Hawai‘i Real Estate Broker license in 1996. As a past resident of Kaneohe & Ewa, and now living in Hawai‘i Kai I know the O‘ahu market well. I've lived on the Hawaii Kai Marina for over 20 years - my favorite neighborhood on O'ahu. I’ve had many fortunate years in real estate and I'm grateful for every part of my career!

With 25 years of experience in the industry, and have built an excellent reputation for creating savvy home and condo marketing plans. I use creative staging techniques to position my clients' homes, presenting them in their very best light. My clients have shown their appreciation for my abilities by nominating me for an Aloha ‘Āina REALTOR® Award every year since 2006.

I'm intuitive and resourceful, hardworking and ethical. My many happy clients have attained high market prices in short marketing time-frames, and I credit these results to my ability to translate national and international industry trends to our market, and to my local market insights gained from so many years of experience.

For the buyers I represent, I’m a skilled researcher able to find for them their perfect setting in the islands. I honed these skills in previous roles working as an internal auditor in the banking and telecommunications industries. My degree in Computer Science, is where I honed the attention to detail that the real estate industry requires and I can efficiently manage the many details of a sales transaction, while also giving my clients the snapshot overview they need to understand the market. Using my expertise in real estate and as a bank auditor, I’m able to help buyers and sellers quickly assess their bottom line and reach their financial goals when buying or selling a property.

I specialize in marina front properties and the sale and management of new residential developments. Over the years, I’ve been fortunate to have been selected to manage and market several substantial new condominium projects in Waikiki on O‘ahu, and Kauai.

I loved the experience! I love staging clients homes in preparation for market - and I love helping buyers see the potential in the homes they buy. My personal background and experience of moving every few years as a child honed my adaptability to the properties I represent, and my clients' many personalities and needs - whether they are buying or selling or simply planning for their future.
