Carole Manuwa


I’ve lived on O‘ahu since 1989 and have been in real estate for 25 years in our beautiful state. I started in land sales and shifted my focus to residential sales in 1997, just two short years after I obtained my Hawai‘i Real Estate Broker license. In that same year, I moved to the Hawai‘i Kai Marina, where I’ve lived ever since. I’ve loved everything about my career!

With 25 years of experience in the industry, I know the O‘ahu market and have built an excellent reputation for creating savvy home and condo marketing plans. I love creatively staging unique homes to present 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 have many happy clients who have attained high market prices in short marketing timeframes 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, especially in the Hawai‘i Kai market that I’m grateful to call home.

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. I completed a degree in Computer Science, and the attention to detail that the field requires lends itself well to the complexities, rules and regulations of the lending industry. I can efficiently manage the many details, while also giving my clients the snapshot overview they need to understand the process and follow the necessary steps to attain approval for a mortgage for their new home.

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. The experience of moving every few years as a child honed my adaptability. I quickly adapt to my clients' many personalities and needs - whether they are buying or selling or simply planning for their future. I'm intuitive and resourceful, hardworking and ethical.
