Dan Ishikawa


As a real estate broker on the Big Island, I treat my clients' needs as I would my own. Since receiving my license in 2014, my straight forward approach has led to return clients and referrals, allowing real estate to be my sole career since the day I began. I’ve acted as a Broker-In Charge of a boutique firm, and a Broker Associate in an internationally competitive firm. Through these experiences, I have learned the ins and outs from some of the best in the business. I have helped my clients through stressful situations, turning them into successful transactions. Now, I’m a great resource when it comes time to selling properties and finding the right home for new & experienced buyers.

I’m originally from Tokyo, Japan, and was raised on Maui from an early age. In 2012, I made what was intended to be a temporary visit to the Big Island, and I’ve lived here ever since! I eventually found my way to the Hamakua Coast where I’ve spent the last 9 years. I spend most of my spare time with my partner Darya and our son Keanu, w/ our adored dogs, working and tending to our off grid family homestead in Laupahoehoe, or enjoying my passion -- partner dancing. I also love to explore the island - hiking, surfing, camping, freshwater swimming, and so much more. I have a deep love and understanding of the island and enjoy the opportunity to share what I know with clients; it’s why I feel so lucky to help people in their time of transition.

What my clients are saying...

We had been trying to find a home off and on for 3 years. When we began working with Dan, we immediately knew we were in good hands. He was very thorough and eager to help. He was honest and upfront about the process and all involved as well as his own knowledge and limitations. Whenever he did not know the answer to one of our questions, he told us so then would not rest until he had found the answer for us. We were looking for a home in an area he was unfamiliar with, but he quickly familiarized himself and used his connections to find out everything he needed to know. He readily accommodated our schedule and we were confident in the process knowing he was representing us

After looking for a property for two years and failing to connect with several realtors we were so fortunate to run into Dan. He was 100% committed to finding us THE perfect property and took us all over the island. He showed us over 40 properties, walking through POURING rain and never did he complain or gave up on us. When we finally found our perfect place Dan called it out before we even made up our minds -- that's how well he understood us. He is very dedicated, respectful and a great human being. I highly recommend him!
