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 11 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 islands 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...

I highly recommend Dan for any and all of your real estate needs. He has assisted me in buying and selling several homes over the years. He is extremely dependable, showing up on time and following through when there are issues to look into. He also values communication and keeps me informed about the closing process. Having tried several different real estate agents before finding Dan I can honestly say that communication and dependability are not valued equally by all agents. I am not only a client of Dan's but I am also a real estate appraiser and consider Dan a great resource for local information and greatly appreciate the fact that I can contact him when I have questions and know that I will be able to reach him. Dan's a great guy and easy to work with and when he is representing me I am confident that he has my best interest in mind.

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!
