I’ve been a licensed Realtor on O‘ahu for 39 years and have closed more than 200 sales in my career. I’m passionate about helping buyers find their dream home and helping sellers to negotiate the best possible price and terms. I thoroughly enjoy working with clients, many of whom are now lifelong friends.
I graduated from the College of Education at the University of Hawai‘i and was a kindergarten and elementary school teacher before launching my real estate career. I also worked as an Executive Secretary, and as a Sales Manager, honing my sales abilities and attention to detail along the way.
When I’m not working, I enjoy cultivating and caring for orchids. I’ve been the recipient of many Culture Awards from the Hawai‘i Kai Orchid Society, the Kaimuki Orchid Society, and the Aiea Orchid Society.
Deanna is terrific!
One of the things I truly appreciate about Deanna is her genuine compassion and concern for her clients. As for the real estate transaction itself, working with her again was an easy decision. She has the gift to explain things well and is extremely patient. She has incredible in-depth knowledge about the transaction, but can also come up with strategies for selling a condo that only experienced Realtors are able to implement. Throughout the process, I noticed that Deanna was highly respected by other Realtors because of her reputation for honesty and fairness. She approached the negotiation with the utmost fairness and always strived for win-win negotiations. The buyer also appreciated her approach and everybody was smiling throughout the transaction. She always kept me informed of where we were in the process and I didn't have to call her once to get an update. The closing was equally smooth since all the parties knew their roles and responsibilities. The professionals she has surrounded herself with are truly world-class, just like Deanna.
