REALTOR ASSOCIATE

Bio:
ALOHA, I am a real estate agent on the Island of Oahu, Hawai'i. I moved here to the beautiful island of Oahu, 10 years ago from Tokyo. I was born in Anaheim, California, where I lived for 10 years and was also raised in Phoenix, Arizona for 9 years.

When I first moved to Hawaii, I was a Sophomore at Mililani High School, where I cheered for the Mililani Trojans. After graduating from Mililani High School in 2011, I decided to major in real estate finance and entrepreneurship at the Shidler College of Business at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. I wanted to further my understanding of real estate, so I decided to obtain my Master's degree, and in the Spring of 2018, I successfully obtained my "MBA in Project Management." This has proven to be useful in real estate projects/developments and managing real estate projects.

Always wanting to learn more in order to better serve my clients, I went on to obtain my GRI classes (Graduate of Realtor Institute) and look forward to successfully obtaining my Broker's license. I take great pride in knowing that my clients are satisfied and my goal is to prosper together with them. I enjoy guiding my first-time homeowner clients through purchases of residential condos/ single-family homes, as well as guiding companies through acquisitions of commercial real estate.

I am fluent in Japanese and English as I spoke Japanese at home while I spoke English outside of the home, and my parents also enrolled me in Japanese Saturday schools (which I REALLY hated going to at the time)... but, since my parents have helped me become bilingual, I am EXTREMELY thankful for them. Since the age of 10, I've helped my family and friends with their real estate purchases by translating English/Japanese in their transactions. I became a realtor at age 21, and I've been in LOVE with my life career!

Being a daughter of a former sushi restaurant owner, I LOVE making sushi (and of course to eat sushi), hiking, surfing/bodyboarding, and playing with my mini doxies (miniature dachshunds). A week out of each year, I enjoy visiting my friends and family back in Tokyo, and go to hot springs "onsen!" I love to go swimming, biking, and playing tennis together! My friends and I love real estate yearn for the outdoors, doing fun activities and meeting different people. I love the lifestyle of living in Hawai'i and are lucky to live in Hawai'i. I LOVE my Hawai’i life!

Aloha,
Kana
