Leane Darling


I became a licensed realtor in 2012. I have represented both buyers and sellers specializing in single-family homes, condos, and some agricultural land on Oahu. My background is as varied as my sales, having at one time or another, been a lecturer at the University of Hawaii, a Sales Manager for an Athletic Swimwear brand and Property Manager to 16 Vacation Rentals on the North Shore of Oahu.

I have been an active and avid water athlete all of my life, both as a player and coach. In college I earned 8 x All-American Honors. I have coached at the University of Hawaii. I have also participated as a professional paddler for Team Hawaii at the ISA World Paddleboard Championships, three times. I am well traveled, having traveled through Spain , surfed in Costa Rica, worked as a Medical Translator in Honduras and most recently sailed with my husband on our sailboat from Mexico to French Polynesia. After all of those experiences I have found that there is no place on earth like Hawaii.

I am passionate about my Island home and have done extensive volunteer work in helping to restore its natural habitat. I am also a co-founder of Changing Tides Foundation; a non-profit whose goal is to team up with local organizations globally to raise awareness and address social, environmental, health and safety concerns in the places we visit.

When listing a property, I am tireless, whether showing properties to potential buyers, sitting open houses or using my extensive marketing experience to help create a sale. My ability to understand my clients' goals and to provide the best service are most important to me. There is nothing more valuable than owning your own piece of Real Estate and my goal is to use my local knowledge and creativity to help you fulfill your Real Estate transaction with maximized success. .

My husband is Jesse Horton; sculptor, hunter and captain. If we are not traveling on our sailboat you can find us surfing, free diving or body surfing. As a former All-American athlete in swimming, the water will always be a part of my life. There's no place like home, and there's no place like Hawaii.

Whether it is buying the home of your dreams or selling your home in pursuit of life changes, I am just a call, text or email away!


“I'd like to extend my gratitude to Leane Hornton for all her hard work, patience and guidance with the purchase of my new condo in Waikiki!
Leane was extremely kind and understanding of my needs and went out of her way to make things happen for me.
She assisted me through all the paperwork while keeping me on track with multiple deadlines.
The buying process can be stressful but she always stayed positive, making for a great experience overall.
I wholeheartedly recommend Leane, especially if you need extra attention and care!
