Leane Darling


I have been involved in Real Estate for over 10 years. Studying Real Estate Finance at Southern Methodist University’s Cox School of Business inspired me to pursue a career in Real Estate. I have worked at one time or another in Commercial Real Estate, Property Management and most currently, Residential Sales on Oahu. I am very active in community affairs and am co-founder of a non-profit organization called Changing Tides Foundation.

I believe in one on one customer service and my goal is to consistently exceed my clients' expectations. I am an active member of the National Association of Realtors, have sat as treasurer on the Board of the North Shore Regional Group of Realtors and have completed my Realtors Green Designation.

Originally from Florida, I have lived abroad and traveled extensively, collecting experiences that contribute to my Real Estate Career. My husband, Jesse Horton, is a gifted sculptor, hunter and captain. If we are not traveling on our sailboat you can find us surfing, free diving or body surfing. There's no place like home, and there's no place like Hawaii.

What my clients are saying...

The best decision we made upon learning we were moving to Hawaii was working with Leane. Her love and knowledge of the island and it’s unique housing market developed an immediate trust and confidence in the process. As first time home buyers, Leane went above and beyond to answer any and all questions. Given our search started before arrival to the island, Leane stood in lines at open houses, asked questions to sellers, spoke to neighbors, and even sent us videos of different areas of the island. Once in escrow, Leane’s organizational skills proved to be next to none. She made the process easy and smooth. Thanks to her, we are now home owners on this beautiful island!

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!
