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.

The Hawaii Life Charitable Fund is currently matching the first $40,000 in donations to the Hawaii Resilience Fund which provides grants to community-based organizations to rapidly address the COVID-19 crisis in Hawai‘i. You can join us in donating at

What my clients are saying...

Leane is an amazing real estate agent and a truly special person. As a first-time buyer, I felt incredibly nervous and overwhelmed by the process, but Leane guided and supported me through every step in my journey to buy my dream home on the North Shore. I feel so lucky to have an agent as kind, organized, knowledgeable, and trustworthy as Leane on my side! I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to buy or sell a home in Hawaii - she knows the market and the community, she will work tirelessly on your behalf, and she is an absolute joy to work with.

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!
