Growing up, I was born in Oregon, raised in Germany and across too many states in the U.S. to count. Each move became an adventure and instilled in me a passion for new experiences via new homes. Over the past 25 years, my husband and I have bought, remodeled, and sold 7 properties across all 4 of the western-most United States while raising our two children. For our most recent home in Maunawili, I took on the responsibilities of Owner-Builder armed with the culmination of years of experience from our previous home projects. While it was a labor of love, this ultimately was a fabulous opportunity to heighten my real estate experience and knowledge.
The Hawaiian word and meaning of “Pono” resounds in me, wherein all is good, all is right and all is hopeful. In addition to my energetic commitment to clients’ requests and requirements, I am steadfast in my honor and integrity and in my goal to highlight best-practices of agency; to put the interests of my clients above all.
As my daughter, Anna Barrett, shares my passion for real estate it was natural to forge a professional union together. Anna’s and my partnership brings a unique mix of expertise for today’s sophisticated buyers and sellers, offering not only representation with strong negotiation skills, impeccable communication, and integrity, but also dynamic mixed media marketing. Together, we bring double the skills, double the attention and double the enthusiasm to our clients!
Outside of real estate and in my extra time I enjoy creating new walk-routes around the island, making music play-lists and relaxing with family, friends and my cats.
Thank you for being the most amazing realtors and friends. We arrived in Hawaii not know anything about different locations and you took such good and patient care of us. Thank you for finding us the perfect home. You are both angels!
My husband and I recently used LeAnn and her daughter, Anna, to assist us with the purchase of our new home on Hibiscus Drive in Honolulu. It could not have been a better, easier experience. LeAnn and Anna are an incredible team. Highly professional, and extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of the transaction, they provided us with very helpful guidance during each step of the process. Since returning to our primary residence on the mainland, LeAnn and Anna have continued to make the experience of buying, closing on and setting up our Hawaiian home (from a distance) effortless. From waiting for deliveries to finding people to help with the maintenance of our new Ohana Hale, they have happily been there for us in every possible way. We can’t speak highly enough about these first rate realtors – a true asset to the Choi Group.
