Leeana Runningbear


I specialize in working with buyers and sellers within the resorts, luxury estates, and residential properties in the North & South Kohala area and the Kona coastline on the Big Island of Hawaii.

My focus is to share my abundant insights of the Big Island Real Estate market and diverse communities with you. My knowledge will help you feel confident in making your real estate decisions. With a resort office to work from and as a full-time realtor, I am able to get to the core of my client's Real Estate needs, wants, and wishes. I represent you and your interests.

Prior to living on the Island, I worked as an online marketing professional for one of the most influential tech companies in California. Working in the technology field provided me the skills to get your home the most visibility using a variety of marketing techniques. I use an array of marketing tactics such as print, online, social media, blogs, photography, market research, and more.

When I am not selling Real Estate, you can find me hiking along the coastlines of North Kohala, taking landscape photos, walking my new puppy Ula with my husband, and loving what the Big Island has to offer.

I am passionate about sharing the aloha spirit with my clients and helping them find or sell their Hawaii home.

I can be reached at (808) 785-5581

What my clients are saying...

Leeana has been the best! She works hard, and is very professional and down to earth at the same time! If you are looking for an agent I couldn't think of a better one than her!

— Scott Craig

Leeana is a terrific realtor! Professional, knowledgeable, very hard-working, and she has the patience of a saint. We were fortunate to meet her at an open house showing and immediately knew she was who we wanted to work with.

She established a portal specifically for our needs that was always up-to-date and easy for us to access from the mainland. Her response time is the best, and she is willing to go and look/video properties you are interested in.

She dealt with us for months and was always positive during our ups and downs about buying in Hawaii. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to buy or sell on Hawaii!
