Mary Benson


Born and raised in Los Angeles, I have lived all over the country after graduating from the University of California, Irvine with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. Blessed to land in paradise with my family, I ran a successful auto dealership and insurance agency.

In recognizing my affinity for real estate, I set out to pursue a career which allows me to seek my passion for beautiful homes, architecture and people. My business savvy and decision-making skills are traits which translate seamlessly into my profession as an agent. I understand that buying a home is one of the most important decisions in a person’s life, and as such, should be treated with the utmost respect, integrity and diligence. Having a tenacious work ethic, plus an entrepreneurial spirit, assists me in advocating for each client and makes me well-equipped to see deals from inception to completion. Whether relocating to Hawaii, searching for the perfect family home or looking for an investment property, I’m committed to achieving your ultimate goal.

Giving back to the community is one of my core beliefs. I’m a long time Rotarian and serve as president of the Rotary Club of Honolulu Sunrise, Co-Chair of the Honolulu Zoo Society, and Junior League of Honolulu Board Member. I was also a recipient of Pacific Business News' “Women Who Mean Business” Industry Leader Award, past Kalihi Business Association President, Damien Memorial School Board Member and participant in Governor of Hawaii David Ige’s Kalihi Vision Committee. I’m also a strong supporter of New Hope Oahu, Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children, Boy Scouts of America Aloha Council and Child and Family Services.

In my spare time, I enjoy being with my family, hiking with my Dalmatians (Sparky and Dottie), traveling, decorating and entertaining friends.
