Dan Ishikawa


As a real estate broker on the Big Island, I treat my clients' needs as I would my own. Since receiving my license in 2014, my straight forward approach has led to return clients and referrals, allowing real estate to be my sole career since the day I began. I’ve acted as a Broker-In Charge of a boutique firm, and a Broker Associate in an internationally competitive firm. Through these experiences, I have learned the ins and outs from some of the best in the business. I have helped my clients through stressful situations, turning them into successful transactions. Now, I’m a great resource when it comes time to selling properties and finding the right home for new & experienced buyers.

I’m originally from Tokyo, Japan, and was raised on Maui from an early age. In 2012, I made the move to the Big Island of Hawai'i, and I’ve lived here ever since. I eventually found my way to the Hamakua Coast where I’ve spent the last 6+ years. I spend most of my spare time with my adored German Shepherd Ollie or enjoying my passion -- Brazilian partner dancing. I also love to explore the island - hiking, surfing, camping, freshwater swimming, and so much more. I have a deep love and understanding of the island and enjoy the opportunity to share what I know with clients; it’s why I feel so lucky to help people in their time of transition.

If you're looking to buy or sell real estate on the Big Island, call me up and I will help to you make sound decisions for you and yours. Reach me directly at 808-557-5847, or shoot me an email at danishikawa@hawaiilife.com.

What my clients are saying...

After looking for a property for two years and failing to connect with several realtors we were so fortunate to run into Dan. He was 100% committed to finding us THE perfect property and took us all over the island. He showed us over 40 properties, walking through POURING rain and never did he complain or gave up on us. When we finally found our perfect place Dan called it out before we even made up our minds -- that's how well he understood us. He is very dedicated, respectful and a great human being. I highly recommend him!

Dan was instrumental in the buying process for our forever home in Kapulena. The seller was very challenging to work with, and there were some title issues as well. Dan was very skilled at articulating to us the costs and benefits of different negotiation positions, allowing us to make fully informed decisions. He was very patient with our questions, have nearly all answers close at hand. For the few questions he could not answer right away, he was quick to admit it, and then sought out the answer ASAP. Dan was always very responsive to our emails and phone calls, usually getting back to us within an hour if he did not answer immediately. I would strongly recommend Dan to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
