Dave Dunbar


I was born in Southern California in the small town of La Crescenta and always loved visiting Hawai‘i. After receiving a bachelor’s in English from California State University, Northridge, and working in hospitality and entertainment jobs in Los Angeles, I met my wife. Dawn is a local girl born and raised in Honolulu. We soon made the move to Hawai’i, which has been my home since 2001. Our family and friends, the local traditions and community, and the ocean have combined to make Hawai‘i my permanent home.

I joined Hawai‘i Life after a long career as a business owner and distributor of medical device equipment in Hawaii. As an entrepreneur working in a high-paced industry, I am a stickler for attention to detail and follow through. After two decades, I decided to sell my business and focus on Real Estate. My interest in Real Estate was spawned by personal investments in Texas and Hawai‘i properties. I have paid close attention to the local markets and industry trends in Hawai‘i, and I know that a high level of customer service, quick response and trust, are keys to a successful partnership and satisfaction. Whether it’s purchasing or selling a home, or investing in a property, my approach is to listen to my clients and work with them to make certain that the process is smooth and efficient from day one to closing.

I am fortunate to have a great support system with my wife, Dawn, our two children, Mie and Charles, and two chocolate Labs, Lily and Woody. The Dunbar Ohana enjoys eating, spending time on the North Shore, traveling, sports, and surfing.
