With five years in real estate and 20 successful transactions to date, I bring a wealth of client service experience to my real estate profession. Having spent 20 years as a flight attendant with Aloha Airlines, I approach my clients just as I did my passengers, treating them as welcome guests and friends – while sharing my knowledge of Hawaii to help them make the best decisions possible.
Originally from California, I’ve been a Hawaii Kai resident for 26 years and know the inventory very well, though I also often sell properties in Makaha Valley, Makakilo, Kaneohe and Kailua. I love knowing that my listings have never looked better because I’ve worked in collaboration with the homeowner to show it in its best light.
My favorite part of my work is finding the perfect home or upgrade for my clients. Seeing the smile on their face when they find their new home is so exciting, and I love closing and handing them the keys to their new home.
My real estate philosophy is simple: to provide each client with a level of service and integrity that I would give to members of my own family. My goal is to find both buyers and sellers the best possible deal on the finest property that meets all of their needs in the most reasonable amount of time.
I pride myself on:
In addition to my hospitality and tourism experience, I also bring a sales background to my work in real estate, having managed a jewelry department at Mings Jewelry Store. I’ve been serving clients and customers throughout my professional life.
My husband and I are the proud parents of four children. Having struggled with fertility, my kids are a great source of joy (and sometimes stress!). When I’m not working, I’m busy attending their soccer games, running them to Eagle Scouts and enjoying food and wine with my Aloha Airlines girlfriends. I love to work hard so that I can enjoy an annual vacation with my family and make wonderful memories that will be with them always. My family and friends are very important to me.
We had the most excellent experience with Kristeen Yasue, who went way above and beyond the call of duty to help us with a particularly complex sale and escrow. I'm hesitant even to mention some of the "value added" things she did for us, for fear that others reading this review will expect too much from her. She staged it so well that it sold almost immediately for almost full price. She was refreshingly candid, exceptionally knowledgeable, remarkably helpful, and wonderfully supportive. You just can't do better than Kristeen at East Oahu Realty.
