Aloha & Welcome to my Home town. I would love to share with you a little about my Hawai'i Nei.

Born at Honolulu’s Tripler Army Medical Center, I’ve lived most of my life on O‘ahu and have 42 years of extensive real estate experience. I graduated from Punahou and obtained my O‘ahu real estate license within three months, in the summer of 1982. Real estate has been a family business for my parents and me. They bought the very first model home in Mariner’s Valley in 1972 and raised our family in Hawaii Kai, since 1967.

My father had been a military intelligence officer, but when asked to transfer from here, he declined. Instead, he launched a new career running Ala Moana Shopping Center, and that culminated in our family business – Hawaiian Pacific Realty – which operated for over 20 years.
My parents, Hal and Pat Reilly, were very active members in the real estate industry, and my mother was my business partner at the East O'ahu office until she retired in 2017.

Through my personal experience and recent NAR designation, I am now a seasoned expert on senior living. I've helped downsize, reorganize and sell homes quickly and efficiently. For those who have reverse mortgages, I know the ins and outs, and the pros and cons. I will create a plan to help Mom and Dad in their later years, so they can protect their estate & secure their future. I have also become a relocation specialist for those moving here from the mainland or internationally. And I have a good understanding of all it requires for Our Military Families to move... again, to a new location. I can make it easier and enjoyable too.

I’ve closed countless transactions over the past four decades in this vibrant business, and I’ve been blessed with an opportunity to change Peoples’ Lives. I’ve been dubbed the ‘Persistent Professional’ by many of my clients, and as a 'Bargain Hunter' by others. Which is funny, because for a brief time in the 1980's, I lived in Beverly Hills and worked for the TV production company, best known for The Price is Right, and then married the producer’s son.

In 1990, I moved back Home to Hawaii Kai, where I grew up. Waterfront living is what I like to call 'Beach Therapy' and works with my lifestyle. Some of my favorite activities include sailing off Waikiki, paddling with Hui Nalu and camping at Bellows on Waimanalo Beach.

I believe in aligning my life and loved ones with gratitude and 'living pono'. Our land – our ‘aina` – is one of the most important assets that our generation must protect and revitalize. I invite you to rediscover O'ahu, if you’re kama‘aina – or discover it for the first time, if you’re new to the islands. Hawaii is a place where you can reconnect with your spirit.

From our son Scott, who is in the Kaiser Complex public school baccalaureate system in Hawaii Kai, I take his school’s philosophy of living the four “R’s” to heart. I incorporate it into my real estate practice: Being resourceful, resilient, respectful and responsible.

My goals are to help my 'people' with all their real estate goals, from their 1st Home to the 10th investment! Nothing is too small or too big.

I love my real estate career! It feels like freedom to me, because it allows me to Change People's Lives & lets me do, what makes me happy.

Please reach out to talk story about your O'ahu real estate needs.
I look forward to changing your life for the better!
The ‘Persistent Professional’ at your service!
