I have extensive experience working with international sellers, investors and clients with an interest in Hawaiʻi’s superior properties. Most recently, I represented Honolulu’s billion-dollar luxury development Park Lane Ala Moana – considered one of the most affluent and successful developments in the Pacific, with their exclusive sales brokerage. I’m a native of Honolulu, from a large real estate family which does business on every island. I’m uniquely positioned with an innate familiarity of the Hawaiian Islands and our unparalleled landscape of real estate.
As an investor myself, I have seen real estate prove to be a lucrative investment choice – and with clear understanding and collaborative strategy, nowhere is this more demonstratively promising than in Hawaii. In addition to Real Estate, I spent the last twelve years as an entrepreneur and Hawaii restaurant owner. The skill sets I developed as a business owner, coupled with my real estate knowledge, provides valuable resources and insights for my clients.
Second to my family, the Hawaiian Islands and our unique way of life hold utmost importance to me. The culture, tradition and natural beauty are treasures that I love to share with clients and investors who may be new to the islands. Hawaii’s most sought after properties rarely change hands - and when they do, they are often sold off market. I connect my clients with these discrete yet coveted opportunities through trust, teamwork and my valued network.
I have a B.A. in Journalism from University of Southern California and an Executive MBA from the University of Hawaii at Manoa. I take an integrative business-minded approach to real estate, with marketing at the forefront. I believe brokering community assets is vital to success.
Outside of real estate, I’m passionate about travel and surfing - often with my two daughters Eliza and Jordan, all while collaborating with my husband, local residential architect, Andrew Shaw, AIA, on new design projects.
