I am a real estate professional and proud member of The Barnes Hawaii Group, the leading luxury broker Elite Pacific Properties' #1 top producing team on Oahu. I'm a member of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR), the Hawaii Association of REALTORS® (HAR), and the Honolulu Board of REALTORS®(HBR). As my team motto states, I am ready to go to work for you today.
I am a genuine Waikiki expert and Oahu connoisseur. For more than 10 years, I made Honolulu, Hawaii, my home by gaining traction as a real estate agent, investor, entrepreneur, master marketer, keynote speaker, business coach, and consultant. I'm also the author of the book Prospering from your Passions, The Art of Living Your Dreams. My story is a journey about following your heart into sales, entrepreneurship, and business.
Being thorough and able to empathize with my clients is something that I pride myself in. I feel strongly about giving way above-average customer service and professionalism to each and every client. One of my strengths is really listening to my clients' needs, concerns, and desires to anticipate and overcome any problems that may come their way. I am capable and confident to help in all areas on Oahu, but my roots are in Waikiki, as I am extremely knowledgeable and have truly immersed myself in this area for many years.
Oahu is a competitive hotspot in the real estate market, which is why I am so aggressive in finding the right properties that are available at any given time. I don't look at my job as selling and instead treat it as a business where I am performing a service for my clients. I usually end up gaining friends in the process. It doesn't matter if my clients want to buy or sell a property; there is no amount of time or work that is too much for me to get the job done.
I am a big follower and believer in personal growth and development. When I won the Table Topics State Championship for public speaking with Toastmasters International for District 49, I knew I was becoming the leader and speaker I always wanted to be. I believe it is invaluable to find your purpose in life by turning your passions into your profession. I was able to do this once again in real estate, which is a big and exciting accomplishment with immeasurable value on its own.
The joy of traveling is something many people across the world love, and it is definitely one of my favorite things to do when I am not working. Although I love traveling, I remind myself on a daily basis how lucky I am to live here, literally in paradise. I love being active, including hiking, running, surfing, swimming, and just going to the beach. I am excited to be joining the Outrigger Canoe Club for my first year of paddling in 2017. I have a thirst for knowledge, and one of the things I enjoy most in my free time is simply reading a good book.
