When I worked for the homebuilders and developers directly, my license always tied me to representing their best interest. In starting my own practice, I wanted to make sure that I always represented my own client's best interest (aka, that's you!) Whether you are planning to buy or sell, or even just in the early process of considering your options. My experience and expertise in the real estate industry, is now YOUR experience.
Let's talk about it!
Let's make plans!
My first real career was at Nordstrom and to this day, I still contribute the principles instilled as the fundamental foundation of striving to provide my clients with the best service within my ability. It was about the experience!
I look back at my own experiences in buying a home and I want to make sure that my clients feel that there is a difference in my work ethic and the little things that I do to go the extra mile for them.
I am continuously learning, studying, connecting with other fellow agents, all with the purpose of being the best agent I can be and making my clients feel good in knowing that I am handling every step above and beyond.
In starting my real estate career in a (declining) shifting market, I have always had to make the best out of what felt like the worse. This has given me an edge in resiliency and to learn to be a lit bit scrappy. Instead of feeling defeated when an obstacle arises, it presents the opportunity to get curious and try new things to keep us moving forward. I always love this phrase about making lemonade out of lemons because I have found that during lemon season, you truly do have to create new opportunities for the abundance of lemons that arise!
Lemonade, Arnold Palmers, Lemon Cake, Lemon Bars, or my favorite cocktail is a French 75 - gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, topped with some bubbly champagne. Personally, prefer vodka over gin. Tito's. *cheers*
I am one that always looks on the bright side. Even when everything feels like its going wrong, I try to see it through to the other side. All the way through until we are in fact on the other side.
In real estate there are many things beyond our control! And I am definitely one to feel like I would like to control everything!
Know that if you call on me, I will always take the good with the bad, shine my solar powered flashlight on all-the-things, and get them handled.
Some people get sick of that sugary sweet optimism on my part, but trust in me when I believe in the magic and smallest of miracles that keep us moving forward!
My parents were born in the Philippines, but grew up in Hawaii. For basically my whole life, going to visit grandparents meant flying to Hawaii. I was pretty much a teen before I realized that people flew to Hawaii just for vacations.
Ohana is a Hawaiian word that can mean "home" or "family". In our culture, growing up, everyone is basically family. Even family friends of my parents or grandparents became my Aunties and Uncles. Or you my cuz.
When we attended a party (or hosted one!), it pretty much felt like the whole island was in attendance. And... we were all family!
If we meet, or even better, have the opportunity to work together, know that there is high likelihood that you will become a part of my family's Ohana.
