What do Clients Say?

"Wayne being born and raised in Hawaii, and who grew up in a family of Realtors, offers extensive experience and in depth knowledge of the Hawaii real estate market. The most important part of finding a home that is perfect for our family was in the negotiation process. Wayne did an outstanding job using his excellent people and negotiation skills to have made our offer happen on our terms. Wayne is bilingual and also holds a law degree which is essential for this type of significant purchase. We have purchased and sold several homes on the mainland, I believe he was the best Realtor we ever had in our experience."

"Wayne helped us purchase our first property. His knowledge of the real estate market and his energetic negotiation style allowed us to make the right choice for the best price. Wayne also advised us through the escrow process and made sure we had everything we needed to complete the sale. We couldn't have imagined a better first home buying experience."

Mr. and Dr. Gaspar-Oishi, Trauma Nurse and OBGYN Doctor (from Toronto, Canada)

“Wayne is extremely patient and very knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate. Since we are busy with work in China, we found Wayne’s extraordinary follow-up and communication skills a huge time saver. He gave us a detailed analysis on each property and even flew to China to meet with us which saved us a lot of time. We made our final decision quickly putting our trust in Wayne and purchased our house sight unseen. Even after closing, Wayne helped us with the bank, insurance, post office, water and electric set-up, and referred great contractors. With Wayne, the house purchase was so easy and interesting. We simply took the key and moved into the house. We really appreciate what Wayne has done for us.”
