5949D Kalanianaole Hwy, Honolulu, HI 96821 - $8,800,000

Why did you choose Real Estate?

My family in Asia was involved in real estate development so I grew up in a real estate environment.

What was your journey to where you are today?

I started within a year of my arrival 33 years ago in Hawaii with only 8 names on my prospect list - my daughter's school teacher, my sign maker, the gardener, and another educator ... and then I started building the list to about 1,000.

What is your biggest success story to date?

I had been working with a $2M buyer from California for over a year - but he just could not find the right property. On one of his visits, I invited him to dinner but incidentally, I had to swing by a broker's open house so I asked him if he could tag along.
We went in to see this $11M oceanfront listing ... and we made an offer that same evening and closed in a week!
He went on to buy other $13M and more properties. When I asked him why he did not tell me he was good for more ... he just gave me a smirk.
