I have been an office leasing associate with Colliers since 2015. Prior to making the transition to commercial real estate brokerage I worked in the Institutional Trust Department at Bank of Hawaii which laid a solid foundation for servicing business clients. I am born and raised on the island of Oahu and graduated from Punahou School in 2007. From there I went on to earn a B.A. in Finance from the University of Hawaii.
I genuinely enjoy everyday of work I have at Colliers. Whether it’s working on the landlord side representing my clients such as Alexander & Baldwin and Kamehameha Schools or representing tenants to help solve their commercial real estate needs. The thing I find most rewarding is working with a client with a tough requirement. Being able to get creative and think outside the box of “you need “x” amount of square feet in this area” is refreshing. It helps to keep everyday exciting and allows me to bring new ideas to all my clients even if their requirements seem straightforward.
I pride myself as always making sure my client feels like they are number one. I am always responsive and make sure that their needs are always first priority. Others would certainly describe a part of my personality as empathetic and I believe I’m able to use that empathy to stand in my clients shoes and truly see their issues from their perspective. Ultimately I judge my success on the feedback I receive after a deal has closed. If I was able to solve a problem, take over the workload of the deal, and my client is satisfied that would mean I’ve done a good job.
When not working to relax I love to do anything related to the ocean. It could be surfing, bodysurfing, stand up paddling, or just really anything outdoors. I am also proud to be a volunteer as well as board member of Surfrider Spirit Sessions. A program which allows me to share my love of the ocean with at risk youth and give them a pathway to make positive life changes.
