Building Bridges Between Real Estate Dreams and Reality
Our Team of Agents takes immense Pride and Care in creating value and providing a service to all of Our Clients as if they were Family. There is no task too small or too large that we can't handle; from the moment our Buyers and Sellers hire us, we strive to guide them every step of their process with great attention to detail and diligence to achieve Our Client's goals. It is Our Hope to Help as many people as possible become Homeowners here in our Home Sweet Hale of Hawaii.
Having grown up on Oahu, and lived all over the island, I am a Realtor acquainted with the community, housing market, and various neighborhoods on a first hand basis. From Pearl City to Haleiwa, Kaneohe to Hawaii Kai, and all that's in between... there isn't much on the island I haven't seen. It would be my absolute pleasure to use the knowledge I have to help guide you and those you love in finding a Home here in paradise or help showcase your Home against other properties on the market.
I have been with Century 21 iProperties Hawaii, formerly Abe Lee Realty, for over twelve years now. I can't think of a better way to utilize my background in architecture and interior design to meet so many wonderful people, help them achieve their Real Estate Dreams, and still work with homes I love.
In 2017 I became a Licensed Broker and also acquired my Military Relocation Professional Certification to better understand and assist my VA Clients smoothly transition to and from the islands as a professional familiar with VA timelines, benefits and loan-specific guidelines. I'm always striving to adapt with the times and attain as much information as possible to continuously improve my services for all my Buyers and Sellers.
As more and more of my Clients, their friends and family depended on me to help fulfill their Real Estate needs, I teamed together with a select group of other like-minded and heart-focused Real Estate Agents to maintain that same level of service to meet the higher demands. Together we assisted 100s of Clients Buy or Sell their Homes here in Hawaii; on Oahu and on neighboring islands.
In Fall of 2019 I added Prelicensing Instructor to my Resume, and now have even more impact alongside my Mentor, Abe Lee, in shaping our industry and educating our consumers in all of their Real Estate pursuits. We also host Free Seminars throughout the year for Agents and Clients alike to learn dos and don'ts of the industry with extra tips on how to stay ahead of the curve or prepare for buying/selling.
Whether it's buying their first home, their last home, selling a childhood home, or launching an investment; I know our dedication and attention to detail will not only get the job done, it'll create friends for life. After all, none of our clients are just transactions. Each one of them, whether we knew them before or not, are now our friends because they know we truly care that they reach their Real Estate Dreams, at their pace, with the options right for them.
Let us know how Our Sweet Hale Team can help you and yours achieve your Real Estate goals here in our Island Paradise <3
Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother; but Mamma to many more. I became a Real Estate Agent in 1985 here on Oahu and have worked all over the island ever since. I am particularly passionate about helping First Time Buyers and those in need of assistance with the sale of property due to hardship.
For me, if I'm helping you and your loved ones buy or sell Real Estate, you become part of our Hale Family. It is a Barbara Pratt promise to make sure that you are taken care of.
With over 35 years in the industry, and even longer in Customer Service, there isn't much I haven't seen, been through, or had the pleasure of having to sort out and get done. With the support of our Team, I can commit that there are far and few in between that are as loyal, dedicated and hard-working to take care of you and all your Real Estate needs. We look forward to the opportunity to help you.
For as long as I can remember, I have always enjoyed helping others. Growing up on the island of Oahu, I know what it means to have the Aloha Spirit, and the natural flow to treat people like family.
Having worked in customer service for over 13 years, 10 of which I have enjoyed flying as an Attendance for Hawaiian Airlines, I am very familiar with the level of attentiveness and commitment our Islands pride themselves in when it comes to providing.
In 2020, I decided to pursue a new career in Real Estate, where I could utilize my passion to help people find their happy place. Whether you would like to buy a home, sell a home, or purchase an investment property; I believe each is a huge milestone and a journey I would love to be a part of!
Born and raised in Japan, I made the move to Hawaii 25+ years ago when I fell in love with the lucious mountainous landscape and beautiful beaches. I have been fortunate enough to raise my family here in Mililani Mauka, where I still reside and work from our newly opened hub office.
I started my Real Estate journey as an investor in a two bedroom condotel on Ka'anapali Beach, Lahaina and later expanded my portfolio to Kaka'ako and Waikiki on Oahu after obtaining my Real Estate License through Abe Lee Seminars in 2019. Initially I began my Career as a Part-time Agent while I continued to work retail in the bustling Waikiki Shopping Mecca, but decided to make the transition to Full-time Realtor in early 2021.
Now, as a bi-lingual Agent, recently getting my Military Relocation Professional Designation, and a part of the Home Sweet Hale Team, I am able to continue to expand my personal Real Estate Portfolio while also pursuing my passion of connecting with Clients to help them achieve their Home Buying and Real Estate goals while providing them the best service possible. I am so grateful to live in such a wonderful paradise, so full of a culture my family and I love, and part of Team that is as enthusiastic about helping others and our community as I am.
I knew right from the start that my Heart was in Real Estate. Growing up in the Mountains of Wahiawa on the island of Oahu and later moving to Mililani, where I still live today, we are raised with a sense of Aloha and kindness for everyone we encounter. I truly believe that this Aloha spirit is an integral part of how I, and Our Team, help our Clients in all their Real Estate Purchases and Sales.
With 30+ years as a proud Hawaiian Airlines Employee, both as a Flight Attendant and Trainer, I am not a stranger to being Customer Centric focused or adapting to various situations. Additionally, I am a blessed mother of three, with my youngest leaving the nest soon; so it was the perfect time for me to transition into my next, more grounded career as a Realtor-Associate and a part of the Home Sweet Hale Team in mid-2020.
We definitely give extra Love and effort into every step of the Process; whether it's flying back and forth to neighbor islands to meet with Clients, helping declutter or packing up for the big move, to personally staging Homes and making individual goodie bags for every Open House... it's all about the details and making our Clients feel like Family. There's no tasks too big or too small that our Team can't handle!
