Aloha, I'm Joan

My Mission

As a professional REALTOR-Broker I am dedicated to making the process of buying and/or selling a home as easy and as satisfying as possible. I pride myself on respecting and accommodating the needs of each individual client.

Hawaii, My Home

Although I am originally from Waukegan, IL, I can claim Mililani, Hawaii as my home. I’ve lived in Hawaii since 1982 (40 years) and have grown my beautiful family on the island of O'ahu; our blended family is built of my husband, three daughters, two sons, and now six grandchildren. Most have relocated to the mainland after college. My oldest son recently retired from the Air Force (23 yrs) and I’m excited he is now a Realtor as well.  In the years I’ve spent here I’ve participated in volunteering opportunities to give back to our community and to inspire the youth in my town which includes: Girl Scout troop leader (10 years) and Project Graduation chairwoman. The few years I had spent away from Hawaii were for my husband Federal job in Germany and South Korea. The overseas adventure has given me an in depth understanding of the complex process of moving with the government/military.

Through the years that I’ve been a realtor I’ve accumulated a set of outstanding professional resources including: mortgage lenders, escrow & title specialists, home inspectors, termite inspectors, home insurance providers, as well as other contractors that will help you in buying or selling your home.

"Joan has extensive knowledge of the Hawaii real estate market. She was a tremendous help guiding us through the seller process. We were very pleased with the advice from Joan and final settlement."

  -Stevens (Mililani Mauka-Seller), Client

"Joan assisted us with the sale of our home from start to end! Prior to putting our house on the market, Joan visited our home and gave recommendations on what repairs and upgrades would make our home more marketable. We had to move before all of the repairs could be completed. Thankfully Joan kept an eye on the repairs and kept in constant communication with the service providers and us. Once all the repairs were completed, Joan staged our home, took beautiful photographs and sent them to us along with a draft listing for us to review. We couldn't believe our eyes! Our house looked and sounded so amazing we almost jumped back on a plane to cancel the sale of our home. While our house was on the market Joan regularly updated us with private viewings, open houses, and other potential offers. Once we received an offer, we knew it was official. Joan made the process so easy and smooth. After escrow closed, Joan mailed us a closing binder...along with our favorite snacks from Hawai'i! "

  -Izon (Mililani Mauka-Seller), Client

"From the beginning, Joan was always there to walk us through the process of buying a house. It all started with a very helpful packet of information with a flow map and checklist of the process. I really liked the personal touch of including a cover letter with a picture of us when submitting our offer for the house we were interested in. Constant communication through phone, email, or text also made me feel at ease; especially since we were dealing with a large transaction. I appreciated the way she always looked out for our best interest whenever she had to communicate with the seller's agent or our loan officer. Joan was great at giving helpful advice or suggestions and we always took that into consideration when making our decisions. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants a realtor who is efficient and reliable. "

  -Kawamura (Mililani Mauka-Buyer), Client

"Joan was an awesome realtor! We wanted to find our first home and did not know where to start. She was very patient throughout the whole process. She often responded to us and met with us past business hours. She showed us many properties until we found the property that felt like home. In the very competitive Mililani market, Joan knew exactly how to offer on our property. The whole process was very smooth and I believe it was because of her extensive experience. I would highly recommend her to any family or friends."
