Professional Profile

E komo mai. This is not a typical banking website filled with big promises and teeny-tiny type at the bottom. Here you will find useful resources, payment calculators, glossary of loan terms with meanings, and, a safe, comfortable place for you to ask questions and get prepared to make your home purchase or loan refinance.

I wasn’t always a loan originator.

Since 2006 my family rented several houses in Kona only to be faced with rising rents, pet/animal restrictions, aging appliances, and…two houses sold right out from under our feet! (Yes, I unplugged the Christmas tree and put it into the moving truck ornaments and all) We didn’t think we’d ever be able to buy a home in Hawaii. However, in 2015 with perseverance we did. The experience was so ‘enlightening’ to me, that I decided I want to help others do the same. When I say enlightening I mean frustrating!

I am a professional mortgage loan originator in the State of Hawaii. My primary goal is to help all families in Hawaii own their own home.

Yes, I do investment loans.

Yes, I help families relocate to Hawaii.

But, my passion is helping local families buy their own homes. No more rent, no more worries. Let’s get you in a home of your own. Allow a professional mortgage loan originator like me get you on your path toward home ownership.

You have me as a hometown resource, I am here to help your family buy your home and secure your future.
