Jon’s hallmark trait as a realtor is the “high touch” service he provides to his clients, a personalized approach, working with their timelines and desires. A real estate purchase can sometimes seem complicated, so he tries to make the process as easy and understandable as possible. Moving to Compass was an opportunity to work with other agents that have the same values. He is now part of REAL, Real Estate And Living in Hawaii–a team taking real estate to the next level by providing new technologies to the industry, and partnering together to make sure that all clients get the same “high touch” level of service.
Jon’s real estate career started in 2003 under the tutelage of Rodney Mukai, a mentor and friend to this day. As part of the Mukai Group, Rod and Jon worked on over $200 million worth of real estate sales between 2003-2009. In 2009, Jon stepped out on his own and has since won numerous awards including:
On his spare time you can find Jon with his family Stacey (wife), Nysa (daughter) and Asa (son). You can also find him at Hisessions.com, a musical passion project that Jon has been working on for the last 13 years.
Jon was born in West Covina, CA, but has lived in Hawaii, specifically Hawaii Kai, since age 2. He’s basically lived in Hawaii Kai his entire life. A Kaiser High School grad, Jon went on to get his Bachelor’s degree in Education (Science) at the University of Hawaii. Go Bows!
