Primary Properties has been such a supportive and fulfilling company to be a part of since 2003. Having experienced our company grow from a small group of agents to where we are today has been an exciting journey. We all come from various backgrounds but share the same goals to assist our Clients and each other.

Licensed since 2002 and obtaining my Broker's license in 2011, I also have sales experience as Assistant Manager for Prada Hawaii Corporation. My background in sales and knowledge in the Japanese language has enhanced my ability to work with my Clients in real estate. My father is a property manager and I have been exposed to the various aspects of managing properties. Becoming a successful property manager is one of my future goals.

Married to an extremely supportive husband, we have two wonderful daughters who were both born during my years at Primary Properties. Our young daughters' daily activities and needs keep me very busy but is also very much satisfying. We reside on the east side of Oahu and cherish our family time spent lounging in our pool or taking a walk in our neighborhood.

As our company continues to expand, I am excited to grow and broaden my knowledge and look forward to the many positive changes in our industry.


"Huge Mahalo to Leslie! We cannot begin to express how grateful we were to have Leslie represent us during the sale of our property....self-awareness in providing us with a superb "Above and Beyond" service is reason for the easy access to her on a daily basis (via email and phone). She regularly followed-up and kept us abreast of every action taken by the Buyer's agent.

Her documentation was thorough and well understood, and she addressed every question related to documentation and next steps in the process. Even with her current medical condition (expecting a baby), Leslie regularly came across as we were "VIP" clients and never, once said "I'm busy...", "....you have to wait". Equally enough, she allowed us to dictate what we wanted and never pushed us into doing things "her way" which we often hear others experienced with other Real Estate Agents. That is professionalism, dedication, and attention to customer service!". -C.A.M.

"Integrity is my main concern & Leslie was my Selection. A true professional in every aspect, Leslie went out of her way to process all transactions. My highest recommendations. Mahalo Me Ka Aloha." -M.Y.

"Excellent Customer Service. Agent that assisted us was truly professional." -B.M.
