We'll never sell you on any particular home, but we will provide you with the information you need to make the right decision for you and your family.
I was born and raised on the Big Island of Hawai'i and I moved to Spokane in August of 2000. Prior to moving to the beautiful Pacific Northwest, I was attending the University of LaVerne in Southern California. Shortly after beginning my freshman year, I learned of my mother's degenerative liver disease and the fact that I was the only person in our family who was a perfect match for a living-donor transplant. My mother, father and younger sister had already moved to Spokane to be closer to the transplant center in Denver, CO when my mother was added to the liver transplant recipient list. Shortly after their move, I myself moved to be closer to my family and to begin preparing to give up part of my liver to save my mother's life. This was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for me to give my mother back the same gift which she had given me 21 years earlier...the gift of life! After moving to the area and after another year of preparing we finally set a date for the operation. At the time about one in 500 living-donor transplant operations had fatal complications. With this in mind, we elected to proceed with the operation just after the holiday season, so we could have one last Christmas together should something go wrong. Miraculously, just days before Christmas, we received news of an available liver from a deceased donor. My mother quickly boarded a flight to Denver and went straight into surgery when she arrived. We spent that Christmas in Denver with my mother and her new liver. This was actually the best possible scenario for my mother. With the first few years after transplant being the highest probability of organ rejection, I then became her backup donor. I stuck around Spokane to be readily available should she need to call on me again. Over time I became accustomed to living in the Pacific Northwest and eventually met my gorgeous wife. We now have a wonderful little boy together and a thriving Real Estate business. My goal in founding The 'Ohana Realty Group was to bring the "Aloha Spirit" of the islands to Eastern Washington. After working with a few of the larger, more well-known brokerages in town, I began to feel that Real Estate sales could be done in a better way. Our goal with The 'Ohana Realty Group is to provide our customers with a different kind of experience. We feel that we aren't necessarily sales people, but more of consultants. We NEVER sell you on purchasing any particular home, but we will give you the information you need to make the right decision for you and your family. In our opinion there is absolutely nothing more important than family. This is why we chose the name "Ohana" for our company. In Hawaiian, Ohana means family. We believe in treating our clients like family and in having genuine, long-lasting relationships. Our business thrives on referrals from our past clients and we hope to provide you with service far beyond your expectations so you feel completely confident in telling your friends, family and co-workers about us.
