Primary Residence

Buying your primary residence? If this is your first home ever or its your first home in three years, there are several loan types available starting at zero  down payment. There are so many new mortgage options, we will explain the differences so you get the best loan to suit your needs.

Vacation Home

If you already own your primary residence and you're wanting a vacation home, you have access to 10% down payment for US Citizens and 35% down payment for Foreign Nationals. Vacation homes are not intended for rental income, so if you're planning an Air B&B that's an investment property loan.

Investment Property

Hawaii may be the hottest real estate market in the United States and it's known worldwide. Investing in  short-term rental and long term rental property can create lifetime cashflow. With 20% down payment we can provide financing for condos, houses, multi-unit, plus hotels and mixed use.

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! 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. I am a licensed mortgage loan originator in the State of Hawaii. You have me as a resource, I am here to help your family buy your home and secure your future.
