Kayla Ueki
Coldwell Banker Realty
About Kayla

My goal is to help you to realize the opportunities in home ownership for yourself and your family. I specialize in working with first time home buyers, service members, investors, and sellers looking to maximize their returns on Hawaii real estate. You can trust that my personal and professional experience will help positively guide you through any real estate situation. I grew up on the Windward side of Oahu and Graduated from Kailua High School. I attended Hawaii Pacific University on a full ride scholarship where I received my Bachelors degree in Entrepreneurial Studies. After college I moved to San Diego to pursue a career in retail. There, I was consistently ranked amongst the top 5 sales people at one of the highest volume stores in the country. It was a great experience that lead me to take an “early retirement” and travel to so many amazing places. Three years and 27 countries later, I found myself back in my favorite place in the world, Hawaii. Wanting to provide something more fulfilling than just helping clients get good deals on shoes and handbags, I decided to shift gears and help families invest their money and build wealth through real estate. Coming from a middle income family, I know the sacrifices my parents made to just barely get by here in Hawaii. Thankfully my mother started early and purchased her first condo when she was just 20 years old. Interest rates were at an all-time high of 17.5% and making such a large purchase terrified her. She managed to continually make her monthly mortgage payments and after a few years, sell that condo and purchase a single family home on Kauai where I was born. Many years later my parents are now able to leverage their forever home in Kailua as a partial rental which has allowed my dad to retire and my mom to enjoy all of her hobbies. It’s stories like theirs that really inspire me to help families purchase their first, second or even fifth property and build wealth for themselves and generations to come. Motivated by helping Hawaii families like my own I will help you make your real estate goals a reality. My clients benefit from my creativity, dependability, and professional service. I believe no two clients are the same and as such every client receives the personalized experience they deserve.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Halawa?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Halawa?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
