More About Me

Integrity and Excellence in All Things

Born & raised in Kailua, on the Windward Side of Oahu, Leon attended Kamehameha Schools before going on to graduate from UH-Manoa. He soon realized a career in Real Estate would allow him to combine his business, sales, and architectural background with his love of Hawaii. With a commitment to "Integrity and Excellence in All Things," his enthusiasm and dedication extends through every part of his life. 

Among many pastimes, he enjoys surfing, paddling, fishing, traveling, and spending time with his friends and family. He is happily married to his wife Maria who fortunately upholds the same values, love of life, and dedication to her career.  

With most of his business generated as a result of referrals from past clients, Leon realizes the importance of ensuring smooth transactions.  "My goal is to deliver real estate experiences beyond expectations, to enhance my client's lifestyle.  My past clients then refer their friends and family to me, and I truly appreciate that."

The life of the land is perpetuated in righteousness.


"Buying & Selling property on Oahu while we are on the Mainland could present any number of problems. Leon guided us past all potential difficulties and was all over every detail. He negotiated aggressively yet reasonably. I've been at this for 45 years since my first real estate purchase, and he is the best I've ever encountered in this industry." - John & Patti Distad 

"We just wanted to let you know how incredibly grateful we are for everything you did to help us get the house of our dreams. We love living here, and are enjoying getting to know Kailua. You made buying our home such an enjoyable experience. All of your efforts and attention to detail made it such a seamless process. We can't thank you enough!" - Gavin & Sian Heyworth 

"My father recommended Leon, who he had met years before at an open house in his neighborhood, because he was bright, very professional, and had an excellent understanding of the Kailua real estate market.. He was able to describe every home in Kailua that I had questions about. Leon has everything I expect in an excellent realtor - responsive, professional, articulate, well-informed on the real estate market and the laws/procedures for selling, and honest in his dealings." - Doug & Kristin Cleveland

"Leon has represented us on our last 9 real estate transactions, and we would recommend him to anyone. He got us full price or better for all four sales, and the five properties we purchased were at prices well under comparable sales. He is our Realtor for life, and we have been recommending him to all of our friends and family." - Mark & Krysti Peacock
