2013 Aloha ‘Aina REALTOR® Award Winner
Blaise and Michele of Properties of the Pacific, LLC have been real estate agents since 1995. They started their career at Kumai Realty and quickly established themselves earning the Rookie of the Year Award. Since then, they have been with national companies Prudential Locations and Coldwell Banker Pacific Properties, having earned the President's Circle, Chairman's Circle, Salesperson of the Year, and Outstanding Sales Awards along with the Fine Homes designation. However, the annual Client Service award and the Aloha 'Aina Realtor Award and nominations are the most precious to Blaise and Michele, as these awards are only given through their clients nominations for outstanding service in real estate.
In 2015, with 20 years of experience, Blaise and Michele made a decision to move professionally to Properties of the Pacific. "We believe in placing our clients first every day - and meaning it. With Properties of the Pacific we know that our clients will feel confident in having the strength and resources of a local company lead by Brokers with in-depth experience, ideals, and principles that create a positive life philosophy resulting in client satisfaction."
Prior to pursuing a career in real estate, Blaise was the operations supervisor for Theo Davies Marine Agencies. His responsibilities included working with U.S. Customs and Immigration while coordinating services for international shipping companies. Working with the shipping industry gave him the foundation for the organizational, technical, and people skills needed in real estate contract negotiations. Blaise also has experience in the construction and remodeling industry, which offers a unique perspective to his clients' evaluation of property.
Michele's previous 10 years of sales and marketing with nationally recognized companies such as Polaroid and Minolta give the team an advantage in formulating customized, strategic marketing plans for their client's properties. Market trend and individual property analysis, as well as identifying and targeting potential buyers gives Sellers an edge in the ever changing real estate market.
Committed to their clients, Blaise and Michele both work full time in Real Estate. They are partners in business, and in life. Living in Manoa and raising their son, they enjoy volunteering at Iolani School, Manoa community, as well as other charity events.
