FOUNDER / OWNER
Kahanu Noa possesses income properties on the islands of Hawaii, Maui & Oʻahu. Since acquiring his first property in 2012, he has actively participated in the development of vacant lots as well as new construction in the residential and commercial spaces in Hawaii.
Kahanu’s calling to help the people of Hawaii find housing stems from a childhood spent in perpetual transition. Growing up on the Westside of Oʻahu, he lived in housing developments, on aunties couches, and ultimately with his tutu. It was not until boarding at Kamehameha Schools did he have a room and a bed of his own. Growing up this way gives one the resilience and freedom from material things that few youth of today can appreciate. Nowadays, Hawaii’s children have more things than ever before, and despite cell phones and social media, Hawaii’s families are extremely disconnected.
