Shore To Shore Realty, Inc. established in 1980, has a long standing presence in Maui's real estate community. Founder Nobu Agena, former Realtor and schoolteacher, built this company slowly - starting with residential property management. Unfortunately, Nobu passed away in an automobile accident in 2000.
Al Imamura and Van Waki purchased the company from the family that same year with a promise to Nobu's heirs to continue Shore To Shore's ongoing reputation of honest, prompt, and personalized service. Both Van and Al are Maui gentlemen and Realtors, like Nobu, and both were raised in Maui. At that time Al was employed with another real estate company in Maui where he had worked for 21 years. Van was also doing real estate part-time for 10 years while working full-time for a local newspaper company.
Since taking over the reins in 2000, Al and Van have nurtured Shore To Shore Realty, Inc. to become a major factor in real estate property management and sales. The inventory of rentable properties has grown to over 400 units. To support the growth, the staff has increased to six full-time employees and one part time employee from the initial three. The offices of Shore To Shore Realty, Inc. has moved twice, requiring larger moving space.
The sales personnel has also grown tremendously. Initially with only Al and Van as licensed Realtors, Shore To Shore Realty Inc. now has 20 licensed Realtors who diligently work with owners to market their property and buyers to find the home or condo of their dreams. The sales team is a mixed bag of eclectic professionals with various experience and backgrounds. All of Shore To Shore Realty Inc. sales agents work diligently in providing the best service to whomever they work with.
