“She is extremely hardworking, dedicated, organized, customer service oriented and has excellent attention to detail. I couldn't have asked for a better agent.”

“Yvonne was an outstanding agent. I have bought and sold several properties, and I have never before had an agent who came close to the outstanding service, expertise and commitment provided by Yvonne. I was living out of state when I listed with Yvonne. She oversaw the partial remodel of my home to prepare for market. She found and managed the contractors (who were excellent) and even picked out materials and paint colors. She updated me daily and even paid workers when my checks were delayed through the mail. She staged my home, using her own staging property… The staging was so outstanding that relatives who saw the pictures wanted to hire her as a decorator. Yvonne started marketing my property by 'word of mouth' to investors she knew who might be interested. Her 'word of mouth' advertising was so outstanding that I already had several full price offers by the time my house went on the market. She had an excellent strategy for how to market the property and which offers to accept as back ups. ... Through no fault of Yvonne's, I ended up named in a lawsuit by the first buyers whose contract I ended when I discovered they had missed funding deadlines and lied about the source of their funding. Yvonne stood by me during this entire ordeal.... She spoke to my lawyer and provided her with important details about the contract and its timelines. She was also an excellent sounding board and source of emotional support during this very stressful period. Her creative and strong negotiating advice* helped the attorney I hired resolve the lawsuit and I eventually closed with all cash buyers for well above my asking price. In general, Yvonne is very smart, knowledgeable about real estate, contracts, and the real estate market. She is extremely hardworking, dedicated, organized, customer service oriented and has excellent attention to detail. I couldn't have asked for a better agent.

“Her patience, relentless optimism and pursuit to achieve the best outcomes for us, and hard-work and professionalism continues to amaze us.”

We’ve recently sold our house with Yvonne, a $2M+ sale. This is the 3rd real-estate transaction (1 purchase and 2 sales) that she helped us out with in less than 5 years. She has a keen sense of what are the best actions that one can take to market a house and put it in the best light possible. Yvonne’s taste and staging skills are excellent - she went above and beyond of what we were expecting, to help us make our house look outstanding.

Our experience with the sale of the first house was very similar. She understands very well the characteristics of the Oahu market and what buyers are looking for. We were in a neighborhood where we had a lot of competition and houses stay on the market for a long time - Yvonne sold our house quickly. She negotiated a very good sale a price - she in fact suggested to go for a higher price when we were ready to settle for a lower one. Her intuition was correct again.

I’d say one more thing: it’s not only that Yvonne understands very well the real-estate market, law and contracts but she also knows how to deal with her clients - real-estate transactions can be emotional events in someone’s life. She knew how to hold our hands, guide us through the process as we went through each of these transactions and, at times, help us not take actions that could have been detrimental to us. Her patience, relentless optimism and pursuit to achieve the best outcomes for us, hard-work and professionalism continues to amaze us and have us come back to her for help.

“Knowledgable, Dependable, and Motivated”

From the very start, Ana proved herself to be knowledgeable, dependable and motivated to ensure that we were getting the very best care. She would go out of her way, above and beyond all expectations day and night to help when there was a problem. …

Ana is intelligent, knowledgeable and very personable. She goes out of her way to make sure things are done correctly and in a timely manner. All the tenants loved her. I was extremely happy and impressed with the way Ana did her job and could not have asked for a better Property Manager than Ana Kuna. 

- Mark Hall

“More than Happy to Work with Them Again and Again.”

Both Yvonne and Ana were very patient while we were looking for a home. They displayed a professional demeanor while submitting our offers on multiple homes, of course some of which were not accepted, but their ability as our agents was exceptional. I must say that the final purchase price was lower than the initial offer that we gave the sellers! I know that the knowledge that Yvonne and Ana have in the real estate market had a lot to do with us being able to buy our SUPER WONDERFUL home. Thank you so much Yvonne and Ana!  

The contacts that they have it the financing, home inspection and title aspects of home purchases were also very professional, accurate and timely in their efforts to serve us. Yvonne and Ana were very efficient with the correspondence through out the purchase of our home. Early morning, late evening, or weekend phones calls were either answered or responded to very quickly if a message was left for them. I really appreciate that type of commitment they gave us through the entire process. To sum the home buying experience with Yvonne and Ana in a few words. I would be more than happy to work with them again and again.

-Arleen & Darren Almeida

“Highest Price Ever … It was all great!”

Yvonne and Ana did a great job for me and got the highest price ever for a condo of that size in that building. She assisted with arranging for repairs and other things to get the condo ready for sale. The paperwork was incredibly easy even though I was on the mainland — the electronic process was perfect. It was all great.

- Keller Staley

“She never pushed us to do anything that we weren’t comfortable doing.”

Ana was there for us from the first day when we called her, telling her that we need an agent, until the closing day and even after that.
She helped us through all the intricate process of buying, with advice, referrals and guidance through all the paperwork needed to complete the process. While she was very receptive to our requests - she helped us put an offer on a very short notice on a house that we eventually decided not to buy, she never pushed us to do anything that we weren't comfortable doing.
The buying process was a lot easier with her help and in the end we felt we were lucky to have found a new friend.

“I would highly recommend Yvonne to any potential buyer or seller in Oahu.”

Yvonne is an excellent Real Estate Professional. She represented us as buyers in 2011, and in 2017 we contracted her to list our home. Yvonne brought in decorative artwork, plants, and other staging materials that she bought especially for my home that made the house look really beautiful. She even brought in a few pieces from her own home to create that picture perfect Hawaii style home. She created an incredible video showcasing the property by using professional photography including a drone that captures the house that is built into a steep hillside. The marketing materials were outstanding. She held numerous open houses and an extensive amount of showings. Always positive and excited to show the house.

Our neighborhood, Hawaii Loa Ridge is not a quick sale, many of the potential buyers have been purchasing the new luxury condos in town, and it does become exhausting to get a house ready to show with two teenagers living in it. I was becoming frustrated and was considering taking my home off the market and waiting until my kids left for college. Yvonne did a fantastic job keeping my spirts up and positive.

She would arrive early for a showing helping me get ready….Yvonne’s services, work ethic, positive outlook and knowledge of the Honolulu housing market are all outstanding. I always felt she was on my side keeping my spirts up, making me feel that selling my home was her number one priority even though she had many other clients. I would highly recommend Yvonne to any potential buyer or seller in Oahu.

“The Ultimate Real Estate Professional”

Yvonne is the ultimate real estate professional and I am convinced that the sale of our beach property would not have occurred without her highly developed real estate knowledge and the people skills she displayed to the seller and buyers together to consummate the deal. This real estate transaction was complicated and presented a number of obstacles which at times made us question whether we wanted to proceed with the transaction. …. Yvonne is the brightest and most dilligent real estate agent we have used in purchasing a home. My wife and I have purchased six homes over the years and this was the most challenging transaction given the physical distance we were from the property and its seller. There is no doubt that Yvonne’s attention to detail and responsiveness to our concerns protected us as buyers and resulted in us acquiring property in the location where we wanted to reside in Kailua.

- Neil & Charlene Smith

“A Phenomenal Realtor and Person.”

My wife and I feel like the luckiest buyers in Hawaii. When it came time for us to buy our home in Kailua, we knew almost instantly we were in great hands.

Ana Kuna patiently guided us through many properties on both the windward and leeward side, helping us understand how each might fit into our criteria. Ana listened to our questions and heard our concerns. She helped us estimate remodeling costs and find a great lender. She has a superb understanding of the market and was able to clearly answer all our questions or get us in touch with reliable plumbers, electricians, etc. 

Even when we came up against seemingly insurmountable challenges, she helped us consider another perspective which was very helpful. My wife, Laura, and I could not more highly endorse Ana as a phenomenal realtor and person. We recommend her to our family and friends and we look forward to working with her in the future. 

- Ian & Laura Fernie

“Best on the Island.”

She’s simply the best on the Island. It helps though that being an attorney she has in depth knowledge of the intricacies of contracting and the process of buying or selling a home, but even more importantly, she has the X-factor that cannot be learned. Passion and compassion, people skills, you name it, she has it. I recommend her without reservation.

“She is Fantastic!”

Yvonne is a dedicated and knowledgable real estate professional. She handled all aspects of the sale and provided me with above average piece of mind in knowing that things were being dealt with an a thorough and complete understanding of the many complex issues that were involved. I had a windstorm rip the roof off of the house a few days before closing and Yvonne managed to get it repaired, and passed inspection in time for closing. She is fantastic!

- MJ Feldberg, REALTOR & Trustee


“Amazing conflict resolver, therapist, designer, technologist, communicator and negotiator with exceptional integrity and passion”

Yvonne exceeded our expectations on every turn, with her attention to detail, exceptional knowledge of the market and transaction process, and even putting her own interest aside for the interest of us. Yvonne began the process by setting expectations on how the process would go, and prepared us well for our journey of selling our house. Her expectations were detailed, realistic, and turned out to be 100% accurate, down the exact amount the house would sell for. Amazing! …

This is the third transaction we’ve used Yvonne for, and I couldn’t think of anyone better to take care of my largest asset. She has impeccable design taste. Her marketing skills are like magic. The pictures and videos were amazing, and we received one of the highest per square foot prices ever in Enchanted Lake. She is an amazing conflict resolver, therapist, designer, technologist, communicator and negotiator with exceptional integrity and passion for her customer, her business, and her profession.

 — Kris & Martina Harms


“She followed through on every promise, paying attention to every detail large or small.”

Yvonne went far above and beyond the average realtor in helping me sell my mother’s waterfront home in Hawaii Kai. And all of this occurred during a very trying time in my life, dealing with loss and other family issues, so her extra assistance was very helpful to me. She knew better than I did what needed to be done to maximize the sale and gave me spot-on recommendations that ultimately proved to be right. In a very short time, I realized I had the best realtor I could have wished for. She followed through on every promise, paying attention to every detail large or small. As a business owner myself, I knew to what lengths she was going through to see this project through to the end. She got me through a lot of rough patches. She made so many things easier. Simply put, she was amazing.

— Lynne Hart


“Beyond Exceptional”

Yvonne is an extremely knowledgeble and detail-focused realtor. She demonstrates a passion for her job and takes her clients needs and desires very seriously. I’ve worked with other realtors before and she is beyond exceptional.

— Sage King

“Her priorities were always to get us the best deal.”

Yvonne Ahearn was kind, attentive, and professional while working with us. We are thrilled in our new home and are forever grateful for the assistance that Home Shoppe Hawaii provided. Given the competitive market in Hawaii we were impressed with our agent’s knowledge and her willingness to educate and assist us as first time home buyers. Her negotiation skills are top notch and her priorities were always to get us the best deal. Without hesitation, we would strongly recommend Yvonne to anyone who is looking to buy or sale their home.

- Steph Heacock & Yun Kang

“You both have a gift and natural talent for what you do.”

Thank you both [Yvonne and Ana] for being so great (knowledgeable, patient and professional) with our home purchase. You are truly a top notch team! It is apparent that you both have a gift and natural talent for what you do. Your expertise and delivery of advice was spot on. Our Hawaiian home purchase was the best experience we have had with purchasing a home. We are pleased with our purchase, especially the size of the house and lot and the privacy. If there is any way we can recommend you guys or post a stellar review about [you both] anywhere, please let me know. I can honestly say that Yvonne, you are by far the most qualified and talented Broker In Charge that I have met in my residential/commercial/federal real estate career of 14 years. I hope more and more local Realtors will see the true value of working for a BIC like yourself. Some assurances are priceless. Thank you and many Mahalos!

- Hope & Mark Marini

“I trust her implicitly”

Yvonne got us a house and piece of property that we never dreamed of - her pricing, negotiating, and management of the whole process enabled us to get into a house that would have otherwise been inaccessible. I trust her implicitly and use and recommend her in the future. 

— Sam Craig

“In depth real estate knowledge”

Yvonne with her in-depth real estate knowledge and her sincere personality, she provides her clients with exceptional real estate services. She truly lives up to the mission statement on her … website, helping clients achieve their desired Hawaii lifestyle by providing innovative and creative real estate services. No wonder she is already a 3 times Winner of Aloha Aina Realtor Award.

“I found it extraordinary that I could completely trust my realtor from 9,000 miles away!”

Mine was a challenging situation. I was an absentee home owner (trustee). The house needed a complete remodeling before it could be put on the market. And, it was unoccupied, which meant there needed to be someone to look after the property (which included a pool), as well. Yvonne stepped up to the plate as property manager, worked closely with our contractor to jointly fill the role of project manager and then took over as realtor seamlessly.

Ours was a custom designed/built home, that was going to appeal to a very specific buyer. Yvonne took the time to research the style of home, and during the renovations, worked to preserve the integrity of the mid-century style. Our family was the original and only owner, and this gave us confidence that respect was being shown for the sentimentality and attachment we had to our childhood home. Throughout the entire marketing process, Yvonne was committed to being personally involved with every on-site interaction concerning potential buyers. Her attention to detail included preparation of the property before every showing. And while we did hire staging services, Yvonne staged the bedrooms, patio and pool areas herself, displaying her breadth of talent and as well as her willingness to invest in staging inventory.

There were many serious ups and downs with the offers and almost-sales. Throughout, she maintained a positive, roll- up-your-sleeves and get back to work attitude. While our family could have become seriously discouraged, we took our cues from her and tried to persevere with patience. She kept her finger on the pulse of our particular market niche to ensure that the plan we were following was always viable one. We appreciated that she never pressured us to use aggressive price slashing as a sales strategy. In the end, both buyer and seller were extremely happy with the final agreement.

Yvonne demonstrated integrity throughout. The detail she insisted on in the disclosure statement is a good example. She often had to return to her roots as a lawyer to close up gaps in clarity or to follow through with contract or trust issues that arose. As a long distance seller, I found it extraordinary that I could completely trust my realtor from 9,000 miles away. Her willingness and ability to stay in close touch with me was the key to that trust. She was always forthcoming with updates, feedback and information, and I never hesitated to contact her as well. She offered boutique style personalized realtor services while still providing all the advantages of up-to-date technology. She is committed to detail, efficient, energetic, and completely worthy of the Aloha ‘Aina Realtor Award.

“One of the Most Ethical People We Have Encountered.”

She sold our house with a back up offer (both over asking price) in the first day and we closed with her on the new house (our third in a year with her) so that we were able to move from the first property to the second smoothly, due to special arrangements she organized with the new buyers and sellers. The house we wanted was extremely challenging to finance and Yvonne figured out a way to do it, working closely with our mortgage company to make it happen. She is always available, responsive, resourceful, connected and extremely well-informed. She is a pleasure to work with. Yvonne is fair, honest and one of the most ethical people we have ever encountered.

- Klaus Knoll + Cella


Yvonne advised us to neogtiate more aggressively than we originally planned. Her strategy worked.  It’s the first time frankly, when a realtor has advised me to offer less that I intended as a starting point for the negotiation, and that to me is the true and undisputed mark of a buyer’s agent who has her client’s interests at heart.  When the time came to make our offer, rather than pushing us into the deal, Yvonne took the time to go with us through all the negatives the house had.  She wanted to make sure that we (a) thoroghly understood these negatives and (b) we were comfortable with them. Once again, this was a truly exceptional proof of her objectivity and professional integrity.

- Radu & Ana Bacioiu


“She always listened to what we wanted.”

Yvonne was always available and worked around our schedule…She always listened to what we wanted and found homes that met our basic criteria. Even so, frustrating to us, for quite a while, there were no homes that we liked enough to offer on. However, Yvonne never gave up hope and was always patient and willing to give her time. Above all, our realtor has exceptional integrity…We always trusted her and it was clear that she was always looking out for our best interest, not her own interest in just making the sale. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great realtor.

- Lt. Col. & Mrs. Monbouquette, USMC
