The Dream Building
Often times, our clients are either relocating or PCSing from the mainland or buying a second home to enjoy the island lifestyle. Our experience of relocating often ourselves, helps us cater to the needs of this special group of people. We have been where you are right now: researching, inquiring, and seeking out the perfect home. We know what types of questions you are going to have, as we have had them many times ourselves. With this in mind, we have created our website to help you find those answers and point you in the right direction.
Our inspiration is drawn from a desire to help our clients fall in love with Oahu, just like we have, and help them understand the pros and cons of owning a home in Hawaii. We recognize each family’s special situation and are here to help you discover if buying or renting is in your best interest.
As a team, we are dedicated to creating the very best experience for our clients with the highest level of service. We never stop improving, and will continue to expand our offerings based on how we can best serve the island of Oahu. Get in touch with us today to learn how Island Living Homes can help you.

Melissa brings to the Island Living Homes Ohana a lot of experience in real estate, particularly from the perspective of a home buyer. As a Navy family, the Lunas moved often, 8 times if anyone is keeping track, and Melissa found herself going from her first home purchase… to her fourth! Each move simply reaffirmed for her that “home is where the heart is” and yet, finding the RIGHT place to call home is so important in helping bring joy and comfort to a family.
