After nine years working in the golf industry, I obtained my real estate salesperson license in 1993 and my real estate broker’s license in 2001. Born and raised on the Big Island, I graduated from Waiakea High School and the University of Hawaii at Hilo with a Bachelor of Business Administration Degree.
As one of the founding members of the National Association of Residential Property Managers (NARPM) East Hawaii Chapter, I have served as it’s Vice-President since the chapter began in 2008. I’m also a member of the Hawaii Island Portuguese Chamber Commerce and Hui Okinawa.

After high School I attended Big Island School of Hair Designs and received by Cosmetology License, worked in the beauty business for a while and then decided to move on to the Professional Business Field.
While working my way up the ladder I found my success and goal in life. I received my Real Estate License in 1994 and have been specializing in Property Management since. I’m blessed with my husband and two sons. My oldest son is currently serving in the U.S. Navy and my second son is attending Waiakea High School and wants to follow his brother footsteps soon and join the Military.
Believing in what you represent as a Property Manager comes from your Puuwai “Heart”.
Enjoying my younger years in Southern California, I attended School in Santa Monica and moved north to the bay area to work as a Regional Manager for a large insurance company for 21 years. My job relocated me to Washington State in the 90’s where I decided to change careers to sell Real Estate, winning first place team award in 2005 and sold property there for ten years. I moved to the Big Island in late 2008 and became licensed in the state of Hawaii. Living and working in Hilo is a dream come true.
I pride myself in being a professional and following the code of ethics to provide the best service I can for my clients. I am experienced and hard working. I love what I do, and hopefully I can pass this passion on to you.
I was born and raised in Hilo and graduated from Hilo High School. I earned my Bachelor of Arts Degree (magna cum laude) in Journalism and Mass Communication from Drake University, then moved to San Francisco, where I enjoyed successful careers in the music business and massage therapy. After 25 years in the Bay Area, I returned to Hilo in 2017 to launch my new career in real estate.
I am a member of the Japanese Community Association of Hawaii, the Hawaii Island Chamber of Commerce, and the Japanese Chamber of Commerce. I enjoy travel, cooking (and eating), photography, exercise and baseball. I‘ve always been passionate about helping people, and I’m excited to assist fellow Big Islanders in turning their home ownership dreams into reality.
Originally from O‘ahu, Ketura moved to the Big Island to play volleyball as a Scholar-Athlete for UH Hilo. After college, yet still unsure of her career path, she took an interest in real estate and inevitably, became a part of the industry that she had been exposed to early on, by her family. Ketura’s father was a prominent, condominium developer and her older sister, formerly a mortgage broker, now owns a boutique real estate firm. Ketura began her real estate career in 1999 when she landed a hybrid role as a Realtor Salesperson/Office Manager with a Hilo-based national franchise. In 2004, she accepted a position as an Account Manager with a local title and escrow company, and in 2010 was promoted to Branch Manager. Ketura brings her broad real estate experience to Property Professionals Hawaii with enthusiasm and understanding. In her free time, Ketura enjoys going to the beach, camping, crafting, and watching her children compete in baseball, basketball, and gymnastics.
Born and raised in the Midwest (Wisconsin & Illinois), I have spent my adult years in Texas (Houston & Austin), Colorado (Denver), and finally found my way to Hawaii (Hilo) in 2007. As my wanderings might indicate, I enjoy exploring different cultures and locales.
I studied at University of Houston graduating with a degree in Anthropology, later adding a certification in Secondary Education. My teaching career spanned 15 years teaching in Middle/High/Alternative Schools, Austin Community College and even at a County Correctional Facility. In addition to working in the education field, I spent 8 years working in the social work field with individuals with disabilities. I have taken all the lessons learned from my diverse background, and in 2013 transitioned to my current profession as a REALTOR.
Real Estate was always an interest of mine, as I enjoyed buying and fixing up properties. Now I am thrilled to assist others as they search for that perfect property whether it be an investment or that special place to call home. I always strive to provide the best service to clients with honesty, integrity, and competence.
Made in Hawaii, I‘m a Big Island native and a Hilo High Alumni. I’m and Arts and Science major.
Raised on the Big Island I have learned the meaning of Aloha. This is why I take great pride in maintaining the highest degree of integrity, knowing about Hawaii real estate and sharing my love and knowledge of this island with my clients.
