I was a realtor in California for 5 years. I moved to Waikiki almost 2 years ago and worked at a school with children. I recently decided to go back into real estate in Waikiki. I love living in Waikiki. I was happy that I only had to take a test of 50 questions because my experience in California. They did not tell you how different real estate is in Hawaii and how much you have to learn to pass the 50 question test. I used Hawaiiexamcram.com and proschools.com. I studied alot. I also want to thank John Connelly who runs a real estate school and gave me some tips without attending the school. I had to submit an application and proof of experience before taking the test. It took several weeks to get my paperwork back from the Hawaii Department of Real Estate that I could qualify to take the test. I then scheduled the test. The tests are run by a private testing company so they are very tricky and challenging. When I was fortunate to pass, I had to submit more paperwork to the Department of Real Estate and wait 10 days for my license to arrive. During the 10 days, I interviewed with several companies. I was happy to find Waikiki Real Estate Inc. I was used to a team and small office in La Quinta, California, so I felt compfortable with an office with alot of floor time and walk ups. My broker is supportive and helpful. The meetings are fun and informative. I just have my first client so I am excited to move forward with a transaction. It feels good to be back in the real estate business.
