Bill Chee

Bill Chee

Founder, Executive Advisor

Bill Chee founded Locations LLC in 1969 at the age of 24 with two partners. He launched Hawaii’s first database of real estate sales information as a sales tool and the business grew exponentially. By the late 1970s, Locations acquired the first computer system in the business and began creating an even larger database.

As president of the National Association of REALTORS® in 1993, he gave an iconic, prophetic speech that sounded a national alarm about how internet companies and technology would radically change the real estate business – “The Hungry Lions Are Coming Over the Hill”. His forward thinking strategy and vision allowed Locations to thrive at a time when many real estate businesses were struggling to adjust to the internet age.

As Executive Advisor, Bill remains a driving force behind the company’s continued success. He continues to inspire a new generation of leaders that will carry on the company’s legacy of innovation.

He currently serves on the Board of Directors for Hawaii National Bank. Bill has also served as the president of the Honolulu Board of REALTORS® and Hawaii Association of REALTORS® in 1976. In 1993, Bill was elected the youngest president of the National Association of REALTORS®. His past community involvement includes serving on the board of directors for Home Financial Services and CB Commercial Group Hawaii and as a trustee for the University of Hawaii Foundation.
