Jennifer Li



Diamond Head Office 614 Kapahulu Avenue, Suite 200Honolulu, HI 96815

Born and raised in Honolulu, Jennifer Li is a local girl at heart. She enjoys water sports, socializing with friends and family, traveling and loves dogs. She is able to speak Chinese-Cantonese fluently. Jennifer's passion is real estate. As a child, she always dreamed of living the American Dream of owning a big house with a yard to entertain. Jennifer has channeled that dream into a real estate career – helping families achieve their goals. 

Jennifer attended McKinley High School and graduated shortly after with a Finance Degree from University of Hawaii at Manoa. She has seen Oahu grow over the past 20 years and is an expert on her neighborhood. Prior to her real estate career, Jennifer spent 5 years in the banking and lending industry. During those years she learned to process mortgages, giving her an upper hand now as a Realtor.

Jennifer kicked off her real estate career with Keller Williams Honolulu in 2016 as a full-time Realtor-Associate. She joined Locations in 2018 with a desire for growth to continue helping her clients meet their real estate needs. Having the support and resources of one of Hawaii’s highest producing real estate firms, allows her to provide top service to her clients. Within her first year at Locations, she was recognized with the Master's Circle and Client Service Awards, and nominated by her own clients for the Aloha ‘?ina Realtor ® Awards.  She’s very excited to share her knowledge with anyone she meets and strives to make all her experiences with her clients fun, rewarding and most importantly stress free.

When not selling homes, Jennifer is currently serving as Secretary and Administrative Committee Chair of the Rotary E-Club of Hawaii. She enjoys giving back to her community and participating in projects that improve the lives of people, not only in Hawaii but across the globe.


She was very patient with us as we struggled to search to find a home for over a year. The homes she suggested were true to our budget and she didn't try to over-sell or downplay a property. When we finally found a home, she helped us to feel comfortable with the jargon by meeting with us to discuss the contract. Her banking history also gives her insight into the mortgage process and helped to facilitate work between our lender and title agency. Her warm and welcoming demeanor make her easy to work with and this was seen in the smooth transaction between lender, title agency and the seller's agent.

Jennifer Li helped to sell my husband’s townhome in Hawaii. If anyone is familiar with the market there, it’s tough because it’s an expensive state and we were worried about the timeline to sell the home and getting a qualified buyer for the price we wanted, in as little time as possible. Jennifer came to our rescue, she went to work for us and got all the necessary paperwork we needed. She staged the home for us and set up showings. Within a couple of showings we got a few offers. She was always professional and made suggestions beforehand so we can get better value for the home. We had many questions during the process and she was always knowledgeable and resourceful at providing answers to our questions. We ran into a couple of complications with the home and being that we live in another state, Jennifer actually went out of her way to be available and to take care of the problems. She even did the shopping for our new water heater. She was very focused and provided us with the best service and communicated with us about every little detail as it came up. Jennifer exceeded our expectations and timeline and we are grateful to have received a higher offer than our original listing price. Thanks Jennifer for a job well done!

Jennifer Li is the best Real Estate Agent in the state of Hawaii. I say this with absolute pride and confidence that she too will exceed your needs. Trust is one of her greatest attributes, you can trust her with all your real estate needs; whether it’s a buyer’s representative, seller’s representative, or an unbiased intelligent real estate advice that you need. Jennifer Li will always place your interest above everything else.

I came into the market with zero knowledge searching for my first home. Luckily for me, Jennifer’s employment history in finance and banking makes her stand out from the other real estate agents. She was selfless to provide relevant guidance in satisfying all the pre-requisites of qualifying for the right loan and finding the perfect home. She has an unlimited supply of contacts, knowledge and resources to provide all your real estate needs as a one-stop-shop. She provided a finance broker who secured the lowest mortgage rate possible, the most reliable and cheapest vendors on recommended upgrades, and quality customer service regardless of the time of the day. Usually once a realtor makes a sale, they usually don’t have any obligation or commitment to you, that’s not the case with Jennifer because till this day I still contact Jennifer for advice, issues, or questions and she is quick to provide a solution.

She recommended a professional agent in conducting a thorough house inspection and upon discovering a few flaws such as the water heater, appliance defects, and carpet stains; she’s not afraid to put her foot down to obtain a credit back or discount for the buyer. For my house, it was a damaged sink dispenser and an old water heater, she was able to pursue the seller with credit and service. Even after the home was closed out, she’s still willing to go out of her way to ensure my needs are met. Extraordinary customer service is incredibly rare especially in a market with a large influx of competition. Everybody wants to be a real estate agent in Hawaii, but not everybody can be a great real estate agent like Jennifer. If you’re looking for a realtor who is willing to fight for you in terms of budget, costs, service, or making thing right, then Jennifer Li is the realtor for you.

I wouldn’t hesitate to select Jennifer again over my other friends or family members who are realtors, simply because I am confident that I will get the best deal through her and my needs and expectations will be met.

We don’t normally take the time to write reviews, but the exceptional service we have received from our Real Estate Agent, Jennifer Li of Keller Williams Honolulu, Hawaii, had compelled us to write this letter.

Professionalism, knowledge, experience, and speed are qualities anyone should consider when searching for a real estate agent. Our agent Jenn had just that and more. Jenn had represented us as a buyer agent in our recent real estate purchase transaction. Although we were not first time home buyers, this was our very first acquisition of a single family home in Honolulu, Hawaii as our new primary residence.

Over the Thanksgiving weekend of 2017, my wife and I had randomly come across an open house in the lower-punchbowl metropolitan area of Oahu. It was a brand new house, built from scratch in 2015. We knew immediately that the location and house itself would meet the needs of our current season of life. So we called Jenn to discuss this opportunity, and within 2 days, Jenn helped us in submitting our offer.

There were multiple challenges throughout the transaction that Jenn helped turn into a blessing in disguise. The first was determining an offer amount. We felt that the original listing price was too high. On top of that, the seller had already received at least 6 other offers before ours. The pressure and competition was on. After Jenn had performed some quick detailed research, and engaged in an initial discussion with the seller agent, we decided to offer $25k below the listing price. Within a short 2 hours thereafter, our offer was accepted (2 hours later that same day). One of the various hurdles we had to overcome was the appraisal. The appraisal value came out $15k lower than the executed purchase price. Our lender could only originate our mortgage loan based on the lessor of the executed purchase price or the appraisal value. We were very discouraged; thinking the door of opportunity would close. We were mentally preparing to cancel the transaction and forfeit our escrow deposit and third party fees already incurred. However, Jenn had quickly encouraged us not to give up hope. Jenn had quickly called the seller agent to discuss and negotiate. Within an hour of Jenn’s conversation, the seller had agreed to reduce the purchase price by another $15k to match the lower appraisal value. This helped in saving us an extra $7k approximately in down payment and closing costs. Overall, instead of losing money as our worst fear, Jenn helped us to save over $40k that we would have otherwise been obligated to pay.

From the beginning to end, Jenn, had guided us, and provided details every step of the transaction. Jenn did not cut any corners, and ensured the purchase agreement and paperwork were properly documented and executed to ensure our safety, protection, and best interests. We were also impressed that Jenn was able to provide an extended network of home inspectors, land surveyors, general contractors, and termite inspection companies. It was nice to know that amidst our busy schedule, Jenn was taking care of our transaction. Jenn ensured that timely communications and processes were handled efficiently and professionally.

Jenn’s love and passion for real estate and helping others truly reflects in her knowledge of the local real estate market, along with her quality of work and attention to great detail. It was evident that Jenn provides multiple options for her clients, keeping their best interests, needs, and preferences in mind. Jenn had worked hard to educate, empower, and encourage us in owning our very first single family home, which provided us the assurance and confidence of making the right decision for this season of our life in raising and growing our family. We closed on this transaction and became official title owners as of Thursday January 11, 2018 and we are very happy with our new home.

Again, we are truly grateful for the professional guidance and assistance from Jennifer Li. If you are searching for that “right” real estate agent, close out all those other websites, look no further, and call Jenn Li at 808-382-8806.
