“Owning a home is keystone of wealth… both financial affluence and emotional security.” – Suze Orman

As a world traveler and financially savvy individual, I want to help you to realize the opportunities in home ownership for yourself and your family. I specialize in working with first time home buyers, investors, and the selling of Hawaii real estate. You can trust that my personal and professional experience will help positively guide you through any real estate situation.

I grew up on the Windward side of Oahu and Graduated from Kailua High School with honors. I attended Hawaii Pacific University on a full ride scholarship where I received my Bachelors degree in Entrepreneurial Studies. Upon the completion of my course work I moved to San Diego and pursued a career in retail at Nordstrom. After consistently being amongst the top 5 sales people at one of the highest volume stores in the country, I decided to take a break and travel. Three years and 27 countries later I found myself back in my favorite place in the world, Hawaii. Not wanting to return to retail to help people satisfy their material wants, I decided to shift gears and help families invest their money and help individuals build wealth through real estate. This is where my love for real estate began.

After many years abroad, I moved back to Oahu in the Fall of 2014 to settle down and focus on my career. It didn’t take long for my entrepreneurial spirit and passion for helping others to fuel my decision to join the Locations ohana in 2015.

Coming from a middle income family, I know the sacrifices my parents made to just barely get by here in Hawaii. Thankfully my mother started early and purchased her first condo when she was just 20 years old. Interest rates were at an all-time high of 17.5% and making such a large purchase terrified her. She managed to continually make her monthly mortgage payments and after a few years, sell that condo and purchase a single family home on Kauai where I was born.  Many years later my mother and father live comfortably in a large Kailua home with an attached rental that provides some extra income and has allowed my dad to retire. It’s stories like theirs that really inspire me to help families like my own purchase their first, second or even fifth property and build wealth for themselves and their families.

Motivated by helping Hawaii families like my own I will help you make your real estate goals a reality. My clients benefit from my creativity, dependability, and professional service. I believe no two clients are the same and as such every client receives the personalized experience they deserve.



Find the home of your dreams

"Can't wait to buy our next home with Kayla!"
Preston & Oranna N.

"Kayla went above and beyond to help us purchase our very first home. She was extremely patient and worked with our budget and what we were looking for. We were able to purchase home instead of a townhouse on the windward side which is where we wanted. She still checks on us from time to time to see how we are doing and how are renovations are going. She is smart, kind, honest and hard working. I would strongly recommend her and will definitely use her in the future!"
Bobbie-Jo R. & James H.

My first-time home buying experience with LocationsHawaii was amazing. Ms. Kayla Ueki is a competent professional who takes her fiduciary duties very seriously. She is proud of her past achievements, yet always keeps a humble demeanor- for me the personality matters. She has worked tirelessly, even on weekends, to find us the home that we loved. Her pleasant, cheerful personality and her firsthand knowledge of Oahu made our buying experience not only fruitful, but actually quite enjoyable as well. Locations Hawaii has one of the best, if not “the best,” real estate listing websites for Hawaii. Through her comprehensive website, we could find potential homes with searches tailored to our preferences. Once we shortlisted our prospective homes, she analyzed not only the fairness of asking price, but also provided practical tips such as how walkable, or culturally rich, or noisy is the area. Being technology savvy, she managed to get everything done remotely by showing the homes on FaceTime and signing documents via DocuSign. She patiently answered all of my questions in a very short notice (very important for me), and kept the home-buying process transparent. Therefore, we were able to make an informed decision, finish all the paperwork, and buy the house before setting foot in Hawaii.
