Since 2003, Grant Kapono Kanoho has made it his focal point to build a real estate career forged upon strong and enduring personal relationships. Being involved with and caring for the personal & business interests of his clients is everything to Kapono and his passion in doing so has truly made a difference for his clientele.
Upon his graduation from the Kamehameha Schools in 1997 and the University of San Francisco in 2002, Grant returned home to Oahu to be closer to the family and friends he had left behind. As fate would have it, he landed a position as a personal assistant in a local real estate firm, where both of his parents were employed as Realtors. And the rest, as they say, is history.
In 2015, I was blessed to be honored with two incredible achievements – taking 2nd place in the Honolulu Star Advertiser’s “Hawaii’s Best Realtor” category, and once again being named as an Aloha Aina nominee for outstanding service in the real estate field. To be recognized by my peers and clientele is an amazing & humbling feeling – and I sincerely thank all of you for the support throughout the years! My beautiful wife Dawn continues to teach 4th grade at Momilani Elementary School, which recently regained its status as the number 1 public elementary school in the state! Emma, age 7, is doing well as a 2nd grader also at Momilani, and loves to spend her time reading and drawing. Our youngest, Eligh, continues to exhaust us like a typical 2 year-old will do, spending all of his time fascinated with cars, planes and anything else with an engine! We are also proud to announce that our 3rd child is on the way, with Dawn expecting in May of this year! Needless to say, God has been good and continues to bless our family!
