As an active Realtor since 1999, my real estate experience is enhanced by my island heritage. I am a 5th-generation resident in this beautiful state, where aloha is not just a greeting but a way of life. Having lived on Maui, Kauai, Oahu and Hawaii islands, I know each for its coastlines, mountain ranges and tropical hot spots.

Having sold property from Waimea to Honokaa, Volcano to Hilo and the west coast of the Big Island, I am well-versed in the sale and acquisition of residential homes, vacant land properties, and condominium purchase. I blend persistence, exceptional service, professionalism and knowledge of the "Hawaiian way of living" into every transaction.

If you are a buyer, I will lead you through the qualification process, diligently help you search for the right property, write a contract that addresses your needs and wants, and follow it through to a successful closing.

For sellers, you & I will determine the "right" price that will sell your property as quickly as possible. I will market your property through Clark Realty throughout the world via the web, as well as locally to ensure we will find the right buyer in this challenging market.

Whether you need a persistent agent to sell your home in this challenging market, or you need help to find and secure your dream home or property, I have the experience and the aloha to help.



I’ve known Nalani Hance for probably 5 years now. She has worked tirelessly and effectively as our realtor in selling properties on the Big Island. Nalani takes it upon herself to take care of all the details, no matter how small or large. She has taken numerous trips to the County Planning Office and has placed many calls to people, such as surveyors, lawyers, planners, Helco, or fellow realtors, related to the selling of our properties. She will bird dog matters on our behalf, without being asked. She takes the initiative to go out of her way to make sure everything is done correctly. I would say she’s the consummate realtor that goes the extra mile to please her clients. Nalani is No Ka Oi, and I consider her a true friend.  Alden Woo

Selling a house in Hawaii while living in Florida can be very complicated. Nalani went far above and beyond what you would expect from a real estate agent. She was always available and responded immediately every step of the way. Her combination of knowledge, professionalism and Ohana spirit made the sale a great experience. We give her our highest recommendation. The Nielsen’s

Four years after buying our first house and property in Ahualoa, we continue to feel we were so fortunate to have found Nalani Hance, now our neighbor and fellow member of Community Association and Neighborhood Watch teams! My husband, a photographer, was drawn to her listings by the quality photography, hard to get inspired without decent, well-lit images! Before my first visit to the property, Nalani helped me clarify what we were looking for in our big switch from city living to country life. There was a lot to understand about island living, and I felt Nalani was always patient with my endless questions. Despite her busy schedule, she was realistic and practical, and able to help us recognize potential not immediately apparent to us. I’ll never forget that she hiked the property with me in the drizzle to get a better feel of the land and views around it! As we continue to remodel and dream, we often check in with Nalani for her ideas and guidance, and we’re doubly delighted to now enjoy her friendship over the years! If we ever consider moving or expanding, there’s no question she’d be our go-to Realty resource person! Aloha, Francine Roby

“We lucked out and found Nalani Hance.  Nalani walked this transaction through from beginning to end, ensuring that the various hold-ups and tangles we encountered were addressed promptly and with our interests in mind.  Nalani is an absolutely genuine individual who is not out for the quick sale, but rather to build a return client, goodwill and in our case a friendship.”

‐ Bill & Jennifer Godby


“Nalani’s best attributes are her ability to actually listen to her clients without preconception, her persistence, her diligence, and her knowledge of the local environment. We found her to be far more helpful than any other Realtor we have experienced, and have come to regard her as a friend, rather than just a Realtor we once used.”



‐ Bill Robertson


“While working through our [3 separate] transactions, there was never any doubt that you had our best interests in mind. The real estate market here in Hawaii is dynamic, in spite of that, you always remained ‘ahead of the game’ and very knowledgeable of the marketplace. Should I ever need to complete another real estate transaction, you will be the only one I call.”

‐ Mark Crawford


“I want to thank you for putting me in touch with Nalani Hance to help me look for property on the Big Island.  Our search began in Volcano, moved to the Hamakua coast, and ended in Waimea. Whatever the area, her knowledge of neighborhoods, microclimates, zoning, views, and properties was invaluable. Her organization of appointments and her research made the decision-making process much easier.”

‐ Kathy Boswell


“…[Nalani] was very persistent in finding us just what we wanted.  We live in Austin, Texas, and she made sure to keep us in the loop…Now we own a great 7.5 acres we plan to build on… loads of thanks to her for staying with us even though we live in Texas…our dreams of owning have come true thanks to Nalani.”

‐ Sam & Paige Wilburn


“I just wanted to send you a letter telling you how much I appreciated all of your help in obtaining my dream ‘Big Island’ property.…your expertise of Hawaii was invaluable. I guess it really helps if you were born and raised in the islands…your grasp of the culture, beliefs and topography of the island is quite impressive. You are the best!  I will refer friends and family to you for any future business.”

‐ Les Miller


“I would like to give kudos to Nalani for helping me purchase a number of residential properties. Nalani held my hand and showed me vacant land to commercial properties and everything in between. Nalani is very tenacious and will find the right property for you. One satisfied customer.”

‐ Wayne Umlauf


We have used Nalani for both the purchase of our current home and the sale of our previous one. She has been aggressive and energetic at all times and was instrumental in the difficult sale of our last home. She was always friendly and professional and kept us well informed of any progress on a daily basis. Nalani was there for us every step of the way. We would highly recommend her to anyone seeking an outstanding real estate agent.
