Get to know Kimi Correa, R | SRS | ABR | MRP | CRS
Kimi Correa’s expertise in residential real estate has been honed through a lifetime’s career of detailed customer service, listening and understanding what clients need, and doing whatever’s necessary to deliver success, while always doing the right thing. A self-confessed over-achiever (a label friends and family confirm) Kimi grew up in South Florida working her way up the ladder at the local supermarket rather than lounging at the beach after school like most of her friends. When love and the promise of surf called, she headed cross-country, then across an ocean to find paradise. While the surf never caught on – perhaps because her first outing ended in a wipe-out that left her kissing coral – her heart immediately put down roots in the tradewinds and culture and lifestyle that Hawaii embodies. When raising her young son, she stepped out of the 9-5 world, preferring instead to found and run a successful day care business– not one that followed the status quo, but one with full curriculum, field trips, and standards of excellence. When friends and family turned to her to care for their personal homes, she jumped on-board, got her real estate license, and provided property management services. Now, with her son grown, she’s doing what she loves most – connecting people with the right home and the right opportunity.
Kimi launched her real estate sales career with a bang, successfully connecting a global celebrity with the perfect east Oahu home. She hasn’t slowed down since. While she calls Kailua home and specializes in Windward Oahu, she’s a savvy agent across the state, closing transactions all over Oahu, from Waikiki to the North Shore, as well as on the outer islands. Kimi doesn’t believe in “cookie cutter” deals, approaching each client where they are and making sure to engage state of art marketing tools, social media, and attention to the tiniest details to ensure her client’s experience is seamless. She’s a member of the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the Hawaii Association of Realtors (HAR), and The Honolulu Board of Realtors (HBR). She also holds accreditations as a Buyer’s Representative (ABR), Military Relocation Professional (MRP), Certified Residential Specialist ( CRS), and as a Seller Representative Specialist (SRS). Kimi’s mantra: “I believe in God, telling the truth, hard work, and doing what’s right.”
Kimi’s husband Doug says she goes the extra mile. Her clients say she goes as many miles as it takes, and then an extra one. “She’s a fire spirit that never stops . . . It was always Kimi to the rescue!” “ Grounded, trustworthy and a real genuine person!” After another successful transaction, one client wrote, “Your work was exceptional, not just as my agent but as my friend. You were tireless and thorough and always pleasant, which is not what I’d say about myself.”
For Kimi, it’s what she does, and she loves it.

Testimonials for Kimi Correa, R | SRS | ABR | MRP | CRS
Kimi has been even more than everything we were looking for in a real estate agent. Our bar was set high because we were buying a home in Kailua while still in California. We wanted someone who is not only business savvy, knows the housing market well, but also one who is pleasant to interact with. Kimi is not only pleasant in her genuine sweet voice, but she really cares in advising us in decision-making that are beneficial to us, very ethical, always get back to us right away when we have something to discuss with her (like no other agent we've experienced working with, and we've worked with 4 other agents in the past), and we never felt judged or uncomfortable with her for any reason. I don't know how she manages to be so focused and dedicated when she works on our case, as if we are her only clients! We met as strangers 3 months ago and now we call her our friend.
My fiancee and I have been so pleasantly surprised and appreciative of Kimi and her wonderful advice, guidance, and support along the way as well prepare to move into our new home together. Kimi provided advice as we navigated through the process of making an offer and what we needed to complete to be on track. Her guidance throughout the entire process was genuine and made us feel so comfortable and confident. But, her support for us, as I had a medical condition in the middle of getting ready to close, set her apart from others. She helped in ways that were above and beyond what she was suppose to do for us, and that made me really appreciate all that she has done. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone!
Kimi is an amazing agent. She helped us prepare and sell our Kailua home better than we ever expected. The whole experience went smoothly because of her professional expertise and attention to detail. We received multiple offers above asking price open house weekend. Once in contract she was very attentive throughout the escrow process and ensured any issues were resolved quickly and correctly. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in Hawaii.
Kimi goes way above and beyond her job to help her clients. From helping clean our house, to transporting our dogs, Kimi is not afraid to help out in any way to show that she truly cares. Kimi is very knowledgable in her field and works diligently at making sure we always had the information we needed in a timely manner. I am extremely pleased after working with Kimi, and I highly recommend her as a realtor!
Kimi assisted us in selling our townhouse in Hawaii Kai under adverse conditions. Kimi was very patient and understanding with our personal issues. Kimi followed through with her promises and at times went above and beyond her duties as an agent. Kimi is very knowledgeable in the real estate field and has the resources to complete every aspect of the sale. I would highly recommend Kimi to anyone selling or buying property. Mahalo Kimi for your help!!!
Kimi was great. She was super patient while we searched for a house over the course of 8 months. When we found one that interested us, she was quick to get us a showing. When we choose one, she made sure everything was taken care of and was very patient with us as first time home buyers. I'd use her to buy/sell a house again.
Kimi is a realtor who knows her "stuff." Her insights regarding the upgrades that my home needed as well as her expertise in "staging" my home enabled my spouse and I to sell our family home with relative ease. In addition, Kimi is easy to relate to and provides the seller with more than ample info regarding the sale of a home.
Kimi Correa was extremely professional and knowledgeable from our first meeting. She demonstrated a lot of patience as she dealt with our issues with each house that she showed us.
When we finally put it an offer on a house, she went out of her way to protect us as the buyer. We are now in our dream home and we feel that we have a friend for life.
Thank you very much!
She is a fire spirit that never stops. Always answered questions in a timely manner, if it took time we knew we could trust that she was investigating all possible scenarios. Wonderful to work with, I would highly recommend her with confidence.
Over all great experience. Smoothe process and highly recommended. Complete confidence in her while buying my house. Good communication and cooperation.
