Get to know Grace Hanamoto
For 25 years, I have worked in the real estate industry, first, as a homeowners association manager and then as a real estate marketing specialist. I have owned and operated a successful business for more than 20 years. Originally, my background and training was in the public accounting field, but after two tax seasons and over 500 tax returns, I returned to my first interest--real estate. During these years, I've worked as an association manager overseeing over 3000 homes and condominiums, and have managed large scale construction projects and have coordinated improvements that increased the aesthetics and saleability of the home and the community. My varied experience has also included co-authoring a book with attorney John Paul Hanna called "Homeowners Associations: A Guide to Leadership." I take pride and great joy in working with my clients--helping them navigate toward financially sound real estate purchases.

For as long as I can remember, I've loved looking at and visiting homes. In the beginning, it was simply the fascination of the huge number of layouts and plans available, but as I've matured, my fascination has focused to the potential of a home from both an investment as well as a practical abode for my clients. Although my degree and training is in accounting, even at the height of tax season, I can always remember finding time to visit open houses on weekends. So it is only natural that my skill as an accountant, my property aesthetic and my love of homes should combine in my career as a real estate professional.
For the past 25 years, I have worked and consulted with homeowners associations where I have honed my experience as a first-class customer service representative. I have managed both small- and large-scale construction and improvement projects and have learned how to improve property on almost any budget. During a brief period when I pursued my masters degree, I also worked with a law office and was given a rare opportunity to see, first hand, how a large number of homes are designed, approved by the City, constructed, and sold. As an agent, I'll bring my unique understanding of construction, home sales, home staging, property values and budgeting to bear for the benefit of my clients.
