Sachiko brings a bicultural perspective to her work, enabling clients from Hawaii, the U.S. mainland and Asia to work comfortably with her. Born and raised in Osaka, Japan. Sachiko earned a BA in English Literature from Kobe College, one of the Japan's oldest colleges for women.
After graduation, Sachiko joined the reservations and sales team at Cathay Pacific Airways, one of Asia's leading airlines. Her strong instincts for customer service soon got her promoted to reservations instructor for travel agencies. She then came to Hawaii to study for a Master's Degree in Human Resource Management at Hawaii Pacific University.

The Ala Moana Hotel Condominium is the largest condominium conversion project in the state of Hawaii, and she is very proud that she worked on the project as one of the only 4 sales team members.
She moved back to general brokerage in 2007, and has been helping buyers and sellers in wider areas including Waikele, Mililani, Kaneohe and Kailua.
