Lei De Gracia Oakes was born in Manila, Philippines and was raised and educated in Hawaii. After working in the legal and financial profession for 15 years, Lei decided to become a REALTOR-ASSOCIATE® in 2003. Since joining Mary Worrall Associates Sotheby's International Realty, Lei has become known for her attention to detail and her commitment to client service. In her first year with the firm, Lei earned Rookie of the Year honors as its top new agent. Her continued dedication and superior service earned her a spot as one of Mary Worrall Associates Sotheby's International Realty's top producers in 2006, accompanied by a nomination for the Aloha Aina Realtor Awards. What Lei enjoys most about being a Realtor are the challenges she faces in finding that "special" home for her clients or in putting together a marketing program just right for a unique property. She has an abundant source of positive energy and this is apparent in the way she interacts with her clients as well as the other agents she works with. Lei is always happy to help others and is always willing to go the extra mile to make sure her clients' needs are taken care of. Lei is a devoted mother of three children. She is a member of Word of Life Christian Center and enjoys spending time with her family and numerous outdoor activities in the islands.
