Cheyanne LoBue (RS-81929)
Aloha! My name is Cheyanne LoBue. Thank you so much for the opportunity to work with you as your Hawaii Real Estate Agent.
My promise to you as my client(s): My #1 goal is to find the perfect property for you and to make the home buying process as smooth and stress-free as possible. I am confident, in control, and handle all parties involved with the utmost professionalism and respect. I will give you my care, loyalty, honesty, obedience, and my ALL. I will work hard throughout the entire process to get the best overall outcome and experience. I am a tough negotiator, I am upfront and very honest, I have a great eye, and I think outside of the box. Let me put my experience, skills, and abilities to work for you!
A little background about me: I've been married for eighteen years and we have 4 children. Initially, I had a career in the investment industry, before becoming a stay home mom. Once our children were a little older, I decided to start a career in real estate and it has been a fantastic career that offered me the flexibility to still be an active mother while being able to work for hand and hand with my clients. It is a perfect fit and a win-win situation for everyone. Real estate has come very naturally to me because I love working with people and helping them achieve the American Dream of homeownership.
My family and I absolutely love living in Hawaii! There's no place in the world quite like it and we are so glad we took the leap moving here. We love the people, beaches, hikes, waterfalls, mountains, rainbows, the lifestyle, and of course the weather.
I'd love to help you live in paradise and own a piece of Hawaii!

Derek Okahashi (RS-82017)
Derek Okahashi is as passionate about real estate as they come. He has a thorough and analytical approach to buying, selling, and investing that he uses to accomplish his clients’ best outcome. Along with constant communication, proven systems, and a rarely paralleled work ethic, Derek delivers positive results for his clients and continues to be a resource long after they have executed the transaction.
As a U.S. Coast Guard veteran, Derek worked in maritime law inspecting and examining shipboard operations on foreign vessels. In his previous scope of practice, if mistakes were found or laws violated, industry partners could stand to lose millions of dollars and even face imprisonment. In his mid-20’s, Derek was already leading teams of inspectors that were sometimes decades his senior. This attention to detail translates to and is invaluable in the real estate transaction. The stakes in real estate can be just as high and Derek brings both the professionalism and creativeness needed to be successful in helping clients.
In addition to his experience in the Coast Guard, Derek has earned his Bachelor’s in Business Administration, served on multiple committees as a clinical instructor at Stanford Children’s Hospital, he has built businesses, and is also a real estate investor. He negotiated the sale of one of his businesses to five times what an ivy league business consultant told him it was worth. Derek has more professional experience than many people twice his age and he brings his diverse background to you, the client, to deliver in every phase of the real estate process.
Currently, Derek is a full-time Realtor partnered with RE/MAX Aloha Homes, a husband, a father of two boys, and a proud son. His hobbies include surfing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, morning video chats with his father, and enjoying raising his family in Hawaii.
“I truly appreciate you taking the time to learn a little about me. I am just a family man that is tirelessly committed to growth and helping people. Ever since I was a teenager I knew that I would be helping in some way when I grew up. Helping people achieve their goals, build wealth, and being a professional resource brings me a ton of gratitude. Thank you for trusting me to serve you and contribute to The Children’s Miracle Network in the process.” - Derek Okahashi
Q: What is something weird/funny about you?
A: I was born in Florida, mostly raised in Hawaii, stationed back on the mainland in the U.S.C.G., then moved home to Oahu again to settle and raise my boys. With such varied experience, I have a couple of accents that end up mixing with my local Hawaii accent depending on who I am talking to. I don’t mean to, it just kind of happens.
I also like to sing but my family insists I stick to playing the ukulele and not singing!
Raeni Escue (RS-83025)
For Raeni, buying, selling, and investing in residential real estate is more than a business transaction. It is a bold, incisive decision towards building your wealth and safeguarding the future for generations to come. While the home buying and selling process can be challenging, especially for new homeowners, Raeni makes her clients' interests her prime priority. She works to ensure they meet their real estate goals, all the while making the process as easy and hassle-free as possible.
Having grown up in Indonesia, and later moving to the United States, Raeni experienced first-hand the struggles that people experience when buying or selling their homes. This motivated her to make the real estate processes easier. Furthermore, she is bilingual, fluent in both Indonesian and English, which enables her to serve clients from different geographical and cultural divides the very best.
When she isn’t making homeownership dreams come true for her clients, Raeni loves engaging in portrait photography and playing musical instruments. Spending time together with her friends and family is never something Raeni takes for granted.

My name is Tharranne "Thar" McCue. I was born and raised in Hawaii on the island of Oahu. I spent most of my life growing up on Oahu's Westside - Makakilo / Kapolei and Ewa Beach. I raised all of my children in Makakilo / Kapolei. So I've witnessed Kapolei develop into what it has become today - From sugarcane fields to Oahu's 2nd City. I lived in the Philippines for 18 months as a youth. Yes, I am Filipino. I am also Japanese and Caucasian. Being from Hawaii - It's pretty common to have family and friends with mixed ethnicities, as I have. I also lived in Wahiawa / Mililani and Waikiki briefly as a youth.
Having the "Aloha" spirit has always come naturally to me. My very friendly and humble personality has allowed me to get along with everyone I have come across. The one thing I have learned in my Real Estate business is - To be a great listener. I take the time to truly understand
my client's goals in life and in Real Estate. I have been so blessed to have met and helped so many individuals and families create or enhance the lifestyle that they desired thru Real Estate. I have over 27 years of experience in Sales and Customer Service; 20 of those years include Real Estate Sales. I have also worked in the Tourism Industry for over 7 years, which has given me the opportunity to work with a diversified amount of people from all over the world. Coming from a mixed ethnicity has allowed me to experience many different cultures growing up. So working with a diverse amount of people from all over the world comes very easily for me. In this fast and competitive market, it’s important to work with an experienced Agent with great negotiating skills. I take the time to truly listen and understand the motivation and reasons my clients want to buy, sell, or invest. This helps me to better negotiate on their behalf. Negotiating includes developing a good rapport with the other Agent and understanding their client's motivation to buy or sell.
I am a very honest Agent, who always puts my client’s best interest forward at all times. I will give you my honest opinion and advice, even if it means I won't be able to make a sale. Making a sale is not my priority, especially if it isn't helping my clients improve or enhance their lives or lifestyle. Being a Homeowner is a great accomplishment. For most people - Purchasing a home is the biggest investment they will ever make in their lives. I love being a part of helping individuals and families accomplish that.
Contact me for a “FREE” consultation, whether you’re buying, selling, or investing in Hawaii. I will provide you all the Real Estate information you need in order to make an informed decision regarding your Real Estate Goals. There is no obligation and you have nothing to lose, just knowledge to gain about the current Real Estate Market.
