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.

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.

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.

“Changing lives one home at a time!!”
I am your real estate connect! No matter if you’re buying or selling; I am your connection to the best real estate in Hawaii. Let me tell you why…
I’m originally from Alabama but raised across the United States. I’ve experienced many cultures over the years, and it has brought me so much joy. I was born into army life and married into it as well. My husband is an officer in the United States Army. Moving around so much is what initially began my passion for real estate because one thing we always needed was a home! We’ve bought many homes and sold them as well. So, I truly understand how important buying or selling a home for my clients really is and I’m with them every step of the way!!
Before becoming a licensed realtor, I finished my Bachelor’s in Business Administration in 2009 and I was a Negotiations Analyst for one of the top healthcare companies for 6 years. Turns out that position created a seamless transition into real estate. I will close a deal that benefits my client’s needs. So, when my husband received orders to Hawaii the journey began!
March 2018, we got to the island and I fell in love! It was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen. I decided at that moment I was turning my passion into reality. I went to Inet Realty Hawaii School of real estate and I became a licensed realtor in January 2019.
I feel so blessed to be living in Hawaii with my husband and 2 kids. We enjoy finding new places to eat, hiking trails through the island, spending time at the beach, and hanging out with friends. I also enjoy connecting with people on social media, other military families, and spending time learning more about Hawaiian culture!
Life for me is service to my community with attention to detail and excellent customer satisfaction. I’m a member of SIGMA GAMMA RHO SORORITY INC AND HUI ‘O NA WAHINE. Now I can’t wait to be of service to you for all your real estate needs!
