Christina Laney Mitre
Smart Living Hawaii, Owner, Founder and Blogger
Christina Laney Mitre joined Elite Pacific Properties for its integrity, innovation and growth in real estate industry and sales. A true Kama’aina, Christina has a great appreciation of Hawaii and its beauty which surrounds her. Christina is an alumni of Roosevelt High School here in Honolulu and a graduate of Whittier College with a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration and an emphasis in International Business. Her first employer was the Salvation Army in Los Angeles, California working with under privileged youth in South Central Los Angeles. This job opportunity which was quite challenging has given her a deeper understanding of the world we live in and has opened her heart to those less fortunate.
Christina returned to the Hawaiian Islands in 2003, then became absorbed in the beauty of Hawaii and the realization of wonderful opportunities Hawaii has to offer. Her experiences as a concierge for a five-star resort and a server for a large restaurant chain helped develop excellent service skills and a true understanding of giving premiere service to her customers. Christina discovered the importance of building trusting relationships with those around her and knowing that she serviced well was her reward. Christina’s other hidden talent lies in event planning and is the YP Ambassador on the Steering Committee of the Chamber of Commerce of Hawaii’s Young Professional Program. A great organization that helps build and connect the successful leaders of today with the future leaders of tomorrow! Now more than ever, she has a desire to help others find their way through life; real estate being the security and support to help them along the way.
Christina is on her thirteenth year and is focused, persistent and determined to succeed at a very high level in real estate sales. It is with great pleasure and pride for Christina to work alongside her loving mother and mentor, Yumi Laney. Yumi Laney has been selling real estate for over 40 years and is continuously paving the path for the next generation of Realtors. Together, Christina and Yumi started a Senior Concierge Program at Kahala Associates that provides referrals, services, seminars and more for the senior community and continues to provide these services to their clients at Elite Pacific Properties. Another innovative way to help their clients navigate through the sales process. Christina also assisted as the sales manager of Kaka’ako’s brand new affordable housing project with the two state agencies, HCDA and HHFDC, The Block 803 Waimanu. She continues to work directly with the developer on those sales but has put her main focus back on general brokerage to tend to her client base. Her most recent endeavor has been her new lifestyle website: www.SmartLivingHi.com, centered around smart home technology, sustainability, healthy lifestyles and smart business.
