Christina Laney Mitre
Smart Living Hawaii, Owner, Founder and Podcast Host
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.
Christina returned to the Hawaiian Islands in 2003 as a VIP concierge for a five-star resort on Maui which 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 was one of the founding members of the Chamber of Commerce of Hawaii’s Young Professional Program. She has been their YP Event’s Chair, Ambassador, Ambassador Trainer and Steering Committee Member over the years. 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 fifteenth 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 provided referrals, services, seminars and more for the senior community and continues to provide these services at Elite Pacific Properties. Christina also assisted as the sales manager of one of Kaka’ako’s brand new affordable housing projects with two state agencies, HCDA and HHFDC. 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. She sits on the Catholic Charities of Hawaii’s Board of Directors and is currently the Chair of the HBR East Oahu Region. She also is a founding Charter Member of the Eco-Rotary Club of Kakaako, currently the Membership Chair but soon to be Chair Elect. On her remaining free time, she has launched her non-profit, passion project of creating a sustainable awareness hub for the State of Hawaii and its people.
