Mark G. Howard

Principal Broker & President Hawaii Americana Realty
I am Mark G. Howard, the Principal Broker, President and founder of Hawaii Americana Realty, located in beautiful Waikiki, Hawaii. For years we've been serving all the real estate needs of our customers in Hawaii and beyond.

And it gives us great joy to do so! Our focus has been high-rise, condo, townhouse, and the single-family home market throughout Oahu and Maui, and now also the Big Island and the garden island of Kauai.

We handle buying and selling of all kinds of real estate in Hawaii, however, including business and commercial property. We can find it for you or sell it for you, but always we make sure you get the best and most lucrative deal possible!

Mark is the best RE agent we have ever had (both rental and sale), and we have had a number of them.
We were selling our rental condo in Waikiki, and wanted to keep the income stream while the place was on the market. Mark took over managing the condo for us - and immediately increased our monthly net by about 50%. He also listed the property and did a terrific job: the PR photos were perfect, and the coverage in a wide variety of media was extensive. He kept us informed at all stages of the process, answered all our questions in detail, and always responded in less than 24 hours - usually within a few minutes. He got us a good offer within just a few days.
He helped us get a very good price for the condo. We have bought and sold many properties over the years and this was the most painless transaction we have ever had, thanks to Mark. No nonsense, no needless delays, no unpleasant surprises, no loose ends. Everything was smooth. Utterly efficient, and knowledgeable about all aspects of the market and the business.
The next time we need real estate assistance in Hawai'i, Mark is the only person we would consider working with. It really doesn't get any better than this.

Retired, Realtor
Mark is a highly motivated, energetic, kind and generous individual. He carries all of these qualities into his business/real estate world. He has a great sense of humor and at the same time is a highly skilled Realtor with integrity. I highly recommend Mark for all of your buying, selling and property management real estate needs.

Mark sold my condo very quickly after other agents couldn't. He helped me price the condo to sell and he did an excellent job of getting the marketing materials together quickly. Mark is very hard working, always available via cell or email, ethical and honest. I have bought and sold many properties over the years and I know Mark has been the most effective. And I'm a former real estate agent in the islands so I can recommend him unilaterally.

It was a pleasure working with Mark on the sale of our condo. If an issue arose, he handled it promptly and efficiently. I will be recommending Mark to anyone I know who wants to purchase or sell their home in Hawaii.

Great experience!
This was my 10th real estate transaction and I have worked with many real estate brokers. By far, Mark is the best broker I have worked with. He was always ready and willing to meet with me. He was thorough and reliable. He promptly answered all my calls, texts, and emails. He came to the closing and he continued to follow up with me after the close to make sure all the repairs were being done. He even offered to reimburse any excess repair cost above the credit given by the seller! He is truly the best broker I have worked with.

Mark was absolutely relentless in working to find us the house we were hoping for. We knew that finding the right house in our price range was going to be difficult and kept our expectation low. Mark did it! We absolutely love our house. Thanks Mark!

Senior Vice President
Mark was amazing throughout our entire process. Being from South Carolina we began our real estate search online and found Mark's site one of the most informative and easy to navigate. He was very thorough and polite in responding to our inquiries in a timely manner via email and phone. Unlike other sites, he actually called us back twice to answer our questions, while we received no phone calls from other agents on other sites. Once we scheduled our visit to Oahu, Mark was organized and thoughtful by sending us MLS listings of possible showings based on the criteria we provided. We were very excited with the listings he sent us for review and even more excited when Mark was able to reserve all of our many showings in the short few hour window we provided on the one day we had available during our lovely trip. During the day of our showings Mark was right on time and we were blown away at how efficient Mark was reserving all of our showings in a limited time window. The entire day was seemless. He prepared a printed and bound packet of all the listings we were shown which was very helpful to reference throughout the day. His rapport with other agents was evident and we were very impressed with how Mark was able to organize so many different showings. In closing, we would highly recommend Mark for anyone considering real estate in Hawaii. He was always available throughout the entire process, he is professional, highly organized, efficient, and obviously knows the market very well. Our entire experience from the time we began researching through our efficient day of showings, was nothing but top notch and surpassed our expectations!

Mark is incredibly dependable. You set the time and he's excuses and no story. He goes out of his way to answer your e-mails (and he does it in a very prompt fashion). He has information prepared and studies the areas that we were inquiring of.
Mark was also very helpful in assisting us find good help with renovations and other miscellaneous things.
I can't say enough about Mark and his services.
