Located near the center of Oahu, Mililani is a planned community that sits on former red clay plantation fields. The land was originally owned by Castle & Cooke, one of the Big Five companies in Hawaii, and the goal of the community was to bring together a top-notch group of architects and planners who could design a community that would meet the needs of Oahu’s escalating housing demands.
The first homes in Mililani were built in 1968, with 112 offered for sale and a waiting list of 2,000. A true master-planned community, Mililani has no driveways or parking on the main streets to make it safer and to keep traffic flowing. When the Interstate H-2 opened in 1976, travel time from Honolulu to Mililani was cut in half, making the community a desirable bedroom community for Honolulu commuters. In 1986, Mililani was the first Hawaiian community to receive the distinction of All-America City.
Mililani’s location on a plateau between two volcanic mountains makes the town physically situated between the two large gulches of Waikele and Kīpapa. The older part of Mililani to the west of Interstate H-2 is known as Mililani Town. The newer portion, located to the east of Interstate H-2, is Mililani Mauka. A more secluded part of Mililani is called Launani Valley, which is a separate master-planned development that consists of town homes and single family communities.
The town boasts its own commercial shopping center, community centers, parks, and schools. The Mililani Town Association serves as the community’s homeowners association; it enforces design standards and manages recreational facilities, such as several pools. (These beaches mentioned are not close by to Mililani) Nearby recreational attractions include Pupukea Beach, Makaha Beach Park and the Mililani Golf Course.
“I am a retired, disabled veteran. In the summer of 2013, I faced significant financial, professional, and personal challenges. At the center of these challenges was the fact that my home was under water and I could not continue making payments. I had previously worked with three other real estate agents on island (two from major companies and one independent) and could not better my situation. Facing the brink of foreclosure and financial ruin, I called Team Lally on a recommendation from a friend. From that moment forward, I was able to take comfort in the belief that these people would achieve the best possible outcomes for my circumstance. While all Team Lally members went above and beyond to help me, I would like to highlight a few.Adrienne Lally, President/Team Lally – Simply the best real estate professional I have ever worked with. Within 36 hours of first contact, she had personally assessed my home and situation, and developed a cogent, strategic plan for presentation, foreclosure avoidance, and best-pricing. Her knowledge of the Hawaii real estate market is beyond reproach and she repeatedly took the time to answer every question and concern that I had. As a veteran herself, she offered unique insight on my circumstance and developed a rapport I found with no other real estate agent. Most importantly, she maintained consistent contact throughout the process via weekly updates, even after I left the islands. I was never just a number to Adrienne Lally. If I am e…

“Aloha! Calen at Team Lally has worked with my husband and I since day 1 of our search for our home. She was always so prompt with emails, house listings and also giving us an unbiased and honest opinion. She’s extremely knowledgeable about real estate and was constantly patient if we had any questions. She would always make sure that we could get the most bout of our money and would constantly be negotiating for us with our best interests at heart. She was on top of things and I didn’t have to go hunting for her or feel alone in this process. Our experience with working with Calen at Team Lally has been such a pleasant and personal experience that anyone should be blessed with! Elizabeth and Justin Munson”

We are VERY satisfied with their services. We recommend Team Lally when you are looking to sell your home.”
