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 Kipapa. 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 Mag. 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. Nearby recreational attractions include Pupukea Beach, Makaha Beach Park and the Mililani Golf Course.

“We had a friend that asked who could help their move to paradise. It sounds cool however they were stressed. After making a couple of calls, I knew who they needed to call. Team Lally exceeded their expectations and after the first call the stress level went way down. Thanks for your help. We can’t wait to make our visit and give you a hug in person.”
“I purchased my home as a single woman nearly 10 years ago in what I call a “big girl moment”. I improved it over the years, and then decided to move home to the mainland to be closer to my family. I was referred to Team Lally, and much differently than other agents I was referred to, they called me immediately, providing a full scope of their services, which is impressive. I liked the fact that they had me meet them in their office, outside the potentially emotional environment of my home. This is business, after all! My home was first shown on June 10 and closed at a handsome price on August 30. Wow. These guys communicate regularly by phone, provide excellent service via email and while closing the sale I experienced the best possible service. Were I to contemplate moving back to Hawaii, Team Lally would be my first call!”
“Team Lally definitely earned our business. They took pictures of our house and gave us a detailed pictorial guide of what we could do to get our house ready for the market. Everything they recommended was doable, concrete, and incredibly helpful. They are consistent, very professional and we’d highly recommend them!”
“Loved working with them! They completely understood the Military lifestyle and our needs and concerns! They were there to answer every question and help us work out any issues that came up resulting in an Excellent Sales Experience!”
“Team Lally is amazing!! What a great experience dealing with a stressful time in our family’s life! They were easy to talk to and knew everything we needed! I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy OR sell a home in Hawaii!”
“I purchased my first home with Team Lally. Cathy was an absolutely fantastic agent and I would recommend her to anyone! We had very specific needs for our home, and Cathy helped us meet every single one of them. We also were in the need of moving in within 45 days of moving to the island. Cathy made that happen! Team Lally is fantastic. Buy a house!”
“First conversation with Attilio Leonardi was a no pressure sales call. He was patient with all my questions, not hurried, and very knowledgeable about the short sale process. That helped establish trust and confidence in hiring their team. Other members of the team, with special mention to Howard Nett, all contributed to the successful negotiation. The short sale process was all together long and tedious; but as long as you commit to your part as a seller (i.e. providing necessary paperwork in a timely manner), team Lally will make the process as smooth and painless as possible with their professionalism.”
“To put it simply…Team Lally never gave up! The short sale of our home was dragging on for more than a year! With Team Lally it was completely over in 4 months. Thank you Team Lally.”
“Adrienne and Howard and their team were amazing for us. We both bought and sold our home thru them, and they helped us through every step, every time. They were understanding, knowledgeable and professional. they made what would have been a grueling process easier, and I can say how much we appreciate all their hard work! Highly recommend!!!”
“Adrienne was extremely helpful!! We were first-time homebuyers and purchased a short sale on top of that. Adrienne helped us understand every step and the entire process was smooth from start to finish. We highly recommend her and her team!”
