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 used Team Lally for BOTH Buying and selling our home, and without a doubt, would use and recommend them time and time again! They made each process easy and enjoyable, and was always there to answer any and all questions or concerns we had. Can’t give a stellar enough review to the excellent Team. Above and beyond, definitely customer service orientated! Thank you guys for all you have done for us!”
“Team Lally has been very helpful during our short sale process. They are committed to us and have a lot experience in short sales so it makes it much smoother to complete this long drawn out process. I am thankful for all their help, expertise, and patience during this short sale. I absolutely recommend Team Lally for anyone who wants an experienced Team working for them in the real estate and housing market.”
“Team Lally is really quite exceptional. Each time we have been to the office we have had a personable and helpful experience. The connections they have with other businesses are also extraordinary. Team Lally doesn’t settle for less and they will work hard on your behalf.”
“Team Lally are great. I have not had the chance to buy a house yet but I know that whenever we walk in the office we are considered not only a valued customer but as family. I am lucky to have them on my side.”
“Team-Lally Rocks! It’s great to be considered a part of the Team-Lally family! After 13 years away from Hawaii, and looking for a house on the Ewa plain, we hooked up with a Team Lally realtor who was showing a house that we visited. Throughout the buying process, the knowledgeable staff addressed any problems that we encountered and concerns that we raised. We left the process feeling that our interests were properly represented and protected. This is the very thing that we expect from my realtor and weren’t disappointed. Our relationship didn’t end there. Through customer appreciation events (great food and prizes), newsletters and other resources, we stay connected. Also, if we have a question about market trends or need a contact for everything from a mortgage broker for refinancing or a plumber, we send an email or pick up a phone for a quick response—in practice, this team is really a network of businesses that work well together to meet the many needs of the customer. This is what the relationship between customer and realtor should look like, but seldom does. If we buy or sell again, we know who we’re calling—Team Lally! Joe & Tammy Waligura.”
“Awesome experience with TEAM LALLY! We sold the home faster than expected with professional service from TEAM LALLY. I’d recommend their services to anyone coming or going to Hawaii! The team concept was what sold us on the service they could provide. It’s nice to know that every aspect of the process is covered by people who specialize in that area. Buying Agents just focus on the buyers, Listing Agents just focus on selling your home and understanding the market at the time, processing agents become your main contact after you are “under contract” for specialized customer service. Howard was very responsive with all our questions, it was as if he never left the office! Thanks TEAM LALLY!”
“Team Lally did a wonderful job selling our home and answering all of our questions and concerns! Howard and Christopher have been there for my every need even after the sale of my home! A wonderful crew over there!”
“Dealing with team Lally has been a great experience. All of the agents which I encountered were very knowledgeable and courteous. The office which they conducted their business was neat and tidy. The atmosphere was very conducive.”
“Last year my wife and I came to Hawaii for a quick to buy a house for our impending move to the islands. Cherrie worked hard and helped us to get under contrsct and then close the deal. Hats off to the Lally Team”
“Working with Team Lally was fantastic! Celeste helped us to buy a new home and Adrienne and Atillio helped us to sell a home. Team Lally was responsive to all of our needs and questions. Team Lally exceeded our expectations!”
