Located along the north shore of Pearl Harbor, Pearl City is part of the surrounding Honolulu metro area and is 9 miles northwest of the city itself. Rising as high as 95 feet above sea level, Pearl City boasts a breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean and offers numerous opportunities for hikers, beachgoers, and nature enthusiasts.
Situated on four ahupuas, which are traditional Hawaiian divisions of land, Pearl City lines up the coast of Oahu. Historically, the area was known for its pearl harvesting as the Pearl River drew many western explorers, and was discovered to be a bountiful resource for oysters. In 1815 King Kamehameha I commissioned Francisco de Paul Marin to focus his pearl trade in Hawaii. In the mid-1800s, cattle-raising become common in the mountains of Pearl City, which destroyed the forests and mountains, eventually harming the oyster population in the Pearl River. In the late 1800s, Pearl City became crop-producing farmland for Hawaii’s sugar production. Today crops such as pineapple, rice other tropical fruits are grown and sold locally.
Modern day Pearl City relies heavily on its booming year-round tourism industry, as well as its international trade commerce thanks to the area’s revitalized business ports. The area also offers many parks, including the Pearl Harbor National Wildlife Refuge, Pearl City Kai Playground and the Pacheco Playground. For other forms of entertainment, the Pearl City Shopping Center is a premier shopping destination for tourists. The Signature Theatres is an elegant movie house popular with local residents. Pearl City is also home to such higher education institutes as the University of Hawaii – West Oahu and Leeward Community College.
“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 helped me with the shortsale of an underwater, upsidedown mortgage. I am so glad I found them. Thanks.”
“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!”
“Adrienne, Attilio, and Howard worked hard and patiently to get my condo sold. Despite working through hours where it was difficult to reach me in Boston. Their phone calls, emails, and use of the docusign system set the stage for the sale in a tough market. Thanks once again for your helpfulness and professionalism.”
“I love Adrienne and her crew. I am always impressed by how much they care about their customers and the time and effort they put into the care and feeding of all of us. I also am humbled by how much Adrienne does for the local community and those in need. It is just a relief to let Adrienne and her crew take care of you. Lori and Dennis Bennett”
“My husband and I worked with Cherie Fikani. Amazing customer service. She was always available to answer questions in person, emails, texts and phonecalls. My husband and I never had to wait on a response or ask for an update. She was always well prepared.I like that she was patient… understanding even. She listens to the specifics and works with us on it without rushing us through. This experience could have been a scary ride but Cherie made sure nothing takes away the excitement of buying a home.Mahalo Nui Mrs. Fikani I would most definitely recommend TEAM LALLY to family and friends.”
“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!”
“Aloha! I have worked with Adrienne for several years. She is the hardest worker and the most knowledgeable realtor I know. And there is nobody better than Team Lally when it comes to Short Sales! That’s why I used her! Her Team sold my home! And they make it easy with their outstanding team! And their marketing is 2nd to none! I highly recommend Adrienne and Team Lally!!”
“Adrienne was very helpful in selling our house. It took us a year and a half to decide to list and never did we feel pressured to do so before we were ready. We always received good information and all of our questions were answered in a timely fashion. Adrienne and her team were able to work with the buyers agent and our lenders to close our short sale in a timely fashion. I would not hesitate to refer friends to Adrienne when selling or buying a home.”
“Adrienne and her team is one of a kind . They have advocated well for me and helped me navigate the scary world of short selling. It was an uncharted territory for me but they”re so keen of putting me at ease by answering all my questions. (redundunt may it seems)with remakable patience. During the whole process I felt confident that somebody in Hawaii is looking out and working hard for my best interest. Now that its over I can truly say that I can enjoy the holiday with peace of mind. More power to you guys…God Bless.. Thank you so much again….”
