Honolulu, HI – January 2, 2020 – Sandwich Isles Realty, Inc. is now known as PORTFOLIO. Honolulu’s forward thinking real estate firm, announced today the launch of its new name, corporate brand identity, redesigned logo, and website. These changes come at a time when the company is evolving and expanding its global reach.
In 1990, Carl Smigielski opened Sandwich Isles Realty when his sons, Kimo and Kyle, were accepted into Punahou School.
When the college years hit, Kimo Smigielski decided to get his real estate license while still at the University of Hawaii Manoa and joined Carl in the family business in 2000. Kimo has been an integral part of Sandwich Isles Realty ever since. He has a mind for technology and an eye firmly on the future that allows him to not only make his own intelligent real estate decisions and investments, but offers that same forward thinking and direct approach to the people he works with. Kimo is the Principal Broker of PORTFOLIO, which thrives today as a luxury & standard residential resale brokerage with a full-service luxury & standard residential property management division.
Kyle entered the real estate business full time in 2015 after graduating from UC Irvine and living and working in California for ten years. During his professional career he worked as a commercial real estate agent with Marcus & Millichap, which gave Kyle a keen understanding of the numbers and analysis needed when investing in real estate. Kyle has learned all sides of real estate and employs all of his knowledge when assisting people in buying and selling all types of property.
The Smigielski’s have a long history of impeccable real estate service in the islands. Since starting Sandwich Isles Realty in 1990, the company has had a strong presence in the luxury market in Honolulu. But with all of the new technology and big firms entering the local market, Carl and Kimo saw the need to up their game to benefit their clients.
In late 2018, PORTFOLIO was born. In an increasingly competitive market, Portfolio’s new services include gorgeous in-house staging services and one-of-a-kind marketing plans. PORTFOLIO has set a new standard of luxury service and marketing that has never before been seen in Hawaii.
