January 2017 Locations Agent Newsletter

Loyalty, commitment, hard work and family are not just traits of the Rooster, they are also traits of Locations.   As we prepare to enter a new lunar year we’d like to share with you a few Locations highlights from the past few months and a skill building worksheet which was an agent favorite during our business planning workshops.

Locations Foundation Legacy Project

In addition to helping our clients, we’re committed to improving the Oahu community by partnering with charity programs and organizations through our Locations Foundation. In 2016, our Foundation donated over $275,000 to the community, touched 105 organizations and was fueled by 2,000 volunteer hours.

New Partners

Locations announced Atau Sakuma and Megumi Nekotani as the newest Partners within the company. A Partner at Locations is a REALTOR® who demonstrates sustained excellence in sales performance, who contributes to the growth and success of the firm, and who is regarded in the industry and among the public for their sales capabilities, professionalism, and business integrity.

“Atau and Megumi are both experienced agents who have a long track record for excellence in the real estate industry and are regarded as leaders in our community,” said Scott Higashi, President and CEO of Locations. “Each of our Partners at Locations brings a unique background of sales, peer mentorship, excellent client service and professionalism, and I believe Atau and Megumi will be invaluable additions to our select Partner group.”

Since being established in 1974, the Partner program at Locations has been a driving force behind the continued success of the firm and the productivity of Locations’ agents. With the addition of Sakuma and Nekotani, the Locations Partner group now has 35 members.

Christmas Party

If you haven’t noticed, at Locations we enjoy a good party, a good laugh and most importantly good company. As we do every year, we celebrated the holidays with our annual holiday party where we recognize our amazing admin staff, hosted both a fashion and talent show, and raised over 1,000 lbs of food with a $2,000 matching donation (1lbs = $2) for the Hawaii Foodbank.
