Market Insights Report

One of the most popular agent tools this year has been our Market Insights report. Personalized with agent branding this 20-page printed publication has a story for every client type. Articles range from general market trends, the impact of rail, new home developments, the luxury market and more. Click to view an online PDF version here.

Home Partner Program

the cost of buying, selling or moving home can be an expensive investment for clients. To help offset these costs Locations agents can offer their clients access to our Home Partner Program, which is a collection of exclusive discounts from local businesses. Businesses include Island Movers, Hawaii Self Storage, HomeWorld and additional 20 more. The Home Partner Program is just one of the many reasons why our agents receive a 98% satisfaction rating from clients.

Monthly Research Briefing

Did you know over 70% of home buyers in the luxury market are local? Every month our dedicated research department hosts ‘Research Briefings’ where they educate our agents on the latest market trends and conditions. Recent topics include the luxury market, a deep dive in condo markets, Kapolei and the Ewa Plain.
