Home About Us

The late Marcus K. Nishikawa founded Marcus & Associates, Inc. in 1971. From its beginnings as solely a residential sales operation, the firm has grown into a family of companies serving Hawaii’s real estate needs.

Today, Marcus & Associates, Inc. remains a locally owned, non-franchised company, specializing in Hawaii real estate, that proudly provides our clientele with experienced, personalized, and professional services.

Mission Statement

Marcus and Associates, Inc. and its subsidiaries, is a locally-owned full-service real estate Company consisting of carefully selected staff and sales associates who provide comprehensive, expert and personalized services to its clients, most of whom use the Company for all of their real estate needs. The Company is relationship-focused not only with its clients, but also with its staff, and places a high priority on providing a professional, yet nurturing environment in order to encourage everyone to reach their maximum potential.

Corporate Culture

Five bullet points that describe our culture: 

  • We are committed to do what is in the best interest of the client. Always.
  • Everyone in our Company is ready, willing and able to help anyone else in the Company when needed.
  • Reputation of the Company is of paramount importance. This also applies to the reputation of each individual in the Company.
  • We are very focused on projecting a professional image where ever we are. The office, however, is a “safe haven” where we can be comfortable “being ourselves”.
  • Real estate is our career, not just a temporary job. As a result, our priority is to build and enhance relationships, not just on increasing business transactions.
