"We loved working with Jon! He is knowledgable, always very responsive to our calls/emails/texts, and available for help when we needed it. It doesn't hurt that he's an overall nice dude to boot! We can, and will, recommend him to others in a heartbeat." - Shinya Y, 8/16/2021

"Our experience with Jon Yamasato was just awesome!!! He knew exactly what we were looking for and kept us in the loop on a daily basis. It was great being able to communicate with him through all hours of the day and he is a very dedicated and accommodating person who gets the job done.

"Jon Yamasato is an excellent realtor! He goes all out, researches things when we have questions, presents me with options but also makes his best recommendation based on his experience. Most importantly, I trust Jon. I will always call Jon when I need a realtor." - Reni S, 6/8/2020

"Jon Yamasato is such an awesome person!!! I am particularly impressed with his personalized approach in dealing with different people. He was very attentive to my questions and concerns throughout the entire process in the sale of my property. He provided regular updates and was always quick to reply to my texts and phone calls. I would wholeheartedly recommend him over and over again to friends and family for future real estate needs. Thanks so much!!!" - Jennifer F, 4/3/2020

"Jon was extremely helpful in buying our new home. He was always affable, attentive, informative, prompt, and available to us. He was proactive, very open/flexible to what we wanted without pushing us in any way, and very wise in his advice. Jon made house buying a pleasurable and speedy process. It seems impossible to overstate how good Jon was in serving us. We would highly recommend Jon, as well as Locations, to anyone who is looking to buy a home in the Honolulu area. Mahalo nui loa!" - Richard J, Buyer, 4/20/2016

"Jon is by far the most professional agent I have ever worked with. He is definitely looking out for the best interest of his clients instead of trying to line his pockets. He will get future business from me when I buy again." - Darren M, Buyer, 10/13/2015  

"Jon had no hesitation in going above and beyond for us and maintained that level of high quality service throughout a very frustrating short sale purchase transaction that took nearly seven months from the offer to closing. Nothing short of awesome." - Wayne K, Buyer, 5/27/2015

"Jon Yamasato embodies the balance between professional and laid-back. He immediately put us at ease and helped us find the property we wanted. I was afraid of someone pigeon-holing us into something in order to make THEIR sale, but Jon made everything about us. He is our only choice in future transactions, and we have already recommended him with the highest regard to coworkers. The former cop at Windward Mall was pretty rude though. Jon more than made up for that experience. 10/10, will use again and will recommend to everyone." - Christopher W, Buyer, 9/9/2015

"Jon did a tremendous job as our realtor. Three words come to mind when we think of our experience with Jon: patience, compassion and diligence. PATIENCE - COMPASSION - DILIGENCE - Jon fought tirelessly for us and helped find a solution that we were amenable to. With Jon, it was more than just being knowledgeable about the real estate industry and having a wide network that he could tap into when we needed it. His patience, compassion and diligence are what sets him apart from other realtors, and what ultimately helped us buy our first home in Hawaii. We'd work with Jon again in a heartbeat. Mahalo." - Daniel L, Buyer, 9/6/2013

"We couldn't be any happier with the service that Jon Yamasato provided for us during our home sale and buy. He was able to manage both transactions with detail and care. He constantly reassured us when we were stressed out, provided guidance when we needed it, and did it all with a tremendous amount of professionalism and empathy. Jon made the complicated process of selling and purchasing a home easy on us, and we are very grateful for the time and effort he put forth to help us provide a better home for our children." - Aaron C, Seller, 8/7/2013
About Jon
Jon’s hallmark trait as a realtor is the “high touch” service he provides to his clients, a personalized approach, working with their timelines and desires. A real estate purchase can sometimes seem complicated, so he tries to make the process as easy and understandable as possible. Moving to Compass was an opportunity to work with other agents that have the same values. He is now part of REAL, Real Estate And Living in Hawaii–a team taking real estate to the next level by providing new technologies to the industry, and partnering together to make sure that all clients get the same “high touch” level of service.

Jon’s real estate career started in 2003 under the tutelage of Rodney Mukai, a mentor and friend to this day. As part of the Mukai Group, Rod and Jon worked on over $200 million worth of real estate sales between 2003-2009. In 2009, Jon stepped out on his own and has since won numerous awards including:
- Pacific Business News' 40 under forty business people to watch
- Top 100 Realtors in the state (Hawaii Business Magazine)
- Numerous sales awards at former company (Locations)
- The Locations Foundation Angel Award (for charitable work)

On his spare time you can find Jon with his family Stacey (wife), Nysa (daughter), and Asa (son). You can also find him at, a musical passion project that Jon has been working on for the last 13 years.

Jon was born in West Covina, CA, but has lived in Hawaii, specifically Hawaii Kai, since age 2. He’s basically lived in Hawaii Kai his entire life. A Kaiser High School grad, Jon went on to get his Bachelor’s degree in Education (Science) at the University of Hawaii. Go Bows!
