Lane Kawaoka is a civil engineer who invests passively in Real Estate from Honolulu, Hawaii. He used to be in a big private company as a construction engineer but after some saving and investing in real estate, he found happiness and balance at a lower paying job.
After Lane witnessed first-hand how his own parents got screwed with their 401K and with the stock market, it’s become his mission to get everyone out of what he believes is the corrupt Wall Street roller coaster style of investing, and into main street investments with safer, higher returns that benefit the middle class of North America.

“I think it goes to show that real estate used to be a bunch of people in white backdrops, new shirts, brown shoes, and navy pants that people don’t want that today. Especially, some of the younger folks, they want authenticity. They want to see some mistakes. I went into deals, my first passive investment I lost like 30, 40 grand cause I invested with a shyster. But lesson learned. People want to see that stuff.” – Lane Kawaoka
“ A lot of times these guys, they’ll either give up and never get started because they don’t get that extra push. Figure out what it is and give freely without any quid pro quo kind of assumption that you’re going to get something in return. Go ahead and do it and do it for multiple people. And you’ll find that a good majority of them will likely reciprocate. And then at that point, you know you have the data to know who you want to interact with in the future. Those people who reciprocate, they’re cool, you know, continue to nurture those relationships.” – Lane Kawaoka
