Lydia Ou Bishop, a top-notch Oahu realtor announced the opening of Sesame Realty, LLC.
Sesame Realty, located in Kapolei, offers access to Lydia’s 19 years of experience in residential sales and Property Management, in addition to her experience working on Wall Street auditing brokerage houses and acting as a Public Arbitrator. As an added bonus, clients benefit from her compassion & commitment for understanding their needs and wants, nurtured from her experience as a Registered Nurse.
“I feel that as brokers grow, they lose the personal touch. While technology is an essential tool in the real estate business, my commitment to my clients is to cultivate and maintain a personal relationship that eases the stress of buying or selling a home. The competitive edge in the real estate transaction is preserved by utilizing every technological tool available in the marketplace.” Lydia understands the value of balancing the use of technology with personal contact. She meets face-to-face and answers a clients’ phone calls in a timely manner thereby providing peace-of-mind for her clients that can quickly be lost if an agent is not committed to being available in this way.
When asked about what is most important about her owning her own firm, Lydia stated, “I’m looking forward to focusing on our clients and our relationships with them. We want them to know that they have a person they can call their realtor and friend for life. While we are committed to state-of-the-art technology in order to adapt to societal and industry changes with the least amount of disruption in the real estate process, our relationship with our clients will always be our primary commitment.”
