Our story begins with Frank & Lois Newhall, who started the company in 1969. Their son Larry joined them in 1976 and is currently the Principal Broker.  His wife, Marva, began working in 1980. Larry's oldest daughter, Celeste, officially came aboard in 1985. She is the current Broker In Charge. The youngest daughter, Teri, started in 2003, and re-joined the company in 2012 and now assists Marva in managing the Corporate interests. Additions to our staff are John Greaves, who runs our Maintenance division, and Marielisa (Lisa) Ganac, our Bookkeeping/Office Assistant.

Having now been run by three generations of Newhalls, Pacific Rim Properties Ltd. is now one of the oldest Real Estate companies in the State of Hawaii. Larry, Marva, and Celeste alone possess almost 100 years of real estate experience between them!
