Hawaiʻi Homebuyer Resources
My name is Kelley Nayo-Jahi, and I am passionate about supporting people toward improving their financial condition. Although my family experienced poverty during my youth, I was given the opportunity to pursue a formal education, and that changed my trajectory. In my adulthood, I began a personal quest to strengthen my relationship with money and create financial stability as well as opportunities for my loved ones. It is my honor to share the wisdom of my journey with the Landed community.
If you're thinking about buying a home but are not sure you're ready, we are pleased to share this database of organizations who offer a wide range of homebuying education services. The database contains resources in a number of cities and counties throughout the state. Feel free to connect with the organizations in your community to discover ways to create more financial security in your life.
We look forward to supporting you in your financial wellness journey.
