About Us

Our Mission

Marcus is a locally owned, full-service real estate company. Its seasoned staff and sales associates offer comprehensive, expert and personalized services to its clients in the residential, commercial, property management, and construction industries. Marcus is relationship-focused with both its clients and staff, placing a high priority on providing a professional yet nurturing environment, encouraging everyone to reach their maximum potential.


In 1971, the late Marcus K. Nishikawa founded Marcus & Associates as a residential real estate company. Over the next several decades, and up until his passing, Mr. Nishikawa built the company into one whose name and reputation was synonymous with hard work, dedication, integrity and expertise in the Hawaii real estate market.

Differentiating Marcus the man from Marcus & Associates was anything but easy since Mr. Nishikawa’s reputation was firmly imprinted into the DNA of the company. But with his legacy came an inner strength. Dale K. Nishikawa and Norman Noguchi took up the mantle and shepherded the brand into the company it is today. Marcus - now diversified to include commercial, property management and construction - represents tenacity in the new generation that is carrying the Marcus legacy into the future.

In 2021, the company simplified its name to Marcus, signaling the transition into a new era of leadership by Marcus’s sons Kevin, Jason and Brent. Today, Marcus remains true to its founder and his values. With 60+ employees helping to bring the brand forward, it is the largest locally owned, family-run, non-franchised company in the islands that specializes in Hawaii real estate; providing personalized, professional services in residential and commercial sales, property management, construction, and plumbing.

We’re proud to celebrate 50 years of serving Hawaii. Though we’ve simplified our name, we have not changed our commitment to you. Work with us today to change where your life happens tomorrow.


We are committed to always doing what is
in the best interest of the client. Always.
Everyone at Marcus is ready, willing and
able to help each other when needed.
The reputation of the company and its employees
is of paramount importance. We are focused on
projecting a professional image wherever we are,
though the office remains a “safe haven” where
everyone can feel comfortable being themselves.
Real estate is our career; it is not just a temporary
job. As a result, our priority is to build and
enhance relationships, not just on increasing
business transactions.
