Truman Taoka RS-771816


 Born and raised in Maui, I am always excited with every opportunity that I have to share my personal experiences and knowledge of the island.  Maui is a very special place where I am able to raise my family and call home.  My wife, two teenage girls, and I enjoy the outdoors and spend lots of our time surfing and hanging out on the shores of Maui.

With a degree and 18 years of experience in Hotel Management, exceptional service and hospitality have always been my focus. Being a part of the Kamalani Project sales team was a great privilege. We sold out the 170-unit project in May of 2019. It was extremely rewarding to be able to help many first-time homebuyers realize their dream of homeownership.  I strive to keep all of my clients informed throughout the entire process of searching, purchasing, selling, and closing to make sure that they are able to make the best decisions to reach their goals.
