Sachi Hawaii Agent Spotlight: Meet Ayako Ide Ancheta

Ayako Ancheta

Ayako Ide Ancheta is a Broker-in-Charge at Sachi Hawaii, Honolulu’s leading international luxury real estate company in Hawaii. Originally from oceanfront Kamakura, Japan, Ayako Ide Ancheta’s passion for the water propelled her to become a professional bodyboarder while earning a psychology degree at Ritsumeikan University. This competitive drive honed her focus and determination, skills that now benefit her clients in Hawaii’s dynamic real estate market.

Now a resident of Oahu’s South Shore near Diamond Head, Ayako’s experience extends beyond this idyllic location. Having previously lived on both the North Shore and East Shore, she’s gained a deep understanding of the island’s diverse neighborhoods. This, combined with fluency in English and Japanese, allows her to bridge the gap for local and international clients seeking their Hawaii dream home.

Ayako, who has been a licensed realtor in Hawaii for over 19 years, holds an array of professional certifications, aimed at bringing an array of comprehensive skills to her clients aid. Her certifications include: Certified Real Estate Brokerage Manager Designation, Real Estate Negotiation Expert Certification, Pricing Strategy Adviser, Accredited Buyer’s Representation Designation, Seller Representative Specialist, Military Relocation Professional, Seniors Real Estate Specialist, Certified Distressed Property Expert, and Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource.

Always striving to go above and beyond, Ayako’s drive for real estate excellence extends to volunteer work, actively serving on the Honolulu Board of Realtors City Affairs Committee (chairing Land Use and Shoreline Matters) and the Grievance Committee. This dedication is further recognized through a decade of nominations for the Aloha Aina REALTORS Awards.

Understanding the nuances of American, Japanese, and Hawaiian cultures allows Ayako to cater to her diverse clientele seamlessly. Her passion for Hawaii extends to her commitment to family, friends, and clients. As Broker-in-Charge at Sachi Hawaii, Ayako injects an energetic and results-oriented approach into every transaction.

Embracing the Ocean Lifestyle

Ayako Ancheta Bodyboarding

Ayako Ancheta Paddling

Ayako isn’t just passionate about helping clients find their dream Hawaii home – she’s living it herself! When she’s not working tirelessly for her clients, you’ll find her immersed in the vibrant ocean culture that defines the islands.

Ayako is an active paddler with world renown Outrigger Canoe Club, training alongside their Open Women’s crew that competes in the Na Wahine O Ke Kai Outrigger Canoe World Championship race. This annual 41-mile paddling challenge across the grueling Ka’iwi Channel from Molokai to Oahu tests both physical and mental strength and endurance, perfectly reflecting Ayako’s dedication and drive in all that she does. On her days off, Ayako often jumps on her jet ski, venturing out to search for dolphins and whales enjoying the incredible feeling of swimming alongside these playful creatures. Early mornings often see Ayako longboarding the waves in front of her Waikiki home, while afternoons might find her jogging or exploring Kapiolani Park. Winter brings a change of scenery, as Ayako heads to the North Shore of Oahu to tackle the legendary Banzai Pipeline surf spot on her trusty bodyboard.
