Gem Ilao was born and raised on the island of Guam with two loving parents as the youngest of five children. Her family’s business taught her the value of hard work, sacrifice, and dedication. Playing a variety of sports and representing Guam in a number of competitive events, taught Gem the value of leadership, team building, and perseverance. After graduating high school, she attended the University of Washington in Seattle and received a bachelor’s degree in Communications.
Gem has been working in property management for six years. She is a strong communicator, providing excellent customer service to her clients/tenants, and a responsible operations manager making sure anything she needs to do is done right and on time. As a frequent visitor of Hawaii with family and friends living in Oahu and the Big Island, Gem understands island culture and living. She decided to move to Kailua-Kona to further her career in real estate sales and property management.
Gem is a very outgoing and enthusiastic person. She never takes opportunities for granted and will do her very best to find the perfect home and/or manage your properties for you. When she is not working, Gem is studying to receive her online MBA degree from Seattle University. She also enjoys going to the beach, cooking, and playing with her pet bunnies!
