A local girl, Ronda has lived in several charming Oahu towns. She enjoyed Kailua as a child and remembers the tightknit neighborhood community as well as the weekend family gatherings at her grandmother's Lanikai beach home. She also lived in Kaimuki on Maunalani Heights. A favorite memory was waiting for the giant jinglebells to be strung up and down Waialae Avenue, which signaled the coming of the annual Christmas parade. The parade tradition still lives today thanks to the Kaimuki Business Professional Association and many volunteers. Today, she resides in Manoa...a charming college town neighborhood with graceful trees and historic homes. You can still find her wandering her old stomping grounds as well as in the eclectic Chinatown adjacent to Honolulu downtown and Kakaako, the developing town of Liliha, Ala Moana-Kakaako and of course Waikiki, as she looks for eateries and artistic finds!
Ronda Ching Day receives word of mouth referrals from first-time buyers, luxury home clients and community leaders because of her dedication to each client. Ronda has helped find homeowners down payment assistance programs (grant monies and low interest loans). Her clients also ask her to help them find investment properties, second homes, or their dream retirement home.
Ronda's mortgage banking and brokering experience are particularly helpful in this "subprime" climate because she can help find niche financing products through her financing network. She has worked on loan modifications for clients. Clients, lenders or bankers also appreciate this background because she understands their client's particular needs or situation and can quickly adapt with property search characteristics based on the changing underwriting requirements. Ronda is also experienced with BPOs and shortsale transactions.
If you know someone who is realizing that they may have trouble making their mortgage payments, please have them call Ronda for a consultation.
