Who We are

Hawaii Living 365 is here to give you a year-round look into living in the Hawaiian islands from a family, small business and real estate perspective.

Jason Otero & Emily Garcia are your hosts for Hawaii Living 365. After moving to Hawaii from New York, where they owned a graphic design studio, they saw it as their opportunity to create businesses that encompass their new Hawaii lifestyle. Jason opened a beach gear rental and tour company, and Emily became a realtor with Hawaii Life Real Estate Brokers—which also has a self titled show called "Hawaii Life" on HGTV. Jason and Emily's decision to move to Hawaii was based on wanting to live life with their two children to the fullest. The remoteness of the islands with it's vast blue oceans, and dramatic mountain ranges helped them gain a sense of amazement that they now want to share with you. Even with all of it's beauty, Hawaii may not be the ideal place for everyone to live year-round, but there are many ways to experience it. Mahalo for reading, Jason and Emily look forward to receiving your questions and comments.
