Delmore Realty – Two generations serving Maui: Thomas G. Delmore (Tom), the Principal Broker for Delmore Realty, was first licensed in Hawaii in 1989 and opened Delmore Realty in 1992. The company is located at 1877 Wili Pa Loop #2 in the Millyard in Wailuku, where it has been based for last 25 years. Delmore Realty now has four family members, with more than 60 years combined real estate experience, and four additional licensees, for a total of eight active agents.
“We do a lot of business in Wailuku and Central Maui,” Delmore said. “Nobody has sold more condos in Iao Parkside than we have. We are very well informed about all different kinds of Wailuku properties, both residential and commercial. From time to time we also represent properties at higher price points.” High end sales have included a luxury oceanfront condo at Polo Beach in Makena, buyer and seller representation for multiple units at Kaanapali’s Honua Kai, one of the west side premier complexes, oceanfront property on the North Shore and luxury homes in Haiku, Launiupoko and Kula.
Delmore is a believer in the value of building relationships; “When you treat people right they come back to you,”” he said. “Real estate involves an understanding of fiduciary responsibility and a high degree of trust.”
Before coming to Hawaii, Delmore, a native of West Allis, Wisconsin (near Milwaukee), was a graduate of the University of Wisconsin at Whitewater where he received a degree in Business Administration. He served in the US Army for over four years, including tours in Thailand and South Korea, where he met his wife. Following the military he spent decades working as a federal employee for the Internal Revenue Service on the Mainland. “In those years,” he said, “I went to work in the dark and came home in the dark. The building I worked in was made of granite. I never saw the sun. When an opening was posted in the Treasury’s Honolulu office you can bet I jumped at it.” He was selected for the Hawaii assignment and went on to head the Maui IRS office and received many superior performance awards over the years.
Tom and his wife, Young, moved to Oahu in 1974 and then to Maui in 1978. The couple has three children, Kim, Brian and Kevin. Both Kim and Brian have followed their parents not only into real estate, but also into the family firm.
Always an early adopter in technology, Delmore has had a website for more than 20 years. He is well versed in all the bells and whistles of the internet age and provides tech support for his family and other agents in the company.
Tom is a longtime member of the Realtor’s Association of Maui (RAM) and has held many leadership posts in that organization including: Treasurer, Secretary, MLS chair, member of the budget committee and area representative.
For recreation Tom likes to walk. He still roots for the University of Wisconsin at Madison Badgers in basketball and football, and continues to follow the Green Bay Packers. In former years Tom was an active runner and completed many marathons. He was an officer in the Valley Isle Road Runners club. He was involved with his children in age group swimming for 15 years and served as president of the Aloha Aquatics swim team.
