Honolulu, HI – Shirokiya Residential Estates LLC has announced the appointment of JP (John Paul) Lam as its Director of Asia Marketing.  A Punahou and Pepperdine graduate, Lam has lived in Japan, China and Korea, is fluent in Japanese, and has extensive experience in real estate sales and acquisitions in Hawaii and California.

Lam will be responsible for targeting Asian buyers looking to purchase high-end residential properties on Oahu.  He will work directly under Takafumi “Taka” Gomyo and Realtor® Abraham W.H. “Abe” Lee, Co-Managing Directors of Shirokiya Residential Estates.

“We are very pleased to have JP join us in this capacity,” said Lee.  “His familiarity with the Japanese market, Japanese language proficiency, and knowledge of the local real estate market are a big plus.”

Apart from his experience in real estate, Lam is best known for his successful musical career.  For the past three and a half years, he has toured extensively throughout Asia as the featured artist with Japanese superstar Misia.  He is also a composer for Sony Music Publishing and recently formed the retro surf band, The Dukes of Surf.  The group’s debut single, “Waikiki,” hovered at the top of Japan’s music charts throughout the summer.  The Dukes are currently working on their second studio release with their record label, JVC Victor Entertainment.

Regarding his appointment, Lam said, “The Japanese have been so warm and welcoming to me and my music, and now I’m excited to be able to draw from my experience and give back to the Japanese people by serving their real estate needs in Hawaii through Shirokiya Residential Estates.  What a great honor it is to be a part of Shirokiya’s esteemed heritage.”
