Elizabeth C. Makanani

Corcoran Pacific Agent




Real Estate Agent

Born and raised in upstate New York, Beth Makanani earned a Bachelor of Science degree in finance from Miami University before moving to Hawaii in 1984.

Prior to real estate, Beth was employed by Bank of Hawaii as an Assistant Vice President in the construction loan department. While corporate lending was exciting and challenging, Beth found that each project took years to complete. As a real estate agent since 1991, Beth is able to help her clients through the buying and selling process from start to finish.

Beth uses her complex problem-solving skills to assist her clients in reaching their real estate dreams and build wealth for their future. Beth has garnered annual Aloha Aina nominations, annual sales awards, and annual awards for excellence in Client Service. She serves the entire island of Oahu but specializes in Mililani and its surrounding neighborhoods.

In 2020, Beth chose Corcoran Pacific Properties over other firms because she believed Corcoran was the best “hybrid,” bridging an older style, large brick and mortar company, with a more progressive online, do-it-yourself philosophy. Beth found Corcoran’s management to be incredibly responsive, kind, and accommodating. She also appreciated the firm’s top-notch marketing materials.

Beth loves outdoor activities, especially hiking and water sports. Traveling is her passion and she hopes to get back to it soon. She has two grown children and contributes her time to local charities including the Special Olympics, Big Brothers and Big Sisters events, HUGS, and local school rehab projects.

I will recommend Beth to all of my friends and family. "

- Kenneth S.

"“Beth Makanani was the best realtor we could have asked for. We appreciated her drive and determination to find the house that was perfect for every need and want that we had. She went out of her way to research and talk with other sales agents and i nquire about properties they were selling. She kept i n constant contact with us, almost daily, through emails, texts and phone calls. Being first time home buyers, we knew very l ittle about the process i n purchasing a home. Beth was able to clearly communicate each step of the way, guiding us patiently through the process as we had many questions. We know that i f i t had not been for Beth being our realtor, we would not have gotten the house of our dreams. We apologize for the very l ate response to the survey request, and we j ust want to say how thankful we are to be l iving i n this house and how grateful we are for all that Beth did for us to make i t happen. Thank you, Beth!!!"

- Eric R.

"“Beth Makanani provided us with excellent service and guided us step-by-step through the process of selling our townhome. She went above and beyond to ensure that our home was staged professionally and used a professional photographer to take photos for the listing. Beth worked hard to make sure that we were able to sell our townhome i n a timely manner and communicated with us via email or phone on a daily basis. She always kept us in the loop and provided advice and expertise when we needed it. We are so thankful that we were able to work with Beth throughout this process. We will definitely be recommending her to our family and friends."

- Eric L.

"“An absolute pleasure to work with Beth! We used her twice over outback time i n Hawaii and were extremely pleased both times. By far the best experience we have had with a real estate agent over our history of buying and selling homes."

- Joshua H.

"It was a pleasure working with Beth. She helped us buy a condo and sell a home. Throughout both transactions, she was very knowledgeable and professional. She made a point of being timely i n receiving and providing the i nformation and documents needed for everything to flow smoothly which was a blessing to me. She's a gem!"

- Carolyn N.

"“Beth i s amazing i n every way. She went above and beyond to stage the home and offer showings that resulted i n multiple bids. She worked expediently knowing the property for sale no longer had a tenant and was i nvolved every step of the process, offering coaching and guidance. She is fantastic!"


"“I met Beth several years ago at one of her open houses. I kept her contact info knowing I would require her services in the future. I am sure that everyone knows that she is very knowledgeable and efficient, but what most impressed me was her honesty. I has several occasions in my past where realtors exaggerated details to make a sale to later change their words when it was too late to renegotiate the sale. So Beth's straightforward honest attitude made an impression on me. I know I will continue to use her services in the future."

- Joan O

"“Beth was amazing from start to finish. With her hard work and talent she staged my condo perfectly. She educated me on selling it and gave me great tips. I will recommend her to family and friends. My condo sold very quickly and for above asking price. I have friends who are real estate agents who I could have used but after meeting with Beth I knew she would the right choice and she definitely was. Mahalo Beth"

- Rich S.

"“Beth was great to work with! She was knowledgable, helpful, and always readily available. She made our first home buying experience go smoothly even when we sprang this house on her with very short notice. Thank you Beth!"

You made this experience as stress-free and pleasant as possible. We will be sharing your name with anyone who may be in need of your services. Mahalo! "

- Tim and Annette M.

"Beth is a very knowledgeable, efficient, and effective agent. If it wasn't for her reputation and relationships with other agents, we probably wouldn't have gotten the property we really wanted. She i s definitely an asset to your organization!"

- Richard H.

"“Beth was a GEM. In less than a week, she not only helped me to find a dream home, but provided amazing help after my offer was accepted. Her support with l enders, inspectors, and title companies made the entire experience less stressful. I am very pleased with my new home and would refer Beth to friends without hesitation."

- Mary L.

"This was my second time working with Beth we bought my first home and then sold that same home. Beth is professional and knowledgable i n every way! Beth helped to show the place and design it in order to make it more presentable, she also arranged for carpet/house cleanings which took away a lot of the stress of selling the home! Beth is an amazing organizer and a master communicator. Beth was great helping to understand the contract before signing and made things easy!"

- Charles P.

"“Elizabeth Makanani was extremely efficient and knowledgable in every aspect. She was always timely and very responsive whenever we had a concern or question!

We have been and continue to be very pleased with Beth and all she does!"

- Oliver s

"Beth was beyond helpful and went above and beyond to find the perfect home for our family as well as continue to help us with getting our home just the way we want it. We are so glad that we have the privilege of working with Beth and i f given the option again we would choose her over and over"

- Nicolas M.

"A pure pleasure working with Beth. She kept us informed, on tract and understood the emotional roller coaster we were riding. Beth's local Mililani knowledge and input was key to the successful sale of our home."

- Randall L.

"“Beth Makanani was amazing to work with! We connected with her when we were visiting open houses (just for fun at that point, since we weren't ready to make any offers, but she was always upfront and willing to provide information as needed). She made such a great impression each time we saw her and we felt an immediate connection with her. While friends had recommended several agents, we disregarded their recommendations and asked Beth to be our agent -- best decision we made! Will most definitely recommend her to anyone who is in the market! Thank you so very much for everything---truly made this home buying experience the best we've ever had!"

- Patrick r.

"“Beth Makanani has been our realtor for 15 years now. We always give our family and friends her name when they are in need of a realtor. She knows her "stuff". Whenever we have a referral, we tell them to be ready because Beth will either find them a home or sell their home in record time. My family and I are blessed to have a trusted realtor like Beth Makanani"

- Wayne D

"Selling a home can be a daunting prospect even under the best of circumstances. Having to sell a home under the duress of having lost a beloved father WHILE caring for and moving our disabled mother SHOULD have been even MORE challenging....but it was NOT! Beth's confident and calm reassurances were KEY in making us feel that our family home AS WELL AS our family were in good hands all the way! From our initial meeting with her we felt nothing but RELIEF that SHE was going to manage this sale in the most professional manner. She is a savvy woman who has truly mastered her business and we feel very fortunate to have had her "on our side". ALL our future real estate needs will most DEFINATELY be handled by Beth!!!"

- Thomas A.

"“We were very thankful and appreciative of Beth's knowledge and connections that expedited the sale even through major complex obstacles where Beth followed up quickly with a solution. We made the right choice and are very grateful with the outcome."

- Bert E.

"“We had a great deal of apprehension about purchasing a house from 5000 miles away. After talking to a friend, he referred us to Beth Makanani. After only a few phone calls, our doubts waned and we felt comfortable that Beth knew exactly what we were looking for. She went above and beyond to ensure we had all the information necessary to make a big decision and purchase the right home. We would (and have already have) recommend both her specifically in the future. I cannot imagine a better home buying experience."

- Jeremy U

"I cannot recommend Beth enough. She made sure everything was perfect for showing and her knowledge about the market was essential to our property being sold in such a timely manner. She was very prompt in every aspect of communication and making sure EVERYTHING was in order for the final sale. Our trust in Beth to prepare our property for sale helped our peace of mind as we are stationed millions of miles from Hawaii. Danke schon and Mahalo Beth for ensuring the best for our condo! We will definitely be seeking your expertise upon our return to Hawaii after we settle from the Army!"

- Mark s

"“Beth went above and beyond what we expected. She arranged painters, repairmen & staging for us to sell our home when we were too busy. She was available 24/7 & gave excellent advice with both buying our new home & selling our old home. She made this very stressful process turn fairly smoothly."

- William M

"Beth was wonderful throughout this transaction. Her professional knowledge, ability to coordinate and communicate with our tenants and her keen 6th sense allowed her to anticipate problems and i n many cases guide the buyers agent as the transaction matured. Beth deserves kudos for her efforts. We will certainly refer her to our friends."

- James m

"Beth's time commitment to helping us with the sale of my husband's childhood home spanned ten years! We originally sought her help in 2001 and because of personal family matters the sale of the property could not be accomplished. Ten years later, Beth graciously accepted the challenge to assist Alan in a troubling partition/settlement action. Without her dedicated efforts, the sale of the property could never have happened. She took on all of the unpleasantness of working with two attorneys and orchestrating the sale with conflicted family members and reluctant tenants residing on the property. She kept constant communication with us - all while Alan remained in Indiana comfortably away from the resulting turmoil. We owe her a debt of gratitude. Devoted, dedicated, hard-working, caring, WONDERFUL - these are just a few of her attributes. We cannot praise her enough! Please convey our gratitude. She is a shining example of customer service at the very highest level! "

- Alan F.

"Our agent, Beth, went above and beyond anything we have experienced with other agents. Anything we needed, Beth was there to provide it. She helped us to pick out new appliances for the kitchen, and she was present for their installation. She helped us pick out new flooring, and she was there for the installation. She told us what was necessary for us to get a good price on our property, and she set a price that was neither too high nor too l ow. We are a ex-military family who have bought and sold a few houses in our lifetime, and Beth is head and shoulders above all the other agents we have used. She is a true asset"

- Michael H.

"We called Beth out of the blue one afternoon as we had her card from an open house she conducted. We were quite frustrated with our current agent at the time as phone calls and messages were not returned and we missed out on a house we were interested in. We called Beth one afternoon and we had listings sent to us that evening. She was fast, kept us informed, answered our questions and we've been very happy. Beth is able to translate legalize into plain English which is greatly appreciated. We would recommend her to anyone."
