Paul Staples –
Paul’s experience in real estate started at the age of 19 yrs. when he purchased his very from home. It was the pathway to a very successful career in the industry! Paul enjoys not only selling real estate but is passionate about teaching it to others as well. His company, Staples Realty, is a boutique real estate company that specializes in the following:
- Private Transactions
- Cash Transactions
- Luxury Property Sales
- Real Estate Education
Paul is also very passionate about humanitarian work and is one of the co-founders of IHHELPP (www.ihhelpp.org) a 501c3 (non-profit) organization that has made headlines and has gained the support of major corporations such as Microsoft, Jones Paint & Glass, and major college campuses. IHHELPP provides disaster-resistant public restrooms, classrooms, and homes for disaster victims. After personally witnessing complete and total destruction in the Philippines (where his wife is from) due to typhoons, fires, and earthquakes, Paul and a few friends, some with structural engineering backgrounds, formed Archipelago 7000 (www.archipelago7000.com), a company that provides an affordable disaster-resilient building material called SIPs or “Structural Insulated Panels”. The company is now in discussions with developers and government representatives to provide an affordable, quick, and permanent housing solution for victims of disasters or those who want to build a better safer home.

Jeremy Moncur –
Jeremy grew up in the Temple Valley area but has lived in Laie on and off for the last 15 years. After graduating in business at BYUH, he spent a year working in Utah and another two years doing an MBA in Southern California at SDSU. After meeting on Facebook (it’s an interesting story…) and doing long distance for a year, he married his wife in October 2016.
Outside of real estate, he enjoys surfing, reading, and eating (although you may not know the eating part by looking at him…). He learned to surf at the age of 13 when one of his best friends lived on the beach near Kualoa and has always considered east Oahu both his home for living and surfing. Reading came as a surprise later in life. Being the son of two educators, one a high school English teacher and the other an Economics professor, he pushed back on reading throughout high school only to discover in college the worth of a good book. Eating has always been a pleasure but in recent years he’s come to enjoy it more and more (and knows his waistline will eventually catch up with that).
