Phillip Legare

Upon retiring after 45 years in the Marine Corps and Department of Defense, Phil moved to Hawaii to join the award-winning team at RE/MAX ALOHA HOMES to pursue a career in real estate. He speaks both Japanese and Korean and has a lifetime of experience with military and government moves. He owns and manages multiple single-family home rental properties and has lived in several states in the US and overseas, making him an excellent resource for anyone looking for a home in Paradise and/or buyers looking to invest in real estate. His life experience, work ethic, market knowledge, keen negotiation skills, and passion for helping others enable him to achieve the best outcomes for his clients. Phil's goal is to greatly exceed expectations for the highest quality of customer service. His work motto is, "In Omnia" meaning he is "All In" to represent you and achieve your goals.

When not working with a client, Phil may be found in his dojo teaching Japanese traditional martial arts and self-defense, on the golf course sharpening his game or trying his hand at stand-up paddleboarding. He is the highest-ranked foreign instructor in the art of Budo Taijutsu and also developed a protection training program for the Department of Defense that has been in use for more than 20 years to keep their personnel safe. He is a 2010 National War College graduate and sought-after lecturer on topics including the warrior ethos, Native American traditions, and his life experiences. He is a combat veteran and a life member of both the Veterans of Foreign Wars organization and the American Legion. Phil is involved in supporting philanthropic activities and charitable organizations around the world and right here on Oahu including the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, PTSD Foundation of America, Soldier On Australia, the Africa Foundation, the Bishop Museum and Honolulu Museum of Art, and the Thurgood Marshall College Fund. Phil and his wife Joanne live in Ewa Beach where they enjoy working out, awesome sunsets, and Phil's home-brewed beer regularly. Go Warriors beat ICAF!
