Nina Blanco was born in Japan and raised in Oahu from the age of 9. She finds joy and fulfillment in providing value and support to others through educational initiatives and now through the real estate profession. Nina’s unique understanding of both people and spaces had naturally led her to explore the real estate industry. Serving members of the community as a real estate advisor has become a platform of new possibilities for her in continuing to be of use to those who seek authentic, professional, and trustworthy service of the highest quality.
In studying at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, Nina was inclined to explore and design sustainable schools and health centers. After receiving a BFA in Interior Architecture and Design in 2010, Nina set off to travel the world, study Urban Planning in an intensive program at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, and hone her sales and design skills in the Honolulu Design Center. Nina was later based in New York City where her passion for learning and travel was reawakened while working in the airline industry as an international flight attendant.
While in NYC, Nina was a resident facilitator at Agile Learning Center NYC, a self-directed learning center for youth ages 7-17. This experience provided her with the foundational support in establishing Agile Learning Center Oahu in Kaka'ako by 2015, as a means to follow a calling to create the space she would have thrived in as a child.
Nina accomplished a successful pilot year with ALC Oahu, working with a number of local families and organizations along side managing recurring educational community events. She continues to provide 1-on-1 consulting to families that actively homeschool/unschool their child(ren) and to those interested in exploring self-directed learning and alternative education options.
In 2017, Nina established Nina Hawaii LLC as a new real estate agent with Primary Properties. At the start of 2018, Primary Properties had proudly transformed into Engel & Völkers Honolulu. Nina is on her way in building up a successful real estate business as an advisor, investor, and lifelong learner. She continues to develop wonderful relationships with people from all walks of life who hold dreams of all shapes and sizes, from owning their first home to raising happy children to achieving their financial objectives.
Nina is happily engaged to Dan Lin, a photographer with National Geographic. Their plan is to continue living a life of travel adventures, raise a family, and grow old laughing together. In Nina’s free time, she loves to read, create art in various mediums, surf, and relax with family and friends.
