Meet The Team

A Skilled Team of Real Estate Professionals

Berneicea “Bee” Worrell, principal broker owner of Hawaii Premier Homes, LLC, is the first African-American woman to start a Real Estate Brokerage Firm and Property Management Company in Hawaii. 

Bee began her real estate journey in 2003 with Coldwell Banker Pacific Properties on the mainland and continued her work there in 2005 in Hawaii in the Kahala Office which introduced her to Hawaii’s ever changing real estate market. After 10 years with Coldwell Banker Pacific Properties, she stepped out on faith and started Hawaii Premier Homes, LLC with the support of her colleagues and community members, the National Pan-Hellenic Council, and her sorority, Delta Sigma Theta, Incorporated.

With Hawaii Premier Homes, LLC, Bee helps her clients maintain their properties, prepare their homes for showings, and screen potential tenants. She also helps clients manage their property investments. Instead of referring clients to someone else for property management, she established a real estate company that does it all! Offering Premier Service to Premier Clients is a team effort. 

Her team has successfully closed 100% of their Short Sales in Hawaii since 2005. Her team includes two sharp and skillful Business Associates, Jay Brown and Anita Motte, who share her vision of well-rounded service and commitment to excellence. 

Bee lives in Ala Moana with a beautiful view of the ocean where she enjoys swimming at the beach, boogie boarding, and relaxing with friends and sorority sisters. 

“So often I would work with buyers, looking for that special property that they could rent to someone for a few years. North, south, east, and west, we would look all over this island. I help people purchase and sell island-wide, so we would literally look everywhere. Once we found the perfect property, I would negotiate the contract, we would close the transaction, and I would send them on their way.” She added, “I wanted to offer more support, but legally, I was bound.”

Jay was absolutely amazing as my property manager. He found tenants during the time I rented and recently sold my home within one month of listing it. I didn’t have to worry about anything. He’s very professional and knowledgeable and I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for property management, to buy or sell!

Designation

Hands down, Jay Brown is the realtor you want for buying or selling your home! My wife and I worked with Jay on our home purchase in 2016. He is an expert in the entire process plus understands military life/benefits/etc. He fought for us, negotiated, and kept everything on time and on target. We were so impressed that we also used Jay on the selling of our home when the military moved us in 2019. Jay was proactive, made sure the process went smoothly, gave honest up front advice, coordinated repairs/improvements, negotiated with unreasonable buying offers, and got us to the closing table. A true real estate professional, Jay Brown earned my complete trust and confidence.

Josh and Karen Doss

He always kept in mind everything we were looking for in a home. Thanks for find us the perfect home for us! He was very flexible with appointments. He really got invested in what we were looking for. I never felt like I was lost or never felt like I couldn’t reach him for any questions we had. If I ever go through this process again I know exactly who to go to.

Jay is both professional and competent. He spent a lot of time with me over several months looking for my new home. I couldn't be more pleased and highly recommend him.

Barry and Dede Henderson

Jay Brown Is a top tier realtor. His knowledge and expertise in the Oahu realty market is unparalleled. He helped my wife and I purchase our first home in Hawaii nearly 5 years ago and sell a home in March 2019, realizing a significant profit. This was due in large part to his guidance and advice in preparing our home for market through the best use of our time and money in updating, staging, and adding to the curb appeal of the property. After 2 outstanding experiences we can recommend him wholeheartedly and with absolutely no reservations. If you want the best working for you give him a call now!

Karen and David Goforth

Mr. Brown was extremely knowledgeable, very familiar with the properties shown, surrounding areas as well as all other aspect important to a homebuyer. Not only did he show us several homes but also spent considerable time explaining the uniqueness of purchasing a home on Oahu. He was very responsive in providing answers to our many questions. The lengthy process of financing a home is not a pleasant experience. But Mr. Brown made the experience as 'painless' as possible for us by proactively pushing forward and successfully closing on our new home timely.
