"For the past 8 years, Kala has taken great care of me and my family by providing such great service and sense of security with our future.  He informs us on the many different products and investments and explains everything to us, but also let's us make our own decision based on what we are most comfortable with.  He is very dedicated, trustworthy, honest and treats us just like family.  We are so happy with Kala and New York Life.

"Having known of New York Life's already stellar reputation, I was looking to work with a local agent who understands life in Hawai'i.  Kala visited with me about the options for insuring our family and the benefits of being properly covered. I was so impressed with how confident Kala was in the plans offered and I felt calm and comfortable deciding on the best coverage for our family."
