Harold Clarke has been transforming the luxury real estate market in Hawai‘i for the last 20 years. Harold founded and runs Deep Blue HI as a real estate consulting firm to help manage portfolios and facilitate sales and acquisitions for high-net-worth individuals who have an interest in Hawai‘i.

Harold is also the founder and CEO of Harold X Clarke Advisors, a global sales and marketing firm that works closely with the world’s top .001% of affluent homebuyers and developers in the ultra-luxury real estate market.

With two decades of experience, Harold leverages financial and wealth management best practices and industry knowledge to provide clients with forward-thinking business advice while ensuring the utmost discretion, confidentiality, and authenticity.

Harold knows that “luxury real estate” is not about finishes, amenities or design but how a home can enhance one’s quality of life. Harold’s clients consistently emphasize that more time with loved ones and experiencing life’s joys is what they want most and that’s what he delivers. That’s what “luxury” is. Harold lives in Honolulu with his wife and three children.

Paul B.


With a life straddling Beverly Hills and the Hawaiian islands, Paul brings a wealth of experience in the Hawaii’s resort market, projects sales, and resale in Beverly Hills, CA. Complimenting Harold’s 20 plus years of real estate expertise focused on the Hawaii market, Paul is deeply versed in both the Oahu and Maui markets. Having honed his skills in the ultra luxury Los Angeles market with Hilton & Hyland, Paul has circulated for nearly two decades in service of a wide array of Southern California’s wealthiest families.

After his first career as a national news producer, which afforded him accolades and travel around the world, Paul decided to follow in his father’s real estate path when he joined Beverly Hills’ preeminent brokerage, Hilton & Hyland. He served there for 17 years prior to joining Deep Blue HI. His California license is now with the premiere agency Carolwood, and his Hawaii license is with Deep Blue HI.

Paul’s long tenure in Beverly Hills allowed him to develop a sprawling west coast client base including Los Angeles’ wealthiest families. These clients appreciate Paul’s unwavering commitment to best-in-class service and his innate ability to address each individual’s unique needs. Known for his negotiation techniques, highly personalized service, and unwavering dedication, Paul’s proven his ability to navigate even the most difficult and complex deals. With nearly 20 years of experience in luxury residential sales, his experience includes a long roster of ultra luxury transactions, including a $45 million sale working with Jeff Hyland.

Beyond his success in the luxury single-family category, Paul has thrived in the luxury resort market breaking records on such projects as the Trump Tower Waikiki, where he and his team achieved a world record when they sold over $700 million worth of real estate in a single day. Needless to say, Paul is committed to bringing his passion and business savvy to every transaction.

Paul is no ordinary real estate professional and is well-equipped to execute the most intricate of transactions. With Paul’s arrival on Oahu along with his native Hawaiian wife and two kids, these islands and Deep Blue HI gain access to one of the world’s top real estate professionals.

For over a decade, I went back and forth between New York and Oahu, spending time in both places and getting to know the unique character and charm of each location. However, eventually, I knew that Oahu was where I wanted to settle down, and I haven’t looked back since. 

My personal experience of relocating and adapting to a new environment has given me a deep understanding of the challenges and opportunities that come with buying or selling a property, particularly in a new location. I’m well-equipped to help my clients navigate these challenges and make informed decisions that are right for them and their families. 

As an immigrant I understood at an early age the meaning of dedication, hard work, and honesty. I had a successful career as a hairstylist for over 20 years. During that time, I learned the importance of attention to detail, customer service, and the value of building lasting relationships with clients. Whether you are looking to buy or sell a property, I will work tirelessly to ensure that your goals are met and that you are satisfied with the outcome.

When it comes to selling your home, I understand that it can be an emotional and stressful experience. That’s why I will work with you every step of the way, from determining the right listing price to creating a marketing plan that will attract the right buyers. I have a keen eye for detail and will ensure that your home is presented in the best possible light to potential buyers. 

In addition to my own experience and expertise, I have the privilege of working with a team of top-producing real estate professionals who specialize in high-end properties and have access to a worldwide marketing reach. The Deep Blu Hi team is made up of seasoned agents who have a deep understanding of the luxury real estate market and can provide valuable insights and advice when it comes to pricing, marketing, and negotiating. We work together closely to ensure that our clients receive the best possible service and results.
