Kristy goes above and beyond in securing her clients best interest! She show’d my wife and I several properties. We have only been on island for a couple months so it was a breathe of fresh air to have her guidance in finding the best home for my family. She is super down to earth and at the same time very confident and knowledgeable of the area. She negotiated several “bonus points” of the sale as well as getting our property at 15% less than the asking price. She even played with my daughters while my wife and I looked at the different properties. Mahalo Kristy!
Lorena Clever is personable, professional, knowledgeable, reliable, prompt, very committed to her client. I met Lorena by chance, when a friend called us about a house for sale on Hea Hea St. which happened to be her listing. I took a chance and asked her to help us find a house in Hilo. It was totally worth it, she was amazing. Worked tirelessly every day, 7 days a week, Always available when we had questions or saw a listing that took our interest. It took about 6 months to find the right home. But, she stuck with us. I would highly recommend Lorena Clever. We closed on our Hilo house December 7, 2016. Love her, she did a fantastic job. Can’t say enough?
Misti was one of several realtors I contacted prior to moving to the big island, but I went with her because she was the most accommodating, responsive, and helpful. She instilled confidence right away that she new the market and the nuances of the community. She’s honest and always had my best interest in mind. She made meeting my family’s needs and desires in a home a priority. She has continued to be helpful and responsive beyond the closing. I highly recommend her whether you’re looking to buy or rent.
I’ve bought and sold a home with Amber. She’s dependable and honest. Walks you thru every step and awesome at explaining things. She takes care of the things you need and takes the stress out of the entire process.
Very thorough, great communication
When we ( the sellers, based on the mainland) first met Michael, we had just lost a good friend, inherited her house in Hawaii, and my wife was undergoing chemo for stage III/IV Cancer. The buyer, also on the mainland, was purchasing the house sight unseen, and planned to transport horses and dogs to the property. To say that the situation was both complicated and challenging would be an understatement. Michael was the glue that held us ALL together…and brought the transaction to a successful close. He is knowledgeable, experienced, and unendingly compassionate. It was our privilege to work with him and we recommend him without hesitation!
Kristy was a dream to work with. With short notice she was able to arrange showings of all the homes we asked to see and was very easy going and knowledgable throughout the day. Once we had decided on a home her follow up was prompt and detail-oriented. She was easy to get a hold of and quick to answer our questions throught the home buying process. If you are looking for a hardworking trustworthy realtor, then I highly recommend Kristy, especially for a frist time buyer like myself.
Amber is really helpful! Listen to what your wants and dont wants are, will give you the best advice when it comes to home buying!! She is very responsive and will answer any questions you have, if she doesn’t know she will lead you to someone who does
Amber was a pleasure to work with to buy a house. She accommodated me in all of the houses I wanted to look at in a short period of time. She was always prompt to respond to any questions I had and is very knowledgeable in her field. She also gave me great advice and recommendations when I asked, pointing me to a lender, who has been a great as well. I look forward to working with Amber again in the future! Mahalo nui loa!!!
My name is Russell Rodrigues and I intended to use Amber Chandler as my Realator. She is a very professional realtor and we are blessed to have Amber for the purchase of our new home. She is very easy to get in contact with when you have questions or need an answer. I would definitely recommend her to my family and friends when they plan to purchase a home.
