Very professional and saved me thousands of dollars. Always made time for me.
What a wonderful experience! Ida handled all of the process like a seasoned professional. She absolutely shined in all aspects. Her input was critically important, not like agents I’ve had in the past who sold us short. Ida had our interest in mind, and clearly had my back. Highly recommend her to all!!! Mahalo for such a great person!
She was very helpful and explained what needed to be done. She seems organized.
We were referred to Misti by our California realtor. We live in California and were searching for a home on the Big Island. Misti has gone above and beyond to help us pursue our dream! She is knowledgeable, kind, funny, has a great personality, and was a true pleasure to work with. Buying a home anywhere is stressful, but buying a home over 2000 miles away is a whole different story. Misti made the entire process as easy and stress free as possible. We highly recommend her!
Caleb was very detailed and was very easy to access via email, text or just a phone call. He laid out all the steps and gave me all the information well ahead of any deadlines. Caleb was also instrumental in dealing with a difficult seller.
Caleb Yamanaka is a personable, trustworthy, diligent and driven realtor. Caleb was able to navigate a few situations that needed some extra TLC in both my purchase of a property and selling of another. I greatly appreciate his experience in several industries and within the Big Island community. He is very quick to respond to any questions or concerns from all parties involved. Caleb Yamanaka and his staff are definitely a true gems in the Realestate field here on Hawai’i Island!
Amber was excellent! She kept us well informed throughout the whole process and even assisted us when small issues arose that were from our end. She made the process seem effortless! Mahalo Amber!
To anyone considering hiring a real estate agent to assist you to buy or sell a home and/or land in East Hawaii, I highly recommend you take the time to meet Michael Miller. I have known Michael, both personally and professionally, for over fifteen years. When it came time to list a house and land we were selling, of course, we wanted to work with Michael. I will admit to bias, as Michael is my personal friend, however, I must report that Michael did such an outstanding job from ‘start to finish’ that I just had to write this review. We all know that buying or selling a home or property involves many factors: MLS listing, photos, drone video, advertising, showing, escrow, etc, however, when buying or selling East Hawaii, often it doesn’t matter so much what you know, rather what’s important is who you know and who they know- to get the job done in a timely manner. Michael has worked hard for many years to establish personal working relationships with key business associates (loan officers, escrow administrators, maintenance companies, inspectors, contractors, etc.) in all areas of his industry. This is very important in East Hawaii, as conducting business personally, professionally and ‘with Aloha’ is appreciated by all. In the beginning of my home/land sale, Michael and I met and talked. He explained the market, I explained my goals and desires. Then together we formed a strategy which worked perfectly during bidding negotiations at escrow. I walked away receiving almost exactly my goal price – after negotiations. Michael explained every document, every step of the way, before I signed anything. I felt completely informed, engaged and at-ease with the process Michael has developed and earned a great reputation as a businessman and realtor. If I had to describe Michael Miller in a few words, they would be “honesty, integrity, good for his word (rare these days), great sense of humor, and he knows his industry and really knows how to sell or buy properties in East Hawaii”. Some business people hold their professional ethics and standards to a ‘higher’ level. This is true in all industries- and you are blessed if you get to work with such people. This is Michael Miller. Give him a call. Dr. Gregory Pouls Kaiwiki, Hilo, HI
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.
My husband and I were just toying with the idea of buying a house on the big island when we decided to stop in at an open house we saw driving around. We are so grateful we did, because we got to meet Lorena! She was very professional, dilligent and patient. She sent us listings and checked in with us for a year and was very knowledgeable and accomodating when we needed her to walk us through remotely via videocall as we were purchasing from the mainland. She always gave good advice and recommendations, even though they might negatively impact her (advising not to bid so much for a home as there would be less room for it to mature…which means a lower potential commission for her). Having worked with several other realtors over the years, Lorena is by far the best. She even checked up on us while on vacation internationally. We appreciate her so much and would defintely work with her again!
