Misti was was the most accommodating, responsive, and helpful realtor I’ve ever worked with in several states. She instilled confidence right away that she new the market and the nuances of the community. She’s honest and was an excellent advocate my family’s needs. She has continued to be helpful and responsive beyond the closing. I highly recommend her whether you’re looking to buy or rent.
Misti is an exceptional Realtor, Misti works diligently to promote your property and keeps you informed regularly of all activity in the sale process. Can highly recommend Misti to any one buying or selling real estate, and we will use her for many more transactions
Michael treated me with the upmost respect. His integrity is top notch! There were multiple times throughout my buying experience that Michael went above and beyond what was expected. True Aloha attitude!
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!
Amber suggested different options when negotiating with the seller. Amber kept us informed of the process. She’s knowledgeable and very pleasant to work with. She made the process quick and easy.
Lorena is very personable, prompt, and professional. She is very patient and willing to take whatever time is needed to help her clients. She gives honest advice and truly works for you. She respects your time, decision making and the fact that occasionally people are undecided and need time to think. I would recommend her without reservation!
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.
Knowledgeable, dependable, and a really nice guy. He made our home buying experience truly enjoyable. Highly recommend!
Michelle is amazing to work with and we can not recommend her enough! She knows her East Hawai’i and is incredibly accommodating if you’re buying remotely (we put an offer while we were abroad) as the perfect home came on the market while we were traveling. She even ensured we received videos that Iokua shot so we could be sure that the home photos reflected the actual home and weren’t just “show photos.” She’s great if you are going after a competitive home with many bids and helped guide us to “win” and she even connected us to a local mortgage company out of Hilo, Guild, which has been equally great to work with. Highly recommend her and she’s just a genuinely nice, caring person. We got an amazing home under budget and with all the big boxes ticked – and will be sure to work with her for future real estate needs on Hawai’i Island. She made our transition from Honolulu to Hilo a dream and so easy! Mahalo piha, Michelle!
Michael was amazing to work with, very responsive and timely. Handling both sides of the sale he was very attentive to both of our needs and maintained professional neutrality. So often he handled difficult situations for us and this made the sale so easy. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He is also very fun to be around.
