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!
We’ve worked with a lot of realtors in the 11 real estate transactions we’ve completed, and Misti was the clear standout. We worked through the deal almost exclusively online, and her help with the virtual tour, all the vendors, answering lots of questions since it was an out-of-state transaction from the mainland, her patience (our first deal fell through) was immeasurable. She is a consummate professional with tremendous expertise in all areas of the rental market, and while she specializes on the east side, made an exception to help us out purchasing on the west side. Additionally, her kind, generous and authentic self made working with her a real pleasure. She is the only realtor we would consider using for any other property purchases on the island and you really need to look no further than Misti.
Amber was very responsive and respectful us and our needs!
Without Michael’s diligence & real estate acumen, we would not be now living in our present home, which matches our needs & desires perfectly.. He went through A very trying time in the process of selling our former home, then found the new one before it was even listed for sale
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!
Very astute, professional, friendly, easy to communicate with and knows his biz. We couldn’t be happier with him as our agent. We would highly recommend Michael Miller.
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!
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.
Amber Chandler has been a fantastic real estate agent for us. She has been kind, patient, professional, very responsive and informative. We would not hesistate to work with her again. Thank you so much Amber for all your hard work and diligence
