I'm so glad our Realtors took us to Irene. With this, my first experience working with her, she made this part of the escrow process so easy and pleasant for us, like, we just went along for the "ride", and then it was done. You can be sure that I would use her as our escrow person again.

It's difficult to use the term above and beyond with Irene because she sets the bar and is always making it higher.

Irene did a superb job of handling our escrow, keeping us up-to-date on each item as it progressed. Since we needed notarizations and are located in Anaheim, CA, Irene recommended and put us in touch with a notary near our home who could handle the paperwork. Nadja was a real estate licensee in the past and Irene was a prime example of how an escrow officer should conduct the transaction, as there were very few of the escrows Nadja dealt with handled so professionally. The problem of logistics - California to Hawaii - in this transaction were handled smoothly and without complication. Irene = 10 stars!!

Irene is great! She kept in touch with me through out the whole process and answered all questions and concerns that I had. I love how straight foraward she is and she shows that she actually cares about her clients. I would recommend her to anyone who is considering buying a new home. Thank you so much Irene, you’re awesome!

Irene Benz is amazing! She is seamless and knows how to get everything done in a timely matter, even when we have to close in 30 days or less. I have been selling real estate in Hawaii for 8 years and I try to use her on every transaction I do. She also handled the escrow of my personal residence and she was wonderful at helping me and my husband purchase our home together. She is a wonderful woman and I hope to be doing business with her for many years to come.

Irene is always amazing! I have been selling real estate on the Big Island for 8 years now. She is my "go to" woman anytime I am getting ready to open escrow. She is seamless, punctual, and compassionate to all parties involved. I look forward to many more escrows with Irene!

Very satisfied customers!
In a word, Irene has been awesome! We had asked her to do the almost Herculean task of needing to have a closing in a short amount of time before we headed for a prior planned long vacation. She said, "Shouldn't be a problem, I can get that done." And...she did! Always there when we needed her. Every step of the way she was there taking care of us. A very big mahalo!

Amazing transaction as per the usual with Irene! She does the best job, over and over again. I can’t thank you enough for all of your great work. I look forward to many more escrows with her!
