When my wife and I decided to sell our house we were contemplating whether to used a real estate agent or not. But when we did decided to use a realtor, Bobbin Tabalno was one of the agent who was highly recommended and they were right. He was outstanding! Prior to choosing him as our real estate agent, we conducted our own research to find who would be the best choice based on the time and effort, plus, investment made into selling the property, including promotion listings. Bobbin Tabalno of Coldwell Banker Pacific Properties Team stood out as one the best. They are ranked amongst the best in Hawaii! They are a team of professional, their site listings are easy to find, their social media presence are well know, and they put a lot pride on every house that are listed. When we spoke with Bobbin about our house and expectations. He spent countless hours answering our questions, providing informative data based how many homes sold in the area, the market values, and the lengths of homes listed typically stay on the market. Our concerned is that our house, are located in a heavily traffic congested area, far from downtown and in a neighborhood with hundreds more homes are being built, but Bobbin reassured us that if we follow his advice and took extra steps to improve the value of house that he can sell our house at a market price. Always a professional, he give us staging tips, hired a professional photographer for the photos, and so many more. When our house was finally listed my wife and I were so amazed how beautiful house looked. His advice and knowledge in real state business really paid off - our listing stood out above the competition. The moment our house was listed in the market we had many offered immediately giving us competitive prices which were above the market values. Our house was sold and closed in less than a month after it was put on the market, at way above the market price. When we accepted the buyer's offer, Bobbin, along with Tanya McBride of First American Title Inc., who was also very knowledgeable and helpful, walked us through every step of the closing process. They both made our first home selling experience pleasantly easy. If anyone is looking for the best real state agent? I highly recommend Bobbin Tabalno, Coldwell Banker Pacific Properties Team. They are truly a very knowledgeable professional team! You will not find a better Realtor.

We cannot thank Bobbin enough for his assistance in selling our home. He is talented and really knows the ins and out of the home buying, selling, and even property management (renting). He was able to get things done that our property manager couldn’t. When we decided to sell we picked him to handle all our affairs. The process was seamless and he made it look and feel effortless. We aren’t local and sold our Hawaii home from the mainland. He kept us in the loop every step of the way and even did a weekly check in call to make sure we were up-to date on what step of the process we were in even though we were in constant contact via email and text throughout the week. His diligence and attention to detail is remarkable. He handles everything meticulously. We even ended up closing early!!! I could not recommend or gloat about Bobbin more! Mahalo Bobbin for everything!!!

I've been in the market for a couple of years now, and even during that time whenever I had any questions about buying a house, Bobbin was always there to answer them for us. From the beginning of the buying process, Bobbin explained to us very clearly what to expect over the next 30 days. His knowledge of the market, the loan process, inspections needed, and negotiation made our buying experience amazing! Bobbin always had our best interest in mind, and went beyond our expectations. He really made us feel like part of his family. If you're ever in the market for a home, I would absolutely recommend Bobbin.

Mr. Bobbin Tabalno is the ultimate realtor whether you are selling or buying a home. In my case, he has done both! When I left Honolulu a few years ago, I thought I'd be moving to Washington State forever and Bobbin was there to help me prepare my condo in town for sale -- from the walk-through, his suggestions for minor improvements were spot on. The condo sold in a very short period of time! Now, almost 3 years later, I realized I really would be happier living back in Hawaii where I spent 30 years together with my now deceased husband. Of course, I reached out to Bobbin to help me find my forever home, and he did! The walk-through of the few places we narrowed down through virtual comms (on video chats with me) was successful immediately! He took care of connecting me with the right lender and escrow company ... and all the paperwork that is entailed in purchasing a home. His personal touch is what makes Bobbin a tremendous realtor.

Bobbin Tabalno is efficient, reliable, and straight forward. He helped us buy our apartment and helped us sell it and both times he made the entire process very quick and painless. He will always keep in contact with you to make sure you know everything thats going on and you will never feel like you have to worry as long as he is on your side.

Bobbin was our realtor when we bought our first home, and he was our realtor when we sold it several years later after deciding to leave Hawaii. He was the definition of professional in every step of the process. He knows the laws, has the relationships on the island, and understands the market. I would highly recommend Bobbin to anyone looking for a realtor in Hawaii.

Bobbin was amazing he worked around me and my wife�s schedule as we were coming to the island. He made sure he kept constant contact from his initial welcome until we closed. He was ver thorough when explaining most of the buying lingo. He also took the time to recommend eating spots as well as different services for the house like a carpet cleaner and hone inspector. Bobbin has went above and beyond with helping us purchase our first home. He genuinely cares about the people he services.

There aren't enough positive words in the dictionary to express my gratitude for Bobbin's amazing professionalism! My best friend referred me to him and said "he walks on water and basically is a miracle worker!" ...I obviously had my doubts. But, Bobbin helped me with my VERY first home purchase!! I looked at ONE home, fell in love and within 30 days, closed on my very first home...all with Bobbin's help. He is very thoughrogh at explaining all the things home seekers and owners should look for as well as what others don't tell you. It was information overload for me, but he was always patient and explained so I could understand it all. I'm one happy, grateful and satisfied customer!!

We first met Bobbin Tabalno during a showing of a condominium apartment. He made suggestions over the long period of months and we viewed each option via their listing portal. He encouraged us to get our finances in order and we met with a banker to discuss our financial status and secured approvals. This allowed us to determine out upper limit for making offers with some guidance from Bobbin on several homes. The bidding process with more buyers than sellers is a difficult brick wall to surmount. We believe that Bobbin's guidance was important for our final and successful acquisition of our current home. Bobbin's guidance in navigating through the escrow process to closing was very supportive. There were no surprises and the process proceeded smoothly. Bobbin's advance for getting our finances in order and obtaining bank mortgage approvals shortened the process of loan underwriting and escrow very significantly to under 30 days. We were very appreciative of Bobbin's abilities as a communicator and level of professionalism at guiding the successful purchase of a home residence.

Although this was a very unique process and challenging at times for everyone, Bobbin remained professional and communicated very well with all the updates. Bobbin treated our family very well and went beyond what was expected of him to help. We will forever appreciate the extra support he gave us in buying our first home. THANK YOU BOBBIN.

I highly recommend Bobbin Tabalno for your real estate sale or if you are looking to buy a home. From the very start Bobbin was very professional and attentive. He kept us informed at all times on the process of selling the property. Bobbin went over and beyond as a real estate Agent. He recommended things that needed to be done before the sale and took matters into his own hands and worked with our family prior to the final sale of the home. What impressed me most about Bobbin was his integrity, and honesty. Mahalo Bobbin for your dedication and working with us. I appreciate your time and effort with this sale. Mahalo Nui Loa!

I have know Bobbin for at least two years now, I met him at an open house and the moment I met him he won me over. He helped me purchase my first home and when it came time for me to sell i immediately picked him again. Bobbin is phenomenal and provides excellent service. If you have the chance I definitely would recommend you choosing him.

We bought a house with Bobbin's help a few years ago, and we were very pleased with the results. So it was only natural that he help us sell when we needed to PCS again to another state, and we weren't disappointed. We know he had other clients, but we always felt like his only and best customer by the prompt responses to questions. We had very little to figure out and do as Bobbin guided us through every step of the process, keeping us posted at every milestone, and helping us to close escrow early. His ethical and professional behavior made us comfortable in knowing we made a good choice in real estate professionals.

My husband and I recently left Hawaii and Bobbin helped us sell our house. He expertly came in, gave great advice to help us get a good price, and coordinated with the buyer's agent and escrow company, so we had very little we needed to do. Bobbin jumped through hoops to produce good looking promotional items, hold open houses, and make sure the other realtors knew about our house. We had to leave the island early, and Bobbin made sure the house was well maintained in our absence. His service and attention to detail goes above and beyond. We are very thankful to have found Bobbin and his team to sell our house

Bobbin and his team were consummate professionals. Every time an issue came up, he was there with SOLUTIONS. I didn't hear him say "can't" once. Every request I made of him, it was done expeditiously and correctly the first time. He is friendly, hard-working, and patient; navigating me through the home-buying process with remarkable ease and professionalism. The two times I've worked with him, the process has been painless and rewarding. When I need a realtor, or anything homeowner related, he is my guy.

Bobbin was an amazing realtor to work with! He listened to what we did/didn't want in a home and then showed us places that fit the description. He gave us good advice on our offer and helped us through all the steps. He was always readily available when we had questions no matter how inconsequential. I would highly recommend to anyone that needs a realtor to work with Bobbin!!
