Amanda Evans recommends Carolina Davis

Satisfied Seller!

Carolina Davis did a great job selling our beach-front condo. She was kind and professional, and helped us navigate our way through a tough market while still maintaining our desired price-point. She was actually out of state when we got our final offer on the property, but her distance didn’t interfere with contract ratification! She gets the job done even when traveling! My husband and I enjoyed working with her and would recommend her to friends. Mahalo & Aloha Carolina!

Chris and Carole Hironaga recommend Jodi Mews

Federal Employees

Jodi helped us to purchase our home on Oahu when we moved there for our jobs in 2016. We were so impressed with Jodi that we decided to select her to sell our home as well- a challenging experience with a newborn baby and during the COVID-19 pandemic. Jodi is a proactive professional, will work hard to get you what you want while giving sage recommendations along the way, and will make your life easy. I could not give Jodi a higher recommendation- she started out helping us buy a house and ended up being a family friend.

Adele M Barres recommends Keahi Pelayo

President of Fiddlesticks Too, Inc.

I really enjoyed working with Keahi. He worked really hard to make the sale of property as smooth as possible and was always available for questions. His staff was also extremely helpful. He is also a very nice guy.

DariAnne Smith recommends Nathalie Champion

Preschool Educator

I really don’t even know where to start when it comes to describing how amazing Nathalie is. She is honestly a dream realtor.

My husband and I began looking for homes over a year ago and Nathalie was helpful from the very beginning. She never hesitated to answer our questions no matter how many times we asked. It’s clear that she loves what she does for a living and she goes out of her way to make sure her clients are happy. I can be easily intimated to ask the hard questions, but Nathalie creates such a comforting atmosphere that I was able to ask without fear of judgement.

After a year of looking, we found the perfect home, and she did everything she could to make the process as smooth as possible. Purchasing a home during a pandemic is crazy, but Nathalie definitely was the calm in the midst of the storm.

My husband and I are so grateful for her as we are now in our dream home. Thank you so much Nathalie!!

Yolande Fong recommends Bobbin Tabalno

Retired from Work, Not Life!

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.

Keebong Jhang Jr. recommends Keahi Pelayo

Satisfied Client

It was my first time selling a property so I was a little apprehensive. Had my first meeting with Keahi, and all my worries were taken care of. He answered all of the questions I had, and also anticipated others that came up. During the process of putting the property on the market all the way to closing, the thing I appreciated the most was Keahi's communication. Every week he would update me on the status of the sale. Sometimes he would call just to say hi and make sure that I didn't have any problems and was comfortable with everything. Being that it was my first time doing anything with real estate, he took the time to explain the process and any of the jargon I didn't understand. If I'm ever in the position to buy or sell a property again, I would definitely go with Keahi. 110% recommend!!

Shane Um recommends Justin Sedeno

Justin did an amazing job. This purchase was a few years in the making, and not once did Justin make me feel any pressure to purchase. He kept his eye open, and found a perfect home for me. He was always available for any questions I had. I always felt like I could trust that what Justin told me was always in my best intrest. He's the man

Ken & Yuko recommend Carolina Davis

Carolina spent a tremendous amount of time and effort to help us sell our house. She did a fabulous job in helping prepare the home for sale and hosting open houses. She even assisted with coordinating with vendors to do minor repairs and upkeep on our home. Carolina really went above and beyond our expectations. She is super friendly and very personable. We would absolutely work with Carolina in the future, and we give a strong recommendation to anyone who is looking for a realtor.

Although it was a long time going through the sale of my house and slot of up and downs, Justin was always helpful through out this period. He would offer to do more than he had to which made things slot easier for me.I would recommend Justin to be your realtor any time, he's a great person to work with.

Alana Miranda recommends Keahi Pelayo

I am grateful for a successful and timely 3-4 month process on the sale of our family home. Keahi kept me posted on all aspects of the sale, had knowledge with trusts, and has a team of professionals who were quite pleasant to work with on listing, lockbox and signage, viewings, open houses, offers, inspections and escrow. Land Court was something I was not familiar with, but all was handled in an orderly fashion, no guess work, all his expertise and experience provided us with a smooth transaction. I am happy to provide a professional recommendation for Keahi Pelayo and KU Realty. Sincere mahalo to you and your team, Keahi. It has been a wonderful experience to work with a caring, professional team in the sale of our family home of nearly 70 years, with many so many good memories. We wish the new owners many happy memories in their new home!

Justin is one of the best Realtors I’ve worked with. He was really patient in my home buying experience always treating me with the utmost respect. Especially when I was between houses.

David R recommends Keahi Pelayo

Property Owner

We were recommended to Keahi by a local Honolulu legal firm with which we had done some business related to the property. They said Keahi was the best of the best. They were right in all respects. Professional, knowledgeable, and with a level of patience and customer service that is unparalleled in my opinion. He is on top of everything, he always keeps you in the loop, never drops the ball, and JUST DOES HIS JOB, exactly as he says he'll do it. Can't say enough about how good he was for us.
