Justin Enos recommends Bobbin Tabalno

VP of Mortgage Lending

I work in the industry and worked with Bobbin many times for mutual clients. I trusted him to help me and my wife sell our Kapolei home. I'm happy I did, because the process was extremely stress free and from start to finish Bobbin kept us in the loop to make sure we were in the know about what was happening. It was so easy! Awesome real estate agent and I can't recommend him enough.

Noah woo recommends Justin Sedeno

Looking for an realtor that communicates with you and responds quickly? How about a realtor who spends time researching the market in your area to maximize your sale? Then stop looking because you found a realtor who does all that and more. From the very first step to the last Justin was a constant professional and a true pleasure to work with. Detailed and organized he exceeded all expectations and more.

Bea and Noel Magtanong recommend Bobbin Tabalno

Active Duty Military

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!!!

Gayle Griffith recommends Keahi Pelayo


When my friend, Joan, died suddenly in 2019 I found out that I was named as administrator of her estate which meant I would be responsible for selling her condo in Honolulu. (I was living in Philadelphia.) Joan had worked with Keahi before and I knew she would be happy to have me work with him. We started the process of selling in March 2019 which, unfortunately, coincided with the emergence of COVID. Between the State of Hawaii and the condo HOA there were lots of restrictions. It took a long time with barriers to cross, but Keahi and his team made my job so easy, taking care of everything. I couldn't be more satisfied and highly recommend Keahi.

Gretchen Molina recommends Justin Sedeno

Human Resources Specialist

Justin Sedeno,

Where do I begin!!!! He is literally the most reliable and professional realtor I've met. I have met a handful of realtors and I just felt very pressured into purchasing a new home, but with Justin, he allowed me to take me time and he still continued to send me new listings of homes I was interested in. I was very specific with what I wanted and he got it done!! He also was very honest when we asked for his opinion on different homes. He was always on our time and was very patient with us. I recommend him to everyone I know because of how amazing he is at his job!!!! I can finally say I'm a homeowner, thanks Justin! :)

Maya recommends Nathalie Champion

Transplant to Hawai‘i working hard and putting down roots in this beautiful state

Nathalie is everything you could hope for and more in a real estate agent! She is incredibly friendly, attentive, thoughtful, and customer-oriented. She listened carefully to what we were looking for in a home so that we didn't waste time looking at properties that wouldn't be a good fit. When we found the perfect home just a few weeks into our search, she was patient, practical, and goal-oriented as we went through the process of making an offer and negotiating with the seller. Her explanations were incredibly clear and easy to understand. She was supportive and helpful throughout the process, including bringing me chocolate when she could tell I was stressed out by it all! Now that I'm settling in to my new home, I want to express my deep gratitude to Nathalie and recoomend her enthusiastically to anyone considering buying or selling a property. Nathalie is truly a champion!

Larry Macias Jr recommends Bobbin Tabalno

Sr Manager Business Sales

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.

Erin McSherry recommends Nathalie Champion


I would recommend Nathalie in a heartbeat to anyone looking to purchase a home in Hawaii! From the very start, Nathalie was genuine and forthcoming and I could feel how much she loved her job. As a first time home buyer, embarking on this process can be scary but Nathalie provided me with all of the information I needed to know, was always honest about all of my options and assisted me in the decision making process every step of the way. She was immediately responsive anytime I needed anything and she was a fighter where she needed to be, shielding me from many of the unpleasant parts of the home buying journey. She was as excited as I was when I finally purchased my new home and it is clear to see why she loves her job, she is a natural born helper! Not only did I walk away with an amazing new home but I also left with a wonderful new friend!

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

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.

I am so grateful to Jodi for her expertise, dedication and kindness to help me find the perfect condo. She was always available to me and the prompt communication was much appreciated, even during weekends and evenings. I will definitely be recommending Jody to my friends and have a realtor and friend for life!

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.

Michael recommends Justin Sedeno

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.

I have known and worked with Keahi for almost 15 years with great success as well as personal satisfaction. He is thorough, professional, and a pleasure to work with for our mutual benefit.

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!
