"Joyce was absolutely fantastic! She always made sure all processes stayed on track, all documents were received and sent immediately, and all communication was clear and concise. She is extremely knowledgeable about the local areas and the different markets. She was a strong advocate and representative for me through-out the process as well. She did an excellent job negotiating the price and fees. Joyce's attention to detail is second to none and it is clear that she takes her job and her client's interests very seriously. She provided sound advice as well as a very friendly and helpful demeanor at every step along the way. No question was too small and I never felt I couldn't go to her for help. She would give me frequent updates as the process went along and my questions were always answered immediately. Joyce is knowledgeable, professional, caring, helpful and all around a wonderful person. The whole buying experience felt like working with family.

All staff I dealt with were helpful, professional, and clearly took pride in their career. I'm grateful to all of them for helping me with the purchase process.
I will recommend Joyce and her team to everyone looking to buy a home. Fantastic!"

"Joyce Ariyoshi is the best! I strongly recommend her if you are looking to buy the home of your dreams. With her expert-level knowledge about the Hawaii housing market and her many years of experience, Joyce was able to provide invaluable advice and recommendations throughout the entire buying process. Her exceptional services were second to none, and I feel so fortunate to have had someone like Joyce to guide me through one of the most important decisions of my life.
Joyce spent a great amount of time researching and taking me to property sites to find the perfect unit to fit my needs. She pointed out things to consider about each unit that I would never have thought of, which made it easier for me to choose the right place. She tenaciously pursued answers to important questions about the property without me having to ask her to do so or to follow up on the progress. Joyce gets things done, and she will put in the work to see everything through.
Joyce always has a positive attitude and often goes above and beyond the call of duty to help in any way she can and provide the best outcome for her clients. You really can't go wrong with Joyce by your side."

"Joyce Ariyoshi did an excellent job in all aspects of my sale. This was a first time sale for me, and Joyce was very patient in walking me through every step of the process.
Joyce exceeded my expectations in many ways. She is a strong negotiator and was able to sell my condo for an excellent price, in spite of the current market situation. She took the initiative and went the extra mile to lower my closing costs, showing that she cares about her client’s needs and will work hard for their benefit. She spent a lot of time and effort to make a professional presentation of my unit on the market, and I had a lot of interest from prospective buyers because of this.
Joyce’s extensive knowledge and experience enabled us to resolve unexpected issues that suddenly occurred at the last minute so that we were still able to close on time. She also spent days researching and reaching out to vendors on my behalf and helped me find one of the few on the list who could do the job. I can always rely on Joyce to save the day!
Joyce is very personable, honest, and thorough. She provided me with a high level of attention, was very responsive to communications, and was available at any time of day.
It is such a pleasure to work with Joyce and I highly recommend her to anyone who is selling their home."

"Joyce Ariyoshi had a tough sell but she handled it professionally and skillfully. Her recommendations for preparing the property were excellent and effective. It was a small deal for her but a big deal for me. She worked hard and was successful. She is professional in every respect and she is a friend for life."

"After determining what we were looking for, we purchased the second unit Joyce Ariyoshi showed us. Not only did she make the transaction stress free, she made it enjoyable. She was personable, knowledgeable, and professional. She anticipated our questions and concerns and answered them almost before we could ask them. Once the process started, she showed amazing attention to detail and we felt she did everything in her power to make sure we got the best deal possible and that the unit was in perfect condition. We trusted her from the start and followed her recommendations for financing, termite and home inspection, 1031 exchange, and an escrow company. They all did excellent work. It was a pleasure to experience such a high degree of professionalism at every level of the transaction. Would we recommend Joyce to our family and friends? Absolutely!"

"Our family recently relocated from Southern California (Los Angeles) to Hawaii and we are very happy and pleased with the services and support provided by Joyce throughout the process of purchasing our home! Buying a house on the island of Oahu is not an easy process; yet, Joyce made everything run so smoothly! She is extremely generous with her time and availability and always responded to our questions with plentiful of information, regardless of whether we were inquiring on a potential home for sale, the neighborhood, the weather, the culture, the politics or something totally irrelevant! She consistently and immediately responded back to our calls in the mornings, evenings and even weekends. She is an exceptional real estate agent in every aspect - endlessly patient, insightful, resourceful, knowledgeable, personable, approachable, non-judgmental, and most of all highly attentive to details. Without her diligent work and support, we would have not been able to meet our goal of buying our desired first home on the island, within less than 45 days, thus, saving us so much $$$ for vacation rental. We are very grateful for her guidance and can’t possibly imagine having a more positive experience! We highly recommend her without reservation to anyone looking to buy a property in Oahu!!"

"Joyce has been helping buy a house for about a year, last year my credit was just not where it should be, but she still stuck with me and because of that I called her this year when my credit and income was better. Joyce is totally awesome, she is very knowledgeable about homes and the markets and in-fact if not for her coaching and guidance I would not be in my home today. She knows the ins and outs of Hawaii markets, but that is not all, she also is knowledgeable of home repairs, improvements, flooring, things that sellers should do, things that I should do and she basicly carried me through the entire process from start to finish, in fact she even stepped up on short comings on the loan processing side. Joyce was committed and willing to do the extra things needed to get me and my family into our home and we are very greatful to her for what she did. I will send all of my family and in-laws and friends to her! Mahalo Nui Loa Joyce!!!"

"We had a personal referral who recommended Joyce. After sitting down with Joyce and reviewing her impressive portfolio, we were absolutely convinced that she would be the right fit to represent us and our interests with the sale of our home.
We could not have been more pleased to have worked with Joyce. Her strong record, experience, and advice really helped my wife and I throughout the entire process. Joyce handled all aspects of the sales experience with great professionalism and expedience. We would strongly recommend Joyce to anyone interested in selling or buying a property here in Hawaii.
Joyce did a tremendous job communicating with us throughout the entire process. We always felt like we were in good hands."

"Joyce Ariyoshi was there for us the whole step of the way. She kept an eye on the sale our home and knew just exactly when things needed to be done. She is such a positive person. She felt like family by the time our escrow closed. We would highly reccomend her to anyone in the position of buying or selling a home"

"It is always the people relations and not the Realty that will either determine the outcome of your home buying experience. We were blessed to have picked Joyce Ariyoshi as our agent/broker to assist us in buying our home in Hawai’i. Knowledge of the job and local area is the most important attributes we look for when choosing a Real Estate Agent/Broker. Trust, mannerism, availability, and patience were key factors in sticking with Joyce until we bought our house. She is a joy to work with and we would recommend Joyce Ariyoshi."
