"Myron and his team were with us every step of the way in this process. They were very responsive to our needs and in giving us suggestions to make the sale go more quickly. I feel that they truly earned the commission that was paid with all the effort and coordination of events that they put into this sale."

"Myron Kiriu's attention to detail is clearly demonstrated throughout the entire transaction, making sure that title is clear of any "nuisance" that may cause headaches in the future. Thank you."
George Wong, Honolulu (Buyer) Fri, 29 Nov 2019 05:57:38 +1000
"Myron did two things extremely well during this process in selling our home, (1) setting us up with the right adjustments and personnel to make our home attractive enough to sell, and (2) supporting us through the closing process with his excellent team.
Because of those two factors, we were able to get an offer within a week and sell our home within a month. In the escrow process, his team constantly made us feel assured and comfortable through closing. We are excited at the prospect of working with him again in the future."
Joseph Manfre, Honolulu (Seller) Sun, 03 Nov 2019 13:58:19 +1000
"Myron and his crew were always on top of the situation and or problems as they occurred"

"I don't know what I would have done if I didn't get the help I needed from Myron Kiriu and staff . I would have been left in the dark to figure out things . So truly grateful for their professional, hard work and no stop attitude along with knowledgeablity and understanding , respectable as well . Again above and beyond and again getting the price I was looking for. Again truly Amazing to Myron Kiriu and Staff. Highly Endorse and Recommended."

"Myron's team members made a difference in how we felt about using BHGRE. Great teamwork, hard work by everyone, keeping commitments, making the process easier, such as pick up of checks/documents was very crucial - especially for us as busy professionals with kids to take care of."
Corey Fujii (Seller) Sun, 18 Aug 2019 13:19:47 +1000
"Having lived the majority of the last 14 years in Kailua, I was familiar with real estate agents in and around the Windward Passage tower. I had 3 agents in mind, but my daughter-in-law, Lucy suggested I invite Myron to my unit to give me his opinion. He won the deal and the rest is history. This transaction was completed by telephone and Internet. Appreciated receiving the documents in a timely manner and getting answers to any questions promptly. Sherrie Sasaki was especially kind and understanding. Thank you Sherrie."
Eleanor Chelini (Seller) Mon, 05 Aug 2019 04:18:48 +1000

"We were impressed with the way Myron & his team handled our property. This is our fourth transaction & we have high Regards for him & his highly competent team."
George Berean, Honolulu (Seller) Sat, 20 Jul 2019 03:29:56 +1000
"I knew Myron Kiriu is a superstar in real estate business he has a team force for his business, but I did not know the real meaning of his advantage of his way of business with his team. Each member of Myron's team has high specialty. However, Myron Kiriu himself has the highest quality of each of all specialties and each specialist (member) has very good communication with Myron Kiriu and with me. He not only hired specialists but also trained his members to be sharpened and he himself can concentrated on the critical transaction in person. On both of selling and buying my properties, Myron Kiriu and his team members were willing to respond many of my requests and concerns. As a result, it took only just 2-months from the first open house to moving to my newly purchased condo! (March 13 to May 13) Traditionally one individual real estate agent takes care of everything, which limits the scope of quality and specialty of business, but Myron's way of doing business with his great team is epoch making difference from the traditional way of this real estate business. I really think I am lucky I knew Myron Kiriu and he produced great result more than I had expected that was really high since I had known Myron Kiriu. Thank you, Myron!"
Mitsuo Kishi (Buyer) Thu, 16 May 2019 06:25:15 +1000
"Myron Kiriu is the agent everyone needs - trustworthy and professional.
Myron's vast professional experience offered great advise and led us to multiple offers after the first open.
Myron's Team has been amazingly helpful in every aspects throughout the entire process. We had the smoothest sales transaction ever completed!
Having worked with Myron on multiple transactions, we would recommend Myron Kiriu without hesitation."
Peter & Magda, Hawaii Kai (Seller) Tue, 16 Apr 2019 19:22:02 +1000
"Excellent real estate company and great service with a smile from everyone working there !

Glenna Gaddy (Seller) Fri, 25 Jan 2019 05:54:04 +1000
"The Team’s management of the closing process and necessary logistics was exceptional.
We felt completely at ease with Myron, Amber and Sherri Sasaki’s handling of our transaction. They set a very high bar for performance and integrity.
All team members provided exceptional and courteous service. Linda and I happily recommend Team Kiriu."
Garrett Grace, HONOLULU, HI (Seller) Wed, 23 Jan 2019 13:06:12 +1000
"Myron kept in touch with us
From beginning to closed
So reliable, honest. Professional
We are so satisfied with his team
Taizo Murata Waialae iki (Seller) Mon, 14 Jan 2019 06:19:54 +1000
"Trustworthiness was utmost in my selection of Myron Kiriu. His commitment, overall experience & knowledge, and confidence in dealing with the transaction from beginning to end were also significant factors.
Sue Jo of Myron's team, did a great job in all aspects of the sale, from preparation of the property; to open house, inspection and other activities; and through closing.
Myron Kiriu did an outstanding job! He demonstrated his vast knowledge of the Oahu marketplace and of the contractual and all other issues that were encountered. Myron being "hands-on" throughout the process made it worry free for me. I would recommend Myron Kiriu to family and friends, without hesitation."
Jennifer, Honolulu, Hawaii (Seller) Tue, 27 Nov 2018 13:01:46 +1000
"Myron made sound recommendations to us. His communication and negotiation skills were impressive. I believe we would have made less money on our sale if we went to another broker.
The entire team was knowledgeable and professional. The whole process from the initial meeting to the closing went smoothly. We were continuously informed on a timely basis."
Chris, Honolulu (Seller) Sun, 28 Oct 2018 07:42:40 +1000
"I only recommend Myron and his team to my friends. My family and I have known and trusted Myron and Amber for over 15 years and they have performed miracles with all our transactions. Over the years, Myron's expertise, success and knowledge have reached new heights, yet he remains the great character he is who takes the time to cover all the bases and meet with me over every detail. He still "educates" me in the paths of negotiating the best real estate decisions for both buyer and seller.
Myron's team arranged for all the preparations, renovations, improvements needed to show the property; I didn't even have to go to the property once Myron and his team took over, except to admire the improvements. Myron predicted a price that brought in multiple offers in less than a couple of days, with the property going into escrow at an even higher price, just a few days after the first showing. He went over all the offers with me, citing both advantages and disadvantages and I was grateful for all his advice which ended up in a closing that went without a single hitch.
Myron and Amber and their team have performed multiple miracles for our family over the years, embraced all of us, and have cared for us with thoughtfulness, respect, and kindness. Myron makes real estate fun."
Holly Chung Lindsay (Seller) Wed, 24 Oct 2018 04:58:42 +1000
"I never worry about getting the critical small details right when dealing with Myron and his staff. They are on top of it from start to finish."
Ed & Susie Neffinger (Seller) Fri, 19 Oct 2018 15:36:31 +1000
"Team Kiriu was excellent. We felt members went beyond the call how they took care of our property. During Open House, one same comment overheard was that the house was "Well Maintained". We knew the age of the house and how it appeared before sale. But because of Team Kiriu's efforts, the house was made "well maintained" and it helped us to obtain our asking price and many offers. During a pending hurricane, team members took precautions for the house to ensure it's safety and protection.
Because of Myron’s leadership, his Team always kept us up to date with the buyers, tax attorney, contractors and bankers. They helped us better understand the language in the contracts. They mentioned to us that we had one of the most complicated real estate transaction with so many moving parts. We are so grateful that Myron and his team oversaw all the moving parts.
Myron Kiriu ensured every dollar was negotiated for and that the vendors provided us the best price and workmanship. Because of the trust and confidence we had with Myron Kiriu, a lot of our stress and worries faded away. Myron Kiriu was personally present at all of the critical inspections, decisions and negotiations required."
Arnold and Pam Young, Honolulu HI (Seller) Mon, 08 Oct 2018 16:28:43 +1000
"Myrons full service team approach was critical to our selection process
There was a huge amount of details that needed to be completed to bring the property to market specifically because of the
location in a condominium project with strict rules
Myron’s team approach allowed for many appointments and tasks to be completed while we were in the mainland
They made the experience seamless
Myron brings extraordinary level of energy and attention to his service and customer support
He is an outstanding agent
The Kiriu Team is a line up of all stars.
Each member is on top of their game and more than willing to go the extra mile to handle our needs
From the beginning to the end of the transaction and after Myron and his Team were the ultimate professionals and made the sale process flow seamlessly. Myron is highly experienced and pre thinks all the issues that we could experience up front. We have a vast experience of buying and selling Dozens of properties and Myron is by far the Top agent we have worked with in Hawaii California and Arizona.
We want to acknowledge Myron and his team for delivering excellent service.
John Finnegan Burlingame,Ca (Seller) Tue, 11 Sep 2018 02:38:16 +1000
"He is very professional and supportive to complete all processes successfully. He knows exactly what buyer and seller want to do and need to move forward. I've never seen this such a good agent in my life. I highly recommend to work with Myron."
Ryan Jung, Honolulu (Buyer) Sat, 01 Sep 2018 05:59:02 +1000
"I was searching for an agent that would look out for my interest and one with extensive experience so I wouldn't have to worry about researching real estate rules and practices myself. Myron's knowledge is amazing and I felt confident with being able to trust him and his guidance through the whole process.
I already told friends that they just MUST work with Myron if they ever need to buy/sell property because he is the "God" of Real Estate. I never thought there could be such a person especially since I can be very picky about who I hire for anything...but Myron has proven his reputation and now deserves my referrals for sure!
Throughout the entire process, there were countless changes yet, Team Kiriu didn't forget a single detail. They always made me feel like a special customer and called or emailed to make sure I got information right away. Every single member of their team had knowledge and expertise at a level beyond my expectations. They made me feel so comfortable and working with them was even at times fun!
If I had to give Team Kiriu a grade for their performance, it would be an A+. I got my perfect home and cannot be happier!"
Lorna Oyasato (Buyer) Fri, 31 Aug 2018 16:08:54 +1000
"We love Myron and his team. We would definitely use him again and would recommend him to our friends and family.

mike brashears (Buyer) Sat, 21 Jul 2018 05:48:55 +1000
"Myron and his team were awesome when weI decided to purchase the home we were renting. When I first approached him about considering to buy it, he came over to the house to evaluate it for me. As a third party, he was able to point out things I never saw about the home that might be a problem. He also gave me all the reasons why it mades sense to buy it and confirmed with me that the home was a good home. He was able to give me great advice on what I should offer the Seller and guided me through the home buying process. There were so many moving parts to the buying process like the contract itself, the home inspection, going over the property survey with me, how to hold title for the home and even the termite inspection and tenting process. Home buying is so complicated and stressful but Myron and his team were always there to answer all of my questions and keep me and my husband calm throughout the purchase. I would highly recommend Myron and Team Kiriu to anyone thinking of buying or selling a home. I could NOT have done this on my own!!"
Brian & Deb, Honolulu (Buyer) Sat, 14 Jul 2018 12:15:54 +1000

Derek Kanehira, Honolulu, Hawaii (Buyer) Wed, 30 May 2018 15:29:31 +1000
"Myron Kiriu has assisted us with over half a dozen of real estate transactions. We appreciate the high standards Myron and his team provides. No matter if we are the buyers or sellers, Myron always make sure we get the best deal. It’s comforting to know Myron has experts on his team to make sure the documents/contracts are properly prepared prior to us signing them.
As we all know, it’s not easy to trust a salesman but we can truly say Myron Kiriu has our trust. We know he will do a great job for us. Myron and his team are truly professionals. We would recommend them to our family and friends and any one else needing real estate assistance.

"Myron and his team at Better homes and Gardens were amazing. They really are a full service real estate agency and were so helpful in the sale of our home. I live in the mainland and having a professional team like Myron's was instrumental in the sale of our property. Everyone that helped with the sale were outstanding."
Lisa Meagher San Anselmo California (Seller) Sat, 28 Apr 2018 07:20:58 +1000
"Myron's team felt like family rather than a business. I felt at ease with them immediately. As I looked around for homes to buy, they would point out issues I wouldn't have noticed on my own. They were always very polite, friendly and never put me under pressure to make a decision to buy Swhich is sometimes the case with other brokers. Myron himself discouraged me from making a hasty decision and I ended up getting a place that was better than all others we had seen. It's a seller's market and Myron negotiates on your behalf. He is an excellent negotiator and I felt very comfortable letting him represent me. The services provided were beyond my expectations. it hasn't been my experience with others. The entire team was responsive to my requests for assistance and went out of their way to help. They often took the initiative to help with so many things that it made the entire process very smooth and stress-free Team Kiriu pays a lot of attention to detail and they are very meticulous about helping their client out down to providing a checklist for what one needs to do after the closing.
Thank you so much team Kiriu for everything. I would strongly recommend you to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a place. You have set the bar very high for real estate brokers."
Saira, Honolulu (Buyer) Sun, 01 Apr 2018 10:03:29 +1000
"Excellent service from Myron and his entire team. Took a lot of our worries away by making arrangements for us. We were always kept informed and advised us on any issues. A staff member was always there to monitor and assist with the house inspection, cleaners, appraisal, etc. Do not know what else could have been done to improve their quality of service. Or highest regards.
Extremely happy and grateful that we used him and his company. Great team work from staff, Sherrie, Leah, Jenni, Chris and Kerri and others.
Myron excels in all the above attributes.
Awesome agent, concept and staff."
Glenn & Carolyn Ako Colorado Springs,CO (Seller) Sun, 25 Mar 2018 15:47:01 +1000
"Myron Kiriu is a top notch real estate broker. He is very knowledgeable and professional, and was very patient and understanding every step of the way in my search for a new home. He had already earned my trust by helping me sell my previous home, and that was reinforced by my experience with him as a buyer's broker.
Myron has hand picked the best people to work with him, and they are an outstanding team, equally as patient and understanding as he is. They are so professional, and very clear about their knowledge and role in the transaction. I trust what they say and do, because I know they know their role and limits. They are extremely knowledgeable and competent in their areas of expertise. And genuinely nice people!
Overall, Myron Kiriu and his team were wonderful -- patient and prompt during the search for the right property, and dedicated to details during closing. I am very grateful to all of them for their help and support, and highly recommend Myron Kiriu."
J Creadick, Honolulu (Buyer) Sun, 25 Mar 2018 07:26:37 +1000
"Myron Kiriu exceeded my expectations at all levels. He was personally very friendly, open and approachable and his professionalism and expertise in real estate was obvious. I could not have asked for a better person to sell my family home. He not only sold my house for what I had asked for, but made the entire sale process from open house dates and times to the closing of escrow as timely and smooth as possible. There was absolutely nothing that I was disappointed in, and I have the highest recommendation for Myron Kiriu."
Shalane Sambor, Honolulu Hawaii (Seller) Sun, 04 Feb 2018 05:15:09 +1000
"We hit several snags along the way in a somewhat stressful buying experience, but Myron and his team were always available to answer questions and do a lot of “behind the scenes” work that I never even knew had to be done. His team was always clear with our options and they walked us through each step of the process. Looking back at everything, I don’t know how it could have been done any other way than with his team. I truly felt that they were always looking out for our best interests. I highly recommend Myron and his team!"
Yvette Konigsberg, Honolulu (Buyer) Thu, 21 Dec 2017 03:25:52 +1000
"This is our second transaction with Myron, and he continues to amaze me with his attention to detail. He picks up on some very slight, but potentially important details. Myron and his team are extremely trustworthy and competent when it comes to executing a sales strategy and negotiation. He and the team are also very good at communication and updates."
Bob Haber, Honolulu (Seller) Sun, 10 Dec 2017 10:41:50 +1000
"Liked his enthusiasm and the personal contact he gave as well as his experience."
Wilson, Hawaii (Seller) Fri, 01 Dec 2017 04:12:54 +1000
"Because he is such a well known and sought after broker, I thought my property would be too small for him to handle. My biggest mistake was not asking him to represent me sooner.
Although I already knew he was a premier broker, I was extremely impressed by his professionalism and that of every member of his team. From start to finish, they were all responsive, supportive, knowledgeable and result-oriented.
Myron, Ambur and their team are top notch. They have my trust, which is not easily won."

Myron impressed me right way and each decision we had to make together was the right one. You can fit in other things I said as you feel necessary.
Myron's superior knowledge of Real estate is what impressd me most."

Michael Frank, Kapolei (Buyer) Tue, 10 Jan 2017 08:11:34 +1000
"Although we owned a home in the past, it was an inheritance so this was our first home buying experience. We could not have picked a better person to help us than Myron Kiriu. He was there for us every step of the way. His knowledge of the local real estate market is unsurpassed. We enjoyed working with his staff especially Sherrie Sasaki. She was always kind, cheerful and friendly and handled our questions and concerns with the utmost professionalism. After only a few weeks of working with Myron and his staff, we felt like we had known them for years. They made us feel like family. We will recommend Myron to our family, friends, associates, and anyone looking to buy a home here in Honolulu."
Sheldon Wright Honolulu, Hawaii (Buyer) Fri, 23 Dec 2016 04:27:48 +1000
"Having used Myron and his team for close to 20 years on 10+ real estate transactions (sales and purchases), there is no other broker that we would consider. We would definitely recommend him to family and friends. Team Kiriu works tirelessly, competently, and professionally always keeping us informed of the transaction. They coordinate the various vendors to get the property ready for sale which takes a load off the owner(s).
Hands down, #1 in our book. Go Team Kiriu."
Ken & Laurie J., Honolulu (Seller) Sat, 12 Nov 2016 04:25:31 +1000
"Myron's strength is his ability to integrate and articulate our interests and needs. After we saw a few houses (with our kids), he could readily see what kind of house would work for us as a family. He was extremely patient and over the course of a year and a half helped us find our dream house."
Kenneth Kao (Buyer) Sat, 05 Nov 2016 07:11:14 +1000
"Myron is awesome! He knows just how much communication and service is necessary to be excellent! Too much contact or being too overbearing can be annoying, which Myron is not. I would definitely recommend him to friends AND relatives."

Dean Yokoyama, Honolulu (Buyer) Sun, 09 Oct 2016 07:06:18 +1000
"I met Myron Kiriu 30 years ago at KPMG and was immediately impressed with his intelligence and friendliness. Flash forward 20 years where I bump into Myron at a former colleague's funeral. I was struck by his compassion and respect for others. In 2015, my brother shared with me his positive experience about the purchase of his new detached single family home. I asked my brother about who his broker was and he said "Myron Kiriu". It seems like fate has connected Myron with our family. So naturally, when it was time to select a broker for a 1031 exchange, our family selected Myron and his team. Thanks to Myron's savvy negotiation skills, our family saved $350,000.
So whether you're looking for a home, a second home, or an investment property, we recommend Myron Kiriu. When it comes to business acumen, commitment, and respect, I'm as impressed now as I was 30 years ago."

"We entered a contract that was extremely time sensitive which included a sale of our existing home and closing on a new home within a tight 45 days. On the other side Myron negotiated a safe gate that allowed us a protections just in case the sale fell thru! I am truly amazed at the knowledge and hussle Myron's team provides. This is our third transaction with Myron, his team is truly the best you can ask for! Thank You Myron and your entire staff for closing the impossible dream home for my ohana."

"In business, there are those that do a good job because they work hard and for the most part enjoy their craft. Then there is that one person in a million that excels in what he does, is tireless in his pursuit of perfection, and finds joy in his work - because he has found his calling. Myron is that one person in a million.
My wife and I were constantly in awe of Myron's comprehensive knowledge of market and his amazing work ethic. But, what impressed us most was Myron's integrity and his honesty.
We always knew that Myron had our best interests at heart.
Both my wife and I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to work with Myron. We plan to recommend him to all of our friends and family."
Jay and Janice Fujimoto (Seller) Mon, 05 Sep 2016 09:05:52 +1000

Understanding evolved from good to excellent, as might be expected and hoped for.
The experience was pleasant throughout, and we got what we wanted in the end. What more could we have hoped for?
I can highly recommend Myron to anyone seeking a real estate agent in Hawaii."

"Myron and his team are truly top notch professionals. Throughout our entire experience with his firm - from our initial consultation through closing - my wife and I felt very well taken care of, and that Myron and team knew exactly what we were looking for and were constantly looking out for our best interests. Myron and team were always available when we needed them or had questions, found us a place in the exact area at the exact price we wanted, and guided us with apparent ease through escrow and closing. We highly recommend Myron."
Mike O'Keefe, Honolulu (Buyer) Sat, 04 Jun 2016 12:28:52 +1000
"Myron has been my broker handling a total of 5 transactions since 2011, including sales and purchases of single family homes, as well as a unit in a new condo development. Myron is extremely professional and knowledgeable. He goes above and beyond to exceed client expectations. I appreciate Myron's experience and keen eye particularly when it comes to the critical inspection phase. His excellent reputation and strong relationships with other brokers, contractors, developers and stakeholders in the community also sets Myron apart. He is supported by a stellar team to ensure a smooth process. Every single transaction, even a challenging contingency sale, went through without a hitch. Real estate is a huge investment - there is no one that I would trust more than Myron to ensure that my best interest is kept at the forefront that Myron."
Kari, Honolulu (Buyer) Thu, 26 May 2016 08:54:20 +1000
"To a first time home buyer, the process is thrilling and a little scary. From our very first meeting with them, I knew we were in good hands. Myron and his team explained everything step by step and made sure we understood the market. Myron is a professional negotiator who knows his real estate - he negotiated a HUGE credit for us on a single family home! Without his amazing persuasive skills, we wouldn't have gotten this property! He is very straightforward and honest when it comes to talking about the house, comps, and value.
Myron and his team made us feel 100% that they cared about us and respected our budget. They are professional yet so personable.
If I had to, I would for sure go through this whole thing again in a heartbeat. It was so easy and exciting to work with them! You will not find a broker better than Myron and a real estate company better than Advantage Realty, I can guarantee you that! We will be coming back to them for all our future transactions and recommending to all our family and friends!
Thank you Myron for everything you have done for us! We are eternally grateful!"
Grace Morita (Buyer) Thu, 26 May 2016 08:28:31 +1000
"This was the first time buying a house. Myron Kiriu's team made every effort to make sure my interests were represented throughout the entire process. He even made decisions that were not in HIS own best interest to make sure that I was happy. His highly-skilled team is comprised of the island's best talent in their respective fields. If I wasn't working with Myron directly, he has the most capable agents follow through with every single detail. They approached every inspection and every document review with a skillful and critical eye that would impress even the most seasoned or savvy home buyer. The employees at Better Homes and Gardens Advantage Realty make your desires their priority, and they go out of their way to protect your future investment as if it was their own. This realty office deserves the highest ratings. I am beyond satisfied with my experience, and I will surely use their services again."

"Myron Kiriu was really helpful especially in the purchase of our current house, in that he gave honest and informed information about real estate in particular the current practices in the field. He was also good at helping us decide on a house that is perfect for our situation given the logistics of work as well as the aesthetic looks and views of the house--the factors we had been looking for in a house.
Thank you, your realtor Davelyn Tengan was also a cheery and good person!"

And, his skill with inspections helped us secure repairs before closing. Myron's team (Sherrie, Michelle, Kim, Mary, Kerri and Wendy) have handled every detail of the transaction with ease. Myron is the best. I will only work with him and his team. Look forward to our next purchase with you Myron!"
G.S. Honolulu, Hawaii (Buyer) Fri, 01 Jan 2016 10:31:42 +1000
"Had the best vision of what we'd get if minor renovation done, other agents told me I'd make no money or renovation would be too pricey.
Personal touch of helping us move, get storage, bought us or gave us meals/snacks other people were shocked when I told them how much you guys do!
Myron knows his real estate! Made a lot from our sale, so happy :)"
Denise Lau, Honolulu (Seller) Fri, 01 Jan 2016 06:07:27 +1000
"Great team, especially Sherri, Kerri and Taryn. Myron himself often went overboard to help us out whenever any problems came up. He is a very hands on type of worker who always keeps ahead of things. He has developed some great teams to work for him and the ladies mentioned above were all on top of their responsibilities. We would definitely use him again if we ever move back to Hawaii. If someone wants their real estate deal handled efficiently and professionally we definitely recommend Myron and his team."
Dan and Hazel Hostetter - Tustin, CA. (Seller) Fri, 01 Jan 2016 05:48:42 +1000
"My wife and I were unsure of what to do when selling the investment property as we had difficulty responding to issues regarding the property due to time constraints and traffic congestion in the vicinity of the property. Myron's team approach and his high performance team helped us out tremendously in packaging the repairs/upgrades and completing them in much less time than anticipated and the property was sold very quickly. We then got into the situation of a 1031 exchange, which we did not consider before, as we found out the tax situation without an exchange would not be favorable. Myron's team walked us through the process in buying a replacement property. Buying a replacement property seemed like a cake walk in hindsight, as things turned out to be timely as well, and things fell in the correct order as we went through the process. We were both happy as a seller and as a buyer. We love the new place. Thank you Myron, Ambur and Team Kiriu for your excellent and outstanding service in both selling and buying property."

"Recommending Myron Kiriu was another great suggestion from my really good friend. He did not disappoint. He handled both selling our home and then buying a home for us. He is a very friendly and knowledgeable realtor. He'll captivate you with his stories as well as give you great information and advice on what he believes will be good for you and your family. Myron will make the process as stress-free as possible with the help of his very capable and friendly team/staff. You can feel comfortable asking them anything about your transaction and you will get your answer. They are very easy to contact by text or email. You can use many realtors but Myron will be your last. "Expect better with Myron?" Yes you will!!!"
Nanette Saito, Honolulu, Hawaii (Buyer) Fri, 11 Dec 2015 19:10:32 +1000
"Unbelievably responsive and accomodating to needs of customer. Mr. Kiriu's agents have a "can-do" attitude and have always said YES to the customer's request for property servicing."
Paul M. Ichinose Manoa Valley, Oahu (Seller) Fri, 04 Dec 2015 09:12:26 +1000
"We first met Myron at an open house. We did not buy that but we were very impressed with his knowledge and his personal and one on one approach to our housing needs.
Nine years later when we were interviewing real estate agents for the sale of our home we met with Myron. That interview made it clear to us why Myron was rated the top agent in the state. Even though we knew that we were not his only clients it certainly felt as if we were.
Over a period of sale the services and expertise that we received were excellent. Myron's team was always available to help us with any issue that we had related to the sale of our home. We feel strongly that we were able to work cooperatively and collaboratively with Myron's team to make the sale as smooth as possible."
Francisco Hernandez (Seller) Sat, 31 Oct 2015 05:22:01 +1000

Gisela Fox, Ewa Beach, Hawaii (Seller) Thu, 23 Jul 2015 14:02:51 +1000
"Being 2500 miles from the property I would be selling I was concern with finding a reliable and trustworthy realtor I could work with. I was fortunate an acquaintance in Hawaii had met someone from your firm and told me Myron was CPA and a top realtor in Hawaii, so I gave him a call. Being a CPA I immediately had a confidence in your integrity. When I called your firm I was able to talk with Myron and was impressed in the way he explained what he could and would do for me and answered my questions without trying to press me into choosing his firm.
After a couple of phone interviews with other agencies I knew Myron's firm was the right choice for me.
Myron made very good suggestions on what should be done to the property to be able to list it at top dollar, and his firm coordinated all the trades to get the property in the proper condition for a listing, which resulted in getting our asking price for the property. All this was done in a timely manner. He also was very good in answering my questions and concerns during the listing and escrow processes."
Belmore Thompson, Sucessor Trustee; SanDiego,Ca (Seller) Thu, 09 Jul 2015 10:01:36 +1000

John Crabbe Honolulu HI (Buyer) Tue, 12 May 2015 06:07:32 +1000
"Myron Kiriiu displayed, from the first meeting, a commitment to top-notch sales support, and a willingness to proceed expeditiously and professionally, while retaining personal involvement and oversight of the process. Team Kiriu included a number of capable, polite, and efficient members, and all were willing to come our to our home for document signing to accommodate my husband. We particularly appreciated the Team's project management approach to monitoring steps, and consistent communication regarding progress.
I would recommend Myron Kiriu based on his straightforward approach, efficient and personable Team, focus on the outcome, clarity of objectives and process, and flexibility to meet the seller's needs. Of course, this is built upon a knowledge of the local Manoa real estate market over many years, and strength in attention to detail, and local network."
