"Worked with Colin on a previous property and like last time, we went back and forth on negotiations. Colin was understanding of my concerns and requirements.
Colin goes gbove and beyond in following up on items that need attention and looks out in/for the best interests of clients. I was off island for the whole duration of the contract and even on vacation for a couple weeks. Everything went pretty smoothly. I mean, off island and on vacation - not many people can excute a project like this simultaneously."

"We met Colin Lee at the homebuyer's conference that was held at the Convention Center late in 2018. Our daughter met with Colin when she decided to look for a townhouse. He built a rapport with her and with the rest of the family, which led to our selection of Colin when we decided to sell a property we had inherited.
Colin provided clear, accurate information about the process; he provided full support to arrange and oversee services with third parties (termite fumigation, cleaning, staging, property survey); he made recommendations based on his experience, then gave us the space to make a decision.
He was responsive when we had questions and kept us informed when new information was available. He ensured the process was as painless as possible for us. He did an awesome job of handling our transaction!"

Cheryl Nekota, Rrecommended by Seller view agent's profile
"Cheryl Nekota was my agent that assisted me in purchasing the home that I sold, so I was already acquainted with her. When I considered selling my home, I immediately contacted Cheryl. There was no other broker/ agent that I would have chosen, as her work ethic is unmatched. Cheryl Nekota understood my intent and she executed them flawlessly. During the process, I had my personal doubts about whether my home would sell because the market was beginning to be saturated with similar style properties for sale. I had all of the confidence in Cheryl's ability to get it done. She reassured me that we would sell, and she delivered. I would highly recommend Cheryl Nekota to everyone that is in the market to buy or sell a home. She is pleasant to work with, very knowledgeable of the market, and has many years of experience.
Thank you Cheryl for hard work, passion for your job, and the wonderful experience in selling my home. Whenever I decide to purchase again, I will choose you to be my broker/ agent."

Joshua made our first home buying experience an educating, and enjoyable one.

"Jaymes and his team came into my life during a really terrible time—I had never owned a house or sold a house, and I was unfortunately thrust into doing it after my dad suddenly died. I was scattered and grieving and living 1,000 miles away, and Jaymes quite literally treated me like family, talking me through the smallest, dumbest aspects of repairing, cleaning, listing, and selling the house. He was available by phone or email any time of the day (I wasn’t able to fly to Hawaii even once) and was one of the most trustworthy people I’ve ever worked with in any capacity. He and his team did literally all of the work for me—they found repairmen, cleaning services, and landscapers, they worked with my attorneys, they literally cleaned out the entire four-bedroom house by themselves (without AC, mind you), and managed to find and save a box of old photos I didn’t even know existed. I really, truly wish I could convey just how much they saved me—they turned a horrible period of my life into the best possible experience. I’m so, so grateful I found Jaymes, and honestly want to buy a house just to have him sell it again."

Since that point hiring Colin was a no brained and he continuously exceeded my expectations and provided the highest level of service I could have ever hoped for!
Colin made the home selling process very easy and stress-free, especially for a first time home seller like myself. I would highly recommend Colin to all my friend and Family looking to buy or sell! You can be confident Colin will not only meet but exceed your needs throughout the entire process!"

Through the process of all the incidents that came up, Brad stuck with us and we helped each other go through the process of preventing more damage and reconstruction of the home.

"We met her accidentally at an open house - we had no realtor yet. Simply browsing homes at this point. She greeted us and immediately was so friendly and inviting. It stood out to us very well. It helped that she was also local and lived in the area we wanted to purchase. We have dealt with very pushy and rude agents before, Rolanda was different. This is why we picked her, and we couldn’t be happier!
Thank you and your team for treating us as a priority even though our purchase was very small.
She’s perfect the way she is! I hope I can have her again in a few years when we decide to upgrade!
Collena was amazing as well! Such great advice, I wouldn’t have thought about otherwise. Thank you so much for everything!"

"A wise man once said, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step”. In our case, try 4,957 miles.
You see, we had just recently moved last year from NYC to Honolulu with only a few suitcases containing our personal effects. We had no relatives nor any friends living on the island. It was just the two of us in an unfamiliar place.
As soon as we arrived in Honolulu, knowing that we couldn’t live out of a hotel forever, we needed to reach out to someone who knew the island well and can help us find a rental apartment as quickly as possible Through a recommendation from one of my wife’s coworkers (which in and of itself is another story for another time), that is how we stumbled upon Joshua.
When we first contacted Joshua, we did not realize that he does sales and that it would be another team that handled rentals. So we had thought he was going to transfer us to someone else. But to our surprise he wholeheartedly offered to personally help us without any hesitation. He could have easily turned us down and spend his time more profitably elsewhere, but we soon realized as we got to know him better that that’s just not him. If he can help you he will do so to the fullest. If I had to choose one of the many things that truly impressed us about Joshua, it would be this act of kindness and generosity.
Even during escrow, when we could not physically be available to meet with vendors and inspectors, Joshua always stepped up and offered to meet them on our behalf. I’ve lost track now of how many times he’s done that for us. And this is not to mention the times when he drove us to various appointments because I did not have a car available to me.
There are just no words in the English vocabulary that can adequately describe his genuineness. His true character is on display in everything he does.
You will not find a more dedicated realtor than Joshua."

"We want to take this opportunity to recommend Joshua Mun to be recognized for the 2019 Realtor Awards Program. We were relocating from PA and NY for employment. We had one week to find a place to live then close in 35 days. Without having a realtor upon arriving in Honolulu and not knowing the area we began by scouting out open houses. On Sunday, January 26 we hit the ground running by mapping out 10 open houses. While reviewing the houses we spoke with each realtor explaining our unique situation and asking for them to basically drop everything and assist us for the next few days. Several realtors said they would be able to make us their top priority due to our strict timeframe but it was Joshua Mun that actually did it. We weren't even at the next open house when we were already receiving texts and emails from Joshua with houses to check out within our criteria. He did this on his own, even without him knowing whether or not we were going to work with him. Joshua truly made such an impression on us in such a short time we knew he was the one. So we cancelled all other potential realtors and selected Joshua as our realtor. We began the next morning seeing house after house with Joshua. He made us feel like we were his only client. After numerous appointments, emails, texts we put several offers in on houses. But Joshua didn't stop there he continued showing us places just in case they didn't come through in our time frame. That being said 4 days later Joshua found us our home. We were in contract by Friday, January 29th, opened escrow and went back to PA/NY Saturday morning with the reassurance Joshua was going to continue to represent us as if we were family. He was professional, knowledgeable and friendly. His work ethics went above and beyond anything we ever expected and have seen in a long time. For the next 35 days he responded to all our inquiries, kept us informed and reminded us of each deadline. If we needed anything Joshua was there. He made the process seamless. In this day and age trust is a big thing especially living 5,000 miles away and within a several minutes Joshua won us over. He proved to be trustworthy and dependable. Even after closing he didn't stop. He's checked in on us to see if he could be of any further assistance. We feel we not only were represented by a professional realtor, we made a friend in the process. We would highly recommend Joshua Mun to anyone in need of a realtor and definitely feel he deserves to be recognized for the 2019 Realtor Award Program. In the 35 + days Joshua Mun has gone above and beyond our expectations at every juncture of this process. This profession needs more realtors like Joshua Mun."

Francis & Michelle Van Rafelghem, R and RArecommended by Seller view agent's profile
"Over the years the Van Rafelghems have handled over 50 transactions for me so that pretty much says it all. They are also quite busy with numerous clients so that also says something. I need professional full-time brokers who move property for a living, not someone hoping they can supplement their income with one or two sales a year. Hawaii is full of Part-Time "sales" associates who have no real skills in purchasing marketing property. Professional knowledge of real estate is very lacking with the majority of agents that have a license - which is really not indicative of skills in acquiring or disposing of real estate."
Glenn F. Woo New Jersey (Seller) Sat, 09 Feb 2019 04:05:26 +1000
"Honestly, I met Colin initially at a homebuyer's expo at the Hawaii Convention Center. There were a LOT of brokers there. Colin was the only one that stood out as someone I would be interested in working with to buy a house. He stood in sharp contrast to the other brokers at the expo who were extremely aggressive about trying to get prospective customers' business. Colin was unassuming, answered about 500 questions I had and left me feeling like he was both expert in his field and exceedingly competent. The fact that he didn't try to sell me on his business was a significantly influential factor in my decision to work with him to a buy a home.
In a word, Colin is awesome. It would be superfluous to try to describe him in more words when the one will do."

"Sean presented himself to me as a team. Knowing that he had the support of team members, specializing in different areas of the process, instead of putting the various responsibilities on the shoulders of a single individual was a huge factor in choosing Sean and the Better Homes and Gardens team.
I was an off island remote client, with alot of time consuming distractions going on in my life during this process (including unplanned international travel for a family emergency). But the sale was surprisingly painless in so many unexpected ways. I didn't need to take the time to expose myself to much of it - the whole process seemed to take care of itself, from my point of view.
They prepped the property quickly, while keeping me in the loop the entire time. They found and provided very reasonable quotes for all the necessary work from various vendors. The prepping process they suggested was much cheaper than I expected. We got a full price offer within a week of going on the market (at a price I didn't even expect to get), and we closed the sale 3 months after my first introductory phone call with Sean!
While Murphy's law seemed to keep ensuring everything else in my life was more difficult and more time consuming than anticipated, it was so nice have this sales process go so seamlessly and so much better than anticipated.
Thank you Sean, Melissa, and Kristy!"

This includes, but not limited to, future potential value of the home, my location relative to important points of interests, and fighting to negotiate the most favorable terms for a purchasing contract.

"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."

"Joshua was a pleasure to work with, and truly went above and beyond. While assisting us with an out-of-state sale on a condo that had nothing going for it besides the view, he was available at just about any time day or night and he was willing to roll up his sleeves and personally help with any necessary work to prepare the unit for sale. He was excellent with communication and keeping us updated, and he was patient with all of our questions and concerns.

"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."

"Dianne Bosworth was a spectacular agent to work with! She was fun and personable, while also extremely professional. She took the whole picture into account, from prepping the home for open house to finalizing paperwork for closing. Since this was our first sale, we were a little anxious, but Dianne put us at ease with her experience in the field. She made the whole process painless, and frequently contacted us to check up or let us know our next steps. Dianne also has extensive experience with escrow, which proved invaluable during closing.
I highly recommend working with Dianne on your real estate transaction! She knows the area well, and will help you achieve your goals in selling your home, and I'm sure she's great on the buyer's end as well."
Roxanne & Hogan, Kapolei (Seller) Sat, 27 Oct 2018 05:30:14 +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."

The Bolds, Oahu (Buyer) Wed, 10 Oct 2018 12:30:59 +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."

"The first time we saw a house we weren’t even planning to buy in the next year, and I was nervous about the whole process. But it turned out to be so much fun looking at houses with Daniel Lee, R. Daniel listened so well to what we were interested in. He wasn’t pushy, but seemed genuinely interested in finding us a home we would be happy in. After that first time, he forwarded listings from time to time to us. After a couple of months, we realized that we really should look at some of these houses Daniel had sent us. They looked like just what we were looking for. After two more viewings we found the house we wanted, but Daniel very patiently showed us a number more so that we felt sure.
Once we made an offer, Daniel Lee, R made sure the inspections and documents were quickly scheduled and taken care of. I felt confident that he didn’t miss a detail. We uncovered a number of issues that had to be taken care of and Daniel got them settled for us. Buying a house seemed like an insurmountable task before we started working with Daniel Lee, R, but the process turned out to be quite easy, thanks to Daniel’s organizational skills and attention to details! Daniel Lee, R is a great realtor to work with!"
