Joshua Munrecommended by Seller view agent's profile
"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. Joshua is truly one who means it when he says he'll help in any way possible, and we are very pleased with his work."

"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."

"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."

Overall a great agent who was knowledgeable, helpful and paid attention to detail.
He helped us with everything from selecting a home, to mortgage, to closing. He even took time to help us find contractors for renovations.

"Steve was everything that we could have asked for in a broker. He was extremely detail oriented and dealt with every aspect of the purchase with great care and attention. He was extremely accessible and able to accommodate our very limited time schedule for showings and all else. We would highly recommend him to anyone and will use him again in any real estate transactions in Oahu."
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!"

"Myrons full service team approach was critical to our selection process

"We just closed the purchase of our first single family home and we couldn’t have done it without Colin. After interviewing multiple agents Colin was the clear choice for us in no small part due to his organization, tenacious attitude and professional conduct. What struck us immediately while interviewing Colin was his confidence that if we were in a multiple offer situation, he felt that he could give us the best chance of having our offer chosen. When we did finally make an offer on a home, he was absolutely right since out of multiple offers, some of which were objectively more attractive than our own, with his incredible effort our offer was the one accepted.
However, before we even got to the point of making an offer, Colin was essential to our search for a home. Whenever we were interested in seeing a home, Colin was quick to respond and readily available to show us the home. Of even greater value was his ability to spot issues that would have made a purchase an absolute disaster. While looking at a home that we were particularly enamored with, Colin noticed an area on the exterior of the home that didn’t have a clear way to drain rainwater. Colin then found hidden away in a closet, the interior wall that corresponded with the potential problem area. The wall was actively seeping through with moisture. Disaster averted.
Colin was incredibly helpful in guiding us and assisting us with the escrow process after our offer was accepted and we were completely comfortable knowing that he was handling all of the small details necessary to move forward. One situation that arose right before we closed really exemplified the extra effort that defines Colin’s conduct. We were days away from closing when hurricane Lane was set to hit Oahu. There was a minor leak from a skylight in the home that was acceptable during normal showers but with the coming hurricane we were worried that torrential rain could cause untold damage to the home and scuttle the sale. The seller wasn’t willing to do anything but Colin was quick to gain permission to protect the home from being damaged before the close of the sale. Colin showed up at the house with a ladder and caulk to stop the leak. Fortunately, and I’m sure due to Colin’s intervention, the home was undamaged and we were able to close the purchase with the home in the same condition as when we made our offer. Colin’s skill, tenacity and willingness to go above and beyond for his clients made our dream of home ownership a reality and we are forever grateful to have met and trusted Colin as our realtor."
Micah Kosasa and Kim Mizo (Buyer) Thu, 06 Sep 2018 05:53:52 +1000
"Colin did an amazing job arranging the marketing of our home. He gave me good advice regarding how to clean and rearrange our home so it would sell quickly. I’m convinced that we would not have been able to sell as quickly or for as much without all his expert advice.
I know Colin had other clients he was handling, but it certainly never felt like it. He was always a phone call or text away, willing to handle any of my questions. He never made me feel like I had to demand his attention, and always checked in with me on the progress of our sale. My husband works in town and I don’t drive, so I’m home alone with our two year-old most days. Colin and his staff were always so helpful and accommodating when it came to appointments and showings. If we had a meeting to attend they always offered to pick me up. During private showings they offered to come by ahead of time and watch my kid for me while I cleared the house and got things ready. They totally went above and beyond and made my experience as stress-free as possible.
Chelsea assisted me when Colin wasn’t available. It was so nice to know someone would be there for me, and Chelsea felt like family by the time we were through. She was so helpful in so many ways, from entertaining my toddler while I rounded up all our animals for open houses to showings up for inspections and treatments for our home so I wouldn’t have to be there. I felt safe leaving my home in her hands.
I’m so grateful for Colin’s expertise and professionalism. He made me feel lessons panicked about our impending move and was so patient with us from the moment we called him to assess our house for sale to the moment we signed for the purchase of our new house."

"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!"

"Rolanda was exceptional in helping us find and purchase the house of our dreams. She knew what we were looking for, the criteria that we had set for our future home and was always patient yet dependable in helping us review our options. She always kept us informed and enthusiastically accompanied us to many showings that came close to our needs for almost a year! We never felt pushed or pressured and she always was there to help us find out more and to represent our interests.
With perseverance, when the perfect house finally did come to market she was able to mobilize her team with the utmost efficiency and despite fierce competition, was critical in effectively helping us purchase the house. She was thorough, trustworthy, and professional through a complex closing process. She was always approachable, timely in her communications, knowledgeable, helpful and ultimately the key factor in our ability to secure the once in a lifetime opportunity to buy our new home!
We are so thankful for Rolanda and her team for being there, as in retrospect we don’t know how we would have managed the buying process without her.
We started with Rolanda as our agent and we finished with Rolanda as our friend!"

The 360 online tour was exceptionally impressive and well put together to capture the features of the property.
Being from out of state. It was incredible to have someone we could trust to take care of all the business locally. Mathew is honest and competent in all areas of the business.
Mathew's negotiation skills cannot be beat. He exceeded our expectations on our property and generated the top recorded sale price for our building. We received top dollar for our listing within just a short period of time.
Amazing service all around. We are very pleased and will definitely highly recommend Mathew to our friends and family.

"Cheryl goes above and beyond the usual duties and expectation of a real estate agent. She spends a lot of her time and money taking care of staging and any issues that arise. She has many contacts such as contractors, flooring, paint, plumbing, etc, that are available which is a huge advantage when trying to time the listing and sale of real estate. Every contact Cheryl has referred has been a top notch provider.
Our family trusts her to protect our interests and do the best to get the best results for us, which is why we’ve called on her services 4 times in the last 12 years! Cheryl is patient and she listens. She takes the time to understand the wants and needs of your situation and doesn’t push just to make a sale. She helps find you a home that you will be happy to live in. She’s helped sell two of our properties and knows her market well. She takes the time to talk to vendors, contractors, agents, and potential buyers to see if what we’re selling is a right fit.
Cheryl is organized. She has a lot of knowledge of the entire process from prepping and staging, to pricing, to escrow and closing. I would recommend Cheryl one hundred times over!"

"Larry is professional and efficient. I was extremely satisfied at the fact that even though my husband is still living in New York and the fact that I just moved here. He had all the answers on finding the home that we wanted to taking care of solutions for paying out of state in such a short time frame. He worked 24/7 for us. The most thing that I liked about his service is his impeccable knowledge and those little ques that he will remember for you that you were looking for in your dream house. I am confident he will help others to their fullest satisfaction as he has helped me. Thanks Larry I am 100 percent satisfied with my new condo.
Larry's performance is phenomenal. All of his responses are timely. He makes sure you understand all the steps as you go along. He will be one step ahead of the process and let's you know what needs to be done. He will leave margins of time so you don't lose out in case you need a little more time and still be able to close at the closing time.
Honestly in the beginning I had a chance to work with another realtor. Larry's willingness and bright knowledge in this line of business gave me the confidence to stay with Larry all the way andI am glad I did. I am confident Larry will become a very busy realtor in the near future."

"My wife and I could not be more pleased with the outstanding service Yul Song provided us during our six-month home search and purchase process.
Although Yul excels in many characteristics, we were especially impressed with her friendliness and patience, along with her willingness and initiative to go out of her way in helping us with the many details of our house search and purchase.
My wife and I are first-time home buyers, so we were not prepared for all the details involved, but Yul set us at ease by very patiently explaining details to us and by guiding us step by step up through the date of recording.
If we ever buy a home on Oahu again, Yul Song would definitely be the first agent we would consider, and we would highly recommend her to any of our friends looking for a home on the Island.
Thank you, Yul, for making our first home purchase such a pleasant experience. You truly have been a Godsend to our family and we are grateful for you!"

"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!!"

He was always on time in our meetings. We can trust him with information about us and go to him at anytime to talk about any issues we were concerned about. He knew how to brainstorm solutions and make us comfortable in any situation.
Jospeh is the best at what he does. I’ve met real estate agents before and he’s by far the best and hard working we have worked with."

"Daniel was friendly, easy to talk to, and very knowledgeable about what we need. It was also a factor for us to choose this broker because he made it very easy to understand and answered all of our questions any time of day.
Daniel made it comfortable for us with this process because he talk to us about times and schedules which would make it easier for us to make it to. Kept us informed with all the updates we need to know and reminders of up going items.
Was easygoing, very approachable when it came to question and concerns we had.
Larry Chun was also helping Daniel with our home buying he was just like him very easy to get to know, understand and listened to what we needed and came though for us.
Very happy about the results because they were great to work with and out going in everything we needed. They went above and beyond our expectations because we really enjoyed working with them cause they made it easy and understanding for us."

"Wendy Akai, RA is simply the best. She went above and beyond helping me sell my condo. She not only sold above the asking price, but we closed in a record nine days thanks to Wendy’s diligence and capable handling of the sale. Wendy took care of everything because I was working remotely in Alaska. Her knowledge of the local market, her pleasant demeanor, and her perspicaciousness altogether make her a great business ally. I could not have chosen a better agent. Thank you, Wendy Akai."

"We first met Krisztina a couple of years ago when we were purchasing our condo in Waikiki. She was representing the sellers and we had a different agent who was representing us at the time. Years later when we decided to sell our place we immediately thought of Krisztina and called her up and asked her to take our listing. We are very happy with our decision as our place sold for more than any of comparable listing in the building by about $20,000! We live on the East Coast but with her help the process was 100% stress free. We will purchase in Hawaii again some day and we will definitely use Krisztina again."

"As a first time homebuyer and someone who had a bad experience with another broker, Colin was very approachable, knowledgeable, and explained the home buying process well. He touched all the bases and took care of any concerns, hesitations, and questions top to bottom. On top of that he was always 10 steps ahead so I never had to worry about anything throughout my experience.
I really liked that he had almost 10 years experience as a CPA. It was nice to be able to ask him real estate questions as well as have back to back opinions on finance questions from both him and my mortgage broker. Most real estate agents do not have this professional background to give educated answers when it comes to numbers.
It felt like he was always waiting by his phone for any questions I had as he was very timely and responsive with every interaction. I recommend Colin with my highest regards! Thank you for the great first time home buyer experience!"

"When I met Brett for the first time, I felt that he was genuinely interested in helping our family. He did not fit my idea of the typical realtor; for Brett it wasn’t just about making a sale. He spent a lot of time finding out about us and our visions for the sale of our family home.
Brett helped in all aspects of getting the house ready to sell: both Kandace and he got packing supplies; Brett contacted places to take the items the family didn’t want; Brett contacted people for repairs and cleaning; Better Homes stages the home and took drone video and photos; Kristy took us through the closing and escrow part.
I was able to complete the house sale from the Mainland with all of their help. I heartily recommend Brett and BHGRE."

She was so sweet, understanding, patient as we dealt with changes last min due to a military move, she’s knowledgeable and kind. When looking over offers on our home, because there were many thanks to her excellent staging resources and successful open house campaign, she gave us all the info and input but not leading us any way or another. I HIGHLY HIGHLY would recommend her to anyone"

"Colin Lee was excellent, well informed, and comforting in selling our home. His wife Deb and sister Chelsea were also very helpful and worked extremely well as a team! He personally went out of his way to meet with us for over 2 hours while we asked a multitude of questions even though he was not under contract, which proved he cared about us as people not just clients. He gave great advice about how to maximize the value of our home as well as a great understanding of the demographics in our area. He helped us understand the process, potential roadblocks, and was timely with documents. felt well prepared and transitioned as smoothly through all the gears till closing. I would recommend Colin Lee to anyone: family, friends, or strangers, who are looking to sell or purchase a home and would like to work with the ultimate professional."

"Our family first met Colin during an open house showing that we had only a few minutes to casually breeze through. Usually I feel pressured around salespeople in general but I didn't get that at all with Colin and it made selecting him as our realtor that much easier. From the start, he was awesome to work with in purchasing our first family home, making the entire process less scary than I had anticipated because he took the time to address my concerns or explain things I didn't understand. Communication was always prompt and he was always accessible. We felt very comfortable with him as he was very easy to talk to and it had the feel that he was more like a friend that's helping get you what you want than strictly a business partner. I'd definitely recommend Colin Lee and intend to work with him again in the future."

Even when there were the normal hiccups in the process she seemed to easily smooth them out collena. Her professionalism and knowledge of the area was a great testament to y'alls company. Not to forget Collena the other agent that assisted in the process she deserves a lot of credit too. They both made us feel like family and were so caring!!

Julie understood what I wanted in my first home and showed me listings that met my criteria, were within my budget, and either within or very close to the target area that I wanted to live in. She is very detailed oriented and ensured that I was informed thoroughly while approaching critical milestones during the home buying process. In summary, she is a real estate professional of the highest caliber and I would not hesitate to recommend her services to my family, friends, and work colleagues. If I were to purchase another residential property in the future, I would want her to represent me again."

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.

"Colin Lee has a track record of being a hard working realtor. He is a nice and friendly man. He is very knowledgeable about the Honolulu real estate market.
As a first time home buyer I did not know much about the real estate market or the process of buying an apartment. Colin Lee was always easy to contact and he was always available to answer my many questions I had for him quickly. He always was available to meet me to see apartments that I was interested in. He never pressured me to put an offer on any of the apartments we went to see.
Colin Lee worked very hard for me to negotiate the price of my apartment while he was on vacation in Canada. Even though he was on vacation he was willing to talk to the seller's agent and to me to help me get this apartment. Colin's associate Chelsea Lee was available to meet me to show me the apartment on short notice while Colin was on vacation. I am certain that I would have not gotten my apartment without Colin working on his vacation and his great staff supporting him while he was away.
Colin Lee also met me and called me at my convenience to review and discuss all of the paper work to make sure I understood all of the terms and statements on the contracts.
I would definitely hire Colin Lee in the future and I will recommend him to my family and friends. Everyone is in good hands with Colin Lee working for you!"

From helping us identify our needs and wants, to exploring various locations at differing price points for reference, to advocating for us during the negotiations and document reviews (while explaining in plain English what everything meant), Brett was the difference maker for in helping us move to our forever home!
He was ably assisted by Kandace Izumi; so kudos go to Brett for the positive outcome and a shout out goes to Kandace also!

Francis & Michelle Van Rafelghem, R and RArecommended by Buyer view agent's profile
"We had been searching for a single-family home in Honolulu for a number of years. It's a daunting task with the Honolulu Real Estate market being so hot, and us living remotely in New Jersey. We had limited our search for homes to Mariner's Ridge and Waianae Nui Ridge, and we noticed this home come on the market, while vacationing in Hawaii, in January. We called Michelle Van Rafelghem, and she immediately sensed our sincere interest in the property. She was kind enough to invite us to the Broker's Open House the next day. Other agents would have delayed our viewing till the Public Open House the following Sunday. We arrived and fell in love with the home.. Michele engaged Francis Van Rafelghem to assist, and together they answered all our questions, that initial day and at follow-up sessions. It was a little disheartening that several structural and pest issues were uncovered during the inspection period. We respected how they listened to our concerns, and helped us work through them all to our satisfaction. We never felt pressure to move forward with the deal.. Their approach was to share the facts with us (good or bad), offer assistance as needed, and were very supportive in our decision making. We have engaged realtors throughout our lives, but the service offered by Michele and Francis far exceeded our expectations. They were very knowledgeable of the area, living just down the road from the home. They educated us on the process in buying a home in Hawaii. They handled the entire transaction with courtesy and professionalism and we would highly recommend them to others
Francis Van Rafelghem always accommodated our schedule and attended every inspection we arranged.. I had to return to New Jersey in the middle of the transaction, so I relied on Francis to transmit photos, and conduct Skype sessions with me, so I could get a better sense of what was uncovered during the inspections, and to reveal how repairs were carried out.. The poor guy was even up on the roof taking photos for me.
We felt so good closing on this home, and they had a lot to do with the positive experience"

"As a frequently relocating military family, we were happy to be finally "retiring" and thrilled it would be in Hawaii. We had purchased four and sold three homes over the past 25 years and have experience working with several realtors, both good and bad, from three different states. After 5 years of living in military housing on Hickam AFB, going to well over a hundred open houses all over Oahu on our own, and frankly being underwhelmed by many of the realtors we saw at them, we realized we needed to research and locate an expert who we could trust to guide us in this fast moving market. The expert we chose was Brett Aka and he delivered. After listening to our specific requirements and more importantly hearing what we were communicating, Brett not only found us a perfect fit within a month, he expertly negotiated a great price and helped us close early. We have been in our new home for approximately four months and we are still in awe at how smooth Brett made the purchasing process and how perfectly he understood what we were looking for in a home. We whole-heartedly recommend Brett Aka to our friends, family, and to anyone who is looking for a realtor who absolutely understands the Oahu real estate market, balances a warm professionalism with an astute business acumen, and above all else is respectful to you and your family as you are deciding where you will call home."

"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."

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.

"Who could ask for more. Cheryl Nekota, R, delivered service above and beyond the call of her duties. Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Advantage Realty of Honolulu should be very proud of Cheryl.
Cheryl Nekota fully understood what had to be completed to the property prior to advertising it on the market so she made recommendations to increase the value of the property and furnished the approximate cost for each repair or replacement, along with providing an expert to do the jobs at minimal costs, if need be.
Even while I was on the mainland for a week, Cheryl Nekota kept in contact through email and forwarded documents that had to be reviewed and signed through Docu-Sign. I even discussed certain items by telephone, where she took the time to completely explain them.

Krisztina Kollo, Rarecommended by Buyer view agent's profile
"Krisztina was a great realtor! I was referred by half a dozen coworkers/friends and was not disappointed. She made the seemingly complex home buying experience go smoothly. Her attention to detail and knowledge base made me know I had a good realtor who was doing her best to get me a good deal on a place I wanted. With a busy work schedule, she would keep me informed of any inspections, and easily distinguished between things that were advisory in nature or when she needed my input to go forward with a process. She was a good sounding board when we looked at places, and I felt comfortable trusting her opinion of where she thought the asking price was with regards to the actual worth. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone, and plan on using her to sell or buy in the future."
