Hawaii Real Estate Testimonials

What our wonderful clients have to say about our agents and our company.

Zohra Abuzalaf, RA Zohra Abuzalaf, RA
Hawaii Kai Real Estate Office (Oahu)

"Zohra exceeded all of our expectations during our recent purchase. As residents of New Jersey, with an interest in obtaining a property in Waikiki, the first thing we noticed was Zohra's prompt and courteous responsiveness to our questions by phone or email. When my wife and I decided to travel to Hawaii to view properties, Zohra coordinated with us closely and effectively, making us feel relaxed and very much at home, and arranging a well paced viewing of relevant candidate properties.

We ended up purchasing a property, and are very happy with the purchase. Zohra met and in fact exceeded what we would expect of an excellent real estate agent, providing professional and exceptional service, thorough follow up to all of our questions at every stage of the process, and ensured fair dealings. We don't hesitate to provide a strong and enthusiastic recommendation regarding Zohra to anyone considering a real estate transaction in Hawaii."

Larry Barton, RS Larry Barton, RS
Princeville Real Estate Office (Kauai)

"I based my decision to take Larry on as my realtor on an experience that took place two years before I even considered putting our house on the market. It was back in 2009, when I had met Larry for the first time, at a random open house. I had asked him a few questions about county assessments on home values. Larry's open, down-to-earth style, his knowledge of the real estate market, and his generosity with his time, won me over. Two years later, when it came time for me to sell, I always remembered Larry's winning personality. That's what made my decision to hire Larry an easy one.   

Working with Larry over the past nine months to sell our home (which closed today!) never failed to live up to that first impression. From the afternoon we signed our contract with him, he has offered invaluable guidance clearly earned through years of experience. For the most part, I trusted his guidance, but on those occasions when our opinions differed, Larry was always open to either shifting perspective or elucidating points I may have not had at first understood. As a result, every step of this journey has been surefooted. I also very much appreciated his consistently clear communication with me - that's so important with large-scale transactions!! 

Selling a home is always a challenge. We are so grateful to Larry for making it a pleasure as well."

Kelly Ann Cote, RA Kelly Ann Cote, RA
Waikele Real Estate Office (Oahu)

"Kelly provided exceptional service by completely explaining the sale/short sale process, and keeping me apprised of each new step/development along the way. When I expressed anger and frustration at a couple of points in the 4-month process, she kindly and calmly talked to me and explained what I obviously did not understand. Her due diligence, persistence, and professionalism were impressive. I would definitely do business with her again."

Virginia “Gini” R. Dixon, RA Virginia “Gini” R. Dixon, RA

Eti Fuchs, RA Eti Fuchs, RA
Waikiki Real Estate Office (Oahu)

"We would like to nominate our realtor, Eti Fuchs, of Century 21 All Islands, as one of the “Top Ten Realtors”. This extraordinary individual is a talented, dedicated, professional who works as hard for her $300K clients as she does for the million-dollar babies, and goes above and beyond while doing so. We commend her for being the most outstanding realtor we’ve ever had and would like to see her recognized as such among her peers."

Vineeta Jetley, Realtor Vineeta Jetley, Realtor
Waikele Real Estate Office (Oahu)

"Vineeta is an exceptional Realtor. The service provided far surpassed any we had received previously from other Realtors. Her dedication to ensuring a successful sale was evident in her willingness to work unusual and extra hours. Her knowledge of the overall sales process was really put to the test in regards to permits, termites, early occupancy, among others.

We were so pleased, we used Vineeta [again] to list our next property and have told everyone we know. In a nutshell, how would I describe Vineeta? Fantastic, professional, accomplished, knowledgeable, superb, friendly, accommodating, outstanding, honest, sincere, prompt, incredible, excellence in action!"

LeiAloha “Lei” S. Kawaguchi, RA LeiAloha “Lei” S. Kawaguchi, RA
Waikele Real Estate Office (Oahu)

"Lei made the sale of our home almost effortless. If you consider the amount of questions, concerns, problems that can arise from living on one island and selling a house on another island, this lady gave us phenomenal service. Her knowledge of pricing, and being able to gage the needs and desires of my wife and I through only the phone and e-mail, are a testament to her skill and experience as a Realtor. Though we received several bids of varying amounts, I believe she gave us the best pool of prospective buyers to choose from and guided us in the right direction to choose the best buyer to close the deal in the time frame we desired.

She conducted herself professionally at all times and always provided an answer to our questions whether on the spot or getting back to us in a timely manner. Without fail, she made herself available by phone or e-mail at all hours on any day of the week. I know she probably had other clients, it felt as if we had our own personal Realtor at our beck and call, and I appreciate that kind of service in this day and age when service almost nonexistent."

Sharon Keating, RB Sharon Keating, RB
Waikele Real Estate Office (Oahu)

"Ms. Keating and I agreed on a listing price [for my townhouse]. She was able to negotiate the price and sell the property within 2 weeks and closed in 35 days to meet my requirement for a quick sale.

Ms. Keating used a professional photographer and used a virtual tour she prepared to ensure an excellent presentation on the MLS. This was key to getting potential buyers to view my place and sell my townhouse. If I purchase another property in Hawaii, I will select Ms. Keating as my Realtor."

Darryl Macha, RB Darryl Macha, RB
Waikele Real Estate Office (Oahu)
808- 352-6458

"Darryl Macha exemplifies the true characteristics of the REALTORS Code of Ethics. His professionalism in the field surpassed our expectations - given our past experience with other realtors that have been in the “business” for a while. It was just that for those realtors - business. With Darryl Macha, it is the personal and professional “relationship” that exuded throughout the lengthy short-sale process. He treated us like family.

Darryl’s ability and skills-set to communicate and listen to his client’s concerns and needs, made the transaction process easier to deal with during a season in our lives that challenged us. In today’s real estate business, trust and experience are key factors when it comes to choosing a realtor. It is not only Darryl’s trust and experience that captured our attention; it is his integrity, knowledge, and exceptional customer service that will continue to keep us as his clients for future transactions to come.

Darryl Macha is one realtor that we are confident to refer to our family, friends, and associates. He is a realtor that we proudly endorse to anyone who is looking for a realtor who is proven in the business and knows service before self. Although our transaction closed a month ago, Darryl continues to take time out of his busy schedule to inquire of our lives and offers us his assistance should we need any help - be it real estate related or not."

Milt Piver, RA Milt Piver, RA
Waikele Real Estate Office (Oahu)

"When it came time to sell our home in Hawaii, we weren’t always able to [be] present, but Milt kept us so instantly apprised of all details, that we felt as though we’re there. Milt took care of a lot of the work and details to get the house ready for an Open House, for the sale, for the inspection and repairs, and for the closing. Milt is a person that we know we can trust and rely on."

Debrasue Stutts, RS Debrasue Stutts, RS
Waikoloa Real Estate Office (Big Island)

"Debrasue Stutts is my nominee for best, most professional real estate person that anyone would want to work for them! Here's why. Not only is she highly professional, but she knows all of the ins and outs of real estate to the max, and she works for you, and you alone, in her representations. Over multiple transactions, I can personally attest to her career skill and knowledge. Debrasue is a "go to" kind of person. If you want it done, and done right, she's your best choice by far. Honest, frank, personable and knowledgeable is what I experienced. And you will, too! When it comes to buying or selling real estate, Debrasue should be your first and only selection as your agent. That's my experience and I highly recommend her to you."

--AJ Mc Danold 

Audrey Ventimiglia, RS Audrey Ventimiglia, RS
Wailea Real Estate Office (Maui)

"Audrey came highly recommended (by her broker who was a friend of a friend). My husband and I greatly appreciate the work Audrey has done with us, she has represented us very well and made our home-buying experience a breeze! She has since represented us with our four investment property (condos) purchases as well. She is hard-working, has great expertise and has represented us with great integrity. We most definitely recommend her."
