Lisa and Mark recently handled the sale of our long-time condo in Kihei and helped us acquire our new residence in Wailea. Lisa has a patient personality coupled with an eye for detail. Lisa is persistent in her follow through to make sure all the parties (including us) do what they are supposed to do to make the transaction happen on time. We found that we could rely on Lisa to handle the deadlines and solve the little problems that always seem to come up.
The Kihei condo was sold quickly for over the asking price. Lisa holds open houses and provides extensive feedback. Lisa did not "sell" us the home in Wailea - she helped us find our way to the right property that fit our needs and wishes. We are grateful to Lisa and Mark for their efforts.
From our initial conversations to the date I got the keys to my condo, Lisa made the entire home-buying experience as stress-free as possible. She is an excellent communicator and I felt that I was heard and cared for throughout the process. I would highly recommend anyone to work with her for any home buying or selling opportunities.
I enjoyed working with Lisa. She kept me up to date regarding all of her showings, encouraged me to be patient when I was anxious, reminded me about certain things that needed to be done, and even watered the plants and checked the mailbox. She also worked together with the escrow officer to make sure all the t's were crossed and the i's were dotted.
Good job Lisa!
Thank you so much for finding us a beautiful home on Maui. You made the entire process easy and enjoyable for us. Given that we did not personally see the property before acquiring it, we were pleasantly surprised upon our arrival. It exceeded our expectations! Your extra care and diligence to make sure that we bought the right property was greatly appreciated.
We have been involved in a lot of real estate transactions and we can honestly say that our experience with you has been the best.
Best wishes and thanks again!
You have been very professional , faithful and supportive in our situation and it is an honor to know you and work with you. Finally, we are able to move to Hawaiii!
Lisa Oyama of Coldwell Banker did a fantastic job of helping us get our long dreamed of home in on Maui. She worked very hard to find everything on the market that was available within our target zone - location, price and most important features. Even better she helped us get back on track when we got distracted by something that didn't fit our criteria. She made sure we saw a wide range of available properties which really helped confirm what mattered to us. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Lisa to anyone and would not think of calling any one else when we are ready to move up.
My wife and I are very happy with the service that Lisa and Mark have given us. We purchased our condo site unseen, mostly with pictures and info that was sent. When we arrived to our condo for the first time, it was exactly as we had expected.Lisa was great to deal with and very helpful. Most unexpected was the dinner and coffee Lisa left for us on arrival. Very thoughtful.
We have passed along Lisa and Mark's contact info a few times, with friends looking to purchase in Maui.
We would not hesitate to use Lisa and Mark’s realty services again and recommend them to others.
We began our property search online a year before we enlisted Lisa's expertise. We visited many real estate sites but found her & Mark's site was the most informative & user friendly.
We travelled to the island twice to see homes with Lisa and the days were jam-packed. We looked on both the westside & Wailea, looking at many beautiful custom homes. She was always accommodating with her time whether by email, phone or on island with her.
After a few disappointing false starts and Lisa reassuring us that we would find a home, we did indeed find the perfect place.
Lisa is very responsible, extremely intuitive, she's professional but personable. We would definitely refer Lisa to anyone in search of their own piece of paradise.
We are pleased and delighted to share our experiences with Lisa and Mark. They successfully helped us sell two family properties in Kihei over the last 7 years.
We worked primarily with Lisa, but we definitely benefited from Mark's involvement too. Working with them is a unique experience, because you have two professionals to rely on.
The qualities Lisa and Mark have that we admired the most:1) articulate communications 2) immediate response 3) integrity 4) creative in problem solving (there are always problems with Escrow) 5) sincerity 6) knowledge of markets, other agents, and real estate craftsmen.
Best of all, they were fun to work with.
Lisa's years of experience in the Maui Meadows area was of extreme importance in the successful sale of my mother-in-law's home. She guided us through the entire process with professionalism, sincerity, and a welcome dose of humor for the challenging days.
We were so fortunate to have had her as an agent and would most definitely recommend her to our friends.
I have been working with Mark and Lisa for almost 4 years now, including the purchase of a home in February 2010 and subsequent viewings of other properties that I am considering. Both Mark and Lisa are very professional, and are very knowledgeable about the Maui real estate market. I have found them to be very responsive to my requests and a delight to work with. I highly recommend them to others.
If you had 6 stars I would use them to recommend Lisa Oyama. We worked together to review condos from San Francisco and through each trip on island. She was excellent at showing me all the possibilities, helping me narrow down where and what would fit me best. If we saw a listing, I had the info and the input from her site visit immediately. Her knowledge of the properties was excellent, her instincts for my likes and needs, perfect. She helped me through three offers, constantly providing me with info to help me make good decisions, and eventually we closed on a short sale no less, with me getting one of the best prices in the complex. If I ever decide to sell there is only one person I would call.
Lisa Oyama was an amazing agent! She was very knowledgeable about the market and listened to our needs very closely to find us a home that was perfect for us. We enjoyed working with her so much we make it a point to visit with her every time we go to Maui!
I found Lisa Oyama online when I first started thinking about retiring to Maui. We worked together for over a month via email before I made my trip out to look with 'boots on the ground'. She showed me about a dozen properties in a day and a half, one of which suited perfectly. We made an offer which was accepted within hours. I was under contract within 48 hours of my arrival on Maui! She listens so very well and as a result I was only shown properties that were likely to be of interest. An exceptional agent. A year later I used her to purchase a vacation rental investment condo with similar marvelous results. Mahalo Lisa!
Recently, I sold my home through Coldwell Banker Island Properties. The showing of the house, final walk through, and closing were done professionally and in a timely manner. I was always updated on whatever was going on with the sale of the house. I am thoroughly satisfied with how Coldwell Banker Island Properties handled the sale of my home.
We met Lisa Oyama in 2005 and she helped us find investment property to build on. As years went by we decided not to build and Lisa then guided us through over 100 properties by sending us previews by Internet to eliminate properties that didn't fit our criteria. Then when we came on island she spent a week taking us to qualified properties gradually narrowing down to the final decision, a property she saved for last. The best part is that we have remained personal friends and will doubtless do more business in the future.
We met Lisa Oyama when we went to look at the house that we ended up purchasing. The whole transaction went smoothly from start to finish, and it was a pleasure working with her. Everyone involved was treated with respect and professionalism and she was always quick to respond to our concerns and questions. She comes highly recommended.
In one word FANTASTIC. We consider ourselves very lucky to have had the good fortune to have met Lisa Oyama and Mark Harbison. My wife and I had been researching properties in Hawaii for a number of years and had visited Oahu a year prior, but had not found any suitable properties. The following year we visited Maui and contacted Lisa and Mark. It was a whirlwind week visiting property after property. We were at once impressed with their professionalism, honesty, trust and willingness to walk (literally at times) that extra mile. Long story short: by the end of the week, we had selected a few properties that we were impressed with and put in offers, the process of which, thanks to Mark’s help, guidance and knowledge was a breeze. After our offer was excepted Lisa and Mark continued to be there to answer all our questions and resolve any issues that arose. Keiko and I now consider Lisa and Mark to be our friends and on each trip to Maui always make sure to call and visit with them. We highly recommend Coldwell Banker Island Properties and in particular Lisa and Mark to any one that is looking for a well informed team to guide through the quagmire that can be property acquisition.
We worked with Lisa Oyama and Mark Harbison, agents with Coldwell Banker Island Properties, when we bought our place in Maui and couldn't be happier with their service. They worked together to ensure both our brains and hearts were satisfied with our property.
Our search for just the right place included many twists and turns, but we ended up very pleased with our purchase. Having viewed many properties with us, Lisa knew exactly what we were looking for. In fact, Lisa found a property that she knew we'd love, but we were unable to get to the island to see it. Because we trusted her expertise and knowledge, as well as the photos she took, we bought it sight-unseen, something I'd never thought I'd do in my lifetime.
We've happily recommended Lisa and Mark to our friends and continue to do so.
