Choosing a Maui realtor is a big decision. Some qualities are universally helpful, like clear communication skills, a proactive attitude, and high responsiveness. On the other hand, you might need to dig deeper for some other important factors. For example, if your real estate interest is focused strongly on a particular area, it can be very helpful to choose a realtor who specializes in that area. Likewise, if your interest is broad, you might want to look for a realtor who is less of a specialist in any particular area, and more of a generalist with strong investigative motivation.
Now that we've given those tips, let's consider track records. In the age of online feedback/reviews, it's easier than ever to find out how satisfied others have been with a given realtor or company. There's nothing like a long list of satisfied and happy clients to reassure you that you're likely to experience the same. Interested in what they're saying about us? Here are a couple of testimonials.
"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 traveled 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."
"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."
