"Real-estate is more than purchasing a home,
it's about helping clients find a lifestyle that fits them..."
“My wife and I moved to HI from the mainland and Maria helped us figure out what part of the island would be the best fit for us based on what was important to us in a community, school, and home. On several occasions, she had to make multiple trips to properties to take extra pictures or videos as we were not on the island throughout our whole search for a home. She did a great job negotiating our contract in the very competitive Kapolei market. ”Private Client
“Maria is extremely professional, courteous, and fast! Not only is she amazing to work with, but she has also surrounded herself with a team of professionals that deliver the highest quality of work faster than anyone on the island! She knows who to call for any situation! She was a tremendous help with my VA Loan! I am so grateful for all the help she provided and I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home!!! ”Private Client
“Maria is amazing! Maria sold our house for us - did everything she said she would do and exceeded our expectations. She had everything lined up flawlessly and our house sold for more than we were expecting and in less time than expected. She also helped us get into our dream house. A feat I didn't think would be possible. Honest, professional, excellent follow-up, knowledgeable and thoughtful. Truly the best we've worked with. - can't say enough good things about her.”Private Client
“I feel like I won the lottery when Zillow assigned Maria to us after I submitted my first request for a showing. This was a tough time to buy a home but we ended up with the right property and the right deal. Throughout all the showings and offers we made, Maria encouraged us to be patient and wait for the one we loved. When it came along, she helped engineer the best possible offer that worked for us in such a competitive environment. She expertly held our hands and helped navigated all the complexities of our situation to close. Maria's personal service has no peer in my experience. ”Todd S.
“Maria was very kind and knowledgeable when it came to buying a home. She showed us a home the day we arrived on the island and was tentative to all our needs. Maria was one of the best realtors I have worked with, and I will definitely use her again.”Private Client
“Maria is exceptional, works way beyond what is expected of a real estate agent. The house was full of personal items that she sent to an auction house. Had the house cleaned and was ready to stage the house, it sold 1st. The owner was out of the country at the time of sale. A real people person that takes into consideration the person who is selling the property. This sale was difficult, BUT, it was made easy by Maria. You will not be disappointed selecting Maria as your agent. ”Private Client
