My wife and I are from Vermont and through our daughter and son-in-law, who live in Maui, hired Colleen to help us find the perfect place for our two families to purchase and to represent us during the process. Being remote buyers is extremely difficult and Hawaiian real estate transactions are very complicated and much different from the mainland. For example, people don't use attorneys in Hawaii so the parties must rely on their realtor to do much more of the work. There are many required or recommended inspections, surveys are required, and the Hawaii purchase and sales agreement contains numerous time sensitive deadlines and approval sign-offs. Many issues are unique to Hawaii and very unusual to mainland buyers. Colleen was SO thorough and patient with us throughout the three month period and did a terrific job answering all my A- type personality questions. She went well beyond what would have been expected and ensured that every question, every stumbling block and every document was responded to immediately and with efficiency and professionalism. I would STRONGLY recommend Colleen to anyone who is considering buying a property in Maui, especially if they are from the mainland and can't be in Maui to do all the work that needs to be done. Our transaction went through, we have now moved into our new home and couldn't be happier. Thanks Colleen; you're the best.

Colleen is an excellent realtor because she is rooted in the community and has her own expertise in owning and managing investment property. She has a unique knowledge of Hawaii and it's culture, having been born and raised in Hawaii. I would refer my friends to Colleen if they needed a good realtor.

Colleen was a really great realtor to work with for our first home purchase on Maui. She was extremely reliable, knowledgeable, and resourceful as we navigated trying to break into the market at an entry price point. In the case of our home, we had extra steps to navigate with a foreclosure, and Colleen was on it every step of the way. We really appreciate her and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home on Maui.
