"I recently completed a 1031 exchange involving the sale of my apartment building in California and the purchase of 2 Hawaii properties (a condo and a 32 acre orchard). I am a real estate attorney in California and needed an agent for my Hawaii portion of the transaction. Danielle was my other half in the entire transaction. She is honest, trustworthy and is extraordinarily intelligent and well-versed in Hawaii real estate. I trusted her wholeheartedly to handle the entirety of the Hawaii transaction while I took care of the sale in California. She coordinated all escrow matters and was my point person for the Hawaii portion of the 1031 exchange. This woman is a machine! She was ALWAYS responsive, answered every question I had promptly, and was extremely thorough for all due diligence matters. Needless to say, Danielle went above and beyond my expectations. As a real estate attorney, I work with real estate agents on a routine basis. I must say that Danielle is, hands down, the best real estate agent I have ever had the pleasure of doing business with. As a professional, Danielle cares deeply about her business and always conducted herself with utmost professionalism. On a personal level, Danielle is very easy going and just a joy to converse with. I always enjoy communicating with her and she did an excellent job easing any worries I had involving the Hawaii transaction. Danielle also has a very unique and impressive expertise in Hawaii agricultural land and farming operations, which I needed in this sale. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to any of my clients, family, friends, or anyone looking to purchase or sell real estate on the Big Island."

"Danielle helped us purchase two of our homes within the past two years. From our experience, she is definitely the best realtor on the Big Island! She's very knowledgeable, goes above and beyond and always has your best interest front and center! You can depend on Danielle to be on your side fighting for you despite any hiccups along the way. She answers your questions or concerns promptly and will keep you informed throughout the entire process. No worries! You can trust her to get the job done!!"

"I don't normally write reviews, but this has been earned and is deserved. My wife and I recently purchased a very difficult foreclosure property in Kona. We selected Danielle after interviewing many agents carefully, as We were especially impressed with her tenure on the island, knowledge of estate, zoning, tax, social, legal and general construction expertise issues. Danielle saved our purchase as in the middle of escrow we lost our lender. Danielle found a new one for us and she really worked hard to complete the complex sale. She masterfully guided the sale to closing and is now providing us with reputable contractor sources for our big rebuild job and adding sound advice. Great in timely communications, clear, concise expertise in every aspect of this very difficult sale, trustworthy. We wouldn't have our new home if not for Daniele's diligent expertise, We cant say enough how happy we are with her and would highly recommend using her for any real-estate needs. Just the best. Aloha Danielle Mrs and Mrs D&M"

"Danielle was very tenacious in finding the right property for us. The property she found for us was precisely what we were looking for. She remembered every detail of what was important to us. She negotiated a great price. She seemed to be available 24/7, since she answered questions no matter what time it was. She helped us through the entire process."

"Danielle was amazing for us. Recommended but one of her previous clients and did not disappoint. There was no nonsense and was quick to figure out what we were after with a few emails. Highly recommend!"

- Clay Balser

"Danielle is the very best realtor we’ve worked with. She was superb in every way, her knowledge of BI properties, the market, the other realtors and how they work, and negotiating a great price for us. And she is so very patient, she did all the legwork and found us our dream oceanfront home on the BI. Go with Danielle and you will be so pleased!!"

- Prakash Bhatia

"I have been highly satisfied with Danielle's assistance throughout this rather complicated land sale and 1031 exchange. She is attentive to detail, quick in her follow up of related issues or concerns and is a good communicator. I highly recommend her to others."

- Marlene Hapai

"Being my first time in selling a family home, Danielle has been most helpful, very knowledgeable and offering valuable suggestions. She's aggressive with real estate values but sensitive to sentimental value. Danielle is very efficient in doing business, very prompt, follow ups, always on top of things to get the job done!"

- Leah WahYick

"I was so lucky to have Danielle answer my inquiry. Her contractor knowledge was extremely helpful in purchasing an older home on the Hamakua coast. She was very knowledgeable regarding construction and whether it was done correctly. Danielle is very honest and gives your accurate information. She always responded to my emails and texts in a timely manner. We were dealing with a difficult seller but her patience, negotiating skills and "never give up" attitude made the sale happen. I highly doubt I would have been able to purchase my home without Danielle. I HIGHLY recommend Danielle to any buyers. You won't be disappointed!"

- Vernice Vasquez

"We chose Danielle based on all of these amazing reviews, and we were not disappointed. I feel like we won the Realtor jackpot! From the first email Danielle was on top of everything! We had limited time in HI but were able to find an amazing property. Negotiations went smoothly and we couldn't believe how seamless the whole process was. This was all due to Danielle! We cannot recommend her highly enough!"

- Carolyn and Luke Martyn

"I appreciate Danielle's knowledgeable presentation and the fact she is a straight shooter. She is so helpful and you can tell she loves sharing the aloha experience with everyone she meets"

- Holly Pippin

""Danielle listens to what you want or need. We described what we were interested in, she took us to those properties. She has a vast knowledge of real estate, construction and property investment. Plus she's very smart, if you have a question she usually knows the answer, if not she gets back to you immediately.""

"Danielle defines the “real” in Realtor.” My brother and I had a great experience working with someone who is 100% honest, upfront and “real” about the nearly 30 properties that we looked at. Since I was 15 years old, I dreamt of purchasing a home in my 20’s. I thought that was impossible! However, she helped us find the right home, for the right price and made it possible! She drove from Honokaa to Hilo multiple times for us. She promptly answered our phone calls, e-mails and fulfilled all of our requests. Being that she is a co-owner of a design and drafting company, she shared a lot of knowledge regarding the county planning and building codes. She literally guided us from start to finish! Danielle was like the older sister that we never had. We learned a lot from her! When selecting a realtor, honesty & integrity; knowledge of the purchase and loan process; patience; responsiveness; knowledge of the real estate market; good communication; negotiation skills; sense of humor and passion are a must! Danielle has it ALL!"

- Jason Maltezo
