"We met Raphael Wellerstein in November 2018 when we interviewed several realtors for our upcoming listing. We were most impressed by his detailed knowledge of the Wailea Ekahi property & keenness to represent us. We listed with Raphael in early January, ended up under contract by the end of April and closed by the end of May. Throughout that period Raphael was obviously very engaged in presenting our condo & advising us. What most impressed us was Raphael’s commitment to timely & detailed communications during the listing period & during the closing process. We have no hesitation in recommending Raphael Wellerstein as a true professional realtor that works diligently for his clients and knows how to assist in “getting the deal done”. Mahalo Raphael!

My husband and I would like to thank you and Steven for your expeditious and excellent service in facilitating our sale at the Polo Beach Club.

"I met Raphael Wellerstein a few years ago when I wanted to know the value of my condo. He was most knowledgeable on every sale in Ekahi Village and the Wailea area and has sold more condos, I think in Ekahi, than any other realtor in Maui. In late 2018, he phoned and advised he may have a buyer if I was interested in selling.
He brought a buyer without the property being listed and the sale was completed through Raphael and Elite Pacific Properties.
Raphael was a pleasure to deal with, totally aware of all necessary steps in selling, and always promptly available for all the many questions that I asked. He arranged for everything with inspections and took care of all the details on my behalf.
I would highly recommend Raphael to anyone looking to buy or sell property in Maui.
My Husband and I have used Raphael for the past 10years to purchase and sell properties 5 times. Every experience from the first to the last has been very professional and successful. Buying and selling can be a very stressful and confusing venture but Raphael has always gone above and beyond to alleviate any stresses and issues that arise during the process. His enthusiasm and knowledge have been invaluable. He was available at any and all times needed and remains a friend of the family always.

""We have worked with Raphael on three separate property purchases in Wailea. Raphael is knowledgeable, energetic, easy to work with, and focused on successfully completing transactions. We would be happy to recommend him.”
We have worked with Raphael on two purchases in Ekahi Village and found him to be fantastic to deal with. He looks out for our interest, and listens to what we are looking for, and negotiates well. We would highly recommend Raphael for all real estate needs on Maui!

"We have been working Raphael since 2010 when he helped us purchase our first condo in Maui. Raphael took the time to meet with us initially for a coffee and we found that he carefully listened to our requirements and was able to answer our many questions about different condos and the different parts of Maui. After looking at numerous condos, we ultimately purchased a unit at the Polo Beach Club. During our search, it was clear that Raphael had extensive knowledge of the real estate market in Maui, and most importantly the Wailea market. Since we are non-residents, the process of buying a condo in Maui was very onerous and time consuming, but we found Raphael was always there to help. In spite of the process, the buying process was still a positive experience thanks to Raphael’s guidance and advice throughout the process.
When we decided to look for a second condo in Wailea, Raph was the first person we contacted. Again, Raphael’s understanding of our needs, attentiveness, and extensive network resulted in him finding an off market listing at the Wailea Ekahi Village that was perfect for us. We were very happy with our purchase at the Polo Beach Club and Ekahi Village. Raph is responsive, transparent, and easy to deal with. He has demonstrated that he always advocates for our best interests and we look forward to working with him again on future real estate transactions in Wailea!
We have no issues in referring Raphael to our friends as we know they will be well represented.
Sammi and I could not thank Raphael enough for all of his help over the years!

Raphael has been my exclusive agent on Maui for the last 15 years. He’s always been very easy and enjoyable to work with. He always shows outstanding service and has never failed to act in my best interest – even when it’s meant that he would lose a sale.
Raphael has a deep knowledge of the Maui market as well as understanding to view properties from an investor’s perspective. He listens to his clients’ needs and melds that with a great ability to look creatively at a deal to make it work out with the best outcome for his client.
Raphael lives the Aloha spirit and always goes above and beyond my expectations before and after the purchase. He is wonderful to work with, and I cannot recommend him highly enough for anyone looking to buy or sell real estate on Maui.

"Raphael Wellerstein assisted us in buying our condo in Kihei, Maui. We could not have asked for a better realtor. He listened to our needs as a buyer and found us a place that we are very satisfied with. During closing we were in Seattle and could not be on site to see if the repairs we asked for had been done. He took the time to go to the condo and FaceTime with us so we could see first had the repairs and condition of the condo. He was very helpful during the entire process providing information and service that was beyond what we had experienced with realtors in the past. He is friendly, supportive and does a great job listening to the clients needs and responds accordingly.

"Selling my condo on Maui was made so much easier dealing with Raphael. He was very professional and always returned my calls promptly. With the three hour time difference between Hawaii and Arizona, I'm sure it was inconvenient at times, but certainly didn't keep Raphael from returning my calls.
It was necessary for me to close on the property before the end of 2014 and Raphael put out 100% effort to see that my closing was completed by December 30th.
I would be very glad to recommend him for any purchase or sale on Maui. Well done, Raphael!"
