"My husband, Paul King, and I have known Mike for over 30 years. Paul and Mike were kids together in Lanikai. Kailua is a small town, and there are many, many friends of ours who are realtors. But when we were looking to relocate to the Lanikai neighborhood after spending 12 years on Kaneohe Bay, we knew Mike was the one to call. First, we knew we could trust him and that he would always act with our best interests in mind. Second, Mike’s connections to the islands and to our desired neighborhood in particular meant that he was the only one that would be able to find us the house we wanted. Foremost, we knew Mike would be honest with us always even if it wasn’t something we wanted to hear!
We were looking for a house on the ocean with a large yard that was basically move-in ready but with room to expand or remodel. Unfortunately there was nothing on the market at the time that met our needs. Within a couple weeks, we got a call from Mike letting us know he had made some calls to people he thought might be interested in selling! Because Mike made the effort to reach out to those folks, we are now living in the house we dreamed of living in! We mentioned in passing to our other realtor friends that we were looking and gave them our criteria. Their responses amounted to a dismissive 'Good Luck' and a chuckle. Mike didn’t let the fact that there were no homes on the market that we were interested in stop him. He worked hard and found us the house we wanted!
Now it was time to sell our home. Of course Mike was our choice for realtor! He worked really hard to get our home sold to help us close on the new home. We sold our home in less than six months and set a record for the highest sale in our neighborhood and surrounding neighborhoods! We highly recommend Mike Dilks as a realtor. His professionalism and work ethic are unbeatable. His knowledge of the market and connections to other real estate professionals give him an incredible edge over other agents. Mostly, Mike’s honesty and desire to make sure his clients are more than satisfied with the outcome is truly evident in everything he does. "
