Minoo is absolutely amazing! She was on top of every one of our needs. She was responsive and very professional. I would say our transaction was so easy and fast, I do not doubt this is a direct result of Minoo’s dedication towards her clients. If you need real estate guidance or have any doubts about your current realtor, give Minoo a call, you will not be disappointed.

Aaron helped us buy 2 rental units. We gave him our criteria, favorable location, good rent, low Maintenance fee and well managed association. He found units
that met them.

My goal was to retire in Kauai. This would require finding the right house in the right location and moving across the Pacific. I was not familiar with Hawaii Real Estate Laws. Throughout the process she assisted with educating me. Most noted has been her continued availability after Escrow closed. Moving across the Pacific required more coordination that other moves I had made. Not only did we find the right house which met all my expectations, but also her assistance with things I was not familiar with resulted in my retirement dream coming true smoothly.
She has been true professional, which means stands above the rest. High standard in every aspect. Educated classy manner, kind, very helpful, positive and most of all she is trustworthy. I highly recommend anyone who is looking for agent to sell or buy. She is the Best.
Very knowledgeable agent who knows the Oahu area like the back of his hand. He gave us the opportunity to check out a couple of homes in the Diamond head area that sparked our interest and also knew of a few places that were not yet on the market. I highly recommend this agent if you are looking for luxury homes in the Oahu island.
Our Elite Pacific Properties realtor was excellent! She positioned our condo to sell and helped us find the right single-family home. She knew her stuff and worked hard for us. We got the second home that we bid on — and it was so much better than the first one we thought we wanted. We love our home and the location. With a very few exceptions, it’s pretty much exactly what we had in mind when we started the process. We’ll always be thankful for Elite Pacific Properties and their top-of-the-line staff.
They helped us find and purchase a high end condo that met all of our needs as well as rent it out when we are not on island. We were helped with a showing, help negotiating, understanding the choices and areas in the islands. They have helped us market and set up our place for better and more frequent rentals.
- bill colton
She not only helped find a place for my son and I to live she helped us make repairs to the condo I was selling to meet buyer expectations and found me a beautiful unit with two bedrooms. The consummate professional.
We were very impressed with her knowledge of the market , the effort she put into understanding our needs and help us find a house to our liking in this very unique market. She goes the extra mile and makes herself available at all times of the day and all days of the week. We found her attitude very professional and is part of a network of professionals that came in very handy when we had to deal with a complication.
This guy rocks. He really knows his market and is good at going the extra distance to get your transaction successfully closed. He lives in the area and knew the history of most of the properties. He also had current inventory information readily available. I felt very comfortable that my property was being handled in a professional manner.
We have used Elite Pacific in selling two houses and buying two others in the course of a year. While there are other reputable firms around, I always felt I was being dealt with openly and frankly in terms of the state of the market and realistic pricing of properties. Our agent was of course the most important link to the firm but I also felt I was being helped by a whole firm as opposed to just an individual and our agent was always quick to utilize the extensive resources of the firm, including drawing on the expertise and experience of other members of the firm.

First of all, she did many things for me more than as my agent. Even after she finished her job, still helped me out in many way. I moved in Hawaii from New York City – the same US but there are differences in every way, – especially about the process of buying properties. She gave me great support. I was comfortable with her during and after buying a property. And this is a very important point. I explained to her what I was looking for. She very quickly got my point/request on my dream house. I didn’t have a lot of time. She showed me many properties, almost all of them were what I was looking for. She is polite and casual at the same time. She is a prompt, reliable agent.
Met her at an open house and was impressed with her local knowledge of the area and ability to direct me to financing options. She followed up on all my questions and I'm looking forward to closing a solid property in escrow!
Great Real Estate Agent. Personable, completely dedicated on my search for a home. Very well knowledgeable about all areas throughout the process. Very happy , highly recommended.
Awesome realtor to work with. She responds quickly when providing answers to questions. Made first-time home buying experience an educational and smooth one. :)
The experience with this team has been altogether a wonderful thing. The level of professionalism and the results oriented style leaves one comfortably relieved in knowing that the job has been more than well done. I would recommend them to anyone, anytime and look forward and intend to work with them again. Please feel free to contact me personally if I can answer any question in particular about the superior functioning of this fine team
Working with Elite Pacific Properties was a very pleasant one. Their helpful staff was always there to lend a hand whenever I needed them. The people at the office were always looking after my needs and were very respectful and courteous. I will definitely work with them again and recommend them to family and friends.
We had a very positive experience buying our new home with Elite. An Elite agent helped us identify potential new homes in the area that we were considering, including visiting open houses over multiple weekends. We also put in several offers that weren’t accepted, but are ultimately happy with our new home and the overall purchase.
Pretty much can’t say enough about our experience. Nobody’s time was wasted and our questions were addressed IMMEDIATELY. Communication was frequent and we were never left wondering. Often my wife and I felt as though we were their only client. Style was key…NO pressure at all ever…end of story. Willingness to show us many more properties had we had the inclination. Experience was off the charts positive. Frank and Cathy Parrino. Moloka’i
- Frank Parrino
Cathy was wonderful . She made us both feel like family. She brought her local knowledge of the area to help us find a real Hawaiian home. She understood what we were looking for, had faith in us and proved a real advocate in finding and closing our place. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home in Hawaii.
I would definitely recommend Cathy! She has been very helpful in our search for a vacation home. We have not yet purchased a home, but she has always done her part! It has only been our busy work schedule that has prevented us from buying.
Cathy is very outgoing, helpful and a pleasure to work with. She is very patient. She listens to her clients very attentively in order to figure out what type of property best fits their needs. She is never pushy and allows the buyer room to explore what is available on the market thoroughly. Cathy always makes herself available and makes you feel like you are her only client.
Cathy has been terrific with the help for a perfect place! She knows the neighborhoods and listens to my specific objectives. In addition, she is super responsive as every email and phone call is returned promptly. I recommend Cathy to anyone looking for a great agent!
Cathy was excellent in making us feel comfortable purchasing a house. She was very knowledgeable and had a lot of time and patience for us, which gave us the confidence we needed to pull the trigger on buying a new home. She is confident and honest. She is very easy to talk to, and she always had time for us. I highly recommend her!
Cathy is a one of a kind realtor who goes above and beyond your expectations! She keeps you well informed during the entire house buying process. Makes sure that if you have any questions they are answered in a timely manner most likely within 10 minutes. You will not go wrong picking this realtor! Highly recommend!
We worked with Cathy for over 3 months to find the right home for us for our budget and needs. She was terrific, patience, and extremely knowledgeable of the market. There were some challenges to overcome during the process which, without her, we would have not been able to overcome… truly and outstanding professional and we highly recommend her for your home purchase. We will definitely be working with Cathy in the future when we are ready to move on. Will list with her and have her help us with our next purchase.
Since the moment I contacted Cathy she was super helpful. She knew the neighbor we were interested and showed us properties that fit our description of what we wanted. She was not pushing us to buy anything, she wanted us to find the perfect fit. And we did. We couldn’t be happier about our choice. And we had all the help we needed. We took the time we needed and it all worked out. Thank you very much Cathy! If we ever need help again we will for sure contact you!

I had submitted a request on Zillow for an estimate of what my home was worth, and to my surprise, I received a knock at my door with a detailed folder showing other homes for sale in my neighborhood, a snapshot of what my home was worth (based on information available to the public), and a friendly and warm smile! I have not regretted my decision to have Cathy Pierce list my home since moment 1! Cathy is exceptionally dedicated to her clients, and very thorough with the whole process. I had a million questions, and Cathy had a million answers. She returns all of her phone calls and emails very promptly, and always makes you feel like a priority to her. Once you list a home with Cathy, you will want to take her with you everywhere you move!
- amy r cozort
Cathy has always been appropriate, timely, and very thorough. She has always provided us with more than enough homes in our price range and she was very sensitive about the needs of our family and the desires we expressed in our choices. I have referred Cathy in good faith to others, and will continue to do so. I believe she has integrity, and honesty, and she does not place the sale of a home in front of the needs of the buyers!!!! She is a great Realtor and has become a great Friend!
Mrs. Pierce is very Professional and provides world class service! She made buying my home a smooth and nearly seamless process. Additionally, she was always quick to address my concerns and requests. I will whole heartedly recommend Cathy to all my friends, family, colleagues and anyone else in need of real estate related services.
- dion wigfall
Ms. Pierce is highly motivated, highly dedicated, and highly intuitive when it comes to serving her clients, whether it be buying or selling real estate. I would not hesitate a second in recommending Cathy Pierce! After listening to my dream list, Ms. Pierce not only secured my dream property in LESS than 24 hours, but also brought an over-the-list-price offer to me before even having the first open house on my listed property. In other words, she helped me both sell and purchase property, and, did this double duty FLAWLESSLY. This woman is amazing; there is nothing she will not do to help buy and sell properties for her clientele in a timely and utmost professional manner.
Lydia Bishop is highly professional, knowledgeable, hard worker and great realtor. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a realtor. She was a joy to work with when helping us find our home.
Lydia is the consummate professional. She impressed us when we traveled to Hawaii for our house hunting trip last year. A huge binder was made for us with weblinks, maps and neighborhood information. She had us lined up for house showings every day of our trip. She showed us dang near the whole island! We left no stone unturned. She always kept in contact with us back in Virginia and provide rock solid real estate advice. We were so thankful to have her as our realtor. Mahalo Lydia!
We choose to go with Lydia as our buyer’s agent because of her expert local knowledge of the housing market. She kept us abreast of available houses and navigated us through every step of the process. Lydia also has a keen eye to investment opportunities. We would certainly recommend Lydia if you are buying or selling your home or looking for income producing properties.
Lydia was my realtor when I purchased my house a little over a year ago. She helped me through each step of the process, kept the sale alive a few times when it could have fell through, and saved me about $50,000 through excellent negotiations. When I found my house I immediately fell in love with the house but the seller was asking above market value. I didn’t want to lose it and was ready to offer full asking price but Lydia helped me to negotiate a lower price. This was important because if the house didn’t appraise high enough I wouldn’t be able to get the loan. The owner was very proud of his house so we had to be careful not to insult him while still getting the best price. The appraisal came in a little lower than our newly negotiated price and I was worried that I couldn’t afford to make up the difference so I wouldn’t be able to get the loan and buy the house. Lydia once again helped to negotiate with the owner a lower price in line with the appraisal. Once the price and the appraisal were aligned we were able to get the loan approved and I was able to buy the house. Lydia recommended Derek and Jodie at Pacific Rim Mortgage and they were wonderful too. They helped me through every step of the mortgage process and saved me money too. I highly recommend Lydia to anyone looking to buy or sell a house. She has great customer service, excellent negotiating technique, knows the Hawaii real estate market, and works harder than anyone should have to.
As a first time home buyer in Hawaii I was suspicious and unfamiliar with the process, Lydia Bishop made the situation simple. What I did not understand she explained. Lydia responded with extreme promptness to all of my questions. She fought tooth and nail for me and I believe truly represented my interests. I highly recommend her services, and will be using her again. Without Lydia I would undoubtedly still be looking and evaluating properties instead of trying to figure out paint combinations for the new home. Truly, she is valuable member to have on the team, and I am very happy to have met her.
If you are looking for a real estate agent who gets the job done then you’ve found the right one. She was so impressive. I’ve bought and sold my home many times before and Lydia was the first Rep who put aside all the pushy salesmanship and simply got it done! She helped me sell my home in NJ years ago! I was newly divorced and quite confused and a bit nervous. She was efficient and personable, and I never felt like I was being lied to or pushed into anything. She was honest and told me what needed to get done to sell my home and then proceeded to help me with getting it done. She then helped me look at so many homes to buy until I found the perfect home. She had a wealth of referrals for contractors, plumber,etc and they all turned out perfect! I recommend her highly…..I wish she hadn’t moved so far away….any residents of Hawaii…you are very lucky! You will not be disappointed.

My wife and I bought our first home from Lydia and were extremely impressed with her knowledge, skills, and service. We started the home buying process while in North Carolina, and only because of our trust in Lydia. My wife was extremely anxious about starting paperwork without seeing the house in person, but Lydia thoroughly explained the process, skyped with us to show the house, and reassured us that we would have the chance to cancel if necessary. The house is perfect for us, and we could not be happier with how it all unfolded. Why should you use Lydia? She communicates quickly, thoroughly and consistently. Due to the time difference, email and text proved to be the best mode of communication at first, but Lydia consistently called if we texted or emailed her with a concern that felt like a crisis to us (which in retrospect, really weren’t). She is extremely knowledgeable about the home buying process. This was our first time buying a home, and we feel like we actually understood everything we signed. She was never pushy when it came to us making decisions-she simply provided the facts, and her experiences-but only if we asked. Once we came to a decision and informed her, Lydia took the time to explain the next steps based off our decision. She is by far the most professional and honest realtor we spoke to when first looking for agents. Lydia explained and completed everything by the books, and her actions proved that she truly believes in doing the right thing for her clients and customers. It is very rare to find such an honest, hardworking and thorough agent. Call Lydia today, you will not be disappointed!
Lydia replied within minutes of my inquiry on a property on Oahu. She was very professional and informative, answering all of my questions and offered options and suggestions that would help me make a better decision.
We were very pleased with Lydia’s service. Her knowledge and willingness to help, made it easy for us to work with her. I would definitely recommend Lydia for your real estate purchasing needs.
If you want a personal touch, someone who listens, and goes above and beyond to find “YOUR” house, Lydia Bishop is your Realtor. We would recommend her to everyone we know! Why we liked working with Lydia: * Lydia was always honest with us and answered all of our questions and believe me there was plenty! She was truly motivated to help us find the perfect home. She provided great tools for us to assist in selecting homes to go and see. * When we first started, we were all over the place with our requirements, as we started to see houses, she helped us refine and define what we really wanted. * She often anticipated our desires to see homes. Her experience helped us to find the right house, get a good price, and close quickly. * Lydia was always available by phone, text or email whenever we needed to speak with her on any issues and would always promptly respond to email /texts/calls. * She did not push us into homes nor did she push us away from homes. Instead she asked us how we felt about the home after each visit and let us come to our own decisions. If we were unsure, we asked her for her personal/professional opinion and only then would she influence our decision. If we didn’t like the homes we saw, she would go back and find new ones. That’s one of the important things we liked about Lydia. No pressure. If the home you see isn’t what you want, look at some more. * It is easy to get emotional and react to various situations during the process, especially when it involves purchasing something so expensive. Lydia helped us to focus on our end goal; to win the bid and then close on the home. She recommended the strategy/approach we needed to take in dealing with the seller’s agent and often helped keep us grounded. * Purchasing a home is a business transaction, but some of the other agents that we interviewed before Lydia treat the entire process as purely business (very impersonal and all-business). Our experience with Lydia while professional was also very personal, we got to learn about Lydia, her family and likewise she got to know us. She made us feel like family. And I would like to think we have a friend for life. * We loved that she held several traits that were near and dear to us: Honesty, Integrity and Loyalty. We chose Lydia Bishop to be our buyer’s agent and had a great experience. If we are going to sell our house and or buy another, Lydia will be our first and only choice! We recommend her and hope you have the same experience and service we received from having Lydia as our agent.
My girlfriend and I were in the market looking for a home when we met Lydia Bishop at an open house. She was very friendly, knowledgeable and easy to talk to. We decided to make Lydia our realtor. We met with Lydia and she went over every aspect of getting a home; from the things we needed to provide her to specifying our search criteria and even what to expect during each phase of the process. The way lydia presented the information was very organized, clear and easy to understand. She really hustled in providing us with lots of options to choose from, as well as setting up open houses. She used her experience and knowledge to find us the perfect home, and did everything she could to ensure that all our needs were met. Even with all our busy schedules Lydia kept in constant communication and was able to deliver all necessary documents on time, which is very critical when trying to close the deal. The process of getting a home can be very stressful, so it really helped having Lydia on our team. We couldn’t be happier with our new home and I would definitely recommend Lydia Bishop to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. With Lydia, you’re not just a client, you’re family!
Diane is a very positive force with a great smile and personality. I have bought 5 homes in the past . . . and Diane is at the top of the list of the realtors I have worked with.
I have worked with a number of realtors over the years both in buying and selling real estate. I found that Diane’s effort on our behalf was well beyond our experience with other realtors and exceeded what we believe should be expected from a realtor.
Diane came as a recommendation from a family in Honolulu. She worked with us consistently and professionally via telephone and email since we resided on the East Coast. She arranged to show our apartment and insured that it was presentable at all times without us there. We had used a previous realtor who didn’t sell for us over a year. Diane accomplished our sale in about a month. She is easy to work with and reliable.
Diane was a HUGE help when I needed to sell two Waikiki properties that had belonged to my parents and I did not live in Hawaii. I staged both places, she got them listed, and within two weeks we had a full price offer on one and close to asking price on the other.
I called Diane because I was interested in finding a fixer upper at a reasonable price. Within a couple of weeks I was able to purchase a fairly nice house in a very nice neighborhood. Diane went above and beyond the call of duty, that’s just how she does things. She got all the information that I wanted as soon as I asked for it and she did it right away. Her professionalism was just outstanding and she always went one step beyond what was needed. The most outstanding service she gave me was when my mother was ill in the hospital. We had to sign papers within a period of time and Diane came to the hospital to meet with me under these not so great circumstances. She brought with her some beautiful flowers, but what really touched me was her compassion. She has a heart of gold!
If I were going to purchase another residence, I would not think twice about calling Diane. Diane doesn’t stop until she has found just the right place. She was incredibly responsive 24/7 and listened really well to our needs (and we’re not easy to please!). She took the time to continually talk with us so that she understood in detail what we were looking for in all aspects of a residence and within a certain price range. Her follow up and maintaining contact with us has been incredible — we’ve been very happy and could not have found just the right place without Diane as our agent. Easily a five-star agent!
Beverly takes the time to get to know you and it really helps give peace of mind. She really made it an easy process and found a lender who also gave the feeling of aloha. It was a great experience for us buying our first home and we would recommend her services to friends and family.
Beverly has been truly exceptional in providing her real estate expertise and service to our family. She genuinely cares about her clients and offers tremendous knowledge in the area of real estate, her customer service is the highest caliber I’ve experienced and would recommend her to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home in Hawai’i. Her greatest quality throughout the sales process has been her deliberate care and effort to ensure our needs were met. Professional, quality customer service, and exceptional industry knowledge!
As a first time property buyer I was not sure what would be necessary or required of me. However, Beverly understood my particular situation and was willing to spend all the time necessary and showed me the proper steps it took to close. Mahalo Nui Loa Beverly.

Beverly was very helpful. Whenever we had a question or concern, she was always there with an answer/solution. She was very quick to return our phone call or text.
My wife and I wanted to explore the possibility of purchasing a second home on Maui. Made contact with an agent through the Elite website. With a few phone calls and emails, the agent was able to set up search criteria that allowed us to identify properties to review when we arrived in Maui for our annual vacation. As the agent began to show us different properties, we were impressed with the agent’s knowledge of the Maui market and patience in listening to us/exchanging ideas. When we decided on a property, the agent worked up the comps and we made a fair offer. The offer was not accepted, but as I write this review, the property still has not sold and the price is dropping closer to what agent felt it was worth. Eventually, we found the perfect place. The agent continued to support us through escrow, did the final inspections and picked up the keys for us since we had to return to the mainland. The entire process of reviewing properties through purchase and escrow were completely supported by our agent. Was completely satisfied with this agent and would recommend Elite Pacific Properties.
Honest and very competent. Karen went above and beyond in handling all aspects of our home purchase as a military family buying from the mainland! We were struggling to find a home online. Karen quickly understood our requirements and worked to find a home in the area we desired. Karen represented both the buyers (us) and the sellers in our transaction and did an excellent job of balancing this role.
Stephen handled the sale of our house in Waialae-Kahala late last year. Six months earlier, before we were even ready to launch the listing, he outlined for us who he felt would become our “best case” buyer: a young professional family, with kids, who wanted to move into the Kahala school district. Stephen’s subsequent advice on what to do to prepare the house for sale was also spot-on. We could have spent a great deal of money upgrading the older, more traditional island home with all sorts of bells and whistles — but he felt that would be unnecessary. None of that prevented Stephen from proposing an aggressive asking price — one which even I thought might prove too optimistic. But… by evening of the first day the listing went “live,” we had an offer OVER our asking price, and a signed contract shortly thereafter. 45 days later, we closed escrow on a completely seamless transaction! The buyers? ..the very same young professional family, with kids, that he had visualized for us eight months earlier!
We have done 4 real estate deals with Debbie, 3 as the seller & 1 as a buyer & she is one of the best Agents on the west side of Maui! She is extremely knowledgeable about the area, a joy to work with & with 2 of our sales, her innovation & superior rapport with the other Agents, keep our deals together & brought them to fruition. I cannot recommend Debbie highly enough for ANYONE thinking of buying or selling on the West side, you will not be disappointed!
- Lynda MARTIN-LAWLEY
Kristin Counter is working with us to find a 2nd home on Oahu and has been a completely wonderful resource. Kristin grew up on Oahu and knows the neighborhoods of that island like the back of her hand. She is interested in understanding her clients needs as well as enthusiastic in gaining knowledge of how the real estate market and over all re-development is changing on Oahu. I learned quite a bit from her over the course of the week I spent with her touring and reviewing the prospective properties that were available in our price range. Kristin and I still talk regularly over the phone and via email. She is always prompt and timely in getting back to me no matter the time difference. I tend to want answers right away and she has never disappointed me! I can recommend more highly Kristin if your looking for a home on Oahu.
Bridget is an outstanding real estate agent. She kept in touch till I was ready to buy and walked me through everything. House buying is stressful as it is. She took care of everything that She could take care of, that was not a requirement for me to handle. She followed up after closing and still keeps in touch for questions concerns and recommendations too. :)
My purchase transaction with Linh Lopez was swift and seamless from start to finish. She more than exceeded my expectations throughout the process with her level of professionalism and expertise, not to mention the fact that she negotiated an amazing deal on my condo. Linh was very accessible regarding any concerns/inquiries and was quite helpful post-transaction with my renovations as well. She actually assisted me in selecting my kitchen cabinets, countertop and tiles. Linh has proven to be highly competent, thorough and knowledgeable in real estate. I will certainly utilize her services again for any future transactions. Linh did a wonderful job, going above and beyond!!
Even though we sold our condo during a seller’s market in a prime location we wanted to leverage a great real estate professional to get the optimum value in a short period of time. My husband and I did our due diligence by researching on-line and asking for referrals. After identifying three potential agents, we interviewed each of them. Greg and his business partner, Lisa, were head and shoulders above other candidates. Greg came prepared with a customized presentation that showed he had thoroughly done his homework on understanding our property and what we could sell it for. It was a no pressure presentation where he left the material for my husband and I to review. Without saying he demonstrated professional expertise and credibility. His outstanding and impressive customer service continued long after we signed on with him to represent us. We’re glad we worked with Greg. As an example here are just a few of the great customer service he gave us: he worked with our very strict condominium managers to build good rapport to get permission to hold frequent open houses; he used best in class and professional photographer/videographer to make our property stand out for online viewers; he used his knowledge and soft negotiating skills to get the buyer and his agent to accept our counter; and he offered to help us do last minute move-out and cleaning because we had to tend to an out of town matter the week that escrow closed. Honestly, it was like having my mother support us throughout the sale process — total trust and care from Greg Mroz! This was the 5th home we sold and in each instance we have always sought out a real estate professional that had a track record of getting optimum price a in a short sale period of time. Although we’ve had great experience with more seasoned sales agent in the past, Greg brings a personable and innovative approach — he has raised the bar for future real estate agents that we hire. One last thing, when we put our condo for sale, there were 3 other units similar to ours for sale in the same high rise and we closed within a month for top price per square foot!
Gretchen is the best! She impressed me during the whole process of buying my house. I loved how calmly she took care of things but never letting anything slip by her. She had done her homework on the property I wanted which made me feel secure every step of the way. Thank you Gretchen!
Working with Minoo was a great experience. She was able to answer all our questions, if she wasn't sure she knew who to reach out to. She went the extra mile for us. My husband and I appreciate her hard work and all she did for us! Aloha!
- L. Olivarez
Minoo and her team are amazing! She is very knowledgeable of her market and industry - especially now a days with internet tools real estate folks really need to stand apart in value - and Minoo absolutely makes her value stand out! She is also very accessible, responsive, and easy to work with. Thank you Minoo for your help, and finding my family and I our new home in Hawaii!! I look forward to working with you again in the future. Mahalo!
- A. Cagnoni
We contacted Minoo a couple of years ago when we first thought of buying a place in Hawaii. Even though we weren't ready to buy, Minoo gave us her time and talked us through the process. We were immediately impressed by Minoo's friendliness, knowledge of the market and how she managed our expectations about what was possible. Every time we had questions Minoo would provide answers by text or email. Fast forward a couple of years, and once we were ready to buy, Minoo arranged all of the showings we asked for, and we were able to find exactly what we wanted. I'd highly recommend Minoo to anyone who is looking for a knowledgable, motivated, friendly realtor in Hawaii.
- R. Holdstock
Minoo was an excellent agent and would totally recommend her! We found our dream house in one day thanks to her prework! We worked with her online & the phone before flying out to pick our home. She even did our walkthru since we were out of town!
- M. Pivo
I have bought and sold many houses, and Minoo is the best Broker I've worked with. She has a customer focus that is a benchmark I wish others had. Her professionalism and drive is refreshing when so many seem to be part time in the real estate business and everyone has a license to sell. Being a standout in a washed out business is difficult to do, but she has nailed it. Her infectious personality and caring helpful spirit had lead us to be close friends well after the real estate closed.
- D. Crane
During the process of selling my Mothers home Minoo was very in tune with my needs. She literally held my hand through each step of the process. She helped me to prepare the house for listing, and after 5 days on the Market it was sold for $10,000.00 over the asking price.
- A. Harper
Minoo and I began working together in June toward reaching my goal of purchasing property on Oahu. We accomplished that goal in early December when I closed on a newly remodeled house in Kailua.
Ms. Elison is highly qualified and demonstrated professionalism throughout the long process. She was patient during my barrage of first-time home buyer and VA-specific financing questions. She was flexible and persistent as we sifted through dozens of house, condo, and neighborhood prospects. Most of the properties we evaluated -- and there were dozens – were unacceptable. She persevered, however, until we found a house that met my parameters. Shortly after we placed an offer, we confronted the biggest challenge in the process: the seller’s real estate agent, who was unprofessional and almost undermined the sale. Thankfully, Ms. Elison's edication and communication skills, verbally and in writing, kept the sale progressing. I’m certain the purchase would have fallen through had it not been for her ability to effectively handle conflict and keep our goal in sight.
I confidently recommend Minoo to any home buyer and attest to her diligence in guiding buyers through the buying process while remaining focused on a mutual goal. It was a pleasure working with someone of Ms. Elison caliber.
- C. Acuna
Minoo has all the elements of a top-notch realtor: knowledgeable, professional, receptive, sensitive to the needs of the buyer or seller, and bottom-line, educates and mentors you with care and intention so you make the right decision. When we bought our home, were worried about the competition, especially when 3 bids were submitted on our top choice. Minoo eased our fears, took action, and consulted us to a winning offer with paperwork and legalese in hand. She helped us realize our dream with minimal hassle and stress. Thank you, Minoo! We would highly recommend you to anyone.
