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.

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

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!

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!
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!

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!
