"Sara operates with the highest standard of integrity. Do not except this from all agents within the Hawaiian real estate market. Sara is a priceless exception. Hawaii real estate transactions are frequently non linear. You should except some bumps and stalls. You will want Sara, a seasoned and honest professional, guiding you as you go through the process."
"Sara helped us purchase our condo in Kona. She was very familiar with the various condo complexes in the area and showed us a lot of options while we were on the island. We found one we liked even though we were back home on the Mainland, but he expertise allowed us to make the purchase and finalize the deal from the Mainland. We split our time between Kona and the Mainland and Sara was always there to answer and questions, a real professional!"
"Sara was our listing agent when we decided to sell, she was very knowledgeable about the HARPTA tax that is now imposed on non-resident owners. Her advise and direction gave us a big advantage when we applied for a refund of some of our money held in escrow, we were able to recover most of the money held!"
"Sara helped me buy and sell all in a few weeks - we communicated daily on multiple subjects and Sara worked incredibly hard to keep all the parts moving and making certain buyers and sellers were informed and happy!"
"I could not have had a better experience! While working with Sara, I saw how professional and intuitive she is during her transactions. She understood things regarding the sale before I had a chance to explain them to her and she was always concerned with how I was doing through the process. This sale was done quickly and diligently. Sara was able to get me the price I needed and she did it so quickly, too."
