Thank you for your generosity and your kindness. It means a lot.
Thank you! Our experience was wonderful. It was very smooth and quick!
What I liked best was the website and the fast response times and communication with the team.
We had been house searching/dreaming for quite a while before we actually decided to actively start home shopping. Your website made it easy to compare listings and costs. In fact the home we ended up with didn’t show up on other searches we did since the address wasn’t listed, but we found it on your site.
Tom and Don were great. They kept us informed every step of the way. I never had to worry about what was happening (and I’m a worrier).
I also felt comfort in knowing they had our best interests in mind.
Lastly, the realtor credit was huge for us. Reducing our closing costs was very important to us and the credit helped immensely.
Thanks again for everything!
It was great working with Don & Tom: excellent communication and information about the purchasing processes, including reminders , quick follow-up.
I had a really great experience.
Thank you Bryn! I had nothing but great experience with OahuRe (Tom and Don).
At first, I was apprehensive about using your company at first since I have never meet your team in-person, but after everything was set and done, it was a easy and pleasant experience.
If I was to purchase or sell another property in Hawaii, I would definitely use your company again without any hesitation.
I do not think there is anything more they could have done to make this any better. Thanks again Oahure!
Thank you very much for everything!
1. What we liked most about your service:
- quick resolution and notification by you, Tom & Don regarding taking over the sale
- the fact that Tom & Don came over to the house to personally meet both Jeff and I right away
- Tom called us frequently with updates and kept us informed throughout the process
- email updates/showing requests so we knew what was going on and when
- we were able to save some money by going with your company
2. We don't really have any suggestions for improvement. We are very happy.
Sorry for the delay, I went off island after closing. We had a great experience with Tom & Don, they are an awesome team! We will definitely recommend them.
We wanted to say "Thank you very much, for all you have done." You are by far the very best team.
The quality of service and expertise you provided is unmatched.
God Bless and we will refer, recommend, and tell friends, buyers and sellers we meet and come across about your team.
Please stop in when you are in our neck of the woods. Thanks again for all your hard work.
I like the way we were always being kept informed what was going on in the sale of our property.
I can't think of anything you could do to improve, just keep providing the outstanding service you and all the staff are doing.
It was nice to work with Tom and Don as well as the rest of the team, keeping me informed throughout the process.
The messages from Cathyrine were helpful but the video explaining the messages she sends would be most helpful in the beginning for me.
I would recommend this company for anyone looking for property.
Your website is unparalleled. It makes house searching as easy as possible, or as complex and focused as desired.
As a detail-oriented guy, who puts a lot, and I mean a lot, of research into purchases, I really appreciated all of the different data points you guys offer.
The search tools allowed me to focus down as much as I wanted, and the daily automatic updates by email allowed me to stay on top of the market.
You, Bryn, also personally responded, very quickly i might add, to several questions I had in regards to the website, and the tools you offer.
Tom, Don, and Cathy were very helpful throughout the process. Tom in particular was always available to answer my questions, and show Jari houses.
Throughout the short sale process, we felt like Tom was our advocate, making sure that our best interests were being looked after.
Overall, we wish the short sale process could have went smoother, especially in regards to the sellers and the selling agent.
But, to be fair, I've heard that short sales are pretty much always goat-rodeos.
Tom Malloy has been great to work with both selling our old place and the long process of buying our new Home. Getting the Keys today… Your website is probably your greatest advantage.
We are finally exhaling today, after moving my dear mother into her new home yesterday. The entire month of October was a whirlwind and using the seller's NexTitle (First Hawaii Title) for escrow was chaotic.
But, the awesome OahuRE.com team was steadfast with me all the way through to the proverbial closing finish line -- right on schedule, right on cue, special thanks to Abegail's and Mannie's attention to details, clear and timely communication.
I said in my earlier message that I wanted to express a "proper" thank you.
I believe the best way for me to do that is to first say THANK YOU so very much for helping and finalizing the purchase of a very special home for my mother.
The apartment is just right for my 75-year old mother. The next best way to properly thank you is to share my exuberance on using OahuRE.com with everyone I know who is interested in purchasing or selling real property in Hawaii.
What I liked most about OahuRE.com service -- there are many things I like about OahuRE.com, but the whole online/virtual concept is most noteworthy for me.
How else could I have researched, found, offered, escrowed, and closed on a home for my 75-year old mother, all done online from Washington, DC? OahuRE.com served as my proxy from open house visits to handing the keys to my mother. Fantastic!
The rebate at settlement was a nice bonus.
I just chatted with Tom a few minutes ago as he was just checking in to see how we were doing after the close and moving my mother in.
I cannot use anyone else for my real estate needs.
Now, I am getting ready for our next property, no, really....Tom is on it as we speak! Thank you and Mahalo to a great team,
I cannot express in words how thankful I am for Tom and his team. It was so wonderful to work with Tom as his communication made the different in my overall experience.
Tom is very trustworthy and I really felt he was always protecting my best interest as his client.
I could not have been more thankful! Be sure that I will recommend his services as I was so pleased with it.
Bryn, Tom, and the OahuRE Team: You did an outstanding job and I want to thank you for everything.
What I liked the most is that everything was done thru emails and quickly.
Also, Tom was always there when I needed. To improve your service: I can't think of anything now.
Everything happened as planned and you were always helpful. Thank you,
We did have a great experience, even though we had to go through the process twice.
From our perspective Tom went out of his way to handle all issues for us as absentee owners.
We also appreciated his follow up and keeping us constantly updated.
In addition, Tom's up front work on pushing the offer price paid off in the end. In the end, we could not be more pleased with the outcome.
I wanted you to know how my experience with Tom & Don went. It was great.
While we didn’t get the price we wanted, all of your staff and associates were so professional and thoughtful.
Tom and of course Don handled the details with class and attention to detail.
I would highly recommend them and will do so at every opportunity I get.
Your MLS search really sets you apart. I found it to be so helpful that I’m really missing it as I look at property on the mainland.
Thank you again and please let your staff know that I appreciate their hard work.
