We’re so incredibly grateful to have had Kimi’s gentle guidance through this process; we never felt pressured, and when she could sense that we were a bit overwhelmed or getting ahead of ourselves, she’d carefully offer wise perspective to help us feel balanced and informed in our decision-making. Consider yourself extremely lucky to have her in your corner!! We’re SO GLAD our friends recommended we reach out to you, Kimi!!!!
Kimi is very professional, she takes pride in what she presents for sellers and to buyers. Our home sold within a few hours of being listed, the photos she has taken of your home as a seller is a HUGE deal. She is always helpful when questions need answering and can deal with stressful individuals beautifully. I highly recommend Kimi Hammonds for anyone’s home buying or selling needs.
He was reasonable and factual in his explanation. Without his input, I probably would not have purchased the condo. I am very happy with my purchase.
This is our 3rd transaction ( twice as sellers and once as a buyer) and have always found him to be very knowledgeable, professional and helpful. He’s never pressured us or hurried us into any actions. He returns phone calls and texts quickly and was able to connect us with the local resources we needed. We’ve recommended him to many of our local friends. His years of experience in real estate on the Big Island is invaluable!
She kept us on track and helped us tremendously in finding the services and professionals we needed to make repairs to the home in the timeline we were under. She brought us a buyer quickly and at a great price. Cindy knows her business, she is professional and keeps her cool under pressure -all the traits you want in a great realtor.
She was constantly on top of everything that needed to be taken care of, especially with the sellers moving up the closing date. Great personality & always ready to answer any question we had, which we had a lot, since we were first time home buyers. Thank you so much for all your help Cindy! We love our home!
We met Mike through friends and he has met our every need. He has helped us over the past 2 years find our second home on the Big Island. Mike's knowledge of the real estate market and nuances of the various communities in Mauna Lani Resort were unparalleled. He was always patient with us and knew exactly what we wanted. Despite living on the mainland, he kept in touch with us regularly and we were ready when the right home became available. We could not have done it without Mike and he helped make our Hawaii dream come true!!
She has been very patient and kind.
Even after we closed, Gerry continues to keep in touch, ensuring our new home will be clean and that transitioning services over like gardening and pest control happens without any interruptions. We’ve really enjoyed the interactive nature of this experience, and would highly recommend Gerry.
The market was difficult for our unit he listed and he had it under contract in less than a month I could not be more happy how things went especially being off island and the challenges associated with travel out there currently.
Very knowledgeable about the whole transaction. Her guidance throughout was greatly appreciated. Highly recommend her services.
He just helped us close on a condo in Kona. Penn has our most enthusiastic recommendation. Like many buyers, we had to conduct all of our business from the mainland. Before we visited the big island in September, we scheduled a meeting with Penn. When we arrived in his office, he showed us a dossier full of properties matching our interests and price range. We spent the better part of an afternoon touring various areas in and around Kona. With the benefit of Penn’s expert knowledge of both the territory and the housing market, we were able to get a good idea of what kind of property we would be looking for, and where. Once we returned home, Penn started sending us new listings in West Hawaii. In the fall it was still too early for us to buy, but we learned a great deal by checking these listings and asking questions. Penn was always ready to give us full and candid answers. In January we got more serious about buying in Kona. When we asked about properties we were considering making an offer on, Penn would take the time to make thorough, informative videos for us. These weren’t always rave reviews; every now and then, he would essentially have to talk us out of making an offer based upon what we were seeing. In the first two months of the year we made several offers, and missed out on the first properties we had bid upon. Although we would get discouraged at times, Penn just kept looking, assuring us that we’d eventually find the place we were seeking. He never gave up or got impatient; he just kept on working hard and writing well-crafted offers until we finally got one accepted at the beginning of March. Escrow just closed this week, and we owe it all to Penn. Are you looking for a realtor to help you find a place in West Hawaii? You really can’t do better than Penn Henderson. He is simply the best there is. Mahalo, Penn!
Kimi was very professional and we never doubted that she had our best interests in mind during the entire process. I would recommend Kimi to anyone as my first choice of real estate agents on the island of Hawaii.
He took videos of many places that were of interest to us, helping us separate the ones that looked good on paper from the real gems. We ended up putting in 6 offers before we were able to get one accepted. And then we really got to see Mike and his team shine. The entire process was amazingly smooth. Mike was able to refer great contractors for inspection, surveys, title, and lenders. He put together an electronic timeline that tracked all of the dates and everything went according to plan. And, as importantly, we knew exactly what was going on each week through closing. This was the smoothest transaction we have had - and I highly recommend Mike and his team.
You were always prompt to respond to our many questions. You went above and beyond at taking care of things with the house since we were absentee sellers.
Despite the housing market being intense right now, the process just flowed along and we closed early!
Her communication with me was professional and timely as was her follow-up. Great experience.
He made several trips to ocean view for me just for a small transaction. I would highly recommend him for all your real estate needs on the big island.
I truly appreciate how Mike lays out all the information available and supports whatever decision we make while continuing to offer guidance along the way. He has a way of meeting our needs and educating us each time we go through the process either as buyers or sellers. There is a reason we keep working with Mike and that reason is each adventure we have success. The next time we are buying on the west side, we are working with Mike again! Thanks Mike! You are awesome!
He made the sale super easy on us. All the paperwork was handled very quickly and effeciently. He is a joy to work with and he really knows his stuff. He spent a lot of time explaining things step by step, and took all of our calls quickly. It was a pleasure and a blessing to work with him.
Would recommend her service.
First day we met, we found our home and offered that night. He was honest, professional, responsive, personable, and knowledgeable. Everything went so smooth and fast. He accommodated our busy schedule and met us super early in the morning from Kona. He went above and beyond for our sales and highly recommend this guy to anyone who wants to buy or sell houses.
Would definitely recommend! Now the hard part, packing!
A pleasure to work with. I recommend without reservation.
He is very knowledgeable about the neighborhoods, the process and the market. He smoothly navigated me through the sales process and helped me successfully negotiate with the seller to get a good deal we both liked. He understands property investment, anticipates needs and uses modern tools like DocuSign to make the process quick and efficient. I highly recommend Mike to anyone buying or selling a property on Hawaii Island.
She has been in the real estate business many years and knows it inside and out. We would highly recommend her!
I strongly recommend Cindy! We were in the market for a home in West Hawaii and by golly, she found exactly what we were looking for and we are now enjoying the beautiful Kona Sunsets!
She went over each step of the process clearly and was super patient with any issues that came up. Excellent communication. Highly recommended, she is awesome!
She helped guide this first-time seller through the crazy process of selling a condo in a really hot market. Stacy listened to me and didn't pressure me to pick the highest bid. I'm glad I listened to her advice about paying for a partial staging. My place looked incredible and my place ended up selling for over asking price. I highly recommend Stacy. She is knowledgeable and fun to work with!
They alleviated all my anxiety and demonstrated a professional determination to fulfill my real estate dreams. If you are seeking an individual with vast local knowledge and resources you have found them! Please let Penn go to work for you today.
He's smart, honest, hard working, even-tempered, clear, organized. I've used him for every real estate transaction I've done in Kona and cannot recommend him highly enough. Every single purchase or sale has been effortless on my part. He's fabulous.
He made this so easy for us, communicating with us was top notch, we always knew what was going on. Bill and Gail
We started out with zero contacts, and I decided to give Mike a call based on his positive online reviews. He did not disappoint. From the start, Mike stayed on top of things for us, even arranging a showing on short notice the day before we had to fly back. He encouraged us through some initial disappointments and tried to anticipate problems throughout the process, contacting us right away with any signs of trouble. We felt that Mike was honest and unbiased in setting expectations and helping us find properties that suited our needs. With his help, we ended up with a great house and completed our move in slightly over 3 months despite a difficult real estate market. I would highly recommend Mike to anyone looking for a place on the Big Island!
I definitely recommend Kimi, she is professional and will watch out for your Best Interest all the way from start to finish. Kimi also has qualities that I personally look for in a realtor, is professional, but also a caring person and takes interest in her clients. Kimi Hammonds is an 'Excellent' realtor and Kimi will do right by you.
Mike is very professional and knowledgeable about the market in Kona and the surrounding areas. He just knows what he's doing when it comes to selling someone's home in these more complex times for real estate that we're living through at the moment.
He was so professional an knowledgeable on local procedures and went up and beyond to keep me informed. He meant my goals even in the “market place madness “. Overall a great agent that I would highly recommend to anyone looking to buy or sell on the Big Island of Hawaii. Penn is definitely a 5 Star Realtor. Thank you
He knows the ins and outs of real-estate that other realtors have little knowledge of. We closed in 30 days exactly, which is rare for Hawaii. He is always available to speak with, and will send you an email the moment a new property comes on the market in the area your interested in. He will even do a video walkthrough of any property you are interested in but don't have the time to see. I would highly recommend him and would use him again.
Thanks for always being quick tor respond and available to answer any questions! We are so happy we found our fmdream home and went with Kimi Hammonds!
We purchased a primary home for our retirement through him without even having to see it in person. As a substantial investment and to purchase something from afar, we needed someone who not only we could trust but who also genuinely cared and understood what we wanted. Penn worked with us all along the way. He took the time to understand what we were interested in and was diligent in highlighting properties to us that would fit our needs. His video walkthroughs were excellent. He gave great commentary on the interior, exterior, and the neighborhood, pointing out the good points and those areas that may need attention. He has great local knowledge and insight. He is sincere and candid, and really wanted to provide us with as much information to make sure we were comfortable with the property before making any offers. The transaction went smoothly, and he was very prompt and up to date on anything that needed to be taken care of on our end, such as inspection signoffs, etc. There is nothing we could say about him that would improve or enhance his help to us, he is the complete package. And lastly his two assistants (his two young sons) that appeared in the background of many of the video walkthroughs added a great human feel to the videos. Thank you Penn.
Penn's most recent transaction required a ton of research, but in the end, that research presented an incredible opportunity (to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars in instant equity) for his client. All 900 agents in this market saw this property and saw the red flags, but Penn was the only one to do the work and see that those red flags were not really there! Truly an amazing job.
The communication was on point and Mike answered all calls and texts in a timely matter. Every question was answered and assisted in providing quality guidance and recommendations when requested. Closed on our first home purchase within the set deadline. Highly recommended and very professional throughout the entire experience. Wouldn’t work with anyone else on the big island.
She knows the island market well and was able to show me many properties that would be a good fit for me. She communicated well and facilitated the information that I needed to know buying property on the Islands. Very helpful!
He was readily available by phone or email with any questions that we had. He is knowledgeable of the local market and provided us with appropriate recommendations as we went through this purchase.
We highly recommend him!
Both were great to work with. They know the market well, were patient in our property search, on top of the many details and deadlines during the offer and acceptance process, engaged during escrow addressing any concerns. From house hunt to closing, it was a very positive experience.
He's smart, honest, hard working, even-tempered, clear, organized. I've used him for every real estate transaction I've done in Kona and cannot recommend him highly enough. Every single purchase or sale has been effortless on my part. He's fabulous.
The listing was fantastic & made for a quick sale. Her expertise was evident as we had a very smooth sale & close. Would highly recommend for anyone selling their home!
! She was extremely helpful, supportive and accommodating, not to mention clocking countless hours of driving to check out houses with us both remotely via FaceTime as well as in person. Her friendly and positive demeanor is a definite bonus in addition to her professional attitude and diligence. We highly recommend Cindy to provide you with outstanding service and plenty aloha!!
!! Much appreciated Mahalo !!!
Gerry provided the hand holding I required to get through selling a home in the 21st century. Both my wife and I were "wowed" with the photos' posted showing our home. There was an emphasis placed on decluttering our home for the photos. Now we are on the buyer side and my wife, and I have a contest to find the most cluttered home on the market in New Mexico where we are leaving the Aloha State to live. My only regret in working with Gerry was that she cannot hold my hand through the purchase of a new home in New Mexico. Come on Gerry get a New Mexico real estate License! Mahalo for your patience, Tony & Sally
From my first phone call with Kimi, I felt comfortable, trusting and peace of mind. She guided us in the process in purchasing our new home, from start to closing. Even when our first lender drop the ball on us, causing us to change lender. Kimi and her company was a big part of finding us a better, more experience lender. Kimi, we Thank you for helping our Family. The Quiocho's
She’s sharp as a tack, direct and honest. I trust her judgement completely. I’ve worked with her as both a buyer and a seller with excellent results each time. Tanya’s extensive knowledge of the real estate market on the Big Island is a huge asset both for negotiating price and finding that perfect home. She knows how to drive a transaction from beginning to end and easily navigates the barriers that often arise in Hawaii real estate deals. She has a terrific ability to hone in on her clients’ priorities and match them with the perfect property. She found us our dream home, navigated a very complex closing due to decades-old title defects, and managed to get the deal closed on schedule. She sold a lot for us that could’ve sat in the market for years, but she knew how to connect the right people with the right properties. She does this all with a smile and a quick phone call to the right person. I highly recommend Tanya for anyone looking for an agent.
We appreciated the fact that she was very prompt in responding to any and all questions/concerns we had throughout the process.
She not only staged 1 of our homes but had professional photographs taken to better show case its beauty. Gerry is the person to contact when buying or selling in the Kailua Kona, Hawaii area..... quick, efficient, knowledgeable, friendly, courteous, informative during all aspects of the transaction........ all the things needed to be stress and worry free. Thank you Gerry for all you did on the sales of our properties this past summer and fall. Appreciate it all from start to finish.
!!! Always willing to answer questions right away, available for showings quickly, great communication and walked me thru all the steps as a first time home buyer. Would recommend her to any friends or family! The best!
We had very specific requirements and he didn't waste our time with properties that didn't meet our requirements. After finding the perfect match his service went above and beyond expectations including detailed videos and incredible service throughout the process. I highly recommend him and his team of professionals.
Mike called me to understand what we were looking for and provided location options to consider. While on the mainland, Mike worked with us and even took videos (virtual showings) for us so we could easily view on YouTube. Since we were not from Hawaii, he helped us navigate and select our lender to get us prequalified. When we selected the home, Mike provided us with comps, and property information in order for us to submit a competitive offer. After the offer was excepted he walked us through the entire sales process. He’s a great resource even after our closing and continues to be a resource on everything the Big Island has to offer. We highly recommended Mike, he was beyond our expectations!
With Mike’s help, I found and closed on the home I was looking for in just 45 days. You will not be disappointed with Mike.
He made himself available to answer our numerous questions . Thanks for shooting fabulous videos so we could shop from home! Highly recommend Mike!
He was a great guide to help us get the property which suited our needs and paid attention to every detail along the way. I highly recommend him.
When we finally got an offer accepted, her professionalism shined all the way to closing. She will definitely make others feel secure and confident that their goals will be met with Cindy's help. Thank You Cindy!!!
She is very knowledgeable as a realtor. The beautiful photos and video of our home that she arranged to have done were stunning and, no doubt, contributed to our quick sale. Kimi was always accessible and quick to respond to our questions, and as first time home sellers, there were many. Not only was she accessible to us, she was accessible to potential buyers and made herself available to show our home on their schedules, not her's. As a result, we sold our house within a week of listing. She walked us through the whole process of selling our home, from listing to the closing of escrow. Once in escrow, she provided us with a timeline calendar of deadlines. I thought we would be the ones responsible for scheduling the various inspections and ordering of documents, but she handled everything. She is very professional and takes pride in how she represents us and our home sale. She had our best interest in mind throughout the whole process. I appreciate Kimi's hard work and dedication to selling our home and would highly recommend her to anyone selling or buying a house.
He helped us navigate a very crazy market and we are extremely happy homeowners now. Mike really seems to love his job~ We are inexperienced home buyers and he answered our many questions and provided information that we didn't ask for or know that we needed. He took good care of us and I would recommend him over and over!
Keeping us informed on new postings and taking the time to show us the many properties we were interested in. Kept us informed on all the dates we needed to remember through the closing process. We highly recommend Cindy as a Real Estate Professional. A true friend!
Her communication was excellent and she was very willing to research and answer any questions that I had.
Extensive knowledge of all things realty and then some. Kimi was available when we needed her and was very timely and considerate with her responses. She did an excellent job of getting to know our family and this helped us realize a wonderful home.
Her years of experience has made her extremely knowledgable and she is wise beyond her years. Can't go wrong with that combination. In fact, we were so happy with the way she represented us in the purchase of our new home, that we then hired her to sell our other home. The sale went so fast and smoothly that we felt virtually NONE of the stress that is often experienced when going through the plethora of issues associated with selling a property. My wife and I feel blessed to have someone like Kate in our lives.
His videos were so detailed and informative; we felt we had walked through the home ourselves. Mike understands the Kona market and was quick to respond. When a home came on the market that fit our requests, Mike sent us a video within hours. We were able to submit an offer that evening, which was accepted in less than 24 hours of the house being on the market. Mike was helpful not only through the closing process, but also a great resource even after closing.
She certainly went “above and beyond” duty! I really appreciate her vast knowledge and her amazing work ethic. Will certainly call her when I have another real estate transaction and will highly recommend her to others.
He is knowledgeable, professional, ethical, with marketing savvy few agents anywhere possess. He is the calm pro you want in any real estate situation. Mahalo nui loa Mike for a job well done!
She gives great advice, listens empathetically, and is always focused on what’s best for the client. She is a pleasure to work with, and an invaluable ally in navigating real estate deals in Hawaii.
He was wonderful to work with throughout the whole process. He worked well beyond what one could expect! He even rolled up his sleeves & assisted me in preparing the condo for marketing & highlight the beauty of our property. It just blew me away! The best part of the entire experience he was able to get several full price offers & 2 above the asking price in a matter of 2 days in the market! His professionalism, knowledge, honesty, hard work & integrity paid off! I highly recommend & entrusting Penn with any of your future Realtor needs. I wish him continued success! Thanks Penn and God bless you!
Everything went smoothly. Highly recommended.
He is excellent at his profession.He is very knowledgeable of the market and straight forward. It’s by luck I found him. I would highly recommend Mike for all your real estate needs
He was prompt and professional. I felt Mike represented us extremely well. I highly recommend him. Travis Fuqua
She went above and beyond with zoom meetings, helping find a surveyor, and dealing with the time zone (5 to 6 hours difference). If you have a need for an amazing realtor, Stacy Spilman should be your choice.
He helped us find our dream condo, a truly spectacular ocean-front property. He persevered, was readily available, and uniformly professional. I give him my highest recommendation!
Professional, knowledgeable and responsive. I would not hesitate in recommending Mike for your real estate needs. Aloha!
