Ayumi went above and beyond for my remote buy.

She was helpful and communicative throughout the whole process, always going out of her way to answer my questions or find information for me. Ayumi helped out with deadlines, and paperwork, and acted as my proxy for in-person checks. I feel extremely lucky to have had her as my agent and highly recommend working with her!

Kelly Feng

Maria and Johanna Delacruz were phenomenal throughout the entire process of selling our home!

From working our price and understanding the market, while facing challenges of increased interest rates and buyers being priced out of the market, we were able to work towards a solution even when my faith in the market was wavering. Their positive attitude and actions of going out of their way to ensure our house was ready to go while we were out of state really helped see us through! Would not work with any other team because of them!

Jo Ann Wilson was an absolute pleasure to work with!

Although the process was challenging at times, she was very patient and understanding with me and her persistence in finding me a suitable home was evident through her efforts in this entire journey! Ms. Wilson definitely represented my best interests and I am truly blessed to have landed an agent with such a wealth of experience in the real estate industry. I will definitely recommend Ms. Wilson to any potential homebuyers I cross paths with!

Levy Tuiala

Punahele and Berkshire Hathaway have been amazing through the home-buying process.

She was supportive, caring, knowledgeable, extremely proficient, very professional, and very prompt in keeping with our timeline. She even went above and beyond to call our lenders to check on the status of the loan process to keep them on the timeline. Their concierge home-buying services were second to none keeping us on schedule with regard to the buying process. Punahele made us feel at ease, and comfortable, and helped us feel confident every step of the way treating us like Ohana! Thank you Punahele and Berkshire Hathaway Team, we love you all!

Crystal Maramba

Ciel's professionalism and knowledge were on display at every phase of my house being sold.

She analyzed comps and came up with a great price for my house which sold very quickly. She was instrumental in getting my house ready to sell ensuring its cleanliness and that it was beautifully staged. Her attention to detail during the paperwork, phase was truly above and beyond. I would recommend Ciel to any family needing to sell their home. Can't thank her enough!!

Catherine Caudle

I never believed it works this way, I was very doubtful about Bitcoin and all other online trading, I decided to risk an investment with Mrs Rochelle Nelson, and i successfully made withdrawal in a week.

after I saw testimonies of people on how good she is but I was very skeptical but she prove me wrong with my first trade and I'm so happy today, so I'm recommending her to everyone of you to invest with her and testify like me. Contact her now on Email: WhatsApp: +16267909787

Punahele is awesome.

She listened to us and what we were looking for. It took us 2 years to get to where we are now. She did not give us on and help us through everything. She is very understanding and patient especially since we always have to bring our kids. We can’t thank her enough. She’s amazing

Maria Calub

I wanted to take a moment to express my deepest gratitude for Mariane "Yan" Yadao's exceptional support and guidance throughout the entire process of purchasing my new home.

From the moment we began this journey to the final steps of closing, her expertise and dedication were invaluable. Her commitment to finding the perfect home for me, along with her professionalism and attention to detail, made the entire experience smooth and enjoyable. I truly appreciate all the hard work and effort Yan put into making this possible. Thank you once again for your outstanding service. Her knowledge and passion for real estate have made a significant difference in this important chapter of my life.

Mariane is an awesome real estate agent.

She made the process easy to understand for us. We appreciated so much her patience and expertise. Without her, I don’t think we could have done this. Thank you Marianne for your time and effort in helping us to buy our home!

Arnel Semanero

Hillary was a pleasure to work with - professional yet personal; a great combination for an excellent real estate experience from putting the offer together and everything else needed to get to closing!

I highly recommend her for all of your real estate needs. She will not disappoint!!


Sheral has truly gone above and beyond as our real estate agent.

It was our first time buying a property, so we had many questions and concerns. But Sheral speedily addressed all of them. She also did a lot of research and investigation to make sure we get a good deal. We highly recommend you hire Sheral as your real estate agent.

Luke Horger and Erina Kudo

Maria and Johanna, along with the whole team, helped us tremendously throughout the process.

No surprise because this is our second time going with them. We’ll definitely recommend them.

JoAnn Wilson, our real estate agent is very hardworking, diligent, knowledgeable, and has a lot of patience for her clients. Kudos to her, she’s a big asset to your company.

Reynaldo Magno Mendoza

I have worked with numerous realtors over the years, some good and some not-so-good.

Hillary was not just good....she was AMAZING!! Hillary helped me sell my current condo and purchase a new place without me even being there on the island (due to Covid). She facilitated moving all my belongings, vehicles, etc. She even staged and cleaned my old place. Those were just a few of the things where she went way above and beyond. She simply just gets things done!!!! I could not have made this work without her!!!! I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone needing to sell or purchase a home!

James Bowers

Maria and Johanna were very attentive and helpful.

This is our second time working with them. She’s empathetic with our concerns and guides us through the whole buying process. Definitely would work with them again and is highly recommended. 

Joanne P. Villanueva

Maria has been our real estate agent for a while now.

She always goes above and beyond. She’s always on top of her job. Very reliable. Excellent job!

Derick and Che

Cheryl has helped me both buy and sell a home and she’s the best realtor we’ve ever worked with.

She is very communicative, stays on top of things to ensure no deadlines are missed, and always advocates wholeheartedly for her client. Could not recommend her more!

Jessica & Andrew Barbosa

Very professional, timely execution!

Valentin Bigornia

I want to say fantastic work to the very best Mariane “Yan” Yadao!

If you are looking for a great agent, I highly recommend her. I personally think that Yan is the perfect person for this job! She was very knowledgeable, supportive, and trustworthy. We enjoyed searching for houses with you. We appreciate that you took us to so many as seeing the houses in person helped us make our decision. Thank you for going the extra mile for us. We could not have done this without you, and we are so grateful for your assistance, patience, and expertise.

Jane Logan

We are honored to have worked with Ayumi Kim for our home purchase!

She is a very competent, prompt, and friendly real estate agent who made our remote home purchase stress-free. Ayumi did an excellent job at providing anything we needed for our purchase (i.e., video conference calls, measurements, vendor estimates), streamlining our offer submission and purchase process. Despite our 4-hour difference in time zone, she was always available and coordinated with the appropriate parties to deliver timely actions and answers to our inquiries. We greatly appreciate Ayumi and thank her for making our home purchase process a pleasant experience!

Maria and Johanna were great!

They kept us engaged when the market was changing and kept us in good spirits while communicating regularly any and all updates on matters pertaining to our home and sale.

Evanee Bucao Patricio

Outstanding Experience from beginning to end!

! Extremely Happy and Extremely Satisfied.

Carmela M. Constantino Trustee

I could not have asked for a better agent to work with when I was buying.

Sheral was warm, professional and supportive in every way. Her skill and knowledge is extensive. She went above and beyond to ensure the process of my purchasing was clear, efficient, and successful. I highly recommend Sheral's services!

Isira Sananda

I've worked with a lot of real estate agents, and Ayumi is the best one of them.

She was able to sell a unit that my previous agent could not sell for a year. The unit had some issues and Ayumi was able to resolve them all in a timely manner. Her staging was also great. Thank you, Ayumi!!

Eunice Yunhee Choe

This was our first time selling a house that was held in a trust with multiple trustees which made things more of a challenge; however, Punahele was there for me every step of the way to guide and inform me but also let me make my own decisions.

Thank you Punahele, you're awesome!

Ayumi has been very patient, helpful, and thorough in helping me find my perfect home.

Her great service and knowledge in this field allowed me to make better decisions in buying my home. I’m fortunate to have her as my realtor. Ayumi, thank you so much!

Ana Pasion

Cheryl Anderson was instrumental in the quick sale of our Makakilo home.

Her approach and attention to detail enabled us to sell our home in a shorter duration than others during this slowdown in the housing market. She went above a beyond the call of duty and helped us when we needed help repeatedly without hesitation. We could not have sold this home without Cheryl. She is by far the best realtor that we have worked with in Hawaii and in Washington State.

Steven & Debbie Bose

This is a letter of recommendation for Sheryl Graham.

We were interested in a piece of raw land in Puna. We contacted several agents in Puna, none of whom were helpful. Then we asked Sheral for help, and the difference was amazing. Sheral Graham to be honest, competent, professional, knowledgeable, experienced, responsive, well-connected, and persistent. She streamlined a complex process, identified speed bumps, and cleared bottle-necks like a snow plow. She saved us time and money. There was never any doubt that she was in our corner. When it is time to sell our condo, Sheral will represent us. We can recommend Sheral Graham without reservation. She rocks.

Brian Frederick & Tara Severns

This is the second time we’ve worked with Ayumi.

She’s so strong-minded, hard-working, and knowledgeable in her career. She made a very anxiety-filled time, very easy. We honestly felt very blessed to have had the opportunity to work with her. Made a lifelong friend for sure. We love Ayumi!

Kalia Kaui

Judy Hoppel was a pleasure to work with.

She has a keen understanding of the process, as well as our needs. She was continually available to answer any and all questions that we had and went above, and beyond what we expected any real estate agent to be. We would recommend Judy highly.

Frank Leroy Figueroa Jr. & April Angel Figueroa

Ayumi was GREAT.

She’s very knowledgeable about the whole process and was supportive throughout my home buying and selling journey. I recommend her to everyone now!

Stacie J.W. Nomura Urabe

Punahele was great to work with.

She understood my desire for a new home and did an excellent job communicating with all parties involved. This is my first experience in buying a home and Punahele was a great help from start to finish.

Kristy Casaus

Excellent job

Frederick Polendey

Maria Dela Cruz was phenomenal throughout our entire process of selling our home!

From working our price and understanding the market, while facing challenges of increased interest rates and buyers being priced out of the market, we were able to work towards a solution even when my faith in the market was wavering. Their positive attitude and actions of going out of their way to ensure our house was ready to go while we were out of state really helped see us through! Would not work with any other team because of them!


Ayumi was the best real estate agent we could have asked for.

Highly recommended for any new home buyers!

Brandon Rivera

Mariane was ALWAYS available for home tours.

Their responsiveness was incredible. If they didn’t pick up, they always called back no longer than 5 minutes later. Seriously. I purchased an apartment/condo so it wasn’t a straightforward deal. They told me that going in and highlighting the concerns they had and the research they wanted to do to make sure progress was being made and I wouldn’t have to wait for a long time to move in.

Glenmore Monta

Since we are not acquainted with a real agent in Hawaii, Sheral became the agent for both the seller and the buyers.

Since we are the buyers and just met Sheral with this transaction, we are a bit uneasy at first due to the fact that her fiduciary role is with us. I expressed that to Sheral and I was assured that she will give her undivided attention to both seller and buyers. Sheral was there for us to clarify/verify questions, she has arranged and worked on issues that are important to us. Sheral has truly been a help in Rob's and my understanding of this real estate transaction. She has continually gone beyond the norm in satisfying our questions and requests. We plan to keep this relationship current and recommend her to other individuals that may need an honest and hard-working voice for their real estate needs.

Rob and Edith Engleman

Our Aloha Agent, Chothika "Mai Tai" Mekonnen, was awesome!

High praises for our homebuying journey and process with her!

Gabriel Nino Alquero Torno Jr

I cannot speak highly enough of my experience with Daniel Kamada and Christopher Blue.

From the moment we contacted them, my husband and I knew that we were in good hands. Their professionalism, knowledge of the market, and dedication to getting us the perfect home were evident every step of the way. Daniel and Christopher took the time to understand our needs and preferences. They went ABOVE and BEYOND and left no stone unturned. They were always available to answer our questions day or night. They truly had our best interests at heart. We cannot thank Daniel and Christopher enough for their hard work and commitment. We will 100% contact them again for future needs and will proactively recommend them to friends and family. To anyone in search of a dedicated and knowledgeable real estate team in Oahu, if you want to have a great home-buying experience, then look no further… Once again, we truly appreciate you, Daniel and Christopher!
