"Sean is an exceptional realtor and I cannot give him enough praise. He was very intelligent, knowledgeable, and patient. I believe one of Sean’s greatest assets is his communication. He was assertive with all phone calls, texts, and emails and kept me informed throughout the entire process. He returned all my phone calls promptly. I felt well represented and never questioned that he had my best interest in mind at all times. In my opinion, he is the best of the best and you can be assured that he will represent you with honesty, integrity with an in-depth understanding of the Kauai real estate market. Thank you, Sean!"
"Jim is a true gentleman who treats everyone with patience, dignity, and respect. His knowledge is extensive, and he presents what he knows to the client so that the client is up to date on current real estate affairs. He handles every transaction with the highest level of integrity. Jim will go above and beyond his job description to provide you with the best possible care. Jim would never encourage anyone to list with him or to buy from him unless that person was personally convinced that was their best plan of action. There is never any pressure from Jim. Last but not least he has a keen perception and understanding of how to approach people in a diplomatic fashion. This is an innate skill that is difficult for many to achieve. I cannot recommend Jim too highly."
"We have worked with Sean on five real estate transactions and they have all been pleasantly successful and easy! Sean goes out of his way to handle as many of the details of a transaction, so the client doesn't drown in the minutia, which is especially appreciated when you are an off-island client. Sean knows all of the areas of Kauai and can help you understand the personality of the different areas. He is always prepared to help get you settled into your new place recommending lawn crews, painters, handymen and even running down to the county building to find out information from the planning or water department. He is always very responsive and returns calls and texts in a timely manner. Although he is highly professional, he is also very funny and a pleasure to be around. I would not hesitate to use Sean again in any future real estate transactions I may have on Kauai. Mahalo plenty, Sean."
"We cannot imagine a better representative. Jim is dedicated to the profession, works extremely hard, has outstanding personal skills, and an appreciation for technical details and the local market. Early on, he nurtured a relationship with us to learn our tastes and desires for prospective homes on the north shore of Kauai. Throughout the process, he championed our position in some pretty challenging negotiations with the sellers and their agents. He excelled at listening, presenting the benefits to all parties in favor of moving forward. It was reassuring to learn about his solid training in law, but we were most impressed with his extensive experience in real estate, his people skills, and his desire to best represent our interests. He was very good at managing the expectations of all parties, including ours. He also has excellent relationships with various types of inspectors and repair people. He always entered negotiations with a solid foundation in fact. It was important for us to understand exactly what we would be getting basically a fixer and upper, what it would cost to repair and maintain the property, and why the discount in asking price including our counter offers, already reflected many of these issues. After closing, Jim continued to work with us in arranging repairs of electrical and roof issues. A year afterward, we can conclude with conviction that our purchase was quite a bargain. We continue to stay in touch with Jim. Recently, he voluntarily helped to expertly guide us in negotiations with the state of Hawaii to reduce our initial tax-assessment base by 15% for this real estate. If we ever decide to sell, Jim will get the call."
"We listed our home with Sean, and could not have picked a more professional, or personable agent. He sold our Northshore home in a matter of weeks, not years, as often is the case for selling homes at our price point. His knowledge, calm, and pleasant demeanor are a real asset when selling something as personal as your home. In fact, we repeated customers. Each time, his considerate nature and attention to detail were highly impressive. And most importantly, he delivered the desired results."
"Jim is simply the best. I would work with no other. We had an ongoing relationship for 8 months on the phone before I ever stepped foot in Hawaii to look for homes. He didn't know for sure whether I would buy, yet he educated me on the process, answered every single question I had, sent me free information all the time. Was very dedicated from beginning to end without ever knowing I would be a client for sure. I have rarely seen a person be such a giver, so honest, diligent, and with such integrity. How much I recommend him does not fit into a language."
