It has been such a pleasure to work with you these past few months. This particular real estate experience has been something new for us, helping our son find a place for his first home in Maui. It was unusual for us to be across the ocean giving advice and seeing potential homes via FaceTime. He went with only his laptop and one bag. No matter the age of the child a mother can feel protective and worried about so many things when a child leaves the familiarity of their home state and their family. Add on a pandemic and one can really worry.
From the initial introduction by phone, I knew you were the right person to help him fulfill his island dream and watch over him during the process. There is so much to consider being a first time buyer, and I had confidence that you would share your knowledge with him and help him make the right decision. We really appreciated your attention to every detail during the process.
We all had many questions for you and you came through every time with information, explanations and precision. We appreciated your troubleshooting when a few small things came up. You had knowledge and referrals to help us through the process to a solution each time. I could fill a whole page with how wonderful you were during the entire process. Not only were you technically knowledgable but you added a calming reassurance to any worry we may have had.
Monica, you were exactly what we desired in a Realtor for this search and transaction. You helped to make it efficient, productive and pleasant. Our son has moved into the most lovely home and is making his Maui dreams come true. He walks to the beach daily and sends me a picture of sunrise or sunset, sometimes both. My only regret is that I am not there to share it every day!

How An Emotional Support Cat Became An Important Part Of A Wailea Condo Sale
His name is Simba. Apparently he had a different name when he was first adopted from the Maui Humane Society in October 2019. But Simba only spent a few days over there. He wasn't more then a handful - a little kitten when I had a chance to meet him first at my client's Wailea condo. And if you've ever seen or dealt with one of these little guys, you'd understand. Of course I fell in love. And so...
