Kaleo made first time home buying easy. Working with Kaleo from the Aloha Tony team was a great experience. He is a very professional, considerate, and reliable realtor who took the time to explain many aspects of the house buying process and was not pushy. We didn’t know the lay of the land in Hawaii but his expertise in the market allowed us to make an informed home purchase. Since moving into our home, we feel extremely fortunate to have a home for the right price and in a location that fits our lifestyle. We will definitely work with Kaleo and the Aloha Tony team again when we are ready to buy our next home.
Chelsea and Team Aloha Tony were such a great help to us in our move from Germany to Hawaii. Chelsea worked with us closely prior to our move and really understood what we were looking for in a home. She took us house hunting as soon as we landed on the island and worked with us tirelessly to find exactly what we were looking for in the location we wanted. I am so grateful we contacted Team Aloha Tony. They made the process of finding and buying a house smooth and hassle free! I highly recommend them! —
We recently purchased a home and Chelsea was our realtor. She is absolutely amazing, the whole team made the experience of buying our first home super easy! It was such a wonderful experience, everyone at Team Aloha Tony is awesome. You are definitely in good hands. Whether buying a home or selling one Team Aloha Tony is the best way to go. Thanks Chelsea for helping us find our home. 🙂
My husband and I worked with Chelsea to buy our first home. She was incredibly easy to work with and spent several weekends with us (and our sometimes fussy 6 month old) visiting open houses and scheduled viewings. As a military family new to the island, Chelsea answered all of our questions and eased our concerns buying in an unfamiliar market. She was very knowledgeable of VA loans, and put us in touch with a great lender. We had nothing but a great experience and highly recommend working with Chelsea and the Aloha Tony Group.
Tony and Chelsea were amazing to work with! They were great at explaining everything involved in selling our home and communicated promptly throughout the sale. I absolutely recommend working with this excellent team!
Tony and Chelsea have been superb to work with and came highly recommended from a coworker. I in turn have recommended them to a friend. We have found them to be very responsive throughout this whole process. True professionals with an easy bed side manner. They have given us great advice and have aggressively negotiated on our behalf when needed. The value they add isn’t simply in their reduced commissions, they add so much more with their extensive knowledge of the market and their commitment to you when you become their client. If we were to ever need a realtor in the future we would definitely seek out Tony and team aloha!
Simply put…Tony was fabulous. My wife and I took a gamble that many military families are familiar with, we bought a house in a market that we didn’t know. I found Tony through his website while I was deployed. Most of our interaction with Tony took place while we were still on the mainland, we came out ahead of our move for a week of house hunting. I found Tony and his staff to be warm, honest, responsive, and most importantly to me, informed. He leverages technology to reduce many of the burdens associated with the time and distance challenges of doing mainland to Hawaii business. We won’t know for several more years if buying our home was the “right” decision, but we like it, and feel like we went into it wide-eyed due to Tony’s sage counsel. In the real estate business, everyone you talk to has a guy/girl, well from here on out Tony is my guy.
My wife and I searched for an agent to sell our house before we moved to the mainland. We searched the web and Aloha Tony kept coming up as a top realtor so we called him. He was on vacation with his family in the mainland, picked up his phone and talked with us about our home and his services with sincere interest. We were very impressed that he took the time to answer his phone and even followed up with a few emails shortly after. We invited him over to the house and we got to meet him. Tony is warm gentlemen, soft spoken and very intelligent. He was confident that our house would sell fast and gave some detailed tips on staging our home in preparation for showings. Tony had a professional photographer come to the house and took beautiful pictures that showcased our home very nicely. Tony built a strategy around showing the house and creating some excitement by having multiple buyers see the house at the same time. Within 3 days we had our first offer, one day later we received our second offer which was pretty much at asking pricing, 5K under. As Tony promised, we were able to go into escrow within a few days of listing the house. Tony was in touch with us every step of the way and never missed a beat. We were moving to the mainland and was very busy, we really appreciated Tony’s forward communication and proactive thinking to keep us ahead of the game. We closed while we were 3,000 miles away and it felt like Tony was right there with us. Everything closed and our check was deposited, almost too easy. When we searched for an agent, we wanted someone who sold a lot of houses to make this transaction fast and easy. We got that and much much more with Tony. If we ever move back to the islands, Tony will be the first person we call when we need a property. Tony has the local, aloha flair but very professional and focused, sometimes hard to find that combo in Hawaii. Thank you Tony for your great service, you really went over and beyond and won us over as customers and friends We wish you and your business the most success and extend an heartfelt Mahalo Nui Loa for all you did to make my wife and I’s transaction easy and profitable.
Tony has helped my wife and I find a couple homes and both processes were really enjoyable. I’ve worked with other realtors who frankly felt like they were trying to have me just pick a home as quick as I could. Tony’s laid back approach is wonderful. You can see very quickly that he knows the business, the area, and the real value of properties. His advice was great and he always worked to get the best situation for us. Tony is very helpful, caring, and fun to be around. The combination of expertise and great relational ability is a rare thing. Anyone looking for a home should absolutely use him.
My wife and I have known Tony since we moved to Oahu from the mainland in late 2009. Tony helped us find our condo in Kaneohe, and is working with us now to find our dream home in Kailua. We initially chose to work with Tony after interviewing a few other realtors, and we really we’re fortunate to choose him. He is a hard worker, very knowledgable about the market and has a great moral compass- all great attributes for the realty business! We highly recommend Tony and have very much enjoyed working with him. You can’t do any better if you need a great realtor who really cares about finding the best match for your housing needs.
Tony is the best realtor I ever worked with. He’s exactly what Rob B wrote. Plus he’s super nice, honest and understanding. He was there for us every step of the way as well. Every inspection, signing, meetings…everything. The realtor we used a couple of years back (before we knew Tony) did half as much for us.
Tony is absolutely the most professional and personable real estate agent I have ever worked with. He is attentive to every detail, amazingly responsive, and truly cares about finding you the perfect home. I think he was just as excited about finding our new home as we were. That’s when you know you have found someone special. Having a passion for what you do makes all the difference in the world. Tony does not disappoint.
Best home-buying experience ever! EVER!!! This was our second home purchase, and Tony absolutely set the standard for any other real estate transaction in the future… there’s no way I’d use anyone else! He was super patient, he always got back to us lightning-fast to answer any questions we had or show us a home, he listened to what we wanted, and he got us a better deal than we could ever have imagined. To say we were pleased with Tony would be the biggest understatement of the year. He’s amazing! If you could combine the feeling of home-shopping with the feeling of being at the spa, that’s what I’d say it felt like to work with Tony 🙂 He’s the man! Do yourself a favor & let him help you through the biggest purchase of your life. Mahalo, Tony!!!
