There are many things I can say about the high quality of service I provide to home sellers and home buyers, but probably none would be as credible as testimonials from my clients themselves...
Please take a moment to read my clients' testimonials. I am confident they indicate my experience, dedication, and level of integrity, as well as make it clear how much I enjoy helping people with their real estate needs.
What My Clients Have to Say...
Butch and Alana ~ Kauai
"Working with Jamie is such a pleasure! She has great integrity, knowledge and patience. In fact, we enjoyed working with her so much on our purchase, she was our first phone call when we decided to sell. She has a unique ability to convey the exact amount of detail that you need at each stage of the process. While always professional, she is so fun and friendly. Her website is instrumental in providing the most detailed and accurate information out there as you begin your searches. We have recommended her to anyone looking for an outstanding real estate agent, and hope to call upon her again for her expertise. Big Mahalos for all of your help!!"
Wayne & Debi ~ CA & Kauai ~ Kapaa
"I’ve used brokers to buy or sell real estate perhaps a dozen times in my life, and I can say that Jamie’s work was at the very top of that list in terms of intelligence, thoroughness, responsiveness, integrity and patience. She guided us through the thicket of alternatives, helped us identify what we REALLY wanted, never shirked or ducked any responsibilities, and advised us clearly at every step. Jamie’s advice was complete and careful, never pushy, always friendly-yet-professional. I can recommend her without qualification to anyone looking for great representation and advice on Kauai real estate."
Nancy & Scott ~ formerly Colorado, now Kauai
"We reached out to Jamie early in our process of realizing our dream of living in Kauai. For months, Jamie continually provided us with the current real estate options within our budget. While we were on the mainland, Jamie provided us with video tours so we could see the condo we wanted as if we were there on the island. Jamie was there for us every step of the way, and her knowledge and experience became evident throughout the process. We are so thankful we found Jamie to work with for our Kauai real estate needs!"
Kathy D. ~ CA & Kauai ~ Kapaa
"As the co-trustee of my mothers estate, and living in Northern California, it was up to me to find an agent to sell my mother's condo. Jamie was the perfect fit. From beginning to end, and the tiny bumps along the way, Jamie was there to see me through it! Real Estate is very different here in California, and I would highly recommend her to anyone here on the mainland who needs an agent in Kauai. Her sense of humor, calm demeanor, and the ability to make it all seem effortless , makes her the perfect agent. Even if there was a lull, Jamie would still call just to check in and say hi. I found that to be very comforting. I truly believe that I would not have found a better agent to work with."
Tom and Claudia ~ Texas & Kauai ~ Lihue
Aloha Jamie - Thanks for all your help, support for us in Kauai and patience with us and the banking community. You have been great to work with and you built a lot of confidence in the whole process. Lucas is lucky to have great friends like you and we look forward to our next visit. Mahalo!
Walt & Bettina S ~ CA & Kauai ~ Kapaa
"Professionalism personified. I can think of no other way to describe Jamie’s service. Throughout the search, negotiations, and the escrow process Jamie seemed to anticipate our every question and consistently provided timely guidance and assistance. Even when off island Jamie did not miss a beat. The assistance and all required documentation continued in an un-interrupted flow along with reminders which permitted us to remain on the escrow time-line and complete the process as painlessly as possible. I sincerely doubt that any agent could be more dedicated. Mahalo, once again Jamie, for helping us acquire a piece of paradise on the garden island."
Todd S. ~ Oregon & Kauai ~ Lihue
"I am very happy that I got to work with Jamie in purchasing my condo on Kauai. She is that rare broker who combines professionalism with friendliness. She is very knowledgeable, not just about the real estate market and condo prices, but also about rental costs and fees, management companies, and other important incidentals. Jamie got me hard data so I could make comparisons for myself, plus she gave me excellent, sound advice. Finally, she has remained in contact with me, helping to make further decisions about my property, even well after the sale closed. She really went the extra mile for me."
Joanne and Jerry ~ CA & Kauai ~ Kapaa
"It is a great day for us, we have been hoping for a long time we would be able to buy something on Kauai. Sometimes it looked like it would never happen, but we always hoped that something would happen for us and it finally did. We appreciate all the time and energy that you put in on this project for us and when we are on the island spending time in OUR condo we will remember who helped us make our dream come true."
Russ & Julie G. ~ New Jersey & Kaua'i ~ Princeville
"Jamie did a fantastic job of helping us find and purchase the ideal property. Jamie has that special ability to make you feel like you are the most important client in her professional life and we came to trust her implicitly. Although we only met with Jamie for a few hours on one day, we live in New Jersey, it felt as though we had known her for years. Jamie’s knowledge and advice proved to be of great value to us throughout the process and we certainly hope to have Jamie at our side when we do settle on the island and begin our search for our ultimate dream home.”
Mike B. ~ CA and Kauai ~ Princeville
"It's been a pleasure working with you and you are very professional and know what you are doing. I would recommend you to anyone that needs a realtor in Hawaii and will call you if I ever venture back into that market."
Nancy & Robert H, ~ CA and Kauai ~ Princeville
"Jamie, You are first class, professional and exhibit maximum business ethics. Any real estate agent who continues to send information, give details upon request and random house reviews for three years is truly dedicated to her customers and displays it with utmost patience. We love our condo and owe you for finding our dream condo in Kauai. Thanks for everything to make it so special.”
Vic & Laurie C. ~ Napa, CA ~ Lihue
"We truly lucked out having Jamie as our realtor. Although we had limited time on the island, Jamie was able to help us find the perfect property to suit our needs. She made the entire process a positive experience, greatly due to her wealth of knowledge and attention to detail. Never before had and of our real estate transactions gone so smoothly. We will definitely use Jamie again in future transactions.”
Eric & Friday S. ~ Kauai ~ Kalaheo
"Jamie is client-driven and ultra-organized. The process of buying a home in Hawai'i can be a real challenge, but Jamie's expert attention made for a smooth transaction. We consider her our realtor for life! Maybe she can get a license in Italy for our next dream home!"
Maureen & Howard G. ~ FL & Kauai ~ Princeville
"Jamie, I read your glowing testimonials and feel they are well deserved. You are VERY special!! I tried to come up with something left unsaid but it isn't easy. How about Wonder Woman??"
Kelli & Michael ~ CA ~ Lihue
"We enjoyed the type of service Jamie provided because we were physically removed from the transaction essentially. You were our eyes and our ears, there was a sense of security you provided to us by being there. And most importantly, as time drug on, you never wavered, you treated every day as if it were the first day of our listing!"
Stephen A., ~ Kauai ~ Lihue
"I recently purchased a condo on Kauai and the experience was a very good one in great part due to Jamie's work on my behalf. She was patient with me during the search process and her market knowledge helped me make the right choice for my lifestyle and needs. I was very impressed with her professionalism, enthusiasm and follow through during the whole process. I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking to buy or sell property in Hawaii.
Anja and Erich W. ~ Malibu, CA & Kauai ~ Princeville
"We have purchased a number of houses throughout the years, and I can confidently write that Jamie was the specific reason that our house purchase on Kauai was the easiest and best of all our house purchases. She went over the pale in professionalism, efficiency, negotiations, inspections, and paperwork throughout the entire transaction process. Because we didn't live on Kauai during the purchase process, it could have been very difficult to line up all of the inspections, etc...; however, Jamie took care of everything including even attending a home owner's meeting for us.”
Joe M. ~ CA & Kauai ~ Lihue
"You continue to amaze me I know I'm not your biggest client but you make us feel as if we are."
Megan B. & Jacob S. - Kauai ~ Kapaa
"If there was one word to describe working with Jamie, it would be pleasurable. Throughout the time we spent looking to purchase a home, we were met with objective, intelligent, and unbiased professionalism. It was evident that Jamie knew what she was doing and she knew the market. Throughout the buying process she remained at least a step ahead of where we needed to be to insure that we had the best and easiest experience possible. She also had amazing relationships with the people we worked with in the process of buying the house, helping us through a smooth buying process. If buying a house were always this easy, I would probably own 50 homes.”
Robert S. & Ann-Marie B. ~ Big Island
"Jamie worked with us in what turned out to be a year long search (on three islands) in finding our new beautiful home on the Big Island of Hawaii. We were still living in Palm Springs and we needed a confident realtor that we could depend on to represent us for the new home purchase. Jamie went well beyond that even after some "ruff and tumble moments" during the sale of the home with the sellers. Jamie's strong business sense and easy going manner made it a pleasure to work with her , but most importantly it gave us a sense of comfort knowing that she representing us during the purchase of the our home.”
Claire T. ~ CA & Hilo, Big Island
"You are without doubt the most dedicated and professional agent I have worked with. You have a unique ability to make your client feel like they are the only person you are working with. I hope this is the start of a long real estate relationship for us."
Pat W. ~ CA
"You are right on top of things. I really appreciate your responsiveness, but I know it comes from your joy in what you do. This joy is reflected in your high level of productivity, responsiveness, and the general courtesy and consideration that you show to your clients. It is a privilege to work with you. I thank you again."
Russ J. and Vera B. ~ Alaska & Kauai
"We were extremely lucky to have encountered Jamie. She is everything one could ask for in a real estate agent--and more! She has great drive and great patience. She does what needs to be done, she tells you what reality is, and she keeps you informed every step of the way. Maybe most important of all is her thoroughness, coupled with an innate sense of what is right and what doesn't seem right. In our case, her thoroughness and that "sixth sense" helped us avoid a potential major problem and resulted in our purchasing our dream property."

Graciela & Kevin S., Lihue Condo
Aloha Greg and Jamie, Kevin and I want to let you know that we are so very happy with the sale of our condo and extremely grateful for everything that both of you did to make it happen! The showings, the online marketing, your persistence, the suggestions you made, your legwork and brainstorming -- all of your efforts ultimately led to a sale, and we thank you. We also appreciate your professionalism and friendliness; every email exchange and phone call with you was so positive. It was delightful to work with both of you. We highly recommend you to other sellers and to buyers. Again, we're very pleased with the outcome -- thank you! Mahalo and Aloha, Graciela
Elizabeth & John N. ~ CA and Kauai ~ Kapaa
My husband and I worked with Jamie and Greg who help us sell two properties in this challenging market. Jamie and Greg work very well together as a team. They're great communicators and listeners. They were patient, diligent and creative. Even in the most difficult situations they were responsive to all of our requests, no matter how small. Their optimism and perseverance was refreshing and revitalizing. We appreciated their hard work very much.
Sylvia & Alan T ~ Kauai ~ Kapaa
Prior to buying our home, Jamie had kept us up to date with the real estate market for several years. With her informative emails and blog we were able to follow the trends in Kauai and then purchase the home we wanted when the time was right. Through Jamie we met Greg, who dedicated time and effort during our "whirlwind" shopping trips to the island. Greg listened to our story, got to know our family and our needs, and with time and infinite patience helped us find the perfect home for us. I think he understood what we were looking for even before we knew it for ourselves.
As an off-island resident, we relied heavily on Greg and Jamie's excellent communication skills. They were available via fax, internet, cell and home phone for the myriad of questions and tasks that accompany the selection and purchase of a home. Greg and Jamie were our eyes and ears for us, even putting up a panoramic showing of our house on the internet when we were unable to personally view the house. They also represented us strongly in our negotiations with the seller, and helped us navigate through the local nuances in Kauai real estate."
