MAHALOS...

Dear Michele, Mahalo nui loa for helping to make our Maui dream come true. From our first conversation with you, we were impressed with your knowledge of all things Maui. You quickly understood our priorities and matched us with a great list of viable properties. As you led us through the journey from looking at properties to making an offer, we appreciated your balanced approach of being patient while we deliberated with just the right amount of contact to keep us on track. Your help during the closing process was indispensable since we were off island. With your amazing attention to detail, we could relax, knowing you'd make sure all steps were completed property and on time.  Buying a Maui home was a huge step for us and your expertise and guidance gave us the confidence we needed.  Again, mahalo for all you did to help us realize our dream.  Dale & Jenna Krisher, Wake Forest, NC

We want to thank you Michele for getting our home sold for us.

We contracted Michele and right away we knew she is an expert in her field. After our initial meeting and making extensive notes, she quickly completed a market analysis and provided sound marketing and pricing recommendations based on the latest market data.

Once our home was listed, Michele worked around the clock on our behalf. We had showings right away and within 2 weeks of listing we had offers on the home. We quickly sold our house at the highest and best offer possible from the buyers.

Anyone thinking of selling your home really should consider Michele. She is a consummate professional who provides the highest level of customer service for her clients. Mahalo Michele for your excellent work!
Rob Hoonan & Family

Aloha Michele,

We just wanted to take this opportunity to express our gratitude for your professional, attentive and expert assistance in the selling of our Maui home. The fact that we had an offer in three days is still unbelievable, but I know, due to your careful planning and attention to detail. The "virtual tour" really made a tremendous difference. You were there for us through all the stages of our sale and move to California. We will always remember you and your great service, patience and expertise.

Please come visit us in our new Brentwood home soon.

Your friends and ex-neighbors,
Ruth and Dave Costa

Dear Michele,
I so appreciated all your help and expertise with selling my Maui condo. After my husband died I was on my own to reduce my real estate assets. We had been working with another agent for 8 months without success, and I felt I needed someone different. Michele was the perfect agent for me...I knew it almost immediately, but over the course of my listing I was more and more certain...and
impressed! She is everything you would like a real estate agent to be. She works hard and is very communicative. Michele is knowledgeable, capable, ethical, insightful, and friendly. But her best attribute was her optimism, positivity, and cheerfulness. I would highly recommend Michele to anyone buying or selling Maui real estate and if needed, I would utilize her services again!
Mahalo for all of your help,
Nora Linscott

Aloha Michele,

A big Mahalo for a great job on the purchase of our condo, you were terrific! As a former Real Estate agent, I would highly recommend you to my family & friends. You are professional, courteous and returned my phone calls promptly. I appreciated your advice and found you very knowledgeable. Your time schedules with escrow and the inspections was well detailed and I appreciated your reminder calls to keep everything on track to close. A good agent makes all the difference and you are definitely a great agent!

 A BIG MAHALO,
VAL HOWARD

Hi Michele –

It has been a very great pleasure working with you to acquire our new condo home on Maui. From the initial consultation discussions to the final close of escrow you have provided all of the service and support that we needed – and more!

In particular, and given our circumstances living abroad, we really appreciated your:
• In-depth knowledge of the various areas and properties on Maui
• insightful advice on multiple topics
• consistently prompt and courteous communications
• willingness to go the extra mile, and provide additional service and support
• flexibility in working with us even as we were half a world and 11 time zones away

We have been very comfortable working with you, even entirely from remote locations, and are looking forward to years of enjoyment in our new property. We will without reservation recommend you whole-heartedly to friends & family and to any who may be looking for Hawaii property.

Best regards from Scotland and many thanks !
Bob, Susan, Jennifer and Kate

Michele, I just wanted to reiterate my thanks for all of your help in finding my  condo. Your insider's knowledge of the various properties around the island was extremely valuable, and the fact that you quickly picked up on my likes and dislikes was very helpful to me as an out of towner. I really couldn't have done it without your professionalism and good advice. I will be referring
anyone I know who is looking for property on Maui to you. Mahalo for everything. Ted Roberts

Many mahalos to Michele White for helping us find our home. Michele was steadfast with us for a couple of years and located a home for us that met all our requirements. Happy Maui Homeowners Mark and Theresa K.

Aloha Michele,
Vincent and I were so fortunate to have had you represent us as our realtor. As first time home owners, it was a bit scary and almost seemed impossible. Speaking with you from the very beginning made us feel comfortable which then made us feel like we were doing the right thing. Throughout the entire process you were there to guide us with your strength, knowledge and confidence. Your words of encouragement kept us focused and not wanting to give up. Your Aloha spirit and work ethics proves just how passionate your are in helping others. We needed someone that was not afraid to represent us, fight for us, speak up for us and were pleased to say that we found all that in you and more. We will not hesitate to refer our family and friends to work with you. Mahalo Nui for all that you've done for our family and we'll definitely be in touch.
Mahalo Piha,
Brandee and Vincent

If you are looking to buy a home in Maui, you can’t find a better realtor than Michele Muir White. While we were living on the mainland, we
decided to put our condo on the market. Michele had the place cleaned rom ceiling to carpets, and then, taking the furniture and art work we already had in the place, she staged our condo. Somehow, just by removing the clutter and rearranging a few pictures,
she got the place looking like a magazine spread. Then she  hired a professional videographer to make an incredible video.Our condo sold in two days! A cash sale! We didn’t have to come back to Maui until we needed to pack. All the documents were signed via computer.
Michele KNOWS Maui. She is easy to work with. She understands every step in the process, and her integrity is irreproachable. She really is
The Maui Real Estate Guru.  Jill Jennings and Paul Cheng

We'd been looking for a Maui home, and meeting real estate agents, for a couple of years. But we knew from the moment we met Michele that she was a kindred spirit and would help find us the right home. Michele was patient, savvy, and always had our best interests in the forefront as we navigated an arduous short sale. We could not ask for a better real estate agent. She has helped fulfill our longtime dream of living in paradise!

Big Mahalo's to Michele White,

Though I have purchased and sold many properties during my 58 years, I was not familiar at all with the ins and outs of Maui properties, the leasehold vs. fee simple issues and especially the special assessments and condo fees. We also needed to be able to rent out our property to be financially feasible and we were not aware that there are restrictions on short term rentals. Just another part of the education process we needed to be schooled on by Michele. With the expert knowledge Michele has, she guided us through the process gracefully.

One of the best things about working with Michele was her strong knowledge of the correct people to get things done, Mortgage Banker (Rick Smith from First Hawaiian Bank) and the Property Managing Agent (Leanna with iTrips). We felt so comfortable about these people that we had a post-puchase party for all of them at the end of our stay and can say that we have made some good friends!

If you are looking for a realtor who can find you the right place and make the purchase work for you, Michele is the one!

Andy and Julie

Michele White is a great realtor because of how much she cares. She understood what a home meant to me, a space of love and family. With this knowledge she worked very hard searching every possible avenue to find the perfect place for me to build my new happy life. Because of her commitment as a realtor, she did exactly that. She found the home with the exact energy and love I was looking for. I am grateful for the dedication and tons of time Michele put in while working with her.

Aloha Michele:

Leo and I would like to take this opportunity to express our utmost appreciation for your professional expertise and personal attention you provided to us in the buying of our first home in beautiful upcountry Maui. The buying of a home can be a stressful situation and having you to guide us through the process was very comforting and gratifying, as it set us at ease. Having you as an experienced tech savvy realtor, in the Docusign program (emailing; scanning; & electronic signatures), expedited the process as made it easier on all the parties involved in closing the transaction as well.

We are grateful for your advice and patience with us especially in setting up the many viewings of our potential future home. Your patience and guidance led us to our charming home for our young family. We are excited to building many happy memories for a long, long time in our home that we completely adore. We are very grateful to you for that. Adri H. & Leo C.

When we first were looking for a realtor to help us find a "dream condo" on Maui, we contacted Michele because her website mentioned ethics. We thought that was a good sign. During our early conversations, she provided a lot of education, as the Hawaii real estate market is different from most, with its leasehold properties and so many units being owned by investors. She patiently explained the pros and cons of various locales and complexes, and helped us focus on those things that might matter to us.

It took us over a year before we finally settled on the unit we felt was right for us. At times we felt Michele should give up on us because we were so confused and conflicted. But she stuck with us, helping us refine our criteria, bringing new properties to our attention, and circling back to ones we had previously passed over. And she was pretty cheerful about the whole process.

We recommend Michele as a really hard worker, knowledgeable, experienced, and devoted to helping her clients find what they are looking for. We felt we were in very good hands throughout the process. Linda & Bill Portland, Oregon

We have been very happy with Michele for her dedication in business. She showed us many condos and never pushed us to make a decision. Bill had certain specifics as to what he wanted and Michele was very conscientious in searching for the right one. When we found it she followed through with all the escrow process and alerted us to things that needed attention. With us doing this long distance from California. Michele took care of arranging repairs etc and followed up to see that it was taken care of. She communicated with the listing realtor and stood her ground when necessary to take care of our interests. We would highly recommend Michele and will use her if we have any further real estate business to conduct. Thank you, Michele. Bill and Audrey

"Michele is a fantastic Realtor. She went above and beyond what we expected  of her and handled our home purchase with professionalism and class. She spent a lot of time sending us listings that she thought would interest us and asked all the necessary questions to make sure we bought a home that suited our needs.

Her vast experience showed in every aspect of the purchase; from looking at houses, to negotiations, to overseeing that the closing went through without a hitch. After hearing some of the horror stories from friends regarding their home purchases, it was a blessing to have someone like Michele in our corner. Anybody looking to purchase or sell real estate would be lucky to have Michele as their Realtor."  B. and A. Starr, Pukalani

Aloha Michele,

Linda and I want to thank you for all of your help, knowledge, guidance and perseverance throughout this process of purchasing our condo in S. Kihei. This includes while in Maui and after we returned home, as the condo we purchased was not even on the market until after we came home. You were so attuned to the requirements we wanted in a condo that you felt this might be the one!

Every step of the way you provided us the necessary information to determine our interest, needs and viability of the condo's for our particular wants. You worked through all our due-diligence requests which sometimes might have been out of the ordinary for Hawaii. You were always available and ready for us. Whether it was a question, pictures, a re-showing of a condo again or some concerns we had, you were there.

Throughout this whole process you were able to keep us focused and moving in the right direction. We never felt pressured throughout the process and felt it was a collaborative effort. You keyed in on our personalities and adapted to meet our specific needs and requirements. Your creative ideas and options throughout the negotiating process were outstanding. You provided us with great contacts on property management resources, island insurance representatives, handyman services, property inspection, property taxes and all of the Maui utility companies.

What started as a business relationship evolved into a friendship we hope to continue to cultivate throughout the years from home and as we return to the island. Your continued offers to help after the closing is sincere and much appreciated; it is comforting to know that you have the personnel contacts, knowledge and experience necessary to fulfill your offers. Even more so, we trust you and know that you have our best interests at heart.

We hold you in the highest regards and would recommend you to any of our friends or family. Please feel free to give out our contact information to any prospective clients.
Mahalo,  Jamie and Linda Marusich

Hi Michele: I want to thank you for all the help you gave me and Rebecca. Buying a house in 8 days is very difficult any way, but buying a house in Hawaii coming from the mainland in 8 days is a miracle. But with your help, and knowledge we did it. More interesting is that even after the close of escrow you continue to help with many other issues. For that I am really grateful, and wish you many well deserved success .........Javid.

Michele, I am so very happy I met up with you with the dealings on a condo.   All through the sale you have been so very attentive and so professional in your dealings with me.  Nothing was a problem for you as you always had a solution.  From the first inspections, negotiations, sales agreements, repairs and things like the power company, telephone, insurance and so many more little things that I could not handle from over here.

My name is Barbara J. Burns and I recently purchased a very nice condo with the help of Michele Muir White and it is with great pleasure to let you know it was one of the BEST experiences I've had in a long time. She immediately recognized my needs and with her vivacious, enthusiastic and positive personality, she was right on top of every little detail. She extended herself beyond what was just expected and put that extra effort into our search for the right place. She was extremely sensitive to my needs at all times and as a result, with her diligent help, we found the perfect place in a timely, and seamless manner.

Oh, and let me say, we had fun along the way which is just as important to me as the deal. It is always nice to come across a bright light. I feel very fortunate to have had this very intelligent, sensitive and insightful Michele for my agent and I want you to know that you have a real "gem" working with you.
Barbara J. Burns, Kihei, Maui
and then she sold . . .

Aloha Michele,

I want to thank you so much for helping me sell my condo. The experience couldn't have been any better or timely. Not only where you absolutely "on top" of everything, but you were knowledgeable, gracious, personable and very communicative. I know you did a lot of work, but you made it all seem so easy. I appreciate everything you have done for me and I will be happy to do business and send referrals to you in the future.

Big Mahalo,
Barbara Burns

Aloha Michele,
From the moment you brought the seller and us together to connect and get to know each other, I knew we would appreciate you as a realtor.  You helped everyone and everything move forward smoothly.  So, thank you so much for all you did to stay on top of things, communicate constantly with all of us and for just being a true professional.  It was very apparent that you are a very good realtor.  Just to let you know we will be passing your name on to others needing a realtor and are very happy to refer you.  Best wishes to you.

We are writing to commend Ms. Michele White on her performance in selling our home here on Maui. Michele exercised careful judgment and was extremely patient while maintaining a professional demeanor during a very difficult and complicated real estate transaction.

Our home was a short sale (with two lien holders) and required consultations with legal and other specialized experts. In addition, the title change process was extraordinary and required Michele to continue assisting us long after she was compensated for her services.

We would recommend Michele to our friends and relatives in conventional real estate sales and moreover in helping with sales that require special attention. Michele is a very warm and friendly person and made us comfortable with a very challenging situation.
B. and M. Stephens, Haiku, Maui

Michele,

Thank you so much for all your hard work in helping me purchase my home for me and my daughters. Your persistence and resourcefulness not only lessened my financial stress, but you also helped me persevere through entire the process. I would not have been able to deal with the process had it not been for you. Throughout the whole transaction you were more than a real estate agent, you were also a friend, and my daughters and I are forever grateful to you.

Thanks again!
Casie, Maddison and Sena, Wailuku, Maui

Dear Michele,

We would like to thank you for all the hard work you put into helping us find the perfect home.  As first time homeowners, we were very hesitant taking such a big step and making such a significant purchase.  However, you made the entire process so easy and effortless.  We appreciate your honesty and your knowledge that led us to make thoughtful, educated and informed decisions.  With every potential property, you helped us see all angles and aspects.  We were able to find beauty in things we may have never had, and realism in things we thought we may have needed.  Both my husband and I feel like having you as our real estate agent was like having a family member with us every step of the way. We are so excited to raise our children in our new home.  And they absolutely love their home too!  Kainoa & Kepa K., Pukalani, Maui

Dear Michele,

Our family would like to take this opportunity to let you know how grateful we are to have met you. We are absolutely thrilled with our purchase. Thank you for truly listening and quickly understanding what we were looking for. Your knowledge of the area & keeping us on task made our experience very positive. Your keen grasp of the purchasing procedures resulted in such a smooth transaction.

We really appreciate your ongoing support and value your friendship.

We are very grateful to have met you.  You have helped make our family’s dream a reality.
Shelley, Debbie & Ray

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Michele! We are Canadian citizens and just purchased a lovely vacation condo home in Kihei, Maui! We had never purchased property outside of Canada, so to have Michele take us under her wing was very calming. We were tremendously happy with the whole process. She has a great way of getting to know us and our needs/desires and then zero-ing on
which properties to consider. She certainly knows the market in Maui, is competent and gives that "extra personal touch" not every realtor provides. She is an attention-to-detail kind of person answering our questions clearly and making recommendations we did not even consider! In a very short while, she became "a great friend" that we could count on!
Dave & Liz W., Surrey, B.C. Canada

My husband and I had Michele White handle all of our property searches while we were in Maui in July. From the time we met Michele she was polite, considerate and tailored our property searches to our needs. She went beyond her job requirements and always made herself available to us when we needed her as we were only in Maui for 2 weeks trying to find the property that we liked. She is very professional, outgoing and courteous. We would recommend her to any of our friends or family who are looking to find property in Maui. She is very knowledgeable in her field and always thinks of the client first. Thank You so much Michele for taking the time to find our vacation home.
Mark and Barbara H.

We were very pleased with Michele's efforts selling our Maui home. She held several open houses while we were in residence but was always respectful of our time constraints. When we weren't on island, she held more open houses and sold our home through her efforts. We have enjoyed working with Michele. Bill & Audrey C.
