"Yvonne went far above and beyond the average realtor in helping me sell my mother’s waterfront home in Hawaii Kai. And all of this occurred during a very trying time in my life, dealing with loss and other family issues, so her extra assistance was very helpful to me. She knew better than I did what needed to be done to maximize the sale and gave me spot-on recommendations that ultimately proved to be right. In a very short time, I realized I had the best Realtor® I could have wished for. She followed through on every promise, paying attention to every detail large or small. As a business owner myself, I knew to what lengths she was going through to see this project through to the end. She got me through a lot of rough patches. She made so many things easier. Simply put, she was amazing."
"Yvonne exceeded our expectations on every turn, with her attention to detail, exceptional knowledge of the market and transaction process, and even putting her own interest aside for the interest of us. Yvonne began the process by setting expectations on how the process would go, and prepared us well for our journey of selling our house. Her expectations were detailed, realistic, and turned out to be 100% accurate, down the exact amount the house would sell for. Amazing! She has impeccable design taste. Her marketing skills are like magic. The pictures and videos were amazing, and we received one of the highest per square foot prices ever in Enchanted Lake. She is an amazing conflict resolver, therapist, designer, technologist, communicator and negotiator with exceptional integrity and passion for her customer, her business, and her profession."

"The Ultimate Real Estate Professional.” Yvonne is the ultimate real estate professional and I am convinced that the sale of our beach property would not have occurred without her highly developed real estate knowledge and the people skills she displayed to the seller and buyers together to consummate the deal. This real estate transaction was complicated and presented a number of obstacles which at times made us question whether we wanted to proceed with the transaction. Yvonne is the brightest and most diligent real estate agent we have used in purchasing a home. There is no doubt that Yvonne’s attention to detail and responsiveness to our concerns protected us as buyers and resulted in us acquiring property in the location where we wanted to reside in Kailua."

"Her patience, relentless optimism and pursuit to achieve the best outcomes for us, and hard-work and professionalism continues to amaze us. We’ve recently sold our house with Yvonne, a $2M+ sale. She has a keen sense of what are the best actions that one can take to market a house and put it in the best light possible. Yvonne’s taste and staging skills are excellent - she went above and beyond of what we were expecting, to help us make our house look outstanding. She understands very well the characteristics of the Oahu market and what buyers are looking for. She knew how to hold our hands, guide us through the process as we went through each of these transactions and, at times, help us not take actions that could have been detrimental to us. Her patience, relentless optimism and pursuit to achieve the best outcomes for us, hard-work and professionalism continues to amaze us and have us come back to her for help."
