04/08/2023 My experience with Kaleo was outstanding. He assisted me buying my first condo. Kaleo is very knowledgeable, professional and overall a pleasant, fun person. He made the process smooth and non stressful. Also, he continued to provide support even after the purchase was made. My experience with Kaleo was exceptional, and I would definitely work with him again in the future. Mahalo, Kaleo🙂 – Alona Los
12/14/2022 “Being a first time home buyer, I wasn’t sure how the process worked, but Kaleo made the process as seamless as it could be. He worked hard to get me listings as soon as they were available, and with his help I was able to successfully buy my first home here in Hawaii.” – Breck Rogers
10/14/2022 “Kaleo was very easy to work with. I had recently lost my husband, being able to work with a very patient and understanding man during this process of selling my home was important to me. My home sold very fast and Kaleo was knowledgeable and always easy to contact. Kaleo went above and beyond many times for me, he helped me get my car to the pier to be shipped, bought replacement light bulbs for my townhouse and even baked cookies for my open house. He took care of everything, the process was seamless. Mahalo Kaleo ” – R Drake
10/14/2022 “If you contract with Kaleo Ahina you won’t be disappointed. He loves his chosen profession and works hard for you. He’s also creative. The ad he created for the property I was selling was very eye catching. He’ll always keep you up to date. If you need a real estate agent I recommend Kaleo 100%.” – Robert Cummings
10/10/2022 “Kaleo Ahina is by far one of the Best Realtors in Hawaii. I have worked with him as a mortgage broker for over 10 years, and his service, commitment, and execution are unmatched. Clients goals are paramount to all recommendations, with a host of support team members assisting with mortgage, tax, and financial planning experts all available for his clients. I highly recommend Kaleo and Hawaii Realty Group for any Real Estate questions/needs you may have!” – Scott Brewer
10/09/2022 ” Kaleo was very helpful with purchasing my home in Hawaii. I was from the mainland and transferred to Hawaii for work. He and I looked at several homes on Oahu and I eventually purchased on Maui. He was patient, and was very familiar with the process, as it is slightly different than on the mainland. He also recommended a local mortgage broker – I ended up changing from a mainland broker to one based on Oahu. This helped out tremendously with the home purchase. I didn’t know but some sellers prefer to use local brokers as the process can be different than what mainland brokers are used to. I’m very satisfied and would use Kaleo again.” – Marc
10/09/2022 “Mr. Kaleo Ahina is a very astute and polite Real Estate Executive – he has helped my wife and I search for properties in Hawaii. He operates with calm, happy and cooperative attitude. I would highly recommend Kaleo if you have any real estate needs – such as researching an area for purchase or to represent you for a property sale. Good luck and Mr. Kaleo Ahina is top quality if you need a pro for real estate!.” – Mark Curtin
10/09/2022 ” My wife Shirley and I have known and worked with Kaleo Ahina for over a decade and have found him to be extremely knowledgeable and professional, always up on the latest real estate trends and cutting-edge ways to market and show homes. However, it’s his willingness to go above and beyond that really separates him from other real estate professionals we’ve known over the years. He graciously offers to help in both small and big ways, often in ways that do not generate any immediate financial compensation, just to demonstrate his commitment to helping us achieve our financial and real estate goals and overall, be a friend. As a 30 year resident and homeowner in the Enchanted Lake area of Kailua, I would enthusiastically recommend Kaleo for any of your real estate needs.” – Kevin Malmud
10/09/2022 ” Kaleo is the best realtor we have ever worked with. He is very professional and personable at the same time. His commitment to us meeting all our needs and expectations was unmatched. We couldn’t be any happier with the results.” – Freddy Aquino
10/09/2022 “Kaleo was awesome to work with. A property came up that Kaleo thought would match my needs, he was thinking of me even though I hadn’t looked at property for awhile, I had kind of given up. We put an offer and it was thankfully accepted. Buying real estate in Hawaii is not the easiest thing, much more difficult than the mainland. We had a couple hurdles to jump through and I felt like giving up a few times, but Kaleo and the team always had a positive attitude and got us through the end. I couldn’t be happier with my Waikiki condo, it was the perfect purchase!” – Jade Sheppard
10/08/2022 “We needed to move to the mainland and didn’t have any idea of how to sell our home. I picked several realty agents at random, and Kaleo was the first to respond. He was so helpful and walked us through the process, reassuring us all the way that he would be there to help us sell our 40-year-old house. Under his guidance, we sold for much more than we expected. So blessed. Thanks Kaleo.” – Raphael Ah Yee
10/08/2022 ” Mr. Ahina, Kaleo, is a Realtor +++. By this I mean that he goes . way beyond what you would expect a realtor to do. He recently helped a Thai friend who had just lost her American husband by not only selling their condo for her, but helping her with so much more–all of the paper work necessary for her to legally access funds, insurances, cremation and more. I do not know of many realtors who actually go beyond that, some would simply say contact this lawyer or this person, but Kaleo gets a full five stars for his caring and for his going beyond. As I said he is a realtor +++. Contact him for any of your realty needs. You will not regret it.” – Paul Pitarys
10/08/2022 ” Kaleo was the selling agent for the sale of our home. He was spectacular throughout the entire process. From beginning to end he was with us and on top of everything. We highly recommend him and his services to anyone considering selling their home.” – Drew Grimes
10/08/2022 ” I had the opportunity to work with Kaleo and his Transaction Coordinator Amy and I had nothing short of a Positive Experience with them both. Our purchase transaction went smoothly and they assisted out Buyer whenever needed. Thank you to Kaleo and Amy for your Professional help! Looking forward to meeting again soon!” – Everett Arakawa
10/08/2022 “The most helpful and hands-on realtor I’ve ever used. Always looking out for our best interest as the seller, followed through on tasks, detail-oriented, anticipated challenges and had ready solutions. Kaleo is professional, knowledgeable, and great to work with. Highly recommend.” – Jami
10/07/2022 “As a first time home owner, Kaleo delivered! He made our first time experience very transparent and easy. He was extremely knowledgable with all of the questions we had and provided us with every option available on the table. Even after we bought our home, he continues to stay in close contact and assist with any of our questions or need . Hard to find good people who genuineIy have a passion for people and what they do now days. I highly recommend him if you are looking to buy or sell a home. -Mahalo nui Kaleo!” – Gordon Furtado

10/07/2022 “I’m glad I was able to work with Kaleo to sell my cousin’s Kailua condo. Kaleo is a pro: knows the market, is an expert multitasker, and made what seemed like a daunting process (it was an estate sale, and I live on the mainland) as simple and easy as possible. Kaleo is da kine.” – James Tranquada
10/07/2022 “Thank you for your help with the sale of my condo. It took at little longer and staging was the deciding factor. I know the buyers will be happy and enjoy.” – Carl Kim

10/06/2022 “We had a great experience working with Kaleo on the purchase of our home in Kailua, HI. It was a complicated transaction on multiple levels but Kaleo and his team made it happen by staying on top of things, having clear communication, being proactive, providing prompt replies, sticking to the schedule, and literally pushing all the parties in the transaction to complete their deliverables. Looking forward to working with his team again!” – Vadym Ustymenko
10/06/2022 ” Dear Kaleo, Thank you so much for your help with selling my father’s home. We’ve had so many real estate agents before you wanting to help us but your honesty and expertise in the current market made me choose you and your team. We feel so blessed that we choose you as you made the process simple and easy to understand for us. Especially that the home needed to be sold to a specific type of buyer/AS IS. We appreciated your stress-free, kindness and responsive expertise. Your insight was extremely valuable to us and I don’t think we could have done this without you. Looking forward to working with you for our future Real Estate needs. Mahalo.” – Luis,Leilani Pereira & Bert Lum

“Kaleo has been great to work with as a first time home buyer. He explained in detail the process, and I have felt at comfortable dealing with him since the beginning.”

“Kaleo is incredibly responsive and supportive. He is excellent at finding homes that directly relate to my needs and wants. He is very knowledgeable about all homes on the market, especially those that I show interest in. As well as being a home-owner and DIYer himself, he is able to pick up on structural issues of concern and brainstorm estimated costs for getting the issue fixed or how fixable it would be on your own. I tend to be a bit timid, being a first time home buyer myself, but he is able to simultaneously convey the urgency of acting in a challenging housing market, as well as enact patience for finding the right home that fits my needs.”

“I am looking at putting my house up for sale and moving to the mainland in about a year, and I had received some promotional material from Mr. Ahina. I called and I was very impressed by his phone presence and his courtesy. He came to look at my property and I have a good feeling that he will be able to find the right buyer for my home. that is very important to me, and I am sure he will find a family or young couple that will appreciate the home and will want to be part of our neighborhood. Very nice young man, I’m glad I found him.”

“Kaleo is Helpful to his clients even to other people. His knowledge and experience is his best asset for his long years in Real Estate Industry. He will offer his service to buyers and sellers without any reservations. He is well respected by everyone who knows him.”

“The pandemic has set me back as far as listing my home. However, Kaleo has kept in touch with me by sending comps of homes in my area and contacting me by phone. I have talked to he on several occasions and he has been very professional and knowledgeable about real estate in my area. I feel Kaleo will do a great job for me when the time comes to list my home.”

“I have known Joseph now for several years, both as my new realtor and a good friend. He has recently helped a friend of ours sell her condo in Waikiki. Our friend had limited English, her husband had just died and she was alone. Joseph not only got her condo sold, but went many extra miles out of his way, by helping our friend, his client, with her taxes, husband’s investments, and the multitude of things that had to be done in order for her to return back to her native Thailand. So, as a realtor, I do not think that there are many out there who would go all of those extra miles to help a client. He is truly an extremely kind, generous and truly helpful, he will deliver the same service to you as he did for our Thai friend. Call his and give him a try. He will not disappoint you. Mahalo, Paul Pitarys and Banjob Hohumdi”

“We have known and worked closely to Kaleo for many years. He has always shown a high level of professionalism and his knowledge of the local market is unrivaled. When you deal with Kaleo you truly have a local boy on your side who knows the ins and outs of the market. His local connections can go a long way when push comes to shove. My wife and I recommend Kaleo 100 percent.”
- We have never met Kaleo in person, but through numerish coversations over the phone and emails we felt quite confident that he would do a great job in selling our unit.
- Kaleo was very professional and direct, which we liked. He gave very good info on how to sell our house for top dollar and we intend to use all his suggestions. Easy to work with and responsive to all our needs and questions. We hope to use him in the future to help us sell our home.

“Kaleo was very communicative and transparent. He was quick to respond to my inquiry and provided helpful information on my property and what is was assessed at. He’s definitely passionate about what he does and I recommend him if you are looking for a realtor that stays on top of things and keeps you updated as he receives additional information.”

- ‘We want to express our gratitude for all the above and beyond service that Carol provided to Antone and Sadie Cardoza. She took into consideration all aspects of their situation and we feel Carol represented our parents graciously and with compassion. We could not have asked for anyone better! Our parents are 79 and 92 years old… Carol treated them with respect and dignity, as though she had known them forever! As one of their children and liaison on their behalf I have only had a positive experience with Carol and the Hawaii Realty Group. “

- ‘I have just started working with Kaleo and am very impressed with what he has done so far. Do you want someone to get back to you in an appropriate amount of time, give you the information you need, willing to work with your agenda, a go getter type of person? Then you will want to work with Kaleo. He is all these and more. I am very impressed with his attentiveness to detail and to me as a client. My sense is that he will do all that he can to find the right buyer for my property and at the right price. Thanks Kaleo for being the kind of person I can count on.”

- First time we met he was concerned for my families needs and provided enough information on how to move forward if we decided to sell. Great customer service and sincere concern for the seller and most likely buyers as well. I rate him very high to anyone seeking to purchase or to sell their home.
