Really seems like they’re in over their heads, or not truthful with clients. Contacted them about a property, viewed it 2 days later then crickets for 2 weeks as they “got the paperwork together” for an application. When they finally had us apply, they said they were scheduling an open house 6 days before the 1st of the month. Grumpy phone service, lackluster communication skills, would advise to stay away.

This team feels highly arrogant. I was interested in using their service until it became unprofessional. Apparently they do so much business that they don't have time for people. He is quoted saying "there are a lot of Mai Tai buyers and tire kickers out there", and that they were unwilling to schedule showings without a loan pre-approval. I haven't even met them one time face to face, and they want my loan pre-approval. To know my finances before we even start? How do I know if I even trust them at this point. This is like going to a used car lot, where they ask you about your finances before they show you cars. This is the oldest strategy in the book. I just can't believe that they seem to have the courage do this openly, when its extraordinarily arrogant. They seem to have a lot to learn about people.

This firm is without question the best on Maui. After working with other agents I was pleased to have found them a secured their help w my listing. They are always fair honest and frank. This is something you dont always see and was a refreshing surprise. I have worked with both Mark and Mary Rose and they both have been outstanding. I would not hesitate for a moment to use them again. This is a top notch firm with extremely knowledgeable staff who understand Maui real estate incredibly well.

Nate was very professional and knowledgeable as our agent. He carefully walked us through each step of the home-selling process and made it very easy for us. He and his team provided great service, while also helping us maximize our savings. We would be happy to recommend them to others and would gladly work with them again!
Hawaii Real Estate Team and their Buyer Rebate programs is best and most profession service. This is the second property I have purchased with these folks. They are awesome! Each time they sent me a rebate for a few thousand dollars, that ended up covering all my fees.I highly recommend them.

  • Super knowledgeable & responsive & excellent people skills. Sent countless listings and the realtor was top of the line. Overall satisfied with my experience with this company.

  • Ben was my realtor in buying my dream home, then a year later assisted me buying the lot next to my house to make beautiful gardens and expand my property. He is reliable, knowledgeable, timely in his responses, and an excellent advocate for me, as the buyer.

    I highly recommend Ben and have referred several friends and family his way.

  • When I chose my realtor Ben Tabios it was because he was highly recommended to me by a good friend whom he also served. I didn’t know anything about 50 % rebate. It’s a great feeling to look down on the closing summery and see that credit. Cheeehuuuu!!!

    I highly recommend them.

  • Ben Tabios did an excellent job and my house sold for Full Ask 17 days after listing. First offer came in 5 days after listed on the MLS. I saved thousands and received more attention than I have ever had with Full rate brokers. The entire transaction was 3.5 %! I highly recommend Ben Tabios and the Hawaii Real Estate Team!

  • Mark did an amazing job with helping buy our first home in the big island. Not only was he always available, but he has a huge team of realtors who are also willing to help. He really took his time to explain to us all the details of the process and his patience with our MANY questions was great. We got a great deal on the house and he and thanks to him we were able to pick our home based on a more long term plan than we had thought of.

  • I used this company for my sale and my subsequent purchase. Because the purchase was contingent on the sale, I was very anxious. It was a complex situation that required great expertise. Both my agents from this company, Christian on Maui and Tauno on Oahu, were professional, very communicative, patient through my anxiety, great negotiators and really listened to me. This was my 8th sale and purchase. I would use no other company. Why pay 6% when you can pay 3%. I saved thousands of dollars. I am thrilled with my new home. Thank you Christian and Tauno!

  • Great with communicating status. Always quick to respond or reply. Great family guy. Knows the area and market. Usually knew the question and answer before I even asked. Great anticipation. We had a pleasant experience. He understood our timeline and met it, plus pushed the process when needed. And saved thousands.
    -James Barnett

  • I am very happy with the quick and uncomplicated sale of my house. Tauno was always prompt with responses. Unlike another realtor I used who over promised and under delivered, Tauno set realistic expectations which helped me to be prepared. I got exactly what I wanted!
    -Mena Nordkvis

  • Tauno is very experienced in the local real estate market. His understanding and attention to detail provided me with the tools needed to close on my house with a bidding war.
