Gretchen has helped me purchase my first every property in Hawaii. She is a true professional who deeply understands every aspects of buying/selling properties in Hawaii. She fully understood my unique investment needs from the initial stage, and with her clear communication skills, she has guided me through the right path in finding exactly what I have looked for. Most of all, her personal dedication during the whole process was extremely impressive and I was able to trust her as a true partner. In addition, her execution skills were superb, after agreeing price until closing, as she (and her team) has covered all items flawlessly in a timely manner and making sure I understood 100% of every tiny detail. I strongly recommend Gretchen not only to US people but especially to Japanese people. With her long living experience in Japan, she fully understands the Asian culture, and can make sure all your needs are met in a local driven market.

Gretchen is the best! She impressed me during the whole process of buying my house. I loved how calmly she took care of things but never letting anything slip by her. She had done her homework on the property I wanted which made me feel secure every step of the way. Thank you Gretchen!

Gretchen was a dream to work with - almost enough to make me wish the relationship had lasted longer. She made the process comprehensible, transparent and painless. I would have no qualms at recommending her to a potential client.

We were very impressed with her knowledge of the market, the effort she put into understanding our needs and help us find a house to our liking in this very unique market. She goes the extra mile and makes herself available at all times of the day and all days of the week. We found her attitude very professional and is part of a network of professionals that came in very handy when we had to deal with a complication.
