I met Anabelle Smith at an open house she was hosting. What an amazing woman. I feel, I hired three people for the price of one. We toured homes while I was in Kona so she could get an idea as to what I was looking for and liked. I returned to the mainland, Anabelle was extremely communicative and kept me apprised on inventory. She continued looking on my behalf in my absence and kept me in the loop during the entire time! I returned to Kona after Anabelle helped focus on two properties which were exactly what I was looking for! She did an excellent job negotiating the best price for me and I couldn’t be happier with my new home. I refer Anabelle Smith to anyone I know who want to move to the Kona area. Thank you, Anabelle Smith, for helping to make my dream come true!
Annabelle was very involved in the transaction from start to finish. She throughly researched like-type neighborhood listings to come up with a fair listing price and made helpful suggestions on how to stage our home.
She used her contacts to help make the process go smoothly including inspections and pest treatment and quickly and was very proactive in having frequent open houses to show our home.
We were able to sell our home in 30 days which was mainly due to the efforts of Annabelle Smith. Would recommend her and her firm to anyone interested in purchasing real estate in the Kailua- Kona area.
My wife and I began looking for our dream retirement home on the Big Island in early 2014. On our first visit Anabelle showed us a variety of properties, and was happy to work with us even though we didn’t expect to buy for another year or two. After we returned to the mainland, Anabelle kept in touch with us and sent information on properties that she knew we would be interested in.
In June 2014, we returned to look at additional properties. Anabelle showed us a house that turned out to be too good to pass up, so we decided to buy right away. Anabelle negotiated a great price for us, and helped us find a local lender, a contractor to install shutters, a gardener, and a handyman. We had to return to the mainland, but Anabelle worked with us through the escrow and loan approval. We had to remain on the mainland for the first year after closing the purchase, and Anabelle went out of her way to watch over our property until we were able to move to our new home. She was not only a very helpful and professional Realtor, but our first, and best friend in Hawaii.
Hi Kathy and Terry,I want to thank you profusely for the excellent review. It's so nice that you consider me your best friend in Hawaii. I treasure your friendship and hope for many more special moments together. I am fortunate to have had you as my clients and now I've you as my friends. Mahalo again, Anabelle
