Although the property I was interested in was already sold, Mr Meguro responded quickly to my email and phone call. I kept his contact information and would definitely call on him if I needed help with other properties in his agency.
When we started looking to purchase land on the Big Island, we sent e-mails to several real estate agents. Only Howard responded, and he responded immediately.
Howard's responsiveness carried through in all our dealings with him. He is reliable, knowledgeable, efficient, and extremely pleasant to deal with. He was proactive and attentive throughout our purchase, and even after it was complete.
We doubt there is a better real estate agent to be found on the Big Island.
