Bought a home in 2014.

I am now a first time home owner on the Island of Maui thanks to Howard Dinits!!!! I cannot thank him enough. Being that this was my first time going through this process, there were so many things I didn't understand. Howard made the process go smoothly even though at times I got frustrated because there was so much I didn't know and understand. After meeting Howard, I knew that he loves his profession and he is excellent at it. Anytime I had questions, and I had a lot, he took the time to explain things to me. I am truly blessed to have met him. The passion for the profession he has is rare. I am really lucky. I will always have a place in my heart for Howard and my loan officer. They are the best. Thank you Howard for making this possible for me. I honestly cannot thank you enough.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Keaau, HI.

Howard Dinits always has exceptional knowledge of the local market- always "tuned in"! His knowledge of the sale and proper closing steps is impecable. Howards responsiveness to client is possibly his strongest point as he is very attentive to my questions and needs and can answer me timely and concisely in no nonsense, easy to understand language. Finally, I thought I was a good negotiator, maybe but Howards the best I've ever seen and I've been doing it with other realtors for years. I trust Howard like no one else I've ever worked with in 40 years.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $500K in Wailuku, HI.

We started working with Howard at the beginning of our search for a home in Maui. I cannot stress enough how great working with Howard Dinits is. He was so responsive and professional with us. I have complete trust in his vast knowledge and information on the properties in the area in Maui. He knows the communities and searched for 4 days with us in Maui and we put an offer on two houses. He is tech savvy up on the latest systems out there for speedy results. He is still my go to guy for everything from soup to nuts!!

Showed home in 2014.

Howard planned a full day for us of looking at properties we were interested in seeing. He did not disappoint, he was well organized, extremely knowledgeable, he provided us with a full packet with printouts of all of the properties, His good nature and spirit was contagious and he made it so fun. He will also be able to help us hook up with other services as well like bringing our dog over, and our furniture. He is multi-dimensional with the information we needed even beyond purchasing a home here in Maui. I can not say enough about Howard and the services he provided.

Sold a home in 2010.

I have done many real estate transactions in my life with many realtors, including eight different realtors on the big island of Hawaii. My last seventeen transactions were with Howard Dinits. He is by far, head and shoulders above all the rest. This guy really knows his stuff and is totally honest. He won't sell you something that's not right for you, and will stay with you through buying or selling to make sure you get a square deal. I wouldn't use anyone else if I were buying or selling in Hawaii.

Sincerely, Darrell Stephens

Bought a home in 2013.

We have used Howard to purchase two properties on Maui. I was referred to him by a Big Island Realtor and am so glad we were. Howard is a true expert. On the phone he puts you at ease right away because you know that you have found a realtor that is experienced, listens to your needs and understands what you are looking for. Howard provides all the positives and potentials of a particular property. He understands the local market, has a ton of fantastic professional connections and really takes the time and effort to watch for that special property that you are looking for; I love that he just doesn't set up a "watch" online and expect you to search constantly in areas of the island you are not familiar with. He is constantly watching for you and will call you when he has found your perfect property. He and Mary (his assistant and beautiful wife) are so professional, almost always pick up your call on the first ring and even if it rarely goes to voice mail, always returns phone calls promptly. You can't find a better realtor, to represent you as a seller, as a buyer looking for investment, second home or luxury property. Howard is THE realtor to have to represent you.

Showed home in 2011 in Kihei, HI.

Howard showed me several properties on short notice while I was on the island. He has extensive knowledge of the island and helped me decide what I can afford and the most beneficial area for me to live. Makes looking at real estate actually fun! I will definitely recommend him to everyone.

Bought a home in 2011.

Although we haven't made it to the negoatiating stage yet, Howard has been the quintessential relocation professional....always patient & always seems to have the details on homes as soon as they hit the market...thus giving us first shot at the best home. I know you'll find us the perfect place soon..... Mahalo, Travis & Ramona Aponte

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $425K in Kihei, HI.

Howard earned our respect, gratitude and admiration through the performance he delivered. We are from California and have been looking at Maui homes for years. We had several other agents in the past, all very good and professional. Howard however went above and beyond what any other real estate agent does. Even his peers told us we had the hardest working agent while on walk throughs in their listings, and we did a lot of those. We set a house hunting trip with Howard having never met him in person. We communicated via email and phone for months before setting a date to come to Maui and hunt for homes. Howard took it from there. The first day we actually viewed 20 properties and made an offer the first day. Over the two weeks we were on Maui Howard was with us taking us to over 80 homes in over 9 Maui areas. He learned what our needs are and more importantly, what my wife really wanted, liked and didn't like. Howard was with us all the way, every day. We made 5 offers while there and Howard negotiated and advised us as though he himself were buying. We ended up purchasing in Kihei and Howard has taken care of us and represented us during the closing phase while we have been in California. Like I said, just like he was buying for himself. This experience has reinforced for my wife and me that there are really great people in Maui, and Howard is the hardest working real estate agent we have ever met. No kidding. We are extremely happy and impressed with Howard, and his partner/wife, Mary. Those two have helped to start our new life in paradise and we consider them more than just a great real estate support team. We believe we have made great new friends in Maui. Mahalo Howard and Mary for all you do and the way you dedicate yourselves to your clients. Chris and Wendy from California

We connected, but it did not work out.

Mr. Howard Dinits has a detailed knowledge of the area, and provided a comprehensive review of possible apartments/houses we were interested in purchasing. We would highly recommend him. We have not found our 'dream' home yet, and are still looking.
