Team reviews

Hello, my name is Jim. My wife and I highly recommend James Pycha for any realty needs. We are in the market to purchase real property in Kaua'i. James Pycha assisted us. James Pycha is professional, courteous, understanding, pragmatic, insightful, very responsive, and has a great sense of humour. James Pycha was the sellers agent in the matter. While we ultimately did not purchase the real property, we feel so strongly about James Pycha's skills that we wanted to write a review and let everyone know how great he is. Thank you James Pycha! Jim and Michelle

Bought a home in 2001.

I have known Jim for years and have used ReMax/Kauai as an agent in several capacities. Jim is highly knowledgeable of all Kauai real estate areas. Jim takes time needed to explain any details. Jim is especially skilled in negotiations and successfully closing deals. I plan to work with Jim on any Kauai real estate matters.  More Less

Bought a home in 2013 in Lawai, Kalaheo, HI 96741.

Jim was incredibly knowledgeable, professional, hard working and honest. He worked very hard to find what we were looking for and worked diligently to make the deal happen. We were very impressed and couldn't have asked for anyone better to have worked with. Truly a fantastic man to work with.
