      Sold a home in 2012.
      Jim is not only a true professional, he is a wonderful human being. I listed my property on Kaua'i with him and he sold it quickly, handling some arcane legal and easement details with aplomb. He kept me well-informed of the progress of the sale, and even helped me with some issues that were outside of the purview of real estate. I can honestly say that I started with Jim as my realtor and ended up with him as my good friend.  MoreLess

      Sold a home in 2013.
      Jim knows the pulse of the Kauai housing market. With his help we sold our condo and bought a lot with an ocean view, in which we are now building our new home. We highly recommend Jim for all your real estate needs. ~Holt & Margo Cloward

      Bought a home in 2012.
      Jim understands local real estate — supply and demand, cause and effect — he knows his business. He was wonderful to work with and as an agent he is professional and cares for his clients.
