Ratings & Reviews

I have used Kimo Smigielski to find rental apartments at the Kahala Beach complex for 11 years now. He does his best to accommodate our needs when he deals with the condo owners. He also has more apartments in the complex on his list than any other agent. What is really terrific about his service is his immediate attention to any problems that arise, and they inevitably do because the infrastructure of this lovely complex is aging. If you want to rent a unit at the Kahala Beach, Kimo is the person to go to.

Helped me rent a Single Family home in Waialae-Kahala, Honolulu, HI.

We have dealt with Kimo Smigielski for several years and have always had good experiences. As a matter of fact, we continue to work with him for our real estate needs in Honolulu because he has a wealth of market knowledge, is dependable and is a professional. In addition to being reliable, Kimo is very organized, exhibits high technical skills and is a friendly, warm person with whom we enjoy interacting. We highly recommend him and Sandwich Isles Realty -- we have always been satisfied and will continue working with Kimo in the future.

Property manage a Single Family home in Waialae-Kahala, Honolulu, HI.

Kimo knows Honolulu! He has been our agent for 5+ years, to our great delight. Kimo is responsive, prompt, honest and inventive. He is willing to find a fit for your needs. His knowledge of his field of work and his knowledge of the city and island of Honolulu are deep. If he cannot answer your inquiry on the spot, he will research and deliver what you need to know. He is excellent in his work and his person.

Sold a Multi Family home in 2013 for approximately $275K in Waikiki, Honolulu, HI.

Being a transplant from the mainland, I knew no agents in Hawaii. I went through several before finding Kimo. His most important quality is that he listens and understands the needs and desires of both buyers and sellers. Unfortunately, many other agents I came across (as a buyer) listened and then showed me whatever they liked best, driving me around for hours looking at places that were not my criteria! Kimo took the time to learn about the areas of interest and has become an expert in the details of concern for ME. The highest compliment I can give is that we are now working on our second deal in a year and he almost reads my mind because he listens before he advises.

It has truly been a pleasure working with you and getting to know you beyond the business of real estate. Having the opportunity to work with you previously and again this year means more to me than words can express, your decision to allow me to assist you in your second purchase highlights my desire to be a valuable asset and friend here in Hawaii.

I truly appreciate your kind words and having the opportunity to share time with you during your stay with us. Rentals are an important part of my business as it allows me to be a part of the industry beyond simply closing a deal. I look forward to your return visit and having the opportunity to assist you in the near future.

Helped me rent a Apartment home in Back Bay, Boston, MA.

This is my 8th year working with Kimo Smigielsky. He has been enormously helpful, when it comes to finding an apartment for me or my kids, cheerfully and promptly responds to all problems, which occasionally come up in rental units and has never disappointed me. I have already signed a contract with him for next year for one of the Kahala Beach Apartments. I am delighted to be working with him again. Since I am renting, there are few opportunities to evaluate his negotiation skills, but at a few occasions, when the question of rent came up, or upgrading the unit arose, he has listened to my concerns and exceeded my expectations!

I truly appreciate the kind words Jutta, it has been a pleasure working with you all of these years and I can't believe it has already been 8 years! I look forward to having you as a guest at our Kahala Beach rentals and having the opportunity to catch up when you visit. We have already taken your advice on the unit and purchased new supplies: towels & new kitchenware. I hope you enjoy the fresh inventory and we'll continue to do what it takes to ensure a comfortable stay.
