Ratings & Reviews

Marco is very professional, and good to work with. He is very friendly, and listened to our needs very well, which is very important to me. We were able to narrow down a list of properties and visit them all in one day, all were viable candidates. Once we picked our spot, Marco helped us to get a good offer in and close quickly and easily. As we live on the mainland, this was more difficult than normal, but Marco handled it well. I did not rate Marco on Negotiation skills, as the property was also listed by his company, so he could not legally help us there. Marco explained the process to us concisely, and led us through the paperwork with ease. I would not hesitate to call him again should we need a Real Estate Agent again.

Sold a home in 2015 in Honalo, Kailua Kona, HI 96725.

Best Big Island Realtor First and most importantly, Marco Silva of Clark Realty sold our home in a week for a substantial overbid. Quite impressive given the list price in excess of a million and a half. Marco knew the market, precisely nailed the pricing and had us thoroughly prepared when we listed. Marco's advice and contacts in preparing were invaluable making us feel we were his only clients. He was with us every step of the way, hiring stagers, recommending cleaners, plumbers, electricians and even helping move items to storage. Most impressive was his videographer and his extensive and focused marketing strategy. Marco personally tended all aspects of the sale, never delegating to assistants or other realtors. He made sure the property was known to those most likely to represent potential buyers and was present at all showings. The spread he put on for the realtors open house was wonderful and the event was quite well attended. Marco's understanding of the business aspects of real estate was a blessing and he regularly sat on his computer in our home and guided us through the necessary forms and documents. Worthy of mention is that our home was jointly held with a troublesome and litigious LLC member. Marco's interaction with this member, attorneys, and the title company was essential to the successful conclusion of the sale. His honesty, tact and diplomacy are exemplary. Suffice it to say, we consider Marco Silva the best realtor in Hawaii and a self-effacing hero in our case. We have also come to consider him a friend. Jay & Monica Gordon

Sold a home in 2015 in Kahaluu, HI 96740.

Marco did an excellent job from start to finish on the sale of our property, handling cosmetic remodeling and staging, presenting the property well in advertising and helping us set a realistic price. He was enthusiastic and patient even when leading us through the intricacies of local real estate law.

Bought a home in 2015 in Kahaluu, HI 96740.

Before deciding to contact a Big Island of Hawaii Real Estate Professional, I reviewed the many websites that post customer satisfaction ratings of agents. After careful review I decided to contact Marco. He promptly returned my call and he carefully asked questions of us that helped him focus his search for our ideal home. Marco knows the marketplace, especially the various condo complexes and their advantages and disadvantages. He listens very well and is able to figure out what we want and what we think is important. If we are headed down the wrong path, he very diplomatically gave us additional information that we all found useful. Marco is totally honest, and of high integrity, and that was immediately obvious, as is the fact that he cares about his clients. Marco treated my wife and I as equals in this home finding endeavor and that has helped make this process a success for us. I can't think of a single thing that he could have done better. I have been in sales for 36 years, and I know salespeople an he is a great one. He was and is amazing. He has a great sense of humor, is most optimistic, and is fun to work with. He communicates via phone, and email very quickly and thoroughly and never ignored any of our questions. When we had legal questions about the unique real estate laws of Hawaii, Marco correctly and always suggested that we should verify our concerns, along with the available advice and information, with an attorney, and to carefully review all the documents available. We would not hesitate to use Marco's services again, and we are happy to serve as a reference for Marco and for Clark Realty. We found the Clark Realty website to be the best on The Big Island, and it shows the most information, including the Monthly Maintenance fee and property tax rates that so many other sites hide, so Clark Realty made it easier for us. They trusted us with all the information, not just that which seals the deal. We couldn't be happier with our new home and the people and company who helped us find it and to make it our own. Mahalo to you Marco & Clark Realty, Jim & Ali Cason, New Residents in Paradise

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $1.525M in Captain Cook, HI.

I give Marco five stars in all categories and he deserves it. Marco was the fourth real estate agent I contacted after poor experiences with the first three. My home search on the Big Island took over 15 months total. I spent nearly 8 months working with Marco and his patience had no limits. Looking back on it I can't believe all the time he took with me, how many travels we took all over the island even though he probably knew it wasn't going to be a fit for me but he also knew that it was something I would have to see and decide for myself. We made a few offers on homes and couldn't come to an agreement with the sellers. But, when the home I purchased came on the market I think Marco knew that this was THE one. We made an offer and there was no way that Marco was going to let this house get away from me. He was always 100% on my side, always in my corner and had my back all the way. Everything was negotiated to my satisfaction and Marco handled every step of the way with honesty and integrity. The home purchase process can be difficult, especially the loan process but it is all easier when you can have absolute trust in your real estate agent. Obviously I can't say enough about Marco and I 100% would recommend him to anybody considering a purchase on the island. Not all real estate agents are created equal. Marco Silva was definitely the best man for the job and I am so glad I lucked into finding him.

Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $375K in Kailua Kona, HI.

Marco came highly recommended by a personal friend, who had purchased a condo in Keahou. We also wanted a condo in Keahou. Marco prepared and submitted several offers for condos. When an offer was accepted Marco stayed on top even though we were dealing with a difficult seller. This seller missed several appointments to sign escrow papers. He was able to get this deal done. He was always available to consult with and always had time for us. We would highly recommend Marco for any real estate needs in the Kona area.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Kailua Kona, HI.

Marco showed us several properties and honed in on those that would meet our budget and desires. He kept in touch with us, was creative in finding options, worked well with the seller's agent and gave us valuable advice, including staying in the process as the second choice bid on the condominium that we were ultimately able to purchase.

He had helped us with advice in getting a rental when we first arrived in the area and continued to offer ideas and suggestions as we looked for a permanent residence.

We have nothing but praise for his efforts and his professionalism.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $425K in Kailua Kona, HI.

Marco Silva has been a real estate agent on the Big Island of Hawaii for many years. I enlisted his help to find a suitable house for my family. Despite my being very fussy, he has been incredibly patient and has shown me many, many houses over the years. When we finally found the perfect place, he walked me through the offer to purchase, the mortgage process, escrow, survey information and all the details necessary for closing the deal. During the process of buying the house, if he found something unusual or something he thought I should follow up, he notified me right away. He always answered my calls immediately and was extremely prompt in following up on any questions I might have. He is extremely honest, very personable and yet businesslike in his manner. I would highly recommend him as an agent.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Kailua Kona, HI.

I had 3 days in which to look. Marco was recommended by a mutual friend, I told him what I was looking for and he lined up 3 houses to look at the next day. I liked the first place I looked at, and made an offer. Marco took care of everything. I had been to Kona many times and knew what area I wanted. Now I look forward to making the move from the mainland.

Bought a home in 2014 in Weliweli, Waikoloa, HI 96738.

I don't think I can do Marco justice in words alone. He knows how to serve and does serve his clients. "Service," as Werner Erhard said, "Service is adopting your client's goals as your goals." This is a perfect description of how Marco works. We searched for 3 years for the "right' condo on the Big Island. Made many offers which for one reason or another did not result in a contract. Marco never lost his enthusiasm nor dedication to searching prospects for us. Finally, when we were about to give up, we found a condo which needed some upgrading and turned the whole offering level to him. Deal done at a great price allowing us to spend a considerable additional amount in the upgrade. Perfect example of adopting our goal as his. He searched wide, did video walk throughs of prospects for us and when we were on the island, spend a great deal of time showing us prospects. Once we had a deal, he stayed on the case, and helped us secure the necessary information and data to complete financing needs. While I speak from a buyer's perspective, I have no doubt that he works with the same diligence for his seller clients. He is simply the best Realtor I have ever worked with. I have now charged him with looking for a house so that we can move permanently to Hawaii. Use him, you'll never find a better representative.
