Our first impression upon meeting Malia was that she was very ambitious, energetic and quite the go-getter. That prompted us to ask her to sell our house. She did not disappoint. Our house was under contract in about a week. She was always there to answer our questions. And the entire process from listing to closing was very smooth. Malia is a true professional that works hard for her clients to get the job done. Thanks Malia!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $75K in Bellefontaine, OH.

My boyfriend and I started looking for a home (my first to own) in February 2013, shortly before our apartment lease ended. We chose to go the 'homeowner route' due to rent charges going up. Malia was listed as a potential realtor on many of the houses we browsed on Zillow; after reading about her expertise of the are and finding many highly recommended reviews such as this, I contacted her and we got the ball rolling. Less than 2 months of searching and with the luck of moving straight from our apartment into the house, Malia's work for an with us through that time was phenomenal. She is very keen on helping her clients find what they're looking for, and was very willing to show what we found that interested us. She is now a good friend to us, and we are thankful to have found a wonderful person to work with! If you are looking to buy or sell your home, Malia is the realtor to go with!

I never found the home i wanted but she says if I do she would be glad to show it to me. I think she cares about finding the right home for the person shes working with.

Sold a home in 2013 in Gregory, Delaware, OH 43015.

Malia Hughes became our realtor in the winter of 2010 when we started looking for a weekend place on Indian Lake. Malia was very patient as we stumbled through snow and slush. By March we had found a cute cottage and the whole family enjoyed the summers near the lake. However, we wanted to be closer to the water and with Malia's expert knowledge, advertising skills and persistent follow-up, not even one month passed from receipt of an offer, to finding a new place for us and the closings on both properties. Malia is an expert in her field, researching the properties she shows, answering any questions or concerns professionally and dealing with lenders and financial institutions with impressive expertise. Malia Hughes has become our friend and we would be happy to recommend her.

Sold a home in 2013 in Tri-Village, Grandview Heights, OH 43212.

Malia is hands on, perceptive, engaging, and has worked hard to achieve our goals. My wife and I have been working with Malia to find the perfect home for our family and can attest to her responsiveness, industry knowledge expertise, and willingness to go the extra mile. Without Malia fighting for a WIN in our corner, we may have given up our dream to leave our established city lives in Columbus and live in the West Libertry area closer to family. If you are considering Malia as the Realtor you want to work with to buy or sell your next home, please know that none of the testimonial written above was solicited by her. It is all from a first hand account of her professionalism which will translate into your successful real-estate transaction. D.A. Gardner

Bought a home in 2013 in Big Springs, Rushsylvania, OH 43347.

By the end of this review…you as a reader, will immediately want to pick up your phone and call Malia Hughes at Choice Properties… Malia is one of a kind, God truly broke the mold when he made her…Malia works so hard for buyers and sellers, she is truly a full service agent…She can and will link you up to lenders, home inspectors, home property insurance agents and anything and everything, that you will ever need to make your homeownership dreams come true… My story starts with a history of bad realtor experiences…from ones that will not call you back, to ones that do not know if the property is USDA or FHA acceptable… I was never more happier to have the chance to become a friend of Malia...She absorbs herself into making you, her first priority... As a buyer she gets to know you as person and will educate, guide and help you from beginning to end…no wait it never ends with her, she will become a part of your life as a friend… As a seller she get to know you and your property…even the past history from when the home was first built, to the day you watched, your first child take its steps across the kitchen floor… She becomes one with you, your family and the home…she is not just selling and moving a property, she is becoming a part of your life, your timeline and world… I was in the market to find my home…not just a roof over my head…but a place where I can; love, laugh and cry…it will be a place, where I carry my future bride across the threshold, watch my children grow, and wait for my maker to take me home… Malia knew what I was looking for and she paired me with a match…a farm just down the road from my parents…it could have not been more sublime, the property suited me, my lifestyle and my future perfectly… Even more she worked as a duel agent in this deal…the sellers had doubt about all agents, and where interviewing several agents…but they saw in Malia, a true caring person, that saw past the dollar amount and into the sight of history, dreams and faith in the common decency towards others… The sellers knew me, as I was once there neighbor and student, they knew my faith in Malia was noteworthy and decided to sign with her too as well… Fate, could not have not played a bigger hand…in that Malia lined me up with a lender and home inspector, that worked just as hard as she did…My home dreams came true because of Malia…Thank you Malia from the bottom of my heart…Thank You!!!

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $125K in West Liberty, OH.

Malia Hughes listed our home and was incredible. She was honest, professional, and dedicated to us. After the sale of our home we chose to use Malia as our agent when we bought, again she listened to what we needed, she was honest, helpful, and very proactive. I cannot recommend Malia Hughes enough!

Showed home in 2012 in Iron City, Zanesfield, OH 43311.

My daughter and son-in-law recently purchased their first home with Malia being their realtor. I, being a retired mom who is a control freak and wanted to make sure they didn't make any mistakes being they are young and were first time home buyers, tagged along to all their house showings. Malia impressed me in so many ways and I would highly recommend her for anyone needing a realtor to buy a home or a realtor to sell their home. My daughter and her husband will definitely use her again if they ever need to buy or sell real estate as Malia always has her client's best interest in mind. Just a few examples of why I say this: *Timeliness & Availability - Malia always went out of her way to show them houses on their time schedule and showed them every house they asked to see in an expedient manner. *Patience - These buyers did not have the finances to purchase a home to meet all their wants. Malia was very patient and guided them in finding a home that met all their needs and let them realize on their own what they might have to give up on their "want" list. Malia was excellent in giving them options and letting them see the big picture in what a home provided and let them see how maybe a house they would never have considered actually was the perfect house for them. *Good Negotiator - Malia assisted them in negotiating a good price for their home and kept them abreast of what was going on. * Honesty - Malia always provided honest answers to all our questions about the homes and their neighborhoods. My daughter considers Malia as a friend now having gone through the home buying experience with her and the relationship that they built. My family could not be any happier with the home Malia found for them and the service Malia provided. Buying a home is one of the biggest purchases in a person's life and is a very stressful time. Malia helped lift some of those worries because we knew we were in good hands with her and Choice Properties Real Estate!

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $100K in Lakeview, OH.

Malia was a dream to work with, I handled sale form California with myself and two sisters. It was my dads house, he is too old to negotiate. She did everything from talking to tenant , to handling the lender. It was put in escrow within a week and sold within 60 days. Always called back and kept me informed quickly. Just great to deal with. Wish i had her on my team everyday!!
