Aloha!

As a 28 year veteran of living on the Big Island I've seen many changes take place.   The population has almost doubled over those years and I see many new homes, developments and businesses.  The island has become a vibrant economy with the backbone being tourism and now agricultural pursuits are booming. We have many homegrown items and what a joy to eat fresh food from your local farmers' market!  Then the University of HI at Hilo is another major driving force.  New master programs have been added and enrollment is at record highs.  The campus boasts several new buildings and now has a School of Pharmacy, the first in the Pacific region!  And don't forget Mauna Kea Mt. and the astronomy research which has brought many scientists and support staff to Hilo and vicinity.  

I love showing buyers homes and talking "story" about all the special features nearby and what plants will grow well. Since I've lived here so long, I can give them the inside scoop about so many things. It is important to learn as much as possible about the Big Island and the many neighborhoods before buying.  

I also own several  rental homes and can give investors information on how to succeed here on the Big Island. I think my buyers appreciate my experience and knowledge.

For my sellers, I take extra time to take excellent photos of their property so it will showcase great on the internet and other avenues of marketing.  Buyers now start shopping for property with the internet and it is so important to catch their attention right away.  I also work with the sellers of homes to stage their house as nice as possible.  I bring my own staging items to vacant homes or those that need a special touch of style and color.  

I serve the HIlo town area, Puna District (includes Keaau, Kurtistown, Mt. View,  Volcano  Village, and Pahoa) and the Hamakua Coast. I hope you will call on me for your next real estate project!

Sincerely,
Marti Morishige, PB

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $100K in Pahoa, HI.

Marti did a wonderful job for us, she went above and beyond the call of duty. We had a permit problem and she did everything she could to help us resolve the problem. Our home was sold in 41/2 months even with the problem we encountered. We would highly recommend Marti to help you with your real estate needs. We would most certainly use Marti in the future if the need arises.  More Less

Bought a home in 2011.

I highly recommend Orchid Prop for your home buying experience. Very easy to talk to, Marti is a dedicated Realtor with years of experience and has extensive knowledge that is needed for the first time home buyer. Response time to e-mail, text and telephone is very prompt, and able to aide you from start to finish. She is able to utilize state of the art technology where you can digitally sign needed paperwork at the comfort of your own home, as opposed to taking time off in your busy work schedule to do so.

She was kind enough to show me over fifteen houses, negotiate three houses with multiple counter-offers which the sellers denied the prices. However, two houses later we were finally able to lock in the deal with the house that met my expectations. That being said, you know for a fact she is incredibly patient and dedicated to you the buyer.

It was an incredible experience having Marti as my Realtor and would seek her assistance again for my next home purchase.
