Bought a home in 2015 in Kipuka Nahuaopala, Pahala, HI 96772.
It was a pleasure doing business with Andrew, he was very helpful in all stages of the purchase and made me feel welcomed and comfortable . The sale/ purchase was flawless and every question answered with a sure knowledge and experience. Andrews follow up continues to make the transfer to my new home feel as if I were a longtime friend and I hope you get a chance to experience the gift of the island and its people. Thanks Andrew, Aloha
I am living in the house of my dreams thanks to Andrew! I am a first time home buyer and Andrew went above and beyond to help me get my house at the price I was comfortable with.
I had a set back acquiring my loan and Andrew came through like a knight in shining armor and had arranged for me to lease the house until things got sorted out and was able to buy it. I had not expected that and was so impressed that he took the steps to do that for me.
Being a first time home buyer Andrew made the buying process easy and guided me through it. I highly recommend Andrew and Karen at Ka'u Realty. Happy home owner, Cheryl S.

One of the best experiences my wife and I received, Andrew was very knowledgeable and easy to work with even when we were in Washington. We would highly recommend his service to anyone looking for an agent on the Big Island.
Mr. Bashrum, help me with on making a purchase in Hawaii. His expertise and knowledge about the real estate market in Hawaii was very helpful for myself and my family I appreciate time and advice, I would recommend him to others looking to buy in Hawaii.
We contacted Andrew from the mainland, he organized a day and time to meet. We met Andrew and Karen at the organized day and time and he arranged and took us to a number of houses and land in Naalehu. We decided that Naalehu is cute but not the place for us. Two days later we organized a time to see a number of properties in Hawaiian Paradise Park, Andrew was very good about getting us in and out of the properties. We finally decided to make an offer on a foreclosure but we found out after a couple of back and forth offers that the bank did not want to negotiate. We decided to take a different approach to property searches and again made use of Andrew to negotiate a price on two side-by-side blocks in HPP. Our offer was accepted and we now in process of purchasing the properties. Andrew has communicated and assisted us all the way through the process.
Andrew, showed us a few house in the Pahoa areas. He was able to with other agents quickly to accomodate our time frame. We would stay with him through the whole process if we'd decided to buy in Hawaii.
What a great guy! He really made me feel welcome when I came to the island. I would highly recommend him for anybody in the real estate market. His knowledge of the island and experience with real property was apparent. Andrew even took time out of his busy schedule to take a two hour drive to the airport to pick up myself and my rather large German Shepard Dog! I don't think I could find another realtor with that particular attention to service.

My wife and I recently purchased a home on the Big Island. Andrew was very quick to respond to our initial phone call and was willing to show us a house on very short notice. While showing us the house and property, Andrew listened to our ideas, needs and had the expertise to guide us through a hassle free purchase. He always returned phone calls and called us to report progress in the escrow. He knows the area and is more interested in a good fit than making a sale. He was a good ambassador for the aloha spirit.
