"I live in California and so it was especially important to have a real estate agent I could trust.  Chad was very responsive and went out of his way to assist, including arranging for and checking quality of repairs during a time when real transit construction and resulting traffic made many service companies reluctant to travel to Mililani. I recommend Chad highly." - Melvin

"Chad was great.  We were very pleased with his expertise from areas of the house to address before showing to pricing the property right.  We have done multiple transactions with Chad and he will be the first contact for any other property transactions in the future.  His caring and professionalism is very evident." - Jonathan and Robyn
