Dear Takako san,

Thank you very much for giving me your important time. At first, I was so worried and thought that no one wanted to buy our house where our family lived. But the house magically turned into such a GLAMOROUS house as if you charmed the house. Takako san, you have such a sophisticated taste and sense which attracts all demographics and segmentation. I was so amazed to see so many people gathering around you in minutes. You are a very mysterious lady who attracts everyone with your heart-warming communication. I am very appreciative for your caring heart. It seems this house sale ends safely. I am very happy that I have asked you to be my agent. I’m also thankful for your husband, who fixed many things for us. I thought it is very nice to see such a happy couple, who helps each other and works closely together!! Looking forward doing our house sale celebration party together after closing!!

Aloha Mrs Takako Friend,

I would like to say first and foremost that although you are not of local descendant.
Your professionalism and class cannot be out done by even the senior most associate in the Hawaiian Real estate market and your exceedingly high business and moral standards are something that your preceptor and Mr William Chee can be most proud of. In the world of high finance there are very few people with the heart and client first mentality. 
Such as yours. It has been an absolute honor and pleasure to have assisted you as a consultant in various projects. I will be sending a copy if this letter to my friend and classmate Fukuyuki Puckett who is on the Honolulu board of realtors and would not hesitate to recommend your service to anyone.
I will continue to spread your name across the state and always tell clients, friends, and family that Mrs. Friend and Prudential represent honest , integrity, and fairness.
Thank you very much for your valuable time and precious knowledge.

May God continue to rain blessing on you and Prudential Locations

Aloha and Mahalo,
