Have you heard the stories of people packing up everything and moving to Hawaii? Yes, I am one of those people. My family decided to move and within six months we had sold everything we owned in North Carolina and arrived on the Big Island in June 2014.
In our first 60 days Hurricane Iselle hit the island and we were without power for over a week. Power was restored and the lava flow from Puʻu ʻŌʻō vent from Kīlauea Volcano changed direction and headed toward our beloved Pahoa town. Through it all, the community came together to care for each other creating a strong sense of belonging and connection for me. What an amazing greeting from the Big Island!
I have discovered I enjoy lots of white pineapple, wading in a warm tide pool, the sound of the coqui frogs, and nights on the lanai. I also have learned about catchment tanks, solar power, the value of a 4-wheel drive and the importance of multiple pairs of slippahs. Real estate has allowed me to share what I love about the affordable paradise of the east side of Hawaii Island.
Just like the TV show we looked at 6 homes on our first day out. It was the only day we needed because she nailed it on day one!! She knew what I could spend as well as the type of home and we looked at some both a little higher and lower. She knew my wants and dialed it in quickly! She was also able to suggest a remarkable title company. Everything she did and followed up on exceeded not only my but anyone's expectations. The recommended home inspector was just as detailed and informative as she was. I found some homes listed on other websites that looked perfect and were in my price range. When I asked her about them she did an investigation while on the phone. She uncovered that those homes did not have permits and were not approved by the county. She also explained that if I did purchase one of those homes that I could get the permits by going thru the process and quite possibly end up spending more than if I purchased one that did have clear permits. Thank God I had her helping me!!!! I have purchased and sold 3 homes in my lifetime with this being the 4th. I have never before had this type of personable service before. I highly recommend having her as a realtor because I'm sure no one else could have done a better job than her. By the way the attention she gave every step of the way was the reason we closed in just 21 days. Honest, dependable and over the top service makes her the best choice if you are buying or selling a home!!!!
My husband and I have worked with Jeanna for a couple of life changing decisions in our life regarding investing into properties and relocating "our nest." Our first impression of Jeanna was that she is very sharp, resourceful and real estate is her passion. What we liked about Jeanna is that she listened to our needs and made the showings of the properties happen even on short notices, as my husband and I looked on line for the current listings. As usual we had many questions as we thoroughly searched for our dream home. Jeanna was able to answer all questions, and if she needed to find the answer she would always get back to us in a timely manner. We gained her trust immediately and it made our hunting for our new home smooth and quicker then we expected. We would definitely work with Jeanna Rimmer at Hawaii life again for future investments. She is the go to person for selling and buying property and finding your dream home! Mahalo Jeanna for helping to make our dreams come true!!
