What my clients are saying...

As a widowed person anxious about selling a home I was having difficulty maintaining, I could not have had a better person recommended to me than Willie Ahana Not only did he assist me every step of the way with all the complexities of selling my home, but he also helped me to purchase my dream condominium home. Willie is the kind of individual whose professional and personal competence meets the highest standards required in the field. He was thorough in his communication, both written and oral. That way I was up to date on everything that was happening. He treated all the people involved, from prospective buyers to various agents, with dignity and respect. If anyone were to ask me for a recommendation on a real estate agent, I would not hesitate to recommend Willie as one of the best in the field. Sincerely, 

— Millie Y. (seller, buyer)

It has simply been a pleasure having Willie Ahana representing me with the purchase of my condominium. Currently residing in New York City since leaving the islands in 1980, I considered the possibility of a real estate investment in Honolulu. Highly recommended, I was introduced to Willie Ahana, He impressed me as being an extremely competent and experienced professional. When returned to Honolulu, for a three-week vacation, I knew that I would be comfortable working with him and asked for his representation. In less than a month, escrow closed!!! I am thrilled with the property! Willie’s execution of this sale exceeded my already high expectations. His experience, guidance, organization, accessibility, dialed and thorough approach expedited the process and made this purchase seem effortless! I appreciated his articulate manner, conscientiousness and many helpful suggestions. I look forward to my next transaction with him. Sincerely, 

— Edwin O. (buyer)
