In my almost 40 years long career in real estate, the most rewarding thing has always been making my clients' dreams come true. So many people dream of living in Hawaii, but those who decide to make that move will have some major decisions to make. What island and neighborhood to choose? What kind of property will be best? How do you find a great property in today's market? Is this going to be a primary home or vacation rental? How much space inside and out, how many bedrooms and baths?
These are just some of the questions buyers need to find answers to. Turning home buyers' dreams into reality is the best part of my job; it's very important to listen to and understand the Buyer's "Wish List"! I like to take the time to explore options, and when we find the right one, well, that makes my job the most satisfying!
Jovan and Bob are the perfect example. After searching for their dream home for almost two years, they found it in Puako on the Big Island of Hawaii. Puako is a very sought-after oceanfront neighborhood, and finding a perfect property for them was not an easy task. But we did it, and they love their new home. They were even kind enough to present me with a letter of recommendation describing their experience, which I share below in its entirety.
Thank you, Jovan and Bob, for your kind words. I appreciate you both.
"Our Expert in Puako Real Estate, Jan Nores
When we began working with Jan Nores to help us in our Hawaii real estate search, we knew she had vast knowledge of local real estate and incredible expertise in navigating what can be a complex and fast-moving market. However, we had no idea that she'd be such a strong partner
and advocate in our nearly two-year search for our perfect slice of Puako real estate, or that by the time we found our oceanfront home, she'd become so much more than our Realtor - she's truly a trusted and generous friend.
We began looking at the Kohala Coast area for just the right house. A stay on Puako Beach Drive prompted us to specifically target our dream. We were really open to anything on the drive but, unexpectedly, came upon a home beyond any of our dreams. Jan was there every step of the way to guide, encourage, advise and support us. She listened to our needs, made herself available to answer every question, and went at the pace that was right for us. Searching for a home can be stressful. Searching for a home in the Puako real estate market of today can be even more so, but Jan was always there to reassure us that the right place was out there, and she wouldn't stop looking until she helped us find it.
And then, when we did find our Puako dream home, Jan acted as our eyes and ears - because we were on the mainland at the time, we purchased the home sight-unseen - by exploring every aspect and detail of the house for us. Knowing that beachfront access and the ability to snorkel were vital to us, Jan not only assessed the beachfront for us from land, but she and a crew of experienced snorkelers swam the waters in front of and around the home so that she could be certain the recommendation she was making matched what we wanted and needed. That's not something we asked or expected our Realtor to do, but it's second nature to Jan. When it came time to go through the process of purchasing our home, Jan's thoughtful advice and the steady demeanor that comes from her wealth of experience helped us secure it under incredible circumstances. As if all she'd already done wasn't enough, she went so far above and beyond what we could have expected of her. It's not an exaggeration to say that Jan and her extraordinary kindness and years of highly specialized knowledge of the area helped make it possible for us to be where we are today, at our Puako oceanfront home, which we will enjoy with family and friends for generations to come".
