As your Buyer's Representative, we can make the process of house hunting much easier and more efficient than if you did it all yourself. We can help you get financing, guide you to local neighborhoods, help you determine your budget, and prioritize a list of essential features that you need in your next home. We'll save you valuable time by finding the properties that best suit your requirements, and will show you only the most promising ones.
Once you've found a place that catches your eye, we'll look at comparable properties in the area to help determine a purchase offer. Then we'll negotiate on your behalf with the seller to make sure you get the most favorable terms.
It's our job to look after your best interests, and we will do so at no cost to you as a buyer.

Selling a house on your own can be an overwhelming task. There's advertising to plan and budget for, open houses and private showings to arrange, purchase offers to negotiate, contract contingencies to worry about, and complicated paperwork to fill out. Make it easy on yourself by putting your home in the hands of seasoned professionals. We have extensive experience marketing properties and showing them to their best advantage.
First, we'll perform a comparable market analysis to determine the most appropriate price for your home. Then we'll provide home staging advice and suggest landscaping changes that will help draw buyers in. We'll advertise your home through a variety of methods, including local publications and online MLS® listings. We may even showcase your home as part of our site's Featured Listings.
When it comes to negotiating a purchase offer, we'll make sure that you get the best price the market will allow. We'll help you understand contract contingencies and details of the closing process, in addition to handling all the paperwork for you. Essentially, we're here to represent you throughout the entire selling process, and to make sure that your real estate transaction is a positive and profitable experience.

Buying Your Kauai Home With Elite Pacific Properties
The Kauai real estate market has many different areas that are all very unique. Do you want to live in a city, a secluded forest, or an oceanfront home? These are some of the things that you should be thinking about when you are thinking of your next steps in the buying process. However, let's back up a bit and make sure that you have talked with a bank or dabbled with a mortgage calculator to know how much you can spend. Are you selling an existing property at the same time? If so, be sure to contact us and we can help you sell the home or suggest interim housing options while you wait for the sale of your existing home to take place.
Once you are fully aware of your finances it's time to sit down with us and find out exactly what you are looking for in a property. We want to get you the right house in the right location, as this is what we love to do! We feel that your purchase is more than just a real estate transaction, it's a chance for us to help you get the future home of your dreams. This is a big deal and we understand how special this new beginning is for every member of the family. Once we know your needs, we will be sure to find you properties that match your requirements at a price that doesn't exceed your budget. We are here to make dreams come true, not to stress you out financially!
It is our pleasure to guide you through the home search and once you find that perfect home, leave the negotiations to us! We'll make sure you are aware of all aspects of the contract and get you the best price we can on your new island dream home. After the negotiations are completed we can suggest lawyers, home inspectors, and moving companies that we know and trust in the area.
Selling Your Home In The Kauai Real Estate Market
Selling your home anywhere can be a stressful experience and leave you overwhelmed with what to do first. Stop worrying! Making the decision to sell your home is the biggest step in the process. Once you call us to let us know you are ready to sell, we can work with you on a plan to get your home ready to list. We can suggest ways to depersonalize spaces and declutter rooms to allow the buyer the best chance at imagining themselves in the space. We can suggest people that specialize in doing this or you can get the home ready yourself.
Once your home is ready, we'll bring in a photographer and get some high quality photos to capture the beauty of your home. As soon as this is done we will publish the listing and work on a marketing plan to get your home the maximum exposure on the Island, and of course through our network of agents across the globe!
As soon as you have a buyer for your home, we will negotiate on your behalf and get you the best price possible. We will take care of all the paper work and can also suggest lawyers and movers to help you with the final stage of the process. Real estate is what we love to do and treating our clients like gold is how we became the most successful real estate firm on Kauai. We look forward to working with you and guiding you through one of the most important purchases and/or sales of your life!
