We used Jenni on our purchase of an investment property in Kailua-Kona. We have several investment properties in the Wine Country of northern California, but were very unfamiliar with the resort market on the Big Island. Jenni Lee offered us expert guidance, steering us away from our initial pick to a much better property she found us for less money and greater income potential. Even after the close of escrow, Jenni is always available when we need assistance or have any questions. She is well connected within the community and therefore has many contacts, ie sub-contractors, property managers, etc... When it comes to purchasing real estate or any large investment for that matter, it is important to deal with people who have integrity, honesty as well as local maket knowledge. We know that Jenni Lee will always tell it like it is and hold nothing back. We will continue to use Jenni Lee for in the future as we expand our holdings in the Hawaii market.

Jenni was such a pleasure to work with. From start to finish, she was knowledgeable and professional. I really sensed that she took her fiduciary responsibility to heart [a trait that seems to be lacking in this specific market]. Jenni is the first name I will recommend for anyone needing a realtor on Kona side. Sincerely, Mark M.
Jenni is extremely knowledgeable, a hard worker & a great listener. During our first meeting, Jenni advised us of the different types of land ownership in Hawaii. We then told her what we were looking for. On our second meeting, Jenni had lined up 5 condos for us to look at. All fit what we had asked for, but by seeing these, it allowed us to fine tune our list even more. During this meeting, she advised us of a property she thought we should look at. Based on the price of the unit, we declined. At our third meeting Jenni had found more units based on our refined list. We did find one unit we felt might work for us, but Jenni still wanted us to look at this one unit. She stated she had spoken with the listing realtor & her clients were motivated. We did look at the unit & it exceeded most of our wants, but we didn't give it much thought, given its price & our budget. We met one final time prior to leaving the island to express to Jenni our hesitance since none of the units had prior rental income established. By the time we were home, Jenni set up a meeting with a property manager who told us his opinion on potential rental on the unit we liked as well as the higher priced unit. Given this info, we determined the higher priced unit might better serve our needs & we made an offer. A counter offer was made & much to our delight we met at a price within our budget. Jenni provided us with many referrals to professionals to help us overcome obstacles. She continues to support us even though her commission was paid months ago. Would give six stars if we could!

Jenni Lee is superb. She is very energetic, organized, responsive, friendly and helpful. We were definitely plunging into the unknown, buying real estate in Hawaii when we call Maryland home. But Jenni made it easy. Then, after the deal was closed (and most real estate agents become much harder to contact), she really hit it out of the park, helping us to redecorate the condo. She said it was just like staging, only after the sale. Wow. I'd call it exceptional (and fun!). We had a blast running around, picking out furniture and accessories and paint. She identified painters and handymen, helped us haul furntiure and when we unfortunately had to leave before it was complete, supervised the work and kept us up to date on progress. Everyone who has seen the redecorated condo has been effusive in their praise for its appearance. We can't say enough good things about Jenni. She is a truly outstanding realtor and a wonderful person. An 11 on a scale of 1 - 10.
If you want to sell your place, you want Jenni Lee for your realtor. She is a true professional who works for her clients and is trustworthy, honest and dependable beyond all expectations. Jenni is super nice and fun to laugh with too...she's that person you feel like you've known for years. I defined my sales goals and she brought the results! An international move can be quite stressful...and Jenni helped make the selling process so much easier.

Dear Pillow Lady,
Thank you again for all your hard work to sell the condo. The staging was spectacular. (I think it was the "pillows".) And thanks to your assistant also.
