Etsuko Yoshizawa, Waikoloa Village
Put simply, LesLee is the best real estate agent on the Big Island! She made one of my biggest dreams come true by finding me the perfect place to start a new life in paradise and orchestrated the whole transaction very smoothly. I was nervous about buying a place in the state where I didn't know much about, especially for me being Japanese. But, she welcomed me with open arms, respected who I was, and got it done without any issues. I am so grateful to be able to call her my friend! I strongly recommend her as your real estate agent on the island, even to foreign real estate investors.
John & Gail Kretchmer, Kohala Ranch
We just closed our sale in Kohala Ranch and LesLee Delaney did a great job representing us as our Selling Agent. LesLee added value every step of the way, starting with her pricing strategy, staging ideas (inside and out), exceptional photography for the web sites and personal effort to prepare for each showing. It was a great decision to have LesLee be the contact for all showings. Once we had an interested buyer, LesLee was most helpful in negotiations and managing the inspection and repair processes (including finding and managing vendors), especially since we were off island. What we liked most about LesLee was her patience and professionalism and her tireless follow-up to resolve the issues that arose. We would strongly recommend LesLee to anyone interested in listing their home in South or North Kohala.
Wendy Minor, Kohala Ranch
LesLee Delaney is the real estate professional who I recommended to my daughter and son-in-law when they moved to Waimea from the mainland and were looking for a home to buy earlier this year. LesLee was tireless in her search and spent countless hours viewing homes with Mandy and Ben. They found the perfect home and LesLee was awesome in closing a terrific buy for them. She is The Best.
Laura Guerrant-Oiye, Kohala Ranch
I would like to take the opportunity to express our appreciation for all your hard work and assistance in the recent sale of our home. Your diligent efforts and professionalism were largely responsible for obtaining an attractive offer in a very short period of time; and the effort, energy and commitment that you provided went far beyond our expectations. Your knowledge of the market assisted us to correctly price our home, and your attention to detail and advice helped us prepare for the sale. We were stunned when you sold it in a very short period of time at 96% of our target price. For anyone considering buying or selling a home on the Kohala Coast… We highly recommend LesLee Delaney! LesLee simply knows the Big Island. She makes you feel as if you were her only customer, and always looked out for our best interests. She is a consummate professional who cares very much for the people she serves, and she delivers on everything she commits to. From the beginning and throughout the closing process, LesLee was always on top of it, and she was quickly available when we had questions. She patiently and knowledgeably walked us through any questions we had, no matter how big or small. Her professionalism, effectiveness, and patience are sincerely appreciated! Mahalo, LesLee! Outstanding job!
