My Client Reviews
My wife, Ramona, and I first met Colleen back in 1995. We were doing the usual novice thing of going to Open Houses every weekend not knowing what we were looking for. we spoke to Colleen and she told us we were doing it all wrong. We told her what we were looking for and she took it upon herself to line up viewings. In no time we found what we wanted and it was our home for 25 years. Based on our experience with Colleen, I sought her out and asked for her to guide me through selling the property. She gave me tips on how to improve the showing of the home. When I was ready to sell, she worked hard to get as much exposure on the market as possible. As I was moving to the Mainlean, she made calls and set up contacts in the real estate market in South Carolina. Thru that contact I was able to locate and purchase a house. At the same time, Colleen continued to work hard to represent my interests in selling my home in Hawaii. I am totally satisfied with the attention and service that Colleen gave me both in buying my first home and then selling it 25 years later. I would recommend her services to anyone wishing to buy or sell real estate.

There aren't enough words to describe how awesome Colleen Pang-Wong is. She helped us find our dream home in Hawaii! She assisted us even before we had arrived on the island. She facetimed open houses so that we could get a feel for what houses look like on Oahu. This was extremely helpful. She gave my husband a tour of various neighborhoods when he arrived on the island first. Colleen is incredibly detail oriented, and at every step, she was our advocate. She wastes no time when it comes to seeing open houses - which we found to be a critical factor in buying our home! Her connections on the island with other agents and home related matters is astonishing. She just knows who to ask or go to for any home related issues. She even showed up at the close of escrow to take notes for us! Not only that, she gave us great advice on schools, shopping, and places to visit, as we have children. Colleen is a superb realtor and we will definitely work with her again when we sell our home. Highly highly recommend her!
Colleen's expertise helped us buy our dream retirement home in the Gentry Haleakea development. This is the third real estate transaction Colleen helped us with. The two previous transactions were both IRS 1031 (rentals) and were completed in 2005 and 2007 - both without problems. Colleen spent a week with us in our 2005 purchase educating us about the local real estate market. In the following week Colleen got us into contract with an ideal property. The 2007 purchase was quicker and Colleen found us a property and got us into contract within a week! IRS 1031 transactions have multiple rules and Colleen was on top of them making certain there were no problems. In 2015-16 Colleen helped us sell our two rental homes and our main home - all sales were done quickly without problems.
