"Erik & Romy were incredibly helpful in our home search. They were patient, knowledgeable & respectful! No detail was left out and no question too silly. They met with us to get to know us & our needs, then worked to find us a property that fit what we wanted. As we don't live on Island, I'm sure it wasn't the easiest process for them, but they were willing to help in any way possible, even though it took a few years to finally finish the process. I did say patient, right. We won't hesitate to use them again if the need arises & would highly recommend them." - Pat and Paul

"Erik and Romy patiently (over four years and a whole pandemic) and consistently helped us to find our dream home on the Big Island. They are extremely knowledgeable, honest, attentive, competent and hard working. Because we were living on the mainland, we trusted them to pre-vet the properties they showed us until, at last, even in a tough market, we found exactly what we wanted. Their careful consideration of our needs completely merited our confidence. Every step of the process was thoroughly and professionally explained; the escrow and closing went as smoothly as could be possible. Thank you Erik and Romy for going so over and above in your helpfulness to us. We value your friendship." - Barbara

They have excellent connections and knowledge of the local market, as well as excellent professional expertise and impeccable integrity. We were able to complete the sale, while being remote, within 45 days. Erik and Romy coordinated and handled all of the details, making the process go very smoothly for us and achieving success. Erik and Romy excel at communication, being well organized and making it all happen by working seamlessly with all the contacts and parties in the process. The quality of their service, communications, guidance and expertise is top notch. We can absolutely recommend Erik and Romy Jacobson, wholeheartedly." - Jpief

"If you want the most beautiful buying experience of your life then you NEED to call Erik and Romy! I’m not one to write reviews about anything but this was a must! Erik and Romy are absolute pros, and the super bonus is they are great people too. Making a purchase when you aren’t living on island can be a bit intimidating and down right stressful. Not with these two! When they say they live here and know the area, they really do! They went above and beyond to help us find the perfect spot so we can build our dream home. They scouted out properties and gave us very detailed information so we could make an informed decision. Once we narrowed it down, we came over and pulled the trigger on the perfect piece of land. I cannot recommend them highly enough. You will not be disappointed, it’s just not possible. Every i is dotted and every t is crossed. This was the easiest, most comfortable buying experience we’ve ever had. We will be purchasing more properties through Erik and Romy!" - Carol Dunn
