"On my first call to Kelly, I introduced myself as a "mission impossible". Her reply: "Oh, that's my specialty" ! She was right about that, and I have purchased the perfect home for me. As a first time home buyer, I had lots of questions. Kelly was always available. She was unflappable through all the complications we encountered in the process. To say I wouldn't have made it without her, is a huge understatement! She is diligent, thorough and worked hard to make this happen for me. It is a pleasure to work with her." - Allison
"Kelly Shaw is an amazing realtor and we highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in Hawaii County. Our search took several months but she insisted throughout the process that we would find the perfect home for our family. Once we had an accepted offer, Kelly fought hard to ensure the contract was upheld and always looked out for our best interest. She knows her job and does it extremely well. We have complete trust in Kelly Shaw and will use her again and again!" - Jessie
"Kelly did an amazing job selling our house. She was professional and very thorough. There was nothing for us to do. She took care of everything. It should be obvious to any who works with Kelly, she cares about your success in either the sell or the purchase of a property. I could write pages outlining the reasons you should use her as your next realtor. But the best way for you to know is to give her a call." - Kevin and Becky
"Kelly helped us sell a home on the island after we moved back to the mainland. We gave her a call following a horrible experience with another realtor and she was very understanding that we were nervous about working with someone else long distance. She was amazing and responsive throughout the process and worked to help us even before we had signed a contract. She managed numerous local interactions on our behalf and went above and beyond what we would expect from any professional realtor. Thank you for being there Kelly, you are a blessing!"
"Kelly jumped on our first meeting and with short notice, had a list of properties for us to look at. She quickly zeroed in on our needs and even though that first trip didn't produce an accepted offer, she kept working while we were back on the mainland, sending us potential listings, visiting the properties for us and sharing photos via conf. calls, etc. When a home came on the market that we initially passed by, she brought its features to our attention, based upon her visit and it turned out to be the home we ended up purchasing. Throughout the escrow process, Kelly was on top of everything, did everything and anything we asked of her and helped us through the new experience of buying in Hawaii. We had dealings with several realtors before Kelly, but once we met her, we knew she was the one to work with in Kona. Her knowledge of the area and of just what life is like there was invaluable in helping us make this big decision!" - Laura
