"I really can’t say enough about the incredible experience I had in listing and selling my home with Tom Presler. I’m very particular and it’s difficult for me to find trustworthy professionals that meet my standards. Tom exceeded my expectations in every case. His excellent communication and deep knowledge of his industry and the real estate market on Oahu, strong relationships with service providers, attention to detail and quality, super-hard work ethic, and empathy were more than I could have imagined. He is the consummate professional and I’m truly grateful that I met him and entrusted him with my transaction, I could not have asked for more. Besides that, he is a super-nice guy and wonderful person. Thank you so much to Tom for everything." - Susan Constantinides

"Over the past 15 years, my wife and I have bought and sold many properties. From our first contact with Tom to the final closing, Tom was one of the best agents we have ever worked with. He lined up and showed us a number of properties that met our criteria, then helped talk through the various pros and cons of each unit to narrow our choices to make a decision, and then went “above and beyond” to help review and point out important terms and conditions in all the homeowners documents – house rules, financial statements, buy-laws, etc. Throughout the process, Tom was very communicative and worked diligently to resolve any and all concerns to our satisfaction. We highly recommend him!" - Jerry & Katherine Brocklehurst


★★★★★
"We used Tom twice, when we were first looking for a house in Kailua and used him again three years later when we moved back to the mainland and needed to sell the house. He was fantastic for both transactions. We have bought and sold many houses over the years due to career moves and Tom is by far the best realtor we have ever worked with. He is a straight shooter, extremely professional at all times, totally responsive and always goes beyond expectations. Seven years later and we still compare every sales person we deal with to Tom, and no one can top him, he is simply the best." - Sharon & Jim Thomson


★★★★★
"Living in CA, selling a condo in Hawaii, was not going to be a cake walk. But that was my thought before contacting Tom. Tom handled my Hawaii realty transaction with such expertise, knowledge, & diligence! It was easier than buying a car! Tom was always available to answer my questions & to guide me. He was able to facilitate all things that involved this transaction from recommendations for moving companies to the final doc signing. Though my experience in selling the condo is bittersweet, things change in life. But thanks to Tom, this chapter of my life was most pleasant. It was a joy to interact with him & his capable and knowledgeable team. Mahalo Nui Loa Tom!" - Sheila Young


★★★★★
"Tom Presler surpassed our expectations. He helped us purchase the home we are reside in now and knew that Tom would again represent us well with our sale. His professionalism and knowledge of the market is the basis of our trust in him. He will come highly recommended to everyone we know and we plan to retain his services again when we are ready with our next transaction." - Jaimme & Wade Hayakawa


★★★★★
"Tom is a pleasure to work with. He explained everything in a way that made it so easy to understand. This was especially helpful because it was my first time selling a property, and he made the whole process easy and painless. I really appreciated his help and patience. He’s very personable and extremely knowledgeable. I trusted him completely and he delivered on everything he said he would do. He got me a great price and great results. I really enjoyed working with Tom and would work with him again. Thanks for everything, Tom!" - Darren Matsuda


★★★★★
"Tom just helped finish the purchase of our second condo. We were really blown away with the above and beyond service he offered. Tom helped us find a property that fit our unique situation, and helped us through challenging situations with the developers. He fought for us even after closing to ensure the developer followed through on promises. Thank you again Tom for all your hard work!" - Patrick & Tomomi Gartside


★★★★★
"Tom was recommended to us by a close friend who had been our real estate agent for over 45 years and is now retired. Tom did not fail to meet our expectations nor the recommendation of our dear friend. At our initial meeting Tom impressed us with his research of our property and the real estate market, although unsolicited, and his no pressure approach to assist us in selling our home on Oahu. He sought out our needs and goals and followed up in subsequent meetings to ensure he was on target with our plan to relocate from Hawaii. He was always responsive and thorough to our email requests for information. Tom worked with us for over a year as we contemplated our move. He made excellent recommendations and was very accommodating to our specific concerns and needs. We are very appreciative of the time Tom devoted to satisfactorily assisting us with selling our home. He was spot on with his responses. We would use Tom Presler as our real estate agent and would highly recommend him to others. Tom is truly service-oriented." - Carl & Sandy Chun


★★★★★
"Tom did a fantastic job of helping us from start to finish. He was great in communicating with us and the seller and helped us through a transaction which had more complicated matters than we anticipated. Our only issue was with the website. It has challenges when entering search parameters (such as building names) in the search box. It seems to have a lag in pulling up the options (via Java script) causing problems if the search button is pushed." - Patrick & Dayna Matsumoto


★★★★★
"Thru the many years we’ve bought and sold homes with Tom being our Realtor; he’s always very thorough, reliable and proactive. Most recently, Tom came thru again for us with the sell of our luxury home. We were off island majority of the time and he took care of our home as if it was his own. When we received multiple offers, he meticulously provided the pros and cons for each contract. He didn’t stop there, as he gave us a summary sheet to easily compare all the numbers and with that we were able to decide what offer worked best for us. Whether it’s a condo or home he’s sold for us, Tom reaches out to the best stagers, photographers, and/or videographers to highlight our homes. He has showcased our homes on local news channels to high end publications. Most importantly is his expertise in negotiation and precise terminology with writing up contracts to help us get top dollar for our homes as well as the best price for purchasing homes. Tom’s exemplary customer service and being able to trust him is why we keep going back all these years." - Jen & Steve Wayte
