My husband and I worked with Christina and her mother, Yumi, from 2009-2013; they've represented us as both buyers and sellers, and we are convinced that the excellent outcomes from both of these transactions are directly related to their professional skills and their dedication to us as customers. In 2009, Christina and Yumi represented us as buyers, and with their help, we were able to purchase a condo that fit our needs perfectly. When we decided to put an offer in on the condo, Christina and Yumi worked around our hectic schedule and allowed us to meet with them late in the evening to get our offer submitted as soon as possible. Because the seller was considering multiple offers, they wrote a cover letter to help our chances. Christina kept us up to date on any developments and took care of any urgent paperwork using DocuSign to make it convenient for us as her clients. Overall, I believe that we were chosen as the buyers in that situation because of Christina and Yumi's professionalism, organization, knowledge in their field, and strong connections and relationships within the real estate business in Hawaii. In 2013, when Christina and Yumi represented us as sellers, we were astounded with the results! They recommended that we list our place for more than we were originally thinking; they believed that the market at that time would support a higher listing price. We trusted their experience and knowledge and ended up listing at a higher price. Christina came to our condo, took preliminary photos, and spoke with us about how our unit would show best. The next day, she arrived at our home and staged the entire unit beautifully (while still making sure that it was functional for us as a home base while they were doing showings and walk-throughs). She took high-quality photos and sent out invitations in the mail to our first open house - and when the open house was held, she brought appetizers and refreshments for the potential buyers. We received multiple competitive offers within a week, and we closed shortly after with a buyer who offered our full listing price (much higher than we were expecting!). Overall, working with Christina and Yumi as our realtors was an ideal experience. They are hardworking, trustworthy, punctual, and professional. They made both transactions virtually stress-free for us; they walked us through all our questions, concerns, and the necessary paperwork easily. I would highly recommend Christina and Yumi to anyone in Hawaii looking to buy or sell.
My experience with Yumi and Christina was off the charts! I have purchased 3 homes and by far this was the most positive experience of all my transactions. Yumi's 30+ years of solid experience came to light with her excellent knowledge from the neighborhood comparisons to helpful guidance and reassurance with all my questions. Christina was right on mark getting back to me and in constant communication with all involved, I never felt for a moment that I was alone in the whole process. And I thank you!
Yumi Laney and Christina Laney Mitre did an exceptional job on selling our home. They staged it so nicely and were always there to answer all of our questions. We had our open house on June 19th and had an offer the next day and we accepted it! We closed so fast on July 31st! We are so lucky to have Yumi and Christina as our Realtors. Yumi sold us this house in 1987 and still finding and selling other properties to me!
