Relocating to Hawaii is uniquely challenging. With our full range of complimentary destination and concierge services, whether it’s a short or long term stay, for individuals, families or full teams, we focus on taking care of everything with just one simple point of contact.
1) Destination Services
Our Destination Services include just about everything that gets you or your employees from one destination to another.
Services include: Area Orientation, Real Estate Market Statistics, Home Search Process, Home Selling Services, Short and Long-Term Rental Assistance, Spousal Career Counseling Assistance, School Search, Lenders, Settlement/Escrow Services, Settling-In Services, Estimated Moving Costs, Pet Relocation and more.
2) Concierge Services
Our complimentary Concierge Services make your or your recruits and employees’ visits more time-efficient and enjoyable.
Services include: Discounted Rates For Travel/Flights Hotel Stays, Car Rentals, Restaurants, and Local Activities. We can arrange for Baby-Sitters, Grocery Shopping Or Delivery Service, Tour Guides, and additional services by request.
3) Interim Housing Assistance and Area Tours
Oftentimes, it is necessary and beneficial to find temporary, interim housing until such time that your home has sold and closed in your departure city. It also allows you time to research and tour neighborhoods you may have interest in purchasing a home in here in Hawaii.
As such, we highly recommend you utilize our Interim Housing Assistance and Area Tours Program. One of our licensed sales agents will research, screen, and pre-qualify suitable rental properties based upon your criteria and budget. This includes those that allow pets and have dedicated parking, which not all do. You will be shown all suitable properties in the areas of interest, which includes area tours to get you oriented with different neighborhoods and amenities. A reasonable fee is charged per day for this service, which helps tremendously in getting you settled quickly and smoothly. Most often we are able to find something for you in 1 to 3 days depending on how many areas you want to look in. Please contact us for further details about this service.

What My Clients Say
Working with Sarah is like pushing the Easy Button!
— Beth Whitehead, Executive Vice Presidnt, Chief Administrative Officer, American Savings Bank
Happy holidays to you and your family! I just wanted to drop you a quick note and thank you and Ashley for the wonderful experience. After some great options to choose from I decided on the 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit at 1778 Ala Moana as my temporary home. While the finishes are dated, the views and proximity to the beach are perfect! Mom is going to love her visits in the new year!
Finally, I just wanted to say Ashley was wonderful!! She made the stressful process such a breeze and was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Please pass along to her what a pleasure it was and the fantastic job she did. Again, much thanks to you and your team.
