My father had been thinking of selling his home and started interacting with Steven Ellison a year-and-a-half ago. (Anyone who can tolerate my father's lovable idiosyncracies for that long is already pretty amazing.) When I first met Steven, I immediately picked up on his, for lack of a better word, goodness. That is an important factor when you are entrusting someone to handle what is possibly your largest and most important life investment. Steven had given my father a lot of good ideas and referrals in the past year on how to prepare his house for sale; according to Steven, that service is one of the things that the team does well that distinguis...— Crystal C.
My dad needed to do a 1031 exchange and wanted to invest in a rental property on the Big Island. He was referred to Steve, and we are so grateful that we had Steve on our side. Steve answered our many, many emails in a very timely manner. He met with us via phone for really long conversations, and patiently answered all of our questions. My dad and I then made a strike mission from the mainland to view the dozens of properties we had identified. Steve had helped us narrow down our list a lot--after really listening to what my dad wanted--but we still had a long list because we wanted to rule everything out on our own. We literally saw 25 units in 2....— Ellen M.
I am so happy to write a review for Steven Ellison. For a year and a half I looked at property online in Kailua Kona to familiarize myself with the market. When it was time to pick a realtor I had no references so relied on the internet and my intuition because I had nothing else. I kept coming back to Steven Ellison.

When we finally met I was a bit concerned because I needed my husband to feel the same way about him as I felt and it was a slam dunk. They hit it off right away. We came in with what we wanted and/or needed in...— Ann E.
Steven Ellison is fabulous! To familiarize myself with the market in Kailua Kona I researched property for over a year. I had no recommendations for an agent so had to rely on the Internet and my gut since I had nothing else. I kept coming back to Steven Ellison. When I finally called him I was very happy I did. He is very professional and sincere. His heart is in the right place and wants to do a good job. My husband was equally impressed with him but in my opinion it’s hard to imagine someone who is not. After we met for a couple of hours in his office he set up a list of homes for us to see and everyone involved was on time and was genuinely happ...— Buyer
Doesn't get any better! Steve is the best realtor that exists! He goes the extra mile all the time! He took us back to the very first house, we saw on the big island and helped us get the property! Two years later since we are not there, he continues to help us with any and everything we need to know! He always makes you feel relaxed and as if you are his only client! We are so fortunate we know him. Not only is he a true professional but also a very special person!— Ellen G.
