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 distinguishes them from the other real estate agents in the area. They are also known for their integrity - which is not something to take lightly if you know what harmful things unscrupulous agents can do at your expense. I really appreciated Steven sa…

They are also known for their integrity - which is not something to take lightly if you know what harmful things unscrupulous agents can do at your expense. I really appreciated Steven saying he would never pressure his clients. He wanted his clients to feel comfortable with the whole process. He sincerely put forward his philosophy that "the client's interests come first". That was evident from how he approached working with my father, who, before I met him, described him to me as sincere. You may invariably meet real estate agents where it begins to become apparent they aren't putting your concerns first; you may start to feel that they are only interested in their commission. If that is the case, please make arrangements to meet Steven!

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 2.5 days, and Steve had them all organized and planned. I can't even imagine the amount of time he must have put in to create that schedule! The funny thing is that Steve told me which complex he thought we'd like best and it IS where my dad end…

The funny thing is that Steve told me which complex he thought we'd like best and it IS where my dad ended up purchasing, but Steve was so kind and patient and continued to show us condo after condo until we made the final determination. Steve was so thoughtful that he even carried cold drinks and snacks in the car for us. He showed us beaches and restaurants and everything we needed to know to really familiarize ourselves with the area. He also really knows his stuff when it comes to 1031 exchanges and purchasing vacation rentals. We talked to some agents over there who had no idea about potential upcoming laws putting limits or fees on rentals in some zones, and Steve knew all about it so he could steer us in the right direction. If you want a professional, kind, very organized agent, look no further.

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. I called him and immediately liked him. There was never a moment where I questioned his sincerity, ability or professionalism. 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 a home and he took the information and set up a day of homes for us to see. He did such a great job!

He timed it out so well that I actually felt refreshed after a very long day. He is a walking encyclopedia so managed to answer every question we had on a variety of topics. He is the kind of person you want to be around because of his positive attitude, sense of humor and professionalism. He's not pushy in any way and gets the job done. Agents have a very important job and to find a good one who excels in so many ways is not easy. I consider him a friend and know that it's our good fortune to have found him. He is really special. I highly recommend Steven Ellison to help you purchase or sell your home. You need to feel comfortable and taken care of. Steven is your man!

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 happy to see Steven when he rolled up. (He makes a full on breakfast including waffles at his open houses!) What could’ve felt like a very long day was actually quite invigorating! He was able to answer all of our questions and not all of them wer…

He was able to answer all of our questions and not all of them were easy. He has a wonderful sense of humor and a very positive attitude along with his professionalism. Agents have a very important job to do and I had complete confidence in his work. I now consider him a friend and feel so fortunate to have found him. I highly recommend Steven Ellison to purchase or sell a home.

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!
