I would highly recommend John Greene to anyone! He was more than a realtor, he was and is a friend. John's knowledge of the real estate market on Oahu was truly impressive. He was so helpful in every way; going above and beyond on countless occasions. I've used many realtors and purchased many pieces of property in my life. John was among the very best I've had the pleasure of working with. I've already recommended him to several of my close friends without hesitation. I'll certainly use his services again. I'm a business owner myself, and I am very conscious about customer service, professionalism, and a high level of trust. You simply can't go wrong, and you will be well served, by using John Greene for any real estate need you may have on Oahu. I offer my highest recommendation!
John was the perfect agent! He has a thorough knowledge of the area and was able to guide us expertly on the "right unit". My husband and I were on the mainland and John was always in touch with us on a timely basis. He managed to complete a deal for us at a great price. We highly recommend him!
John is a very knowledgeable and experienced realtor who is always responsive to the needs and demands of his clients. He goes above and beyond and is not pushy like a lot of realtors can be. He is wonderful to work with, and always has a positive attitude! I recommend him highly without any reservation!
Aloha, my name is Lorraine and I am the Hawaii Pacific Regional Director of Operations here in Hawaii for SOS Security LLC. While looking to relocate some of our business to the Hawaiian Islands, I came across a listing for office space downtown, and we were running out of time to open our doors. I spoke with Mr. John Greene almost immediately after inquiring about this office space. We had dealt with so many shady character's in the real estate business, it was finally nice to meet someone with integrity. John assisted me with the procurement of the office space for sublease at Central Pacific Plaza, in downtown Honolulu. Professional and expedient from start to finish of the transaction, he makes things happen. I would highly recommend John Greene in any real estate transaction!
John is extremely professional. He has showed me many properties and submitted multiple offers on my behalf. He was patient and knowledgeable about values etc. He is always on time, and does his homework.
John Greene is definitely the best Real Estate Professional in Hawaii, and one of the best worldwide! We met John during a trip to Hawaii in 2015, and since then he has helped us in both purchasing and selling our unit in Waikiki. John's expertise in this area is unparalleled, and he was able to lead us to a quick sale in every aspect. The pictures of our unit were of the highest quality, the buyers he provided were excellent, and overall, John was a pleasure to work with throughout both the buying and selling of our unit. I could not recommend him higher!
My family found John Greene through the Internet. He was chosen after speaking to several other brokers, some who didn’t respond back to our calls in a timely manner, or were either somewhat evasive or hesitant to answer our specific questions directly. John was always forthright and open. He had this ease and “chill” about him which was conveyed even over the phone. We just sensed good vibes about him over the phone. When we finally met him in person, he was everything and more. My family was looking for a 1031 property exchange and time was of the essence. We found a property in Honolulu that we were interested in through the internet. Unfortunately, John was leaving for his vacation overseas. We were planning to fly out to Honolulu the day he was returning from his trip. John was our Godsend. We conveyed our interest in this property and wanted to make an offer. John said once he arrived to his destination overseas he would be in contact with us. True to his word, he contacted us. He drew up the contract offer and emailed it to us to review and sign. We felt bad for John as he was on vacation and his first night was spent staying up from 4:30 a.m. to 6:30 a.m. drawing up the contract, emailing us, revising some terms followed with more emailing. He was also emailing the seller’s broker in Hawaii. Then the counter-offer was emailed back to us in San Francisco. Although John was constantly dealing with three different time zones, he always remained “chill”. He remained totally unflappable. My family and I finally flew to Honolulu and met John. We all liked him instantly. He arranged to show us the property the day after our arrival. He had already pre-arranged for a professional inspection before our arrival in Honolulu. The termite inspection was also scheduled by John. He took care of all aspects of the inspections for us. All we had to do was review the reports and discuss how we wanted to proceed. John was continuously accessible by phone, email and text. Not once did we have to wonder about what’s happening with the deal. He was always responsive, truthful in his opinions, completely informative to help us in arriving at a decision, and truly patient. I did say he was chill. When we accepted the counter-offer and signed the documents, everything went smoothly. Once the deal was completed, John had his repair guy perform all the fixes for us that were pointed out on the inspection report. Thanks to John, we no longer have to dream about owning a slice of heaven in Hawaii because we are now the proud owners of a beautiful 2-bedroom condo in Waikiki! We cannot tout enough about all the wonderful attributes John will bring to any potential buyers or sellers. He is definitely the man! Susan Lee San Francisco, CA.
We got to know John through Zillow in January 2017 when we started looking for an investment property in Honolulu, Hawaii. We started by exchanging emails and phone calls with John who was able to consistently provide very helpful answers to our questions in timely manner. We could tell easily that John knows the local market very well and we had confidence to work him for our purchase in Honolulu. In April 2017, we paid a visit to Honolulu and met with John in person. John took time to show quite a number of properties in Waikiki area and finally helped us to narrow done our search to Trump Waikiki. John was able to get details (including rental income, etc) for all the Trump units we visited which helped a lot for our decision making. When we finally made the offer for one unit, John was able to negotiate a great deal for us. Throughout the purchase and escrow process, John was very responsive to all the questions we had and able to provide very useful information and helpful guidance. Since we live in California, we counted on John to take care of everything for us in Honolulu and he never failed. John also helped to recommend a very good loan agent for us which is much appreciated. Our experience with John has been great. It is really lucky for us to with John who knows the local market very well and demonstrates very respectful professionalism and expertise in real estate. We will definitely work with John again for our next purchase in Hawaii. The Li family in California.
I would absolutely recommend John to anyone looking to purchase a home in Hawaii. I found John online after seeing some highly rated reviews of him and reached out to him regarding representing us in a real estate transaction. John understood our needs, wants, and limitations (we live in CA and were seeking to buy in Waikiki) and was intent on helping us find the perfect property. I had my eye on a condo that had gone into escrow a few weeks before our trip out to Oahu from the mainland, and it just so happened that as we were preparing to fly out, this very same condo fell out of escrow. I immediately contacted John, who was literally at the airport on his way to Tokyo, and he told me he would reach out to the listing agent and get any info he could. John did so while waiting to board his flight to Japan and got us all the information we sought. While John was away in Tokyo, he was able to help us draft an offer for the property and our offer was accepted, all while John was in Japan and we were still in CA. John stayed up at ungodly hours in Japan while ensuring that our transaction would go through. John's responsiveness, his complete transparency in his dealings, and his top notch customer service is what sets him apart from realtors we've worked with in the past. Once we flew to Hawaii, John was incredibly accommodating to our schedule even though he himself was jetlagged having just returned from Tokyo. He took us to see a few condos and gave us a tour of the neighborhoods we might be interested in. In the end, we ended up closing on the condo we had initially expressed interest in and put an offer on. He always had our best interests at heart, especially when it came to our offer price and negotiating for credits. John was more helpful than we could have imagined during the escrow process and even after closing. He arranged to have a handyman fix the minor repairs in our unit and oversaw the completion of it. John has overdelivered on every aspect of his dealings, and I could not recommend him highly enough. He is a professional in every sense of the word, and we could not be more thankful for his guidance. Thank you, John!!
If you need to buy or sell, John Greene is the one for the job as your realtor. I am moving from the mainland to Honolulu and had about two days in Honolulu to find a place. With John's help we did it. I'm thrilled. I've bought and sold many properties in my life and John is the best realtor I've worked with. He stayed completely within my budget and didn't try to get me to buy something I cannot afford. Closing went smooth as could be, we were even able to close early Since I'm on the mainland, John handled everything. Will definitely use him when I move up.
