Tell Us Your Story

We met Joe Hogin on our first vacation to Maui.

We had begun to talk about retirement at the time and found ourselves near his office with a little time on our hands, and wandered in. Although we were half serious about looking at properties to buy at that minute, Joe gave us his full attention. Within a day he homes for us to view, one of which became our second home due to his expert professional practice. Although we currently live on the mainland, Joe made our home purchase seamless and practical. His cheerful demeanor made him easy to work with. His Realty provided everything to meet our needs. HIs knowledge helped us navigate our purchase with ease. I would highly recommend Joe as a skilled professional who will make home buying a breeze.

Joe was very professional in our buying process.

He Answered all my calls and did the necessary prep work, which was making us aware of prior sales history and requirements to purchase a home in Maui. I fully recommend Joe and will continue to work with him on future home purchases.

My wife and I have worked with many realtors, having moved around many times.

Joe Hogan is the best by far. Joe has helped us out by going above and beyond what any realtor is called to do. Extremely personable, Joe gives full attention to what you need.

Joe Hogin is AWESOME!

I just cannot describe him anyother way! He is just fabulous not only in his professional life but also his personal life! He is so patient and takes the time to answer all of our dumb questions sometimes repeating himself often without ever becoming frustrated or rushing us with questions, answers, suggestions. I keep asking him to marry me but he refuses......😀

Louise Alborano (Condo Owner)

Damaris Jensen ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ If you are looking for a Realtor with fast response times, great sense of humor, goes above and beyond for their clients, and even personalizes your experience by sending thoughtful videos and pictures of Maui just to check in, Joe is the one for you.

Even in the crazy times of 2020, Joe was steady, thorough, and extremely helpful to us in realizing our dream of owning a little piece of paradise in Maui. From video walk throughs, to helping us navigate the challenges of purchasing from a distance, Joe was by our side, listened to us and answered every extra question we had.

From the first interaction, Tamra has been the greatest support in my home buying journey.

She is detailed oriented, friendly, understanding, a great listener, and a hard worker. I am incredibly lucky to have had her on my team! Tamra understood my needs and wants immediately and never put any pressure on me. She was so well organized and answered all my questions with a smile (even when I asked the same question over and over again). She put me in touch with all the right people and I ended up closing on the home of my dreams. Thanks Tamra!!

Joe is a professional in every sense of the word.

His skill in navigating the real estate market was key in getting the best price possible and closing the sale of our house in half the expected time. Homes in our neighborhood that listed weeks before we did are still pending, for example. Without a doubt, Joe was the key to this successful transaction. Mahalo Joe, for helping us set up for our next great adventure. A Hui Hou, Wesley and Jodie Mundy

Joe was wonderful.

Not only did he spend most of a week with us as we viewed properties, but since our purchase he has regularly texted me to check up on everything from problems or issues to just seeing how we are doing with our new property. He was also very involved in helping with the Title company and closing, right down to the end. I would highly recommend Joe, and will have him represent me again in the future!

Traci Birch

Selling our condo when we were not on Maui seemed to have some challenges.

. Joe Hogin, as our broker made the process seem so much easier. He was always quick to answer any questions we had. His marketing of our condo was very professional, especially his video's of our unit. During our closing process again Joe was always helping us when it came to working with those involved with the closing paperwork. I would recommend Joe Hogin highly when someone wants personalized service in buying or selling a home. Mahalo Joe

We couldn't have asked for a better experience!

We first met Joe during a vacation to Maui when he showed us some properties. When it came time to get serious about finding a place to live several months later, Joe was very prompt with responding and viewing properties remotely for us until we found the condo we wanted. Joe has extensive knowledge of Maui real estate, as well as world class customer service skills. If we ever need to find a different property, Joe will 110% be our agent. Mahalo!

Marc Mosiman (Sales Manager)

Joe is an amazing realtor.

It had been a dream of my husband and myself to own property in Hawaii but for years the timing wasn’t right. My husband passed away and I decided to make that dream come true. Joe helped me every step of the way. He worked hard to find just the right property. I live out of state so I trusted Joe and his knowledge. He Always answered me right away when I called with my many many questions. He walked me thru the process from beginning to the end. This 40 year dream of mine and my husbands would not have happened without his knowledge, honesty and dedication to his work. Thank you Joe!!

We worked with Joe Hogan from the mainland purchasing a condo in Maui.

Joe was efficient, accommodating, and professional in every way. He made sure that we understood what was going on every step of the way. Joe was communicative and careful answering all our questions regarding some of the terms and language we needed clarification with as we were in Washington State. Joe has gone "the extra mile " for us ensuring a smooth transition as new owners of or Maui condo. We would welcome the opportunity to work with Joe again and highly recommend him as premier representation for any buyer or seller.

whether buying or selling Joe Hogan's knowledge and understanding of the markets on Maui is second to none I've done two deals with him he was able to find me the perfect property at the right price and help me get it closed lickety-split.

George did a great job understanding our needs and desires for selling our house and gave us honest feedback on his thoughts while taking into account the emotions involved when selling a home.

He was always available to answer questions, meet with us at a moment’s notice, and complete the sale after we left the island. I highly recommend George to anyone who wants a honest and easy to work with local realtor who will guide you through the process of buying or selling a home!

We couldn’t believe how fast he was able to find a buyer for our home. There was literally not one single problem during the whole process, it went absolutely smoothly!

Joe is a very personable agent.

He listened to all our requirements for a property in Maui. Every property that we were interested in, he made sure to show it on a video tour and provide all the details we requested. He is very responsive and communicates everything very clearly. Joe made sure the whole escrow signing and closing was seamless and he helped is get it done on time. We are very happy with his services and truly enjoyed the buying journey.

APARNA KONDAGUNTA

I was frustrated with another agent and actually removed my listing from the MLS.

Joe came riding in like the calvary. I had a difficult condo to sell due to leasehold, HOA, management, etc. He found me an ALL CASH buyer, then assisted with non-resident exemption at escrow. Great agent, great communication, knowledgeable representation.

Carolyn Butterfield (Real Estate Investor)

JOE IS AWESOME!

Very responsive, knowledgeable and easy to work with.

Truman Taoka (Associate Director of Events, Hyatt Regency Maui)

I just sold another house using Tamra and she was on top of it!

There was so much coordinating back & forth with the buyers as they were having a hard time closing the loan. However we were able to get a local family into our newly renovated house and cottage. So grateful to have her represent a great win win situation for everyone????

Zasha Smith (Real Estate Investor)

Tamra is very responsive and proactive.

Her remarkable work ethics and timely communication truly show in the ease of transaction flow. Tamra balances business and people very well in the sense that she puts forth all that is important to her client to make a business transaction happen smoothly and in a timely fashion. Great working with you Tamra! To many more!

I've had numerous real estate experiences over the years, but I have never worked with a Real Estate agent with the professional qualities and the level of personal caring that I received from Joe Hogin.

My wife and I are not currently living on the Island and feel in love with a property. Joe has helped us navigate the negotiation, purchase, and all of the process through Escrow with great expertise, compassion, and responsiveness. This deal would not have happened were it not for Joe. I cannot recommend Joe Hogin highly enough for anyone serious about completing a real estate transaction on Maui.

Erin Frank Pascua

I am extremely happy with the way George handled the sale of my property on Maui.

He was very responsive to all my questions and needs and his communication skills is bar none. There wasn't a time when he didn't promptly answer my calls. When he didn't have the answers to my concerns, he got it no later than the next day. I never hesitated to call him because he is a sincere and caring person. He demonstrated his knowledgeable in real estate dealings although he is relatively new with the business. It showed he is a learner, bright, very competent and fair. If you are looking for a person who has integrity, is hard working, cares about his client and communicates well. George is the person you can trust. I can say this because I live on the neighbor island and I depended on George a lot during the process. I would not hesitate one minute to use George again as my realtor and highly recommend him if you need to buy or sell a property.

Lloyd Uradomo (I'm a owner of a rental that George helped me sell.)

Joe is such a pleasure to work with.

He was very responsive and professional during the whole transaction. The roof had an issue after heavy rain 5 days before closing. He was able to present sound bids from several roofing contractors within 2 days. With that support, we get a reasonable repair credit from the bank. Thanks for everything Joe. You are the best!
