Hawaiian island real estate - Mike Bates experienced Hawaii realtor

www.hawaiihomes1.com [cached]

Mike Bates is an experienced Hawaii realtor associate with Shirokiya Residential Estates in Honolulu. He's lived on Oahu since 1982 and has also lived on Maui, the Big Island (Hawaii) and Molokai. Familiarity with Hawaii's different cultures, geographies and employment markets make Mike and his real estate team suited to assist you.

...
Mike works full time in real estate and puts his customers in the driver's seat, getting the best values for buyers and sellers!
...
Mike is a high-tech realtor, adopting new and innovative trends for selling homes. His seller tools will help you get the best selling price for your home. Visit our Hawaii homesellers page for more information.
...
We want you to know how great Mike Bates was in helping us buy our condominium at Makaha Beach Cabanas. We closed and took possession of our condo on September 5, 2014. His knowledge, personality and communication skills are exemplary. He treated us with the highest degree of respect and made us feel comfortable working with him and trusting him. Mike is a true professional in every sense of the word. He is also a really nice person.
...
Mike was great in assisting us on a short sale of our house in Kaneohe. Mike is a true professional and I would recommend him to everyone who wants to buy or sell their house on Oahu.
...
A superb performance by Mr. Mike Bates! Of the five homes I have bought throughout the US within the last 15 years, Mike stands out as the best buyer/seller agent that I have worked with. He made the whole process buying/selling as easy and convenient as possible even though I was stationed in Germany. In addition, he was able to sell my condo in less than a month, for more than the asking price and by a buyer who paid in cash. I have interviewed three seller agents before I went with Mike, and every seller agent either refused to sell my property or thought I should sell my condo as a short sale. Mike's professionalism and dedication didn't stop there. Mike continuously showed me numerous postings of different places that I wanted and was always willing to help me with whatever I needed to select a home for me and my wife to retire.
...
I interviewed several quality realtors and Mike stood out from the group. He seemed knowledgeable of the market, deliberate in his statements - sticking to the facts, and extremely patient in finding and showing me properties that fit my needs. In the end, he located a wonderful beachfront condo at a great price, in a market with limited inventory. I move in soon.
...
Mike is the BEST Realtor I have ever worked with!! Hands down!!!
He goes above and beyond with everyone. No task is too large or too small for him. He is extremely professional, efficient, courteous and an AWESOME communicator!!! He has my highest recommendation.
...
Mike Bates is a great realtor, really the best! I was extremely impressed with his knowledge, his responsiveness, and his patience. I was unfamiliar with HI real estate when we began, but Mike took the time to show me a wide range of properties all around Oahu and give me a confident sense of the options for a retirement apartment in my price range. When I finally selected a co-op, he helped me understand the intricacies of co-ops, served as go-between, and got prompt answers to all of my questions. He also went out of his way to be helpful in many other ways. Mike is reliable, trustworthy, always courteous, and also a very nice guy.
...
Mike Bates was instrumental in keeping the communications flowing between the different groups and met all deadlines. My purchase of a 3 bedroom townhome at Ocean Pointe went beyond expectations. The short sale that I anticipated taking a long time to process, was completed within 3 months. Thank You Mike Bates!

Mike Bates was the agent acting on my behalf in my purchase at Ko Olina Fairways. He was very responsive, knowledgeable and provided a good sounding board. I also appreciated his follow up after the sale.

I knew Mike Bates from prior years of doing triathlons He trained hard and raced hard! Like in those years of triathlons, Mike continues to bring that work hard ethic to his customer service in the business of real estate. He worked with me to find the perfect place on the east side of Oahu. He was very accessible and patient with my constant calls and emails. He will definitely work with you to find that right place as well, he'll work hard for you like the Ironman he is. Thanks Mike!!!"
...
I was fortunate to have Mike Bates as my realtor in the recent selling of my Honolulu house. My place was in a unusual location on the mountainside. We knew it would be difficult to market; it would require a unique buyer with the imagination to fully see the potential. Of course, this was all happening during the height of the recent economic recession. And when things looked tough, Mike was still there with optimism and determination - and we did find that unique buyer.
...
I'm so grateful for the excellent service that Mike provided.
...
I'd like to state my appreciation for all the hard work Mike Bates put into finding and helping us purchase our townhome. He was very patient and courteous in showing us many possible properties, until we finally found what we liked. His continued efforts made our purchase go smoothly. My wife and I look forward to living in our new Ewa Beach townhome. I would certainly recommend Mike to anyone looking to buy, or sell a property.

Mike went far above and beyond what should be expected from a seller's agent. He cleared construction debris from the yard and interacted with Honolulu City and County officials, addressing issues related to the sale of my home in Punaluu. He did all of these things with absolute professionalism.
...
Yay! It has been terrific working with you, Mike, you really now your business and have made it so easy and comfortable for us.
...
Mike helped me find a townhome in Pearl City for $245,000 when comparable units were selling for $300,000. I also didn't have anyone here and Mike being the friend that he was helped me move and answered all my questions and led me down the right path for something along the way. Now I have the place like I want it for now and am lucky I went with Mike.
...
My husband and I really enjoyed working with Mike, I think the main reason is because unlike many other realtors, Mike is not a real talker, he is a real listener. Where most realtors really try to 'sell' you a house, Mike really tried to find you the right house.
He was patient and explained everything we needed to know in layman's term and really helped us understand the process and pro's and con's of each home we saw. With Mike's help we now have our cute home in Palolo and will definitely seek out his help again shall we ever be in the housing market again, whether it is to sell our current home or to buy a second home.
We would definitely recommend Mike to be your realtor! Try him! You will love the experience as well. Thanks so much Mike!

I was fortunate to have Mike Bates as my realtor in the recent selling of my Honolulu house. My place was in a unusual location on the mountainside. We knew it would be difficult to market; it would require a unique buyer with the imagination to fully see the potential. Of course, this was all happening during the height of the recent economic recession. And when things looked tough, Mike was still there with optimism and determination - and we did find that unique buyer.
...
I'm so grateful for the excellent service that Mike provided.

I'd like to state my appreciation for all the hard work Mike Bates put into finding and helping us purchase our townhome. He was very patient and courteous in showing us many possible properties, until we finally found what we liked. His continued efforts made our purchase go smoothly. My wife and I look forward to living in our new Ewa Beach townhome. I would certainly recommend Mike to anyone looking to buy, or sell a property.

Mike went far above and beyond what should be expected from a seller's agent. He cleared construction debris from the yard and interacted with Honolulu City and County officials, addressing issues related to the sale of my home in Punaluu. He did all of these things with absolute professionalism.
...
Yay! It has been terrific working with you, Mike, you really now your business and have made it so easy and comfortable for us.

Mike helped me find a townhome in Pearl City for $245,000 when comparable units were selling for $300,000. I also didn't have anyone here and Mike being the friend that he was helped me move and answered all my questions and led me down the right path for something along the way. Now I have the place like I want it for now and am lucky I went with Mike.
...
My husband and I really enjoyed working with Mike, I think the main reason is because unlike many other realtors, Mike is not a real talker, he is a real listener. Where most realtors really try to 'sell' you a house, Mike really tried to find you the right house.
He was patient and explained everything we needed to know in layman's term and really helped us understand the process and pro's and con's of each home we saw. With Mike's help we now have our cute home in Palolo and will definitely seek out his help again shall we ever be in the housing market again, whether it is to sell our current home or to buy a second home.
We would definitely recommend Mike to be your realtor! Try him! You will love the experience as well. Thanks so much Mike!
