Some Clients Say.....
"....went above and beyond...."
Buying a condo in Waikiki sight unseen from the mainland could have been a scary, stressful and risky endeavor. But thankfully we had George to manage the transaction and he went above and beyond to help us with every step of the process. Working with him and his team made the whole experience easy and efficient which set our minds at ease immediately. We will definitely return for our future real estate needs. Mahalo George!

"....best realtor I have had."
This is the 6th home purchase of my life and George is by far the best realtor I have had. Passionate, knowledgable and responsive. He's one of the 1 % of people who are at the top of their profession.
John D, New York
"....honesty and knowledge...."
George is a diamond in his profession! His commitment to me as a client is what stood out throughout the experience of purchasing a new home. Coming from someone that works in client service and luxury sales, this is hard to find. I am always looking for someone to give exceptional service, and George truly impressed. From the beginning, George established trust with his honesty and knowledge in each conversation. These are things I value, and he was always made sure to check in, follow up, and communicate throughout each step of the process. I felt well informed at all times and this is really important when making such a big life decision. I found George through the hawaiiliving.com website and I was very fortunate to connect with him. If you want someone that is professional, attentive, and trustworthy, I highly recommend George!
"....educating me on the nuances...."
George did an excellent job educating me on the nuances of Hawaii real estate and helped me find the perfect vacation rental property for my goals.

"....full of competent advice...."
George Krischke was our superb realtor in a transaction we completed earlier this month. He was extremely knowledgeable and full of competent advice as we meandered our way through the buying process in a record 15 days. He has researched and written numerous articles which appear on his web site. His impressive web site is actually how we came to know and use him as our realtor. We recommend him highly.

"....patient and attentive...."
As another reviewer said, George is a diamond! You could not wish for a better realtor for, in my case, buying a condo for the first time. He literally walks you through everything, is more than willing to explain, has all the right tips to offer, is patient and attentive and at your service. He is well-known and well-respected by everyone in the real estate business here. Everyone we dealt with had only good things to say about him. I appreciated his in-depth knowledge of the market in Hawai'i, his honesty, his thoroughness, and last but certainly not least, his friendly manner. A heartfelt mahalo nui to you, George!

“....takes the time to share his knowledge…”
I was looking for a place in Waikiki . I have lived on Kauai for 42 years . I have bought and sold many properties. I came across George's web site Hawaii Living and was able to narrow down my search quite easily. Unbelievable the amount of information on this site. I knew then my search for a Realtor was over. George takes the time to share his knowledge and explain all the things we take for granted. He works seamlessly with others and is well respected by his fellow Realtor's . Simply put George is the best.
"....transparency, honesty and commitment...."
PHENOMENAL. This is not a word that I use lightly and considering this is my first review, this should speak volumes. If I was someone who would write reviews, unfortunately it would be to the tone of warning others of bad experiences that I would warn others to not be in... Coincidentally this is the opposite. George Krischke is deserving of the label phenomenal. He has found his profession, and in my opinion is one of the elites. His website is top-notch, and he makes himself readily available at all hours to ensure that his client’s needs are fulfilled. The process of purchasing your next home is a very significant decision and with that, trust is one of the most important traits in that process… George immediately gained my trust as he proved very shortly that he was thorough throughout our search to find our next residence. If transparency, honesty and commitment are valued with your next residence, than I would highly recommend George and hawaiiliving.com
"....knows the little nuances...."
George helped us purchase an investment condo on Waikiki and I couldn't be happier! It's been a few months and the property is performing better than expected.
First learned about George from his HawaiiLiving.com website. It's a treasure trove of information so be sure to peruse that thoroughly. After deciding it was time to buy, I reached out to George. He suggested a few properties that fit our criteria and when we made offers, he upheld his fiduciary duty to us as buyers. He never overbid and even talked us out of over offering. He made sure the contract terms were favorable to us. Finally, he knows the little nuances that only someone who's been in the business for a long time would understand, like residential versus investment tax structures, individual condo peculiarities/HOA, local politics that could affect rentals, etc.
After closing, George helped set up the property so it would rent. He was so thorough and responsive that I was overly impressed. As a mainland buyer, I was very worried about how this transaction would unfold, but George made it super easy at every step. I didn't even have to fly to Hawaii!
If you're thinking of buying, George is your realtor!
"....nice, easy person to deal with."
We wanted to move back to Hawaii from Washington state so I went on line and found Hawaii Living and principal broker George Krischke. His response was quick, clear and detailed. We flew to Honolulu, he picked us up at the hotel the next day and spent the day showing us possible properties. This is a very difficult market in our category but Goerge spent hours showing us possible properties, making recommendations. He very quickly understood our requirements and was able to save a lot of time.
We finally did find a Condo we wanted to buy and did all the negotiations "long distance" from Washington. We had a difficult seller but George kept us informed and up to date constantly and was able to put the deal together. I would recommend George 100 %. He is very knowledgeable and a professional in every sense of the word . And, besides that, he is a nice, easy persons to deal with!
Michael Parsons - Washington

His top-notched knowledge for his profession helped us to quickly purchase our new home. We are most grateful.

“....most knowledgeable and helpful realtor…”
George Krischke at Hawaii Living is by far the most knowledgeable and helpful realtor I've worked with. Doing a search from mainland, I needed someone who could educate me on the real estate market in Hawaii and guide me through the buying process. Working with George, I had the confidence and peace of mind to complete the transaction. I'd recommend George to anyone and hope to work with him again in the future.
“....you made our dream come true.”
George is fantastic, patient, knowledgeable, very helpful and handled every aspect of our purchase of our Condo in Honolulu. We could not have asked for a better realtor. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to purchase, sell or even rent in Hawaii. Mahalo George you made our dream come true!
George was unfailingly helpful, knowledgeable, and conscientious. Since we were not in Hawaii when buying the condo, we really depended on him to learn about the condo, the building, and Hawaii requirements. He always delivered.
Julia Miller - Saint Louis, MO
George Krischke is one of the most knowledgeable real estate salesman I've ever hired to sell property. If your reading this review wondering who this guy is, stop reading and hire him. Simple as that. George will guide you through all tasks of what it takes to begin selling your property. He will honor your request, educate you, and perform on time and represent you all the way to the finish line. Very incredible salesman. And reasonable rates too. Thanks again George. I will keep in touch when i need to buy or sell another property.
"....at ease throughout the process."
George was extremely helpful with the sell of my condo. Being out-of-state, he made the process less burdensome for me. George's professionalism, expertise, and resourcefulness helped put me at ease throughout the process.
“....exemplary and outstanding.”
I just wanted to let you know, that the service you provided through George Krischke was exemplary and outstanding. We would have never closed this escrow without his patience and knowledge. We will be your client for all our real estate needs, as long as he remains a broker with your company. Both my husband and I can not thank him enough and you can be proud to have a person of that caliber represent you. Thank you.

"We learned a lot from him....."
George was a truly knowledgable realtor that we were blessed to have been able to work with during our first purchase. He was courteous and followed up with us during our hunt. It was a difficult process for us but George was understanding and a joy to work with. George worked so quickly that the whole process passed in a blink of an eye and we had to part ways. We learned a lot from him and would definitely ask him to represent us should we sell.
Mio Shimada - Hong Kong
"Patience and positivity...."
Thanks to George. His experience and reliability enabled us to work through the unique challenges of this home purchase. Patience and positivity are his strong assets. It was assuring to have an agent like George working with us.
Gerald Epp - Vancouver, Canada
“....helpful in overseeing last minute work….”
My husband is from Hawaii but we now live in Minnesota, so when it came time to list our family home in Honolulu, we found George and Hawaii Living on the internet. Although we conducted business from a distance and never met, George was very easy to contact and kept us abreast of all of the details. George was especially helpful in overseeing last minute work with a contractor and staging the property. We got an offer within a week of the open house and closed at the price we expected. We appreciated his hard work and friendliness, and we are happy to recommend his business!!
Peggy Chun - Minnesato
“Throughout, George stuck with me.”
A word about Mr. George Krischke. He is the best. I was not an easy client. It took us two and a half years and my four visits to Oahu to conclude the right purchase. Throughout, George stuck with me. He combined commitment, professionality, candor, and alacrity. And he forged the very positive financing relationship which I was fortunate to establish with a local Federal Credit Union. Mr. Krischke is likewise a gentleman and a scholar. I hold him in high esteem.
“....extremely patient with us….”
George Krischke walked us through the sale of our condo from the beginning to the end. This was our first time selling a property, and he was extremely patient with us and always made us feel comfortable with asking (many!) questions. Not only is George extremely knowledgeable, he is also very motivated in that he helped us stage our home and he hired a professional photographer to help us make our condo look its best when it was time to list and show. In less than a week of listing and only one open house, we were able to accrue FIVE offers over-asking price! Needless to say we were thrilled with our experience with George and we would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a dependable, sincere, and honest realtor. Thank you George!

"....listened to our concerns."
George Krischke of Honolulu HI 5 (now Hawaii Living) helped us remotely sell our Waikiki condo in a short time with little stress. George was patient answering our questions and went above and beyond to help us get a handyman, painter and a carpet installer to get the condo ready to put on the market. We have sold other properties and have worked with a variety of realtors. We found George to be professional, gave excellent advise and listened to our concerns. We will definitely call George when we are ready to buy or sell again in Hawaii. Thank you George.
"....responsive and knowledgeable..."
Excellent service by George, helped us a lot in selling our property in Hawaii. Smooth transaction, very responsive and knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate transactions. I highly recommend his service.

"Without him, it would still be on the market."
George helped me sell my difficult property. He expertly navigated the all the road blocks to get this property closed. Without him, it would still be on the market. I would say to anyone looking for a honest, hard working real estate profession, go with the best. That's why would ONLY use him.

"....excellent and detailed explanations...."
George Krischke has assisted us with buying our first home in Hawaii. It was a pleasure to work with George in buying our home. He’s a very kind and smart person, and also a very knowledgeable real estate broker, with a lot of experiences. He helped us at every step of the way, providing excellent and detailed explanations of our options. He was very thoughtful about where we should position our offer price, based on recent comps and his understanding of the market and the quality of the specific unit. We are extremely happy to have been able to work with George, and will certainly go to him for our next real estate needs. Very highly recommended.
Eveleen Kong - Honolulu, HI
"....essential to our success...."
George Krischke cannot be praised enough for helping us find our dream home in Waikiki. His expertise in the Hawaii real estate market was essential to our success in this endeavor. Throughout escrow, George was there for us on our behalf, steering us through a number of unexpected obstacles as we approached closing. His consummate professionalism, patience and dedication to his clients saw us through what seemed like some stormy seas to us at the time. Today we find ourselves at home in our 33rd floor condominium, awestruck by the views. Thank you George for your exemplary professional service!
Tom Espe - Tuscan, AZ
"....understands this market very well...."
George did a great job identifying condos that met the criteria I mentioned to him. After picking the condo I was interested in, George helped me at every step of the purchase and was always extremely responsive. Since George has been a realtor for many years in Honolulu, he understands this market very well. I would definitely work with George again.
Michel - Honolulu, HI
"....very professional & knowledgeable...."
Jim & I have worked with George Krischke, Honolulu HI5, for several years, purchasing & selling a high end condo. He is very professional & knowledgeable with the Hawaii real estate market. He would be the first one we would call if we planned on buying or selling any of our properties. We highly recommend him & Honolulu HI5.

"....shows how dedicated and professional...."
My wife and I just purchased a condo in Waikiki and George Krischke of Hawaii Living was our Real Estate broker. George is a very professional, knowledgeable agent and was there for us every step of the way. We are extremely satisfied with how we were treated and would recommend George to friends and family. George is still in contact with us today even though it has been nearly a month since closing date. This shows how dedicated and professional George is with his clients.
Paul Will - Honolulu, HI
"....responsive, hoest and hard working...."
We have bought and sold many homes, including 3 now in Hawaii, and worked with many Realtors. George is one of the most responsive, honest, and hard working Realtors we have had the pleasure of working with. George is a credit to the real estate profession and can be depended on to get the job done, and done right. George worked extremely hard to ensure we got the property and the deal we wanted, and because of his hard work and due diligence, we actually closed early.
"....completed smoothly and without issue...."
George Krischke is a true professional. My husband is a licensed NV real estate agent, and George worked with him to ensure that the transaction was completed smoothly and without issue. This is the second time we have worked with George, and we would not hesitate to recommend him to our family, friends and colleagues.
Barb Falvey - Las Vegas, NV
"....smile and heart full of Aloha."
We met George at an open house and was immediately impressed with his knowledge of the real estate market and Waikiki vacation rentals. He listened to our parameters and within a day had a list of units for us to view and we made an offer that same day. He is a conciencious professional who will do all that he can to bring your transaction to a successful close. He does all this with a smile and heart full of Aloha!
"....professional, friendly, get-it-done attitude...."
George Krischke went far beyond my expectations in selling my home and worked tirelessly to do anything and everything that was needed. He was the seller's broker when I bought the house 11 years before and was the first and only realtor I thought to call when it came time for me sell. I can't say enough for the professional, friendly, get-it-done attitude George brought to the difficult game of real estate sales. If you choose George to sell your home or help you buy, you will be very happy with the results. Thanks much George!
