"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!"

"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"

Loretta Jardine - Austin, Texas
"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."
Phil Herlihey - Roscoe, IL
"Our search for a Honolulu condominium quickly led to the Hawaii Living website. The service was as good as the site. George Krischke not only has the knowledge, but he attends to details and is careful to make sure that all the other parties do so as well. Most impressive of all it happens with grace, good humor, and apparent ease. After many years of selling and owning real estate we know how much effort it takes to make the process seem simple."
Donald Gravestock - San Francisco, CA
"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 - Olympia, WA

Edralin & Wendy Thomson - Honolulu, HI
"About the adventure to buy an apartment in Honolulu. My whole life I am German – it is important when you are old. USA I visited the first time (Chicago) at the age of 70. Afterwards Honolulu in memory of Jack Lord – Hawaii-5-0 (we liked to watch at TV in Germany). Back to Germany I decided to buy an apartment in Honolulu. But how to do? I did know not anybody in the USA. At first I bought a laptop and the connection to internet. With a lot of difficulties I learned to use it. And – searching for an agent to buy an apartment – I discovered George ! His picture looked as if you may trust him, his last name looked as if he is German, and there was written that he speaks German and English ! I wrote a letter in German, telling him all my problems and asking all questions which were important for me to buy an apartment in Honolulu. I was really astonished and very lucky that he called back very soon. Our conversation was interesting and after it I knew, that I could trust him. At the beginning of December 2007 we had our first meeting. George offered me a lot of possibilities and he never pressed me to take this or this apartment ! At the end of December I decided. I never was disappointed. And I never was disappointed that I chose George as realtor. He always was helpful and very honest ! He enabled me to understand processing of applications and processorganisation buying an apartment. He was kindly and very, very patiently. What a luck that I discovered him in the internet ! Thank you George!"
Barbel Thiering - Berlin, Germany
"George Krischke was always so patient, diligent, timely, & professional. He was able to help us locate the right property and close in record time; 16 days from the first day we met. He was able to help us quickly focus on finding the right property and negotiate the best terms with our interest in mind. George helped us fulfill one of our dreams of owning ocean front property in Hawaii overlooking the most beautiful sunset."
Jamie & Marvin Sakamoto - San Jose, CA
"I originally was referred to another agent, but after calling on one of your listed properties – which George showed me, I knew he was the agent I wanted to work with. So, I chose your company because of George. He is an excellent realtor – knowledgeable, patient, good listener, very accommodating – great! I already have referred several friends and associates to George, and will refer others. I highly recommend him."
Lisa B - Los Angeles, CA
"I’m pleased to endorse the professionalism, integrity and expertise of George Krischke of Honolulu HI-5 Realty, who has helped me purchase two homes and sell three over the past 14 years. With his expert counsel we were able to achieve our desired sales and purchase prices on all five transactions. Most recently, we put up for sale our home at Koko Villas in Hawaii Kai. Working with George, we reviewed the market conditions, set the price and made minor repairs and improvements to achieve our goal. Honolulu HI-5 Realty marketed the property, which then sold at the first open house for the price we were looking for. George is pleasant to deal with and is attentive and meticulous in his work. He brings great peace of mind to the entire process. I highly recommend him and Honolulu HI-5 Realty."
David R. McNeil - Honolulu, HI
"George, I want to take a moment to thank you for having dispelled all the "negativeness" that I have experienced in the past with Realtors. Number one, you listened to what I wanted to accomplish by the sale of my beautiful condo at the Villa on Eaton Square. We then walked the talk, in coming up with pricing goals that would achieve my needs. You kept those concerns foremost, and throughout the showings and resultant sale. Second, you kept me informed as to the progress in meeting those goals; and never once tried to impose your particular will on my desires for the outcome. You were respectful throughout the actual sale and finalizing process. Your experience and real estate knowledge was indeed very evident. When other realtors showed the unit, they were quick to acknowledge your expertise and experience, without being asked "that you are the best"! I have bought and sold millions of dollars of real estate during my lifetime; you indeed are "head and shoulders" above the competition. The result was a very satisfied seller and buyer. You have now earned, deservingly, the title of the Realtor to get the highest price per square foot price at the Villa. Although we miss our unit at the Villa, we now enjoy the opportunity to move on with our adventure of enjoying life in Palm Springs, California. We were hesitant to hire you because you were referred to us by a family friend of yours and ours. We are in their debt for having encouraged us to interview, and then hire you to work for us. Again, Thank you very much,"
Robert Herberger - Palm Springs, CA
"Aloha George, Both sales of our properties were trying and complex and we thank you for your patience and dedication. I'm glad I followed my instincts of following you as my first impressions of your service, calm demure and confidence kept you in mind. We really appreciate your constant updates, patience, prompt attention to pending litigation and long hours spent on these sales. Mahalo,"
The Matsushita Family Trust, CA
"We could not have been more satisfied with the service that we received from George Krischke, who helped us locate and buy our beautiful condo. George's knowledge of the Honolulu market combined with his direct and friendly approach, his attention to detail and follow through made the whole experience a very positive one for us. We would highly recommend him!"
Barbara and Pat Falvey - Honolulu, HI
"During the past two years, George Krischke has helped us both buying and selling. In both instances he was extremely professional, meticulous and a pleasure to work with. He has extensive knowledge of the local market and we were able to get an excellent price both in buying and selling. The transactions were fast and he helped us through every detail with care and expertise. We wouldn't dream of using any other real estate agent in Honolulu."
David and Julia - New Zealand
"George Krischke did an amazing job of helping me sell my mom's condo in Hawaii after she passed away. He communicated regularly and walked me through the entire process. He clearly explained what we were doing (and why we had to do it) during each phase of the sale. I live in California and have no knowledge of the Hawaii real estate market. George's knowledge of the local market and real estate law saved me thousands of dollars. George even took the time to go to the attorney's office to pick up paperwork, ensuring escrow closed on time. He made a rather difficult process seamless. If I ever have the need to buy or sell real estate in Hawaii again, Hawaii Living will be my first call. Thank you, George!"
Todd Cook - Santa Rosa, CA
"I just wanted to thank you for all you have done for us in selling our Hawaii property. You have been the kind of person who I admire, first! You were always there looking out for what we needed to know in order to make the best decisions possible. We remain a ‘George’ fan and as time goes by and we know someone who could use an ‘excellent’ realtor, we will recommend. With the very best for you and yours,"
Bob​ Herberger - Palms Springs, CA​
"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!"
Gwen Purdy - Honolulu, HI
"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!"
The Fujimori's
"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
"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."
Mike Hasselle
"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
"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
"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!"
