"....familar with the rules...."
I visited Oahu for 5 weeks in October 2020. I enjoyed my time so much that I started to dream about owning property in Waikiki. While I was there, I called realtor George Krischke, and right from the start, he was incredibly helpful. I was interested in purchasing a condo unit that I could use for vacations and also use as an investment property. George was so knowledgeable about the entire Waikiki area and was really familiar with the rules governing rental properties. He made several great recommendations about different locations to check out. He took me to view all of the properties I was interested in and went above and beyond making sure to answer all of my questions. I didn’t buy anything in a October, but the following March I was ready to make an offer! He helped walk me through everything and my offer was accepted with NO counter offer. During the escrow process, which is extremely long in Hawaii, he was always available to answer any questions I had and always got back to me the same day even though I live in California.
He helped facilitate the inspection and even went to videotape the walkthrough so I could see the property. Did I mention I bought the unit SIGHT UNSEEN?! George had checked it out for me and sent me a link to a video that he made just for me.
Using George as my realtor was fabulous. He did such a great job from the initial offer to the close, that I recommended him to my mom, who just closed on a unit in the same building. He did a superb job handling her entire transaction as well. Thank you, George. We highly recommend you!

"....much insight into the market...."
George's wealth of knowledge and experience helped to facilitate a smooth transaction between buyer and seller. His research and experience give him much insight into the market, and I would highly recommend George Krischke for your real estate needs.

"....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
“....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.
Patrick Lynch - Kauai, HI
"....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!
Kelly Hidano - Honolulu, HI
"....by far the best agent...."
George is the best Real Estate Agent period. Excellent communication, always responsive Goes above and beyond to help the sale Knows the market and how to attract buyers Great exposure to market Quick sale Overseas seller in a very difficult situation with a distressed condo. George helped me every step of the way with pricing, making the property marketable, marketing the property, lots of showings and a quick sale. Ive sold many properties over the years, George is by far the best agent anywhere. So lucky he recently sold a unit in the condo bldg prior, i just picked him because of that.
"....excellent in communicatating...."
George was excellent in communicating through emails, phone calls and text messages. He kept us informed of what we needed to do to complete the sales contract. He was also very knowledgeable about resolving the inspection repairs needed. We highly recommend his services in your future real estate transactions.
Jean Suzuki - Honolulu, HI
"....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
Mark Matsumoto - Honolulu, HI
If you are interested or even remotely curious about purchasing a condominium in Honolulu HI, which includes the popular areas of Waikiki, Ala Moana, Diamond Head and others, look no further than George Krischke and his Hawaii Living website.
George is extremely knowledgeable about the ins and outs of this market. Phone calls, emails or text, George responded to our specific questions about each building we were interested in, over the course of the year, while we were trying to decide where to live.
Much of the information we wanted came from George’s Hawaii Living website which provides an amazing amount of easy to access information. Found an interesting listing in a particular building and wonder if there are more? One click gives you all the current listings and a great description of the building. Want to check out all the condos that sold in that same building going back years? One more click gets you the info. Want Honolulu county data related to a certain unit? one more click.
We flew into Oahu the first of May looked at some condos, attended a few open houses, put in an offer the first week and closed escrow at the end of May and we were not on island for most of it. George kept us on track with all the important milestones.
David and Connie Block - Seattle, WA
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
"....beyond any service expectations."
If you are looking for a GREAT Realtor Look NO further! I have been waiting to buy a condo in Waikiki for many years. George not only sells many beautiful properties he owns many as well in areas that I am interested in and can give personal feedback from his experiences.
Please do your self a favor and read my experience with him. I have purchased properties all over the world and most of my experiences with others seemed to just be based on a commission earned.
George walked me through the intricacies of the nightly rental market in Hawaii. He not only helped me find a great ocean front property he went well beyond any service expectations.
George Helped remodel my condo, lined me up with contractors, actually followed there work on my behalf in the condo as I am out of state.
He paid attention to every detail of the remodel as if it was his own. His Lovely wife helped carry new beds furniture pieces etc.
He made the process so carefree and easy that I immediately bought another condo and yes George my realtor and yes once again he helped remodel and put this condo in the rental pool.
George, Thank you for everything you do, your attention to detail and actually bringing knowledge and caring to each interaction with your clients. Believe me trust in George he will not let you down and will guide you through the entire process.
Kevin D - Providence, UT
George is really knowledgeable. He also put us in touch with his contractors who we were also very impressed with. He would inform us when deadlines were coming up. He is very thorough which we really appreciated.
Irma Suntay - Seattle, WA
"....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.
Richie Zeng - Silicon Valley, CA
"....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.
Linda Martyak - Honolulu, HI
"....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!
Maile Palisa - Honolulu, HI
"....wealth of knowledge...."
We found George through his Fantastic Hawaiiliving.com website which has numerous helpful articles. We had a deadline with selling our condo that we wanted to meet and George full filled it. We were from out of the country so we needed to be educated with the Hawaiian Real Estate this was achieved. A wealth of knowledge he is. We were well informed all the time. Always on time plus kept us updated. Quickly responded to our phone calls, texts and emails. We were so fortunate to have George sell our Condo - would definitely use him again plus highly recommend him. Hawaiiliving.com website helped us find George - just a great updated current website.

"....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!
We had a great experience working with George Krischke from Hawaii Living. George is keen on details, responsive to all your inquiries and concerns, professional, timely, and provided excellent service. His top-notched knowledge for his profession helped us to quickly purchase our new home. We are most grateful.
Loretta Jardine - Austin, Texas
"....much simpler with his knowledge...."
We were so fortunate to have George as our Realtor for the relocation of our residences in Honolulu. George’s experince in the industry was evident from our first meeting. Being able to purchase, sell and facilitate our exchange all within close to 40 days from beginning to end was truly a pleasure and made so much simpler with his knowledge and assistance. We would recommend his services without hesitation to anyone.
Jack Barr - Vancouver, CA
“....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.
Felicia Yom - Edgewater, NJ
I can’t say enough about George as he is absolutely phenomenal! In all my 25 years purchasing properties, he is one of the few rare outstanding elite agents that is genuine, extremely generous of his time in sharing his experiences, superb knowledge of the market, attentive, thorough, wonderful demeanor, honest, passionate about his work and helping his clients, great follow-through, professional, has the client's best interest, and without any pressure. He has written numerous articles that are extremely informative and resourceful in his site. Therefore, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND GEORGE for all your selling and purchasing needs, as he is what I call, a diamond in the rough. Thank you George!
Ivy Apt - San Diego, CA
"...asssisted in all aspects..."
I had found a property of interest and needed a Realtor to assist with purchase. After failed attempts with other realtors, George stepped-up after the first call and we had a final closing in less than two months. George assisted in all aspects of the purchase, a great benefit since I'm a buyer out of state. Great knowledge and depth of resources.
Bob Aparicio - Westminster, CA
“....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!
Susan Collida - Long Beach, CA
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.

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.
Linh Tran - Palm Desert, CA
“....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.
Erika & Robert Brunson - Bell Air, CA
"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!
Crystal & Larry Cook
"....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.
Phil Herlihey - Roscoe, IL
"....responsive and knowledgeable..."

Marylou Takahashi - San Francisco, CA
"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.
E EdStewin - Honolulu, HI
"....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.

"....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.

"....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!
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
"....always there looking out for what we needed to know...."
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
"....made a rather difficult process seamless."
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
George is exceptionally knowledgeable about the Waikiki market. He guided us through the acquisition of a condo and helped us understand important details of our purchase allowing us to feel confident about our decision. We highly recommend his services and look forward to working with him again.
Anonymous - Honolulu, HI
"....professional, meticulous and a pleasure....."
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
"....could not have been more satisfied...."
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
"....thank you for your patience and dedication...."
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.

".…head and shoulders above the competition…"
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
“....attentive and meticulous....”
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
“...patient, good listener, very accommodating…”
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

“What a luck that I discovered him in the internet!”
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!

"...never had anybody help me as much as George..."
I'm almost 62 years old and for over 40 years I've been buying & selling homes, mobile homes and raw land. I've never had anybody help me as much as George Krischke has. I have never bought property out of state before and George made my dream of owning a home in Hawaii possible.

"I was impressed with George's work...."
I was impressed with George's work as the agent for the Buyer of my property. Therefore I contacted him to be our agent for our eventual purchase of this property. And his performance was just as impressive as in the previous transaction.

"...out of state for the entire process."
We found George by way of an internet inquiry. We couldn't have gotten a better agent than George Krischke if we would have hand-selected him. We were out of state for the entire process. George just handled things.
