Team Members

Agents Julie Ching and Dennis Yates were always available to answer any questions and took the time to explain my every concern. I had a medical problem at the time and they took over and helped my two daughters with getting the place ready for the sale, like they were a part of the family. Both Julie and Dennis are very professional sales people with excellent knowledge of the real estate market. They did a wonderful job of staging the house and were always available to answer any concern I had.

I have an inactive real estate license, and my original intention was to sell our home myself. My wife and I were encouraged by Ching and Yates to reconsider; they assured us that we would be more successful and get a higher selling price quicker if we followed their marketing plan as prepared by them. We decided to go that way, and the results were amazing! We went from MLS to escrow in just two weeks with a much higher closing price than we would have ever thought possible. Their marketing plan and property preparation advice were KEY to our success. Their professionalism and experience were evident every step of the way, and their services exceeded our expectations in every way!

Julie and Dennis were very professional; they made us feel that they were truly acting on our behalf with our best interests a priority.

‐ Phil Steel, North Kona (July 13, 2015)

I like the way they had our backs when dealing with the sellers ... That's the feeling I got ... Also how she would explain each process as it went down. They made me feel like family.

‐ Shane Howell, North Kona (July 13, 2015)

"I like that [their company] is a known name in Hawaii with a good reputation. This is the third transaction Julie has handled for us, and she always does an excellent job. She and Dennis both go to great lengths for their clients."

‐ Jeanie Russell, Villas at Keauhou Estates (December 24, 2014)

"They are [their company's] most valuable asset -- sharp, hard-working, professional, focused, kind and trustworthy. They are experts at closing the deal and ALWAYS had our backs."

‐ Donna Beavers, Bayview Estates (December 24, 2014)

"(They) made the investments necessary to market our property. Julie and Dennis are great people. You are fortunate to have them on your team."

‐ Duane Sparks, Keauhou Estates (November 14, 2014)

"I encountered a professional warm aloha experience with Julie and Dennis when they were selling my 'challenging' oceanfront home. Big obstacles were handled with ease, and my home sold in record time. They definitely went above and beyond! I am so grateful to them"

‐ Judy Ritter, Keauhou (November 14, 2014)

"We have sold six homes in 50 years, and Julie and Dennis were by FAR the best agents we ever had! From start to finish, everything went like clockwork! They were right on top of everything. They are real professionals!"

‐ Don D'Ambrosio, Keauhou Estates (March 31, 2014)

"It is so hard to say just a “few words” when you are talking about the BEST REALTORS on the Big Island! They are more than realtors, they are family! I started to write this review and realized before I knew it, I had written a whole page before I decided I’d better condense it! Before meeting with Julie Ching and Dennis Yates, I had contacted two other realtors who didn’t even bother to follow up with me. I found Julie Ching by accident, seeing her on Big Island TV as I flipped channels in our hotel. Julie Ching and Dennis Yates listen (so important), they respond to every request, they are always available (or get back with you right away), and they always treat you like you are their only client! Our search for our house lasted 2 plus years—but Julie would always tell me, “I want to be sure YOU find the home YOU love!” This is not an empty phrase to either of them. They sincerely mean it! Most of our transaction was “Big Island to Mainland” and Julie was on top of everything! They were with us every step of the way and let us know any and everything we needed to do to make our Dream Home come true! Finally, after closing, instead of making us meet them at the office, Julie and Dennis met us at the airport to put the keys to OUR house in our hands! Now THAT’S WHAT BEING THE BEST IS ALL ABOUT!"
