Dream Come True

I’m the sort of guy who likes to think I can take care of things myself and save some money in the process. Well, my wife and I decided we didn’t want to buy here in California and instead wanted to look on Maui. I am so thankful that I realized we needed help with this. Buying a place thousands of miles away is complicated.

Sue DeLoria was recommended to us by a friend who lives on Maui. I called and emailed and Sue replied right away. We were planning our vacation to West Maui a month or two hence and Sue sent us listings to consider and we got in mind a few condos to look at when we were there. When we arrived we met up several times and looked at the condos we thought we liked. Sue was always available and since we were on island for only a week, that was huge.

We had an idea before we arrived of a complex that we might like and sure enough we fell in love with a 2 bedroom condo in Kahana. We met with Sue , wrote up an offer, and got on the plane back to California. Sue was terrific, the thing is, Sue is not just someone who shows you some properties, lots of us know how to search the listings these days. No, Sue takes an interest in you, and becomes part of your team. Sue completely understands the unique aspects of buying a property on Maui when you live on the mainland. I can’t count the number of times she visited the condo during the buying process. She handled the inspection, the repairs she even had introduced us to a really nice woman who has become our property manager.

Every time there was a question, or something needed attention Sue took care of it. Talk about saving us some money! I don’t know how I would have gotten through this without her. She even worked with my financial guy here in California to keep things moving when he was having trouble keeping on our timeline.

So now, we own a condo where we will be able to retire. It’s a dream come true for us. And along with everything else, I think when we do move over to Maui we will be able to consider Sue a friend.
