R ecently my wife and I were interested in purchasing a condo on the island of Kauai and selling our Maui condo at Papakea Beach Resort to execute a 1031 exchange. Our real estate agent on Kauai recommended Kristen Kingwell on Maui to help us sell the Maui condo, and we are so happy that she did!
We have sold our Papakea Beach Resort condo and are in the process of closing on the Kauai condo. We are very happy with Kristens hard work and professional attitude. From the time we contacted Kristen she worked diligently to prepare the listing, host a realtor open house, and she was able to secure a good offer within a matter of weeks. She even continued to show the unit, should a backup offer be needed.
Once we accepted the offer, she worked tirelessly on the activities needed to close on the sale, including preparation of a spreadsheet for all milestones required by the sales agreement. The sale closed approximately 3 weeks after we accepted the offer. Kristen even helped us out by volunteering to clean out our owners cabinets and ship our items to Kauai. She even texted photos of the locker items in real time to make sure they were not left behind. Kristen went far beyond our expectations and we wholeheartedly recommend her for any future real estate transactions.
I n 2012, I purchased a lot on the island of Maui. I consulted with Kristen Kingwell of Coldwell Banker on the property. I wanted to build a home with my partners and then sell it.
I contacted Kristen Kingwell because of her reputation of being a "go getter" who knows Maui properties. I felt she could get the job done. Kristen spent a great deal of time researching the property and the type of house to be built. She helped with the project from start to completion. Upon completion she had the home professionally staged, held brokers opens and subsequently sold the home with good results. If you are buying or selling a home on Maui. I would highly recommend using Kristen. She is very professional and will get the job done.

I have known and worked with Kristen Kingwell since 2006. She is smart,persistent ,and willing to do what it takes to get you what you are looking for. Kristen has been looking for the perfect home for me on Maui for the past 2 1/2 years. She knows the market and values of what the homes are worth. We just closed on the perfect little home for me.
I highly recommend Kristen and will use her again for my next home purchase in a year.
W hen I met Kristen through mutual friends, it was evident she was a very competent real estate agent, and extremely knowledgeable in the Pineapple Hill – Kapalua neighborhoods. I also found she was a real pleasure to work with. I asked her to price my property and she gave me an accurate listing price for my home. She brought in an expert in the staging luxury homes and made great recommendations on how to stage and prepare the home for the Broker Caravan.
I have bought and sold many homes and Kristen was far above and beyond all the agents I have worked with. She always went the extra mile and held daily open houses, cared for the property while I was off island and showed it in a very beautiful way. If you are thinking of listing your home, in my honest opinion, you can count on Kristen to get the job done in a highly professional way. Please feel free to call me as a recommendation for Kristen Kingwell.
W e met Kristen at an open house in Kapalua. She is very professional and knowledgeable about the real estate market in Maui and she worked tirelessly to find us the perfect property. After showing us homes in different areas we knew that Kapalua was the place for us. Kristen is easy to work with, friendly and patient. She worked very hard to keep things running smoothly until the closing. We highly recommend Kristen. She found us our dream home in Maui.
A fter meeting Kristen at an open house we recognized that she had an outstanding sense of the real estate market and chose her to sell our home. She arranged to list, stage, and open house our home, while we were off island. She marketed the home effectively and secured a buyer within 3 weeks of the list date. We appreciated her attention to detail and her helpfulness. Kristen was always available whenever we needed her. She took care of the property during a hurricane threat and shipped our personal items to us at closing. Kristen made a very complex sale go smoothly. If you are thinking of selling your home you are in good hands with Kristen.
W e had been struggling on our own, to look for a home on Maui and then we were fortunate that Kristen was recommended to us from a friend. Most the homes in West Maui were out of our price range or couldn’t support a home business so we needed to look elsewhere. We needed a neighborhood that would allow a home business, two Labradors that needed room to roam, close to hiking and a passion for privacy; Kristen received a long list of requirements for our home. She listened carefully to our needs and set out to find us the right property and introduced us to Up Country, Pukalani, Maui. Within viewing four homes Kristen found us the perfect neighborhood and a house that suited our needs. We purchased a beautiful spacious home with an adorable private yard filled with mango, orange, lime and banana trees. Her experience, negotiating skills and organization made the purchase a breeze! Whether you are buying or selling I’d highly recommend Kristen she is a true professional you can trust.
I needed to sell my father’s home on the Ka’anapali Hillside from 4200 miles away from Maui . The home had fallen in disrepair and was in need of a lot of work before we could even think about putting it on the market. Kristen hit the ground running and took charge. Her list of contractors was invaluable. She made sure the property was at its best before we put it on the market. She constantly held open houses. Once we had an offer I realized how good she truly is. There were many unexpected details because of the guardianship and Kristen was on top of everything. It was a very complex sale and she made it easier than I ever thought possible. I’d unequivocally recommend Kristen as she exceeded my expectations in every way. You can trust her to get the transaction done.
W e met Kristen while looking at open houses in the Ka'anapali area. Our intent was to not only look at homes but also meet and interview realtors. We were extremely impressed from our very first interaction.
Kristen was extremely knowledgeable of the area and made it clear that she was there to help us find the right home for our needs while being an advocate for the sellers she was representing. Kristen won our confidence and went to work finding properties that met our requirements. When we found a property that we wanted, she worked tirelessly to see the transaction through to closure. Kristens dedication to client satisfaction is second to none. Her dedication and assistance to us has continued long past the close of escrow.
I highly recommend Kristen and assure you that she is a professional that I will seek out for any future real estate needs of my own.
W e have been interested in buying a house in Ka’anapali area for several years. We were referred to Kristen in January 2013. Since then, Kristen kept us updated of the Ka’anapali housing market. She was always easy to get in touch with and very patient. She helped us submit purchase contracts for 3 different properties. After 5 counter offers and negotiations, we finally got the accepted offer. Kristen also provides good advices and helps after closing. Kristen is very familiar with the West Maui and she is easy to work with. We are happy with the result.
I am sure there are many qualified realtors on Maui. We personally recommend Kristen Kingwell at Coldwell Banker... Successful, hardworking and proactive. Kristen has lived in Maui for 17 years and she really paid attention to what we were looking for. She has the patience of a saint. With us living on the mainland she was at the condo numerous times to oversee all the things that needed to get done in order for the condo to close escrow and she continued to oversee the renovations we had done and gave us updates with pictures and videos. ‐ Good advice and great contacts and great follow through. You can get our number from Kristen if you want to call us for reference!
A s first time Maui homebuyers, and parents of two young children, we were very nervous about what was available in our price range. Kristen was extremely patient with us, and encouraged us to visit many different properties before making any decisions. When we finally did find something that we wanted she was amazing at communicating with the listing agent and getting answers quickly. At no point did we ever feel pressured, or like we were doing the wrong thing. She even took the time out of her own personal vacation with her family to talk to us, and close the deal! We would highly recommend Kristen to anyone looking to buy or sell a property on Maui. Kristen is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to the West Side, and very easy to work with.
I had been looking and looking for a good deal on Maui and Kristen helped me find one. And because of the market here we needed to jump on it fast. I was first in line and got it.
I am so happy with my new condo. AND, after I put in the offer I left for a scheduled vacation to Japan. Everything went smoothly while I was away and Kristen made sure of it . I can highly recommend her.
