5/5 StarsTracy gets it done! My wife and I just bought our first home and we COULDN'T BE HAPPIER with the outcome. We were complete "newbies" to the real estate game, and Tracy put in the effort to go the EXTRA MILE for us from the get go. He makes himself AVAILABLE LITERALLY ANY TIME and responds to inquiries typically within 15min, even when he is on the road. From the moment we started working with him, Tracy hooked us into his real estate website and began daily (if not more frequent) UPDATES with changes in the market. He will BEND OVER BACKWARDS to get clients out to see properties as quickly as possible, and has an extensive NETWORK with other agents, which makes facilitating negotiations a breeze. We ended up getting our place for 50k LESS than what we had originally bid. Tracy has been doing this for a long time on Oahu and it shows in his ATTENTION TO DETAIL and SPEED with which he gets things done. I would definitely work with Tracy again, should we ever decide to leave!
5/5 StarsTracy is the absolute BEST realtor we have ever worked with! He walked us through every step of the process and maximized our potential for sale by staging our property beyond our expectations! By the time the property went on the market, we accepted an offer HIGHER than the asking price within the first week, setting a new high-price record for condos in the entire 19 year history of our building!!! If you're thinking of selling, Tracy is definitely the only call you need to make. He'll take it from there and you'll know he will get you top dollar!
5/5 StarsTracy Yamato of Coldwell Banker is an outstanding Realtor in many ways. The purchase of a home is a multifaceted process that often a buyer does not fully anticipate until he/she is in the midst of it. What I really appreciated about Tracy is that from the very beginning to the very end he was with me every step of the way guiding me with his knowledge and supporting me with his attention and care. When I look back on the last 6 months, I do not think I would have been able to continue being a single parent, running my own professional practice, and doing a lot of volunteer work connected with my child’s activities, all while buying and moving into a new residence if Tracy had not been my realtor! Tracy has extensive market knowledge as the result of being a Realtor for 24 years and from performing many other roles that relate to real estate (project salesperson, investor, property manager, landlord). Not a day went by without Tracy giving me many options to consider buying, and when we did walkthroughs of the potential properties to buy he was quick to point out how each of them could be improved. When it was time to put in an offer to purchase a home in the condominium building that Tracy had originally recommended, Tracy worked hard to secure my home for me because another offer came in at the same time for the same dollar amount. The documents in connection with the purchase of a home are overwhelming, even for an attorney like me when I am trying to run my law practice. Tracy helped me through this onerous process by highlighting deadlines and documents that I had to pay attention to. Throughout the buying process, the moving process, and the settling in process, Tracy always responded to my calls and text messages immediately (or as soon as he was available if he was meeting with another client). As a family law attorney, I am used to being the professional who helps clients through rough times. Tracy really helped me to see from a client’s perspective how a conscientious, go the extra mile, approachable, and caring professional can make all the difference in what would otherwise be an overwhelming experience. I wholeheartedly recommend Tracy Yamato of Coldwell Banker to anyone who is considering buying or selling a home. Not only is Tracy Yamato of Coldwell Banker Pacific Properties the ultimate professional who you want on your side, but he is also a great friend!
5/5 StarsLike many homeowners who are contemplating downsizing but are unsure and hesitant, we decided to meet with Tracy Yamato who was recommended to us as the most knowledgeable condo expert in Hawaii. His insights and experiences showed us the possibilities and we gained a new perspective about the real estate market. We were enthused to make the move and tasked him with meeting our specific needs. Tracy Made us feel comfortable and confident about our decision to sell our home and simultaneously purchase a new home. He was straightforward in explaining what we should anticipate, thorough in answering our questions, and patient in showing us properties. He never ‘gave up’ on us as clients, nor did experience any pressure to make a decision. During the process of selling our home, Tracy kept us in constant communication to ensure all matters were handled properly and in a timely manner. He provided guidance on the ‘de-cluttering’ of our home and personally staged the property for the open house showings. We were amazed and pleased with the outcome. Issues arose during the negotiations of the two transactions but Tracy immediately advised us as what needed to be done for each situation. He contacted the appropriate individuals to address the concerns and made certain that everything was properly documented. Tracy was always available to answer our questions and soothe our frazzled nerves. He kept us updated throughout the processes. Upon the sale of our home and transition to our new home, Tracy made all arrangements to professionally clean the home for the new owners. He was definitely there to minimize any problems and stress for us. To further ensure the enjoyment of our new home, Tracy purchased Home Warranty coverage for our appliances and home systems. We are very happy with our decision and we know that Tracy is responsible. His service and commitment to his clients are commendable. His professionalism and integrity in handling the sale of our home and purchase of a new home are exceptional as Tracy went ‘over and beyond’ what one would expect from a Realtor. Tracy truly embodies the attributes of an exemplary Realtor for the 21st century.
