What My Buyer Clients Have to Say

Nicole is absolutely the sweetest and most patient realtor there is! If you haven’t bought from her yet, it’s time to do it now!
by Susie Hines
Nicole is the ultimate professional. We had a few challenges during the transaction, which is always expected, but Nicole made sure we overcame all issues without much difficulty. Highly recommend!!!
by Matt
In this fast growing pace and ever evolving real estate market, it is truly becoming very difficult to find an agent that truly and sincerely has "your best interest" in mind, and will constantly hold a place of integrity, loyalty, and professionalism, all at once... I found all of that and much more with Mrs. Kovach. I will not hesitate to reach out to her again and again for any future and additional ventures on the Island. She has made this transaction, one the most hassle free experience and kept the process going at an impressive pace throughout. Nicole found my buyer within the first 24 hours of active listing. That you are looking to buy, or sell, I would highly recommend her to handle anyone's needs in this chalenging market which she is obviously and undoubtedly very familiar with...

Nicole was fanulous to work with. I would definitely do business with her again. Very knowledgeable and helpful.
by Drew Smith
Working with Nicole was an amazing experience. I am the type of person with a ton of questions, and she was not only knowledgeable but incredibly patient with me. This was my first land purchase on Maui and being from the mainland, early on it became clear to me that buying vacant land on the island is a bit different than elsewhere. Nicole was a pleasure to work with and will be my forever go-to on Maui.
by Todd Koren
Nicole was great, 5 stars! She is very professional and down to earth with the kindest demeanor. So detailed and amazing help with having my husband and I desire two completely different ideas of our dream home. She managed to find us a great home that we both love and handle our differences perfectly throughout the process. I felt like she was more of a trusted friend than just our realtor. Highly recommend her!

Very satisfied
by Valeria Magri Pollaccia
Finding and buying a house with Nicole was an absolute pleasure. She was attentive to our long list of needs and actively involved through each step of the process. Her detail oriented nature along with her personable approach eased the stress and headache of home buying. I was constantly impressed with her persistence as we battled among other buyers. I am so grateful for Nicole and looking forward to working with her again if/when seeking another property.
by Samantha Der
Nicole was a wonderful agent! She helped us find an amazing home and walked us through the whole process. We cannot thank her enough!
by Heather
We were looking for a starter house to share with my daughter and son-in-law with an ohana(in law suite). Nicole found us a home within our budget and walked us through a very complicated process of acquiring the property through a short sale which included going through probate. We have over the years done numerous transactions and without a doubt Nicole stands above all the other agents we’ve dealt. We would highly recommend her.
