If you want to sell your property at a fair price,quickly,call Debbie.
Definitely would use again.”
Upon her listing it, she took the opportunity to stage it which created interest in those who it showed to. This touch created activity, offers, and then had it sold within 60 days! I attribute that to her knowledge of market conditions, her energy, integrity, and professional and affable manner. From the beginning she was always on top of the sale, also making recommendations for improvements and tips on showings. She was always in communication and making sure every detail was taken care of. I would certainly recommend Debbie to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.”
I was very appreciative of all the extra efforts made to help sell my home. They were most gracious and all was accomplished in a timely fashion, just like I needed.”

I am Active Duty military and my husband is retired (military)/full-time student. As first time home buyers with very busy schedules, the process of looking for a house was painful. We had searched for a home for over 4 months (with other agents) and were in the process of giving up - then we found Chris! We were inexperienced in what to look for in a home and limited knowledge in home buying experience however, he guided us from the beginning to the end! We told him exactly what we wanted and he spent his time working in our best interest - a reflection of his dedication to his clients! He did a lot of research on our specific wants to ensure the home we found was what we wanted, and made sure we knew the pros/cons of the homes we were interested in - advice we needed and assured us that he really cared for us! He did not give up on us - that says a lot about his character that he is committed to his clients! We could not have asked for a much better Realtor! Always professional and patient with us, we were so happy with his selfless devotion to our home search and buying experience - wish we had met him earlier in the year! He found us the home we wanted in less than a month! Even after we moved in, we contacted him about questions, he still got back to us with answers! Like we stated, a reflection of his dedication to his clients! Highly recommend him especially to military service members first time home buyers because CHRIS WORKS FOR YOUR BEST INTEREST! Thank you Chris, you are awesome!
I can attest to her tireless work ethic, selfless consideration for the needs of her buyers above her own, strategic negotiation with sellers, and her vigilance in looking out for her client's best interest through all phases of the process. She is not bound by conventional job descriptions and is truly in it to help others realize their goals and make wise investments. She will ALWAYS put her clients’ needs FIRST and is extremely trustworthy. Moreover, not only is she caring but she is a tough, strategic negotiator on your behalf. This is a rare combination of traits. I am so blessed to have worked with her during one of the biggest, scariest transactions of my life! I thank God for her help and guidance through the tough-to-navigate situations involved in home buying.
Margaret Lim is by far the best agent a buyer or seller could ask for. She is considerate, responsible, respectful, and professional. We're very happy to have her as our agent. I would definitely refer her to anyone I know who needs an agent to buy or sell their properties.
She is a great agent a buyer/seller could ask for. I will use Margaret again in the future and definitely will recommend to my friend when they need an agent.
...sometimes she even offer beyond what is expected, like sharing her experience when we encountered some difficulties while in the process of buying our condo. She even extends her time to lift you up to surpass because she believes nothing is impossible when you trust yourself and have a strong faith in God. ...I would recommend Margaret Lim to all my friends and relatives in the future.
She was very helpful in our first home purchase and offered us a lot of advice. She is sincere and honest; which are the two most precious qualities we like about her. I highly recommend her to other clients.
She became more than an Agent, she became a friend.
We have been denied many times for many reasons and she was always positive and found ways to help us. Although this was a long process, she was behind us all the way and answered all our questions.
She is very personable and always made us feel comfortable. We never felt pressured to buy a home & she talked with us like a friend more than a salesperson. She made herself available to us & was very flexible with our schedule. We will definitely seek her service in the future & recommend her to our friends.
She was very helpful, professional, and went beyond her duty & obligation to help me get approved with my loans. She was very patient & worked diligently with my loan officer in order for me to meet every requirement necessary to purchase the house. She had my best interest since day one!
She has a very nice personality. She also help me with every little thing, finding a handy man for repair, electrician, bought the paint for touch up, so much more. She really surprised me doing so much work. I never see an agent like that. I feel like she is an angel. God sent her to the people who need help.
Margaret Lim in searching for a place is great! She guided us and gave us good advice. We really appreciate her effort and will still be looking forward to work with her in the future.
She unselfishly gave us not only information that the first-time buyer should know to be able to make a wise decision but also her time by taking us to more than 10 open-house events that we were interested on. She demonstrated a genuine concern for us by listening to us and helping us in the best way she can. Because of this, we in fact, have been recommending Margaret Lim to all our friends and family who are also wanting to either buy or sell a property.
She sold my Ewa Beach unit while others wasted my time.
Margaret made the entire real estate transaction very simple, painless, and efficient for us. This was our first home-buying experience. From the first consultation to even today after the sale, Margaret has always remained more than available, and willing to help. She goes the extra mile, and treats us as if we were her only clients. She was very diligent, extremely timely with responses and feedback, and was proactive on our behalf. She allowed us to choose the pace of the transaction and our level of involvement, and always kept us informed consistently. We had very little interaction with Locations LLC per se; so essentially all of our praise and recommendations are for Margaret.
She is a good agent, has a nice personality. She helped to sell my property last year and helped me to buy a property this year. It is because she took care of everything during the whole process. I did not have to worry about anything. Every time I have questions, she responded right away. She solved all the problem right there. Last year she sold my property in 2 weeks. She really surprised me. This year she helped me to purchase a property. The seller's agent was terrible. The seller's agent never liked to answer any email, text message. Everything took forever to do. Fortunately, I have Margaret, my property closed on time. After this, I referred her to my friend to sell his condo and I gave her a name "angel".
She demonstrated results in two transactions I had with her and she deserves great appreciation in your organization.
She did the extra mile in everything.
She took myself and my wife under her wing to ensure we got the best deal possible. Despite locations LLC being a large business, Margaret made it feel like we were working with just her! Thank you so much and we look forward to next time!
I have purchased 4 properties thru her and I will keep using her to buy/sell my properties in the future.
She was very knowledgeable, patient, and she treats her client as a friend. Since it was our first time to buy a house, she really helped us in our decision making and to our own advantage with regards to the pricing and location. Her customer service is very outstanding because she's been assisting and guiding us since January this year, because our problem before was due to low credit score and we were able to improve it because of her advice. My husband and I are very thankful to Ms. Margaret. God is so Good because we were able to have our own apartment before the year end.
! She always had my best interest at heart, and worked tirelessly to make sure I did not miss out on any opportunities out there. I thank God that He had our paths cross, and am looking forward to doing future business with her!
She was quick to develop a keen insight into the kinds of properties I was interested in - and she presented me with more than just a few hand-picked options. Within just a few months of meeting Margaret I had purchased my first condo. She has a very professional, courteous, personal touch. I always looked forward to visiting open houses with Margaret as my guide. And, I am looking forward to continuing to work with her.
I highly recommend her to anyone who needs a real estate agent in Oahu.
I will definitely recommend your services to all who are in need of your help.
She made sure that everything went smoothly throughout the home buying process from start to finish. She was readily available whenever we had questions and guided us every step of the way. She truly looks out for her clients' best interests and her work ethic is really commendable. Margaret went above and beyond to ensure we are happy with our first home.
She goes out of her way to safeguard all of my transactions - eliminating possible pitfalls along the way. Always a pleasure doing business with her.
She's been there for us every step of the way, from answering our questions, to meeting us at open houses and private showings, to giving us sound advice on making the right investment decisions, Margaret Lim is the one person you can count on. My wife and I not only felt comfortable working with Margaret, but more importantly, we felt that we could trust her 100%. Margaret is not the type of person just looking for a quick sale, she genuinely cares and wants to help you find the right home that will exceed both your needs and desires. Being first time homebuyers can be overwhelming in itself, but having Margaret in our corner kept us at ease and we knew in the end that everything would be just fine. Thanks to Margaret, we purchased our first condo unit and couldn't be happier. Thanks again Margaret for making our dream of becoming homeowners a reality!
I am extremely happy that I got to know her and moving forward I know that we can call each other friends. Big Mahalo Margaret!!!
She stayed focused and calm when we had a few delays. None caused by her, but the buyers had their moments.
She was so hard-working and always made herself available to us when we needed her. She was also very knowledgeable and made us feel confident with our purchase. I would recommend (and I have) to any friends that need an agent.
She exceeded our expectations and went above and beyond for me and my family. From the start of the home buying process going into escrow and finally closing a month later. My family and I are proud to be home owners. It could not be possible without the help and guidance of our realtor Margaret Lim. She aided me in the process step by step. She answered all my questions, at all times 24/7.
She is not just our agent, she was our friend. She really cared about us and was patient with us for years. She took her time to hear us and really understood our situation, good and bad!
She knew how to get the ball rolling and keep the momentum strong. Margaret always answered my phone calls and emails; never left me wondering. After sitting down and setting our goal she made sure we never stopped and just kept moving forward over any and every obstacle. Couldn't have done it without her.
It sold quickly, then she helped up find a bigger townhouse. Grace worked hard at finding us our new house with little inventory on the market in the area we were interested in, but she did it. Grace even helped up with finding a new mortgage company with better deals, finding us a reliable house inspections company (plus, she made sure everything was fixed and operating before purchase), and she was present during our signing. I highly recommend working with Grace because she works hard, keeps you updated, and she finds you the best plan when buying a new home. Awesome and reliable which was extremely important for us. Aloha and Mahalo! via Zillow
Grace helped me buy a place for my aging father in Hawaii. He isn't physically able to get around much so our search had specific needs. I live in Virginia so we did most of our communication by text and email with a six hour time difference. She was always responsive. She would go to properties and send me photos and videos of things like stairs, the walk from the parking space to the door and anything else that could cause my dad problems.
He responded to our questions quickly and thoroughly. It was clear to us that Chris genuinely wanted us to have a smooth and successful experience. He took time to understand what we wanted and helped us find the best fit for our family and budget. I recommend Chris to all my friends and family.
We have a beautiful home on the North Shore of Hawaii because of his dedication and commitment to our family. He worked on weekends and even his family vacation on the mainland to make sure that our closing did not fall through! I can not express enough the quality in this man... a man of integrity and faith. A man of amazing work ethic and a man who knows his stuff! He will lead you and your family through the confusing and convoluted process with grace and ease. Thank you Chris Shomo... we have never been happier as your work has helped us to find a home!
He keeps you and your needs at the front. He is a man of his word and when he says something you can take it to the bank! He is also a great communicator and keeps you well informed throughout the whole process. The one thing that we found is that communication is critical. We saw first hand that the seller and their agent didn't have good communication and it made the process troublesome, but when you have a great realtor like Chris you don't have to worry. If you ever move out of town, he will work tirelessly to help you find a good realtor wherever you are moving to. We moved to Kentucky and he put us in touch with a realtor that was almost as great as he was. We are thankful for him and the help and guidance he provided.
He made my whole transaction smooth and effortless. He listened and prepared me for every step to come. Chris fought for me like he was fighting for his own house and interest. He genuinely cares about his clients. Go with Chris, he goes over and beyond, which was demonstrated when he even became a mentor for my girlfriend. I couldn't have asked for a more trustworthy person to experience my home buying process with. Thank you, Chris!!!!
Not only did I gain a great realtor by working with him, but also a great friend! He's friendly, funny, professional, punctual, detail oriented, patient, and has great ideas when it comes to real estate. He was invaluable to me during my purchasing process, and I very much plan on using him for all of my future Hawai'i real estate transactions. Thank you, Chris! See you soon!
He is very easy to work with and is very respectful. We were impressed with the amount of work he put in to maximize exposure to the public, which paid off greatly. We appreciated the continual updates throughout the entire process. His knowledge and experience will get your home sold quickly and painlessly. We are so glad he is our realtor!
I understand that it's a sellers market and it takes a relentless realtor like you to win for me the home over 8 other offers. Just thank you!"
She will walk you through the entire process and make it is understandable and painless as possible while still making sure to keep your priorities in the negotiations."
...I got to track down a long ago acqaintance ....(God Bless you..Noreen) and she got me in touch with SUZIE MAI-FRENCH...my angel in disguise....for she truly does help those of us in distress and feeling hopeless with no where else to turn ...I placed all my trust and faith to her because I found out that we have one truly remarkable trait in common ...we both trust and believe in our great lord Jesus Christ...With her guidance I am now on a short sale and will be closing a sale on my property on July 16, 2013....I now have all creditors, debt collectors and delinquencies off my shoulders and will be able to get my credit status back on track....this is truly a work of greatness because it is all being done in a record time that even our escrow officers cannot believe in! To top that off, she negotiated a $6000 creditor incentive to me at closing. In talking to others, no one believed I would close on a short sale in 3 months and get even a penny back from the bank...but I know Suzie really is God's Gift ...a Blessing ....this is my truth and testimony to her helping me."
She definitely went above and beyond all expectations. Suzie also helped me with a lot of things outside of her job description. She kept me up to date on everything and kept me on track to close on time. Without a doubt she's my realtor for life and I would recommend her to to my family and friends."
In these days when we can see all the listings ourselves, an agent has to do more than just find a place, which is all that our previous agent did. We actually made an offer on a house with him and he said it didn't need a home inspection. We insisted, and when we found out it needed major repairs, he was like, “just buy the house so I can get my money.” We switched to Suzie, and with her help made offers on 3 more houses. For each one, Suzie immediately began the due diligence, meeting numerous times with not only home inspectors but also engineers, contractors, vendors and mortgage brokers. The amount of research she did was amazing. She had an inexhaustible supply of experts who met our every need. Despite putting all of the time and effort into the due diligence, she did not push us to go through with the deals. In fact, she actually recommended we walk away from the first two because of all of the problems that came up. She never got tired of showing us around and was always cheerful. When we finally found the perfect place, she helped us construct the right deal so that we were picked over 12 other offers. After it closed and we found some problems, she worked to get them resolved. I feel that Suzie is more than a real estate agent, she is truly a partner who does everything possible to help her partner-clients succeed."
She is far and away the best agent we have ever worked with, here or on the mainland. When we sold our house, she (1) walked through and made numerous suggestions of small things we could do to improve marketability, (2) hired house cleaners, window cleaners and carpet cleaners, (3) hired movers to take out some of our furniture, and stored it in her storage space, (4) staged our house by bringing in furniture, rugs and accessories, (5) hired a fantastic professional photographer, (6) priced the home aggressively, (7) brought fresh flowers to every open house, (8) came early to every showing to help put things away and wipe down the appliances and counters, and (9) personally showed the home at 7 open houses, plus several private showings. She was as adept at working with foreign investors as with local families. A couple of weeks after we put our house on the market, I had what some people might call a superstition about the date we had listed. I asked Suzie if we could take it off the market and relist on a more auspicious day two weeks later. She readily agreed. The result - we sold above our asking price in 12 days. But that was not the end of it. When the survey came back showing our retaining wall was leaning into the neighbor's yard, she found a contractor to come out and give a bid, and persuaded the buyers to accept a credit for the amount of the bid, rather than the higher amount bid by their contractor. She then hired the house cleaners and carpet cleaners to come back after we moved out, and was there late into the night supervising them. I honestly felt that her commission was too small for all the work and expense she put into it. On the homes that we made offers on, in addition to arranging for home and termite inspections, she found contractors to come out during the inspection period so that we could get an idea of what it would cost to replace windows, take down walls, add a wet bar, etc. She also referred us to a great mortgage lender, who not only was the quickest to respond, she also came to our house twice for us to sign papers rather than making us go to her. Several of the houses we made offers on were in multiple offer situations, and we always came out on top due to her savvy pricing. On the homes we bought, she always negotiated generous credits for items to be fixed. When we sold one house and bought another one simultaneously, and were moving at the same time, twice she came with me to the bank, waited for me to get the cashier's checks, and then drove them over to the title company. The two times we walked away from deals, she fully supported us. Unlike other agents, she didn't try to talk us into houses we had changed our minds about. She was always cheerful and optimistic, and a true pleasure to work with. She was always very responsive to emails, texts and phone calls, no matter what time of day or night I reached out to her. She gave us so much attention, I always felt like we were her only clients, even though she had another closing the same week as ours and is the top producer in her office. And by the way, you may not have heard of her agency, but who cares? What's important is the agent, not the agency. Recently, our elderly father in law went into a nursing home and mom needed to sell their house. I told them to get Suzie, not just because she is a great agent, but because she is a great person who will make this difficult time in their life so much easier. Buying and selling are exhilarating but also can be stressful. Suzie makes it stress-less!"
My wife and I are so grateful that Suzie was there to baby us through the entire process. She basically did everything for us, and she made the whole process virtually stress free. I really feel like she went way beyond what any other realtor would do. End result is we sold our condo and bought our dream home in a ridiculously short time. We didn't even know Suzie before we started this. We happened to meet her when my wife and I decided to walk into an open house for a condo Suzie was selling. Suzie took the initiative to later call us and arrange a meeting. We were really impressed by her preparation and drive that day. We also felt very comfortable with her and just had a gut feeling that she would be perfect for us. Thankfully we were correct! Without going into too much detail in everything that she did, I will start by saying that she was ALWAYS accessible. If she didn't pick up her phone, she would call back the minute she was free. She dealt with everyone, and as I mentioned, we hardly did a thing. She went out of her way to find us a great lender at a great interest rate. If we had a concern she went and found a solution. She always made us feel like we were her priority number one. She was also always calm and in control which helped us stay relaxed throughout the whole process. It was very comforting knowing that if someone needed something Suzie would make sure it got done. We would recommend Suzie in a heartbeat. We love our new house so hopefully we won't need her services again anytime soon; but we will keep in touch with her because we truly feel like we have gained a new friend. Thank you Suzie for everything that you did for us!"
Many thanks to Suzie and looking forward on our next investment home soon! Again many thanks Suzie."
! Suzie exemplifies the agent who does it all and then some. We were so blessed to have found Suzie and have her lead us through the process of selling our Ewa beach home. From the beginning to end she showed amazing integrity, always honest and forthright with us in everything she did. She guided us in taking our mundane looking home and transforming it into a model-home. She has an extraordinary talent for seeing the potential in things and highlighting the beauty in a home. Things that a buyer will be looking for. The proof; our home closed as the highest priced 3-bedroom home in our community still to this date, nearly 30k more then comp homes in our neighborhood!!!!! I could go on and on about how happy we are with Suzies performance but there just isn't any space to put it all. Bottom line; Suzie is just a great person and a phenomenal person to work with. I would highly recommend Suzie's talents to anybody interested and I know that she will not disappoint."
As a first time home buyer, not sure what to expect, Suzie made this a very comfortable experience. From the beginning where we were only available on weekends and evening to go out looking, she was able to shorten the lists of homes we were looking at and was able to get us into the units we were looking for. We were very picky and had a big wish list, she was patient with us and guided us through the whole process. Once the offers were in, she would continue to check in with us and make sure things were staying on the timeline we had set up. We cannot say thank you enough for the patience and guidance she gave us through this whole process. We would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell their place as she made this as easy on us as possible."
She kept us posted on open houses and came to view them with us so she really understood what we were looking for. She was so helpful in explaining the steps and helped us to get our offer accepted to the house we really wanted! She goes above and beyond and we felt very comfortable in her hands. She walked us through the entire closing process and made everything go very smoothly!"
During our initial consultation, she had prepared a portfolio on our house, listing comparables in our area. Her initial research educated us on the market and provided us insight on the potential of our sale. Her knowledge in answering all our questions was the reason why we chose Suzie as our preferred agent of choice. From the beginning she went over and beyond to prepare our home for sale such as assisting in hiring a house cleaner, staging and providing a professional photographer to improve the marketability of our home. Suzie's consistency with communication and problem solving made us comfortable with the process from start to end. Our home sold quickly and at a great price because of Suzie. She is not only a great agent but also a great person, and we consider her as a lifelong friend. We would recommend her to anyone who is looking to sell or buy a home. Thank you, Suzie, for everything you did to make this sale as smooth as possible."
Suzie and her team (specifically Christian) did an amazing job helping me purchase my first home. Initially I reached out to Suzie over a year ago to talk about my budget and potential properties, etc. She had a nice portfolio ready for me and explained everything I needed to know. Even though I wasn't ready to sign the dotted line at the moment, she assured me that she would be ready to help me out whenever I was ready to move forward. She never pushed me into buying a specific property at a specific time. Suzie exemplifies patience, understanding and dedication to her clients. When the time came to hit the pavement, Suzie was ready to go at a moment's notice and willing to give me rides to and from properties. She would always tell me straight up what she thought of the properties, even if it wasn't good. She is not the type of agent to set you up for failure. During the escrow process, Suzie and her team put together a closing timeline that's understandable for anyone. It's great because you have everything laid out in front of you, no wondering when this or that will happen. Suzie recommends companies for all inspections and coordinates with them on a day/time for appointments, taking the load off you, the buyer! Suzie will always make an effort to be there on property with you during the inspections, if you want her to be. Her vast knowledge of the housing market on the island puts her in the top tier of agents. Not only is she very knowledgeable with the housing market, she has many contacts (contractors, repairmen, etc) on island and is more than willing to put you in contact with them. I think all the agents should have a good knowledge of the properties on island, but not all agents display the true definition of Aloha like Suzie does. To me, that's what sets her apart, her knowledge and her Aloha spirit. Suzie is literally one of the nicest, kind hearted people I know and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone. Mahalo Suzie!! You're the best!"
I was honored to have her coordinate a remodeling and resealing a three bedroom unit which concluded, what I can only describe as, miraculous!"
.. since then she has helped me Buy 3 Houses, and Sell 3. We have done 6 transactions in the past 3 years and she made each go beautifully. As a real estate investor I wanted someone who thinks and acts like an investor. Someone that knows how to uncover the diamond in the rough. As a team we have been very effective in identifying, negotiated and closing the deal on both buying and selling ends. I have spoke to countless other realtors, but most don't get the plan and strategy. Suzie gets it...and has the tools to help identify properties and buyers on the selling end. She is hard working, intelligent and really a great friend. She also considerate and kind, you can figure that out pretty quick when meeting her. One of her tricks of the trade is she one of the best people persons I know. She has a knack to connect with others. This has helped us navigate deals smoothly, which has benefited my family time and my check book. I strongly recommend Suzie for house investors or Residential home buyers."
Grace helped us to buy our home. As we were new to the island, we requested to see more than 45 properties all over the island of Oahu. She was very patient and helpful, and communicated with us very well and quickly. After we went into escrow, she was very proactive to keep us informed and guide us through the process. After closing she followed up with us to make sure everything was going well, and continued to help us to find what we needed to make our transition smooth. via Zillow
