"Moving from New York City to Hawaii would not have gone as smoothly if I had not met Colin Lee at an open house. Out of all the real estate agents I met (and believe me, I ‘interviewed’ many), I knew instantly that Colin was the perfect person to help me find my first home. He is welcoming, approachable, knowledgeable, patient, organized, and most importantly (to me, at least) efficient. Time is precious to me; even more precious is my budget. Not only did Colin make use of my limited time and methodically took me to look at properties all over the island, he also considered every criteria I listed and stayed within my price restriction. And when I couldn’t be present during one crucial part of the transaction, Colin even took time out of his already busy schedule to accommodate mine. I’ve heard so many horror stories from my colleagues about the stress-inducing, highly competitive real estate market of Oahu, but perhaps it is because they weren’t lucky enough to have worked with Colin.

If you want someone with the Aloha spirit to help you find your perfect home in a New York minute, then you definitely have to work with Colin Lee."

"Colin Lee and his associates did a fantastic job communicating with us and helping us sell our home. Colin was straightforward, honest, and personable, and worked hard to ensure a successful sale. Colin was an excellent communicator and did his best to make sure we understood the contract and the selling process. He answered our calls right away and was highly communicative. Overall, we were very satisfied with our experience working with Colin Lee and Better Homes and Gardens and would highly recommend him to other homeowners in the area."

"Mr. Colin Lee recently assisted us in the sale of our condo apartment in Hawaii and did a spectacular job. All the other realtors didn't agree with our desire to sell our home for over $300,000. They said very few apartment units in this building ever sell for that much. Obviously these realtors know nothing about construction and didn't take the time to even look or understand. Of all the realtors who turned us down, only Colin Lee and Advantage Realty could see the true value of all the custom workmanship that was incorporated in our home.

Thanks to Colin Lee's home maintenance and electrical knowledge only he could see our unit was unlike others in the complex because of its special features...So with his expert advertising skills he and his company set out an extensive advertising compaign for us and in the first day of showing we had so many people bidding it was a success. It sold immediately. Thanks to Realtor Colin Lee and Advantage Realty's detailed advertising and commitment to selling, our home sold for the highest sale amount in the building at the time.

Yes we highly recommend realtor Colin Lee and Advantage Realty"

"I want to thank Colin Lee for our recent sell & purchase. Colin handled our situation very well, I applaud his efforts... Colin handled it very professionally and was very optimistic throughout the entire process. He was very poised about it also... He was very customer oriented and showed us that he cares for the well-being of his clients."

"I was impressed w/ Colin's prompt response to my late night call following my initial thought of buying a house. Just saw a property online, dialed the number (Colin's) with the intent of just leaving a voice message and wasn't expecting a call back that night. In a few seconds, he called back and graciously responded to my inquiries. On the following day we saw 3 properties. To me, that is amazing... He's very knowledgeable, honors his words, committed, very objective in giving his input and has made sure that safety of my family comes first.... I commend his professionalism"

"This was the first home my husband and I purchased together. We were both looking for different things. Luckily for us, Colin took us on a tour of the available properties so we had a better idea of what's on the market and the current prices. From the tour, we could compromise and find a property that we were both happy with. When we found a property, Colin explained the process to us... Colin was also patient with us in our decision making process as we were not used to making quick decisions... He introduced us to a neighbor who lived in the community so we could ask questions and get a feel for the neighborhood. Having this contact saved us some money as she reported a leak prior to our closing date and Colin made sure everything was repaired prior to our closing date. We are grateful to have Colin as our realtor. He is professional and on top of everything. He has great contacts and goes the extra mile to make the home buying process a comfortable one."
