"As first time home buyers and working with our military timeline, we had a ton of questions on purchasing a home. From our first impression of Mike, he made us feel comfortable and understood our particular situation. Mike explained every question we had and frequently contacted us throughout the entire process with every update he had. Mike has a very thorough knowledge of the island and was able to answer any question about the locations we looked at. When we finally found the home we wanted, Mike made sure to explain every step that we would need to take from start to finish, never making us feel rushed. The responsiveness of Mike and his team made buying our first home a very easy and comfortable experience. If i could give him more stars I definitely would! I would highly recommend Mike and his team of professionals to anyone interested in searching for a home!"

"Wow. I cant describe how impressed I am with Greg. He helped my family through a long and sometimes frustrating 3 way property deal. One sale and two buys. He was meticulous and extremely assertive in all aspects of a complex situation. He dealt on my behalf with difficult buyers, attorneys and brokers in the New York all in an effort to ensure property purchases here in Hawaii went as smoothly as they could! I knew I was in good hands when he would brief me on updates and plans of action. I dont know of many people that could deal as effectively with 3 Sellers, 3 Agents, 2 Mortgage Brokers, 2 Attorneys across 6 time zones on a seeming daily basis! Now that Im prepared to purchase another home Ive asked Greg to again be part of my team. Some may read this and analyze what I write next with some curiosity, but having Greg on my side is like having my own personal Terminator! He will not stop until our mission is complete..and that let's me rest easy!"

"I would highly recommend Greg and his team. Greg is really good at what his doing. So far he is one of the best realtor I've known. He is very helpful and very honest. He will tell you if the house is worth it or not for its asking price. My experienced with Greg and his team was great. I would definitely contact Greg whenever we decided to sell our house or buy a new house. And of course, I would recommend him to my friends. Thank you Greg! We really love our house!"

"I work with many realtors in my profession as a mortgage broker, so I think it’s fair to say that Mike is not just a good agent, he’s by far one of the best I’ve had the pleasure to work with both professionally and personally. I was working with another realtor to sell my current home and purchase a new one, but after working with Mike on several files and learning how he treats his clients with such care and who he was as a person, I chose Mike and his stellar team instead. I made the right decision. We had to do a simultaneous sale and purchase so right off the bat Mike had his hands full. From the day our house went on the market, the sale of my house and the purchase of the new home closed within 11 weeks. There were several times throughout the process where I would look at my husband and say “I’m waiting for something to go wrong because I cannot believe how stress free this process has been”. But nothing ever did. What makes Mike stand out from the crowd is his ability to shift his client’s views of buying and selling property as being such a daunting process to really exciting and fun. His extensive knowledge and integrity made me feel at ease and comfortable to put such a large investment in his hands. No task is too small and no question is left unanswered. I’ve never met a more prepared and efficient professional in this industry. His support, knowledge, kindness, and positive demeanor throughout the process was truly what we valued the most. Even after the close of our home, he’s still checking up on us to see how he can help with anything from advice on remodeling to coming over to help with just about any project. I cannot say enough good things about Mike and his team. He surpassed our very high expectations and I would refer him to anyone. Thank you Mike & Lisa! We appreciate everything that you have done for us. All the best"

"As a first time seller, we found Mike Strying thru the Realtors pages, hoping & praying we made the right choice which we sure did, after hiring him he was able to find a buyer within a month & a half. Our home was closed and sold within 2 months. It went so smooth we could not believe it. We are still very amazed with what Mike has done for us. He's also one of the finest, knowledgeable & humble people we have met. We strongly urge you to consider Mike Styring as your Realtor, you will not regret it."

"Michael helped me with my recent 1031 exchange of my mainland property. From the start Michael was thorough and paid attention to my needs. He will indeed get back to you as promised, and I mean without fail! I was on Oahu for a couple of weeks and Michael showed me prospective properties that fit my situation. But then I had to leave the island. The final selection was of a property that I had never set foot in, but Michael made it work by sending me videos. I was concerned that the location of the unit next to a common laundry would be a noise problem that would interfere with my sleep. Michael then did a load of laundry there and recorded noise levels via video and sent it to me! None of the details were allowed to fall through any cracks, from the appraisal through the inspections, through the final walk through and closing, Michael was there to be sure everything went well. I may have another two transactions for real estate on Oahu, and I will turn to Michael Styring to assist me with that. I don't think I could've found a better agent had I scoured the entire island for one."

"Michael helped us find the perfect rental investment property in Hawaii. He was very responsive right from the start, even though we lived numerous time zones away. He sent us numerous potential properties before our visit, and then spent hours with us each day of our visit until we found the perfect place for us. He was always ready with documentation about each location, and his local expertise helped inform the visits. He drove us to our areas of interest on Oahu and even knew how to avoid the tourist parades that popped up twice during the visit. Once we had decided on a location, he also referred us to excellent professionals to help us finish the deal. He and his new associate Lisa were very efficient and helpful as we moved through the paperwork process to the final closing. We’ll continue to do business with Mike as we move to the property management stage next. Mike is the most reliable and helpful agent in Hawaii. We wish we could add a sixth star!"

"Mike Styring found us the perfect property! Before we left Connecticut for our yearly Hawaiian vacation we contacted Mike to let him know that we would be coming to Hawaii and this time we were interested in buying an investment property that could potentially be a transition home for us in the future when we retire. Right from the start Mike got us to focus on our priorities for this real property investment. We got to Hawaii and the fun began! (it really was an enjoyable experience) Mike had it all lined up. We visited many properties to help us understand the Hawaiian market. Mike was endlessly generous with his time and vast knowledge of real estate in Hawaii. Once we found the one that met everyone of our wishes, he walked us through every detail of the buying process (contract negotiation, inspections, hoa review, escrow - you name it, he did it!) including even lining up a home inspector while we were still in Hawaii so we could be present for the inspection, under very tight time constraints. His attention to the details didn't end when we left for the mainland, staying in constant contact with us to make sure we were kept in the loop. He went out of his way to make our home buying experience an outstanding one. Of course we highly recommend Mike for your real estate needs."

"As a first time home buyer, Mike made what seemed like a daunting process as easy as possible. He has a very solid understanding of the market and was able to present a number of potential homes that fit my requirements. Mike was very responsive and was able to answer all of my questions. Once deciding on a potential property, Mike recommended terms to include in the offer that were instrumental in it's acceptance. He's a stand up guy and was a pleasure to work with. I'll be recommending Mike to anyone in my network considering purchasing new home."

"Coming into the market as first time homebuyers, we quickly realized the competitive nature on the the east side of Oahu. Mike was always available, at a moments notice, to help us navigate through multiple open houses and offers we made. Mike has extensive knowledge of the real estate market and community. Without his expertise we would not have been able to obtain the home of our dreams that was also within our budget. Thanks to the Hawaii Realty International ohana we are now homeowners!"

“I have known Mike for 10 years. He was my agent when I bought a house in Kaneohe in 2005, and he was again my agent when I sold the property in 2015. In the intervening years we remained in touch as he kept me current on the market and helped me determine when the time was right to sell. In all respects Mike is an OUTSTANDING broker/agent. He is knowledgeable and dependable. Perhaps just as important to me as an out-of-state property owner, he was very proactive and helpful in attending to all the things I would have struggled with from the mainland. He definitely went "above and beyond" in helping me prepare the property for sale. Once we were listed, I was absolutely amazed at the masterful way he handled the marketing of the property. It is an understatement to say that I was in very good hands throughout the process. I am very pleased to offer my wholehearted and enthusiastic recommendation of Mike Styring. He will do an outstanding job for you!

"From the very beginning of our family's quest to find the perfect home, Mr. Styring worked diligently to meet our requests in viewing homes that would work for us. He kept us up-to-date with all the new listings and was prompt when meeting us for showings. And even when we were unsure and couldn't quite decide, he was very patient and understanding. As a military family, finding an area that still kept with the close knit community and support was extremely important as well as an area that wasn't too far out. In the end, Mr. Styring went above and beyond by helping us find our new home and made sure all necessary steps were completed all the way past our closing. We are extremely impressed with his services and the services of his counterparts. Together they truly care about finding a family a "home" and not just a house. We will definitely recommend Mr. Styring to anyone that is deciding on purchasing a home. We thank you, Sir!"

“Mike is the BEST!! He gets the highest rating ever. When my ohana started looking for a house we were lost. UNTIL Mike came into the picture. Wow! He helped us find places in our price range. He gave us great advice and direction. He kept our focus even when the financing took longer than anticipated. He hooked us up with good people, and kept in contact with us during the process. I can honestly say that without his help and professionalism our ohana would not have the new home we have today. This man went the extra mile. Heck he went the extra hundred miles. Even the finance and escrow folks said we were lucky to have such a good realtor. Grab him if you are looking for someone to help negotiate the path to home ownership. Michael Styring is the greatest!”

“If you want to hire a realtor who is a consummate professional, I highly recommend Michael Styring, without reservation. I have bought and sold multiple properties in the past, and am generally leery of realtors’ zeal to make quick sale/buck. However, Mike surpassed my highest expectations of what a true buyer’s agent or professional realtor should be. Mike always put my interests first, personally showing me over a dozen properties I was interested in. Then Mike promptly wrote up contract offers for 3 (!) purchase opportunities where we wanted to score a deal/steal, but I refused to pay full price! So, after those were not meant to be, they were learning lessons for me, I finally found my dream condo by Diamond Head! Mike incredibly was able to get the purchase price down from a whopping $569,000 to just $510,000, with a surgeon’s skill and finesse. Mike is an absolute class act pro, always available/returning my calls immediately, I could reach him to discuss strategy at all hours. Mike has a wealth of experience and knowledge to help both buyers and sellers interested in securing his services. I am very happy with my transaction’s completion, and it’s a wise decision to have him on your side! I have lovely home in beautiful Hawaii, thanks to Michael Styring.”

“6 or 7 years ago we randomly called Styring for some comps. It went no further than that at the time but I remember that he was really helpful. So when we were ready to sell our unit, we contacted him again. And he REMEMBERED us. I was kind of flattered, but now I realize this is one of his strengths as a realtor -- the human connection. We had some frank, honest discussions. Real estate transactions are big deals for buyers and sellers. A lot of money, important life decisions. It's nice to have an agent on your side that gets that."

"After another rent increase & a curious browse through the American Realty web site, we were introduced to Mike. Immediately, & not at all expected from past experiences, this was a comfortable interaction. Mike was not at all pushy but very open to educating us first-time home buyers. He readily answered all of our many calls & never tried to push us out of our price range or away from what we wanted in a home. Very polite & friendly, he had obvious integrity and cared more about what we wanted than what he could sell. And unlike all the nightmare experiences we've heard about in the home buying process, our experience was quite stress-free. Mike always gave a heads-up to the challenges that could arise. Few did, & many people commented on how quickly the escrow process went for us. Even we can't believe we own a home. We're so thankful for all of Mike's help & highly recommend him to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home."

He took the time to listen and get know what we were looking for and then tailor the showings to explore our wants and needs. He was positive during our showings, pointing out aspects and potential to each of our desires. After talking with other realtors, we decided to work with Michael because he respected the area we were looking to buy in and never tried to sway us away from our desired neighborhoods. We are so happy with our new home! Thanks Michael!"

I worked with Mike when I purchased my townhouse in 2008 and again when I sold the unit this month. He is a fantastic realtor who goes above and beyond for his clients. He typically responded to emails at all times of the day and on weekends/holidays. He is trustworthy and extremely knowledgeable about Oahu. I absolutely recommend him!
