|We bought our Kona home in November 2018 and are so grateful we worked with Lance and Kimi. We started working with them in the spring of 2018, when we visited Kona and Lance took us to see many properties and informed us about microclimates and different neighborhoods. Then we headed backed to Boston and Lance kept in touch with us about listings, the market, and the vog. One time he texted us a picture of a gorgeous clear day, and a few days later he texted a picture of a voggy day, saying he wanted us to see that too - that's the kind of people Lance and Kimi are, honest and upfront. Once we found a home their guidance and hard work were absolutely indispensable to us. Great negotiating skills, responsiveness to our many questions and concerns via text, email and Skype, and through the entire closing process holding our hands and digging up and/or checking all documents with our best interests in mind. There was so much to keep track of and so much we weren't even aware of that needed to be checked, we are beyond grateful that we worked with Lance and Kimi. They are experienced, knowledgeable, efficient, thorough, professional, and kind.
You can't go wrong with Lance and Kimi!
Lance, we love that your client has an agent who cares about them the way you do.
Love the idea of sharing the shifting market guide this way, and love even more your commitment to guiding and advising your clients through the buying/selling process. We are grateful to be your partner!
Keeping Current Matters
Lance and Kimi did a fantastic job selling our multiple lots in Kau. We continue to recommend Lance and Kimi to our friends!
Thank you all for your “local kine” support of the Big Island Chocolate Festival this year. It was really very successful and your support helped us keep the ball rolling as we brought tickets in. I will let you know how much was raised for the schools, but wanted you to see this online news story that mentions your sponsorship. Hawaii 24/7 has quite a large readership. Thanks again!
In 15+ years of Hawaii Mortgage Company dealing with thousands of realtors, it is very rare when you come upon agents who really care and love what they do and want to make the transaction as wonderful as possible for all parties involved. Lance and Kimi go above and beyond for their clients and the mortgage professionals (like us!) who they are working with. In a world full of mortgage regulations, Lance and Kimi make sure to keep everyone on track of the timelines to ensure closing on time, which benefits both the sellers and buyers.
We are lucky to work with them and look forward to many more transactions together in the future!

I recently referred a client to Lance and he was spectacular. I refer a lot of agents outside of my market and Lance has by far been the most impressive I've ever had the pleasure to recommend. He has his thumb on the market and he is a master communicator. He is extremely good with follow up and he is one step ahead; just as you are thinking you want to reach out to check in with him, you'll find an email with an update answering the questions you hadn't even asked yet. He is everything you'd expect in a high performing professional and more. Plus his great personality makes him fun to work with. I'm truly impressed beyond all expectations.
Lance Owens is the one of the best realtors in Kona. He has done a couple of my real estate purchases and is always above board on expectations and knows the Kona market as well as anyone. He has helped tremendously in getting the right deal at the right price. He is always available and very generous with his time, a gift when you are as busy as he is. Lance is trustworthy to handle your biggest investment.
I have personally known Lance for over 20 years... Even before he became a realtor! Lance is not your typical realtor. His ethics, integrity and work ethic are second to none. He and his partner Kimi are dedicated to work hard on your behalf... Not just out to get a commission! I would recommend Lance if you really want to get the best offer on your property and I would definitely use him again as my real estate agent!!! You will not be disappointed! I give Lance & Kimi 10 stars!
Lance gives 100% always...we were lucky and grateful to be able to work with him several times! We liked the fact that he is honest, trustworthy, & always looking out for the best interests of his clients. At times the buying or selling process of a home can be a headache. Lance always has a demeanor that seems to make any situation positive. He exceeded our expectations and along the way gained our friendship. We would recommend Lance to our family and friends any day!!! Thanks ---Lance!!! :)
"I have had the pleasure of working with Lance in the Real Estate industry this year. His professionalism and knowledge is top notch and he will make you feel right at home with the assurance you need for peace of mind. Great communicator, hard working and I would highly recommend him on your next purchase or listing."
Thanks Lance! We wouldn't have made our out-of-country purchase without your local market knowledge and expertize in foreclosures. Friends say "You bought the house without seeing it?!" You bet! We trust Lance and would highly recommend him as your REALTOR.
Thank you, Lance for making a potentially "hazardous" transaction virtually painless! You ARE the expert we needed and we're so grateful for to
Aloha! There's a Hawaiian word which describes Lance well -- "kahuna". That's an expert in a profession, and that is indeed what Lance is. In addition to sound knowledge of real estate he has particular experience in short sales -- an important part of our local market. I've seen him get transactions done which no one else could have shepherded through successfully.
Lance is a very good, customer focused, individual. I would highly recommend Lance whether in sales, management, or any situation which requires a steady, cool headed, smart person.
He is a trustworthy, morally grounded, "say what you mean and mean what you say" kind of guy. Seems a rare quality in my dealings with others nowadays. I HIGHLY recommend you, Lance, to anyone in the business world!
Lance is one of the best short sale, foreclosure specialists I have worked with. He is tenanous, honest and hard working,doing whatever he can to help get the sale closed for the buyer and the seller.
His diligence and forthright manner is not only refreshing to work with, but he gets results and makes friends with clients along the way.
He always has a kind word and a smile no matter how tough the transaction may be he is positive that together everyone can make it happen.
Thanks again for everything and we appreciate everything you've put into closing this sale. It must have been a nightmare getting everything done! Hope you can at least relax a little after this sale finalizing....
Mahalo and ALOHA!
Thank you so very much for your help and persistence with this, too! You and Joreen were both excellent, and we so appreciate the help. Yes, one down, now if we can get I-1 closed we will be in much better shape.
LOVED the video! Thanks so much...Stan said you are like a mind reader and knew exactly the issues we would have with that place!
Just got back from showing my clients a house who referred (seller) to me. They couldn't thank me and you enough. They said (Seller) was in tears at how much it has relieved her stress now that its over. She has been dealing with a lot on her plate. She said this has changed her life for the better. She told them there were a handful of others trying short sales there before her but that you got hers closed before any of the others and that the other agents didn't seem to have a clue. Not sure if that's reality but its certainly her perception.
Thanks again. Sending more aloha your way!
