We met Tom thirteen years ago, when we were not really that serious about purchasing a place in Wailea. Despite that Tom took the time to visit with us and introduce us to the Wailea condo options. Since then he has shown us properties here in there ever few years. His patience, knowledge and relaxed Maui style allowed us to make a wonderful purchase. The mutual trust that was developed, without either of us knowing eachother was built on year over year with well comfortable showings supported by factual information on the market. THANKS FOR THE 13 YEARS OF HELP - WE LOVE OUR NEW HOME!!! Less ... More

Tom is a great agent. His knowledge of Maui especially Kihei and Wailea where I have bought and sold over the past 15 years. Once I did business with Tom, I didn't break for any other agents. I feel I have a great relationship with Tom and consider him my friend. I am about charachter and honesty. I feel Tom is all about that. He is an excellent choice if you want to start with the best. Oddly enough, I have had agents before use my vehicle to drive to look for property and not show appreciation in any degree, for the business you gave them. Not evan a note...a simple thank you note. So Tom is old school, with his appreciation for his clients, he'll make a perfect choice for even the most discerning of clients. Mahalo! Less ... More

I have sold my two homes with Tom Tezak. He is quite knowledgeable and we got 100% of our asking price. Tom researched the market and helped set the exact right price. He then orchestrated the sale while I was on the mainland. He made sure all the details were taken care of and I had no effort in the sale but to sign the documents which were all done electronically until the closing. Even the closing was painless. I highly recommend Tom to be your Maui realtor.

Tom is one of the premier Maui realtors. He has been doing this for so long and has so much local knowledge. You can be sure of the information and advice he provides you. Selling a home in the current Maui marketplace is difficult with Tom's persistence and knowledge we were able to get it done! And nearly at asking price! Once a home goes under contract the work really begins. Getting through all of the inspection and other knot holes is a daunting task. Tom worked hard with the buyer and buyer's agent to make this almost perfectly smooth! Bumps were added by me when there were any. Again, his experience helped me understand what was important and what was not and we sailed through a very short closing cycle. Tom has become a friend and I would strongly recommend him to you if you are buying or selling a home in Maui. I think you will like his style and manner and I know you won't be disappointed.

Tom has been extremely helpful in providing us with some great contacts and good advice as we settle into our new home. Representing both parties in a transaction can be tricky. Tom was most circumspect in dealing with both buyer and seller. It has been a pleasure working with him!

Tom has sold three Maui properties for us. The key to the success we had was timiing and Tom took full advantage of the timing we chose. He sold a remote Kaupo property for us after we swithched realtors in less tha 90 days. It had been on the market with another realtor for over a year. When we sold out Kihei home, was all sat down, my wife and I had a bottom line price. Tom recommended $100,000 than our bottom line and it sold for within $10,000 of list within 30 days. Granted, it was a heated up market, but Tom worked very hard for us. Recently we sold a N. Kihei condo and Tom again had us coming out shinning. Tom is professional, knowledgable and his over skill set is very high. I would completely recommend Tom without an ounce of hesitation.... Less ... More

We asked Tom to interview with us because of having known the MacArthur family (owners of Wailea Realty) for some years. When we interviewed him, he came to our house extremely well prepared, with market comparisons, local real estate information, etc. We had the thought in mind of listing our home at the end of 2012. We did not think August would be a good "selling" month on Maui. However, after listening to Tom we realized that he is the expert and he was able to explain the opportunities which were ahead for us, primarily because of low inventory.. He suggested a selling price range, explaining his logic in understandable terms and was able to reassure us with regard to our concerns if there were "too many days on the market." Not long after we signed the listing with Tom, we returned to the mainland and Tom kept in constant contact with us if there were any concerns. Needless to say, we depended upon him a great deal and he came through with flying colors! We accepted an offer in just 8 days! Thanks, Tom. Less ... More

After a long drawn out purchase of our new home on Maui we have finally made it to paradise. Tom has displayed a quality of patience that few in his profession posses. My wife and I felt that Tom always had our best interest at heart. During the transaction Tom had stepped up and performed beyond his duties and responsibilities. I can not in such a short forum begin to tell you the numerous things Tom performed to ease our trepidation and concerns, suffice it to say we would not hesitate to recommend anyone and everyone the services of Tom when purchasing or selling property in Hawaii.

I worked with Tom to purchase a condo in Wailea. I am an experienced real estate investor who has worked with numerous realtors in many different US cities. I was immediately impressed with Tom's responsiveness and his knowledge of his market. During the purchase process, not only was Tom on top of each task, but he was thinking several tasks ahead and addressing issues proactively. He also has great contacts in the area and made excellent recommendations on contractors and property managers. One of my best buying experiences ever! Less ... More

Listed home, but didn't sell
Tom Tezak helped me when no one else on Maui could! I was on a short timeline and needed an appraisal for my property in Kahakuloa Valley. I had 3 appraisers turn me away saying, "We can?t appraise your property without comparable sales in the area." I was referred to contact Tom Tezak by a friend and I also read all of his outstanding customer reviews on the internet. I am a person that works or shop's entirely on good reviews and I have to say that Tom is definitely a 5 star Realtor in all aspects. When I called Tom and explained my situation I was a little leery whether he would be able to help me due to the lack of comps in my area. Tom is a very pleasant and patient person to speak with, he listened tentatively and I think he could sense my frustration and need for assistance. Tom said "I can help you!" I also, mentioned to Tom that we are not selling the property so I am willing to pay you for your time. Tom told me "No problem, I work to build relationships, for referrals, and look forward to the learning experience with helping you." Within a few days he visited the property, dug into researching other ocean front comparable sales around the island and on neighbor islands. In my opinion this was not an easy task, however Tom produced a detailed listing proposal for me with plenty of time to spare which worked out great for my needs. Again, I offered to pay Tom for his time and service but he declined. I have not yet had the pleasure to meet Tom and look forward to the opportunity. Less ... More

Tom showed properties to us a year before we purchased a condo. On our second trip we asked him to help us again and he was most knowledgeable of the South Maui area. We had not finalized the purchase when we had to leave the island. Tom made the long distance negotiations and paperwork go seamlessly. He even kept small items we had purchased for the condo and delivered them to the unit after we had closed. We are confident Tom will be there to help us at any time, for any reason.

Tom is an excellent realtor. He knows the Kihei and Wailea markets like the back of his hand and gave me great insider information about all the investment properties in the area. He told me the one's to stay away from and those that were buys. He is honest, organized, extremely responsive, and thorough. He helped me buy a 3 Br investment property in Kihei and his expertise and advise were essential to me getting the property. Great guy too.

Tom did an outstanding job marketing and eventually selling our condo in Maui. It is a very difficult market and I feel that rather than just listing the property and waiting for a buyer to appear, he provided excellent service by marketing the property heavily and being available to hold it open frequently. He uses every modality to market the listing to local as well as potential buyers both on island and on the mainland including Canada. He is one of the hardest working real estate professionals I know. Less ... More

Tom is very knowledgeable about the Kihei, Wailea area on Maui. He was on our side when he negotiated the sale of our condo on our behalf and kept us calm during the 3 extensions that it took to get the deal closed. He responded to our every question and best of all, he went through our owner's closet and mailed us the items we wanted to keep which saved us a trip to Maui. We would highly recommend Tom to our family, friends, and anyone who is buying or selling real estate!

After we found a suitable property he definitely made the US sales process easier for us to navigate.

Tom Tezak was friendly, courteous, always professional and very organized. He was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. At our very first meeting he provided me with all the written information I would eventually need to purchase a home. He drove me around the entire south Maui area explaining the nuances of the various neighborhoods. He was remarkably patient as he walked me through 15 to 20 homes while I waffled and changed my mind on my price range and preferred neighborhood. He handled my indecision with his good natured attitude and his sense of humor. I have bought and sold several homes over the years and truly believe Tom is the best Realtor I have ever had the good fortune to deal with. His consistent follow through and attention to detail is very rare and I would highly recommend him to anyone wishing to buy or sell a home. Less ... More

It is is with great pleasure that I write a recommendation for Tom Tezak in Maui, Hawaii! I chose Tom to represent me in the sale of a Maui condo I had owned for ten years. After interviewing several different Realtors on Maui the choice was clear! I had sold real estate myself for 22 years on the mainland and knew what I was looking for in a professional to take care of my real estate interests while I was off island. I told Tom that my husband and I could come to Maui if necessary and he assured us that he would take care of all the many details on our behalf. He meant what he said and he is a man of his word! Tom listed the condo in Wailea, got me bids to have it painted and freshened up before it went on the open market, he arranged to have it shown to a prospective buyer before it was ready for the market and the day it went in the MLS he brought us an offer. All this in October 2010 and it was an all cash offer with a two week closing. Then Tom arranged for all the personal items we wished to keep, to be stored, packed and shipped to us on the mainland. It was all done with phone calls and emails over the computer. Mahalo Tom! I am referring everyone I know to you that needs real estste help on Maui! You're the best!

He has always been a source of good insight to the local market, and has always steered me right. And I consider him to be the kind of easy-going, natural person that you are glad to know.

Tom put me on his "Link to Listings" which allowed me to see every new property that came on the market meeting my requirements. When I saw an interesting property I would email or call Tom to set up an appointment. The house we ended up buying came across the link in my email box in the evening and I called Tom immediately and asked for an appointment to see the house the next morning. Tom set it up and we were able to get the first offer in and accepted.

Tom is very personable and easy to work with in all aspects of the dealings, and continues to be friendly and helpful long after the sale. Tom is an expert on South Maui properties as he has lived and worked in the area for a long time, which is not always the case with other agents.
