Helped me buy home
I have bought multiple lots/dwellings over the years and I can say without hesitation Forrest is among the best I have ever worked with. Forrest was responsive and really worked the process well since this was a long distance purchase on my end. Throughout the process I felt he could be trusted and had all the best intentions in helping me secure my purchase.

Helped me buy home
Forrest was very helpful with negotiating a purchase of property in Kohala. He helped with the price agreement and the disposition of sellers personal property on the premises. As part of a more complex exchange transaction he helped us negotiate a delay in the close of escrow as well. He knows the the area and people and is willing to investigate issues like easements and boundaries. He is very easy to deal with.

And what a great pleasure to see your very cool new home being built. Thanks soooo much for working with me...and for becoming another member of our great Kohala community. For me, this business is not about selling land or bedrooms/bathrooms---it's about building a good future. Mahalo!

Forrest is upfront and honest with the great knowledge about the Island as a whole. What stands him out from all the others is his values of local community and his concern about the environment. His services were key for us to get our sustainable farm project going. With that my wife and I thank him.
Response fromForrest Arnold
Your project, perhaps more than any other I've worked with, shows an inspiring vision of harmony with the land and community---and is also full of heart and good style. What an honor to play a part in what you are creating---and to find such great friends in the process.

Listed and sold a home
Trying to sell property from the other side of the nation is difficult, if not impossible, to do well. Thankfully I have Forrest to represent me on the Hawaii side. He has walked me through every local regulation and form, and continues to assist and guide me as the sale nears its close. His ability to work with all interested parties, each with their own unique personality and agenda, has been phenomenal and has played a crucial part in the success of the process. Thank you Forrest!
Response fromForrest Arnold
What a joy to receive your wonderful review, K---This has been quite an adventure, hasn't it? Your trust and confidence have really been a boost to me as we worked through the sales process...and I'd do it all again for you anytime. Mahalo!

I found Forrest to be very knowlegable of the real estate market. As a realtor he was a pleasure to work with and was very professtional in his work. He was able to answer my questions and concerns, with ease and detail. If you're looking for a reliable and experienced realtor in north Hawaii I would recommend him. Definately a realtor I would use again as well as tell friends about.
