Long-term management of a property
As my property manager and owner of Remax on Kauai, I appreciate Jim's interest in my personal and professional concerns. Although he is not the realtor for the sale of my property, he responded to my request to be present at my meetings with the realtor. It is important to me to have someone I can trust and knows that the sale of my property comes with emotional, financial and social ramifications that is difficult for a novice seller to process.

I worked with Jim Pycha for 12 years as one of his Real Estate agents and then retired. I am now using Jim as my agent to sell my Hale Moi condo in Princeville. I have complete confidence in his competence and dedication. I also like him very much as a friend...unbeatable combination!

Listed home, but didn't sell
Jim has been helping us with the sale of our house for the last several months. He is experienced, knowledgeable and always available to talk. Before we listed the house we had also talked to him a number of times about other properties and suggestions on the remodel of our house. We would recommend him highly.

Jim was able to focus us down to specific locations on the island that would be best suited for what we were looking for. Of the 20 or so houses we wanted to see, he directed us to the one we eventually bought that wasn't even on our list. He was able to successfully negotiate a bidding war for the house in our favor. Great guy to work with. Jim is proof that all agents are not the same.

Hello, my name is Jim. My wife and I highly recommend James Pycha for any realty needs. We are in the market to purchase real property in Kaua'i. James Pycha assisted us. James Pycha is professional, courteous, understanding, pragmatic, insightful, very responsive, and has a great sense of humour. James Pycha was the sellers agent in the matter. While we ultimately did not purchase the real property, we feel so strongly about James Pycha's skills that we wanted to write a review and let everyone know how great he is. Thank you James Pycha!

I have known Jim for years and have used ReMax/Kauai as an agent in several capacities. Jim is highly knowledgeable of all Kauai real estate areas. Jim takes time needed to explain any details. Jim is especially skilled in negotiations and successfully closing deals. I plan to work with Jim on any Kauai real estate matters.

Long-term management of a property
Jim helped us located a retirement home on Kauai in late 2011. With his help we found a nice home in Kalaheo and purchased it in the beginning of 2012. Since we were a few years from retirement we selected him and his wife to manage the property and they succeeded in finding excellent tenants. We are very pleased with all aspects of Jim's services.

Jim's attention to the details of my needs went beyond even my knowledge and expectations. If there is just one thing out of many I would be grateful to Jim for is his patience and his encouragement in his support to seek what is not only with in my budget but within my realistic means of future accountability. I have worked with many agents in my years of investing and re-investing and never have I came across an honest man that truly has my and my families best interest in our lifetime investments. We have 4 young adult children and our need to secure their future in all that we invest in is our most highest priorities in our lives therefore we are very detailed and cautious of our association with anyone involving any of our investments, Jim worked with us for 8 months, consistent, diligent and honorable to our mission.

No job too small or too much to handle. His office locations are very convenient ? one on south end and one in Princeville.

He puts his clients' best interests first and meticulously provides information in all aspects of the profession. He's totally honest in all dealings. His incredible knowledge of the islands and the real estate professional place Jim head and shoulders above others in the business.

I have used Jim twice in purchasing a home and once to sell a home in Kauai. Jim is extremely knowledgeable of the Kauai market and very good at developing winning strategies to expedite the sale or buying timeline. Jim is a true professional but also responsive and easy to communicate with. I would not hesitate or think twice in using Jim's services again if and when the time comes.

Always a pleasure to deal with Jim. We met over 5 years ago and decided to have Jim manage our vacation rental. They have always remained reachable for all our needs. The unit os well cared for and rented for at least seventy five percent of the time. All in all , we know we can count on Jim and his staff to maintain our town home properly. Thanks again to his team at Remax.

Jim is not only a true professional, he is a wonderful human being. I listed my property on Kaua'i with him and he sold it quickly, handling some arcane legal and easement details with aplomb. He kept me well-informed of the progress of the sale, and even helped me with some issues that were outside of the purview of real estate. I can honestly say that I started with Jim as my realtor and ended up with him as my good friend.

Jim handled my very complex sell and purchase with a talent only someone who is passionate and love what they do and people... my journey took 8 months and with many homes I visited some favorable some non favorable, Jim was always positive and would say, it will come, don't rush it, be patient. I found that very unusual coming from someone who what I thought worked on commission. Jim's drive was to make this life changing experience one I would not look back on and regret but to look forward into my future with peace. It was later I had realized that with all his clients he had to tend to he made me feel like I was the only client he had. Never rushed, always a call away and there whenever I needed him to see a home I just saw, a brain I could pick or a question I needed to be answered and didn't know where to go for the answer. I've called on him since my investment 3years ago for advice and I know I'll be calling him for many inquiries and he will be there. Great Job done, Great Company, Great Man... Less ... More

In the process of finding a property, we came across Jim. He was friendly and engaged in the requests we were making. He went above and beyond to find the required information and if he did not have an answer, he would ensure an appropriate answer came in a short period of time. We outlined several conditions on properties in order to minimize viewing properties that were of no interest to us. Based on this information, Jim was able to schedule appointments of properties of interest only and not waste our time. Mr. Pycha is very knowledgable in the required documents, processes and mortgage requirements. He has made this experience an easy one for us. Less ... More

We recently purchased a condominium in the Poipu Kai area on Kauai. Jim spent a few days showing us the current inventory and helping us learn the market. He was very patient and easy to work with. Once we decided to make offer, Jim was very helpful in guiding us through a long, and at times, frustrating process. Throughout, he was very responsive to our concerns and we would highly recommend him to others looking for a straight-forward, professional and responsive agent.

First off, we had a blast with Jim learning the island, the culture, the plants, etc. Didn't know how much we had to learn after visiting on vacations well over 25 times over the years. Second, Jim quickly observed our tastes and preferences and never wasted our time looking at homes that we would not appreciate. House hunting and negotiating on the island from the mainland presents some challenges, but Jim made it seamless for us. Finally, he and my wife found the perfect house...except for the price, which was well above my preferred price point. With Jim's knowledge of the local market, including specific owners and homes, we were able to negotiate the price down to our preferred level. We couldn't be more happy with our home and the price. Oh, by the way, we bought the home next door to Jim. He's every bit as good of a neighbor as he is a RE agent! Less ... More

Very experienced, very pleasant and always able to reach either by phone, email and fax. Will go above and beyond the call of duty to make sure the property is shown in best situations. His staff and co-workers were all willing to pitch in if needed, so more than just him available. We were very pleased with the results. Less ... More

I have come to think of Jim as a pro's pro. He's spent his entire professional life in RE (over 30 yrs), most of it on this island of Kauaii. He has mentored some of the most successful agents working here today. Furthermore, he's always a straight shooter when it comes to pricing and prospects - two of the things I care about most.
