My husband and I both love Howard. He goes above and beyond what a typical agent does. I was so impressed with the services he provided well past just helping us purchase our new home. He helped us find painters, maintenance workers, car rentals and he even picked my husband up when he arrived in Maui at the airport, as he had no car just yet. I am recommending him to my friends who intend to move over to Maui next year.

Howard honest assessment and advice helped me set a reasonable price point that led to an offer being made and accepted in less than 6 weeks. He and his college Aaron Knapp helped me prepare my home for staging and assisted me with any repairs that the buyer requested. Any questions I had were addressed with honesty and integrity. Overall the sale of my home went smoothly and efficiently.

I purchased through Howard in early 2012 over the internet and phone. He's laid back yet on top of all the details. He always makes a point to connect with me when I'm on Maui, just to grab a bite and catch up. Most important to me is whenever I've called him for advice he's helped without any immediate monetary benefit.( vacation rentals, contractors, etc.) I'm a small client of his but he's never treated me as such. When it came time to upgrade he listed and sold my investment property in 16 days at asking price! I wouldn't deal with anyone but Howard because he earns his client's loyalty, plus he's a cool dude!

Howard is an exceptional Real Estate Agent. He is well educated in the Maui market, and his hands-on dedicated work ethic allowed a dream to come true for our family. Howard's communication and follow-up skills were very important and played a large role in our purchase, as all transactions were completed while living on the mainland; until we were able to relocate full-time to Maui.

We highly recommend Howard. He is responsive and worked to get the deal closed. We had a few snags and he worked through them easily and kept us in the loop the whole time. We will use him again should we ever need property in Hawaii.

Howard went above and beyond what is normal of a Real Estate agent when my wife and I purchased our condo on Maui. His attention to detail , confidence and knowledge was not only comforting as we progressed through the home buying process but, he was always able to answer any questions quickly and thoroughly. We highly recommend that anyone with the slightest interest in buying or selling on Maui, seek out Howard Dinits. He will not disappoint.

We put our home on the market with Howard and he got us a buyer in 6 days. It's all about staging and team work.We were always kept informed about what was happening. He was always available and answered all our questions 7 days a week. He is there for you, the customer. We heard from him at least once a day. His expertise at marketing your home is Outstanding! The virtual tours are grand. The still photos are very professional! He even helped us find an agent to help us find a home in a city we were not familiar with. Howard also helped to co-ordinate the buying of our new home and made sure the 2 Title companies were on the same page. We are so thankful that a friend referred him to us! Less ... More

Howard worked very diligently to make sure my house found a buyer. I had a few unqualified buyers that delayed us but he stayed super positive and asked if I wanted any other exposure and I said no we'll get a good buyer soon and we did and got full asking with very little costs. Was a fast close though, and he helped with cleaning bill as we were exhausted, and had only a few days to pack a four bedroom up and get out. Thanks for all the extra effort to make this a smooth transition!! Howard is Easy to deal with and knows Maui real estate. Mahalos, Ed Less ... More

I was shopping long distance and my time on island to visit different properties was very limited Howard sent me information on many properties that were within my criteria, and organized appointments over a short period of time to accommodate my schedule. He dedicated several entire business days exclusively to me. Howard has very good relationships with a broad selection of; lending institutions, home inspectors, title companies, and appraisers so the whole process was meticulously organized and as painless as is possible in the current financial/real estate climate. Howard and his network of related professionals treated me like a favorite family member, and found me a home that I couldn't be happier with. Gary D. Less ... More

Howard is a great realtor! I would highly recommend him. I had a very hard time with getting other realtors to call me back and follow up with me before I found howard. I literally went through about 6 realtors before I found Howard! He cares about your needs and is very good with following up! I will be buying more land in Hawaii and won't hesitate to use Howard again! Thanks Howard! I have a few friends that will be calling you soon for real estate needs.

We have used Howard to purchase two properties on Maui. I was referred to him by a Big Island Realtor and am so glad we were. Howard is a true expert. On the phone he puts you at ease right away because you know that you have found a realtor that is experienced, listens to your needs and understands what you are looking for. Howard provides all the positives and potentials of a particular property. He understands the local market, has a ton of fantastic professional connections and really takes the time and effort to watch for that special property that you are looking for; I love that he just doesn't set up a "watch" online and expect you to search constantly in areas of the island you are not familiar with. He is constantly watching for you and will call you when he has found your perfect property. He and Mary (his assistant and beautiful wife) are so professional, almost always pick up your call on the first ring and even if it rarely goes to voice mail, always returns phone calls promptly. You can't find a better realtor, to represent you as a seller, as a buyer looking for investment, second home or luxury property. Howard is THE realtor to have to represent you. Less ... More

Howard helped us buy 3 condos. What amazing service we received. If every business person was as prompt as Howard at returning emails, phone calls and answering questions they would triple the economy... Of course I know his secret, Mary his beautiful wife and assistant. Who handles the office so efficiently. You can see the smile on her face when you talk to her on the phone. All of the sales were completed off island and with only the pictures he provided us. Which I only did because I trusted Howard fully. Because I learned from the start that he is very honest, reputable, and a straight shooter. His knowledge of all the aspects of real estate is by far superior to any other realtor I've ever dealt with. I have referred several other friends to him and they all sing his praise now also. Contact / hire him you won't be disappointed.... Less ... More

I could not have been successful without his help. I'm a home builder, and Howard was able to match me up with a home buyer who was looking for the same house that I was building. It was such a relief that I had a buyer lined up while I was building the house. Since then I have had many transactions through Howard. I trust Howard and he will always be my Realtor.

He really listened to my needs and showed me houses until we found The House, that as soon as we got there, I knew was the one. He was a strong negotiator and got a great price on the home, that was made even better when we found problems through a home inspection. When the appraisal came in we knew we paid way less than the current market value. I enjoy the ocean view from my home everyday and now wonder how I ever lived without one.

When my agent, a friend, dropped the ball completely when trying to sell my house, I remembered the comps she had given me, and the agent who had sold a lot of the houses on the list. It was Howard, and when her listing expired, Howard took over, and had it sold almost immediately, to my great relief. Later, he negotiated a foreclosure that I was able to buy with a friend for a very low price, which we were very lucky to get. You can't go wrong with Howard--he's the best.

Howard is always looking for opportunity, when he heard about our house, he jumped on it like a duck on a June bug...thanks to Howard's quick response, we bought the house before it was listed...then he worked with us for the next couple months as we guided it through the crazy Hawaiian escrow system...he was an invaluable asset to a buyer who had to be off-island.

Howard has helped me with many questions that I have had about Hawaii's Big Island and moving there. He has taught me about things to look for when buying a house or land out in Hawaii. He is one of the friendliest realitors out on the islands unlike some others who did give me the cold shoulder and suggested that I not move there. I tell everyone about Howard and his websites. When I do make the jump from Minnesota to the Big Island I know Howard will be there to help me land the perfect home or land for me. Less ... More

Howard is personable, open, knowledgeable and motivated without being pushy. After buying two properties and selling one with his help, he has become a personal friend who my wife and I visit each time we visit Maui. After working under the Remax banner for years, he has now gone out on his own with Dinits Realty. Best to you, Howard!

Howard was unbelievably attentive and thorough throughout the long purchase process. It all started with him dedicating the better part of 4 full days of his time to show me as many potential properties as possible during a brief stay on Maui. His expert advice and insights really helped us decide on the best property for our needs. During escrow, Howard was always there with timely expert advice at every step of the process. As an added bonus Howard is just plain fun to work with, plus Mary makes a mean cocktail. Plain and simple, Team Dinits is the best in the business. Steve Oates Less ... More

Howard really helped me not only find a great condo but work thru all the details that are necessary to close the deal. I am from Canada and the US works a bit differently for property deals and Howard made this very easy for me. He is honest and extremely knowledgeable about all areas of Maui which was also very helpful to me to narrow down what and where would be the best fit for me. Totally recommend him especially to my other Canadians who are considering property in Hawaii.

OK, this guy is THE BEST realtor we've ever had. Our deal had more challenges than we've ever seen and this guy was just a machine.

I am now a first time home owner on the Island of Maui thanks to Howard Dinits!!!! I cannot thank him enough. Being that this was my first time going through this process, there were so many things I didn't understand. Howard made the process go smoothly even though at times I got frustrated because there was so much I didn't know and understand. After meeting Howard, I knew that he loves his profession and he is excellent at it. Anytime I had questions, and I had a lot, he took the time to explain things to me. I am truly blessed to have met him. The passion for the profession he has is rare. I am really lucky. I will always have a place in my heart for Howard and my loan officer. They are the best.

Howard earned our respect, gratitude and admiration through the performance he delivered. We are from California and have been looking at Maui homes for years. We had several other agents in the past, all very good and professional. Howard however went above and beyond what any other real estate agent does. Even his peers told us we had the hardest working agent while on walk throughs in their listings, and we did a lot of those. We set a house hunting trip with Howard having never met him in person. We communicated via email and phone for months before setting a date to come to Maui and hunt for homes. Howard took it from there. The first day we actually viewed 20 properties and made an offer the first day. Over the two weeks we were on Maui Howard was with us taking us to over 80 homes in over 9 Maui areas. He learned what our needs are and more importantly, what my wife really wanted, liked and didn't like. Howard was with us all the way, every day. We made 5 offers while there and Howard negotiated and advised us as though he himself were buying. We ended up purchasing in Kihei and Howard has taken care of us and represented us during the closing phase while we have been in California. Like I said, just like he was buying for himself. This experience has reinforced for my wife and me that there are really great people in Maui, and Howard is the hardest working real estate agent we have ever met. No kidding. We are extremely happy and impressed with Howard, and his partner/wife, Mary. Those two have helped to start our new life in paradise and we consider them more than just a great real estate support team. We believe we have made great new friends in Maui.
