John is a "people-person", "user-friendly", cooperative, helpful, skilled, knowledgeable, integral, upfront, cordial, likeable, goes the extra mile and miles. He has performed a couple of sales/purchase transactions for us and he remains on the top of our list for real estate business. We highly recommend him to buyers or sellers of property. Thank you John. We appreciate your work and interactions with us! Mahalo Nui! -Dorothy-

Helped me buy home
As a new comer to Hawaii, it was important for me to find a realtor who would work with me prior to my move, assist me during my move and once here, work tirelessly to help me achieve my real estate objectives. I can honestly say that John provided all those services and more throughout my home search. Once here, John spent countless hours searching for just the right home that would accommodate my family and pets. John not only knows real estate processes, he understands and listens to individual needs. Once we found the perfect home, he went to work on negotiating the best possible deal in a very complex situation. Many realtors have experience but John uses all of his professional and life experiences to the best advantage for his clients. It has been over five years since we moved into our home and I would not hesitate to recommend John Petrella as the go-to-realtor here on Hawaii Island. You will not find a more knowledgeable, committed and dedicated agent. As a former real estate agent myself, I highly recommend John Petrella. Less ... More

None. We connected, but it did not work out.
I tried unsuccessfully contacting John several times prior to my visit to the Big Island to find a home and finally got a reply from someone else in his office. She called couple of times describing the island, but didn't seem to be interested in showing me any properties. My visit came and went without any further contact. Upon my arrival back on the mainland, another agent from the office called and offered to help. Too little, too late.

Helped me buy home
It was such a pleasure working with Larkin. This particular transaction involved 3 parties, 1 in hawaii, and 2 (myself and my husband) in California. Larkin always responded quicky to all my emails and phone calls and was informative, professional, and extremely helpful. She also made me feel at ease by acknowledging that although we were in california she still treated us as local people. That was extremely important to me. She was easy to relate to, easy to converse with and never made me feel like my questions were "elementary." Going forward, If i should ever do another real estate transaction in the future, I will be sure to look her up. aloha and mahalo Larkin for making us feel right at home!! Less ... More

I emailed with a member of his staff about a possible move. She was incredibly friendly and fast responding and had all the answers I needed. If I do follow through with the move, I will be sure to work with John and his team.

My Realtor Galyn Williams knowledge of East Hawaii, helped me pick the perfect property in Hawaiian Paradise Park. Their real estate office was extremely helpful and made buying a property very easy to do. The entire process was done while I was living on the mainland. I found the property I wanted, went through the entire escrow process and closed the deal all from the comfort of my home here in Alaska. My Realtor Galyn, helped me negotiate a much better price than I was expecting. Using a local Realtor saved me both money and headache. I never knew both buying and owning a property in Hawaii could be so easy. I am already shopping for another property and will be using Local Hawaii Real Estate again...Marie Less ... More
