Maui?s Koogle (Kim Google!) We were looking online for a house in Maui and came across Kim listed on real estate sites, with very good reviews of her services and good sales. So we decided to contact her via email and use her professional knowledge in our hunt. Kim was absolutely fantastic. We were so lucky we chose her. Not only does she have a wide breadth of knowledge about Maui geography, beaches, weather, winds, housing and all the other things you need to consider when buying a property, she could also recommend someone for everything you might need. Our building inspector, contractor, property manager, etc, all came from Kim, plus she can help you out with doctors, dentists, hairdressers, you name it she has it covered. You don?t need Google, just use Koogle! We looked at a number of stunning properties over 3 days with Kim. She was very intuitive in finding exactly what we wanted. Once we found the Maui house of our dreams Kim immediately went into action and guided us through the process of purchasing a property on Maui, despite having to work with the seller?s less than professional realtor, tenants in situ, my continuous emails and my husband?s nit picking of the contract (he does this for a living). Kim was professional, friendly and our advocate throughout. Kim?s husband sent online documents for signature which made the documentation a breeze, plus Rorie kept us updated with a timeline. They made a great team with Kim at the helm. Kim definitely went the extra mile for us, attending the final walk through with the building inspector to make sure repairs had been carried out by the seller as per our contract. She even personally measured the kitchen for me to see if our kitchen island would fit, and counted the interior stairs so I knew how many non-slip doggy carpet pads I would need! Her attention to detail and willingness to do anything for us (we are not resident in Maui yet so were buying from the Mainland) made everything so much easier. I honestly cannot do justice to Kim in a review. She gave 100% with a smile and a great sense of humour along with her professionalism. We will definitely be using Kim if we have any future property deals to undertake in Maui. I would definitely recommend you use her too. She is the crème de la crème of Maui realtors. Less ... More

Kim really loves her work. It shows in her enthusiasm and dedication. She listened carefully to what I needed and wanted in all the situations during the purchase of my home. She handled the transactions in a very timely manner, making my life easier. She really knows her neighborhoods, what is selling, what the trends are in real estate. Since I have purchased my home I am considering buying a second and she has been an invaluable resource of information and help for me. I highly recommend her services! Less ... More

I moved to Maui 10 years ago and there I met Kim. She quickly became not just my Realtor but a friend. For these past 10 years that has continued to be so, and most recently sold one of my homes just this past year. Kim, her husband Dave, and their entire team are pros and know their stuff. No detail escapes them in the transaction. I referred friends on multiple occasions and have only great reports from them as well. If you are needing help with Maui real estate I can without any reservation say yes to Kim and her entire real estate team. It's that simple, these folks are professional, experienced, full time real estate professionals. Look no further. Less ... More

When my husband and I were transferred to Maui we were told to call Kim to help us find a home. As a long time resident she is very familiar with all the neighborhoods on Maui and what is available. More importantly she is an expert at asking the right questions so that she was able to narrow down the search to just what we were wanting in a home. She also recommended a good mortgage broker, was extremely diligent in making sure everything processed smoothly and that there were no surprises before closing. She is honest, helpful, knowledgeable, and always answers phone calls and emails quickly. We have now used Kim for several other real estate transactions and can say that you will not be disappointed when you call Kim. She goes above and beyond 5 Star quality service. Less ... More

Kim was extremely helpful to my husband and I during our home search. She worked very hard to get us appointments during the few days we were on Island and continued to do our leg work while we were still on the mainland. She even went above and beyond to help us secure a rental while we searched for our condo! She was very knowledgeable about the complicated (and sometimes frustrating) process of buying a home in Hawaii and helped to get our closing on schedule. Highly recommend Kim and Dave both! Less ...

As a result of working with Kim, we purchased our dream condo here on Maui a few years ago. It was a great pleasure to work with her. Kim is quite knowledgeable and very responsive to her customer's needs. I would recommend Kim to anyone. Another result of this transaction was that we became friends with Kim and her husband Dave. When we moved to Maui, my wife and I had no contacts on Maui at all. Kim and Dave were very welcoming to us when we arrived and as a result we are now friends. Please consider Kim for any of your real estate needs. Less ... More

Kim recently sold my house in Maui. To say she is the ultimate professional would not do her justice. She keeps you in the loop at every stage, is a wonderful negotiator and Kim and her team take the stress out of a stressful situation. Add to all of the above, a charming personality, and buying or selling - she is a "Must Have" in your corner. I wish I could take her with me on my move to Florida to help me with the purchase of my home there!

Kim and Dave are awesome!!! Both are fair, knowledgeable, and professional. They educate clients (selling/buying) objectively based on market tends and data that fit a clients needs. In 2014 Kim and Dave handled the sale of our condo and purchase of our new home. She was able to coach us through the selling and buying process which allowed a stressful situation to run smoothly. Her team of professionals that is typically needed during a real estate transaction is phenomenal!!!! As an added bonus Kim was able to get us a house in the neighborhood we wanted!! The kids love it, we love it and I truly cannot see myself living anywhere else. The experience of selling and buying was far better than our first home buying experience and definitely a great first selling experience. #mauiaina Less ... More

Kim had helped my mom purchase her home a few years back so I contacted her right away when my boyfriend and I were interested in looking for homes. We didn't know anything! And she helped us so much by explaining all the different options that we had. She also showed us a lot of different types of houses - from residential condos with maintenance fees to single family homes. She explained about buying land and also about short sales, etc. I definitely learned a lot while working with Kim. She was very quick with responding to me whenever I had questions or was interested in a property - she would get us a showing right away. She also was active about looking at places for us as well, that she thought could possibly fit out needs. Her interaction with the seller's realtor was very smooth and thorough. I'm a very detailed oriented person that asks lots of questions and she was always there to help! I would definitely recommend Kim Insley-Morrel for anyone looking to buy! Less ... More

Both Kim and Dave are great to work with. Their knowledge of the island, neighborhoods, housing trends and pricing is unsurpassed. They went out of their way to find us our dream home in Maui. They are very professional, but at the same time exert the aloha spirit to make you feel welcomed and comfortable. They pay attention to every detail from the first time you walk in the door of your potential new home to simplifying all the paperwork to complete for the home sale. They always are following up with emails and phone calls/texts to insure a smooth transaction. I would highly recommend both Dave and Kim to help you find your dream home in Maui. Less ... More

This is an easy review to write because Kim is not just a good real estate agent but rather she is an excellent real estate agent. We have been involved in three different real estate transactions with Kim. The first transaction, she represented the other party. We were so impressed with her that Kim is now the only real estate agent for us. It is her knowledge of Maui properties and real estate law combined with her responsiveness, and attention to detail that separate her from the rest of the agents. When something needs to get done with the sale of your property you need someone who has the knowledge but also will follow through and make sure every detail, every phone call, and all of the paperwork is complete and on time from the beginning of the transaction to the final signature on the escrow documents. Kim is that agent. She is the consummate profession. Even after the sale she and her husband Dave welcomed us to Maui. If you want an easy real estate transaction that you do not have say worry about, then Kim is your choice. Again, this is an easy review to write. Highly recommended. Less ... More

Customer service is top priority with Kim. We always felt like she had all of the time in the world for us. Kim is patient, knowledgeable and very professional. She walked us through the sale of our home step by step and went above an beyond the call of duty. We couldn't be more pleased that we chose Kim to be our realtor. Plus, with her husband Dave by her side, we got double the attention! We highly recommend this dynamic team. Jeff & Tara

Kim did the groundwork before I arrived in Hawaii, and had a number of properties in my price range for us to review. She was completely responsive to my preferences and found the perfect home for me. She managed the entire escrow process seamlessly for me even though I had returned to the mainland. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Kim to anyone looking for a home in Maui!

Kim Morrell and her husband Dave Morrell have been on Maui for decades. They know the island, it's history, and the real estate market perhaps better than anyone on the island. They understand the buying and selling cycles, the best places to invest and the best places to live on Maui. Because I know them both very well I have seen them both go the second and third mile with their clients. Both Kim and Dave are Christians that live their faith - that is not to say that they are perfect but it is to say that their lives and their real estate practices reflect their faith and their integrity. If you are looking to purchase or sell a home, apartment or condo I would strongly encourage you to meet with Kim and Dave and see what they can do for you. They get my highest recommendation and praise as people you can trust. Less ... More

Kim provided us with great insight specific to the units & areas we were considering. Her insight and projections were spot-on, evidenced by later follow-up. There may be things you simply can't, or don't want to, believe about the current housing market, but Kim's knowledge will prevail. Trust her!

It was wonderful to have Kim Insley-Morrell as my real estate agent. She helped find the perfect home for me on two separate occasions as well as sell my home. Kim is very kind, thoughtful and extremely attentive. She was always very knowledgeable about the local market and helped find the right property for me. Kim is very professional and proficient. Attention to detail - that's Kim! She was very punctual when responding to all my requests and also following the timelines for closing on the purchase of my home on Maui, the sale of my home & the purchase of another home. If she was unable to assist me at the moment, she would employ Dave Morrell or an assistant to help me immediately. She has a knack of making her clients feel comfortable; as well as understanding what I was looking for in a home and what suited my needs. On several occasions, Kim went above and beyond of what is expected from a realtor. It was a real pleasure having Kim as my real estate professional. If I ever have another need for realtor services, I will once again call upon Kim Insley-Morrell. Thanks Kim! Less ... More

Kim is responsive, professional, and GREAT to work with! Her knowledge of the market, along with the insight and familiarity with the neighborhoods and condo complexes was extremely helpful. I had basic knowledge of the area, but Kim taught me so much about each property and area. She had my interests in mind the entire time, bringing up pros and cons of each property and area. During the entire process, I never felt pressured to buy. Kim is amazing. Highly recommended, no ka oi
