I have bought and sold property with First Island Realty. They go beyond what you might expect of a realty company! Trust them with your real estate needs!
I’m so glad that we had Laure help us find our perfect home on Big Island. Buying our first home was so scary and nerve wracking that we weren’t sure we could do it, thankfully for Laure and her team at First Island Realty we made it possible! Laure’s outgoing personality helped us come out of our shell and share with her what we wanted for our first home. Laure walked us through every step of the way, and explained anything that we were unsure of. Laure is very knowledgeable and really got to know us and our needs. We really appreciate the whole team and recommend to all my friends and family looking to buy their home in paradise.
