If you want the true essence of “Aloha” in a person, Lori is that person. She is genuinely interested in you. She pays attention, is organized, personable and, will work with your schedule to make things happen! I am so grateful to have met her and will recommend her to everyone that I know!

Lori has truly proven to be a remarkable agent. As out-of-state buyers, we relied heavily on Lori to help us navigate our purchase. She exhibited exceptional dedication and commitment, assisting us every step of the way. From our very first interaction, it was evident that Lori has an in-depth knowledge of the local market and an understanding of our needs. Her responsiveness and clear & almost immediate communication were invaluable, ensuring that we were always in the loop despite

being out of state. What truly sets Lori apart from other agents we’ve worked with is her willingness to go the extra mile. She conducted numerous virtual tours of MANY prospective properties. Her thoroughness and attention to detail made us comfortable enough to select and purchase a property without actually seeing it in person. Even after we closed, Lori went above and beyond for us. Coordinating handyman, keeping an eye on our interior design team (making multiple visits and attending the final walk-through). She even went out of her way to oversee the purchase and delivery of a new washer/dryer. In summary, working with Lori, has been an absolute pleasure. Their dedication, expertise, and genuine care for her clients have exceeded our expectations. If you are an out-of-state buyer seeking a realtor who will go above and beyond to ensure your comfort and confidence throughout the entire process, Lori is undoubtedly the one you need. We are incredibly grateful for her assistance and could not recommend her enough.

Lori works diligently to find the right buyer for your home. She is knowledgeable about the Big Island of Hawaii and offers the best sources for whatever you’re seeking, whether a home, a good place to eat, the perfect hotel, the best beach, and so much more. After all, we are a BIG Island, and it’s hard for even local residents to know where to find everything.

The condo that we rented through First Island Realty was comfortable and exceeded our expectations. Breezes were plentiful, the lanai private and the surrounding forest land made for a natural setting. Kitchen equipment, beach chairs and snorkling equipment were all there. In addition we appreciated the large tube of reef-safe sunscreen for the use of guests.

It is our immense pleasure to recommend Lori McNeel as a real estate agent for any individual or family searching for the ideal home for their unique situation. Lori helped us find our investment property and treated us like we were VIPs. Because of her professionalism, we turned to Lori again when searching for our forever home. She is highly talented technologically and made excellent use of the relevant search engines and real estate databases to quickly find us a variety of homes for sale in the areas in which we were interested. She did not waste our time with homes that were out of our price range or not in line with our needs. A master with the contract negotiations, Lori came up with a deal that was good for us and made the seller happy as well, especially in the current market situation. She knows the big island like the back of her hand. There is nothing that escapes Lori’s attention when it comes to property for sale in this area. We found Lori to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if we were her only customers, although we know that was not the case. She returned all phone calls and emails the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant. She is also highly personable with an engaging personality. We are pleased to recommend Lori McNeel to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She is hands down the best in the business in our opinion and if we ever need to move again she will be our first choice in real estate agents.
