“They say that moving is one of the most stressful events you can go through. I believe it. The stress around moving our family across the country to a new area we knew nothing about weighed heavily on us. Compounding that stress was the fact that we had to navigate a competitive real estate market in the Seattle area and find a home for our family that ticked all the boxes. I spoke to other agents prior to Malia and found myself incredibly unsure that we'd be able to find a home we loved in the time crunch that we had. The moment I spoke to Malia on the phone, my fears dissipated. She was realistic and told us, yes, it would be a challenge, but that she would 100% find us a home and that she didn't have a client that wasn't satisfied at the end of the process. She was right, and that confidence was one of the reasons I knew we were in the right hands with Malia.
She is personable, filled with energy, extremely knowledgable and capable of handling varied personalities and difficult situations. We flew out here and I told Malia that I wanted to find a home that weekend. She cleared her schedule for us and spent countless hours touring homes, following up with agents and ultimately, helping to guide us through a successful offer on the home we now own. She worked with the sellers agent to ensure that we were able to work around the time limitations we had. Malia was incredibly attuned to what we wanted and needed in a home, despite the fact that she didn't know us intimately. We are so happy in the area that we chose, and the home, and Malia's guidance is one of the main reasons for that! We had the unique opportunity to also film House Hunters with Malia and learn even more about the person that she is, and along with being an extraordinary realtor, she's an incredible person. Not only did we gain a fantastic realtor we can always rely on, but we also gained a great friend, too! She's a gem!”
