I don't know what a perfect relator duo looks like, but Mino and Sam might be it. They made our home-buying experience as painless as possible, never once pressuring us to make decisions we didn't want to make and always were there to support us—even to drive us to prospective homes. They know everything there is to know, including folks who can help you with any immediate renovation needs, and couldn't possibly be nicer people. I wish I could say I was getting paid to write this, but I'm not! I would recommend them to anyone and everyone.
My husband and I Have owned numerous homes and investments over the past 35 years and have worked with many real estate professionals along the way. It was a big decision for us when we decided to move from our family home of 23 years. We were so happy that we put our trust in Mino and Sam to guide us and manage all the many details. They really made it as stress free as possible. Mino and Sam have an excellent, well-earned reputation On Maui and we highly recommend them for a seamless transaction and the comfort in knowing you have an honest and reliable team on your side.
We have worked with Mino McLean for many years on the purchase and sale of real estate. We have found her to be professional, available, insightful and proactive. One of the things we appreciate is her ability to see her way through complicated situations and arrive at the desired endpoint while solving problems quickly and preventing unnecessary delays. Mino is also able to call on her large network of professionals in the real estate field on the island, who are skilled and ready to work, since they have had previous experience of her expertise. Another quality is Mino's ability to go beyond the call of duty, to advise and help with all sorts of issues that arise. She is guided by and lives the aloha that Hawaii is known for. Add to that a fun sense of humor and a sweet joie de vivre, and each transaction has been a pleasure.
Mino helped me both buy a house in Kula and sell a lot of land in Haiku. On both occasions I was off island and she took care of all the details. She made it feel like I was right there.
Both Sam and Mino are highly knowledgeable agents. They are ethical, professional, and extremely personable. Their attributes and compatibility make for a fantastic team! From our first introduction it was apparent, they were the right representatives for us. Selling our home during COVID-19 presented additional challenges all the way around. Mino and Sam were able to provide us with a level of confidence that all the proper protocols would be employed. All of the preparation and enactment of the showings were planned to perfection. From the time we decided to list our home until the closing date, the transition was seamless. You both and Maui are No Ka Oi!
Sam and Mino were very professional, responsive and helped make the sale of our home a truly painless experience!! They handled all offers in a timely fashion and we trusted their expertise and advice. Would highly recommend them.
Wow! Mino and Sam were there every step of the way and in between too! Their experience and expertise showed; negotiating the buying process, ensuring our best interests were always defined, and ensuring that there was no stone left unturned. Escrow was also accelerated for our convenience, with all the necessary inspections and surveys covered thoroughly allowing a timely move. The process was smooth, orderly and seamless. We are stoked to be new homeowners! Mahalo to our friends Mino and Sam!
Mino and Sam were consummate professionals throughout the entire sale process. They have a deep understanding of the Maui market, which is complimented by almost two decades of transactional experience.
I've worked with a lot of brokers over the last 20 years. Mino & Sam are among the very best. Most importantly, they listen closely to my requirements and then stay laser focused on only the right opportunities. They've now helped me close on two separate Maui properties and expertly negotiated significant seller concessions on both occasions. From what I've seen, Mino & Sam are both well respected across Maui and are able to capitalize on their relationships and connections to get things done for their clients. A few weeks after closing, Mino put me in touch with a potential tenant for my ohana. He's still there and pays the rent on time every month! Mino & Sam are my go-to resource for anything real estate related on Maui. Highly recommended.
After an unfortunate experience and wasting several months with another local broker we were extremely fortunate to engage Mino McLean and Sam Utley. From that point on the whole experience changed. Photography, marketing, video, prompt, connected and professional. Listed, sold and the deal was done. We were extremely pleased. In our view Maui is a tough market and you want the best, Mino McLean and Sam Utley.
After years of trying to build a dream home in Kula, Mino and Sam told Diana of an upcoming listing that would meet all her needs and more. Thankfully, Diana secured her dream Kula property amidst multiple competing offers
When the Olivers decided they wanted to live on Maui, it took years of visualizing. A photo of the view from Upcountry Maui was front and center on their vision board and when the right home in Kula came on market, they jumped on it. After loading their family & pets, they trekked from the East Coast to Kula and have never looked back.
For Kim & Dave, home ownership on Maui seemed like an unattainable aspiration. After meeting with a lender and discovering that their savings, hard work and low interest rates could make home ownership a reality, they reached out to Mino & Sam. Not long into their search, a home on a nice parcel of land, tucked away and quiet came on the market and they took the leap of faith to buy it.
Sally is always on the hunt for a property with undiscovered potential. When the 1920's former St. John's rectory came on the market, it was hard to tell from photos what they house had to offer (if anything). One walk through the home, and Sally had her vision. With her great eye and an excellent team, Sally transformed the home, while keeping with its traditional roots into a beautiful property that is the envy of her neighbors.
Mino and Sam bring a wealth of knowledge and full service to their clients, their top priority is making the buying and selling process as smooth as possible.
