Testimonials for Our Team
Gina Duncan, REALTOR® (PB) ABR, AHWD, BPOR, CIPS, CRB, CRS, e-PRO, GRI, RSPS, SFR
Gina is my Maui go to real estate professional because of her integrity, wonderful supportive positive personality and absolute professional real estate acumen. Gina was highly recommended by friends and I did not know her at the beginning of my listing. From the moment we met at our prescreening interview through the conclusion of the sale of my property, Gina remained uplifting, shared appropriate information in a timely manner and flexed according to my needs (not her needs) to ensure I was completely satisfied. She advised me and walked through every challenge during the process. We are pleased with the sale of our property and enjoyed working with her. I have already let Gina know I plan to keep in touch with her and will look for other opportunities to work with her.

I owned a one of a kind estate property on Maui. The home and cottage also included a tennis court, luxurious swimming pool, spa, and 4 car garage. I wanted to sell the home quickly and get top dollar for all the efforts that went into the top to bottom remodel of the estate. I was a first hesitant to have Gina Duncan list the property as her office isn’t in Wailea, however her marketing plan, determination and her entire team’s efforts to sell the home went above and beyond my expectations.
Gina understands the luxury Maui market. We sold our home and closed in under 3 months in a depressed market. I’ve developed properties around the world and would not hesitate to have the Fine Island Properties Team represent me again. I have also referred her to other friends on Maui to utilize Gina’s superior skills to sell their homes.
– Sky L.
Gina Duncan is the best, she is quick, precise, professional and courteous at all times, whatever needs we have, she is prompt to take care of, never say no to the clients, her entire group of staffs are the same way, highly efficient at all aspects, we really enjoyed working with her, and if we ever need an agent ever again, she is no doubt the only choice in my book.
– Jack C.
I’ve known and worked with Christina Bakeman, Broker for over 15 years, both as a fellow realtor and as a client, buying my own properties on Maui. Chris has proven herself time and again with her energy, expertise and love of helping both buyers and sellers achieve their real estate goals. You won’t find anyone more honest, trust-worthy, and easy to work with on the island – and she gets results! I highly recommend Chris to anyone who wants the best service and commitment from a caring, dedicated professional.
– JL Viniko
Oh my God!!! Thank you so very much. There are not sufficient words to express how unbelievably grateful we are for you. You are truly the most professional, diligent, compassionate human being. It has been an absolute honor to have you represent us. Thank you so much.
– Nancy H.
Several years ago we needed a local Realtor to assist us in the sale of a family property in Upcountry Maui. Living on the mainland, it was important knowing we could count on Matt, in Maui, with his knowledgeable assistance helping us prepare the house to be placed on the market and then following through the entire sale process. Great service, competence, and a sense of humor go a long way in the Real Estate business. And…Matt knows Maui!
– Terry M.
I have known Matt for 40 years, and trust him to do the right thing in all circumstances.
– Harlan H.
I have known Matt Daniells for well over 10 yrs. He has helped me both as buyer and seller of real estate. I have found him to be very honest as well as knowledgeable in the fast changing real estate market on Maui. Being a long time resident himself he understands the different neighborhoods and cultural diversity of Hawaii. I would (and have) recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate on Maui.
– Randy Y.
Where do I begin? Eleven years ago I met Matt and asked him to help me find a home for my parents. They were living on Oahu and my father was recovering from major surgery and now disabled and my mother who was already physically disabled. What could of been the most stressful time in my life, was made easy with Matts help. He never lost patience with me and my list of demands. He understood the needs of Senior living. From house hunting to closing he was personable and the most professional. With Matt’s help my parents had a very smooth transition. I should also say that we stayed within our price range. We have remained friends over the years and about a year ago we talked about possibly finding a place in Hana where my husband and I could just go to relax and possibly retire. What started out as a dream has now become another reality. From the first walk thru to closing Matt made it a wonderful and stress-free experience. Thank you Matt!
– Colleen H.
I’ve known Matt for over 25 years. He is one hell of an athlete and real estate broker. I called Matt and told him I might consider selling my Maalaea condo in Island Sands, he not only sold the unit in very short time he made the whole process enjoyable and worry free. He even went out of his way to monitor the minor construction necessary to facilitate the closing. He was very helpful, personable, diligent, and professional. We highly recommend Matt to anyone considering the purchase or sale of Real Estate on Maui.

Gloria Ezera, REALTOR® (S), ABR, GREEN, MRP, RSPS
“We worked with Gloria Ezera in the fall of 2016 to sell our home in Iao Parkside, Wailuku and purchase a condominium in Kihei as we wanted to downsize. We received multiple offers the first day the house went on the market, thanks in large part to Gloria’s incredible work. Gloria’s combined marketing/sales experience, organizational skills and unrelentless work ethic had the house sold and us in our new home within 48 days. She is the first person I would seek out, and refer to anyone, whenever real estate assistance is required. We had a great experience! I cannot thank her enough.”
– Catherine D.
“I just wanted to take the opportunity to express my gratitude for all of your hard work.
You were very through and professional. You did a lot more for me than I ever expected from a Realtor.
I really appreciated how you were on top of things and how you were able to do open house several times a week. I would highly recommend you to anyone who needs a kind, considerate, and professional Realtor in the future. Thank you very much.”
– Chiyoko O.
“Gloria is amazing! We’re so happy to have worked with her and to know her! I saw a home we loved while browsing the real estate website and literally the day after contacting Gloria we were viewing the home. When we actually walked into the home I knew, I had to buy this home and I told Gloria “we love this home, we want to buy it!” She said “okay, we need to move quickly!” The next day we were putting in a bid and we were able to outbid another buyer! Gloria helped us through the entire process even accommodating us to have contractors look at the place before we even officially owned it. Gloria also was very meticulous during the entire buy process, there was a point when the seller was trying to get a bit more money out of us but Gloria had built in protections in how she wrote up our counter offer and we didn’t have to go up anymore. So, not only were we in the process of buying but at the same time Gloria was helping us to sell our old place! It was crazy but Gloria helped us so much, even setting up a cleaner and plumber where needed. She definitely went above and beyond the call of duty, even answering our texts late at night to ensure everything went smoothly. We couldn’t be happier with our home purchase and sale, which we got more than we wanted! I would and do highly recommend Gloria as your realtor. There are realtors and then there is Gloria who not only provides an excellent service to you but does her job superbly. We can’t wait to buy our next house so we can work with her again!”
– Farron C.
“From the first point of contact, Gloria was “on it”! She is engaging, hard worker, encouraging and knowledgeable. She was flexible in all ways, even to help me move furniture around to stage my home for sale! I appreciated that she continually provided market comparison reports.
I’m sorry that we didn’t have the time to become great friends, as I’m sure we would have been!
Your home will be in wonderful, competent hands with Gloria!”
– Nancy M.
“Gloria was such a pleasure to work with. She was there to answer all of our questions every step of the way. Very honest and really looks out for her clients.”
– Jasmine C.
“Fine Island was a professional agency to work with. Gloria Ezera managed the sale of our family home and we were very pleased with her diligence to detail and for her expertise in the real estate industry. Her team was responsive and ensured the home was staged to attract buyers. I am grateful the process is over and would recommend Fine Island, Gloria Ezera and her team. Within two weeks on the market there was a buyer. Sold as well.”
– Zillow User nova21969
“Sandra Daniells was the right choice for me when it was time to sell my house. Sandra is friendly and kind which makes her a pleasure to work with. Sandra was so patient and great in explaining the ins and outs of the selling process and with answering all my questions about the what’s and whys on signing so many documents. Sandra is very thorough and very professional. I would highly recommend Sandra to anyone that is looking to sell or buy a home.”
– R. Smith
“You did so much for us in selling the house…. What a relief!.”
(For son/grandson) “Thank you for helping us in making their living conditions better.”
– M. Matsui
“Bless you and Thank you, for all you have done.” “…you always came through, way beyond anything any client could have ever expected.”
– R. Myers
“Just wanted to let you know how thankful we all are for everything you have done for us. There is no way we could have accomplished any of the projects the property needed. You were definitely the main reason the hoes sold so quickly. We were lucky to have you as our realtor.”
– Kasai family
“Lesa Lees Warner-Burke is an amazing realtor! I hired her to help me with a very complicated 1031 Exchange between Hawaii and California. Her knowledge and expertise were invaluable! Lesa read the market and informed me when it was the right time to put my place on the market. She was spot on. Within a few weeks my condo was in escrow, and soon after I was able to locate a place in California to purchase. Lesa stayed on top of the Exchange to make sure it was seamless to me, and she helped me avoid unnecessary taxes. She is smart, ethical, professional and personable. I never felt any pressure. She listened to my questions and got back to me promptly with accurate answers that guided my decisions. Her life wisdom helped me navigate the difficult negotiations to help me feel that buyers and sellers alike all received what they needed to feel that the deals were fair. I give her my highest and unreserved recommendation!! (5 Stars!).”
– Kathleen P.
“I have used Maria for multiple real estate transactions, both selling and buying properties. What impresses me most about Maria is her integrity. She is incredibly detail-oriented, working tirelessly to make sure every detail is being properly addressed in a timely manner.
She is always kind and quick to respond to her clients’ inquiries, fully explaining the often-complicated steps in modern-day real estate transactions. I am proud to call her my realtor and also a good friend.”
– Maureen K.
“We first met Maria Ginnebaugh in 2007 while she was working with Coldwell Banker Island Properties. She showed us many properties and she was the realtor involved when we bought our condo property in Maui in April 2007. Maria’s attention to detail in all the docs was superlative. She was readily available to address our questions/concerns. She is very knowledgeable of Hawaii properties and real estate market.
In 2018, we decided to sell our condo in Maui and move back to the mainland. Maria, as our realtor, again was very thorough in getting all of the requirements and docs through accurately and timely. She was able to sell our condo close to our asking price. We have been very satisfied and happy with the buying and selling work Maria has done for us. We recommend her highly as a Maui/Hawaii Realtor.”
– Jane and Richard E.
“MARIA IS, IN OUR OPINION, ONE OF THE BEST Maui real estate agents. She is professional and courteous in all situations and pays attention to detail, no matter how small, to be sure everything is as it should be. She aggressively advertises and routinely holds open houses for her listings to ensure the fastest sale possible. When buying a property, she scours all her resources to find exactly what we are looking for. Once a property is in escrow, she presents us with a calendar noting all deadlines, then follows up with an e-mail on the dates of the deadlines to be sure that everything progresses smoothly toward closing. Michael and I had about 5 real estate transactions with Maria, for the 16 years we have known each other. Not only it was a pleasure to work with Maria, but it was very comforting to have someone with such high integrity represent and advise us.”
– Michael and Kathy B.
“Look no further if you are looking for the most: thorough, thoughtful, precise, attentive, organized, honest, trustful, friendly, speedy and wise realtor, then Maria is definitely the realtor for you. I cannot say enough about Maria! Currently I am an off island owner who had a property with a house and cottage that each needed to be completely renovated from roof to floor. There is absolutely no way I could have gotten it done, let alone with such taste, efficiency and quality work without Maria on my team! She was absolutely incredible throughout the entire process. She was so on it that we even managed to complete all renovations including obtaining permits within 5 months! When the property was ready for market it sold faster than I anticipated, above asking price with multiple offers, plus to the best new owners I could ever have wished for this sweet and special property. I had to have complete faith and trust in Maria and she far exceeded my dreams of what I could accomplish.
She also was the realtor (in 2003) when she found this property for me to purchase. Back then I had no intention of purchasing a property because I didn’t think I could pull off putting in an offer, let alone obtaining the financing quickly enough, however I knew I really wanted to try and figure it out. Maria helped me do just that! I had no idea I could find when I wasn’t looking, put an offer in and become owner of a property within 72 hours. The process was seamless and again I attribute it to all the qualities I listed above. Maria is the best!”

Deborah L. Nunan, REALTOR® (S)
“Debbie Nunan was the real estate agent for the sale of my home in Haiku when I decided to return to the mainland. She worked excellently with potential buyers and was a whiz at staging my home, and in the end her preparation helped closed the sale. She was the perfect agent, hard working, detail oriented, and good with people. The sale of my home went so smoothly.”
