MARI HEATHER TOPSELLER E-BLAST

 

LIST Sotheby’s International Realty is proud to congratulate Mari Hirano and Heather Selvitelle for receiving “The Most Transactions in Real Estate” award by Hawaii Business magazine. In addition to the number of transactions, Mari and Heather are consistently recognized by their clients as real estate professionals who deliver exemplary service.

Mari Hirano is a world traveler who enjoys outdoor activities, such as surfing in her spare time. Here’s what one of her clients had to say about her:

“Ms. Hirano was extremely thorough, considerate, patient, diligent and efficient. From showing of the property to explaining the escrow process and introducing us to an accountant, we were pleasantly surprised that an agent does so much for a client. We live in Canada and did not even see the actual property we purchased, but we could trust her and rely on her completely. Even after closing, she still helps us whenever we need assistance. She gave us a sense of ease in one of the largest purchases we made in our life. I will use her again if we decide to buy another property in Hawaii and recommend her with great confidence to anyone who is looking for a realtor.”

When Heather Selvitelle isn’t chasing after her toddler, she loves to run, surf, travel and does Cross Fit.  Here’s one of her client testimonials:

“This escrow took over 5 months to close due to a tenant lease and buyer loan problems. Heather was diligent throughout the entire process and never let a deadline slip. She knew when to push other team members for compliance and keeping them on track. Heather has accomplished negotiation skills and kept a difficult deal together with her “can do” approach and attitude.”

Principal Broker at LIST Sotheby’s International Realty, Myra Brandt, said, “Mari and Heather’s achievements demonstrate the power of the Sotheby’s International Realty brand and its global reach, but more importantly, the commitment of our agents who are focused on successful results for their clients. Our premier brand reputation is recognized around the world and we’re proud to have an outstanding team of dedicated agents who represent it so well.”

LIST Sotheby’s International Realty recently recorded a landmark transaction with the highest sale price in Kailua, HI since January 2008. It was also the third highest sale on Oahu in the last five years (according to HICentral MLS). This Kailua beachfront estate at 59 & 63 Kailuana Place was listed at $23 million by Judith Whitfield of LIST Sotheby’s International Realty.The 5 bedroom, 6 bathroom 6,452 square foot house sits in a private, gated setting on 1.3 acres with 200 linear feet of white, sandy beach along the famed Kailua coastline.

Consistently rated one of the best beaches in America, Kailua Beach and in particular the Kailua neighborhood known as “Beachside”, is a great getaway less than 30 minutes away from Honolulu. Features of this significant home include a pool side cabana, tropical water accents such as tiki torches, fire pit, fountains, state-of-the art security and lighting, spa and outdoor granite tub, walk-in wine cellar and expansive grounds to host large scale events.

This is the second time Judy has brokered this extraordinary property. She represented the buyer before and credits it to being “in the right place at the right time.” Judy recalls, “I answered an incoming call with clients who only wanted to work with a Sotheby’s International Realty agent. Over the last few years, I built a relationship with my clients who eventually became good friends.”

“The fact that this property sold within a year and a half is amazing considering that there is currently a 37 month supply of inventory for Oahu luxury homes priced above $5 million. What’s interesting is that some people from Texas rented the house through the LIST Sotheby’s International Realty property management department and fell in love with it. The rest is history.

Another interesting fact is that President Obama and his wife, Michelle, have visited this property in the past. It happens to be a few houses down from where President Barack Obama and his family typically rent their winter vacation home in the exclusive beach side community of Kailuana Place.
