My husband and I have ad several Wailea transactions with Brad over the years.
Some have required me to trust his instincts over mine, which is not always easy:
To put your faith in someone, but he did not disappoint! They are pros with experience.
Brad was a great real estate partner and helped me navigate a fast and very smooth sale. he was friendly, responsive and respectful. I particularly appreciated his help after the sale ensuring I was prepared to understand all the details of the house for a smooth moving in.
In the last 2 years Brad has sold 2 condos for us, and is now acting for us on the purchase of a home. Before I decided to work with Brad, I did my homework. His reputation is stellar. His knowledge of the market is based on decades of experience, both in buyer’s markets and seller’s markets. In short, it is for good reason that Brad is involved in as many local transactions as he is. I was very pleased with the sale price achieved on the condos I sold and when purchasing I was impressed with Brad’s negotiating skills on our behalf. I would recommend Brad without hesitation.
My Mom and I recently completed a sale of our beautiful Keala o Wailea penthouse in Wailea, Maui, with the help of our fabulous real estate broker Brad MacArthur and his wonderful team, including Vivian. We have engaged Brad’s Wailea Realty Corp on many occasions beginning in the late 1980’s. Brad has a superb knowledge of Maui real estate, with a special emphasis in the Wailea area. Brad has superb negotiating skills, and he is very responsive to his client’s needs. Brad, Vivian & their team are also quite wonderful at coordinating all things related to the closing of our escrow in a timely manner. We both highly recommend Brad and his team to all!
Initially I reached out to Brad because he was selling a home that looked ideal for our needs. This home was already under contract so we stayed in touch and reviewed our priorities. Brad was patient with the process as we needed some time to finalize our plans. He did a good job understanding our priorities and showed us a good selection of homes to consider. Once we found our top choice property, Brad was helpful proposing terms that led us to be the top candidate to the the sellers. We just closed on our dream property and we are glad that we chose Brad as our Real Estate Pro!
I originally met Brad and his team when he was the agent representing a seller whose condo I purchased. Even though it was several years back, I remember how professional and quick his team was at resolving issues for me, and helping me navigate the purchase even though I was doing everything from my home in Utah. We absolutely loved the condo that we purchased, but over the past few years our family has grown and we outgrew the space. I immediately thought of Brad and asked if you would like to list it for us. he knew the market really well, he was extremely quick, he got professional photographers in to take wonderful pictures, and had it listed in record time. I have several family members here in Utah that are real estate agents, and none of them work nearly as fast as Brad :). After listing the condo with him, we had it under contract at full asking price in less than 48 hours. He executed everything perfectly and got the place ready to show while I was on the mainland unable to return to Maui due to the Covid situation. My entire sell was handled remotely and expertly done by his team. While under contract, we also received backup offers that he made me aware of just in case the first buyers fell through. Fortunately it all came together far better than we could have hoped and we are excited to work with him in purchasing our next home out on Maui. If you are considering purchasing a home or condo in Maui, I would recommend Brad and his team without reservation. He is honest, and really really good at what he does. Over the course of those two transactions and the years in between he has become a good friend as well as my go-to realtor in Hawaii.
My wife, Denise, and I worked with Brad on purchasing a beachfront property in Kihei. We had never owned property in Hawaii before and are thankful we found Brad and worked with him. His local and industry knowledge are superior. There were many things different about purchasing property here than we were accustomed to. Brad and his assistant, Vivian, ably guided us through the process and made sure we had access to other professional contractors, inspectors, and title/escrow people, to make sure we had a swift and accurate process. During most of the purchase, we were on the mainland, and Brad would meet with whoever we needed him to meet with at the house and make sure our interests were fully represented. If you’re looking for a great team to represent you, we highly recommend Brad and the Wailea Realty team. They are “Top Shelf”!
Brad made selling our house as painless as possible. He understands his market completely, Provides excellent advice on what is needed to get the house ready, and is easily approachable.
We used Brad and his team to sell a property in Wailea, Hawaii. Brad and his team did a fantastic job with the entire home sale process. Their marketing was outstanding, and their office is ideally located in a heavily trafficked area of the resort community where we got additional foot traffic that resulted in some additional showings. He guided us through the entire process and made great suggestions where appropriate. He was also very personable and easy to work with. Five Stars!
Brad has done a great job selling out home. He developed and implemented a good marketing plant to obtain multiple offers during a pandemic. Once in escrow, he was persistent in seeing that all conditions were met and we were able to close on time. Thanks Brad!
Brad provided a detailed analysis of the market and recommended pricing for the unit which maximized the eventual sales price. He and his assistant, Vivian of Wailea Realty, did a great job of preparing the unit for sale through a local staging company. They also made additional recommendations based on prospective buyers’ feedback to enhance the unit for sale. This included coordinating the installation of window coverings and pricing recommendations as the market continued to evolve. The closing of the unit was done during a very challenging time with Brad and Vivian working very closely with me, escrow and the buyer’s agent to ensure the unit closed on schedule with no surprises. I have used Wailea Realty in the past and highly recommend them as the best real estate brokerage company in the Wailea market.
We engaged Brad to sell our Maui oceanfront home because we felt he had the sophistication appropriate for selling a premium property. We were proven correct. Although it took a while, which is normal for such properties, he brought us the perfect buyer and got us a fair price. He assisted in a number of matters while we were off island, which we appreciated. He and his team made the process from offer to closing go smoothly. We would recommend Brad to anyone buying or selling a home on Maui.
Buying a home in Hawaii is no small feat when you live off island and are not familiar with all of the specifics that come with the territory such as: residential condo property (CPR), photovoltaic system and the vast climate differences that can occur within a few short miles. Any realtor in Hawaii is familiar with all of these things and more, but you really need an advocate and someone to explain these nuances to you. Brad and his team at Wailea Realty were just that for us. Even though this was our 3rd home purchase (first in HI), there were challenges that we hadn’t faced before and Brad and Vivian really worked hard to keep the purchase on track. They were patient with all of our questions and concerns and were the frontline we needed. They even took care of arranging some services on our behalf so that we didn’t have to worry about them from the mainland. Even though we have now closed, surely we will need direction from time to time and know that Brad and Vivian will always be there with answers to help us along. It feels good to know that we now have friends on Maui and look forward to seeing them very soon!
My wife and I have bought and sold several homes over the past 30 years and we have never had such a great experience as we had with Brad MacArthur and his assistant, Vivian Dames. The quality of their service, their knowledge and their rapid responsiveness is pretty amazing. They even helped us with tasks not normally part of the real estate purchase. If you are considering buying or selling a home on Maui, we strongly recommend that you get in touch with Brad. You’ll be very glad you did.
We hired Brad to sell our home in South Maui. From the beginning, he was very professional and helpful with the process. He assisted us with getting the house ready. We also are very impressed with his marketing skills and reaching out to potential buyers. He is very familiar with the Maui market. His assistant Vivian was a pleasure to work with. Always reachable and responding to our questions. Selling a home can be a very stressful time, so we are very thankful to Brad and Vivian that they made it way more pleasant.
We recently had Brad assist us in the purchase of a condominium unit in the Wailea area. He identified appropriate properties for our consideration and arranged showings in an efficient manner so that we could narrow our choices in a fairly short period of time. He was very responsive to our questions and requests for additional showings. When we identified a property, he assisted very professionally with the negotiations and contract exchanges. He is extremely knowledgeable about the Wailea area and the current property values. His assistance was exactly what we had hoped for in this transaction.
I have known Brad MacArthur for many, many years. Brad & his company Wailea Realty Corp. have helped me and my family acquire and sell various residential properties in the Wailea area over several decades. Brad is the ultimate professional. He has a vast market knowledge of Wailea & surrounding Maui areas. He is an expert in negotiating great terms for me and my family in our transactions. Brad, Vivian & his team are most helpful in not only putting great deals together, but also in closing them in a timely manner. I highly recommend others to select Brad as their agent!
Brad and his staff at Wailea Realty first helped us when we purchased our oceanfront home on Kamaole Beach in 2002. Through that transaction, Brad helped us evaluate oceanfront properties island-wide before we settled on our first beachfront home. We have now bought and sold a total of over $30 Million oceanfront properties from the South to the North Shore of Maui – all of which were successful sales for us. In all transactions, Brad’s commanding experience and keen understanding of county codes and necessary permits associated with the Shoreline Management Area facilitated smooth escrows. We consider Brad a professional and would recommend his services for clients considering buying or selling oceanfront property. His network of Brokers both locally and globally was instrumental in marketing our home.
My experience with Brad has been nothing less than professional and effective.
We decided to list our home with Wailea Realty because of their track record on oceanfront property, integrity and ability to maximize exposure of our Keawakapu home to the luxury market.
Brad handled a tricky, multiple offer transaction with experience and a steady hand and quickly brought the deal to closing in a very short time. His experience and knowledge were an asset to our transaction.
I would happily recommend Brad MacArthur as my broker of choice.
Brad has represented me on two almost simultaneous transactions. One transaction was on the purchase of my condominium in the Royal Mauian. Since there were no listings in the Royal Mauian at the time I wanted to buy, Brad assisted me in a letter writing campaign to the owners. After finding an owner whom, wanted to sell his most beautiful unit, Brad assisted in structuring and negotiating the offer and counters on my behalf. In the same time period, he handled the second transaction by listing my house on Kamakoi Loop. He did a wonderful job of marketing the property and within 24 days the property was in escrow. Brad worked with a most difficult buyer and broker. I as the seller, was also difficult but Brad worked patiently through all the difficulties and closed both transactions within a month of each other. I do recommend this most knowledgeable and patient broker.
As we compared Brad’s skills and personality to other realtors in the area, it was obvious that we wanted to work with him to sell our condo. His knowledge of the market and willingness to “think outside the box” worked to our advantage. The photos and marketing were top-notch and we immediately had sustained interest in our listing. In a somewhat stale market and listed higher than any of our comps, we quickly had strong buyers willing to pay top dollar. Brad did a great job of seeing to every little detail involving off-island sellers and buyers and the deal closed smoothly with everyone pleased.
The fact that you helped us jump right in and snap that wonderful place up right away was amazing.
We understand that we knew nothing about Hawaii Real Estate purchasing when we started the process and you guys walked us through it with great calmness and attention to detail.
Working with Brad and his team to sell my luxury home was a great decision. He definitely lives up to his reputation as one of the best on Maui with his excellent local knowledge and professionalism.
My favorite part about working with Brad was his honesty, giving me the truth about selling my home, and not just telling me what I wanted to hear. I am looking forward to working with Brad and his team again on my next project, whether I’m selling or buying.
From the moment my husband and I saw how well Brad and his company presented our property in its very best light, and kept us informed, we knew we had the best representation.
Working with Brad was wonderful! He made the experience a smooth and personal one and took care of us with sincere kindness and expertise. Mahalo Brad!
Brad kept me grounded and focused on what mattered. He is very professional and principled.
I benefited greatly by letting him guide me.
