    • Gretchen,Thank you for your incredible wisdom, guidance and impeccable business approach in finding our Kona dream home. Kona is a unique real estate market that we had been frustrated by prior to meeting you. Thanks to you, we were able to feel confident making an offer and moving swiftly to close escrow. Leslie Woods, Premier Mortgage was great to work with.Your ability to assess a homes condition, necessary work and approximate costs was invaluable. Your network of home repair professionals was so helpful.You are the best.Sincerest Mahalo,

    • Aloha17 was my plan. In preparing for the plan was the usual browsing of available real estate via the Internet and its variety of resources. Realizing that was a bit overwhelming, I decided to wait until getting to the Big Island and would just pick a realtor. Gretchen Osgood, of Hawaiian Isle Real Estate, was highly recommended by my new Hawaiian banker. He communicated that she was knowledgeable and someone whom he would like to have on his side of the table in a negotiation situation. After I left the bank, I contacted Gretchen through email and also left a voicemail message. As it was late in the day, I figured I would hear from her in the next day or so. She responded within the hour. My housing size and price points were discussed, and I was on my way to look at real estate within two days. Whenever I changed my mind, Gretchen took it in stride and changed direction to suit my specifications. In a relatively short time span, I acquired a mortgage loan, made an offer and the deal was made. Gretchen was a very integral part of the process. She perused every document, caught several discrepancies, corrected things, and answered my questions in a professional yet friendly manner. She checked and double checked everything in the deal. She did not assume it was being done, she made sure it was done. She still checks in periodically to see how things are going and continues to give recommendations and direction. Gretchen Osgood is a top notch realtor and clients on the Big Island are very fortunate she is here! Call Gretchen today!

    • As an insurance agent in Hawaii for over 40 years I have had the opportunity to work with hundreds of real estate professionals. When I decided to retire and sell my home in Kona, Gretchen Osgood is the only real estate professional I wanted for the job. Gretchens integrity, ethics, knowledge and passion for doing the most amazing job for her clients is why I chose her.Gretchen worked with me to get the house ready for sale and walked me through all the little things we would do to make sure my house presented itself in the best possible light. The photography for the flyers was fantastic, her writer interviewed me to capture the most important attributes of my home.My home sold the first day it was listed, for full price and I couldnt be happier for the process and outcome. Gretchen has the experience and ability to take the worry and stress out of selling my family home. Thank you Gretchen for helping me move on to the next chapter of my life. You are the best!

    • Thanks for all of your help. Efficiency and attention to detail are so often absent, it is a joy to work with you, my dear.

      - Edy Campbell
    • We met Gretchen Osgood 5 years ago when she represented the Seller of the home we purchased in Kona Vistas, Big Island in 2012 and are now residing in full time. Our realtor representing us as the Buyer was very competent, but when we saw and experienced how Gretchen Osgood worked with and represented her client we decided at that time if we had any future real estate transactions, we would want to work with Gretchen.After 12 years of ownership of an Alii Lani condo on the Big Island of Hawaii, we decided to sell our property as we were no longer interested in maintaining a rental property. Late last year we met with Gretchen to discuss the sale of our condo and we were not disappointed with the outcome. Her advice and suggestions were spot on. She has been in this business on the Big Island for many years and is very well connected and knows how to get things done. She keeps you on track and is well informed and assisted every step along the way with appliance replacement, condo repairs and service people who were very responsive and dependable. Her thorough attention to detail left no surprises at closing and she was always in contact and available to us when needed.I wouldnt hesitate to recommend Gretchen Osgood and look forward to working with her again in future transactions.

    • Youve made this whole process very easy and smooth. Cant wait to buy another property with you! We will definitely be recommending you to friends and family! Mahalo!

    • With Gretchens assistance, we recently purchased a wonderful, upscale condominium in Keauhou. Assistance, however, doesnt begin to describe the time, the hard work, the extensive knowledge, and the experience that she employed in representing us as our agent. She is, quite simply, and by far, the best real estate agent that weve ever worked with.Over many hours of working with us and for us, Gretchen displayed a perfect combination of aggressiveness, patience, competence, knowledge, and perseverance. On our first visit with her, she showed us what turned out to be the perfect array of Kona area condos that fell within our parameters, which enabled us to quickly narrow down the properties on which we wanted to focus our interest. We were immediately impressed with her deep knowledge of the Kona real estate market. From there it was pretty easy to identify the condo that we wanted to acquire.We are both very detail-oriented people who felt a need to be heavily and intimately involved in the details of the escrow process leading to our purchase. We thus pestered Gretchen relentlessly with questions about the provisions of the standard form sales agreement, requirements specific to Hawaii home ownership, our obligations during the process, and those of the sellers. Through it all, Gretchen was amazingly patient with us and answered all of our questions as promptly as possible. She was very assertive, in a positive, effective way, in managing the step-by-step process dictated by the sales agreement, both with us and the sellers, and in gathering information from the sellers where necessary. Her enthusiasm, energy, and positive, outgoing personality made the whole experience casual and stress-free.Above all, Gretchen displayed amazing perseverance throughout our escrow period. While she was proactively steering our escrow process and those of several other clients, it turned out that she also was dealing with a serious family health issue. This is a strong, very personable lady with a deep sense of commitment to serving her clients at her very best. You cant do better than Gretchen Osgood with your real estate transactional needs.

    • Having purchased and sold several properties with Gretchens assistance, we are continually impressed with her professionalism, courtesy and knowledge. Gretchen has our highest recommendation.

      - Kent and Eliza Kane
    • Gretchen removed our fears of purchasing off island, with her knowledge, integrity and walking us through every aspect of our purchase. Through e-mail, Gretchen educated us about the history of the various condo projects, from construction to rental historys. Gretchen e-mailed us pictures she herself took at our request of various condos. Gretchen saved us hours and days by showing us only the listings that met our specific needs. She went above and beyond for us; she made our 27-year dream a reality. Mahalo, Gretchen!

      - D & J: Brookings, OR
    • Gretchen was exactly what we needed! After being on the market for a year, we listed our lot with Gretchen and she put it into escrow in only 15 days. She analyzed the market, the area, and the land and told us exactly what needed to be done. She and her team are fantastic: professional and proactive. The close of escrow was seamless due to the attention to detail and preparation taken beforehand.

      - Castro: Orinda, CA
    • Gretchen and her staff along with their terrific marketing campaign really made the difference in selling our oceanfront condo. She successfully sold and closed the escrow for us in just 70 days! Every interaction with Hawaiian Isle was pleasant and professional . . . we definitely recommend them!

      - CW: Boring, OR
    • I dont know what I would have done without Gretchen. She was great, and just kept pushing that paper until she closed a short sale for me. I would highly recommend her for your real estate needs, and I would not hesitate to call on her when looking for a real estate agent. Thank you so much, Gretchen

      - Harrison
    • I never imagined homeownership but as home prices continued to drop, my dream of buying a home began to come alive. Gretchen had more patience than anyone Ive known and worked diligently to find a place that would work for us. I never would have gotten through this without her. Shes the absolute best!

      - Eaton
    • Thank you so much for guiding us through the sale of our condo. It is because of your knowledge and expertise that we were able to sell our condo in such a relatively short time even in this tight economy. I appreciated your regular newsletter updating us on the condition of the real estate market in Hawaiiespecially since I was living off island. I always felt you were looking out for my best interest and your quick response to any questions or problems that arose made me feel as though I was always a priority. I would highly recommend you to anyone needing the assistance of a real estate professional

      - D. Andrade, VT
    • Gretchen, there are no words to express our appreciation for the wonderful service you provide to your clients. Your knowledge of the market trends and help in pricing our unit was the ticket to a successful and FAST sale. Your staging presented our property to the very best advantage. When sellers follow YOUR lead, they will be happy with the results!

      - B. & H. Beljean: Kailua-Kona, Hawaii
    • We have been so blessed to have Gretchen Osgood as our Realtor. She came highly recommended from several sources, but little did we know how efficient and professional she is. The selling of our Condo in the worst of times was done in record time, at our asking price, and without any contingencies. From the time we first talked to Gretchen, through the close of escrow we were amazed at how fast and thorough she performed the important tasks that got the job done.We certainly understand why she received the distinguished award of Broker of the Year.It is also worth mentioning that she is a vivacious young women with a wonderful personality. Our family is forever grateful to Gretchen. In fact we are so pleased with the outcome that we will be happy to talk to anyone who is considering Gretchen to represent them as a buyer or seller of any Real Estate transaction.

      - Burda
    • My husband, Geoff & I , Hilo-Town folks, were affected by the downturn in the economy just like everybody else. We had purchased a Kailua-Kona property, we had decided that when the market was right we would sell a condo unit we had purchased. I had been receiving Gretchens Newsletter that she mailed Island Wide for a couple of years. I was impressed by her marketing savvy and contacted her. She graciously invited me to meet with her to talk about the state of the market. That was more than two years ago.She had printed out the area real estate statistics and during our almost two hour consultation helped us to the conclusion that spring of 2009 was not the time to sell. We stayed in touch and we met once more to go over the statistics, and again she helped us to see that spring of 2010 was not the time to sell. We appreciated that she wouldnt tell us what we wanted to hear unless she truly believed that it was so. By the late summer of 2010 a glimmer of hope, she felt there would be a chance, maybe even a good chance that we could sell.Now even with close to 300 condominiums on the market at that time, we did not hesitate to trust her opinion and abilities and decided to sell. She swung into action, the unit was readied, cleaned, necessary repairs attended to quickly and appraised fairly with her at the unit to promote all of its special features. Then we received a call and it was Gretchen asking if we could have a real estate caravan come through right then even though the unit wasnt quite all staged. She encouraged the exposure, as the next caravan in the complex would be weeks away. We said absolutely and buyers came in with an agent on caravan and she negotiated the sale. We couldnt have expected anything better than that! Thank you Gretchen!!In summary:1. She told it like it was and graciously gave informed advice even though it forestalled an immediate attempt at a sale for her early on.2. She was happy to update us on the market whenever we asked.3. When the time was right she was professional, enthusiastic & timely .4. Aggressive without being pushy.5. Informed of caravan activity, which was a deal maker for us.6. The actual sale process was a dream. Hourly or daily monitoring and up-dates as necessary. Any sales-related issues were addressed and resolved immediately.Would we do business with Gretchen again? The answer is that we will be doing business with her again. Hopefully very soon.

      - D & G Casburn, Hilo
    • From the moment we met Gretchen we knew that she would be our Realtor/Broker of choice. She handled our transaction in a totally efficient, professional and ethical manner. Moreover,she is warm, nonjudgmental and a lot of fun.

      - I & K Wilde
    • Aloha Kona Property Owners:We would like to share with you our recent experience in selling our Kona home.We interviewed several local brokers and selected Gretchen Lambeth.She was the only one who exhibited that combination of personality and professionalism that we wanted. Gretchens knowledge of the local market is comprehensive and in combination with her technological skills she is able to present market data in formats that are thorough and easy to understand.She has developed effective working relationships with all of the local professionals who support the real estate business. And she was very willing to tell us who she thought was the best plumber, electrician, appraiser, attorney, surveyor, etc. and she will arrange for them to contact you.She also provided free staging of our home. It took her over 8 hours of packing and toting materials into our home but, when she was finished our home was truly market ready.We just could not have been more pleased with all aspects of her performance from listing presentation to closing!

      - Karon & John Wesolowski
    • When it comes to knowing the Real Estate Market in the Hawaiian Islands, Gretchen is the person you want to be working with! My wife and I had been talking for a while about what sort of property would suit us. Gretchen was able to guide us though this journey we were on to find the perfect home for our family. She is very patient and encouraging and always available for our questions! She is very confident and truly loves what she does!Thank you for making our dream come true!

      - Alister & Jade
    • Buying a condo in Hawaii had been a goal of ours for the last year, but navigating the options was overwhelming. HOA fees, leased land, short sales and more made it seem like a very big risk to know which one to buy. Having Gretchen guide us and hone our options down to the ones that worked, it made the final choice obvious and certain. She is like having a district attourney on your side. Very professional, very knowlegable and she keeps you informed and prepared each step of the way. Two of our friends are now using her services and they also noticed how hard she works and how well she knows the market here.

      - Darrel and Renate Whitcomb
    • You not only sold our condo in no time at all but saved us from having any due diligence re-negotiations by using the prelisting home inspection so the buyers knew everything about the condo. The process was as painless as could be. Youre the WOMAN!

      - J & E Knister
    • My husband and I became fans of Gretchen before we ever thought of selling our home. We followed her newsletters and kept current with the market for several years. Her savvy business sense and exceptional knowledge of the Island and housing market is truly impressive. When I found myself needing to sell our wonderful home after the death of my husband, Gretchen was my go-to agent. She streamlined the whole process and secured a winning closing price in spite of the fallen market. Gretchen is your woman, no matter if youre selling OR buying!

      - Kennette
    • Selling a condo in this market was difficult but Gretchen made it the best it could be. Her knowledge of the market, her staging, and her willingness to get it ready in my absence (while I was thousands of miles away) was great. Her use of electronic technology enabled me to quickly sign and transmit documents from Connecticut (even over the Thanksgiving holiday). With her fabulous photos, my unit was only listed 48 hours before I had an all cash offer. If you are planning to list your property, do what she says its worth it!

      - Heather Beljean
    • It was a pleasure to work with Gretchen and her team on the recent sale of our home. Gretchen is confident in her marketing plans and definitely knows how to get results. Within five days of the MLS listing we had multiple offers and a signed contract. Follow Gretchens expert advice and accept her guidance, you wont be sorry.

      - Karin & Scott: Cannon Beach, OR
    • Although Im glad you got our home sold, I sure miss the interaction with you. I have been trying to write the perfect mahalo but it kept going too long because you do so many things so well. We now compare all listing photos, property descriptions, open house presentations, and even television shows to you. Well say, this house would have sold if Gretchen had the listing. Or, Gretchen would have called us back by now. Or simply, how would Gretchen do this? What Im saying is, to us, knowing most of the Kona realtors extremely well, and now in a new market on the mainland, Gretchen Lambeth is the GOLD STANDARD!Thanks so much

      - Laurel and Kirk
    • As an out-of-state buyer, I was not sure what to expect when trying to purchase a Kona property. Wow, Gretchen did a fantastic job and went above and beyond all expectations. The closing process was handled electronically and was flawless. Gretchen promptly answered any and all questions and the transaction went smoothly. Highly Recommend!

      - Steve & Maggie
    • You and your staff did such an excellent job in handling the purchase of our new condo! We look forward to continuing to work with your organization. Mahalo!

      - Rick and Peggy Benson
    • Mahalo to you, Gretchen. We are in the house of our dreams! (Well beyond my wildest dreams at least!). Thanks for pointing us in the right direction. I really appreciated your style- introducing us to a big variety of properties, pointing out the pros and cons of each property and letting us make the final decision without any preferences indicated on your part. Mahalo, too, for the quick, easy and trouble-free sale of our condo. We recommend you highly!

    • Connections, Knowledge, Technology, and Personality were the four main attributes that made Gretchen the best choice for West Hawaii realtor. She had many great contacts for pre-sale preparation and house-staging and other steps in the process, and her vast experience over many years meant that she always could recommend the best choices within the community. She had the most complete knowledge of the local market and historical trends of sales and purchases of anyone Ive ever selected, and she has extensive experience dealing with the potential pitfalls of a complex transaction. Her up-to-date technology use meant that processing could be completed quickly without being physically present, and she was always professional and on top of things, anticipating and reacting to each step along the way with efficiency and promptness. She was also a great local friend who was always cheerful and optimistic about our transaction(s); the latest one with her had multiple offers/buyers and closed in record time.

      - Tim Dirks
    • My husband and I were looking for a home to buy here on the Island. I have always heard that Gretchen was the Realtor to go through. Gretchen was excellent, she managed to help us find our dream home. Gretchen is so dedicated to her clients and the follow up was fantastic, if there is something you need she is willing to go that extra mile to help you get what is needed for the lender etc., I would highly recommend Gretchen if you are interested in buying a home. Mahalo!

      - Heather & Alex Austin
    • We have known Gretchen Lambeth for many years and have long admired her wisdom, integrity and professionalism. So when the time came for us to sell our Kona home, she was the obvious choice to be our Realtor.Our home sale proved to be much more complicated than we expected, including legal issues, home repairs and problems with buyer financing, lost paperwork and escrow delays. She handled each issue quickly and directly, advising us on just what to do. We particularly appreciated the way she communicated with us continually so we always felt like she understood our concerns and was giving us all the information we needed.Gretchen has been honored by her peers as West Hawaii Realtor of the Year, and theres a good reason for that. They recognize that shes the best not just in the volume of sales, but in the way she treats her clients, employees, contractors and others she works with. We highly recommend her to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home in West Hawaii. Her knowledge of the market is second to none. Whether you need to buy or sell a starter home or a magnificent mansion she will make it happen for you.

      - Scott and Sandi Tompkins
    • Mary and I would like to thank you for the excellent work you did selling our Kona Sea Ridge condominium. Your responsibilities were extensive and included not only selling but it also included remodeling and staging the condo. We were able to stay in California while you did all the leg work and coordinated the multiple contractors. You picked out the appliances, the carpeting, the ceiling fans and everything else we had to redo and then called the installers to set up installation. You were probably there to open the front door for them.We also appreciated your keeping us up-to-date on the status of the sale and also trying to address any concerns we may have had. When issues did come up, you took full responsibility for quickly resolving them.In the end you were able to get the sale quickly. The final selling price was more than we had hoped for. This was probably the most stress free real estate transaction that we have ever had.Thank you Gretchen for your hard work and professionalism. It was a pleasure working with you.

    • We just relocated to Kailua Kona, in January 2013, from New Zealand. Wewere fortunate to have Gretchen Lambeth recommended to us for the allimportant search for our new home.

She has STUDIED MARKETTRENDS over many years and KNOWS THE OPTIONS.!Also, she was very helpful in DEFINING WHAT WE NEEDED, and HELPED US FOCUS.She is a VERY HARD WORKER, and VERY SKILLED with documentation, offers, etc.Finally, she is both TENACIOUS, always looking for suitable homes, but atthe same time PLEASANT TO WORK WITH!We highly recommend Gretchen at HAWAIIAN ISLE REAL ESTATE.

    • We made a couple of trips out to Kona to help prepare the house for sale, and what we found is that you were a fount of knowledgeabout the local housing market, about prices, about ocean views, about trends, about who might be attracted to a rather unusual house with its Shoji doors, and about what needed to be done to give the house its best advantage and curb appeal. We listened to you and are glad we did.So, when the house went on the market, you pulled out all the stopsyou hired a professional copywriter to captivate potential buyers with verbal imagery that was enticing and intriguing, and you hired a professional photographer to take images of the house that were inviting and alluring, and you developed a strategic marketing plan including a roll out and special attention via a weekly caravan of realtors who are checking new properties for potential clients.We received several offers, and you helped guide us through deciding what was important and what was drivel Indeed, there were frustrating moments as buyers would make a proposal and then do gyrations that would turn their initial offers on their heads. But you helped keep the eye on the ball and we were reassured that there was a buyer or buyers out there who would see our house and recognize its rather unique attributes. And, that is what has happened.So, today we do the final recording of the deed transferring ownership of our Kona house to its new owners. You have been always available, always steadfast, and always reliable, and always right on the money.

      - Ronald Martinson
    • A simple Thank You doesnt quite convey our appreciation for the wonderful job you and your staff did in handling the purchase of our condo. We feel so fortunate to have been referred to you. I recall the first time we met in your office. As we walked out, I looked at Ron and said, Wow, shes great! He quickly agreed.From start to finish, your professionalism, expertise, and personalized support was unsurpassed. In todays environment its refreshing to conduct business with someone so committed to customer service. Every time Ron or I had a question or concern, you replied promptly with the answers we needed many times after hours or during the weekend. We appreciate how tech-savvy you are and loved being able to review and sign many of the documents electronically.Gretchen, we will enthusiastically recommend you to friends or colleagues needing a realtor. You just have a way of making customers feel like theyre your most important clients. Thank you once again for handling our transaction perfectly! We hope to enjoy our condo for years to come.

      - Ron and Janet Ford
    • We want to thank you so much for handling the sale of our condo. Everything went unbelievably smooth thanks to your expertise.Mahalo, Mahalo, Mahalo,

      - Colleen & Gary Caylor
    • Gretchen really listened closely to the sort of property I described that I was interested in buying. She then went out of her way to tailor my search to what I wanted and could afford. Gretchen was always prepared when we met, used our time wisely, and was a pleasure to deal with at all times. (I believe that pleasant, respectful attitude is called the Aloha spirit). Gretchen never abandoned me when I got into the wilds of securing financing. When it came time to remodel, Gretchen opened up her book of qualified people to me. Gretchen was always so gracious throughout the entire process even when the process bordered on becoming an ordeal. I actually enjoyed my experience of purchasing property on the Big Island because of Gretchens skills, and I am pleased I know Gretchen for the long-haul. I recommend Gretchen without reservation to anyone interested in real estate on the Big Island of Hawaii.

      - Cheryl Flanagan
    • Gretchen is dedicated to finding the perfect property for each of her clients. She listened to me describe exactly what I wanted and then hung in with me for more than a year, searching diligently. Mahalo Gretchen! I couldnt be happier with my purchase.

      - S. Sakai
    • We wanted to thank you for all the support you gave us during the short sale transaction of our condo at Kona Bali Kai.It was a much more difficult procedure than we realized. Your professionalism and commitment went above and beyond our expectations.When we received our foreclosure letters from the bank we panicked not knowing what was next. You kept us calm and always reassured us that the transaction was moving in the right direction.You came highly recommended for short sale for a reason. we trusted you 100% of the way!Thanks Gretchen for a job well done!

      - J & J
    • We would highly recommend Gretchen to anyone who is looking at buying or selling property on the Big Island. Having only vacationed on the Big Island once we were grateful to have had Gretchen as our agent. Her knowledge of the market and area was very impressive. She responded quickly to all of our e-mails and phone calls and having spent only 3 weeks on the Island there were a lot of them. Gretchen helped us find a place to rent before we arrived here and had all of the information we needed to start our journey to become permanent residents. After spending a short time with her she knew exactly what we were looking for in a home and found us the perfect one. The whole process of moving from Alaska to Hawaii, which seemed overwhelming at times, was made easy by her expertise, professionalism and enthusiasm as an agent.

      - Cliff and Lana
    • Aloha Gretchen! It was a pleasure getting to meet & work with you. I am very impressed with your professionalism in every aspect of our transaction.

It was great having you as quarterback on our winning team. Anyone interested in a Kona real estate transaction definitely needs to consult with you. I HIGHLY recommend your services!

    • My wife and I are so thrilled with our recent house sale. We got a full price offer on the first day and closed the following month! This happened because Gretchen guided us through the process of what it takes to prepare for the sale. So much of the upfront work like, cleaning, painting where needed, making sure everything presents well helped us to secure and make the sale. All the hard work paid off! I highly recommend Gretchen and Hawaiian Isle Reality.

      - Alister Randell
    • Thanks for all your help! You really made the buying process easy for us. We know that at times we were probably being unrealistic, however you continued to be patient with us and walk us through all the options. It was a pleasure working with you and we will refer family and friends to you.

      - Korey and Laura
    • We wanted to thank Gretchen for selling our home so quickly. We needed someone who understood our situation, she took care of everything for us, and we are so grateful for everything she did!

    • Aloha members of the Gretchen Osgood Club: I hope everyone has at least an experience as rewarding as mine has been.Gretchen does not let any grass grow under her feet once she gets going. We decided on my needs and desires and went from there. In about six weeks we closed on my new home in Kona.Thank you Gretchen and all involved for your caring and expertise when I most needed it.

      - Norma J.
    • Thank you for your follow-up and for handling our home sale as professionally as you did. All the best to you in your future endeavors.

      - Dennis Cintas
    • Well, there is not a whole lot to say about our home selling experience with Gretchen other than to use the word Great. When we signed on with Gretchen we expected an experience that would be held to a higher standard and that is exactly what we received. All went very smooth and trouble free from signing of the contract to the closing of escrow; We were very please with our experience with Gretchen, would use her again in the future should the need arise and would recommend her to anyone else looking for a very favorable, trouble free real estate transaction.
