Jeff Char

    • This was a very exciting yet scary event in my life and was doing it all alone. I had no one to hold my hand. Luckily Jeff was there to comfort me and help me make good decisions and point out things i may have over looked! He was an excellent support and helped me every step and answered all my questions no matter what time of day, night or even early morning! He made this process much easier and comfortable for me. Im a worrier and a stressor and he helped keep me calm! He had his hands full with me and i think he did an excellent job!

    • My wife and I were first time home buyers and didn't know where to start. We were nervous and clueless when we walked into the office of Better Homes and Garden Real Estate Advantage Reality and was met with Jeff Char. Jeff was very personable which made us immediately feel comfortable and less nervous. He introduced himself with a smile on his face and showed us around the office before even sitting us down to talk about the process of looking for a home. He was very thorough in his explanations and knowledgeable about the steps of buying a home.My wife and I were so impressed that we asked him to be our realtor and to help us find the perfect place. Jeff made sure that we got all the latest listings specific to our needs and wants and even drove us to see the places that sparked our interest. He would walk us through the pros and cons of each property we seen and would always make sure we were well informed.When we finally found a place we really wanted, Jeff started the process of placing an offer and printed out how the timeline would go from that point on. Jeff kept in touch with us the whole way through and was available to answer all of our questions even when it came up late in the night and after his work hours. He would always give us courtesy calls to see how we were doing and to ask if we needed help with anything, which we appreciated.He would show up to our home inspections to make sure everything went well and even helped us ask questions to benefit our decision, we truly believe he had our best interest at heart.As first time buyers we couldn't have asked for a better realtor and we're glad we chose Jeff. The whole process was flawless and Jeff was there in the end to hand us our keys with a big bow placed on the front door. He found us our perfect forever home.

      - Ron & Angie L. - Aiea, Hawaii
    • Jeff was an asset during the entire search and purchase experience. His knowledge of the local market, the history of the properties visited, and his drive made this a relatively painless experience.He was always prepared for the viewings of properties, and when I put in my initial offer on a short sale property he was engaged with the sellers agent to enable the process. When a different property became available Jeff was able to rapidly shift to supporting the purchase of the new property. I appreciate that dedication in supporting my property purchase.I would wholeheartedly recommend Jeff to anyone who is looking to purchase a home in Honolulu. His friendly and engaging personality made the drudgery of looking at properties and going through the purchase process a lot less onerous.

      - Matt Zahn - Honolulu, Hawaii
    • I couldnt be more impressed with the professionalism of our agent Jeff Char. His hassle free approach made our home buying experience very enjoyable and exciting. He took the time to explain everything in detail, in words and terms that I, a first time home buyer could easily understand. Jeff was as honest as honest can be and I never felt that he was pressuring us just to make the sale. Once we found our perfect home, he really went out of his way to make sure that we got exactly what we wanted. His knowledge of this business really shows. I would highly recommend Jeff Char and Better Homes and Gardens Advantage Realty to anyone that is looking to buy or sell their home

      - Troy Yamada - Kaneohe, Hawaii
    • Jeff - is very thorough and attentive, ALWAYS; he is most definitely the "go to guy"

      - David Griffith - Kaneohe, Hawaii
    • Jeff Char is the best in the business. He found me a perfect rental on my first day on Oahu and then a year later we bought a house on the first try on the first day we looked at them with him. He closed it under asking and in 22 days!Then 3 years later when it was time to sell that property , Jeff was the only realtor I wanted to use. He sold the property for above asking within 5 hours of listing it!

      - Dan Arthur - Hawaii
    • My wife and I met Jeff Char while we were randomly looking at open houses around the Hawaii Kai / Kalama Valley area. We really appreciated his friendliness and "no pressure" salesmanship.What made us stick with Jeff Char as our broker was our experience with him during our initial set of open house tours. He was very patient, organized, and knowledgeable of each listing and their general location.We will definitely consider having Jeff Char as our broker if we decide to purchase another home in the future, and highly recommend him to anyone presently purchasing a home.

      - Briankeith and Linda - Hawaii Kai
    • Jeff Char was very professional and approachable. I am a first time homebuyer. As a medical professional with variable and limited hours, Jeff accommodated me and took the time to explain things. He worked very hard on my behalf. He strives for excellence and I am convinced that he believes that his clients deserve nothing less. Lastly, I appreciated his timely and clear communication.Kim Hanawahine (senior transaction manager) was also timely and clear with communication from opening to closing escrow.Awesome experience! I still can't believe that I am a homeowner! I would definitely recommend Jeff Char and Better Homes and Gardens without reservations.

      - Mark - Honolulu, Hawaii
    • Jeff went beyond expectations.Helped with everything including getting his hands dirty to get the job done. He was critical in helping to sell the Condo. Fantastic team player. Will recommend him to everyone.Thank You Jeff for making the experience GREAT. He really made us feel at ease in selling of the Condo. You cannot find a better person to help you with everything.Mahalo Jeff

      - Charles Rothenberger - Honolulu, Hawaii
    • We moved to Hawai'i from Los Angeles in 2016 and understood right away that the Hawai'i housing market is competitive and unique. Knowing this, we could not have asked for a better representative for our first home purchase. From the beginning, we were given a thorough run down of what to expect in the home buying process. Jeff quickly grasped what our ideal home was and always highlighted listings he knew we would be interested in, even though we received timely emails with the listings. He made sure we wouldn't miss any opportunity to find our home. He is knowledgeable and patient in explaining every aspect of the purchase contract and closing.We also appreciated Jeff's personable nature and words of encouragement through the two years of searching. Jeff assembled a Grade-A team to assist with the process. He connected us with our loan officer Lee-Ann Galapia, who made a typically stressful and invasive process extremely smooth for us. We also loved working with Kim Hanawahine, who tracked every step of escrow.Jeff excels in being patient, knowledgeable, approachable and respectful. Bonus: He's also great with little kids! My 4-year-old felt comfortable with "Uncle Jeff" because Jeff took the time to engage with him during our meetings.I will be recommending Jeff Char and the Better Homes and Gardens team to anyone seeking a realtor. Without hesitation.

    • Jeff Char was excellent! My wife and I last bought a house in the early 90s and the whole process has undergone quite a change. Jeff patiently answered our many questions, gave us his recommendations and backed our decisions. The entire Better Homes team was very prompt in returning calls and emails. Very smooth process.Once we chose our property, Jeff advised us on the bid and arranged all the required inspections, contracts and closing negotiations. We just had to give our consent and show up. Extremely professional and well organized.Our house requirements evolved during our search process and Jeff shifted gears to ensure our needs were met. He patiently answered the thousands of questions we had throughout the process and used his extensive knowledge of the area real estate to meet our requests. Our satisfaction was his biggest concern. Always smiling and receptive his expertise and communication skills made this major life event very low stress. I couldnt be more pleased with Jeff and his team.Glad its over, but overall the process was as trouble-free as something this complex could be.

      - Scott and Susan McIntire - Pearl City, Hawaii
    • We could not have asked for anything more from a realtor. You really helped to walk us through the process while making it enjoyable at the same time! You were patient with you many questions and concerns. You gave good, sound, and experienced advice when we needed it. Most of all, you made us feel confident in the decisions we were making along the way.

      - Mike & Jaymi - Honolulu, Hawaii
    • Jeff Char was so helpful from the very beginning. I knew very little about the home buying process, and Jeff took the time to explain the entire process that was easy for me to understand. He sat with me for several hours to break it all down. I know that he didn't have to do that, and it really made a positive impression on me. This was my first home buying experience and he definitely gave me the confidence and tools necessary for the process. Jeff was clear in communication throughout the entire home buying experience, and was always patient with my questions and concerns.The part that stands out for me the most was the closing process. COVID 19 really shook things up. My closing date was constantly changing due to the home being a new construction. I also had a work trip that kept getting postponed. Of course, the closing and the work trip happened at the same time. This is where Jeff really saved me! I had returned from my work trip but was on quarantine. Jeff still made sure my closing happened on time by conducting the final walk through with the developer, and was able to get keys for me, all while streaming it virtually while I was quarantined. He left the keys in a lockbox for me to pick up. I was so grateful for this! I can't thank Jeff enough for all the work he did for me! Thank you Jeff Char!!!
