      Tom helped me to find and buy a condo. He took the time to understand what is important for me and made sure I understood the whole buying process.

    • It must be said that Tom is the epitome of professionalism and dedication. Providing us with great customer service and practically 100% access to information and up to date details on properties and our process is just the beginning of a long list of details and courtesies that Tom extended to us. He took care of and made sure that our buying experience did not become a nightmare. When necessary Tom became a sounding board and walked us off the proverbial ledge as we negotiated this very complex process. in the end we feel like we got the best deal the best service and the best realtor and realty company.

    • Tom was the perfect realtor! We encountered unforeseen problems that caused challenges and delays but Tom provided peace of mind and Walked us through the process to overcome them. As a result of Tom's support and guidance we were able to recover all addition costs and more. Cost conscious people may look for discount realtors but they receive nowhere near the value we received by working with Tom. If we ever need a realtor again there's no doubt we'll call Tom Presler.

    • Everything about our experience with Locations LLC and Tom Presler was very positive! Tom was always very patient and detailed. He really made the house buying experience a good one for us.

      - Christopher and Meghan Nielson
    • My agent Tom Presler was very patient and objective regarding our real estate questions. He took the time to educate us about the home buying process as well as the specific features of each individual home we viewed. Tom's recommendations were sincere and he did not pressure us into purchasing a home we didn't feel completely comfortable with. Even when we brought other family members to open houses they always acknowledge Tom's welcoming approach and passion for finding us the perfect home. Thanks to his hard work and dedication my wife and I are the proud first time owners of our dream home. Through our time together we got to know Tom personally and feel like he part of our family.We recommended Tom to family members and friends who are in the contemplating of the buying process.

      - Michelet and Jenevieve Joy Louis
    • The service I received from my agent is great. The Locations is also fine. However I don't usually recommend services to friends & family members.

      - Christopher Tam and Sandy Tam Li
    • Tom Presler is an excellent realtor. It is apparent that customer service is a top priority for him. Very professional and friendly he was always responsive to all our questions and contacted the listing agents of our properties of interest in a timely manner. He is obviously very experienced in this field as he would usually have notable insights regarding various aspects of properties contracts and negotiation procedures. Tom also took the time to understand our needs and wants in a location and never tried to pressure us to look in areas outside our specified geography boundaries or to consider properties that did not meet our criteria. One very interesting observation we had was that whenever we told other agents that Tom was our realtor every one of them spoke highly of Tom and commended us for finding such a good agent. It really speaks volumes when a person has that much respect from others in his profession. We will definitely recommend Tom to all our friends the next time they are looking for a realtor- and plan to contact him in the future for any of our personal real estate transactions too!

      - Donielle and Eli Comeau
    • We had a great experience selling our condo. Showing and sale went very quick and very fast!

      - Jerry and Vanny Clay
    • Tom was the best part of our home buying experience. He went above and beyond on several occasions and we knew he truly cared that we were happy with our home and the process. I will recommend Tom to anyone looking for a home. Thanks so much Tom!

      - Jordan Wrenn
    • Tom was fantastic to work with! He meticulously guided us through our first home-buying experience and made sure all of our questions were answered at every step. We greatly appreciated the fact that he was primarily focused on making sure we found the right home that suited our needs and budget and he didn't try to push us in any particular direction. During property showings we were very grateful for his keen eye that helped us spot potential problems with prospective homes. When it came time to bid on our future home he gave us the information and advice we needed to make a winning offer at a great price. Throughout the home-buying process he also shared his wealth of local knowledge with us that helped make our transition from the mainland to Hawaii much smoother. We would heartily recommend Tom as a superb real estate agent and we will certainly seek his services for our future real estate needs.

      - Danielle and Andriy Villhauer
    • The tracking system on key events and activities is very useful. Locations LLC reviews all documents to ensure agreements are constructed appropriately and catching any variations that may create issues in offers and closing. This is a good system and increases confidence in the process of buying or selling a property. Having done real estate sales on the mainland in recent years the service aspect of both the agent and company were significantly more user friendly. In Tom's case his administrative assistant is very much on top of the documents and reminders.

      - Kristeen Hanselman
    • Tom made everything easier for us and made sure we understood every step of the home buying process. He is a true asset to Locations LLC!

      - Dunhill and Kelly Patlingrao

      - Rebecca Reaney
    • Tom Presler picked up the agent role for my real estate sales transaction due to the prior Locations agent having conflicted listings in the Ilikai. I had told the prior agent that I wanted the replacement agent to be knowledgable and responsive. Tom exceeded my expectatyions on all fronts; being highly professional responsive knowledgeable and in his ability to execute. I was extremely happy with him representing my property and also in the end result. Tom is a talented real estate agent that I would recommend.

      - Thomas Shughrue
    • Tom Presler was timely diligent and stayed on top of the transaction at all times. He assisted in the "regular" process with efficiency but he also personally handled other unexpected details and obstacles to help ensure the sale successfully closed as soon as possible.

      - Dawn Kubota
    • Tom was very professional always kept me informed about each step in the transaction and always told me to call him anytime about questions or concerns. When I left a personal item behind he even went back to the buyer to retrieve it. He is a great agent!

    • Mr. Presler exceeded my expectations in every area when it came to buying my second home here in Hawaii. He is thorough caring and knowledgeable about all things related to buying and even maintaining a home on the island. I have repeatedly recommended him to colleagues and friends already.

      - Shana Masullo
    • Tom was easy to work with and very detailed oriented during the contract process. He has a great team. Would use him again.Even after the deal was done he still called me to see if there were any problems or anything he can do to help. I use to be an agent and if I had to compare he is way better than I was. That's why he is in it still and I'am not in it.

      - Robert Conolly
    • Tom is a consummate professional! He really took the time to understand our wants and needs. He kept us informed through every step of the process and was always willing to answer questions.

      - Andrew Bayers
    • I really can't say enough about the incredible experience I had in listing and selling my home with Tom Presler. I'm very particular and it's difficult for me to find trustworthy professionals that meet my standards. Tom exceeded my expectations in every case. His excellent communication and deep knowledge of his industry and the real estate market on Oahu strong relationships with service providers attention to detail and quality super-hard work ethic and empathy were more than I could have imagined. He is the consummate professional and I'm truly grateful that I met him and entrusted him with my transaction I could not have asked for more. Besides that he is a super-nice guy and wonderful person. Thank you so much to Tom for everything.

      - Susan Constantinides
    • Being a first time home buyer Tom really took the time to explain things to me and made sure that I understood what was happening. Also he was very responsive to my emails phone calls and texts and was able to answer my questions. I also valued his opinion about places I looked at due to his experience in real estate. Overall it was a pleasure working with Tom and I will be happy to refer my friends to him in the future.

      - Daryce Matsuda
    • Tom was very helpful and always willing to help us. He definitely worked hard for us and it is truly appreciated.

      - Mike Okai
    • Tom was informative and especially when we needed it gave some great advice (as we were in the throes of formulating details of the offer). We truly appreciated his 5am text!We also really appreciated his calm even personality and patience which I think helped us better resist the panic that can sometimes pop up in very brisk markets. At times Tom may have assumed that we knew more about the process of real estate shopping and buying in that market than we did so in the spirit of providing potentially helpful feedback I'd suggest checking in with the client periodically if that may be the case with others. On the whole our dealings with the company were good and efficient. There were occasional glitches (that may have stemmed from computer or firewall issues at our end; just really don't know) but typically Tom would step in and make sure we got the document or clarified things for us. We very much appreciated being able to use the Kailua office for my dad (one of the buyers) who does not have email access.

    • I must say Tom Pressler is the pinnacle of professional excellence and should be the "poster boy" of a strong contributor to good business conduct and building ethical trust for Prudential Locations LLC! While Tom displays his pride in work it went hand-in-hand with placing high priority on Prudential's quality reputation. While there are many agents in the market selling themselves Tom gave proper recognition to the company first; proving genuine respect for the company in which he works. This alone gained our trust proving he is a person of integrity; committed to excellence and showing professional concern for quality work. I give Tom Pressler the highest recommendation as a real estate agent and commend him on excellent service! His knowledge is multi-faceted and not only do I believe he is able to do more but I KNOW he will do more than the average agent! While Tom is very client-focused we never felt that we were just a client. We felt 100% that his actions were all about us and understanding our needs. And he proved so from the very beginning to the very end with his sharing of knowledge and expertise of the industry market island anomalies sound advice care concern support and sacrifice! Tom always displayed a strong personal commitment and as busy as he is- we truly felt we were treated as the most important client he ever had. He definitely gives the job his all and follows up on everything! He always offered practical insight with intelligent reasoning to all of our questions and concerns; proving his extraordinary level of expertise. He always took prompt action without undue haste or delay in approaching matters that were of concern. Tom goes beyond what is expected even when there are no expectations. Tom Pressler is a highly focused true professional who displays a stable patient steady relaxed confident polished poised pleasant demeanor coupled with a high degree of integrity in perfect balance with his hard work challenge and drive!!! Prudential Locations LLC you have a true advocate and asset with Tom Pressler!!! We are so thankful he was referred to us and we will refer him to everyone!!! Sincerely Darren and Mokihana Quirouet
