Testimonies and Reviews

Karen always has a sunny personality and a comforting way. In addition to a great attitude she is very capable and knowledgeable. She was our agent when we bought land in Kona 9 years ago and when we reached out to her recently after not having contact with her for that many years she remembered us immediately and has helped us out again. We never have to question she was always one step ahead in the process. Great Agent!
Karen has been my go-to realtor for 25 years. She has advised and represented me on 7 separate real estate transactions, involving both purchases and sales. Her familiarity with networking with all the other agents, escrow companies, and finance organizations within the Big Island real estate industry has been a nice plus. I highly recommend her for her large knowledge base and expertise with regards to Big Island properties.
 
My wife was very ill and had approximately 3 years to live. I bought a Condo for her before she died in April of 2014. While staying in Hawaii in 2012 she was trying to contact an agent to show us a Condos for sale. After no response, a friend who lives on the Big Island recommended we call Karen Bail. She called us within an hour and to make this story short we made a deal within two months including financing. It couldn't have gone any better.
 
Let's retire in Hawaii! We booked a trip to Kona with all our internet ptoperties research-ready to find a house. It didn't take long to realize we needed the expertise of an island realtor.We quickly chose Karen because of her Big Island real estate experience. But we were thrilled that Karen also shares the island culture and the Aloha spirit, (yes, she does hula too!) Karen coordinated our purchase process even though we were in California. It is our pleasure to recommend Karen Bail.
 
My husband and I decided to move home to the islands after living on the mainland for many years. Karen assisted us with the purchase of our primary residence in Kamuela, HI. Karen was very knowledgeable of the area and was of great help in showing us prospective properties in the area that we wanted to reside in. She was very helpful in all aspects of our negotiations and purchase of our home. Karen was very attentive to detail. This year Karen again helped us in searching for a beach home in the Kealakekua Bay area....Again she found us that perfect ocean front property in Napo'opo'o in a small gated community. Everything on this purchase worked out to our satisfaction and I highly recommend Karen to assist in your real estate needs!
 
Karen sold a house for us during difficult market conditions. She helped make the process as smooth and stress free as possible. Her staging tips were very helpful. I highly recommend Karen
