4 Ways to Be Ready for a Bidding War

Finding and purchasing a home that will meet your needs is a significant and often stressful time. Our goal is to make this transition as smooth as possible. We are experts in the area, and once we learn what it is that you’re looking for, finding your dream home is simple.

Before you start looking for a home you should ask yourself a few questions:

  • Where do you want to live? Are there particular neighborhoods or communities that you like?
  • What kind of house would you like (need)? Are you looking for a particular style? How many bedrooms and bathrooms do you want?
  • Is a home office a necessity? Do you need a bonus room or flex-room?
  • Do you entertain often? Is a home suitable for entertaining something you’re looking for?
  • Do you want a yard, pool, gated or guard gated community?
  • Have you determined your price range or consulted a lender to determine the best price range?

Searching for your dream home can be a time-consuming experience. Working with our professional team will make the process much more efficient!

I wanted to take a moment and express my gratitude, appreciation, and thanks for the job well done. Your drive, motivation and enthusiasm for wanting to get me into a home were evident at all times throughout the buying process. I appreciate your effort, and because of it, this process was an enjoyable and informative one for me. If ever there is an instance or conversation that comes up for me to recommend you, I will, with no reservations. Thank you for helping me purchase my first home!

I actually signed up with The Stott Team so I could view homes for sale online. Working with Melissa was one of the most pleasant transactions I’ve ever experienced. She made purchasing a home very quick and easy. She was there with us every step of the way, through the ups and downs of the home buying process. I can honestly say that over the past couple of months, I have not only worked with just any Realtor, rather, I have made a great friend. Thank you Melissa and Mahalo to The Stott Team for a job well done!

Tracey helped us to buy the perfect condo in Kailua, and she was Incredible! If you want to buy a home and feel 100% confident, work with Tracey and she'll take care of you. She handled every detail, every contingency, and made the progress so simple and seamless, it really took the stress out of the home buying process. When we had questions or concerns, she was honest and up front, provided a ton of helpful information, and let us make all the right decisions. That's all you can ask for in an agent.We will 100% use her again and highly recommend her!

Thank you Tracey and the Stott Real Estate crew!

Every time we look out our windows and see the waves crashing on the beach, we Thank God for the Stott Team! They really found us the perfect house our DREAM HOME! I never want to move. You really listened so well to EXACTLY what we were looking for. Just when we were about to give up, not finding what we were looking for; yopiur Team persisted and we went above and beyond to take pictures of our new home and sent us videos to the mainland since we bought our place a virtually sight unseen.Tears come to my eyes when I think of how much of a dream come true our life has become. And we owe all this to The Stott Team. You all wanted to make sure we were making the right move and knew exactly what we were doing. The responsiveness to our calls and questions and ability to scout out investment properties after we boughtour dream home is helping us to retire early, knowing that we'll never have tomove again. Your ability to find those great deals that aren't even on the market yet is just what we needed in a Realtor1 I'd never consider using anyother Realtor than The Stott Team!

We had a stressful experience before with the wrong Agent and were concerned about finding someone we could trust. Our Team Buyer Specialist went above and beyond the call of duty! She provided exellent service with kindness & integrity and kept a positive upbeat attitude, which is a wonderful plus when your are trying to find a home. She was like an angel in our upside-down world of trying to buy from distance. There was no need to ever second guess; she was always in contact with us, upfront and always honest about everything. She made buying our home an ENJOYABLE experience!

I researched a number of Real Estate Websites and was nost impressed with STOTT.COM and the tie in with your Property Management Division. It provided me One-Stop Shopping since I will be renting the property until retirement. Even though I live five times zones away, I was very pleased with the communication from the Team. All were cleared and helful. I ended up with my dream retirement home (and at a good price). Thanks to your knowledge of the Honolulu County real estate market and your superior service!
