Brian Shaughnessy, Honolulu (Seller)
"Kim was the best realtor I have ever worked with.
She likely had bigger sales elsewhere during my transaction but she made me feel as if my property was her top priority. I would strongly recommend working with her for all of one’s real estate needs."
John Thompson, Plattsburgh, NY (Seller)
"Kim Balisacan handled the sale of our property in a friendly and professional manner. She responded quickly to all our questions and concerns, guiding us through the process calmly and efficiently. We enjoyed working with Kim and wholeheartedly recommend her."
N Garrod, Honolulu (Seller)
"We have worked with Kim Wong Balisacan before and our daughter worked with her as well. Always a positive experience.
Kim is extremely responsive, even after hours. She always has the right tone and is very encouraging and supportive. She put out every effort to fix any problems when they arose and made the sale go smoothly in spite of hiccups along the way.
Kristy Hasegawa was very efficient with all the documents and communicated well whenever anything needed doing.
Kim is a great agent and we would highly recommend her to anyone. We will definitely call her again if the need arises."
Lei, Honolulu (Buyer)
"Kim handled several unit sales in a previous building in which I lived. During my interactions with her at that time, I thought she asked extremely pertinent questions and was knowledgeable about condo buildings. When I started my search for an agent, I immediately thought of Kim.
Kim is very knowledgeable about the sales process. She helped to guide me through the process and made me feel at ease about every step of the purchase.
Excellent customer service skills!
Although there were multiple people involved in handling this transaction, it almost felt like it was handled by one person. That seamless!
Kim and the team at BHGRE are fantastic! Their ability to explain everything made me feel at ease about the process. Fabulous!"
Summer Plourd, Nevada (Buyer)
"Kim is amazing and came highly recommended from my best friend, Cheryll Aldridge. I had been referred to another agent by another colleague but that person didn’t have the follow through like Kim did. Kim works to build networks to get the deal done while looking out for the best interests of her clients. Would recommend Kim in a heartbeat for anyone looking for a customer service oriented agent that can make things happen!
I feel like Kim surrounds herself with top notch professionals and that really shows from her team to the networks she develops in the real estate business."
"Working with Kim was a fantastic experience. Her expertise and knowledge helped us navigate an incredibly challenging market and find a home in our ideal neighborhood in an extremely tight timeframe. Kim went above and beyond advocating for us throughout the purchase process and keeping our best interests in mind. She made sure we were comfortable and informed every step of the way, which was very reassuring to us as first time homebuyers. I would absolutely recommend Kim to friends and family."
Kalina A. (Buyer)
"Kim Balisacan was super responsive and easy to work with. She has a lot of local expertise and is well connected since she's been in the industry for quite some time. We would highly recommend Kim to all our friends and family!
We got the second house we bid on with her and it's better than we could have imagined."

Her constant communication skills and flexible schedule makes any upcoming event running smoothly. She is a good 'people person'. Above all else- I trust Kim, and would recommend her to anyone that complies with all the values she displays."
Aki & Francis, Waikele (Seller)
"Simply put: Kim was nothing short of AMAZING for us from start to finish. Her marketing expertise and extensive knowledge of all the processes involved paled only in comparison to her upbeat personality and willingness to go above and beyond what we could have ever expected. For anyone looking for an agent who is genuinely friendly, extremely knowledgeable, fiercely efficient, & always has your best interest at heart, look no further than Kim Balisacan!"
Corinne, Waialae (Seller)
"Kim was always very timely in getting. extra. services. done. Without. her help in. obtaining these. "extras" I doubt. the transaction could be completed as quickly. Being.a quarantined senior and having lost many of my own business.contacts Kim was particularly helpful."
Brian & Faye Takahashi (Seller)
"Kim goes beyond what is expected and exceeded our expectations. Her experience helped us guide the process and the sale of the home went smoothly. We highly recommend her to help anyone with real estate services."
F. Yokoyama, Sacramento (Seller)
"Kim Balisacan is an excellent, knowledgeable, and trustworthy real estate agent.
Having recently moved to the mainland, Kim handled all aspects of the sale of our property, from suggesting improvements on the home to increase the sale value, to connecting us with reliable contractors who did the home improvements. Having to work from the mainland, Kim handled all the contacts and work with the the home improvement contractors.
She met with each contractor, helped us negotiate the price, met the contract at our property to see that the work was done in a professional manner, and completed on time.
Kim was there to guide us and help us with any and all unexpected issues that arose during the sale of the property. As the seller, we did little to no work, as everything was left in the capable hands of Kim B.
Kim handled the contract negotiations with all potential buyers, allowing us to settle on the most competent buyer at the best price.
During escrow, Kim kept us abreast of events as they happened in real time, and worked with both sellers and buyers, escrow, financing, legal matters, etc to insure that all parties and demands were met and satisfied upon closing.
Kim goes above and beyond what she had to do as our real estate agent and helped us navigate the intricate, and often confusing process of selling one's property. Kim is absolutely amazing. Thank you!"
Peg Garland Honolulu (Buyer)
"Kim was the agent when my neighbor sold ... I find her professional, energetic, knowledgeable and really a delight to work with. AND patient and very accommodating."
Bob Tam, Honolulu (Seller)
"Kim not only handled all the transactions efficiently, she had such good judgment about the potential buyers. Her experience in understanding the personalities of the bidders on my home paved the way for choosing just the right one. Then she gave me and my buyer advice and coaching throughout the transaction on how to handle several concerns on both sides. At the conclusion of the sale both the buyer and I were happy with everything we negotiated. When I would call, text, or email her I almost always got an immediate reply unless she was on the road. She checked in with me regularly if I had not been in touch with her. She had good contacts with contractors to do repairs and for re-carpeting of my house prior to putting it on sale. I was pleased with the price and quality of that work. She also got advice from an attorney associated with her firm to help me with my transition to a new house. Kim is not only a competent, experienced realtor, but she is friendly and personable. She understands how to work with people and negotiate reasonably and effectively. I have nothing but high praise for how Kim handled every aspect of my sale."

Lots of experience. Great contacts to refer when we needed to hire companies for cleaning, carpeting, etc. Always gave us quick responses and always kept us updated. Everything was handled quickly and efficiently. The sale went through quicker than expected. Kim guided us through every step of the way.
