Mr. Wayne Hutchinson of Hutchinson Appraisals is a deal-killer. His appraisals are so particular and demanding that the buyer can’t obtain lender approval. My advice: if Mr. Hutchinson is assigned as your appraiser, then dismiss him from your property and request another one from the appraisal management company. That’s less hassle than coping with Mr. Hutchinson and his deal-breaking appraisals.In our case, he spent over two hours going through a 2400 sq ft house. He audited all of the room measurements against the house plans (good thing we had a copy of the house plans) by measuring Every. Single. Length. And. Width. He decided that a 27-year-old permit on a lava-rock retaining wall was invalid. When we brought up the issue with the Department of Plans and Permits, the supervisor examined the permit and photos and said that the permit was valid and no corrective action was required. Mr. Hutchinson objected to DPP’s conclusions and refused to update the appraisal comments.Part of the Veteran Administration’s appraisal criteria for a VA loan is safety and habitability. We were simply attempting to refinance a conventional loan into a VA loan, but Mr. Hutchinson was so excessive on these criteria that the lender would not even conduct manual underwriting. One mortgage broker said that Mr. Hutchinson is widely known and feared as the island’s most difficult appraiser.During the appraisal Mr. Hutchinson was gruff, intimidating, and impatient. When we offered him a copy of a previous appraisal’s floor plans, he scolded us that he’d draw his own and implied that we were trying to co-opt his appraisal. He was physically unsteady on staircases, and at one point I was afraid that he’d stumble and fall down our steps. I was afraid to let him out of my sight.I’ve already filed written complaints with the VA Regional Lending Center, the state’s Regulated Industries Complaints Office, and the licensing association. All have declined to get involved.
This real estate company is ran by husband and wife Lynn and Malcom Shiroma . They are very unethical and will lie cheat and steal .. DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THESE PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SCAMMERS
This company is not worth using. The minimal is done on their part. I had them and whenever I asked for updates it took at LEAST a week to get a response. We always found out after the fact when a repair needed to be done. I just ended my agreement and I was told our unit is looking good when in fact there are holes in the wall, curtain rod pulled down, fridge bulb broken with glass everywhere and the front door needs to be replaced. Non communicative, lazy and didn't do their job thoroughly.
Chris is very helpful, I appreciate all the information and prices are very reasonable. I would highly reccommend Takasaki Real Estate for your appraisal.
I love Gentry Homes !!! Great Quality Homes..My house definetly feels like a home................
I've been in my apt. For 19 years for which Hawaiian Properties has managed for about 16 years. During all those years I've never had a problem with them at all. My needs were always addressed and resolved in a timely manner.
They don't care about you only your money.. They are never in the office when you need them.. You are on there time.. Think about it before you try calling them
I don't know if you'd call my experience with KMJ Realty a bad one, since it was hardly an experience at all...reason being was that their agent David Uyehara failed to make it to the showing we had scheduled. Not only did he not show up, but he also did not answer or return my multiple calls and voice message. In a way, I feel like I dodged a bullet on potentially renting from this apparently unprofessional company. So for anyone who runs across a KMJ Realty ad on Craigslist, and especially if the contact is David Uyehara...consider yourself warned.
Management of their services are the worst! It's hard to get a hold of them and when you do, they always try to find an excuse to not attend your needs. I would not recommend this company to anyone.
Just got off the phone with with them after calling about a rental listing in Makiki. I have no idea what is wrong with the woman (and I am using this term politely) who answered, but I'm not sure how asking about available listings led me to her snapping, "You don't have to be so arrogant!" (This was after me clarifying that it didn't have to be a 2 bedroom apartment) I've lived in parts of the Mainland before, but this is Hawaii. What happened to the Aloha Spirit or just plain old good customer service? If you treat your customers this way, good luck staying in business. Maybe this woman was menopausal or having a bad day or something, but STAY AWAY AT ALL COSTS. 4 1 star reviews don't lie, and quite frankly, I would give them 0 stars if I could. BEWARE.
