I just wanted to drop you a note expressing my gratitude for all your help selling my Maui home. It is very difficult to handle all the details of a successful sale from the mainland. You did a terrific job of not only selling our property quickly but coordinating significant upgrades, repairs, and improvements required to obtain top dollar. Through your efforts we not only received a very good primary offer but a back up offer as well. You provided excellent communications so we always knew what was happening. We could not be happier with the service you provided. Thank you for all your hard work and tireless commitment to our project.
I am a licensed broker on Oahu with Coldwell Banker Pacific Properties. I sold a home in Kihei to a great high school friend of mine several years ago and he and his wife recently decided to sell the home. I had met Sara at an Open House at Makena Surf condos while on a previous visit to Maui and was impressed with her knowledge of the Kihei/Wailea market and her warm personality.
I ended up co-listing the home with Sara and she did a terrific job as the main listing agent. The home had been a long term rental and ended up requiring quite a bit of repairs and updating prior to going on the market. Sara was quick to organize bids from various contractors and also went above and beyond by shopping for appliances, fixtures and regularly checking in to ensure the work was being done in a professional manner.
Sara continually updated the Seller and myself as to what was happening in the market and successfully negotiated an accepted offer within a few weeks of going on the market. We closed one week early and we even ended up getting a back- up offer.
The Seller was very pleased with the attention, professionalism and service that Sara provided along the way. She was easy to work with and I was also impressed with her attention to detail. I had to stay on top of my game to keep up with her.
I will gladly refer any of my clients who are looking to buy or sell on Maui to Sara. I have total confidence her ability to get the job done and to easily work with the client and their particular needs.

Fred Romvari exerts Zero Pressure of a Sales Person …
He’s not looking to provide advice for your Financial or Business Planning …
He told me if he could accurately predict the future … he would be at the Race Track …
He did however provide the most accurate and insightful Market Research we have ever personally experienced … Ever!
He was a great & attentive listener … (A rare yet essential talent) …
He asked the all necessary & required questions …
He came up with the perfect options in terms of properties worthy of consideration … and ultimately the perfect match!
He then actually found someone to rent the property until we were ready to live in Maui …
And … he is about to do so again …
We live in Massachusetts with a 6 hour time difference and yet Fred stays in close contact and is currently assisting us in additional investment considerations …
Fred Romvari is the “Consummate Professional” and we would unequivocally recommend him to anyone (which we have) without hesitation or reservation …
Fred Romvari is a 5 Star, World Class Professional working in a 5 Star World Class Market .

If you looked at his bio, you would want to hire Fred to manage a large real estate portfolio for your family or company. Although his real estate expertise is deep and wide, I was even more impressed with his day-to-day management of details during our escrow. He kept us informed almost on a daily basis of all documents necessary for the transaction to move along smoothly and close on time. Needless to say, I would highly recommend Fred whether you’re planning to buy on Maui or have decided to list a property for sale…
When my wife and I became interested in buying a place in Wailea, we hooked up with the very professional Fred Romvari. He was extremely helpful. Fred knows the market on Maui so very well. He was able to assist us in refining our thought processes to arrive at the proper conclusion as to just what our housing desire was. Along the way, we were able to view several housing options until we decided on a beautiful condominium in Kai Malu. He advised us with knowledge and with concern about trying to get us into a good long term investment. We could not be happier with our housing selection. And we feel extremely grateful to Fred for guiding us in the Maui real estate market. He was then a helpful Realtor. He is now a fine friend. Thank you, Fred!
You were enthusiastic, full of energy, great communication, very responsive, you risked your own money on the staging showing that you really stood behind your advice, you showed great knowledge of your market, and I definitely felt you were giving it your all. And I can’t stress enough how happy we were, and that we would absolutely use you again, without hesitation. I just realized I forgot to mention your honesty! That is one of the most important attributes anyone can have as far as I’m concerned, and it was never a question with you. And I really appreciate that.

I wanted to convey to you your value to us as a local realtor. During one of our many visits to Maui…we have several occasions to meet with realtors to discuss the possibility of purchasing property in the south Maui area. Each time we walked away without the possibility of purchasing property. However…meeting you changed all that. You gave us a smile and as much time as we needed to decide on a property. You worked hard to find something within our price range and didn’t stop until we were satisfied. You provided us with some of the most hard working and efficient people to help with escrow and close the loan without a hitch. We cannot convey to you in words the joy and satisfaction we have in knowing that we found our perfect retirement home. We will never forget the effort and the smile. Thank you so much for all that you did for us!!

Sharron Barnett Client, Seller
Sara helped us buy and sell our property. She is very informative, highly educated in real estate and knows the island very well. She is pleasant and fun to talk to yet very professional in her field. Doing business over the phone and internet because we live in another state was not a problem at all. We highly recommend her for your real estate needs.

Danny S Client, Buyer
From the first time that I met Sara Ferguson, I felt her confidence and knowledge in real estate as I have bought properties in Hawaii and I’m no stranger to the real estate scene.
Sara was always accessible, prompt, cordial, and very professional. I could always rely on her to call when she said she would call, to arrive when she said she’d arrive, to find answers to my (many) questions and advise me.
I found her to be entirely reliable and professional. I would certainly not hesitate to sell, or buy a house with Sara when the time comes for me to sell or purchase real estate again. What stood out about Sara was that she always put her clients first, and it definitely showed throughout the entire escrow process.”
I would highly recommend Sara to anyone.

Sara Ferguson knows how to make a deal! Sara, single handedly, negotiated a condo purchase for us a year ago, at a great price point, and at the location we wanted. This girl knows what she is doing and has the ability to quickly see all the important issues and develop a stratagy to make a sale. I have owned a sales and marketing company for 35 years and there are few people who have the skill set Sara brings to the real estate business-Product knowledge, energy, and the ability to drive a successful result while making everyone feel good about the transaction. Hope you are lucky enough to have Sara working for you!

Jenna Rose Guenett Client, Buyer
If you’re looking for a realtor in Maui, just call Sara! She is wonderful. My husband and I are doing some preliminary looking at homes in Wailea, and Sara spent time with us as if we were ready to buy that day. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the area, availability, and the properties themselves, as well as the process of buying from the mainland. She listened to our needs, and showed us a variety of homes, in order to understand us better. She’s high-energy, creative, fun, smart, and best of all, Sara’s great passion for the island is absolutely contagious!

Mark & Deb Paukert Client, Buyer
We wanted to thank you for all the work you have done for us over the past few years. Several times when we we came to Maui on vacation you would meet with us and take the time to show us houses / condos not knowing if we would ever make it back to buy one. Then when we finally were ready to make the move, you worked hard for us in dealing with the sellers and making sure we got a good deal. We appreciate your attention to detail not only on the offers but reviewing documents with Wells Fargo and helping with the walk-though in the final unit. It has been a pleasure working with you and we would highly recommend you to any other buyers.

Shaun Moore Client, Seller
To The McMonigle Group,
I have a deal now to sell my Maui condo. Sara Ferguson referred to me by Mcmonigle Group, found a Buyer and the sale price is higher than what they are selling for. I don’t know how she did it. Through her advice the bank is going to go for the outstanding balance and just 1099 me for the difference. The bank was trying to hold me to the deficiency but because of what she told me I played hard ball and now they have backed down. Please pass it on to John Mcmonigle that she has done a great job and helped me so much.
