Testimonials Title






"Brett is a true professional. He is always available to talk to and very knowledgeable. I knew right away that we could trust him with selling our home. We liked him so much that when we wanted to purchase a new home, there was no other that we wanted to work with. Brett and his team was really good at communicating and always on point. We met every deadline on time if not earlier. I cannot express how thankful and blessed that we were able to work with Team Aka. I will highly recommend him and his team to anyone with real estate needs. Brett and his team started off as our realtors, but now have turned into lifetime friends. Mahalo!"

"Overall we decided to work with Brett Aka and his team, because we had a sense of confidence that they would be fully capable to assist us with both our sale of our current home and purchase of a new home. We knew we were in good hands.

Kandace and Katherine were both excellent in coordinating the paperwork and property showings. We really appreciate how much support we had during the sale of our home.

We would highly recommend Brett Aka to anyone looking to buy or sell property in Hawaii!"

- Mark & Kristina Rau

"I've worked with Brett previously on the board of a non-profit organization, so I was already very familiar with the Brett's professionalism and attention to detail. With this being the first single family home purchase for my wife and me, what stood out most was Brett's EQ. Home buying, especially in this market, is an emotional roller coaster and Brett tactfully managed our expectations and coached us through the highs and lows. We are so grateful to Brett for helping us to find our beautiful home!"

- Kyson & Robyn Morikuni

"Brett is filled with integrity, and that is one of things I value most. He's helped many of my clients purchase and sell their real estate, and it made sense for his team to guide me through this purchase.

Bottom line, Team Aka has it down. They have each area of the real estate purchase process covered at levels that exceed expectations."

- Chris Chow

- Adam & Laura Dornbush

"Initial interview was impressive and Brett Aka was clearly knowledgeable with a clear plan to maximize the sale of our townhome.

"Team Aka was excellent and they communicate well with each other and with us. I think that this team approach is the way to go. Each member had their strengths and expertise that they contributed to the marketing of our townhouse. They were always prompt in responding.

Kandace Achong and Katherine Martines were both excellent. I wish I could have met them in person to thank them for their excellent work.

I would use them again in the future."

- Lloyd & Sharon Kobayashi

"Brett is simply unique in his personal relatability, patience, level of preparation and thoroughness of his research on properties. The most important consideration for us was 'can we trust our broker'. Without a doubt - yes, we knew we could trust Brett to be candid, honest, thorough and transparent.

The house buying experience with Brett is not a impersonal experience nor is it one that centers on a financial exchange. We trust Brett and consider him a friend. This friendship was formed through the process of working with Brett and the Better Homes team.

This was our second time in 4 years working with Brett on either a sale or purchase of a home. Brett understood and recognized that the process was never about the cost of the home or the sale. He sincerely strives to ensure that you are getting into the home and neighborhood that you will be happy living in.

Brett cares about putting families and others into a home that they will love and into the right community environment based on the needs and desires of the buyers and for those whose homes are for sale he is sensitive to their needs as well."

- Kenton & Viseth Ngauy

"We were on a tight budget and timeline for getting our home ready to sell. Brett and his team came by our house and gave us a priority list of things to get done, and helped us select paint colors and materials they thought would be most marketable. They were great at getting contractors in to complete work that we could not do in a very timely manner, and they were always polite, helpful, and responsive, even when we called or texted from Home Depot at insane hours of the day or night. They came by the house multiple times to check on our progress, make suggestions, and offered to send help if needed. Brett really studied the market and gave us a really good idea of a possible fare market value for our home. He kept us up-to-date and informed on what was happening and how things were going. Brett implemented a great sales strategy for our home, and we ended up selling for over our original asking price. I really can't say enough about how fantastic everyone on the team was. We are incredibly happy with the work Brett and his team did for us."

- Rob & Mindi Shoemake
