Couple Now Enjoying a Piece of Paradise

Greg Poppy Maui Realtor

“Greg was the realtor that contacted me when I requested information on a condo in Kihei. From that first call, Greg was friendly, informative and very easy to communicate with. My husband and I live in Connecticut, and buying a second home in Maui was a complicated and, at times, overwhelming experience. Greg was with us every step of the way with guidance and expertise. I had so many questions about the properties, the process and the things I needed to have in place to become the owner of a Hawaiian property. Greg was so responsive when questions or concerns arose. He always responded quickly to calls, texts or emails and was very accommodating about communicating with us when it was convenient to Eastern Standard Time (which runs 6 hours ahead of HST). I knew from my first conversation with Greg that he was a realtor who would provide first class service and also gave me an immediate feeling that he was a realtor that I could whole-heartedly trust. I am now an owner of my own piece of paradise on the beautiful island of Maui. I would not hesitate to recommend Greg to anyone who is in the market for a new home. He is friendly, trustworthy, intelligent and very knowledgeable. Mahalo, Greg Poppy.” (Shogren)

“Greg is a true professional in his industry. He is very conscientious and puts his clients’ interests always at the forefront. We were able to give him our preferences and desires on properties and he diligently found a nice shortlist to and consider. He was extremely helpful during the negotiation process and always available during the closing process. I highly recommend Greg’s services.” (B. Shogren)

Greg guided this first time home buyer through each step of the process and when things got overwhelming, he provided the reassurance needed in order to complete the process.
