Matt Daniells, REALTOR® (B)

"Where do I begin? Eleven years ago I met Matt and asked him to help me find a home for my parents. They were living on Oahu and my father was recovering from major surgery and now disabled and my mother who was already physically disabled. What could of been the most stressful time in my life, was made easy with Matts help. He never lost patience with me and my list of demands. He understood the needs of Senior living. From house hunting to closing he was personable and the most professional. With Matt’s help my parents had a very smooth transition. I should also say that we stayed within our price range. We have remained friends over the years and about a year ago we talked about possibly finding a place in Hana where my husband and I could just go to relax and possibly retire. What started out as a dream has now become another reality. From the first walk thru to closing Matt made it a wonderful and stress-free experience. Thank you Matt!"
– Colleen H.

I have found him to be very honest as well as knowledgeable in the fast changing real estate market on Maui. Being a long time resident himself he understands the different neighborhoods and cultural diversity of Hawaii. I would (and have) recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate on Maui."
– Randy Y.

"I have had the pleasure of working with Matt Daniells as my realtor and I would highly recommend him to anyone and everyone. He did everything in a timely manner and always got back to me as fast as possible. All of my millions of questions were always answered and never once did he show a sign of frustration with everything going on. The closing was done so quickly, I barely had time to keep up, but he was always walking me through each process step by step. If I ever plan on buying another place or hear of someone looking, I will in a heartbeat recommend them to Matt. I am forever thankful for him, Debra Devaris and the team behind everything. I hope to be working with them again sometime in the future."
– Alyssa N.


“Thanks again for all you have done for us. When my husband and I were looking for a 2nd home on Maui, we were referred to Gloria. We were very pleased with her flexibility and attentiveness to our needs. Since we were coming over from Oahu, she quickly worked with our schedules from the start of home showings to the end when we got our keys. Gloria made us feel like family rather than clients that has created a more meaningful relationship.”
– Catherine D.

“It has been a pleasure to work with Gloria. She is professional but also very personable. I was looking to buy my first home and Gloria knew exactly what I wanted.

Gloria made me feel comfortable and she was very supportive and informative throughout the whole process. I never thought it was possible to own a new home in Maui. I highly recommend her service!

– Zillow user hsumibcayrita

“Gloria is amazing! We’re so happy to have worked with her and to know her! I saw a home we loved while browsing the real estate website and literally the day after contacting Gloria we were viewing the home. When we actually walked into the home I knew, I had to buy this home and I told Gloria “we love this home, we want to buy it!” She said “okay, we need to move quickly!” The next day we were putting in a bid and we were able to outbid another buyer! Gloria helped us through the entire process even accommodating us to have contractors look at the place before we even officially owned it. Gloria also was very meticulous during the entire buy process, there was a point when the seller was trying to get a bit more money out of us but Gloria had built in protections in how she wrote up our counter offer and we didn’t have to go up anymore. So, not only were we in the process of buying but at the same time Gloria was helping us to sell our old place! It was crazy but Gloria helped us so much, even setting up a cleaner and plumber where needed. She definitely went above and beyond the call of duty, even answering our texts late at night to ensure everything went smoothly. We couldn’t be happier with our home purchase and sale, which we got more than we wanted! I would and do highly recommend Gloria as your realtor. There are realtors and then there is Gloria who not only provides an excellent service to you but does her job superbly. We can’t wait to buy our next house so we can work with her again!”
– Farron C.

“Gloria was amazing at helping me find the perfect property to buy! Her expertise coupled with her knowledge of exactly what I was looking made for the perfect fit and I found the property I have been dreaming of. I can’t recommend or thank her enough for all she did to make this happen for me!”
– Elizabeth S.

“My husband And I decided we wanted to Start looking for homes. We were walking through the mall one day and came upon fine island properties as we were looking At the active listings they had Gloria Walked out of the office and immediately asked us if we needed help. My husband and I felt so comfortable with her we walked into the office and discussed what we want to do. This was two years ago, we were on and off looking for homes Gloria never rushed or pushed us she always just was there to help with any questions or concerns. If it wasn’t for her and the help she gave us I don’t think we would be where we are today in owning our own home. I definitely recommend Gloria Ezera to anyone and everyone.”
– Kalae K.

“Early June our adult daughter approached us about the possibility of helping them purchase a condo at Puuone Towers. Our family went to Greg Lussier about the prospect of using the equity in our home to assist the kids. We asked Greg if he knew a realtor and he recommended Gloria Ezera, Fine Island Properties.

So we reached out and contacted Gloria, she met the family in her office and went over the various paper work, timeline, her roles and the many questions we had as first time buyers in many years. She showed us several properties at Puuone Tower. WE chose #310, and the process began.

She walked along side us as we began the journey to home owners for our young adult family. Gloria was always quick to respond to our questions whether thru email, texting or phone messages. She made time on several occasions to meet us at the condo: so we could relook at various items, or measure rooms, check on electrical…plumbing…window fixtures…. If Gloria did not know an answer to one of our questions or if we found things that were incorrect. She would seek and find the answer for us or correct errors.

After 45 days, on August 1st we became the proud owner of #310 with keys in hand and ready for the remolding.
Thank you Gloria for all your work, knowledge, and time!”
– Renee A.

She has a wonderful personality and is easy to work with. We can heartily recommend Gloria for help with your real estate needs. 5 stars!”
– Bob & Loretta

“I loved working with Gloria. This was my first home purchase but not my first experience with a realtor. My husband and I looked into buying a home a year or so ago and didn’t get much support from the realtor at that time. That experience made me very hesitant to start the process again but from the very first conversation I had with Gloria she made me feel like I could trust her. She never pushed me out of my comfort zone, listened to what I was looking for and delivered to the “T” what I wanted. She advocated for me to get what I wanted and what was fair from the seller and was always available whenever I had questions. She is knowledgeable, responsive and accommodating. I will use Gloria and her expertise again in the future”

She got to know us quickly and understood what we were looking for even though we were still deciding on vacation home versus permanent residence. She refined our search that fit our criteria, and showed us options and comparisons. Pat was patient with us as we looked at some places multiple times during the process as we were narrowing in on our favorites. She is quite knowledgeable of all of the Wailea/Kihei properties and her recommendations were highly regarded. She is well versed in the financing/closing process which helped immensely being from off Island. When it came to the inspections she was present with concerns and actions.

We would recommend her wholeheartedly."

Pat has been generous and tireless throughout the entire process, and I recommend her to anyone wanting to have a successful outcome as well as a very enjoyable experience!"

It was very reassuring to have you there to advise us on various requirements for the purchase and very good of you to finalize to many aspects of the purchase when we were not able to be on location.

Kehau Akau, REALTOR® (S)

“Before purchasing my townhome, I had been dreaming of having a home to call my own. I had no idea where to begin or what my first steps would be. Kehau spent hours answering many of my questions. I was primarily concerned with location and price. She provided me with various listings in the area I desired and stayed within my budget (this was key). She worked very quickly to show me each listings. And when I was ready, she put all the paperwork together diligently. She assisted in negotiating the price for the property, always taking into account reasonable and compromising offers. I purchased my first home $10,000 under asking price and was also able to negotiate $3,000 in closing costs. Kehau was able to make my dream come true. Although I did not think of a townhouse to be my first home, I’ve fallen in love.”

She was patient when our loan wasn’t going as planned, checked in with me constantly, and kept me updated on everything. She is easy to contact, and always on top of the deadlines. She made us feel important and reassured us that everything would work out, and if not, she had other solutions for us. She is trustworthy, and I always recommend her to any of my friends looking to buy or sell their home.”
