Carol led us every step of the way in selling our Princeville hale. She was phenomenal! We appreciate her extra special attention she gave us almost daily, in selling our property. She kept us well informed of all properties listed and selling. Her photos and real estate catalog for our listing were extremely well done. She would stop by at any time, when we needed some questions answered. Her knowledge in selling Kauai real estate is par excellent. Her communication skills are what we consider the most important issue involved with a realtor. Again, excellent! Carol views the real estate market picture in Kauai to the tee! We put all of our trust in selling our hale into Carol. She ran the show and she succeeded brilliantly. We highly recommend Carol Skon in selling any property on Kauai. She is tops in her field. We are very grateful to Carol for her guidance in selling our hale. No doubt about it! She is the BEST! Susan Tappan / Steven Lashbrook and TAK-0

  After 14 years of ownership, we made the tough decision to sell our unique little piece of paradise in Princeville, HI. A very good friend of ours recommended Carol to us. So we met with her, and knew immediately that we wanted her as our Realtor. Carol is the ultimate professional who thoroughly understands the Kauai Real Estate Market. Carol’s goal was to make sure we were getting the most exposure to potential buyers as possible. Carol worked endless hours making our sale become a reality. She thoroughly communicated with us every step of the way exceeding our already high expectations. If you are thinking about selling or buying a home on Kauai there is no one else that we would recommend. Carol is knowledgeable, professional, friendly, genuine, a great communicator, but probably most important; Carol instills a great deal of integrity and trust into the relationship that you build with her. Carol Skon is the Realtor that you want working for you. Mike & Diane Gilbert

  My husband and I had not been to our condo in 5 years; we live 6000 miles away from Kaua'i. When we needed to sell, a friend recommended Carol. We found her to be knowledgeable and her experience in her field was invaluable in marketing our home. No detail was too small and no job too big, from picking out new carpeting to inventory to rearranging the furniture so it would look more pleasing. Her photos of our condo "invited" viewers to live on Kauai in our home. She always spent our money on renovations and fix-ups in a very conservative way. We could reach her easily by phone or email and all explanations were clear and concise. Her advice was spot-on and we relied on it often. When our condo sold, everything that needed to happen was finished on time. We have bought and sold quite a few houses in our marriage, and Carol stands out as one of the most professional and attentive realtor with whom we have worked. We cannot recommend her highly enough.

  Carol Skon is an educated, knowledgeable, detail-oriented professional. She helped us get a foreclosed property at an amazing price in a very competitive market. Carol is honest and caring, and she kept us well informed of all the issues that could have arisen in the process. However, everything went very smoothly and without a hitch. We will definitely work with her in the future and would not hesitate to recommend her to our friends. She is definitely a 5-stars realtor. Thank you, Carol, for helping us buy our second home in this beautiful paradise!  
  ~ Dr and Mrs Elliott Parivar  
  Carol handled the sale of our Emmalani Court home with true expertise. She kept us fully informed, went out of her way to arrange any repairs found necessary during the inspection and kept us calm while negotiations were taking place. She truly went out of her way to make the whole process as easy as possible. Her friendly attitude and professionalism impressed us from the moment we met her and we would absolutely use her again.

  I just wanted to say thank you for all your hard work in selling my condo in Princeville. You went far beyond what other agents would have done for me. I have highly recommended you to my friends. Should I need the services of a real-estate agent, you will be the first person I call. Please feel free to use me as a reference should you need one. I can’t thank you enough.  
  ~ David “Doc” McCormick  
  If you want an enthusiastic, market-savvy, knowledgeable and experienced realtor and negotiator, you need look no further. Carol was recommended to me by friends who had a great experience selling their condo in the same market. Carol spent invested time in researching the market and listening to my expectations. Together we devised a plan forward. I learned so very much about the market, how to present the “island paradise dream”, owner’s responsibilities from beginning to end (which were new to me at the time) as well as managing my expectations. Carol walked me through every step. She communicated with me 2 or 3 times a week preparing for the market listing. My condo was listed with Carol and received several viable offers within 3 days of the first open-house. Escrow was closed 2 weeks early due to Carol’s tenacity and management of the process between me, the buyer’s realtor and Title Company. Carol is a 5+ star agent and is highly recommended for both buyers and sellers.

  Looking for the BEST Realtor on Kauai to work with when buying or selling a property? Look no further. Carol Skon is without a doubt the BEST!!! My wife and I wanted to sell our SeaLodge condo in Princeville and Carol's name came up repeatedly as a recommended Realtor. After visiting with her only a brief time, we were convinced she was the Realtor for us. What a blessing that has turned out be. Having been a Realtor myself in the past, I am familiar with the many details that have to be tended to in marketing, presentation, and showing properties. As the condo was in a vacation rental program, Carol needed to coordinate with the property manager to minimize disruptions to paying guests. Carol found a buyer within about 30 days after signing the listing contract and coordinated the process while we were on the mainland. The bottom line in any recommendation is would we use her services again? Absolutely! Carol is very professional and a total pleasure to work with."  
  ~ GL and Kelli Scarborough  
  An old friend recommended that I call Carol to handle the sale of my condo in Princeville. I found Carol to be amazing, simply the best of the best! She is a consummate professional with a heart of gold. She exhibited an uncanny ability to handle possible snags long before they became an issue, that, coupled with years of experience, work ethic, and expertise, puts her head and shoulders above the other agents I have dealt with through the years. She has earned my complete trust and respect and I am honored to relate my experience.

  My husband and I have taken several trips to Kauai in the last 10 years, and have often discussed the possibility of retiring here. We realized on our most recent trip, however, that we didn't want to wait until retirement to have a place of our own available when we visit. We found Carol Skon, and from the minute we called her, she was amazing. Within a few days, she'd found several possible properties for us--all within our budget and all properties that we could imagine ourselves owning. She took her time to tell us the pros and cons of each and also recommended people she knew who could help fix any issues we noticed. She really listened. I expected that once we'd chosen a property, we wouldn't hear from Carol much, but that was not the case. She tirelessly helped us through the sometimes difficult loan process. When the sale finally went through, she cheered right along side us. Mahalo Carol!

  We have used a number of real estate agents over many years, but Carol Skon has been the best Realtor Broker that we have ever dealt with. Carol was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, professional and personable. Since buying real estate in Hawaii and living stateside in Oregon created a bit of a challenge, Carol patiently helped and guided us each step of the way. Each person Carol referred in the reguired purchase process was also someone you could trust and rely on their judgement. We asked Carol a lot of questions and she answered each one honestly and completely. Carol was a great resource. We would highly recommend Carol and would without a doubt use her services again. We really enjoyed working with her and now consider her as a friend.  
  ~ Ken and Janice Delzer  
  We want to say how satisfied we are with working with Carol. We had our Condo on the market for over 2 yrs. We knew it was a hard market, but we were unsatisfied that we were not getting the response that we thought we should be getting. When we contacted Carol, she was talking about "Key words" for us. She said several times that she wanted to work honestly and with integrity. Carol had listed our property and one week later she had MULTIPLE offers! Then the work started for Carol. She was in constant contact with the buyers' agent and the lender to hold the sale together. Only with her tenacity the sale went thru. We are recommending Carol in the future.

  My Wife and I have experienced 27 relocations. We have purchased and sold many homes with the assistance of many Real Estate Agents. We beagn to work with Carol in March, 2011 in order to purchase a home in Princeville, Kauai, Hawaii. During the following 6 months, Carol identified properties that met our criteria, consulted with us to develop an acquisition strategy, identified lenders, produced an offer/counter offer,and keep us informed as to the progress. When our offer was accepted, Carol identified home inspection professionals, insurance agents, utility providers, property management companies as well as numerous other contacts we needed to close on the property. During this time, Carol’s professionalism, sound judgment, superior knowledge of the Hawaiian market (and its idiosyncrasies), negotiating abilities, interpersonal skills, optimism, and tenacity facilitated our success. Carol Skon is the most knowledgeable and versatile Real Estate Professional we know.  
  ~ Jim and Polly Tucker  
  My husband and I sold our condo in April, 2012, after owning it for 20 years. Since we were on the mainland for most of the sale, Carol went out of her way in doing things for us. Her advice was always exactly right, and it is a privilege to know her and to work with her. She's the real estate agent everyone hopes for----simply the best.  
  ~ Roy and Bonnie Squires  
  I lived on the Island of Kauai for 9 years. I met Carol Skon when she sold my first condo in 2004. I recently sold my 2 bedroom condo and of course the only realtor I would consider was Carol. Not only is Carol the most professional realtor that I have done business with, she works hard for her clients. She even helped me buy my home on the mainland. Doing business with Carol has been a real pleasure. Not only is the best, she has become a great friend. When I visit the Island again, I will certainly see Carol and her husband Mike. Perhaps we'll even get in a game of golf. I've met a number of real estate agents in my life time, but never one better then Carol Skon. I recommend her highly.  
  ~ Lee Killeen  
  Selling a home is not an easy task let alone a short sale. It's a very personal event and having a real estate agent you can trust and rely on is an understatement. Carol and Debbie guided us through the entire process, hearing our frustrations, sympathizing with our situation and on occasion "talking us off a ledge" when things seemed in insurmountable. I can definitely say that without the two of them, we would not have had the succesful short sale outcome that we did. They are extremely professional, responsive and I would recommend their services to anyone, especially someone going through the unfortunate process of short selling their home.  
  ~ David and Dawn Castle  
  My husband and I recently worked with Carol Skon in the sale of our condo at Pali Ke Kua. We found her integrity, attention to detail and instant communication helpful. We listed our condo during a tough selling market, but she was able to do the job and get it done in a very short time. As sellers, we were extremely happy with her service, ideas and thoughtfulness. And our buyers were happy also. I have worked with hundreds of Realtors and find her to be one of the best in the business.  
  ~ Roxanne Carr, President, The Mortgage House  
  We recently worked with Carol on two transactions on Kauai. Carol is a great listener, and found the perfect property to suit our needs. She gave us sound pricing advice for the sale of our condo, and found a buyer the same week we listed! Everything about both transactions went smoothly, thanks to Carol keeping on top of the details. She kept us informed, and when issues arose, she found creative solutions to keep the process moving. We highly recommend Carol Skon and would use her again!  
  ~ John and Leah Stroup  
  Our experience with Carols expertise as a Real Estate Agent has been nothing but extra-ordinary. Her heart of gold manifests itself in her unwavering honesty and forthrightness in her service to others. The “others” in this case was US. Carol helped us with our short sale. She is an inspiration to all of us involved in this venture and we hope she will be for those reading this testimony. We most highly recommend her services to any who are considering any Real Estate business on Kauai.  
  ~ Steve and Jeanie Rosburg  
  Carol is one of a kind! We have dealt with lots of realtors in the course of many corporate transfers and eighteen moves. Carol is simply the best we have ever had. She is exceptionally pleasant, and we have no suggestions as to how she could improve her performance. Shari and Hiett Ward, Princeville, Hawaii  
  ~ Shari and Hiett Ward, Princeville, Hawaii  
  We are very pleased with Carol's efforts on our behalf, successfully selling our Princeville home. Despite the continuing soft market and having to deal with a somewhat difficult tenant, Carol persevered. Carol's enthusiasm, people skills,knowledge and attention to detail helped us avoid potential problems. We have bought and sold properties in Hawaii for 39 years. Carol Skon is the best Hawaii realtor we have had the privilege to work with. Mahalo nui loa !  
  ~ John and Nancy  
  “Making the decision to short sell your home is one of the hardest decisions you will have to make. Can't live in the house? Can't make the payments? Don't want to keep throwing money away? Talk to Debbie and Carol! They are the best. From offer to closing the process took a little over four months. It is a complicated process, but Debbie and Carol know what to do and when to make your short sale experience as painless as possible. I can't thank them enough!”  
  ~ John Kizla  
  We decided to purchase property on Kauai after debating for several years. Fortunately, we found Carol to help us. It was the easiest real estate purchase ever. She listened to our needs and found for us the perfect property with the most beautiful views right on the ocean. She is the best realtor! We felt like a family friend is helping you. She will definitely be the person we call when we sell or purchase additional real estate on Kauai.  
  ~ Tom and Cathy Hamm  
  My family and I purchased a condominium in December 2009. We were particularly impressed with the high degree of professionalism displayed by Carol. As we were making the purchase from the mainland, Carol went out of her way for us. She treated us as if we were a part of her family. In my overall experience buying real estate, I can say that I have never encountered a more thorough, honest and caring professional than Carol Skon. I cannot recommend her highly enough.  
  ~ Carl Ward  
  We purchased our condo on the North Shore of Kaua'i. We often think about our good fortune in working with Carol Skon, our Realtor extraordinaire, who helped us find the perfect property. Carol impressed us with her knowledge and obvious enthusiasm for this beautiful part of the world. We also appreciated her great support throughout the purchase process. We have complete confidence in Carol, and recommend her highly.  
  ~ John & Brenda  
  My wife and I put our condo up for sale August 2006. We chose Carol because of her great personality, tremendous knowledge of Hawaii real estate, and her dedication to her clients. Well, we just sold it, given the slow market, and Carol did not disappoint us in our expectations. I would highly recommend Carol to anyone who asks and would use her in the future for any other real estate transactions. I know and have used other agents, but none compare to Carol.  
  ~ Ken and Sharon Buono  
  The day after I arrived on island Carol picked me up to take me Condo shopping. I went into escrow the next day. Carol made my transition from mainland to Kauai an easy one. She walked me through the whole thing as I am a first time buyer. I love my drive to work at the Anara Spa a the Grand Hyatt, and it's all thanks to Carol! If you need an excellent Realtor call Carol Skon, she will make you feel right at home. "Mahalo Nui Loa"  
  ~ Pakalana  
  My husband and I live on the mainland and were interested in purchasing an investment condo in Kauai. Carol helped us with many facets of the transaction; always with intelligence, market knowledge, and a much-appreciated sense of humor. What's more, Carol completely anticipated our needs and always went the extra mile for us. We look forward to working with Carol in the future. We only wish we could transplant her here to help us with our local real estate holdings!
