Read what others are saying about Patrick Franta.

Patrick is superb! I have worked with several other real estate brokers, both in Maui and Colorado, and Patrick is by far the best. He really knows Maui real estate. He is always professional, straightforward and candid in his assessments – informing you as to what you need to hear – not just what you want to hear. He is second to none with respect to his negotiation skills and truly works hard and efficiently to get the job done. His confidence in getting the deal done is well earned. He communicates extraordinarily well and is simply fun to work with.

Patrick helped us find and purchase a condo in Kihei. We had a fantastic experience with Patrick. His knowledge of the market helped us to locate the perfect condo. He then negotiated a great price, and followed that with excellent communication during the entire escrow process. It was a pleasure to work with him and we highly recommend him.

Patrick was very knowledgeable about places for sale and took his time to show me around and answer questions about the purchasing process. Even after closing he has been supportive with questions and concerns. I really like that he didn’t make me feel like a quick sale but treated me like family. Aloha and mahalo Patrick!

- Jennifer Chapman, Client

Patrick Franta was my real estate agent. He was very professional. I was a first time home buyer with no experience and had no clue about anything. Patrick sat me down, listed everything I needed to do, found a great mortgage broker for me, and he really listened to my needs and expectations. He constantly checked up on me to make sure I met my deadlines. Lastly, he was a great negotiator. Now I have the house of my dreams for a great price. Stoked. Thanks Patrick!

- Paul McCurdy, Client

Patrick is extremely personable and very professional. We were coming over from Oahu and Patrick picked us up at the airport in Maui and took us around for the day, showed us what was available in the neighborhood we wanted to live and at the price we told him we were prequalified for. Patrick really knows the island and found us a great home in a wonderful neighborhood. He did an outstanding job through the entire purchase from negotiating the price, to arranging the inspector right away, to meeting repair people and the walk thru (which he picked us up again). He was always quick in responding back to us with answers to any and all questions. We would use his services again in a heartbeat and gladly recommend him.

- Dan and Cindy Arana

Patrick is very knowledgeable with the Kihei, south Maui area and was always quick to respond either via email or phone. He listened to what we were looking for in a home and was very helpful throughout the closing process. He helped us find our dream home and we couldn’t be happier with our purchase.

Patrick Franta is the third Realtor on Maui that I have worked with in the last seven years all in pursuit of selling my two bedroom condominium. I live outside of Boston and at this point travel to Maui very infrequently having not been there since 2007. So I really needed to find a capable real estate agent that was a leader in the industry. That did not happen with the first two agencies that I contracted with to sell our unit. Let me include that I am a licensed active real estate broker in the state of Massachusetts and although I am not very knowledgeable about certain real estate laws in Hawaii, much of it is the same. Since I have been a licensed broker since 1976 I have worked with many real estate agents; many of whom are less than professional. However, I do not feel that way about Patrick Franta. From my first phone call to Patrick, I felt that he was putting every effort into selling my unit even though it was not going to be the highest priced property he had in his inventory. With other agents I was made to feel that because my unit did not crest the million dollar figure it would be put on the back burner. Patrick was as interested in selling my unit as he was his multi-million dollar properties. It took a few months to secure a buyer that was “ready, willing, and able” to buy the property but it closed a few days ago. I never felt like I went very long without an efficient answer to my questions or an update on showings with Patrick Readily available at all times. In closing, I would wholeheartedly recommend Patrick Franta to any person who is looking to buy or sell property on Maui.

Patrick Franta is a fantastic Realtor! He took the time to show me around and found the perfect condo for me in Kihei. He negotiated for me and got me a price I was more than happy with. Since it was my first home purchase, he went above and beyond the call of duty making certain that I understood exactly what was happening and what was expected from me in the procedure. It could not have gone smoother, and I was the proud owner of my own piece of paradise. I can’t thank Patrick enough for everything he did to help me!

We worked with Patrick for our vacation rental sales. We are on the mainland and he is in Maui… First I was a bit nervous about him living upcountry, but Patrick’s responsiveness really helped to fill that gap of distance (and time). He took care of all the necessary prep. for sale for us as well. I can say that he is a star in the Wailea real estate community and I would recommend him to anyone who want to buy and sell in Wailea any beyond.

- Hozumi Miyauchi

Patrick is a great resource. He has been able to meet my needs in finding property that meets my needs. He is knowledgable about the market, trends, pricing, and introducing me to properties that meet my wish list. He is also very helpful in highlighting rental trends and other benefits that I may not have been aware of.

- Tim Grey

Patrick is very knowledgeable and helpful. We had a few hiccups in our escrow process and he helped us get through them in time to close. Since we were from out of state, we completed the entire process over the phone and internet and were very successful.
