"After talking with Michelle, she totally took into consideration of what we were looking for in a home, and she actively searched for and found one perfect for us. She was also there for us whenever we needed her.
She thoroughly looked over all contracts, asking questions, getting answers, and making the purchase of our home as painless as possible. Couldn't ask for a better realtor.
Michelle conducted herself professionally, looking out for our needs, helping us through the entire process, beginning to end.
First time home buyer, and Michelle made our buying experience pleasant.
I would recommend Michelle to my friends and family because she will work above and beyond to ensure that you will find the home you are looking for. She will take care of all your needs and treat you with respect."

She was comforting and flexible. She knew what to say to keep us positive about the sale. We are truly grateful."

"Michelle Nouchi Ogata continuously kept us informed about prospective buyers and the progress of the sale of our condo. I always knew what was going on because she did an excellent job communicating with us every step of the way of the sale of our condo. She developed our trust through her hard work, commitment to the sale of our condo, and continuous communication, which were all vitally important to us, since we do not live in Hawaii. Whenever there were any setbacks, she was always very encouraging and confident that we would get our condo sold at the price we were seeking. I very much appreciated all that Michelle did to get our condo sold in a very timely manner. She is a consummate professional. I highly and enthusiastically recommend Michelle Nouchi Ogata."
Gordon Suzuki, South Pasadena, California (Seller)
"Michelle Nouchi Ogata is an excellent agent! We worked with her before when my wife and I bought our second Hawaii property and received excellent service. Compared to other agents we worked with, Michelle is by far the best agent we worked with. Michelle returned our emails, text and phone calls promptly. Michelle answered all our questions in a professional manner and continuously provided us with updates on the process of the sale of our property. Michelle always follows up on issues and concerns, even after the sale. Michelle always takes her time and not aggressive and try make a fast sale like a lot of sales agents. She puts herself in our position and provide us with options. Even though we live out of state, our sale of our property in Hawaii went smooth and fast, thanks to Michelle. Due to our great experience with Michelle, my wife and I highly recommend Michelle to our family, friends and potential sellers or buyers in real estate."
