06 What Our Clients Say

I was fortunate enough to work with Maxs from Taniguchi & Associates. As a local and Veteran who recently separated from the Army I had no knowledge in regards to purchasing a new home. I reached out to Maxs who was able to assist me with any questions I had with my VA loan. Maxs was very professional and knowledgeable to any questions I had as a first time home buyer. Him and his team was very patient with me and was always there to answer any of my questions. Maxs was very flexible with scheduling and always tried to match my schedule even if it was during the weekends. The main thing I was mostly satisfied with was the constant communication from not only Maxs but from his team who was always there to remind me about any documents that needed to be reviewed and signed. I was worried due to COVID restrictions there would be complications in regards to paperwork, but Taniguchi & Associates was able to mitigate that issue by sending all documents digitally. From start to finish I am completely satisfied with the service I received as well as the purchase I made. Just being able to work within my own time frame and was never pushed onto signing anything or being waited on showed his patience working with me. I only wish the best for Maxs and his team at Taniguchi & Associates. If you are a first time buyer I highly suggest giving Maxs a call for a conversation in regards to what you are looking for in Hawaii.

Erik, Danny, and their entire team are best in class. Everyone was extremely professional, responsive, and hardworking. Searching for a home to buy while needing to take out a conventional loan was a daunting task in this insane market, but the entire process couldn’t have gone more smoothly and in the end we were even able to close early!! I love my new home!!


It was such a pleasure working with Maxs from Taniguchi & Associates. From the start to the end of our home buying process, he was incredibly knowledgeable, diligent, patient, and kind. He always answered our many questions, kept us on top of every deadline, and expertly negotiated an amazing purchase price - below asking during a seller’s market! - within a very short period of time. I definitely recommend Maxs to anyone looking for a fantastic realtor who is wonderful to work with!


At the recommendation of a friend, I contacted Maxs Yoon as a VA and first time homebuyer with zero knowledge and only a goal to buy my first home. Maxs did an amazing job with educating me on the process of buying a home. Maxs was there by my side to guide and support me through every step of the way, from our first property viewing all the way until I was handed my keys. He even checks up on me weeks after closing day to make sure everything is well with me and my new home! Maxs is incredibly easy to work with. He was very flexible with my schedule and was able to work with me in the late evenings on weekdays and even on weekends. The team at Taniguchi&Associates are experts in their trade and made the home buying process on my end simple and efficient. As far as I was concerned, all I had to do was pick a home I liked and provide a few personal documents. T&A took care of everything else! Signing documents was easy because it was all done electronically. I was extremely satisfied with the service I was provided by the team at Taniguchi&Associates! It's no wonder that they are ranked one of, if not THE best, real estate agencies in Hawaii. Not only did they treat me as a valued customer, but I felt like I was a member of their family. I feel like I've made a longtime new friend. When it's time for me to purchase my next home, I will definitely be returning to T&A.


Erik Taniguchi and his team did an excellent job with selling my property. His advice to put our home on the market quickly rather than waiting, even in Covid times, resulted with the highest sold in the entire neighborhood. It was important to know that Erik negotiated for us and brought the best result possible. Their professional staging, photography, and marketing was impressive. Erik and his team kept us informed every step of the way. I highly recommend Erik Taniguchi at Taniguchi & Associates.


Erik and his team provided exemplary service from start to finish! We were nervous about selling during the pandemic, but from the get go Erik was confident that he and his team would be able to sell our condo. He got us an offer within 6 days of listing, we were able to close 12 days sooner than originally scheduled, and he and his team were there for us every step of the way for any questions/concerns we had. Taniguchi and Associates are very professional, resourceful, and genuinely care for their clients. Highly recommended for all your realty needs!


Maxs Yoon of Taniguchi and Associates is an OUTSTANDING Real Estate Agent. We honestly can't say enough about how helpful, reliable, kind, and thoughtful he was during our home buying process.

His team was also wonderful and we truly appreciate all of their help and guidance!
