Tracy just helped us closed a purchase. He is responsive, knowledgeable and resourceful! He helped our shopping process as enjoyable as possible which was very important for us as our time spent on the island is always very compressed. He was instrumental in optimizing our best option given our budget by giving us good insights and suggestions. He is always very thorough and to the point to all the questions and concerns that were raised throughout the process. I would highly recommend Tracy as realtor for anyone who is looking for someone dependable and can do the job!

I've been a client of Tracy's since 2001 with several purchases and sales of real estate. He's always been an amazing realtor with a great understanding of the Honolulu market, good insights, and excellent and prompt communicator. But he really out did himself with my last condo sale in March 2018. He did a spectacular job of staging my rental property. When I saw the photos, it looked like they were photos from some home and design magazine. He went above and beyond by helping to get contractors to fix things needing repairs (and done at below market rates), getting the unit staged and ready for market quickly, and finding tenants to temporarily occupy the unit while it was being sold. There was another similar unit (with same floor plan) being sold a few floors up from me. But even though the price of the higher unit was similar, many prospective buyers were interested in my property more, which I credit to the staging. So in the end the buyer bought my unit, even though a higher unit was similarly priced. I highly recommend Tracy as a real estate broker. You will not be disappointed.

Tracy Yamato has been our realtor for approximately ten years now. He helped us purchase our first property in Oahu. He paved the way in establishing contacts starting from someone representing us in the offer to purchase, to mortgage companies, and last but not the least the rental agents. Presently, he helped us with selling our condo unit. He staged the entire unit, making it look really attractive to potential buyers. As a result, it was seen by a buyer who has been looking for a property for a couple of years. They were ecstatic that they have finally found a property that is in line with their expectations. We believe that it was Tracy 's planning and strategy that brought about this transaction. Once the offer was brought to our attention Tracy continued working hard thru the process until it reached its completion. We think Tracy to be a special realtor who would work with his clients above and beyond any regular responsibilities. In addition to the above mentioned transactions, he is now helping us purchase another condominium unit. As usual, he is looking after our interest. We would have missed a couple of steps, because the seller missed to inform us, if he was not as involved as usual. We believe he will see us thru the end of this purchase completely satisfied again. Mahalo Tracy for your endless help.

5/5 Stars

If you are looking for a real estate agent, Tracy Yamato is the one my wife and I would strongly recommend. We were first time home buyers and our knowledge on home buying was very minimal. We first met Tracy at an open house. He was very friendly and easy to talk to so we asked him if he could be our agent. We were glad that we asked him because he knows A LOT about this industry. He would always notify us on what's coming ahead and kept us on our toes on places we might be interested in. I mean, this guy doesn't know when to rest! That's how hard Tracy worked for us and he always went the extra mile. He was very easy to work with and continues to work with us even after we bought our home. I don't think there is a whole lot of people out there who would take the time like Tracy to make sure that we understand each step of the way because it can get pretty stressful with documents and information you are not familiar with. But, with Tracy's expertise and professionalism, our home buying process went really smoothly and we are really glad that we had the chance to work with him!

Tracy Yamato did a superb job with both selling my home and buying my new home. He made it stress free and seamless. His laid back demeanor made me feel at ease. Furthermore, with his twenty-five years of experience in the industry including his knowledge of the buying and selling market; keeping me updated on EVERY and ANY occurrences; and most of all being absolutely honest and "real" with me. I am forever grateful! Mahalo piha Tracy for a job well done! I will definitely remember your kindness and sincerity. I will also have my family and friends call you if they will be buying or selling their homes.

5/5 Stars

Tracy Yamato of Coldwell Banker is an outstanding Realtor in many ways. The purchase of a home is a multifaceted process that often a buyer does not fully anticipate until he/she is in the midst of it. What I really appreciated about Tracy is that from the very beginning to the very end he was with me every step of the way guiding me with his knowledge and supporting me with his attention and care. When I look back on the last 6 months, I do not think I would have been able to continue being a single parent, running my own professional practice, and doing a lot of volunteer work connected with my child’s activities, all while buying and moving into a new residence if Tracy had not been my realtor! Tracy has extensive market knowledge as the result of being a Realtor for 24 years and from performing many other roles that relate to real estate (project salesperson, investor, property manager, landlord). Not a day went by without Tracy giving me many options to consider buying, and when we did walkthroughs of the potential properties to buy he was quick to point out how each of them could be improved. When it was time to put in an offer to purchase a home in the condominium building that Tracy had originally recommended, Tracy worked hard to secure my home for me because another offer came in at the same time for the same dollar amount. The documents in connection with the purchase of a home are overwhelming, even for an attorney like me when I am trying to run my law practice. Tracy helped me through this onerous process by highlighting deadlines and documents that I had to pay attention to. Throughout the buying process, the moving process, and the settling in process, Tracy always responded to my calls and text messages immediately (or as soon as he was available if he was meeting with another client). As a family law attorney, I am used to being the professional who helps clients through rough times. Tracy really helped me to see from a client’s perspective how a conscientious, go the extra mile, approachable, and caring professional can make all the difference in what would otherwise be an overwhelming experience. I wholeheartedly recommend Tracy Yamato of Coldwell Banker to anyone who is considering buying or selling a home. Not only is Tracy Yamato of Coldwell Banker Pacific Properties the ultimate professional who you want on your side, but he is also a great friend!
