I have bought and sold 15 houses in my life and I have never worked with a realtor as professional and skilled as Mike. It's the first time in my life I felt like my realtor was completely representing my interests. He showed me properties that matched my preferences and price range, advocated my interests, took care of every single detail all the way through closing and beyond. I arrived from the mainland on a Friday and by Monday we had made an offer on the perfect house. Within six weeks we closed. I could not have been happier.
Great experience. Mike was with me all the way. I was in Florida and the property was in Hawaii. Worked out fine. My offer was third in line for the condo but we prevailed and I was able to move from Florida to Big Island of Hawaii.
We really appreciated Mike’s professionalism and advice as we worked through the home buying process. He really knows the Hawaii Island market and helped find us the perfect home.
Mike Drutar is a very knowledgeable realtor that really knows the Big Island. We felt very comfortable listing our house with him and thought he did a through job helping to get it sold quickly. He has been a great resource as far as referring finance companies, explaining the strengths of each. We have referred a couple relatives and each purchased through Mike. You can't go wrong gaining a friend and realtor through Mike!

I found Mike while searching for property in Kona on the internet, as I was making a big move to the islands. Upon arriving to the mainland I met with Mike and arranged to preview the properties he had selected. I was pleasantly surprised by his professional manner and he was well prepared. (Unlike several of the other agents who tried secure my business relationship.) What truly impressed me about Mike was his understanding of my needs (great listener), his strong knowledge of the real estate market, and his negotiating skills. We quickly found the perfect home without touring properties that did not fit my needs. Additionally, he has a 24/7 "can do attitude" and
HE ANTICIPATES hurdles before they arise. My purchase went very smoothly and I attribute that to Mike. I was in the industry for over 20+ years myself, and I would highly recommend him for any real estate transaction.
Mike’s above and beyond agent representation included providing us his personal remote video tours of several candidate houses, identifying the strengths and weaknesses of each home. Later, when negotiations with the buyer proved somewhat complex, Mike assisted us by being there throughout the due diligence process and through closing. With Mike help’s we were able to narrow our choices to one, qualify and close on a lovely house we now call home. After closing and before we arrived in Hawaii, Mike provided essential services that smoothed the way for our move and transition into our new home.

Mike was incredibly helpful in the home buying process. He worked hand in hand with my loan officer to find the right residential property that would work with my kind of loan and also be a home that would suit my needs. He also did work behind the scenes to help get the purchase of my home approved in a timely manner. He was prompt to respond, he was honest in his feedback of what he liked and didn’t like when we visited properties, and was able to negotiate the purchase of a solid property for less than asking price. Today I’m very happy with my home in a highly desirable neighborhood that can grow with my ohana. Mahalo Mike!
Our experience with Mike has been outstanding. This is the second time we have worked with Mike in buying and selling homes. Mike gave us excellent advice throughout the process and tailored options to our needs and requests. He spent the necessary time to educate us and make sure that we understood our options and then he supported us in the decisions we made. He made sure we were not at risk, or were at least aware, of the potential risks based on our decisions. He leveraged his local knowledge and experience, which is extensive, to our benefit. I know Mike always worked for us. I would highly recommend him and if I ever need would use him again for a third go. Thank you Mike. You are terrific.

Mike did a great job helping me buy a condo in Kona, Hawaii. He was easy to work with and always gave me the information needed. Mike's best trait is he never tried to sell me on a property, he provided the information and let me make the decision. I highly recommend Mike as your realtor. When I jump back into the market, I look
forward to working with him.
Mike made the home buying process understandable and helped us navigate today’s complicated mortgage process. He worked well with the seller’s agent, finding win-win solutions each time small issues arose. Mike was immediately available any time that we needed him and showed incredible patience while he explained the process and gave us advice. We enjoyed working with Mike and will use him again. We highly recommend him!
