I have known Lila for years but was not aware she was a Realtor in Hawaii until recently. I casually mentioned to her at a dinner party that I was thinking of selling my house in Kailua and she was very prompt to follow up information and a quick market survey. Lila was always polite and not overwhelming with details. It took over a year to finally decide to list the property but Lila was supportive during the process and not at all “pushy” as sales people can be sometimes be. She is always professional, helpful and very knowledgeable. Lila always answers the phone or gets back to you immediately! She knows what needs to be done with the background paperwork (there is a lot of that) and does exactly as she says she will. In the end I was really happy I listed with her. She sold the house almost the same day we listed it but did not stop there. She completed the scheduled open house and, as I recall, we had about three or four back up offers. In the process she helped me greatly with staging the house using her own furniture, paintings, plants, chairs and couches. Highly recommended. Very professional. Always on the ball.

Another Satisfied Buyer!                                                                                                                                                                I couldn’t have been happier with Lila! She was awesome-bluntly honest yet super-friendly and patient with me, a first time home buyer! If I end up selling this property, or purchase another in Hawaii, I plan to have Lila assist me.  Sincerely, Sean

Best Kailua RealtorLila’s professionalism and wealth of real estate knowledge greatly reflects the successful experience I had with selling my home. All action items were completed on time. Appointments scheduled with potential buyers, appraiser, home inspector, etc. were scheduled with me and there were no surprises. With Lila’s keen insight, she was able to give me guidance on what to look for when reviewing and accepting an offer. When the buyers wanted to accelerate the closing date, Lila was proficient in getting the documentation in place and we closed a week earlier than scheduled. Lila made some minor changes to attract buyers to the home. For example, creating a sitting area outside where potted plants were kept and it worked like a charm! There were ties that I was stressed out with some of the idiosyncrasies of my home and she always gave me advice on how to deal with the issues which put me at ease. Lila had my best interest in mind and it is because of her that everything went smoothly and according to plan.  Aloha Laura

When we were researching agents in Hawaii, one of the key qualities we were looking for was the individuals character which represented a true “Love” for what that person was doing. Everything else was a secondary because we were living in Japan and we needed someone who could represent us. Prior to choosing Lila Marino-Camacho, we had already spoke with 7 other agents and none of them would engage in our requirements unless we were on the island. We did make arrangements to spend one week to look for homes and as short of a time that may be, an experienced, well versed and knowledgeable agent who knew the market, listened to our specific needs and worked within our budget. Lila was able to give us a little piece of Hawaii. Her risk in supporting us and working with us 19 hours ahead of Hawaii time, we were able to find our “DREAM” home, specifically in the area we wanted and was able to work with the sellers on a reasonable price, move-in date and minor repairs. Here keen objectivity and accomplished negotiation skills got us $70k under asking price. Her in depth knowledge of the area allowed us to move in a neighborhood we were used to. Her noteworthy experience in filling all the paperwork and working with our finance company proved paramount. We were able to move in within 30 days upon arrival which saved us huge out of pocket expenses. She truly is an exceptional individual.

Lila was thorough and showed professionalism through every interaction. We were selling our home while we were both off island, living on the mainland and traveling separately for work. There were a million moving parts! Lila managed all of the details, from helping us find stagers to move out cleaners and was with us as we signed the closing papers. She was with us touch up the paint as we were prepping the house for stagers. While the house was listed, she was even found sweeping and filling the pool. If she had any downfall, it might be being too helpful! As a team the listing looked beautiful and was in contract the first business day after open Sunday house. We were thrilled at how smoothly the process went and would use Lila again in a heart beat and heartily recommend her!  
Thank You! Ed & Colleen

Our agent, Lila Marino-Camacho, focussed on meeting our price, location, and size requests. With her experience we were shown a very complete selection of properties available. Lila’s knowledge of the market assisted us in weighing the pros and cons of each property. In the course of our one week vacation, with Lila’s professional guidance assisting us, we purchased a two bedroom condo in brand new, Ka Malanai in Kailua, exceeding our expectations! After returning to the mainland, communication with Lila was conducted in a timely and helpful manor by phone and email. In addition, her assistance in setting up new local services has been exceedingly helpful. We would happily refer others to Lila Marino-Camacho.  - Mahalo Penny & Phil

Lila ensured that the sale went smoothly and all time lines were met. In fact, we closed a week earlier than scheduled which made everyone very happy! Mahalo Laura!

Top Block Survey! HAPPY BUYERS :)
We’ve been so busy getting ready for our move we haven’t said thank youfor all your help. You were absolutely fantastic and made the whole process so easy for us. And thank you for the painter recommendation. We picked one from the list and they did a fabulous job. Not the greatest pic but I’ve included an ‘after’ shot below. We officially move in Friday. Thank you again! Jen & Bill

Top Block Survey Report: HAPPY SELLER :)
It was a pleasure working with Lila Marino. Lila’s compassionate nature and knowledge of real estate made the selling process so much easier than I had anticipated. Over the last year, I lost both my mother and sister to cancer and having to sell our family home after 47 years was another loss I loathed to bear. Lila was very understanding of that and she tried to shield me from unnecessary stressors. Well, my home sold fairly quickly and I found a new friend-for-life in Lila! We had so much fun working together and I hope to be working together with her again (as a home stager) on future real estate endeavors.

Lila (agent) and Kevin (lender) were awesome! Very challenging to buy a home with a military move from Japan with time zone difference, limited phone calls and mailing options, but they were flexible to my limitations and all worked out in the end! Mahalo Mary

Top Block Survey Says…Another Satisfied Client!
Realtor Lila Marino-Camacho made my home purchase and experience a very gratifying experience. I was totally pleased with her professionalism and her commitment to taking care of me! I appreciated the communication and total transparency during the process of the sale of the house. Lila went out of her way to be sure that I was legally protected and I assure you, I am very grateful. CB Pacific Properties is very lucky to have this realtor.

“Lila is the Best Kailua Realtor, thank you so much for helping us find our new home! We really appreciate your tireless efforts. The gift basket was very thoughtful and had a lot of things that we needed to get settled in. Thanks again!” C&B

“Lila helped us every step of the way. She made sure that everything went smoothly. She went out of her way to look into things that I didn’t understand. I’ve already recommended her to a friend. The next time I am in a position to buy a home, I will call Lila” BH

“Thank you Lila! You are the only realtor we would send people to if they are in need of assistance. We are really enjoying the house. We absolutely love it and we couldn’t have done it without you”! CM

“In reviewing the comparables that Lila had provided to us before offering on this property, we knew that the seller was asking too much. However when in negotiation, the seller was not flexible. Lila had suggested that if the appraisal came in lower than the asking price, we include in the contract to revisit the price and come to a new agreement with the seller at that time. We felt that she had our best interest in mind throughout the whole buying process!” B&W
