In 2013, 2014 and 2015 Larry was one of the Realtors featured in the Honolulu Magazine Best in Real Estate.
Larry was exceptional! He did a lot of work to get the best price for us. Thanks Larry!
As first time home buyers, we were very concerned about venturing into a territory that was very new to us. Larry understood that we were uncertain about many things and despite his very busy schedule, Larry took the time to sit down with us and explain market trends and tried to understand what our needs were.
From the first day, we knew that Larry was the right person for us. He has a genuine quality about him and you immediately feel that he truly cares about you. In the end, Larry found us a perfect place in our price range. We love it! We even asked for additional business cards because we want our friends to be in good hands too.
Larry was wonderful during our entire transaction. He was quick with follow-ups. He was very efficient and made sure we understood every part of the transaction.
I had pursued buying a property for many years before actually purchasing something. Larry stuck with me through it all and never gave up until I was happy and satisfied with what I bought.
The easiest sale transaction that we have experienced! Thank you Larry!
Larry was very understanding of our specific and unique needs spending long hours with one or both of us over a month's time. He was willing to come to our house in order for us to sign papers and always kept us informed of the status of our transaction. Larry is exceptionally committed to providing excellent care and service throughout the home buying process. Knowing this is our first home, during escrow and immediately after completing the transaction, Larry would call us to remind us to follow up on various things. It was in this way that above being a competent professional, Larry also acted as a friend, going beyond the requirements of his job.
Larry stayed ahead of the process, which allowed us to enter escrow prepared. He also was great at smoothing out some problems before they interfered with the loan. He's my brother but he has objectively given us outstanding service and is more knowledgeable than other realtors we have worked with.
There are no adjectives yet conceived that do Larry justice. Words like superlative" and "exemplary" come to mind, but they fall short of describing his outstanding service."
I want to thank Larry for going above and beyond in helping me sell this property. I really appreciate all his help and advice.
Very pleased of how fast our unit sold. Thanks!
Larry was always on the ball. He explained issues very well to me. He went beyond the call of duty and made the process so easy for me.

Larry often went beyond what was expected of an agent. I would highly recommend him to any and everyone.
Mr. Saito was the consummate professional from beginning to end. I thoroughly enjoyed working with him and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. He was extremely well-knowledgeable and made the entire experience a positive one by looking out for my best interest at all times.
I met Larry Saito at an open house in Hawaii Kai. We talked about homes in the neighborhood and it was very obvious that Larry was knowledgeable about the property values in the area, and had answers to questions. I was pleasantly impressed that he held an open house despite the fact that the owners had already received three offers; as he explained to me, he did not want to disappoint people who read the advertisement and wanted to see the home.
A few months later I decided to put my house on the market, and Larry Saito became the real estate agent. Larry prepared the market analysis of my home in purely research way, by evaluating homes in the neighborhood under various criteria. He did extensive interviews of other real estate agents and learned valuable details that helped him correctly price the house and explain the reasoning for the price he arrived to. Larry did great job marketing my home through advertising an hosting open houses. Because I was traveling when the house was on the market, Larry took great care of my home and its surroundings. After I returned from my trip, the house was in a perfect condition. We received an offer in a few days, and had an accepted contract in less than two weeks.
Larry was excellent during the process of satisfying the conditions of the contract, and made sure that everything was done in a timely manner. He gathered all the documents and signatures, and made sure that the deadlines were met. He took care of everything and made it very easy for me. He offered his help in so many ways that everything worked as a "Swiss watch." His approach is very professional and of a great human being. Larry Saito is a dream realtor.
We enjoyed working with Larry. He is very professional and knowledgeable. He was always on top of things. Larry is also a great guy and we always felt like he was looking out for our best interests.
Larry provided excellent and thorough service.
The service was thorough and efficient. The immediate response, professional knowledge and courteous communication with the Seller's agent enabled us to purchase the property at less than the asking price. There were other higher offers that immediately followed ours but Larry kept close contact with the Seller's agent and kept us informed all along. Without Larry's total attention and follow through, we may not have been able to purchase this property. He was straightforward with all the information we needed to know in setting our offering price. We feel totally trusting of Larry's knowledge and abilities. He is totally open and clear with information and opportunities. We will also refer Larry to anyone, including friends, relatives and strangers who are looking for property.
I would highly recommend Larry Saito again. He worked very hard and is a kind and patient person. He always kept me informed by email or phone. I say that he is the best agent and should be commended.

Larry kept on top of things & kept us informed. More important, he knows his stuff.
Larry was very accommodating and helpful and he was more than just our agent. He became our friend whom we trust and know we can count on to be there if we need help.
Larry gave me a realistic perspective of the real estate market and was able to sell my property within a month when two other Realtors were unable to sell the same property the previous six months.
Larry is so professional and experienced and knowledgeable. We have referred clients to him who are also pleased with the service.
Larry is a wonderful realtor who went beyond his duty to make sure that we were happy customers.

He always kept us informed of each and every phase, no matter how busy he was, which to us was of utmost important.

Larry is such a great person to know and work with. Larry follows up 100% of the time. He is very honest, humble and very knowledgable. I will highly recommend Larry to all of my friends looking to sell their properties
Larry Saito made my experience of buying a condominium a pleasant one. He asked a lot of questions to find out what I was looking for. He provided me with a lot of background information on the properties and the market. He did not waste my time looking at places that didn't fit my parameters and didn't get me to buy something I could not afford. He was sensitive to my needs. Larry was always willing to meet with an inspector, loan officer, etc. when my work schedule did not allow me to. He was on time and always prepared with all the information I needed. He was very trustworthy and fair. Even after the purchase of my condominium there was no change in service. He gave me the same excellent treatment and went over all the things I needed to know. He has all the qualities I would want in a professional person. I can truly say that HE GOES THE EXTRA MILE!
Larry's attention to detail was impeccable! His follow-up through finding a a home to closing was consistent and thorough. Larry was very patient and his experience in the real estate market made for a very smooth process in this very chaotic market. His professionalism and easy going demeanor was enjoyable in this normally stressful process of purchasing a home! I look forward to working with Larry in future real estate ventures.
Larry Saito was exceptional as my agent. He was in constant communication with me to keep me abreast on the status of the transaction. He explained so that I was aware of potential problem areas and provided excellent advise and communication which ultimately improved the sale. Most outstanding Realtor I have ever worked with!
Since returning to Hawaii in 1987, we have had the opportunity to work with several realtors, purchasing and selling properties in Kahala, St. Louis Heights and Waialae Iki. During our most recent purchase, we had the pleasure of working with Larry Saito. We found his service to be exceptional. He provided us with a wealth of information during our search for investment property. Our questions, whether a serious consideration or just a passing comment were investigated and answered immediately. Our purchases were not big ones, but Larry treated each of them as million dollar purchases. Checking and investigating the property, requesting repairs and reviewing documents were all done on his own initiative, with no requests on our part. It was as if he was purchasing the property for himself!
For Larry, it is part of his responsibility to his clients. While we have no complaints with any of the realtors that we have worked with in the past, we have enjoyed Larry's low key approach and dedication. He volunteers his opinion honestly and sincerely, backing it up with a wealth of information. We have learned to respect his advise. Larry Saito is a asset to his profession.
I want to thank you and express my sincere appreciation for selling dad's house. Your attention to detail is phenomenal, not to mention your tireless work ethic which made it so easy to put my trust in you from the get go. If there is anything that I can do for you, please do not hesitate to let me know. Thanks again for all that you have done for me.
Larry provided excellent service (above and beyond).
Appreciated Mr. Larry Saito's personalized service. His persistence & kindness & help was invaluable to me which made me to seek his services. I was well informed at all times.
Larry was professional and very prepared throughout. Through emails and phone he kept us up-to-date on the status and never let the momentum slow dow. Larry even drew appreciative comments from the buyer's realtors.
As first time buyers, Mr. Saito took us step by step through the buying process and made sure that we understood everything that was going on. He also made himself available to answer any questions that we had. Even after we closed on our condo, he still made himself available to answer our questions.
We are convinced that when selecting a realtor you need to be careful, because there are some good and some bad ones. We feel so fortunate to have found a great one who was able to get the job done!
I have experienced numerous real estate transactions in my career, however, our most recent real estate sale conducted by Mr. Larry Saito must rank as one of the most professionally accomplished of all that we have experienced. From our initial meeting to discuss the sale, through the normally tedious paperwork", to final closing of escrow, Mr. Saito left nothing to chance. His personal involvement, his clear concise explanations of real estate terms, his constant "feedback" to insure that we were updated on the latest developments surrounding the sale, his coordination with our property manager and the tenant, all contributed to what we considered to be an effortless sale on our part. Yet we fully know that a complex, detailed, and time-consuming event had transpired. Through his consistent professional performance, Mr. Saito earned our trust and respect. Two of the most important elements necessary to forge a solid client relationship."
Larry Saito was very thorough and patient throughout the entire process. Having worked with numerous realtors during the last decade, I consider myself duly qualified to state that Larry's professionalism surpassed what I consider standard care. Larry possesses high integrity, not just for a realtor, but for a person. I have utmost certainty that Larry genuinely cared about my satisfaction with my home purchase. I would recommend Larry as a realtor to any person in the market for a home on Oahu without reservation.
Larry made sure all items were followed up on and took initiative to make sure future deliverables were on schedule.
The experience we had in purchasing our first home was wonderful! The amount of money we spent was scary, but thanks to Larry's patience, knowledge and calming demeanor everything went well. Thank you Larry!
Larry was very professional on all of his task as a Realtor. Larry advised me before my listing started on how I should prepare the home and where I should remodel and spend my money so that I could possible get a bigger return. We were very pleased at the outcome of our sale and advise given throughout the sale process.
Larry was very helpful and a very excellent realtor. He would always keep me up to date on the transaction. I would refer my friends and family to him.
Larry Saito is a great Realtor! I have already referred him to friends that closed around the same time I did. Larry is very thorough, attentive and a very hard worker!!
Mr. Larry Saito is a classic example of the perfect Realtor. His dedication to providing his clients with all available information is a work of art. I will miss not hearing from him regularly.
I never understood why realtors get all those thousands of dollars to facilitate a sale, but Larry certainly worked for his commission. He made it so easy for us by taking total responsibility for everything that had to be done. Thanks to his experience, he set a goal to sell our house in 2 weeks and he did it!
Larry did an excellent job handling the sale of the house long distance and kept us informed. House sold quickly.
Larry did a great job! Very skilled professional. A credit to the profession.
We had been considering purchasing a home for some time and had consulted with Larry on the steps needed to make this happen. Larry walked us through all the phases of the home buying process. He really understood what was going on in the real estate market and assisted us in planning accordingly. Once we found our dream home, Larry's ability to engage with the selling realtor allowed us to submit a successful offer to get the home we wanted. My wife and I felt very comfortable with Larry and called him whenever we had any questions. He never made us feel like we were asking a "stupid" question and took the time to answer all of our questions. Larry was proactive, he saw the whole picture and seemed to be two steps ahead in completing everything we needed. Larry told us we were very fortunate in the way things fell into place for us. We agree, however things worked out so well because Larry took care of all the details. His excellent service and hard work allowed us to be lucky. We are truly grateful and thankful for the wonderful opportunity we had to work with him."

Larry Saito is an outstanding realtor who is committed to client satisfaction. He goes far beyond what is expected of a real estate agent. Larry carefully researched my property and did everything possible to market it so that it would sell quickly. Within 8 days, I received a full price offer. Throughout the process, Larry made certain I was always informed and everything went smoothly and was so very easy. Larry was extremely accessible and answered all questions, always showing much patience, kindness, caring and respect. I highly recommend Larry Saito to anyone in need of a realtor who prides himself in providing the highest level of customer service.
Larry was great! Extremely responsive.
Larry always went the extra mile to make sure everything went smoothly with our transaction. Larry is very thorough, efficient, compassionate and a real good realtor. Highly recommended to everyone.
Larry did an outstanding job throughout the whole transaction. Really made things easy.
Larry always performed his tasks on a timely basis. I never felt like I had to wait for him or that I had to follow up with him to see if he performed a task. This helped close the sale of my townhouse on a timely basis. He is efficient and organized. He had to go out of his way to prepare extra forms since one of the seller's lived out of town. He went out of his way to fax papers to the out of town seller. Larry is very pleasant to work with and explains issues to you in great detail. Because of his explanations you know exactly what is happening and you don't feel like you are being misled.
We have been looking for a home for over 3 years. Larry is very thorough and he was always patient with us. He also took the time to explain things to us. We really appreciate all his hard work.
Larry Saito is an outstanding realtor who always gives his 110% in to his work. I was amazed and so honored to have been represented by such a dedicated and hard working realtor.
Larry Saito treated us exceptionally well going the extra mile for us and putting the extra effort for us to find exactly what we wanted to buy. He didn't try to pressure us or persuade us to settle for something less. He took the time to explain when we didn't understand things, always polite and patient, no questions too stupid to ask or answer, which gave us peace of mind. Always the consummate gentleman and a truly honest and ethical businessman, my wife and I have grown use to the wonderful service and extraordinary effort Larry Saito does on our behalf. Always calm, soft spoken, never pushy, pressuring or stuffy.
The winning combination of Larry Saito's professional expertise and personal approach far exceeded our expectations. As first time home buyers, Larry proved to be the perfect realtor for us. He concisely and patiently walked us through each step of the home buying process. He always made himself available to quickly and thoroughly respond to our questions. Due to Larry's friendly and comfortable nature, we never felt rushed or pressured even after six months and many open houses. Larry is the kind of realtor that you want to proactively refer to your close friends and family.
Larry is a very conscientious person. He sincerely cares about finding you the "right' place and will work very hard at it. He is patient, considerate and thoughtful, and always responsive to inquiries and follow ups.
We are extremely pleased with the exceptional service Larry Saito has provided us with.
Mr. Saito was very attentive to our concerns and his advice and counsel was very realistic, informational and professional. He was available to answer any and every question that we had. We felt very confident about the process of selling our condo because of Larry's thoroughness in the details of the legal issues and aspects of physically taking the extra time in presenting the condo to prospective Buyers.
Larry guided us on how to improve the value of our home without making expensive and unnecessary improvements. He understood the market trends, let us know what to expect and provided information on recent comparables. Once we were ready to put our home on the market, he took it from there and made it as easy as selling a car. My wife was out of town during the entire transaction, but Larry guided us through the whole process using a power of attorney. I have a very busy schedule and I am usually difficult to reach. Larry always found a way to reach me with important information and made sure I got the information I needed. My wife and I were out of town when our home was put on the market. But when I returned the following week, Larry had reviewed and sorted through the seventeen offers and presented us with a prioritized list based on buyer qualifications and price. Larry and I really only met a few times in person, but he kept me up-to-date through the entire transaction and it felt like we were always in sync. As a result of Larry's experience, knowledge of the sales process and professionalism, we were able to close the sale within 30 days well above prevailing comparable sales.
Solid service. Larry provided prompt responses thorough explanations and is easy to approach to talk to. I'm very satisfied.
