WHY invest in hawaii?

Why is Hawaii real estate a good investment?

Hawaii is the one of the safest places to invest in real estate with some of the consistently highest appreciation rates.  While there are markets that offer better cash on cash returns, depending on the investment class, few produce the overall yield provided by Hawaii real estate.  Hawaii offers many types of investment property to fit just about every investor’s portfolio strategy.

Every investor has different goals for each investment.  Most focus primarily on minimizing risk while maximizing yield.  Some investors are very focused on specific goals such as appreciation, cash flow, safe haven for funds, tax efficiency, or user needs.  Hawaii is a diverse market with properties that can help every investor achieve their specific goals.

About me

Aloha!  I’m Tom Presler

I have been investing in properties since the late 90s and have been helping clients buy and sell properties on the island of Oahu since 2007.  My passion is to take the time to understand each client’s unique individual investment goals and help them find the right property to achieve those goals.  Whether that’s a single residential property, multi-family residential, or any type of commercial property, I can help you find the right one!  

While my Hawaii real estate license allows me to help clients with properties on any island, I feel strongly that it is in your best interest to work with an agent who lives and works on the island of interest.  I know Oahu and have a network or trusted professionals on other islands who are there to help my clients searching for properties in their area of expertise and provide the same level of service that my clients have come to expect from me.

If you have recently attended a seminar about flipping homes or investing with no money down, I am not the best agent to help you and this site will probably provide little value to you.  Please do feel free to take a look around for any information that may help you along your path.  I wish you all the best in achieving your real estate investment goals! 


Happy clients

I really can’t say enough about the incredible experience I had in listing and selling my home with Tom Presler. I’m very particular and it’s difficult for me to find trustworthy professionals that meet my standards. Tom exceeded my expectations in every case. His excellent communication and deep knowledge of his industry and the real estate market on Oahu, strong relationships with service providers, attention to detail and quality, super-hard work ethic, and empathy were more than I could have imagined. He is the consummate professional and I’m truly grateful that I met him and entrusted him with my transaction, I could not have asked for more. Besides that, he is a super-nice guy and wonderful person. Thank you so much to Tom for everything.”

Over the past 15 years, my wife and I have bought and sold many properties. From our first contact with Tom to the final closing, Tom was one of the best agents we have ever worked with. He lined up and showed us a number of properties that met our criteria, then helped talk through the various  pros and cons of each unit to narrow our choices to make a decision, and then went “above and beyond” to help review and point out important terms and conditions in all the homeowners documents – house rules, financial statements, buy-laws, etc. Throughout the process, Tom was very communicative and worked diligently to resolve any and all concerns to our satisfaction. We highly recommend him!”

Tom, was the ultimate professional. It is only the second home out of 10 where the commission was worth every penny. Cudos to Tom and the title company for the complete communication throughout the selling process.

“We used Tom twice, when we were first looking for a house in Kailua and used him again three years later when we moved back to the mainland and needed to sell the house. He was fantastic for both transactions. We have bought and sold many houses over the years due to career moves and Tom is by far  the best realtor we have ever worked with. He is a straight shooter, extremely professional at all times, totally responsive and always goes beyond expectations. Seven years later and we still compare every sales person we deal with to Tom, and no one can top him, he is simply the best.”
