It took a while for us to start this review because we know words won’t do Jessica justice. She is simply great at what she does. After too many years of waiting, we finally made the decision to move our family to Maui. We somehow came across Jessica’s information online after talking with several other realtors on Maui. After speaking with Jessica, we knew she was the right fit for us given her experience, positivity, and demeanor. Since our home search would be performed remotely, we were seeking someone to be honest with us and that would challenge us in the event we got tunnel-vision at any point in the buying process — someone that would keep it real and be our teammate rather than an impersonal, transactional agent. Jessica was the perfect fit. Our home search started remotely from the mainland in the midst of the crazy market in October of 2021. After flying out to Maui on short-notice on a weekend, Jessica spent several of her weekend days to bring us on neighborhood tours on Maui. While we were familiar with neighborhoods on Maui after visiting for many years, Jessica provided invaluable context that only a local would know for different neighborhoods and areas of the island that we just weren’t aware of. This helped provide clarity and a deeper understanding of listings when they popped up during our search. In November, our spirits were almost broken when a deal fell through on a property due to a seller’s behavior — nothing that was Jessica’s fault. Jessica helped us to remain positive through this “loss”. While we didn’t believe it when she said it, she insisted a better house for us would come. From November to January, Jessica drove to several other houses on our behalf, providing detailed and honest video tours at each property. Around this time, the Maui market exploded. Prices were increasing drastically week-to-week, and, as a kicker, interest rates increased. At the rate prices were increasing, we were fearful that we were almost priced out of Maui. Jessica helped to keep us grounded and talked us out of panic-offers on several houses that just weren’t the right fit. In January, Jessica promptly got into a home to tour it for us right when it hit the market. While it wasn’t what we were originally looking for, it unexpectedly fit all of our needs in a great neighborhood. With Jessica’s advice, we were able to place such competitive offer that the seller accepted it without reviewing any other offers. While we were impressed with Jessica before our offer was accepted, we were even more impressed with her through the escrow period. Our closing was performed in one month after contract date. In that one month, Jessica kept everything organized for us, suggested awesome inspectors and contractors and timely scheduled them, and ensured we were aware of each milestone to closing. We finally closed in February 2022! Jessica helped make our dream come true in an awesome home and even better neighborhood. After closing, Jessica still continued helping us, providing us with an amazing contact to help maintain our home. This long and detailed review was the only way we could explain how great Jessica is. We hope it illustrated her - passion to help you find your home - patience throughout your craziness - willingness to champion for you and invest in you - ability to truly understand your wants and needs and the ability to execute on them Her responsiveness, punctuality, and upbeat personality will make you feel like you’re her only clients. Do yourself a favor and work with Jessica Baker.

My husband and I had our honeymoon in Maui and fell in love with the island. :) When we decided to purchase our second home in Kihei, the decision was exciting but also overwhelming as we are new to the real estate market in Hawaii. With a lot to learn and many considerations, we knew we needed a strong leader to guide us through the process and best represent our interests. When I met Jessica, I knew instantly she was the perfect fit! Jessica made the home buying journey incredibly smooth and stress-free for us. She is extremely detail oriented and provided us with thorough explanations of each step in the process as well as a wealth of information about Maui home owners associations, unique Hawaiian real estate laws, differences in home buying on island vs. the mainland, and pros/cons about various locations, complexes, etc. In addition to her expertise, Jessica is a proactive and clear communicator. She is quick to respond and reach out to different parties in the transaction- making sure that documents and tasks are actioned on time and efficiently. If there was any issue, she would present us with multiple options explaining the benefits of each so that we could choose the best course of action. Jessica truly goes above and beyond expectations to deliver successful outcomes for her clients. We recommend her to anyone looking to sell or purchase their dream home in Maui and are so excited to have our little place in paradise! Mahalo Jessica~

Jessica is wonderful. I actually found her on Yelp and the great reviews about her were true and thensome. She was incredibly patient and helpful throughout the process. I wasn't quite sure what I wanted and I think even she was surprised by how detail-oriented I was, but she rolled with it every step of the way. She was extremely diligent about getting info about each property we considered and ensuring I was fully-informed about issues specific to that property (HOA/shoreline erosion/etc.). Jessica is definitely not a realtor who just tries to sell you the first thing that comes up...she is very intuitive and very focused on getting clients what they want even if it means a longer process (my process took about 6 months). Although her office is in Lahaina area and she specializes in West Maui (which is where I was looking and ultimately bought), I was amazed by her extensive knowledge of the Kihei/Wailea market too. Each time I would ask her about a new listing in that area, she immediately knew why it would or wouldn't work for me. I really wanted an oceanfront property with head-on ocean views from all rooms that was within 100 ft of the water and she found me a property that is just that. She also went way above and beyond even after we were in escrow by providing advice on things like furnishings, management companies, etc. Jessica is definitely one of the best realtors I have dealt with and I highly recommend her to anyone considering buying on Maui.

Jessica Baker was my family's realtor when we found our home. She made the process exciting, always answered our questions, and her communication style is perfect. I'm glad we chose Jessica to help us; we made a great choice. Anyone who chooses to work with Jessica will be completely satisfied. She has my recommendation!

David

Seller

I first met Jessica when she brought me a buyer for a property that I owned, but which was not on the market. Through no one's fault, that deal didn't close. She then approached me and said, "If you still want to sell your property, this what I think you should do..." That deal closed for 11% more than my previous realtor wanted to list the property. The fact that she sought me out for her buyer on a property that wasn't even listed and then sought out a buyer, who was not in the market looking, for my property indicates that she is creative, aggressive, determined, and knows how to put together and close a deal. In addition, she is exuberantly pleasant and easy to work with. Who could ask for more?
