“I did my homework when choosing Malia as our listing agent. We foreclosed on an investment property that was the source of structural issues among other problems with the property. It was a very high-end piece of property so I needed someone with the right reputation and that could help us get the property ready for sale without overdoing it. I also needed someone that would have a good reputation for development/redevelopment and that could handle helping the nightmare left behind by the previous owner. Understand that the house ended up with over a 500k in estimated structural repairs so this was not a minor situation. I’m also a real estate agent myself - but in the Denver Metro area - so I am very skeptical in general as most agents down here are very unimpressive professionals. Given that I saw that Malia represents many very expensive homes, an initial concern was whether she would care enough about my 3 million dollar deal to garner the attention it was going to require to have the best outcome. Would she have her assistants take care of me or would she roll up her sleeves as needed? The first good sign was when I called the number listed on Sotheby’s page, she answered immediately. We talked for probably 30 minutes right then and there. She also went to see the property just a few hours later…as in the same day. Talk about getting right on it. The adage “if you want a task done right, give a busy person the job” was true with Malia. She gets things done and will not leave you no matter how challenging the circumstance. She is an absolute workhorse. Her team is also wonderful so when they help in areas that make sense you are grateful to have them. Malia put in no less than a heroic effort on our behalf. If you are reading reviews and wondering if your property is right for Malia or not, I would tell you to ask her. She is very direct and honest. If she is not right or cannot take you on, she will connect you to the best that she knows and her standards are extremely high. I am looking forward to taking Malia out for a celebratory dinner to thank her for removing this challenge from my plate. I will refer anyone I know to her in the Vail Valley regardless of property location or price point as I know she can be trusted to treat them the way that they deserve. I will also contact her if I don’t know the best agent for any property I need to buy or sell in any location as I know she will find me the best for my situation and that they will care more about me due to her involvement. When I recently found out that Malia was in the top 100 real estate agents in the world for Sotheby’s International Realty, I wasn’t surprised at all. In a world that service often falls below expectations, Malia was an absolute star.”

“We discovered Malia on Zillow. She was everything that the other reviewers had promised and more. Malia helped us submit a competitive offer in a very difficult market. Malia's knowledge of the area and the current market conditions were very helpful when negotiating our offer. After closing on the property, she assisted us in completing necessary repairs with her trusted vendors. She and her assistants, Alex and Ilse, followed through on all of their promises. We would not hesitate to recommend Malia to our friends and family for a real estate transaction in the Vail Valley.”

“Malia’s professional website and national reputation sold our home. We were most impressed with her proactive approach to marketing and networking. Our out-of-state buyers wrote an offer, sight unseen, based on her excellent website. They were not disappointed when they first saw the property two weeks later. Malia and her team, Alex and Ilse, were tireless in communicating with all parties. Malia knows how to navigate to a successful close.”
