Get to know Karla Casey
I am the Broker in Charge of the List Sotheby's International Realty office located in Honolulu, Hawaii on the island of Oahu. Our real estate office is in the Hawaii Kai area (East Oahu). We predominately service the areas of Hawaii Kai, Diamond Head, Waikiki, all areas of Honolulu, Kaneohe and Kailua. I also represent buyers and sellers on the island of Maui which was my home for many years. Prior to selling real estate, I freelanced as a paralegal and legal assistant in Southern California. I worked for attorneys that handled high profile real estate cases. I represent buyers and sellers in luxury homes, investments, second homes, first time homebuyers and even short sales. I have also bought and sold my own properties for investment purposes and primary residences so I have first hand knowledge of what my buyers and sellers personally experience during a transaction. I am very hands on and work with my clients through every aspect of the transactions - - from referring lenders to signing at escrow. We are a boutique style office (formally Casey & Associates) with a store front location in the Koko Marina Shopping Center in Honolulu, Hawaii on the island of Oahu.

Testimonials for Karla Casey
Mrs. Casey is a true professional; I was impressed with the enthusiasm she projected at selling an upside down mortgage lease hold property with more debt than the regular house. She showed extreme knowledge of the housing market and how to adapt her efforts into selling an unsellable house. She has my complete trust as an agent and I would recommend her services to anyone and everyone.
We did not know Karla Casey until I contacted her from the mainland to help us with the purchase of a short sale. We wanted somebody with experience and Karla went beyond the extra mile for us. For eight months, Karla took us by the hand and guided us through this process. Our transaction was extremely difficult and if it would not have been for her, we would have never gotten our beautiful home on the north shore, sitting on an acre lot with a fantastic ocean view. For any future real estate transaction we will only use Karla. Her experience, dedication and commitment to her clients is remarkable. She is the best, and anyone lucky enough to work with her is in good hands and should feel very fortunate. Thanks for making our dream a reality. We cannot tell you in words how grateful we are.
I live on the mainland. Carla handled everything for me. She is a true pro. She kept me in the loop and did what the other agents couldn't do for a year ---- she got the house sold for what I wanted in a couple of months.
My experience with Karla Casey was MORE than positive - it was enjoyable. She was there for me every step of the way through a difficult escrow with her knowledge and encouragement. I can't recommend her more highly!
I was impressed with Karla's attention to detail and follow-through. Karla made the process easy and uncomplicated even though we were in different time zones and thousands of miles apart. Karla is professional and her years of experience have proven to be very valuable...If you want someone to count on, I would highly recommend Karla.

Karla was recommended to us from a friend who was very happy with his house purchase in Honolulu, he said she was great. Having bought/sold over 15 homes over the years, I was a bit more apprehensive. WOW, I was knocked off my feet by her total package - experienced, very well versed in HI and the unique realty environment, and honest, on time and fun to work with. My wife and I started off looking at rentals, as we will only be here a few years. One day of looking convinced us we should buy vice rent. Karla was just as helpful when we were looking to rent, so motivation was actually helping Liz and I make the right choices for us. A whirlwind trip in Dec led us to several offers, and we finally ended up buying our great sky condo high above the harbor and city. The closing was difficult, but Karla went the extra miles needed to make sure we were well treated. She found us the bank and also an excellent handyman to do some remodeling before we moved into the home. She is the best realtor we have dealt with. Anyone lucky enough to get a referral to Karla will be writing a glowing report when they complete their purchase. We are happily unpacking, many thanks to Karla and her very helpful staff. When we sell in a few years, no doubt we will list with her and expect a fast sale at our price. Cash and Liz from Washington DC

We arrived new to Maui and walked into a local real estate agency and Karla was the only one who approached us, and actually after we had already walked out. She worked with us for many months, as during the hot market we didn't know whether to buy or build. After we decided to build she set us up with a great builder and actually help us design the house we still live in. We couldn't be more happy. Honesty is a big deal with us and we must say Karla is a person we trust with any real estate action we might take. We would highly recommend her for any real estate need you have in Hawaii.
Mahalo! Karla Casey is our number 1 pick for all of our Real Estate needs! She is the best agent we have ever worked with! Karla went out of her way to ensure our place sold within 120 days of being on the market and she added her personal touch by helping to maintain the place even after we left for the mainland. She also went out of her way to ensure we got all of our entitlements in our closing. We are potentially going to return to Hawaii to live and without a doubt will use Karla to purchase our second house. -The Roberts Family
We had a fantastic experience working with Karla! She's very professional and knowledgable and truly made our home buying experience the best it could be. She was patient when we didn't know what we were looking for and dedicated when we found the house we wanted to buy. Karla was always easy to get in touch with and kept us up to date on everything that was going on. I would highly recommend Karla Casey!! She is an exceptional realtor!!
We have purchased and sold two properties with Karla and she was a pleasure to work with. Her enthusiasm and willingness to take us all over the island to compare and contrast was exceptional. She was never impatient and always professional. I highly recommend Karla Casey as an outstanding Realtor. She will make the process enjoyable for you.
