"We were referred to Katy by my real estate agent in Seattle, who used to run an office on Maui and without hesitation he recommended Katy. In our first conversation, it was very clear Katy was extremely knowledgeable of the market in Wailea and open to our thoughts regarding listing the property. The only reason we decided to sell was that we knew the market was hot, so we listed at what we felt was a pretty high price and Katy said "why not?" We received an offer that we countered very close to our original price, then the buyer again countered. Based upon Katy's advice we chose to pull our counter since we had 2 very strong buyers who still had not seen the property. This was fantastic advice and we entered into contract soon after. Katy's advice more than covered her commission. The easy thing for an agent to do is recommend we take the original counter, but Katy felt quite certain we could do better. She is honest, professional and she communicated with us every step of the way until today when we closed on the sale. I would absolutely work with Katy again and would not hesitate to refer her to others." - John Russell
"Having had Katy represent us a couple of times in the past, I chose her again to be our buyer's agent on a recent home purchase. And as always, she more than exceeded our expectations. Her guidance and expertise relieved us of many challenging decisions. We were delighted and blessed to have had Katy on our side. Her communication skills, professionalism, recommendations, passion, and expertise made the buying experience truly pleasant. Thank you, Katy, for being an amazing realtor!" - dgc4378
"Katy helped us find and buy our dream Maui condo in Kapalua. She helped us through the negotiation process and got us more than we'd hoped back. She also assembled a fantastic team of professionals to allow us to close on time, despite the hottest Maui market ever. She continues to answer questions and keep in touch. We're happy to recommend Katy to our friends." - jsimon7777
"We highly recommend Katy Foxwell to help you find your Maui home. She helped us find ours during a particularly challenging time. Due to COVID restrictions we relied on her to be our eyes and more while visiting properties using FaceTime, and communicating largely by e-mail and by phone. Even though the majority of our search was conducted remotely, she managed to effortlessly make our interactions as real and personal as possible.
Every step of the way we appreciated her organized and professional approach, and we were very impressed by how quickly she anticipated information we would need to make our decision, as well as helping us on the back-end of the purchase with information to help us set up our new home.
She is a Maui expert. From the beginning she provided us with relevant housing data to help guide our decision. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the Maui real estate market, and could quickly answer our questions.
Due to the great relationship Katy had with the seller’s agent, it was very easy to communicate with the previous owner when needed. This ease was due to Katy’s lovely personality, as well as the respect all participants have for her. And, most importantly we felt Katy was always representing us, with our needs front and center." - K Nutt, Kula
"Katy Foxwell is amazing! A true real estate professional and lovely person. Katy's knowledge, skill and professionalism ensured that the purchase of our home on Maui was as smooth and stress-free as possible. She is a delight to work with, making certain that we were informed and engaged during every single step of the complicated, remote, virtual and electronic home buying process that exists today." - jurbanzoo, Kihei
"Katy just helped us buy a vacation home last month! Katy was extremely organized, on top of all deadlines and had great negotiating skills! We would absolutely use her again as she made the buying process seamless and easy for us. She helped with every aspect of the buying process. She went above and beyond and we are so grateful:)" - A. Khai, Kaanapali
"So many beautiful things to say about Katy! While selling a home can be quite stressful, it is so important to have someone in your corner every step of the way. She was always delightful, always professional and always happy to answer every question I had. And if that wasn’t enough, Katy got us a full price cash buyer within 24 hours! It was a quick escrow which can be overwhelming with so many moving pieces, but with Katy it just meant we had multiple reasons to celebrate at each milestone. I loved hearing her excitement and feeling her ray-of-sunshine-energy all the way through closing and beyond. If you are buying, selling or just trying to figure out what to do, make Katy your one and only choice. She is cream of the crop and I will be forever grateful for everything she did for me and my family. I felt so supported and empowered having her by my side! Thank you Katy!! You are simply an iconic Realtor!!" - verticalblonde, Kihei, HI 96753
"We were fortunate enough to meet Katy on a whim that has turned into an amazing business relationship. Here on Maui it can be difficult to find motivated professionals. Katy has the market knowledge, ability and strong arm that you only find in real passionate individuals. We have bought multiple properties through Katy and she is also a delight to work with. In her words, ‘It try and make every client feel as if they are the only client I have.’’ Day or night she is the realtor that will get you your dream property. Highly recommend!" - cwkstewart, Haiku, Maui
"Katy is a consummate professional. Without Katy's assistance, guidance and knowledge we would not have been able to purchase our small slice of Maui paradise. This purchase was done remotely and if not for Katy this transaction would not have been possible. She provides the ultimate in real estate concierge service. Going above and beyond the home purchase. Without hesitation we would recommend Katy for any of your Maui real estate needs." - DH, Kula, Maui
"Katy Foxwell helped my find and purchase a high-end condominium at Makena Surf on the island of Maui, Hawaii. She was very patient with me as I looked for a condo, not knowing if I was actually going to purchase one. Once we found the one to purchase she went out of her way to make sure everything was in order. She helped me navigate through a difficult negotiation and a much more difficult close on the purchase. She always represented my best interests. She was absolutely responsible for a successful close, even when it looked like it might not happen. She stayed involved through property transfer and move-in. She helped identify contractors for needed work on the condo. Through this purchase process Katy showed real estate knowledge, responsiveness, tenacity, graciousness, helpfulness, loyalty, commitment and always a friendly smile! I would use Katy Foxwell again in a heartbeat. I now consider her a personal friend." - D. McVicker, Cannon Beach, Oregon
"Buying and selling real estate is one of the most important transactions you make - and having an experienced, professional, and knowledgeable realtor to represent you is paramount. We were very blessed and fortunate to have worked with Katy. She was excellent as our buyer's agent, and for that, she was chosen months later to assist in another transaction - the selling of our family home. Katy went above and beyond to ensure our peace of mind and stress-free experience from the contract stage to the closing of escrow. Our experience for both buying and selling was flawless in due to Katy's efforts. Her strong work ethic, excellent customer service, dependability, and mastery of the real estate market are her greatest attributes. She is truly the best in the business!" - D Cabanilla, San Francisco
"In over seven years of working with Katy, she has represented me in selling one property, and purchasing two other homes on Maui. Her professional and friendly qualities are unmatched within the real estate community here on island. I know numerous other realtors as friends and associates, but would never consider using anyone other than Katy as my real estate professional. She's, simply, the best!" - Robert DeVinck, Wailea, Maui (9/18)
"This is a review that just had to be written, about a realtor named Katy Foxwell, who is affiliated with The Wailea Group of Maui. Recent personal circumstances required a prompt re-location to Maui from our home on the Big Island. We knew where we wished to buy, but the time constraint and our lack of full familiarity with the area required that our agent be both knowledgeable and trustworthy. Fortunately, we were directed to Katy Foxwell. Rather than elaborate on individual details, allow me to simply state that in over 45 years of purchasing real estate for both individual and investment purposes, I have never before received such professional treatment. Katy's listening skills, coupled with her intuitive reading of client preferences, allowed her to narrow down the available properties and, thus, save all of us a significant amount of time and energy. Additionally, because of her outstanding reputation within the community, all ancillary support businesses and personnel (e.g. loan, escrow, inspections, etc) rallied to work with her to ensure a smooth and prompt closing (would you believe, just under 3 weeks!). And, we are even more delighted to report that Katy has gone above and beyond by guiding us to numerous services, medical personnel, community resources, etc., post-closing What more could any new transplant ask for? Katy is the only local realtor I would recommend to family and close friends, and if you are considering purchasing property on Maui, I would urge you to give her a call and arrange to meet with her." - Mark Schuster, Maui Resident as of August 2018
Canadian client Randy Seniuk commented, "I am just totally impressed with your business conduct and work ethic. Quite frankly, you appear to make international business seamless………you should be on my team!!"
"Katy started her career in Real Estate with our Windermere office in Wailea. Katy should be a model of how to start a career in Real Estate, she took it head on. She started in 2007, which we all know was one of the worst markets in our lifetime, and Katy has made it through, and is now prospering, with hard work and determination. While we no longer have an office on Maui, when someone needs a good agent in Wailea/Kihei, I will send them Katy's name, because I know that they will be taken of with her world class service." - Brad Knowles, Seattle, WA
“Katy, Thank you so much for great service in listing my Condo. You were the best. Having owned my own Real Estate Co. for many years it is always wonderful to find there are still Agents like you that go the extra mile to provide the very best service. I will recommend to any of my friends that are considering selling that they need look no further than you. Have a great and prosperous year. Many Thanks “ - Tom Hamilton, Spokane, WA
“Aloha Katy, Thank you so much for doing business with me. It was truly a joy and taught me a lot about my own personal business here in Washington. I hope to see you the next time we are in Hawaii. Thanks again!!” - Greg Markham, John L. Scott, Enumclaw, WA
“We had the best experience having Katy sell our Maui condo for us. Even though it was an emotional experience for us, she made us feel relaxed and confident throughout the process. She is the consummate professional and worked very hard for us in these trying economic times, keeping in contact with daily updates and progress reports. We wish should could represent us in every real estate transaction, we have total confidence in her and her abilities.” - Rod and Karen Harmes, Puyallup, WA
“In short you are great in every aspect of your RE work and its not possible to improve on your outstanding service.” - Jerrry and Michelle Rubin, Seattle, WA
"It has been great working with you as well – I really appreciated how readily available you always were on the phone to answer a multitude of questions. It did not feel like we were doing the transaction from a distance. Also, thank your mum for all the lovely baking; I think it may really have been her that clinched the deal!" - Jim and Elizabeth Gemmell, Alamo, CA
“Katy did an awesome job on the sale of our Maui Vista condo. She was by far the best realtor with whom my wife and I have ever worked. Many of Katy's characteristics really impressed us. First and foremost was her knowledge of the field of real estate. She knew all the answers to all of our questions. We were performing a 1031 exchange and she knew exactly how to handle the situation. Katy had excellent knowledge of the local Kihei real estate market and the factors effecting it in the current economy. Another item that made Katy stand out was her promptness. From our first call through closing of escrow, she always responded to our calls or emails in a quick manner. This meant alot to us as we had many aspects involved in our transaction. When issues came up, she was able to solve them in an efficient manner. Katy's marketing of the property was fantastic. She had pictures of our condo on the website the same day we signed our listing agreement. The advertising for the property was done through many avenues and proved to be very effective. Katy held numerous open houses which we believe were beneficial. We can't say enough great things about Katy and if we were ever to do another Maui real estate transaction, we would request Katy to be our real estate agent. Anyone who is able to have Katy Foxwell as their real estate agent is truly blessed.” - Gary and Julie Schenck, Sacramento, CA
"It is with great pleasure that I recommend Katy Foxwell's services. The first thing you will experience when you meet her is her lovely grace and elegance. That she is also a consummate professional will quickly be apparent. What I came to understand and appreciate most of all, however, is Katy's enormous spirit and heart, and that her first priority is to facilitate your best interests. And to that end, Katy works tirelessly on your behalf. My partner and I were first time buyers in Maui. Katy helped us navigate the intricacies of the condo market, scooting us around in her shockingly yellow car, presenting a fresh packet of beautifully organized materials each day, patiently following the twists and turns of our thinking and feelings along the way. It was quite a journey, which led to the successful purchase of our Maui dream home. Actually, our new condo is quite beyond what we dreamed we could get. We can hardly believe it! We are absolutely thrilled, and filled with gratitude and appreciation for the essential role that Katy played in this happy accomplishment." - Stefan Smith, San Francisco, CA
"Katy Foxwell simply is the most knowledgeable, responsive, and professional realtor we could have hoped for. We were living in Australia at the time we began our house hunting adventure and immediately found Katy to be very engaging and willing to help, even from abroad. We then had an opportunity to visit Maui for a very limited period of time. So we arranged to have a few days out together and when we arrived she had organized a number of viewings from Haiku to Napilli. We were new to the market and she helped guide us through with her local knowledge and experience. Once we had made a decision she was unstoppable. Her local experience helped us identify all of the inspectors, agents, and brokers required and she led us to closing in a very diligent and professional manner. We commented repeatedly through the process on how incredibly responsive she was. We didn’t know what to expect in buying a house from overseas, but Katy’s dedication to service proved that not only could it be done, but it could be done with Aloha! Thank you Katy Foxwell!!!" - Jim and Terri Hengesh, Napili, HI
“Katy was amazing in getting my condo sold and at the highest price anything had sold in that complex in probably three or four years. Had it not been for Katy I’d probably be going through a short sale process right now. She stayed on top of every step from the listing to closing! . I highly recommend Katy. Thanks so much Katy! Honestly, didn’t think you could keep surprising me with your amazing service but you do. Over and above and then some!!” - Kathleen Pierceall, Wailuku, HI
"Katy Foxwell was an absolute joy to work with. She made every step of selling our condo very easy. She is very trustworthy and demonstrates a high level of professionalism. Katy was recommended by a close friend of mine and I was very happy with everything she did for us. Katy Foxwell gets the job done!! She's fantastic!!" - Tiffany Garcia, Wailuku, Hawaii
"Our experience with Katy as our agent has spoiled us. We can't imagine ever working with another agent. We experienced having homes sold both on the mainland and Hawaii and never had the pleasure of dealing with a true professional real estate agent until now. Katy has far exceeded our expectations and went above and beyond the usual domain of a realtor. We give Katy our highest recommendation. Congratulations for selling our home in 5 days!" - The Korkes, North Carolina
"We recently bought a condo at Hono Kai through Katy. Our situation is a little unusual as we were on a cruise and Katy met us at the port and showed us condos while we were docked. We are from the mainland with limited knowledge of condos available on Maui. We told her what we were looking for and she showed us property that specifically met our needs. We actually got to sign a contract while we were still cruising around the islands! The success of buying a condo and following our dreams was due to Katy. She is very professional, knowledgeable and has excellent people skills. We are pleased to have her as our realtor." - The Lifsics, Tulsa, OK
"Over the past 20 years that I have been doing business in the real estate market as well as commercial and residential development, I have very seldom crossed paths with a Sales Agent who has the interpersonal skills combined with professionalism that Katy portrays. Katy has gone far beyond that which was expected during our search for a property in Maui and well after the deal was closed. Although we had only just met a few weeks prior to purchasing a condo in Kihei , I now consider her a valued business contact and a friend. I highly recommend Katy and The Wailea Group to anyone in the Maui real estate market." - Kent Delwisch, Smithers, BC
“I don’t know how we go so lucky as to have you as our real estate agent, the four of us have marveled at the stroke of very good luck several times. I don’t think we could have had a better person helping us out, you surpassed our expectations.” - Colin and Linda Downton, Vancouver, BC
