What People Say About Tom Guthrie

Working with Tom Guthrie and his team was a great experience. Tom helped me as a first time buyer find and buy my first home on Maui. He consistently gave me insightful information that allowed me to make a very informed decision. After a few years, when I was considering selling my home, Tom once again provided helpful information to allow me to decide that it would be a good time to sell my condo. Since I was living on the mainland at the time, I needed additional assistance. He provided services over and above what one could have expected, which gave me such piece of mind. I would highly recommend Tom to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home.

The recent closing of escrow on our condominium at the Valley Isle Resort is the culmination of many years of dreaming and wishful thinking. We finally have our own piece of paradise. I want to thank you for your assistance throughout the process. I am quite familiar with real estate transactions in my part of the world. The Valley Isle purchase had several unique elements I would have struggled to understand and deal with on my own. Your knowledge of the property and the process proved invaluable to me. I particularly appreciated the numerous calls you made to make sure we had covered all the bases and to update us on the progress of the transaction. We were never left wondering about the status of anything. For all its complexity, the process was amazingly smooth, a fact that I attribute to you. I could not have asked for a better representative and look forward to a time when we might work together again.

Mahalo and Aloha.

David R. Roundtree, P.E.


Tom Guthrie embodies the ALOHA Spirit!!! It could be showing property after property, negotiating prices, following up on all of the little things that can creep up and stop the closing on a property. He is a part of the neighborhood, has pride of ownership there and wants you to be a part of the community as well. Thanks Tom...

As a long time resident of Maui, I have known both Tom and his wife for many years. Tom is very personable, down to earth, with a sense of integrity to match. Real Aloha!  My wife and I purchased a home a few years ago through Tom. His dedication to professionalism I found difficult to match. Tom was always there.

Tom, My Wife and I Thank You.

Aloha Pono, Mr. And Mrs. Carl J. Offenbach

Tom Guthrie has asked that I write a letter of recommendation based on our professional association over the past several years. I've found Mr. Guthrie to be honest and straightforward in his approach to work, business and family. He demonstrates a high degree of trustworthiness and carries out his obligations with vigor and resolve.

I have lived on Maui for the past 15 years and Tom has handled many of my real estate transactions and investments. His complete knowledge and vast experience of the Maui real estate market have provided me the ability to purchase commercial, residential, and resort real estate properties. Tom's professionalism, reputation, resourcefulness and ethical conduct are just some of the many reasons why he has my real estate business. You can always count on a very conscientious, reliable and dependable performance by Tommy.

In writing you this letter, I hope to persuade you on one thing: I have been very fortunate in my real estate transactions because of Tom and I can recommend with complete confidence a first-rate Realtor. I will be happy to provide additional comment or answer any questions you may have concerning Thomas S. Guthrie.

To Whom It May Concern:

We first met Tom Guthrie in 1985, when we purchased our first 'Home in Paradise'. Tom acted as our agent then, as he has in our four real estate transactions since. It was reassuring to have Tom acting for us, not only because of his extensive knowledge of the real estate market in Maui, but also for his personalized service and attentive care to every transaction. We always felt that he truly cared that we were totally satisfied and that we received the best 'deal' available.

We would highly recommend Tom to any prospective buyer, or seller. His service is not only 'excellent' and 'honest' but very 'personal' as well. We would rate him among the most competent and effective realtors in Maui.

Congratulations on a job well done! I don't know about you, but closings feel better to me than just about any other part of this business! We get to measure the value of our work with a paycheck, a just reward for a job well done.

Thank you for all your help and hard work on this transaction. I know this particular deal has not been easy for any of us, and I'm very glad we could finally bring it to a successful conclusion. I am aware that without your help, it would have been even tougher. It's always a pleasure to work with a professional such as yourself. You're very good at what you do, which certainly helps ensure a successful outcome. I trust you will have many successful dealings with my company in the future.

Thank you again for your professionalism.

Very truly yours,

Tom Guthrie is a Realtor you can swear by - rather than swear at.
He provided me services over and above all the other Realtors I've dealt with. Sure, he helped me find and buy the right house, at a price I could afford, in an area and neighborhood everyone would welcome. Lots of other Realtors could provide this service, but it was all the advisory counseling and suggestions that Tom provided, where he really excelled over all other Realtors. He was my financial counselor and provided me numerous financing options and strategies. He communicated regularly with me via E-Mail, voice-mail, and telephone calls.

I was in Colorado, and Tom previewed all the Maui homes that fit my life style and wallet, and then he showed me the best of the lot. I was able to select a home in one day as a result of his research work. After that, Tom worked on my behalf with the Builder and Listing Agent continuously through the process. I was separated by over 3000 miles from Maui, but Tom's diligence and communications shrunk this distance to zero.

Tom's reliability and thoroughness are his trademarks. He kept me fully informed, and through him, I never was unaware or surprised by any facet of this purchase. Tom proved to be my trusted agent and confidant. I will return to Tom for any real estate service I need in the future.

We had the privilege of working with Tom Guthrie on several occasions on different properties on Maui in recent years. We found him to be forthright and honest in all dealings at all times. We could not recommend a better person to do business with in Maui. We enjoyed the realtor-client relationship thoroughly and look forward to our next dealings with Tom.

Tom Guthrie sold a condo on Maui for us this year. He was very professional, followed through on every detail and kept us advised at all times on the progress of the sale. There is an old saying in the Title business - "He was with us from Hello to close of escrow"!
You can't go wrong with him.

Jim and Ann Owen

My experience with Tom Guthrie exceeded my expectations. Living on the main land, I received Tom's name through a mutual friend. After a brief introduction, we began communicating via fax, Email and phone. It wasn't long before tom knew exactly what I was looking for in Maui property.
I planned a visit to Maui, Tom prepared a detailed portfolio of properties to view and the rest is history. My wife and I bought a condo in Napili that week and has been one of the best decisions we have ever made.

Tom's professionalism, knowledge and advice guided us to our decision to buy. I now consider Tom a personal friend and would and have, highly recommend his services to anyone seeking to purchase a piece of paradise. Additionally, I would welcome contacts to further detail our experience.

Dear Mr. Guthrie,

It was indeed a pleasure having you to represent us in out home purchase in Lahaina. Your professional attitude and explanations of the real estate maze were greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much,

Clay Darrow

To Whom It May Concern:

We recently purchased a lot in Kaanapali Golf Estates through Tom Guthrie after knowing him and interacting with him for a couple of years. Tom is very straightforward guy, not pushy like some in the real estate trade, and he really listens. After showing us lots on a visit to Maui in 1997, Tom established what we were after and was able to show us properties that met our requirements on our next visit in 1999.

Tom provides excellent, personal, no nonsense service. Do yourself a favor and let him assist you with your next real estate transaction. You certainly could do worse….we doubt you could do better!


Michel and Mary Gerassimenko

As first time buyers, we were so happy to have Tom helping us through every step of the process. He made things easy to understand and his caring made us feel at ease. Tom's knowledge of the market on Maui is unsurpassed and his "Spirit of Aloha" truly shines through.
