What do Clients Say?

“Over the past several years our family has worked with Frank Schenk to identify and secure a property site for our home in Hawaii. Throughout the entirety of the process Frank’s professionalism, patience, and insights were unparalleled. Frank was able to look beyond the simplicity of our immediate desires and help us to acquire a property that met requirements that were yet to be realized. Yet, what truly sets Frank apart from other comparable agents is his personal investment in his clients, even after their real estate needs have been met. To this day, Frank continues to offer us invaluable advice and guidance, that has proved instrumental in the building and completion of our Hawaiian dream home.”

David and Kathleen Ryan

“We began our search for a home on the Big Island of Hawaii a couple of years ago. After meeting a few real estate agents, Frank Schenk stood out as the expert in the area. He understood our interest in purchasing a beautiful vacation home and also getting a fair value that would allow us to trade into a different home in the future should our needs change. We are very pleased with the negotiation skills of our agent and his understanding of the market. Frank was very accessible and ultimately negotiated a fantastic outcome and also provided helpful referrals to tradespeople and firms in the area that made our renovation much more efficient and cost effective. Frank is well known and respected as an expert in his trade and is friendly and fun to work with.”

Jeff Swickard

Ann Mather

“Working with Frank was a great experience! He showed a great deal of character and genuine interest in our needs. He was very knowledgeable about the specific market of our property and was able to grasp and help us achieve our goals. During these globally uncertain times he was thoughtful and a continuously solid resource for advice and information. He was pivotal in helping us navigate the sales process and nuances of the specific details of our particular resort community.”
