First time home buyer here. So green to the process I didn't even know any lingo or mortgage terms or anything. From day one I have never felt more comfortable as I was in Chris's hands. I had absolutely no stress during the whole process because if a problem arose, Chris would take care of it and only then would he inform me of the hiccup but then a second later let me know he handled it. He even recommended an amazing mortgage broker who worked just a smoothly as Chris. Amazing team the two of them make! When I'm ready to buy another house, I'll only be contacting Chris! WE made an offer in October and are now moving in in January... so streamlined and stress-free. Beyond blessed and so excited for this next chapter and thanks, not just in part, but by a whole lot to Chris!by Amber B.
My wife and I will only work with Chris from now on. After a few home-buying headaches and a serious disappointment we randomly met Chris at an open house on Maui’s north shore. He immediately struck us as someone who was knowledgeable about the island and land use, etc. but more than that he was honest and easy to talk to. You can’t write a believable review with only positives but that’s the way this one is going to be. We looked at 4-5 properties with Chris. We made offers on 2. Without him we might have made huge mistakes. We ended up getting exactly what we wanted, below asking, and that is entirely because our agent is not only good but has contacts island wide. We lucked out.by J & K
Christopher is very diligent and dedicated to helping people whether you are a seller or a buyer. He is easy going yet extremely reliable and trustworthy. As a seller, I was impressed with his artistic ability and business sense to bring right amount of resources into the presentations of the home. He doesn't take his vacation and leave his clients in the unknown hands and persistent in his endeavor, and positively goal-oriented aspect is very honorable.by Kat C.
I have known Chris Barca for 16 years. I had him list my house in December 2016, and he knocked it out of the park. His knowledge of the market and ability to back it up with proof to prospective buyers and their agents is what sold my house. The property had some challenges but Chris knows real estate and provided a stress free experience. I'm listing a second property with him. I won't use anyone else. Fair, honest & reliable.by Chris C.
You absolutely want Chris on your team. He will hustle to find your dream home, and make it happen how you want, not according to any agenda of his own. Chris helped my girlfriend and I land our first home. I cannot sing his praises enough. He was always on top of the next step in the process, explained things simply and accurately, and more than anything, had our backs. He made us feel important because we were to him. The real estate industry has gotten a bad name with sleazy, salesy realtors. Chris is the antithesis to this stereotype and puts honesty, hard work, and hustle back in the game. Thanks for all you've done and will continue to do for us, Chris!by Matt M.
Awesome. Diligent. Knowledgeable. He was more than a pleasure to work with. He helped us purchase income property and was instrumental in guiding us to our great final choice.by Bob C.
Chris was very thorough, he helped us sell our house in order to buy our dream home. When other's said it couldn't be done he did it!by Cathy T.
Christoper was instrumental with helping my family relocate to Hawaii from the mainland. He helped us in all aspects of our real estate process and eased our minds when we were dealing with what felt like so many moving pieces at one time. He truly went above and beyond to make sure we were secure and taken care of. We would HIGHLY recommend Chris for anything real estate related. Chris delivers professional real estate experience with heart, dedication, knowledge, compassion, and top negotiation skills with tact and charisma.by Kimberly K.
Can't imagine the home buying experience without Chris. Incredible knowledge of the market and all laws and regulations within. It was a great experience for a first time homebuyer.by Connor H.
Chris! We can't thank you enough for your constant professionalism , kindness & honesty throughout this transaction. You are great at what you do and we are so grateful as without you & Nancy our dream wouldn't have come true. Aloha Always!by Jessika G.
We decided to move to Maui on one of our vacations and got lucky meeting Lori! She and her family are from Maui so her knowledge of the island is priceless. Working with Lori from the mainland was easy, she was always available, and if busy, would always call back shortly. We have purchased 3 properties with her, including the one we now live in. I can't imagine a better real estate agent on the island, definitely not one as caring and willing to go above and beyond!by Tony D.
We enlisted the services of Lori Reeve to find a home in Maui for our move from the Mainland. We had numerous home buying/selling experiences previous to the Maui purchase, yet none were as worry free or well-coordinated as our home purchase experience with Lori. She kept us informed of the status of the process, communicated frequently and proactively ensured all needs were met toward our eventual on-time close on our retirement home in paradise. Professional, knowledgeable, capable and genuine succinctly describes our first-class realtor, Lori Reeve.by Debra S.
Chris is a fantastic realtor, he went above and beyond what we could have ever hoped for. We now have a realtor for life as well as a friend! I would absolutely recommend him to anybody seeking to purchase residential or commercial!"by CJ & Helen D.
When we were looking for a home on Maui, Chris Barca was referred to us by a dear friend. This beautiful human transformed our midwest life into a paradise in Hawaii. Talking to Chris was like talking to my best friend that understands my exact needs in purchasing a home. While we were trying so hard in Chicago to obtain a loan from Chase Bank that ended up leading nowhere (Chase dropped us after 2 moths of hard paper work) Chris referred us to Nancy from Sapphire Mortgage which was the final ingredient in our success. The entire way, Chris’ professionalism, along with him continually being present and on top of solving absolutely every obstacle, was what literally made our dreams come true. If we could make this review a video, you would see and feel the happiness in our eyes and hearts and know that Chris Barca contributed to putting it there. Our lives have changed and, on top of it, we made a friend for life!by Nick & Nico W.
Working with Chris was a wonderful experience. Being first time buyers, we didn’t know anything, which felt both scary and intimidating. At every turn I felt like we were in good hands; he was so knowledgeable about every aspect of the business, seemed to know everyone, and was ALWAYS available to answer any question, no matter how big or small, and never made us feel silly for expressing our concerns or lack of knowledge. He guided us along every step of the way and helped calm us during the parts of the process that felt more stressful. In the end we successfully signed for our first home at an incredible price and are so grateful to have had Chris as our realtor. I would highly recommend to anyone!by David & Ashley
I just purchased my first home and without Chris, I would be absolutely lost. I’m a nurse at the hospital and have been completely overwhelmed with the pandemic. Chris is top notch. He answered every question I had and explained things in a way that I would understand. He was so patient and understanding of my time and lack of knowledge. Chris definitely had my best interest at heart while looking at properties. The whole process was relatively smooth and anything but stressful because of Chris’s demeanor. I highly recommend having Chris as a realtor. Words won’t do justice for my appreciation for his help. I absolutely love my new home!by Lauren K.
Chris is more than a Real Estate Agent. He is taking his time to explain everything to you and always has your own best interests. I am French, first investment on Maui , couldn’t do it without all his advices! Highly recommended!by Charlotte T.
Chris was so awesome! He was attentive, easy to get ahold of, super helpful and made the sale so smooth. We weren’t on the island and he made us feel very comfortable buying without actually being there by FaceTiming to check places out.by Dawn & Sean H.
Can’t say enough good things about Chris. He will make your home buying/selling experience exceptional. He was available anytime we needed him and keeps you involved throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend him.by Josh & Koryna R.
Chris worked with us for months in a challenging market to help us find the best home for us. He was consistently on top of every detail from the initial offer, negotiations, and the minutiae of escrow. Chris always responds to questions in a timely and helpful manner. His breadth of knowledge regarding the unique local market was invaluable. It was clear that Chris is respected by other professionals in his field.by Jennifer L.
Christopher took all the stress out of selling our home while maximizing exposure and helping us to get top dollar. From the very first time we met with Christopher he came to the table with a vision for our property and matched it with the team and experience necessary to see it through seamlessly. No matter what issue, question, or concern came up along the way, Christopher was there by our side with an immediate answer or knew the right person to call. I wholeheartedly recommend Christopher!by Brian & Jen
Chris was easily one of the best real estate agents we've EVER worked with! So on top of things, beyond helpful, and just made the entire experience a blessing! We are so thankful for him!by Jeff & Alyssa
I consider myself extremely fortunate to have had Chris Barca as my agent while purchasing my first home. The guy is amazing: diligent, hardworking, patient, responsive and deeply kind. I was involved in a complicated transaction and to say that he went above and beyond the call of duty would be a vast understatement. He juggled all the moving parts while offering me clear expectations, solid guidance and all the handholding I needed to see me though to closing. He is really good at his job. I recommend him without reservation.by Paul S.
Chris is an amazing realtor. He helped us navigate both the sell of a home and the purchase of a condo with patience, knowledge and professionalism. We couldn't be happier and more thankful that we had Chris with us during this insane time. We HIGHLY recommend Chris and his team and will definitely be using their services again in the future. Thank you so much for everything!by Matt & Lauren L.
We have known Chris for over six years, and this is our second time working with him as buyers. He represented us for both transactions and we could not be happier with our decision to work with him. He is extremely responsive, knowledgeable about the current market, buying and selling process, and the local area. Furthermore, Chris has an excellent reputation on Maui, has a large network of people he works well with, and is able to seamlessly integrate these resources into a transaction in order to make sure it's executed flawlessly. During this transaction in particular, while the market is extremely competitive, Chris bent over backwards for us and made sure we not only closed on the home of our dreams but that each key piece was done on time and with an optimal outcome. It is likely that without Chris as our agent on this sale we would not have ended up as new owners of our place. He is the best, we would work with him time and time again, and recommend him to all.by Haley F.
His many years on island show through in all that he does. Chris knows the island. I mean he really knows the island. Not just the land but the people. He knows how unique each area is. He is a gifted observer who can match the person to the place. He is the the person I turn to each time a friend or family member is looking into property on Maui.by Karen C.
Chris Barca rewarded our trust with excellent service through every step of the process, from finding the right lender through closing. We were first-time home buyers and very worried about the insane market, but Chris was not only able to find us a home that exceeded our expectations, he also helped us negotiate a favorable price. I should also add that in addition to being knowledgeable, responsive, well-connected, empathetic, and determined, Chris has a fantastic team working behind him to move everything along in a timely and organized fashion. I cannot recommend him highly enough.by Chris & Brianna
Easily the best agent on Maui. Super easy to work with but can be a shark when needed. He helped us find our dream home and we love it! Very knowledgeable about Kula and Upcountry in particular, but helped us look all over the island. Couldn’t be happier.by Dr. & Mrs K.
Chris Barca never stopped working to help me sell my property and get me the best price. He is ambitious, reliable, and understands the market. He is not pushy or self-serving, being both friendly and professional, a very tough combination to find! My sale was a complicated one, and Chris always made me feel that my concerns and questions were valid and important to him. He is a self-motivated individual and certainly earns his commission. You will not regret selecting Chris Barca as your realtor.by Heidi J.
I would highly recommend Christopher. The housing market has been crazy lately with home values skyrocketing and inventory low. Christopher found me a needle in a haystack. I couldn't be happier with my condo. Christopher's local knowledge helped me find a perfect location and his real estate experience helped land a great deal. Stoked!by Mike K.
Chris is excellent at communicating and offers a wealth of knowledge about local climate, advice on potential issues or benefits of a property, schools, and more. Even after we closed, Chris has been ready and willing to help us with other resources such as recommending trusted contractors, lenders, etc. Chris is a long-time resident on Maui and his experience and personality shine.by Heather & Jeremy
We first met Chris Barca when we were buying our house, back in February of 2022; he was the seller's agent. Even though he was not our agent, my husband and I were both blown away by his knowledge, positive attitude and willingness to help. So blown away in fact, that when it came time to sell the same house a year later, there was no doubt that he was the right person to represent us! As stressful as can be to sell a house, Chris Barca made the whole process seamless, easy and stress free. His amazing knowledge of all real estate details and his connections to other agent's and escrow officers further made it an unforgettable experience! There are not enough amazing things to say about him, his dedication, his commitment nor his eagerness to assist! We will always be indebted to him and in our opinion, he is the ONLY agent on Maui to even consider to be your realtor! You will NOT regret it!by Carrie & Michael
Zeena and Chris are truly exceptional with their support throughout my vacation/short-term rental home purchase in Maui. Their deep expertise in the local market proved invaluable in locating the perfect property for me. Their keen awareness of geographical considerations ensured I steered clear of properties with potential risks, while their guidance provided invaluable insights at every turn. They are resourceful and well connected in the real estate service community, they went above and beyond to provide references and resources for me. Their proactive approach, coupled with consistent and effective communication, seamlessly connected all parties involved throughout the process. I greatly appreciate their diligence in adhering to the various steps and their dedication to maintaining open channels of communication. Their skillful negotiation techniques were pivotal in helping me secure a fair purchase price while staying well within my budget. Their reliability and commitment to my best interests fostered a high level of trust. Zeena and Chris played an integral part in making my property purchase a successful and stress-free experience. Without reservation, I wholeheartedly recommend Zeena and Chris to anyone seeking a dedicated and knowledgeable team for their property purchase.by Carmen Y.
Consummate professional! What you hope your real estate agent will be like. Extreme attention to detail. Always two steps ahead of any issues or problems. Our property had access issues that required easements, and negotiations with title company and lenders. Chris was relentless in resolving issues as they arose and bringing our sale to a successful completion.by Deb M.
When I moved to Maui, I worried that I wouldn't be able to find as good an agent as I left behind in California. Luckily for me, I found Chris. He is an amazing agent. Was in contact with me constantly and got all the showings I asked for arranged quickly. He didn't have an easy task. because our family of three wanted different things: a great garden and fruit trees, a gourmet kitchen, a pool. But he found us the perfect house and, because of his great relationships with other agents, he was able to get us in a few hours ahead of the open house and that made all the difference. We got the house, even with several competing offers coming in. Chris is super nice, but fiercely committed to getting his buyers the best price he can with the most favorable terms. We couldn't be happier.by Kathy F.
My wife and I have bought and sold many properties during our life and Christopher was by far the best real estate agent we have dealt with. His attention to detail was flawless which we feel allowed our deal to progress seamlessly to its completion. He also showed great compassion and kindness towards us during the selling process and made us feel that it was always about getting the result we wanted and not just getting the sale. Professionalism, expertise, kindness, great agent, would highly recommend Christopher.by Steve B.
My wife and I are so grateful to have found Christopher Barca at Compass Real Estate. In the process of getting our lending pre-qualified with Nancy Bayron (who is also amazing) at Sapphire Mortgage, she mentioned how great her personal home buying and selling experiences were with Chris. I asked for his contact info and we were under contract for our Maui home less than 3 weeks later. Chris has extensive knowledge and experience in real estate as well as the Maui market. Every step of the way, he was there to give his guidance and his seasoned perspective. Chris and his whole team at Compass were nothing short of stellar. They made the entire process as painless as possible and were an absolute pleasure to work with. Chris and his team truly care about their clients and go above and beyond to understand your needs. We are so thankful we had Chris on our side for exploring options and buying our home, but we’re even happier to now call him our friend. Chris is hands down the best real estate agent we’ve had and is just an awesome person… If you’re looking for a home or to purchase or sell any type of real estate in Hawaii, give him a call and I guarantee you will be happy that you did!by John & Cendi
