Lee Met All Of Our Needs
The staff at Coldwell Banker Turtle Cove Realty and Lee met all of our needs and helped us when we were searching homes for sale on Kauai. From our initial meeting in her office, listening to our ideas in a Poipu vacation home. She arranged property showings and made it a fun two days of learning about the island and its neighborhoods and viewing beautiful homes. [caption id="attachment_866" align="alignnone" width="700"] Kiahuna Beach in Poipu[/caption] We looked at homes in our price range and a few that were 10-15% higher and lower to give us a perspective, and which helped us make the best choice for us. There are a surprising amount of choices when deciding upon which part of Kauai you want to call home. The appeal of the dynamic northshore with its epic scenery and long history of celebrity residents has a cache about the Hanalei area. However for us we chose a Poipu Beach vacation home, and here is why. It was important for us to select a property in the Visitor Designation Area (VDA) of the island. The appeal of short term renting the home while we were on the mainland was important. The great rental history of the home and the agency that was caring for the property helps us to offset costs. We are still several years from full time residency on the island. With a kid in college and the youngest in her last year of high school it was not practical for us. As Lee explained, the only two areas of the island have VDA status, Poipu and Princeville. Long term weather patterns played an important factor in our decision making. And the fact that Poipu is one of the sunniest area on Kauai was high on our list. We are active fifty somethings and sitting in the house on a rainy day was not how we envisioned life in Kauai. Let me wrap this up by strongly endorsing Lee Morey who has turned into a trusted friend, and if you are looking for homes for sale on Kuai giver her a call you will not regret it.

Thumbs up ! For Turtle Cove Realty
I'm very happy with how selling of my home turned out. Thumbs up! for Turtle Cove Realty and their staff. Lee's knowledge of the Kauai real estate market and her helpful suggestions on addressing maintenance issues were invaluable. And that was important. We have owned our home for 8 years and used it as a Poipu vacation rental when we were not on the island. Normal wear and tear needed to be taken care of before we put the home on the market. Lee knows what current buyers are looking for in a Poipu vacation rental, and we focussed on those areas to spruce up. We sold our home furnished which is unusual for the mainland but quite common here in the Poipu vacation rental market. I had so forgotten how much stuff we had accunmulated in 8 years. And honestly, at first I wanted to sell my furnishings online but Lee reasoned with me and she was correct. We honestly looked at the furnishings and put a value on them as Lee suggested. Lee reasoned that if we sold the house unfurnished it would be on the market longer and not bring as much money. A great number of homes and Poipu condos for sale are sold furnished and it is almost expected by buyers. And Lee was right. We sold the property at higher price that esily covered the cost of the furnishings that were used. I guesstimated that if the house sold 60 days faster it would easly have paid for the resale cost of the furnishings. I was happy. The new buyer was pleased. They honored all of my vacation rental bookings and Lee got me a 15% commission on all the rentals that I had reserved. It was a win win transaction, which are always pleasant. Happy buyer and a happy seller. Thumbs up! For Turtle Cove Realty and Lee Morey.

A Caring and Smart Real Estate Professional
We had very specific housing requirements for our family. So specific, in fact, we were told by several Realtors that what we wanted and needed was not available on Kauai, maybe Maui or Oahu but definitely not Kauai. Lee understood our needs she is a caring and smart real estate professional. Lee showed us properties, but she also listened, asked us some hard questions and picked up the gauntlet to put together a plan for our housing that met our family’s needs and exceeded our expectations. Her expertise in construction and design made it easy for us to find the right professionals with the skills and knowledge to overcome obstacles so we were able to make our Kauai dreams a reality and kept us within a reasonable budget. Without her in depth knowledge of services and skills available and how to get things done on Kauai we would have never been able to accomplish our goals. At first the real estate process can seem overwhelming. Even though we had been to Kauai many times as long term visitors, priorities change. The focus went from which beach or hiking trail shall we discover today to let’s learn about CZO’s (County Zoning Ordinances) when we made the decision to find a home and live here. Lee is superwoman ! She got us connected with individuals of integrity and motivation that made our move possible with minimum anxiety and no crisis . Since she was up to date on the County of Kauai’s “Hot Buttons” we avoided some issues that would have cost us time and money. Having a Realtor with Kauai experience and a working knowledge of how to get things done on Kauai made a difference in how quickly our family adjusted to our new home and were able to appreciate the beauty of Kauai. For our time and money there is only one Realtor to use on Kauai and that is Lee Morey at Coldwell Banker Turtle Cove Realty.
