Marco is the most outstanding Realtor we have ever worked with. His knowledge, wisdom and integrity as a Realtor are above reproach. Marco’s marketing skills are amazing and extremely effective. He sold our home in 5 days! Working with Marco is very pleasant and enjoyable. He made the process very smooth. He is one of the most grounded and professional individuals we have ever known. If you are selling or buying a home on the Big Island of Hawaii, Marco is the man to call. We highly recommend his expert service!! Aloha, Wayne and Patti Holum

I couldn't be happier that we chose Marco to help us sell our condo. He is definitely the best agent I have ever worked with. He was amazingly knowledgeable about the area and the entire selling process, offering his skill, expertise, connections and experience every step of the way. Initially we had some trepidation about selling a property while we were off island, but Marco took care of everything with efficiency and mastery, staying in close contact with us and being immediately available if we had any questions. And he did it all with an attitude of warmth, calm and kindness, making a potentially stressful endeavor easy and enjoyable. We will definitely work with him again and I cant recommend him highly enough.
My wife and I wanted to purchase a vacation property on the Big Island. Being a real estate Broker myself, I knew the value of finding an honest and knowledgeable agent. I actually choose Marco because of the excellent reviews he had with previous clients and I wasn't disappointed. Marco was timely, responsive, and thorough, but most of all, a very hard working quality person. I was trying to complete an exchange and only had a week to negotiate and complete a sale. Needless to say, Marco was able to coordinate a very complicated transaction, with several moving parts, in a very short time frame. Bottom line, Marco was terrific, and I would highly recommend his services.
Used Marco to buy a property from CA without having to go to the Big Island. He was very helpful in determining areas and went way above and beyond in videoing and taking pictures. Fantastic service and I highly recommend him! We have now used Marco to buy 2 properties and I am even more impressed with him. I have worked with many agents over the years and all over the country, Marco is far and away the best I have ever worked with. He made buying a home remotely from the mainland a seamless process. I can't thank him enough. He is absolutely the man to use if you want to buy a home on the Big Island.
Marco helped us find our dream vacation home. He was able to understand what type of home we were looking for very quickly and showed us appropriate properties during our short visit. He was always in contact with us during every step of our transaction (even with a five hour time difference). He was very patient and helpful when our closing was unexpectedly delayed. We would highly recommend Marco to anyone looking for a very professional, friendly, trustworthy, and knowledgeable real estate agent.
We were in Big Island during the busiest time, Christmas and New Years week, when we finally decided to look at properties in the area. We had looked at properties online, and contacted four different listing agents. Despite the holidays, Marco responded to our email inquiries immediately, and more than 18 hours ahead of the next agent response. That was our first clue we wanted to work with Marco. After chatting over the phone, we met with him at his office. He showed us maps of the island, pictures of the properties we were interested in, some facts about the areas. Then he suggested that, given our requirements and wants, we should look at an area we had previously eliminated. He was right, as soon as we saw the area in person, we realized that is what we really wanted. We talked to the other agents too, and none was able to extrapolate what area we would like most from our list of requirements. Marco showed imagination and ability to hear what we said and translate it into the appropriate community. We negotiated and landed an offer before we left the island. The rest of the process:inspections, walk through, repairs required, etc was managed by Marco through email. Escrow services were efficient and everything went smoothly. This is the sixth property we have bought in our lifetime, and even though we were doing this long distance, it has progressed with the least hassle compared to past transactions. We would not hesitate to recommend Marco at all!
Marco Silva has a well respected reputation as a realtor throughout Kona. He exemplified professionalism and a vast knowledge of the Kona real estate market. He helped us find our dream home in Kona. We would definitely work with Marco again and highly recommend him to any future buyers/sellers.
Marco controlled the entire process from finding great properties to small details at closing. His local knowledge of real estate valuation and his contacts in the community were outstanding. I invest in Commercial and Residential Real Estate in Colorado, Arizona, Florida and New England. I have never worked with a better agent. Marco is exceptional!
