Working with Marco made selling our home such a breeze! I did my research and saw all the awesome reviews Marco received from his previous clients and had no doubt in my mind that I wanted him to be our realtor. We listed our home and two days later we got a full price offer!!!! Marco is very professional and made us locals feel comfortable through the whole selling process. It's obvious that he has many other clients he's working with at one time, but he was always there to answer our questions in a very quick manner! Choose Marco as your realtor and you will not regret it!!!!
I very much appreciated working with Marco A. Silva. I had the unfortunate task of selling my sister's home after her death but Marco was a real pleasure to work with! He understood completely what my expectations were and made the whole process go smoothly. He is extremely professional, pays great attention to detail, and had terrific follow-through. I never had to wait long for a response to my questions and emails. He was very respectful of what I was going through and was there to help and guide me throughout the process. Marco is outstanding and you will be very satisfied if you chose to work with him.
If you are looking for a realtor who is honest, knowledgable, and hard working beyond what would be considered "above and beyond", Marco Silva is the man you should contact for assistance. We say this without ANY hesitation or concern because we know that our experience with Marco was not unique to us and our home purchase, but is just how Mr. Silva conducts his business regardless of the circumstances. My wife and I completed our Kona home purchase in December of 2011, but the process began back in August when we started looking online at various properties on the Big Island that we might be interested in. We live on the mainland, and although we had a good understanding of the towns on Hawaii we were unfamiliar with specific neighborhoods and communities on the island. Luckily for us, Marco was the listing agent on a home that we were initially very interested in. My wife contacted Marco via email to inquire about the home, and to gather some information about other homes that we had some interest in. Right away, Marco took the time to find out who we were, what sorts of properties we were interested in, and why certain homes were appealing to us - all in an effort to help us find the right home for us. Leading up to our first visit to look at homes in and around Kona my wife had taken the time to put together a very extensive list of homes that we might be interested in. The list contained 30 to 40 homes along with questions and notes on each property. We sent the list off to Marco, and within a day or two he had responded with detailed information on EACH property that we had listed. The information that he provided was beyond helpful and detailed the sorts of information that we could not have come up with on our own or from the internet. His notes were VERY helpful to us in our information gathering, and it became clear right from the start that Marco was most interested in finding us the perfect home for us, and that making "just a sale" was the least of Marco's concerns. We ultimately narrowed our list down to about 25 homes that we were interested in visiting. We arranged with Marco for a quick 4 day trip to look at homes half expecting him to tell us that we needed to narrow our list down to a more reasonable number of homes to view. That was not the case, and Marco was happy to show us ALL of the houses that we wanted to see. Marco's knowledge of the not just the area and various neighborhoods, but of the ENTIRE home purchasing process was nothing short of outstanding. This is the 7th or 8th home that my wife and I have purchased over the last 20 years, and it was by far, the best experience that have ever had with a realtor. Not only did Marco do a fantastic job of showing us homes and making suggestions, but on the second to last day of our visit he said "you know, having gotten to know you two over the last couple of days I have a house that I think might be exactly what you are looking for" - to say that he was correct is putting it lightly. The home is what we can only describe as our "dream house" and we are still pinching ourselves over the fact that we now own it! Needless to say, purchasing, furnishing and setting up a home that is over 2,000 miles away from where we live was both stressful and difficult to accomplish. Marco Silva was nothing short of amazing at every step of the process. Issues with the sellers, the movers, utilities, and even the title company all came up during the process, and each time without ANY hesitation Marco would say - "I got it" and then he would do everything that he could to assist. When we say he went "above and beyond" in his service towards us that is NOT an exaggeration. He simply was, the best realtor that we have EVER had the pleasure of working with. There is not enough that we can say about the job that Marco Silva has done for us, and we would strongly recommend Marco to anyone and everyone that we can. In addition to being a great guy and a hard worker, Marco does his job with honesty and integrity and with his clients' best interest in mind. This is what makes Marco Silva the absolute, hands down, best agent that you can work with on the Big Island of Hawaii. Mahalo Marco!!
Marco is a great agent and a great person. We used him for the sale of our house in Kona, I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an agent who is on top of everything all the time.

We both appreciate Marco Silva's competence, professionalism, and responsiveness throughout the process of selling our Kona house. We also appreciate his abilities in negotiating with the buyers and their realtor, including helping us to procure a quite satisfactory price for the property. We would both highly recommend Marco to anyone else attempting to sell a house on the Big Island of Hawaii.

We chose to work with Marco Silva after spending many hours of research and talking with friends about who is the best realtor in Kona. We were buying a house in Kona but were living in Colorado. I highly recommend Marco to you -- he went well above and beyond the call of duty for us, did a lot of research and then sent us summarized lists of properties we might be interested in, and was very organized and could answer all of our questions while we were with him in person for the showings. It was obvious that he really knew the market and overall was just a fantastic person to work with. I have worked with about 20 different realtors over the years when I was buying or selling different properties, and Marco stands out as the best realtor I have ever worked with.

My husband and I lived in California when we contacted Marco to schedule a property showing. We immediately connected and started chatting about what my husband and myself wanted in a home. Once we arrived in Hawaii, Marco was at our disposal. He drove us to multiple properties, explaining neighborhoods and clueing us in to the ins and outs of Kona. He made us feel like we were his only clients and we were never a bother to him. We made an offer on a property and flew back to California. Well Marco didn't stop there, he called or texted almost daily. Kept us updated on everything. He would contact the mortgage company, arranged for ALL the inspections, made sure the gardner was still up keeping the property. This is an amazing man! I had never felt like I wasn't being taken care of and as much as I hate to say it, he held my hand throughout the whole process of buying in Hawaii. After the home closed, my mother n law flew out with me to help with unpacking and getting the house in order. I had sent out a box ahead of time so we would have at least air mattresses to sleep on until our furniture arrived. Well, the box didn't make it! Marco went to HIS home and brought us air mattresses , blankets, camping chairs for us to use until our things arrived. He is one of the nicest, sincere and caring person we have ever met. He's professional with a huge heart. Thank YOU Marco for helping making our dreams come true! We LOVE our Hawaii life and home! Sincerely, Debi C
We can’t say enough good things about Marco! We were initially interested in Marco because he has been named as a top-producer multiple times, but we soon discovered his many other qualities. He has a friendly, professionalism that is rare to find. He had an exact plan to attract a buyer for our home in a short period of time! Since we do not live on the island, Marco’s assistance was invaluable in helping us prepare our home to be sold. Not only is he well-connected and can arrange to have about anything done in a timely manner, but he himself wasn’t afraid to get his hands dirty. He even pulled weeds! Basically, he’s the best go-to guy to get the job done and always, always with a smile! Nothing was too much trouble or unreasonable – even right to the last minute when a whirlwind of things were happening. We’ve been involved in many prior real estate transactions, but without a doubt, Marco has been the best agent ever and an overall really great guy!
