Having moved to Maui in 1989 during the second stage of development for Wailea, I envisioned being here a few years and moving on as I had enjoyed exploring new places. Thirty years later, I can’t imagine living anywhere else as the Maui lifestyle is captivating. I understand why Maui is No Ka Oi (the best).
A majority of my time here has been spent in the Hospitality Industry as a manager of Vacation Rental properties in Kihei, Kapalua, Kaanapali, Kona (Big Island) and for the last 15 years in Wailea. Through this experience, I have enjoyed being part of helping people achieve their dreams of owning a piece of Paradise.
My wife and I just purchased a home in Wailea and had a fantastic experience. We were married in Wailea and are absolutely drawn to the area. For fun, during our last trip to Maui in January 2019, we pulled up a house listing and thought let’s see what the housing market it like on Maui. We selected Matt Swartz to represent us and I have to say from our first meeting through the entire process, he was there to support us. As we live on the mainland, Matt was critical to our success. He has a very high level of service and excellent communication with all stakeholders. Additionally, he helped with every piece of the puzzle and has great contacts throughout the island. What started out as a dream for us, ended in the reality of owning a home on Maui and we owe it Matt. Now that we have closed on the property, we consider Matt a great friend. Purchase of Wailea Home $1.55M

I was pleased with the choice to use Matt Swartz for our recent condo sale at the Kihei Akahi. His marketing techniques involved utilizing high tech quality videos and pictures which led to a quick sale of a fully booked vacation rental unit. When access was required for inspections etc, he was considerate and courteous to the guests. Also, as we were unable to be on the island for the sale, Matt helped us greatly by packing up our belongings and putting them into storage. I would recommend Matt to anyone looking for a realtor.

We wanted to express our thanks to your friendly and professional service in the sale of our condo in Wailea. You really helped us get the best offer, doing multiple open houses along with great advertising. We would highly recommend you as a Realtor especially to off island owners. We were very appreciative of all of the ‘extras’ that you provided.

Matt did a great job in selling our rental condominium in Kihei quickly and at asking price. Everything from the initial discussion and working on the price and listing details through the marketing and offer to the final settlement went smoothly and Matt always kept us informed and consulted with us if he had any questions about our wishes. He is helpful, open, honest and efficient. We would highly recommend him for any real estate sale or purchase in South Maui, but his experience in the condo rental market makes him the obvious choice for those properties.
