A HUGE thank you to Lornalee Karvas!
Selling the family home that I grew up in was a difficult and bittersweet decision. I could not have done it without Lorna"s assistance. She walked me through every step of this overwhelming process and helped me so much along the way. She is very personable, knowledgeable and professional. I highly recommend Lornalee Karvas to anyone for their real estate needs.
Thank you, Lorna! I appreciate all that you've done!
Arabel was THE Best! She was very kind and extremely helpful! She made our real-estate purchase so smooth and easy. She was very responsive and she explained everything at each stage of the process. Arabel was willing to make trips out to properties, taking videos and pictures for us. It was easy to trust her. If you are looking to purchase a home in the Big Island, I would definitely recommend Arabel and her team
In all professions there are standouts above the rest. That is exactly my opinion of Arabel Camblor. The other testimonials confirm her exceptional abilities as a Realtor that are too numerous to list.
I called Arabel on one of her listings. I knew immediately after our conversation that she was stuck with me as a client. I emphasize that she honestly welcomed me and walked me through several properties. I told her my budget, needs and desires in the property I wanted. She gently guided me throughout the entire process with daily updates. Arabel made the entire process seem so easy and effortless. She is now my Realtor for life!

We thank Arabel so much
She is definitely a great realtor.
She has always given us advice precisely to sell our house.
Her way to stage our house was amazing, so sophisticated. It was a magic to us as she made our house (that looked just common house)looked like a model house.
Selling a house and finding a new home at the same time is quite hard, but she worked so hard for us and thinks best way to us.
If you are looking for a great realtor, Arabel is the right person for you!

Need help with Real Estate in Hawaii? Must see Arabel Camblor!!
From the very beginning of working with Arabel, it was apparent why she was chosen for the prestigious "HAWAII State Realtor of the year award". Being first time home sellers(my wife and I), and not knowing how to properly sell our home, Arabel took the time to patiently guide us through the selling process.
Even though we had a "fixer upper" home to sell, Arabel always made us feel like we had a million dollar property. We were very impressed with her thoroughness, understanding of the local market, and totally awesome advertising.
We believe, Arabel helped us get the very most for our house, in a time frame that worked for us. You will always be our #1 realtor!! Thank you soooo much Arabel!!
"Several years ago I had a local agent attempt to sell my mother's home in Hilo. Unfortunately, after a year on the market and no activity, the home was taken off the market.
Subsequently, I decided to try to sell again and was extremely fortunate to be referred to Arabel Camblor. Arabel has been an amazing and extremely knowledgeable real estate agent.
Her expertise and professionalism surpassed my expectations of a local agent. She advised me on the price point at which the home would sell and was right on the mark! We received an offer within two weeks on the market and were so happy that escrow closed on time, despite the Covid 19 Pandemic!
Thank you Arabel for being a super agent. I truly appreciate all that you did to make this sale stress free, and a pleasant experience."

"'Thank you' seems so inadequate to express our gratitude for all your assistance with the purchase of our “dream come true”. We appreciated your professionalism as evidenced by your expertise, efficiency, knowledge and organization. Moreover, we were grateful for your heart of service as witnessed in your helpfulness, availability, and the personal accommodations you made on behalf of your clients. You were truly a God send as you patiently guided and supported us through this exciting but anxious process! Thank you again for being an essential part of our dream come true. You are a dream maker!"
Lucia & Larry
Thank you again for all the hard work and professionalism that brought us to this point of the final sale of the home. As you know there are so many emotional challenges that come up in the process of relocating and transitioning and your calm presence was so helpful to me through it all.
Mahalo nui loa and best wishes as you continue helping families find themselves there in Hilo.
Lucia & Larry"

"My husband and I have bought and sold almost 20 houses over the years, as investments and personal use. The one constant through all of these real estate transactions is the importance, of a good real estate agent. A good agent can make or break any deal; they can make the transaction be either a joy, or a trial from which you hope you survive still sane.
Arabel Camblor I would say is the best real estate agent we have ever used, in all of our 20 transactions. Sadly Arabel was only our realtor for two of these transactions; when we bought our land 7 years ago, and recently when we sold our house. 7 years ago, Arabel drove us around miles and miles of East Hawaii real estate until we finally found the perfect piece of land to build on. Recently we sold that house, and that sale went so smoothly and easily, we hardly had to think of anything because Arabel was doing all of the thinking and business part. She kept us on track with inspections, deadlines, signings, etc. Due to her vast experience in the area she was able to recommend contractors and anyone needed to make things easier and more expedient.
More importantly, it seemed like every time we communicated with Arabel, I could feel a smile on her face, she seems to truly enjoy what she does, and it shows through. I almost wish I was going to be involved in another real estate transaction (not going to happen) so I could work with her again.
If you are looking for a real estate agent, go with Arabel, I cannot say enough great things about her. She is savvy, knowledgeable, and dedicated."
"Arabel Camblor was a pleasure to work with during the sale of my home. I was traveling abroad during the entire process and had great peace of mind knowing she was at the helm. She is very professional, personable, and remained calm and effective during the numerous curve balls that came our way during the unexpectedly prolonged process. She communicated with me by providing regular updates and also laid out strategic options in a clear and unbiased manner. I highly recommend her services! The saga is officially over! Doing cartwheels."
As a first time property buyer, I had no idea what to expect. Honestly, the entire process seemed extremely cumbersome. Arabel helped to ensure that we understood the process and reviewed each document in detail. Arabel was always responsive and willing to answer our questions. We are grateful to have found such a wonderful realtor and friend!
Dean & Rose
Words can’t express how grateful we are for Lornalee Karvas. Lorna was there for us every single step of the selling process. Being from O’ahu, we weren’t able to check on things so Lorna took care of a lot of things for us. Selling our mother’s home had been emotional and stressful for our family. Lorna's calm and positive outlook made all the difference. She always went beyond the call of duty. Lorna is knowledgeable, professional, and hardworking. We couldn’t have done it without Lorna! We will always be grateful!
Dwight & Patricia
"Dwight and I are very grateful to you for the personalized attention you gave us as we listed our home for sale.
From the first contact we made with you, you started working on our behalf, without making false promises. Before we even signed a listing agreement, you toured our home, made expert suggestions, and arranged for a terrific home stager to work with us. The actual listing was an impressive process of making a marketing plan, collecting necessary documents, photographing and filming, and preparing us for house showings. You gave us the incentive to work hard doing our part to prepare the home.
When the listing went active we had a sales contract in five days! You continued to be proactive on our behalf right up to the closing day.
At the beginning you stated your ethics and your way of doing business, and we saw your principles in practice throughout. Thank you for the entire experience. You are welcome to use this communication all or in part as a testimonial from grateful clients.
With much aloha, Dwight and Patricia Dow."
"I want to put into writing how much my Mother, Linda, Connie, Scott and I appreciate not only your assisting us with the sale of my Mother’s Hilo condo unit but with your really listening to what we wanted and needed for that to come about. We were impressed with how you always kept us informed about each and every detail from the smallest to the largest and helped us see all sides so we could always make an informed decision. We all felt as the sellers, even though there was the back up offer at a slightly greater amount we really did not want to wait for someone else’s agenda to accomplish what we all wanted and that was a clean and expedient sale of the property. We all wanted to express our heartfelt thanks to you."
"Day of closing of the sale of my mother's home. Bitter sweet day.
I can't begin to express my most sincere thanks and respect for Arabel for all her help and guidance through this experience. This is the first home that I have sold (or purchased) and it was a learning experience. Arabel always kept me informed on the updates, gave me great advice to improve my home, and most especially was a dear friend through this whole process. She was a close friend of my Mom's and truly honored her through this process. For that, I am truly grateful."
Ebra & Joey
"We were referred to Arabel Camblor because we were looking to purchase our first home. Arabel helped us close on a home that matched the needs for our family of 5 with room to grow! We purchased a 4 bedroom 2.5 bath home on a one-acre lot in Kea’au. We especially appreciated Arabel’s active listening skills, attention to fine details, and always keeping our “must have” and “wish list” in mind when scheduling appointments. We found our experience with Arabel superb!! We would recommend Arabel Camblor to others who are looking for a realtor who puts client’s needs, finances, and requests at the forefront of their home purchase!"
John & Pat
"We were looking at 2 or 3 real estate agencies, trying to make a decision as who to work with. We decided that the key to the decision had to be the realtor we were matched up with. We were matched up with Arabel. Our initial contacts with her by e-mail and telephone were favorable enough for us. As we actually started to work with Arabel, we realized what a gem she is. When we returned from the Big Island, we felt we had two solid prospects, both washed out. Arabel found us another choice property, and, through photos and a video, made us feel comfortable in making a major purchase without ever seeing the property of the exact area it was in."
Jessica & George
"You have done a wonderful job helping us to get started on our way to a new life!"
Jeanette & Kathy
"Jeanette and I would like to send off a quick note to say how wonderful Arabel has been with our land purchase. We are finally closing after 1 year of surveying, lawyers and other real estate agents. Through the whole time, Arabel has always been cheerful and helpful, never losing her cool. We are business people and itís very nice to work with someone as professional as Arabel. Too many good things go un-noticed. This one hasn't!"
Happy Sellers in Michigan

"Just wanted to thank you for all your efforts in finding us the perfect house! You really went above and beyond. It was a great feeling to be able to count on you! Steve and I are very happy in our new home."
Walt & Linda
"Thank you so much for all of your assistance in finding this property. We very much appreciated your straight forward, honest manner. So many Realtors use high pressure and dishonest tactics that we found your approach very refreshing."
Bonnie & Mike
"We so appreciated the time you spent with us, catering to our every crazy whim!"
Charles & Margaret
"We were looking for a property with specific features and Arabel made sure we didn't waste any time looking at properties that didn't meet our requirements. She stuck with us until we found exactly what we were looking for. She helped us all the way through to the end, making sure all the details were in place to make the closing problem-free. The level of service she provided was unbelievable."
