Jon is extremely responsive and knowledgeable as a seller's agent. He was very helpful through my difficult transaction, making it very smooth and easing my stress along every step of the way.

He's a good guy and so helpful!! He's easy to contact and he's skilled with the details of making transactions happen for your easiest convenience in our modern lives. I would definitely work with Jon Mann on another project and I recommend him to anyone who needs a responsive and responsible Realtor. zuser20141004123436085
Jon Mann is the real deal. We knew that when moving to Hawaii, buying our first home would be a challenge. We're constantly hearing how the inventory is low, demand high, and you need an agent that's in the know. Well, Jon came highly recommended by our loan officer, we couldn't have landed a better agent! Knowledgeable. Jon took the time to listen to all of our needs, wants, and everything in between. He even listened to my gripes about my horrific commute to work. He then took what we were looking for, the areas, and pretty much gave us a comprehensive list for us to pick between. Jon sent us customized searches and properties as they came on the market daily. When we had questions, he had answers. If you want an agent that knows what he's talking about, then look no further. Patient. My husband and I told Jon we were not in a super hurry to buy, since we just moved and were staying with my sister. At the same time, we were absolutely ready to buy as soon as the right property came up. He took this into consideration, gave us the best possible listings that came up that met our needs, and was never ever pushy--very important. He was empathetic about our situation and we could genuinely feel that Jon wanted what was best for us. So rare!! Personable and Professional. Jon is warm, genuine, and the most professional agent we've worked with. Every meeting with Jon at the countless properties we went to were smooth, comfortable, and efficient. He's always on time! Such a plus! Jon also either knew all the areas so well or had done comprehensive research that each time we met with Jon there wasn't a minute wasted. If you're a busy person, then doing business with Jon assures that your time is always respected. He's always prepared with all the information about the property we were visiting, had information about the parking (parking in Hawaii! aaahhhhhh!!!), maintenance fees and what they include, age of the property, and the list goes on. It is guaranteed that Jon will do his research and due diligence and will be able to anticipate most of your questions. That's a solid agent. Plus, every single transaction with various contracts (contract, seller's disclosure, etc.) was completed seamlessly and Jon explained everything clearly so that "normal people" aka non industry people could understand. The same went for the signing and closing. If and when my husband and I are ready to sell/buy our second property, I have absolutely no doubt in my mind who I want on my side. Mahalo, Jon Mann for your professionalism and for always going above and beyond. mshannana

Jon diligently worked with us to meet our very specific requirements. His knowledge of the local market and clear explanations saved us a lot of time and effort in finding our dream home on Oahu. He carefully ensured we understood the legal and cultural requirements of buying in Hawaii and kept us completely informed throughout the process. We also appreciate his advice on submitting offers which resulted in us getting a very good deal. We highly recommend Jon when you are looking to buy or sell. RJB
Jon actually helped us buy our condo in Hawaii several years ago. When it came time for us to sell it, we called him again, mainly because we felt he knew us, knew our property and we had a previous good experience with him. Choosing him proved to be a great decision for us. We were able to get a cash offer in the first week of showing the property, and finished escrow in less than two weeks! John's knowledge, professional manner, good advise, and overall way he presents himself proved an asset to us again. John gives you all the facts, and helps you see all sides of the equation, in a simple direct manner. He made it a very easy, and seemless experience for us. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell in the state of Hawaii! gosmed
Jon helped my husband and I purchase our first home almost 10 years ago. He was thoughtful, attentive, and considerate. He had our best interest at heart.I felt like we were more than clients, we were friends. He kept in touch with us periodically over the years. This year when we decided to sell our home, he was without a doubt the only person we would consider to sell our home. Again, his service was above and beyond our lofty expectations. We had multiple offers above asking price the first weekend. Our home ended up closing within 45 days (lightening fast in Hawaiian Time!) of being listed well above asking with Jon handling all the details flawlessly. I trust Jon's knowledge, experience, and customer service. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. Eddiehahn423
Jon Mann has helped our family in so many ways. He found a home for my daughter and her husband. They were first time homebuyers and he patiently helped them to find the perfect home. At the same time he helped us to sell the townhouse they were living in. The transition was seamless. Timing was perfect, as they were signing papers to close on their new house, we were closing the deal on the sale of the townhouse! Jon Manns expertise and professionalism is top notch. I recommend him totally. dmtlvangels
Jon helped us to find the perfect home in Honolulu, meeting with us several times on our vacations in to the island, always willing to meet our schedule, and helping us to hone in on area, building and unit. His expertise is top notch, and his client service is even beyond that! I would recommend Jon without any hesitation for his knowledge, service, and just being such an incredibly easy person to work with. Oh, and his follow through, always on top of things, always touching base. #1 agent in Honolulu as far as we are concerned. gary4797
Jon helped my wife and I purchase our first home. I think the best way to describe him would be that he is one of the best professionals, in any occupation, I have worked with, and we're lucky that he was recommended to us. He has a rare and exceptional balance of both expertise and amiability. He was extremely patient and helpful with my plethora of detailed questions and concerns, and went above and beyond to help us work through various issues that cropped up during the escrow process. His approach is very calm and analytical, which was a perfect fit for us. I'm looking forward to my next real estate transaction so that I can hopefully work with him again. zuser20150530202422542
My husband and I just purchased our dream home here in Honolulu, Hawaii with the help of our incredibly brilliant real estate agent, Jon Mann. We found Jon through his invaluable and insightful ebook sold on amazon "How to buy a Home in Hawaii" that we purchased and read cover to cover. We so deeply hoped that Jon would be our real estate agent but honestly didn't think there was any way that that would be possible. When he replied to our email and said that he would be delighted to take us on...we were THRILLED!!! We knew we had the best, most intelligent, knowledgeable, honest, hard-working guy with great connections and attention to detail. Jon not only met our expectations but exceeded them in a way I never thought possible. He saved us thousands and THOUSANDS of dollars on our loan by recommending a lender who provided us with better rates and rebates than what were getting currently. He saved us HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of dollars by negotiating a purchase price that my husband and I didn't think was possible. He provided us with an exceptional team that worked day and night to get this deal done with such ease and grace. Jon and his team are like family to us and I will forever recommend them to every friend and family member that is looking to buy in Hawaii. I can't imagine a more perfect experience and I feel so incredibly blessed. smthoma98
John is very professional and knowledgeable. He is very plesant to work with and has a great personality. John helped us find our forever home on oahu. He not only listened to what our must- haves and needs were but was able to find us a home fitting for our family. We highly recommend john. Johnathan Choe
My husband and I are first time home buyers and Jon Mann made the process of buying a home so easy. He took the time to get to know us and what we were really looking for in a home. When it was time to shop around, Jon was very accommodating and was always willing to set up an appointment to see a property as soon as possible. I would email him wanting to see a property and if it was available, we would meet him the very next day to see it. Communication with Jon was open and easy and that is one of the things I appreciated the most about Jon. Even when he was off island at one time, he would take the time to respond to our emails and answer our many questions. When we decided to put an offer on a home was when he knew Jon really works hard for his clients. We had an issue with the seller, but with Jon on our team, he really tried to make things right for us and for that, we are thankful. Jon also kept us on track during the process of actually purchasing our home. There were a few setbacks that were strictly due to the bank, but Jon made sure to communicate with them to keep us up to date. My husband and I had taken first time home buying classes and one of the things we were taught was to build a good home buying team. Through our experience, we learned that this is crucial if you want a smooth process. Jon was the most important asset to our team because of his professionalism, knowledge, and his willingness to accommodate his clients. We would recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home. I know when it’s time to sell our property and buy a new home, Jon will be the first person we call. cpv3
Jon Mann is a thorough, responsive and complete professional real estate agent. He communicates regularly and well. After having a very negative experience with another realtor, Jon took over. Within a month of my contacting him he had sold my co-op, managed the process perfectly and escrow was closed successfully. He is as good as it gets. matesrichard
Jon Mann was an excellent resource for buying and selling real estate on the island of Oahu in Hawaii. We personally used Jon to purchase our condo and then subsequently to sell the condo. Jon’s knowledge of the area real estate market was invaluable in both of our transactions. Jon has excellent marketing and negotiating skills which are absolutely necessary in this current market. We highly recommend that anyone interested in purchasing or selling here in Oahu use Jon as a resource in the transaction. djbreuker
****TWO REVIEWS included; immediately below is feedback during the sale of property, and the other, further below is feedback after the property sold. In summary, Jon S. Mann is an exceptionally experienced Realtor with integrity! ****** This following portion of the review is for the stages prior to selling our property: Hi Zillow Readers, you owe it to yourself to talk to Jon Mann when you’re interviewing Realtors for property the state of Hawaii – here’s our experience with Jon Mann: Highest Praise for Realtor Jon Mann: We have only the highest praise for our Realtor, Jon Mann, and can wholeheartedly attest that Jon Mann is the real estate professional every client dreams to find as they interview agents. Discovering & Keeping Jon Mann as our Realtor: We had heard great things through our Hawaii network about Jon’s skill/real estate knowledge and actively sought him as our Realtor for a property purchase in our home state of Hawaii. Since then, he has been our real estate agent, guide and advisor on several separate property purchases in Hawaii, all of which we still own today. Exceptional Experience, Commitment & Customer Service: Jon’s real estate experience and knowledge combined with his commitment to exceptional customer service and prompt, timely communication is unparalleled. His ability to solve problems is amazing. We remember one time when the bank required, at the 11th hour, a set of ancient blueprints with a supporting document as a mandatory requirement of approving our loan and, yet, it was that holiday week of Christmas when many board of directors and businesses are closed or are on limited hours or providing limited business services due to the holidays. Jon Mann was able to get a copy of the ancient blueprints and supporting document(s) to the loan officer within hours of the request! Jon’s determination to get the task done meant peace of mind for us and the purchase was successfully completed in a timely manner. If You’re Looking for Realtor Credibility & Professionalism: If you are looking for a real estate professional with that rare combination of credibility, competence and who will be your trusted guide, advisor and advocate as you make your dream of property ownership come true (or expand your holdings), then please contact Jon Mann; you’ll soon discover his professionalism is impeccable.

There is absolutely no other Realtor we trust as much as Jon Mann and will happily refer him to others again and again. *********** The review portion below is feedback on our experience with Jon S. Mann, in hindsight, after our property was sold: *********** Jon S. Mann is such an exceptionally experienced Realtor that I want you to know about him when you are considering real estate properties in the state of Hawaii: Jon Mann, my real estate agent, on the island of Oahu, just made my day again! This time, instead of buying yet another residential property in Hawaii, we decided to sell one of our well-cared-for properties so that we can strategically prepare for the next property purchase in the next calendar year. Since Jon Mann is very experienced in the real estate market, he had some really great ideas to market my property. His marketing proved so effective that at the Realtors' Open, 2 days before the first open house, we received a very strong offer generously above our asking price! The Buyer was pre-approved and the selling/buying process went smoothly even when the bank, one of the biggest business banks in Hawaii, asked for proof of a document from several years ago. The Buyer's real estate agent, though experienced, was befuddled. But not my wonderful real estate agent, Jon Mann. Jon's own experience and network of real estate professionals soon resulted in a quick solution for all parties involved and now we are all celebrating. He delivers results without stepping on anybody's toes. I really like that Jon Mann is my Realtor. He's calm, friendly, personable, skilled and knowledgeable in navigating the state of Hawaii's real estate process. Jon Mann is also highly professional and has great follow-through. We are so glad that Jon Mann is willing to work with us again and again in our goal to keep strengthening our real estate portfolio – we are the lucky ones because Jon S. Mann is a realtor with integrity and exceptional experience. Very respectfully, Mitchel and Susie I. (Owners of 4 separate properties on the island of Oahu, state of Hawaii)
This portion of our post is right after we bought our home. I just want to say thanks Jon, for the pleasure of having you as our realtor. Our experience was wonderful, and we love our new home! To the readers: We struggled, as most home owner’s do, to find a house online on their own. It was not a fun search and we couldn’t find anything that fit our needs and price point. Luckily, we met Jon through an apartment showing which he was doing pro bono. My wife and I liked him and he seemed like a great guy. The next day, we called him back and asked him to be our realtor; we are so happy we did!” “From the moment we started working with Jon, he was always looking out for our best interests. He was very in-tune and was constantly looking out for our needs and wants in our new home. He communicated every detail to us regularly and helped us understand the timeline of purchasing a house, as well as the differences with buying a house in Hawaii. He advised us on every decision; moreover, he pointed out the qualities of every property in addition to helping us understand the potential issues with each home. His honesty and integrity was inspiring and bar none, the best we’ve ever experienced. This portion is 9 months after the purchase. We constantly talk about how happy we are in our new home and we have to thank Jon for helping us find it. While looking on our own, we had a pretty good idea of what we wanted, but without him, we wouldn't have been able to find it. Without his expertise, knowledge and astute interviewing skills, we wouldn't have been able to find the home the fit our needs. He was able to take our wants and turn them into a reality. If you ever get the pleasure of hiring Jon as your realtor, you won't be disappointed. He'll do everything you need and ask, plus more! Thanks again for finding us an amazing home and congrats on being hired by the Hawaii Life Real Estate team. Jesse & Mandie
